"Hello, welcome to The Ohlone Show. I'm your host, John May Ohlone. In this episode, don't have regulars, because reasons. As for our guest, she's from a phone number that I can't say for legal reasons, and she's currently in Melbourne, Australia. And she is an author. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Liv Arnold. Hi, thank you so much for having me. I'm so excited to be on your show. Yes, me too. So how's life? Good. So it's about 2pm here. I just took my dog for a walk. I spent a long time riding last night. So yeah, it's been good. Very good. And besides what you've done this afternoon, is there anything else you've been up to this week? Yes. So I've been doing riding sprints. So I usually ride about 25 minutes at a time and then I take a break. And yeah, so that. Yeah. And then I've been doing that until all hours of the night. So that's been good. And besides that, I started off I started doing jujitsu and Muay Thai a few months ago. So I do that about five days a week. All right, then. Very nice. So how many books have you written or yet to be written so far? So I've done three books. So first one, Law and Disorder. That's an enemies to lovers type romance. And that's so based on people that are neighbours. And I'm not too sure if you have the TV show Neighbours over where you live. But I got inspiration from the TV show Neighbours because they seem to know what's going on in each other's lives a lot. And they are actually really good friends. And I thought that would be really cool to bring that into a story because I don't think a lot of people live like that in this day and age. Like I don't even know what my neighbours names are. So, yeah, I thought that would be cool. And then I've got two other books, Etched in Stone and Stepping Stone. They're both part of the same series. So Etched in Stone is the first love romance and there's a billionaire romance. And then the second book Stepping Stone is a second chance romance. And the main, my main character, he has PTSD. So I use my experience with anxiety to bring those traits into the character.

Here's ABC's Alex Stone in Los Angeles. Getting stopped by the police can be nerve -wracking for some people. Others become angry when they get stopped. the Now LA County Sheriff's Department is teaming up with a new app called Safe Stop. When you get pulled over you tap the app and it connects the driver to the deputy who just pulled them over and they can video chat before the deputy approaches the car. The idea is to open dialogue before the deputy with a badge gun and uniform approaches making making some people nervous or angry. The pilot program will be in place for about a year.

You got to be on a phone, by the way, if you're trying to do that on a computer, shit's not going to work. You know, the other night, speaking of that, Alex, the other night I was in a space and a seeing on spaces his on his PC. So there's been some kind of upgrade. Well, you can see it. You can see it. No, no, he was joining. He was. I mean, you know, I don't know if he's lying or not, but I mean, I don't know why he would. He said he was talking from his from his PC. That sounds made up. Oh, they're supposed to be rolling that out. I just haven't heard any official actual admission that that is like a live product yet. Yeah, it was it was in a trad fi space run by run by Jaguar. So, you know, I guess it could have been, you know, a liar, but I just don't know why somebody would lie about that. And, you know, they said they were on the they're on their PC talking, you know, and and everybody was commenting. They're like, oh, wow, no wonder you sound so much better. Yeah, I was I was kind of messing with you a little bit. Yeah, I want to dump it. Peter, you're just totally lying. I agree with Alex. What up, y 'all? What's going down? Oh, wait, I just joined the space on my desktop and it looks like there is a mic button now. Well, what? It must be just rolling out like a soft launch to do. I hate all of you. I hate all of you. You're still you're still lying, Peter. Just kidding. I love you, buddy. The best what in the community is banana kit? What? What? What? All right. Good morning, everyone joining us. Welcome to Cafe Bitcoin episode four hundred and seven. Our mission for this show is to provide the signal in a sea of noise to seven billion people on this planet. Why there is hope is this bright orange future that we call Bitcoin today. We're talking about the latest news in the Bitcoin market. There is a bunch later, second hour of the show, we have Brian DeMitt. Coming on. Orange pill app. Jujitsu master, big can energy guy. That's going to be cool. All right, let's dig in. I saw a tweet that was actually kind of sad and I wanted to read it, get some thoughts, get some comments on this. This is from I liked to lurk. And he goes, it's time to stop hoping and just sell my BSB, delete this account, try to return to normal life. I have to accept that I was a complete fool using my savings to buy one point one five BTC for seventeen thousand eight hundred U .S. dollars and then swapping it for twenty five point five BSB. The 20 I have left equals seven hundred and twenty dollars. It's brutal. Did you put that in the nest, Alex? No, I just copied a picture of it and stuck it in my show notes. Why do you want it? No, I just I didn't I didn't hear everything that you said, so I wanted to read it because I was doing something else. Well, the summary of it is this guy got wrecked climbing Mount Stupid. So did he was he around when when when BSB came out and then he he converted all of his Bitcoin to BSB? Is that what happened? No, this sounds like it was after the fork because he bought one point one five Bitcoin for seventeen thousand eight hundred and then he swapped it for twenty five point five BSB. So he fell for it like they conned him. He was one of the victims. There is, I guess, the possibility that he bought that Bitcoin on the way down 2017. The reason I was asking Alex is because there was an interesting Portland HODL had had some really interesting comments on in a space the other day about a guy who was talking about, you know, what happens if there's a fork, you know, blah, blah, blah. And the comment was, well, if there's a fork, you get to own, you know, both of the underlying assets. You get to own whatever the new fork is and you get to own the whatever is the old fork. So there's really there's no risk. His point was is there's no risk to the individual if there is a hard fork of Bitcoin because you don't have to as long as your your Bitcoin is in cold storage, you don't have to convert it. And then you if the new fork turns out to be the where the social where the where the social consensus goes, then you have you already have that asset. So there's no risk involved in that. It was just interesting. The only the only risk is if you sell the wrong one. Well, you don't have to sell. That's the point. You don't have to sell either. That was it. That was Portland's point is that there's no risk because you don't have to sell.

"So it's just a longer process then multi and he was at the start very challenging for me to sit on the mats with people. I coach upstairs on the boxing studio. And sit on the mets. And be the newbie. Who does not know what she's doing it all. It was just a process off here. I am again trying to learn something that. I don't know but i want to do that. I want to be good at this thing. That what makes the difference. I think is that i just tried harder and more and try to be on the mats a lot and it worked i just. I don't know. I just love it. What do you. What do you think you know the fighting in general and spending time in in a fight jim. It's a very mild thing. Like the gyms are largely male dominated every every jujitsu g minor. We've had it here without jitsu program. There's always no conflict but they always like tensions and stuff that arise between the minority of females in the majority of miles and there's obviously size and strength differences and then you've got add combat into that mix as a form of training and it's just you know there's always stuff that comes up and things that need to be managed. Have you found that sort of journey as know as a woman so happens everywhere and in every jim and we had the academy was running it as well and that was part of the reason we launched a fierce female program. It was just to be able to attract this woman. That would never come in if it wasn't a female only environment but then the goal is to get them just to transition to be able to feel confident enough to just train in a normal class so that happens in any kind of martial arts would say and other stuff too but i'm probably more martial arts For me was different to be honest Because if come to jim. And i see that like most of the people on the mets are chicks..

"But it's part of the game and that's what it is but yeah it's been a. It's been awesome to do that. Sometimes i look back. And i look at a forum like this may. Yeah it's me and it's almost like this to two persons like one is is out there doing and the other one's just observing and saying you crazy. Yeah it's awesome. How how what you can actually do do you. Do you still have desire to compete in thai boxing or any kind of striking sport type boxing. No because just the commitment to it is is very big all the fight prep and all and also the injuries you can get from it out for for little bit like coaching and training. It just puts you out for a bit My legs usually always take too long to recover fighting with that sheen. Pads is a different thing. Like you really get boyne damage and debriefing and my legs always take too long to recover. tyke like are you talking wakes lunga. Yeah like to be able to kick again. Yeah yeah just like the so sore. Imagine and lucky enough like never broken a noise or something like that To good for fighting profile see might happen with jujitsu. But then i decided i wanted to find a mate. So that's how my journey she's started. I thought okay. I had the sephardic had multi. I had the boxing. I an awesome boxing boots as well. And then let's do. Let's do a. That'll be cool to finding the cage. So i started grappling because thinking the same thing so that would be actually the only thing i still have on the back of my head is. Maybe it'd be good to tick that box. Maybe we'll be good tick that box and it will be not like is different than than motai because of the grappling option. You have while you're fighting and a lot of people would just strike a lot enemies becoming law striking sport but because a lot of them aren't coming from a background jujitsu they coming from striking background and adding jitter but to me. Now i think both aquatic like i feel like both are so present in me that i would definitely should go to the ground in a cage to finish with a sub so dot com could could could happen could happen but i started jujitsu because of that reason i wanted to get in the cage and i thought okay let's start grappling and i did not understand what happened to me. I just fall in love with it. I like this is so cool and after maybe three months i just decided okay. I'm competing and i did my first contradictory jittery and i did not stop since holy shit. Did you start that at the academy. Yes yeah. I started at the academy. I had a few classes here. And there when i was still striking a lot and then i got injured so i had a long break Had a knee injury. I had a long break. And when i got back i decided i'm gonna have a break from training to really focus on jujitsu and i'm going to be on the mets every day rather than striking and things just changed from there because i gave more time to juicy when you start starting ju jitsu or starting monty is very very different. You get into motor lot faster you feel like you learn and evolve understand more what you doing lot foster in ju jitsu. You're lost for. Yeah and you're like.

"jujitsu" Discussed on BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast
"But maybe there's there's no more than that but are there any other way that you can say that jujitsu has impacted your real estate. Oh yeah i. I think it's definitely countless ways. Jujitsu is probably aside from accident. Been the most defining thing in my life from the people i've met to the values it's taught just about hard work and dedication but i think the principle that you get for. I got from jitsu in real. Estate is when things are tough. Finding a way to stay calm analyze the situation and figure a way out or exhaust all options until there literally is no way. Like if i'm going to tap out it's going to be right before i'm about to go unconscious. I think that mentality and tenacity has helped me huge business because again every single day at some point in the day i am being put in bad positions in business. You know this one wants to back out of the deal. This one doesn't want to do it alone anymore. This one's mad at this one and it's a matter of like okay. My initial reaction is like okay. I'm mad this person. I just spent thirty sixty days in this deal. I wanna fire off and it's like no no no you're gonna waste your energy stay calm. See what they're gonna do. You work around that you wait for them to give you openings and you're gonna find that little in and you're going to get in and you're going to get back on top and you're gonna win. It's how bad do you want. And i think that is just taught me countless countless lessons in business for emotional maturity and just finding a way out and looking for solutions instead of taking the easy way out and on top of that i think just being around so many professionals like we mentioned a chris wideman and seeing guys. That are just champions. That you train next to every day and seeing that there's really no substitution for just time and hard work and if you put it in you'll get results and i think that that has told me a lot from the people around me that have encouraged me to keep going.

"That's interesting. Let me know when that person has gone into a lab and actually proven it right. Like i don't like this is not the place where i need to spend the rest of my day figuring out. If you were buddy can can read my mind. But there's a way to communicate that. I think i think it does to sound like you're completely closed off to ideas as opposed to saying like this as opposed to saying that. There's there's a lot of evidence in support of this but you're still open minded to other ideas like there's a way to communicate that it's not necessarily even with words it's like it's even that joe rogan energy of it's entirely possible just that energy of being mined curious like kids are like this is our best understanding but you still are curious. And i'm not saying allocate time to exploring all saints but still leaving the door open and there's a way to communicate that i think that that that that people really hunger For let me ask you this. I've been recently talking lot with john. Donna her from present. Brazilian jujitsu fame. I don't know if you that is in fact. I'm talking about somebody who's good at what he does and he speaking somebody who's open minded there is transition is for the longest time and even still a lotta people believed in jujitsu world and grappling world. That leg locks are not effective in jujitsu. And here's somebody that inspired by the open mindedness of dean lister famous to him said Why do you only consider half the human body when you're trying to missions. He developed entire system on this other half the human body. Anyway i do that. Absurd transition To ask you because you're a you're also a student of brazilian jujitsu. Is there something you could say how that has affected your life. What you've learned from grappling from the martial arts was that is actually a great transition. Because i think one of the things. That's so beautiful about jujitsu. is that it. It does what we wish we could do in every other area of life where we're talking about the difference between knowledge ignorance right like like there's no room for bullshit right you don't get.

"Get that variety and now we're just expanding it you know moving to have kids classes and you know ultimately as we get more people look to have lunchtime classes and really grow it into a pumping though jujitsu program. It's a it's a cool thing. What you know with that. Like having different coaches and like naturally age college is going to be imparting. They're kind of their game their strategy. This sort of belief system for people who are like the sport of digital is or the art of jujitsu is so broad. There's so many things that you can work on you. Could you can never truly master all of it How does that work when you have You know who is giving a set of information and then on another night that same students coming in. There's another coach and they might be getting. The information is necessarily conflicting But how does that play out so what we did was. He sat down a little while and under your guidance and suggestion that we get together and and how you know. We have our monthly meeting. We sit down and we discussed what's going on in the program gradings or that kind of thing and we have planned out twelve weeks on the weekly seems and they kind of course each other in the way that we might have working close god we also have a week which is passing closed god and so you get both sides of the coin and what that means is they get exposure to different techniques and approaches to the same situation. So here's an opportunity for that person to work that game. I mean when there's plenty of free rolling. Save chances for them to do whatever game they want but fundamentally with the fundamentals kloss on the is that structure there and then when it comes to the more advanced students the instructors afraid to kind of wreath in whatever direction. They won't relevant to the questions of the higher or more experienced students. So i think what we've done is we've set up a structure.

"Exculpatory about chauvin himself at this point but it's Yeah i mean we. It could be quite dramatic. If based on some policy that the as yet unexpressed trial. We learn that he's not actually going to serve any significant time perpetual close on this Real world instance hear how do you view the prospects of a resolution to that case. Listen i've been asked I did a small interview other day regarding the asked me in the in the in the realm that i am an expert right which is martial arts and is a lot of experience with neck restraints. And the question was posted me quite simply. Is it possible that the neon the neck of the central topic of discussion there in the in this thing. Is it possible that the knee on the neck caused his death right. There are many other variables. But you know to. What extent was that possible. In my professional opinion jujitsu founded again. I'm not the medical examiner. How much how much drugs he had in his body and his system but purely speaking from the vascular neck restraint perspective. It is absolutely possible that place in the knee on the neck for the extended period of time that was placed by mr chauvin. There could cause someone to could enough obstruction to the blood flow to cause someone to lose consciousness and then the the continued pressure after conscious unconsciousness was met could absolutely like any neck restraint. That is that is held after someone loses. Consciousness could lead to someone's death. So i do believe it could have played a part. I don't know what other factors were at play. I don't have all the details but whether or not you know he's. He's convicted of that or the exonerated. For some reason that we don't know yet to be determined but my my belief is that absolutely you know knowing what i know and people say oh because on the back of the neck. It wasn't a neck restraint. It wasn't plugging the karatas. Nope you can plug the karate indirectly by placing any on the back of his neck and the front part of their neck being so flush lee compress into the ground into the pavement. Which was the case there than that. Compression happens indirectly even so..

That's what he put all his effort and faith in that electric. I get a better position and then try to get up, you know, like I don't it's like he was letting guys get into deep.

He didn't finish the job and then he took him down and then that was the rest of the fight from that on. Yeah. I mean if I was Kevin sign a contract if I any any any wrestling skills.

How long is this is this amateur wrestling or we supposed to be next martial arts where you have Brazilian Jujitsu Judo and on the rest of bulshit mixed in there where you fight off your back, you know, you get a submission from your back. I mean, yeah, this guy obviously is his Corner bunch of fucking morons if they can't teach him to avoid it take down or wage. You're able to take advantage of the situation because they get saying that he is a black belt in Jujitsu and I like where is it? Where is a black belt in Jujitsu? Like you could be a black belt Jitsu, but when you drink. Be the waiter either way down. All right. Another fight that happened was Julian Marquez vs. Sam Alvey Sam Aldi.

"jujitsu" Discussed on BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast
"I don't care this guy's not that interesting. Look you're trying to talk about that. We're on vacation. Stop talking about real estate so anyway totally totally all right. So let's let's start here one hundred degree by the way. Yeah like even if you already own a home. This stuff is important because it may change the what the next purchase are gonna make. It may change how you view money in general and so i wanna start. The question is what are some ways that the primary residence. Somebody lives in will long-term affect their wealth in life like twenty thirty forty years down the road like how does they're like. Why does the house. This is the point you guys make over and over in the book. But why does the house make such an impact long-term. Let's start with you mindy and got. You just had a little bit of that answer. But i'm gonna go deeper here. It goes back to the things that you harp on over and over on the this podcast. Do you have to buy right yet. Jujitsu and you have to buy right and that applies to your primary residence as well as any investment you make if you pay too much for your primary residence a mortgage payment is at the very tippy top of what you can afford. How are you going to save. Where does your extra money go nowhere. Because you don't have any extra money because every dime you have is going to your mortgage payment. And i think that when people are first starting out. I'm going to buy a house. How much can i afford. What is the most amount of money i can part with. And that's not the right question to ask especially when you're a first-time homebuyer but when you're a home buyer of any type if you want to be able to grow your wealth you don't put all your money in one basket where all it can do is sit there and do nothing for you to sustainably invest in real estate. You're are either going to need to generate a large amount of monthly savings with which you can use to put the down payment and finance the properties..
UFC Fight Night: Derrick Lewis demolishes Curtis Blaydes
"Let's go right into this thing. Let us discuss the heavyweight division in the ufc because it was on full display last week. It'll be on display this weekend as well and next month with the title on the line but let's focus on ufc vegas nineteen and derek lewis's incredible ferocious and absolutely vicious knockout of curtis blades. In the main event after a really strong opening round from curtis blades lewis delivers one of the nastiest knockout. You will ever see in the second round coming through with the biggest main event upset in the. Us's michael bisbee became. The ufc middleweight champion. A you have c. One ninety nine knocking out. Luke rocco network going to begin with you kind sir. Nice and easy your reaction to a massive win for derek lewis less than a week ago surprise. Surprise i guess is where i would start out. I picked curtis blades. I thought he would be able to at least take down. Derek lewis enough to win the fight and lo and behold. He didn't take him down at all. So that was probably actually the biggest surprise about the fight What wasn't surprising. That derek lewis after being down in the first round after losing that second round blades was doing really well on the feet. And then derek lewis just did what they're glues does. Big are uppercut. Is the fight so relatively shocking shocking result in the sense that derek one. I was fairly confident that blades. Who get it done. But not so not so surprising that derek lewis got another highlight reel nocco assay. We kind of got your instant reaction after the fight on saturday on the post by now you've talked about on the side but now they've had some time to let it all sink in and spoken about it on on different platforms. How big was this win. For derek lewis in the in the grand scheme of things that heavyweight. I mean anytime you win in the top five especially when the heavyweight title is only is within less than a month of your big victory. It's a big thing. I just think. Derek lewis is one of those fighters that he said it himself like the title is great but he's fighting for that paycheck. You got the bonus. You got bulbs paychecks. He's back taxes. Which is obviously still reeling from the massive blizzard. So i'm sure he's going to do great things with that. We saw what he did when the hurricane happened. Driving around saving people so For a normal fighter getting this big win on a big platform so close to not just the title fight probably another a contender fight with jazzy. No rose straight and cyril gone. They're going to be like. Oh this is great for my career. I'm looking at it from the perspective of derek. Lewis wear awesome. I got both of my paychecks and fifty thousand dollars more so yeah massive night for the black beast again. Prize fighters derek lewis through to be one of the most reliable prize fighters on the ufc roster. So yeah ten attempt forms across the board from the heavyweight contender to sort of build upon that jose. Is it time to look at derek. Lewis is not just a fun prizefighter but a serious threat to the title. It's not like he wasn't before but people always view. Derek is this you know fun. Follow on social media this hilarious guy this quote machine who can land knock on at any point of a fight as watch the sport at all outside of his fight weeks doesn't really care about titles but it seems like he's putting together now i know he's added some pieces to his team. You saw lauren. Murphy's husband joe in his corner who's excellent jujitsu coach in practitioner. His own right time to stop looking. Derek lewis as the funny guy with the with the best social media. Game outside of darren taylor. Moore is a legit threat to st bay francis and gado john jones. Whoever is in this division. I would say derek lewis has already the best twitter follow third. Darren tools jason lewis at this point. Because derek lewis is winning fighting and being funny darren till is only doing one of those things. So i i would say derek lows. Of course you have been taken seriously if he touches your jaw you have to take him seriously because you're probably not going to remember when after the referee pulls him off of you so i don't know the answer to this because we haven't seen we don't know we don't know that's like saying oh francis in who is putting together all of these this team to make him a complete fire. All of his fights are like less than two minutes long. So we just don't know for all we know. Derek lewis is the best gogo planet practitioner. It all of the ufc. We're just never going to see it because at the second touches you you die. So if you fight someone like steep bay That is obviously a master game. Planner i think that's better. That's that'll be a better gauge of derek. lewis skills. because we've seen him fight dan mccormick. Who is the definition of a complete mixed martial arts and that wasn't a great night for derek lewis. Yes he took that on like Real short notice to only a month after he got that beatdown he did win. Let's not forget volkov. Put it on their clothes until again. Derek lewis touched his jaw and killed a man on live television. So yeah i don't know. Tb all say. I know that's a cop out. But i don't think anyone knows i think everyone will agree with.
"jujitsu" Discussed on Entrepreneur on FIRE
"One reason. Why fire nation. I love talking to. Steve is because our our brains really are similar and we really think like a lot of ways. One thing that you've broken down are five fundamental questions that every aspiring icon must be able to answer. And i just love and we can get super clear on specific numbers with these questions. So take it away. Break these five down soon to become an icon in your niche. Definitely five fundamental questions as you have to be able to answer and the first one is we alluded to this a little bit earlier but let me just a bit deeper into the first question that you have to be able to answer is the question of what conversation do i most want to be. Part of. what conversation do i most want to be part of an. And here's how i would encourage you to think about this. Which is if you go into a room where remember when people used to. What's that thing called. Oh that's right gathered together. Remember that will allow us to gather together gatherings right so there was a point in time where that happened. Well assuming that happens again at some point just picture yourself walking into a room and there's one hundred people in this room. There are ten tables of ten people. And let's say you can sit down at any of those tables right. Each of those tables has a particular conversation. going on. one table is talking about. Maybe health and fitness. One table is talking about technology. One table is talking about money when table is talking about etc etc etc etc. So of all of these tables have topics so to speak going on witch table. You gonna sit at right because you can't sit at all ten tables okay so number one which which conversation. You know what what's going on at the topic. What topic are you going to be like. Oh yeah. I love this particular topic okay. So that's the table that you're gonna sit at you're gonna talk about that salaciously that does the table and talking about podcasting will. That's a table that john would sit at the table that i might sit at right because they're talking about podcasting now to further that point. How do you get to the point. Where you become the hub of the wheel so that people who are interested in podcasting somehow connect to your work so that somehow your name is in that conversation without your even sitting at the table and so john let me just give a concrete example here. because i'm a living example of this. And i love telling stories. I know you do as well so what i knew early on being someone who loved podcasting and i started my first <hes>. Podcast <hes>. back in two thousand nine with our first episode a reinvention radio and but never really gained all the tracks. And like i'm so jealous of you jail on what you've been able to do man because you i started around the same time and all but you just blew up and i just. I couldn't get that same traction. But i've always had a love for the medium and i didn't want to give up on the medium so head to try to figure out if podcasting is the conversation that i most wanted to be a part of and i want to become that hub of the wheel if you think about a bicycle and how the spokes kind of to the center. What could i do to become that center of the wheel that all the spokes connect to and that's where the idea for podcast magazine really was was born from. Was that desire to be a part of that conversation for all the spokes of the wheel to connect to what we're doing but at the same time recognizing that i wasn't going to be a part of that conversation based on the merits of my podcasts. Or even our live events alone at it was good but not great. But i didn't want to give up and so that's just an example there of okay. How do i become that hub of the wheel. How do i become clear on the conversation. Almost want to be a part of and again. Podcasts used conversation. How do i become that the wheel and ultimately that's what we found in terms of our success and being a part of that conversation when we're not there through podcast magazines so just a concrete example of what that actually looks like an action fire nation love specific examples that hub to me is such a good visual that i love just being a picture and just see how that works not just impart podcasting and this is working in every industry in every niche in every vertical steve keep on rolling yemen. So the second fundamental question you really have to be able to answer to become an icon in your niches is really getting clarity on. Who are the people that you are most to serve. Now say that again. Who are the people that you are most compelled to serve and one of the things that you'll find as you go through the exercise of really honing in on who those people are is that it will really just put a using your terminology here and it really put a fire in your soul like you'll wake up every single day just knowing that you've got work to do to help these people who are literally waiting and praying for you to show up in their lives and so it's not always easy to figure out who your most compelled to serve. But what i will tell you is that one of the easiest things to do is to start by looking in the mirror right because you may find that a lot of your own experiences like could teach course on what it means to move from the states to puerto rico right just like it just takes it for granted. I mean he just did it. No big deal just picked up and moved and then of course twenty eight million people followed you keep the money. They make steve. That's why but the fact is you take it for granted right so it's just one of those things where it's like. Oh this is a no brainer for me okay. I understand how this works. I understand that makes more sense for me to be here and it's beautiful and and an an but to the person in of the let let me just throw an expression out here john that i love that i love. Which is the to a second grader. A fifth grader is a god right. So so what. Does that mean if you think back about what you knew you were in fifth grade. I mean he didn't know any kind of laughable but if you were in second grade and you were looking up at the fifth grader like man. I will do anything to be that fifth grader to walk the halls to you know. Have that confidence to know this. That the other i mean. I'm actually picturing that fifth grade. You're talking about right now. When i was in the third grade on this team this fifth grader to meet was the coolest person ever ever paid. Good money you'd be like here. Take my lunch every day. Just to say hi to me but the reality is you don't need to be you know a phd. You're an mba letter. Saviors to really be able to help people you just have to help them. The trial and tribulation brain damaged. The you had to endure to get to where you are so as you look in the mirror you can look at all of the things that you are your father. Your mother you're a business owner. Your cancer survivor. Your podcast or whatever. Those things are and there is a process that you went through to get to where you are and perhaps that would be one of the places to start all right rather we got a lot to get to so let's go onto number three four five yup number three. Where do they gather right. So once. you understand the people that you're most compelled to serve the fundamental question. You have to be able to answers. Where do they gather right. Because ultimately you want to take a look at if you think about it in terms of if i'm trying to acquire the most highly targeted leads. Do you want to be trying to shoot at bats in the dark with with a shotgun or do you want to try to fish with a big net out of a barrel where these fish right so so the reality is you obviously want to be fishing with a net and a barrel in. That's what we're talking about. Here is your most ideal prospects. The people who are literally waiting and praying for you to show up in their lives are gathering somewhere so figure out where they gather because in that makes everything else so much easier as you move on to the number four here which is identifying what their biggest problem is is that easy to create the answer to number five which is what is the solution that i'm going to provide. That solves our biggest problem. So what conversation who you most compelled to serve. Where do they gather. What's the biggest problem with solution. Can you provide
"jujitsu" Discussed on Talk Nerdy to Me
"Yeah i. I trained very hard all growing up and i competed in fact i thought that was gonna to be my profession I competed quite a bit Almost turn pro The timing didn't line up quite right i. i had a match line of in guatemala.

HIV Under the Microscope
"I this week there was cause for celebration as a covid. Vaccine became a regulator approved reality in the uk. All the time we've been waiting and hoping for the day when the searchlights of science would pick out invisible enemy. Give the pala to stop the enemy from making us ill. And now the scientists have done it and they used the virus itself to perform a kind of biological jujitsu and in fact because of that jujitsu the uk has become the focus of world media attention as the first western nation to formally approve corona virus vaccine for public use. Nevertheless some are questioning. Why britain's been able to move so fast according to the uk education secretary govern williamson. Speaking to see it's because we live in great britain. I just reckon we've got the very best people in this country and we've obviously got the best medical regulators much better than were french. Arab muslim belgians have much better than me americans. That doesn't surprise me at all because we're much better country than every single was okay but if that is actually true then what is that. We're better at in reality. The buck stops with a body called the nhra there. The medicines and healthcare products regulatory agency and down to them. That we've been able to approve sizes new coronavirus vaccine in record time and to explain what's involved what gaps still remain in our knowledge. And what is happening with the other major vaccine contender. The one being made by astrazeneca. His gino martini from the royal pharmaceutical society. Any new medicine has to be reviewed and tested the mitchell ray. The job is to inspect review. The data that's being generated so foams physical companies have to pay the testing. We'll clinical trials. Testing will phase one face to face free with effectively. The the medicine in this case. The vaccine is tested in human volunteers and subjects which representative while the population people. You're gonna begin the vaccine to create these clinical trials. The data's collected and the whole basis have put together a dossier and that's been reviewed by the shaarei in this case. What is the damage of being working in real time with manufacturers review the data in real time so that's why we've been able to get an accelerated. Is it as simple as that. Because what some people. Think quite legitimately appointing out is that normally. It takes ten years to make a drug or vaccine and get that to market. Which means by the time it gets there. You've got ten years in some cases of follow up from the first time a person was exposed to that drug to the time at which you begin to marketed. Here we've got ten months so we don't have that long term insight true. What's happening here. Is that the nhra actively viewing people being executed. So there's already assistant quotes called surveillance. And so they'll be muller shaking people. Boxing aged just in case there are any adverse events alba to understand. The nhra is a very very good regulatory agency. Got great expertise in looking out biological jokes. Vaccines whom the signing. What data is needed sensual. Quality and safety and of course efficacy. Interestingly though the nhra have approved this agent for uk use but the the european counterpart for the hr a have not approved this more. Broadly across the rest of the eu and other countries in the eu. Haven't done what the uk's done. So why have we got that difference. And if it's good enough for us why is it not good enough for the rest of europe. But these things do happen. I mean differences do occur in interpretation with with data particularly when you have those as just the s but again a while alluded to before is immature About could lead robertson so a lead coordinates when they were part of the mea for all the you took applications like said sixty percent of new medicines being less than ten years or so the amateur were coordination. I got great experience in this kind of area and a great network of keeping lead his experts. Who can give council on this data so you know. I'm i'm fairly confidence. That amateur are happy. With the safety and efficacy and quality than out of oxygen. There are some gaps in our understanding and in the data we've had generated so far though. Aren't there for instance. No one under eighteen has had the agent tried on them so they won't be being vaccinated pregnant women. Currently there regarded as a risk group. But they've not been included intentionally in the charles. They've been actually excluded from the trials. So how we gonna deal with the fact that there are these individuals or groups in the population that haven't been actively explored as time evolves. They will obviously investigate. Those subjects will be evolving. The plan with the mitchell ray in finding house was the best way to include those people.

But of course, it began with our mutual friend and also popular PODCAST Gas Josh. Wait, skin who is known you for a very long time. Indeed, he has a quote in fact that is Impreza praise of your book chess for success and it goes as follows Maurice Ashley. Has Been like a brother to me since I was twelve years old I know the man I know the competitor I know the artist no, the teacher there's a lot of train for us to cover a lot of Nixon crannies to explore but I thought we would begin with Maurice the Jamaican and I was hoping you could describe for us your beginnings and we could start with the with the genesis while yes I was born in Jamaica. Island. Not the area of Quaid's and I grew up there. I was there until I was twelve years old before I came to this country. But probably, the most significantly got happened for me in. Jamaica. Was the fact that my mother left Jamaica to come to the United. States, when I was two years old, my brother was ten. My sister was seven months old and. Opportunity to come to the US, she couldn't bring all of us at the same time. Cheech only bring herself. And her leaving was really quite an event in our lives. My father wasn't with us but living with us at the time. So we grew with our grandmother. and My mother would send. down. Stuff supplies to Jamaica Whether v Foodstuffs Flour and rice she sent him in a barrel and she said, well, she said notebooks in armor sending like a softball and a glove, and of course Jamaica. Nobody played softball baseball nothing. So I threw the glove to the site, not knowing what to do with it and use the softball as a soccer ball. Got Pretty warned down already quickly a really turn into a softball very quickly to that. But. We just being raised by my grandmother she was a teacher by training. And so she would teach us so much as young people. So we were really well prepared educationally because of my grandmother and she was sixty four years old at the time of my mother left the imagined a sixty, four year old having had seven children for own. Now suddenly taking on the care of her daughter's children at that age when thinking about maybe slowing down and retiring enjoying herself. But for the next year, she took care of us and I was really a hugely significant part of growing up living there. Until finally my mother got the resources in the paperwork through green and finally bring us to the United States.
Refuting Ben Shapiro
"Here's how he starts. His most recent show Republicans brought up in the Senate a police reform bill and the police reform bill didn't give Democrats everything they wanted. For example, it did not outright. Ban Choke chokehold. It said that departments has to take a look at chokehold and decide how they would be applied, and the federal government would make its funding contingent on particular procedures. Put in place with regard to. To choke, hold now. They're a bunch of Democrats who think the chokehold should outright ban because either they are mischaracterizing what a chokehold is. There's a difference between a chokehold and a and a mission hall, or they're trying to deprive law enforcement of a tool, the sometimes require in order to make a situation more quiescence. Okay, hold on so right there the difference with a choke hold and a submission hold. What is he talking about? I know he's hinted at being a part of Brazilian Jujitsu. I have to. You know that some submission is called. It's called a rear naked choke. You're squeezing the carotid arteries of someone to reduce the oxygen flow to their brain, so yeah, if you have your bicep on the right carotid artery in your forearm, pressing into the left side. If you, do it properly it safe. The problem is most police. Officers are not trained to do it properly. You can watch the training. You can see them fight people in public I, personally have been a Ju. jitsu Jim where cops come to fight. They do not understand the actual and breakdowns of Brazilian Jujitsu on how to properly apply a rear naked choke. They don't do it correctly. They will crush your larynx. They stop your breathing. That's not what choke is supposed to do. Okay, and let's be clear. Clear to that. That I think just stopping. The colts is also misguided even on the Democrat side I think it's misguided I think it needs to talk about bodyweight on. Someone's back the ability to breathe while you're leaning on. Someone's back as fixation we need. We need to ban all sorts of things like that, but I don't think it's fair to say that. They're mischaracterizing a chokehold from being a submission hold because nobody's preventing cops from putting someone in an arm bar. Let's be clear about that. That as opposed to being forced to use deadly force in a case where somebody is resisting, arrest me, and this is really one of the instances in which officers you see, an officer and the officer is trying to put somebody into submission. Hold read they're trying to. They're trying to deprive oxygen to the brain, not the personnel, or at least put the person and more quiet than state. The alternative to that is the person continuing to thrash around struggle. Maybe grabbed. The officer's got bent so often talks in. In absolutes he is so black or white absolutes. You're going to hear him today. Say things like every single time. It's not true all they want. It's not true. These these are Straw man after Straw man after Straw man of the Democratic position and I WANNA. Be Clear I'm not a registered. Democrat I'm an independent I consider myself a liberal I, don't I don't say I'm a leftist and I'm certainly not on the right and here lately. I can't even say have even been in the center I'm. Left of center, but I'm a liberal if you have any of credibility. You should pay attention to rappaport rules, and if you don't know what that is, look up Dan Dan. It read his books and or Google rappaport rules, and the very core of reports rules are. If you don't fully understand someone else's argument, you're not yet ready to create an argument against him. You should be. You should be able to state their argument back to them in a way that they say. Wow, yes, that's the way I feel and I. Wish I would put it that way once you can do that to someone then you're willing to make an argument against them. But these blind strokes of of all and and absolutes are just crazy, and that's not the alternative. Ben If you walk into a situation assuming I either have to choke you or shoot you because I'm an occupying force here to make the streets. then. Yeah, you're going to be violent. Either way these yeah, the choke holds pretty. Damn Nice when you put it that way. That shouldn't be the cops job.

Starting a BJJ Revolution with Andrew Smith
"Andrew. Thank you again for joining us on the show and sharing your story and you know some processes particularly Brazilian Jujitsu another stuff. We'll get into and just help another folks with your perspective to kind of make that progress of thank you. Thank you Kevin. I'm excited to be. I think that what you've done so far has been a really good and I think it's important to break down Particularly the process aspects. You don't really hear very much about that when you're listening to a podcast or learning about Things though the process part in particular is something. That really appeals to me especially as every business been involved with as grown over the years. Yet I for the impetus for this which is really I rebranded. I had another pockets called between the slides and then honestly the more folks. I talked to. What so if you're like when you have to explain it a lot you're let me make it more obvious. But it was largely focused on that for the world that I came from a public safety and incident management special events and then project management. It's super process heavy Sometimes too much sometimes informal and everything in between and in particular as you mentioned eighteen months in was still very new but totally getting into more of the the understanding of how incremental of process that is of like every little roll little thing. Little tweak little move and it's kind of mind blowing even from being so new of how much depth their is. They're part of an episode. Let me do kind of like a book. Report podcast version of of one variation and You know from grappling to the modern Brazilian Jujitsu and the seventy different variations. So I was very interested to see all those different flavors of history and people and you know cross discussions and things and So for you and I and I've looked up some your background and and heard some of this from when I listen to you on on dirty web. What radio which was cool so folks if you haven't listened to that check that out as well But your process in about you. Are you from the rich Mary? I know you've been there forbidden went to vcu. Are you originally from Richmond? Virginia No actually grew up in Columbia South Carolina so about Twenty five years ago. I just wanted sort of a change in a ended up in the Richmond area. Then it's funny I've been enrichment for A little over twenty five years now on. It's still doesn't really feel like I'm from here. You know there's no other place that has ever traveled to where I think it's quite So so Front and center. When you're if you didn't grow up in Richmond. You're not really from here. You know and it feels that way to me still like imposter syndrome or something. It even in the area. It's it's still it's shifted now. I grew up in Chesterfield South side. Now it's kind of the old old area and I remember just a richmond thing of someone at intern. I think I had when I worked for the state And she grew up in Henrico. Which is the place to be so to speak of and and just talking about. Oh you grew up in south side like it was such an old place and it was so different but the economy and the change and everything of all the different areas around Richmond Annex. Pretty NEAT but but yeah it's There's definitely a very kind of Richmond. If you're from there you're kind of all in as well One thing we do share Richmond wise as we both went to vcu I'm a back to school. Use My job building stuff and went to an for you starting That's where you got into judo first-rate. That's right yeah. I wrestled in high school I wasn't amazing but I got a lot better my senior year. I was actually starting to get pretty good but then I graduated high school in there. Just wasn't there wasn't wrestling at the college. I went to which was university South Carolina. Okay you believe it or not. There wasn't a wrestling team there at least in the nineteen nineties and I was really bummed because I sort of fall in love with grappling Wrestling you know Dan so I mean. I wrestled a little bit with the high school kids. After the season you know went to a few freestyle wrestling tournaments but I just wanted more wanted to keep going and there wasn't anything there and I think ironically there was a judo club. But I didn't think much about judo back then When I was in South Carolina and then I moved up to Richmond and in nineteen ninety seven. I started training judo at the judo club and at vcu and it was just. I was hooked right away. It was a special time for for martial arts special time for judo. Insofar as there was a lot of sort things that were coming together at the right place at the right time we know the UFC. We have to go back in time. You have been on on the air since nineteen ninety-three but nobody had seen it like literally. Probably fifty thousand people saw the I see in the There was another one eight months later or something and that's the sort of the way it was so is this sort of a niche underground to a degree but people that were involved with judo They knew about the UFC. They knew about Grappling they were reading. You know Martial arts magazines and stuff like that like black doll magazine was sort of the the leader back then if you were interested in even grappling. Because there wasn't there weren't industry specific magazines out there so I think that communities were a lot more interconnected. You had a lot more sort of a Geek condo type people involved with grappling people. You know judo injury. Jitsu were much more closely related than they sort of art today Which I mean as far as martial arts go. They're very very similar as far as like the way. The Arts are practiced in the culture. It's it's pretty different. Judo is a lot more formal. You just is very very laid back. You know tends to get rid of a lot of aspects of the tradition and so Maybe it's perceived as incompatible to a lot of a lot of people but I was really lucky at vcu It wasn't really like that. There were people coming over from you just schools throughout town and When I started competing in in Jujitsu Before actually started formally training in it. I'd had experience at the Judo Club. Traveling around Training going to seminars stuff like that. But no consistent regular training in. That was possible back then. It was possible because of the particular circumstances that I had to actually do pretty well when I competed in some of those arenas because I had you know. Of course judo Experience Judo Club but also good grappling especially for the time we had people. He wrestled before but also people that were actively training in Brazilian Jujitsu. And I think that was uncommon back. Then so it's sorta how things got started for me. When I moved to the Richmond area was really really lucky. Fell into the right
UFC featherweight GOAT debate intensifies following Max Holloway's dominant UFC 231 win
"It was a bit of a debate online. But who's the goat at featherweight and some people think it's still Josie. Although some people think it's max Holloway. I'll save that debate for another time. I don't really want to get into it. Because no one's going to win every side just going to pick who they think is the right answer. But here's one thing. I can say there is a real possibility that max Holloway can become the featherweight GSP only the more modern risk taking version. Here's what I mean. What may GS PG? Well, first of all again, these are things that could happen. I don't know if it's going to happen. But one probability, you should probably consider is that like if you think about what may GS piece of special, right? It's probably a combination of things is an incredible skill. He was a national icon. He defended his title a number of times all those things would have put together this larger package, but when he fought what did he do especially in that later stage of his career? He used basically his skills to define the terms of the fight over and over in a very controlling stifling way. Didn't take a lot of damage at the end there the Hendrix fight or a couple of others notwithstanding. And that was you could make an argument that some of that was a little risk averse, but the point being smart you kept his title, and he did legendary things, but the key. There is a he was able to impose a very dominant. Encompassing fight defining way of managing his opponent. He took a fight that is normally a very chaotic thing. And then controlled for it. We had Gracie on last week. And I asked him what defines the jujitsu of Brian Otake. Everyone's got their own style. Right. Like like gosh. I mean, Andre Calvo's Jiu jitsu is not the same. As Keenan Cornelius is not the same as the Mendez brothers is not the same as I mean, you pick it right? Goes on and on everyone's got their own little style. But his was that in the middle of chaos. He can find a neck, you can find an arm. He can he can bring something. To bear down upon it. Which is true. If I was really smart observation, and by the way, Brennan will take it. We'll be back. He will make he will make a reappearance in remind you of why he was so highly valued as a potential threat to max Holloway's crown down the line after heels and everything, but here's the point that ability to control the chaos, max Holloway does the same thing. He takes everything away by making the fight on his terms through distance through use of the jab all the things I mentioned in the hour if he can cut the weight enough and stay for the wait long enough people keep saying oh shit. If I next Nate or Tony or Habib or Connor it is not that. I don't wanna see those contests. But I'm telling you, we are missing something if we deny him the opportunity at being the sentinel at the guard for one Forty-five because he can be the exact same kind of thing. Doesn't matter. What skill you bring? Are you a high? Octane jujitsu specialist. Who's got a ridiculous chin who can has developing striking. He has an answer for that. Are you the potentially the guy who was the guy the best ever not division? He's got an answer for that. Or are you a wrestle boxer? He's got an answer for that. Are you whatever he's got an answer for all those things if you look at his rise with you want to compare it to Aldo's or not look at the different kinds of fighters. He has faced has faced all the different kinds. He could face potentially at one forty five. No, which is why some kind of a rain there is necessary. But he has fought a lot of different types already guys who are wrestling threat guys who are power threat guys who are volume threat guys who are striking threat guys who have veteran experienced guys who have who are a little bit undeterred by experience and just sort of go for broke..
