40 Burst results for "Hundred People"
A highlight from Neil Mammen
"Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original. Something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Metaxas. Folks, welcome to the program. I am so excited right now. I could burst almost literally, but not literally. I have on a friend, Neil Mammon, who is involved in something that I've been talking about for some time. It's really exciting. So before I tell you all about it, why don't I just say welcome, Neil Mammon. Thank you, Eric. Good to be here again. Okay. We're going to be talking about something. I can't believe it exists. I feel like I dreamt it up, but nobody would ever execute such a thing. But you and Roger Elswick have made this a reality. This is a big deal. This is an answer to a real problem we have. I say everywhere I go that folks, if you're going to a church that is not dealing with the issues in our culture, that is unwilling to face this and that is whistling in the wind, that is fiddling while Rome burns, you need to find another church. I say this over and over and I beg people, God will judge you for sitting in a church that is shrinking from its duty before God to speak to these issues. And then the question is, people say, well, where would I go to a church? So, Neil, tell us. Well, the problem is really, really obvious and I get that all the time. I go around speaking, people go, oh, do you know a good church in this area or that area? Well, it turns out that more than that, it turns out 1 .7 million people look for a new church every month. 1 .7 people look for a new church. A billion. A billion. And now if you assume that's a family unit here or there, that's about 5 million people looking for a new church every month. 5 million. Most of them, turns out, it's Sunday morning. So I wanted to do some research on it, so I went on, you know, the source of all information is Google's Bard Artificial Intelligence. And I said, tell me what sort of churches these people are looking for. And Bard comes back with, oh, they're looking for progressive, more loving, more accepting churches. That's what Google's Bard said. And I said, really? Is that true? I don't believe that. So I said, give me the information. Give me the evidence of that. By the way, before I start, I should mention this. I have a statistic. I want a statistic. I want your readers. I don't want you to guess because you'll know the answer. Here's a quote. Only 17 percent of Americans go to church. The interest in religion is minimal. And in New York, single women are more likely to be sexually active than attend a church. Worse, 33 percent of all pregnancies in New York are out of wedlock. Now, I ask people, what decade do they think that is? And they always say, oh, oh, that's 1990s, 2000s, whatever, right? You know, actually, this is 1990s because today is probably a lot worse. But we'll come back to that. But so so I asked Bard, I said, what what since you think that these are people looking for progressive churches, can you give me a list of the growth rate of progressive churches? And Bard said, OK, so it gives me this rate and it's you know, it shows me this list of people of churches and like the UMC. They've dropped like 50 percent, the Presbyterian, the USA, you know, the liberal Presbyterian Church, they've dropped by 38 percent. And so I go down that list and I ask I ask I say, well, give me the list of all the progressive churches and how they've grown in the last 20 years. So from 2000 to 2020. So in 2000, the progressive total people going to progressive total was about 18 .7 million. And today it's about 16 .8 million. So they've dropped by 10 percent total. There's no surprise people going to these ridiculous, you know, quote unquote progressive churches that have veered away from biblical doctrine. I'm surprised anybody goes to those. Exactly. I mean, the the Presbyterians, they've dropped. The Presbyterians were the ones that dropped by 50 percent. The UMC has dropped by 15 percent. Yeah, because why go to a church like that when you could go to to like a local, you know, Neil, where are you going? What's the punch line? Because I'm getting confused. Are you? I know there's my assumption would be that most people who actually care about church are trying to find a conservative church, a church that teaches biblical doctrine, but also that speaks to the issues that people like because many people can go to these ridiculous mega church or whatever, where they they're avoiding the hot button issues that everybody has to deal with when they leave that church, their kids are dealing with it, everybody's dealing with it. What's going on in America? So the idea is, how do you find those churches? So I know that's where you're heading with this. So I turned the bar and I said, OK, now give me the conservative churches. I'm on board just looking for liberal churches, progressives. I said, give me the conservative churches. And it gives me things like, oh, the Orthodox Presbyterians, they have grown by 50 percent in the last 20 years. The Orthodox Russians have gone by 29 percent. Independent Baptists have grown by 33 percent. The conservative. And so I did I said, what about the Calvary church? The Calvary churches have grown by one hundred and fifty percent. And then the you know, even the Southern Baptists who's stuck in the news all the time, they've grown by seven and a half percent. OK, but conservative total have grown from sixty seven million people in 2000 going to these conservative churches to ninety two million going to these conservatives. So they've grown by almost thirty seven percent in the last 20 years. Now, what's interesting about this and this is the kicker here. This is all pre covid data. It didn't have any data for twenty one, twenty two, twenty three. This is twenty twenty. And as you know, and you're going to be preaching in my church in Santa and in in San Jose and sometime in your future Calvary Chapel, San Jose, right. They grew from three hundred people to three thousand people over covid. Why? Because a couple of things is very important here. Pastor Mike said, I'm not going to let the state determine what I'm doing. I'm going to be legislated, be active with voter guides. We had candidates coming in who's fighting the state. Remember, we say we're the finest church in all of America because we have four million dollars in Calvary Chapel, San Jose, because we wouldn't shut down for covid. So churches like these have been exploding all over the nation. So just these numbers are three years old and I can't seem to get the twenty twenty three numbers. So, no, the people who are looking for church. And so I went back to Bartlett said, well, this is the growth rate. Our people are really looking for more progressive rates. And, you know, I always say, well, I'm really sorry. I apologize. Yes, you're right. They must be looking for conservative Bible believing fundamentalist churches is what it comes back to. So it actually says, oh, yeah, you're right. You were correcting me on it. Right. So the issue here is then why? How do we find these if five million people are looking for churches every single month, how are they going to find these conservative churches? OK, this is this is a very long way of getting to the punch line, because this is such an exciting punch line, Neil, that I am just at the bit to get to this. We started. I know what I mean. I just want to say.

A highlight from AJ Got HACKED! (Here's What Happened)
"Hey what's up, I'm AJ Rice Crypto and I want to be honest with you, this video, pretty embarrassing to make. So I kind of got stuck and then I got hacked and I want to explain what happened to me so it doesn't happen to you. To be fair it wasn't for all of my crypto but it was a good amount of money and I do have a ledger in crypto you know on different places and stuff like that. I've already pretty much have been made whole from what happened luckily like I have friends that help me out and one of them has a pretty loud mouth, I'm sure you get the joke but thanks to Loud for helping me out and I'm trading it back. But basically what happened is I wanted to use a trading bot that a couple of my friends were talking about that was on the Binance Smart Chain. The minimum buy -in was $5 ,000 so I put $5 ,000 and change from Ethereum to Binance using a cross -chain bridge called Seabridge. The transaction Seabridge worked just fine and my money was on Binance. Naturally the same day I moved that money to Binance the trading bot was migrating to like another thing and it was down for a couple of days so I kind of had to sit on the money and just wait for it to you know come back up. At the end of the day I had never actually used the trading bot because I was going to trade in my old car for a better car and I still did that but I wanted to use some of that money that I sent there for my vehicle. So when I went to move my funds back from Binance to Ethereum the same bridge that I used before Seabridge wouldn't let me do that for whatever reason. So I had to find a different bridge to go back to Ethereum and in the past I remember I used this bridge called AnySwap and it worked just fine and then I learned that AnySwap got rebranded to Multichain and I clicked on their Twitter I should have read the tweets underneath I did not you know they had almost 300 ,000 followers a hundred people I follow also follow that page and I just oh they just rebranded everything will be fine. One of the biggest mistakes here is that I didn't even send a test transaction. You know to be honest with you guys I'll keep it real with you like I've been in crypto for a number of years at this point I've personally have written over 300 videos for this company I'm in the game I know what's up I'm well researched I know what I'm talking about and because of that you know I kind of have an ego that gets a little bit too big sometimes and I really think this whole thing was a lesson in disguise because you know it definitely humbled me a lot because if you don't do that due diligence and you don't do your homework this is the kind of things that happen to you and you know it's just a fair reminder that crypto is a treacherous treacherous place and it can be a scary place for your money if you're not careful and if you don't do that homework and don't do your due diligence so lesson learned in that behalf. I did not send a test transaction and I also didn't know that the multi -chain bridge was just kind of not really working anymore but I just assumed because any swap rebranded that it would be fine but this isn't the worst part I sent that $5 ,000 back to ethereum and you know three hours went by and I looked at my metamask and I was like dude it's still not there like what's what's going on here you know what I mean so I went back to the twitter and I clicked on the telegram link that's in their twitter page on multi -chain's twitter page you know and like I said you know 300 ,000 followers 100 people I follow follow this page like I kind of thought that it was legit so I get into the telegram and I say what happened and someone messages me and they say hey like can I call you and I was like yeah sure so I got on the phone and there was this woman on the phone and she was like hey like what happened and I was like well I you know send $5 ,000 on the crosschain bridge and it didn't hit my ethereum yet and she was like can you prove it so I sent her the transaction on bsc scan and she was like oh okay so we just got to get you to claim that money and you'll be able to get it back and I was like oh yeah totally perfect and but then the conversation started to get a little weird she wanted me to download this other app which was just the crypto .com defi app so that's fine because I know that's a real app from crypto .com and then once I imported my metamask she said that she wanted me to change the language to vietnamese and at that point I realized that I was just dealing with a scam like this is already a scam like this this is bad and I panicked while I was on the phone with her and out of just habit I just bought a sappy seal and I moved my sappy seal from my ethereum wallet to a different ethereum wallet and then I just started kind of backpedaling out of the conversation like hey there's no reason I should change my language to vietnamese it was all because the claim button that does not exist on multichain wouldn't so she wanted me to use the browser on the crypto .com defi wallet because apparently it would show up on that browser so I followed her that far but when she wanted me to change my language to vietnamese I knew that something was up and I was just like why won't this claim button show up on this website and then you know we talked for a couple more minutes and then out of nowhere she hung up the phone and I refreshed my metamask and all of the crypto left in my metamask gone disappeared just like that I never gave her my seed phrase I never gave him my passport I never shared my screen I never did anything like that and I still for the life of me don't know how they drainbotted my metamask and you know I talked to Justin Williams about this and he obviously has you know somewhere down the line he's been hacked before too and he told me that you know whatsapp has like an encryption where telegram doesn't have the same encryption that whatsapp has and because of that just because she was on the phone with me that connection is all they needed to get into my metamask and that does not make sense to me I don't know how that works in my mind they need my seed phrase or my passport or something they didn't have any of those things and they still drained the rest of my metamask you know it was a notable amount of money Justin has told me in the past that drainbots have hit him and they took the stablecoins but have not but didn't take the ethereum in my case they took both the stablecoins and the ethereum and the bnb and everything else in my metamask but they did not take my nfts which is very strange but now I'm scared to put you know money back into that metamask to use for gas to get my nfts out so I'm not really sure what to do there but the lesson here at the end of the day is one never go into anything thinking you know everything don't like have that ego like oh like I'm AJ writes crypto I know everything that that mentality is stupid and immature of me to think that way like crypto is still a dangerous place I don't know how to code like I'm not a computer programmer there's a lot of things about crypto I don't know you know this reminded me of that like AJ like yeah you're a smart guy you've written a lot of videos you know what you're talking about but there is a degree that I don't know and because of that I still have to do that due diligence I still have to do my homework I still have to read everything carefully if I would have done 10 more minutes on multi -chain or sent a test transaction like none of this would have happened but you know I was in a big hurry I was just trying to get the money back I wasn't thinking I was not thinking and this is normally how this stuff happens and on also don't click any links that you don't know about apparently just getting on that telegram phone call with that woman without her knowing my password without her knowing my seed phrase they can wipe your metamask just like that from a phone call connection from telegram that is news to me it might be news to you and if you don't believe me well it happened and they stole my money I just don't want to see anyone else out there make the same mistake I did uh you know luckily like I said I have friends I've I've you know I've been made whole and I'm trading it back and I will I will pay them back but you know it is nice that like I'm not completely drowning and like I said it wasn't all of my crypto but it was a lot of money and it does really really sting but hey it's a bear market we still have plenty of time to accumulate leading up and really I think this is the challenge that I needed uh you know I had a pretty good head start and I was like kind of doing the moon math in my head I'm like well where I would be if this goes into this by 25 or the next bull run or whatever and and all that's out the window and that was a lot of work and that was a lot of effort and it's embarrassing it's embarrassing but at the same time this is a teaching moment and there's a silver lining for for you guys that to not make the same mistakes I did and as much as it pains me to come on camera and talk about how I was hacked for you know as much money as I was hacked for it's very embarrassing but the the point is is that I don't want it to happen to you so with that being said I mean I love you guys and be careful out there and at least I get to report that loss to the police and it'll help with taxes I guess so you know there's a win there and with all that said my name is AJ writes crypto and I hope you have yourself a great day.

A highlight from Believe Anything
"Well everybody, welcome to the Monday show. As usual, I hope you have a good weekend. A rare thing happened in the elevator coming up to my broadcast floor. Oh it's Tuesday. Yes, you see that the mind works logically but not accurately in this case anyway. The logic was it's my first day back at work so therefore the brain says it's a Monday. That's that's what happened. I still hope you had a good weekend. I hope you have a good day. But to this woman's credit, a middle -aged woman, she looked at me and she said perfect. A tall purple shirt. How's that? Had I been given eternity to anticipate or to predict what this woman would have come out with, eternity would not be long enough. Hi everybody. I am going to open your eyes with one fascinating insight that I picked up reading over the course of this weekend. This will help you understand a great deal. A woman aged 107 just died. She was a lifelong communist and she married a lifelong communist and they lived in China and were one of the few westerners allowed access to the higher echelons of the Chinese Communist Party. Let's be clear. Two have been in China during the Cultural Revolution and the Great Leap Forward when approximately 60 million Chinese were starved to death and otherwise murdered. In the Cultural Revolution where people were denounced and humiliated en masse and sent away to rural areas if they were an intellectual at a time when intellectuals fought for liberty and still remain a communist means you were a real sick morally sick person. So I want you to hear how sick this woman was, morally sick, named Isabel Crook. This is from the New York Times obituary. The Crooks became true believers in Chinese communism. Their faith remained unshaken. Even after David, the husband, David Crook, was charged with espionage and imprisoned between 1967 and 1973 at the height of the Cultural Revolution. Mrs. Crook insisted he was innocent but her defense backfired and she was kept under house arrest for several years. Now please understand their communist beliefs were so deep. Their support for evil was so religious in its implementation, in its genesis, in its etiology that even when her husband was but six is enough. And imprisoned in China in the late 1960s was a very very bad thing. They remained true believers. I have often said the truth is not a left -wing value. More than often I say it every day. It isn't. It's a liberal value and it's a conservative value. It's not a left -wing value. That's not its biggest problem. Its biggest problem is that it's related but it's not the same. They believe what they say. They believe that kids under 10 can decide that they are the opposite sex. They believe it. It's very hard for those of us who live in both moral and factual reality to appreciate that. But many of them, many of them don't. Many of them are just destroyers because they have nothing better to do with their bored secular affluent lives. But for many this is as communism which is indistinguishable morally from leftism. And again it's distinguishable from liberalism but not from leftism. That is a religious belief. The people who gave secrets to the atom bomb to Joseph Stalin, the second greatest mass murderer in history, Mao won Stalin too in terms of numbers. Then followed by Hitler who would have caught up but didn't have the time that Stalin and Mao had. They believe these are true believers. The people who believe America's systemically racist, they may not have in the beginning but they have convinced themselves of it that a woman can become a man. They believe this. Not all but many. The woman's husband was arrested for no reason and put away for six years in China and she continued to support the Chinese Communist Party. It's like the communists, the early Bolsheviks who were thrown into prison under Stalin's regime and then said to the people torturing them, if comrade Stalin only knew what you were doing to me. They thought comrade Stalin would object. Comrade Stalin was the reason these people were being tortured. If there is not much you can do, clearly logic is irrelevant, reason is irrelevant, morality is irrelevant. When you have engaged what Eric Hoffer, the great philosopher of the mid -20th century, who was a longshoreman by the way, I'm not sure he went to college, called the true believer. When you encounter the true believer, you have to be very afraid. If a woman is okay with her husband being sent away for six years to some awful Chinese prison, then you know you have encountered true believers. As many of you know, every year, this will be I think the 17th year, I conduct the most high holy day services known as the high holy day services in Judaism for three to four hundred people. If you're interested in attending, people fly in from all over to do so. I explain everything and it's a beautiful, beautiful service of music as well. Go to PragerHighHolidays .net for information.

Fresh update on "hundred people" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News
"PenFed, great rates for everyone. Here's Steve Rappaport. This is a Bloomberg Money Minute. From the Octagon to the courtroom. About twelve hundred people who used to compete in the ultimate fighting championship are suing the league to get out of their contracts. Bloomberg law antitrust reporter Katie Arciri. These fighters claim that they have been locked up in exclusive contracts that never let them see free agency. Arciri says the fighters also argue UFC pays them far less than they would have earned in a competitive market for mixed arts. martial UFC made over a billion dollars last year and the year before. They are getting richer and richer but they're saying that the compensation of the fighters shouldn't be related to the growth of the revenues. Though a little extra could money go a long way for fighters who fight to make ends meet. A lot of times these fighters are living off credit card debt, they're living with family members, they're taking on jobs like a bartender on the side. Arciri reports an attorney for UFC says the league is confident the court will find the plaintiff's claims legally and factually meritless. the From Bloomberg Newsroom, I'm Steve Rappaport on WTOP. It is 242, a DC artist whose work focuses on justice and liberation has surveillance video of the man stealing her artwork. But instead of turning to police, she's asking fellow art lovers to help. Ana Kelsey Velasco Sanchez celebrated her first ever solo exhibition at the Festival Center last month. It was an honor until her artwork was stolen. The two paintings that this person stole were on a wall behind the person at the front desks. He took the off paintings the wall, slipped it into a bag, went into a room, came back out, took the other one, put that in the bag, said thank you, and walked right out. Front desk workers never saw him, but cameras did. Velasco Sanchez refuses to call police. I'm not scared to call them. I'm not willing to call them, because I'm an abolitionist. She's turning to social media and her community. They have just about as much chance as a cop does to recover my paintings, if I'm being honest. Gigi Barnett, OP News.

A 17 -year -old Philadelphia resident has been arrested as part of a federal terrorism investigation. Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner says the teen, who was not identified, was alleged to have been in contact with groups designated by the State Department as global terrorists. As a matter of policy, the office does not identify juveniles while they are in juvenile court. If there should come a time when this individual is certified to adult court and my office will be seeking certification for the matter to be handled in adult court, then at that time the name will be a matter of public record. DA Krasner says charges against the suspect include weapons of mass destruction, criminal conspiracy and arson.

Rodgers and Cook, very familiar with each other from their times in the NFC North and the Jets get Cook after he made visits to their AFC East levels Miami and New England. Jets coach Rob Salah asked about the significance of that. You know we're focused on us and how can we make ourselves better and how does this all fit and if you check the box of making yourself better it fits the right way and we're doing what's best for this organization then you make the right decision but to make decisions to spite another team you're just asking for.

Fresh update on "hundred people" discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original. Something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Metaxas. Folks, welcome to the program. I am so excited right now. I could burst almost literally, but not literally. I have on a friend, Neil Mammon, who is involved in something that I've been talking about for some time. It's really exciting. So before I tell you all about it, why don't I just say welcome, Neil Mammon. Thank you, Eric. Good to be here again. Okay. We're going to be talking about something. I can't believe it exists. I feel like I dreamt it up, but nobody would ever execute such a thing. But you and Roger Elswick have made this a reality. This is a big deal. This is an answer to a real problem we have. I say everywhere I go that folks, if you're going to a church that is not dealing with the issues in our culture, that is unwilling to face this and that is whistling in the wind, that is fiddling while Rome burns, you need to find another church. I say this over and over and I beg people, God will judge you for sitting in a church that is shrinking from its duty before God to speak to these issues. And then the question is, people say, well, where would I go to a church? So, Neil, tell us. Well, the problem is really, really obvious and I get that all the time. I go around speaking, people go, oh, do you know a good church in this area or that area? Well, it turns out that more than that, it turns out 1.7 million people look for a new church every month. 1.7 people look for a new church. A billion. A billion. And now if you assume that's a family unit here or there, that's about 5 million people looking for a new church every month. 5 million. Most of them, turns out, it's Sunday morning. So I wanted to do some research on it, so I went on, you know, the source of all information is Google's Bard Artificial Intelligence. And I said, tell me what sort of churches these people are looking for. And Bard comes back with, oh, they're looking for progressive, more loving, more accepting churches. That's what Google's Bard said. And I said, really? Is that true? I don't believe that. So I said, give me the information. Give me the evidence of that. By the way, before I start, I should mention this. I have a statistic. I want a statistic. I want your readers. I don't want you to guess because you'll know the answer. Here's a quote. Only 17 percent of Americans go to church. The interest in religion is minimal. And in New York, single women are more likely to be sexually active than attend a church. Worse, 33 percent of all pregnancies in New York are out of wedlock. Now, I ask people, what decade do they think that is? And they always say, oh, oh, that's 1990s, 2000s, whatever, right? You know, actually, this is 1990s because today is probably a lot worse. But we'll come back to that. But so so I asked Bard, I said, what what since you think that these are people looking for progressive churches, can you give me a list of the growth rate of progressive churches? And Bard said, OK, so it gives me this rate and it's you know, it shows me this list of people of churches and like the UMC. They've dropped like 50 percent, the Presbyterian, the USA, you know, the liberal Presbyterian Church, they've dropped by 38 percent. And so I go down that list and I ask I ask I say, well, give me the list of all the progressive churches and how they've grown in the last 20 years. So from 2000 to 2020. So in 2000, the progressive total people going to progressive total was about 18.7 million. And today it's about 16.8 million. So they've dropped by 10 percent total. There's no surprise people going to these ridiculous, you know, quote unquote progressive churches that have veered away from biblical doctrine. I'm surprised anybody goes to those. Exactly. I mean, the the Presbyterians, they've dropped. The Presbyterians were the ones that dropped by 50 percent. The UMC has dropped by 15 percent. Yeah, because why go to a church like that when you could go to to like a local, you know, Neil, where are you going? What's the punch line? Because I'm getting confused. Are you? I know there's my assumption would be that most people who actually care about church are trying to find a conservative church, a church that teaches biblical doctrine, but also that speaks to the issues that people like because many people can go to these ridiculous mega church or whatever, where they they're avoiding the hot button issues that everybody has to deal with when they leave that church, their kids are dealing with it, everybody's dealing with it. What's going on in America? So the idea is, how do you find those churches? So I know that's where you're heading with this. So I turned the bar and I said, OK, now give me the conservative churches. I'm on board just looking for liberal churches, progressives. I said, give me the conservative churches. And it gives me things like, oh, the Orthodox Presbyterians, they have grown by 50 percent in the last 20 years. The Orthodox Russians have gone by 29 percent. Independent Baptists have grown by 33 percent. The conservative. And so I did I said, what about the Calvary church? The Calvary churches have grown by one hundred and fifty percent. And then the you know, even the Southern Baptists who's stuck in the news all the time, they've grown by seven and a half percent. OK, but conservative total have grown from sixty seven million people in 2000 going to these conservative churches to ninety two million going to these conservatives. So they've grown by almost thirty seven percent in the last 20 years. Now, what's interesting about this and this is the kicker here. This is all pre covid data. It didn't have any data for twenty one, twenty two, twenty three. This is twenty twenty. And as you know, and you're going to be preaching in my church in Santa and in in San Jose and sometime in your future Calvary Chapel, San Jose, right. They grew from three hundred people to three thousand people over covid. Why? Because a couple of things is very important here. Pastor Mike said, I'm not going to let the state determine what I'm doing. I'm going to be legislated, be active with voter guides. We had candidates coming in who's fighting the state. Remember, we say we're the finest church in all of America because we have four million dollars in Calvary Chapel, San Jose, because we wouldn't shut down for covid. So churches like these have been exploding all over the nation. So just these numbers are three years old and I can't seem to get the twenty twenty three numbers. So, no, the people who are looking for church. And so I went back to Bartlett said, well, this is the growth rate. Our people are really looking for more progressive rates. And, you know, I always say, well, I'm really sorry. I apologize. Yes, you're right. They must be looking for conservative Bible believing fundamentalist churches is what it comes back to. So it actually says, oh, yeah, you're right. You were correcting me on it. Right. So the issue here is then why? How do we find these if five million people are looking for churches every single month, how are they going to find these conservative churches? OK, this is this is a very long way of getting to the punch line, because this is such an exciting punch line, Neil, that I am just at the bit to get to this. We started. I know what I mean. I just want to say.
A highlight from Tucker Carlsons Interview With Former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund Reveals Lots Of Key Details About Jan. 6th
"So, I want to first of all give you some background on this poll, this, some would say shock poll that was just released moments ago. It's a top Republican pollster. It's a Republican leaning pollster called Signal, C -Y -G -N -A -L. They hold an A rating with the poll aggregator 538. In other words, they're a pretty well respected polling company. And results have been released showing that Ron DeSantis has slipped into third place nationally in the Republican field behind businessman Vivek Ramaswamy. Trump, of course, is the clear leader of the Republican field. He holds steady as the top pick. He's at 53%. Ramaswamy is at 11%. DeSantis is only at 10%. Last night here in San Diego, we had a terrific event. Great, the great, the answer in San Diego, our home here in this beautiful city. A couple hundred people came out to see Brandon Tatum and I and we had a great time. Andrea Kay was the moderator. And by a show of hands, we said, who are you supporting in 2024? Everybody in the room raised their hand for Donald Trump. When Ron DeSantis' name came up, only two people in the whole room meekly raised their hand. Our latest straw poll that we've partnered with Town Hall shows about 86 % of our respondents to the poll are supporting Donald Trump, about 12%, or no, I guess it's 9 % on the last number I saw, Ron DeSantis. We've joined forces with our friends over at townhall .com and are presenting the 2024 Republican presidential straw poll. And I hope you'll take part because it gives us sort of an idea of where you are, where the American people are. Go to mikestrawpoll .com, vote for your favorite Republican presidential candidate, let your voice be heard. That's what we did last night here in San Diego. It was a good old fashioned town hall. They broke all the rules here at The Answer San Diego and I loved it because normally stations don't like to put mikes into the audience and have people, you know, read speeches and opine, but Steve Brodsky said, we're going to do a good old fashioned town hall and Andrea Kay started asking, having people ask questions from the audience about five minutes into the event. I thought, well, here we go. And there were some kind of unusual moments. Some people had different, you know, messages than others, but that's fine. It was a great night and people are passionate about voter integrity. People are angry about what Jack Smith is doing to this country and people are all in for Donald Trump. I wish we spent more time last night and I want to spend a few minutes with you right here right now on this Friday, August the 11th in the Relief Factor mobile studios. Our day, a final broadcast from San Diego before we head home later today. My question to you, what is happening to the Ron DeSantis campaign? Now think about my question. Don't call me as a Trump supporter.

A highlight from KEEP ON FIGHTING - Andrew Tate Motivational Speech
"Do you ever look around you and just look at the world and feel like, kind of like we're in the matrix, like there's something missing. Do you think that's like the government making those decisions? Way above them. Like that's what I mean, like who do you think is they? There are people who've been in charge of the world for quite a long time. And people at the bottom just don't seem to get it, they don't seem to wake up. And they don't seem to wake up because the people in charge try very hard to keep them asleep. You're constantly distracted by everything. You are done. You are now full slave mode, and that's all they want. It's always been the same playbook. It's absolutely incredible that people are not awake enough to see what's fucking happening. I struggle to sleep at night. Like literally what's happening is fucking crazy. A lot of people out here, it still amazes me, they believe the government care about them. What the government wants is slaves. This is what, slavery's not gone anywhere, right? So the old school idea of slavery, let's talk about slavery, a government would get slaves, make them work for free and build things. That's slavery. So they've stopped doing that now. So what do they do now? They get people, make them build things for money, but the government print all the money. So if a government can create as much as they want of something from thin air and you'll give up your life for this thing they can create from thin air as much as they want, you are still their slave. That's it. You used to be a slave and you'd work all day and at the end you got food and a house. Now you work all day, you get money and you spend all your money on food and a house. Slavery is still here my friends, nothing's changed, right? Nothing's changed. And what they want is they want slaves, they want slaves who are going to comply and pay their taxes and whatever kind of indoctrination or societal programming they can instill inside of people to keep them doing that, they're going to do. Anything it takes to stop people waking up and realizing, whoa, the government's fucking me here. Let's forget Corona. Let's forget locking us all in our houses and taking our business away. I'm paying how much tax? What? They're helping me. How much? If you actually wake up and look around you, you realize you're being destroyed in real time. The idea that government cares about them is a lie. The government is never going to tell you anything that's going to wake you up. The government's going to teach you things that are going to make you subservient and compliant. They're going to tell you all this crap about identifying as a panda and all this other shit is not an accident. When they can convince the average person on the street to pretend that some other person is a panda because they said so. You are fully in the slave mindset. Every single one of us to some degrees, an empty vessel, we're all programmed. There's no such thing as escaping the slave mind. You must just to some degree understand who is programming you and understand if you really want those characteristics. Most people are repeating opinions and I'm saying, where did you get that opinion from? They can't remember where they got it from. They don't know who even told them. They don't know why they so fervently believe in it. They're just told they're programmed. You need to genuinely analyze your brain, defrag every single opinion you strongly have and identify where it came from and if that person has your best interests at heart. What they're trying to do, especially with young men, is program them because we're all empty vessels. What you have to do as an adult, as a parent, is to program your child stronger than all of society. It's not an easy job because all of society from the YouTube videos to the TV shows to the school, every single thing is trying to program them in one direction. You have to combat that and that's not an easy job. If you just sit there and get lazy about it, you will fucking lose. When Rome was losing, all they did was have endless circuses to keep you distracted from the losing war. The world we live in today, they try very hard to prevent you from creating your reality. You're constantly distracted by everything and it's hard to focus on nearly anything. And they do that on purpose because for you to go stand out in the rain and protest, that takes focus. They want you distracted. They want arguments in the household. They want blacks to hate the whites, Republicans hate Democrats, they want us to argue with each other, for all of us to hate our neighbor and all to be so distracted and selfish and self -absorbed that we can't think beyond ourselves. That's what they're trying to do to us and it's absolutely an utterly work. There's a very, there's very few of these people and look what they've fucking done to the entire world. It's absolutely insane. You're existing inside of a system which is deliberately rigged to make the rich richer and for the poor to stay poor. And you can sit there and get upset about it. You can sit there and cry about it and say the system needs to change, which is what some people do. But I think that's not my thing. I know that's a waste of time, right? That's futile. The best thing to do is to understand the rules of the game and find a way to win. So yes, the game is rigged. Yes, the rich are always going to get richer. Yes, the poor are always going to struggle. And that's the way the game is set up. So you still need to find the best move on the chessboard. There's no point sitting there saying, I want to play a different game because that's never going to happen. I was having a conversation with someone the other day. They were talking about Joe Biden and his relief checks. He gave out $1 ,400 to all the people in America because of Corona. And he said, don't you think he's good that he's helping the poor? I said, you think that helps the poor? Let's let's talk about this. You give a hundred people a $1 ,400 check, right? Everyone understands you can't just leave it in the bank forever because of inflation. The value goes down because what happens when they print trillions of dollars from the sky? The dollar becomes less valuable. And now we're living in a world right now where inflation is getting out of control, especially in America, right? In the last year, inflation is up like 6, 7%. So no poor person is going to take that money and just leave it in the bank. They're going to either spend it or invest it. Let's say there's a hundred poor people and a hundred poor people spend their money. What do they spend it with? Businesses. Who owns businesses? Rich people. Amazon, their stock price went up 30%. Why? Because people are getting stimulus checks. They're spending it on Amazon. It all went to the rich guy. And then they go, oh yeah, but what about if they invest it? Invest it where? Invest it in the stock market. That increases the stock price. Who owns the company? Rich people. You've made them richer. What if you and all your poor friends, 20 poor friends, would be more than 20? 200 poor friends put all your money in together and bought one house between you. That still takes one house off the market and raises the property value of that area. Who already owns those expensive houses? Rich people. You can't stop making the rich richer. You cannot stop it. People inside the matrix don't understand what's happening and they're going to sit there and go, but the government cares about me. You gave me $1 ,400. The government doesn't give a shit about you. The government is looking after its friends. The government gave all the slaves a little bit of pocket money so they can send it all to the rich guys. It's all a scam. Even when I was going to school and they're sitting there going, you're not going to get a good job if you don't get good grades. I was the one sitting there going, you're a liar. Shut up. I just knew the teacher was lying. I knew school was bullshit. I knew college was bullshit. I knew university was a lie. I always knew it was a trick and a con. I didn't truly understand things to the level I understand them now, but I had an intrinsic understanding and I think everybody does. If you're in a gas station and it's three in the morning and a Lambo pulls up and a guy gets out of it, you're thinking criminal, drug dealer, gangster. You're not thinking, ah, he has a uni degree because you could, yo, you're not going to think that. So when you see money, people don't even associate the money they see with university, but then they go, I want to make money. So in a university, it doesn't make sense. So school is a scam and it's the biggest scam on earth. The reason it's a scam is because it operates in a vacuum. It operates in a vacuum because it cannot be fairly compared to any other service. So you can get a loan for school, but you can't use that money for anything else because if they were to open it up and put the school, the education system into the fair market of capitalism, it would fail. If I were to give you a hundred grand and say, you can get a degree or you can buy a crypto or you can start your own business or you can do anything you want with it. Who's going to choose a degree? Nobody. So they say you can only get the money if you use it for education, which allows it to operate inside of a vacuum because operate the side of a vacuum is one of the few things on the planet which is allowed to be non -competitive. It's not competitive against any other investment. Everyone knows that, but you can only get the money for that. So you can't get the money to invest in anything else. So you end up doing it, learning something that is outdated, slow to learn. There's more, it doubly inflates. There's more degrees every single year, meaning the value of a degree decreases and the price goes up every single year. So it's worth less each year. It costs more year on year. There's no other industry where you can even get away with that. You get wrecked. Except the educational system. I think everybody knows that the system and the path they lay out for you is not a path that's going to lead to where you want to be.
A highlight from 220: Dont Get Caught up in Scams
"Dr. Alan Laika here and I'd like to welcome you to how to live a fantastic life show where we will be discussing the important aspects of your life. We hope to inspire you to live the best life you can get out of your comfort zone and explore the awesome world around you break through your barriers take inspired action use the difficulties in your life to achieve the best version of you. Ladies and gentlemen today I've got a very special guest his name is Chris Parker a Southern California native he lives just outside of Disneyland and has been connected to technology websites and internet addresses for 25 years. In the year 2000 he launched what is my IP address dot com you know back then this was a very new field but today it's got over 9 million visits a month which is huge. Chris realized that as technologies advanced individuals and businesses were falling victim to scams and cyber crime and I think a lot of people have been scammed in their lives and would like to basically become of it so Chris has developed as a website to help this and a podcast to help this but his story is intriguing and amazing so welcome Chris. Thank you for having me on the show Alan. Thank you so much for being here now tell me how did you get to where you're at now hi tell me your story. So the story starts with working for a company and we need to know the IP address so we could send files to one of our partners back in the early days of the internet back when it was Lycos and AltaVista not Google for searching and we couldn't find an easy way to figure out our IP address and ultimately we figured it out and I thought you know I have an internet connection at home I can go ahead and start up a little website to do that and I did that and over a number of years it grew from just random people visiting to me adding answers to frequently asked questions became a hobby became a site hustle and ultimately it became my full -time job. Wow that is pretty amazing you know here's something that started as a very simple concept but we got to remember back in the early 2000s the internet was very difficult I mean we had dial -on connections back then we had we couldn't get on like we do now so that was a lot of foresight so how did you have the foresight this was going to go someplace. I wish I could say that I had this foresight of the future and I just knew exactly where the internet was going but that was actually not the that was not the case it was just a solution to a problem that I was having I found the solution and I made the solution available to other people which I think is a lot about what the internet has historically been is you know here's information here's solutions here's questions and here's answers and we're just going to make it available to people for free. Yeah and I think that's true and that is largely what people have done but of course when you offer something for free there's other ways to make money off a site as well like there's advertising and things like that that allows you now to turn a site into something that is a money generating site. Yep and that's exactly what I did originally started back using Google AdSense when they it's been a fun journey of learning how to monetize a site and learning that people coming and looking for IP addresses aren't necessarily looking to buy stuff in the moment but over the years and as people have become more interested in privacy and security there's all sorts of privacy and security products that we can recommend to people and we get a little bit of commission when people buy that and it's great because then I don't have to charge for the site. Yeah that is huge and the big thing you started to realize is privacy, security and scamming is a whole business unto itself because there's so much of problems with that going on. Yeah I mean I think a lot of us think of scammers as some guy sitting in their mom's basement in a hoodie trying to take advantage of people and really in the last couple of years it has become crime syndicates and big business not big business in the sense of that we think here in the United States but there are countries where they have set up call centers where there's a hundred people employed carrying out scams against people and while we think of that as like oh my gosh they're taking advantage of people I think they're looking at more of like I'm providing my family food but it's become business they have performance improvement programs when the scammer isn't bringing in enough money they've got the supervisors listening in on the calls and coaching them in the way that maybe a call center here in the US would do that when they're selling computers. You know that's so scary of how they've turned that into a big business on something that's so nasty and so takes advantage of people's it just is a terribly nasty thing to me Chris. Yeah and it all starts with exploiting a lot of it just starts with exploiting our brains whether they're calling us texting us emailing us or in the old days sending us a fax they're working to exploit the mechanics of our brain by using the urgency emotional triggers authority to our circumvent normal red flags that we would put up and that gets us to in a state of like oh I need to take care of this right now and we pull out our credit cards we log into our bank accounts and we give people things that we wouldn't normally give them. Yeah you know it's and it comes surreptitiously you know when I used to be a doctor in my office I had staff that used to do a lot of the banking for me and a lot of the things with that and one day we couldn't get into our account properly and another page came up and so my staff member that was doing this thought this was strange so she went to the bank and the bank said oh that's okay just put your information in there and sure enough 20 minutes later money started going from my account. Now we had to raise Cain and argue with the bank and so on about getting our money and finally it had to go to the highest echelons before they reimbursed us for this but it was it was terrible because even the bank was sucked in by it. Yeah the good thing is banks have definitely gotten much better about it. A good story I have is that my wife is from Singapore and as with a lot of the eastern culture customers to send money to parents and family members for holidays and whatnot and the local bank that I work with didn't do international transfers and so I went down to my local big bank that would do international transfers, deposited some money, waited a couple days for it clear, then set up a wire transfer to a family in Singapore and the next day I got a phone call from the bank saying hey we noticed you just set up a bank account and just started sending money to someone overseas. How do you know this person? I'm like oh it's my wife's family. Well have you met them? Like why are you sending the money? Are you sure it's the right account? I was kind of annoyed with the process but at the same time I was delighted the bank was actually watching out for people and rather than just saying you want to send money go ahead and send it, they're actually starting to act in the interest of consumers and call and ask questions which is a really good thing to do when you think you're part of a scam, ask questions. Well that's huge and I think people have to realize that sometimes people come up with these barriers to getting things done but it's in your best interest because scams are terribly common. Once I was talking to one of the people on my credit card and they said one out of four transactions is a scam transaction. That was scary. Now I'm sure it's improved since that time because they put more protections on credit cards and things like that but could you imagine trying to do business when one out of four is a scam? That's why they charge such high fees to everybody I guess. It's horrible to think that there's so much scams going on and the unfortunate thing is the day that we're recording is there's one set of scams and even if this episode airs a week later there's a whole new set of scams that have come out that are different. Yeah exactly and it's scary. I mean all of us have seen the African scams of somebody writing you and they want to move money from one account to another and they need you to help them. I think the biggest problem there is you have to question why they're asking you if they've got this huge amount of money. They certainly shouldn't be randomly reaching out to you or you have this long lost uncle over in Europe that is wanting to give you money and stuff like that. Why is he giving me money? Doesn't he have any family there? They've heard great things about you online and know that you have noble character. There's a playing to your ego. You look at a lot of the things. The first tip -off I think is they're spelling mistakes in a lot of these and that to me is always a big tip -off or it's bad English or the person's located in Nigeria. Those are big tip -offs to me. The interesting thing is that I've heard from people that have done some research on this they have found that in some cases the scammers are intentionally bad using English and you and I would sit there and go why in the world would they be doing that? That just makes them easier to identify. The whole point is that you and I look at it and we see the bad English and we are immediately gonna not fall for it. If we ended up getting on the phone with the person and starting to communicate we would probably figure it out pretty quick that oh this is a scam and they've now wasted their time dealing with you and I. They're trying to get people that are looking beyond the spelling, not thinking about it, not being critical. The people that are essentially letting themselves be more vulnerable and that's who they're targeting not you and I. Yeah for sure. I don't know if that's true. I don't know if that's true or not but it's something that I still will always be leery if a person doesn't take the time even to put the proper English together. Yes yes as we should. As we should you know again these programs are everywhere to give you the proper grammar so why shouldn't you be using it you know? Yep but still I mean I've received emails that look that look so much like they came from my bank. The English was perfect, the formatting was perfect, you know everything except without an appropriate account number or without an appropriate name and it was a number of times where it's like oh let me call the bank. I'm never going to click on the email but let me call the bank and they're like no we didn't send you that email and I'm like wow that's a good one. Yeah and in Canada we keep getting these scams that there's that there's this is the police calling because you violated this law or this law or you know you this is the internal revenue service phoning because you violated this law and those you know sometimes I'll get five or six calls a day from phone numbers in around my community or in my community with these things and I can picture how an older person can totally be scammed by this. Yep and again it it triggers back into what we were talking about before there's that urgency of well if you don't take care of this right now you know the cops going to come knocking on your door and take you away and I'm an official of the government so you need to listen to me it's the authority the emotion the urgency and it just pushes us to comply we're wired that way for in society. Yeah I think that's huge that people have to realize that there are things that happen and that a lot of these scams are based on the fact that you have to be very very of aware the situation and you have to be susceptible to it so don't let it happen. Yep it's always one of those things you know when someone is urgent slow them down if they're a legitimate bill collector or it's a legitimate issue they'll slow down and wait with you you know talk to family members get someone else's opinion before you ever give anyone else money. Yeah ask always and and I think people are a little bit leery of asking because they don't want to be embarrassed they don't want to be ashamed by it but I think that's how you you make a lot of headway and you truly keep yourself out of trouble or you be at least become more knowledgeable about things before before you move forward. Yep and there's there's definitely within like the romance scams is when they start building up a relationship they actively work to separate their target from their family and friends they will they'll start saying well you know they they don't want us to be together that they don't understand us they don't have your best interest at heart and they actually work to distance their targets away from their friends and family. Yeah I think that's that's true and as you said the very fact that they could have a room full of people that are listening into the conversation and making sure the supervisor's checking about it is is a scary prospect because that is is the same thing that happens when a timeshare salesman is trying to get you to buy a timeshare. I was just at one of those presentations recently and I do own some timeshares that I love and they wanted me there to upgrade my knowledge on the timeshare well it had nothing to do with upgrading they wanted me to buy more points and so a lot of it came down to knowing where they were going with it before I even signed on the line because you know first you say no to one and then another person comes in you have to say no to another person and then another person comes in and you got to say no to the third person. I mean they try to wear you down with all this until you finally say yes. Yep and I don't want to say that necessarily that timeshares are a scam but like the techniques the scammers use they're the same techniques that that are used in sales they're just used to so much of a degree more than sales organizations would use. Yeah I think that's true and I think people have to realize that we're all susceptible under the right or wrong circumstances for that to happen. For example if you're stressed you're going to let things happen if you're doing things quickly things are going to happen so you have to realize that you're you can be more susceptible and remember if somebody is offering you a true value something they'll wait for you to come on they they're not going to insist that you buy yesterday you know. Yeah one of the stories that I've heard that kind of agrees with that point is that it used to be that con men would look through the obituaries to find people who had a relative who just died knowing that they're an emotionally fragile state and they would go after them with their con knowing that well they're already they've got so much going on their emotions are already so spent they've got a way in where they can take advantage of someone. Not so much these days but they're pretty evil in a sense. You know and it's true I remember one of those scams was when somebody just passed away back in the 20s somebody I forget the name of the movie but the the person would come up and say oh your husband ordered this bible for you and it had your your name in it and you need all you have to do is pay here you know and and you know totally a scam but you know based on people's emotions and guilt. Yep and also that like well I want oh gosh there's this positive memory my my loved one was doing this for me how could I not pay for it? Yeah and and that's where the scam comes in because you're willing to accept that you're willing to accept that would happen and I know the movie was called Nickelodeon by the way so interesting concept and interesting times. Definitely not a kid's show. Definitely not a kid's show. So so Chris this show is called How to Live a Fantastic Life Show. How do you um let's put it this way how do you live a fantastic life in view of the fact that there's so many scams going on out there? I think part of it is you know doing the podcast that I do that you know I've been in business my company makes enough money that I can afford to run a podcast and educate people on my own dime and trying to think about other people. From a Christian perspective you know one of the things that wrestled I've with in my business is praying for my business to do better. I always kind of felt like oh that just that just doesn't feel right you know praying praying for my business to be more profitable yeah I want to help people okay and so my wife and I talked about it and we we started we kind of changed the paradigm in the sense that hey we want to give to we want to give a set amount of money to charity and in order to do that we need to pray for the business to be profitable in order that we can help other people and so I think for me that's been kind of one of my that perspective has been kind of one of my guiding lights is is looking at you know part of what makes me happy and what helps me to have a wonderful life an amazing life is giving to other people and helping people around me. I know that I've you know whether it's the resources that I've earned that I can give back or it's the knowledge that I've learned about scams that I can help that can share with people and give back to me that has really that helps you know helps me sleep at night helps me to enjoy what I do when I feel like it has an impact more than just for myself. That's huge now here is the flip side of that question you know we've got a lot of listeners out there and they are wondering how they can have a fantastic life in view of the fact there's so many scams out there. I think it ties back to that like we don't want to live our lives paranoid we don't want to be afraid that every knock on the door is some bad person every phone call from a number that we don't know is someone trying to steal money from us I think it's just a matter of being aware that those things are out there slowing down and you know not getting flustered when things happen you know we don't have to there's no social contract saying that when your phone rings that you have to answer the phone and have a conversation with it if it's something important they're gonna leave a message same thing with someone showing up at your door you know there's we don't we don't we've created a lot of social contracts that make us feel obligated we don't need to be obligated to those things I think we want to take care of people we want to be around our friends and family and I think that's part of it is just not not letting ourselves get caught up in the scams.
A highlight from Gupshup keeps the customer conservation going in a mobile first world, Podcast
"This is Doug Green and I'm the publisher of Telecom Reseller, and I'm very pleased to have with us today Gaurav Kachawa, who's the Chief Product Officer at Gupshop. Gaurav, thank you very much for joining me today. Pleased to be here. Thanks for having me. Well, today we're going to be doing a special podcast in AI, but this is a very interesting application of AI that we're going to be learning about in just a minute. And what's exciting about this is Gupshop has created some platforms or a platform that can be used in many interesting verticals. So it's targeted to a lot of our readers who are listening or watching. So we're going to dive into that. But first of all, what is Gupshop? Yes, Doug. Gupshop is one of the leading conversational engagement platforms. And by that, what I mean is in today's context, all your audiences are on social media applications like, you know, Instagram, WhatsApp in different countries. There are other applications as well, Line. So I think and of course, there is other channels like SMS, Google, RCS, Google Business Messaging, voice. So you see this fragmentation of all these channels and businesses want to engage with their customers on all these channels. Traditionally in developed markets, it's just been about email reminders. And when you go into other parts of the world, people are spread across all these applications. There are two billion people on WhatsApp platform itself, which has opened up a business API. So now businesses can engage with these customers. They can have catalog. They can have all kinds of rich interactions in these channels itself. So what we help businesses is bring AI -based automation. So whether it's, you know, learning about the products, it's about purchasing a product, it's about supporting post -purchase support, you can do all that into all these channels. Of course, we know how it works on the web widget. We have all seen the little widget on the website where we can interact with it. But most of the mobile -first countries, all these interactions are happening inside their chat experiences. Like similar to how you have all that in WeChat in China, now that's happening across all these channels, Instagram. If you want, you're in the middle of a night and you want to have a question, you literally go to the handle of that company and you start interacting and you expect the brand to respond. And that's the world we are in today where you want 24x7 personalized, relevant interactions with your brand on whichever channel you are. And the next generation is on Instagram, WhatsApp, and they expect to get timely feedback there. So we automate that, and we have an engine where we have created an Autobot builder where you can create a bot in a matter of minutes. You upload your content, you kind of point it to the website, and whatever content you have, in a matter of minutes, we can create your virtual agent, which acts like a chat GPT, but it's tailored to your business. And so literally, then that's just a matter of minutes. And then if you spend some time, a few days, a week, literally you can make sure that 80 % of your regular queries that you're getting can be handled automatically through a virtual agent. And then, of course, if the user wants to speak to a real human person, we'll have a process of handing it over to the human agent as well, with all the context and everything. So we provide this fully automated solutions for getting businesses ready for this age of AI and automation in very simple steps. So that's the overall context. We are, you know, a large late -stage startup based in US, but we are spread in 50 countries, and we have businesses in different sectors who are using us for automation. So what are the main industries you're serving? So clearly, banking and finance and retail are the two big largest segments because they have to cater to large consumer audiences who want to kind of interact, learn more about their products, and do transactions. So we have, you know, largest retail companies, largest banking and FinTech and loan providers, they're all using our platform to automate their front office, the transactions, as well as the post -purchase behavior. So I think those are the big ones, but travel, logistics, education, all those industries are also, you know, looking to automate their experiences, given all the, you know, the inflection point that chat GPT has sparked in everybody to think how, I mean, the one thing that has happened in the last six to nine months is the language understanding of machines has gone through a 10x improvement, and as a result, this conversation that I'm having with the bot can be had in any language, voice or text, real -time, with the kind of fidelity that was not possible before. Just as an inflection point, I mean, and as a result, everybody should be thinking about this process that I have, which is offline or based on downloading a mobile app or based on going to a website, how can I make it simple? We are in a user experience revolution phase, which is, I just want to speak to a website and tell him, tell the website or not, do this for me, simple. So we need this conversational layer over everything, everything we interact and that's the business we are in. So let's stay with that for a second. So what is the state of the union? What is the state of the conversational AI space? Yeah, that's a great question. I think, as we talked about, I think it has gotten a huge, I mean, it's an industry that's been around for a long time and 2007 is the whole Transformer architecture paper came along. So that powered up the GPT, the pre -trained Transformer model. And then I think with the chat GPT, it entered the consciousness of common people that, you know, this is such an awesome technology. Everybody was able to interact with it. It was the fastest from zero to a hundred million people using it. It kind of broke all records. And the reason it captured the imagination of people, if they can do their research personally, if you can benefit from it using BARD and chat GPT, they realize that potential on the businesses. Now imagine businesses who employ thousands of employees or hundreds, or depending upon what the size, they're saying, how do I get more efficiency? Can I have my people do high value added tasks? And can I take the mundane tasks and automate? And that's what is suddenly become the focus. There's not a single boardroom meeting where the question being asked is, can you be more efficient in your making products, delivering products, product research, servicing products? And this is not, I think we spend a lot of time on the negative, like, okay, is it going to displace jobs and stuff? I think every time there is a technology innovation, what we have seen is it actually ends up creating more jobs. It's just, those are higher, higher quality jobs. And I think that will happen here as well and people will learn. And I think people will, there'll be more jobs created. We have seen jobs like prompt engineer, prompt designer, all kinds of new jobs that are well -paying have come up that didn't exist before. So people will, people will say, okay, I'll, I'll kind of take a three month course and do this like, and back in the day, 2007, everybody was learning iOS development for mobile phones. And that was a giant industry. And now suddenly everybody's learning about how to design better prompts to talk to AI. So I think, I think we are in a phase, very exciting phase. I mean, I'm, I'm not the first one to coin this, but internet happened in 1995. iPhone movement happened. And now we are in a, what I call this large language model, LLM movement, and that's transforming every industry. There is a real five, five X improvement to be had in your five to 10 X improvement in some processes, and then companies will benefit from it and then the landscape of how people support their customers is going to change how you look for products on, if you are e -commerce and you want to, you're interested in a certain product and instead of spending three days of research and 10 hours of research, going to website to website and reading, you're just going to ask questions, show me the best by this dimension, and you'll get a processed, well -thorough researched answer in a table in a second. So it's kind of already two hours of research is solved into two minutes, talk about efficiency. Now you take in the business context and you're trying to do a deal and you have a lot of different data sitting in 20 ,000 different places, structure documents, databases, you just ask a simple question and it processes all the data and gives you the answer. It's like tremendous productivity gains. So what are some of the major global enterprises that you have been working with? Yeah, so I think we are, we are working with all the brands that, uh, you, you might be familiar with on the banking side, we have, you know, some of the largest banks that are using us to automate their, you know, financial transactions. Uh, so standard chartered, we looked at talking about ICICI, Citibank, pretty large brands that their retail, there are, there are some of the largest retailers who are working with us in terms of their automation, uh, projects, uh, B2B players like Coke who are using us for making sure, so all these corner shops have to supply, have to kind of buy supplies. How do they make their orders using WhatsApp and other channels so that they get stock delivered to them in time? Think of it as, you know, just, uh, automating the whole retailer and wholesale experiences. Um, we have education players like Khan Academy using us to, uh, you know, uh, engage with that, uh, you know, students. So I think just across industries, all the kinds of brands, uh, that, you know, you're familiar with are, are engaging with us to deliver automated experiences. Can you tell me more about the Autobot builder? Sure. So I think when we talk about saying, okay, how do I, I'm a small business or a medium sized business on enterprise. I love the chat GPT experience, but Hey, that's not business ready. It has, it pulls it straight on public domain data. It has hallucinations. It may make up stuff. I don't know if the quality of it, all those challenges are there. When you look at an enterprise, you want a layer of a tool that you can reliably use to put something out in front of the customers without worrying about, you know, um, that it may go astray. It may make up content from the website. You want to make sure it's trained on your content. It represents the way you hire an employee and train that person to understand the context of your business. We do the same thing. We will train the user on the knowledge base of the company. And we have a tool where we allow you businesses to give all the context, whether it's a website, there's a repository, PDFs, internal APIs, and we create using that content, a chat bot that is tailored to that business. And that process used to take weeks and months in the past by training intents, and then even the bot will say, I'm sorry, I didn't understand what he said, I mean, that used to be like, you know, a normal experience in the past, but now with LLM, the accuracy and the coverage has increased so much that in a matter of few minutes, we can fine tune a model, which will give you a chat GPT like experience for your own business. And that's what Autobot Builder is. I mean, we can literally, you know, if you're interested, you'd reach out to us. We can create a bot for you within a day. You can take it and deploy it in any channel you want. And, and I think that's a great experience to get started. And people are like, wow, I didn't imagine this can, this is possible in any language, right out of the box. Now you can say, okay, I want to teach more. I want to have a fine nuance, this kind of answers. I want to kind of make sure I bought this. So you have a teach mode where you can train like a real human. You can train that bot. So now what you're having is now you can make sure that if you had 10 people or 20 people or a hundred people sitting and answering, now what you do is they can focus on more high value added activities in your business, maybe they're focused on cross sell upsell, maybe they're focused on, you know, loyalty program. They make it, they're not answering the routine questions that was just about looking in a document and saying, okay, this part is available and it's available. And this price is this, yes, it supports this. I mean, these are catalog information. You don't want people just doing search and answering. I mean, bot can answer that better.
A highlight from Richard Heart Could Face LIFE IN PRISON (The End Of HEX?)
"Any of you guys from the SEC are listening I hope you are I want you to know in the deepest Deepest parts of your heart that I've saved a lot more people from being wrecked than you have Because I did everything I could to prevent people from putting their money into BlockFi Did you I did everything I could to prevent people from putting their money into Celsius? Did you I did everything I could to put people in charge of their own keys and get them to? Have self custody. Did you do that? I called the top on the day. Did you? What have you done? So I break my balls to save people. I'm warning people about bad daps fake airdrops Showing people constantly every single hack that happens right I hand out free coins out the ying yang I created free coins give them to Bitcoin quarters now creating free coins giving them to aetherium and every single er c20 holder I'm the giving tree of crypto. I raised 27 million for charity You know what the SEC did the SEC? 50 Got paid million dollars. All right, so that is Richard heart and whatever he says there I'm not sure if it's gonna help him when it comes to this big case against the SEC and we're gonna talk about the SEC case and Richard heart and what it means we also going to Talk about Bitcoin and where we're at with Bitcoin. So yesterday when we were on the show we said that It was decision time and Bitcoin needed to either break up or break down It looks like we got our break down and we are at the same level exactly the level which Annie said when she was in The show yesterday. She said it's gonna be twenty eight thousand eight hundred a presto about I said Is it gonna go up or down from here? She said it's gonna go down and she's looking for the twenty eight thousand eight hundred But look not all is lost We have dropped one level which is the 50 the 50 ma the 50 the 50 day moving average We've dropped that level but we are here at Another critical level. So I want to show you this this level here if you take Let me make sure you zoom out first. Let me go on today on to the daily and if you take this trend over here And okay, let me just get off the screen So if you take this trend line over here, it is exactly what Garrett said in terms of the trend So we are let me just get that a bit more a bit neater my charts are my charting skills on the screen I'm not great but you can see that Bitcoin is now moving back towards this trend line over here and probably if you look at that the Next critical level is about the twenty eight thousand. So we are going to talk about that We're also going to talk about this Bitcoin dominance spikes It's not a big spike but Bitcoin dominance actually did start going up and the reason why Bitcoin dominance started going up is because If you look at the bubbles you can see that there are two things that are really weighing down crypto So the first thing is the hex and pulse story. You've got hex down 26 % you got pulse down 45 % But I'll show you something very cool here when you look at hex and pulse Is that if you go to the hourly you can see that they're starting to recover on the hourly So yes, it's been a bad day for hex and pulse but if you go down to a shorter time frame What you can see is that these tokens are actually starting to turn and this may be your indicator that it might actually be buy Time so one of the things we are we should talk about today is we should talk about whether this is the end For hex and pulse or whether we're gonna get some kind of recovery now Magat says that Maybe it's not the end and maybe there's gonna be some kind of recovery the other big sector that you can see is Benicha Ave compound synthetics all the The DeFi token specifically the big DeFi 1 .0 tokens that have a lot of traction They got hit and we're gonna talk about why they got hit Because it's all got to do with curve and the hack that happened on curve But ironically it's actually not the hacker that's pushing down the price The big issue is that what's going on here could be a huge a huge hit to crypto This could be something that takes the market down by 10 or 20 percent overnight if it happens So we got to talk about all of that then I've got to Admit that I was half right and half wrong. So I said that FTX 2 .0 would never ever start I said that never ever start the exchange again And I was half right when I said it because I said it in context of the fact that the exchange token is going to be worth nothing and it is gonna be worth nothing but I was wrong because it seems like the FTX exchange is gonna restart. It's gonna restart pretty soon and We're gonna talk about that today. So there's a lot to talk about today. It's a massive massive show We haven't had a big news show like this for a long long long time Let's go. Let's get this on the road I Mean it's been a rough 24 hours for old coins If you look at that the old coin market hasn't been great and you can see it in the dominance Going back up towards that 50 % remember we were on forty nine and a half and you can see it in the banter bubbles Where you can see that the the the old coins have been really really really hard hit We're gonna talk about each one of them and why they've been hard hit And whether or not this is the end or whether we can expect another leg down Let me tell you that there is a real risk of another big leg down in crypto If if this curve situation doesn't resolve itself, then we've got a very very very big problem We're gonna get the defy the defy protocols the big defy protocols with all the traction They are going to get destroyed. They are going to get crippled if this curve thing pans out So it's a pretty serious thing We did start covering it yesterday, but I think we're gonna speak about it today because it could actually affect your portfolio It's also an amazing amazing amazing opportunity and I'll show you what the opportunity is regarding the curve token So I do have a long positioning curve I was stopped out a little bit of my curve position overnight because the price dipped and I'll show you whether or not it's worth actually getting into a similar trade on curve and where you should get into into Similar trade on curve because there's a lot of money to be made here There is a fort if you know what you're doing.

We haven't had news like this for a long time It's actually one of those days where I actually really want to do a show because there's so much to talk about So I think we should probably skip the formalities and just get straight into the hex story because it is a big big big story and I think the big question is what is Richard Hart gonna do is Richard Hart actually going to fight the SEC? or is he just going to be do what everybody else did and Actually settle and I think that I have some insight today. I'm gonna build a story today I'm gonna show you why I think that Richard Hart may actually fight this till the very end I don't think he's gonna just take the the settlement I'm gonna show you why in a few seconds, but for those of you don't know what is going on I think you obviously know who Richard Hart is we showed him in the beginning in the beginning of the show. We also We also on the eve of the launch of the Richard Hart Okay, we are set for you Richard What do you want people to know about you I got a big dick this here is three point one million dollars watches I don't know as big as diamonds you don't I do is Richard Genius legendary arrogant bit of a narcissist the benevolent king quarter -million hate me hate me I'm farther than you'll ever be in your whole life. Who does this guy think he is? Whatever the governments have been doing it's not worked out You've never had worse interest rates. Your money has never been worth less. Everything is getting worse Only thing that's making it better is crypto currency. It's better than the dollar. It's better than gold. It's better money Crypto is money without governments and it is money without banks You're not gonna meet another product like this as long as you live. Yes, every scammer in the world is gonna say this is the trailer for the Richard Hart movie and I think on the eve of the The Richard Hart story the SEC comes out and they make an announcement that they are suing Richard Hart aka Richard Schuler His real name is Richard Schuler and three unincorporated entities that he controls hex pulse chain and pulse X with conducted Conducting unregistered offerings of crypto asset securities that raised more than a billion dollars in crypto assets from investors Hart called on investors to buy crypto asset securities in offerings that he failed to register with SEC He then this is where it gets tricky He then deferred those investors by spending some of their crypto assets on exorbitant luxury goods This action seeks to protect the investing public and hold hot accountable for his action So the SEC coming out with one of their we caught you announcements. This is the document. It's about 27 pages I read all 27 pages so that you don't need to read 27 pages I'll show you the points that are actually important the points that actually make sense So the first point that actually makes sense is what hearted was he raised 2 .3 million etherium from investors with 678 million dollars for the hex project back then it appears at 94 to 97 % of these each deposit saver were Recycling transactions directed by heart and other insiders which enabled heart or other insiders to gain control of a large number of hex tokens What that means is that he was taking the ETH that was deposited and he was recycling them to get more Tokens for himself and other insiders again. This is the allegations as per the SEC He says investors also invested more than 354 million by depositing their crypto assets to the pulse chain public wallet address in exchange for the promise of a future delivery of PLS tokens in connection with pulse X investors invested more than 676 million dollars by depositing their crypto assets to the pulse X Public address in exchange for the promise of future delivery of pulse X tokens They're going after him for hex for pulse and for pulse X now up until this point this whole thing is just a civil case between heart and the SEC for Potentially selling unregistered securities to this point. It's pretty simple straightforward and probably the same charges at every other ICO Founder is going to face now. Some of them will fight the the charges and something won't fight the charges That's just that's just what it is. But this is the point where it gets a little bit more tricky. So if you look at page 7 so it's point up to him Additionally heart and pulse chain defrauded investors by misappropriating at least 12 .1 million of pulse chain investor funds instead of using these funds to develop and market the pulse chain network or even fulfill hearts explicit statement that invested funds support freedom of speech heart and pulse chain used 12 .1 million dollars of investor funds for hearty for hearts personal hearty luxury luxury purchase Including a five hundred fifty five carat diamond the biggest black diamond in the world expensive watches and high -end automobiles now But I mean that was the lifestyle that that that heart was actually and we all saw this we saw the sports cars We saw the watches now. There's a big question here Is this misappropriation of investor funds on the one hand? He did tell everyone that they were sacrificing their money and if you sacrifice the money Well, then you're not actually an investor and if you're not an investor, well, then you don't have any rights that investors have so what the SEC is going after him for is they're making an assumption that a these tokens are securities and that be that he actually Misappropriated funds now again the term misappropriated funds means that Investors had expectations investors had expectations that the funds would be used for a certain purpose. These weren't investors. These are people that Sacrificed their money and probably that's gonna be hearts defense now I wonder if he actually got any legal opinions Before he actually did this and if he did get those legal opinions I wonder if he actually listened to his lawyers or whether he's eager got the better of him because it's all very well You know, sometimes you you get advice from your lawyers and as you end up making more and more money You start thinking that you're more and more invincible and if you Feel more invincible then you may stretch what your lawyers have told you and kind of justified it to yourself that it's okay to use These funds perhaps perhaps you can call this marketing Perhaps you can call this, you know part of the game to try and get people to sign up to the next community You know and you could say that this was what you did The other issue is that it seems like the SEC said that he is a US citizen, but he also The offers offering for sale of hex and hex tokens have not been registered with a commission and they were available to US investors and I think that that may actually be Another another issue that he has I'll show you I'll show you I think it's a point Page 11 so point page 11 hex hex conducted the worldwide offering with no restrictions on who could access hex and hex dot -com and he said that when hit websites and These transactions can be traced to at least 21 ,000 156 wallet addresses including addresses that belong to investors in the United States.

Gavin Wax Will Hold a Peaceful Protest to Trump's Indictment
"Gavin, you're planning to hold an event tomorrow a response. Let's call it a peaceful and patriotic response. Tell us, what are you hearing? I know you're in touch with officials here in New York with law enforcement. Tell us what are you hearing on the ground in New York as this approaches. By the way, just to let people know the lay of this, Trump is flying in tonight. He's spending a night in the tower, of course, one night in the tower, and then tomorrow morning we'll be heading to face these demons directly. Walk us through what's going to happen tomorrow, what you're hearing. Well, it's definitely going to be a chaotic day tomorrow. There's no, there's no ifs and buts about it. We expect a full house tomorrow for congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, who was coming to New York City to lead this protest against the politicized prosecution and persecution of president Trump, the presumptive nominee for 2024 leader of the opposition, unprecedented. We're expecting a few hundred people to show up tomorrow. We're expecting a few hundred counter protesters as well. I've spoken to my Friends and sources within the NYPD. They are expecting a very aggressive response from the left. The park has been separated into two halves in north and south. And now this park, this is the lay of the gift hooks, the lay of it, is this near the courthouse? Is it down the street? Where is it? It is right in front of the courthouse. And up until a few weeks ago, you were still able to go off the steps into the courthouse. It's this kind of this big, beautiful art deco building. But that is now all been blocked off. You can't even see the steps, but the park is as close to the courthouse as you could physically get. I mean, it's within, you know, you could throw a stone. So there's the park, there's the street, and then the courthouse. Correct.

What Happened to Me on January 6th With Brandon Straka
"That the last two years, of course, have been very difficult for you personally for those who aren't aware with your story and what happened to you. After January 6th, let's quickly summarize, you came to D.C., you were here for January 6th. And again, correct me if I make any missteps here, you went to Congress. You never went inside the building. You filmed what was happening. You made a video, you posted it, and then things started to go bad for you. Explain what you did on January 6th and what the repercussions were you for for you personally. Yeah, no, you nailed all of those details. So I was actually invited to be a speaker on capital grounds at a permitted event that was supposed to follow president Trump speaking at the ellipse on January 6th. That's the reason why I went to Washington, D.C. to speak. And so as I was approaching the capital grounds after president Trump spoke to go to my speaking engagement, I started getting a lot of text messages and things like that on my phone from people around the country that I know who were watching on television saying, we're seeing or hearing on the news that people are going inside the building and something's going on. That sounded unusual to me, so I started shooting a video and I was approaching from the east side. So I wasn't even on the west side of the building where people were, you know, some people were breaking windows and fighting with police officers. So you were on the peaceful side of the Congress. Yeah. Absolutely. And I didn't witness any of that. I didn't see anyone breaking any Windows or in fact, I didn't even see any police officers. There were literally zero police officers, zero. On the east side grounds. And I got to the steps of the capitol and the east side were thousands of people were gathered, but facing away from the capitol, mind you, they weren't they weren't facing toward the capitol trying to charge inside. They were all standing facing away from the capitol holding signs and one man is visible in my video at the top of the stairs, calling down to the people blow shouting. They've opened the doors. They're letting us in. We're going inside. We're going inside. So I walked up to the top of the east side stairs and when I got there, the two large metal open doors of the capitol were wide open. And there was a crowd of several hundred people there, some were trying to get inside the majority were just kind of shooting a video like I was. And so I shot a video for 8 minutes outside of the building before a man came out of the capitol dot on a bullhorn and he said they've cleared Congress. Everybody move out, move out. They've cleared the building. You
Caller: Large Crowd Was Very Engaged for President Trump in Waco
"At the rally Saturday. I understand. Tell me about it, please. Yes, sir. I was at the rally and my mom got there about 5 a.m. and already there was about a hundred people in line and hundreds more coming in and it was just very enthusiastic crowd. We ended up being about 7 rows from the stage and just a great crowd of people and a good rally. What do you say to those supposed know it alls who say that mister Trump's popularity is lacking these days that the crowds are not as enthused, they're not as large. What would you say to them? I would say it was still a very, very large crowd and I would say that the poll numbers are fine. There was about, I would say 8, 8000, maybe 10,000 inside the gate and then however many thousands outside that were there. And again, it was 80°. And just very, you know, sports going on and I like him is primarily conservative, but it was in a more liberal part of town and so to bring that many people out, I mean, that was still incredible numbers. Based on your experience that day, are you even more of a supporter of president Trump than you were before? I mean, did this experience lead you to fight even harder for his election again? Oh yes, yes. I was already, I don't think I could get much more enthusiastic than I already am, but yeah, for sure. For sure. Benjamin. Go ahead, finish your thought, I'm sorry. It was just a very enthusiastic speech and I think one of his best ones yet and he was very got the crowd very engaged
Please Support Our 'Food for the Poor' Campaign
"We are in our march food for the poor campaign, a Christian ministry that is saving lives all over the world. These children throughout the world are being blessed by your gifts. And as we head into the weekend, we're so close to getting to the halfway point. Our goal is $40,000. It's a big goal, but we'll get there. We're going to get there. I know we have our own problems, but it's safe to say that none of us face conditions like what children and families on the ground in places like Honduras and Haiti, Guatemala, Jamaica go through. I've been there. I've seen children eating just out of filthy bulls. No food, no nourishment, but you can change that. I'm so impressed that already we have about $18,000 raised. We got a long way to go. Our goal is 40,000. I want you to bless our campaign by getting us over at least the halfway point. Please get us over $20,000 today. For a gift as little as $47, you'll be able to feed two starving children twice a day for an entire year. Do you know how great that's going to make you feel? You're going to feed two starving kids two hungry children. For $47, that's two meals twice a day for an entire year. That's a game changer. Trust me, your gift in any amount will not only save lives, but you'll feel great too throughout the entire week, and you're going to do some like I like to say you can do a little bit of God's work. You're going to spread the love and joy of God and Jesus Christ. Through our Christian ministry partners, food for the poor. And all we need, we just need a hundred people. If I can touch a hundred hearts today, we'll be well over our halfway point of our goal.
Rev. Frank Pavone: Pro-Lifers Gather at California State Capitol
"I'm sitting right in front of the capitol building in Sacramento and I see about 30 different tents representing pro life organizations that work up and down the state of California. There's youth groups here. There's pregnancy centers. There's educational groups. There's activist groups. In fact, just down the street, there were about a hundred people that just walked down the street to a nearby abortion facility and they're praying there now. And we expect hundreds if not thousands of Californians to be gathered here on the Plaza in front of the capitol in just a couple of hours from now. And you know, California has been facing a real, real bad situation with abortion. You know, they passed this proposition one back in the midterms. They got abortion enshrined in their constitution, but these people here in California are not slowing down. They're not being deterred. They know that they can save lives every day and they know that nothing is permanent when it comes to American public policy. They're determined to change it, Todd, for the protection of these children and their families. Well, I think
Finding Wisdom in the Hard Times
"Let's start in ecclesiastes 7 versus two through 5. Here's what the preacher has to say. It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting. For death is the destiny of everyone. The living should take this to heart. Frustration is better than laughter, because a sad face is good for the heart. The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning, but the heart of fools is in the house of pleasure. It is better to heed the rebuke of a wise person than to listen to the song of fools. Okay, so we enter into this and we asked, okay, what does it say? And often we see this dichotomy set up between two different kinds of living, right? And in this dichotomy that appears over and over again as a theme at ecclesiastes, we have wise Ness and foolishness. Like what leads to wisdom and what leads to foolishness. And this is where ecclesiastes started. Remember the preacher said, I tried to find life in great works. I tried to find life in great pleasure. I tried to find life in just pursuing everything that would make me feel good, right? And what really brings wisdom and this first aspect is kind of offering us this countercultural idea that I think is very true, which is what actually helps us grow as people. And the reality is pleasure and good times if you ask a hundred people, when did you grow the most in your life? Did you grow the most through pleasure peace and good times or did you grow the most through hard times? I think almost all of us would say, we don't want hard times and we don't like hard times, but we grow the most in hard times. And if you read through this idea of like, it's better to be in a house of mourning. It's better to be there than in a house of feasting. Death is everyone's destiny and the living should take this to heart. Okay, that's morbid, right? That's how we feel and our culture. But we have to ask ourselves a question. Is it true, though? It's like, yeah, it's absolutely true. Death is absolutely the destiny of everyone. We are all 100% terminal as Christine Kane says, we are all headed in the same direction. And what the preacher is saying is that when you take that to heart, you actually number your days rightly. If you are real with yourself about life and death, you will live a better life.
"hundred people" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"To be very, very careful. So our attitude has been relative to facial wreck is kind of a crawl walk run, we pilot it, we pilot it with a few hundred people, we got their feedback, we it's an opt in only then we expanded it to our clubs and frankly, we have not yet expanded it beyond beyond our club capacity, which is about 7500 people out of the 70,000 sized building. The feedback has been fantastic. It's an excellent excellent experience. And that's the way we're looking at it, right? We don't hold the data. It's you walk up facial rec and then we've got that linked to your ticket account and we can ease your entry into the building and it's a club. That's the only reason that we use it. We would never use it to deny entry because then you really are leaning into all the worst fears that people have about big brother having too much information about you. So we're still in that, let's call it crawl to walk phase of its implementation. And if we believe we can implement it more enterprise wide, we'll do that, but only at the pace that our customers are fans are comfortable. Steve, I just have one question for you. And it's an important one, right? You know that that bill's bangles game was canceled at the end of the NFL season, right? And so there was a chance that if the bills didn't indeed play the chiefs, they would move to a neutral stadium and Mercedes Benz stadium was named to be that stadium, right? And so that would have been, I think there was more than 50,000 tickets sold for that game if it were to take place in Atlanta, obviously the Bengals upset the bill so it's not. Talk to us about that process. How did the NFL approach you? How did you secure the rights to be that venue should indeed the championship game have taken place? Good question. Well, we've got to fantastic stadium first and foremost. And we've got a city like Atlanta with the busiest airport in the world. So they're thinking about how do we import two fan bases that are not local and bring them in as efficiently as possible. So hartsfield airport and our setup, which shined really, really well for the Super Bowl that we had back a couple of years ago, Atlanta is a city that's able to accommodate big events like this in college football and world cups. So we were kind of at the top of the consideration set. And for us, it's a bit of an endorsement of the efforts that we've made. The stadium that we've built that they would look to Atlanta and Mercedes Benz stadium as that alternative venue. This is a one in a million thing. This may never happen again, but the fact that it came our way, we did a lot of work preparing for it that, but happy it goes to it's going to Kansas City in a normal home field advantage, but we were prepared and ready to execute. Special thanks to Steve cannon vice chair of AMB sports and entertainment. You
How Many J6 Defendants Are Still in PRE-Trial Detention?
"We are at the two year anniversary here. Let me ask you, and by the way, God bless you for the work you're doing. And the website is patriot patriot freedom project dot com if people want to support it, I encourage them to do that. How many people are still in pretrial detention? Two years later. So you have just over a hundred people that are still, you know, that are in jail, right? And of that number, you have maybe 40 people that are in pretrial detention. You have people that are awaiting sentencing, you have people that are awaiting who have been sentenced and are awaiting transfer to prison. People think everybody is in the D.C. jail. That's not true. There's only about 17 or 18 guys left at the D.C. jail. Some of them have already been sentenced. Some of them are still waiting trial, like Jose Padilla. He has not had his day in court. And he's not going to go to trial. So the summer. He's been in jail for two years. Pete Schwartz, he's been in jail for almost two years. He just went to trial. He was found guilty. Of course, in record time. And I'll tell you what's also happening in a lot of use cases. You know, in D.C., nobody is going to get a fair trial Charlie. We all know that. And Pete Schwartz trial, you had a drawer in the drawer box who literally stood up in the middle of trial. She did not like the videos that were being shown. She ran out of the courtroom, ran out of the drawer box, ran out of the courtroom. I mean, it's unheard of. And there should have been a mistrial right then and there. But not this judge, the judge said no. We're going to continue on. And then when the verdict came in and all these remember found guilty, you had jurors giving these men the middle finger. This is unprecedented what we're dealing with. And this DoJ is not done. We have a very failed judicial system and we're in big trouble here and we're going to be dealing with this until January of 25 when hopefully we have a president in The White House just going to say enough is enough now.

So I read this book, okay, I'm lying. I listen to this book. It can't be counted as reading. If you're dyslexic and you only listen to it. But the point is, I got the information from this book. It was literally called go for no. And apparently getting to the nose, there's a lot of benefit to that, especially if you do what crystal just said. If especially if when you get to know and it's not the nicest no, she just says, hey, thank you for letting me know. If there's ever anyone else, feel free to let me know. If there's anyone else that you think should come on my show, feel free to let me know. And you were able to take, I would say most of us, as human beings, would be like, F that person.

And I don't know if you've had that one person that was not nice no, come on the show yet, but it sounds like you probably closer to it because you worked with these other few people. So go for no. And don't be afraid of no. I sold door to door. Chris, I don't know if you knew this. I sold door to door for several years in a row.

"hundred people" Discussed on Technovation with Peter High (CIO, CTO, CDO, CXO Interviews)
"Dmitri why don't we just jump right into it and would love your kind of analysis of what has happened <hes>. Know there's been a lot of <hes>. A lot of controversy there seems to be consensus that <hes>. The the hack is the work of the russians a country. At least that you're quite familiar with in terms of its tactics relative to this. Maybe just sort of set the lay the land if you would. Yeah absolutely so. I think it's important to understand that while this is a great situation and certainly <hes>. Will likely be highly detrimental to our national security in the short and medium-term <hes>. The not an act of war. This is not a digital harbor as as some politicians have been talking about this <hes>. In the last few weeks the important thing to understand is from what it looks like right now and we have now your information on what this operation has been at least over. Last year is traditional espionage <hes>. The targets have primarily been government agencies with some <hes>. Technology companies is wild wrapped into it but primarily focused on saft of secrets that are as you can imagine of high priority on to russian intelligence <hes>. If it proves to be the <unk>. As is most likely the case right now so <hes>. This was an dacia operation in incredibly well executed very very patient but at the end of the day the goal is staff that goes not destruction. The goal was not the leaking of that public information. There's small chance we may still see that at n than we have to reevaluate our assessment. But for now at least it looks like the exact that the us government the us intelligence community would be proud to have executed against our around adversaries. I'm now from a supply chain perspective. You know we do now understand that <hes>. You know we have a major threat factor that most organizations have not been focused on which as their it providers like solar wins like resellers that sell their microsoft cloud offerings which you can be compromised <hes>. Without really having any way to control for for that risk at least on the front end of the of the intrusion cycle. Are you at this point. Confident that it that it is the russians indeed so the interesting thing about this <hes>. Particular intrusion is that the private sector really does not have attribution here unlike virtually every other operation. We have seen or last ten years. Where many in the private sector including <unk>. Former company grabs strike was very good at attributed jackson in many of them very quickly this one because the tradecraft was so new and unique never before seen. There's really nothing to tie back to any previous operations. We have seen <hes>. To really give us good understanding who the adversary may be. So all the attribution so far <unk>. From government officials obviously intelligence agencies are very good at <hes>. Attributing attacks based on your variety of different sources and methods that go well beyond just technical measures so for now at least <hes>. You know we have to wait to see what the evidence is going to come out with regards to this. We may very well seen in the future. Will this operations justice department has been establishing <hes>. Very good. I think precedent for indicting <hes>. Foreign intelligence operatives on a regular basis for various various acts that they've done against this country in <hes>. You for private sector companies. What what would you advise chief. Information officers chief information security officers others were involved in <hes>. In at least trying to grapple with the consequences to their organizations and ensuring that the damage is limited the extent to which they can. I think this really underscores the topic that you talked <hes>. On a number of occasions about which is that every organization out there needs to start with an assumption that already inside. this particular gates underscores. Just how futile. It is to try to build walls around the perimeter of you network because someone somewhere is going to get through through through new mechanism that you haven't even thought of or or can't control four so it could be supply chain attack next time. It could be zero table an ability. It could be a known vulnerability that you've got patched against that or could be an insider <hes>. The number of methods that they can get in are numerous. And if you're trying to chase your tail china <unk>. For closed down each one. You're always gonna fail because there's always gonna be one more thing that you adding accounted for this out there that you may not have even thought of <hes>. And the reality. Is that if you start with assumption that capable adversary will get inside in. The east are for their activities within the network. That's when you can get an advantage. Where if you detect them quickly into jackson before joining damage you can prevent for from any damage any damage from being done. And if you look at how <hes>. They executed this particular attack. Yesterday came in through the solar winds vulnerability where they came in through the reseller <hes>. On the was selling office re sixty five and azure licenses to their customers but at the end of the day once they move past that initial doctor they started doing traditional things started maintain persistence trying to kill security products. Move laterally trump. and that's what you had the opportunity to detect them in fact some organizations have to talk to them and <unk>. Jacqueline before any any bhakta <hes>. Before they had any impact to the company.
