Okay, let's focus on the window and only look outside. And for the next 15 minutes, they stare outside the window. Another one. Oh, another one. Another one. Wow, wow, wow wow wow, wow, Imran says.

Wow, another one, ten. Oh, another one. Another 11. 12. So it becomes a game. Who can spot the most raptor dinos as the train makes it way to Agra for the Taj Mahal. When the train starts to slow down and the scenery starts to change again, more and more houses appear and the raptors become less and less and less. How many did you count Imran asked Issa?

Colonel Richard Kemp Says Jihadists, China, and Russia Are Celebrating the Afghanistan Crisis
"You know, we're seeing what we face now is a a terrorist threat coming out of Afghanistan. That is greater than the terrorist threat before 9 11 jihadists around the world have been celebrating. The events and not least the president. Not this is a jihadist, but the president of Pakistan, Imran Khan, who himself celebrated it, he should be celebrating because Pakistan significantly funded The Taliban throughout the campaign, while at the same time being paid vast amounts of money by America and Britain. Um, but they're celebrating around the world. Hamas in Gaza are celebrating What's happening here? Um, and they will be re energize. They will have to see that their recruitment has been boosted. They will be reinvigorated and they will launched attacks around the world against our countries, as they did really when they were being inspired by the Islamic state. Al Qaeda and the Islamic state are strong in Afghanistan. At the moment, Al Qaeda fought alongside the Taliban in recent battles. They will operate freely. Just doesn't matter what the Taliban say to you. They will allow the Al Qaeda in the Islamic state to operate freely there, and they can operate more freely than they could before 9 11. Because they know there's no fear of Western intervention. Now that's finished. That's history. There's not going to happen again. They know that and so they'll be even bolder than before and jihadist from around the world will flock into Afghanistan. To train prepare and launch attacks against the West. So The state of the terrorist threat is higher than it was at the height of the Islamic state's power when they controlled large parts of Syria and of Iraq. That's just one aspect of The situation. There is no one really who is celebrating this situation more than Russia and China. They're the greatest cheerleaders for what's happened.

Is there a lot of how saturated would you say dentistry is in the community that you opened up your practice and was there like a lot of 'cause i would think you guys have universal healthcare right he s. Oh how did that go like is there is a separate competition or now there is now industry. I'm sure it's probably the same and the us is very close community. So you know dentists from you know the hulk dentist joke nurses high genus everything. Everyone knows each other. A small world Industry so yes. There is competition by from where me and my wife will come in. I really wanted to see it too much as competition. Because i i was willing to another. I knew a into ona's like of advice from early.

I wish we can tell everybody about this system whether it's either clinical or on the front office back office anything like that. Yeah okay so. I may say we install from we used to have a big massive Whiteboard we used to write down all on goes objectives. And i think this is another thing that initial this we read advice.

Qassam a home away from wales from the uk Really really cool guy really awesome and we talk about how got into dentistry for some foremost and then how he bought a practice ran. It made it pretty successful. And then he sold it in the middle of I guess like kobe. Nineteen the pandemic and so we discuss a little bit before that we talk about. You know what mistakes were happening in the construction phase. How it's a little bit different in the uk right. Starting up a practice and then we also talk about while he was in his practice what he was doing for marketing and advertising hiring his team members. We discussed some the mistake. One pretty big mistake. He made while his his practice was being built is he wished he had something in specific and he mentioned it. I kind of thought by now is like a lot of us. Don't don't really have that. I guess and i think it's a pretty awesome thing to to incorporate win. You are in the construction phase or the building phase of your your practice or your startup. so then we talk about that. We also talk about how in order for him to keep costs low. He had a pretty intense interview process because whoever he hired he invested a ton in their staff. He invested a lot and so none of his team ever. I guess quit out of Let go refired out of just like spite in like i'm so sick of i'm tired of it. No it was more for you know. Maybe they were pregnant or they moved far far far away things like that but in that he lets us know his interview process and how it worked out for him Then we discuss why. He decided to sell his practice. Which is a pretty big thing. I think a lot of us. It would benefit a lot of us if we listened to this and really thought about our situation as well And what we're going through right now because it's easy to think of letting go of something when it's like a it's like feel like it's bringing down with a headache. We started to dread going to our practice all the time. It's kind of easy to like. Go up at then right but when it's being successful there has to be a different reason. Why you wanna let it go. And so we talk about that and how difficult it might have been for him to sell his practice and so much more and we talk about will. He opened up another practice coming up and what he's doing right now. for profits and for Income and things like that so great episode without further.

Imran Amed and Tim Blanks on a Most Unusual Fashion Month
"Blow everyone. This is Imran Ahmed founder CEO of the business of fashion and I am here with my friend and colleague Tim Blanks editor at large of the business of fashion, and usually around this time of year timid I do a debrief on the fashion week has gone by and it's usually been informed by some of the chats the Timman I have. In the back of a car shuttling from one show to another in in all of the fashion cities. But this has been it goes without saying a fashion season that was very different but we wanted to continue our tradition and as it's been such a unique and unusual season maybe it's even more interesting to talk about the fashion season that's gone by so. Cam Maybe, we could just start with. The decision that both you and I made not. Any physical shows season in what what led you down that path because of course, there were some things you could have gone to here in London but in the end that didn't transpire. Well, my husband Jeff is very high risk and we have been so extremely careful since March. That it just seemed the sensible decision to extend vet caution and keep on extending it until we know there's not some kind of. Remove as much as remove as many random elements as possible from alive I I feel. Schizo being out of the House for all the months I found it so. Wasn't even the novelty I just found. The options that we would given. If we wanted attending things in person, we could zoom with design is we we could dive we can do deep dives into collections I ended up quite seduced by the virtual option I have to say. Come on a room. That's a surprise because you know at the early. Onset pandemic, we were talking about Sasha demonstrating graying potentially. Some shows never happening again. You know you're quite pro fashion meets Elliott. and Pro fashion shows because fashion shows have been my exposure to fashioned for my entire time working in this industry and I was definitely on the side of. You know that way of that way of encountering fashion, but this has been an education in. So many ways a pop aside from the fact, I've actually you learned to use technology and in a way I never thought I would I would ever be able to. It doesn't kind of. Terrify me Oh bull made whatever. You know the as so many people said, and it didn't matter whether there were people like me who just sit and look at things or whether they will buy as you know people who have whose bread and butter is the touchy feely side of the industry seventy people were saying the. The ability to go back and look at things and to have to think of something, and then be able to go back and see whether it was what you were thinking of old. To cross-references and to. and to be entertained as well. I think the difference this season as people really really got their virtual presence together. You know we've had a couple of. Dummy, runs that went. Wildly convincing. And I think this time there was so much thoughts and creativity and ingenuity applied to new ways of doing business that anyways. Bringing us to the world that that it was a very, very different game I felt. Yeah. You also got to spend. More time with the designers because. So much more I. Mean that was a mixed blessing in a way because normally it's three minutes backstage a few questions and he whiz off and do your review, and now it was forty five minutes zooms and so you having proper it reminded me actually it's funny. It reminded me of.

Stella Jean Asks Do Black Lives Matter in Italian Fashion?
"Hello everyone. This is Tim, Ron Ahmed founder, and CEO of the business of fashion. Welcome to the latest episode of B. O. F. Live today I'm here with the designer Stella Zhong who is joining us from. and. We're here to talk about a very important topic of his see that we have been discussing at length here on the OH F- Few months much of the discussion around the black lives matter movement in fashion has been focused on conversations in the US and to a certain extent here in the UK where I'm based but Stella has been playing a leading role in driving the conversation around black lives matter in Italy, and so we're delighted to have her with us today to help paint a picture about how this conversation is very important. Conversation has a very unique tone and history and contacts that differentiates it. From some of the other countries, of course, the core conversation is rooted in the same goals around achieving better racial equity for black professionals in fashion. But initially, there's some specific contexts and situations that make the conversation. They're a really important one to consider outside some of the other conversations that we've been having. So I'm delighted to have Stella with us here today and Stella. Before we dive into the topic at hand I want to start with you and your personal background and history just for those listeners and viewers who don't. Already aren't already familiar with your work. So could you just you know in the first instance take a moment to you tell us your personal story How did you grow up? Where did you grow up explain a little bit about your background. And then we can get into a little bit about how you got into the fashion industry. Okay Imran. Hi Hello. Thank you for having me. So I'll will tell a bit about my story. Fashion come for me from two different personnel seed I. He has begun as a personal necessity born in Italy of the early eighties and struggling be being so So diverse from my fellow citizen as motivated me to find a way to show people not to be afraid of different cultures and color by instead to see them as them as a chance to grow better and together I know that it might may sound dock sequel but I don't use shown with an esthetic proposals by as a tool to fight again, any cultural agregation, the passionate snowboarder. So you can accept you the beauty without prejudice is a low made to talk to fashion without preconceived opinion just beauty. That's why my work reflects might make you Saggio repeal every page in ways in which to. Culture I white. Republican onside. Probably in the Italy than together. So this marriage are opposite creates a new I bridge, which I've always considered red during my child took. Advantage, and it took me a long time to change my mind. But thanks to many krantz mentor role model and fashion obsolete, which has been my terrapin escape. I've discovered the precious uniqueness of being diverse convene, conveying a new concept of multiculturalism applied to fashion, which promotes cultural sober without ever compromising once on identity, and then there is the second. Reason is the need to put forward and and preserve the multiculturalism which comes from the fact that I've I've always had to actually my mother comes from eighty and my father from Italy. I was born in Rome I spent you years in. And I was March tied at such a great country was known just for some wrong reasons or its way extreme poverty charity yet. Believe me after immediate emergency cases else should come in a totally different form in order to a- long-term action considering that this population of so many cultural resources which would allow them to rise up again on without the need charity action while they need is a someone who decide to believe in their capacity give them the opportunity to work for the Indian plays, their own skill this should be. The the power of fashion. This is a knowledgeable of fashions potential as cultural activity to provide significant opportunities for doesn't work for man and woman around the word. That's why I created my lab founded the laboratory will. Not Show any.
Michael Kors on Why He Left Fashion Week
"Hi this is Imran Ahmed founder and CEO of the business fashion and welcome to the podcast. This week our editor at large sits down with the American designer Michael Kors discusses his plans for Fashion Week September in fact Michael Kors won't be doing a normal show at all like some of his counterparts in Europe including salary in Gucci Michael is questioning. The efficacy of the current fashion show drill calendar, and so he's decided to present in a completely new format launching globally on October fifteenth on the brands social and digital platforms. He talks to Tim blanks about all of this including the confusion around the nomenclature various seasons and how he wants to clean up to. Here's Tim blanks with Michael Kors inside fashioned. Hello everyone and welcome to the live today with told me to micro-costs from New York. Hello Michael Hello. Bear Ray to cedar great to see you and we are doing this instead of actually seeing each other in September. Yes. That's that's that's the God's honest truth. Unfortunately, what are you planning to do in September when we would have been seeing each other? Well I have to tell you long before. The pandemic. I really kept thinking to myself. I'm screeching in next year to my fortieth anniversary. So it. It has been time me to sort of reassess think about things and I and I just after forty years Tim I've seen that I really think the system has certainly been broken. We can't always just do things the way we've done them in the past. I fake. You, know everyone I think realizes that the whole systems mixed up doesn't make sense. So I certainly have my wheels turning about that prior to the band. And then of course, being in lockdown, you really start to analyze and I go back as someone who has been doing this for so long and once in a while back to the future is a good thing. And you know for many decades the New York collections were after the Paris collections ended. In fact, they were a week after Paris ended. And I think we never whenever inundated the consumer with too much information just as in September. Here, in the states, we have Labor Day, and it's you know the world opens up again hopefully, right? At why are we confusing the consumer? And the press with a new season when they haven't even absorbed the one that has just arrived in the shots. Adjusted it makes sense to me. And you know more than ever of course where people are they're not planning months and months ahead. You know we really are living in a time where fashion is very much always has been though it's about the emotion that you're in. So. Are you starting to land your wardrobe in May I? Don't think so I don't know who you are. You don't have a life. So I thought to myself. Well, we used to do this after Paris it allowed or journalists and retailers. And consumer to have a breath. And then. In October, it really became the perfect moment. To show a new collection without cutting off the previous collection that had just arrived shots.

I'm here with Tim blanks our editor at large, and you know usually around this time of year, Tim and I have spent. Several weeks on end in the back of a car. Navigating Fashion Week. And so we thought well. We can't do that this year, but <hes>. Tim, I've still been keeping in touch of course and <hes>. We usually record podcast conversation. Just reflecting on the fashion season that was <hes>, and so we thought well. There's still a lot to talk about so I asked him. To join me, welcome Tim. I am Ron. How're you doing good?

Our conversation today is called where it is fashion. Go from here and I know it's something that's been. On your mind a lot, it's certainly been on my mind <hes>, but before we dive into that specifically you were I guess four months foreign a bit months into lockdown now or limited I, I sort of I date the transitional moment I came back from Paris on Much A. Figure that March the was the day that you could feel the storm, clouds had kind of well and truly Gabid of the fashion so I kind of date everything for much. The I think the last time that we saw anybody actually in our flat was March the seven nine. And said however many citizens. Zana's how how however long it is since we haven't seen anybody. <hes> and everything's being done like this kind of digitally signed the last time you and I saw each other in person was record our podcast for the end of that season and I. You know I don't know. I. Don't know if you remember what we talked about. It was obviously a very strange moment, and we didn't know what was about come, but one of the questions that we were grappling with. was whether we would all look back at that fashion week in and wonder if it was irresponsible for all of us to be sitting in a snuggled up next to each other at fashion, shows and dinners while this. Virus was spreading and what we know now tim is virus was spreading. It was readying actively in Italy and in France just as fashion week was going on so looking back now. What what do you think? I. I wasn't thinking irresponsible I mean there was. But because you know, we live Italy the the day we left Italy giorgione cancel the show. And Joe Digitally and there was a little bit of kind of. Huffing and puffing about that and Oh let's so dramatic whatever and I and then the airport in Milan at night was like. The fall of Saigon <hes>. It was just so crazy. Wasn't people trying to get out of the country? Where was people trying to get out of the county? No because they were panicking about virus necessary. Just it was a set. It was sense of. Some enormous. Ominous! Force? <hes> and then getting to Paris and finding that you know people were saying. Shall we shop wait? You'll have a show in nothing. Really the either a couple of shows cancel. was still you know I always competitive? This that whole moment in World War Two that was? One that was a sinkhole. The phony war before the war actually started. There was moment where everybody knew that was going to be a war, but it hadn't happened, so they were kind of. Suspended animation and that's kind of what it was. Td that this because. I don't think anybody knew it was gonNA. Be As bad as it turned out to be at coins. But still it was a solo. Remember I was in the I. Requirements often <unk> before his show. He said to me. You think this is the one. And <hes> I said well. Do you and I just didn't know that point, and and you know what the weird thing is. Allocating many months later, this March April may June five months later. We still don't know because I. Feel, the feel it. Still the the doctors who will leading out shaping our opinions on this I don't think. Completely show what it is at dinner would. It just it just feels you know when you read. Eddie meteorologists is so excited by this virus, because it is such a challenge and a multi focal. It's just this incredible. Opportunity to delve deep into something that human beings have never encountered before and inside the fashion industry has just kind. I'm concerned is still like everybody else is still not this dilemma. What's going to happen? But I think we do know that this is the one I mean. There may be others at come after this based on what I've been reading, but this pandemic is shaping up to be you know one of those. Collective experiences of complete. Change, yeah, an and I think it's at fifteen million cases now. You know hundreds of thousands of people at I mean I think it's as you said I. Don't think any of us knew back then. How bad it was going to be, but it's certainly. It's certainly shaping up to be much much worse than I think. Many of us expected I. Mean I think when I was talking to a couple of CEO's in this over closing. We thought we were closing our stores down for a couple of weeks. And then obviously that turned into months. And you know the all the talk about first-wave second-wave I am using the Spanish flu as a as a as a sort of. Precursor. You know the fact that the first wave was in the full in there was a summer at the second wave was in the following fool. Could Lord I mean. We have no idea of what we could be looking at in. Another four or five months so. <hes>. Yeah. It's A. It's being A. It's been a challenge I.

"imran" Discussed on Piecing It Together Podcast
"Your random tweet out of the blue. This is what happens people when you have a podcast and I was like yeah I saw this movie and I enjoyed it and I wanNA talk to somebody about it's true I. Finished watching it and I was like. Do I WANNA do a movie episode on this movie? It's you know it's been out a week or two. It's like it's a kind of. It's good, but it's just like a slight. You know just fun little thriller. Is this something I wanna do well I guess I'll put a tweet out there and boom here we are. The same thing. It's kind of a sleeper kind of weird comeback for jgl out no and. I do enjoy these kind of tense thriller disaster. Movies I was like pleasantly surprised so before we get into it, I do like to have first time. Guests on the show introduced himself. What you tell people about you and your podcast and what you do. Sure I co hosts, a podcast called the jock and Nerd podcast spoiler. I am not the Jock and some people that it can be confused. I would be the NERD. My Co host is Anthony. WHO's a millennial jock? I'm a little bit older and we have a third co host name rug boy, who is a puppet, but if you WANNA be pc about it. He's a felt the American. And the puppets speaks the most truth out of the three of US would be surprised. Every cover you know the gist. The tagline is Comic Book and Superhero TV and movie news reviews, and whatever we choose lately. We've been leaning heavy into the whatever we choose sure because of the way, have you know the industry in the landscape of movies I'm sure everyone? Understands but they're still great new stuff coming out and you guys review King of Staten Island last episode. We also reviewed kingstown because it was new. Didn't do something to find something. and Luckily there has been constant stream of new movies. These these ones like seventy, five hundred, for example that I have a feeling that you know I don't know the behind the scenes of what this movie is like where it came from like. Were they just sitting on it for a while? Then it's like Oh shit. We got a pandemic. Let's. Let's put this thing on Amazon. What was the plan for this? I have no idea, but it does seem like we're getting a constant stream of new releases that maybe were planned for theatrical. Maybe not maybe were always going to be streaming. Maybe they were later on down the year. Maybe they pushed him up pushed him back whatever but luckily podcast off plenty to talk about. I think it's a little bit all those things I mean. Look at Tom Hanks putting out another world war movie on Apple TV plus I don't even pay for that yet I. Don't know who has that, but that's a huge get, and that's a huge movie that you can watch at home. Amazing. It's wild. He's not too happy about that though but So anyway seventy five hundred! Let's let's get into some puzzle pieces with this well, we'll talk more about our thoughts on it along the way as we're going from piece to piece. But what do you got for your first puzzle piece? All, right? It's kind of wacky silly one, but it was like gut instinct watching you know how this movie is so technical got almost learn how to fly Goddamn plane. Right pay really close attention. Write everything down. All those really do something. Else seem to know what he was doing that. Just flipping buttons I'm. Interesting note I read the captain the actual pilot who used to fly for Tonga for years. So that dude knew what he was doing, so all the cockpit scenes, the hoping takes places cockpit, but the first thing I thought of was airplane from the sucker brother I, guess more accurately the movies it was spoofing airport, and like the seventies disaster movies like I kind of had that tense. Tension of a good seventies disaster movie that you don't really see a lot these days but I don't know why jumped to airplane. It's one of my favorite com. Yeah, that's for sure. This movie, of course, not not quite as funny. But maybe a laugh to. But but I it really is like totally in that cockpit. The whole time and I think that's that's a big part of what makes this movie tick and you know this is an exercise in tension I think most of all more than anything and. I I think it's interesting to kind of you're you're mentioning along with disaster movies and it is because I mean plane hijacking. Absolutely it is, but to take this different kind of a smaller approach to like focusing in on that cockpit the whole time. I think is one of the most interesting things about the movie. Yeah it's, it's tense and terrifying could almost been a stage play sure way though they did this. I, also read a lot of the movements like they bought a plane. cut it up and and they. They didn't block any of the movements. There was no rehearsal M-. They just let the guys. Improv and the cameraman had to figure out how to swing around. Get Out of their way hot, and they would roll these long takes, and apparently like forty to sixty minute takes and it's just amazing sense of claustrophobia intention in that'll cockpit because. You're there. You're there with him the whole time. Yeah, absolutely well I. Think a lot of that. Those ideas are going to come up in a bunch of my puzzle pieces along the way I, the first one I wanted to bring up and again speaking of that whole claustrophobia and being stuck in that cockpit I thought of David Fincher is panic room, and the idea of just being stuck in this place where it's like. Yeah, you're. You're kind to safe, but you. You know it's not good. Be Stuck in their either and you you are going to. You're not going to be able to help others. You're not going to really have an out in the situation and the only thing that is going for you is that you know they can't actually get to you. In the moment is really the only thing, and and you know just continuing that theme of tension, I mean that is really just like a really. I haven't seen in a long long time, but I I. Remember it being just like a great tension piece. Absolutely me. I haven't seen in a while. I Love David fincher and yet it's that Claustrophobia and that when you're in that situation. Situation you're going to make choices that are going to be good or bad. It's never like you don't know what's going to happen. But along that same line I was wondering if some of our picks may overland. I, had panic room in a list of CLAUSTROPHOBIC thriller movies. It reminded me of gravity There's that movie cube, Ever See sci-fi movie. I've never seen cube. I've heard great things really cool.

EVO 2020 was cancelled
"Yvo Twenty twenty has been canceled due to various sexual abuse allegations. Yvo Is the biggest annual fighting game tournament in the world, and even with the covid nineteen issues plaguing everyone on the planet. The tournament was soldiering on with plans to make it fully online. Earlier this week, however that all fell apart, and in order to learn more about it, I called on Imran Khan to explain everything Imron. Come into the gaming ride home show again for having me Yvo was canceled. And I just want you to give me the full story. What happened? Why was it canceled? Everything start from the beginning, so ego is the biggest fighting tournament in America Kinda the biggest in the world. There's like some discussion about that at this point, but ego is basically where fighting games have been aspiring to for the last twenty thirty years and listening started in the ninety S. This year, obviously because of covid kit have their usual Mandalay Bay Las Vegas big gathering of fighting game players. So this year they ended up canceling I place. Eve Online Eve online was a different thing where the. Mainly, got games together with like Netco like mortal Kombat eleven and them fighting her indie game that was originally based on my little pony, but basically it was A. It has to evolve brand that could stay around despite not being the big mass gathering tournament that they expect over the last couple of weeks. There's been a bigger. industry-wide movement to out sexual predators in gaming and the gaming industry, and some companies have been hit harder than that are with that bubis off for example, but for the most part it's. It's not a huge thing within the FTC. Because the FTC's always kind of had a reputation of like. Being a bit more open with their sexual harassment and it's always like. It's never been to a level of. A mass critical mass. Joey quilter this past week yesterday in for yesterday in fact was outed by a player. Named He's just does mikey. He goes online and is after the tag is crack. Peron but George Taylor. Who is the head of the current? President Vivo who founded it with Tommy Tony Kanaan. was outed for experiences when he was. Close, to twenty, where they were southern golf land, which is an amusement park in l. a.. That mikey accused him of basically. Paying money to young kids to take their shirts. Germany polls mikey related experience where he said quarter. Paid him twenty dollars to see his genitals inside a restroom and bought him pornography so. It's IT'S A. It's a larger thing that when you look at it from the perspective of not a child who just thinks they're having fun. It's real creepy, but what is conditions came out. Other people's Front, also coming out of the woodwork, saying like more finding old chaser people were talking about doing these things, but not naming names, and now that it's out. The floodgates are broken out. Yvonne immediately went. No, WE'RE GONNA put on administrative leave and check this out, so I mentioned Tom. Tony Kennedy before their more famous like they are obviously co-founders of ego, but there are more famous right now for being developers of Product L. at riot games so. They had to step in for this and go okay. We're looking at this right now. We're investigating and seeing what happens. It did not take very long before nether realm. I believe the first one like say. Are Involved with ego involvement in that sense means we don't WanNA game there. We're not going to earn any money towards prize pools. We're not doing any advertising which is fairly big deal. Arguably moral combat was like the lead game for that tournament. Right for the online tournament. Yes, Merle come at usually has a hard time with like the in person tournament. Fighting community hasn't really take to that game too well, but as an online net code game like for example, smash brothers was canceled for Eve online because the net code. Isn't that good, so this is more time to shine. The actual like really arguably was streetfighter as it is every year. This year. Are Not meeting her, but a little bit. After another canceled COP CANCELED IN ONCE CAPCOM cancels gets away from ego. Then that's that's the ballgame lets. Everything goes away soon after main sex developers of them biting heard who this is their big chance to become A. Kind of a household name and if I didn't need community, they cancelled. Bay Namco canceled and ran into that ego are the canons came out with a message from as ego saying? Hey, we were cutting for joy color. He is not president anymore. In the future, he will have zero involvement with the organization this not he's going to not be on. He's going to be on the board, or he'll be the FCC or he'll still kind of tournaments. They're cutting it off completely. Shortly after that they also that announced, we can't under these circumstances and this change in organization also do evil online in a couple of weeks in August. A month or in August? I. Know that screws over a lot of people, but. It seems like honestly the best. Call right now of. You'RE GONNA have to go through with work. That joy has done or you're going to have to. Try It's from scratch. Cobble together in event that takes at least a year to actually set up and try to get together in a couple of weeks. Yeah, I mean they just they basically. Got Rid of the boss in the most public way, possible right I mean it's it's you can't just like recover from that in a matter of weeks. Really Yeah, it's. It is one of those things of a lot of this is. Probably high time for the funding community insert reckoning with a lot of these things, because it's an issue for a number of years, it was I. I don't know if you recall but a about eight years ago, there was a street fight across capcom across Tekken. Show online, and it ended up ending as a result of some sexual harassment claims, and those a big divide in the community about like whether sexual harassment was a just a part of the culture or not and. Stuff like this doesn't help that argument. No I mean I like you, said earlier I mean like. Feels like the right call to elevate it, and as disappointing as it is for Yvo to be cancelled like it's a big flag for like we need to address. This is if we're going to cancel this event because we need to look at ourselves internally and I think I. Mean Hope the hope is that they come out better on the other side. I mean it seems like this is one of those things where. I. Hesitate to say Covid kind of save them but. If. This were an actual in person things still at Mandalay Bay then they wouldn't be able to cancer that quickly an online tournament. Shuttered a lot more easily. The bigger question now is what happens next year.

Jefferson Hack on Why The World Must Not Be Complacent
"Hi. This is Imran at founder and CEO of the business of fashion and welcome to another special edition of the podcast. Today I sit down. Virtually with Jefferson Hack founder Updates Media Jefferson and I have been able to have conversations over the past decade about the role of media. And there's probably no more important time to that conversation then now as we're all navigating the unfolding humanitarian crisis caused by this Pandemic which has now reached more than one hundred and seventy countries around the world with more than four hundred thousand infections and tens and tens of thousands of people who have died so. What's the role of fashion media in this context? And how do we? As independent media companies navigate the situation. What is the impact that we can have during this uncharted time? That's what I speak to. Jefferson up on this special episode. So here's Jefferson Hack inside Fashion Jefferson. Hey Ron how're you man? I'm here I'm happy to be talking to you and Thanks for inviting me. To be on the coast. Yeah no it's a pleasure to talk. You know actually. I was thinking this morning back to my very first interview with you that we did. Do you remember at the Sanderson Hotel. Oh that was a long time ago. That was our first. Theo F live event and ever and we had the conversation and it was rolling out on twitter and people were sending questions from all around the world. And this this is Kinda the same except you and I can't sit together But I'm really glad to have the chance to talk to you. I mean so are you doing you know I'm well. I'm in good health My immediate family are in good health. Everyone's kind of say an isolation my staff in good health has no. I'm a director emergencies taking place amongst the employees or In days media so for that. I'm just really grateful for that I feel blessed and you know as far as what's happening in the wider world and what's happening with Corona Virus Of course you know I mean. Words cannot really describe it. I think I find words quite inadequate to describe what's going on but you know if I had to pick one word. It would be about kind of adapt adopting adopting with of the changing circumstances. That going on so I guess on a personal level. That's where I'm at but yet is going to be a lot to talk about in this Picasso. I'll let you do you know how are you? I'm good also healthy and grateful and taking some time out every day to make space for some meditation and reflection and a walk in the park. Because we're still allowed to do that here in London and you know like you. I'm just kind of grappling with what's happening. There's so many different perspectives. There's so much information which is kind of when I thrive actually making sense of information overload But I find my brain is operating at a speed and a and a intensity level that is unusually high and so I'm trying to make sure I take those moments to pause and stop and reflect It's good it's good advice. I think you know it's the same for everybody. I mean it's as much as if it's a pandemic Susan Info Democ. You know we're kind of overwhelmed with information stotts all the different opinions analysis speculations and You know I think without kind of practicing self care. It's incredibly easy to kind of get sucked into things like fierro high brings. It or doing things that are harmful just to distract ourselves from the reality of what's going on and I think that's really kind of like natural human reactions. You hit on some really important points. I think you know that some of the things that we're really trying to inspire our audience with seventeen million Digital audience across the world across platforms. And you know one of the most immediate thing is is really the kind of you know the mental health awareness and just being able to be effective as a media in being able to influence people's Moods. I mean we can change the way people feel all that moves through the stories and the tone of the stories that we published so no. That was a a an incredible kind of role that media. Compla- in in this time of crisis all type of media specifically you and I were exchanging text messages the other day about you know how companies like ours independent media companies in this kind of global industry. Like what's what's our role and I'm I'm really curious to well. Yeah I mean that was exactly it. We were like texting each other. Because it's all about reaching out out right. It's all about you know being in touch with each other as independent media as a people in the industry who are active who are part of the community of people in in in in kind of in fashion in the UK in globally and an culture. And that's all I've been doing since this has been really becoming more and more of a crisis and I think that's that's what we've got is kind of our connections and are connected and staying connected as a huge a huge part of this the way that we're going to manage to navigate this. Yeah I wanted to start there actually so you know when when did the kind of penny drop for you that this was going to become you what it's become this kind of unprecedented situation in kind of a kind of modern in the last hundred years at least maybe since the Spanish flu and what was your initial reaction of how to manage it as the leader of this this media company possible level. You know I was still a woman fashion week into Paris fashion week. I didn't finish the week up but you know things are becoming much more evidence during that week that did this was becoming incredibly serious and Some of the myths were flying around with being busted. And some clarity was coming to the kind of you know. Health impact that this was going to have an and what was going to be needed by government in order to deal with that so you know. I think it wasn't really till Mellon went into lockdown that it really kind of began to be real and hearing the stories firsthand from clients and friends in Milan about what they were going. Through in lockdown really started helping inform a lot of our thinking at days so that's really the the unprecedented we had in the only way to recognize that it was well. You know that it was that it was likely to get much more serious but you know I think these things are always understood in hindsight and in the moment you know you always think oh well you know it might be contained. There might not come here. Things might not be as bad for us you know. I think that's part of kind of that was part of that was part of my early thinking but you know we. We reacted pretty quickly. I think is a as a media company before the government were telling people to Work will not clubs. We you know we already told staff to work from a meter ready during Paris fashion week. We telling our staff that if it wasn't essential for them to come into the office that they weren't required to come to the office because we wanted to keep people say so. Yeah that's the kind of thing and then when when it really became evident you know. I think our media reaction was one of you know this is a global state of emergency now and you know we have to face a humanitarian health. Disaster that You know we can be helpful and useful in In using some of our resources in some of our media to point directly to that. And we have judy of KETCHAOUA staff. So We'd been working on managing that and managing their work from home situation and then there's a carrying consideration for our audience which we just touched on before and really when we were texting. It was all about kind of understanding with questions we were. We were kind of In discussion about was like. What is the role of of media in this new reality? Yeah what what is our purpose now and I think you know where we had puppies before. Now it's really about focusing the clarity of purpose making sure that the row we're playing in the daily life of our audience is really bringing value

N. gets involved all up I would like US gets involved all this is this going to get anyway the president trump said he was willing to do that well president trump basically said that he will try I mean meeting that he will try and speak to the the Indian government nope the problem is that the way I see it it can get worse the where where we stand today unfortunately I've I feel that unless this summit intervention by European Union by the the United Nations by it the United States I just feel that the things were just go from bad to worse and that is a conversation between Pakistan's prime minister and a colleague Michelle Hussein and this is Newsday from the BBC world service dot story that you stumbled upon yes I did it's in the times actually it says don't worry but at Hey it really count turned gray through stress which is really not nearly enough now which isn't a lot of my friends will get hair gray young I'm not necessarily old people it's just that there might be a little.

Yeah when they really want to get behind something. They're virtually better than anyone else on the planet because they have almost any more more funding than anyone else on the planet. But when you have like you said a half hearted attempt like what they produce with apple plus and outside of m night Shyamalan Shyam odds new series. They've not brought anything else new.

What a decade? It's been for marvel of course undoubtedly would that that But we love the marble moves. We love the Marvel Universe.

That's twelve of movies in three years people. That's a lot of bogeys and you know with the attorneys. Every movie is going to change everything you know and you kind of have to say that with every movie now how DC on the other hand very interesting how they ended this decade they kind of Are Starting to hit up. They're trying. They're catching up. They're starting to fix in the train wreck they've ad hits Zama two billion dollar movies very quickly with a man and the joker joker being rated them taking that risk and it paying off off way better than we expected I think they just announced the birds of Prey Margot Robbie movie will also be R. Rated and this is the one thing they can do. That marvel all cannot is put out an already to superhero movie yet. Unless until they do it. I feel like this is their edge. So you know with the success of like Logan Deadpool. I'm really interested. Where like this adult rated comic book movies go and especially what they're going to do more spin offs and do you more adult nature stuff like that that could be that could be the thing to give them their their spot?

And that is you know, twenty percent of. Democrats had an IT guy by the name of Imran Awan central character in the scandal. And he did all this work for congress had access to all their emails all their, you know, obviously, a lot of our nation secrets and he is an agent of Pakistan. You write about the fact that he had these entourages is when he would go back to Pakistan, literally driving him around is getting money from the Iranians in this whole thing. The book is called obstruction of Justice, how the deep state risks national security to protect Democrats Luke Rosiak is with us. So we have WikiLeaks hack in the DNC emails and Hillary's private server and all of that goes on. Meanwhile, we have this scandal going on now every step of the way as you'll writing for the daily caller. We were covering the story with you. I did we didn't do the hard research. You did. And every time you came on. I was shocked again and again. Let's go through. So they find out that all of these people are double charging most Democrats get rid of Imran Awan, not Debbie Wasserman Schultz. She keeps them on didn't want to be called racist. If I recall correctly, and he still has access to all of this information. Correct. Correct. And it's not all it's not just double charging. I mean, they found they looked at the server logs, and they found that they were logging in using other people's credentials to log as members of congress and check their emails and things like that. And so they knew that this really frightening stuff was going on for seven months, and what they did is they just waited and waited and waited until after the election because they thought Hillary Clinton was going to be in charge. And that is really really reckless. What they did they they knew of an ongoing hack on congress. And they and they let it happen. They literally allowed this guy. Even after they found out a lot about who. We was he still was able to remain on the system of getting congressional emails and information for seven months why why didn't they get? Rid of them right away. Why why wasn't he arrested because then he would hit the papers, and it would kind of derail this Russia narrative because then you'd have to hacks and this one is in Russia. You know, this is what the Democrats do. And it's it's crazy that we hear about some things all the time. And we don't hear about this. That's because the Democrats have successfully managed to control the narrative, and and a big part of that is the way that they control the DOJ. So they made it so that this guy was never arrested. He was kicked off the network, but not arrested right at the same time that Donald Trump was arrest was amazing thing is just in your own personal life, just identify her second or think about for a second your family's emails are being hacked. How worried would you be or your own personal emails or your own text messages? And then imagine letting the FBI no and your government knowing them, not helping you you call it more serious than the DNC hack. Why were these are government computers? I mean, the DNC is a fundraising group. This guy has a track record of just horrible horrible extortion. So first of all, the Democrats, you know, the investigator finds this is the insp-. Factor general of the house of representatives who's an expert in computers and was appointed by Nancy Pelosi ten years ago. And so what they do is they turn on the investigator ANSI Pelosi's general counsel screams that earns his mind your business. You will not investigate these guys. Eventually, they basically frame this woman on ethics charges. They falsely accused her of violating the Logan act this ridiculous stuff, and they driver out of federal service. I mean, they will turn on their own people in a second to control the narrative. How did you? Discover he had to sharia law wives and Virginia while so one of them approached me and said I'm being held against being basically kept like a slave. Iran. Juan is extorting me I tried to go to the police earlier. And then someone's shot at me, and he told me it was him. He tried to have me killed for blowing. The whistle on them. Imran Awan told me that he is a mole in congress has it. You know, when these months he'd go back to Pakistan. How did you know he was a Pakistani official at the same time that this guy's own wife is coming to me is the only person who's paying any attention to this pleading for her safety and. Pleading for me to do something. His stepmother also comes to me and says I'm being held in captivity by him as well because I also tried to go to the police, and he told me that he would have my whole family killed in Enron. It's controlling me with death threats. And so this is a guy who and by the way, both the stepmom in one of the wives. They're being surveilled. He's using his IT expertise to use audio in hidden cameras in in their houses and monitoring what they do you able to confirm all that. Yeah. I mean, there's one of them has pictures of, you know, some of the hidden devices, and, you know, some of this, you know, it would be very very easy for the FBI to to get this information the women were trying to talk to the FBI. And so this woman his own wife is telling me you've got to save the country from this guy. Something has got to be done interesting that that bold Lisa page and Peter Struck well their bones with critical text messages were wiped clean. Now. We find out in this particular case, the police say the democratic caucus server, which was key evidence in this hack disappeared out of the democrat. That's always get away with disappearing computer records so much evidence disappeared in this case for on. The I g said, you know, you've got to look at the server contains so much bad stuff. This is what they're hacking. And then the police ride the capitol police, and I have the Meno it says the the has democratic caucus servers now missing. Then you have other devices that were turned over by first hand witnesses to the FBI and the FBI loses that basically after they fire the g driver out. They turn it over to the FBI because Nancy Pelosi. No, she control the FBI. You know, there's a lot here, and it would take to prove at all I guess in a big court case. But at the at the core of it, you have the server logs which show they made on authorized access to congress. You have these comp- financial documents, which they're cooking. The books in congress to steal computers and send it over to Pakistan. Those documents are falsified it takes two seconds to prove those things and magically they send it over to the FBI to quote investigate for two years. And by the end of two years documents that plainly show wrongdoing somehow no longer show wrongdoing. But it serves you kind of distract you say in the book. One of the wives calls the police says she's being held like a slave. And that she was shot at as you just said, and he said to her that he did it. How did the FBI come to stand in her front door to make sure she can't go to court? You may say why? So they they never actually charged this guy Ron along with hacking congress because if they did that's when it goes to trial, and there's testimony and so he got Hillary Clinton lawyer, former aide Hillary Clinton, and they start meeting with the prosecutors behind the scenes, and then the prosecutor start basically calling witnesses and threatening them and saying don't bring evidence. And then, you know, eventually, they put out this statement saying basically quitting him giving him immunity and saying he did nothing wrong. Now, the evidence shows that he did this thing. And of course, the media runs wild and says, you know, Jeff Sessions has debunked conspiracy theory from Trump, and none of them have the attention span to see that documents prove that, you know, this is completely false. What the FBI said and the whole time they knew it wasn't like they did. This certainly didn't knock down his door like that. It's Roger stone. They didn't do search warrants against this guy. They didn't they intentionally didn't interview anyone what about when the computer was left in the phone booth. So after he's banned from congress, he takes Wasserman Schultz is laptop and leaves it in a phone booth at midnight. And again, no one's gonna tell us that ever happened until Wasserman Schultz pops up in a hearing yelling at the chief of police there's going to be she wants the computer back. She was yelling at the police people at the time we have the video. Absolutely. And and there was so many things like that. That are in this book that went on behind the scenes in in congress. And it really just shows you how they do these things. I mean, when you hear that, you know, they arrived at this decision not to charge Hillary Clinton, or you know, how the fusion GPS steer all this set all the wheels in motion to start this whole Russia collusion thing. This is kind of tracing from the beginning the foreign entity you believe he's an agent for Pakistan and that he has access to forty four Democratic Congress people's computers. That he's taking and having access to their emails and sensitive information, and that we know about it. And that they successfully navigate through the deep state Justice department FBI and convince them not to investigate. What is a breach of our national security would not only not investigate? But a lotta times they knew of evidence, and they made it they made it go away actively, and it was really a tremendous concerted effort, what level of the FBI will are we talking about here is this again like in the case of struck and page and McCabe and Baker and call me or one of the things about this book is really names names, and it talks about the deep state, which I think of as being way down there. It's not the figureheads who actually have much less control the government. So this book names names, and it says which FBI agents just regular old special agents threatened witnesses did all this stuff it talks about the prosecutors. I don't know exactly threatened in the course of your investigation, you know, not not physically, but a lot of other people. People were his own wife was shot..
