Biden, in Pennsylvania, Details Massive Infrastructure Spending Plan
"President biden speaking in pittsburgh laying out his massive infrastructure spending plan also laying out his plan to pay for it which would include tax increases on the wealthy as well as corporate america. Let's get straight to elon moreh with all the details. Ilan melissa the president. They're trying to strike an inspirational tone calling on the country to consider the possibility of american innovation but also underscoring the fact that what he's calling a once in a generation investment in infrastructure is also fiscally responsible a few new details that he shared during that speech included that raising the corporate tax rate to twenty eight percent would raise a trillion dollars over the span of fifteen years. He also said that establishing that global minimum tax on foreign income that would raise another trillion dollars and he went beyond what the white house had said previously. Which is that The two trillion dollars in infrastructure spending would be paid for over fifteen years. He said that it would be more than paid for over that period of time that they could even raise more revenue to make up for that amount of spending that historic amount of spending. Because he said that this is going to be not just about Paying for infrastructure. But also about making america more competitive. So you're starting to hear the argument. That democrats are going to make a against republicans and against some business groups that say that raising taxes on businesses would actually make american companies less competitive particularly overseas. What the democrats are saying. We're president biden laid out today. Is that by creating jobs and creating new opportunities for investment. That is actually going to Improve american competitiveness and create a path forward for stronger economy will see melissa how that ends up playing with republicans particularly on capitol hill who are already signaling that they are not going to vote to unwind some of the tax cuts that they put into place just four years ago but here the president calling for unity calling from bipartisanship on an issue on which republicans democrats have agreed in the past

The Hitler Haggadah with Jonnie Schnytzer
"Joined today by johnny schnitzer to talk about the hitler. Haga a nineteen forty-three judeo arabic haggadah. Which tells the story of the holocaust the second world war and the allied landing in north africa through the passover seder. Johnny schnitzer is a phd candidate at bar. Ilan university with a focus on medieval kabbalah. His dissertation is focused on the fourteenth century. Kabul list rabbi. Joseph ben shallow ashkenazi and johnny is also preparing a critical edition of ashkenazis. Commentary on sefer itsy raw. Johnny also edited an english edition of the etc. Which we're going to be talking about today. The hitler etc is such a fascinating text in many ways even just the title is jarring. And you might think how can you use. Hitler's name in the title of this traditional jewish text and it draws you in to a tremendous piece of moroccan jewish history that reworked the traditional passover story to tell us about the experience of north african jews in the holocaust. I hope you enjoyed our conversation. Where we're going to dive into this text and think about how it can broaden our understanding of the holocaust to include the middle east and north africa in that story and also where we think through the important relationship between jewish roots and holidays with history and historical memory. Thanks for tuning in high johnny. Welcome to the podcast. Thanks so much for joining us to talk about your book that you added. Thank you for inviting me. Lovely to be here. Absolute think this is such a fascinating text. Can you maybe tell us a little bit about it in other words like what is it that makes this different from all other hug adults. I think there are sort of two bombs that this text drops upon any re- debt guest that sort of feast there is on the hit laga and the first one of course is the title and this is what got me interested in this from the outset and that is this sort of sporadic this who has the chutzpah to do this at taking a jewish texts calling it the hit laga. That's the sort of bomb number one. Because you're not even sure what this is about. Who wrote this. But you know one thing you know that the author who is anonymous and we'll touch upon them in a moment takes to keywords. That every juneau's today every jew does not need to google almost haggadah writer passover passover eve where we read the haggadah we all come and we eat together and he takes haggadah and he connects to the other. Keyword that we all know about for a very separate horrific connotation. That's hitler and he puts it together. The first bomb is who has the chutzpah to perpetrate a text. And give it the title. Hit laga taking one of the most sacred texts and connecting it to one of the biggest mom's area if you like in jewish history and then you open the text and you realize that author has done something absolutely fascinating he is done with. The sages have asked us to do generation after generation and that is to see ourselves as if we left egypt red. It's to reenact. Redemptions to reenact. God saving the jewish people taking us out. And what does he do. He takes the structure of the storytelling bit of the haggadah. Right on passover. Eve we have the ceremony we have the blessings and then we reached the mortgage section the mugged section to section where we meant to mcgee. We meant to tell the story. That's what is about right. We tell story we tell the story of redemption. This also explains why passovers become right. This trend of everyone bringing own hug dot. Everyone bringing their own stories. Because it's all about bringing together different pieces of the puzzle. Creating this beautifully rich mosaic. So he takes the traditional structure of the haggadah which tells us about how we were taken out of egypt and it tells us about these different characters. Rabbinic figures leaving two thousand years ago. The told us to do this and told us to do that. And he takes out the content and fills it with a new content whereby he tells the story of the holocaust of world war two of the allied victory of the ex pows over nazi germany. And hitler and mussolini's italy he tells us the story of his generation rights yossi who has something to tell us in the traditional said. There's something about how. How would you meant to do something. All of a sudden becomes the speech of the dictator iosif stalin when we told them the haggadah that i god and not an angel. Not anyone else is going to take you. The jewish people out of egypt suddenly becomes. I shall the goal. I not level not the right none of none of the other vichy high commanding general's. I shall the goal which already tells us right. This is what's fascinating in the hitler etc and this is the second bomb if the first bomb is the title. We still don't know what it's about. The second bomb is when you discover that this was written by an anonymous jew living in robots morocco probably towards the end of nineteen forty-three as a result possibly inspired by operation torch. The allied operation led by the us on the shores of casablanca and algiers. And everything changes all of a sudden this jew living in morocco. Who's lived under a regime whether anti jewish laws jews around him have lost their jobs. Jews around you can't get a jewish education you become by night a second-grade citizen and so out author. It almost seems as if he's taking a text which it's time to write it when we don't yet know the ending. He doesn't yet know about the horrific six million who are being murdered. He doesn't know about concentration camps in poland. But he knows he wants to do something horrific any also is living in a time where his life has changed for some years and as a result of the allied victory he suddenly possibly is inspired and sees. I get the exodus. The story i meant to be telling i meant to take the passover haggadah until the story that i see and that's how the allies beat the excess power. And how in fact you know retelling the story of exodus mine new-fangled version. I think that the text itself is amazing in the ways in which it on. The one hand utilizes the story of passover very explicitly very specifically in when he talks. About how hitler. Enslaved the jews but also like you mentioned the way in which some of the characteristic aspects of the traditional aspects are transfigured and transformed new. Whether we're talking about the parable of the four sons the for children or the different rabbis plagues. What are some of the really interesting things that are happening in this text that really are utilizing the passover story itself and also the the characteristic aspects of the passover seder that people who read attritional seder would be familiar with but they give it new meaning in this context. If we take right this this idea of the four sons four daughters any jewish figure that we look at it and we want to understand. What is it the sort of a heart of their teachings you know. One of the tricks is to see if they wrote a commentary on the haggadah. What do they do with these. Four boys of for doors. What do they symbolize. And in the case of the hit da it takes us back in time to a sort of moroccan viewpoint of the the north african campaign. And so who is the wise son now. You know it's going to be an allied power. But you're not sure that england or is it america and you'll told the the wise son is england right. The royal air force acts cleverly. He's clearly impressed he he is probably the razzie stance radio. He knows about the bombings. He knows about montgomery and then we move onto the russia. The russia we know can only be one person. That's clearly hitler. Hitler the evil one. He knows that he's a know he. He's torturing the jewish people and yet it's interesting that if you read through the at that we're not quite sure what's going on in europe right off a thinks that there is a concentration camp in berlin so we're not yet show what's going on in the world and our author doesn't yet. Nobody knows that he clearly is evil that he's plotting against the jews there wearing yellow badges which also is interesting. Because we're not sure. If he's referring to the yellow badges of jews in europe or the yellow badges of jews in certain places in north africa and then who is the tam. The time is interesting. Because tom can both mean in hebrew complete simpleton the thomas america and then shane no. You're dillashaw and who doesn't know how to ask questions. The classic version says the fourth son is the son who doesn't know how to ask questions. The newfangled version is and mussalini. Who isn't with the avowed woods and this is very interesting because when i was speaking to holocaust survivors. Oh you know this. Sort of all degeneration and i spoke to people from algeria from tunisia morocco across the board there was a nickname from cellini mar. He was the donkey he was the s. This resonates with this passage whims lead author decides to change it. And say it's not. He doesn't ask question it's that we don't even wanna talk about
Karpathy Talks Deep Learning, Elon Musk, FSD Beta, & Waymo Competition
"Our here and today we're going to be mostly talking about some takeaways from a recent interview of tesla's director of artificial intelligence. Enrique are happy on a podcast called the robot brains podcast which i willing to in the show notes. The whole conversation is about an hour and five minutes. I would highly recommend listening to all of it. I thought it was very approachable. And hopefully it helps set the stage for a conversation. We're going to have later this week. Quick look at the stock tesla today finished down one point two percent to six hundred and sixty two dollars sixteen cents not a bad day overall. Considering the nasdaq itself finished down. One point one percent are going into the carpet. The interview again great interview. I think it's super interesting in terms of timing right now because this is so current tesla's obviously working on the fasd beta right now. Andre did share some thoughts on that which we will get to you. I do wanna give a little bit of background though for people that aren't familiar with andres background so he has a history and education research again. A lot of notoriety in the field of artificial intelligence and specifically in deep learning. Because of his course at stanford about deep learning which was really the first of its kind and those lectures were also shared on youtube. Gained a ton of traction. There so andre was teaching that class at stanford got his phd. There after that he joined open. A i search scientist spent a couple of years there but at that point in his life he had been doing research for about a decade reading papers writing papers so he talks about that period of time in this interview and joining tesla saying quote. I was definitely getting a little bit restless. At that time i felt like these algorithms are extremely and can really move the needle on some very incredibly important problems in society. I wanted to take a more active role in doing that. So i was getting a bit restless. I was looking at different opportunities and say startups and things like that and then one thing that kind of happened on the side is because open at the time under the umbrella of ulan organizations few times we were interacting with people at tesla and i was kind of consulting a little. Bit for some of the problems and autopilot. I kind of realized that they were dealing with fundamentally a deep learning computer vision and this was the fundamental constraint to whether or not this product were work so i was kind of intrigued by that but it was just a few consulting opportunities here and there. I sorta spoke to the team. But at this time when i was getting really wrestles to apply this technology in the industry actually ilan reached out and asked me. Hey you've been sort of consulting for the team. Do you actually want to join and lead the computer vision team here and help get this car to drive. And so he taught me a very kind of correct time. When i was really getting restless and i feel like this is perfect and i think i can do this. I think i have the skill to contribute here. This is an incredibly impactful opportunity. And i love the company and of course i love yuan and everything that he's doing and so i would say that again was a moment stars align for me and i felt very strongly that this is the right thing to do at this time and quote so long quote there but i appreciated having that background. I've always kind of wondered if andres heart was really in the research realm and if you lon had kind of convinced him and pulled him away from that but that doesn't sound like the case from how hundred describes. He said that at that time when he made that decision to go to tesla he and his colleagues at opening i had joked around that he'd probably only make it about six months. And here we are four years later. I'm really happy about that. Because i think under just a perfect fit for this role. Not only does he have an incredible understanding of the technical challenges that tesla's facing but he also seems to have the right personality for it. He talked about working with yuan. Then also get into some of the technical stuff here in a second but he said quote. He's a double edged sword in terms of working with him because he wants the future yesterday and he will push people and he will inject a lot of energy and he wants to happen quickly. And you have to be of a certain. I think attitude to really tolerate that over long periods of time. But he's around some self with people who get energy out of that and also on the future to happen quicker. Those people really thrive at tesla. And so i happen to. Also i think be like that and so i don't personally mind it. I actually thrive on it and the energy of getting this to work faster and quote. I think this anecdote probably serves as a good reminder. That high turnover isn't necessarily a bad thing just by default you'll often see articles without a lot of data honestly being critical of tesla for having high turnover especially in management. But from the outside. It seems like they go through these cycles where they have a lot of turnover in short periods of time and then they find the person that's right for the role and also vice versa that the role is right for them and seems like those people tend to stick for a long long time better to have high turnover work through a number of different people and find the right person than to stick with the wrong person for too long anyway. The other salient point. That andre made about you on came about from a discussion on tussles hardware in the vertical integration. Andre said quote. I think to a large extent yulon sees ai as just a fundamental pillar of a lot of this technology and wants to invest in internal teams that develop a lot of this technology and co design. Everything tesla is definitely about vertical integration and squeezing a lot of juice from the benefits of that and quote. He continued on with that line of thought and mentioned co design. Three or four times. I think which is really one of the most important and special elements of tesla. This co design idea particularly how the organization is structured around that idea. Tesla's purpose built hardware chips for full self. Driving is obviously a great example of that structural batteries a great example of that before that you had super bottle than the octo valve the list just goes on and on and overtime continues to grow so pay very very close attention to that when andre says that you on sees a i as a fundamental pillar of a lot of their technologies we're still in the very early innings of that actually showing up in tesla's business are at so getting into some of his more technical comments than this is going to be a really long quote. I apologize for that. But i think it's a good primer. So he was asked. How would you describe deep learning to your parents. Andre says quote. Let's use a specific example. Because i think it's useful so let's talk about image recognition we have images images are made up to a computer of a large number of pixels and each pixel just tells you the brightness of the red green and blue channel at that point
The Content Glut With Adam Lederer
"Hey how's it going champion sharks With us against adam lederer. I pronounced your name correctly on his a a great Quick question is it like a french name or not no. I think it wasn't french company. Visited but i'm just from like standard eastern european jewish sucked so any that like smelly soups. That's run from okay. Okay cool cool. So yeah if you don't mind telling the people who you are and where to confined you ran on what you do. Yeah so i am a writer and a producer and pearly ready for a show on netflix. Do animated show. That should come out and the day it goes up but will come out at some point in the future and You can find me at my name. Add with an underscore at the end of it out on twitter. And i think it's just an clubhouse nuts where at t and i met i don't know i can t either one you know i'm fine. I'm just that's that's okay Funny you weren't a few people who actually does Productive rooms on in constructive rooms on clubhouse. I make you've been there longer than the signal to noise. Ratio is pretty awful on there now like it wasn't that rare to find a constructive room when i first got on clubhouse so it wasn't that hard to Make your acquaintance. Plus we both know our gabriella. Who's a a friend of the show and that's how we met but nowadays it's the signals noise ratio is is awful but it's There's discussions on there. I feel like. I'm down on a lot and i wanna make people think you know. It's the total hellhole. But no it's not. There's still a lot of good discussion on there and stuff. But there's a of ilan though like i was gonna say i wonder like why did you get on it. Like what airline. What now late november. I sort of wonder this is like the natural progression social media in real time which is like sort of a curve where breaking mortgage zafy relate the online barkley. He will find it business coaches and so we just sort of hit that exact moment like it's weird seeing were now like this sort of late stage tech two point now where we we know how these social media companies actually function so. I think you're right. There definitely are still interesting people. But i wonder if like either one of the later than did it would just be immediately sort of disenchanted with a you know. Kinda weird is that i finished. The life cycle of what's happening with clubhouses very predictable. Every social media app has a saturation point. But this is the fastest. I ever seen it like. I feel like. I saw years worth decline in two months like like twitter. Had a good like two years of being pretty fun before you realize okay. This is getting kind of toxic. And i mean it's a slightly different crowd. I think ruined twitter. I feel that it's the it's the league in my blind right. Yeah exactly someone lengthen meets. I forgot how somebody put it but someone put it really well. The worst parts of twitter meets the worst parts of lincoln. was a brit. Great way to put it and then there was a third ingredient. It'll it'll come it'll come to me. It was one of those like conferences. Gallows or one of those things. Bigly remember something along those life. Ted talks this differently. This definitely. a big Ted talks ted talks by by two. It there's definitely a big tech. Ted talks vibe to it The worst parts of twitter part. I think is coming because a lot of the a lot of the Social justice types now have have kind of discovered it kind discovered it as well which doesn't which doesn't help because they're having a lot of triggering and trauma and violence conversations on there and kind of Bullying people and everything in. That part's kind of kind of nasty too. But you still have. Good rooms in there You had recently. Oh i appreciate that. 'cause i was worried even a good rooms we start getting overrun by the bad people but i think yours are so smart that they just naturally filter pop into your room. Sometimes that people are. I know trolley and then this kind of leave stink. There's nothing pretty distinct. Two teeth in to as far as drama like very drama. Free smart rooms. Yeah not very messy. I guess also. I think part of it is like you were talking about the like sort of matter. Rooms pop up direct comments on other rooms here. And i feel like it's almost like this falls red pill blue pill thing that happens. You don't actually have to gauge. That stuff is just like people think that there's this binary choice if you don't sort of like the red meat or you don't name room something that is like specifically supposed to be provocative it generally doesn't attract those people anyway and as like you know the one thing i says going forward is opposed to twitter is like i think audio Voice sort of lends a certain level of nuance. And you can. You can have opinion taken. You information that change your opinion of all the real time with taxes life. It's almost like tattoos on the internet. And you don't have the ability. You have to trickle down because you can't admit defeat in that same way.

Haggling in the senate over the weekend. Democratic senator joe manchin held up this process for nearly twelve hours as he pushed scale back that boost and jobless benefits the amount will now be three hundred dollars a week instead of four hundred dollars but the last one week longer ending on september the six in addition the first ten thousand two hundred dollars in benefits will be tax free for households. Earning less than one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year. Now in the end democrats did hold the line. Pass the bill saturday afternoon. Republicans they also stuck together with every gop. Senator voting against it at the white house later. President biden acknowledged that the politics weren't always pretty but he said the relief was urgently needed.

The president does have to sign it but right and said over the weekend that he expects the checks to be able to go out sometime later on this month what we saw in december once the last relief package was passed was that it took about a week for those first. Texas are hitting bank account so that seems like a realistic timeframe. it could take a little bit longer. If you're actually receiving a check in the mail though
Integrating ANY bot from ANY framework into ANY contact centre with Ilan Avner, AudioCodes
"Excited to get into this discussion. We've been talking we've had discussions over the last number of weeks around. I connect an audio 'cause and and the things that you're doing in the conversation is based on the things that you are able in for for companies and builders and the likes or definitely excited to kind of get into it and if you're just tuning in we're gonna be talking today about how to connect essentially any bought really from any framework or service into any contact and pretty much and so definitely excited to get into before we do join a give us a bit of a bit of a an update on. Tell us about yourself. And and what is it you do. And what is the audio quotes does okay so thanks for inviting me. Miami is one of narrow I'm a direct thorough management with the codes. I work with the courts or more than one years. Most of them In the in the last three years. I started the war. I moved to the product management team. Where i'm now leading that it is related to contact centers wealthy see unified communications funny and the ones right around door discussion through their connecting chatterbox Jena's i'm in israel Close relatives now for those of you. Who don't or not familiar with coats. So article design leading provider for voice. Solutions will we specialize in connecting voice. Networks we are pioneers in the voice over. Ip space with over twenty five years in operations were threatening nasdaq about one billion-dollar the market top of we have closed eight hundred employees presents name more than one hundred countries and the our customers are a mainly service providers thoughts elephants of his providers contact centers unified communication service providers. Very close relationship with microsoft with a we work with zone within nice in contact with genesis via and we also have a lot of large enterprises That are that are the customers so we have a. I can say that sixty six out of the of his viner's and fifty out of the one hundred forty nine. The prices are customers. Nice impressive and and i mean israel right now is seemingly like a hotbed for for voice technology and compensation you at over in israel. It will quiet by funny. Volker acquired by snap audio caused as a whole lot of interesting stuff going on you is and voice wise in israel. Not the minute that's right. We'll have another start on saying israel focusing on boise high focusing on communication. Yeah a lot of it is in israel in this space. Justin audio codes has everyone you speak to. In the context center will tend to know audio codes and so audio costs traditionally must have played quite large role in The kind of context and space as you mentioned what what is it. The it's kind of known foreign and what is it that it's doing now. As far as kind of conversation is concerned conversation ali. i think what doing lots of things conversation. Holly is one of them on. We are a. We're involved on the context standard business with many providers Mentioned before and we are men. Business was connecting. This context centers do Other delicacies are other voice. Networks in the Positionally i suspect what were you doing is the we were. We leveraged Abilities to connect to any contact center. Now let's say maybe explain a little bit about extenders. On so there are the ball vendors condemn fuel genesis via cisco nizing contact amazon. Some of them has the on premise. Deployments i think most of the be blunt or contact centers specifically for large enterprises. Our on premise must now. They're are trying to move everyone to the cloud. It's not happening so fast. There are multiple cloud providers amazon. Connect tweet nizing contact five nine. So there are multiple providers Extent and we are active on on on this weekend on connect. We we we. We have connectivity to all of this contact centers We can connect with these on. This is what we're doing for the last twenty years on activity and we leverage this in order to be able to connect the dots specifically about a chat bots that developed on any ball train work through these contact centers and while i say extent i mean egypt context thurs. I mentioned now one more thing about contact centers. Let's take for example genesis which is allowed contact center provider genesis specifically has multiple and deployment option so architectures or their voice or the on accents or they have on premise one two types of on premise on the centers and the have one on the cloud. And if you go to a specific customer and you would like to connect your boss to a nebo at connected for the telephony. Let's will be the voice about the and connected to the context under than the complex standard may use one of the architecture as i mentioned and usually i d i would not change. What have they can change. Maybe configuration that within they will not change it so if you want to be the voice box and connected to the context are you will be required to connect the weather. Customer has so this is in general a little bit about context centers in what we do in this market
Elon Musk - The Man Behind Tesla and SpaceX
"Well who's elon. Musk well if you don't know you're gonna find out right now. There is so much news internet entertainment on ilan mosque. And i want to tell you that this is only the basics of aeon. Musk who he is. There is plenty to find out about him. I will leave some of the links and the show notes. So don't forget to look but who is elon. Musk and how does he lawns story began. Well he is a visionary entrepreneur and the co founder of paypal and tesla motors as well as the founder of the new space x program which is very popular to day his astounding success has given rise to comparisons to the uniqueness of howard hughes and the tenacity of a henry ford but he did have an often difficult childhood like most of us kids his own age made fun of him from his own descriptions the years were lonely and brutal alon is quoted as saying they got my best friend to lure me out of hiding so they could beat me up and that hurt. That's when i realized that they were going to go after me non stop. That's what made growing up difficult for a number of years. There was no respite. You get chased around by gangs. These gangs tried to beat the insert. Swearword here out of me. And then i'd come home and it would just be awful there as well but not all was wasted. This difficulty cultivated itself into a relentless work ethic a never ending tenacious vision of the future. You see enron was born and raised in south africa and he spent some time in canada before finally moving to the united states thin and the united states. He was educated at the university of pennsylvania. A very good school majoring in physics. That's when ilan started to excel and experiment to soon. Become a serial tech entrepreneur with early successes like zip to an x dot com. He took on two majors at the university of pennsylvania but his time there wasn't all work with a fellow student. He bought a tin bedroom fraternity house which they used as an ad hoc nightclub will. Musk graduated with a bachelor of science and physics at all as a bachelor of arts in economics from the wharton school for ilan. Physics made the deepest impression. He is again quoted as saying and somewhat giving directions to boiling things down to their fundamental truths and reason up from their. Musk was twenty four years old when he moved to california to pursue at phd in applied physics at stanford university with the internet. Exploding in silicon valley booming. Musk had entrepreneurial visions on his mind and dropped out of the physics program just after two days but in two thousand and four. Musk joined to engineers to help. Run tesla motors. You've all heard of tesla motors right. Well this is where. Musk was integral and designing the first electric car. There's no doubt the electric car is the car of the future. But his first car the he designed was the tesla roadster as we are all aware of the tesla has become one of the world's most popular and coveted car brands and is still growing in popularity in the united states and in many different countries tesla and the electric car are taking over but we must never forget about musk's early interest in reading philosophy science fiction and fantasy novels and how that played a big role. I mean a huge role in the inventor that he is today. It is reflected in his sense of idealism and concern with human progress. He aims to work in the areas he has identified as crucial to our future specifically the internet. The transition to renewable energy sources and space colonization and. Ilan has been all over the media. Making three podcast episodes on the joe rogan experience while the first one in which he smoked. Marijuana was pretty funny but in a maximum article. I found this elon. Musk's third appearance on the joe rogan. Experience podcast the genius. Tesla and spacex. Ceo did reveal intriguing plans for a floating tesla. Musk revealed that the long awaited second generation tesla roadster could have a space x package that would allow it to hover at a limited altitude above the ground. Something that we have never seen before with all these new inventions floating around. Is it any wonder why everyone is watching. And curious about ilan's next big thing. Well at tesla fans are awaiting the cyber truck which will make an appearance at the end of twenty twenty one and the exciting numbers are in for ilan's wealth elon. Musk started twenty twenty with a worth of about twenty seven billion dollars and was barely in the top fifty richest people then in july of twenty twenty. Musk past warren buffett. The great billionaire to become the seventh richest person in november. Musk raced past bill gates to become the second richest person. Musk has gained more wealth over the past twelve months then gates his entire net worth of one hundred and thirty two billion dollars and according to cnbc elon. Musk just became the richest person in the world. With a net worth of more than one hundred and eighty five billion dollars alone recently had a new marker for his wealth and that is so cool because of all his inventions and his time spent caring and wanting the united states and the world to move ahead has made a name for himself. There is no doubt an increase in tesla's share price pushed. Musk past jeff bezos of amazon. Who had been the richest person since two thousand seventeen. You see musk's wealth surge over. The past year marks the fastest rise to the top of the rich list and history but why because he is investing in the future. It marks a dramatic financial turnaround for the famed entrepreneur. Because he cares about what happens in our future so with all his wealth experimentation and knowledge elon. Musk is our future and for those. That are young enough to dream about being an elon. Musk it must start with your curiosity with reading and learning more and more about new and different things and that i want for you and your children now and in the future.
Digital Marketing Tips for Photographers
"For our audience. Who doesn't know your process. I'm sure that the how the typical photography experience for some classes. You have you take the photos and later on it within a week or so you'll get your proofs or you'll get your deliverables. Is there a change in process where you can get instant reaction from your clients. Yes tether to my computer. So i take a picture and it's available on my computer screen. Which is larger than my camera screen within a second almost instantly and so i coach them before before i take any pictures. I talked to them about what i want them to do. And that helps me. Coach someone there in front of the camera because they know what i'm talking about and why And then i review them throughout the session images here and there that i think will help make coach them up to understand and trust me and do what. I'm actually telling them to do rather than kind of halfway do it. Because it feels weird And it's a chance for them to tell me what they do and don't like which allows me to coach some towards headshots that they liked better and they're more likely to buy so then at the end we review all of the images they say yes or no to every image of the ones that get the yes go onto a further round until we're right around the number of images they want to buy and then when they're when they're good when they eliminate everyone they don't want to buy they buy them and i get to work on them when they leak. It sounds like your process kind of fits three things number one. You get instant feedback from the client whether you get that. Well factor or not number two as a coach. You're able to tell them. Hey you need to do this or let. Let's try this and a number three. You get a awesome behind the scenes content. You get their reactions with your webcam. So that's pretty awesome. That how how your setup meets these three things so i. I think that's pretty cool. It's a it's much. It's much easier than telling people that's for sure now. I recently watched your behind the scenes video. And i it really gave me a sense and maybe wish i could physically go to your studio. Currently i can't because of the snowstorm and how and how hard it is to get outside but Watching your video gave really gave me a sense of what your sessions are like. How how the process goes and it really gave me a sense of what to expect. If i stood in your studio this very moment from watching your video i should say that i. I've done two kinds of behind the scenes videos are done. More of the kind of been talking about ritz may setting cameras and recording and then me trying to splice it together. Even though. I don't know how to do that. Very well but i've also paid videography to make a two minute video. That is very nicely produce Based off of kind of soup braces behind the scenes videos for her marketing Which are just went. Four or five levels up from what i'm doing now for just a social media post. That's more like a piece of marketing. Collateral that i use for a year or two years everywhere and it's it's more valuable but The stuff that involve myself as this great for one social media close if i get one social media press out of it it's worth it and primary use it again but just people what what i do and the other thing is that you could always use it as a collection piece for where you were in that time of year when you had your studio in that set It's also good to good to look back on on previous sets and also studio. You've worked out of so it could be this even for yourself sure. Maybe it'll end up in a mashup. John i want to talk. I wanna talk about your favourite platform that used for social media as a as a photographer. Tell me more about how. You're using link dan in order to connect with people as a photographer. Yet it's definitely linked information so My head shot qatar for friends. Typically more actors or more professionals there are other Other people that book head shops. That i'm aware of it's always actors or the corporate professional people So i'm definitely more on the professional Corporate side of things Either haven't been able to get into the actor. Market there is not a big aftermarket here. so linked in is is the slapped to be for that for my audience So i make a lot use of it on their more often than anywhere else and admit much more money off with it than any other platform and the good thing about lincoln is it acts differently than it is on on facebook or instagram or on twitter Just today i found content in my feed. That was that was posted a month ago and so the way things are coming up are different. It's not based on on what's popular is it's more based on what's relevant to you and so i found my experience on linked in different than any other platform. Do you think the way lincoln performs and how it's different been helpful for you and connecting with your audience. I feel like i feel like it's somewhat similar audiences to be honest but i think of it as people are in a different frame of mind. They're they're in a business mindset Which works very well for mason. Since it's an investment in your brand and helping you make more money. I feel like people are there to learn People on facebook aren't on face to learn stuff. Usually i feel like around there to see some pictures of their family and friends and is not. They're not serious when they're on when they're on facebook or instagram i don't think so it's a somewhat different audience but it's a different mindset. That people are in. So if i if i just forgot your question you can ask. Now we're good. We're good we're good. The my favorite platform just to just as of recent is has been clubhouse just to listen. I haven't been as participate. I haven't participated in it. But whenever i see you john. I always tried to jump to jump in on it as still pretty high right now. Do you have any takes on how you see a clubhouse tool for for photographers i mean i. I have photographers as market. I'm trying to reach now for the longest time. I would just accept any photographers. Who connected with me or whatever. And i didn't have anything for them. Just figured they wanted to see my pictures as i posted them and that was about it. But now i've taken on the role of mentor more seriously and i've written a book making banquets attire fee. That's available on amazon. So i've been on clubhouse because it's very easy to talk about photography and get a good number of i also I have. I saw twenty six copies of my book last month from you know leading leading one room. I think maybe two rooms and being around and being a moderator on other people's rooms So is not a lot of money because the book is very affordable but it's a lead magnet for me so i'm have three leads of people who are interested in paying me for one on one mentoring from you know hours of hours from one month of clubhouse that's awesome. I'm really excited to see where clubhouse takes it to the next level. I know it's still invite only and it's only on the irs app iowa system so android user. Sorry you gotta wait your turn. And i think it was earlier this week. Ilan decided to do an interview on it. So it's starting to get more more of the rage right. Now is awesome because it's hot and they're you know you can actually like if you get in a room with someone amazing Maybe not elon. Musk amazing but Very notable if you get in the razor in a shot up asking them question where you wouldn't get to otherwise
Is it too late to get in to Bitcoin?
"Back in the day when amazon i one public it shot up roughly after some fits and spurts. It went up to about ninety dollars. You it was like i'm too late. Missed it gone. And then it capitulated down at shot all the way down to two and i was like it's gone amazon's finished not even gonna look at it and then it went back up to ninety. I missed it. I missed it again then. Went up to three hundred to four hundred. It's this constant m. I too late emmett too. Early internal struggle that we have in our brain. What do you think about that. Yeah i think this is exactly so what you're really describing is Things being relative and this is actually think the fundamentally challenging concept with something like bitcoin which is a paradigm shift so people think about bitcoin relative to other assets. If you call a lot of conversations i had in two thousand nineteen twenty twenty where around bitcoins volatility right but bitcoins volatility relative to what because volatility is a relative measure price when we talk about price it's a relative measure because what am i Pricing bitcoin and typically people are pricing in dollars so relatively speaking yes. Bitcoin is volatile compared to holding dollars. But if we compare bitcoin to say equities if you quainton bonds if we compare bitcoin to precious metals the volatility doesn't look so extreme. What really happened at the start of this year. In march of twenty twenty the world shifted the world changed completely and forty years of capital markets. Beliefs were shattered like smashed with a hammer completely shattered. Now changes really hard for people and one of the things. That's really interesting For me personally. I want things to go fast right. Because i've in crypto and things fast and like wait why has it taken a six years to get to this point but in reality as you know the arc of time is very long and it takes a lot of time for the world to change for people to internalize that change and adjust their mental models right and a big part of this in a big part of ice than so much time talking and writing and trying to teach and communicate is. It's really about giving people new frameworks mental models to help them. Integrate this new way of thinking these mental models into how they view the world trade. That's really important. I think there's so many. Brilliant people in crypto. Who do this in different ways. So we have this really broad cross section of people communicating a lot of ways talking to a lot of different audiences which is amazing. The we had this fundamental shift happened. Everything got everything else got crazy. It's not that bitcoin got crazy. That everything else got way freaking crazier and what i love is when i talk to people about. Bitcoin bitcoin to extensive. I'm like let me ask you a question. Did you did you. By tesla five hundred and yeah. Of course i did. Like tesla's going to and i'm like okay. So tesla has appreciated more this year than bill. Clinton has tesla appreciated close to seven hundred percent in two thousand twenty yet you bought at the high and they clean appreciated two hundred and fifty percent and twenty twenty yet. You refuse to buy so help me understand right even if we're using the same of dollars even if we're looking at the same volatility measure somehow bitcoin Why and then he will start thinking. They're like wait a minute because math is hard this we know the people just. They're not thinking logically for some reasons for some people when they think about bitcoin their brain goes into like a tailspin and logic goes out the window. But this is again why i think the collectibles narrative is in so interesting to me because when i say to people like do you know what a honus wagner card is. They're like yeah. Of course. I know i'm like i don't know like okay. One honus wagner card is two point five million dollars. Do you think bitcoin at twenty five thousand thirty five thousand forty thousand is expensive in there. Like probably not right. So let's dig into that tesla coin thing. What part of the fact that. Bitcoin is effectively. Founded by an an-and sushi. Who we do not know if it's a he she it what vs on. Musk pop very public. Are we in agreement. That's the toshi was the aliens. Are we doing alias. I'm kidding shocking. Oh every time. I hear that especially in clubhouse. Everyone's like oh yeah. It was created by the alien somebody yeah. Let's not do that you know. I'm already speculating. That twenty two thousand one. The aliens are finally come here and just completely take over. But i don't want to hear that. The ashley also created the nsa taverners been around for a while and then there's a holiday larue like there. What what part in in psychology because you talked to a lot of institutional investors to you talked to a lot of big money. What part of that psychology. That one you have a very public figure with ilan and then too you have associate whom no one really knows who it is what it is. What part of that you place until list. Yeah so i actually think. Bitcoin and tesla are very similar in one regard both are aspirational and let me explain what i mean by that. Bitcoin invites you to conceptualize the world in a different way. Tesla what eon has done with business. Ilan has memed a new reality into existence. The way he talks about tesla right is completely detached from the economic realities of that business. Completely detached from the economic realities of that business but it doesn't matter because the vision that ilan describes the persona that he has the cult of personality he's created around himself is aspirational grit song by the way cult of personality. That's a great song. it's also great like psychological phenomenon. And what. I think eli done so effectively is. He's the zeitgeist okay. Markets are just sentiment machines. And it's it's been really interesting. Because every value investor. I talked to like twenty twenty. Made their brains explode. It literally made their slowed. They're looking at these stocks trading at fourteen hundred two thousand three thousand acts he for pe ratio rate and their brains are exploiting. That's our valued. And i'm like you forgot that nothing acid matters anymore. We don't live in the world that you lived in two years ago. this is not about value. We live in a world where there is a lot of uncertainty uncertainty about the future uncertainty about the stability institutions uncertainty about our role in this world. That's unfolding and in times of uncertainty. What people look for is vision. Right and what elon. Musk articulates when you talks about going to mars when you talks about. Putting for tesla on mars. That's vision right. I think satory she in so many ways and what we're doing with. Bitcoin is very similar. And i caught this. I've been really obsessed with the idea of building cathedrals lately. It's like five hundred years ago. Right if i was a visionary and had suggested for the future and i wanted to express that the only way for me to create something that withstood the test of time right to create quote unquote immutable. Truth was to build a cathedral and cathedrals took hundreds of years to build and people who built them dedicated tremendous amounts of resources to building these amazing like technology a technologically very advanced like gravity defying beautiful structures and. Whenever people saw them they would feel inspired. Right like cathedrals were how we painted a vision for the reality we wanted to live in. Okay tesla is a cathedral. Bitcoin is a cathedral. The stocks that are soaring the assets that are doing well their assets that are aspirational right and their people. Whether it's a non community of people an individual it's groups of people who believe in a vision for the future that is radically different from the future. We live today but it creates a motion. Right people look at it and they're like that is beautiful. And i wanna live in not future
interview With Meagan Crawford
"Well. Megan welcome to manage and cut off. This has been a year overdue at this point. An entire pandemic overdue. Maybe i'm happy that you're here talking to us. I'm really thrilled to be here. Thank you for having me anything so to start. I want everyone to meet you. Because you're awesome So you are a member of space fund. You also have this podcast mission eve. That is fantastic. Can you tell everyone a little bit about you sure. Yeah co founder and managing partner of space fund Where venture capital firm investing exclusively in the new space ecosystem so very kind of targeted fund And then i also have my podcast mission eve which I interview the most amazing women in the space industry. It's just been a thrill and just so much fun to do. And in the hopes of inspiring more women to join us here in the space industry So that's that's a project that's near and dear to my heart I'm also on. The board of several nonprofits needs to do a quick shout out the space frontier foundation. The center for space commerce finance mars initiative and the earth light foundation Spend an inordinate amount of my time helping those at nonprofits. So i think that's probably about it so we're gonna talk about a bunch of different angles on the finance side of stuff which i occasionally touch on but probably not as deeply as i should in many cases there's some fundraising that has happened. In the past year that has been particularly notable for the size specifically spacex relativity. Been getting gargantuan amounts of money there's some acquisitions that have happened recently. And then There's a whole trend of holding companies. That i find quite interesting as well as a trend that i find interesting and more shady. Which is this whole special purpose acquisition friend. Those are the things. I want to pick your brain about. Is there an order. would you like to start with fundraising and then get into what happens after. You've gotten a bunch of funding and actually accomplish things. What's the right order there. Yeah well I think i'd like to start with this kind of startling statistic that that i i like to I like to bring up a lot. Is that One and it's it's one of the reasons that spaceman was founded. Actually is you know. Currently launched comprises less than two percents of the global space economy yet has received seven percent of the venture capital. Today right sounds crazy but it. It makes such intuitive sense to like you know somebody watches the markets but exactly crazy. Yeah that's crazy. Yeah i like it when you hear that you're like oh yeah that seems right but holy crap. That's crazy just hear those numbers right and now the one question i would have is. Does that. include any space x funding as launch. Yes that includes spacex funding and includes the you know that big relativity rounded includes all of that. So i guess that's my that would be. My stipulation is like how. How do you separate out. What of that is going to starlink. zach satellites. Then does that skew it or is it not big enough to actually skew. Anything no matter how you classify either couple billion. Yeah so you know the regardless. It's it's a huge number even if he were to try and take starlink out of the kind of the space x portion of that. They're going to be forty percent of the venture right number exactly exactly and so you know when When my partner. Rick tomlinson and i were contemplating a founding space fund. You know this was one of the things that was really bothering us. We were kind of looking around the industry at all of our our friends and colleagues. Who are these brilliant entrepreneurs going and down sandhill road and couldn't get any funding and meanwhile while all these other. Vc's are just pouring good money. After bad into launch company after launch company because all ilan has launched company and basil's has launched company and jared. Leto is invested in in relativity space so i need a launch company. Right and base fund is currently tracking a hundred and sixty two active launch companies around the world.

Should I create multiple revenue streams?
"On. Today's cuny wednesday. Sheva asks should she sur building multiple streams of income as she starts working and making money online. And just for clarification. You know many people advise this like have multiple streams of income like make money on affiliate marketing but also make money with a product Also make money with the service and also make money through sponsorships and just basically trying to make money in so many different ways as much as possible. Now in theory having multiple streams of income is not a bad idea. It's bad advice. But if somebody told you start a business with this mindset with a strategy i would actually classify that as bad advice when you're getting started your whole goal should be to get a win to get some success to have one successful stream of income often. We don't recognize that our energy is limited. Our attention is limited our times ltd. And if we are spreading our focus against different initiatives at the star it'll be very hard for us to get traction and quickly get a win for our business you're goal should be to be profitable as a business to see something works. You can double and triple down. And then maybe that process in a different stream of income a different way a different product and a different service but a lot of people are trying to get five or six win simultaneously and. I don't think that's healthy. That's not a good use of your time. Your energy your effort. I want you to imagine you have five shopping carts filled with groceries. Okay and these shopping. Carts are all lined up at the start of an aisle in the supermarket. Have five cards five miles. Okay and your goal is to get all these shopping carts to the end of each aisle. Okay you only have a limited amount of energy and time so imagine you go to the first car and you push a little. Maybe a few feet. Then you go to the next car. Then you push the next one a few feet down the aisle then the next car then the next car. And you know maybe some time goes by and none of. The carts actually reached the destination. Never succeed never gets to the finish line damage to the exercise but you know. Instead of focusing on five cards you focus on one car. You spend all your time pushing that card down the aisle you get further down the aisle because you're not switching one car to the next you know wasting your energy on carts you're gonna get further along the i feel because your focus so what. I'm trying to explain here. Is you're going to more of a win if you focus on one thing now. This isn't mean you don't try different things or experiment or you can Do small projects or mvp's to figure out what you wanna do but once you are trying to make money you're putting product out in the market. Once you're past the mvp phase you really have to focus and double and triple down so you can get some momentum when you're starting as an entrepreneur. In my opinion it's incredibly important to get momentum to get a win to really feel a sense of success because that begets success. The helps you get success successful in one area. It's going to allow you to be successful in other areas so crossed the finish line. Some wins earn some income. Be profitable have a successful business. I with a product with a service with something that you really really excel in build the system around build the team around and then you can move onto another stream of income another business another product and do the same thing again. What happens to a lot of people's take this advice. When they're starting they try to build all these streams of income. None of them really move the needle. They make a few dollars here. Few dollars there and they ended up giving up on entrepreneurship together because in total they don't have a significant win because they're switching their attention back and forth from one thing to another they don't have enough resources to hire out and frankly they just get tired is a whole easier for you to gain success and to really have some traction in your business if you focus on one thing once you have a viable product that you know your customers want take the time to improve it to perfect it to have a good sales funnel to get the business to a point where you can start again building system in hiring people around you so they can run it for you so they can run and do the heavy lifting and you can just manage and you can just be the strategic planner of his business and then you can move on again to the next product the next service or something that actually helps her supplements that business if you look at any entrepreneur the has multiple streams of income Very very often. It will mean that they built one before the other for example. If you look. At noah kagan he first started app. Sumo absuing became successful. He took that success and then built another company called sumo dot com which is a software company then took that success and built king sumo and then from king sumo he built other products like san fox and fam but very seldomly. You will see a entrepreneur again doing all of this at once. Even ilan moscow's quote unquote the poster child for multiple streams of income. Who has tesla and spacex and solar city a lot of people forget that hughes one of the co founders of paypal and he was able to fund spacex and tesla with the money earned from people's acquisition. So he focused on alwin. He got a win. I and got some funding. So that's my advice yeshiva. Everybody who's listening. This is going to be a huge huge relief on your stress levels. Now that you can just focus on one thing and just see that thing through the finish line say finish line. I mean a profitable business at. You're happy with the sustainable that allows you to again higher outta team and then move on to the next stream of income.
Musk Email, Holiday Update, India, Panasonic
"Everybody round here and today. We're just doing a quick check. In episode. As i said my schedule's a little bit up in the air this week as i am taking delivery of my model three this week and celebrating holidays. Thankfully it's been a pretty quiet few days here as we head into quarter and usually that's not the case when i'm off but there are still a few topics i wanna cover shocking to everyone. I'm sure we have another elon. Musk leaked e mail. We have some news on tesla. India and a report on panasonic and tussles forty six eighty cells. Quick look at the stock after a long weekend. The market was closed for dana. Half at the tail end of last week for holidays so today opened a pretty exciting. About six hundred seventy five dollars but became much less exciting throughout the day tussle finishing up just zero point three percent to six hundred and sixty three dollars and a nice sixty nine cents. Nasdaq on the finish up zero point. Seven four percent catching up on volume over the last couple of days obviously market closed early on thursday about twenty two point nine million shares traded hands on that half day and then today monday started the week off with thirty one point four million shares. So those are both much lower than the one month average but pretty close to what we were averaging prior to the s. and p. five hundred inclusion announcement as for this week. The nasdaq will be closed all day on friday january first for new year's day but it will be open all day on thursday. The thirty first new year's eve day aren't so let's start off with this elon. Musk leaked e mail. As we had predicted earlier we should be expecting to see something like this. Towards the end of the quarter that has now come to fruition wishing electric on saturday publishing the e mail in full elon writes quote after today. We have just five days to achieve the historic milestone of five hundred thousand cars built and delivered. Please go all out to make it happen. This is a great milestone to rally the company around achieving. All the critics who as recently as two years ago said that we'd never make it also called our target of half a million in two thousand twenty quote unquote impossible. The heck with them. We are doing it. Particular help would be appreciated at end of the line to ensure cars built now are able to be delivered immediately without any further improvements and beady eye as there simply isn't enough time to do so. Hope everyone was able to spend some time with loved ones. This holiday season and has an amazing twenty twenty. One yuan and quote believe pd either is pre delivery inspection. So he's just saying there's no time to fix the cars after their off the line so make it perfect from the start. These emails now have pretty much become like clockwork at the end of quarters i would say probably the most interesting part about this email is the lack of really anything all that interesting in it kind of what you would expect from him right like. Let's rally around this milestone. If we go all out we can achieve it. Let's make sure these last cars off. The line are really good quality so that we can deliver them quick. I guess what. I'm trying to say here. Is that if things were going as smoothly as possible. This is the sort of email i would expect to see. Doesn't sound like there. Any major fire drills. It doesn't sound like it's a longshot. Doesn't sound like they're having issues delivering record numbers of cars. There's a lot here that is not said that could have been said if there were significant issues like that over the coming days we will of course continue to discuss delivery and production numbers pork. You for all go through detailed forecast sometime for at the actual numbers which should be somewhere between january second and january fourth. But my take going just off this email very speculatively. I think tesla had it in the bag by the time you on. Musk send us email i think. Five hundred thousand is a lock. And i think eon knows he knows this is gonna get leaked out. It has every single quarter for the last. I dunno five quarters out. He knows it's going to be seen. He's specifically rights five hundred thousand produced and delivered if ilan was on the fence about this if he was thinking okay maybe we can hit five hundred thousand produced but it might be a long shot to hit five and eight thousand actually just for logistical reasons. It would have been very simple for him with an email like this to put the focus on production and try to emphasize that narrative around five hundred thousand produced rather than also emphasizing deliveries. Here he's also specifically calling out which i don't know i mean it would be kind of a weird move to call out your critics and not actually hit that number that they were criticizing you four even if that is a good motivational tactic and even if there would be really good reasons for you not to hit it it would just be kind of weird to call attention to that and then go well actually we. We didn't even get there. We were close but we didn't get there so quite a few reasons there. I think you'll on visas lock and again. This was five days out for him to have that kind of confidence. I think they are likely to overachiever. By a relatively significant amount as for what that amount is again. We'll go through that and a more detailed forecasts later on this week. Good spot for a reminder to subscribe because again schedules a bit up in the air right next year i just wanted to briefly touch on at least offer update. That's been going out over the last few days. This is sort of the holiday. Update this is twenty twenty eight dot forty eight dot twenty six a few new features here. We're not gonna touch on all of them. The big changes seem to be a few new games. We have an update to the user interface on driving visualizations and then boombox which uses the external speaker to play either custom sounds or series of pre made ones but of course not all tesla's have that external speaker which meant for pedestrian warnings. Those started being installed. I'm not sure of the date but maybe somewhere between a year two years ago so those updates and then the other big one is probably the super charger display. There's a little bit more information in terms of how those show up on at the map now so reactions to this release have been mixed. I think a lot of disappointment out there that we did not see us significantly wider obese of self-driving beta quite yet based on eons previous tweets maybe a quarter or so ago. This was definitely around the time they expected that to go wider. But anybody is to surprised to see that date slip a little bit
Elon Musk Eyeballing Super Company "X"
"So yesterday we're talking about this potential apple car. We're talking about this. Meet up that n- may have taken place in an alternate universe reality dimension but did not take place in this one. This meeting of the minds between each. Musk and tim cook. Apparently musk reached out to tim cook. In the early days in model three talked about potentially having apple acquire tesla for one tenth of the current value. That did not take place. Apple probably does not care and the rumor now is that they'll launch their own electric vehicle in twenty twenty four. That's the rumor currently however in the meantime Yvonne has experimented with a variety of companies not just electric cars. Tesla the most well known of the bunch but he's got a lot of stuff going on including space x the boring company. Sometimes you wear the hat. He says the boring company on it. Yeah not today not today neuralink starlink these still have a solar city or is that as probably solar something going on among a variety of other things. I'm sure that maybe people are less talked about and things that he's working on but Obviously i guess a serial entrepreneur. Maybe you might call it He's interested in a lot of different things and so recently there was a suggestion took place on open. Api is in there. Look at this. It's hard to keep it all together. Anyway there was a suggestion that took place on twitter from tesla investor. Who said who actually has the name by the way. Oh so it's not. The dave lead that we know but nonetheless i propose elon musk to form a holding company. Called axe alcoa's at well. What's the name of your company x. It's it's immediately a futuristic and mysterious. That's what does for you xs mission. This is again part of the tweet and the suggestion xs mission is to ensure human survival and progress. That's the only mission xs x becomes the parent. Company of tesla spacex neuralink born company. Ilan what do you think once again. We have ilan making news with just a quick little reply. Good idea december twenty third. And just like that. What you get forty eight thousand likes on the tweet anyway. So he's open to the idea and You obviously remember the story with not the story but the development with google becoming alphabet and then and then alphabet being the parent company of this variety of companies underneath. So i guess it would be a similar structure similar idea to something like that however. I'm not certain. I'm not sure why this wouldn't have been done all ready. There must be some kind of advantage to having these all Broken out individually. There's a suggestion here that in In the case of starlink they were considering an independent. Ipo for that company on its own. That could be a huge company on. Its own talking about Bringing internet two locations through via satellite that were previously underserviced. So i don't know about the advantages disadvantages but it would. It does seem like a tidy way to bring all of the brands in missions. Were all of the missions in line to but to bring the insight to bring to potentially bring the talent into into more of an overlap. Where now you may have technologies and advancements that take place under one heading bleeding more easily into another so like so there's different wings. We've already heard about this right with. Was it the cyber truck they like. Oh the stealing cyber truck. We learned about and spacex. And and then you could imagine. Oh our ai. Discovery through thomas on tesla. We're using that in when we're working on neuralink and i'm sure this is happening already. But not in a in an official way
Musk predicts full autonomy from 2021
"All right so getting into the must interview. This was earlier today. Yulon was accepting the axel award the fifth person to win this award so we sat down for about a thirty minute. Chat or so with axel springer's see up overall. I thought it was a really good interview. I'll put the link in the show notes. A lot of stuff that we have heard before of course but some interesting new insights as well from you on. I think the biggest headline will probably be comments around. Autonomous driving axles springer. Ceo asked quote win. Is thomas driving really really going to happen. And quote and john said quote. I'm extremely confident of achieving full autonomy and releasing it to the tesla customer base next year. And so of course. We've heard comments like this from the past. And we also have this sort of convolution going on between full autonomy and tesla's full self-driving option as oftentimes ilan will talk with that as a frame of reference and talk about win. That option will be feature complete which is not necessarily full autonomy so the actual springer co did a great job here of clarifying that point saying level five relief full autonomy and eline replied. Yes yes and quote so just to clarify what that means that five is defined as the vehicle being incomplete control and it can handle all circumstances conditions that a human driver could reasonably handle so essentially full autonomy. If we step down the levels level four is basically the same except it is only in certain locations or in certain circumstances so you can think of something that is geo fenced or maybe only works during the daytime or when. It's not raining something like that. But if all those conditions are met it can be fully autonomous. It doesn't even need deva pedal or steering wheel and again. The vehicle has full control and responsibility stepping down to level three. This is the middle ground. Where under certain conditions within the drive the car may be able to take over but when those conditions are no longer the case. The car needs to alert the driver to be ready to take over with a reasonable warning period. So good example there is. Maybe it's highway only where you don't really need to pay attention. There's no nag but as your your exit. Maybe the cartels you. Hey and ten seconds you need to be ready to take over control so to go from level to where the driver is info control but has sort of assistance features to go to level. Three is really a big significant step and even with the full. Self-driving beta test tesla has not taken that step quite yet but of course. That's what they hope to be able to collect data four to be able to prove that eventually the system can go ahead and confidently have control needing that driver monitoring if that happens on some portions of the drive. Tesla ben is able to step up to level three. If tesla's confident that that can happen for all portions of some drives that step to four and if it can take over every drive all the time that's level five so ilan feel confident that they can eventually get to level. Five yuan here is saying that that will happen next year again. That would be quite a step up. From where tesla is today as for regulations allowing something like this. You llamas competent that at least some jurisdictions will allow that next year and from my limited research on this. I'm pretty sure many states already do think florida is a great example where fully autonomous vehicles are already permitted and ready to go where nothing would need to change in the regulations to allow a level five operation of course many other areas could be more strict and the regulation. And it'll sort of get phased in. I think over time if this is able to be achieved

Say as I said. We recorded this a few weeks ago, so this was before. Before the murder of George Floyd this was before the massive civil rights movement that is going on in the states right now and so if you're wondering why we are not talking about, it's because it had not happened yet. That being said I'm talking about it now. I'm actually recording this intro on June nineteenth, commemorating the freeing of the slaves in America It's a good day for reflecting especially considering everything that is going on with the F. or mentioned civil rights movement that is sweeping this country I wanNA.

"Course they take. But I've always found the idea that you have to have. Your one sound is completely idiotic. Well I mean it's a. It's constrictive like it's suffocating. From a creative standpoint yeah. I mean I'm not I'm certainly not comparing myself but you know the most legendary evolution I I would say is is the Beatles given the the the spam but imagine if Brian Epstein was like is please please me was exceptional in. You guys need to just do that forever. And in a break up in nineteen seventy doing twist and shout in chains in this just like that. W- it's ridiculous and I don't know if you'll have more of a short term. Let's see what we can do with this and cash out as soon as possible. Sort of mentality. I have no idea but I think anything that's great has to change because you're always exploring and searching for something and you will cease to do that if you're just trying to repeat yourself. There's I gotTa tell you you just answered like three of my pre written questions on your own with no prompting. They're on the same page. Hell yeah part part in my my quarantine facial hair. I mean. This is not a look that cultivating just outta razors a now. When I looked at the Google hanging out with this that hush it and had to be exposed here letting zone difficult. It's the Corinthian Corentin fashion zone. Let's roll so was the what was the inspiration or like impetus for starting new regime in the first place was. Was it mainly because you had these collection of songs that you wanted to start putting out or was it more about having the project Neither actually awesome. I okay so backing up people bit. I started playing drums at seven and a half eight years old. Having the two older brothers we discussed earlier they moved onto guitar and Bass and I had access to those instruments in the same obsessed. The same obsession would kinda take over me when I learned something on it. If I learned a riff on guitar I couldn't put the thing down. And then that became a what else can learn guitar or learn scale littler lead so that same craving of knowledge in needing to get better would take over me on every instrument played so by the time I was eighteen. I found myself to be a speak. Frankly of very good guitar player. Pianos Racist Drummer so and so forth and I thought well what is the point of being able to do all of this. If I can't sing that's the most important thing you want to write music so honestly force myself and I suppose. The impetus was extreme frustration. Having been the drummer in bands where depending on what your method of recording as I mean more often than not the drummer's the first one in and out of the studio and then I'd have to spend your time waiting for everybody else to finish. You have to wait for mixing up to wait for mastering before shows get booked in from the time. I would record drum tracks in anticipate the following tour. It could have been eight months. It could have been a year and I would see people in their way of recording and honestly irritatingly think to myself. I could do this so much faster. I don't want to wait for these guys. This is bullshit right and so that in the realization that I needed sane to truly take my destiny into my own hands. You know lack of less pretentious for his I A. I forced myself to do it. Came with the new regime and once I wrote my first song which is a song called some things which is on my first album coup. I thought I can do this. And I'm going to. An coup is actually the first ten songs I've ever written out the songwriting. Journeys is very well documented in terms of the new regime discography. I I'm sitting sitting here. Also as a multi instrumentalist songwriter singer. Being annoyed by how good the first album is knowing how early that time line but thank you very much. I appreciate that. Yeah so funny enough. The last on the album was the first time I ever wrote in the in the first song on the almost the second one I ever wrote. So there's a lot of piano based music on there and in the piano is a common thread throughout the new game I suppose the amount of PNL input or output kind of diminished from release to release. But really since I put out my most recent album. I've got this New Beautiful Role In digital upright and I haven't been able to start writing songs on it. So who knows what next album going to be but there you have. It was just got got along in an unforeseeable amount of time on my hands. Apparently yeah well definitely want to get into the kind of the current situation eventually but I want to ask you the obnoxious question. How many instruments do you actually play? Are We counting? Vogel's yeah absolutely okay. Well I would say five well five. Well that's the name is basically comprised of now look. I've dabbled with plenty of other things that have made under recordings. But am I gonNA call myself a ukulele player or a cellist or a glacken spiel player. No but that you possess quite a few instruments and funny enough I Put It in order for the clarinet the other day. I don't know what his deal in the morning house. Like you know what I don't wind instrument and I think that's a good one to start on side by bought one and should be here today. Now unless unless somebody turns over the delivery truck looking for toilet paper and hand. Sanitizer should be here soon. Okay so would you say now obviously singing sort of the vehicle to get to again? Get you in control of your own sort of songwriting journey here but in terms of instruments other than vocals. Would you say that you have one? That's a favorite. I I don't and I truly mean that in really the reason is that every instrument shines in its own way you know nothing can duplicate rhythm and energy the way a drum set can nothing can cover as much musical ground at one time as a piano can so for that very reason. I will wholeheartedly say in believe that. The Piano is the greatest instrument of all time. I mean it's no no secret that almost every I mean. I can't think of a composer great composer whose main instrument was not the piano. I'm not saying everybody Ozo- but It just makes the most sense and when I started plying remember one of my friends in high school was dad was a pianist. Was like you know when it comes to theory. It's all laid out there black and white and Toyota but literally so I was brilliant. But yeah you you. Won't I mean it makes you look at it music differently and are aged player? Have it and just the most minute amount of piano knowledge could open up the guitar in so many ways to two different versions to planning voices of cords that have either the third the fifth on the on the bottom as opposed to just route notes and bar codes and all that stuff and we are? And it just really makes you look at things differently. I mean the piano. The one thing that is frustrating about the piano and his excellent about the panels that there's no one shape that really takes place across the keyboard. I mean the reason why people are able to get away with being self taught as a guitar player or a Bass player is because you can take your one shape. Move it anywhere on the neck and it's going to do its job. You know you don't have to know which notes you're applying. What intervals you're lying. You can look at it as a series of DOS space is. Here's my Barkor and if I left my finger up now it's a minor chord. You know something like that. That was work with Youth. You're gonNA take something from one key to another. You have to know how to do that or it's not going to work. Yeah there's nothing more instructive than just the simple linear layout of a piano if you want to understand music and it's where you go exactly but the fact that you can take the same position of a major scale on a fret board in just moving nap step at a time. You can't do that on a piano. You have to learn it very often a different fingering pattern in. That's both hands so it's it's far more of a IT'S A. It's a far deeper instrument. Roy Really I'm not saying I mean there are incredible guitars out there who make all of those realizations on the guitar. But I just think you know there's no way around it on the piano. You have to know the way. Music is sort of designed. I guess another way it works and functions so I think the greatest but You know playing a riff on a guitar. You can't touch that feeling either you know especially with the The various sounds come up with. I mean that's what I love about. Guitar have a different set of pickups different amp different style guitar brand different pedals. It'll make you play differently. It in all spark a different Feeling of creativity. And you don't really get that on drums. You know it's just everything has its strong suits sort of you know deficiencies if you will deficits so love how how thorough and earnest that ants was makes me so happy and I could not agree more but okay songwriting process. Do you have a defined one or do you go in lyrics I music I or is it however strikes you at the time however it strikes me although lyrics last almost ninety nine percent of the time just because I approach everything musically so The best case scenario for me is when I'm doing the music and the lyrics at the same time. Sometimes both ideas are in sync with each other and the song sort of rights itself but usually what sparks an idea or the planting the seed to start night at to finish? The song is me sitting at the piano or guitar. Excuse me messing around in pro tools in all of that comes from a musical place. You know it's not like I'm just sitting there doodling lyrics in one. I now I have the song you know. That's that's not where I come from but I totally respect and appreciate those who sort of write lyrics without having any sort of melody in mind right music and then find a way where they meet. I think sting writes that way or at least wrote that way. I'm an enormous police fan and I think that's the way that he tackled it in. That's great you know but in terms of the spark of inspiration that really comes from sound for me awesome awesome. I definitely again in listening.

"Hello and welcome to a very special episode of discography. There's we were lucky enough to interview Ilan Rubin. He's at a story career working with nine inch nails angels and airwaves paramore and others and most recently his solo band. The new regime put out a full length record called heart mind body and soul. I had a wonderful time talking with him. So please enjoy the interview. Well Hello John Bolger to meet Ya Committee as well so We laid to go and get right down to the bad. You know with really hard hitting questions the first one is. How do you get your hair to do that? Well I sleep a lot and the technique. I used to roll out of bed when I finally decide to wake. Up is really where this all comes from. That is absolutely wonderful. All right now on the more serious stuff Clearly have been to music for quite some time. Are You schooled in music? Theory or Are these kind of bold cord choices on conventional scales that you use so often something you figure it out by ear. both I have to say I I educated myself musically in terms of theory and harmony and all that fun stuff I always enjoy didn't have always been a very good self learner in terms of buying a ton of books and absorbing the information however I do not use any of it to approach writing music to be honest with you I mean I think the thing about having a knowledge of theory is that it helps you analyse music things that you actually figure out what it is about music that that makes it tick for you. You know more if I run into a corner where I'm like I actually don't know where to go here. Purely based on instinct. What are my options? Then you're able to kind of see what pads open up via theory and harmony as well. I can't stand people who are mediocre songwriters. Think that having an ounce of music knowledge is GONNA hinder their precious creativity. Just another tool in your belt. I've I've gone the rant on the podcast. A Million Times saying music theory is not prescriptive descriptive. It's a it's a it's just helps you understand what's happening that's it it's not rules. It's literally like people sitting. I WanNa be a great writer except I don't know grammar is very similar to that can be. You can be a skilled conversationalist but if you can't spell a word you're GonNa look pretty stupid you know but whenever well let's Let's see here. Looks like your brother is also musician so playing music. A big part of your your child together. Yes the reason why I didn't have one. I'm totally kidding. I had I wasn't one of those funds. I did start music very on about seven and a half eight years old started playing drums. I have two older. Brothers my oldest. Who has the one you are? Mentioning at imagine is my manager. It has been may as each plant band together all three. There's actually and for quite some time by brothers plumbing base erosion live so we're cream late and a tight family unit but yeah I mean. They dabbled in music before I did considering. They're five and eight years old and I am sure enough. Yeah does that make you the baby of the family then baby in the best massery right on the same boat? Yeah all right so clearly you have a Lotta musical influences and a lot of them come out. And they're kind of all over the place. Can you talk to me about maybe two real obvious influences and maybe a couple that are more obscure that people would have to go digging for lots? It's a good way of phrasing this question because I don't know if you know anything about me but anytime I talk about influences or discuss what I like. I immediately started gushing about the same three people you know. I mean I have I have or more than that but in terms of the stuff that really hits me consistently. I don't know if you pick it up based on the music solely but Perhaps a tinge here that I mean my favorite of all time without a doubt is led Zeppelin surprise surprise one so forth. Now you may catch moments of those things that present themselves in the music but by no means. Would you listened to the new regime? Be like this leads up fanatic. I'm not in dragon pants or have my chest out on stage or anything you know. Whatever but I'm saying So those are personally my biggest influences and you may find bits and pieces than here and there but that maybe a little less obvious I'm a massive Jeff Buckley Fan and I've I've learned quite a few of my chord voicing learning some of his songs so all of that stuff kind of makes its way in there at some point or other but but really. I always try to keep everything versatile in different from anything that I've done. So I suppose that you know announce Buckley here's up Lemaire radiohead. They're a little bit of harmony. That have picked up from. Who knows Beethoven Schubert? I'm not trying to sound pretentious literally. This is how diverse my my influences are and they all find a way to Help make up would it? I am a songwriter. We noticed just how many different angles pop in you know The I'm hearing bits Bowie McQueen again. Bits of just a more classical runs on the actual instrumental melodies and whatnot. It's been really interesting. Going through your your entire discography over the time preparing for this and just kind of listening to wow. This really does go everywhere. It's unique thing. I'm glad he picked up on that. Thank you it's really funny because when I first started regime. It's been an oddly long while although it doesn't feel that way because of the various other things that have taken years of my time or that I devoted years of time too but when I first started the new regime and writing my own songs from the very onset I said to myself. I'm going to write every song drastically different from because whoever becomes a fan of the band or me as a songwriter. I want them to constantly anticipate something. New are banned. Who HAVE THEIR SOUND. And it's the same whether it's album Zombie five. And Hey if you like that then great but everything that I've loved his had very definitive evolution and early on a lot of people whether be labels or publishers. Whatever had a really hard time putting me in a box which is stupid. I think it's very intuitive. And would is this. Are you a rock band or use it? More pop is immoral. What what are you like? Who gives a shit? It's good and listen to it you know. And what's funny? Is that you you fast forward. However many years later and I keep reading articles about our genres dying because so many things are crossing from alternative pop or obviously hip hop country. All these sorts of mutations of music are finding their way to the most popular outlets and you now find people saying that that genres stupid really to really have to define something by what categories in so. It's funny to see where things kind of go in. The.
