"There's a lot of work to be done on that front because the stark contrast in the statements between the WTA and the ATP is just yeah, it's just night and day and you can see that I think in terms of the player reactions, particularly from the men's players, I think it was, I can't remember who it was exactly bear as you said Kim. Well, I think one player I think it was, it might have been Andy Roddick, I think it was an American player who said, yeah, it was like, this is an example of how to say a lot without saying anything at all. And if you read the statement again, it just is a bit kind of non committal doesn't want to get involved and yeah, it's a bit, it's not, I don't think it's ideal. And I think again, kind of reading into it from what I understand from journalists is that the motivation for the kind of noncommittal approach of that ATP statement was more from people on the board that were kind of tournament organizers, I think, and not necessarily players. And again, I don't think that's I don't necessarily think that's right. The AP's ATP should be reflective of their players. They have a player council. And I think we've seen in individual statements from players on Twitter that they want something to be done. And I feel like they deserved a better stance or a more proactive stance than the ATP has given. Yeah. I mean, I guess the ATP they can't really get involved in the extent of obviously the WTA are taking action and canceling those events in China. But I think if there was ever going to be a joint or merger between the two of them, and then kind of becoming more unified, they're going to need to be as proactive as the WTA and obviously we've seen with the whole sphere of stuff that the ATP have been found wanting with that. And yes, it's good. They've said something, but it's just, yeah, you know, it's two different levels of reaction, isn't it in action? I mean, the argument, the interesting thing for me here also is, you know, you've got, you know, I feel like you've got this disconnect between what the ATP statement says and what the players are feeling. And again, that's going to be, I think, kind of talk about the PDPA and whether they feel like this is an opportunity to get kind of players on their side because they could, for example, come out with a statement and says, we're aligned with what the WTA says. And I feel like that would get instantly a lot of players who were not happy with the stance from the ATP. You get them on board. And yeah, have something that is more reflective, I think, of what the locker room, I think, is thinking at the moment. So again, it could be it could be something that kind of leads to a more player orientated body, might not necessarily be the PTP, but I certainly think right now that that statement just does not reflect the players in the sense that the WTA statement does for its players. Yeah, I think, well, you better get on the phone to vash it possible. Novak Djokovic should be skiing right. They should be skiing and strategizing right now, I think because I think this is a moment that is gripped. It's gripped players, it's gripped. The whole world, you know, we're seeing it in news stories, not just in kind of sports stories as well. So it certainly feels like a moment that they could use that could be an opportunity for them to get people on their side. They're missing a trick. Yeah, we'll have to see how it all develops, but which tournaments I guess that we're going to take up those spots that China are now have left vacant. So we'll have to see where they go instead. But plenty of places I'm sure love to have some of those Asian swing events that will not be happening, for example. I mean, one player who will not be taking any part is Joe Connor, who has sadly announced her retirement from professional tennis, this news came out in the last the last week. She put a statement out on social media. You know, essentially, she said that she wants to focus on other things. Her injuries as well are I think probably a big factor she's been struggling for quite a while. With being kind of fully fit and it's a lot of sacrifices in it and to put yourself through that and she's yeah, she's calling it a day, which is, I think, completely fair enough, I think. Surprise. I was a bit when I first heard it, but actually, you know, I think she's got other things she wants to do. She'll probably we would expect she'll probably start going into commentary or TV, she's quite into baking, isn't she? Her dogs. She's got a lot of stuff going on in her life and other pursuits, which is always really good that they players have other things to go into and I think if she's not prepared to if it's getting to that point where it's too much of a struggle to even be on the tour, I guess. And be fit enough to play and you know, you get to that point, maybe it's just time to time to go, but she's what she's 30. So they're she could change your mind in a couple of years. It has been known. I feel like we say that every time I play every time, you say that every time I swear, yeah, I was a little bit, you know, I was a little bit surprised, obviously I was a little bit disappointed as well. I mean, she was a fantastic player. One of the best players in the world, she reached world number four, she reached the semifinals of the Australian open, the French Open and Wimbledon. So, you know, she did she did really, really well, and I feel like she was very committed reaching the top and it really paid dividends for and she definitely I think got the most out of her talent and her ability. I think there are those certainly there are I think there's what if questions we always talk about the von drew subvert semifinal with me as the biggest kind of moment and potentially missed opportunity I feel in her career to reach a Grand Slam final, but certainly I think for British tennis, she has done she has done a lot, I think, you know, she has carried the flag as the British women's number one for fair few seasons. I think we were all growing back a few years. I think we were all sort.

"Time around, I think, because of the restrictions, state by state, they've shortened it, and yeah, made it into just one site, which I think is a smart move. It feels like a lot of tennis is just going to be played between Sydney and Melbourne. I guess yeah, the interesting question is, again, I feel like we've been asking it forever. Is Novak Djokovic going to be playing in Australia? The fact that he is on that committee playlist, what do you think him? Is that a sign that he's going to be signed up for the Australian open or is that more of I'm just helping my teammates play for team Serbia and I'm going to withdraw. Yeah, it's all a bit will he won't hear at the moment, isn't it? I won't believe it until he's on that plane. Instagramming, you know, after he's landed in Australia. So that's going to be the most pressing question isn't it over the next few weeks? What was Novak Djokovic going to be doing? And on that note, Joel, let's have a quick break. But do join us in the second half, everyone, where we'll be looking at Johanna konta, announcing her retirement from tennis. The WTA suspending all of their events in China and also who's up for the ATP end of season tour awards. So do not go anywhere. This is the passing shop with Joel and Kim supported by download tennis dot com and now we're going to move on to little quiz segment for the podcast. And this is a mysterious player Joel. I don't have a par for the courts for you. But I hope that's, I hope that's okay. I hope you've got your, you know, you've got your thinking cap on. I have to warn you. It's not going to be born ago. Because he doesn't have a very extensive amount of evidence to give in mysterious player. So I can let you know that it's not going to be bored. Okay. All right. I've just kind of mentally prepared myself now that it's not going to be born ago, but yeah, I'm here for it. We're going a bit old school going. I feel like we haven't had a mysterious player for a while. I don't know if that's going to count against me. It probably will do, but yeah, let's see how many let's see how many clues or if you're going to run out of clues before I can get the answer. Okay. Well, talking of old school, this person is a little bit old school, so. I'll start I'll start off now. I was born on the 4th of June 1976. 1976, wow, okay. So a 6 9 6 O 6 16 also 40 5 years old. So probably recently recently retired, I was going to say Felicia Lopez, but it's not. He's still going. He's still going he's 40. Merritt safin. Incorrect..

"Including Madrid Innsbruck, I think, and Turin. And now, yeah, it's going to be adding another city. So I do quite like the idea of having more than one whole city. I get the feeling, though, the boy I think about it is whether the reason for that is financially driven in the sense that they're looking to bake as much money as possible, I guess. And the toilet organizers. And as a result, they don't want it to just be in one place because they probably feel like they can make more money if they get kind of full House all kind of bidding and that kind of remains to be seen who those cities are. But I get the feeling that the fact that they are kind of diversifying out into more than just one place means that they can feel like they can make more money from the event, but also of the course generate greater awareness and engagement, I think, with team tennis and the Davis Cup brand. Yeah, I think it would be a number of factors and perhaps the shareholders of the cosmos tennis group will be quite intrigued by which facts are going to bring them the most money. But the other news that kind of came out was the wild cards for next year's Davis Cup. And the fact that Great Britain have been given a second wild card in the space of three years. Serbia have also received a World Cup. I mean, they both seem quite obvious world cars to give. I've been Serbia obviously Novak Djokovic world number one that they want him at the show. And I guess Great Britain possibly Andy Murray might be might be making an appearance, but also, you know, we have done pretty well at Davis Cup of late and we've got we've got a very strong squad these days and perhaps that's the reason and we'll probably help boost the marketability of the event or perhaps they're thinking one of the host cities might be in the UK as well. Definitely, I think it certainly raised eyebrows with some people non maybe non UK non British fans with regards to how wise is Great Britain getting wild card because it has the format for next season has changed. And there will be, I think, even though there will be more cities, there will be less teams and getting to the semifinals this time in this competition. It doesn't actually mean anything. So Germany who I think can feel a bit hard done by actually Germany who got to the semifinals. They're going to have to be playing in the qualifiers. Along with lots of other nations to make up the 16 nations in total for the 2022 Davis Cup. But yeah, I think we've Great Britain. I do wonder whether there is you would think that they would kind of be in the shutting and with a shout or would be looking to be one of those four European host cities and maybe they're just kind of preempting that without obviously having the announcement by giving them a wild card. Because yeah, you do feel like they've got a very good team at the moment across the board with the singles, players, nori, Evans, doubles players as well. Joe Salisbury, Jamie Murray, canon Neil skapski, it feels like a very, very solid team. I can understand why some people would be frustrated, given two in three years, seems quite generous. But yeah, I wonder if there's other kind of things that play with regards to it's being given for other reasons. It does raise the point though, I think Kim is like, should there even be wild cards in the Davis Cup? Because arguably this actually kind of robs Great Britain over qualifier tie, which could have been hosted and would have been over a kind of an old school Davis Cup format. We don't get that privilege or that tie anymore going straight through. So we almost kind of lose a bit of it as well. I think I'd rather just be straight in the finals though. Which I guarantee. Yeah, because in this qualifying draw, you could be up against the USA, you could be up against France, Germany. You're not going to make it, then I'd rather just automatically know I'm going to be in the final event and giving it a go then. Do you think GB should have got a wild card? Two and three years. Yeah, I do think that's just the closeness of it. I think maybe two across 5 years might be less suspicious, but I mean, I'm not going to complain as a British tennis fan. I think we've got to make the most of it. And I think we know we lost to Germany this year, which is a bit of a shame, but I think with nori if nor you can keep up his improved form and Evans, we've got like two cracking singles players. We've got cracking doubles players like world leading double sprayers as well. So perhaps they're just seeing our massive potential Joel. I don't know. Let's just quickly talk about GB in this Davis Cup, because we lost to Germany to one. It came down to the doubles. It was very, very tight. We lost, I think, two tie breaks. I think we were 5 little up in the second set tiebreak and it all went to all went south from there. I mean, how would you kind of reflect on GB's performance this time around? Because it did feel like we had a lot of players in the form of their life. And yeah, for me, I guess a little bit disappointing. We couldn't come through Germany, but I mean, Jeremy do have a very handy doubles team that just were a little bit more a little bit better in the clutch points on the day. Yeah, absolutely. Yeah, I think just it came down to that really. And it was a close affair, but I think we did well. And we made it to the semifinals two years ago, didn't we? In 2019, just have to think then what year it is, but I think we've got next year. We've got like two finalists already into the finals. We've got two wild cards already there. And then 12 qualifies. So we've got this whole qualifying round happening on the fourth and 5th of March, 2022. This has all been released. I mean, there are any particular ties that really catch your eyes. I think there's some pretty decent ones in there and I think we could see a few upsets perhaps. Perhaps I don't know, but I think there's going to be that's going to be a good weekend of tennis in early March, I think with those ties. I think for me looking at the ties, I mean, let's just quickly go through all of them. You've got France, Ecuador, Spain, Romania, Belgium, Finland, USA, Colombia, Canada Netherlands, which I think could be really fun. Germany, Brazil, Italy, Slovakia, Australia Hungary, Kazakhstan, Norway, Sweden, Japan, Argentina, Czech Republic, and Austria against South Korea. So the Korea republic..

"Kim, it's finally here. Our final catch up of the season. We have had lots of tennis over the last 12 months and now I think it is a time we can breathe. We can relax. We can reflect on all the tennis that has happened, including the Davis Cup in Madrid, which has come to has come to a close with Russia winning. We've also got a chance to look forward to the 2022 season. It is literally just a few weeks away. We've already had the ATP cup draw announced so we're going to be looking at that. And we've also had some news as well with the ongoing Peng Shui news with the WTA putting their foot in it and saying they're going to suspend all their tournaments and Johanna konta also announcing her retirement. So again, lots of big juicy things to sink our teeth into to talk about today. But I do think at the moment it is a moment that we can we can just breathe, can't we? Well, unless you want to talk about the open and shares arena Loire tournament. How could I forget? How could it be one two 5 event, leoni Kung has just taken to the court as we're recording this? So tennis does not stop, but it does not sleep, but yes, we do have a bit of a fallow period at the moment, but obviously all the tournaments will be kicking off again very soon. Especially with the ATP cup, which is essentially the Davis Cup take to it's all a bit bizarre. They come so close together in the calendars. But yeah, let me begin with the Davis Cup because we have had Russian tennis federation going unbeaten to win their first title in 15 years in the Davis Cup. And I mean, we both predicted this. I think a lot of people expected it. You know, Russian tennis federation won the Billie Jean King cup as well. They've done a double. They've got both team events, you know, they're on a roll really with team tennis at the moment, aren't they Joel? Yeah, they've been really, I think this is the year I think that Russia, Russia's header federation have really come to the party in terms of those team events across men's tennis and women's tennis. They also won the ATP cup at the start of the year. And on the men's side, they've just been very, very strong. And I think the foundation for me for that has been their strength in depth particularly in singles and they've obviously got Daniel Medvedev Andre Rublev. They're both kind of leading the way correct serve as well. They've just been very, very strong there. And when you have two really high ranking singles players to play those first two ties in this best of three format, it really kind of I think helps you get off to a good start Medvedev, obviously been playing some of the best tennis in his career so far this season, which is has helped. And I think that has inspired actually other individuals in their team. Remember, you know, we were talking about the very start of the season with the ATP cup Aslan karatsev Medvedev was singing his praises and he had a great start to the season. So I think they've also kind of inspired themselves and you can see how much they're really want to play for their country and how passionate they are for it. And with the Davis Cup, this time, knocking out Spain in the group stages, I think was a big moment and really kind of announced themselves as I think what we were all expecting or we were all thinking. They were the favorites and yeah they've gone and proven that. And in the final two nil victory over Croatia, both Rublev and Medvedev are getting the job done in straight sets against born nago and Marin Cilic. So yeah, it was a pretty it was a pretty pretty dominant showing, I think, from Russia, and I'm not, I'm not totally surprised because, yeah, they've just got such good strength in depth at the moment. I guess the only thing I am surprised by is the fact that this is their first title in 15 years, which does feel a bit surprising. I suppose they were just waiting for Medvedev to come along because you know they have had decent players like they had. I was going to say they had Merritt safin, but that probably was, there was more than 15 years ago when he was at his peak. So that may be explains it. I suppose they had the likes of davidenko, trying to think or ego Andre. Yep, usually, so yeah, perhaps surprising that they haven't won it in this time, but like you said they've got such solid singles players. It really gives them that kind of additional comfort blanket, doesn't it? Well, you don't always have to go to like a final rubber doubles and it's just a lot kind of more smooth sailing. And they came through against Germany in the semis, Croatia and the final I have to say, we also did, I think, predict Croatia would get to the final, I think, in our last catch up. Oh, it was either going to be Croatia or Serbia and Croatia, just edge that tie. Born agojo, as your second player, like on paper, you sort of think, how are Croatia even getting, you know, really? You were not expecting anything. But he's had a exactly had a really good week. Some wins over top 75 ranked players in the world and considering border gojo is down at 279 order in the world. He's had a great week or so and obviously played his part and getting their team to the final. And Kim, I'm not gonna lie, and maybe some of our listeners, I did not really know a lot about going into the Davis Cup, which is in one sense is what makes Davis Cup so amazing because it announces these players who they get that extra, they find an extra level in them when they're playing for their country. And I think that's what's happened to born a gojo this week, but Kim, I was doing a bit of research and literally born a gojo's Wikipedia page. His professional career is just one sentence, and it reads, gojo made his ATP main draw debut at the 2018 Winston Salem open after receiving a wild card for the singles main draw. He faced American Ryan Harrison and lost 6 to 6 four. That was literally his Wikipedia page at the moment, but certainly I think yeah, he has been one of the standout players, I think, one of the players who has announced themselves has certainly I think shown that with his ranking, his ranking is just a number. The level of Tennessee was playing the suite was very, very impressive. He beat popper in Sonny go as well in Italy, which was a very impressive win. I love it as well. So he had some very good singles performances. And I think Croatia was an interesting team because you know you look at the you look at that final, you know, Russia, the Croatia. And I sort of feel like they got to the final in different ways because with Croatia, they did have that really strong doubles pairing with and pavage which got them through got them through against Serbia in the semifinals. So I feel like they had that kind of that they had that Joker in the pack with the number one doubles pairing in that potentially decisive tie. Whereas you had someone like Russia who I felt was a bit of the complete opposite in the sense that, yeah, they did have, for example, is a pretty solid doubles player. But you do felt like they were sort of relying on their kind of two singles players given that they're both top ten players in Rublev and Medvedev to kind of get the job done before it got to the double. So for me it was quite interesting to see, you can certainly take, I think, different paths in order to be, I think, successful in the Davis Cup. Yeah, and I imagine that pavage should have been quite frustrated that he didn't even get the chance to step onto the core in that final because it could very well have decided things and they could have played a real champion role in that. But that isn't the case. It's not how it works. Unfortunately, I mean, there may be some people that might begrudge the Russian tennis federation, winning these team titles because due to the state wide doping that was going on in Russia across various sports. They have been officially banned from most international competitions until I think 2023. So some may feel that Russian tennis federation shouldn't even be there, but they've obviously been given license to do so. And I don't know, I don't think tennis was one of those sports that was necessarily involved in the systematic doping. I'm not an expert on that, so I don't know, but because we've had a lot of debate about next year's Davis Cup, where is it going to be? They're changing the format yet again..

"With Marin Cilic, but endlessly discussing it, aren't we? How quickly mental baggage accumulates and you do have to these things in the bud quickly. And it seems so he's so brittle, isn't it? It's just so easy to find a chink and for that chink to suddenly become a chasm in his self confidence. He goes, it's he goes dark in the eyes. Yeah, it's very bizarre. Suddenly, the world is a terrible place in the world of Andre Rublev. And I don't like to see that. It's a tough watch. I find it really stressful to watch, don't you? Yeah, it's a tough watch. Because I kind of feel like I don't know what sort of psychology work he does off the court, and I know it look I know he suffered with depression in his life. And lots and little bits of what I see about him. He seems like a lovely chap. You know, he seems to have a really fun and quirky personality and around the other players. They all seem to everybody seems to like him. But it feels that he needs to do a lot of work to understand what's going on in those moments. And to find a fix of some kind, because it is derailing him. Yeah, but he squeaked through today, didn't he? 7 6 in the third and sort of nip and tuck all the way until the tiebreak. We should also say that. That's twice now. We've ended up with situations where we've seen this happen to him. And you're actually in the doubles the other day and here he's kind of found his way through. Maybe you should do because he's against inferior opponents, but I mean, look, I still think there's work to be done. Yeah, but that's just also listed a number of matches where it cost him. Yeah. Cost him and his country. I still don't think you'll be dropped as the number two player, but no, I mean, I don't think shamil tapper shev Russia captain makes many decisions. That's the sort of vibe I get. If Rublev wants to play, he plays. And look, honestly, there's probably something to be said for, you know, after that Lopez defeat telling Rublev, go out there and get a win because we might need you later in the competition. We don't want you sulking on that on that loss. Obviously, it almost backfired because he almost lost again. But I think you want to send out a message, don't you, I suppose, with your team selections and maybe hacks and oven corrects ever not playing well and Rublev is their best option and look, he got the win. So it worked in the end. Yeah, it's television just to over it to make decisions. He has been doing this job for 712 years. That is a long time. I don't know exactly how many years it is, but it is so long. Since the 70s, isn't it? Well, he started in the 70s. Then I think at arrest and then came back brief rest. Yeah. Regrouped himself to make a few more decisions and now just sits there. Good luck to him. And you have to sit there while rosha take on Germany in the semifinals. Do we give Germany much chance? I think this is very similar to the other. And that they've got to win that first singles. The number two, because I really don't think struff is beating Medvedev, not Medvedev in this form. I mean, frankly, not never live anyway, but Medvedev's looking really good, I think, in this tournament. Chick's moment. So I really don't think so, because what we saw from guy object bloody hell. This is redemption time. He doesn't go to me. He doesn't become a rubbish player. There's no coming back from that. That is a clip for us. Well, I think cook for probably play to be honest. Yeah. I mean, it was a surprise that cook for didn't play when guy of chick was put in and Dan Evans thought there was some sorcerer it worked and didn't he about the timing of that substitution. Was he fully fit cup for? I suppose we don't know that. Dan Evans thinks so. But who knows? So we're looking at Rublev against cook for question mark. That's going to be the critical critical point. It would be fascinating if it came down to the doubles. Because Germany, Germany, have got that established successful pairing and Russia muddled through in the doubles. They play well, Rublev and karate said together. I think that would be would be really interesting. I just can't see it. I bet Germany favorite if it goes one or yes, I think I would too, actually. They're really good things too. Yeah. Unfortunately, I think I agree with Matt that it's unlikely to. But look, the other aspect of this Rublev situation is that everybody knows about it. Every player that goes out to face him is having the chat with their captain and or their coach beforehand, and they're saying, he's really brittle. You've just hang in there and just that, in most much is even defeats, there'll be a moment there'll be a moment where you get a break back or you get a break or something and seize upon that and stick the knife in and watch him fall apart, you know. So it could get interesting, I think. And I really hope it goes down to the doubles. But we'll see, it'll be tomorrow that we see Croatia against Serbia that's 3 p.m. UK time 4 p.m. Madrid time and then it will be Saturday for Russia against Germany and of course the final on Sunday. And the Saturday matches earlier. Yes. Midday. Midday UK, 1 p.m. here. I think to give them more recovery time ahead of the final. Yes, okay. That all makes sense. Okay, well, I think that's it. Feel round up of quarterfinal action. There's just three ties to go to semis one final. David, you know where Croatia colors, tomorrow? I suspect we will be seeing some of those. My son has got the full football strip. So I think that that'll be making a parent. Love that. Love that. And I reckon your son can probably nail a apology fist bump. Yeah. He wins. He would definitely be good at those. In fact, but I better tell him about those. And yeah, you'll be seeing them. Get practicing, everyone should have one in their repertoire. We'll be doing we're doing daily podcasts from now on to the end of the Davis cups will be back with our next one tomorrow. You don't have long to wait, and then we've got another one Saturday and on Sunday as well. We have the news yesterday, which we should cover very quickly. The former British number one multiple Grand Slam semifinalist Johanna konta is to retire from the sport at the age of.

"konta" Discussed on 600 WREC
"All right. Final moments with Jo Konta, Media critic writer from the Hill, Fox News contributor. Look, I'm not patting ourselves on the back, but I am very proud of the team we put together. I mean, we the stuff we were reporting. We had to get it right. And everybody that we work with at our full ensemble cast on the times you were part of it. So you know, before we go the story we had to have it, you know, double checked the dual sources and everything that we reported ended up being right and everything they reported. It ended up being wrong and You know and what you get fake stories, and you get Pulitzer Prizes at The New York Times for fake news. If you can't make that part of either. No, you can't. And the thing is that people are onto this now, Shawn. As far as the the American public is concerned, I thought this great poll from Axios may ask this question. That's pretty direct. How often do you think you sources report news? They know to be fake off or purposely misleading and eight we can independents said that news organizations engaged in that. So when we hear about all we made a mistake, we got burned by a source. No. They had a narrative in mind that they wanted to push. So the minute they got one source. Just one To verify whatever they're trying to report and then multiple news organizations verify the reporting, say of The New York Times, The Washington Post CNNC. We can verify the News Times report based on one source. It's not like they made a mistake because human error they made it to state because they purposely we're trying to mislead people because no longer about bias. It's about activism and helping Democrats and destroying conservatives. And we saw it time and time and time again during the Trump administration. Now, suddenly all those unnamed sources they've got away with Biden, haven't we haven't seen any Negative stories about him. That turned out to be wrong, because, well, actually, we did. I don't know if he saw the piece that came out how quick tempered Joe is that he doesn't start his day until 9 30 could even at times be abusive to people around him, lashing out which kind of fits into personality of somebody that might be a little cranky and sleepy, and maybe the struggling struggling cognitively that actually often goes along with it, according to the medical professionals. Look in two and I've spoken to Mehdi, and it's pretty unanimous about Joe's condition. But nobody talks about that. I think pretty much except me and Joe Biden and Mississippi Cup and Night night and his bedtime story. Well, you just look at his presidential schedule, right? I mean, it's very easy to say one thing like all right, I think Unless the one event today added up less than one. No, I'm looking at here. Let's see. He's the president of the White House at 9:15 A.m.. Does he want to Delaware? It looks like for the weekend. And they receive a daily brief and it's public locking sake holds a press conference and one o'clock the president delivers marks on cove in 19, and then the day ends. So his day is over Already. That's nice. When you're president of states, you're working, not even banker's hours. You're working basically what my kid did when he was going to school for half a day from nine o'clock, the one o'clock and then you're done, and that's how the president United States your consciousness, prepared to believe that I don't think he's up for that. I think that's pretty much what he's capable of. For now, never be somebody on their words based them on their actions. Eczema, Joe Biden his words His actions on Basically, everything are very, very okay. You see if you compare Joe Biden when he left in 2017, and you compare him to Joe Biden today. Do you see significant? Declined cognitively. Do you see that? He looks weak and he looks frail and confused. Night Day, night and day. I want to thank 2012. And how come I'm the only one of the only ones that will say it Because most people that are reporting on him probably voted for him, or, you know, privately support him. I mean, Zoe, obvious they're protecting him. As much as they can. And then the vice president's no better either. By the way, she's been working all that hard, either, because if I were put in charge of a border crisis that's now a catastrophe. I'm pretty sure I'd visit the border or Guatemala or Honduras or Mexico. But she hasn't done any of that. And she was appointed to this job. 52 days ago. We're talking more than seven weeks. She hasn't held one press conference made one trip. She was failing spectacularly. So when people say, Well, kamala is gonna be the 2024 candidates. Well, good luck with that, because This is what she's going to be based on. This is the grade and it's an F right now showing us far as her ability to handle this article out today. What did I see this article? I forget, I think was red state. Not looking good for Democrats and Americans deliver brutally honest rejection of Kamala Harris. Which is true, too, But I'll tell you why the media Why do you think the media doesn't hit me when I say And I'd give my observations on Joe because whenever they do a negative story, Sean Hannity being unfair, and he says the president looks weak. All I do is say Okay, let me play all the tapes and I put him back to back and I say you decide, and what I've concluded is they don't want me playing those tapes regularly and compare that to the one time Donald Trump had to walk down a rant at West Point. It was wet. He's in. You know, when you were addressed use those things could be very slippery on any surface, and he walked gingerly down, and then you saw hours and hours of coverage discussing Donald Trump's cognitive states. So if those states when it happens one little time with Donald Trump and nothing happened, But with Joe Biden that's off limits. You're not allowed to talk about that shark. Alright, Joe conscious. Thank you. 809 41. Sean, If you wanna be a part of the program, Quick break right back. Good afternoon. I'm Jim Charity Governor.

"konta" Discussed on 710 WOR
"He is Jo Konta. Welcome back everybody. 803 2107 10 is your phone number I find this annoying. In terms of Entra Cuomo. The governor announces last week that okay, you know, we're going to open up. Sports, In essence for fans to attend you say Okay, that's good. But it's zwei way too low in terms of the number of fans that he's going to allow. We saw the Super Bowl played last week. And what a job they did. By the way, huh? I mean, 22,000 people were in that stadium. They made it look like it was 80,000. You felt like you were watching a normal game for once, Uh, cardboard cutouts will do that. But they had 22,000 there. The world Syriza's In October was played before I believe 15,000 total wall in when they when they played that in a neutral site, Remember, that was Dodgers rays, and that was in Arlington, Texas. But with the Yankees and Mets, we're gonna have a situation where the governor says that the stadiums can accommodate 10% of total capacity. So if you do the math on that, in terms of what Yankee Stadium holds what Citi Field holds, you're looking at Barely 5000 people. If that right cause Yankee Stadium holds, I think 49,000 Now you stole 57,000 and city feels even smaller. It's more like what 44,000 right. So you're talking 4400 people and again. It's an open environment, right? You could sit people away from each other in such a way. Where I don't see why it can't be if if the restaurants that 35% right and usually most restaurants aren't cavernous in New York, right there, they're cozy. If they could be a 35% that why can't Yankee Stadium and Citi Field be a 35%? When they're outside? Where there's much less transmission? It just doesn't make any sense to me. Right. So I want to go to a game. I would imagine ticket will be almost impossible given that you know you've taken away 45,000 seats for every game. But even when you're there, I mean, it's gonna be weird with just 5000 people in there that the governor has to rethink this and say, all right? If it's 35% for restaurants, then it should be 35% for for home games, and then you're talking more like I don't know 20,000 people and you could live with that. That's the Yankees basically in 1991 under the stump, Merrill Yeah, I could handle that. There was something that we absolutely should consider going forward Tim Brando coming up Fox Sports. That should be really fun to get a lot of interesting things to talk about. But first Job.

"konta" Discussed on Christoph Trappe: Business Storytelling Podcast
"How does the information travel from your first interaction at the airport when you try to get into the airport facility and you need to pass the all these different places in order to get on an airplane yet you know that choreography of the data that travels with you has to go through. I a kiosk or person where you present a ticket or scan something. You may have to insert a passport. If you're going our country and that passport will be read. By a banner you may have to use a fingerprint or i cut sensing technology to identify who you are. You may have to. If you're going through certain places right a declaration in sign a piece of paper with a pen or pencil you have to present information to a person a verbally when you encounter a customs official and all. That stuff needs the choreograph. All of that is not really a writers job it's a content choreographer konta engineers job at to figure out how all that's gonna mash together so that you can get on the plane effectively and there's just so many examples of the life cycle of content. How travels through individual people's journeys with different companies. That i feel like if we don't look at this as a discipline that needs some improvement where we're going to be slow to catch up with the people who are already doing it really well d- d- do you think that writers words methods as you call them. Can they learn all of this or is it like a totally different discipline. Your question is can they in the answer is some can and The question might be better asking as do they want to. The answer is a lot of dough and they're also is a kind of Need for people with specialized skill right. If you don't wanna be commodity. Is you have a niche. So if you're writer in your expertise is writing about diabetes care for medical devices company for example your knowledge of the these and the medical advice might you up enough and prevent you from the commodities. But my my thinking is companies are specifically looking for ways to get rid of riders. They do not is it not is not an exaggeration to say that if they could get rid of you they totally would and and the thinking goes something like this. We pay software developers and product developers to develop products. They went to university. They learned how to write. They can speak in english or whatever are native languages that were producing continents. Why can't they. They can write the code and they can ride the product descriptions. Why can't they just write the products air messages. I can't they the graphic user interface. Why can't they read the documentation. Nobody's saying that they should write the marketing. Which is interesting. The marketing people have somehow kept themselves of on the sidelines and not been replaced but think about the enormous gains. You could get if you can have somebody who writes code also right the documentation right the you know. The this ancillary materials that go along with it. But that's not happening. And so i think in order to figure out what writers would be good at. It has to do with their natural inclination where they interested in. What are they willing to do. If you're not willing to learn new things you're not participating. This are the growth right. Because it's all about what know it's not about who you know who will not help you. Communicate with multiple machines across multiple networks in different countries with different regulations with different technology is too complicated. A a matrix for people do manually and their existing knowledge is insufficient to help them compete digital marketing for your small to medium medium-sized.

Xbox Series X and PS5 are coming: Here's what we know about their launches
"So the XBOX series acts and playstation five are on tap for the holidays. What do we know about their launches right now? Not A ton we know they're both launching. Ideally they're both could be launching in November. We still don't know what Games are going to be launching with. We still don't know. Exactly how many versions are going to be launching? So there's still a lot of questions that should be clearing up with the next month right and and I guess, importantly, we don't have pricing information yet. Right we don't actually know how much these things cost right we there is a range that we're looking at The ideal ranges is going to be between four, hundred, five, hundred. But both of the consoles are also looking to bring out a serve cheaper version. And that price may maybe even below four, four, hundred dollars but the expected is between four and five hundred for both concerts. Got It. Is it weird that were so close to the holiday season without getting key information like price? It's very weird. It really comes down to threes the big events gaming of that happens in June that was canceled because of everything that's going on with pandemic and both companies have gone to their own digital events to. Show off what they're having to thing is they're doing it over multiple events and now they're just playing since I don't have to one up each other at one big show like he three. Now they're just playing chicken and see who's going to be the first to reveal their price and who's going to blink. So that's that's what's GonNa Happen. Is Idea that like whoever makes the first move? The second person of the second side can can I guess under theoretically undercut the other party or do you think these price ranges are already kind of set? The price rages. If they fluctuate, they may fluctuate a little bit like fix if somebody comes out tomorrow and says, Hey, our place h five, hundred dollars three likely backstops gonNA come onto hey, our xbox series x four, hundred fifty. So if there is going to be that that sort of a little just undercutting it's GonNa be about fifty bucks. I doubt it's one hundred dollar difference like it was with the xbox wanted to be as four right read so. Beyond. You know there's obviously graphical improvements with these Exactly are these systems boasting that would justify a warrant and upgrade for Gamer the arguably the big difference like you said, graphics are going to be better. That happens every generation. The big difference at they're both focusing on is storage and I know that seems like, Wow, store would a big deal but it comes hartrampf they're both using SSD drives so The biggest issue for the past two decades with OPCO, based systems is loading times, and this is what's going to get rid of that. SSD drives load up in fractions of a second. So you're going to have these big worlds that that startup without having to wait for the now loading and it's GonNa. Really. Revolutionized Council Gaming PC Games are useless because they have these SSD drives this the first time it's really becoming on the council and that they're really making full use of it to where. They're gonNA have where you turn off the game day you pop right into the game that you turned off or You could actually play multiple games and you could jump from one to another without having to load up. Have to have the whole game load up. You could actually just jump forward to whether playing from Halo and you want to go to fours of. These are going to be very convenience quality of life upgrades. That's Konta gamers have never experienced before.
COVID Has Changed Soundscapes Worldwide
"This is the sound of a neighborhood in Calcutta. India in December two thousand sixteen. It was recorded by residents who Konta Modum Dr. And this is what that same neighborhood sounded like on April first of this year after the covid nineteen lockdown. Like a unique place in time that we have to. Document for the future for sure. Amandine gas is a soundscape ecologist with the French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development. She supposed to be in the field, recording nocturnal sounds in southern France to evaluate the effect of light pollution on animals there instead she's at home, but she still recording now from her balcony, where normally she'd mostly be hearing traffic in my neighborhood, there's. An phoebe and I think it's frogs that are like in the relocated spacing. The neighbor desiree very loud. So at night there is the frog curse in the morning of the And you also like sounds of people in the gardens slight music in the bag. It's very relaxing. When the pandemic hit gaskin, three other colleagues put a call out to volunteers all over the globe, currently roughly three hundred people are recording one minute of outdoor sound. Every ten minutes for what's become the silent cities project the goal is to. Use Data set and make it available. All the data collected will be stored by the Open Science Foundation. As public data set, the recordings, says gallic offer opportunities in the future to. How we share our space with other creatures, and how we impact our outdoor space, it only the acoustic space, but also this piece in general you see you were seeing a little animal in the streets. So taking back this actual space for themselves. Even people were people were just walking all over the streets was like. Next suddenly like the Ridi- US, so I think it will help us to understand. That may be another way of living in city supposed to go. I hope so.
Creating an Interview Series for Blog Content
"I'm your host Dr Chris Cloney. Today's up so we're going to be talking about creating an interview series for blog content. This is the fourth episode in the content machine series. For those who've been listening for awhile you know Disa- long standing series that we do as part of the podcast back in episode eight. We DID THE FIRST EPISODE ON RANDOM. Topic blogging on episode eleven. We talked about three minute papers up so twenty-three we talked with content curation and repurposing. These are all things I've used in my business and in my blog at safety science were to build authority and bill traffic there. They were going to be talking about creating an interview series as part of your blog content so the biggest question that people ask quite frequently when they're starting a blog or even if they've been running a blog for six months or year even a couple of years is how do we increase traffic. How do I create content? They're struggling or you're struggling to create a flow create a process where you can actually go about creating content routinely getting into the world and use that to drive traffic. So that's really why in this episode and in the Konta machine series were focusing on content systems. How do you build a repeatable? Scalable process create unique content. That you can put on. Your website should drive. Seo Traffic they can share a broader to the community. How do you do that with not necessarily least amount of effort? But how do you do that in a way? That's leveraged so you're using your effort effectively and you're doing that over and over again and again you can leverage to create more content or create better content in your space become seeing authority so and this upsets specifically talk about wide focus on content systems or give eight steps to creating an interview series. What are the main benefits for this type of content? And we'll go through a couple of examples. He's there are people who pulled out websites. I pulled out As doing this in the academic space already they can go use and drive from for experience as always you can download the transcript podcast episode at grab blogger dot com slash forty seven. You're really nice. Pdf transcript of what we talk about also put in a swipe file for you. Mailing potential interviewees include things in. That's why follow that will talk about in this episode. Like getting right into the ask when you're reaching out including specific offramp for what people should do next and encouraging some gentle urgency in that email. So you want an example of how to reach out to people for your interview series. You can download that swipe file at grab liar dot com slash forty seven. So the big question you know why. Focus on content systems for your blog and it comes right back to the the biggest question that I'm asked all the time which I kind of mentioned was how do I create content. How do I drive traffic? How do the in a sustainable way that I'm not GonNa you know? Kill myself over timers. I'm going to be able to keep up with no shore at one point. Maybe you're blogging writing a post every day. I've done this for several months. But it's hard and chances are you're gonNA fall through at some point and you're just not gonNa feel like doing it. So that's why you really gotta go about creating processes and systems in your blog that you're creating content leveraging that content getting it out using it to get traffic using that to drive people back to your website stylish authority and then this is where you can go building your online business. So when I started with the safety science dot Com which was actually not called that website. It was called my dust. Explosion Research Dot com which is a terrible name very hard very easy to say well as casting but very hard to say people struggled understand it does safety scientists are much better. Name was her blogging. There I use what I call. Random topic blogging. This will appeal due at the start. I picked a science topic when flip through my textbook and said okay. I'M GONNA TALK. What's in chapter two on combustion of single particles or something like that? Research heavily created amazing images. I wrote all the material in a word document. I proof read it uploads to wordpress proof-read again. You never believe copy stuff incorrectly into wordpress than I sit there and think about it for a while and be worried about people seeing the content and feel like You know who might have put this onto the world. I'm an maybe I'd press publish. That was like my my life for the first month or two of having my blog doing this random topic blogging. It's inefficient. It's not scalable. It's overly difficult and you won't. You won't keep up with an idea of where the other although thankfully I started thinking about how to implement systems into my blog and systems into created my content which got me to where I am today and away from that random topic. Blog clue trick years to find something that works for you and stick with it for at least an extended period. Stick with it. Maybe you're maybe doing a lot of reading of technical or scientific papers right now than the three minute paper process is one that you can use to create content. We talked about this again. Backing episode eleven. Or maybe you're bored of researching and reading technical articles in your in a different stage in your doing courses or something so that you're you're not heavily into the research. Then maybe you can focus on content curation repurposing making him publish a weekly blog post covering the ten most important topics in wildlife science wildlife. Ballsy or something. I don't know making it up in the world today and use Google alerts to pull that information in repurpose into a blog post repurpose into a newsletter and use that content curation repurposing. We talked about this again. Backup so twenty three. So if you're getting this idea that content machines are content systems or creating a better way to go the news blog. About what you think about your right. That's the whole point. I'm trying to make with these different stories in this episode. We're GONNA talk about just one other another option creating an interview series. I really liked this. I've used it a bit in my blog but I've seen other people actually use them more effectively. That's why want clue examples at the end of this podcast episode. So what is an interview series so this interview others usually within a similar background to yourself or a similar background or your audience. It could really be about anything but generally you get them talk about their experiences. Their successes or struggles or difficulties really depends on the genre that you enter the scientific area in whole points to interview them about their life and their experience or their research and then put as blog posts on your on your website. So it's kind of like guest posting except you reach out to them do an interview either ridden or you can even do these over the phone and then type that often natural blog post. So how do you go about creating an interview series then? I came up with eight steps to do this process. Seven number one is to pick an overall topic so this should be one thing that you really focusing on an interview series. Maybe doing ten interviews on jobs after finishing PhD or series on things you can do with a molecular biology degree. Your I don't know what it is but picking overall topic for your interview series. This is similar to what I did when I create expert Roundup Post. But it's more broad. I didn't ex- around post. I came up with two specific questions. Dog were then step to came up to questions and sent out to experts in my field created one single post to it. This is similar. You WANNA couple overall topic. But you're doing interview about each individual person so step number two is to create your list of questions so these are the questions. You're going to ask the interviewees things like what is your background. What program are you in? What's your favorite thing about this topic? What's your least favorite thing? We'll just topic. What advice would you give somebody else? The typical ones and you can ask the same question to the people. You're interviewing Rican even bury the questions depending on their background. I like doing the same question as a reader. I kind of find interesting to see how people respond to same questions as also pretty interesting. Then you can do again coming back to leveraging you can do sort of mega poster medicos where you look at. Every maybe ten responses to the same question and pull out those underlying themes a step number to create your list of questions step number three to create your list of potential interviewees this where you scour social media your network you know people you know that you might be interested. Google earlier topic overall click on Google's recommended suggestions for similar keywords or key phrases what websites are coming up what blogs are coming up. Those are probably great people to add to your list of potential interviews and this could be a one time thing again doing ten interviews or five interviews or three interviews to interview series or it could be something you do on your blog every month. You do one interviewer every two weeks you posted interview and both these are methods. That can work but you need a list of to be able to go through so step number one number two and number three number four say. Create your template outreach email so this really important if you're you're reaching out to many people at once the guy different extra round of post I think I reached out to something like sixty people or something like that and I sent us a similar email to all sixty of them had come up with a template so it's really easier if you don't make it very specific problem being a very specific as you're never going to send the wrong name with the wrong background information or something kind of silly so. I like to send a general email out and maybe only do a sentence or two something specific to it so this process gets released Iffy create template on the general line. That uses hello. I add a personal feature. Hope it's the weather's Nice and Florida at this time of the year. I don't know it is something like that. Now you straight to the point. I'm emailing you to see if you'd be interested in doing X. Being involved in project why you really WANNA say get straight to the point within the first paragraph or two about what you're asking Then do a paragraph about why you're asking it then give them an offramp. Tell them exactly what to do next. If you're interested hit reply and we'll set a time to do the interview if you're interested here the questions and replying. Email me back your responses. You know you gotTa tell them exactly what you want them to do. Make it easy for the make of them brainless to take that
The 7 Best Marketing Conferences 2020
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to talk about the seven best marketing conferences to go to in twenty twenty. I will start with the first one. I'm always looking at content marketing world. I think that's a great one because you have the best content marketers in the world talking about the Trans and the content marketing means not just konta marking. We're talking SEO as well. We're talking about how demand generation fills in with that too. We're talking about social media too so I think that's always a good one to take a look at number two traffic and conversion summit San Diego. Now they're trying to do events on the east coast as well in different states or countries. The reason I like traffic and conversion summit as you got marketed from all types of industries like INFO copywriting ECOMMERCE SAS and. They're sharing different tactics that they're using so most conferences out there. You'll see segments. Small businesses only or only enterprise fortune one thousand companies. But the reason I like. This is the variety of size of companies and the industries gives you a very broad range of new marketing tactic. style that you may have not heard about before. Yup That's plus one on that one. The last couple of years on three good so number three inbound inbound is put on by hub spot and actually become a really big congress. They actually have really good keynote speakers and just learning a lot about inbound marketing strategies in general so. I think the conferences. Maybe I might be wrong here. But over. Twenty thousand thirty thousand people or so. It's become really big. Neil yes a huge event number four so if you WANNA get into marketing or do while you may not have the to spend a ton of money paid ads. You may not have the time for. Seo So what other option do you have? I love performance based marketing specifically affiliate marketing. And you can check out affiliate world. Affiliate world has a ton of affiliate conferences throughout the world. Whether it's in Asia or Europe the. Us version is affiliate summit. And at this event. You'll not only need a lot of people that can grow your traffic also learn about Philly at tactics but the reason I liked the event is more so you can meet people who will promote your product or service for you and only charge you a fee. Every time they drive you lead or a sale all right so this is number five. I think so. Gartner Marketing Symposium. That's happening I think it's June and basically I mean Garner's while no research firm but the talk about insights top on new technologies strategy all that kind of stuff all marketing cool stuff and I think it's in San Diego Neil number six marketing school. Eric and I are marketing school. We have an event. It's in San Francisco March eighth ninth and Tenth. Which is actually very soon. You can learn more about marketing school dot. Io Slash live and we have really unique speakers and education that you can't get anywhere else.

And then another one. Beverly Hills that one's November ninth through the eleventh. But we're trying to keep the group purposely small so that's another thing around it. The last one I'll put in. Here is the adobe summit so adobe is really good at just kind of all things around design but have a whole kind of creative cloud as well. This has about twenty thousand.

Su and I'm tell- and today we are going to talk about the easiest way way to make your wordpress blog. Seo Friendly's of wordpress. I believe it's what thirty three thirty four percent powers the web. Is that correct at something ridiculous like that. In other words I bet you I bet you for this podcast. Maybe seventy eighty percent of the people here are running on a wordpress site or wordpress depress blah. You and I are yeah we both are. IBM Majority of Law Right. 'cause markers prefer wordpress. Is this from that. You can use. Then you don't have to be a developer you just click some plug ins. Yep so I guess I'll start off on this. WanNa make your wordpress blog. Seo Friendly there's to wordpress plug INS that you can use that. I I've always liked over the years and I think it's probably the same for Neil as well you could use one called joost. SEO THAT'S WHY O. A. S. T. Seo great plug in also another really. Good one is all in one. Seo You can expect some good changes some amazing changes that will be happening with that that plug in soon so make sure we kind of way the both of them I think the all in one the second one I mentioned has been around for a while longer neil yet and also also check out rank. Math it's really good for beginners. Funny Enough I was talking to Siad who arrogant I know. He does a lot of them. Were pressed up rank. Math is probably Econo- eventually at the pace they're going I think they will end up dominating the SEO plugin space. They've just done a really amazing job building the plug. Let's focus this episode so on Plug Ins because people can do it easily for wordpress right while other plug ins do you use to make your website. Seo Friendly Yeah so if you WANNA talk about speed. Then there's to plug INS that I've shared in the past. WBZ rocket is one of them and then short pixel is another one. And then for me I also use a plug in called structured structured content helps me do Faq page Schema and that allows me to boost my rankings really quickly literally sometimes in thirty minutes because allows me to have related questions right underneath my listing and that has helped me boost my rankings because it takes more space more people. Click it and again google's Google's using user metrics to determine rankings does click full have a wordpress plugin or click full does have spoken but we have an updated it for a while because we the what's interesting is to your point earlier when we look at our number of users percentage wise. It's about twenty percent of people that are on wordpress so nonetheless click full has is a free version or free trial in wordpress. You'll write content Samir countable naturally. Do well some of it won't and that's you know Konta mark in many cases a hit or miss game name but by adjusting your title Tags Meta description you can get more clicks which then helps boost your rankings as well that goes back to use your signals and you can use click flows. wordpress plugin to help you with that as well. What other plug INS DIS air? I find myself. This is more like an affiliate plug in but if you're going to do any type of affiliate stuff at all you do need to make sure so I I use a tool called pretty links and pretty links allows me to make. Let's say I have a really ugly affiliate url so it might be like. I duNNO SOFTWARE DOT COM. And then it's just like twenty six characters after after dots and what I can basically do is say. Hey I want to go to that your L. But I want to make it a very simple. You are alex single dot com slash pro that actually drives to my subscription for the leveling up podcast. So that's much easier to remember that simpler on the ice and basically what I can do. I can track a lot of these separate links that I'm making an also I can make sure from an SEO perspective maybe. I don't WANNA pass link juice to those pages right. I can also switch those pages up or switched links up whenever I want so it just makes things things a lot more flexible. So it's good for affiliates and it's also good for making sure that you could manager links at scale and making sure you're not just linking to a bunch of really nasty websites dot might actually hurt you another plug in that. I use is polly Lang. So polly Lang allows you to quickly expand your press blog anti multiple regions. Does everything being eaten yet to Manley. Translate your content but the reason why blogs run so fast Matt like six or seven million visits a month on my blog now but a lot of it comes from international national. 'cause they translate my content and polly Lang has helped a lot with that. So check that out and then I also use a cell insecure content fixer sir so everyone wants her content to be. HTTPS checkout that plug in as well that helps. Yeah the final thing say from my side is this is more related to the content marketing side. But if you have any writers outside that are helping you create content. I like having some sort of checklist for people to follow. So I think there's a plug in called. WBZ blogging checklists. And then basically when people are writing for you. There's GonNa be checklist on the bottle is this. I'm just GONNA throw some examples out there like maybe chocolates as each proce needs to be like twenty thousand words which is crazy. Don't use that as an example or you need to have a you know you need to have an image in the blog post you did have a basic there following your guidelines so everything that that is coming out of is going. It'd be much easier for your editor to manage. And then from there. You should be able to grow your traffic more consistently because you're following a process if not process broken. Probably go back and fix it. You WanNa make things very simple and stupid for people
Don't Forget These Marketing Oldies But Goodies To Grow
"Today we are going to first first and foremost wish you a very happy new year. Today is twenty twenty. It's the first day of well the first day of the New Year and It's it's time to get inside inside the hustle so basically we are going to talk about a couple of things. These are oldies but goodies. To help you grow basically you know. oftentimes oftentimes Neil I. We're talking about the new things new tools. We talk about new new all the time but we want to bring it back and talk about the things that actually still work well and hopefully this will maybe give you a reminder on. Hey maybe that one idea that you had that maybe it was like an old idea. Maybe you come back and you try it right. So the first thing I'm going to recommend for my side is webinars so webinars are something that when you think about how click funnels built their business from zero to over a hundred billion dollars a year in revenue. They really built their business off the backbone of of Webinars webinars allow you to build trust at scale the allow you to drive traffic to put them into a funnel and you could sell products. You could sell bundles. You can sell courses. It's still something that's really effective. Even though attendance rates are still going down by tool I liked using when it comes. The webinars is live storm. And it's been great. I think it sped better than other webinar tools that I have used so Don't forget webinars another thing that I would do. And this is the Oldie as well but it will work so well in the New Year in two thousand and nineteen. I did this in two thousand eighteen as well a we really stepped on it in two thousand nineteen but there's nothing about this. We all have tons of content. KONTA marketings been around for ages. Now I myself only right four or five blog posts a month i. I don't have time to write too many more than that. In other words I blog once a week and my team on the other hand they update ninety pieces of three people full time time just update ninety pieces a month so they give you idea even though I'm writing for five. My team is updating over ninety. That's been one of the biggest traffic drivers for army in two thousand nineteen and I bet you it'll be thousand and twenty as well to give you idea in two thousand nine hundred eighty nine more than doubled my traffic all right so from I n texting and when I say texting I've talked about Messenger. I am also talking about just as a messenger. General if you look at Tokyo. Tokyo is basically. They're like a a taxi company. Basically they help you on there. They have a good. API that you can use while Tillerson publicly traded company under stock price has been rising over time. And if we look at Facebook Messenger when we when I spoke to Al For many chat previously a couple years ago. They're getting a million messages ages a day going through their platform. Now it's two hundred sixty six million messages per day so it's getting bigger and bigger and when you think about it people like that. They liked that touch. So you know recently the growth accelerator If you go to marketing school the live you can actually go learn more. But a lot of people will put in their number and then we'll set of attacks ask you if they have any questions about and some people will respond and that way we actually got You know from that point will actually try to get it a real conversation. Set up a call dead but you know it's just a really nice touch wood you're able to utilize techs and if you're GONNA US tax dry. Sending as I text their first name question marks like Eric Question Mark we found that gets the highest response and then wants to respond from there. Then you can follow up and then close him. But in addition to texting as Eric mentioned facebook messenger there's many chat mobile monkey I would also leverage push notifications. These are the type of channels that not too many people are talking about yet. You can bring people back to your site. The the opt-out rates are extremely high on both of them but the optin rates are very high as well. And it's another channel that you should be using in addition to email great of speaking evil. I think e mail is something that we should be calling out to because people tend to say. Oh look there's all these new channels but e mail. Is that one channel where nobody can take it away from you. You build up that email list and you market to those people And you can basically tight a dollar value for each subscriber that you have so the whole idea is all oh stuff that we talk about with. Seo We talk about with social we talk about. She's those things could actually be taken away from you but if you focus on you know we talk about authorizing of you're you're having some type of lead magnet that you can offer to people where they can take a resource for you but you build up the mls time you as long as that. That list is engaged. And you're you're providing more value constantly that what's going to happen is you're gonNA have a good engaged audience of people that will buy you. Whatever you publish something that is Worthy be a bike. Another thing that you can do is leverage tool so I believe tools is a new content marketing and to give you idea back in two thousand and three on my I ad agency CY. I create adding create. I bought a tool for thirty or forty dollars popped it on my website and it was a free. Seo Jio toll. I've done the same thing now with Uber suggests although I spent probably way too much money on a boat the time it was the most popular section of my sight. Now you don't have to go crazy like uber suggest anything like that. You can do a mortgage calculator quiz whatever it may be. You've got a Code Canyon. It's a site where you can buy tools and just pop them on your own side and white label. It's pretty easy flexible. It's dirt cheap. Sometimes you can get some of these tools for like under ten dollars dollars and on the more expensive maybe twenty thirty dollars but check that out. It's easy to add to your site in a great way to get more traffic. You'll typically find within like three to six months adding tool to your site. It should be one of the top ten pages even if you do little to no marketing

Why the exclusion of women from data matters
"Treating men as the default. Human and economic planning is not only costly for society for the practice can also be deadly for women when applied to things like medical trials. This is the case made by Caroline creo. Peres in new book invisible. Women exposing data bias in a world designed for men Fritz student talk to business editor Sarah, Gordon about the arguments put forward. Sarah tennis this book by Caroline created Peres invisible. Women what exactly is the problem that she's seeking to diagnose we've heard about quite a lot and you've written extensively on things like the gender pay gap. But this is a different aspect of the gap between men and women. Yes. Yes. I mean, what she's to hear about is the gender data gap, which she defines as the absence of women in a whole range of databases, which then affect resource allocation and policy decisions in healthcare in call design in disaster relief in a is so cheap not only gone as the evidence of that absence. But then talks about what the consequences are. And in some cases, the consequences are really serious. I mean, and then some extraordinary examples that I have confess personally, I wouldn't have thought of. I mean, it's everything from. How seatbelts might be designed to medical equipment how it's calibrated? But even an examp-, which are the you deployed in your review of the book about how you plan for clearing of snow. I mean, it's extraordinary the range of of s where this is prominent. Yes, the snow clearing. One is a very good example. It's a town in Sweden which decided to include women in the data that used to decide its nuclear policies. They wanted to done is it had prioritized clearing. Snow? I from the roads before getting to the pavements, and it looked at patents of accident and injury in winter snowfall situations, which in Sweden on many and decided to reverse that priority. So to clear the pavements rather than the roads. Now that not only benefited women in one particular way in that there were more women on the pavements than on the roads and women. On the pavements were also suffering more than men on the roads in the sense that pushing a buggy or a shopping call talk being an elderly woman and walking on a pavement. It turns out. His actually more dangerous. Are you're more likely to be injured than driving a car through the snow? So number one benefited women, but it actually also benefited the public purse because what they found is that the cost of injury accident emergency admissions lost work time in terms of broken bones. Whatever that actually they made a huge saving just by reversing that policy priority. And that's one of the examples that she uses to look at the positive benefits of including women in the data. But what she does more of in the book whose look at the whole range of negative consequences from excluding them and some of these are actually life threatening. I mean, we talked about seatbelts. It gets worse. Yes. So the car design chapter is. Pretty shocking in the sense that driving seats all designed predominantly for the male body. And indeed creo Peres talks a lot about this idea of the default human, and the default human, of course, is not just a man, it's also a white, man. So what she also points out is that the ethnic gender data gap is even larger than just the gender date gap. But one of the things I found my shocking was the healthcare chapter. So in some cases, because a lot of healthcare databases that mainly men there, actually, mainly young men who take part in a lot of clinical trials, one of the reasons is their availability. But another is that women are simply too variable. She has this tastic phrase, which she takes from Henry Higgins in my fair lady. Which is why Konta women be more like command, which is a song. That Henry Higgins sings in the musical my fair lady. And this is one of the root causes for the problems. With healthcare data is that women all as they are all is actually easier to measure, male healthcare indicators. Anyway, the consequences of this are that for example, in the US the level of haunt activity at which you have a pacemaker fitted has been set based on male data. It should be lower for women, and therefore women are not having pacemakers fitted in situations where the loaves could actually be saved because of it. So the gen dictator gap. She oak us doesn't just have consequences for urban planning or whatever it's actually in some cases fatal for women. I'm one of the other really interesting what she did was around disaster relief and the response to the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone in and she talks about the fact that a lot of the age was in the form of food aid, the food aid went into the quarantine dare is but people providing it didn't think to provide the fuel. So women who cook the food. We're going out of the quarantined areas to get the fuel to cook the food that was being brought into the quarantine dares to stop them leaving it, and of course, spreading the disease by doing. So I gather she also goes beyond the human if you like to also look at how this system if you like is being now extended into the world of AI algorithms also with negative consequences. It's very interesting book. But this is probably the most interesting, and I think also the most important message in her book is that what she argues that the situation the gender data gap is not just there. It's actually worsening wealth of an improving and one of the examples she gives for that is a I and the databases on which is based for example, the software that's used to scan CV's. She gives the example of a software platform cool guild, which does the first sweep of CV's for technology companies to that employee. All. An interview software coders, and it has decided the software has decided that a particularly strong predictor of coating power is how much time you spend on a certain Japanese online manga site now as you doubtless know manga saw its are not female friendly for lots of reasons also women research shows have less spur time to go on line gaming. Yeah. That's your line and you'll sticking to it. And therefore, the that's being used to preselect potential candidates is already excluding women from those databases. So what she's saying is that a in some instances is not just perpetuating biases. But actually amplifying them in science fascinating. She's obviously done a lot of research and his diagnosing a lot of problems does she put forward solutions. How this could be redressed corrected. I mean is it possible to actually remove these biases easily? I mean, the bias is so broad ranging that she doesn't say that it's difficult to do that what she's proposing. And I think it's one of the reasons why it's a very good book. His because she makes the point that in most cases, this is not a wilful exclusion of women from research or from data. It's an absence a lack of presence, if you know what I mean, it's not willed. It's not malicious, and this it simply in many cases. Is that the often men who are collecting the data don't see what they're doing? So as much of this whole debate. And that's why it's relevant beyond just data is that it's about a recognition of the problem goes some way to solving the problem. And in fact, a lot of this is not rocket science. I mean thinking about for example, designing replacements for slum environments in Brazil, you don't just move apartment blocks. You move schools you move families. So that grandparents could go looking after children, you know, it's not rocket science as soon as you see it. It's completely obvious. What should be done, but you need to see it to do it. So I mean in summary. You would say this book is an important contribution to that.

So that doesn't materially change that. And there's there's lots more to say about WikiLeaks and Email and the Trump Tower meeting and the violations by the Trump foundations and Bank fraud. There's all different areas of legal vulnerability, and we learn stuff, but none of the things that we learned by itself completely transforms the legal landscape, David Graham, what about you any big takeaway from today. Well, I agree with Molly about the check and the checks in the payments in general the other thing that jumped out to me is a couple of Cajun's Cohen declined answer questions because he said they were. Something that was covered by the southern district during York investigations. In fact, he said that he was aware of potential misconduct or crimes by Trump. But he couldn't talk about them. Because of that, it's hard to know what that means or how big it is. But it's potentially very large depending on what that might entail. And I'm interested to see what we learn about those interested to get as many of your questions and thoughts as we can one a at W A M U dot org.
