Kraft Under Fire for Sexualizing Mac n Cheese
"When you think of macaroni and cheese what comes to mind comfort food and easy cheap meal for you your kids or your broke college student or something more risque. Wait if I confused you just now clearly, you miss the drama that happened earlier this month for kraft, Heinz the maker of the number one boxed Mac and cheese in America wound up embroiled in controversy over an ad campaign that most definitely attracted attention to celebrate National Noodle Day October six. In case you missed it on your calendar Somehow Kraft Heinz launched a playful campaign suggesting people send nudes that is noodles to friends and family. The double meaning of course was intentional sending nudes could mean sending nude photos in some of their ads, pictures of a box of Mac and cheese were deliberately out of focus as if the company was hiding something you know. And video featured former Saturday night live actor Vanessa Bayer. Trying to make the distinction between noodles and nudes. It's been pulled from crafts social channels, which I'll get to in a minute but take a listen clear not advocating you send nudes to anyone I'm talking about news not news I want there to be no confusion do not send nudes definitely send news even as it sent social media into a tizzy the campaign was a hit twenty thousand comfort loving tweeter took the brand up on its offer to mail free boxes of the cheesy stuff to loved ones. But unless you subscribe to the theory that all publicity is good publicity, the backlash created a craft crisis parents tore into the multibillion dollar brand on instagram. They said sexualizing macaroni was inappropriate for kids and accused craft of inciting children to send nude pictures. Many angry viewers threatened to ban kraft MAC and cheese from their pantries and turn instead to rivals like Annie's Mac and cheese owned by General Mills, some threatened to boycott. All craft products and some critics went even further according to buzzfeed Cunanan supporters got into the act. buzzfeed describes Cunanan as a collective delusion believers in what has also been called a right wing conspiracy theory subscribed to a number of different baseless notions including that something called the deep state promotes child sex trafficking buzzfeed reported that some Cunanan believers accused craft hines of using it's Mac and cheese nudes campaign for just this purpose. In the end, the company pulled its campaign in a statement brand officials stated, blandly, we sincerely appreciate and hear all of your feedback. As it happened, the news promotion was intended to end only a few days after it began anyway, whether craft considers its campaign, a win or a loss is hard to tell at the moment but consider this not only did craft managed to. Give away thousands of boxes of noodles but the controversy generated thousands of mentions on social media and in the press also keep in mind that making processed foods. Sexy is not a new idea for kraft. Heinz back in February of Twenty nineteen long before our world was upended, the company ran an actual ad on a porn site likening Mac and cheese attraction to addiction to. Well something else entirely that adds steely promoted devour a kraft Heinz frozen food line. That made headlines and sales. It's a big deal for consumer packaged foods players like Kraft Heinz Kellogg in Unilever Comfort food sales have fattened up during the pandemic now officials from Kraft Heinz, and Kellogg promised market very aggressively during the second half of this year to keep momentum up according to industry publication marketing dive given the ferocious rivalry between giant packaged food companies. There's really only one conclusion to draw about a brand that doesn't just go to the edge of tasteful nece but jumps right over it. Even today's cancel culture craft Heinz knows. Exactly. What it's doing.
Pete Hines (SVP Global Marketing & Communications, Bethesda Softworks) Discusses Bethesda's Purchase by Microsoft
"To say we have. Worked closely. With Microsoft, for pretty much my entire time at them, the FESDAY, it's a company we know well They were the ones who really gave us the incentive to change from just being a PC only developer which we were when I started back in ninety nine we we developed and made games only on the PC and decided to make the leap for a game called the eldest group elder scrolls, three more wind for the original xbox and honestly in in part because at their urging, hey, this this console could could handle could do the kind of games that you all make an RPG like yours. Could do pretty well on our system and that was sort of the early days of what has become no a two decade relationship between ourselves and a lot of folks over there who we very much like and respect to chief amongst them obviously being Phil, Spencer and. In terms of his vision how how he sees the the future of Microsoft how we fit in that future? and how this this acquisition can lead to. A future for for both of us, that is sort of win win win. In that we get support and resources that allow us to make even bigger and better games with their help. You know if I've I've worked with I've worked as a publisher who is a third party publisher and developers who have all had to be third party developers for very long time. The opportunity of join somebody and essentially be treated as a first party. Developer publisher is pretty darn appealing in terms of. Access to resources or the conversations you get to have not just in like what are you need to make the? Game better but like from console support standpoint from a systems level standpoint are there things you need us to do, and again we've been in this industry a long time, and so we hear the stories behind the scene about first party games. They get a certain features or special support from Sony or Microsoft Nintendo to lower a first party game to do something particular and you know you talked our developers that's pretty appealing I. Think it's Great for Microsoft as well because I think we bring a lot of additional pedigree to an already very strong lineup and stable of developers look I believe in walking softly and carrying a big stick but. I've been doing this for a long time like we're pretty good catch like we make a lot of really good games. We've made a lot of game of the year stuff and bestseller stuff and in a variety of different. Genres and if I step it, take my Bethesda hat off for a minute. were pretty good get and I, think we ultimately make them better as a company to be a part of what they're doing. And the other one is I think this will ultimately be a win for fans and for gamers because at the end of the day, the thing that we have always believed first and foremost is look making games as a pain in the ass it's hard. It's a lot of work over a lot of years on a lot of people. Spent big chunks of their lives working on these games, and we spent a lot of money making them, and at the end of the day, we want as many people as possible to be able to play what what it is. We make and Microsoft is very much in the same camp of we want to help you get your games to the widest audience possible which. Means that you people are going to be able to play our games you know all over the place you know not just on a specific console, not just on your PC, but what they do with X. God streaming, and now streaming being something that we as a company have looked into and worked on some some things there in terms of moving that forward as viable. Technology that you know. Sure. I'll I'll have people playing sky rim doom fallout fill in number here on his many devices as we can, and so at the end of the day I think it is a good cultural fit at think it's a good philosophical fit and I think it's a good fit where our strengths play welded their strengths and advisers. Yeah. So so just falling because there's another question was sort of desperate Ted to ask in S, which is so you said you know protest is a good gap ripe and totally agree I mean they're assuming credible brands in the portfolio that s to has, but also you guys weren't cheap. You know the acquisition is William. It's worth mentioning your benchmark right as we as a benchmark on the. Might might benchmarked requisitions is Star Wars Disney bought star wars that was like two billion dollars, right? That's kind of my benchmark. So I large acquisitions I value in multiple. Multiple. Star. Wars. Yeah. But then. Again, I mean three point, five star wars like that is a lot of. A lot of stars that's actually more star wars than actually art films, in stores, mainland. So Seriously, though like just. Valuation, obviously, you know Microsoft sophisticated buyer you know you guys must've deserved it. But where is that value coming from? Is it the IP juicy? The value in elder scrolls fall out things like that is at the studios in the talent is it something else like if Microsoft we're gonNA say there were seven billion dollars for X. Y. and Z. What are the buckets that value is getting created We'll. Certainly it's the things that you mentioned we we do have a lot of pretty strong IP's. Elder scrolls a massive brand for US fallout doom Wolfenstein. We've we've got a lot of stuff that has value and legacy right and not stuff that we just came up with five years ago right? Doom started and Wolfenstein started the popularity of were the existence of first person shooters a really long time ago so whether it's RPG's or first person shooters I do think we have very strong piece I also believe we have really good pedigree in our studios in terms of every studio that we have. That is part of our company that we've shipped a game with has won at least one game of the year award for what they've made a except for one developer and that's pretty impressive. When you talk about a whole wide variety of studios different locations, very different genres, actions you know first person send stuff, really bloody violent kill Nazi stuff kill demons post apocalyptic fantasy. We do a lot of different stuff. So I do think there's a lot of talent I also think that and I've I've heard Phil talk about this is he had a lot of respect for the fact that it's Not just that we have talent but that were willing to take chances and try and push things forward and break ground right? We didn't just participate in Vr like we were you know primary catalyst for VR

Preparing For Perimenopause: You Don't Have To Do It Alone
"Today I'm joined by NPR health correspondent and reproductive fairy godmother Chatterjee for some real talk about peri menopause. We're GONNA talk about how the physical symptoms can come with a host of emotional and mental health symptoms to which some people don't realize right exactly But before I say more I just WanNa say that I. Think. I. Love My new title Reproductive Fairy Godmother but anyway getting back to business yes. So sure would go yeah. The physical symptoms can come with a host of emotional mental health symptoms absolutely. So take for example, woman I spoke with Terry, hines now about a decade ago when Terry was in her mid forties how period started to change it increased in frequency it increased in intensity and increased endurance. Now she had some of the classic symptoms of paramount applause laycock flashes, chills started gaining weight which many women do during this time but the would notable changes to her mental health to they just did not have the energy to do the things that I wanted to do was such a fog over who I was what I wanted whereas going. What I was capable of accomplishing I just could not find my footing at the time. Terry. Lived alone in Philadelphia where she worked as an assistant principal at a school. And she really struggled to get out of bed and good work and do the things that she loved to do like taking her dogs for morning walk and she began to withdraw from her friends as well. Yeah. To speaking from experience these all sound like symptoms of depression. You know self-isolation foggy nece low energy exactly, and you know the thing is that Terry actually struggled with depression before and had sought treatment for it and she knew her symptoms she knew what triggers and that that was usually a big change in her personal professional life. But this time though she says, she was just so focused on all the physical changes going on in her body because of premenopausal that her emotional struggles at first, they didn't even register in a mind. Oh so on top of Peri, Menopause Terry was managing depression to exactly and that's not uncommon. Among individuals who have had previous diagnoses or of clinical depression anxiety and this data suggesting that in the leader stages of paramount applause as many as thirty percent of women experience depressive symptoms. I want to put this on the evening news like all persons who experienced presents should be made aware of this. So they're prepared. I mean that's a huge number. So do you have a sense of biologically why they're such a spike? Right. So it's a stage of life when your hormone levels are changing, it's all changing your periods of changing your hormonal Goals are all sort of you know going awry and that can trigger intense changes in mood and psychiatrists that I talk to for the story said that if you're experiencing depression or anxiety during paramount a pause. It's not the changes in your hormonal cycles are unusual. Lawrence say dramatically different from somebody else's but it's more likely that you bring is more sensitive to these changes. So if you've experienced depression before you're more sensitive experiencing it when going through peri menopause exactly now, the other reason is that paramedic plus isn't just a biological change, right? It's also a huge life transition. Because they're all these changes in your body Sharon, it's a big part of aging which coming to terms with your metabolism might be slowing down. You might be mostly processing these things as well, and any big life transitions can affect people's emotional wellbeing

"hines" Discussed on Fantasy Football Today
"It's like talk about staying power I, I am surprised to hear you guys both take any snow number one because if Congress Yankee. Around I I, I have no problem with somebody wants take Malcolm Brown I. But if you just follow what the reports were this off season that they're events are going to turn the job over to cam makers and the fact that he's still got fourteen carries in this game. Yeah. Being designed that they WANNA work him up and get him close to being ready to go to eventually take over. That job so I don't know how long Brown will be like this playing like this doing what he did. He was fantastic over four yards per carry like you said, three catches was great to see I don't think dialysis run defense is going to be very good. Especially vanish leaving the game. So if that's the best indication of how good he can be, we'll find out but I think Again, long-term is what you should be thinking as well as just week to, and so Malcolm Brown may not be the leading rusher for the rams for a several weeks span. long-term. I is it fair to say that hines has the clearest long-term outlet? Yes Okay And I basically. I mean is it fair to say Naim hines basically to Cohen maybe with more carries you know which is what we said that the be prior to the NFL draft. When they got filled rivers because he also. Yeah I guess. So they've said he's on pace for one hundred, twenty, eight catches. I've been saying all along seventy because he averaged fifty four catches in his first two years. So seventy was kind of the number I was looking at for him with Philip Rivers. I mean he may shatter that. It just as bad as it looked against Jacksonville he may shatter that well hopefully hopefully, it isn't that bad. Yeah Heinsohn. They played a couple of games without Marlin MAC. Last year hines had nine carries and one of those games he had four carries and a rushing touchdown. Another one of those games oddly enough you only had two catches in those games, but it's a different offense with the different quarterback who throws to his running back all the time. What James Robinson, who is roster and sixty nine percent of leagues is available. Where would you put him and I'll give Jamie's priorities again in art was Snell Hines Malcolm Brown Kelly in non PR was Snell. Brown hines Kelly if James Robinson is out there what do you do? I. I mean. He he he had a good game wasn't like. Blow your mind good game against the goals. But the fact that he had every every kid a cherry for the Jaguars and was involved in the passing game that shows you how much they like this kid and so We'll find out what they're gonNA eventually do with Mike while Armstead and Divino Zibo, you know when those guys are healthy and ready to go but there's a chance armstead may not play anytime soon and those Igbo who knows how that ankles GonNa you know recover. I think you're looking at Robinson as the guy for the Jaguars and the last couple of weeks you know once they got rid of four net that's all we've heard is how much they like this? What if Sony Michelle's available? He's sent rostered. Nah. I would put him behind I'd put behind all those other guys you know maybe have Kelly. If you need somebody to play right away just because you know he'll get guaranteed touches but I'd rather have. Kelly personally. Guys, is going to be a really tough week to set your priority. You're going to have so much foam. Oh, and they're going to be a ton of players that you want. Because you know in some of your leagues, a guy like James crowder might be available Daria Sleet and might be available even though they're roster and eighty percent of leagues right and then, and then there's the Paris Campbell in the viscous Chenault and there's Dallas Goddard and maybe you even want to Stream Logan Thomas this week and and all these running. Backs and then you've got Josh Adams of the world and the miles gaskins of the world where it's like, yeah, you know for gases. Okay. He's probably not going to be the dolphins starting running back. Maybe he will be as three solid games in a row for him dating back to last year respectable games. So players that sort of needs to be roster just to see where it goes. I don't know I mean we get a few weeks every year. What's like the waiver wire is loaded the waiver wires loaded right now isn't it? Now. It's Lee. The. Star quality wide receivers not there unless the guys that you mentioned are available around eighty percent range you know so. Anthony Miller's journals the Campbell's of the world they're not going to necessarily draw as much attention as the four running backs. We talked about daughter You know those those kinds of players because of what either they shown you in the past or the ability that they have after what you saw in week one. So that's the difference between those type of moves you could be making, but I do think you're going to see some scenarios week to and beyond you're like, Oh my God, I could have picked up Campbell or I could have picked up. For basically nothing and I missed on that because I didn't make a second waiver claim or third waiver claim or third FAB move to drop somebody who you may be hanging onto a and again, you don't want to overreact a week one. So you know like the guys that I listed to drop their some big name players there but you just have to sort of gauge which roster look like and what the upside versus the downside of some of these scenarios can be. And listen. We've a twitch stream tonight at eight o'clock pm. Eastern twitch..

An attempted Coup in the US
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries either host Kit Chrome today the story of a coup against one of the presidents of the United States today's Podcast is the result of myth and mystery coming together to form a truth, a truth confirmed by data revealed by both the Freedom of Information Act an archive letters regarding lawsuits against the Bush family made public in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, eight. This podcast is without political bias and exists only to. demystify myth and mystery whenever possible in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty, three, a group of Americans wealthiest businessman powerbrokers including the grandfather of George W Bush Prescott Bush plan to stage a coup against then President Franklin Roosevelt to change the regime one year later retired Marine Corps. Major General smedley Butler revealed applaud the wait Prescott Sheldon Bush was an American banker and politician Wall Street executive partner the Brown brothers and a US senator he was the Father President. George H. W Bush in the grandfather to President George W Bush he attended Yale and was a member of the skull and bones. Prescott Bush seems larger than life and he was a business plot in nineteen thirty three referred to as the white. House. Coup was led in part by Prescott. Bush, the purpose of the alleged conspiracy was to replace the Roosevelt Administration with a fascist dictatorship, a coalition of many influential billionaires and powerbrokers led by Prescott Bush. Plan the coup the reason behind this attempt was the policies of the Roosevelt Administration towards the business world the owners of some of the biggest corporations like General Motors. Goodyear Chase Bank and hines thought the government would destroy private enterprise. Thus, they wanted to create a business friendly zine so that they could preserve their power. However, the coup plan came to light when smedley Butler a retired burning corps major general alerted authorities in Washington DC of the conspiracy. According to his statement. So mysterious bankers and businessmen approached him and asked him to command an army of veterans who fought in World War one in order to stage a coup and overthrow the democratically elected President Franklin Delano Roosevelt Butler was a popular military figure then, and he also had influence over the veterans. That's why they chose him a committee investigated the allegations and Declared that some Wall Street elites were involved in the conspiracy but nobody was charged go figure. Then there was Prescott involvement with the Brown brothers the financial architects of Nazism the documents from the National Archives showed that the bushes and Brown brothers shipped valuable US assets including gold coal steel at US Treasury war bonds to their foreign clients overseas as Hitler geared up for his.

Kodak Crashes 85% from Recent Peak
"Kodak. We've been all over this for the past two weeks. Right I told you they got a seven hundred and sixty five million dollar loan to get into the drug. Business Kodak the Film Camera Company getting into the drug business. Turns out in their one hundred thirty, one year history they actually were in the drug business for six years from one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, hundred, ninety, four, it was a failure they got out and it's notable that they got in one thousand nine, hundred, eighty, two years before the recession set in right typical top of the cycle de Worse vacation kind of acquisition move for for a company is being managed into into the ground so. That's where it to the reason episode again and and we're back in the drug business with this seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan from the government I thought that was just kind of crazy enough all by itself because sent the stock soaring from to sixty two on a Monday to sixty dollars at the peak on a Wednesday in you know the third trading session of the week that week. Just insane. That was crazy enough right. Then what are we talk about last week? Well, they granted themselves stock options the day before announcement like that's not fishy like. Crony capitalist move, you know to just try to rake some of his money off the top of the management team. Okay. Now. This Week There's well other stuff going on. So so since last we talked the SEC is investigating this thing. And the loan from the. International, the government agencies called the DNC, the Development Finance Corporation the DNC loan is on hold. And the stock as I speak Ios below ten bucks again, and if you look at the stock chart of the last several days, it looks like it was flatlined. You know like somebody whose heart stopped and then wham the hit it with the paddles and now it looks like his heart stopped again it's a ridiculous episode but I feel like I need to clarify something because of at least one feedback email I got in this case. No, it is not okay for these executives to get stock option grants it's not okay and it wasn't okay for them to get them. I don't believe even back in May. Right I put together a time line I wrote a whole piece about this for the stands very digest and I put together a time line and my timeline showed that the order the executive order from President Trump. Was May fourteenth. Two days before that Kodak moves seventy million dollars from a Chinese subsidiary to a US subsidiary quote in anticipation of an intercompany transaction and quote I believe starting up a new pharmaceutical subsidiary constitutes an intercompany transaction, right? So that was actually made twelfth may fourteenth. Trump is used the executive order and invokes the defense production act and says, Hey, you know, let's lend money to companies so that we can produce drugs domestically because too much drug production is overseas in places like China and India by the way if you research that, it's not completely true. We'll talk about that. Maybe another day Kodak made the director option grants the first time on May twentieth today their annual meeting. So, eight days before they're moving money from Chinese from a foreign subsidiary to to a US subsidiary anticipation of a major transaction. Then trump invokes this defense production act, which is just appropriates money for national security right two days later, then six days later, they grant themselves these options at premium prices. Then approximately may eighth according to an interview with the CEO Kodak, and this government agencies start talking about its new drug business. Then on July twenty seven, these idiots grant themselves more options. Then July twenty eighth and it leaks out stock was up twenty, five percent that day the news leaked out. and. Then Twenty John Twenty as the big announcement right? Seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan to Kodak the shares were up four fold that day July twenty, ninth the stock price hit sixty dollars. And the volume that day is like a hundred and sixty times the previous day and the previous day was twenty, two times the David were that. Next Day July thirtieth a fellow called Mike or non gap thoughts. Which is a a newsletter that he writes on sub stack non gap thoughts. He writes this article citing these suspicious option grant dates when and strike prices next day July thirty fourth. Wall Street? Journal publishes an article citing the potential you know ninety, they said ninety five million dollar windfall for CEO Jim Continente. And there were others on on the Management Team received the options to August. Fourth Wall Street Journal publishes an article citing a new SEC investigation into the disclosure of the loan and the option grants right because it looked like the the loan with the news of the Lomas leaked out on the twenty seventh I think is really what they were concerned about. But the whole thing stinks and let me tell you something what I alluded to earlier when I said I need to make something clear about this. This is not the way capitalism is supposed to work. A corporate management team is supposed to make a lot of money. They're supposed to get ninety five million dollars for creating a business that has performed well for a period of time. That has generated you know for ninety, five, million bucks. You'd better be generating you know at least a billion or more couple of billion hopefully in free cash flow over a period of time consistently, right a real sustainable business for that kind of reward. You don't get paid that kind of money just for getting a loan to be in a business that you were in for six years out of your one, hundred, thirty, one year history and sucked at. Okay that's not the way this is supposed to work. This is the ranking crony capitalism, the EST crony capitalism. And crony capitalism is when you get paid for no in people, right it starts looking suspicious back in May when they're moving seventy million bucks from China to the US, it looks like they already knew they were going to do something and then Oh, two days later trump invokes this this executive order appropriating these loans for this kind of stuff and then up six days. Later, we start granting ourselves options at prices that suggests we know the stock is GonNa take off like a rocket ship. Then we do it again on July twenty seven just to show you how utterly stupid we are. This is not the way it's supposed to work they basically what they did here was. They just took money from well, you know this government money. So you could say they took taxpayer money and they said how can we get way too much of this money in our own pockets? Oh, I know let's grant ourselves a bunch of options. Okay, your stand. Now, I don't have a problem with option grants in general I. Realize people need to be incentivized. It's just the way. Things are nowadays right to to attract good management. You gotta pay them. What looks like way too much money a lot of the time, but this is not that. This is a management team taking money from taxpayers and really taken ultimately from shareholders as well. They're given themselves equity for free that the shareholders have to buy in the market. This isn't the only episode of this. You'RE GONNA see there was a smaller episode that I I kinda filed this way I didn't think I was going to mention it but there was a guy. David? T hines in a story in the Washington. Post. July. Twenty Eighth I mean it's all allegations so I don't know I'll just say this poor fool apparently borrowed four million dollars in this federal PPP paycheck paycheck protection program it was part of the cares act. Right. The cares act was that two trillion dollar corona virus bill that was signed into law in March and included three hundred and forty, nine billion in forgivable loans for small businesses to maintain operating expenses. Mostly payroll, right? That's why it's called. PAYCHECK protection program. So you can just pay your employees even though maybe you're running a restaurant and they have to stay home because of the cove in nineteen, right. So this guy gets four million from this program and then a week later people see him riding around. Miami beach in a Lamborghini. A brand new Lamborghini Lamborghini. Hurricana. Which I guess. That's an electric Lamborghini costs more than three hundred, eighteen, thousand dollars again, how stupid is this guy? That's like granting yourself options the day before the loan announcement. And of course, these things are ripe for. For, this kind of abuse, this is what you get went when the government starts literally like throwing money around all, this is done very very hastily right because we think we have to act we have to act now. and. So this is what you wind up with. You wind up with Kodak and you wind up with this poor sad sack who who thought he wasn't GonNa get caught when he use P P peabody to buy a fricking Lamborghini. It's you know somebody's going to include that in some kind of TV you know some kind of fictional TV show because it's just too priceless. So that's where we are that. That's where we are in. You know the state of of all things financial in August of twenty twenty. Boy Twenty twenty is the weirdest fricken year. I mean things that I won't even get into some of the things that that people I know have been exposed to this year, but it's just. So it's also utterly weird when you shut who who'd a thunk who'd a thunk when you shut down the global economy because you're afraid everybody's going to get the flu or whatever. That all of this stuff would happen that you would get people you know in Lamborghinis with government money and you know Kodak Management taking money out of taxpayers, pockets would have thunk it. Anybody. With a brain is the answer to that one anybody with a brain. And what what you do about what you do about it well. Look we told I told you to avoid Kodak because. People look at that kind of action and the knee jerk. The thing that's built into your brain you know that's that's been kind of evolving for hundreds of thousands of years in complete evolved for hundreds of thousands of years completely different circumstances that have nothing to do with investing. So immediately, as soon as you see that surge Kodak you want hit the buy button but I'm telling you it's deadly and wrong every single time
LGBTQ+ representation in cybersecurity
"You tell me some some some juicy bits from your autobiography? What kind of stuff? Are we going to cover here. Let's let's you know. Let's let's for a little bit not too much but just a little bit for the readers. I'd have to be careful because I gotta take care of my boy Jim minutes. Oliver Wiley Okay Yeah so great guy by the way. Cool cat. So. Widely doesn't publish autobiographies. So technically I checked call it that it is a non fictional narrative. I am. Real territory between more autobiography whatever exactly. Exactly. But so yeah, it's it's really it's my coming up story. It's my former life and my former skin you know as Eric Hines. And and Not. So where does say that name And you know my transition and really you sort of becoming Loki. Where I transitioned in two thousand and eight, and my journey is a trans woman in. A male dominated world male dominated industry in cybersecurity. My world is cyber security right and You know what that experience has been like just. It's interesting for me because it's very. it's a very unique perspective being able to say that I've lived my life is to completely different sexes to completely different genders you know and and living my life is a man living my life as a woman It's very interesting because you don't really prepare for that. You don't prepare because is a man you read about the inequality. Roy of of men and women in the workplace. The wage disparity being passed up for job opportunities in the workplace as a woman over a man with the same or less credentials or experience. It's a real thing and I didn't prepare myself for what that would be like and it's it's you would hope that. An industry as as you know, new is cyber security. 'cause if you think about cyber security isn't very old, it's not like us. Our banking. Or. Investing, it's it's A. It's a nascent industry that we are trying to figure out as we go right and So you would think it would be more progressive. When it comes to equality and inclusion in. It's not you know and I. You know there was a tweet storm that occurred. I. Think you brought it up in a previous episode where I got involved in to a thread that actually became my most viral tweet and it was a about a gentleman who made the made the statement that cybersecurity moves too. Fast for women run and and that women would rather be at home and be homemakers and be family oriented versus being in Cybersecurity, and it was shocking to me is this is this is a very prevalent narrative for some reason You know there's a lot of people that believe that you know, hey, a cybersecurity isn't for women and here's why. I always from played devil's advocate I was trying look at it from other people's perspective But it's hard to find out a lot of things I'm reading. Because you know I mean there's there's a lot of I think. There's a lot of things that people need to be educated on when it comes to just women issues, but trans issues like you know there's this belief and I hear it a lot. That Trans women shouldn't be allowed to participate in Women Only Sports, right? That's so stupid to me. You know and is in I think it was actually South Rogan's podcast where he actually talked about this and in the narrative is being spread a lot. I understand I think from that perspective but people don't understand that when you go through hr it. Your upper body strength as a as a man as man's body gets depleted you know your your upper body strength. Pretty much goes away in deteriorates. There are women on the tennis court. I. Used to be a competitive used to play tennis competitively and go to tournaments, and there's women biological women that could kick my ass on the tennis court you know and their biological women have. Much, more per body strength than me and you know I think it's an I. Don't think it's ignorance I. Think it's education. It's it's. A learning curve. Yeah and like like for example, martial arts, you know there are biological women that could wipe the floor with. And and you know so I think I think it's educating people understanding and also the unique perspectives were probably talk about the blog article here in a minute unique perspectives at the Lgbtq community brings two teams brings to the workplace. Yeah. that that that you may not find in a less inclusive culture
Florida man accused of using coronavirus relief funds to buy Lamborghini
"Florida man receives three point nine million dollars in Covid nineteen relief funds Biza Lamborghini and gets arrested for fraud by just SI- abates a Florida man has been charged with fraud and other criminal offenses after receiving three point nine million dollars in covid. Nineteen relief funds and using the money to purchase among other things a Lamborghini. David T hines twenty nine was arrested on Friday and charged on Monday according to a statement by the Department of Justice over three million dollars has been seized from his bank accounts along with the sports vehicle. Authorities allege that hinds fraudulently applied for about thirteen point five million dollars in paycheck protection program P. P P loans for a few companies P P P part of the corona virus aid relief and Economic Security Act was enacted on March twenty ninth to provide small businesses with forgivable loans. Any money given to accompany on behalf of the program is supposed to be used for rent or mortgage costs, employee, salaries and utilities. According to the DOJ statement, Heinz lied on the loan applications and made inaccurate statements about the expenses of the companies including the amount paid to employees. Those purported employees either did not exist or earned a fraction of what hines claimed his P. P P applications. US Postal Inspector Brian McMillan says in an affidavit, according to the Miami Herald collectively hines falsely claimed his companies paid millions of dollars in payroll in the first quarter of twenty twenty state and bank records however show little to no payroll expense during this period. Hines was approved for funding and received three point nine million dollars just a few days after getting the money, he bought the Lamborghini for three hundred eighteen thousand dollars. He is also alleged to have purchased luxury items from stores and resorts. In the past few weeks. Florida has become one of the hot spots for US Covid, nineteen cases and recently passed New York for having the second most confirmed cases in the country behind California. Hines was in federal custody over the weekend released on bond on Monday and is scheduled to be arraigned on October
Frank It Forward: How to Sell Ball Park Franks When No One's at the Ballpark
"The weirdest baseball season in history started last night. The Twenty Twenty Major League baseball season debuted with a clash between the Washington nationals in the New York Yankees, nationals park in the country's capital was packed with. Virtual fans, that's right, the fans you may have seen on TV. Were just images manufactured for the cameras by Fox Sports? In reality, the teams play to an empty stadium because of covid nineteen. This season teams will play only sixty games down from the typical one hundred sixty two right now. There's no intention to have many live fans at any of them just TV cameras. We won't get into the debate about why Fox decided to manifest virtual fans complete with recorded sounds of cheering applause, and the like the TV audience know. Today, we're interested in one of those things that like baseball. Itself has always seemed timeless the stadium hotdog. Too, many of us me included a hot dog goes with the baseball game. The way hot fudge goes with vanilla ice cream. They just belong together, but not this year. Needless to say virtual fans don't order francs with mustard and onions, nor do they reach out and snack a beer from a wandering vendor that's leaving entire industry, high and dry stadium vendors are out of work. That's giving Ballpark Franks the nation's number one. One brand of hot dogs and opportunity to look philanthropic, while also promoting their dogs to fans, watching Games on the small screen on Wednesday, which not coincidentally was national hotdog, day Ballpark Franks and it is donating one hundred thousand dollars to unemployed stadium vendors through a baseball charity in campaign. They're calling frank it forward. They're also asking fans to tweet their favorite baseball memories along with the Frank. It forward Hashtag of course. For every tweet that fans post ballpark will donate an extra dollar up to fifty thousand dollars within a day. Fans had begun complying. Some tweets were clearly planted by Tyson foods. ballpark Franks owner to get the Frankfurt Frenzy on fast forward, but some were genuinely sweet like a tweet from Ban Molly, Heidrick, she finally recalled attending the thousand fifteen world series game with her dad, telling her for the entire five hours that she would be Zombie the next day at school. She said she almost caught a foul ball and yes, she couldn't stay awake in math class. Her HASHTAG, no regrets. The promotion gives a sheen of sweetness and philanthropy to the ballpark francs, which happens to be America's biggest seller of the process. Meet parent. Tyson foods of course is struggling with its image these days between having covert outbreaks at many of its meat, processing plants, and being under investigation by the Justice, Department for alleged poultry price-fixing, but on a summer night. We need to dwell on the bigger picture. Maybe. What's worth spending time on? Is The marketing rivalry between BALLPARK Franks in America's second largest brand Oscar Mayer that brand owned by Kraft, was revived three years ago when its parent put ten million dollars into removing chemicals like nitrates nitrites from its dogs, the attempt to cater to the clean eating tastes of millennials. It helped nowadays craft hines has been doing well selling its enormous variety of grocery store staples to our newly stay at home nation, but how will it compete at the? No, Fan Ballpark. Hopefully not with a repeat of its attempt from twenty nineteen, a hotdog ice cream sandwich. It was made with. Get this candied hotdog, bits, hotdogs, sweet, cream, spicy, dijon, Gelato, and a cookie Bun, according to writer Michael Clare and a Major League baseball publication called cut four last August. Clare's take on what was clearly a desperate attempt to get the upper hand in the Weiner wars. This hot dog mustard ice cream. Monstrosity needs to return to whatever hell it came from. So. Far Oscar Mayer hasn't made any announcements that one this year may be given covid nineteen craft hines got a little more sensitive about the queasiness factor when it comes to the economics of the Frankfurter fight between Tyson and craft Heinz. The ballpark matters in two thousand sixteen Americans spent twenty million dollars buying hotdogs at ball games, so says the national hot dog and Sausage Council. Council apparently, that's the last time they gathered this debt. So the biggest question this year will be. Will fans watching at home still by hotdogs, or will they just eat? Whatever happens to be for? Dinner served on a real plate, not in a little cardboard dog holding. If that happens, the frank forward campaign is unlikely to give much of an advantage to Ballpark, Franks and hopefully. WHO's out of work? hotdog vendors have already found a way to turn their talents to something more lucrative. And perhaps less greasy.
'Elder Scrolls 6' Details Still 'Years' Away, Says Bethesda VP Pete Hines
"The elder scrolls six next news will likely be years from now This is from Joe. Scowls at Aegean who writes? Don't expect details on the eligible six until years from now according to Bethesda senior vice president. Pete hines responding to a tweet asking for information about the next Gen. Game Hines was making clear. That news on the on the still fairly unknown star field is coming. Well before anything on elder scrolls have the tweet here right. Quitting Myers on at Kilowatt Q. Tweets at behind says all right check it out at which is behind his twitter. Let's cut the shit. When can we expect some info on Hashtag the girls six? We need this. Hashtag with the Hashtag elder schools. Hashtag behind responded to that saying it's after star. Fueled which you pretty much about. So we're coming to me coming at me for details now and not years from now. I'm failing to properly manage your expectations. We are in the article continues. We already know we already knew. Not to expect star field or eligible six news this year. So it'll likely be some time before we hear anything about either game but that's the won't be holding a digital replacement forty-three this year but it does plan to deliver news on death loop and go soir. Tokyo in some form. Tim Does this surprise you. it does not surprise me my favorite thing about it though is quitting. Myers the First Guy. The tweeted just straight up. Sam Cut this shit expects of Info. I love the brazing this of it. All but also hines our boy being transparent trying to come through and so the expectations right which. I think is a key element of the games industry over the last couple of years. I think has been this idea of. Hey they're people too and US people want to get to know those people and we want there to be a type of dialogue back and forth with what social media allows conversations. Like this to happen. I feel like there's no excuses to not transparent about this type of thing right when Especially when it comes to expectations and especially in a world that no longer has three and a lot. More questions are up in the air. Where every year would be like this week. What's everyone announcing? What's but they're going to do. But does this press conference because we know. But that's going to do a press conference now. We know they're not doing one. We don't know we know they're going to be parts of some of the various game festivals going on this summer. Where are they going to be? To what extent is that going to be focusing on games already know about New Games one game? It's definitely not going to be what we traditionally see from. Thanks to kind of like rolling out there. Update their entire catalog right. But I do think that this is a learning curve that everyone's going through and as we saw last week with xbox staying the I don't think anyone's ever going to nail it because people are always going to have their own expectations going into these different events. But I do think that the more you can get ahead with it. With facts of star field is next. Agusan important thing no girls six years away. That's an important thing to to get ahead of right. So people aren't even speculating. Yeah like especially for schools which is a title that you showed off or not showed up but you you literally showed off the title. I believe either last year the year before that I can remember times a flat circle at this point but you gave us the title. Our school six. I feel like I feel that might have been a mistake. I think that might have been too early. Understand why they did. It did it. Because announcing star fuel start you worried about what's happening with schools? We are very much looking forward to the next elder scrolls right because Room was. This was a breakout success. Like of course like people already knew. But that's the studios specifically from fob three and oblivion the previous elder scrolls games but sky room was a success on another level and with that being the case right like people are very much looking. Forward to elder scrolls six but when star field is your next project. And you're you're announcing that right. You WanNa you kind of. WanNa you WanNa let that happen with the lease like hate skepticism as possible. And the way you do that is by also confirming to people at yes. Oh Scroll six is still coming in the future what that what that does though is this right. It has people tweeting at behind being like. Yo like so When can we expect this knowing Dan? Wells not going to be like it's not imminent by any means old. School six is years and years and years away at this something that I've been talking about a lot with with you. Greg over the last couple months is. I like the idea of different games having different types of schedules. When it comes to to hype marketing I feel like the majority of games would benefit from the fallout four rollout plan which is kind of like announcement press tour and release within right. Yeah like that's great. That's fantastic but I do think that there's something special about games. That are kind of like the more Unicorn death stranding types. Where here's this game that's announced and we know it's coming we know it's going to be a huge game but it's GONNA be years down the line? I think that elder scrolls is that type of game where we know. There's going to be an oldest sex. Guess what there's going to be. An elder scrolls sadden like. That's how this works right. So I just announcing it and confirming that it's happening is to me kind of like a metric prime four situation where. I welcome it like to me. Knowing that a metric prime is coming is valuable information granted. That's a perfect example of how this can go wrong where it wasn't going well they had to restart. It's going to be even later than even plant but as a Nintendo Fan. I know a metro is coming before that it would have just been speculation of. Is it ever come back? What's going on now? It's like okay. At least it's happening and I really would elder scrolls. We know it's happening so it's like yes. People are going to be asking questions. But then I feel like now pecan actually give answers whereas before with this question he would necessarily be able to say After star field. Because it's not officially announced even though

The Walmart Haul Episode

Then you add the sauce than the rest five minutes and then when the timer goes off wheat four minutes. This is basically a nine minute meal. But then but you do have to heat up. Depressurize your pressure cooker.

It's tomato Basil Garlic That's really I love that you don't like about it. It's a little different like sometimes we do the shortcut thing where we Italian seasoning. This doesn't hit you over the head in the same way. Like you really taste the basil or things. He's so good you're probably instead of making ground meat out of it you can do like a meatball or something or Turkey ball. Yeah yeah or like a really fun Burger. I love that.

Republicans lean into Biden probe as he surges in Democratic primary
"Is a target rich environment not just based on the things that he said but you also have to consider the impeachment investigation that just took place of obviously the impeachment of Donald Trump and the accusations that were lodged against the Biden's as a result of that impeachment investigation. Now we're learning and this was definitely expected. We're learning through politico that Senate Homeland Security Committee chairman. Ron Johnson told reporters that he is likely to release an interim report within one to two months on his panels probe of Hunter Biden's ties to Ukrainian Gas Company. Brisman and then he was quoted as saying there are questions that Joe Biden has not adequately answered and if I were a Democrat primary voter I'd WanNa see these questions satisfactorily answered before I cast my final vote and then Representative Jim Hines is You know irritated by this. Because he feels that it's a political move because of course of course it's a political move and you should of known that this was coming. He was quoted as saying after hearing nothing about Barista over the course of the last couple of weeks. The Republicans will revive it in a perfect demonstration of what this means to them which is to be a Cudgel to beat Joe Biden with. Yes exactly exactly.

First Time we waited until my daughter was board. Um So we had no idea But how or what the what the sex with Jennifer is going to be so we went to do this because we wanted to enjoy the privacy. What it was his organically enjoy everything and then kind of just focus on the Serbian pregnant is making sure that my wife. The conditions possible And then we end up having a girl the first time and it's on we actually did a general review at my daughter's Christening So kind of a surprise reveal we kind of had everybody Up for like a group picture while we're taking a group picture on. We have balloons going to pop up and everybody was kind of surprised. People didn't really understand what's going on today seeing the blue balloons and in he's like my father her father arm. You know. Start crying the grandmother's crying. And you know the aunts and everybody you know got really excited so yeah it was was definitely a beautiful definitely a beautiful day. Yeah so cool. I love watching those videos when they come up on Youtube twitter. Whatever all the different creative ways people come up to announce what they're having now you've got one and one. You're going to go to break the tie here. You all done. We want to We went to Definitely go one more We're thinking possibly to while my wife's always know voting the idea of you know when ABC twins so she decided to get it out the way But Yeah we definitely want to You know we went to have at least one morning possibly to I got four myself. We had three boys and then got the girl on the fourth. Try if not. We'd have five by now but we got a grabs places. Miami or a handful. Now I can imagine that you You do everything you do and still be able to you know. Maintain about the work is I mean. That's a that's a you know. It's a big. It's a big thing. They accomplishment really right. If you could please take a minute here just to hit my listeners with a little bit about your background what you do. My name is Carl Heinz I'm currently playing basketball professional basketball player playing overseas in the early I play for a team called CESCO Moscow currently living in Moscow Russia With my family I've been playing professional basketball now for twelve years For those that don't know the Euro League is essentially the second best basketball league in the world. it's essentially the NBA Virgin on the European version of the NBA For people that I guess say familiar names. Luca Danni each Two years ago came from the League. There's a lot of you know big name players Beca Canada they have come came from Europe or vice versa. That are playing over We travel out to play some of the best teams in the best cities Whether or not as in Greece or without Madrid Barcelona And like I said I've been in. I've been living out for the past seven years. Yeah that's very cool. Kyle and I know you've had all these experiences. How about. How old were you when you first became a dad? Had it becoming a father kind of change your perspective on life. I became a dad at the age of twenty nine It it it literally changed everything I always say that being a parent or becoming apparent is the most self listing that you can possibly do Because suddenly you know it's before it was more or less you know about you know you or your wife or you know just individual and now it's it's more about the kids about children You know my day is pretty much surrounded by by their debt. You know whatever they WANNA do. We kind of know plan our days around that which is not having any other way out of the biggest lesson and also giving opportunity kind of realise. What's important life You know having kids having my family quotes especially you know over here You know being Here in Russia and Moscow. We don't you know. Our secondary family are the primary family members with us. It's just us so you know it gives us opportunity to kind of grow with strong bond together. Kind of you know Grow a relationship than I guess you would say. Possibly we were living living back home states. Yeah well said and what was the transition like for you to add to move to Europe and are you like. What does the school system like? I know your kids are a little young yet for it but What type of schooling do they have for the American families that live over in Russia Initially in the beginning just for me individually was It was a little bit difficult transition. just coming from a completely different culture Learning different language You know trying to understand a different way alive and then also just the whole isolation factor of it Initially when I came for the first You know I five or six years. I was alone by myself It's a my wife came over so just you know kind of you know having that I'm a big family so a lot of friends are starting to get used to being alone and kind of you know trying to use that time wisely But when my wife game Literally we're just talking about now. She was over here on literally less than thirty days and we found out she was pregnant. So like it kind of initially had used impact on us And my kids. I mean Moscow. Surprisingly enough is nothing. Like what you see you on CNN. Or what you see the rocky movies or no all the no John wicked all that stuff Let's complete opposite. Moscow is probably one of the most family friendly place was most kid-friendly places that I've ever seen Everywhere you go every restaurant you go to they have a kid space they have a play space. Have entertainers there the balls all the shopping centers? They have like floors dedicated to kids. Play spaces you know. They have a huge indoor. I guess you're saying that States. Almost like chucky cheese like luxury chucky cheese type type type of place bases Here in Moscow in his beautiful so my kids they enjoy it We live in a apartment building where there's a lot of international people a lot of diplomats a that other athletes live here so just downstairs they have a a. I guess a nursery or almost like a kindergarten Nicole. Joe's guard gear my kids. They go half the English and they do. Have they rushing so we're trying to get them exposed to to to learning Both languages and also get their kind of their ear under my exposed to Learning multiple languages like many kids here overseas in Europe and in Russia. Do Yeah. What an important skill to have to and that'll be very valuable to them growing up so I I shouldn't expect Ivan Drago to meet me off the plane right. No I didn't own and he's the opposite of you. If you ever have opportunity to travel to Moscow I would say definitely come. I mean it's definitely one of the most beautiful cities on the entire world. I mean like I said it was probably the most surprising factor when I came here. I was expecting you know all the you know everything that we heard going up but it's been completely opposite. Yeah you know what I'm curious about. Kyle is as far as the holidays. I know certain holidays like Thanksgiving Halloween or like unique to the United States. While you're over there do you kind of keep those traditions in your family. Is there anywhere over there. Where any of that stuff celebrated. So we're we're part of a huge international community here along with the you know the players on my team the players from other teams So we try to keep those traditions alive especially because we want our kids to experience that we don't just because they're living abroad. We don't want them to kind of miss out on opportunities so one of the things we did like we kind of worker. Straighted During Halloween. We have a Halloween party every year. And my wife and my wife is a event planner. here So she plans a big Halloween Party where we had ELSA. We had no decorations. We had all different types of stuff for the kids to kind of get a chance to enjoy and then with a rest of my teammates and some of the other residents here in the apartment building. We kinda work Granada's almost like a trick or treat type of things that kids could knock on the doors and we kinda give them the experience that that Those type of things in the same with Thanksgiving Men with Christmas and stuff like that and we tried to know. Make sure that That they get opportunity to celebrate holidays and have opportunity to you. Know had those experiences because he knows we know as a as foreigners living here Sometimes that can be the most difficult part. Yeah very cool and I know you're you're early here. The kids are young. What was so far. What type of disciplinarian are you as a dad? You spank your timeout guy. How do you handle discipline kind of the I I guess my me and my wife we kind of do the good cop bad copper? Say so it's.

So please tap the link it over there and hit me with a subscribe and obviously the entire basketball community was rocked by the untimely death of Kobe. Bryant this past Monday. They held a huge celebration of life for the late basketball legend and his thirteen year old daughter who died in the helicopter crash. It is definitely something that forces us to take a look at our own mortality and realize that there is nobody. That's exempt from death here. We had a guy like Kobe. Bryant was in great shape had a ton of money in the bank fame fortune but in the end. None of that stuff truly matters or can prevent you from your date with destiny. What does matter is the impact you have on other people especially your children. That is the true legacy that we all have. That will be leaving behind. I believe Dana. White said it best when I had him on the podcast a few months ago.

"hines" Discussed on How Did This Get Played?
"A week's go around will give it a will say one positive thing about this game and then give it a numerical decimal rating. I'll begin. You mentioned the ambulance levels again plan. I watched it on video but man. The lighting effects are very snazzy in an ambulance levels you're driving the road in the fucking lightest shifting over your and that's like an additional environmental hazard as you're trying to perform the surgery yeah. I thought that was dazzling but that look great. This game is you know. There's another game octo dad which is a similar sort of the. The controls are intentionally difficult. We talked a little bit of category. How that game is. The controls are difficult in that game. But not at anywhere on this level like that. There are a little clunky on that by design but this is more in the the OCTA dad category where it's just like it's intentionally very very hard to get with Matt screen up. We've got a dad who's an octopus basically And maybe wants you to retrieve his slippers from the porch or his sandwich from the kitchen. And but that's another game where it's just like very very hard to control and I get it I understand with the scheme is trying to accomplish. Something they WANNA play like. I'm not going to return to this and so for that reason. I think it's creative but I'm GONNA put the I'm GonNa give this a middling five point five. I heather go ahead The thing I liked the most and I would love Matt to pull. This up was the music. We haven't touched them. I I really liked that that that core song that plays that incorporates a beating heart into it or allow an EKG meter. I I love that music. I don't mind it at all. let's see if we can hear a little piece of it. It's so that the beat has dropped. That's pretty that's pretty fucking.
Coronavirus death toll tops 1000 in China, US reports 13th case
"Across the globe the spread of coronavirus shows no signs of slowing down this week Chinese health officials reported that more than forty thousand people have been infected globally the death toll is also on the rise with more than one thousand reported dead so far the majority of those cases are in China where everyday life is at a standstill in an effort to contain the corona virus Chinese authorities have implemented mass quarantines across central China specifically around the city of Wuhan and who bay province where the fires first broke out a government imposed lockdown in the region has restricted transportation and people are being encouraged to remain in their homes plus many businesses and schools are still close across China but despite the quarantine the number of confirmed infections continues to climb daily at the same time a different kind of quarantine is taking place online the Chinese government has been working to suppress discussion of the outbreak since late December when people first started posting about it across the internet for more on this we're joined by two journalists who have recently been quarantined Steven McDonald Beijing based correspondent with the BBC and Sean lead China based correspondent for the Wall Street journal thank you both for coming back on the program hiring good don't do now both of you have personally been under quarantine during this outbreak Sean let's start with you how do you get out of quarantine so I was in quarantine in China into a province for twelve days and essentially the local authorities told us that the quarantine was going to be extended indefinitely and the only way out of out of the city where we were and how to a province was to take at the American evacuation flight out of lawn so that's what we did with our colleague last Friday so now I'm in quarantine again and the US at Travis Air Force base for another fourteen fourteen days north California and how does it how are the conditions compared of from China to where you are right now it's it's very different so in China out we weren't allowed to leave our rooms because at a certain point they were afraid that we were actually infected yeah even our temperatures were on a normal so in the US were allowed to leave our rooms you know we're allowed to go outside on who to a hotel grounds we were on were on air base in a hotel and but they put a temporary barricades around the hotel grounds guarded by US marshals in case we go stir crazy and make a run for it but you know there's a striking difference between the two and how did you feel stir crazy at any point during this last few weeks intranet definitely because we were confined to our rooms and we were there for over a week so even though it was very nice hotel you get you know you kind of get sensory deprivation for not having seen are you know Arab spoken to anyone else for over a week I Stephen you were just released from quarantine in Beijing correct what was your ex how was your experience different so what I'm two losses we went into who by province from who none that's in neighboring province we wanted to go in that way because we knew that these sort of lockdowns was starting we thought if we have a car that's going to break plates it's going to restrict this so we went to Hunan hide a car and driving now on the way Ian pot from going past you know the more more serious roadblocks as you approach to buy we went in sort of bar a Backstreet I think we thought it would be pretty easy to go down this dirt road and sneak into this province but even there there was a police roadblock and they're like oh you can go in but when talk back out again at this point you realize that we're gonna lock down old from by these sixty million people effectively you know you're looking down the entire population of easily and you know we never the less pressed on a drive through various ghost town like places of nobody in on the streets and some small cities there and we ended up at one place where in a hospital and interviewing a patient on the inside bira phone app who told us he was pretty wide exit gone into the hospital he had a temperature but he thought he didn't necessarily have the coronavirus when you eighteen he thought he might catch it anyway because I'd stop him in this ward with other coronavirus patients and so he sort of inevitably thought he is going to end up being infected anyway at this point the police turned up and some local government officials and they didn't want us to be there in their town at reporting they sort of wanted us to move on and was saying look you know I really want to get back to not at some point but now we can't go back there now it's locked down and all at this point they decided well I'd rather breach their own quarantine rules that have a team of pesky journalists hang around there and so we had a police escort lights flashing it everything and the drivers back across out of who by and that's how we got out of that province and ended up returning to Beijing now anybody who's been in bay is advised to being quarantined for two weeks so we just decided to do it anyway like my boss said beat up stateside home for two weeks but it's funny the response to this in all aspects of this emergency it differs from city to city so two of my colleagues went back to Shanghai now in Shanghai to be much more strict on journalists there they had police and medical James knocking on the door making them signed documents you will not leave your home for two weeks at central in Beijing it hasn't been like that I just got a call from the foreign ministry all heard you've been there he's sick he's dying and I'm like I look out the self see light at so just depends where you end up in terms of how strict it is shown in the Wall Street journal your paper had a headline stating that president xi inspected a hospital after quote a conspicuous absence has his absence had a political reverberations yes I mean she's alright he hasn't been seen publicly add any sort of hospital or talking to patients he actually dispatch the premier to will Honda few weeks ago to visit hospitals and speak to you and talk to patients and medical workers so it it's it you know it's it's the fact that he hasn't shown his face and in the front lines of the outbreak has been very conspicuous especially as public anger has surged over the weeks with how the government has been handling it and last week when that young doctor and Honda whistleblower doctor Lee when they are on diets from after being infected with corona virus are there was just a huge outpouring online of people questioning where was the job where was the government how how it works how were they handling or mishandling the outbreak and so how has the government responded to this anger so they have aggressively censored a lot of people's comments online the the sensors have been working overtime and on the other hand they've also been sending more higher level health experts to bay and two will Hines so just yesterday they to a province ousted the two top level provincial health health officials and actually replaced up replace them with a veteran health official from the national health commission so it appears like they're bringing in more experts also the team from the W. H. O. landed and China yesterday to help the government's response so so that those are Sir two aspects of

"And it's not. We're not just a homogeneous group so I. I had early realization that I didn't have to try and be black. I just was black and that hat. Blackness can exist on a very large spectrum but it still impactful. It's still carries the same narrative story but my hey experiences are going to add to that history and that legacy to create something unique but I need to make sure that I carry Gary all of that with me into every room. I go to into every like time. I'm sitting with like a CEO or a C.. Suite person at Google. I need to bring with me. The legacy inherited a blackness and be proud of it and speak with the strength of that heritage. Wow now where do you see yourself in the next five years. What kind of work do you want to be doing? Twenty twenty-five and so me and a couple of my friends actually started project. That's actually building a restaurant group. We have two restaurants one is actually opening like they're actually building. Currently one is opening at the beginning of twenty twenty one. There's another one that's opening in October. And then we have a retail space. That's it's opening and like next month and so that to me is the next project and it kind of stems from crafted which is again like this space space in just to put more Colorado. I actually explained crafted as a living art experience that uses space in food and art to create empathy between disparate groups of people. And for me going back to like what I do. Art As art. The true in goal of art is not to create. Something beautiful is actually to create opportunity for conversation. That conversation can create change but in a conversation list society that silos us through Algorithms conversations between disparate group of people stopped happening and therefore it kind of limits. The amount of change that we can in have like impactful chains so crafted was that opportunity for me to create a space for conversation between district people to create change in and so extending that. We're looking at how we can actually go into some of these different neighborhoods so the chef and the guy who actually has own these different properties on I'm a partner in it but like the main owner. He's from this neighborhood called national city and for him. He grew up there but he always had to leave there to go to restaurants restaurants coffee shops. Like go anywhere which removes that since a pride in your neighborhood and when you have a sense of pride in your neighborhood then people begin to invest best more invest more time and invest more energy into that neighborhood. It's very similar to what we're seeing now in San Diego now that they see all these different things are going on. People are more proud proud to be in San Diego and then they're more likely to invest more likely to stay in so what we're trying to do in this neighborhood called national city where all of our three concepts are actually opening on one st is trying to create a sense of pride in that neighborhood so people feel prideful. They WANNA stay. And they want to reinvest into the community and so it's almost. How do you move into a neighborhood or not even moving? Because he's from there. But how do you reinvest into your community without outed ever having the need to be gentrified so I think we're trying to like for me that's like my my thing is like how do we figure out this fucking gentrification problem uh-huh oh it's almost going back to my passion for city plant or not passionate like what my goal of city planning was is going back to like these things that I had had from the very beginning which is how do you create equitable living spaces and make sure that your fostering opportunities conversation to create empathy and so oh my over the next couple of years. We're going to be launching those three projects and then from there who knows will say is probably going to be more stuff like that like. How do I just just getting deeper involved in helping to build true community reinvestment community? I'm big on community. Well see well just kind of wrap things up here. Where can our audience find out more about you and about your work on line? So of course you can go to basic agency DOT COM to see the agencies work and if you want to learn more about crafted you can actually go on instagram at experience crafted again. That's at experienced experienced crafted. And then if you WanNa follow me it's just at or when hines berry and that's on twitter. This is all on instagram. I mainly use instagram. A partial because I'm managing a lot of different social accounts and I can't be like going back and forth between twitter instagram. I find instagram by my main space to create conversation. So yeah definitely the main thing I would encourage people to follow is probably the experience crafted instagram. Just because that's where I put a lot of my time. I am a lot of my efforts. Outside of basic sounds good. We'll Irwin Hinds. I want to thank you so much for coming on the show. I mean I sort of had an idea. Yeah when I started this conversation kind of where things go but you you blew my mind like finding out about more about your background and seeing how now you've been able to we've all of these disparate experiences and influences into your story and then use that to like guide your work and go back out and give to the community. I mean it is such an inspiring thing to hear one of one of the themes that I'm trying to sort of carry throughout the a year is basically. How are we as black designers helping to build a more equitable future? Whoa and I feel that certainly you are doing it? I mean one through your design and branding work but then also through experience crafted and then through these actual physical spaces aces these restaurants and retail. Space I mean when they say people out here like doing it for the calls. You're out here doing it for the culture. Thank you thank you on the show. Oh I appreciate it. Thank you man. If I could leave with one one last thing. It actually goes to exactly what you're saying I think and I and I when I've had conversation with like other people of Color in general that from a very young age since we grew up in America we were actually forced to learn empathy and a sense of understanding of people outside of ourselves before we even were able to understand ourselves and so I think that is a very very powerful tool set as a creative to have in our tool bill because we can approach every single thing with a broader understanding and bringing that in making ensure. You're bringing that in making sure you're not shying away from it to me would be like the one thing. I hope that people like move move forward with Big.

"Irwin hines creative. Director at basic in San Diego California. Let's start the show all all right. So tell us who you are and what you do. My name is Irwin hines and I am a creative director of one of the two creative directors at basic agency located take. Our headquarters are located in San Diego but we have offices in mountain view as well as Saint. Louis Nice Talk to me about your work at basic like what's an average day like for you there. Oh man so. My role as a creative director is different from some of the other creative directors at agency's role we each kind of focus on our unique the unique specialty. So it's pretty expensive so I focus a lot on client work of course and so that just involves managing teams teams of two to maybe five people in guiding the process throughout the duration of the lifetime of a specific project with one of our clients and doing all the initial strategy and so add basic. We don't necessarily have a traditional strategy department. We expect all of our creatives who actually dive deep deep into strategy so that's understanding the different cultural nuances of the the clients audience and making sure that we are making those like unique connections connections based on what the clients goals are and what the audience actually values at the base level. That's one of my roles at basic but but since I've been there for seven years was one of the original people at the company I've also really taken it upon myself to to help guide the brand as a whole so as an agency. We don't necessarily just view ourselves just as a service company. We also be ourselves as a brand that we're constantly trying to a build one of our products that we deliver is our service right so we're very inspired by brands like Nike. Of course until my other role is really you know what our brand looks like. What are brand feels like what brands sounds like? And then all of our different community initiatives that we do. So are podcasts. brain-dead indeed that's one of the things I kind of head up. Then we also have a community series called crafted that was actually built to help bring together two different creatives within San Diego and help them to rub shoulders and break down the barriers between the different industries or creative verticals and so I do a lot of community stuff as well as the client stuff so again. It's like pretty expansive. That is really expansive. One thing that you just touched on there which I thought was interesting is that you expect the creatives them. Imagine these are like individual contributors. Right you expect them to get into the strategy like often that that strategy part tends to be reserved for maybe you like someone higher up the ranks like maybe a creative director art director. I mean take that approach. I think it came out of necessity so so when I joined there was only five people so all projects. We had to wear a lot of pets so I joined as like a senior designer but as a senior designer. I had to you come in and build brands. And all of that stuff. And we didn't have a strategy department and what we realized is that having that designer that creative from the very beginning beginning thinking about the brand strategy thinking about how the brand's needs need to be met in or what the consumers actual desire is and how the product that we're trying to market trying to build a digital experience for actually meets that consumers need and having the designer on board from the very beginning just creates creates a stronger. More seamless kind of project in process as well as just a stronger experience in the end and so it's just sort of stayed that way because as we realized the value in it from the beginning and now with one of the products of basic kind of being the service that you deliver. Is that something that came as sort of an organic evolution of the agency. Yeah I would say so and I think again. It's just it's mainly because we like to ourselves as a brand and Aubrey brands have the things that they create. Add to their larger sort of wide or larger sort of SS in their their larger perspective. Effective in so we make always considering. What is our larger perspective? What is our Y as a company? And how are we bring that forward through the work we do in proudly police also comes from the fact that we build a lot of brands for our clients and we always tell them to start with the. Why understand why you exist? What your customer wants? And then make sure you're delivering on that constantly and then all of the thing all of the things that you do are just really an ecosystem of consumer touch points that reflect your why in so I think we just internalized that ourselves in. Try and make sure that we're constantly focusing on refining in defining are are Y so that our work at the end of the day can become stronger. How did you first get started at basic seven years ago? I was actually doing freelance us. And so I was freelancing working at home working with anybody networking with other designers. Just McLean's and I was doing that for about six six months. I started to get very very restless because before that had been at a couple of other agency so I was able to toss ideas off of people always able to like feed off the other creative energy and I thought I would really really love that. Freelance lifestyle ragged do anything I wanted and hang out all day and take whatever days I would at all and all of that stuff but after six months ice again started to feel a little bit. Stir crazy identified people to toss ideas off of and basic actually actually reached out to me because I was doing some freelance work through an ex employee of basic and so through that ex employees match. Lock who owns basic actually saw my work in decided to reach out to me and at first so a little bit of a funny story. There's actually a pizza place in San Diego. That's really big big call a basic and it was located across the street from the agency I had previously worked at and we would go there like every single well day so in basic reached out to me via email at first I thought it was a pizza company asking for to become a designer at Pizza Company and at at that point like my freelance work was like activision Sony like I had big clients of freelancer. It's I was like no. Why would I ever want to meet with the people people but because it came through the referral of one of my other freelance clients? I decided to go meet with them and less pleasantly surprised that it was an agency that was doing amazing thing work. Now Talk to me about the team that you're working with because I would imagine you know. After seven years at the agency has went through a lot of changes. You probably went through a lot of changes as a professional final. What's your your team? Make up like now I was Gonna say we do so. I think there's two answers to that question. Why is over the years? We didn't didn't focus on this and this wasn't like a thing. We try to do but because the company is ran by a black man so matlock is black and then a lot of the leadership up is black as well as women. We've actually created a very very diverse team with people from all over the world all different cultures all different perspective and that was just because we truly valued different ideas and different perspectives coming together on one space and felt like that. Collision of of different perspectives and ideas actually fosters better work right so that was the perspective we had every time we would hire someone we like the challenge us do come with something different and if they did. That's when we knew that this was the right person of course tastes level. Great Work raper folio. All all that stuff was like table stakes. Like yes have all of that stuff but you have to challenge us in. So that's why I was like. Please ask that question again. 'CAUSE I had to make sure I like gave this a proper response so again. That's one side and then as far as like the makeup of the team. It's pretty pretty standard we have about. I'm GONNA probably really like mess up the numbers we probably have about like thirty five people in our San Diego Office forty people in forty to fifty people in the mountain view office and then we have like eight people in our office in so the Saint Louis Office is really an extension of the San Diego Office. It supports a lot of the work that we do in San Diego and then the mountain view office is really just focused on Google and then some of our other sort of bay area clients but their main focus is google in so that team. Makeup is is a lot different than the team makeup in San Diego. The team makeup and San Diego is project basis for individual clients. So you'll have teams of three or four. We like to try and keep them smallest smallest. They can be a lot more agile nimble as well as allow all of the designers to really have direct contact with the clients that way. There's like hidden people right. We always WANNA kind of elevate empower all of our creatives like I was saying with strategy to really be the face of the company and to be able Tila someday lead their own projects. That's really our goal right. We Really WanNa make sure that each person grows so we have junior designers. Senior designers are directors creative director. And then we have kind of the higher level leadership team that helps guide and really think through the vision and mission of the entire tire agency all of those departments and all of those groups. We do our best to work seamlessly together. So we strategically have set meeting eating so that whenever the leadership talks about can then be distilled down in share to the rest of the team as well as we have methods for communication in the other way so we can take things that like maybe a new designer comes in and has some frustration points or some tension points with some points in the culture in all of this other stuff that maybe has some great ideas. We have tools and really is just talking but we have tools that allow that new designers like frustrations or your ideas to bubble up to the surface of the leadership team in. That's how a lot of stuff at basic has really done. Its more so done from the younger creatives this or from the ground level as opposed to top down. That's an interesting kind of model. And it's something that I've noticed as I honestly am interviewing wing and and hiring creatives and stuff is that there certainly is more at least. I'm finding that there is more of a need to have designers that have sort of lead projects in that way maybe not necessarily from into end but they were more than just say the team member that did you know visual design. They actually had a project project or part of a project that they really got completely oversee. So it's good that you've got the agency kind of structured in that way to work with clients. Yeah and I think it also it benefits us at the end of the day and of course the designers because then these creatives are well versed if there has to be a shift in our agency. They're not just trained in one skillset. They're actually trained in. We like to say they're trained in brand building which extends past websites extends past. US extends past whenever Robert New medium or media type. There will be but now you understand the foundations of how to build a company that resonates with people and then whatever that company needs. In order order to speak to that audience we can create it and now speaking of clients and projects one of the clients you're working with are the Webby awards which yes and people know from. I don't know if I mentioned this on the show but I'm one of the judges this year..
