The New Backend Engineering Lead at TextUs - Brittany Martin
"By corner of the world is very different and so I think I've kind of alluded to it on some of the episodes we've recorded up to this one but nick, you are my very favorite co host. So of course, I waited until you were back on the podcast so that we could discuss all the changes but I have recently shifted roles. So I quietly changed my linked in quietly changed my twitter and my get hub but I am the new engineering lead for the back end at text us. Congratulations that is that is huge right I don't even know where to begin but. I guess the best place is at the beginning. So how long ago? Did you kind of find your way into the world of Texas yeah. So ask the listeners know I've been at the trust for about five years, which was fantastic because I leveled up. So much of the trust, a lot of my conference talks that I gave came from the work that. I was doing at the trust I loved those working at a nonprofit affecting the arts and the Pittsburgh community because when I came back from San Francisco, I really wanted to get re-involved with Pittsburgh and there was no better place to do it with the trust being a small nonprofit and you know there was only so many places that I could grow up words. I decided to start considering my options, and so I came across Texas and text. US. Basically is a business class text messaging software and they're built in rails, which of course, is very important to me as the host of this show to continue working on ruby on rails. So you know I have bet my career on it. And the Texas currently serves the ASS staffing recruiting industries mainly though they also serve a lot of different industries but it's a really interesting and complex code base and they use a lot of the dry principles, which is that I was somewhat familiar with, but I hadn't worked one on one with. So how about you neck? Have you used a lot of dry rb? So when you dry principles, do you mean like actually using like dry rb and the dry rb tooling and the ghost? Yes heavily on my goodness. So I have literally just wandered so far as hearing about it in a podcast or you know and I and I, think I follow the maintainers on twitter and reading about five never crossed that threshold to actually using it even in a in a toy up. So House have been. kind of seeing that world is imagine it's quite interesting. Yeah. I'm coming off of a code base where we used a lot of service objects. So in some ways, there are some principles there that are somewhat familiar where you don't stack all of your logic into your models and controllers, but dry principles. It's just it's very clean and I'll tell you that during the interview process with Texas, which first of all was a really fantastic. Interview Process and I hope a lot of companies have processes like this it my process probably took I would say about five weeks and that involved a lot of one on one in conversations with their product manager the CTO, their chief architect, my partner, who is the engineering lead for the front end and just really making sure that it was a good culture fit and then I ended up doing a pairing session with the chief architect and. What was neat about it is that we tackled some very rails lia problems, but then as towards the end of the interview. He gave me some examples of how my code could change to actually reflect those dry principles and how that is how they manage the code in code base and I left that interview just ceiling. So intrigued about how I feel that I knew ruby on rails fairly well, but just seeing it in that sense it got me really curious and I was like this is this is. going. To. Be Great for my career. It must be amazing to get another set of eyes because I have to commend you you know. There's A. Strong trend in tech where people you don't hear the five years that often anymore. I don't think you you see is short as eighteen months to I'd say, even three years I'd look at unlinked and say, wow, that was a while. So so it's definitely you know there's all the. Normal aspects of changing changing a job but I think from a code aspect just saying these different ideas you know and. It's like a super learning experience all over again if you're around a bunch of intelligent people working in this code base and and especially with tooling that you may not have used before so must be. An absolute thrill.

"Twenty two. I said. It's which they can three and a half years for your case to even be heard, and that will the arena half years for you waiting to find out if you get life rally at three and a half years, sentence me to life. Hearings for about a year. And it was a big to do when I went to court, and I had braces and I went to the medical college to get my braces tightened, and that was a big to do I mean it was? I guess I shouldn't scream because it. It's surreal. There were people lining up the sidewalk on the for the entry into the prison or entering into the courthouse, and they were men with bouquets of roses, because they'd seen my picture in the newspaper and I have Indian features and people often mistake me for being from from the Southeast Asian continent and so and I. I was young and cute and so they. Were proposing to me and were petitioning with my lawyer to be able to marry me and save me, and then we would you know hoping I would take back to America once I was free kind of thing so I had going to court as a you know to be convicted of heroin smuggling, and I've got literally throngs of young men and mothers of young men. Waving and calling out to me cheering on me like a movie star on the red carpet. But Nancy, SAR a throngs of people who want still want to use you, but in a less creepy way than us right. Yeah. The American they want to use the American cars. Beauty of life. Is You're? Never ceases to you never cease to encounter a new way that somebody wants to use your. New Twist. Yeah, so but I I went I. Went to court you several times and The man will typically in that culture. There's a man and a woman accused together in a case. It's you know. They were intimately involved and committed this crime together in you know, and so that was assumed and encouraged by the jerk. Was a accused with me the Tony and so I would go to court, and they would be like you know due to wants some time alone. Turn your stomach. I was like Oh God. Do you know this man ruined my life? I'd never laid eyes on him until a day I was arrested. Real and people ask me like. Where's have you heard where Tony is? But that's like I. Don't give frats Password. That guy is I hope. He's running in prison. Still you know, but I mean I understand. There's a curiosity because he's. He's part of the story when I tell it on on national, geographic and so. Like it's technically. I could care but I really really don't care, and I've never asked or looked for it, but so went to High Court, and they asked me to lie about my age in order to be able to help me like if you're only eighteen now than you're under age when you were arrested and we would before i. Let you go. Like no I'm I'm twenty two I send my ID. Will will show that the American government can can confirm it like go. Paperwork can be forged. We wouldn't be able to rely on paperwork alone if you told us that you're on I was really and I said I really I'm flattered, but it was not gonNa let I wasn't going to feel like they were trying to lure you into a trap. Could show that you were lying. That would make it. I think my I. Think they were really they? There was a lot of sympathy for me in the media and I think they really were looking for a way to let me get out of jail here. Because the the the I would have thought that public opinion would have been hanger you. There was there was an element of that, but it was not from from what I gathered. which you know, my my perspective I'm sure was skewed, but it was a lot of popularity. Who thought you know the American girl? She's so young and she's so innocent, and let's let's. And unless you had a family who was serving time for similar crimes, you are very sympathetic. Describe what what you were feeling and thinking when? You were thinking. I'm going to be in here the rest of my life. What what is what is that like well? When I when I was arrested, and I I heard from the that they weren't going to be able to get me extradited. I said well. Look. You have to get me out of here. I'M GONNA. Kill Myself. I am not stay the it was horrible I didn't speak the language. At that time it smelled opportunity lay on, these people were just, and you were part of the and I was in my aunt cell, but I still I. You know when I went in the headed woman in the jail. You know spent a lot of time examining my chest like I might have been hiding something in my boobs. Really just been a lot of time as I really. Getting off a little friendly. Yeah, and so I. Just I want I was creeped out I. wanted to leave and and then when they sentenced to thirty years. is really knew that was going to happen a few days beforehand because they interrupted another drug case in the middle of its trial mid witness and A sentence of, thirty years because. The embassy said you have to have a precedent of setting of sentencing a woman from your country for similar case before you can send it to an American to whatever? So they, they stopped this woman's hearing and charged her finish her life. She got up and it technically but. The president that the president so I knew I was, she came back to the good news. Bad News. And I was like what she goes well. Bad News is you're going to get life? The good news is I'm GONNA. Technically because I just had the precedent for you and it was in the middle of my hearings. She rule really said that to you. Did you kick her in the face? No, no, she was kind of a tough through to strangle her with her Sarong No she came in, she was grinning. She's folding her cry. They have a Sarong. Even the term. Sorry. Yeah, her sorry, she had the convict sorry on, and she's pleading it and just grinning ear, and she's obviously here in a month at the most. Yeah how do you? Mike God. When all you know, I mean I I'm pretty good at not blaming the Messenger Yeah and let's not forget to your complicity in this. You know the fact that you yes, you. You were somebody who had experienced tough childhood, and and had you know certainly been taught a lot of fucked up lessons, but you still chose to do this stuff. Really and you know I I don't want to I. Don't want to gloss over that and make it. Make it sound like You're the victim and all this night. I get the sense that you feel that we are. Surrounded, by women who are in victims, and had been framed and had been I mean there was the occasional actual murderer who described killing the four year old son of her senior wife, but there was a lot of people who were there for you know had not done since eighty year. Old Woman could barely lift your arm up. Ever had accused of killing a man who was thirty years old. She couldn't have done it. What what did that feel like? Being around. All of that all those sad stories it was, it was it was very humbling. And I wrote I wrote a poem one woman because her her Her kids were taken away from her and she she couldn't take care of them, and they took land away, and it was. It was very. humbling and he gave me a perspective on you know. My, my life had a lot of crap in it, but it was not that kind of crap like not losing my family graph or not having no food on the table, and you know wrongly imprisoned and taken away from infants and having the women could only keep their kids to a certain age. Even the gentleman went taken to an orphanage, and the bureaucracy was impossible to get your kids out after that so even if they got out of jail, the chances of reuniting with their children was very remote and in. Bangladesh have the caste system like a and e assistance. From the lower caste you're, you're less than a citizen. If even that right. Yes, so it was I got a sense of perspective and I and I..

"And. Of course, I didn't go to the cheap places for food because I was American I want wherever they had dollar. Symbols liked dollars exempted yes okay. I didn't exchange by money until much later. someone said to get some TACO. It's a lot cheaper views. Taka and I said Oh. Okay? Yeah, sure trump different money here I mean just completely ignorant. I mean for all the studying. I did for all the honors student. I wasn't high school. It just I had no no training or education of what to expect overseas. So Let me skip ahead. Stayed there. How how do you know I? Thought I was having fun got sick. Had A steak extra days, which worked out for them, because the guy bringing the drugs was delayed. And then had a really scary experience. I was going to run away. The Guy was late. Bringing me the drugs. The day is supposed to leave. It was a last year. My Visa and house like you know what I am going to. Escape like I'm not going to do this I. Don't want to miss my flight. I've been I'm just getting freaked out so The hotel had a policy where you check in your luggage when you check in, and then once you pay the bill, they give you this little coin thing that says your bills paid and the bellboy. We'll take the coin and take your luggage out. See you're not supposed to run off without paying your bill. While I was planning to do just didn't have enough money to pay the lead state, too many days of the Fancy Hotel, so I told my suitcase and I like sneak into my room into the stairwell that they go down and go out like the service desk service entrance. You know, sneak out. While I run schlepping the suitcase. Full of all these roses that I got because someone at the hotel was offensive, any well polity roses and I look the First Amendment, even giving me roses as I'm. GonNa, keep all of them so I'm running on the stairs with a suitcase full of flowers and stuff and I get to the bottom finally panting, and I opened the door thinking it's going to be at the kitchener, some service area and it is the middle of the lobby. In the middle of all the glorious mirrors and go crap. Sounds like well. Head down and just Kinda. Go you put my suitcase out and I'm trying to just walk in of course all the bellboys looking for their tip money. This is their livelihood throng to me, Oh. Can I help him a meme? Can I help you? Help your bags and I was like? No I got it. Where's your coin? We will carry you. No No, no, no, I've got it. I'm going to carry the whereas my coin crap, and as this is all happening. The the Guy Tony that was bringing the drugs shows up and he is a very scary person. He's not Mr Rico. Suave eight that I met in Texas. He's intense. He's very hardcore and and he's spotted me and I was like. He came across news. Like where are you going? And he grabbed my passport out of my hand and. You're not running away. Here's your money. Go Pay Your Bill. Meet me out front. So I go out I go to pay my bill and they're like watching a your care. Okay, okay, and I said Oh. Yeah, yeah! I was raised at home that we didn't tell what my dad was doing abusing us. Because authorities aren't going to help you so I had this just mechanism and like you know, someone asks when someone asks you. If you're okay, you just say yes. You can't trust them to do anything so I didn't go to counselors at school when I was being abused, because they would break up the family and I didn't tell people at the desk I'm being coerced. So many things that a normal child I think would have registered and would have reacted differently because of what I went through I just Kinda. Head down took my punishment thinking that that's what I had to do. And so I did I. Through Shaw and he was mad and and I don't like anybody being upset at me. That's just my mentality from forever, even though he's in criminal. Until don't want him out at me for some reason like that matters. So, we went to his his guest house, which was the same guest house I'd been dropped off at which was how I knew that cab driver was a plant I was supposed to actually be. There would have been a lot easier. Part of why he was annoyed. But so he wanted to put them on my suitcase. The packages but I had all these flowers and too big metal vases that they come in. They were taking significant chunk of myspace and he says You can't take. These are GONNA fit throwing these away and I was like this is the moment. That I got some gumption. Worst moment was at this and I said no I. AM keeping those roses. You cannot tell me I have to throw them away. I'm keeping them their mind. They're staying. All right fine, then you're gonNA, have to wear the product. Is it okay fine I will? At this point that was the worst thing I get it done of your suitcase. You have some plausible deniability. There's so many reasons not to do that, but I decided to fight for my roses. Wow I know it's terrible, but so I put on this horrible girdle, and these packages of of the heroin were wrapped in coffee, grounds and spray opium perfume to kind of throw off the dogs..

"It was just there was a line somewhere between there that you just weren't comfortable crossing well I. We always wore tights underneath the lingerie, and we were never tallest. Okay. Yeah, so and it. It wasn't. It wasn't today's lingerie. Near nineteen nine. Also because it was a lot more than it was in a hotel bobby, which is certainly different, dark and. WAS NOT I was not naked was creepy classy. It was creepy classy. Classy and so I wasn't GonNa Strip I was not going to be taking my clothes off for money. I couldn't do it. It was not something I was comfortable doing so as a non not going to do that, and then while she was working there, she met this one of the customers. There was an importer exporter quote unquote and he said you know you're really special. You're very smart. You shouldn't be wasting your self here. You know you should work for me and mean say well well. We'll doing what and he says well I could get you a job. You could export some stuff from the important stuff for me from Bulgaria. and. A week week and a half you'd make ten thousand bucks cash and you could do that as often as you want it. So. She was well okay sure. So she comes home and she's like Oh. My Gosh, my Gosh I met. This guy is going to be great and wonderful feelable Gary. Can you believe it and as it Whoa? Are you sure it's going to be okay? And she says you had diamonds WTO. So, she went to Bulgaria. She calls me she staying at this fabulous five-star hotel. She went on a tour. She's you know it's so crazy here. It's so different because you know in Texas. It's no joke. Texas knows about Texas. There's not American not Texas America and then there's everything else. We, really, we really barely care your anything. That so Bulgaria was, we could have in China have been Mongolia was all. You know not not Texas. Where's the Mall Y'all? Where's the McDonald's Y'all? So she comes back and sure enough. She's got cash. You know he gave it to her in like twenty, two into Atlanta made her delivery some motel, and then got on the plane and came to Houston, and she's got money in her chest money in her shoes money on his Lindell that suitcase, so she didn't have to claim the ten thousand dollars. And I'll Oh my God. All I need is eight thousand and I can go school, and for like a thousand bucks, a piece of crap. Cox I didn't have my own car like she was might ride. She was everything so like might have a little mini leftover to help mom pay some bills. So I said well all right I'M GONNA. Talk to this guy. You know Bulgaria sounds exciting. You know, and so she took me to We went to this like olive garden. Big Fancy place and we meet this guy and he's blocked on them and he's wearing a suit. He's got kind of a British accent with his We speaks, and he says wow, you really. Are you're everything? She said very special. I'm like you know I. Think Corn How corny is that you know, of course it eighteen. That's exactly what I wanted to hear. Yes, of course I'm special. Look at me. and. He says you know I I really think that this would be a really good opportunity for you you. However you I'm thinking what you probably send you somewhere a little different with look you probably like thinking Bangladesh now I excuse me. What's a Banglore what? And he says Bangladesh. It's an India and I, said India! Wow with elephants and he said. Yeah I said okay. Well what you give me some details, or what am I taking? What? What are we transporting as? Well. It's actually says gold or diamond or something. He was nine exactly because it's worth more than waiting goal, though and I said well. What? And he says well. It's actually lip. synching goes. It's it's just it's heroin. And I literally jumped out of my chair. You couldn't have got you. Little lit a fire under my feet like I said on the on the show said you know what? Because, we had a friend in high school united his his brother committed suicide. And then he would write poems about how hurt he was losing his brother, because his brother got messed up on pills and he killed himself while then he proceeded. To get messed up on pills. And killed himself, and we went to his funeral, and his father, having lost, both of his sons stood up in front of the Church I. Please make a promise to me. All of you students that you will not ever have anything to do with drugs. I don't want any other parents to ever have to suffer this, so we made this pact like we all held hands and made a pact that we were not going to do anything with drugs, and so I'll just has it. Is that what you did. She says calmed down the A. sit down, sh-. You're freaking out relax. And as an I'm sorry. I won't do it I am not bringing drugs. into this country, I have little brothers, just no way. And he says you know. I appreciate that I respect that that's there's that's totally. That's totally understandable. Cindy she's got. She's got a point. Totally pandering to me and says. If I, had you take it to Switzerland? As practically legal, their reader's digest had just done a thing on needle park, which had actually read. And so he says as said Switzerland. Well. We do have a park and he goes to know what I will give you twice as much goes. You want to help your mom outright. You want to pay some bills for your mommy want to go to college. He goes twice as much as I gave her. She's going to be doing something really big for me and I said. Twenty! Dollars and this is what your nine hundred ninety one.

"Only thought our taxes in the last four or five years. So you believe that stuff? while. They're now. They can't prove how we're so quick. improver broke so I was unable to pay for college, and I'd gotten accepted, and still couldn't go so my best friend in high school she had she lived a few blocks up the road, but her parents owned that house we were we rented. We've have never owned a house. They'd never saved money it was you know somewhere, so she? Her parents own this house and she went on annual vacations like to know out here and things like that from Texas, and so, but she was bored. You know everything. She everyone and she got never had to work at it in her life and. And one of two children your life so excited she was like you've got so much drama like she would come and rescue me from the house like I would call her upset and and she you know. My Dad had gone off on me about something, and she would come into taking you out of here you're you're you're coming with me and we would go hang out at her in her bedroom, and and it freaked me out was in the morning she would get up and she had for a little tank top, and under on, she'd walk down the hall to go to the bathroom with her dad at the house and I was like. To close on goes, it's my dad and said. Right right normal. That's supposed to be okay so it. Really it was just it was I realized that that's like that's not. Everybody's experience and actually when I was in was your name or you don't have to say. Her sister didn't want me to mention anymore. She's passed since I got back so So I I. Just it was one. It's moments like that hit me and so in, but I didn't get into college. She says well, you know. Let's just without. She's I. Make You were both eighteen? We can move on an apartment. She had no desire to go to college. She was ready to put off here. She could she really kind of a party girl? Or when we went out to parties like the high schools, you know drama team I was all about drama high school, so I went to the senior cast party, and she would she would be the one that would get drunk and be smoking and start clinging to the really unattractive guy, and I was constantly pulling her off. Okay now it's time to go home and would drive her home, so we you I would. Would get silly to and when I was a bad night, she took me out and I got really really drunk and blacked out and apparently danced on the table at the male strip joint downtown. HOUSTON, and just in, but I apparently you. I needed that she liked. Let me just you know cut loose. And then she drove me home and took care of me that day I'll actually? She left me in her loan passed on her dress. Cheech let me sleep there. But but I was that was she was my my my Kinda, my anchor. You know I would go to her. And so when we moved out, she started modeling lingerie outfits, and doing the low raffle contest. That hotel lounges, and couple bars down in Galveston and so. I had eighteen years old. Of course you have acute figure who didn't look cute at eighteen so I did well at the crappiest place because I just was happy. Go Lucky La. It so but I hated it. I mean it was just that had been so painful for somebody who was objectified their childhood. It was. It's a weird. It's a weird thing. I think anybody who's been through childhood. Molestation can tell you it's. It's a weird thing. You want to be cute, you really. WanNa be cute in in recognized and appreciated, but then at the same time you hate yourself for being. For thinking about that and suddenly it's a bad thing. It's like you discover your POW power that you hate having, but it's powered on the less right and it's like. Is that what you like about me? Is that all the people I let me because I? Mean I I went on I to binge on facebook when I anyone else tells me I am sexy. I'M GONNA. Slap because I need more than sexy at this point and you know what a lot of men! I don't understand that the. Yes, women! Women want to be attractive with the THEY WANNA. Be More than that. They want to be recognized for their for their intelligence, their empathy or their sense of humor or something else. It's great to have the attractive thrown in as icing on the cake, but I think very few people want that to be the most important thing about them because it's going to change, you're gonNA. You'RE GONNA. You'RE GONNA. Get Old, and that's not going to be there forever, right? The thing I love about you most is disappearing every day. Diminishing as we speak so so so that was that was something I was doing after high school and I didn't I didn't like it, and I wanted to be to the commercials on TV now this is really it makes me laugh to think. But there was the Bradford Business School and they would show the girl like in her jeans and t-shirts. The board and you know she wants to do better, and then she goes to the Bradford Business Glenn. She comes out and that's executive suit with a briefcase. She's going, please. She's Bradford Grad and they had. Their my big dream was to have the money to go and become an executive assistant after graduating from Bradford Business School for. Instance I wanted a briefcase I wanted to suit and some little pumps, and so I went to the Bradford. School and they said it's eight thousand dollars and I was like Oh gosh. Okay well, we'll see and then I went back. And of course I didn't have to impending together bearing making barely paying our rant at this new apartment so. Said well. I'M GONNA. Start waitressing at this strip club. House like Oh, I could do that. I've always had fairly big top section, so I was like I should be able to get good tips if I go and waitress at a stripped so I went in to talk to the guy and he goes honey. With all of that you are not waitressing. You're going to be on my stage or you're not working here I. Don't know if he thought I was going to convince me. Like well, okay, then meet me a star. I was like well. I'm not working here because this is not going on display, so I was stuck once again, not being able to keep up with bill. No, they're making money now. Just let me stop you for a second what? Is In your mind, what was the difference between doing the lingerie modelling and and being in a strip club?.

And I learned that I could solve my problem and said through a violent since I couldn't communicate lonely guess I'm afraid that my genitalia is elderly hurtful. What was your role in the robbery I? Mean you never knew what you were going home to? Jar had teeth in it. I was a wreck. Other People's team. Yeah! With with Lia, mccord, and you know Leo, one of the great things about for me having a terrible memory as I'm going to almost get to hear your story again for the for the first. I was watching TV about I. Guess would be about six months ago. When I was watching this show, locked up abroad and I saw your story and I was like I would love to get her on the podcast because I for one. It's an interesting story, but to something told me that that there was. Something about your story that. made it good for for. This for this podcast Let's start from from the beginning and Are you comfortable talking about your childhood and stuff you went through? And what what? What was your home life like from growing up, it was difficult. I I come from a large family and my father. Six six of US next up where in Dallas Houston Texas for the most part, we traveled a little bit when I was younger bed around third grade. We settled down in Texas. And my dad was in computers. He was a consultant, so he did a lot of contract work, ten nine work and so when he didn't want to deal with the ten ninety nine hundred file taxes that led to my issues after high school, trying to get financing for college. But before we get to that probably a good to say what. PUT ME in mind. That I was a mindset that I was willing to make the choice I made at eighteen years old. And my father grew up in his own broken home, and as a result, the cycle continued with US I. Was Must sexually molested from the time I was seven years old, seven or eight years old until junior high school, and he returned him in multiple times, father, my father, my father and my mom, would you know? His Hispanic. Mom's Mexican and she wanted to keep the family together. It was a sign of failure for herself if she couldn't keep her family unit together so in Heart, Anderson her mentality, but she made some poor choices for the safety of as children in in an effort to maintain that unit that was fractured from so many levels, but So he went. He went to jail a couple of times before he was finally sent away for eighteen months. And and we went my sister, my brother and I were pulled out of my mom's house for years day with my grandparents in in Dallas Texas. And And then we came home and dad was still in jail, and we went to see him, and then he came out of jail, and he was in an apartment away from the house and. She took us to visit him. As soon as the you know unfit mother restrictions on him being there were lifted. She had him back in the house. And with the sexual abuse he was you know he was emotionally abusive. Yeah, we were. Stupid and we were spate. We went to school with long pants on all summer long. So it was you know as not happy. And he and mom would fight, and they would wake us up in the middle of night. Did the did he abuse and Once once he went to prison th th the sexual abuse to that. For the most part. He's still wanted me to sit on his lap inappropriately. Things like that would have I think. You know and mom. Would you say to him when he would I would I just look at him and I would shake my head. No one's and sit some rose. You were like seven or eight at that. When he came out of jail, I was I was fifteen fourteen and wanted you to sit on his lap at fifteen. So he really did not. Did Not Work on himself. He did not try to get to the root of wicked smart, and he read psychology books I knew exactly what to say. What not to say to pass their tests like what the picture is not supposed to look like shore master manipulator. Yes, very much, so which we inherited I think we have to catch myself, not doing your. Your other people It's so good that you're that you're aware of it. Though because most people that were manipulated then in turn learn how to manipulate, and that's their blunt tool. They're coping mechanism, but typical had so so so that was what was going on so high school I was constantly trying to get him to be proud of me despite. The other thing I was based on my father and I still want him to be routes I was working after school to pay for outfits to be on the dance team and I was on the dance team in high school, and I was a honor student and went on the trip with the dance team and went to ut campus because I wanted to go to ut when I graduated I had a girlfriend that we're going to go. And we all took the trip and saw the campus I'm and I was like. Yeah, you should go definitely. Check it out. And when it came time to fill out the financial aid forms Oh, we only thought our taxes in the last four or five years. So you believe that stuff? while. They're now. They can't prove how we're so quick..

"Contact your parents consent there, and then from then on the relationship between the teen, and the counselor is completely private, and it satisfies all legal requirements in all fifty states. And without any further ADO, here is replay of the episode with Lia mccord, my interview today with with Leeann mcchord. Is a couple of things I. Want I to tell you about it. At the end of the interview after we wrap things up. Lee had kind of this this weird look on her face and I said. Something wrong. She said well. There was something I wanted to talk about but I.

At the end of the of of her interview, you will hear her comeback. We pick up the interview again and it's worth sticking around for because it's very brave what she shares and and I think profound and. I'm just really grateful that that I have guests who? Are Willing To. Risk the judgment of other people to share what they believe. Is the truth and is coming from from their heart and. And what she said made total sense to me as well so also there's a friend of hers that she talks about in the podcast who, since passed away totally unrelated to her story, but because her friend was involved in drugs. Her family would prefer that. The friend's name wasn't mentioned, so you'll hear me. BLEEP her friend's name throughout the podcast before we get to the interview with with Lia as I told you there's a survey you can take. Let's make it to know you guys a little bit better and i. go through there and I look at the responses that people have sometimes in every once in a while. I just feel absolutely compelled to read somebody's responses. On, on one of the on one of the shows, and so I want to read you. I just love the this This woman wants to be A. Her.

I always love hearing that when I see that somebody is going to get therapy, and and and it's working for him She has adhd and she takes. Stimulants for it and she says that that aggravates her her anxiety To the question, do you share your feelings with anyone on a regular basis? She writes.

I'm surprised. I have a few friends than I do. Let's see. What else did she say? What are the most common negative thoughts you have? She writes always worried that people are just humoring me that they pretend to be okay with me, but in reality think I'm absurdly fucking strange. It's not their opinions that that would frighten me, but the fact that I am just so blind to it like an autistic retired I also consistently. Consistently think I'm huge than I'm wasting my education. Then I'm trying to play with the real smart people, but I'm actually pretty stupid and have only gotten as far as I haven't academia on a fluke Oh and my overwhelming body hair I'm constantly loathing. How much hair I have for a girl and feel like it just gets worse and worse. fucking love this woman Describe any behaviors You wish you didn't engage in, but you do anyway. She writes biting my nails and eating my skin I'm not sure what that exactly means eating your your skin. She writes a digging into my legs with pins and tweezers i. hear, this is something Meth addicts do and my adhd. meds are a form of math, so make sense also eating too much procrastinating Oh and sitting on the toilet for hours waiting to poop because I'm not convinced I've pooped all I have for the day and then worried that my stomach is still building too much. Because of all the poop Oh my God, i. I can never get enough honesty. From. People like this another of behavior that that she says she She engages but but wish she didn't so much. She says masturbating a lot even though I live with my boyfriend and obsessively shopping only to return everything the next day. To the question, does anything 'cause? You feel ashamed She writes living in new. York City going to nyu on constantly consistently ashamed that I can't be as thin and toned. Is everyone around me? I feel like they're all looking at me and thinking that flabby bitch can exhibit any self control. How can she possibly be here right now? To the question, does anything 'cause you feel guilty? She writes I'm pretty materialistic. Especially when I'm feeling pretty antisocial shop for clothes, always imagining how beautiful I will look, so I can go out in the world again. People like me I'm actually a poor college student and I engage in this all the time while my boyfriend is struggling to afford food. Does anything 'cause you feel angry. She writes I'm angry that my boyfriend wants to be a woman I don't care if he ever switches his dick for vagina, but I want to be metaphorical for girl in the relationship and I get so mad that he exhibits no sort of chivalry or protectiveness towards me ever. To the question, if there is a god order some of the things you would say to God, she writes I would thank him for blessing me with more than enough food clothing, etc, and access to good people and a great education, then I would apologize for wasting at all. And then to the question, do you have any comments or suggestions to make the podcast better, she says. I want to thank you. Actually for this podcast launched on I tunes just as I was hitting very very dark place in my life. was just awesome to hear about people who were once in that exact place, but we're now totally social and usually pretty happy. Inspirational Shit never includes the gritty gross details that your podcast does, and it does wonders for helping me relate as I've been picking myself up again. It's nice to listen and remember how I felt during the old podcasts and measure my progress, so thanks well porcelain. I don't know you. But I feel like I know you and You fucking rock. Hair and all. Everybody I know is bizarrely beautifully fucked.

"Enjoy this more for shorter bursts, and just really accepting that. Makes Things more enjoyable overall like we pick our plan? Our trips around you know two week two maybe three week stints at a time. I think that's plenty long. For most people most people that's that's very long trip. You know so. We're very happy with that. At this point. I think one of my goals. When we have kids. They'd like to take them on liquor road trip for a you know a little while, but we'll see. We'll see how kids are when they exist. And I think part of that is just likely towards the end of our trip, wanting to take things slower like we were in Cleveland Mexico for for for months housing, and when we do these two weeks stands. It's never like we are going to go to Tokyo. for two weeks. It's like now. We Wanna see like WanNa. SEE MOUTH YOU WANNA. See you again. We want to see these images, and so we cram in it and so extended trips are really hard when you cramming like that because you're, you're packing up every other night and you are always on the move. which I like when I'm seeing a new country somewhere like Colombia where we've been several times now. I can hang out in the HANNAFORD couple of weeks. It'd be good in. Yeah, but yeah. Definitely we end up craving staying in one place whether it's at homer abroad, but we happen to really like where we live at home. So that's coming back to right now. Yeah, you've found your sweet spot where it's like all right two weeks. is if fast travelling new stuff new? New Adventures. You know that's about our threshold, but if we want to go somewhere longer, it has to be a slower type of travel. It has to be how sitting getting an apartment. Whatever or somewhere you've been that, you know so, you're not. You're not feeling like you're pulled in a thousand directions. Every minute has to matter because you've been there before which I think. For a lot of people that I've talked to in myself included that as you travel more, that seems to be how things start to shake out for everyone, but for a lot of people like I'm fine with fast travel, if it's finite, and and then I can go, and it's it's new, and that kind of energy keeps me going on the next train every other day. But. A. Lot of people prefer that. Let me let me bunk in a little bit. Let me enjoy this area. or Go back to a place I've been before because it's comfortable like you could drop me in Chiang Mai and sure it's changed since I was there a couple of years ago, but kind of like you guys with Columbia. Just like this is how I got my barber. I know my favorite places to go. I'm going to go here for launch. This is the best coffee, and so it is. It's a nice little second home and I could be there for a month and it wouldn't feel any different. It would just be like Oh. This is easy so. I wanted to talk. You mentioned Macho, and we always ask people biggest travel mishap, and so you talked a little bit about it of not of it, not being exactly what you thought. Give us the details on that because you did mention that that was probably in the end your biggest mishap of the whole adventure. Yeah I think definitely was I think you know like you said that was the nail in the coffin for backpacking South America. Even though we were able to hang on a little bit, we were just we're scratching. And We. Had Gotten altitude sickness earlier that month. and then we got to cousteau. We really didn't want to mess around with that, and so we were in cousteau for a few days. Getting acclimated like they say that you're supposed to. We spent a little more time and I think that we were in cousteau for six days, and we kinda got like we kinda got leg nested a little bit, and then the day before the height. This was like a big moment. I lost my trekking pants. Yeah Universe the. Laundry at the hostile. All my clothes back except for those pants and I. Think. The universe was saying. Please don't do this. Please don't do this and we went to the having an information session the night before you're supposed to go. and. It was all these like really big like through hikers in is a couple of that showed up late to the info session because they had just gotten off Rainbow Mountain. Everybody was so much better than is ended. This point we had we had been sporadically hiking for. Right like we were fit more or less when we started the trip, but all of these failed hikes under our belts had not helped us continue to stay in hiking shape, and like you gotTa to keep hiking. If you're going to be an hiking shape, so we were like four months out of shape, and everybody else was literally just like. Cross, Bennett goals. They'd come off like backpacker magazine covers like. This is amazing. They were all swapping like peak stories like. Beg Kalinin Jaro Blah Blah Blah I'm just over here like okay. I don't think I've ever actually two single peak we don't. have those in the bay area. By yes, so we told our guys we were like. We're really slow hikers and we got the kind. Santa Response that we always get which is like Oh. Yeah, it's fine. We have slow hikers all the time. And I'm like no. We're like really really slow like we are half of the speed of a normal person hiking I have no idea why, but we are. And there should us that it'll be fine, so we're so okay. I was ready to call it like I had a bad feeling and I was like I. Don't think we should do it if we don't show up. We're out four hundred dollars, and that's the deposit and that's it. We won't be out. The whole thing in Jeremy was like no. We're GONNA do it. We're going to finish it. It's going to be amazing. He this was the speech the Varsity Blues Speech Yeah Okay. So then we show up the next day we're hiking. And immediately fell behind the group. Just it was, it was never like we were never going to be able to keep up with. They were so fit, and they were all just chat and having a great time, and we're link. Huffing and puffing in the background is watching them disappear into the distance, and we like rolled up at lunch and we're like an hour behind everybody. We roll at lunch and we were like an hour behind and. With, the thing was argument was that we went with with a company that had the longest first day they like. A lot of companies are like we'll take a really easy to first day, and then like really get it in the second day. You know.

"There's GonNa. Be a road out as though he's slowly creep down. This hill and Leeann tight, white knuckled like screaming into her face in an just turn around and go. You just got to cut your losses. Just realize it's not gonNA happen. He haven't learned from the thing clearly, but then against this this little. Loot smaller courtyard and I realized that like. There is no road in front of these houses. Everybody just walks here because it's a medieval town and so I have to do this like this whole loop around while I'm on a steep hill, eighty five point turn it eventually I, just had to life, and then I tried to go back up the hill and The inclined was too much degree up the car. We just keep going back because the cobblestone, and so I had to like I'd like fast and furious of this hill and I cried the whole time dry the whole time, but it was I didn't think scratching the car, so that was already broken, already broken headline, but. The car. That time. You didn't get a scratch on the car that Nice. Okay interesting when I read it when you said you job into a castle. IRA Crashed into a castle, you actually drove inside a castle, and then continued to go deeper down the castle yeah. I listen I've been with you. This happened to me in I too many countries to count where I've Gotten A. A. European rental car stuck in some like one way and you're like well I. IF I go this way of course is going to be right out there and all of a senior in someone's front yard, and like end in. You can't turn around. You're backing up. People are looking at you and you're just like what do you expect? This is a road or I thought it was a road, so. Oh. My Gosh, legitimately too many countries to count and I've crashed a car in France in the north of France South France, but yeah, so I've. We we we have our rental car chops for sure for sure so then are you guys have talked about this idea? I want to get to the Macho. Petri mishap, because you know we're going to get that in one second, because I but I wanNA talk about the ending of the trip, because we kind of touched about it with Jeremy and him getting excited to go back to teaching Leah. What was it for you? Because this was like your idea, your dream and you know as you said like you felt I'm not ready to go back to. Was it a bittersweet feeling for you? Was it one that you were like because I've I've struggled with this myself a lot when I come to the end of trip, not knowing how to process it, not knowing what to do, you know feeling kind of deflated that I have to come home. So what was the feeling for you? Because Jeremy was fairly excited to come back and reenter regular life. The end of our trip I mean it ended very similarly to the way that it started with a bunch of disasters. The! Couple of days of our trip I was in the hospital in Costa Rica. For an ear infection and we actually had to extend our trip a few days, so I think I was I. Think I kind of like that. It was inevitable. I was just like you know what I just WanNa sit at home for a while I think that for me. It was if we would continue doing this. And if we keep traveling I wanted to do things differently like I felt like okay. I've I've learned some things we've made mistakes we've. We've had so many disasters I was like surely we could do differently. We travel slower. We could instead of going back home and settling down. We could go to some cool digital nomad spot like Thailand. We haven't been Thailand golden in Thailand and I just for me. It was like. I needed to settle, but I wasn't particularly attached to it. Being back home where we had been and so that was my thought was like okay. We clearly leg this whole going somewhere every few days going somewhere every week. Now, working out for us, mentally or physically, I get that. What if we just run a bungalow or whatever? But that ended up. Being about as appealing as just having a house to live in an apartment to live in in one spot and just taking trips. So. I think that I had kinda come to the realization that something needed to change. It was just a matter of where it was going to where we were going to take a break, but we. We definitely both needed a break for sure. Do you envision in the future like something like that? Where you say all right? We are going to have a home base because that's how I feel now I. Don't WanNa I. Don't WanNa. Be Nomadic I. Probably my guess is will never be nomadic like that again. where I don't have somewhere to come back to or I don't have a home somewhere. But where it is is kind of open. You know I'm like all right I could do I could do that I could do that, you know. Maybe there's a few places. Do you? Guys envision that that's something that might be in the future of art. It might not be oaken. It might be somewhere else, but we. We do have a home base somewhere. I think I really learned about myself that I thrive on routine I love stability a lot so even when I go on a trip I liked to come home and have some are so I definitely think. We will always have a home base. We aren't quite sure if that's going to be Oakland forever or if it's going to be somewhere else because we do you know thinking about family at this point where you know we're now both in our thirties. So. Scientists aren't thinking about kids and we're not sure where we might want to raise them. but I don't think that will ever be nomadic I. I, think we with the idea of like after where retired. Maybe we got like an RV or something or like. Do. Some longer trips. But even when we go traveling during the summer now because every summer, Jeremy's got about a month and a half. And if we go for the full month and a half, it's too much. It's about two weeks. We really like have a good time. At the end of the two weeks we both started to get really tired and just WanNa go home and sit on our own couch and relax and I. Don't think there's anything wrong that I know. It doesn't sound exciting cooler fun, but I think you know realizing that about yourself, and just knowing I enjoy this more for shorter bursts, and just really accepting that. Makes Things more enjoyable overall like we pick our plan? Our trips around you know two week two maybe three week stints at a time. I think that's plenty long. For most people.

Treatments from Gilead and Regeneron Move Forward in Battle Against COVID-19!
"Some glad to be back and have a good show for everybody. We're GONNA talk about a few interesting companies. That had some good readouts this past little while as well as ones that are upcoming. So we're going to start by talking about axiom. Therapeutics and their readout in Alzheimer's Disease Agitation. Or then GonNa move on and talk about Gilead add in all the updates. We saw their Endesa of your trials. Never GonNa talk about another company. That has some. Kobe related. Work going on which is regeneration. And I usually don't talk about mid large-cap biotech but regenerate is is an interesting one. Especially because I've touched on their main compound lia in previous videos so I thought I'd do kind of a deeper look into them and we're GonNa talk about that in big detail so with that. Let's just get ready to it. And the first topic I want to mention is acts on therapeutics so their company that saw a huge runup in twenty nineteen with the development of their drug. Axs Zero Five. Which is a combination of Dextrathoraphan and Wellbutrin and they've already seen positive readouts in major depressive disorder with this compound as well as a couple of other ones and they saw mixed results with treatment resistant depression. But I think they're going to move forward with some trials any way to confirm that data but what they also wanted to to look ad. And this is the data that in presenting here is the effect of access zero five in Alzheimer's Disease Agitation so one of the symptoms associated with Alzheimer's disease is this agitate that comes along with it and it occurs in around seventy percent of all patients so that works out to six million people in the USA. So it's a pretty huge indication in one that I didn't really look at in serious capacity before I took a position because it was originally planned for that treatment resistant depression but I think the stock had a lot of potential. Besides that so. We saw a readout this week. That showed a significant improvement in this. Cma I total score in patients treated with excess zero five compared to both be appropriate riches or placebo and view pro free on its own. Didn't have a substantial effect on Alzheimer's Disease Agitation. It was only when it was mixed with desperate dextrathoraphan in excess zero five that it saw this improvement so this is very beneficial for the song. I think it opened on that day you know upwards of one hundred and change and then it fell back down. I think it closed this week at ninety but very positive for the company and they need to discuss with the FDA how they're going to move forward and whether or not this is GonNa be considered a pivotal trial for them so we might see some insights in their Q. One earnings call which is taking place on. May eighth but is definitely impressive for the company and this molecule is going to be a huge revenue driver for them once they get those filings through and get approval. So that's excellent therapeutics and I'm still holding onto the thirty shares that I bought so let's talk about Gilead and their drugs death severe. That's been investigated right now for the treatment of Cova Nineteen and the importance around rim of your has less to do with Gillian specifically and more to do with how it's going to be implemented in the hospital system and prevent them from being overburdened as states kinda revamp up their economies again because if from desktop here has an effect in it lowers the time in which patients need to be in the hospital. The chances of the hospital system being overburden reduces substantially since we can you know get these patients in and get them out quicker. So that's why remm desperately is so important and we saw originally that Gilead published a study with regards to the compassionate use only remedy severe and that was only a single arm study. That didn't have really great conclusions to be drawn from but since then we've seen results from four studies and I'm GonNa talk about these in some detail because we heard that Dr Bounty announced that there were significant results in that they're going to move forward and approve rendez severe for Cova Nineteen and we also heard on Friday that trump is going to announce the approved use of reinvest fear for this so the four studies that we got results for our this China study that was published in the Lancet and this was an underpowered study so they weren't able to find patients who enroll in this study so they just took the data can the study published in The Lancet. The next one is this. Niaid study that was also a randomized placebo controlled trial and then there were two phase threes. That Julia did call the simple studies. And this is to compare the ten day treatment versus the five day treatment and the reason why they did this I believe is because they don't really have the commercial capacity to produce unlimited rendez severe. So if they can show that the treatment of as severe works just as well with a five day treatment they can save more doses for more patients. Let's first talk about the China study which was published in the Lancet a little while ago and this was a randomized placebo controlled trial in Severe Cova nineteen patients and just to note that this was underpowered. Despite the fact that they did statistics on it there weren't enough patients to really get the power that they were looking for from the outset. And what we see here is that patients treated with Rendez. Aveer were more likely to die if you look at this. Kaplan Meier curve and the hazard ratio was one point two three. Which means that. If you were treated with reservoir you had kind of a twenty. Three percent increased risk of dying the other attract that. I'm showing here is the viral load. So one thing that I was hopeful to see is that Rendez released had an effect on viral loads and the one thing to note though. Is that these samples were taken only from the news. Affairs in the oral faring. So that's kind of your nose area and your throat but not your lungs. So there's a chance that there would have been a significant difference if swabs were taken or if they did some kind of leverage to get samples from the lung and see whether or not rendell spearheaded effect on viral loads. In in that capacity the study also looked at length of hospital. Stay in that was also not significant in this study although the safety was actually okay. So that's one positive outcome from all this but given that this study was underpowered. We need to take these results with a grain of salt. But it's not super encouraging. That REMM has no profound effect in these patients specifically but they also went ahead and did this. Niaid study so we look at bat study. They looked at one thousand sixty three patients and these were hospitalized. Kobe nineteen patients so still in the severe range. And here's what the press release said preliminary results indicate that patients who received rendez severe. Had A thirty one percent faster time to recovery than those who received Placebo and the P value here is less than point zero zero one specifically the median time to recovery was eleven days for patients treated with severe compared with fifteen days for those who received. Placebo results also suggested a survival benefit with a mortality rate of eighty percent for the group receiving Rendez severe versus eleven point six percent for the Placebo Group and the P value here was point zero five nine so this is the study that I think Dr Found. She was referring to saying that there was a significant benefit to rendez severe treatment. And I definitely see a benefit if this is the difference in the time to recovery. The survival didn't have a significant effect. But even if there isn't a significant survival benefit if there is a benefit to the time to recovery. I still think that is profound and we'll be able to help the burdening of the hospital system. Which is what I was referring to earlier in talk so we still haven't seen a lot of details in this. Study some stuff that I'd love to see. Our viral loads led to look at the safety to see more details in in the effects. Endesa there had so. We don't really know exactly what's going on. But this is the study that I think the. Us government is looking at to say whether or not it is a drug with an effect that will be rolled out in the country and it looks like that's going to happen even before we are going to see the details of that study but it is what it is and then the last studies. I wanted to talk about. Are these simple studies from Gilead and this is an open label trial that looked at a five day treatment or attend day treatment and the results are that the study demonstrated that patients receiving a ten day treatment course of Amdex aveer achieved similar improvement in clinical status compared with those taking five treatment course and the odds ratio here is point seven five with a ninety five percent confidence interval of point. Five one to one point one two on day fourteen so this is good news. It shows that they only need to treat rim desperate for five days and it's GonNa be not significantly different than they treated with ten days and we've been seeing a lot about Gilead having around a million doses of rendez severe before the end of the year so given that only five day treatment is needed. They're going to be able to save rim desperate for more patients. And that's a good thing because like I said I don't think Gilead expected at the beginning of the year have to roll out the commercialization of severe. But they're gonNA have to do that. Some capacity and in this way can be able to save some doses for a lot more people and I I put a little note here about the safety so breathe three or higher liver enzyme. Lt Elevations occurred in seven point. Three percent of patients with three percent of patients discontinuing rimmed as severe treatment due to elevated liver tests. So this is kind of a negative thing that is going to affect a decent number of patients because I think a lot of the comber abilities of Cova nineteen patients are issues related to their liver

COVID-19 Escalates but Biotech Bright Spot in Trillium Therapeutics
"So again. I'm glad to be back and appreciate everybody's attention today. And we have an extensive show ahead of us so I'm going to talk about a variety of different things. I WANNA touch on some latest biotech news a menu to talk about the vijen earnings report that. I said I would get to so. There's a few interesting tidbits. There have to talk about the covert nineteen story because that's been really blowing up and I think there are significant implications for the market. And then I'm GONNA finish up by talking about the latest in the anti CD. Forty seven technologies and specifically. I'm going to focus on trillion but also gonNA touch on T. G. Therapeutics so at that. Let's just get right into it. And the first piece of news I had to mention. Is that a sperry on recently. Heard News that they're two compounds. Were approved by the FDA. The one is just the paddock acid pill which they've named it next next little and the dog acid is it. Ahmad Combo pill was also approve. Called next Zet so good news for them. They finally breached the finish. Line are GONNA be able to sell these products. The stock did KINDA BUMP UP AFTER. This news came out but then with all the News Cove Nineteen. The stock did sell off. And I think it's hanging around fifty bucks I still have ten shares. Probably GonNA sell relatively soon just to you know take the prophets and look for more opportunities that have larger chance of bringing a return on my investment but great news for them. The next piece of news I want to talk about is and we heard that they are exploring a potential buyer according to Bloomberg. We haven't heard too much confirmation since then but in the past week we've seen the stock runup quite significantly and it looks like there's a good chance that somebody could pick them up. I'm still holding only about ten shares unfortunately but I'm probably going to sell them just because I feel like we've heard a lot of these rumors once in a while. And often times they don't come to fruition Annan. Pretty happy with the Prophet made so far and given it's only ten shares. I think I might again sell these enda and look for other opportunities. That are coming around the next piece of news. I want to talk about his ammon. And they have been all over the place lately We heard that they released some post trial documents. Because they're undergoing this litigation right now to maintain exclusivity for their patents and you. I kind of glanced at them. I don't really know what to make of them. We're still waiting for a judgement to come down and we'll see that. Relatively soon I think and negativity around the stock. I think is going to be uplifted once that goes through. And we should see a return. All-time highs I've been adding the stock as it's been down and it's pretty heavy in my portfolio now so. I still think that they're goodbye here. The next piece of news on touch on is the latest from the American Society of Retina specialists. And this is because I have touched on wet. Amd in previous videos by interested in this space and they announced that Bayview patients and this is the drug for wet amd that was recently approved by Novartis and this a s R s society issued a warning about fourteen cases of retinal vascular disease with eleven of those being occlusive retinal vascular. Now this can be actually pretty serious condition. That can lead to permanent blindness. So it's It's fair for the society to to issue a warning to people who are considering this therapy especially given that. There are other therapies. That don't have this risk that have been approved in in circulation for awhile now. Nevada stands by view. And they said that. There's been an estimated. Forty six thousand injections done a bill view so far and they did not see that this happened in their phase three trials they did mention there were sixteen cases of ubiquitous and nine cases of Iras. But they still stand by their own compound and they're saying that they're doing post market surveillance to see that's going to be a problem but When this news came out we saw that Novartis Kinda dipped and regeneration stock increase quite a bit just in the expectation that more people are gonNA stick with Lia which is the drug that was approved. That's been approved for a lot longer than bayview and there are more frequent injections. But it's obviously more safe. So all of this could be prevented if re-genesis BIOS drug there gene. Therapy for wet. Amd can hit the market and then patients would only really need one injection hopefully to To prevent Amdi from happening. So that's kind of an interesting thing going on with the amd space so to hit the major stories that I want to talk about today though. We're GONNA talk about biogen. The cove in nineteen esscalation. And then I have here. That Gilead announced that they're going to buy the company named forty-seven for four point. Nine billion dollars and this is worth mentioning because the company talking about which is trillium also has an anti CD forty seven antibody in hopes of using it for hematological malignancies but also potential in solid tumors. So we're GonNa talk about that as the feature story but first thing. I want to talk about his budget so I went through the earnings report and I have touched on by. Jin on a number of different occasions in this podcast. And I think it's a really interesting company being in that kind of mid to large cap space what they announced that their revenue went up seven percent year over year. And amongst all of that the MS franchise was actually down four percent year over year. But what they did is they included cruise. Which is an anti CD. Twenty compound but it's also used to treat ms so they included that in the press release to make the overall year over year revenue increase by two percent. And I think they did this. Because the franchise itself up sixty percent of by toll revenue so to show that that franchise is actually increasing has kind of beneficial from a PR standpoint. They also announced that verity was approved for relapsing. Ms And we did hear that last year. Visionary is similar detector but it has fewer Gi side effects so this was approved it was shown to be non inferior to tech Videira so this is just adding to its. Ms Franchise is going to be continuing to prevail in being a large revenue generator. For by. John. I believe we also saw and I mentioned this last time that the Texas air decision was positive for biogen. So that compound is can also be protected. Biden's going to maintain its exclusivity. So that's good news for that. I don't see the franchise decreasing substantially. It's probably only going to increase with the vulgarity. Approval there are competitors coming on the space but given that by agendas so many MS compounds right now. That are pretty effective. I think it's going to be a continual driver of revenue for the company now in terms of the upcoming revenue generator spin. Rosza is is one of those that's done in the market for. I think almost a year now and revenue increased nine point three percent year over year which is great and this franchise makes up fifteen percent of total biogen revenue so that has increased over the past few quarters. I think as I as I looked at this and they did mention here that we expect the rate at which spinner is a revenues will grow will moderate in twenty twenty compared to twenty nineteen primarily due to a lower rate of new patients starts combined with the impact of loading does dynamics as patients transition from dosing every four months so the way the payment system works for. Spin Rosza is that it costs seven hundred fifty thousand for the first year and then subsequent loading years just cost three hundred seventy five thousand Subsequently so we see this big boost in revenue. When there's a lot of new patients starts and then it Kinda tapers off as patients or just getting that loading dose. So I think that's why they're saying that. Revenues will moderate because the amount of new patient starts is actually decrease and I think this is due to vexes. Launch of excess Novartis is launch of their own therapy for spinal muscular atrophy. So I think as that competition continues the amount of revenue that's generated by spin. Raza is GonNa flat now and patients who likes Raza will probably stay on it but I think that that increased competition. It's still going to harm the new patient start so I don't see this space necessarily increasing too much now. Other things to consider is the repurchase program and this boost the stock price pretty substantially in the last year they repurchased twenty four million shares and that was a cost of five point nine billion dollars and by my calculation that means in the current repurchase program they have about twelve million shares to continue to buy and their net. Cash is still three point. Five billion dollars so they have a lot of cash on hand to buy current shares that are outstanding which is only going to support the price of the Stock. Moving forward another thing. They announced is the commercialization rights to idea as well as loose cintas. So going back to what I said about the wet. Amd space these two compounds are the current kind of establish treatment for wet amd with view just recently being added the size of the market for I league in Los Angeles is eleven billion dollars but these are going to be biosimilars and as we know. Biosimilars don't generate nearly as much money as the actual panel drug the current by similar. That biogen has day only make about one tenth of the revenue of the panel
Wild Hydrangeas of the World
"Dan Hinkley it's great to have you back on the podcast. Welcome thank you very much Matt. It's great to be back. Well you've already been on the episode before and we've talked a lot about your background but for those that didn't listen or new to hearing your name Tell us a little bit about who you are and what it is you do. Well essentially A glorified gardener. I am the director at Herons Garden in Kingston Washington Nets Garden that I started in nineteen eighty seven with my partner Rubber Jones. I currently have a personal garden in India. Nola just twelve miles away from Heron's book called win cliff. Both of those gardens are open to the public. If you should ever find yourself in the areas of the we encourage people to come to walk around and and then I do a little writing. Delo speaking some design consultation so a lot of a lot of fingers in different pots but all in all plants in on all the blast. Ya Fantastically charmed existence for any plant lover but You Know People WanNa know more about your background in You're working plant exploration. They can listen to the previous episode. After that was recorded we talked a little bit about maybe diving into more detail into some of your favorite groups and we both agreed that the hydrangea. We're going to be the topic of discussion and I'm really excited to pick your brain about this. This group of plants today great. I mean it's one that I have had an infatuation with ever since I've been a kid and of course it's another one of those wonders of the plant world at once. You get to know a little you you realize how little you know and so you know it's unfolding but ever so entertaining both four in a plant explorer but also for a gardener at the such great application to gardens of North America and in Europe. Weather not necessarily native to write. And this idea that the more you look the more you realize how little you know about this group I mean. This exemplifies my entire experience Since we talked about doing this episode of growing up my experience with hydro was largely just a couple of pom pom varieties and then a little bit later on meeting. At least one or two are native species in the wild in southern Appalachia but I had no idea the breadth of what this genus in this family overall has presented the world. It's been very successful in north and south and east and West and just like you had a hydrangea. Nekia Lada outside our back door in northern Michigan. That's like zone. Three B thing. Some managed to survive in blonde some every year. And then we also had hydrangea lessons. Annabel and everybody my age at least to live on the east coast new or knows Annabel because it was such a mainstay a mop head. Arborescence wanted a heartiest hydrogen. Just so you know. That's that's where my introduction came as well but as I started traveling I was dumbfounded. By how many niches they have occupied. How successful the genus. The family as Ben as a whole and also at least in the Pacific northwest. How many of those can be brought into cultivation in? Add a great deal to the garden not only by flower but with foliage as well. Yeah and so thinking broadly about this. I was actually new to the idea. That hydrangea had. Its own family. I kind of limited with CAPRA fully. Acc so sort of a broad spectrum treatment for taxonomy sake here. What's going on with this group Obviously is a lot more refined but it was even a decade ago when I first started looking at these. You'd oftentimes find Hydrangea For Gay she was one of those bags of everything that didn't know where they belong. They put it in the sanctuary. Casey so It has now been refined obvious. Leads through a lot of different means available to taxonomic. It is a family to its own. Hydrogen Jasey and they have Would quickly dissect this. There's two sub families in hydrogen JC Eighty and James Yoy D. And then within the sub family HYDRANGEA LADY. They have made two tribes. Which are the hydrogen d. e. In Philadelphia? So it really for the sake of time in one hour fairly gonNA scratch the surface with just hydrology e which is where the the breadth of ornament event is but the the other tribe in the in the hand I drank. Philadelphia's obviously has Philadelphia has dude see as a tremendous number of other plants that we are familiar with in our garden so they're lumped rate in with hydrogen JC. Now that's awesome. Yeah then there's you know it's one of those things where again I looked deeper and realized I recognized a lot of those those. I guess that makes sense that they're related but again for the sake of time. The hydrangea you're going to be our focus specifically the genius hydrangea and roughly speaking. I mean we're we're still working and I'm sure things will change In the years or decades to come but roughly speaking how many species are within the genus. Hydrangea There's you know it changes. Because obviously lumper's lumper's splitters continually added but it ranges around sixty about sixty species. But you know they're still discovering new species and in particular in northern parts of South America just three years ago they identified. I think it was fourteen. Fourteen or fifteen new species of climbing Evergreen hydrangea from the mountains of northern Ecuador and Peru Bolivia Colombia in there. So you know. It's still a lot to be learned about true. Hydrangea as out there. They certainly have not all been discovered yet. Another big realization for me in trying to get familiar with this genus was this diversity of life-form you mentioned climbing and I'm sure. Plenty of gardeners will recognize climbing varieties of her Georgia. In of course the obvious shrubbery ones. I mean this is a really cool thing that that seems. Like hydrangea has found different ways. To make a living as a woody plant depending on where you're you're looking for them yet no Absolutely Obviously most people in North America will be familiar with hydrogen novela which is an Asian species. That's the hardest most dependable deciduous flowering plant for Shade Climbing Planet. I should say ourself clinging plant for shade in climates But new go south on occasion in Asia's while you find climbing evergreen species of hydrogen in I would say ninety nine point nine percent gardeners even in the Pacific northwest where we can grow. So many of these are aware of the fact that there are climbing evergreen branches at provide grateful during the summertime and wintertime and then beautiful flowers. That are dead ringers. For what we in our minds think of is a hydrant right on and in thinking about sort of diversity at least here in North America You know sort of West East divide always stands out especially when it comes to gardening You're located on the West Coast as you mentioned what you have over there or is this something that at least in. North America is largely assigned to east of the Mississippi and Sorta down south from there. So like in a broad sense mad here. I'm I'm sitting nine Sonny Bloch this morning a rare sunny day in the puget sound area and right off the block that I live on the two hundred foot bluff repeat Assam. We have native stands of our native Philadelphia's Philadelphia's Louis named after obviously Lewis and Clark fame and in the broad sense that is indeed in the hydrant JC. So I can't discount the those plants. If you to California now you can find Wesleyan Carpentaria and of course James Lia and a few other genera mostly not all that ornamental so. I can't say that west of the Mississippi is deposited in hydrogen JC but Zero through hike packages zero. So we have to get east of the Mississippi before we run into the only two representatives of the genus in North America. And you. You've already made not worth one of those are Bresson's which is very widespread from New York. Even Southern Quebec all the way down into Florida and the Gulf states and has variations of geographical variations within. But just a darn good dependable plant for gardeners and then Hydrangea Chrissa fully. Which is more? Gulf state oriented a beautiful very distinctive. You know probably one of the most distinctive hydrogens in the entire family is is found in in the Gulf states and You know turn the breeders loose on these which they have with Gusto in the last ten to fifteen years in your ending up with these new pink varieties of our lessons and then all of these extraordinary forms of The Oakley Hydrangea. So far cry from what was available to me as a young lad when we had a Annabel that was about it. Now we have you know pink the pink forms bread by the Maestro of plant breeding. Tom Rainey at North Carolina. State University is really Extraordinary things expanding the breadth of ornament within that that one tax of
Louisa Thomas on Writing About Tennis
"I'm delighted to be joined here by a longtime listener first-time guests overdue guests. Really I think Lewis Thomas. I'm so excited to be here. I am a very long time listener. And Longtime Meyer so bucket lists for me for us. We're very excited. Why would we see? Fairmount is third like I remember. You said to me couple years ago like why almost like why am I not on and I had no answer your only people. I didn't think whatever like stooped our level. Pretty much. But now that you are here. I am delighted that you here and we're GONNA do a pretty male baggy centric type show with you here. We got a bunch listener questions on twitter on e Mail on our patron on. And we'll go through these. I JUST WANNA start against with how you got into tennis. Bitten what your tenants sort of writing. Arc has been leading all the way up to we can skip speed ahead to this version of the most recent story did which I think was on Kim. Clijsters must recent tennis centered leader for the New Yorker Short version of your of how you got here. A short version is that I was a pretty mediocre high school tennis player but absolutely loved it and stop playing pretty much when I got to college and a little bit after and then picked up a racquet again. A few years after college started playing With a friend of mine and I just loved it and it was like the greatest procrastination thing ever. I had actually had a book coming out and I was like filled with anxiety. And so I dealt with this by playing tennis for like it took like four hours. I don't like several times because we would I would go to Brooklyn. You know like an hour span telling you basically I was avoiding work and everything else and out of that. are as us to rate For the Paris Review blog about. Us Open that year. And I had so much fun doing it and it was actually a really kind of a revelation for me. I really felt in some ways that I found kind of voice that I hadn't really been able to. Yes it was it was. It was both new and felt so much like me and there was something about tennis about sports in particular. I'm sorry something about sports in general but tennis in particular that really kind of sports sports so tennis is really kind of my like my origin. Story I'd I'd worked at the sports section actually in high school but that was a both a long time before and I wasn't a writer in the same way so this was really kind of and it felt experimental felt fresh felt new felt it was none of those things really but I felt like I was doing something that no one else is doing and that this was like me. You know that this was something that I I sort of was bringing into the world and It was really exciting and if it was in the sense that Alaska was my voice after that I did a little bit more for them and then this great land the sports website owned by ESPN started by. Bill Simmons started up right before Wimbledon. Actually and they asked me to do. A couple of stories not became kind of became contributor. Really just writing about tennis. I and then I started Raymond other sports and then I started working for them fulltime and became an editor there and then by the end of doing all sports not all sports but many sports tennis was still kind of my Mitra. Love unless you're gonna Cap Cross country skiing by to write that your first term it was was. Us openwork clijsters one. That's as good as well ahead into the future. So since then. Yeah you're right. The New Yorker now seeing Kim Clijsters come back. What did you think I think permits? Everyone who I've talked to WHO watch. It was super impressed by her ball striking. Which is like in even though she lost the match and was almost off it badly. I mean she was down six to four or three or four zero. In the second set fought back have a tie-break so in some ways you could be like that close but she's playing Mugabe's who just made Australian Open final had really nothing to lose in this match and played really well and just had a lot of a lot of things may people go. Whoa Mabel we'll realize why she was a special player for so long. I think I mean I actually even from the start of the match is one of those matches where the scoreline wasn't necessarily reflective of what was going on in the individual games sort of competitive and a lot of games that she was losing she obviously has big weakness. Game. She's not as in shape as she probably wants to beach. Her Serb was kind of a disaster at times by Yeah her boss. Striking was just thrilling. I mean it was so pure it was so I mean I like completely fell in love with her and fell in love with the sport. All over again it actually I mean. Even her announcement had summoned a lot of these. Kinda had made me think about my own kind of start in tennis writing sports writing in general and it became even more intense while I was watching her and I was just. I was just happy in a way that was really uncomplicated. And which was really interesting too because I actually had a lot of complicated feelings about her coming back and it was just so it was like such a pleasure to watch her and just to see someone kind of seize the moment and some sort of Lia really kind of. Yeah uncomplicated right. What are your complicated feelings about her back? Then I generally think that coming back when he said this. Mike feelings aren't really about her coming back. I mean she should do whatever she wants to do in. This is clearly what she wants to be doing. And that's like got on her. You know my complicated feelings are only insofar as like you know. I'm also trying to negotiate my own kind of ambition versus raising a small child. How and the expectations are being placed upon me you know from various sides and trying to figure out what what is it that. I really want to be doing and how do I WANNA be privatizing my life and and in some ways one of the things I find really kind of inspiring about her is that she's actually. Her story is more complicated than a normal kind of like. It's always an Serena Williams story where she knew she was gonna WanNa come back and it was just about making that work in a way that worked for her. I mean she. She left the game she came back. She left the game again. She came back. And I find the idea that you could have. You could sort of take a long view of your career even in a career that is necessarily short like sports that you can sort of view it as a kind of multidimensional thing where you can have different ambitions at different times and have different ways of judging success and have different kind of approaches to be to be really inspiring. Also hard you know. I mean because that's not how we normally talk about successor. How's how's IT philosopher clijsters? I think we'll have one question about her but this my last question her. How's it influenced you being a relatively new mom. In this sort of era women's tennis where motherhood has been a big sugar running storyline. From as Aranka to Serena to clijsters now like what is how. How does that? Because you've written about all three of those women I'm guessing sent in this time. What is that been like? Having your own personal life and of it informs how you see these stories and see the narratives rally stories for better or worse by life always informs. Whatever I'm writing about but I'm also not a person who's injecting my life story into I mean. I did a little bit in the classrooms piece. But I don't usually do that and I have a little bit ready. Mutt Serena but usually I try and step back from that. But certainly there's always like an undercurrent a kind of is to think of it as a secret story. There's something sort of like some You know wellspring of feeling or some motivation that I have to bring into a story. Otherwise it's just a it's not mine. You know that thing. I was talking about my voice like I need to be tapping into whatever that is to take that voice And for some of these stories about mothers obviously it is a little bit closer to what I've been going through but it's also again more complicated because I think we have a tendency to generalize a lot when especially we're talking about something like motherhood would it's such a particularly unique experience. I mean at least to prove my point house at least in my experience has been particularly in unique but of course it's one of these things that is on the one hand like is obviously not universal. But it's something Millions and millions of billions of people go through like trying to figure out how to balance these different things and that's just how to balance them. But how you know embrace them in different ways but at the same time like what Serena wants is different than what clijsters wants. And that's different than what as wrinkle on. And how do you do sort of justice to those stories without kind of flattening them or distorting them or you know assuming one thing for one and a different thing for another and I think can be really challenging. But that's also part of the important thing about being a writer in some ways as sort of realizing the variety of human experience for sure. Very nice to

Also also I guess on the show when Chris was saying like all right. We're going to Cleveland and usually that's where all the girls like. It was just like everyone who's just blank face. WE'RE GOING TO CLEVELAND. And they're all just like oh I love when they do that. So that's an old real world trick when they were like and your trip is Argentina.

It was not Yugoslav anymore shows now respect Croatia Vania. I actually did that on purpose so that I wasn't offending occurrence country. Okay didn't want to get cancelled. Elias shows back up and ask him out of fashion that lived in Yugoslavia. You guys are missing. The most part Alaya showed up. She got home last week so she's not on. The show actually had death squads that that executed people that were fighting against Nazis. So this is kind of a pattern for you in today's episode absorb get Alaya. Who got sent home last week? Shows back up and ask Peter to let her come back in and he did The other girls. That are pissed at Pete Heat and some threatened to leave so is this an empty threat or they actually goal-bound.

I don't get that joke but I I get I bet you it was a good one. Yeah you've probably really noticing roses on twitter. The twitter now. You actually haven't God that's it. Okay great I mean.

Explainer 166: Was Australias shock election result really that shocking?
"The results of the federal election held in a stray Lee. This past weekend was one delighted the country's bookmakers except the one betting firm regarded the thing as such a foregone conclusion that they paid out on victory by the opposition labor party before vote was counted. Believed in miracles. And tonight we've been delivered in the what. Not for the first time in recent memory, the electorate of a western democracy declining to do as pundits and posters. Had confidently predicted a stray Lia returned to office, the conservative liberal national party coalition, led by incumbent prime minister Scott Morrison, despite more than three years of polling showing a consistent lead for the labor party led by Bill shorten. I, I. And we'll wanting to hold out of the also, it's obviously not all of them. It is, perhaps, tempting four to cast Morrison's, unlikely victory as yet, another populace tantrum thrown by these spoilt, people of a wealthy and orderly nation comparable with the Brexit vote of two thousand sixteen the election of Donald Trump the same year and the handing the reins of power in several European countries and regions to sorted varieties of cowboy. But this is not that the result of the two thousand nineteen Australian federal election is instead, something of a political paradox, being both surprising and predictable. It is surprising inasmuch as nobody expected it, at least not this time, but predictable in the sense that it is the nineteenth occasions since the end of World War, Two on which ustralia has elected, the liberal party and its conservative coalition partners, far from being another furious, incoherent tipping over of the tables, this may have been a rare vote for steady as she goes business as usual looked at like that. When contemplating the global context, it might even be vaguely reassuring. Which brings us to the question of what kind of prime minister Scott Morrison will be not before Saturday question that many thought even worth asking Morrison became prime minister in a party room coup only last August, and it was widely suspected that he was destined to be remembered if at all, only by these setters of pub, quizzes seeking to start arguments among competing teams over the identity of strenuous, twenty fifth florist serving prime minister. Instead Morrison finds himself with a full three year term ahead of him and every chance of being the first Austrailia and prime minister to complete one for more than a decade. This is not just due to the against the odds victory Morrison one at the weekend. But the manner of it Morrison whose pre politics background walls in marketing substantially sidelined, the rest of his front bench and may Delek Shen all about him hoping that he's slightly labored, persona of an awkward Ernest suburban dad would connect of let a few things about the prime minister of the last couple of days of whipped up on this visit that we've both chosen well, in terms of MRs body Miranda, and gin you, and I, maybe punching a bit above are white, but nevertheless, that the tactic worked is self evident, but Morrison will not necessarily find the going easy from here, though his win on Saturday was remarkable. It was also close and on a few key issues. Morrison is comfortably in minority among his fellow Australians. He is a Pentecostal Christian and instinctive social conservative. Not a common outlook in a largely secular and increasingly small l liberal country and Morrison is if not an outright climate change skeptic, then a climate change equivocated who now finds himself leading a people who consistently list the environment among the most pressing concerns. This seems to have been one of the reasons though the list of possibilities on this front is not short. Why the voters of were ringer, a hitherto, solid liberal seat on the proverbially, prosperous, north shore of Sydney dumped their long-serving MP, and former liberal, prime minister and big weirdo, Tony Abbott. It doesn't hurt to lose, but sided I'd rather be a loser and quit. Perhaps more interesting question than how the liberal party and Scott Morrison won this election is the one asking how the labor party and Bill shorten lost the supposedly on lose -able. They may have been an answer. In the notably bipartisan national mourning prompted by the death a couple of days before polls opened of Bob Hawke, one of shortens predescessors, as leader of the labour party and prime minister of stray Leah from nineteen eighty three to nineteen ninety one this government, Mr Speaker has the resources that talent and the skill maj, this dramatic vices better, and stronger, and even more prepared to put the interest of the ordinary threat in the country. Was by any measure, a substantial prime minister, but he was also a supreme political communicator, who understood the country needs to see something potential leader of what it is, or what it wishes to become in a stray Lia the liberal party traditionally offers the status quo labor. The vision Bill shorten in the estimate of a majority of the stray Leah's voters offered, neither his successor as leader of the labour party has both need and an opportunity to think big.

A new story from Colleen and Bradley
"You'll remember Britney Spears was rumored to be hospitalized for an ongoing health crisis mental health crisis. But then things got a little weird. And we started having questions mostly because other people started having questions and those questions revolved around to what extent is Brittany and control of her life. It's been over a decade. Not quite over a decade over a decade years. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Over a decade. It's been over a decade since Britney Spears had the ability to make decisions for herself about her business life career, or when she can go to the bathroom, basically that led a bunch of people to speculate. And there was some reason to speculate. Right. It wasn't just gossip and intrigue, but people had legitimate reasons to be concerned and started asking questions when they started asking questions Britney was freed from what? What's? Keep going. I'm gonna tell you because it's interesting go on so Britney left. Was removed from the hospital the mental like ever things fine not to stay here. And then we got word that her mom is now in the mix. So what we have known up to this point is that her father, Jamie spears is in control of the conservative, right? The mom, though, Lynn spears is not in control of anything. Right. But we heard that Britney was living now with her mom after she left the mental health facility and allegedly. We were tipped off yesterday to the possibility that the mom is now filing legal documents to find out what's going on with her daughter, or at the very least to be kept informed of what's going on with their daughter. These things sound weird to us because Britney Spears is thirty seven years old. And what power her mother would have over finding out? What's going on with her daughter? I don't know. Because I don't think your parents are entitled to your medical info, unless you're you know, some sort of designated healthcare decider her dad, obviously is because her dad's head of the conservative ship. So it seems like now if you read the latest story from TMZ that you have Jamie spears is concerned that Lynn spears is getting all up in the mix about Britney Spears. And I'm over here in the corner saying she's thirty seven years old. Why are these parents fighting over this? Well, now, the reason I was reacting just that is because there was a recent article on TMZ where essentially Lynn spears is claiming that Britney Spears is in dire straits that this is not she's not in a good way. And there was no just to backtrack a little bit. There has been on the books a court hearing on may ten. Tenth scheduled that was scheduled over a week ago to kind of take another look at the conservative ship and go over they have to do that regularly. She was not neces- not necessary for her to be present at that hearing. And now this extra step. That's happening right now is that Lynn spears. The mother has filed with the court because she wants to have those the records available. She wants to know what's going on. But and the story was that she she can't wait for that that date on the tenth. And that's why she's wanting to get an immediately. If you believe TMC's latest story this revolves around attempt by Britney. To free herself from her dad and the conservative ship by using her mom, but again, I would say that's probably what the dad would like you to believe. Right. Yes. Because at the end of the day, this is a man that's in control of a heck of a lot of money. Exactly. Right. And so I feel like to to believe that this is just about family dynamics would be absurd. Because there's no family that is like this family when you think about it. I mean, Britney Spears again, she is a thirty seven year old woman woman. I understand that she has mental health issues. A lot of us do and we don't need conservative ships. It's not to say that there aren't average folk who do, but I feel like I wonder how many average folk like you. And I when presented with serious mental health issues would have our parents come in and make financial decisions for us for over a decade. Do you see what I'm saying? I think this is far more about money than it is about anyone actually caring for the wellbeing of Britney. Well, and the thing that I find troubling is that there's almost no way to untangle all of those things right because Britney Spears will always be Britney Spears in the story. Meaning she won't. Always she will always come with a multi billion dollar empire attached to her. And so it's difficult to untangle. What what of these moves is about? Her best interest. And what about any of these moves that are being shared with us is about Britney Spears the empire and having control over that. And certainly the story that we've been kind of told by the the people who've started the free Brittany campaign or hashtag, whatever it is. This story. We've been told by them is that this conservative ship has gone on for such a long time large in part because there are people who are profiting from being in charge of all decisions. And so to have mom come in doesn't really I mean, there's no easy way to untangle this. Because again at the center of it Britney Spears will always be Britney Spears the brand in this day and age, and so yeah, I just I who knows who's acting in her best interests at this point. More Shelby revealed, which means that we don't really know where this is going. I just you know, if you believe TMZ, I I wonder to what extent her dad and his people are talking through TMZ because whenever I see a story at of tansy my first thought is to question who's telling TMZ this. And what is in it for them bright Joe? Remember the first time she was seen. They reported it. I n TMZ. Yeah. The I asked her that whole thing about it before that meaning assumption being the perhaps the people who are in control of Britney Spears are feeding narrative to TMZ because coming from inside the house the thing at the end of the day TMZ is not an investigative journalistic body. They are simply a funnel and filter for people who have a lot to lose. Their names are Kurdish Lia spears. And all the other ones cetera. Yeah. Exactly. 'cause they're like our sources say Jamie is alarmed that Britney is using Lynn to get more freedom during a period where judgment her judgment is extremely bad. She's not allowed to drive with her phone security stopped her after she was caught texting and driving a week ago. Security takes her phone when she takes the wheel, by the way. Britney doesn't have a smartphone. Only a flip phone because of what she might do if she has access to the internet, which that's just creepy creepy. Well, and doesn't it just sort of like smack of I don't know. It's but it's so like the way that it's being laid out right here. You can envision Jamie spears or
Hallelujah! Google Assistant finally has access to your G Suite calendar
"And now we can talk about Jay sweep. Jeez. Weight on my. Okay. Oh, gee sweet. Yes. And we will let's see here. Let's scroll down because I think they ended up in the change on the change. Log is like huge. So any stuff? No. No, no. It's okay. Because there was a bunch of G sweep, and this is the stuff that I could connect to them more in my mind. I could I could attach myself to Jesus we'd a little bit more. But yes, so G, suite Google home, right? Because now, there's more assistant. I haven't tried this yet because I'm constantly sad by my Michael home experience. But. Yes. Theoretically because I worked on a system. Oh, yeah. We should do a whole show up that okay? We can talk about that. In a second. Yes, they're radically. I can now access my GPS week calendar. Data on my Google assistant and presumably, Michael. Oh, so is this when I read this. I immediately thought of you, Jeff because you you have historically been the one to complain about the fact that you have a G suite account. That's your main account, right? You're you're a Google apps account. Let's say, and so a lot of these features never hit you or they you much much later. Was this news the made you happy like does this feel like a a temporary, very strange? It's better than twine this covered a new problem this week. So I finally found out micro book how I can have. I didn't realize that for one click. I could go from one account to another account. Right. I'll Lia so by college account now is on Google hollow yet. Nope. That ministers says this must be the first account inside injury. And then my GPS says it mind must be the first site in choice on making. I got a headache. I didn't answer your question. But I just wanna get. No. I I have Jeff's problem, and I was excited by this news. But I will say that I have yet to try it. 'cause it's been a busy. Yeah. Yeah. But you also are very disappointed with Google home back around to that because I've been incredibly disappointed with Google home. Lately. I feel like what's supposed to support it. Folks. Will you go first because you brought it up until tell what's disappointing. Stacey so mine is both mine is currently employed because my family hates it. There's there's news right there. And I think I've talked about this. The voice match is terrible. And the so I turned that off. But then I have no control over who accesses things in my house. So that makes me sad. And then I also can't access again. Maybe now, I'll be able to access my calendars, but I will only be able to access Mike calendars. And I just. That I mean, an oh. And a lot of the functionality that is native I guess for lack of better word to Amazon is still like a skill on the Google home. So I have to still ask various apps to do things like ask harmony to turn on the television.

There are a lot of similarities like intermittent income, and no real safety net is a problem that affects millions of workers like nannies caregivers and housecleaners the national domestic workers Lance is trying to change this. There's something it calls its innovation arm and DWA labs. It's bringing financial tech to domestic workers. It's new platform called Leah directs digital payments towards benefits for housecleaners. Marketplace's Lila Goldstein talked with one user about the platform, alleviate Mahia is a house cleaner in Brooklyn. Her son David is in the third grade and has a lot of school trips in always always he won. I can go with him. It used to be saying, yes, meant losing income. But last year, she went with her son's class to the prospect park zoo and still got paid thanks to a platform called Leah. It helps gig workers like her earned benefits. Like paid time off she pulls up the website on her phone Huma Boya plataforma. The leeann is the Mittel me contra Sania, she logs in chooses the worker option and sees a total dollar amount. It's money clients have contributed specifically for benefits clients select the client option find their house cleaners account and choose whether to give the platform recommends five dollars per cleaning this money can only be used for benefits offered by Leah then go toward or contracts. Didn't they eat thing goals will they be their Mahy is taken out life insurance and accident insurance. She also took to pay days off. Here's how bad stun when a worker reaches one hundred twenty dollars on a Lia. They can trade it in for a prepaid visa card like a lot of financial tech tools. Elliott automates something that can be complicated for workers to do on their own longtime workers advocate Pollock Shah helped develop the Elliott platform. What technology is really doing is in neighboring all. All of these multiple parties coordinating them taking all this transactions. Putting it all in one place, and allowing for the worker to be able to draw down those benefits, and it gives clients a more formal way to contribute to benefits Mahia is already comfortable communicating virtually she rarely sees her clients. She just text them notamment them excluding this. They huddle Yemi Leoneto soda. She gets a key. And they leave her money on the table at first Mahia was a bit embarrassed to leave fliers inviting her clients to use a Leah.

The Goldstein brought us that story alita currently doesn't offer some really important benefits. No health insurance, no retirement plan. But as the gig economy grows. More workers will be looking for alternative ways to get the benefits. They need. And now for some related links. You may remember that Uber recently settled with drivers in California and Massachusetts for twenty million dollars. The lawsuit raises the question of whether drivers are fully employed as or just contractors the agreement won't end that debate. But it does that an average of about twenty two hundred dollars per driver. In those states NBC reports that the settlement amount is pretty favorable for Uber, which is trying to sign up. Its image ahead of an IPO. Uber has kept the number of lawsuits from drivers down by making it the default that legal disputes, go through arbitration, beware. The wrath of the rideshare driver though. More than twelve thousand have opted to go through arbitration now Hoover foots, the fifteen hundred dollars filing fee, for such cases and Gizmodo calculates that comes to about nineteen million dollars in fees for Uber.

"lia" Discussed on Mentally Ch(ill)
"And I do a segment called schizo film Lia, which is a very creative way. A really creative name. But I'm before I get to get the film. I wanna do schizo book ya which I added on recently recommend books, and obviously wanna talk about yours called are you? Okay. And I'm gonna let you talk about it. But I really want to ask you about finding help in finding the right therapist. Because I know that's a lot of what your book is about an eye for the love of God cannot figure out how to find someone especially how to find someone on a budget. So just to you to tell me all about that. Yeah. So my book, are you? Okay. Guide to carrying for your mental hall is essentially a mental one. Oh one where do you start? What you even ask? What do you need to know often? We don't we don't know what we don't know new name. The questions to ask because we're like what what do I do in? So it's it walks you through what's the difference between mental health mental illness because I think people use them interchangeably in. They're not the same. And talking about what different types of therapists exist. What's good therapist versus a bad therapist? I go through all mental health professionals as well. Not just therapists, but social workers psychiatrists like what does that mean? In different types of therapy in also like the most common communication issues that we have that can harm relationships in how to get out of toxic relationships in the book is just like something that I hope people will use as a tool to figure out what they don't know and get the help that they need in educated empowered way, because I think people are always afraid to reach out. Because what if I go in say, nothing's wrong with me. Or what if I go in there like, oh, my God need to be in the hospital or try to see someone. I don't like them. How do I stop seeing them? Like there's a lot of random. How do I find someone like that's your main question? How do I it's overwhelming union? It's also it's already it takes a lot of effort to even consider that in usually when we're not doing. Well, we don't have the. Energy. And so it's just a very in layman's terms, it's not increasingly therapist e language it talks about how you do all of that. And so I hope that it is really helps people it helps them realize that they can be powered in can make healthy helpful decisions about their mental health. As far as how to find therapist on a budget..
