A Deep Dive on the Cashew Family
"So roughly speaking. How many taxonomic units within this family. We're going say species. We'll go a species here but how big is and a car. Dac eight hundred species somewhere around there. We're constantly and finding new species surround eight hundred contender about eight two or three or four genera- it depends on who you ask for aforementioned reasons and is there like a center diversity for the group or the kind of globally spread. Yeah so malaysia Southeast asia senator diversity for sure. But they're really found on most. I mean most landmasses have heard. Ac temper plants are. They're tropical answer mostly tropical but certainly very diverse in temperate zones as well. They're not a new zealand and not in extreme southern tip of south america Extreme northern places. They're not typically although when john and i were doing the trick for the floor of north america someone reported finding of poison ivy in very northern part of canada. And we just no way. We didn't believe in sure enough photo of it. In this specimen basically there is a hot spring in somehow some probably averred carried it seed of poison ivy from southern canada and it happened to land on this. Very warm spot. It doesn't get as cold and it's there while so yeah that's remarkable and at least with this you can say with some certainty. It wasn't human involvement. i don't know too. Many people planting poison ivy seeds. But a lotta really cool bio geographic questions you can answer or ask their potentially ensure there's endless answers to or hypotheses. You could come up with but you mentioned in the beginning that you started very broad. And that's still a lot of species to contend with. What were some of the broader questions. You were just trying to ask a lot of just. How do these generous sort out. Roughly how many species can we throw in them. Those sorts of things. Yeah so i was interested in looking at the certain classification evolution across the whole family and looking at the trends and the different policies that have evolved within the family chemistry often the family of really trying to get a basic handle basic understanding of what are some of the sort of units within the family whether those genera were there larger groups of general things that things that we call serb families or through a claims within the family evolutionary units within the family. So he did some sequence analysis in a lot of different logical characters To do that and got kind of an interview picture of the evolution of the family. It was large reflective of what we what people have thought for for a number of of decades in century. In fact about how the family is kind of organized internally but there were some big surprises in that two things that had been treated as separate families bhai som- had been put into the family of by others. Were certainly found to be within the carnousie. So i'm not nice nicely reassuring us in abilities of people before us to assess the investigation of the family using traditional techniques and then from there was able sorta kinda pony on on some of the general that we are particularly interested in and do some more kind of detailed apologetic analyses of of some of the clays within the families of this evolutionary unions within the camera. Yeah hearing it that way. It makes sense why. You'd want to start broadly and then start taking about tinkering with the smaller units of this. But it's always really exciting to me when you read these big genetic treatments of groups and you're like wow yeah. They were pretty spot on a century or more ago. And that's to me really cool when you see this sort of morphological species concept in the genetic

Sarah Alcorn on her podcast "Ivy League Murders"
"Of cambridge. And it's a super liberal bastion and growing up. I think part of part of what motivated us to do this. We really grew up in with harvard in our backyard. You know harvard square was our hangout places teens and so but i think for a lot of people the ivy league. Is you know as exotic as a place like hawaii. So that's part of the reason why we put this together was to to our whole premises. Basically got somebody really intellectually intelligent but emotionally not so much and so we see that time and time again and not everybody went to i. D league at some of the victims are actually from the ivy league is also. We're really trying to explore crimes. Crimes academia crimes of crimes. We always think of privilege is being this bubble where things like that can't happen. So that's what we're looking into and we're trying to just take true crime to next level and put a little bit philosophy or history or literature in there too because it is ib leak. And that's our niche actually with the ivy league murders. Hey it's the same kind of mystique as white people so fascinated with celebrities. They wanna know what happens when they're not in front of the camera. We all these scandals people are drawn to it in with an ivy league schools at. You might see these captains of industry or tech giants or whatever. They may turn out to be. You know what's what's going on. When they're out of the hollow they're not immune from human frailties which are know mental illness and drugs and alcohol an obsession and love and sax and money and greed. And all those all the things that motivate people to to make the ultimately bad decision of murdering somebody else. Did you think that some of the people who have that kind of education just will say the killer obviously that they thought that there was some sort of an entitlement. We find that quite a lot. In in fact some of the subjects that we look at a for example thinking of dr grindr which is one of our episodes absolutely brilliant doctor and he perpetrated a ridiculous crime sloppiest crime in you know so it does go into my theory that some people could be. They can be very intelligent in certain categories and then just suck Committing crimes. Do think. There's a lot of like entitlement or hubris or whatever you wanna call it where they think like. I'm so much smarter than everybody in these blue collar. Cops will never be a the solve this crime and it's like dude. You know the you did a terrible job on the crime. Sorry you know varied sloppy. That's one thing. We like to look at There is there's a famous writer. Dominic dunn really was fascinated with crime in privilege and is a great quote. and i'm paraphrasing. Can't remember the exact quote but that people are more interested in seeing kings fall than peasants. Basically in that the kind of you know serfs or whatever the phrase is that he says. I just think it applies to this as well because i think the presumption is when you go to an ivy league. Everything's perfect after that right. You make six figures year. Everything's taking care of van.
Adam Eli: How Social Media Is Changing Queer Activism
"I'm excited talk to you. Because i am so fascinated by this rise of instagram activism. And i don't mean that in a pejorative way but it does complicate or change. How i think about what activism is or isn't so i wonder if you can start off by talking about how you personally define as and how that definition has changed with social media so onto the first part i i view activism as finding an issue within society and either drawing attention to that issue or providing a creative solution and ivy social media as one of the tools to do that so i think that i ask that because i used to have this more traditional view of activism as an example that people act. Up community organizers as activists planning attending in towards a specific goal as. You said. It's harder for me now. To tell like who are the activists who are like on the ground doing that work compared to just you know posting infographics as an example on instagram. No definitely and that's why. I think the word community organiser is really helpful because community organizer is a lot of the work i think activism is a really really big term and i think that that's good. I think it has an umbrella term. It's a very very inclusive term. But if you wanna talk about that traditional type where your boots on the ground bringing people together concrete direct action as they call. I think the word community organizers can be really helpful and if you think about what act up does activated so many things but one of the things they did was they dispersed information and try to explain it to the world which is why act up was always active as always always known. For being extremely media savvy they would bring camcorders camcorders like handheld recorders to hospitals and they will bring protests and they would make videos and send them to news companies and send them to their parents and send them while the world to show them. What the front lines of the aids crisis was so. Could you imagine what it would have been able to do with instagram. Live own right because this is just one other tool and had existed back then like act up taken advantage of it so hard exactly and so another big thing that an north of who. I think you've had on your podcast right. Yes she always talks about speaking through the media and one of the things that an who had a background in television journalism taught act up. How did you genius smoothest. She said you always need to get a sound by each gave. Like a quick thing that they can use ten to fifteen seconds that they can use for tb spot. Because that's all they're gonna put they're not gonna put like full linked interview with a street activists. Let's the exact same idea as a tweet. It's like a small easily digestible piece of information. That is catchy. And get your point across. And so i think social media is simply a tool that contemporary activists are using that build on the tradition of other activists. I'm so glad you brought up northrop for those who don't know she's a legendary activist. Who was a part of act up and queer march many things. When i interviewed her she talked about how. The job of the activist is not to be liked. It has to accomplish something specific about a specific issue to advance progress. And i was trying to figure out how to think about as i call the instagram activism. Because i see that operating directly against social media. I think that we want to be liked. And for the first time ever we can quantify those likes with instagram. Likes those two things. Don't go together for me. it's interesting. I also think it's maybe a little bit more nuanced when you're talking about being liked it's about being liked by whom actor meant push the status quo. They're meant to push forward for progress. And i think that they're always using social media to say things that will make you very very unpopular indeed by saying things that make you unpopular. Does that equal to does that. Create like less social engagement. Then that's a great question and sometimes yes sometimes. No we know that having a take that is not always the mainstream take in having a take. That's controversial nothing brings more engagement than controversial post like on twitter. Like nothing is more engagement than like when you have a fight or if you had beef with someone or if you're saying something that's unpopular that makes total sense it's the tweets that are in all caps that get the most retweets exactly and like i recently posted something. That was not died. Got a lot of negative feedback and got two types of negative feedback. That got you know. The fact that i would say was just you know pretty openly anti semitic i posted something about antisemitism on the right and people in the jewish. You're saying that. I only post by anti semitism on the right and i don't push that antisemitism on the left so that was one aspect of the controversy if we want to call it that or the non likeability and the other half is just sort of playing old antisemitism and that post which was not likeable is one was buoyed by most engaged during the election week because it had so many people young at each other on it. I think i've been so interested with social media activism because we see like a separation between words and actions so an organization can post black. Lives matter but you know. How do they treat their staff. Whose black do they have any staff. It's black or any leadership roles and research like that dichotomy and so that also crosses over to you know people in our own community just like private citizens who will postseason social media but like how are they operating in there like day to day lives. I think that it just makes me wonder like i. I say this are people like posting about on social media but thanks stopping there as the only thing that they're doing i mean. I think that there's no denying that that is partially what happens. But also if we're gonna have a nuance palmer reservation about social media and activism than it's important off about. I think there's one. There's activists or community organizers or both using social media as will to spread information and to further advance their causes and then there are also people that are just posting about social justice online profiles. And i think that those are two different things so when organizer hosts and get a bunch of other people to post about there in real life protest. That's very different than a brand or corporation hosting reposting a graphic or an ideology.

Hospitals Puzzled With How To Administer Monoclonal Antibodies To COVID-19 Patients
"Are starting to use new drugs that are designed to keep covert 19 patients out of the hospital. But it's not clear how well these monoclonal antibodies work, and some hospital administrators are wondering how long their staffs will be able to give this time consuming treatment. As emergency rooms and beds fill up. NPR's science correspondent Richard Harris spoke to doctors in New Mexico and Wisconsin as they launched their treatment programs. The Food and Drug Administration has granted emergency authorization to two monoclonal antibody formulations. These drugs are supposed to prevent the Corona virus from invading cells there specifically for people with mild to moderate disease who are not in the hospital. And it's not just a shot or a pill. They have to be given by Ivy infusion, a process that takes two hours or more like everything in today's world during the pandemic, our biggest challenges are around staffing. Dr. Peter Newcomer is chief clinical officer at University of Wisconsin Health in Madison. He says his hospital is giving the drug after hours in an infusion center so infectious covert patients don't cross paths with cancer patients and other vulnerable people. Special plea went out for nurses to take on yet another shift. Even as the hospital struggles with rising Covad cases, the hospital can initially handle eight patients a night. Newcomer says They started with three patients on Tuesday night. Our advertising campaign to the community when I'll come Monday and Tuesday, so we're going to see more tonight and then Philip all over slots. Real soon. If everyone who qualifies for this treatment asks for it, the hospital will quickly run out of drugs. So you w health set up a system to identify people who would most likely benefit primarily people over 65 with underlying health conditions. Will randomly pick from that pool. If there isn't enough drug to go around. It's basically a lottery type system with an allocation that is done as equitably as we can informed consent for this includes telling patients that it's not clear just how well these drugs actually work. The National Institutes of Health put out treatment guidelines, saying there's simply not enough information to know if they are effective. Company studies suggest doctors have to treat 10 to 20 patients to avoid a single hospitalization. Dr. Newcomer wishes he could tell how well the huge investment in staff time will pay off as long as we can continue to provide this treatment. We plan on it. It's gonna have to be an ongoing evaluation of what we can afford to do. From the staffing standpoint, the drugs could help hospitals if they can keep their patient loads down in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Dr. David Gonzalez is keeping a close eye on the capacity of Krista's ST Vincent's Hospital where he's the chief medical officer. We're currently entering crisis levels stage with bed capacity that's throughout the state of New Mexico. His hospital is directing people most likely to benefit from the new treatment to the hospital's emergency room for the infusions. We have a portion of our emergency room that's dedicated to cope in positive patients. Krista Saint Vincent's Hospital infused its first patient Tuesday, using one of the eight initial doses of the drug allocated by the state of New Mexico. After the hour long infusion. Nurses monitor patients for 1 to 6 hours to make sure that there are no serious side effects, and Gonzales says that monitoring continues once patients leave the hospital were able to follow the patients at home. And, uh, and a pain their vital signs and they can go through a questionnaire in which we ask them if they're experiencing specific symptoms more than 2400 medical facilities nationwide have been allocated some of these drugs. And many are like these in New Mexico in Wisconsin, now starting to figure out how to make it all work. Richard

And there's a lot of poverty and my aunt is the ultimate success story and so my aunt little bit like a Selandia. She came from the backwoods and she took over the world of accounting but still. La Van was backwoods village deep in the heart of Rural Quebec somewhat primitive by today's standards. But. Thanks to their mother math. There was always plenty of good food to eat. It was not back to the land. It was fully of the land everything was made from scratch and my grandmother was a genius at reusing or recycling things. She made all of their clothes she did all of the cooking. Janine roses parents were well respected in the village but their dad was a world war two vet and he was markedly different in the privacy of his own home. We had problems when we close the door, my dad, my dad would be months without drinking and that was good. But when he was drinking, he was breaking everything in what we never wanted to show people. I graduated and I had money to go to university I was already I was accepted and my father. With his drinking. Was GonNA, lose the truck they need it for his business. So I give him the money and I went to work in. Campbellton. So so in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, seven. They lost the House that they were being twenty five dollars a month for. And then a year later, my mother said Okay I've had enough with Janina on her own marthe packed up their things and left loud van for good she moved to Ontario She took her youngest daughter Rose with her settling in English speaking Hamilton, and she put rose in a school run by the nuns. Rose was fifteen. Well, I think that was a time of great upheaval because she had been living in Laverne with her whole family and then. She was the youngest. So her elder siblings had grown up and moved out. So she was really abandoned. In Hamilton rose hooked up with a band of hippies and they became her new family. The group left Ontario to go plant trees out and BC then together they all moved all the way across the country finally landing in Pi to homestead. Home studying went hand in hand with the hippie movement, a self sufficient lifestyle of subsistence agriculture making preserves and homemade clothing. By the time rose reached Pi she had two year old I've IANTO and she started a new life on a new farm with her new partner Rub. My parents and their gang of hippies built our house, and they had never built a house before. And it's still stands to this day. So that's good. But there was no delineated kitchen. It was all big one big room with A. Woodstove in the middle and I don't know how my mother did it but she cooked everything on that woodstove. Until we got. Electricity and gas and everything put in and eventually got a real kitchen said. On hold got. A real. Kitchen. Early days we had no running water or electricity. So I watched sesame street on a black and white TV that was hooked up to a tractor battery. In many ways, obvious moms hasn't P.. I was a lot like grandma mouths house in Love Van, the familiar woodstove similar kitchen vegetable garden. We had a garden it was enormous. So we ate very well, we had a pump in the front yard for water and a creek down the health. Nuts just recounting. This is crazy. It was pretty little house on the prairie and there was sort of this barter system MPA. I said would trade the hey on the land to get a side of beef or I think he would trade weed for things to they were using a lot of would that they just found There are lot of falling down barns around. And they just salvaged scavenged from materials so well before Hipster Restaurant Tours were using reclaimed barn board. My parents had put it in our kitchen. But even though life on the farm was good. The community at large wasn't exactly welcoming Ivy's family carried rob's French-canadian last name it's growing up with that last name was. Not, Fun Print Rhode Island is. One of the most steeler places on earth it has the largest population of Scott's. Scotland and everyone was related and everyone was seventh or eighth generation islander and there was anti French sentiment. But we could have been Latvian or we could have been African and we would have always been labeled the way they label anyone who's not born on. As from away. which is sort of treated as this endearing quality of the islanders, but it's actually it's it's hard core. So there was a gang of hippies on the island, but they weren't accepted. You're surrounded by Catholic, fishermen and farmers. So this counterculture with men with long hair and hotheads. And then there's some French in the mix. It was a recipe for disaster. So what did you put in? Savoring Savory I'll put some more. So pepper. No. CLO-. Don't like clothes. I know. But I thought clove was traditional even though you say there's a different version in every. No my mother Mary ever put clove. No I always knew that we didn't have a Lotta money. We didn't have like things that the other kids had. If there was like I never had a swatch watch which I would have killed for you know a or I don't even know Adidas sneakers or anything So that kind of stuff we didn't have but there were a lot of other kids who didn't have to. I think more. We were other because of the because we're not from. Because of the French because of the Hippie. And you know. We sort of. A little bit off center. Was for what Moncton people? Probably. MONCTON. Montreal.

And so. I the checking girl therefore for his productions, and they'd never seen a girl like me because I totally went overboard as I promised him. I would I instead of checking people learn with pen and paper expected I was creating whole excel sheets and databases and researching everything appoint on every single person. And as I told him, we'll take the most mundane tasks, and I would I would kill it. I promised. So I did as the check in girl, I checked people in over tech people. And and as a result, it started creating so much momentum for the show that after a couple of weeks, rob came to me and said actually instead of being our checking girl, why don't you become our general manager for the show? And so that's how I became a general manager on Broadway. And so, and that's how I later then became Rob's protege. And as I started working with him more and more than. One day. He turned to me and said, actually, I wanna introduce suit to my cousin as well. Stephen. And I was like great. I would love to meet Stephen even though I didn't know what even did that when I met with Stephen a turned out. He was an incredible thought leader in the music industry. He had the scuppered lady Gaga he had managed Britney Spears. He was writing endless articles on how music was going to be disrupted in terms of distribution. Because around this time Spotify was coming up and all these music distribution services. So I came to him and said anything in everything I want to learn just give me the most mundane task. I can't wait to learn a health in any possible. And he said while I heard that you have worked at your school newspaper, and I might emus articles. So you must be a good editor. And I was like. Yeah. Even though obviously I just been on the business side. I didn't know how to add it that. I mentioned this you because and made them teach you how to reach out to your models and get them to respond to you one hundred percent of the time. But what you're find is that is that all these VIP's always had these side projects he's personal things are working on that you can help with and that they'll be grateful for and therefore one they will you to become their protege. And that's what happened with Steven. He sent me his articles that he was working on autographed article. And I didn't know what the heck I was doing. So that night, I story number soon as he sent the first article that night on removing every word and putting a new words and not knowing what to do. And I just tried to like show every sentence by doing something to each sentence. I remember that was like my metric criteria. But somehow I ended up sending it back to him. And he ended up liking it. And he was like, yeah. You did a good job editing. So then he gets on sending me more. And more and more. And then all of a sudden he sending started sending me his projects and his ventures and everything he was working on. And that's how I became evens protege. And then later on he said now, why don't I introduce you to my best friend, and who is the president of BBC. And that's when I then went to go work for an who actually now serves on our board at mogul. And that's when I ended up becoming ends protege.

But then I realized obviously when you wanna thriving business you don't just want to cut costs. You also have to ramp up revenue. So that's a suggest what was probably my worst nightmare at the time. No kidding. Which was that? We should absolutely will up our sleeves ourselves and go selling door to door to door. So meaning the shy girl that interpret literally after that suggestion fold up my sleeves and went selling door to door trying to convince every single association every agency recumbent trying to recruit on campus. Even local restaurants are please advertise in our newspaper, please. And I remember that around this time there is a new restaurants on campus your street new too. House and had just opened up, and I thought to myself meeting, I should try that place because they just opened and actually we could really help them. And so I showed up and the manager so Raya came out, and she was so kind and warm, and and I asked her that her could she flees advertise in the newspaper. I actually really think it could be helpful. And and then she said, yes. And I was like, yes. And she said, yeah, absolutely took an and I was so grateful overjoyed. And then I was like this should cool it because she'll realize things wrong. And then she advertise, and when she did I told her I was going to eat there every single day. I was going to bring all my friends there. I promise I'll eat there all the time. And then I did a gain to sophomore fifteen then I ate there all the time about all my friends there, and then her business took off and then because her business to coffee on advertising more and more in the newspaper, and then took off and we went from bankruptcy to record profitability and six months. So that was my first example for myself that I could be like, my grandmother that I could be entre preneurs and just with my little step forward towards an opportunity that didn't look so perfect. It could even that side alley become the right path for me head. So when this time thinking, again, more more like I could be like, my grandmother. I van watched another movie and this time it was legally blonde as anyone. And then the movie she goes off to grad school Elwood's, the main character, and I didn't have the funds to go and visit Grech school.

I applied to Harvard to actually the business school and not the law school, but they let me and and and then it so therefore I ended up becoming one of their youngest students. I ended up becoming one of the students to the point where by when I looked around the class everyone different than me. And I barely wanted to speak up. So he didn't.

"Third fighter to be here. It really is a special moment because more goal was actually back in two thousand fourteen the winner of the two thousand fourteen Ivy award at that year IBM evader award, and that kind of kickstarted all the momentum to become what we are today. So really is so special to be here with you all and I'm excited to be able to share with you the journey since all the lessons, I learned along the way, but most importantly than the stakes made many many mistakes made my hope the end of our session together is that you get to apply all the lessons that I learned all the mistakes I made to yourselves right away. So that you can accelerate yourself personally, professionally become moguls right away today. So my story actually begins initially with family with family. That inspired me to wanna become a mogul. My great uncle running equivalent of the economists in Vietnam. My father was also inspiration to me in France, where he was wonderful adviser in tech and media that actually my biggest role model in life was actually my grandmother because my grandmother was amazing to me. She was this maverick who ran newspapers across Asia, providing others in need with information. She was one of the first woman actually, the first window drive a car in Saigon in Vietnam. And I wanted to be exactly like her growing up. Can you imagine what of maverick? She was a mogul to me. So I grew up actually because of the war abroad, I grew up in Paris. France, initially grew up there had a very Delic childhood. And then my parents started watching black and white movies over and over again. So they were falling in love with Marilyn Monroe films after Hepburn films and docking right Films phone. that made them realize that America was so incredible. And they hope for opportunities for us, my siblings, and knee and hope that perhaps I moving there. We could have more education opportunities anyway. So at ten out of nowhere. I moved from Paris France to plano, Texas. And when I was there who here has been to plano, Texas. Oh, a couple of aunts wall. Yes, we went to the same high school. So. Senior high and ultimately had just a very obviously different life thereafter from Paris, France. But I loved it Friday v fall pick trucks and fighting. Well, it's I mean, just incredible.

"And I think it's less than a decade before we shift as a species in terms of how we measure in success. So we've got a few minutes left look to wrap up before we do. It's been incredible hearing all the different frameworks to share on such passionate enthusiasm. You have. I wanna wrap up asking you to cover just two things. One is how can the community support you? Right. Really feels like you've got so many things figured out. And you know, what you're what you're going for? But what does everybody here, and everyone will be watching this later can do to support you and your endeavors, that's one? And then I'd love for you to wrap up with a call to action to this audience here. What would be a call to action to everybody here to live a better life makeup, bigger unpack? Well, I think the unique thing about this IB community is that you guys out primarily Americans. Right. And I think America's a really important part in the world today, but it's not fulfilling that role. It's shunning the United Nations it is denying climate change. It is it's the world leader in two thousand one in Malaysia. I wrote an article for the newspapers because in two thousand one it was a slightly anti-american time story. This was like two thousand three it was a slightly anti America time because the Gulf war had started. And I was pro America. And I wrote an article that essentially set this why why Muslim countries need to embrace Americanism and not RBIs Arabism of Arab Arabization something like that. And I said look America's the only country in the world that embraces the world. It doesn't bully the world. It doesn't it doesn't enforce its culture it embraces the world it lets its culture jump around. And it lets the best ideas. Take hold look at Hawaii America invaded Hawaii. But it didn't strangle off Hawaiian culture it made Hawaiian culture global today. Everybody knows the word luau, they know about cooler dances. Right. America's this amazing country that straddles the world because it embraces the world, and I sit that. We all need to be more like America. I can't say that today because America's the country that's denying global climate change if the country that is building border waltz. And so if I could ask one thing for the IB community, it's get out there and vote, and please give us the America that we want because I used to remember the days in Malaysia when fourth of July like we would as Malaysians even with no Americans have route. Would celebrate for July parties. And now, we don't so I wanna see America rise up again. And that America is a nationalistic America, it's America. That's will Centric, we need you guys. Thank you. And how can we support your on your journey? Tell people about my book if you like this. No. But we'll send the link to the book myself, we're gonna have the bar reopen. There's incredible people in this room. So I hope you'll get to connect vision will stick around for drinker too. Cannot. Thank you. Thank you so much for something by thank you.

"Now is we have this species? We moved to a different level of understanding our belonging, and that's called ethnocentrism at no central some means. Yes, you're kind. Yes. You are. Yes, you're awesome. But mostly people of your own, ethnicity color, language, religion, or national identity. So when you see people who are who are talking about building, a border wall the opening from an ethnocentric existence when you see Brits voting for Brexit. That's at no central. No one is saying it's wrong, human development theorists estimate that seventy percent of the world today is at center. Trick which means that they've simply been trained to see the compassion as their nationality or religion or culture at center is right in places like China and Russia in America though, there's a new emergence. And I guess this is because of America's diversity it's called world centrism. So the overall global population is thirty percent world Centric now, we'll central means. Yes. I love my culture. But I appreciate other cultures. I appreciate other languages. I appreciate other religions, so we'll transcend is is a is a slightly more. Emerging idea. It's it's becoming very dominant in Canada and the United States because so many cultures come together. Right. But if you look, for example, even in America, I don't see a left right left right divide. I see a Wilson ethnocentrism Dubai. It's not left. All right. Because if you look at left or right. It's no longer the classical like economic policies and stuff it's really at no central or world centrism Trump stands for Aetna. Centrism Obama stand for Wilson. Now, if you're Aetna Centric, you'll see well Centric and think they are silly. You will say Obama giving a greeting to Russians during the Persian new year scandalous. How dare he gives a greeting to Iranians who wanna blow us up. But if you're will Centric, you look at Trump's border wall. And you think that's ridiculous. Why aren't we helping a country that's less privileged than ours? So again, depending on where you are it has to do with your worldview now the world is. More towards centrism, but there's a level above it. And that level is called Cosmo centrism cost central economic development Orissa just that your level of compassion extend beyond the human race to the entire cost MOS, which means even alien spaceship landed and car gap, God enough the galaxy got out and he was slimy tentacles emerging from his mouth, you would still go and give him a hug 'cause hey he sent it. That's cost more central right? So religion keeps people rooted at Aetna. Centrism think about the world religions we are the chosen people Islam is the one part to God Jesus is the son of God. Right. Religion keeps people at the Aetna Centric level. But if you look at the great religious leaders are beyond that the pope washed the feet of Muslims Gandhi said, I'm a Hindu. But I'm also a Muslim, and I'm a Jew, and I'm a Catholic the great religious leaders have gone beyond religion, the people keep it down. So I love the fact I loved the current pope. He's actually world Centric. Right. He's gone beyond. Just Christianity the world needs to move upwards towards centralism, and spirituality is a way to get us there..

So after like, several months of going through this one after like, maybe one particular day when the twenty-seven person that told me the fuck off at I'm thinking to myself, what the hell is happening to my life. And my parents my dad, I'm too embarrassed to tell them what what my life is like. I decided needed a shift. So I get on Google Google was an early search engine back then and I search for hope, right? I type in something like why does life sucks so bad? Google helped me and I find this class on meditation. So apply to Elliott, take this meditation. I come back and this shift at me personally when I showed up to the class. I was the only person who showed up meditation wasn't cool back then. So as the only person show up really sorry for the instructor. But I learn these things in this class in one of the things I learned is to access altered states to tap into intuition. So I go back and one of the things that I learned in this classes that you can access to state in into intuitive ideas, which are beyond your fight census. So again, I have the yellow pages. But now Reverend blindly call every lawyer from eighty Z I wouldn't meditate in the office run. My thing this down the pages and then feel an impulse on. What names I needed to call? And then I would call those names just doing that alone. Double my closing rate. Now, the thing is I'm a engineer left brain right sales. Very empirical. It's very. Data driven. You know, the number of calls you have to make to get the number of reception receptionist. We're going to answer the calls the ratio of whom are going to pass it to the lawyer the ratio of whom are going to say, yes, I want you to send me a brochure the ratio of whom are going to close it's all data. And so I could track this data doing nothing else. I double my closing rate in one week. So I thought this is really cool. Let me go deeper. So the next thing I studied was created visualization would visualize myself closing lawyers again, double then, I then I I learned empathy meditation, which is where you meditate, and you set an intention, you see the person in front of you, and you mentally tell yourself you send them compassionate love to Buddhist meditation, and you tell them, and you set an intention that whatever is best for everyone will occur and again, I double my sales. So next thing. I know it's been four months. Been promoted three times I made record sales and my boss ships me out to New York to run an office here.

And now, I'm running this company New York, but I'm not telling anyone that I'm able to ace what I do because I'm secretly using meditation to access altered states. Finally, my boss is telling me like what the fuck is going on. How are you doing so? Well, and I tell them I think it's called. ESP? And he's like now that's bullshit. It doesn't exist. But whatever you're doing keep doing so acing my job. I find out that that the values of my company, the company has no value. It's all about sales. It wasn't about customer satisfaction attorneys for complaining about the software. So I quit. And I decided that I'm going to quit. And I want to do something meaningful.

And the first thing I did is I joined a nonprofit call I sack ASEC. Now Izhak was a nonprofit started after World War Two to unify the world to prevent future wars. So what they do is they would take German kids like nineteen. This is nine hundred forty five post post World, War Two and French kids, and they would exchange them. These college would exchange them between countries. The French pitch would get jobs at German companies, and they would be funded by German kids who would introduce them to German culture. Likewise with the French now it expanded and soon ice expresed all across the world to eighty nine countries, including the United States, right? So I sat was a nonprofit dedicated to quitting world peace. True cross cultural understanding, so I came to New York to work for a sec being non-profit pay with. Shit. I had to share an apartment in like on seven and twenty third street grimy little apartment, but I loved what I did because I was contributing to world peace. We will take American kids graduating from NYU baroque, get them jobs in the Middle East where they would learn and be exposed to Middle Eastern culture. We would take kids from the Middle East or Taiwan or Malaysia get them jobs in the United States where they would learn about American culture, and the ideas that these people would grow up to be global leaders who stood for unity. So I had an amazing track. Record Lum night included the presidents and prime ministers of Japan Columbia Portugal. Monte sorry who won the Nobel prize helmet Kohl who created the European Union. We will genuinely creating world leaders, but very unique type of world leader world leaders who stood for unity in other words. They stood for. Yes. Making your country. Great. But ultimately seeing yourself as part of the largest species. Planet up human beings, the global world and not blind nationalism. So that was what installed this belief in me and unity became one of my core values now that was tested because after living in in in the United States spur about nine years. All of a sudden, I was in New York, I was arriving at JFK and the guy at the passbook desk called me out and said, I'm sorry. I can't let you in. We need to take you to a room, and we need to investigate you further. And so I get pulled to this room. And I find out that I've been added to a Muslim watchlist. Now, I'm not a Muslim I happen to be Brown. I sometimes don't shave, but I'm not a Muslim nausea that even matter. What the fuck I decided to believe right for the record. I I'm I'm non religious I believe in God. But I believe religion is a corruption of how God designed the world. So I don't have any beliefs associated with religion. I really embraced the best of all religions, but I was put in the Muslim watchlist along with eighty one thousand other men from who were born in most countries. This was two thousand three I don't blame anyone September eleven had just occurred. And you know, this was around two years after September eleven America had to take head to take security measures. But all of a sudden, I could not live in America. My wife is European. We wanted that child. Born in New York we wanted to raise occupies in American..

"So I was kind of in trouble because Glenn Close had already been in the studio recorded it. So I said to him I said look wouldn't and signs which should be happy to have Glenn Close. Reading her words on a recording. And I sent them that recording. And they came back to maintenace what send us for fifty dollars. And you can do what you what I I was actually really lucky with the rights issues getting people into the studio was tough because we have these amazing people with his mazing schedules. All busy politicians actors. Writers producers people like that who are all over the world. So that took that's one of the reasons why this record took songs to get everybody in the studio and do that Glenn Close is a friend. I actually met her. I threw jasmine concentre a project probably ten years ago. We the call of let freedom swing. It was a really nice concert dealing similarly with the idea of of freedom, and she was one of the speakers. So we've been in touch just up been roused. She's come to gigs stuff, and she's really really cool. And the reason why I know Sam Waterston is through Glen now when. When the presidential suite premiered here jazz concentre in two thousand fourteen. Wendell when the peers was scheduled to be the reader, go read all the exerts one actor, and he got really sick and canceled the last minute. So I talked to Glenn. She said call Sam see if Sam would come into it and Samling arm so sorry, but I'm tied up on fine. I could I could do Saturday, but I can't do Friday. I said nuts. We're going to need to have something to do both both lights which we did. We got Charles Dutton the actor to do it. But Sam I said we want to come to the Saturday concert com. So he brought his wife his kid came backstage. And so we started a friendship in. He did the he read the LBJ speech in just soap beautiful, most of the other guests that were part of this project came through career, my producer. Kabeer is someone who's very involved with different aspects of financial political fields and Douglas Brinkley's somebody. He's worked with Doug. Doug Brinkley ended up you You know, know, what what I mean? means a CNN correspondent he's written twenty or so books. He wrote the Reagan diaries authorized book on Reagan. So he came in red the Reagan speech, which was fantastic also wrote the liner notes with Kabeer, which are remarkable. So it just amazing when people want to be part of something that makes you feel like what you're doing is timely. It's important and having them come in and put their soul into these short minute half. Little little excerpts made me feel stronger about this project headed just been the music. So I'm really really grateful blessed to have had them come in. And what was your experience comparing it to portrait and seven shades with a similar concept with abstracting visual artist. And their work in musical form you draw on and he learned from that process in doing this similarities differences. What I learned from portrait and seven shades. Was that a project any creative endeavor is stronger when you have a theme when you have a concept of theme that you're dealing with. Because it really gives you a through line through the pieces, and I think it helps to engage audience because they know in the case of portrait and seven shades. I chose chose conic painting. So they know these paintings. So they may have a feeling all ready about them, and what they might represent and how they might be expressed musically. So it's a risk one point. But also gave them an opportunity to experience these paintings it a fresh way, I didn't obviously transcribe the paint teams. But I let them fact me in a big way. And it was one of the first times that I was able to actually write music based on some that was really truly a feeling a reaction to something. Whereas before I think my composing was based more on intellectual. Ideas, and harmony and sounds and and just not based on something that really moved me. So I learned from that that a project especially of this sort of nature lyco along our long piece of music needs to have some kind of theme that that helps you to organize. It helps you to be inspired and hopefully inspire other people..

"Well, the extra neighbors. Inauguration basically was nineteen forty seven. When India got its freedom independence from Great Britain. And so it was an important moment. And this took place at midnight because it was the time that the clock went over midnight. That's the time. They suddenly got the freedom. So he made his speech at midnight. So that's right there. There's a creates a certain vibe that I really liked and as an intensity about waiting for that clock to today. And then and then knowing that this country is now free, and there's an intensity a passion in a way that he spoke that I wanted to capture in this music. It's very directed. It's very very intense. And it didn't give me a lot of opportunities in terms of melodic. Sort of flexibility in. Sort of variety because it was so close the pitches were so close with. So the challenge was a take that and create a cordial background for that. Now what I wanted to do is. I was thinking about Indian music neighbor was of course, the prime minister of India and the music of India deals a lot with odd time signatures. So I started with a baseline kind of Austin auto baseline that was in seven do duty drew doodoo duty to do duty dough. And and then I created a vibe using. Woodwinds pianos disorder give this exotic quality because it really felt like an exotic speech today and exotic part of the world, so. Building on top of that took us the Matic material and tried to fit into four bar segments. So if you hear the harmony there's. Melody and disaster motto baseline going on every four bars, it shifts and goes through low tonality so the had to kind of manipulate the thematic material to fit over those different bar segments. I didn't change any knows. That was one of the rules are not gonna change notes on this really wanna make that make that to be authentic. So anyway, that was the basis for it. I chose sopranos and Harmon new trumpets to give again additional exotic quality you listen to the recording of the sopranos immune to trumpets. It has kind of a nasal quality, which he also had his speech. You could listen to the speech back and forth with this recording. You can hear how similar it is. And then there's a open improvisation section which their whole rhythm section kind of opens up, and there's a supreme assault which I played over solo. I played on a rented. And so that was kind of the freedom. It opens up becomes freer a lot of expression feeling so we come out of the tightness of the of the orchestration the tightness of this melodic passages and these middle passages, and then we open up which is. Becomes or indicative of of? And and then there's a secondary statement development of the melody we come back later. And now, we've taken that ridgeville melody expanded it, and I work a straight. And I hardly is it. So it's much bigger statement says the same original statement. Now, it's much bigger version of it. So that's a centrally what I was doing with mayor. And how woman houses like of getting these big name people to record these speeches? Did you did you create you get the speeches? I work the original speeches and was there. What was your relationship in working with these people in the the cadence record enough the gays because there were so many aspects to only recording the speeches and choosing excerpts from the speeches shoe organizing that and having people read that for the recording. The first thing was just getting the rights to the speeches. Well, when I found out, which which was a real benefit is that anything that's anything. That was spoken written by a politician in office is public Doreen. So that gave me seven out of the eight complete freedom to do what I wanted with the speeches the one that I didn't have the freedom was Angsana cheese freedom from fear, which was not up. She didn't speak that or write that during office during her time in office. It was an essay that she wrote in published in some penguin books. So I had to deal with them directly to get. They actually do not allow me to do it at first I said, no, you can't break up the essay and make an exempt out of it..

"Jazz musician. Ted Nash, I picked up a clarinet at age twelve and decided in that moment that music would be his passionate and profession fast forward to today and Ted is a Grammy winner at one of the most well known saxophonist composers in the jazz world, he's a member of the jazz limits that our orchestra as work with everyone from Lionel Hampton, Quincy Jones, of course, went to ourselves. He's released twelve personal outlets as well, including presidential suite eight variations of freedom, which also want him Grammy two thousand seventeen I the opportunity to sit down with Ted at a recent Ivy event to learn exactly how growing up in a house consumed with jazz influenced him to find his own way, the music industry. Grew up in a household. To jazz musicians. My father dick Nash who grew up in the late swing era up time and then settled with the studios and my uncle Ted. Nash also swing Arabization with les Brown settled into the studios as well. They were both extremely successful studio musicians. My mother was a jazz singer. And maybe most that all of us she she passed away about eight years ago, and she gave up her career sue raise a family and my father had mazing career. So I was exposed to jazz music, you know, all through my childhood, but also we had my brother was into rock music. And my sister was into pop and different stuff. So I really felt like there was a turning point where I really owned jazz music for myself. I don't think early on I really had any kind of identity for music, and that I just let my family sort are rule the airwaves of the house and. It wasn't until I was about fourteen in one radio in a contest. And I remember bring it home and setting it up, and it was the first time. I said okay now, I can listen to music for me. I remember flipping through the channels, and you know, it'd be like. Going through and find it was like. It was real cool. And I remember that I could just remember the feeling of the musical was swinging a trumpet, I like this enough that station on and so that was sort of time where I felt like I had dented with jazz for the first time in a personal way. When did you decide to musician should be a practitioner? Well. Dettori piano lessons throughout you know. Single in double digit ears age of maybe about thirteen didn't really have a lot of passion for it. It was a great training. But I discovered the clarinet when I was twelve look kid brought it out of his case at a summer camp. Cool because he can't bring a piano, anywhere. You can bring a clarinet Severna pulled out and make music. So I told my dad about it. He ran right down to the store rented one for me. So I took that very seriously for about two or three years thinking that I would be probably a classical clarinet player, but was around this time at fourteen when I discovered Charlie Parker and sign Rawlins Coltrane miles Davis etcetera. And then I began to study with a great teacher, Charlie shoemaker. And it was some point in the middle of those studies that I I really understood no what I'm going to do is be a jazz musician, and I never second. Guessed it. I think it's a blessing when you know, what you want, and you don't think about it twice..

"Leadership life, you need to spend less time with people that you can control and more time with people who can influence your future, but you don't control. And a lot of people don't like that, especially boss's boss's, like to hang out with people, they can control people who work for them, current customers, current suppliers, vendors, things like that. Okay. And I'll like to hang out with people might have huge influence over them. But they can't control. Okay.

Oh, no, I really rely on the finance folks in Omaha at company headquarters. I don't know anybody in Omaha, right. Well, this is a good time to start preparing for those things, your leadership life.
