"holy grail" Discussed on The Business of Fashion Podcast

"Type of business proposition. Yeah i mean we could talk so interested if the industry just skips skips over organic cotton and goes straight to your solution. But that's probably another conversation before we opened a questions. I do want to ask you about the consumer's behavior. You mentioned that the monkey project. There's not gonna be a it's not going to be labeled or or what have you with recycled materials. I think this is something that you know. It's very difficult if you do a survey and you ask consumers yes. I would like my products to be. I want to buy less and save more. Or what have you in. And i want to wear my clothes forever. I wanna invest. They'll all say that they wanna do that. The the way that people act in the way their intentions are often very different at. But i'm curious to know from you know especially over the last year and a half. How has consumer behavior changed. And how do you see that like talking about the business imperative of of these sorts of changes in in operating model. How has the consumer's behavior changed. I do you think permanently in in. What does that have to do with the work that you're doing the work to make the industry more circular. Right let me speak about more general terms about the the consumer consumers change especially through the pandemic one of the things that we observe is that consumers are now much more engaged. I think you're right. There is still an inconsistency with what consumers say and what they do how they spend other consume. And and i don't really the onus is not so much on the consumer. I don't think we as an industry have done a very good job. At giving point of sale information that is helpful to consumers to make consumption decisions about if buy a product versus product. B cheer is carbon footprints years. What you're you're doing and here's how you can make a difference. We don't have that. We don't have nutrition label if you will of of that of the products that we sell and and so. It's on us through to be better at working on that. Communication consumerist depend dynamic. Has a change relationship. Works with The gums garments are now More functional than their aesthetic Consumers want to make a difference with how they can sue. You can see it by the the the logos that they want on their chests To to to speak about how. That aligns will go out of your system. And i think the other interesting change is that consumers that we have seen. We've talked to wanna be part. Wanna be a lot more active. They want to be part of the solution. They don't want to just be a victim or bystander of what is going around so so The connection between personal health and the health plan is something that is very Very harshly brought Brought to light with the pandemic. You know what happens to you and what happens to your community. It's kind of sort of an extension of the same thing so so we we think this is. This is good. There's this really There is that will so so. How can we support that by by giving the tools and by giving options who truly Consumer as well too. And i'll also add that today just by saying that we we have recycled content. With where kind of green as a brand doesn't doesn't you don't stick out from the crowd. Everybody has something like that you now. That the man of from the consumer expectation for consumers also hire. You have to be known only not one of the bad guys you have to be one of the good guys and so so what are you doing For for for climate change. Where the what are you doing to to be. Carbon negative What are you doing so that you can be much more regenerative or supporting bio-diversity. I think all those are now front and center questions for for for the industry. And how much does discounting culture in in the last year and a half. A lot of very very large apparel retailers have really dialed back on discounting many at the high end but also at the middle have increased their prices in the middle. A lot of them by twenty five percent would have you. They're talking a lot about less promotion in the us. That's a huge huge issue. But in europe. And i think in in asia as well increasingly how does the discounting culture and the the attempt to pull away from that factor into this circularity. Why do businesses need to do that. In order to get away from from discount and that also by the way going back to the original question that also is waste by stuff that you make the nobody wants to buy. And and i think that the challenge in that depend demi also put a spotlight on is that we are in a fast changing dynamic marketplace globally. And so it is getting harder and harder to to predict consumer demand a using the existing models And working in the calendars that we have been working to Consumers are are much more They really want things to be relevant and useful and they really want these products to track with their lifestyle jones so in the independent. It's quite obviously that comfort over over aesthetics and things like that so so there. There's a there's a lot of opportunity work on more intelligent ways to to do analytics and predictive with consumers and so that that's another A great opportunity not mistaken versus. Yeah so we have time for one question. And and quite a few people in the audience including sarah from chicago and some other people have mentioned this policy government framework. How important is it. In terms of regulating this stuff that that different governments that produce a lot of product or consumer or countries that consumer a lot of product create some sort of policy to help move these initiatives through. And make make change. I think it's a combination of of Government leadership of political leadership and then creating the incentives tax and the and the pricing incentives. But and. that's why you you start. But i think then you have. The industry will have to take a lot of initiative than than to drive that into into the way we do business. I think fundamentally one way to look at the issue of waste is that we mispricing The materials that we use we we just not a holding users accountable to the total cost of using and disposing of this material. So we need to do a lot of that but very soon thereafter. I think i think purpose and business Values will have to follow through that that we we have to be Industry for good in business that that is that is supportive of a much more healthy marketers edwin.

"holy grail" Discussed on The Business of Fashion Podcast

"By no means the only brand that we have partnership and research varnish we also work with with other brands but they certainly have been the the most interested in looking at cycle and so for the last five years Our first series of projects with them is around a recycling specifically recycling methodology. And what we want to do is to look at a lot muscle realistically we. We are in applied research center but when we look at something like like a challenge of recycling. It's you chant at it out of context if you saw the signs problem and you don't make the business case for it or you don't create the logistics what i've been you you have sort of like a half half-baked solution that makes you feel good. Works in the lab but doesn't have a real world application so we have been looking at first of all. Just what are the different methods of recycling and is there a business case that we can make one of them so we look at mechanical recycling which you mentioned earlier you know. Hey look you end up paying more money for a something that is not as comfortable and you have to compromise on some of the aesthetics so Then we looked at biological systems which anguish still on that are using fermentation and different enzymes to separate breakdown and transformed materials into I the separating them are transforming them in other useful materials that we can read reviews and for government applications so that work is ongoing and then we we look at a chemical recycling which in recent years of become quite A domain that there's a lot of interest a lot of people see that Chemical recycling as the highest opportunity for for developing some useful efficient Recycling methods and we went down that road for about three years but we kept coming up with the the problem of creating new problems when we solve an old problem. Which is we recreate. A chemical waste stream that we now have to deal with and so We said well. That probably shouldn't be at the spa. That's not a great elegant solution is. There is something that that works better. And so we started taking chemistry out of out of a chemical recycling efforts And so we ended up with this this breakthrough that we announced about eighteen twenty four months ago hydrothermal system which is using heat and pressure to separate Blended material and and from from its useful material which without any deterioration to leave the look the hand seal or the or the characteristic of the material And at the same time New useful raw materials for other types of new Yarns and fibers that we can we can reuse again So that So i can go on a lot of interesting byproducts. That came out of that. But that that's sort of one group of experiments that were very excited about now. That's it's really exciting when you talk about the business case. How much more expensive is it for. A company to use the kind of methods that you're using versus just buying new fabric and if if it is more expensive how do you kind of explain to them the the reason for doing it. That's always been the challenge. Right we are. We are using recycled materials. Out of the goodness of our heart. If you will not because it's more comfortable cheaper and so we wanted to solve that. We don't want people to use recycled material of the goodness of their heart. So hence why we're excited about this so first of all. We are almost at har in terms of the cost or comparable material of virgin to recycle on polyester son. So so the monkey collection is is the first one out of this and We have scaled it from a small pre industrial scale system about one hundred fifty kilos a day. Which is what we're operating right now to a one and a half ton two ton day system and industrial scales them which is As soon as we can get visas in the india in the era of the pandemic that were in We would be installing in manufacturing facility and it will go live and start producing live materials and if we don't label it as a consumer if you pick up the garment you will not not be on the police assignment. Whatever materials that go into be treated hydrothermal system comes out in exactly the same State there's no mechanical is no Deterioration in performance. There's no difference in envy and and we have gotten The cost of that down to incremental difference and and this was And so we started this industrial-scale project and December twenty nineteen and with the pandemic delays. We rhys unaccustomed of turning the sing on and we think this is a tremendous opportunity. But then we have been creating the series of other useful outputs with this That we also very excited We have On the under natural material and cellulosic side material we have developed a new type of viscous material we have been able to use the cellulosic material to develop a pfc free of water repellent treatment or for So so the pfc dwi treatment Is the geek term And ben also. We announced last november a successful first experiment to us. Settle those material which we've functionalize into a new polymer in As a as a way to grow cotton Without irrigation so So at is that is being scaled up and we are looking at irrigation. Free cotton we also adding more functionality. These recycled cellulosic particles. So that It doesn't it has nutrients in it so we don't have to add fertilizer and we're looking at sort of beyond organic type of cotton Which grows faster. yields more per acre and has longer fibers. So so all. We're we're very excited and we think that there's a lot of opportunities And all this is to is to make the business case ordered so that senate we recycle. Because it's it's it's known only do well do good.

"A lot of things in fashion. We think about excess inventory. We think of landfills filled with clothes etc etc but it affects every single part of the process of making garment. Talk a bit about why. It's such a problem in or in issue and how it affects the entire fashion ecosystem right right. So so it's you're right. It's a big topic and the waste that we usually see talk about at least as consumers is really the Proverbial tip of the iceberg right. That's the stuff that's left over if you think about all the by products that created in the process of making your garment the the agricultural byproducts when you grow whatever material growing or the petroleum byproducts of using a synthetic material and then the the water of the dice stuff that you use and then you discharge to color the material and then the cutting waste and and all the Although stuff that's left on floor of the factory and then all the all the supporting packaging material do the plastic bags and the boxes and cartons that are put in for transportation purposes. And then you have the garment itself. Which if you look at sort of the gross weight of the net weight of it is actually a fraction of all of that stuff that is happening and then there is the the useful life of the product right We used to hang onto to close a lot longer. Now things of a much shorter useful life We don't use it as often and we dispose of it lot faster so then we come to the post consumer caution of the materials now have to be dealt with. You're very right about talking about just that word waste. I mean visit visit waste because all this stuff is all useful material and the value a we call it wastes because we started selling things. There's this staff that goes around. And i'm sure it'll be brought up a million times today about how it's wrong. That fashion is the second most polluting industry or something like that that there's no you know there's not a real it. Is there any way to measure how much waste the industry actually is making or or as you said excess. Because i think you're right that we as humans we want to kind of clean everything up and clear it Act like it didn't exist but it doesn't mean that it doesn't have any value. Is there any way to measure the impact of all this excess material that we have a you know the beginning. Middle end of these processes. That's all part of the problem too. There really has i. I haven't seen a scientific more precise way of looking at what exactly we're consuming. And how much resource in terms of material energy water all this that we consuming in the process of making these these products. And so that's why you have these great disagreements or these wildly varying numbers about what exactly is going on because there isn't anything going there isn't any precise measurement and i think one of it one of the reasons for that is that all rate of consumption of apparel garments and materials for has been going up so rapidly in the last decade or two that once upon a time it really was not that big of an issue it just. It just wasn't something that that trivial almost forced the measure. Because we just hang onto stuff but now we we have this. We changed our attitude. Our relationship with our apparel it went from durable tour disposable or consumable and then all this waste began to appear. I'd love to kind of dig deep into the topic of recycled materials. Because that's something that you have been studying working on and and making progress on for many years now and when i think when a lot of consumers think about yes we see recycled cotton occasionally at a big box retailer now and they have lots of marketing around it. It's very exciting or organic cotton if it's organic and recycled even better but you know when i think of something like recycled material. I'm thinking of something that maybe doesn't have a great hand. Feel that is textured and has a lot of images or what have you. Can you talk a bit about the work that you've been doing to to specifically improve recycle material. The kind of machines developed in the kind of work you've done with bigger businesses using these types of materials. And why why. It's so important when we talk about recycled materials. There's every stage of that manufacturing bosses. There are opportunities to pick up materials that we're not using today or the starting today and use them so there is industrial ways and there is a post consumer waste if you will so so. There are lots of materials there So that's one challenge is kinda defining where it's coming from and what it is exactly to. I think when we talk about recycling today we really are trying to deal with a problem that somebody else created some time ago and we were trying to retro fit a solution into a problem that appeared and the way i the reason why i think about it. That way is is first of all fundamentally today. If you look at our fashion apparel supply chain this still venue in shape you know we we make stuff we use and it and we wanted to go away and we take new material and we repeat that process but not built into that process. Is that circularity. All that. The design intent for it to be recycled and reused in the first place. So so we have that. Challenge fundamentally we we. We have this this this one way a direction of oversupply shing and then secondly In terms of how apparel is built today a lot of peril is built without thinking about. How am i going to use this whole night going to dismantle it so that i can make something else out of it. So what happens is that we make it very difficult things to be recycled because it's blended because it is a put together in a way Other mixed materials or assemble. Been way that it is very difficult to to break apart. So those create challenges for us want to go back to this idea of gerbils and consumables once upon a time. We don't have to think about that because we tend to hang onto to our clothes. Were really really long time and so it doesn't lend itself to be to be a big problem why recycling has become more and more of a of an opportunity for us. Because we aren't thinking of our powell as durable we are throwing things away and because we have these ever more and more rapid cycles of fashion And these cycles of fashions are shorter than the useful life of the material that are apparel on a made from and so it creates opportunity for us to think about cycling. So what are what. Are you doing specifically. Can you talk a bit about the work that you've done with the h. M. group is i think that's that's a really unique project and and these machines that have been developed if a business like monkey can use them. Does that mean that every every scaled business could could use them. We work specifically with foundation or the foundation came to us about six years ago and We have the research partnership with them. They are.

About how stepping into the unknown applies in your own life in in your own career. Well i was really influenced. Several years ago. I interviewed the great writer danny shapiro and we were talking after the interview. She came into my office at the school of visual arts and saw that i had stacked on my task. Three books had just come out a barrel confidence. I i really had felt at the time. That confidence is by holy grail. But this is what. I was looking for to find my whole life if i could find the confidence to step into any without fear that that would be like my life likely be made and she and i started talking about that and she said oh i think. Confidence is really overrated. What what like ed explodes. And i pressed her for more information. And she said that she felt the confidence overrated that most people that just head oodles oodles of confidence were jerky thought was more important than confidence was actually courage and that courage to step into that unknown was was far more important to being able to reach any kind of call in so it set me on a pass of a research to really find our What confidence actually meant. What does it mean to have. What have you have you get confidence. You're not good with supermarket in like polls confidence shelves

How Foot Pronation and Supination Changes From Walking to Running

"What do you think gary about. Because i think this'll be important as we go along as well at least police for the rear foot stuff and probably for the collapse as well but the idea of like walking speeds verses running speeds like basically the sort of the ground contact like all the motions have to just be smaller and faster. Don't they like you're not going to be able to take like the foot to its total range if you're doing like a quick jab or a sprint step on the like what are your thoughts on how that changes as we start to speed up or the forces. Change europe's ludi right. My thoughts go towards you. Do need to pronounce b-a-e-n eight three three run. That would be. You need to push on a pedal right in cycling. You need an escape. You need to go swing bowler them to potentially different levels. Unique to the requirement of the of the movement Task in hand. The thing that really interests me is is actually is probably not how much the pro nation is but actually the quality of the nation and the quality of the pro nation will always be most optimal in the foot has arresting position of neutral. So anybody who doesn't have that position of neutral is always going to have probation sleeping should compromise to some extent but i call that resting neutral center. I call it the holy grail. This will striving forth. we're really into into movement optimization and efficiency and so if we take the idea of somebody having a perfectly neutral foot that foot when when running we'll be able to move ever so slightly to the inside which is a pro nation movement in three dimensions and then emphasis lobby to the outside. Which is a super nation movement in three dimensions. And then get the most out of the hip. Now if somebody if that foot is resting fully inside with a not not what. Your question about collapsed for is boop so not collapsed foot but just resting Predated than the may be element of super nation that takes place in not foot so it when it hits the ground at primates a little bit more from its resting pro native position and then super needs a little bit either to the other side of its resting position but actually the neutral so the most super naked person gets is actually a neutral position which means that the hit will only get neutral position so the hip is now gonna spend all its time from mincer and not be able to experience it's folk range of movement.

I really appreciate it. And as i mentioned earlier you started out working as a family systems therapists before creating i f s so as kind of way of introduction for you and maybe for i whole what were you doing and seen just around you in the field at the time that the creation of ifs was kind of response to. Yeah so. I was one of those sort of zealous family therapists. Who but we've found the holy grail and fought those psycho dynamic with psychoanalytic therapists that were monkey around in the inner world. We're wasting their time. 'cause we could change all that by just reorganizing. These external families and i set out to prove that thousand nine hundred eighty one. I think i was a fresh graduate from my doctoral program in wayland family therapy and i decided to what we gathered together about thirty lima kids and their families and tried to prove that the structural strategic family therapy works and found that it didn't actually i could reorganize the family's just the way the book said to these kids would keep binging and purging to my frustration. So i began asking why and they started to teach this to me and it was very foreign to me at the time because they would talk about as you say these different parts of them say some version of when something bad happens this critic attacks inside caused me horrible names and then that brings up a part that makes me feel yang empty and alone worthless and that feeling is so dreadful that the bench comes in to get away from that. The act of the binge brings the critic back. Who's now calling me a pig on top of the other names in that. Of course the brings back that young empty alone worthless part and so they were talking about these parts is if they had a lot of autonomy in almost like little inner beings so i got scared. I thought maybe these kids were sick. To than i thought and then i started listening inside myself in my god. I've got him to and some a minor has extreme is. There's just

"Today my fabulous co host is dr cats. He is a board certified dermatologist and director of the geneva skin and laser center. Right here in manhattan dr katz. Thank you so much for being with us today. Number with you So everybody's gonna wanna listen up because cellulite. It is a huge problem. I feel like having been in this beauty community forever. The way that i look at cellulite is that it's kind of like if your boss was to bring their bratty child to a party. It's something we all know about. It's it's a problem we all have to deal with. But there's nothing you can really do about it so nobody wants to touch it. Is that pretty accurate. That's how cellulite has been regarded. Yeah absolutely i mean we. We used to call cellulite. The holy grail he goes there have been so. Many treatments have been touted to work from lasers to Radio frequency to topical agents caffeine aminov. Flynn medication that you rub on his skin. All different types of things and you know what most of them did nothing you know. It's it's interesting too. Because i think that i want to talk a little bit about what cellulite is. What causes it. But before we get into that. I also want to specify boomer talking sometimes about you know quote unquote treating things. There's a difference between actually trading a problem and making it appear like making the appearance. Less notable and i think sometimes people confuse that they think fit like. Oh if i use this cream. This cream is actually going to treat it when really know it might help make the appearance somewhat less noticeable things like

"Here with alex. Shaw and alex you are currently in sausalito in northern california. That is correct. Well thank you so much and tell me what is your usual job title because things are so unusual now but what box should we put you in right now. Well i don't like to put in boxes so i'll give myself options that Yeah my current role is director of strategy at we work. So i actually helping to reimagine the workplace But i'm also the co founder of cedar clean energy which is renewable energy consulting and advisory company based in shanghai. So we have two hats two boxes to put me in today. Wow that sounds pretty. Bifurcated it kind of a metaphor of your life. Yeah you could say that. I think that's the right word. Bifurcated and corona virus Covid nineteen situation has also kind of showed me that whatever box you're in is not really a box at all it just becomes a you know a starting point. Well said well talking starting points. What is the object that you have which in some way typifies your life in china. Yes oh my object is actually a hammock It is a portable travel hanoch and it is something that i have never left home without. You know it weighs seven grams. Excuse me seven ounces. Seven grams would be incredible. I've slept in train stations. Airports fields parks basically allows me to feel like wherever i am. I have a home. Which is kind of a nice feeling when you're someone who travels as much as i do. It's also incredibly useful for someone who travels on airplanes a lot because flights now don't give you blankets and these long flights where they blasted air-conditioning actually sometimes use it as a blanket. And i'm a big napper. So anytime i can i take my afternoon twenty minute to thirty minute nap and this gives me the confidence to do that. So whether i'm going to office. Or whatever is really. I can go and sneak out and find a little parker area to hang a hammock very nice okay and so in that thing unveils and it becomes a big hammock right exactly. Yeah it tax down. Size of fist and unfurled into a luxurious would feels like a queen size bed. I even seen research that sir that you've actually sleep deeper in a hammock because somehow mimics the feeling of being in a womb and so i love my hammock and yeah and it really does go even on You know again day to day to the office and things like that which is a funny segue. Actually because i could talk about how. There is a culture in china where people are encouraged to take a little nap during the middle of the day right. That is a great point. Yeah i i. Obviously i think one of the most shocking things about going into the work world elder into an office is seeing heads down at one pm in across the whole office and some of the most uncomfortable positions i've ever seen Definitely did not acquire that scale. Which i heard something. Most most of them had learned in school You know to be able to sleep with your head on a desk anywhere but Yeah that was certainly a fascinating part. Well from napping. It's hard to move onto the next topic because you are someone who is extremely active. Tell me about what you were up to in shanghai these few years like. How long have you actually been in china. So i moved to china october. Twenty eleven. the the china didn't really was not really in the plan for me. It was a six week trip that got extremely extremely extended within a few weeks. I had actually met someone who had become my business partner in the future. And his name's johnny brow as he's belgian national. We had exchange ideas and so together. We ended up honestly within a series of weeks. We were like had a business plan and we were ready. We already started doing project. So by fourth or fifth week in china we had secured a Interest from a hotel in union for us to come and do an assessment of their hotel to see what environmental technologies and solutions they could implement to reduce their energy costs. Be more sustainable. And essentially to engage the local community so after that and having that all happened so quickly i was like no brainer as i got cancelled. I'm canceling the return flight. I'm sticking around. We're going to see how this plays out. So that's the first part of this journey. Oh wow well. Let's fast forward them to what you have until recently been doing in china you. You mentioned that you have now done some work with we work. But what i'm more interested in is your own company. So tell me about where that story ended up for you in china yeah. So cedar clergy became the first company in china to offer rooftop solar financing for commercial industrial buildings. So wait a minute. Rooftop financing. Explain what that means. Yeah so rooftop. Solar financing what that means is essentially a mechanism or a way to pay for solar panels on a rooftop of a building so usually a factory or an office building without having to put up any money upfront. So usually that's a power purchase agreement model which means essentially third party investor pays for all the solar panels on the roof and the owner of that building then basically gets a savings or discount on their electric from day one so that owner of the building doesn't pay anything they only get savings and the investor of that project gets to sell the electricity to the building. Yeah interesting so when you first doing this in china had already heard about this model elsewhere and they were open to it or was there a period of education total education on they had heard about like a leasing model where you kind of rent the solar panels but never this model where you don't have to pay anything up front and so did a lot of education and all of our early customers. Frankly were western companies so we actually had to go to hong kong and found a hong kong sash singapore fund that had experienced in other markets. Doing this from there. We took us about eighteen months to really figure out all the nuances with the state grid with with how to do the the special purpose vehicles which are the entities and all of the paperwork attached to it. But once we did it was kind of a big breakthrough for us and for the market and very quickly this whole space took off so we were like we're onto something in china and we have the right secret sauce and we have this Opportunity in the opportunity in the market. I first market so much urgency. That i think it became too much right where you end up starting to make sometimes poor decisions or somebody's putting too much pressure on yourself or other people because it's just like this fear of seeing everyone else who's been in that position and then not capitalizing on it not executing properly or just getting passed by the competition because originally we were first to market so it was actually pretty easy by twenty sixteen. There were already several players popping up big chinese companies as well as a few foreign players. So you have the big panel manufacturers. Who are actually selling their own product in a way and then you have these engineering companies that have tons of resources. The and for them you know they had just infinitely more human power and capital So then it really became our whole differentiator in that was trust credibility and quality than we obviously added services onto that right. We added like verification. We added onsite advisories. We go onto the site do that sesame and so we were we kind of a then built our own niche within the niche. So then there was. No one else is doing this. We call it advisory services for renewable energy because what everyone wanted was the holy grail of being the engine company who got the contract to build it or the financing company. Who put the money in. Because that's a good moneymaker too and so we ended up. You know serving both sides

4 Stocks Ready to Ride the 2020 Infrastructure Boom

"As extreme cold grips. The south and texas tries to cope with massive power failures infrastructure plays or heating up. Checkout names like report. Macaroni neither rental soaring. Today has all this. Wild weather made that infrastructure investments story even more compelling karen wedges. What do you say well certainly sort of brings to light how we need. crept infrastructure upgrades. And then i think there's also some policy as we battle it out with china you know. How can we rely on this. Worldwide trade that the globalization. That's happened over the last ten or twenty years. We need to start bringing stuff. Poem that of course would be very inflationary if everybody needs to manufacture their own stuff but as it relates to infrastructure have been hoping for this for a long time position. Like united rental. This is just absolutely the holy grail for them to think about their business model. They have fixed costs very low variable costs so if you get utilization pricing way up. That's fantastic for them. All that having been said this is as expensive as as i've ever seen uri. So there is optimism already in there. We need an infrastructure bill trade down. But i think we've got one. It would continue to trade higher. Yeah nadine where the opportunities are you and karen hopped up on the midday call talking about infrastructure because if there was ever a time where we're the american Consumer the american voter out there was convinced that infrastructure needed attention needed investment. Now is the time in what is going on in texas melissa. I think you and karen are right. Here is what you have in texas as a supply shock. And you have the governor saying listen we need a winter is our state. Look at my own state. Will we need to protect against fire against floods and so that understand infrastructure is a really big deal so you see biden coming out saying we need a big plan today see the house transportation and infrastructure chair saying we need a one point five. Trillion dollar caught a spend and people are saying. That's not enough. So those two things along with what karen said. Which is china threatening to limit exports for precious metals and technology. All of those things very inflationary but it means that the probability of infrastructure spending just went up. yeah so where are the values jeff karen. How deluded to your uri. What she thinks is overvalued. There are a lot of stocks out there that may already be taking into consideration the possibility of an infrastructure bill we were valued if there is no infrastructure sorry overvalued if there is no infrastructure if there is infrastructure then it's a okay all right. Jeff what do you say. Yeah absolutely no. I agree with karen. And that's really exactly where i was going to go just to echo the sentiments of everyone else you know i think that there was this concern building that if we were to get a really big stimulus bill right. Now it'll be more difficult to pass infrastructure Climate spending things of that nature a little bit later in the year. I think that has changed now. Given what happened in texas. I think there's political capital to push some of that spending through but let's not forget. I mean there are fundamentals. That are supporting this story to. We got manufacturing today for the us for europe both very strong. So i think that's part of the story as well and i look at stocks like cat and volkan. These are names that i've been mentioning over the last couple of months. They're really nice. Steady uptrend just breaking out now to new highs over the last couple of months and i would say the same thing. Maybe for some of the rails. Npr norfolk southern. I think they end up participating in all of this The last thing i'll say is just relative. The small caps been such a big story. This year Definitely overbought. there's. There's no question about that. But i think the valuation gaffe still exists and when you look at the s. l. y. That's how we would prefer to play small caps almost twenty five percent and industrials and materials. So i think that also benefits from this trend. We're talking about see if this is also wrapped up in the in the rotation that you've been advocating which is away from the growth away from technology and into the cyclical plays on the bet that the economy will reopen is reopening soon. So if you look at the i. Wm so i'll pick up where we're jeff left off the wm's since november first. They're up forty seven percent against the snp. that's up twenty one percent outperformance. That's what you're looking for so where you started out saying that. This is about infrastructure shore. But i think it's only about twenty percent about infrastructure. I think the balance eighty percent is about rates. This is about the reflation trade. I know it's all sort of mixed up in the sausage making the ten year. Tenure went from fifty basis points to one point three three percent now. I know that it's a huge move. It's one hundred. Sixty three percent move based on a percentage of the percentage. That's what it's about. Think about this senate. The house are tied up with the covid relief. Reconciliation bill that's going to take us another couple of months. We're not getting infrastructure until june or july.

Trader Joe's Seeds the Conversation About Plants & Plant-Based Products

"Plants and plant based products are certainly in these days. I remember the time when if you put the word vegan on a package it could actually hurt its sales. I swear there are things that we put the word vegan that afterwards. We're like what we do that because we killed it but maybe in the last five years in certainly more intensely in the last couple of years. We've seen this tremendous increase in customer interest for plant based foods. We have a new guest on the podcast today. I m amy. I am a category manager of a few different categories within our store deli fresh beverage and meet meatless an seafood in the frozen set. You head a lot of plant based things that are kind of obviously plant faced right like like the the juice shots for example you also manage what we call these meat analogues. The turkey lists protein patties and the protein patties. They don't say beef louis but there. That's kind of implied right. There has been huge growth in the meatless set. These new iterations of products are really going after the flexible -tarian customer and as people are looking for ways to have a healthier lifestyle improve their overall general health but then a better impact to the environment or incorporating meat. Free days meatless. Mondays in those sorts of things so these products really target customers that want the full meet experience but just a better version of it sweatshirt this as a better version of the full meet experience. Please don't i know it's implied. Did the two product types classic meat or now. New meatless does the product development sort of inform one category over the other. Like we gotta have a meatless bacon because we sell so much regular bacon or or does it work independent of what sells well in the traditional meet category. That's a great question. The new products that were developing our specific target to what does well in the meat or seafood set or chicken. For example i mean great tenders new sausage product that eats differently than our older or i should say first generation sausage links that we have. It wasn't that long ago when when we had to sort of change our expectations and we'd often wind up saying that's pretty good for vegan or vegetarian. Or an analog a stand in and now i feel like the products have changed to the point. Where oftentimes it's like. whoa. I wouldn't have known that was vegan. If you didn't tell me these days you see especially at fast. Food chains and in restaurants Like fried chicken. That actually looks like chicken. Sausage that eats tastes like sausage. It's gone beyond the burger to all those other food products that people normally crave And to get that texture in by it's really a lot more complicated than most people assume otherwise it tastes rubbery or it doesn't have that richness. doesn't cook the same to. That's been keep in mind that some of the proteins remain raw looking as opposed to really cooking and having the char in the grill so that you get that full experience not just the flavor the texture and the presentation of it. You don't have to give up your burger to have something plant based you can still enjoy those comfort foods. You just eat less calories or less fat for that occasion and you're doing something good for yourself and for the environment at the same time. Mimic mimic Animal based products. What's what sort of a holy grail product that you've not seen yet that that you're interested in in having developed bacon is one of them but then also a range of charcuterie. I have yet to really try anything that does well as far as texture and flavor. That's it's kind of more rubber which is a plant based material could could qualify fifteen years ago. I wasn't interested in picking up something that said vegan. Because experience told me it wasn't gonna taste very good. A great things taste good now. Oh they absolutely do. And even beyond just the meatless items the dips and dressings and whatnot with implant based cream cheese. I mean you would never know that you weren't eating a full cream. Cheese product tastes. It has the same mouth. Feel the same flavor profile the dips are at. That's an interesting topic because we've we've approved a number of them recently. Have i'm we're very excited to that. We have to zeki and a caramelized onion as well. That will launch in two thousand and twenty one and within panel. I wanna say everybody agreed that they actually tasted better or the same as a full dairy version. So you'd be hard pressed to differentiate them in a blind tasting. I don't think you could necessarily tell what else in the in the world of plant based stuff is top of mind for you or interesting things. You're looking forward to or. I'm looking to do more work on the seafood side. We don't have options yet within our stores for a plant based seafood product. But they're crabcakes out on the market or scallops ortona replacement so really looking more at the seafood to make sure that we've covered all of the proteins that customers are familiar with and bringing in the best versions of those. We have every single meal covered. We have breakfast options with links and patties we have burgers for lunch or even replacements for something as popular as our orange chicken so we've got a full spectrum so that you don't have to pick and choose which meal you can really incorporate it throughout your day or your week and really find what you're looking for ten years from now it will look completely different again know when you can mimic those flavors and textures. That people really love to have as part of their diet. Then they can feel freer to say okay. I'm going to have less meat in my diet. I'm not going to become a complete vegan vegetarian but maybe this day. I won't eat meat this day. I will absolutely. And i think it's becoming almost cool to say that you're you know you eat plant. Based that it's becoming more acceptable. More understood. people are trying new things so protein patties to sort of beef analog protein patties the texture is a little too soft for me for eating on a bun. Texture is a really big part of something being delicious or not Even though it's not flavor. I think one of our adams that we've really nailed on. Texture is the meatless meatballs. It's one of my family favorite items and we use it as a substitute spaghetti. All the time is just a way to swap something out. That's quick and easy you know and then add some shredded carrots and we've got plenty of plants and it's lower in fat and calories than the meat version that we sell as well and you would never know that you weren't eating meat. I think they're really great tasting meatballs. But you're not super focused on. Is it a perfect replication of the meat version. Because there's so many other flavors happening and the texture. I think to the point you just made the texture of those Meatless meatballs in the freezer. Case is perfect. They are perfectly meaty meatballs without without the meat. They're they're my personal favorite just the way you are

How Sports Trading Cards Went from Hobby to Asset Class

"So dan. i want you to help. Explain exactly how wild this year has been for sports cards with an example and that example that sticks out to me and shocks me every time i consider it. Is this record setting. Mike trout card. Can you tell me a little bit about the card itself. So it's a it's a two thousand nine bowman chrome super factor dan. Hey ducky is a writer and researcher for espn and a card collector. Himself it's got autograph on a autograph on grated. Basically there are three companies professionals Authenticator beckett s g c they grade. How perfect on a scale of one to ten a. Carter's so this might trump card is a nine so it's pretty. It's pretty close to perfect but the autograph is greeted at ten. So it's really close to perfect card can awesome. It's a trap route card also on top of that. It's a one of one so there is only one of these in existence yet. It's so interesting because mike trout in public is like a semi anonymous celebrity like a lot of fans casual fans and sports. Even don't really know him. But this card this one of one card with the perfect autograph. What did actually go for went for nine. hundred million. A new record has been set for the most valuable baseball card in history. Somebody paid three point. Nine million dollars for this mike trout rookie card. I know that when joe maddon was confronted with the information that he had a player who's card solta that much giving like. How much does the mona lisa goes for. Wow i'm into art. That puts him right up there with the mona. lisa's self. For what what is anything by a davinci or wow that is. That's that's pretty. That's pretty phenomenal. And it's actually. It's like yeah. I mean that's disappear question. And what was the previous record holder in terms of the most valuable card that had ever been sold at auction. The previous holy grail. Was you know the the honus wagner keys who six said turn of the century the twentieth century like early nineteen hundreds heart on. It's such a lower behind it. That's not happening with mike trump there. There's no incredible backstory to have his card exists. It's it's modern. It's not easy to obtain but it's not it's not like tobacco card that was pulled from from production really what happened to wagner was once thought is that wagner didn't like that he was being used his likeness is being used to sell tobacco the kids so he objected a pulled the card from production and that was that the other less known school of thought is that wagner he wouldn't be compensated for his likeness so he objected because he wouldn't be paid and the facts the truth which is a i like this story better it would be the like the earliest flexing of brand autonomy. It is remarkable what you say though the difference between his honus wagner card which does like looking at it. I'm looking at it right now on my screen. It's like this historical american artifacts that reminds me of like a daguerreotype from like the civil war or something it looks important and ancient and the trout card. The fact that this object can be worth more than any other thing that came before in modern times and the guy who sold this. Mike trout card dan for this terrifyingly large amount is a man named ken golden. So tell me a little bit more about him. What's the business that guy runs. Golden is ken. Golden golden auctions diammonium. Sins loan out nike sneaker. How much does that they work can in your eyes to me.

Multimodal design with Cheryl Platz

"Just take a step by moment and the question which no you'll have been several times before is is wo- is multi modal multi modality. Yes yes it has so many meanings Which i it was funny. It's it's always been kind of clear. My head and then when i went out and looked as many designers have encountered multiple times in their career was not as clear as i thought at. Its most basic in non-formal multi-modality as this book operates is a system that supports multiple modes of or modalities of interaction. Both output and input usually. It's both both output input. Technically you could have a multi modal system that only has a screen and support touch and voice. But the thing about it is like if a system You could also have the converse where system speaks to you but you have to take to it but especially when you get into things like voice There's a lot of research indicates that our brains interpret speech as another human talking to us and so not speaking back and forth violates a social contract so that's a whole other thing So usually if voices involved. You're probably doing some kind of visual and voice like technically the echo is multi modal because there's an led and and that's That's not always you can't always assume someone's looking at it and so that's one part of what i call the multimodal interaction model. You need to take into account if you're totally hands free it's important what you can and can't assume like i can't assume a hands free system. I'm looking at a device. And i can't assume that it's an arm's reach so that stuff can be bonus like the echo has button on it where you can like make it. Stop the alarm noise. So if it's near me. I could do that but i can't assume that's the only way people are going to interact with the system and same with the led's like it can give you reinforcement. But that can't be the only way we impart information to you. So multi-modality is that that bidirectional and not infinite but assistant with many possibilities. Yes you can be many ways of inputting and the can mean many ways of output saying book. They don't all have to be in use at the same time or in the same period of time. yes. And i'm glad and that's a really good question too because it gets. There's different types of multi modality like different different approaches. So you could do sequential multi multi-modality where you're kind of like okay. I am working with keyboard and mouse now. And i'm going to switch modes and now we're going to talk to the machine and it's just talking and then gonna go back to keyboard and mouse. You could do a simultaneous multi modality which we were trying to experiment with an windows automotive where you say. I want to go to there and at the same time. I'm literally touching point on the screen which which corresponds to their That's a lot more complicated. And it's more costly and you need to know what the cost benefit is for doing that. It's like holy grail. But i understand. It's costly so we need to know why we're doing it and then there's sort of orchestrated modality where you let people you make it really easy for people to do whatever they want. In the moment the sequential model usually isn't super flexible. Like people let you move the way. I see that a lot of the time is like early echo. There were parts of the out of box experience. You had to do from an app. So it was multi modal because they didn't have a good way to do wifi passwords So you just. That was an. They may still do that. I haven't set up an echo in a while. That's that's a sequential thing you had to. You can do voice and then you have to go to the app and then you come back. orchestrated experience would be like they have multiple ways to get you through the box experience. You could do voice or could touch. And it's up to the customer to choose what's right for them in the moment

Hawaii Wants to Lure Visitors---but Keep Out Covid-19

"Hawaii is riding out the covid. Nineteen storm but geographic isolation isn't the blessing it may seem by a. hundred algata when hawaii's corona virus infections were rising in late august. Honolulu mayor kirk caldwell visited doctors in the covid. Nineteen ward of the queen's medical center the state's largest hospital. I could see it in their faces and in their eyes caldwell says the concern and fear. They had that by the following week. If things didn't change they were not going to be able to care for people that they were going to have to put them intense outside. It was a crisis that leaders in the fiftieth state hoped they would never face between march and may when a stay at home order was in place. Hawaii was averaging only a couple of new cases every day but as some restrictions were lifted in june resulting in a patchwork of state and local rules. The numbers soon began inching up by late. July hawaii was metaphorically ablaze with the bulk of cases centered on oahu. Home to two thirds of the state's population. The island lost one hundred and nineteen. New cases underlie thirtieth by mid august. It was averaging over two hundred today four days after his hospital. Visit with more than three hundred and fifty people hospitalized for covid nineteen symptoms on his island issued a second lockdown order with the blessing of hawaii governor. David ige our hospital administrators had informed us. If we didn't do something that they would become overwhelmed says he gay three months later. It seems hawaii's response may have worked as a new deadly wave of coronavirus infections sweeps across the us. Hawaii is one of the only states in the country experiencing relative reprieve. It reported one hundred and thirteen new cases on november twenty third according to data from johns hopkins university slightly more than its weekly average of one hundred six daily new cases. Only vermont reported fewer cases that day hawaii the fortieth most populous state has a low case. Count even when adjusted for population as of november twenty third. It has a weekly average of seven cases per one hundred thousand residents the lowest in the country by comparison. The highest per capita figure is belong to north dakota at one sixty and wyoming at one fifty four infection levels in hawaii have stayed relatively steady since mid-september while nearly every other state has experienced an increase it remains to be seen whether a slight uptick in recent days could be the start of a new upward trend however how has a wii so far avoided another major covid nineteen surge. The clearest reason is apparent on any world map geography. It's so obvious yet. It plays such a big role says thomas lee. An assistant professor of epidemiology at the university of hawaii at manoa and co chair of the hawaii pandemic applied modeling workgroup. He also served as the lead outbreak. Modular and forecaster for the hawaii emergency management agency this spring for hawaii. The pacific ocean has helped serve as the world's biggest moat travelers arriving there by plane. Essentially the only means of reaching the state with cruise lines. Shuttered have since march required to self quarantine for two weeks though since mid-october visitors can avoid isolation if they test negative within seventy two hours of arrival while the rules may have kept visitors from seating new infection clusters. They have also devastated. Hawaii's tourism sector which accounts for nearly a quarter of its economic activity. Some hawaiian leaders. Still don't think they're doing enough to prevent infections part of a broader split among hawaiians over whether and how to welcome visitors back during a pandemic derek kawakami mayor of quite county says new infections on his islands are related to the reopening of travel from the continental us. He's proposed a requirement that travelers get tested a second time after arriving. This virus requires layer upon layer of intervention and mitigating measures. Kawakami says we have to be able to respond quickly and boldly because it can spread like wildfire kawais. Recent uptick is tiny in relative terms on november twentieth. It reported six cases. Its second highest one day count so far but kawakami has good reason to be worried koci home to around. Seventy two thousand people has just nine. Icu beds and fourteen ventilators. Isolated and with limited healthcare capacity and uncontrolled. Outbreak could quickly spell disaster. The holy grail is prevention. So that is what we put our blood sweat and tears into here on kobe. Kawakami says we're almost always on the red line. A similar imperative applies across the entire state of one point. Four million people with nowhere to turn of hawaii's healthcare system is overwhelmed leaders. There have little choice but to be proactive. In preventing covid nineteen outbreaks. We are geographically remote and so our healthcare system is really vulnerable says catherine purple an associate professor of health policy and management at the university of hawaii minoa there really is a strong motivating factor to try to keep those numbers under control. Hawaii's isolation then is a double edged sword. Thousands of miles of ocean are a good tool to stop travelers from seating new corona virus clusters but if infection spin out of control anyway. Assistance could be a long time coming. We have been from the very beginning focused on the science and public health recommendations because we are twenty five hundred miles away from any help. Says the governor. We learned a long time ago. That we have to be self reliant and that we have to act as a community epidemiologists say it's difficult to attribute hawaii's relative covid nineteen success to any one factor isolation included for one thing cold weather which is forcing many americans indoors where the virus can spread. More easily is unheard of in most of hawaii. Honolulu's thanksgiving day forecast is eighty two and sunny. Other government measures may also have played a part unused hotel rooms and a wa who have been repurpose to isolate nineteen patients and restrictions on inter island. Travel have prevented. Local spread mask wearing has helped as well on kauai and a who mask. Mandates were instituted in april while an august survey found that ninety. Six percent of hawaiians are masking up. Unlike for many americans. Wearing masks to prevent illness isn't an entirely foreign concept for hawaiians public health experts. Say that's likely due to the states relative proximity to asia where facial coverings tend to be more prevalent. Many hawaii residents. Who commented for this article also cited the state's heritage and cultural values as a reason for high adherence to public health mandates. We have a culture here that comes from the first people's the native hawaiians called ball says the term juliana means responsibility and it does the people here in hawaii still leaders in hawaii have come under pressure over cove nineteen restrictions caldwell says people sometimes drive down his street to yell outside his house either at him or his wife and daughter. Some people certainly have reason to be upset. Travel restrictions have ravaged the state's tourism dependent economy hawaii's overall unemployment rate was more than fourteen percent in october according to the us department of labor the worst in the country for the second month in a row called bo says he understands people's frustrations but needs to prioritize. Public health. people are impacted. Their businesses are impacted. their life dreams are impacted. He says. I get why they're upset. But i also believe that in order to protect health and safety which is always the most important thing that comes first. And i think it's tied directly to the economy to after months of travel restrictions. Guy says the state's pretrial testing program finally bringing in visitors and helping hawaiians get back to work while keeping cova level stable still. Despite hawaii's current low case counts it remains to be seen if the state's leaders can revive tourism based economy while at the same time staving off a devastating rise in cases which would likely put the tourism business back on ice anyway depend on travel. Uk says but everyday day. I get comments from members in our community that continuing to bring visitors into hawaii during this time is really putting our community at risk. It's something that weighs very heavily on myself. And the mayor's every day as we see the virus counts increasing on the mainland.

"holy grail" Discussed on Everything Everywhere Daily

"Thirty four the item is described in the inventory as quote in an ivory. Chess is the chalice in which christ our lord consecrated his blood which saint lorenzo sent to his homeland unquote. This is interesting. Because it predates any mention of a grail which came from our three and lore. Including the crutch into twelve work moreover. It isn't on a document that was meant for public consumption. It was basically done for accounting purposes. The cathedral of valencia obtained control over when it was given to them in exchange for canceling debts owed to the spanish monarchy in the fifteenth century. In addition to the cop the cathedral also has a piece of them which dates back to the year. Two sixty two which was again part of the original inventory list when it's supposedly came from rome. Both pope john. Paul the second and benedict the sixteenth have said mass with the chalice when they visited valencia. If you want you can check out the grill for yourself. It is on public display at appeared descente collies or the chapel of the chalice in the valencia cathedral. So the question remains. Is this really the holy grail. Did indiana jones waste his time. Could sir galahad. The chased have avoided the grail shape beacon at the castle anthrax and the eight score young blondes and brunettes all between sixteen in thousand nineteen and a half. Who lived there. The truth is there's never any way to verify any relic. There's no tests that can be performed to see if it was actually used at the last supper the catholic church never takes a stance on the validity of any relics including the shroud of turin or pieces true cross. However the case for the chalice in valencia is better than it is for any other. The documentation chain of evidence shows that the valencia company is at least an ancient artifact probably dating back to the roman empire. Furthermore several archaeologists have dated the object to at least the right place and the right time so it just might be that valencia's holy grail is in fact the holy grail of holy grails executive producer of everything everywhere.

"holy grail" Discussed on Everything Everywhere Daily

"Going to start by asking you to throw everything you think you know about the holy grail. This includes anything written by dan. Brown actually just delete. Anything you've ever seen or read by dan brown you'll be better off for it. Also anything which deals with. King arthur or the knights of the round table now with that out of the way. There was no reference to anything called a grail in the first one thousand years of christianity. The bible does reference a cup used at the last supper. But it's only a passing reference. There was a cop because you drink wine out of a cup. But there really wasn't any significance beyond that there were a few mentions in history of a holy chalice. However in the late sixteenth century a pilgrim to jerusalem called antoninus of piacenza claim to have seen a cup made of onyx which was at the church of the holy sepulcher and please previous episode about that building. There is another legend that saint peter took the chalice with him to rome where it was used on special occasions by the christian community there for several centuries more on this story later the use of the word grail however doesn't appear until the middle ages french author crutch into twat mentions it in the twelfth century. Work percival licotta growl. This was an arthurian tale about sir percival and his quest for the grail however it never says what the grail is or even what a grail is there were other mentions of a grail during this period where it was believed to be a stone the platter during the last supper and of course the challenge us during the last supper twelve th century french poet robert de baronne wrote a story of joseph of mafia the cup from the last supper to collect the blood of christ while he was on the cross eventually. The association with the holy chalice stuck in the word grail became associated with chalice. The origins of the word grail are disputed. There are theories that linked to an old french word for cop and others at lincoln to a latin word for a serving tray and still others that lincoln to a greek word for vessel to mix wine and for our purposes from here on out. I'm going to use the holy grail as a synonym for the holy chalice. Those things might have been different at one time and you. Original meaning of grail might not have been chalice but over time that's what became and that's what everyone assumes that is now so at that could the holy grail be.

Viral posts on differing social media sites

"Both of us have been reviewing this really Wonderful well-done article by hoot suite. And who if you don now is a social media aggregation tools so you can use social media to make managing and sending in engaging in social media networks are multiple platforms much. Easier evans. Said that i'm so. They are experts note in social media and they wrote an article in. I won't name the article here for if you wanna go read. It will actually be in the show notes as well. Aim of the article is fourteen is central social media etiquette rules for brands. But today we're going to break down these fourteen rules and some of them we don't hundred percent agree with and we're gonna try to give you some reasons why we don't agree with them and that how it applies to you and to be interviewed matthew matt if wanna shortening the end so mask gonna go on these opie like the so bad. Let's get started here. i. I'm gonna thi this up. I want you to run with it but i think that the mindset when social media came out in you it now but this because you were a book on the to talk with that as well but i think that when social media started grabbing attention financial services there was this idea that it was the holy relic. The new holy grail was the next seminar american for this industry. And i don't think i've seen so many crash and with a strategy. It's been incredible. There's a lot of issues and we're going to help sort through some of those today. But i'll let you bet. Well it can be the holy grail. And when when i wrote the social media handbook for financial advisers one of the biggest things that we wanted to include in the book with with bloomberg finance. Was this idea that there is different etiquette there's different rules across different platforms and why it's so fun. That hoot suite wrote this article and something they don't include in this article. Is that the etiquette on. Twitter is very different than the etiquette on linked in instagram facebook. Pinterest right or tiktok or whatever else you're using out there and you truly need to understand what room you're in. That's the first point that they bring up here which is to read the room. If you're on linked in lincoln is not the place to talk about politics it is not the place to talk about your personal life. It is one place that you go to learn from other business owners. That is the culture that is there now if you want to be a little bit more personal engaging than you can go to facebook. I'm gonna throw this at you. Sure i've seen some incredibly viral post on lincoln. Here's an example. Recently we talked with internally as a team there is a post about a professional woman who took down her professional photo one with her like kind of working from home and this is what i looked like everyday not going the office and she talked about trying to be to be authentic under social media and the the post went viral like unlinked in which is not quite as comet right very true but i believe it had four thousand likes summer. But but here's the thing about that. That post specifically is it still was in the right room in the right context. She was talking about how to portray her personal brand in an environment that likes to know about people's personal brand. Now that's not saying that she shouldn't have put that on twitter instagram facebook especially instagram right. Because that would have been a great instagram post. But you do need to understand that you can have and in some situations but it has to be or in other situations if she would put some something about eating her favorite food at her favorite restaurant that she ports support wholeheartedly. You don't wanna put that on linked. In in fact you'll get blasted on lincoln for doing that but you're not gonna get blasted on facebook or instagram or even twitter even though twitter that's not appropriate either because twitter's consumption. The people who use twitter want hard and fast information about something very very specific. So that's what i think about reading the room. You all have to understand where your ideal clients are right. Some of them around lincoln. Some of them are on facebook. Some of them on twitter. Some of them are on instagram. And hack some of them are on tiktok and you need to understand where your ideal client is. And if you don't know how to figure that out we've actually got a couple of really great free white papers on. The page are on our on our website that talk about how to figure out how to really tease out. Who your ideal klein is. So i think the rule there is that if you have something with a personal spin on it but it relates back to business and being authentic or true or there's Personal lesson that you can come back and bring to business lesson. Those are more than those are acceptable lincoln post. Just not personal personal. That's correct. yeah and so. There are people on lincoln who publish their kids accomplishments. Their own accomplishments outside of work and i would say in most cases those end up being what i would call borderline lincoln. Post sometimes in really depends on the spin or what year prouty break. How big of an accomplishment but some personal accomplishments are relevant to business because somebody overcame something. Big right yes. So i guess. Those those meet the acceptable and sometimes Can become very viral anyhow. So that's the first tip here so bowl on number two here. I'm actually merge

"Here's some context the last time Arkansas won an SEC football game Tua tagovailoa. I never started a game at Bama Patrick Mahomes had never started a game in the NFL Joe burrow was a backup quarterback at Ohio State the Ohio State team coached by Urban Meyer LeBron. James was a gallier Kawhi Leonard was a Spur. It's been a wild wild wild time. It's been a long time congrats all fans. You got yourself one SEC win and unfortunately each had that that that drop-off but as a little SEC run down outside of the game of the week, we're going to get into let's get into Clemson, Oklahoma, obviously, Texas and then the Ott's Georgia game coming up right now. Hi, none of the Clemson Tigers kind of the Clemson update. What did we learn? Cuz some of these games now it wasn't it wasn't a blowout. It wasn't like a sure-handed win, but some of these Clemson game to have to bear with me because you're just going to be about like, what did we learn today? Because Clemson is so much better than everyone. What did we learn? The first thing that we learned is with the Clemson office align. They struggled in pass-pro in this game. They're centered Kate Stewart had a 46% past pro-grade there left guard Matt Brock horse to 46% Also a 46% past prograde Travis at the end is not a pass-blocker. I don't know why they ever put them in the situation. He's not going to be he never will be he's got it you gotta do what LSU did with Clyde edwards-helaire. You gotta get him out of the backfield scat him out of the backfield get him out and empty. He is your number one or two off thread in the past game do not make him block people. It's so stupid. He had a 25% past prograde. I hope they learned something now the one thing and one one of my concerns. One of the year was the right side of the offensive line of Clemson will Putnam the Right Guard and Jordan McFadden. Jordan McFadden has been ridiculous outstanding. The only had one pressure the whole game from the whole entire right side of the line combined. Defense only had one pbu only had one sack they had some blown coverages. This is what you're seeing right now out of Brent venables defense. He usually has that preseason practice warm up games to get his chaos scheme and employ it and kind of sure up the mistakes and fix it up and what you're seeing now is that preseason is ACC came home. So wasn't a great game on the defense. I mean one pbu the entire game and only one sack Brent venables is built around turnovers disrupting the passes disrupting the passer getting to the quarterback stacking them. It's just it wasn't it wasn't a great game. There was a lot to learn from in this what I call a JV game and I think Clemson has some chinks in the armor and maybe even a leaking ship. The defense said 12 missed tackles. Absolutely absurd in this type of game. I mean you you cannot miss tackles in the JV game was most surprising was this song Venables only Blitz 18 out of 53 drop-back situations 34% It's much higher for Brent venables. Usually in somewhat of a close game not even a close game. I mean, they Blitz 53% 9 percent more against wake which was a blowout won't even a close game and that is low for vegetables. So I'm curious why I think it was the maybe some blown coverages..

How long should my YouTube videos be?

"I've studied a lot when it comes to video marketing. Especially when it comes to search engine optimization and optimizing your exposure on Youtube, the lot experts out there. But my personal favorite expert on this topic is Brian Deane from back Linko dot com you can check out his blog back link dot com. There's a ton of resources when it comes to maximizing your exposure on Youtube he's only an expert when it comes to Seo marketing on Google but also on Youtube so I want to share with you some things I learned from him as well as others that have confirmed his strategies and what I like about Brian's approach to youtube marketing is he actually tests Out His theories and see if they work in the real world and his own youtube channel, which is huge for this niche of Seo. It's a very dry kind of topic. It's not a you know anything that's entertaining or funny or makeup tutorials or car reviews which kind of caters to a big market very niche and yet he's got a huge following three hundred and seventy three thousand subscribers on his youtube channel. Pretty impressive. Let's address the direct question of how long should videos on Youtube. In order to give you the right advice. Let me back up a little bit and talk about. What does Youtube. Well Youtube really wants people to stay on the platform as long as possible. Their big metric is view time total view time how long people watch videos on their channel? Don't confuse this with retention time. Let me tell you the difference if a former video on average people watch of to the three minute mark. My retention time is seventy five percent pretty impressive right? Let's say I have a ten minute video and people watch only half five minute mark. You would think that the first video would be more optimized would be more preferred by you would get more exposure because the retention time or percentage is higher at seventy, five percent versus fifty but the total watch time I video is three minutes versus the second video, which is five minutes and really. Cares about is that you actually keeping people on the platform for longer they're watching videos for longer more minutes is most important to them, and this is why the ten minute mark is seen as the holy grail in Youtube because ten minutes allows you to get lots of viewing time even if they just watch half the video and it's also not too long where it's like a two hour video and no one even attempts to click on it because they have to hours. So Brian Deane your video should be at least ten minutes long. You should try to aim for that. You know nine minutes eight and a half. Okay. But ten is really what you should aim for to maximize your viewing time and also obviously have a concise and valuable video. So your channel will get more juice will get more preference from Youtube. Viewers to watch more time of your videos, they will suggest your videos as recommended videos at the end of videos. Or they'll suggests it in the right hand column. And if you get enough mental, you might even be trending on their homepage. Now I don't want you to take my word for it. Take a look at some of the best youtubers out. They're the ones that are trending the ones that maybe you follow somebody maybe that you look up to even if they're not as active as they used to before like Casey Nice to take a look at the length of their videos, you're going to see their around the ten minute, Mark Ten twelve, fifteen minutes very few of these big time youtubers are doing you know three minute form videos, even people that review. Gadgets software cars they make sure that it's you know eight, nine, ten minutes at least now I want to give a couple more piece of advice that I learned from Brian. But my real genuine advice is to subscribe to back link. Oh, you know he's not paying me for this. I'm genuinely saying he's a great source of knowledge because I've learned so much from him if he ever offers the I know he has a course on youtube if you ever offers it. Opens it up for enrollment. Then he closes it really quick by that course it's a very, very good if you're serious about growing your youtube channel because you're GONNA learn a ton to maximize a results is really going to get you faster results in shorter time. But here are a few things I learned along the way from him number one. Understand the key words you're trying to target when you are shooting a video. So when you have video four, your youtube channel, you have a video idea, a title what are the key words are trying to target what kind of things that you're going to be searching for that they're going to you know stumble upon her find your video with understand your Seki words and they could be eight to ten keywords you're looking for, and you need to make sure you use these words throughout the video now, only in the description as. Much as possible in the title, even in your, you know close captioning or subtitles, but also say these keywords in the video actually speak them into the camera why? Because you actually can pick up what is being said, and it's actually picking up your audio and using it in their search engine algorithm to find people those videos that match the keywords typing in. So obviously, you just want to say these words randomly you want to put them in context in the video, but be mindful that you need to mention these key a few times. Brine recommends at least three times. So they're picked up by the algorithm maximizing your opportunity to rank for those keywords. Thing teaches of course you need to make sure your video engaging if your values are not good, they're not gonNA do well period you want to make sure that they're engaging you have really crisp cuts you have different angles even if you just change the framing even if you just have one video camera a Webcam or your phone in the post production in the edit you know zoom into your face then back up to a wide shot and switch these kind of shots every time you're changing The point or moving onto different part of video us bureau US things on your screen or images or video from stock images.

Mark Meadows Speaks with Reporters

"Today outside the White House chief of staff Mark Meadows spoke to reporters for a little over 10 minutes on issues, including the replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U. S. Supreme Court. The president said he needs nine Justice Supreme Court election challenge because he asked me of potential nominees how they will vote. No, he hasn't. Actually I've been in those interviews and I could tell you it would be inappropriate for us Ask those kinds of questions. I think his comments were more just an indication that we need a a full panel on the Supreme Court. You don't want to ever provide a a situation where there could be Tie a 44 ty not to suggest that this should be a 44 tie. I think it should be more of a unanimous decision on some of the facts that I have seen. But obviously I'm not a justice. They would have to hear That case would be highly inappropriate. We wouldn't want to ask a question that would perhaps for some potential nominee to recuse themselves. Should they have to hear this waste but with him out there, saying he needs to have this justice because there might be a challenge. That create bags of a conflict of interest for whoever you well, I know no more than any other judge that has been nominated by Donald Trump or Barack Obama or anybody else. I mean to suggest that just because they were nominated by somebody that they would have an inherent bias, I think we've seen from the court rulings already by the Supreme Court. They're an independent body, and they don't necessarily vote the way that you might think they should. I can tell you that That particular issue is eyes, Probably the least of potential nominees. Worries that it makes you effective profits were kind of expecting a second question. The president will have confidence. I can't speak to the second question in terms of the confidence in director Ray, I can tell you that I was Very, very disappointed to see some of the text messages and emails that came out yesterday. And some of the discovery that was put for from my previous job is a member of Congress. I know that I've asked for exactly those kinds of documents and never got them on that was under the previous director and also under this director on so it is time for direct array to quit in my mind playing footsie with transparency and Deliver those documents. The second part of your question was more that I think. Well, I think if past is prologue, I mean, we've got all kinds of indications that the Democrats are. We're going to use the next 30 days to try Tio shame. Whatever nominee we put four for their faith for their record for who they are, and Troubling. I mean, we've got it. We see even today that way don't have AH continuing resolution passed because Chuck Schumer is playing games with procedural aspect based on a potential nominee. We took down a election security hearing today because Chuck Schumer's playing games that's minor. That's that's child's play compared to what we will see over the next 30 days, But we're prepared for the fight. What we will see is, I think Be thorough Vetting but hopefully done in expeditious way way. I didn't say it was Judge Merrick Isa. Good leading question. You can say that the president's confidence in director, I haven't talked to him about it. Well, I can tell you that we have a number of people that continue to serve at the pleasure of the president that he has different degrees of confidence in on DSo Tio directly speak to that question. Without actually talking to him would be inappropriate about healthcare. Big announcement guys today the president wanted to executive orders now the U. S government policy that preexisting conditions should be protected. Forced the affordable care act right now is that five lost? What are Americans make policy of already existing protection? Well, Peter, you as you know, there's a court case going through as it relates to the affordable care act and what the president Wanted to make sure I was clear not once not twice. But now a third time in signing that executive order is to make sure that preexisting conditions are covered that insurance companies can price people out of their coverage just because of the illness that they have or could have come down with, And it was just a commitment and say that if the court strike that down any future legislation under a Trump administration would guarantee that preexisting conditions are covered. And so From his perspective, It's just trying to make sure that the message is clear. He's been very clear in the Oval Office, You know, Sometimes the campaign rhetoric in the ads that get place do not match the private conversations in the Oval. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows outside the White House earlier today. Scepticism of some because obviously the president president for four years, But they say that it's that they should be protected his only a policy. It's not along. We've never seen a plan. Peter, this is not your first rodeo. And you know how Congress has the inordinate and unbelievable ability to obstruct, especially when you have a divided Congress. I don't know of a single Democrat that would be willing to take down on Obama care piece of legislation haven't served in the car. It's almost like they're Holy grail. Now they'll admit there's all kinds of flaws and all kinds of problems with it that they won't fix, but they won't repeal it. And so it's all about making sure that the message to the American people gets covered. One of the interesting things that no one seems to be picking up on too much. Well, is the $200 copay that's actually is going it is coming from the savings from the executive order on most favored nation big farmer would push back on that. Pushback on that, But we're going to be able to save tens of billions of dollars were actually going to use a demo. Ah, demo for to be Medicaid CMS demo project that will actually allow us to use about $7 billion to pay for those. But those will be offset with savings from from Pharma as we enacted most favorite nation, money way have we have a 10 year? Window on that for those savings, and we're actually working on those final rules. Those proposed rules now to put forth But just like the Obama administration used the same program in the previous administration were going to use it now to make sure that seniors get the benefit of those savings today and that they don't have to wait for those you already prepping initial Supreme Court nominee for confirmation questions and Wilder wise guy sort of Urfa. Person around Capitol Hill with numbers on DSO in terms of prepping any particular nominee that we have. No, we have not started prepping those. We won't until the nomination is full on I see me mean by wise guy could be wise guy or a gal, a cz, a Sherpa, and so as we wait guys in a plural and generic sense I would have seen on so as we look at that. I don't know that we'll be using Sherpa as much we've been working with leader McConnell, in a very direct way of had daily conversations would leader McConnell a number of senators because of covert and the inability of senators to actually engage more on a office by office faces? We're looking at modifying that if there is a need for a Sherpa, we've actually have asked the leader for some recommendations. There were certainly open to that. But I think next week what you'll see Is Patsy polonium myself, making sure that we make the nominee available to a wide variety of senators. Political question. You aware that Amy Kony's merit worked on foot vs board and you know what was her role? Apparently, she was in Florida working for Stuart Levey. According to her question. Yeah, I I'm certainly aware of every nominees record, whether it's Amy Comey, Barrett or anybody else. I can't say I don't think that this is a hanging Chad problem. This's more a mail in ballot. Unsolicited mail in ballot with delays in collection of those ballot issue. Hopefully, we're not gonna have a hanging Chad problem when my last question was president, felling three of your quote, By the way, I think you owe guide okay. Yeah, that sounds like a good stand. Wise wise guys. Okay, campaign. Apparently, the RNC are telling Republican voters essentially that they need To vote absentee necessary. Isn't that sort of out of line with the president's message going to be male in front? And I mean, I think absentee ballots if they've got a normal process, perhaps auntie ballots like we had in North Carolina. I don't know that that process is one that is new or different. I can't speak to every state. All I can speak to is North Carolina, but but I can't. Say you that solicited ballads with absentee requests or certainly something that has been the norm eyes the unsolicited ballots mailing to ever registered voter that he has a bigger problem with and that most Americans should have a problem with that theory is she's been radio programming from Friday. Well, I don't know That's how I'm basing the acceptance. Of the election here is a valid point here is what we want to make. Sure of is that laws are not changed by a few judges making it like in North Carolina consent decree. Don't change the laws that are on the books just so that you can extend the election time. Most states, North Carolina and others have a very long time for them to be able to cast their ballots either in person or by mail leading up to November. 3rd s O to suggest that we should have November 3rd. It's a week plus two weeks like has been mentioned in some states is not. There is not something that I think is necessary. The other is is when you have secretaries of states in a partisan manner, potentially certifying election results. We want to make sure that they do this on on away that's credible and they can with stand the scrutiny of of the public eye on allow a partisan process to get in. I don't know if you're following what's happened. In North Carolina. But it's very troubling where you have a a Democrat group, filing suit against a Democrat, Board of elections and then doing a consent decree. That's not what the American judicial system is all about. It's in my opinion gaming the system. Hopefully, that judge will not go ahead with that consent decree but is very problematic and it disenfranchises voters whether they're Republican, unaffiliated or Democrat. We want to make sure every vote counts. But We want to make sure that on ly one vote count ceremony, I I'm I'm assuming that we were invited. I don't know about the best. You know the invite list. Obviously, yesterday we wanted to make sure before he left town. He paid respects and so way actually adjusted his schedule so that he could do that. Yesterday I travelled with him and, as you know, way made that a priority. Thanks, guys. White House Chief of staff Mark Meadows outside the White House this morning,

You know and I was I was reading about this because I know it's it's known as conic comedy film and we said it before you watched it. I would be surprised if five percent of the top fifty films comedy, you know I'd be surprised if it was three percents There's not a lot of companies in the top two fifty and is that because people you know it's a WHO knows right? It could be that dramas resonate more with audiences. It also could be this critic effect right? Like comedies are typically not critically acclaimed films for whatever reason I guess 'cause I don't know the the humor is subjective I mean it's It's you tell a joke. Doing some stand up and sounded really funny in your head and maybe it sounded really funny in the writer's room. But then people see it and they're like, that's just stupid I. Don't Yeah Nope for sure because I. You know if you ask someone. If you have the same favorite dyke to comics is someone like you know you probably get along right I. Think. So yeah if you're like Yo, I love you know for me like Bo, Burnham, like if someone likes Bo Burnham. I think I'll get along with them they. So Bill Burr I love Bo Burnham. Get along You would hope it's objective. Objective the whole point is like this such, a large range of of. Comedy and comics that someone could. You. Too Amy Schumer In, thinks she's hilarious. You Know Nikki Glaser I don't mind her I like I. Think she's Funnier like a Improv but are lycra stand up it's it's not my style I think she's hilarious on podcasts but in terms of of Standup, it's just not my style. I know people who love her But. Then you have to kind of goes a little bit past stand up where these are I mean this is a new medium. where? You know. It's sketch comedy in this absurd sketches. So it's kind of a different. Strategy to make people laugh and even though you may. have similar. Favorite stand up comedians maybe you might disagree with that person on some other different comedic. Mediums commuting. We're getting to something right now. What are we getting reason? We got it. Yeah we got it. We're hitting there. So you know I'm I'm I've been reading about a little bit of Monty Python and wide. So highly acclaimed and you know I I've seen posted around that it. It's so. It has so many different styles of comedy, right? It's got slapstick. It's got sexual innuendos. It's got absurdity..

You know anytime there was a what's in opportunity? With school did you go to Public schools. where? There'd be a person that was doing something like they would. It would be a knight's name or it would be a quote from the movie or I think one time we had to figure out like how fast the the swallow went or something, and as a kid, you have no clue I annoyed it what I was doing, but all these like lines have been. In my head for for years because of that, it was all coming back to me and I was like, yeah, I think there's a lot of lot of lines in this film that are so.

How are you doing, Rachel? Good. I'd be better if I was going to be at your lovely establishment on Friday, enjoying? I believe it's a Reagan salad. That's my favorite. I'm going to tell you. So what's it been? You've been under what? You missed the one year in Europe in Detroit, right? With 78 years. You've been with us exactly. He's blowing us off. Well, well, well, well, given the circumstances of the current you're lucky to get mowed down there. It was, like, you know, we wanted to be there, but they were like, No, we can't. We've got one sacrificial lamb. That is Mo Agger and the rest of you have to stay here in the bunker. How about how about our guy moment? He's like the lone soldier going down, produce his own show. I know he's doing it all himself. He has won everything himself like a Joe. We worry about the sound levels, but I got it. I got that. I could help you out on that one. Nothing else s So So what You guys have going on this Friday? Mo will be down there hanging out. They're gonna come down to the 3 60 show it new with Ah, secured by ESPN Radio. And he's going to come back to 36. We have a D J is going to perform in between deejay Toad and D. J. Joey. We're trying to liven it up a little bit while the can We open up in 11 o'clock. It is first come first serve, and as always, there is no cover charge. And Jim what is going on in the banks in terms of you know, you and the people that have restaurants and businesses down in the bank's on opening day. Have you guys gotten any special instructions from the city on how you need Thio basically behave and do things because of Covad. You know, we've been since May 15th. Operating all this in conjunction with the state mandates and with the governor's mandates of our staff is in mass. We are socially distances tables. You know, outside. We've got plenty of room inside. We've got plenty of room. And you know the mandate is and wass that once you get inside, you have your chair. You sit in your chair that get away from congregate areas, Which means that As you've seen on opening day with a little crowded there. People were standing all over the place. You can't do that this year. Um, once we have a finite amount of chairs once we hit that finite amount, chairs, we gonna wait. You know, I mean it. We're operating just like we do for lunch right now. Are we done any other time? That's cool, because I was kind of worried that they would, you know, be basically policing guys looking over your shoulder to make sure that you were doing what they wanted you to dio, but it's kind of awesome that they trust you guys to do what you've been doing, and that's that's working. Yeah, you know there. There's been so much last couple days about coded spreading when what's going on? And you know the city and the county have not seen any spread that they can attribute to any restaurants. So you know, I think we all know what's at stake, right? It's our livelihood Certain our employees know it. And we are doing everything we can, You know, particularly Holy grail. We started taking temperatures probably 45 weeks ago. Now of everybody who comes in not just, you know, we've been taking all the employees, temperatures and building a daily wellness check. Since May, But now we're doing that for Our patrons. We do it for delivery drivers. Just make sure that everybody's comfort everybody that comes into the facility is safe. And it keeps our employees safe. Jim has to be great for you at this point, because I'm sure there was a time. Probably in May when you were thinking to yourself. I don't know if we're gonna have opening day at all. And here we are. We're finally here. You know, Between all of the negotiations with the MLB and the players and all of the state mandates. We have finally made it to this day. That has to be awesome for you guys because Is your big party. This your big thing that you do every year? You know, we're all kind of still holding our breath. Oh, right. It's okay. It's really here were 48 hours out. Yeah. And then you had governor do wine. Not not giving away what he was going to talk about today. And I think we were all kind of holding our breath that maybe that because other states are seeing closures, a second wave of closures of bars and restaurants and, you know, not giving up what he was going to talk about today. You could make that assumption that wine might be Moving in the same direction. Yeah, you know, in the health and human services secretary came in same thinking they're seeing. There's just so many rumors floating around here you're hearing about, you know, Per fuse and Shutting down bars and trying to delineate the too and you know the reality is everybody does their job here, and this thing gets under control, but at least we stabilize and start bringing the cases back down. Hopefully, we'll see an NFL season. Hopefully will CNN football season but You know, to be 48 hours out Red's opening day from where we were in March to me is a big win. Yeah, and we can't go the ball part. But, you know, Ah, Garage doors will be open. You know, the fireworks are still going off for home runs. They're still on offer winds and you know, as well as anybody can smell the sulfur When you're sitting in our place absolutely way, won't be able to go into the ballpark. But we think we're pretty daggone close to being the way we are talking to Jim Mooring of Holy Grail opening day. Finally, here finally hear the vague I guess This is one of the big holidays for Cincinnati. And you guys have always been a part of it. This is your history. This is And usually you know, we're down there too. So for you personally, Tio See, this happen also has to be pretty bittersweet, because even though it might not be the same It's still happening. Yeah, And you know what we way opened the Holy Grail Because we're diehard red stands. Then we're diehard Bangles fans and You know, I think, everybody well, my my social circle Anyway, we're all dying for some programming. Well, dying for, you know, to get some relief. From the everyday we're just stared and doing the same things and grind and through and you know we had no distractions for the last four months. None in the distraction of sports is just huge. And you know what? We got A hell of a team this year to we really dio you take the distraction. You take the level of the game. And you realize where we were and where we're at now and just you know what was quite honestly thankful to be open. Thankful that we're get 58 people that work with us. That's awesome. You know, they took the chance and came back and You know, business system down a little bit. Obviously, you know the second wave, I think hit some restaurants hard. And what we're trying to prove that we are safe and that we are open, and I think I think I see some nice crowd this weekend in order. Were you able to bring back everybody from before shutdown to bring him back Teo Holy Grail. Pretty much everybody. There's a couple folks that way. Had a couple employees. One particular had his mother's going through chemotherapy so he couldn't come back. Couple folks now. Ah couple folks got pregnant. Um, covert babies like correct is a thing of it is killing babies and covert divorces. Yes. One or the other extremes. Of course. That seems very 2022 have extremes at this point. Yeah, There's no doubt about that. So you know, we've been lucky. We've got the best staff in the city and Do you know their family to us? And you know it is going to be a welcome shot in the arm to have the red is playing again and hopefully hopefully, if we can do something to absolutely I'm going so You know, like Friday. You know, it's gonna be weird. It's going to be different. We know it. You know, there's no parade. There is no street party there. You know a lot of the traditional things that are not there with that being said. We're all spoiled here locally, and we don't understand what it means for Reds fans in a region you know we had Just today or yesterday on the phone call from a couple in Huntington,.

Then given this information this appears to be the holy grail of investing higher returns, lower standard deviations, and most importantly, lower drawdowns, where do I sign up? So now again, given that we potentially had this holy grail. We go back to our steps our goal which is our first step is to achieve stock returns with lower drawdowns second. We have to come up with reasonable process logic. So we're going to our. Here's to invest in stocks. But apply trend following rules, based on human psychology this appears to be logical as almost everything in life, ebbs flows. You're gonna fall Trent and apparently it worked over the past ten years. Third. Can you trust the process? So, at the outset some people probably even dismissed that question. Can you trust the process after all this seems like a slam dunk? So after implementing the strategy on January first of twenty ten how has a trend following portfolio done. We examine this below the returns that show here from January first of two thousand ten through the end of twenty seventeen. If we went to the end of March of twenty nineteen it even worse. The SNP with trend was up around nine percent. Whereas the SNP five hundred was up fourteen percent you lost around five percent by using trend and your drought was about the same internationally. Trend falling portfolio was up around two point eight five percent. Whereas buying hold was up six point two five percent. So one gave up around three and a half percent. Annualized internationally, so five percent of the US rain half percent internationally, so the results above highlight over the past eight years at trend. Follow portfolio has underperformed,.
