"The upside also for folks like others that you can go to A demographic like a millennial demographic that has research has shown. I think essentially to this. Mit saying that money will spend two and a half to nine percent more of their disposable income. If you can showcase that your products are sustainable. That you're doing the right. That the right. And how do you know reasonably that. It is sustainable. Kinda hard to now. And we're we're making easier easier. And so he could do at palm you can go into soy. You can go to cocoa cotton and other things. So these are these are some current use cases that were supporting and then also some future use cases as well using these new capabilities. That we're developing abs- absolutely Antastic in this stuff is not available to the general public but what level do companies start engaging in something like this. What would be the minimum ticket. Prices is like the minimum is quarter million dollars or a million dollars to actually fire. Something like this up you could you. We generally start anywhere from like twenty five to thirty five k with the customer. Yeah we like to grow them to kind of low to mid six-figure customers we have some seven figure customers as well. But the as i call it. Let's go hit singles and doubles with some of the world's leading companies in a consumer in automotive distribution materials and petrochemicals As well as in supply chain and then grow them you know showcase what you can do step by step deliver value deliberate advocacy deliver impact and then just grow those accounts. And that's just a that's a great way to build a business and that's what we're doing here unless it's absolutely fascinating. Thanks for sharing it with us and continued success. That you're hiring for some positions now. I understand yes engineering. Solutions engineering core engineering. Anything around engineering especially in computer vision data science. We've got. I think the best team in the world and we want to continue to build on top of that and then basically smart people that to just make the world a better place. We'd love to talk to him all right just typing or orbital insight jobs into google. And the you'll see the lincoln page with All of their job listings. They're they're hiring alive.

"You can use electro-optical satellites radar. Base satellites geolocation our f signals infrared signals. And said we we kind of put that in and say what's the easiest way to generate the best insight per client and then deliver that to them and it's really hard but it's really fascinating from an engineering and design standpoint. I just realized like if you think about what's happening with the weird in china and those images. I wonder if during world war two and hitler if we had known in seeing what was happening in dhaka or auschwitz etc. We could actually. Your firm could have documented like look. Are people getting off trains in these areas. They're working series. And these are the actual conditions. You know You know intervention could have happened earlier. i mean that. That's a big one but definitely and again at the end of the day someone me the other day like who would be your ideal customer and we work with like i said fortune five hundred companies and ngos and charities and defense and intelligence and whatnot but i said if we if we do we can do as a firm at the end of the dance might take ten years. Might take wander might. My ideal customer is a starving child in central africa. How do i provide capabilities that you may have that farmer. That says i'm gonna plant that second crop or you work on irrigation system so you can basically get aid and get food and get infrastructure and shelter to people literally anywhere on the planet and we've done that we've done a lot of good and that's how we type get up in the morning we're going go sell to our commercial customers government customers but really kind of what gets us excited the end of days. How do we make a huge impact. Virtually every person on the planet it sounds crazy and perhaps as naive As well have you found or have we foward satellites islands and by extension perhaps even civilizations that we previously did not know about as far into the twenty first century as we are now. I don't know if we've picked up identify gatien of new types of populations we definitely picked up change with respect to land and also changed with respect to water for example One of the first. Al goes i came across or algorithms that we had developed using computer vision was water detection and i thought what a fascinating. What a fascinating capability that you could go and analyze get electro and you could basically image that and take that and calculate and basically get estimates of what is the water levels in in places like lake tahoe used that same example when we went down to houston and said there's a whole bunch of water in places where there shouldn't be and it's this level and you can use that for other other use cases so we have picked up degradation of land Identification of new types of of areas and then change like what changed. Did we see in these particular areas and and then you put it into the hands of your customer like. Why is that happening. We're just there to present. This is what's happening on into the earth and then our business decision makers humanitarian organizations can take it from there the How much of this is used by people to make investments or to train the stock market. Or you know to determine. Hey there's so much activity at sports or there's a lack of activity at these boards. I'm going to trade stocks in this country or that country and i'm going to predict gdp based upon how many containers are being taken off. A ship is. That's what we hear about this data is used for. Is that actually a major use case or not It is a major use case in. It's actually partly what drew me to to orbital. I spent about twenty years of my life in that industry. And so i helped build a couple of companies to help address those types of questions or those types of challenges One of my previous companies was mapping out supply chain relationships both upstream midstream and downstream. So who are suppliers of different types of components materials to go onto products. And then. how do you ship those products to end consumers and we tied it into kind of this big interconnected network. We had loads of financial services customers. Use that For equity research investment banking some trading. What you are seeing more and more financial services firms. They're saying hey how do i. How do i use these different sensors. To kind of embed into my workflow we do work with them. goldman sachs as an investor as well as a client of ours. Deutsche bank royal bank of canada Royal bank of canada's come out with some fantastic research that they have really smart analysts but then they're using these new types of insights numb to showcase what's happening with commodities with equities supply chain. One of the first pieces that they did at the beginning of covet was to go in us our aircraft attacked her and count aircraft movement across china. And you thought why would they do that. China was work was first happening. And they're trying to get a read of aircraft activity as a future indicator of the spot price of jeppe hill and so admin ever been done before and they just put it out in the report clients. The nass more and more questions said there are. There are a number of different use cases that can support global finance. It's an area. We do have lots of customers there but we also like to think about instead of the person that might be buying and selling a stock. Let's look at that company itself you can. We help them improve their operations. Can we lower there. Can we lower their risk of operations. Can we help them. May be fine more customers. Is there risk in their supply chain. Is anybody in their supply. Chain may be doing things in that that cotton suppression in china that they're not aware of riots. Like know your customer know your supplier and we can do both of them using these tools. So that's fascinating. If a company that was in apparel wanted to make sure that the cotton was ethically sourced did not from slave labor They could you would actually know. Hey listen this factory that you're using gets deliveries from this location and that location. is Providing cotton from yeah absolutely in one of our marquee clients that we work with right now. We love working with them as is unilever and so that's a big big consumer products company and they came to us and said look. We have this problem We wanna be able to get first mile visibility into some of our suppliers around palm oil. We started working around palm oil. I didn't even know what it was ten years ago But can they came to us and said the first customers. Actually the world resources institute that wanted to detract deforestation and one of the biggest contributors deforestation historically has been palm oil production palm plants. And so you see now. A lot of the world's best companies are investing in the same. We wanna make sure were ahead of this and we are an ethical sourcing partner and a sustainable sourcing partner especially around things like palm and so we work with them. Developed using our technology and our algorithms to help with that first mile that when people are collecting Pom pom fruit. And they're delivering that to a unilever facility. Is it certified sustainable. They wanna make sure we're doing the right thing that the upside for the environment is just exactly that people are operating stable way..

"The coast of texas got a lot of family. There might start jimmy. Our founder went to ut and so We looked at that and said look. We're geospatial suffering analytics company. We should be doing something about this in a period over weekend. I- called my lobbying firm and dc. They're also were based in texas and we said we think we've got a way to track the the water extent and damage at hurricane harvey across houston and it wasn't just from that humanitarian side of things. But it's like we overlaid oil storage tanks and other other infrastructure said based on our analysis thirty percent of those tanks under two meters of water. You've got huge environmental problems developing here and we actually took that to the governor's office and said we'll give this w for free. And maybe use that for your emergency response and other other applications. We've done some some work supporting cal fire. Unfortunately it's really close to where. I live up in northern california and oregon and Other parts of the west coast looking the movement of of fire. Not just using satellites by the way we've also done anonymously kind of geo location tracking of groups of these mobile devices to look at. What's the impact of these events is the disruption to these events permanent. Dc people leaving areas and not coming back Do you see how what the impact of the economy and the infrastructure We actually did. Some work with the governor's office in california. The early stages of covet with Was people being compliant with shelter in place and so when you said the the beaches down in southern california. That people were violating some of those those shelter in place. We actually helping kind of track that to say. Hey you've got a problem here or you've got a problem in this part of california and did some of that work with google and some others. So it's a developing. Unfortunately it's a developing area. I would want to call it a line of business but it's It's evolving rapidly If you and. I said five years ago we had some really bad fires here that this would have been happening five years to today. We probably have said that's not going to happen. But it is in the next five or ten years on top of that so we want to bleed into that. It's the big humanitarian in pieces. As part of our mission is a company of how do we. How do we develop the technology. Take all the really smart engineers. We haven't company and and develop solutions. Ideally solutions that you can put into the hands of folks that are either fighting these initiatives these issues. Whether they're firefighters our first responders or policymakers. And say this is what we see kind of on a long-term basis in the beauty with the access of all that content that i mentioned. We've like twenty five years of history so you can go back into time and say what's changed over the past five or ten years do to either economic infrastructure development Or kind of the environmental impact as well to help people take a better decisions on a go. Forward basis could be deployment of of relief funds deployment of development funds. Really thinking about where you should build it not build And so there's it's it's like. I said it's an evolving Donovan issue will be at the front of that. I'm really interested in humanitarian stuff. because having watched the whitacre's in china and the internment camps. A lot of our information came from satellite images. I wonder if he were part of that or You could speak to what you're able to towel about remote regions where maybe humanitarian Crises are going off. Yeah we've done quite a bit of work. We don't like to get into too much detail the stuff that we've done in in that part of the world we've definitely our engineers and And computer vision engineers have come in and done some some research on that and you look at things like building change detection like wire. Their new buildings being built around a prison camp. That's kinda weird. Yeah wise their growth buildings around Areas that doing cotton Cotton development so that area. By the way i think it's something like seventy percent of the cotton coming out of china comes from that area. I mean it's it's like it's a humanitarian problem. Business problems and environmental problem and so legal problem huge at the end of the day. It's not some of the stuff is not the right thing to do. And we're not trying to take a political position something. We're trying to basically leverage our technology to help people do the right thing like we said what's happening on into the I i told a story to a colleague the other day when i was actually interviewing orbital i've years ago they came in and said We work with the world bank in the world resources institute to map poverty and like how the heck poverty using geospatial sensors and so they were tracking activity in sri lanka. Then you could go over a village and you do things like are there any new roads. Have we met. Have we seen growth of their crops. Are there new buildings. I aged people build houses to see more cars and trucks there or dc less and you calculated and go okay. It's gone up or down by two percent. And then you do the region and then you do more of the country and then you do the entire country and you use this as basically tracking the growth or decline of poverty. Either at a national level to hyper local level super cool and the second year we did it in mexico and when we got the contract as we're gonna take a bath on this one because of all the imagery to take in and all the aws processing compute. But it's like it's the right thing to do and we did at the next year in mexico and so that was actually used by some of our of our clients to deploy different resources and track where they should be focusing on where things are getting better. But it's interesting about that as you think about. The last couple of centuries we did surveys to figure out populations we'll did site visits to figure out economic editions. And now we're going to be able to infer that you actually probably know the population of towns better than anybody or you could be able to calculated right just by people. Being insert weather conditions. They would be out in the streets. A certain percentage of them and you relation you could but we tap the breaks on out of it jason. We're very very strict about privacy. We don't track individuals we don't We don't want him to. Yeah no. it's just about really about traffic patterns like if people are walking around the city. Knowing how many people are walking over a bridge or using a bike lane you could not demise that data somebody on a bike so no bike usage in san francisco. Which is what we're doing. That's a great example of we like to anonymous that kendra higher level and say not about a particular person. But this is what we see from kind of time series basis up change and for a variety of different purposes. And that's again with the example that you just use you could use satellites for that..

"Let's say scanning authoritarian or communist country. You can. there's no international law stopping them from doing so so planet labs throws up a bunch of satellites they can look at china they can look at saudi arabia. Look at north korea. There's no laws against that. You're up in space and there are certain right. There are certain restrictions. I don't know the specifics right off. Hand another some restrictions about State of israel. There's some restrictions there there are restrictions about imaging for deployed. Us forces and so the the constellation owners have to follow those in so there are some minimal restrictions on that. But yeah. I mean basically if you're going over certain territories across africa or the middle east asia america for that matter They're being edged. And so it's it's basically all of that imagery that's coming down is both the beauty in a little bit of the beast it and that's where we come in to say. Hey let's let our software process a lot of that and be able to get you to these insights faster now when you're collecting these insights. You're doing it with a decent. You're saying okay. We're going to look at this region. Relook at troop deployments airfields. Whatever the examples were discussing. Has anybody ever looked at the data. That said let's just look for anomalies in other words. Here's an america. We know nothing happens here and let us look for something that shouldn't belong here and then surface them and if we have done that what have we discovered during that process. Third there's different. There's commercial applications. We can talk about humanitarian. We're actually doing some really exciting work. with with a cb part of d. h. s. basically rescuing people on the southern border and in finding activity in an area where we haven't seen it before and and sending some of their to go rescue a an actual individual which allow. Yeah wait a it was just to be clear about that On our southern border here in the united states department of homeland security is watching. People are making that border crossing. It's incredibly dangerous. We have satellites going over there and we can tell them. Hey look there's a group of people you know crossing the border at this location that you may not be aware. Generally we're trying to avoid tracking people per se. We're trying to do things like object detection. Change detection gone quite honestly. The people focus on folks coming over the border. The really ugly thing that's happening is a lot of people are dying. Each due to exposure that they're making long track across the arizona desert many of them don't make it and so if there's a way that we can help with the rescue of those individuals were all in due course on. There's a lot of illicit drug activity going on as well which is bad for everybody drug dealers of course and so we. We basically approached this saying with the previous administration presidential administration. It said hey. Why don't we build this large. You know physical wall and we'd put politics aside. But i looked at it and said hold it. Why don't you use advanced geospatial technology. Save the government about six billion dollars. Sure basically use kind of a digital digital call geospatial search and rescue To monitor certain areas across that border using environmentally friendly technology. That's really easy to use as well and and so when we think about that maybe satellites would be secondary putting up balloons or putting up. Drones does the state of the balloon technology. You know we we hear about that. I don't think many of see it. Is that occurring on some regular basis. And if you put up a balloon what is it. looked like. What's the footprint of it. And and what is the apertures it. Cover one hundred miles thousand miles. It really depends upon the package. You know the the google folks had been developing loon actually sherline down last year. We sad to see that because it was a really phenomenal package that you can basically put on different sensors onto. It's super low cost compared even to a satellite quite honestly. I'm you can direct your you where you actually want to visit for monitor in that particular case so it's very targeted. Not just to say cover fifteen hundred miles. But it's like no cover fifteen miles right here And then be able to get that insight down to decision makers faster so There are some that have been more successful than others. We've done some work with With this customer whether doing launches out of back of a pickup truck and so it's yeah it's really cool to see it But our ultimate focus is look at the sensors look at the technology but ultimately how do we deliver better impact for that customer at the end at the end of the day. If it's a is it. A sheriff's deputy down there as a dhs agent or cb piaget to protect life and use us assets more efficiently. Has anybody thought about. We talked about the wall and what it would cost to build an entire wall. And how people to use things like waters and roques to throw worrell walls historically like who've been through this before with castles and whatnot. Yeah imaginary line here. We go against walls. We come these. Are i got an idea exactly. It's like watching the lord of the rings this wall but setting up a series of drones or balloon permanently or semi permanently whether it was quad. Copters military drones balloons. You literally in my mind. I'm just thinking of like a a series of tethered balloons. Cross the border. How many balloons would it take. That cosby has anybody ever considered that kind of a proposal of creating we actually. Yeah it's actually how we started this entire process site called one of my folks in the dc office. the day. After christmas and i was watching all the news and say never going to build a physical border. While i'm like this is not so. We put together a two page summary document. We send it up to you. I think speaker pelosi's office and said hey. We think there's a better way to do this. Low cost higher impact. And you can get it out to to the to the field much much quicker And that was less than three years ago and that's one of our main customers here because they look at it and said this isn't science fiction this is very real and that's when you think about what we do as a company it's not just a like i said work with satellite providers but it's working with different geospatial sensors high them together. Fuse them together. Into kind of more cohesive Kind of view of what's happening on the ground make it easier to use processed and delivered to customers as fast as.

"You can't it sound. It's great for television But there are. There are international regulations around commercial satellites down to the granularity of what can actually be produced that some of the highest resolutions around fifty centimeter resolution. Something like that. You can pick up a car. pretty clearly. Buses trucks aircraft a railcars infrastructure roads and whatnot And so we. We've leveraged a number of those constellations. They have more medium resolution. Which is it's a bit fuzzier. It's got a bigger footprint can be used for things like land use classification now when you do get into some of these newer And other geospatial. Sensors like you mentioned drones. We work with high altitude balloons. We're working different aerial assets. They may fly at a lower a lower level and get higher resolution We've actually done some testing. Recently with one of our partners it gets down to fifteen centimeter resolution And so that can be used for again. A number of different use cases i will. I will qualify that though that we are very strict about privacy. We don't want to be able to go in and just do do things that people should not be doing because it is. They're very powerful tools. Very powerful sensors need to to the right way and so we very very strict guidelines on that but also mergellina relations that are keeping you from seeing that What the actual hardware is capable of. The hardware can actually see much greater detail than you're allowed to have access to. Is that what. I'm inter no for the most part. That's what they they'll get down to that level like some of the biggest building thirty to fifty meters cinema centimeter resolution. Satellite can cost several hundred million dollars a copy and so when you talk about some of the newer generation. Like you're coming from the folks plan and have a really exciting sky set platform. That's coming out much lower footprint in terms of cost and also really phenomenal resolution so the economics or compressing in terms of cost the precisions. Getting better and revisits are also getting better. So it's really a win win for both the industry as well as the end customers to be able to get access to not have to pay quite frankly at king's ransom to get access to it. How much time do you spend integrating a bunch of different software products together at your company. Let me guess way. Too much time well owed do is here to help..

"Using these tools and they need to use versions of them. That have been modified. So if you compare china Who's dealt with us and how the us is dealing with. This is just a staggering difference. Let's imagine just as a a thinking peace imagine imagine the people making tick-tock in china did what instagram did. They found a study that one would have three. Teenage girls had worst feelings about their body image issues after using instagram. Imagine like the chinese caught those ceos. They caught zuckerberg without information. Roma sorry They would be in jail. They'd be reeducated. They would lose all their personal wealth. And this was internal research by the way from instagram. Like they commissioned it. it wasn't like some outside their own research And as a response to the welsh reporting on instagram the senate subcommittee for subaru section has requested a probe into facebook for more information. That's going to take six months. Maybe a year. There's going to be a bunch of Hand ringing and nothing will get done. This is the key difference booming a democracy versus authoritarian country but we should look at the authoritarian countries. And say why are they doing that I believe the reason. They're doing it because they want to have. Their next generation be more effective than our next generation at technology their careers the companies. They build the military tabled. It's really that simple folks now. Another study that is worth noting in july of two thousand nineteen. The university of montreal published a study that measured the impact of four different types of screen. Time on self esteem and depression in over thirty eight hundred adolescence. The four types of screen time social media video games television computer usage The study found that lower levels of self esteem were associated with more severe symptoms of depression. Okay that make sense. If you feel bad about yourself you could start feeling depressed. Study also found that increased time spent on social media watching tv playing video games and using the computer all resulted in a decline in self esteem. You have right there. I mean the the connections are very clear. The stuff should not be used In a free kind of way people should not be able to use it unrestricted. Okay now back to the bbc article. Ccp crackdown on talk. You started back in two thousand eighteen. When china's regulator started seeking ways to limit children's time online due to rising cases of adolescent nearsightedness. That's fascinating too much time on your phone affecting your vision. And according to the bbc article diene arrival chinese social media platform began testing quote anti addiction measures. This include testing child locks and experimenting with limiting the amount of time spent on these platforms both of which now exist in the app data noted in the article originally source from the agency. We are social indicates. That chinese citizens spent over five hours a day online including two hours on social media. So i think we're we're gonna come to is remember. Apple started tracking your screen time. They may three or four years ago. They started giving your reporting. That was to let people know how much time has spending a line and the consumption patterns. Now that we have that now that we have all this data now that we see what china's doing these companies facebook specifically are going to need to take the lead on this they if they are not absolutely held accountable. They are so deranged facebook that they were floating. The idea of creating instrument for kids like in the face of everything. I've just said how insane and drainage selfish and greedy must zuckerberg massari and the whole crew over their be that they would actually have the audacity to suggest kids under thirteen. Be using these tools. That's how selfish Self centered in greedy. The crew over there is they're doing it for the money and it's disgusting and they should be ashamed of themselves. What they need to do is they need to put a time limit on instagram facebook. And all these tools. And what i would suggest is they put a counter in the top rating corner. When you hit thirty minutes it should flash. You've been on for thirty minutes. Would you like to take a pause. Press here yes and we will turn off your access for twelve hours. That's every thirty minutes on a platform. It just tells you that and you get to select it and say yes. Don't let me use this for twelve hours. Whatever it is and if somebody's using it for longer than an hour more maybe two hours and they're in that kid group. Yeah turn off and if it's ten pm we're them short. Turn off right hours. I think if you know this is really bad for you. Starting to put tools into instagram. Telling people how often they're using it would be the next logical step. Will you do that instagram. If you know that this is affecting young girls in such a harmful way. Sorry why don't agree to put just a simple timer in there. That gives people the feedback for how long they using it. Why wouldn't you do that. Sorry if you care so much yet. i don't hear anything cricket threat. They will never do it. There too greedy. Sorry it's too. Greedy sucker is too greedy. It's not enough to be worth tens of billions of dollars. They need to get that extra billion or two. I mean it literally is about money for them. That's that's my feeling on it They can correct me. If i'm wrong but putting proactively if if i've read that research and i saw i was having this kind of damage i would say that's it. The new age limit is two years old. Whatever to start somewhere we if it was thirteen. I make it fifteen and was fifty and i go to sixty whatever because people should have some personal freedom when they're adults we're talking about children here and then yet turn off if somebody's sixteen years old and they're using it. Yeah it gets turned off at ten pm. It gets turned off after x. Number of hours.

"That's od dot com slash twist. Hey everybody got a big news day for you. I bite dances rolling out a forty minute per day. Time limit for kids under the age of fourteen on their version of takht by of course produces tick talk in the united states and The chinese version called do gin and they will limit children under fourteen from using the app to forty minutes a day. According to the bbc the bbc article notes that do yene has created a youth mode. Which will apply to real name users under the age of fourteen. Here's how will our kids can only use it for forty minutes a day. Kids won't be able to access the platform between ten pm and six. Am effectively you know. Stopping kids from showing up at school really tired And then youth mode Will include new educational content such science experiments in museum exhibition. So let's take a pause for there and think about what china's doing. They're having a free for all with ted talk in the united states. I'd leave to talk in the united states. Psi ops like it is a psychological operation. Now i sound like a conspiracy. There as i know but if the chinese are willing to put millions of liters in jail and they're willing to shut down companies and they're willing to take over hong kong and threatening to take over taiwan. These are a serious group of strategic thinkers from the top down who are now saying. This is how our country is going to run. This country runs the people at the top. Make a decision. Typically one person sometimes group people and then everybody obeys those rules and so for them to say you know what kids should get. A good night's sleep and kitchen exposed to science and museum exhibitions. This tells you something about how they're thinking about their kids. They're thinking about their kids as their future resource and here in america. If you may have seen this wall street journal article the wall street journal did a study where they put The credit kid accounts they typed in one search term like only fans or whatever and then watched how crazy all of this content got into all kinds of deep dr edge cases of sexuality. And i think that tick talk is really trying to damage. The united states both culturally and psychologically and with kids. And i think we should mantech talk period under story. There's no reason for a chinese authoritarian country which controls their companies. And when i said that six months ago year ago people thought i was crazy. Oh we don't have any evidence that china controls companies. We don't have any evidence of them having the data. I mean this is something that and said. We don't have any evidence of that and she works for the new york times camin. She covers social media for the new york times. She's not like a china expert and here we are china's literally taking over every company. And what they're doing. Is i think they've taken over all the private companies in china and they have all their data and they've done inexpensively so anyway. These rules come after. China bank kids under eighteen from playing video games during the week and gave them limited hours on the weekend of just three hours Which we covered on the all in episode forty five david freedberg mentioned on that episode that all of the major decisions based on data research and forcing now comes they won so they're basically banning talk for people in their country but they're more than willing for us to use it. Let's stop for a second. And where my china be getting this research from. What why might they be making these decisions to not let their kids play unlimited video games and you social media well North american researchers have found that there is a link between children and screen time. And it's not good according to a may twenty twenty one study by rutgers. University center of gambling studies middle school aged children. I'm quoting here. Who used the internet. Social media video games recreationally for more than our day during the school week have significantly lower grades test scores. Okay they use the internet social media video games for more than one hour a day during the school week they have significantly lower grades and test scores now. Is it that the people who are doing poorly in school Then go use the internet more or is it that the internet is making their do more Poorly in school that whole 'cause versus correlation. I'm not sure If we really even have to debate this we all know that if you're spending your time playing video games you're just gonna run out of attention and energy. You're spending your time on social media. You're not going to be able to do other things. that's why i took a twitter break. I came back a little bit on the margins. But i'm going to start to try to break again shortly because it does suck the life out of you. Sucks all the cycles out of your cpu. Here's another quote from the rutgers press release researchers say the findings give parents and children moderate threshold for using entertainment related technology. No more than one hour daily on school days and four hours on weekends okay. In comparison to hookers recommended threshold. The cpa is now only allowing forty minutes per damp to talk. And that's the childproof version for kids under fourteen and only three hours of video games on the weekend. No video games on weeknights for kids under eighteen in other words. They're basically doing exactly. What rutgers research team maybe even taking it a little bit further and then at the same time. We've got facebook and instagram. Doing studies finding out that Young girls are suicidal depressed and anxious because of instagram and they're telling the researchers that explicitly and we're sitting here not making any changes. We need to look at all of these tools and say kids under sixteen seventeen eighteen. Whatever age we choose here in america need to stop using these tools and they need to use versions of them. That have been modified. So if you compare china Who's dealt with us and how the us is dealing with. This.

"Basis in. It's really bad done for you service or done with you rather right service that you guys do differently. You don't just say hey. Here's the machine. Have fun because it's i mean. This stuff is complicated. Absolutely i mean. I think that's. That's how healthcare is evolved into this really complex living thing. Most people think that they may turn change. That's done for year. Where reality healthcare these to be motored measured every day in day out so the service aspect of it With advisors to get the actions done is really what it's all about because you know i'm in the business but if you're not gonna do anything with the information in it's just interesting in taking action off. It is actually the most critical step. So we focused in day out in leveraging those capabilities so people can take the appropriate action. Love it and so you know. We focused a little bit on the on the cost savings but talk to us a little bit about risk and risk mitigation and some of the things that could be derived around. Risk mitigation for people covering their employees. Yes so from a risk mitigation standpoint being. I think that did is foundational. We take were living in the alternative vote. Rain right now. cove in. It's been more present than ever that as people were coming back to work whether that's remote or in the office manufacturing plants what have you. You're not bringing a health element into the workers. Compensation raina and so you start to understand that korla tip nature that has always existed between health and risk over just able to see it in more tangible way right now with kevin so at the end of the day you know i think from a risk mitigation standpoint safety. Procedures articles have had a really huge impact on lowering that rescue since really late eighties now. Starting to look at the health element as as a component of that. So do i have in issue is my knee. Have been going to physical therapy for a long time. Maybe money is in a bad spot tour in my truck driver. Zondo abuse the different things that can really have some hotdog cost associated with it. We announce combine health data with other wristed to get a new lens on where that loss. That's interesting and so when you think about you know the typical employer taking care of your health care. Expenses mean were not in tune with what things are and how they work. And so what would you say is is one of the biggest mistakes that you see made by employers and maybe the best thing that inova does in those key areas. Yeah i think the biggest mistake is were vying on others. To tell you the information versus can have ended and verify yourself. So if you think about how other industries have revolved would always starts at that level of transparency. Getting access to the information. That really does open your eyes to what's really going on. Then there's a level of education that happens to say okay why is that. Occurring in typically from education becomes the action and then in some industries. We've been get legislation in reactive. Things that come out for that. But i think we're kind of hat in the. Us healthcare system is really that transparency in education about so a lot of people are now with tools like nova who have the ability to look behind the curtain understand why healthcare has been escalating at a rated the what where is our waste and fraud within mississippi. And so once you start to understand where that lies you can educate yourself on in really do something about it. So i think that that foundational level of just you know relying on others to tell you why your rates are increasing or why risk is going up without independently verifying is probably the the most foundational mistake. Many make now then it's too bad and there's opportunities now for all of us to consider new ways of taking a look at our data verifying it and then gain insights from that data to get savings at. It takes a train to i and i in the past. I've used this example with you know a couple years ago. My wife and i went to hawaii and it was february. Wanted to see the whales and you know we were just looking look and confined him. We get in a boat and the whale person starts telling us what to look for and after that boat ride literally we saw wales from everywhere we were standing. You know and it wasn't until we had that education. And i love that you guys offer both the technology and the people to be able to get to that insight because you guys see across so many different companies you'll see patterns. I imagine there are so many see patterns you see performance you see who just has cleaned it rights who manages those such things on a more granular level. So you know because we deal with the entire country and cell phone employers from everywhere we see all those different models so part of what you get from us being that extra level of service is you get that experience as well. We're not just talking to you about your date over talking to you about what we see out. There in terms of what solutions are actually working. What isn't quantifiable results for seeing. Who's doing it. The best in that's really an actual value that our analysts can bring to the equation because we get to see data at a much more broad spectrum than post and that's hugely valuable as you think about today in our health system is undergoing massive transformation. Would you say you're most.

He's got a history of healthcare leadership across many different companies but also he's a serial entrepreneur founding companies like as link group and also bit more. He's really specialized in the area of employee benefits worker's comp insurance but ultimately using data to make insights so that you could do best things for your business your employees and ultimately improve outcomes and business. Success so kevin. I'm so privileged to have you here on the podcast with us and wanna thank you for joining us. If they threaten me really looking forward to the goal position to like was so. Did i leave anything out in that bio that. Maybe you want the listeners. To know about you know. I think that's a pretty good introduction. You're very interested in really driving savings opportunities into the healthcare space in really at nova woods. All about your transparency data and how that really accomplishes that so i think from that standpoint. We've got it covered awesome before we dive into transparency. And the work that you guys are doing to help your advisers employers the people that you serve improve outcomes and save money. Tell me a little bit about you. And what inspires your work in healthcare. So i think it's it's really twofold one in my family's been around healthcare so bene- grew up as a an armed light business apart from father visited insurance. The always added into around me. But when you think just healthcare in general so much of it is positive and really helping people to live a better healthier life in technology advancing the way this these days being able to reach more people. Just you know it's just a really interesting industry on the flip side when you think of the business aspects of it you know healthcare is something that really does touch almost every american every push around the country and was potentially a quarter of it being waste. There's just a huge opportunity to help. Employers employees purchase healthcare more efficiently than really ultimately access the level of care that they need at a at a more effective rate. Yeah you are on point. My friend you know. Purchasing healthcare more efficiently is important to all of us whether it's us as individuals whether it's us as business leaders running our business it's important and that transparency that accountability all those things. Are you know things that aren't as omnipresent as we'd like to be in the benefits game and so you know. I'm curious what you and i know woo are doing in this space. So tell us a little bit about how you guys add value to the healthcare ecosystem absolutely said no. We already the analytics company. So we are doing data feeds from all of the carriers. Tpa's pm's in solutions providers out there ecosystem on behalf of self-funded employers so as different debugged wing strategies come into vogue reference based pricing employers. Really looking for a centralized pace to house all their data to really identify healthcare opportunities in hold everybody in the healthcare ecosystem accountable. So that's the need that adults with phil's for our clients where we have that centralized data set that we have specialists actually looking at the data on behalf of our clients to help them understand where those opportunities live in them. We work collaboratively with their advisers. And they're a charged after survey charge. Remember that might be to implement solutions that make sense for them based on their unique issues. Love it so basically you guys are aggregating data across all of the service providers and then with that aggregation. You're able to dig deep and come up with insights to to help. Employers save as it in a nutshell love it and so give us some examples kevin. I mean i'd love to hear how what you guys are doing is number one different than what's available but then taking a deeper step into the solution an example maybe of high. You've been able to help one or several of your customers at it really comes down to you. Know there's different levels So i think does differently than others is. There are other people that have a technology platform. We can go toe to toe with anybody out there but we really don't foot the keys over to our users like traditional sassen autoweek ticket further where. We're actually helping drive that action. So we had the specialists that are looking at data. Really giving them the answers. We don't expect our size. Be data monitors. The the analytics professionals salim really focused on identifying problems in hubby implement that. So that's really where we take one step further differentiator staus examples. You can get really simple. Examples from different carriers tps not transitioning stage renal disease at thirty one months at can have huge dollars associated with them. Then you get a little bit more complex for you. Start to look at the site of care. Opportunities where employees for you are not essentially going to ineffective solution so a great example of that in a silver lining of kovin is the prevalence of taliban. It's been viable solution. For decade but it has got pretty low utilization across the board for employers but now covert lot of employees have experienced that understand now the convenience application of that avenue at a lower cost and a safer alternative than going into So those are some of the things that we will help identify. Then you get into really kind of more complex issues where you start to evaluate different. Pbs models over the variances between traditional p. b. m. a. cast through where there's a lot of complexity in leveraging data analytics platform can really come in to help in that evaluation because we can leverage millions and millions of lives data versus looking at it on.

I'm not interested in whitening cosmetic treatment but refers loads and loads of kids and things to for author and in back of my head. I'm thinking well don't think cosmic treatment. I mean the we how how much will fix has health benefits. And how'd you feel of noticed. I've noticed that the dentist selling wolf based on the health benefits. How how'd you feel about that. We just in a paper published. In the american journal donte the ineffective said that there is a surprising lack of evidence for the benefit through on trading across the board last not decide. The wasn't that isn't a benefit and then think it's very important to stress that is we. We didn't find any evidence threat or much evidence for the reason for that is that we've been asking our own questions. Maslow's the daunting search for example is involved with has straight to the teeth what someone's collegial And things happened the very little in a way of actually asking patients. The way that they'd benefit hired they feel run The very important factors. So when you look at the benefits north atlantic treatment you got the various non cosmetic benefits such Large average sets the subject to trauma than young children Severe severe crowding which may lead to declined but that try to hustle Crowded might say even on the referral. Practice is not gonna lead to carries Disease so then you said a note could think well the cosmetic citing potent. We've got back to the parents of and again over the years. This has changed quite dramatically to their thing because people becoming more aware of this themselves have appearance in society. Knowles changed and again. We're all much more aware of it. Used to be just in terms of the way we know whites referred to coughing ourselves all the time Event transfer that back down to the generation of teenagers now uncertainty for the last five years with self phasing fight to grasp in perusing. Everything rob i would sign. This is just a hunch sign's behind this the also of young young people that we treat or seeking treatment very different from their's from twenty to thirty years ago and they aren't concerned with the appearance of a taste because of that great importance placed on denims amounts. What you're chasing you chasing. Someone's affairs now. The next question is treatment of someone's appearance cosmetic on at what point does improving or changing someone's appearance become a health benefit in terms of the way they feel about themselves on their self esteem varies interceptions because then used to move into the mental health benefits so designed to be one study that is ever really looked Self esteem and the on vicks and that was done by us as part of the constitution. That is that we did looking into set to treatment of tin problems in young children and way founded the group of children who received and appliance treatment with these kids. Big either jets when i jet reduced their self-esteem boosted. We're getting teased less than half when we followed them for the next five years but the kids didn't get treatment really cool with them in terms of this self-esteem so those difference in itself a statement sixteen was with this group of patients. Nine or ten die important. We didn't measure. Rarely that kitching myself. If i did that. Study again what we do many of the things so there is something to it is easy to say it's just cosmetic for it bagel metric of but but it's it's the fact it's wrapped up as as health that that i'm interested in because you know teeth. Whitening has health benefits. By the way. It's it depends cool health. Well your teeth teeth. Whitening is good for the gums. In terms of the peroxide is good for ginger vitus. The you get less plaque to the teeth you get less route carries but we didn't talk about that because you know it's the cosmetic side we're talking about but leisure you see the health just bodily health. It's also a mental health w. initiative harris gold. And it is. I can't quite exactly at the moment. There is some like she. Psychological health started interrupt. You you'd be pretty based and and looking at research and all of that. I'm going to ask a question. That may be counterintuitive. Now what's your hunch. You probably don't like talking about hunches because you like evidence. What's your hunch on the future of don. Thanks i mean what. What's your attention in the in the in the near future and if talking a bit further ahead is this idea of learning ai. And all that. You think that's really going to do. Think direct consumer is going to get to a point where we don't need allstone this because of the technology. Don't reinvented itself. Every every few years the cycle after cycle of near appliance. Nothing is near suffocation. wasn't near it's been around for years for example so brick foods things. I would like to see your bathroom. Banking takes us on in the hands of good operators yet. You'd see no reason why that shouldn't happen. That must be improvements in the cosmetic. Look plants is moving way is going to be a movement away from stale near rockets while still not as good as stale in many ways gotta move away from that i think donald trump would like to consumer k. Is i don't know. I don't understand how you could do it in terms of looking after the patients properly. I think that's the key issue hit Everything is fine and it works and it does work. It's worth Dentistry is working a. There's a lot of scope for that. But that involves is constant monitoring and looking at the people. So i think that direct consumer no matter how fancy they try and dress. Lot is not gonna come insightful. They offered on his dentists detecting something going wrong and changing their treatment. The moment of the disaster. But but you think it could become a thing. Or i'm no. I don't know how i don't understand how record without that. Come of the of the professional. He knows what they're doing. I think that's the issue but what you saying earlier is a dentist. Don't advise a degree has been on apple sauce on the patient's mouth in that chair can still oak. Now send some polcy off to the patient and say take your own impression. Sunshine on will straighten you take so. That's the issue that the dentist has this guy to practice. It's not the system of cabinets in the problem is the dentist and you'll never. You'll never be. We will never eliminates people who were cats a scope a make mistakes. It's the the will take. Why not miss. Probably as small if you think about it because i think most dentists all sense of alarm healthcare professionals that want to harm people knowing. That ring might mistakes. Mistakes huffman a not live. But if you've got no buddy looking after the patient even if it is just simple linux treatment that can go wrong. And i think it from the point of view.

You just have to confront profe- of days to dig rockies on change the lives of god says not as he's not tracked but monitors nottage. Adp's learning on the job as they go have several years changing relatively straightforward case. It isn't a problem i think. Any orthodontist would disagree about values but kevin if if a young dentist was going to go on a two day clear line of course and then provide carolina treatment. You're saying that's that's compromised. Treatment right is that. Is that what you got lately. Yeah i mean a lot of the owners love. I'm not criticized for this. A lot of the line of treatment is come from treatment anywhere in many in many respects. I think it's just get to that. Let's get to that yet. How how good is invisible line from your from your reading is invisible better than the other clearer linas. And then how do they all. Compared to fixed case of research is showing the research is not starting to be done. And it's difficult today research in this area because a line of treatment is different from fixed Some really need sixty clients is they should be getting it. I think us the first cool suddenly. I've never done a line of treatment. It is bypassed me completely but in discussions that i'd gotten specialist friends of mine. Who do a line is that i i offer. Treatment is full. Works fifty clients treatment. An an isolated. Explain that anything else is compromise and the treatment has debate quite a compromise. Because you haven't gotten. The king saul have fixed appliances. You do see a Is that one hundred percent of the lines bird research sharing actually the fixed upon is still providing a. That's a sort of finish better standard of care. How far behind. It generally research from like for instance. If i'm sure if you spoke to the people that align they tell you what we provide this year is a lot better than what we were providing three years ago because of machine learning and whatever whatever they want to say people white people always say that though silver something better around and that's what we like to hear isn't the is always something and companies through the Ed perfectly. Within their rights to do that because the job of the siles man will decide To sell that. I get it but you know. I get a healthy dose of skepticism. Definitely from someone like you needs to be super important right but but as a question if a tiff correct type person not not someone in in the highest echelons of author. Yeah someone in someone. Practice actually came up with the breakthrough. How long would it take. Before that breakthrough gets onto an mo. Of course in canada. I would say fifth years. Research takes time because of course the length of treatment is like say does not doubt apache. You're looking at two and a half years of treatment. The treatment costs taste. That is that we did ten years to do it was one of the practice is one of the studies that completely changed the viewpoint on orthodontic treatment with functional appliances.

And then you're not as the entire entire raisin day on them are more interested in this and this wasn't protecting the public just in terms of fitness to practice. It was protecting the public in terms of levels of aiming monitoring audit everything that goes with it so apply to the member of the council on Completely amazed again. I was interviewed and completely amazed nemo when one day a few weeks later setting. I was one of the dentists entre council. The council is a large. It was twenty four people. So i was of the dentists on counts of. We had a fifty fifty split between lie on the professional members. Got white court. Well and then i was lucky resigned. It was then going again for another another cheer. Time was the visited habitability. In sort of a graduation the jazz regulators alight pico councils appoint huddle people's a lifestyle. The gdp was ready for that government. Self red cross. I got i was just in cross mood that everything is going on with the ged. So i'm just gonna day. They suffered an application and was elected chair. Which completely amazed may mayo quite stunned. This moawad Was completely shocked. A giving shelters the type of person who's who's like good politicking but creamy creepy from. I would've thought to become the chair of the gd you need to be that cat and my role about also you need to. Politics is one of the things. I'm not going to politics. I'm pretty useless in in many ways. But it's about time. The politics predicted the politics weren't complex. It was getting the bdo dot com. Which is it was a potent. It was getting the dentist spot crumbled. I just caught me. Went about about the job and one of the things when i did a buck. That council did an awful lot of really good work in putting building blocks implies across the board in terms of standard skype Access specialists training quantity got on with it. We make mistakes and every organization makes mistakes. What we just got on with it and i was quite pleased at the end with the work we done and my feeling when i look back on it is on quite uncle are happy now i want. I like it because law people sightly where we're the chair of the council. I said you have my cell. We didn't not. She will ask the best chair. Regulates in need is the person i think is someone who assists gets the job done courtney on. Nobody really remembers them in in about ten years because it was smooth inciteful elite a lot of things that i upset i still managed to upset. A lot of people wasn't necessarily not popular in some areas of government. But i don't think we did a good job. And then that sort of latest three to really alleger. The issue of nature is very interesting in the council's because the job has changed. Mike release verbal last twenty years most of the regulatory bodies now hover leitch of light years. I think nearly one the justices the james day and that's really unusual on freddie confidence in saying this probably i'm the last Dentist chair of the general. Dan council evan moving on from nanna and talking about jd. Peel on six. And you know there's been a massive surge of that. I think over the last decade also festival. I guess i'll just wanted to get your opinion on how you feel about. Gdp doing all saddam. Six am what do you think is the appropriate training pathway forward. Gdp who wants to It wants to treat patients in straighten teeth. And where'd you feel a compromises are in gdp assessing diagnosing and carrying out also. Don't six when obviously you compared to someone who's had extensive specialist training so it's always helpful to look back healthy look forwards when we go back for example in the time that i said dante treatment was not carried out by rob. I think i can't remember the figures exactly. But i think it was about thoroughfare. Number of general practitioners used to on six again with the river. Plunges was awesome group practitioners. Who worked his critical assistance with consultants tests. And actually the common pattern of care instead of hospital based orthodontics and he's not really hospital by on six now it now because i am. The hospital was often. The lay present dividing orthodontics require wide area. Customer very few specialists regular to do is they used to see patients they used to nightcap statement ponds on either so not treatment pun back to the general dental practitioner referred the patient or send to one of the dentists in the district who who also did the treatment using simple methods so that during simple compromise placements in many ways under the supervision of consultant said judy pills. Don't take not unusual at that point then. Of course we. We moved into fixed appliances. This is where there is sort of a degree of a dilemma. Because it depends what you're trying to do so for example in the undergraduate orthodontic girls. There is absolutely not why. I could take a undergraduate students to be competent in fixed treatment. Even the diagnosis necessarily behind that Thought he's a specialist subject is most fixed appliance treatments for children. All specialist a specialist liable. That's not to say that a general practitioner who's got a lot of experience in treating children with fixed. The plants should not be doing it and many of those around to be honest to do a very good job. Despite the fact that not especially leaves little learn to over the years as an example of that is a bit of a spin off. When i when membership in the dom takes i started. There was one year while those moratoria in a why i called tonight concert opportunity where explained his general practitioner could come and sit in specialty exam if they wanted to give shot specialist.

So when she when she took a job he didn't often come across students on the day today basis because it was a surprisingly high level job. And you're done your delegates must of the day. Today comes with people. Don't to me which was subdivision. So i i worked for a while with their associate. Deans nice to people guy lieke. Actually who is a brilliant undergraduate teacher. An alien dealt with only undergraduate issues. I didn't have to think about them because they it devoted his entire life to chasing a teaching undergraduates and it was very occasionally in came to see me and said we grow problem. And thus tends to work it's a management with amount of management structure. Have it covered. You spoke about your education in your specialism an end. The approach was very much. A scientific approach review the literature becoming a critical thinker has that changed in current current day in terms of how the training structured an what the what the output is from. Or they don't also don't takes the uk all the course is pretty much assign to teach the curriculum on the data that includes research coaches on research methods a obviously critical praise. And everybody still has to do must've stasis which has changed over the years is not as extensive as it used to be but it was every specialist orthodontists in the country has had heightening in research. It's critical appraisal on. They've done their own piece of his natural beard and small piece of research. So i know how to appraise lich Appraise critically by is not the same. In other countries. European countries are pretty much the sign. The year as i don't think is anywhere near europe in terms of a trading specialists in science you know trout training is straight ahead of the united states within europe. More about what about the hands on ellen side of things in terms of how much water bending or or you know practical aspects of the course of changed. I know i was speaking to a dentists. Probably so my age or a little bit older and they were just shocked and surprised at how when they were out dental school. Not not not obviously specialist beleaguered so school the volume of dentistry. They would do in as a student. Competitive students coming out. Now is like nights and day something to pay off in science when i look back at my undergraduate training i i remember we used to go into the as an example we would have a block in wall surgery which rusty two weeks and during the two weeks i think you sort of had a requirement to take at least a hundred tastes than do the twenty nine who'll surgical procedures so the end of the day recently could take teeth out coarsely and we also used to a lot of amalgams a lot of restorative work and dentures and things like that but those were the days were dental disease was absolutely right i think people we talked a modern dentist now and said okay i can't look at mark clinic. Listed middleton dire completely amazed at the amount of started work that i was that we were doing. We were doing wall to wall. Amalgams emphasised dying because of the high levels of a disease that we were dealing with clearances dentures. Immediate benches it was it was it was nothing. Light play margin. General dentistry is now nothing important. Remember trained for the times which was high-volume dentures. Fillings with the not not a not necessary to the same standards that paper practice nowadays. I think i think that's quite important. The biggest difference between an undergraduate near the qualifying now and somebody calling find when i was a night. Confide who's the people understand what they're doing more now than we did.

"Be talking late. Seventies started training in nine thousand nine hundred four okay at that. Point orthodontist was pretty established as a as a as a specialization. But what would you say. Were the biggest differences between uk and us orthodontics. back then. yeah. I'll not point because of the why the dentists were paid to do orthodontics treatment. Uk all saddam. Ticks was dominated by simple removable appliance. Treatment i can't actually remember the nuances of the payment system. But in many ways it was sort of a hot very high volume delivery of care with what was shown to be very light standards in joined tom with steve. Richmond is recently retired as professor. At cardiff steve rayle groundbreaking work on clues indecision college if treatment and stay shared during that time the quality of care in the uk. Orthodontic services. Which i think it was something. Like eighty percent removed appliances. Most children with a high number of children actually ended up worse than they were before they started because the skin is not work from steve led directly to several government in crises. Which then led to i think was a change of the method of payment on fixed appliances sort burst onto the scene coincident land nothing politics thought was due to the into slow to fix the small appliances but also it was the of payment in those days. Dentists played on fake garage service. Surprised she didn't think that. Dr prescription process was hammered. She got paid individual So close with loudly paid high-volume basic rose because nowadays things have changed quite to service the ship bay which is mostly fixed appliances and the us at the time was what way ahead because you is is always being based on a fixed. Klein says other than removable appliances. The various reasons for that has popularized fiscal of the. Us trying to go down his time. But the secondly it is she said of getting back to the end of the second world war the europe in states uncertainty the pay have much away stale and stale was very expensive. If to the light off onto treatment you provide it with prosthetic appliances with minimal amount of stale whereas the us course stay rich and they could use fixed appliances for be far more than we could not point on then once you establish a system of care built on the very simple method loose appliance. Is it continues. So the driven by of manton haussa his policy when you became dean of manchester was that was that sort of moving into the management side and away from the academic clinical side for a while. One of the things this. I don't know who is fortunately unfortunately academic career but when she stops did good research. 'cause i was running a research to a now picked up another grunt from the medical research council for ten years from the early treatment for children with very prominently. Rules are putting Retations the in scored the all dumped it department but as product that project. I'm working people might stay rich from nikki. Dow david been gone. Gano have great careers. And i am and again many young trainees that i that i worked with her high profile. His came out of manchester at that time because it was incredibly vibrant so we were parting away research and then one of the issue. One of the problems is that Take on up monroe if they if they see research in you built a research so Made research director of the school and then the often you often from that positions to end up stepping up his daines said. That's what happened. I i ended up as deigning not working lunch late. I hope to take a wanted to but a university says while we think you should on this is necessarily a request. It's the this Refuse blast doesn't really what happened. I ended up his day in which i did for three and a half years but mental. You've you've taught thousands of students of both dentistry and orthodontics. The you ju- festival can you. Can you tell someone's going to be good early on. However can you tell and secondly that it must be like a source of real pleasure to you to see people blossom. You've i mean is that what keeps you going in an academic because as a as a private orthodontist. I'm sure you could done very well but you never did. That will always used to say. Why don't why aren't you apply. pissed added. there's also times have i have. I was flying to combat question. The minute i was flying. The american orthodontic come foods in san francisco as i was sitting at the gate in the economy q. Alert of Specialist orthodontists half of remind trying to do the business. Go on the plane. I found in the second the economy. Of course you can see into business. Cosimo's is waving to me and giving me food. But they came back and chat with and things like that. It was a busy flight. So you just give me. I am tired. I think of all the paper that i've trained birth specialist. Some general practitioners haven't have tried to go to the don't confidence oers plenty of people of course recognize that coming until today is one of the things back on think. Well yeah. that was great to have tried People actually now. How many our up the interesting for fourteen years gonna think. Got an intake of sixty to seventy undergraduates year. How soon can see talent in even undergraduate or also graduates very quickly. We didn't take the much of critical. Saddam ticks because i wasn't name because we retreated them to be party.
