A highlight from Use Volume To Trade Like A Pro! (Bitlab Lesson)
"What's up everybody? Welcome back to Discover Crypto. My name is Kelly Kellum and in this video we're going to be breaking down a BitLab lesson on how we can forecast or see where price action is likely going to be magnetized, sucked into. Will it break through? Will it reverse back down? All we really want to pay attention to as an investor, as a trader more specifically is where will the price action likely go to? And then we can reconvene on what the data says about will it likely break through or not so we can be prepared where we're in the trade. So diving into the chart here we can see based on yesterday's price action and don't worry if you're watching this at any point in the future this is going to be true all the time when you're looking at what's happening in the chart. Using this data set, using the BitLab volume, part of the BitLab trading stack, this is a volume range here and we can see the point of control which is this teal line, the highest level of volume that's traded at specific price points and we can see to the right here this level this peak is the highest peak meaning the most volume has been traded at this price point. Where do we see the price action went back to in this push up here? Right to that point of control. In addition to that we can see if we move this around give it a second to load we can see that this point of control moves based on the visible range meaning whatever is on this chart that's what the VRVP or visible range of the volume profile we can see this moves and gives us that data point where is the highest level of interest on the chart we're looking at. Now the next thing I want you to notice are these red and green boxes this is part of the BitLab volume again part of the BitLab trading stack. We can see these auto populate and what they are is order blocks. Now what are order blocks? Order blocks refer to specific price areas where large market participants such as institutional traders smart money big money all those big players have previously placed significant buy or sell order. So what we're seeing here we're looking into the actions and the plans and what's been happening in the charts with these big money players and these areas can act as magnets essentially bringing price towards those high areas of interest and we can see very clearly here price action came right up into this red order block that printed all the way back here August 8th and rejected right out of it. Now we know based on the news that there's a lot of things at play but there's a lot of traders out there that trade specifically only on the technicals and there's other people that are doing longer term position buys and buying contextually what the narrative is in the market and so both those things are at play here but when we're looking just at the technicals we had a magnet essentially up here high area of interest large players clusters of orders buy and sell orders in the zone price action rockets up this is exactly where it found resistance and came back down to a little bit of an equilibrium as it stands right now. Now what do we do with this well we can see there's an area of interest two of them in fact on this chart directly below us now what I want to recommend to each and every one of you is utilize multiple time frames when you're trading when you're trying to find those entries in those exits utilizing your technical and fundamental analysis in concert so you can identify the areas for your entries and your exit and in this case we can look above us and see these two areas of interest potential resistance zones consolidation zones or even rejection zones so we can plan accordingly manage our risk and make sure that we don't get stuck on the wrong side of the trade or break up our entries and exits. So let's go ahead and look at a smaller time frame and see if there's more order blocks areas of interest on those smaller time frames that can give us a little more clarity about where we can find some potential support and resistance as it relates to interest in price levels on this asset and this works on bitcoin your altcoins stocks all these different assets that you could trade any asset really that you're charting here on trading view so it's come down here to the four hour chart and we'll see if what order blocks print when we're looking at this chart. Now in this case we see the order block was quite a bit higher and that printed all the way over here on July 14th we didn't quite make it all the way up there but we know because we're utilizing multiple time frames that we already had that area outlined as a potential area for a rejection. So when we come down to the smaller time frame we can see what's going on and we see a new order block is printed directly above us. So this suggests that if price action does get sucked back up into this zone we need to be a little careful about what's happening here because there's been clusters of large buy and sell orders in this case we can tell it's predominantly sell orders because the price action came down so when this comes back up into the zone we need to make sure that we're not just going all in trying to catch it before it just breaks out and runs away without us that's called FOMO. Let's use the technicals let's use the data in this chart to identify how we can best play our positions. Now in this case if this does push up into the zone we know we have work to do above this area as well up here in the 30 ,600 to 31 ,300 level and this is without knowing anything about what's going on with price action just utilizing the BitLab volume it's giving us those areas of interest. Now if this does reject we have areas directly below us down here at 26 ,600 and also right here 26 ,000 even. Now if we want to get more specific zoom in you're a scalper you want to do all those trades throughout the day it's okay but you need to make sure you're managing your risk and being aware of these larger time frames so let's get down to the 24 minute chart and see if there's any areas of interest with order blocks on here that can give us a little bit more insight. Now here we can see on the 24 minute chart as a price action pushed up and came back down there's a large cluster of orders right in this region price action pushed back into the zone got rejected and formed a secondary order block in this in this territory. Now price action breaks down form a new order block below so it looks like we're going to have a little bit of a consolidatory range meaning the price action is getting tighter and tighter and it's going to have to determine whether or not people are going to sell off and come back down to this range or push up and retest this again. Now again just because we start pushing up don't go all in just because price action is moving in the direction of your bias. Head yourself be prepared with risk management stop losses but utilize the tools available to you here in the bit lab trading stack or if you're using other indicators it doesn't matter what data set you're using just make sure you're finding confluence in this case we're using the bit lab volume but I wouldn't trade only using this indicator I will utilize this in conjunction with what's happening down here on the bit lab trend fuel or for using stochastics and momentum and RSI or market cipher or lux algo use the concert of different data tools available to you so you can identify those areas and then identify the other data sets that can either confirm or deny your thesis. That's all I've got for you in this video hope you all have a wonderful day hit the like button hit the subscribe button ding the bell and if you're interested in getting your hands on this indicator and diving in getting these areas outlined for you head over to bitlabacademy .com and go to the indicators area right here bit lab trading stack and add it you can still use give me 30 for 30 % off your first month I love you all I appreciate you I hope you all have a wonderful day adios.
A highlight from SEC WON'T APPEAL GRAYSCALE BITCOIN ETF RULING & CALIFORNIA PASSES CRYPTO REGULATION!
"Welcome back to the thinking crypto podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here, please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google, please leave a five star rating and review. It supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well, folks, I want to start off by talking about the grayscale SEC Bitcoin ETF situation. Yesterday, Friday, October 13 was the deadline for the SEC to appeal the court's ruling in the grayscale case. Now, we know the three judges destroyed scumbag regulator Gary Gensler and the SEC calling their denial of the grayscale Bitcoin spot ETF as arbitrary and capricious. But what can you expect? We're dealing with a scumbag corrupt regulator that is Gary Gensler, who is on puppet strings being controlled by Elizabeth Warren and the Wall Street incumbents who want to destroy crypto startups like grayscale, Coinbase, Ripple and others so that they can come in and take over the market. So the fact that the SEC did not appeal and we're past the deadline, obviously, is a good sign. It's bullish. It means the SEC does not see a way to win this. They are pretty much kowtowing here, right, which they have to the courts are ruling here. And even the folks at Bloomberg, James Safert, who I've had on the podcast, said, look, it's being reported here and confirmed by Bloomberg News that the SEC won't ask the court to reverse its decision on the Bitcoin spot ETF as it relates to grayscale. So what's going to happen next? It's going to be the SEC and grayscale are going to have their conversation started where they're going to discuss, I guess, how they're going to approve this and what else grayscale needs to do. Obviously, we're all waiting for this Bitcoin spot ETF approval to happen. I think the SEC is going to approve multiple at the same time. If they were to approve the BlackRock ETF ahead of everybody else, you know the game is completely rigged. We have some sense it is rigged, but if they do that, it will be really blatant. So I think they're going to approve multiple at the same time. However, this is my opinion. Look, we got world conflict happening. We still got inflation. We still got the Fed raising rates. Liquidity is low. We're still in the quantitative tightening cycle. I don't think now is a good time for this ETF to be approved, honestly. I think next year when things calm down, maybe near the Bitcoin halving would be a good time. The conflict ramps down, dies down. People are not as focused on it. Just normal human life and things go back to normal to a certain degree. Maybe the Fed is ramping down rate hikes or they have paused completely. They start QE. Liquidity is blowing back in. I think that will be the ideal scenario, but we'll see what happens. Maybe I'm wrong and they approve it sometime this quarter and maybe it does well, but we'll see what happens. The one thing I want you all to expect though, there's not going to be capital flowing in overnight into these ETFs. I think they have to be fully, the groundwork has to be set up. The marketing has to be there. Once again, people essentially wouldn't want to be focused on investing. Right now, people are not really focused on investing. I'm talking about the general public. Just keep that in mind. Now, speaking of the SEC, we have an update here as it relates to Coinbase versus the SEC. Paul Grewal, chief legal officer at Coinbase given updates on their response to the third circuit and it says here the TLDR, the SEC's unilluminating update is mere bureaucratic pantomime and confirms that nothing short of mandamus will prompt the agency to take its obligations seriously. We respectfully request an order to the SEC to act on Coinbase's rulemaking petition within 30 days. We appreciate the court's careful consideration of this matter. So remember the SEC filed their response and it was a bullshit letter. It pretty much was nothing in it. It was just a delay tactic. So I appreciate Coinbase putting the pressure. That's what we got to do. And we saw the judge already in these cases with Coinbase versus SEC is calling out the SEC saying like, what are you guys doing? What's a security? What's not a security? You approved Coinbase to go public. You knew what their business was. So what are you doing now? It's not like they're charging fraud on Coinbase. They're just saying you're selling unregistered securities, yet they won't say what is a security and what's not. Even the scumbag regulator, Gary Gensler, before Congress, can't even answer what's a security and what's not. It's ridiculous. We're dealing with a government agency that is funded by our tax dollars that doesn't abide by the law, that are hypocrites and liars. Even Judge Sarah Netburn in the Ripple lawsuit said the SEC lacks a fateful allegiance to the law. It's pathetic. But we got to keep putting the pressure on this corrupt scumbag bureaucrat and he will be exposed. He lost in the Ripple case. He lost in the Grayscale case. And I believe they're going to lose here with Coinbase. So I appreciate Coinbase, you know, putting the pressure and we got to keep doing the same thing. Contact our representatives, share the facts on social media and expose these lies. Now some good news, folks. And this involves Governor Gavin Newsom out of California. Now, whether you love Gavin Newsom or you hate Gavin Newsom, that is one thing. Let's put it to the side. That's a whole other conversation. But folks, California, they passed a crypto licensing bill, which is really good, folks. Gavin Newsom signed this yesterday. So here's the headline. Governor Newsom signs crypto licensing bill in California. Governor Gavin Newsom on Friday signed into law a measure that would regulate California's crypto industry, home to nearly a quarter of the blockchain companies in North America. This is being reported by Bloomberg Law. But I'm going to jump to another article here, which gives the full details because Bloomberg wants me to pay to read, which is annoying. So according to the report by Bloomberg Law, this first law aims to establish basic regulations for crypto companies operating in California, making them obtain state licenses and meet specific requirements related to reserves, disclosures and audits. The law also covers assets backed crypto currencies like USDC and USDT, so stable coins, making it mandatory for them to keep complete reserves, which would impact algorithmic stable coins that rely on different mechanisms to maintain their pegs. This crypto regulation bill was passed in August 2023, a year after Governor Gavin Newsom vetoed a prior version of the crypto bill stating that California needed a more flexible approach. So, folks, this is great, great news. It is logical, reasonable things. There's no overreach here. If you are a centralized exchange or a stable coin issuer, you have to have your reserves. You have to provide audits. You have to make sure you're abiding by the laws. We don't want any more FTX or Celsius things, no commingling, no lying, no pulling customer funds to go trade it, right? Like these idiots, Caroline Ellison and Sam Bankman Fried and even a scammer, Alex Mashinsky. No more of that nonsense. The industry needs to raise its standards. All exchanges decentralized need to be audited, whether it be monthly reporting or quarterly reporting it, sending it to the licensed agencies in the States and it's being reviewed, right? I think we can all agree with that. You can be a very pro -crypto person, very much into decentralized exchanges and defies, but we can't ignore that there's going to be centralized entities in the market. They need to abide by the law. They have to follow these best practices. We can't have what happened last year happen again. That was ridiculous, right? So this is a great move, great bill. And it's sad that the States have to do this and the federal government is not doing it, right? But the good thing here is that the States moving ahead will force the hand of the federal government because it's not just California. It's Wyoming, it's Texas, it's New York and many more are passing comprehensive regulations. So this is a really great move, really happy to hear about this. And obviously there's a lot of crypto companies in California, some like Ripple and others. So really, really big crypto regulation bill here, folks. And here's what Tim Grayson, who is an assembly member in California, tweeted out. He said, today, California is taking the necessary step to regulate a market that is volatile risky and in some cases deliberately rigged against everyday consumers. Thank you to Governor Newsom for helping ensure that our state leads in fostering responsible innovation. Folks, this is huge, huge, huge, huge. I can't, once again, I'm not endorsing Gavin Newsom here, so please, please don't get me wrong because California has a whole lot of problems and other things happening. But as it relates to crypto, this is a really great move. And I think game theory is going to play out. Other states are going to follow suit and follow the direction of California, which is one of the largest states, folks. So a move in the right direction. Now I want to highlight a great, responsible and safe exchange that is Uphold, which is a sponsor of this podcast. I've been a user of Uphold since 2018, so I can vouch for this platform. I've interviewed the CEO, the CFO and many folks over the years. They have 10 plus million users, 250 plus cryptocurrencies, and they're available in 150 countries. You can also trade 37 fiat currencies and precious metals on this platform and easily switch between crypto, fiat and precious metals. It's pretty cool. It's a unique platform. And once again, I can vouch for it because I use it. I use it for trading and much more. So if you'd like to learn more about Uphold, please visit the link in the description. Now, folks, as we're talking about crypto regulations, we know Elizabeth Warren has her anti -crypto army. She's corrupt. She's, you know, three peas in a pod with Gary Gensler and Brad Sherman. We know she's been doing all kinds of nonsense. Well, there's news coming out here. Ryan Selkis said rumor is John Donenberg, Liz Warren's COS, is heading to the White House to replace Bharat Ramamurti. Bharat responsible was for making the admins deep crypto hostility. So talking about the Biden admin, some in D .C. told me to wait and see Biden soften with Bharat gone. If Donenberg is in, that won't happen. So we'll see. Here's what Caitlin Long, who's battling the Fed right now, said. She said, yes, as Novogratz, Mike Novogratz said, Senator Warren is driving the Biden administration's bus on crypto policy. Biden cut that deal with her long ago. And that's why she gets to a place or gets to place her people at the White House in key agency positions. This was an open secret in D .C. And it's now no longer a secret. P .S., where is the press on Biden's Warren deal to let her pick White House economic staff and financial services appointees? This has been an open secret pretty much since Operation Choke Point 2 .0 began in January. And I haven't seen it reported yet. Any ideas? Ryan Selkis and Nick Carter, she said, and Novogratz, I think you said in an interview on stage at Mainnet that Warren's senior staff didn't agree with her. Let's hope John is among those you are alluding to now that he's at the White House. Folks, we shall see what happens. My hope is that Biden overall losing popularity and with different things economically and, you know, Elizabeth Warren going crazy over crypto and the industry fighting back and Gary Gensler taking losses in court, you know, take some wind out of her sales. It's Senator Elizabeth's sales here and take some power away from her. And maybe the people Biden has around him, you know, who are anti -crypto get kicked out. You know, we can see next year is a election year. So we'll see what happens. Maybe things soften up. The Bitcoin spot ETF gets approved. You know, I think we're moving maybe out of the eye of the storm with this operation choke point. We'll see. You know, I think the court law losses for Gary Gensler really help the causes here. Even with Caitlin Long, the court denied the Fed's request to throw out her lawsuit against them. So the lawsuit is proceeding. It's going to discovery. So these anti -crypto people are getting exposed. And, you know, we hope Elizabeth Warren, her corrupt ass gets exposed as well. Now, the IRS is also putting out some crypto tax rules, which the industry are trying to push back on. So here's the headline. Coinbase tax had calls on IRS to revise crypto tax rules. The IRS is proposed tax rules hinder digital asset growth by exposing restrictions that question their utility. Coinbase is VP of tax wrote Thursday. So great to see the industry is pushing back in a letter disclosed on Thursday. Lawrence Zlakten, if I'm saying that right, a Coinbase's vice president of tax criticized the proposed regulations for imposing an unprecedented, unchecked and unlimited tracking on the daily lives of Americans. In August, the IRS issued a 300 page proposal that revises the definition of a broker in accordance with the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, including crypto exchanges, which provides guidelines on tax compliance for both the brokers and their clients. Now, many of you may recall the infrastructure bill situation with this, and we're still fighting this. So I'm glad the industry is pushing back. And, you know, these things are not set in stone fully yet. So we have an opportunity to push back and we're seeing more pro crypto governors and congressmen and lawmakers and so forth, even presidential candidates. So we got to keep pushing. We got to keep fighting. And, you know, where we need to rally and call up our representatives and send letters and emails and tweet and whatever we got to do, we will do that. But good to see that folks at Coinbase are pushing back. Now, we've got news here that Taurus expands crypto footprint after Deutsche Bank linked up. So the crypto infrastructure firm Taurus that partnered with Deutsche Bank last month is set to announce more large partnerships with banks soon, exec says. Now, I remember recently Deutsche Bank said they were going to launch crypto custody and they were they're doing this with Taurus. So Switzerland based Taurus, which offers infrastructure to issue custody and trade crypto tokenized assets and NFTs is opening offices in London and Paris. The firm says it expects more of the region's banks listen to this folks to wade into the crypto space as the regulatory environment becomes more clear. Folks, that's music to my ears. And they're talking about the EU here, right? Because both the EU and the UK have passed crypto regulations. Now, if only we could have that in the United States. Right. Where where are the members of Congress? Where's the federal government on this? So the expansion is part of a bid to better serve institutions that will soon have to comply with the Markets and Crypto Assets Regulation, the MICA law, the European Union Parliament passed the framework in April with implementation expected next year. So great, great news, folks. Very bullish. And let me give you some more details. So Jurgen Hoffbauer from saying that right previously towards his global head of strategic partnerships will lead the London office. He spent more than 10 years at Bank of America, where he served as head of sales for Europe and Middle East and Africa. Folks, a lot of the legacy banking TradFi folks are coming to crypto and they're helping to build out the crypto infrastructure for institutions. And of course, you know, they know there's money to be made here. They know this is the future and they're doing it. And this is why we have to be patient. This is why we dollar cost average. We study the market cycles. We look at what these big players are doing, not what they're saying, but what they're doing. And we are positioning ourselves to take profits as the value of our tokens rise. Right, folks? So we have to exercise patience. Taurus raised 65 million dollars in a February funding round led by Credit Suisse. Deutsche Bank also took part in that round and German megabank linked up with Taurus last month to build out their digital asset custody and tokenization services. Wow, folks, I hope you see what's happening here. And this thing is global. It's not specific to United States. So while Elizabeth Warren acts the fool with the clown Gary Gensler here and delaying and causing all kinds of nonsense, the rest of the world is moving forward. And the great thing about this market, it's borderless. You can be in any part of the world. I've said many times you have a smartphone, you have Internet access and you can be part of the asset class. You can buy a fraction of Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, whatever it is. You can put as little as 10 bucks in each. Right. And you are part of the asset class. And that's something they cannot stop. They would love to. They would love to gate keep it like they have historically and put the borders and say, oh, you have to go through Wall Street and you have to be an accredited investor. Right. They would love to stop that so they can control it. That's why they're fighting so hard. That's why this corrupt Elizabeth Warren. This is a big thing for her. That's why Gary Gensler is doing all the things he's doing. They want to control it, but they can't. The disruption is at their doorstep. They can't stop this thing. They're going to put up roadblocks. Don't get me wrong. Like they're doing, they're slowing us down to causing a bit of confusion. But this train has left the station. They ain't going to stop it. Now, got some news here that Texas County settles lawsuit over wrongful seizure of fifteen thousand dollars from Bitcoin ATM. The lawsuit also aimed to have the court recognize Bitcoin Depot as the lawful owner of the seized money. So I've interviewed the CEO of Bitcoin Depot and this is an interesting case here. So authorities in McClellan County have settled a lawsuit with Lux Vending operating as Bitcoin Depot following the wrongful seizure of fifteen thousand dollars from one of its Bitcoin ATMs. The lawsuit was dismissed after the county acknowledged the funds were improperly confiscating following a scam that targeted an 82 year old Crawford woman. Local media reported Thursday the scam was reported by the elderly victim who was deceived into withdrawing fifteen thousand dollars in cash and depositing it into a Bitcoin machine. This reportedly followed her falling victim to a ransomware attack initiated by a malicious email link. Legal action had originally been filed against the county investigators for allegedly violating due process. They had obtained a warrant to seize the funds from Bitcoin Depot kiosk located at a court recognized Bitcoin Depot as a as the lawful owner of the of the seized money. McClellan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara, who had previously stood by his the actions of his officers, declined to comment on the lawsuit's resolution or on Judge Scott Felton's admission that the funds had been seized erroneously. KWTX News reported. So interesting case happening here. And, you know, one of the layers here I want to highlight is that crypto is becoming a big part of society in the mainstream and the average everyday things that may occur, whether it be crime, whether it be just different things in life. Right. That happens that we don't control or had nothing necessarily to do with crypto that it's popping up in cases and all forms of regulations and law now need to be developed around it. So that's a great sign of adoption. I'm not saying what happened to this lady is a great right. Obviously, that's another issue with malware and scammers and elder abuse and all these things. But in the sense of adoption and this being part of the society, just as the Internet became part of a society and there were bad things that followed that, but obviously a lot of great things. Right. Same thing is happening here. So it's pretty, pretty interesting. I like to look at these things from a psychological macro societal human behavior standpoint, because it also tells a story of the direction we're headed. And are people moving away from this or are they adopting it? Is it becoming more prominent in our daily lives? And I think we're seeing that for crypto and block chain. Now, I just want to end it here by highlighting one of the partners of the podcast that I and it's a platform I use, Merlin, which allows you to track your crypto exit strategy in a very easy and safe way. Merlin allows you to tie in all your exchanges and ledger data. It does not capture your seed phrases or anything like that. It simply just takes a snapshot of your account and allows you to set your exit strategy. Which price points? I've been doing stuff like this on spreadsheets. It's super tedious and manual. And I've always been looking for some sort of solution. And Merlin is that solution, folks. So I'll be using this for the next bull market. So let's say for my XRP or Ethereum or Bitcoin, I'll set certain price points. Hey, I want to take 30 percent of my chain link or XRP at this price and I can set it in the Apple. Let me know right away, folks, on which exchange it hit that price and I can go right away and execute accordingly. So this is something that will make your life easy and you don't have to be constantly refreshing on coin market cap or, you know, going back and forth between a spreadsheet. So this is one of the reasons I'm highlighting it as a partner, because I'm using this platform and it's great. It's easy, it's safe and that you can plug in, uphold, you can plug in ledger, Coinbase, whatever it is. It is a great platform, folks. So be sure to check out Merlin. Link will be in the description. Go check it out. You can get a 30 day free trial, see if you like it and go from there. Thank you all for listening. Thank you for your support. Hit the thumbs up button, hit the five star rating on the podcast platform and I'll talk to you all later.
A highlight from SBF TRIAL: 09/26 UPDATE
"Welcome to The SBF Trial, a Coindesk Podcast Network newsletter bringing you daily insights from inside the courtroom where Sam Bankman -Fried will try to stay out of prison. Follow the Coindesk Podcast Network to get the audio each morning with content from the Coindesk regulation team and voiced by Wondercraft AI. Former FTX CEO Sam Bankman -Fried has traded his palatial Bahamas bunker for a bunk bed as he transitions from lux to lockup. Bankman -Fried is staying at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, one of the nation's most notorious correctional facilities. Conditions at the jailhouse where Bankman -Fried has resided for six weeks since losing his bail are a far cry from the former billionaire's old Caribbean stomping grounds. The internet is slow, the living quarters dirty and the cafeteria offering slim, his lawyers have argued. He is subsisting on bread and water, sometimes peanut butter, the defense told a federal judge last month. Former residents of the famous facility and their lawyers, however, have said there's much more to tell about the notorious lockup. They've likened conditions at the jailhouse to those faced by prisoners of war and Hannibal Lecter in the horror movie The Silence of the Lambs. But what's MDC really like on the inside? Here's what we know about the infamous detention center. MDC Brooklyn is a large prison complex encompassing two buildings and housing more than 1 ,600 male and female prisoners, many of whom still await trial. As a mixed security facility, the MDC houses inmates with a variety of criminal histories, including terrorism, organized crime and drug smuggling. A report from the Bureau of Prisons shows current inmates include Juan Orlando Hernandez, a former president of Honduras, who has pleaded not guilty to drug trafficking charges, and Guo Wengui, a Chinese businessman who has pleaded not guilty to fraud charges. Others who have previously served short stints at the jailhouse include Epstein accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell and pharma bro Martin Shkreli. Bankman -Fried likely has a rigid schedule at MDC. Inmates wake up at 6 a .m. and must make their beds, mop the floor and tend to their trash. An orientation handbook from the facility shows. From there, inmates like Bankman -Fried might go to work around the facility, serving as prep cooks in the jail's kitchen, providing janitorial services throughout the complex, or assisting at the facility's maintenance shop. At 11 a .m., they eat lunch. Dinner is served at 4 p .m. Meals are supposed to consist of a meat such as turkey, a starch like rice and a vegetable or fruit, but prisoners are actually served cold cuts, sandwich bread, moldy pound cakes and other unidentifiable foods from the kitchen, according to a petition on Change .org. If Bankman -Fried, a vegan, doesn't like what's offered at the cafeteria, he can use his $150 weekly commissary allowance to buy peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, worth $3 .65 each. He can buy up to two of those per day, according to the complex's rules. In between meals and work, inmates are allowed breaks. However, there's no prison yard for recreational activities at MDC. Instead, Bankman -Fried will have to hang out with his fellow inmates in indoor community rooms, where they can play cards, talk and watch television. Bankman -Fried can also take showers during his downtime in one of five separate individual shower stalls, according to former inmates. However, lines to use the showers are often long. At the end of each day, Bankman -Fried may retire to a communal dorm with rows of bunk beds, according to former prisoners' accounts. However, it's also possible he has been put in protective custody and has his own cell. Either way, getting some shut eye may not be easy. Fluorescent lights keep the dorm and other rooms across the jailhouse semi -lit 24 hours a day. Inmates' writings show. In addition, inmates can often be heard shouting across cell blocks at all hours of the night, former prisoners have said. Uncomfortable heat and cold is another potential issue Bankman -Fried may encounter during his stay at MDC Bankman -Fried in Brooklyn. According to several local news reports, many parts of the MDC lack heating and air conditioning units are sparse throughout much of the facility. Want to follow along?

A highlight from Bitcoin Crashing LIVE! (Vitalik Hacked)
"Welcome to Discover Crypto, everybody. Today is September 11th. Yes, September 11th. It is 11 .34am. You may notice a new change. A little different colors over here. Maybe a little bit of a different logo right there. But we still have the same squad. We still have the same people. We still got AJ. We still got Drew on the ones and twos in the corner. Me and Drew are one step closer to eating MREs. It's going to be fantastic. Guys, we're going to talk about SEC. We're going to talk about XRP. We got an ETH hack. Vitalik got hacked. Did ETH get hacked? Is all your ETH gone? So we're going to talk about the Vitalik hack. Also, FTX. What do they hold, everybody? But guys, we're going to have another video coming out pretty soon. Probably what? After the live stream. Do we know when that's going out, Drew? I'll have to check. We'll have to check. We'll have an answer by the end of the show. We have a video explaining a lot of things, explaining everything. We just hope that you watch it. We'll share it. When as soon as I get the tweet, I'll share it to everybody. But let's just get right into the show. Does that sound good to you, AJ? That sounds great to me. AJ, you look fresh today. You got the gel. You got the cool shoes on. You look tan. You look glowing. How was your weekend? I went to the first round of SMX in Charlotte, North Carolina, working for my weekend job, which is for Racer X Magazine. It's a very well -known motocross industry kind of thing. And I had an absolute blast. Caught up with a bunch of my friends. Spent way too much time in the sun, but hey, probably needed it. And the race was great. I'm excited. I might be going to the last round in two weeks in LA. Oh, did you see Johnny Crypto out there? Nope. He's the other motocross. Guys, we see Bitcoin is dumping. Okay, we're going to look at the charts pretty quickly. We might even bump it up a little bit just to get into it. Let's just pull it up. Let's just get right into the show, everybody. Yeah, you can see a fresh little dump. Let me hit refresh because, guys, it is not looking great on the short term. And even when you zoom out, you're going to see that we kind of broke some key levels. This is the 24 -hour chart for Bitcoin. Currently, we're coming in at $25 ,118. But if you look at the 7 -day, you'll see exactly what I'm talking about. We've been trading in this range. We spiked above it, but you just see that flat, flat range. And we go to the 14 -day. In the 30 -day, it looks even more sharp. Just hanging out, hanging out flat, and then we drop below. Let's go to the 30 -day. You see, we haven't fallen below this level in a while. And if we keep going, you'll see even more of the same. Back about around 3 months ago, we dipped down into the $24K level. So as long as we stay above this area, I'm not going to feel super, super scared. Now, you see the dump, AJ. Are you feeling a little worried, a little fear here? Well, I know Kelly is doing TA, but Drew, if you go to my chart really fast, one thing I just want to point out is that this line right here, this yellow line, what I talked about last week, the $25 ,300 area, that is a super important support resistance line from way back here, right? And if we lose this line, I am pretty worried moving forward. Very, very worried moving forward. I'm probably looking to fall to $23 ,000s, maybe worse. But I've been saying it for a while that this line is my make or break right now. So let's hope for the best. And that's Marcus. Wait a minute. What do you got going? Is that trading view or a puddle filled with oil? I didn't clean it up, but this is Lux Algo. With Market Cipher, I run a lot of stuff. It looks like craziness to you guys, but it makes sense to me, but I'll clean it up for next time. It looks like the console from a 1980s sci -fi movie where they showed NASA desk. That's what it looks like. Let's look at the rest of the market here. We have Ethereum down as well. If we pull up this level, you can see we're now at $15 .59, dropping down everybody. We do the same thing we do with Bitcoin. You see we're hitting some levels we haven't seen in a while. And if you go down, we're actually lower than we were three months ago. Bitcoin fell below where we were three months ago. Ethereum is, I mean, held above. Ethereum is falling below, so losing some key areas right there. The 180 day doesn't look better. But when you go to the one year, it doesn't look quite as bad. And it does the same thing for Bitcoin. You click on the one year, it feels bearish. We've been trading sideways. Everything just feels bad. But you click on that one year, kind of puts things in perspective like, okay, maybe it's not all over. Maybe we are on an uptrend on the long term here. All right, let's look at some more coins here. We have BNB down 3%, XRP down 5 whopping percent, everybody. It is down basically the whole week here, down 6 .2%. Keeps growing by. We see Cardano finally broke out of that 25 cent range, been stuck at 25 cents. Now it is below. Am I going to look to buy some cheap Cardano? Maybe not. I might hold off and look for some different alts there. We have Solana down 2 .3 and then TonCoin down 5%. We're going to go to the top losers and have an idea. This is not going to look great. The top gainers, probably going to be stable coins. I don't know. I haven't clicked it myself. Let's see what we got. We have one coin. No, wait, whoa, gold. Gold is up and optimism is up. I don't even know if we should count PAX Gold. So we have one crypto essentially that is up. That is optimism. And then we have a couple gold pegged stable coins that are down. If we go to the top losers, we have RollBit down in the double digits, everybody. I hope you pulled some profits because we are down 27 % on the week. Arbitrum down 14 % on the week and Apecoin down almost 14 % of the week. Apecoin down almost 7%, Arbitrum down almost 10%. Huobi down as well. Radix. Radix always has to get in that top five of gainers or losers. And you can see you kind of hit the mark there. All right, anything standing out to you in the markets? Are you looking to buy some or are you looking to maybe see if we go down lower? I'm waiting to see what's going to happen, especially with the support resistance line on Bitcoin. I'm being patient right now. I'm being patient. I'm sitting out. Yep. All right. Well, some people weren't patient and they saw Vitalik tweet out a link. And they impatiently just snapped in, hit that button, they signed in and they connected their wallet. And next thing you know, they got drained from this Vitalik hack, everybody. But it wasn't his wallet that got hacked. It wasn't his bank account that got hacked. But his ex -account did get hacked, everybody. Ethereum co -creator Vitalik Buterin's ex -account reportedly breached. Hacker makes away with $690K. Did they stop there on purpose? Almost $700K, folks. You can see he was leading to a left of $690K. As per Decrypt, the breach happened on Saturday. A post surfaced on his feed promoting NFTs from a software provider, ConsenSys, which turned out to be a scam link displayed to his almost 5 million followers and asked victims to connect their wallets to mint the NFT. Instead, the hacker gained access to the funds. I believe a couple punks got stolen. So most of what got stolen was NFTs, folks. So just say you got to be careful out there. Maybe people don't have a whole bunch of ETH on the wallet, but they have some NFTs. And so they're out there, they're just clicking things, they're linking things, and it didn't end up going well for those people. So you got to be careful clicking links out there, folks. I think it was a little bit of a FOMO. If I'm guessing what, if you see an hour -long post or, you know, and maybe, but when you see it's, you know, you refresh by following and it's a 14 -second link, you might go ahead and click that because, oh, you know, only 5 ,000. Maybe they go get claimed, you go on Etherscan, you see 17 people did it in the last two seconds. You're just going to FOMO in. You got to be careful out there. It happened. It does happen. It happens. Don't think that includes the values of the stolen punks. I thought it did. I'm not sure. We'll look more into that as this story has time to digest, everybody. Just here to talk about, okay, Tim. Tim and the investing bros are out there 9 to 10 a .m. Everybody, you can check that out. All right.
A highlight from Is Polygon Underrated? (Matic Price Prediction)
"Welcome to BitBoy Crypto, my name is AJ and this is the Price Prediction Department. In crypto, there are two words you will hear a thousand times, mass adoption. That is the goal, that is the dream, that is the rocket fuel in a spaceship made out of hopium. And when mass adoption happens, that's when we go to the moon. So when I think about which altcoin out there has done the most to get crypto that mainstream attention, two more words come to mind. Polygon or Matic, whatever you want to call it, let's get it. In this video, we will be dissecting Polygon, which is Ethereum's number one layer two project that is setting out to revolutionize scalability and security. To start off, Matic has always been a coin that's been on everyone's radar. That's not just because of it being a great scaling solution, but that's because of the impact that it's had of putting crypto into the mainstream in a big way. It has literally paved the road on how to get a crypto project backed by legitimate companies. Because all it takes is to get one or two top upper echelon companies and once you lock that in, the floodgates will open because everyone else knows that you are safe to work with. Polygon has earned its great reputation with its partnerships and its product, and it shows. Regardless if the partnership is for an NFT marketplace or building Web3 applications, it's bullish because it's only going to leave to more exposure for crypto. And a lot of these big companies really like to partner with projects that are carbon neutral. And in my opinion, this is kind of an optics thing, but optics matter. So what kind of partnerships are we talking here? We're talking draft kings, Stripe, Reddit, Disney, Adidas, the NFL, Starbucks, Adobe, Meta, Nike, Coca -Cola, and JP Morgan's first DeFi transaction was on Matic. Just last week, Polygon partnered with SK Telecom to create a Web3 ecosystem. And for those of you that don't know, SK Telecom is a giant in Korean telecommunications. Also, the Reddit NFTs on Polygon have been a big hit, and they just hit 40 million in sales last week. In regards to this, one of Matic's founders, Sandeep Nabal, commented on this and he said, Polygon ecosystem's mainstream products are silently reaching magic inflection points of growth. Be it Reddit avatars, draft king NFTs, or Nike dot swoosh, many others lined up too. Soon, AAA gaming too. Slowly but surely, fam. Him hinting at the AAA games really gets me excited for the future, especially because we've seen how successful all the other partnerships have been. And really, it's only a matter of time until real crypto is integrated inside our favorite video games. There's already rumors circulating about crypto being integrated into GTA 6, and if I can get paid to drive down a busy sidewalk, I'm here for it. And as you can see, that list of partnerships I said a little while ago, those are some of the biggest names, the biggest brands on planet earth. So my question is, how far can that visibility take us? Before we get to the price prediction, I want to thank you for being a member of the BitSquad by liking, subscribing, and commenting on this post down below. And thank you to Stake for sponsoring this video. So Matic describes itself as the value layer of the internet. On their website, polygon .technology, it reads, the fundamental protocol that allows anyone to create and exchange value powered by zero knowledge technology. And that's exactly what they're doing. We all know how expensive Ethereum's gas fees are, and this is exactly why we have layer twos to scale this out and make it cheaper for the user. The layer two projects are so good at scaling that Ethereum is not rolling out sharding the way they originally intended. And that's because the layer two projects like Polygon have it covered. To be clear, there is more to Polygon that meets the eye and with Supernets and Polygon ID and Midan coming in the future, it is going to get wild. And if you're on the fence thinking about jumping in, buying into the Polygon ecosystem, I implore you to do hours of homework and research outside of just this video before making that decision. So it's worth noting that back in March, Polygon rolled out the ZK EVM or the zero knowledge scaling solution that is equivalent to the Ethereum virtual machine. To be clear, the Polygon proof of stake sidechain is compatible with the EVM. It runs parallel to the Ethereum mainnet and the gas fees are paid in Matic. But the ZK EVM is built on top of Ethereum. It utilizes zero knowledge to speed things up, and it still benefits from Ethereum security. But unlike the proof of stake, the ZK EVM, the gas fees are paid in Ethereum, not Matic. Shout out to Finn Miller from the Daily Coin who wrote this article here. This article really helped clear things up for me in regards to the difference between the Polygon scaling solutions, and you should definitely check it out if you have a spare moment. So when Ethereum's founder Vitalik Buterin carried out the first transaction on the ZK EVM, he said this. He said millions of constraints for man, unconstrained scalability for mankind. That is an excellent quote, and the ZK EVM is really breaking the mold on what's possible for a scaling solution, and they already have exceeded 400 ,000 unique wallets. To be fair, you know, they do have some serious competition with Optimism and Arbitrum, but I kind of feel like it will be a gradual run up as we inch closer to the bull run with the activity on the network. And with all that said, let's get down to the price prediction. Remember, the equation for On December 26, 2021, Matic put in its all -time high of $2 .90. Its market cap at the time was $19 .75 billion, with a supply just over $7 billion. Today, Matic is ranked 13th by market cap and is currently priced right around $0 .55. Unfortunately, Matic has lost over $14 billion from its market cap, and it currently sits at $5 .12 billion. On the contrary, Matic's circulating supply has grown over 2 billion coins and sits at $9 .31 billion. And as you can see, Matic's supply has gone up about 31 % since its previous all -time high. For context, if we took Matic's previous all -time high market cap, but put that with its current circulating supply, that once $2 .90 Matic would now only be a $2 .12 Matic. Tokenomics matter. Unlike other coins that have terrible emission schedules and terrible tokenomics, Matic is already 93 % vested since its max supply is 10 billion coins. This is very good news. Originally, Matic was supposed to finish its emission schedule and be fully vested by mid -2025, but now the remainder of its emission schedule is changing since the release of the Polygon 2 .0 The new whitepaper is a very interesting read. It only took me like 30 -40 minutes to read the whole thing. And if you want to read it, we will link it below in the description. I highly suggest that you check it out. It is sort of unclear exactly when Matic will migrate to POL. I read that they're giving people four years to kind of get ready for this thing, but it could happen earlier than that. So with the release of the Polygon 2 .0 whitepaper, that does change the how the last 7 % of coins will come in really won't make that much of a difference. And since things aren't as cut and dry now as they used to be, I'm going to estimate that Matic supply will be around 9 .5 billion by the top of November 2025. And for the record, I'm saying November 2025 as the projected top for the top of the next bull run since it is a year and a half after the Bitcoin halving. And that has been the case the last three times. So now that we have the supply, what about the market cap? A lot of people have really liked that I've been using dominance as a gauge to see what is possible. If you look at this chart here on your screen, you will see that the 0 .87 % level has been a very important support resistance line on the Matic dominance chart. So the idea with the dominance chart based off previous videos is the idea that the total crypto market cap could get between 7 to 10 trillion by next bull run. So if Matic gets to this 0 .87 level by the top of the next bull run and the total market cap is 7 to 10 trillion, what would that make its market cap? So if Matic got back to that important support resistance level at 0 .87 % and the total crypto market cap went to $7 trillion, Matic's market cap would be 60 .9 making its price with the heightened supply $6 .41. Using the same equation, if the total market cap for crypto went to $10 trillion, if Matic got back to that same dominance level, its market cap would be $87 billion. And with the heightened supply that we estimated earlier, Matic's price would be $9 .16. Some of you might know that the price prediction department was actually a segment on the BitBoy Crypto livestream before it became an every Sunday show. Some of you might know that I covered Matic on the livestream about three months ago. And at the time, my price prediction for Matic was $7 to $8. So for Matic, I'm saying $7 to $8. Is that too high or too low? And at the time, I was not using dominance as a gauge like I am now. And reflecting on the price range I got by using the dominance, it actually opens up my range from $7 to $8 to $6 .40 to $9 .20. And I really think $6 .40 to $9 .20 is a larger range since it covers more of a gap in market cap, a gap in price. And honestly, I feel like this time, the dominance gauge is going to be my price prediction. Sometimes I just use it as a gauge and don't make it my price prediction. In those cases, my prediction is normally lower than the gauge. But in this case, I'm going to hang my hat on the dominance prediction. And my Matic price prediction for the top of the next bull run is $6 .40 to $9 .20. Boom, there you go. There is my Matic price prediction. I hope everyone out there got a lot out of this video. And what did you think of my prediction? Was I too bearish? Was I too bullish? Let me know below in the comments. For the next couple of weeks, I do have a couple coins planned that I want to do. But if there is a specific coin that I have not covered yet, also let me know down below. One last thing, there is now an official playlist for the price prediction department that has all the videos I've made for the past couple of months all in one spot. Be sure to check that out if you haven't seen them all. And with that being said, my name is AJ writes crypto and I hope you have a great rest of your weekend. Later.

It's not a bank stock, believe it or not. And this is Better Home and Finance Holding, or Better .o. Better .o. I tell you what. It is a, let's see, online mortgage lender since shockwaves when it dropped 93%, making altcoins even seem like a better bet. Very interesting. We're seeing a fundamental shift in the world of investing. What we're seeing is that crypto is seen to be risky. A lot of people thought crypto is way riskier than the stock market. And, yes, it's kind of proven to be true over the short term over the last 10 to 12 years. However, you're starting to see the cracks in the stock market, and you're starting to see that the riskiness of crypto to people, people are starting to think about it a lot more in terms of the upside potential, not the downside potential. And they're willing to take riskier bets to change their lives because the economy is so bad and the stock market is so bad, the inflation is so bad. And so you're seeing the cracks in the stock. People are losing faith in the status quo of the stock market, and they're also at the same time becoming more comfortable with risk on assets like crypto. It's like a meeting in the middle almost. One day, crypto won't be as explosive as it is now. It's one of the opportunities here now for you. So, there you go. Alright. So, moving on here, Prime Trust admits to losing $8 million invested in the Terra ecosystem. And let me tell you, this is interesting because our guy, Corey Klipschin, Swan Bitcoin, this is who he was using to hold all your Bitcoin, the same people who lost $8 million in Terra. Guys, Bitcoin is self -sovereign. Bitcoin is about owning it and about custody and about digital real estate. It's about that.
A highlight from Altcoins Set For INSANE Pump If This Happens! (SEC Will Lose Again)

Includes 7 ,500 EV cap cost reduction. Not all customers will qualify. Residency restrictions apply. Grind to a screeching halt. So that is a good thing. So Paris gets in, looks good for crypto. But until such a time when a Republican sits in the Oval Office, John Stark said it's unlikely the regulator to become any more friendly towards crypto, predicting that they'll reject the current swath of Bitcoin ETFs for a range of compelling reasons, AKA reasons that they pulled out of the you know what. All right, Senator Lummis is backing Coinbase against the SEC. Just more arrows going against Gary Gensler here. She's a prominent advocate for cryptocurrency. She filed an amicus brief on the 11th to support the Coinbase exchange against the SEC's lawsuit there. She maintained that the responsibility for regulations lies with Congress, not the SEC. Here's her quote, I believe. Now this might be a Coinbase's quote. The transaction over Coinbase's platform and Prime are not and do not involve contractual undertakings to deliver for future value, reflecting the income profits or assets of a business. They're commodity sales, with the obligations of both sides to charge entirely the moment the token is delivered in exchange for payment, AKA talking about the Orange Grove case where the SEC says everything's a commodity depending on are you working towards its profit? Hey, then it's not a commodity, it's now a security. I think they're pretty clear. But yeah, now we have a lawyer, I mean, I'm sorry, we have a senator coming in filing an amicus brief on behalf of Coinbase against a governmental agency. I would say, call me crazy, I would say that's pretty bullish, pretty bullish for the court case there. So I'm rooting for Coinbase. So I think we're all rooting for Coinbase. All those coins, they got beat down pretty hard. I have a big bag of a lot of those coins. I think there's a little opportunity there. If you think Coinbase is gonna win against the SEC, I do, but you know, I'm not a lawyer. I mean, they have the backing of Larry Fink and BlackRock. So it's hard to bet against Coinbase. Yeah, do you wanna bet against BlackRock? Yeah. I probably don't. One more thing on the SEC here. Law expert says the brief filed by six law scholars absolutely shreds the SEC's theory, you know, where they go over what is an investment contract and whether it requires contractual undertaking, contradicting the SEC. Here we have someone with the same length of neck as Deasy there. So he said the amicus brief filed by the law scholars is devastating for the SEC. Murphy noted that the amicus brief absolutely shreds their investment contract theory. So this was followed by law professors and scholars who were experts in security laws and related fields and probably have a big bag of Bitcoin. They include UCLA, Boston University, Fordham Law University, University of Chicago and Yale Law School professors. They noted that after the Howey decision, there's a common thread in how investment contracts were defined. The thread was that investor must be promised by virtue of his or her investment and ongoing contractual interest in the income, profits or assets of the enterprise. When you have a token, you do not have those things. So good, good news for the SEC. No, sorry, for Coinbase. We're rooting, rooting for Brian Armstrong, rooting for the bald brother, the bald deployer there. I'm rooting, I think I feel pretty good about it though. How about you? Yeah, I understand that. I was a little worried before the tight relationship with BlackRock, I'm gonna be honest, but I just don't see Larry Fing and BlackRock being defeated here. I have a question for you. There's some coins, there's ADA was on there, Filecoin, Polygon, I think about 48 coins listed in the SEC versus Coinbase lawsuit. Coinbase wins, what happens to those 48 currencies? Well, it's gonna be interesting to see does the SEC try to go after everyone individually the way they went after Ripple and XRP? I don't think they can and Gary's even kind of alluded to, they're gonna pause new lawsuits with crypto, they're gonna go after AI. So I don't think it's gonna happen, but at the same time, I don't think there's a winning strategy for any of those things, especially with the XRP decision. Then if they lose to Coinbase and Ripple, what's the precedence to go after any coin individually that it'll be obliterated? Yeah, Sand is one of the tokens, I see someone talking about Sand as well. We're not gonna get 100 % pump is my opinion here. So when we had the XRP news with the SEC, all the crypto attention was on one coin. Now when we have a Coinbase win over SEC, I'm saying win, all the attention will be on 48 coins. And so I don't think all the dollars are gonna flow into those, not everyone's picking one coin and not everyone's gonna invest in all 48 coins. So maybe 20 % pumps, I'm gonna throw out a number here. The best time to get a great deal on a Jeep SUV is now during the summer of Jeep event.

A highlight from When Will Bitcoin And XRP Stop Falling? (SHIB About To Dump)
"Guys, historically, we have never, on Bitcoin, seen a red July that wasn't at least followed by a red August. We will keep going on here. You know, I want to start off with some SHIB TA just for you, Deezy. Hey, hey, let's pump my bag of $100 worth of SHIB. Out of curiosity, when did you purchase? I actually just pulled up Coinbase earlier today. I'm up like 4%. I think I got it last week. I think I just got it about a week ago. All right, well, I mean, anyone who purchased here back in June, you definitely have had a nice little rally going on. Someone clipped that. That was awesome. I'm sorry. Did you do a cool trick? I wasn't looking. It's all right. The moment's past. I got bad news for you, though, Deezy. Well, good news. You probably should look at taking profits at some point soon. The first thing I'm looking at right now, we do have a rising wedge on Shiba that traditionally breaks to the downside. There's a lot of things kind of coming in here saying we're a little overextended. Let's look. 4 -hour chart is what we're looking at here. I like using Sharp Prime. It is my favorite indicator to use, but everyone loves their own, so you'd use whatever works for you. Whenever you see this orange box on Sharp Prime, that is an overbought box. It did just flash here this morning. We are flowing up in the money flow, but we're getting a little overextended with our trend fusion. And of course, the RSI is coming up high. There's an outside chance it goes a little higher, but at the moment, if it does not, if we start seeing a pause in SHIB, you will see bearish divergence forming, and then you go out to the daily chart where we're also getting some reversal signals here. We've got a reversal red triangle right here and pulling up the dynamic reactor and trend assistant. We're coming into some strong rejection right with that rising level of rejection. And again, more often than not, rising wedges break to the downside. We're hitting resistance on several different things, so it's something to definitely keep your eye on. It's possibly time to take some profit. Last thing we can do is even take a look at some fib ranges from the last peak we had back in April down to what is currently the bottom. Right there, you're going to see the resistance coming in at 0 .5 on Fibonacci as well. Can we go to the left side of that green line? You see that green line form right there. Would you consider that a rising wedge that then led to a little parabolic? It's on the far left side of the TradingView screen you're looking at right now. Now it's over a little. You've changed the axis a little, but would you say that rising wedge led to that parabolic pump? Or is that just how the market was going? Rising wedge led to a parabolic...you mean a falling wedge? Go left, go left, move it to the left, slowly, slowly, slowly, right there. No, see that would actually be a time where it broke out the wrong direction. So rising wedges usually break to the downside. I'm sure if I were to go back and look at some news, something happened in August that pumped it. I was just asking, is that a rising wedge? That's a rising wedge that traditionally breaks to the downside. thesis So the I saw was the rising wedges typically break out to the upside. That's false. I don't know if this was typically. You just said he laid out some examples where it led to a parabolic run -up. And so I was going based off of that. But as you said, I do remember that typically they do break to the downside. So maybe you have something to check out with sheep. Because you see these rising wedges and then you see a little parabolic candle. So it's just an interesting coin that seems to play by its own rules on some levels. Yeah, you guys are wondering what he's talking about right here. It's not a rising wedgie. This is a rising wedge. And it's true. It is one. TA is never 100%. You're not going to find any technical analysts say that every single time you draw these formations, you get the same breakout. In this case, what you saw, I would actually kind of classify this, Deezy, as a little bit of a fake out. If you went back here, this is a rising wedge. We didn't hit the resistance. We broke through it, but then quickly dropped back into it. And take a look at this, what you're doing to predict what happens in price action. Come on now. You go from the opening of the wedge. You move that over to the breakout. And sure enough, that was the price action we ended up getting back down here a couple of months later. It took a while to play out. But it still played its route later on even after the fake out happened. We're going to briefly interrupt this. I just want to give a special shout out to our sponsor, Stake. Big shout out to Stake. We love them. So the same thing here, what I'm looking at. You know, you can't predict a false breakout, but you can start to sit here and say, based off how traders are trading this right now, it should move to the downside. And if it does break out at some point, let's just pretend maybe it breaks out somewhere over here. You're more than likely seeing another, should she be new, come down, what is that? One, two, three, four, five zeros, and then a six and a four follow it back down to levels we saw in June. It kind of matches with some other things that I believe about how the space is moving. Let's move over to Bitcoin this morning. Right now, I told you, short term, a little bullish on Bitcoin, but longer term still bearish. One of the things we just broke out on Bitcoin was a falling trading channel. So this is where the kind of micro bullishness comes in. Look at how we actually broke through the resistance, came back down, had some wicks drop below, but for the most part turned resistance into support. And now we're back trading within this flat range once again. So a short term pump back up to 29 .5 is definitely not out of the cards, but the macro, Deezy, this is where I get more concerned, especially when you go out towards two day and three day. You guys can see on oscillators, by the way, this is chart prime, but you're going to see the same thing if you go to normal oscillators, if you go to Market Cipher, if you go to Lux, whatever you're looking at, oscillators are dropping very rapidly. Money flow is dropping rapidly, and we're not oversold yet on these larger timeframes. I believe, Deezy, that we're going to continue to keep this former resistance level as support, but watch in this yellow box, I believe that a $28 ,000 price, Frankie talked about this yesterday, I think there's a chance we retouch this rising blue level of support later in August at $28 ,000, and then it's a decision time. Do we lose support at that point and drop down to $25 ,000 or lower, or do we make a bounce and try to set a new higher high? As I mentioned the other day, I did mention this yesterday briefly, not during the TA section, but just we were talking about price action in general. Let me go up to log chart here on Bitcoin. Guys, historically, we have never on Bitcoin seen a red July that wasn't at least followed by a red August. That one red August was in 2016, if I zoom in here just a little more for you guys, we had one more red month after a red July, and then we continue to rally, but you can see in 2011, that started a multi -month slide back in 2014, multi -month slide, and back in 2019, which the similarities between what we're seeing right now and 2019 continue to pile up. If we were to match it perfectly, we're not looking at a real bottom, not counting this COVID bottom that happened in March 2020, I'm more looking around this range of November, December, probably more November looking for a true bottom on Bitcoin. Ben talked about this yesterday, when you're looking at four -year cycle, it looks like November of this year more than likely should be the bottom, before a little bit of sideways action, which again, take out COVID and it would have been sideways. When you say the bottom, you mean 2023 bottom? I mean bottom for this, yeah you're right, not a new bear market bottom, but a new bottom for this little slump in Bitcoin price. I'm thinking somewhere between $25 ,000 to $20 ,000, I think if the bears get a lot of control, we're talking about $20 ,000, at the moment, I'm pretty convinced $25 ,000 will be touched once again by Bitcoin. The question is, does it happen here in the next couple weeks, or do we hold off till November? Either way, history would say, we technically have a green August right now, but after setting a red July, you do not see August turn green, and a lot of times you see August red, September red, and October red, and the question is what happens in November, that's what I'm going to keep my eye on. Alright, my hot take, it's going to be hard to predict, I think a lot of people may be looking at this, so I would be more apt to compare it to just broad four year cycles, versus looking at Julys, but I think different areas are going to be different. They back each other up though, so the four year cycle and looking at what red Julys do, they actually agree with each other that we should have some more red months, and here's another thing, I'm giving an unpopular take, but what's another unpopular take that I've given recently, and that is XRP back down to $0 .55, and guess what? Right now we are sitting down at $0 .66, and if you look at the daily chart, and you look at the oscillators, the oscillators and the money flow, everything is still flowing down. I know a lot of other traders have kind of looked at $0 .64 as an area to keep your eyes on, but what I'm seeing on these larger timeframes, as price is dropping on XRP, we're not really overextended yet, so let's watch what happens if the price gets to $0 .64, but I'm expecting it to continue to drop, and I think I'm going to be right. I think $0 .55, $0 .57 is in the cards. Market buy at $0 .56. Do not let it hit $0 .55. Just keep market buying, keep market buying. View maritime marvels and travel insightful itineraries.

A highlight from "Buy Your Bitcoin Here!" (Elon Musk Building Crypto Trading Platform)
"Welcome. Yeah, we need to get that on. Hey, welcome to big boy crypto. Home of the BitSquad. Largest and greatest crypto community in all of the Interweb. Johnny! Thank you for joining everybody. Today is August 4th. It is 1130 AM Eastern Standard Time. Can we cut the TV on so I can see where the camera is at? Hey, it's just a simple press of a button. Ooh, it is opening up. Open up Hulu. No, no, no, Hulu. No, go to Disney+. I want to watch Mandalorian. Oh, I got a show to host. I guess I'll do that instead. Guys, we're going to get right into the crypto news. We got a lot of big stuff. We're talking about Bitcoin, of course. We're talking about the government. Some ETH updates happening as well. And we're going to talk about Elon Musk and X. Shout out to NWO, the wrestling group there, mid nineties, WCW. Make sure you're joining us on YouTube. Make sure you were subbed. I mean, so hit that button. Make sure you're following us on Twitter or X. I'm DZ underscore BTC. We also have BitBoy underscore crypto, I believe. All right. You ready to just get right into the news here. How are you feeling today, Tim? Are you feeling a little bit bullish? We got. Yeah. Oh, wow. We just flipped into the negative. It was like 0 .3 to green an hour ago. I think I'm a little bullish, maybe on a shorter timeframe still, but not bullish still on the like we're talking about the next couple of weeks. No, not really. Well, we have the market cap of the crypto tire ecosystem. It is flat. It is at 0 .0%. You actually don't see that that often. 24 hour volume coming in at $35 billion and gas is low. So if you want to get some cheap alts on Uniswap or something like that, now is the time is coming in at 28 Gwei there, 14 Paraguay. Life is deezier when you DZA. How about this? Life is easier when you hit the like button, everybody. So please hit that like button. Bitcoin is relatively flat folks. It is up, but it is only up slightly. It is up 0 .1%. Ethereum up 0 .4%. We have to scroll down pretty far before we see any kind of real action. We see Solana in the single digits. It is up 2 .2 % and Litecoin down 3 .2%. The DZ short on the day of the halving. You're still in profit. You're still in profit. I don't know. Maybe close it at some point. Shiba is up. Hey, I bought my first bag and now I'm up. There you go. Your first Shiba purchase ever? Ever. Wow. I have still yet to do that. Okay. Yeah. Just looking at it from a TA perspective, you are a TA guy. So it is very, very chart interesting there. I think it'll probably have a second run up for sure. I don't know if it'll hit all time highs, but we're still way, way low before we even get that. I think it was a 10X or something to get to all time highs. Do DZ and Tim have beef? No, we have a steak bet. It is a beef bet. Yeah, we have a beef bet. It is a beef bet. Yeah. I mean, we do have beef. Yeah. Are you going to cook like an impossible steak for me? Well, I won't have to cook it. So I was kind of wondering what you were going to do. I'll eat the steak that you buy me and cook. So I'm looking forward to it. Wait, so I have to buy the steak that you cook me after you lose? That doesn't seem right. Maybe we just go to Jason Kasper's farm and just be like, hey man, can we cut into your cow or something? We'll let it heal. We'll come back in six months. All right, let's look at the top gainers. Everybody, we have Kasper is up. I am feeling pale as a ghost for not buying any of this. It is up 8 .6%. We have fracks of the opposite 6 .8%. OKB is up 6 .7, flex up 6 .2. The previously mentioned Shiba curve on the way up, it is still down a 16 % on the week. So it was down about 20. Now it is up four and a half percent. After that though, then we're falling below 3%. So let's look at the top losers. We don't like losers, but we do like Beck and the Odelay album. Compound is down 4 .7%. Stacks is down about 4%. Then we have Litecoin, Kava, Gala, and the Graph rounding out the rest. So we now have Graph hitting $0 .10. Where is that in the historical? I think it went up to $2. It went above $2. So looking pretty flat. But then when you hit on that 90 day, you're like, oh, I could have definitely gotten a little bit cheaper, but hey, we're coming in close enough to a dime. I might look to scoop a little bit more of that. Today is Friday. DCA is the way for DZ, at least, you know, trying to DCA on Friday. What are you going to DCA into today? We see someone getting into some algo, algo, algo, algo all the way. Let's see. Beef coin. I don't know if there's a beef coin, folks. Bald? Bald's cheap. Isn't the inflation on Graph like bananas? Let's see. So we have circulating supplies. Well, look at it. It's at 91%. So maybe it was. All right. All right. So that's a good narrative. That is a good narrative. So at 91 % of the token is out. Look at sweet. Look at that. Look at some of these other coins and you can say, wow, 91 % is really, really good. So I like the tokenomics just from this brief cursory glance coming in at right under a billion dollars. Okay. ABT, quant, ETH, CAS, someone's getting some CAS, more quant, HBAR. Okay. More SHIB. All right. There's a lot of people. Okay. Fade and TradFi. I'm sure whatever DZ gets, you'll love his beef in your mouth. Sorry. Couldn't help myself. I'm in this crib together, everybody. All right. Are you ready to get into the charts? What do we have? We have T Bro. Is that, it's not T Shroom, is it? T Bro charts. Trading Bros. Oh, okay. Well, it's Investing Bros. So they got that wrong. But we will, we'll keep going on here. You know, I want to start off with some SHIB TA just for you, DZ. Let's pump my bag of $100 worth of SHIB. Out of curiosity, when did you purchase? What date? I actually just put up Coinbase earlier today. I'm up like 4%. I think I got it last week. I think I just got it about a week ago. All right. Well, I mean, anyone who purchased here back in June, you definitely have had a nice little rally going on. If you purchased a week ago. That was awesome. I'm sorry. Did you do a cool trick? I wasn't looking. That's all right. The moment's past. I got bad news for you though, DZ. Well, good news. You probably should look at taking profits at some point soon. The first thing I'm looking at right now, we do have a rising wedge on Shiba that traditionally breaks to the downside. There's a lot of things kind of coming in here saying we're a little overextended. Let's look for our chart. What we're looking at here. I like using Sharp Prime. It is my favorite indicator to use, but everyone loves their own. So you'd use whatever works for you. Whenever you see this orange box on Sharp Prime, that is an overbought box. It did just flash here this morning. We are flowing up in the money flow, but we're getting a little overextended with our confusion. Of course, the RSI is coming up high. There's an outside chance it goes a little higher, but at the moment, if it does not, if we start seeing a pause in SHIB, you will see bearish divergence forming. Then you go out to the daily chart where we're also getting some reversal signals here. We got a reversal red triangle right here and pulling up the dynamic reactor and trend assistant. We're coming into some strong rejection right with that rising level of rejection. Again, more often than not, rising wedges break to the downside. We're hitting resistance several on different things, so it's something to definitely keep your eye on. Possibly time to take some profit. Last thing we can do is even take a look at some fib ranges. From the last peak we had back in April down to what is currently the bottom, right there, you're going to see the resistance coming in at 0 .5 on Fibonacci as well. Can we go to the left side of that green line? You see that green line form right there. Would you consider that a rising wedge that then led to a little parabolic? It's on the far left side of the trading view screen you're looking at right now. Now it's over a little. You've changed the axis a little, but would you say that rising wedge led to that parabolic pump or is that just, you know, how the market was going? Rising wedge led to a parabolic, you mean a falling wedge? Go left, go left, move it to the left, slowly, slowly, slowly, right there. No, see that would actually be a time where it broke out the wrong direction. So rising wedges usually break to the downside. I'm sure if I were to go back and look at some news, something happened. Is that a rising wedge? Would you say that's a rising wedge? That's a rising wedge that broke down. Yeah. Okay. So the thesis I saw was the rising wedges typically break out to the upside. I don't know if this was typically, you just said, you know, he laid out some examples where it led to a parabolic run up. And so I was going based off of that. But as you say, I do remember, yeah, typically they do break to the downside. So maybe something to check out with sheep because you see these rising wedges and then you see a little parabolic candle. So it's just an interesting coin that seems to play by its own rules on some levels. Yeah. You guys are wondering what he's talking about right here. It's not a rising wedgie. This is a rising wedge and it's true. Like it is one, TA is never 100%. You're not going to find any technical analysts say that every single time you draw these formations, you get the same breakout. In this case, what you saw, I would actually kind of classify this DZ as a little bit of a fake out. If you went back here, this is a rising wedge. We didn't hit the resistance. We broke through it, but then quickly dropped back into it. And take a look at this, what you're doing to predict what happens in price action. Come on.

And if it does break out at some point, let's just pretend maybe it breaks out somewhere over here. You're more than likely seeing another come, should she be new, come down. What is that? One, two, three, four, five zeros, and then a six and a four follow it back down to levels we saw in June. It kind of matches with some other things that I believe about how the space is moving.

I'm giving an unpopular take, but what's another unpopular take that I've given recently? That is XRP back down to $0 .55. Guess what? Right now, we are sitting down at $0 .66, and if you look at the daily chart and you look at the oscillators, the oscillators and the money flow, everything is still flowing down. I know a lot of other traders have kind of looked at $0 .64 as an area to keep your eyes on, but what I'm seeing on these larger time frames, as price is dropping on XRP, we're not really overextended yet, so let's watch what happens if the price gets to $0 .64, but I'm expecting it to continue to drop, and I think I'm going to be right. I think $0 .55, $0 .57 is in the cards. Well, XRP community, you have a challenge. Market buy at $0 .56. Do not let it hit $0 .55. Just keep market buying. Is mercury in retrograde? What's Saturn doing right now? Where's the moon? Wasn't it the super moon? Was it an orange one? Was it a pumpkin? I don't know. Some kind of special moon, too. Moon math. All right. Well, I think we're ready to talk about the top story. Tim, anything else you want to add? Do you want to talk about dominance? Do you want to talk about Bitcoin dominance? No, because I know I'm going to be right. Well, I mean, again, history says no. History is still playing out that the Bitcoin dominance should be seen. Let's just do the top story. Let's get it. Bitcoin will not hit 60 % dominance. All right. I'm sorry. What's your metric? 60%. On trading view. On trading view. Okay, so it was that like $58 on CoinGecko? $58 on Coin, on MarketCap, and I think $56 on Gecko. Okay. Well, we'll see. That was, you know, I allowed Tim to move the goalposts on that one because we did not say trading view, CoinGecko, CoinMarketCap. He chose the one that was most favorable for his bet. And I allowed it to happen. So that's fine. I just wanted to point that out. I gave you trading view. Can we like turn this pissing match into something? Like, why does that matter to the studio audience? Why does that matter? Good point. So CoinGecko has a 4 % differential from trading view when it comes to Bitcoin dominance. And so there's some that say Bitcoin dominance is a little bit higher. Some are saying it's a little bit lower. I'm giving Tim the most favorable metric for his bet and the least favorable for mine. How is that going to make someone money? So me and Tim have a bet for a steak dinner that Bitcoin, I say it will not hit 60%. He says it will. This one might not be a money thing as much as it's a pride thing. So, Nick, you're right. We're getting a little into some nonsense, Deezy. You and I are really trying to cut back on that.
"lux" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"And people might wonder, well, why are they going to this trouble now that minor league pay is going to be collectively bargained, which is true, but as Evan lays out in his piece, this may still give MLB greater leverage in those CPA negotiations if there are exemptions to the federal minimum wage laws. That might be a reason for them to do it, although MLB insists that that has nothing to do with it and they have other motivations here, but anyway, just wanted to note that this was not the only connection between MLB and the commissioner and owners and Florida lawmakers was not solely book related, but also minor league pay related. I can't decide what scenario I think is worse here. Like, did they think that they're going to be able to do stuff like this and then not have anyone know about it or did they know that people will know and they just don't care 'cause like the optics of it are bad. Like what they're asking for seems obviously bad to ask for an exemption to minimum wage laws. There's been a ton of backlash to their efforts to curb the pay of minor leaguers at the federal level. People don't successful. Right. Right. Other than a lawsuit that went against them recently. Right, but people have been, I think, appropriately critical of those efforts because it just strikes people, particularly when you're dealing with guys at that level who aren't, you know, they're not going to be making big, big money, potentially ever and certainly not for a long time. The best that you can hope for is that they got a reasonable signing bonus and have the cushion that that affords them, but that piece of it looks bad. And then the donation piece of it looks bad. It just is, it feels like quid pro quo and we can look at campaign donations. You can go look those up right now. If you want to go see what your favorite team's owner has done in the last couple of election cycles, it's all that feces website. It's easy enough to find that stuff. So I don't know which scenario I find more disconcerting that they think that they will successfully sort of obfuscate those efforts and keep them from the public eye or that they know they'll come out and they're like, whatever, it doesn't matter. We're just going to do what we're going to do because it might end up making us more money. I think they're both the key Ben. I don't particularly care for them. Yeah. I would probably go with the latter. I would guess that that is more likely. And then the only other actual on field observations here. First of all, it's been a brutal week when it comes to injuries. Yeah, man. We will be doing the Dodgers preview next time. We will, I'm sure, be talking about Gavin Lux, which is just a devastating injury for him and for the team, but Lux and glass now and Joe musgrove and Brendan Rodgers. It's just like, can we just please? Stop. Please. I mean, it's not new. This happens to some extent every spring, but it is always just as upsetting when it's just to get to opening day. And then if guys get hurt, well, at least it was a worthy sacrifice because the game's counted. I know they have to get ready for games that count and it is inevitable that they're going to get hurt sometimes during that process, but it just sucks. It sucks when your season is derailed or ended before it officially begins and with Lux, it's just one of those weird things where he landed adley just on a fairly routine play. I mean, it wasn't so routine. It's just like, you know, you plant your foot in the wrong way and there goes a crucial season in your career before it even gets going. It's just, it's the worst. Yeah, it really stinks. They're all bad. I don't want to downplay the impact that any of them will have either on the player or their team, but with Lux in particular, you just feel so bad for the guy. His first year in the big leagues was 2020 and it was weird and he didn't play the way he wanted to and, you know, he's been sort of moved around off his natural position and the bloom was sort of off the rose and then he looked like he was really starting to turn things around at points last year and we got the, you know, the hope springs eternal reports of increased bat speed after going on a driveline and all of that stuff. And so you thought, here's the chance. We're going to maybe we're going to see the guy who we have like a 60 future value on at one point and then to just non contact injuries are the worst because he's just. This is not supported by medical science. What I'm about to say. I don't mean that I'm going to try to sell you Ivermectin or anything, but I don't know that this is like an actual thing in terms of the ability of players to recover or what their long-term prognosis is in terms of how likely they are to be re injured. But whenever a guy, whether it's baseball or football or anything, goes down with a non contact injury, I always just feel more protective of him and more nervous for him when he comes back, right? Because when the force of your own body is enough to damage you, it just feels like you're vulnerable and I don't know that that is remotely correct, but that is my sort of experience of watching those guys where I'm like, are you okay? Are you okay? What about now? Are you still okay? Are you okay? Because it feels like they could just come apart at any moment. And so there was that view down sort of the over third base down to second where you saw like the it buckle and you know what? I'd say to people if you haven't seen it, don't watch it, you know? It's yucky. It feels gross. It's not like dak Prescott, but it kind of makes you get like that's not supposed to have been that way. So it's just sucks. It's super sucks. It does. On a later note, I did enjoy the umpire lists inning. Yeah. You see that? I see it, but I don't know if I've bragged about this enough to you, but you know who I got to watch pitch this week in person. So I was on my way home from oh Tony. Yeah. So it's a good reason to miss it. But I heard about it. Yeah, it was the Orioles and the pirates, right? And they just decided to play an unnecessary bottom of the 9th, even though Pittsburgh, the home team, was leading, and the empires had departed and they just played on as we've discussed in the past in the early days of Major League Baseball. They used to play unnecessary bottoms of the 9th sometimes until they decided to oh, we don't actually need to do this. But in spring training, weird wacky stuff happens and we get ties and we get in and early and then we get a necessary bottom of the 9th that because the empire said peaced out, we're just passing strikes call by the Orioles catcher was named maverick handley. Amazing. Maverick handled. No notes. Perfect. No. And he did a good job, apparently. He was pulling double duty here, catcher slash home plate ump, and seemed like he was calling pitches pretty accurately and people weren't too upset with him. Granted the stakes were not super high, given that the spring training and the game was already decided. So it was essentially a scrimmage at that point, but he pronounced himself a 100% accurate on his ball and strike calls. Are you contemplating his scherzo? Does he displace who's on fire at the perfect game? Oh.

"Ascending Mariners, as well as the improved angels and rangers, but the new balance scheduled might provide some relief for Oakland and rescue them from a 110 loss season. The baseball tonight podcast wind projection. Sarah Lang said 65 60. The go to project 64.6, which I just can't fathom in a tough division. I've got Oakland with 58. Allen Gonzalez covers baseball for ESPN. He's back home in California after a time in Arizona, Alvin, how are you doing? I'm doing great buster. How are you doing, man? I'm doing great. I spent a lot of time yesterday digging through the aftermath of the news about Gavin Lux. Torn ACL out for the year. And I wrote a piece that I think is going to run on ESPN dot com later today about the Dodgers potential alternatives now at shortstop. And a couple of observations. One, I really feel like that casual baseball fans don't understand what a big injury this is. And two, when you go through all the alternatives for the Dodgers, they're no great alternatives. There are, I mean, they are an organization as it wrote in the piece that have distinguished themselves by their depth, but in this case, this is as vulnerable as I've ever seen them since Andrew Friedman took over in a particular position in a particular moment. What do you think? Well, I would say that there are upper level position player depth, particularly on the infield, is not great, at least not outside of the active roster. And I think you're absolutely right. You're not overstating the impact of the camera luxury, because I mean, if you just sort of take a bird's eye look at the Dodgers. This whole season was all about taking a step back and letting their young players have a runway to play. To prove themselves because that's where they felt like they were. They were at in their organizational trajectory. And nobody represented that better than Gavin Lux goyan and his age 25 season. The guy that I will remind you, they refuse to trade in several other instances in the past to get ready to ready to go impact players for a pennant race because they felt like Gavin Lux was going to be a future star for them. And they felt that shortstop was his best position. Some of the Dodgers coaches that I spoke with in Arizona before this injury were really high on how Gavin Lux his arm would play at shortstop. They felt that he could be able to handle the position even without shifting and needless to say, they love his bat. I mean, that's his calling card, right? They love his approach as a plate. They felt like eventually he could hit at the top of their lineup. With Gavin Lux down, I mean, look, the immediate thing you say is McGill real house is going to be your everyday shortstop. He was not brought in to be the everyday shortstop. He was brought in to be a backup. Chris Taylor will see some time at shortstop, they might even have Mookie bets play some second base to give them a little bit more infield depth. But look, I said this on Twitter yesterday, eventually they're going to need somebody. They can't replace Gavin Lux in the immediate. And their lineup is lacking. They let tray turn or go, Justin Turner is not there anymore. You know, it's basically max muncy and Chris Taylor and coming off some really down years. They needed the steadiness that Gavin Lux when he's healthier right can provide, and now they're not going to have it. And I, you know, he's had three years of apprenticeships for the Dodgers, Gavin Lux, and just being around him last year. First off, he's a super talented, he's a confident player, but you could feel last year like that growing. And it felt like this year was the year potentially he was just going to be a monster presence in that lineup. Yeah, I mean, did you feel the same thing being around him last year? They feel like he's a leader. They feel like he's a leader. He's eventually going to be a leader in their Clubhouse. They've always seen it that way. And, you know, I was listening to him talk. I wasn't in Arizona in the last couple of days with this injury habit, but I watched his interview. It just sort of watching him break down and talking about how what an honor it is to be the shortstop for the Los Angeles Dodgers. I think he really carried that. And you talked to the Dodgers coaches. He was in LA really early on working on shortstop because he wanted to get it right, right? Him and Miguel Vargas together in Los Angeles, taking ground balls. I just coaches in December with nobody was there because he wanted to be the shortest. And just it's tough for the Dodgers. I honestly really feel for Gavin Lux, because this was his time, right? This was like his time in his career to take that step forward to step that a lot of people in the Dodgers believe that he was capable of taking and before he could even get started. It was just taken right out from under him. So I'm going to ask you in a moment about whether or not this injury, how it affects your view of the national league west because of course we got the news yesterday, Joe musgrove was going to be out for a long time. Maybe not a whole season, but he's going to be out for a significant period of time after suffering that broken toe. The first is running through the Dodgers options. You know, talking with rival executives about what's out there in the shortstop market. Start with this. And internal potential solution is Chris Taylor, who told reporters yesterday, you know, he's altering his throwing program a little bit. He's getting ready to play shortstop. He was a shortstop in college. He was drafted as a shortstop. He's played almost 300 games at shortstop, but if you put him in shortstop, it takes him away from what he's real value has been since he joined the Dodgers. A guy who could plug and fill a lot of different spots. So they may use Chris Taylor shortstop, but that's not something they've necessarily want to do. And you referenced last year. He had a terrible offensive year.

All right, well, today we'll be talking with the legend, the voice of the show, bookshop is going to join us and mentioned it ward out, who has some observations about it up and coming slugger in the Cardinals organization and an important but murky injury situation for the defending champions and we'll be talking with Alan Gonzalez, who's in Arizona, will digest the bad injury news that have hammered that his hammered the nationally west teams in the last couple of days. Let's start with this, a bleacher tweet from Andrew stout who says people who love sports like the pitch clock. He puts sports and quotation marks. People who love baseball hate the pitch clock, here I stand, I can do no other Andrew. Are you telling me then? That Paul goldsmith hates baseball because he likes the pitch clock. Buck showalter, you telling me he hates baseball because he likes the pitch clock Theo Epstein. You think he hates baseball? No, a lot of people in the game really love the pitch clock. I'm gonna ask boog chambi the percentage of people he's spoken with and how much they, you know, who like the pitch clock. I think it's fairly apparent early in the preseason tell it a lot of people like the pitch clock. Positive reviews all around. You really just roasted Andrew. I'm so sorry that he had to experience that, that brutal beating you just gave him. And I have so much respect for Andrew. You know, he said this is a great bleacher tweets all the time, but in this case, I just disagree. Well, as we tape the show yesterday morning, we got confirmation from a source, the Gavin Lux had suffered a terrible injury, a bad injury in the exhibition game earlier this week, the Dodgers announced yesterday that he suffered a torn ACL. He's out for the year and an emotional Lux who was going to be the Dodgers shortstop spoke of the porters yesterday. I think every baseball player's dream is to play shortstop for the Los Angeles. Los Angeles Dodgers, so yeah, I think that's one of the hardest parts. Gavin,

"lux" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"2021 it's becoming a record year for female founders So far women have raised roughly $40 billion across 2500 deals Nearly doubling the 2019 record of $24 billion And that's not it According to a recent data from pitchbook women their companies are also outperforming the market with their value rising 144% from 2020 Now I discussed in this week's unequal recovery series All of these was the focuses and how it can still continue to improve Lux capital partner Dina Shaka was here in the studio in the flesh and talking about the drive to keep on shifting and keep up this momentum I'm delighted to say for the first time in many years we've actually have some progress to report on both in terms of the number of women at the table that are writing checks into companies as well as the number of women who are founding companies and receiving venture dollars Even more we're actually seeing more exits and quicker time to exits from female founded companies And so there's some exciting news to report but there is a lot of work that remains to be done here And in some ways the numbers show sort of near doubling in terms of amount raised for female entrepreneurs But what was the tipping point do you think In some weird ways there's been the silver lining of what became of course a health crisis an economic crisis and a social crisis and this moment of reckoning that more needed to be done Well I think the pandemic across the board as you have reported about and spoken with guests about has generally been a blow for underrepresented people in general Unfortunately that has been the case for women It has especially been the case for mothers It has been the case even more so for women of color and mothers of color and intersectional individuals and communities And that really also was the case in the venture world For a period of time especially in 2020 we saw a dip in dollars that was going toward women founded companies both in terms of the actual number of dollars as well as the percentage of dollars And that was despite the fact that we are in one of the most prolific and productive periods of technological innovation and venture deal activity And I think there are many reasons that that is the case A lot of which have to do with sort of systemic issues related to both to women as well as especially to communities of color Now that is starting to change and it is not a coincidence that it is changing both on the check writing side and on the venture funded founder side because there is data that shows that women investors tend to attract female founders and vice versa There is a natural symbiosis that happens there And there is also data that shows that women founded companies perform better And that's what I really like to speak to at the end of the day because it is about the bottom line It's about performance I mean we've seen this in terms of money management many feeling that women who control money in many ways outperform because they have a different view on risk We have had these moments of great glory this year I just think of how spanx has been sending amounts of their business and of course founded by a female We've had rent the runway going public and to see a mother and her child ringing that bell together was like just such a moving moment What businesses are being founded that you're really excited about What problems are currently being fixed that you think are really notable Oh there are so many And I'm so glad you brought up the public exits and the sort of symbolism and the inspiration of those moments when I saw rent the runway and bumble and Anjali from Vimeo and really across the board It seems like almost on a weekly basis in some cases multiple times a week It is a very different view than we're used to seeing over there ring the bell And my first reaction was to go home and show my daughter That's super exciting And that's of course on the exit side On the early stage side we are seeing so much talent that's innovating in particular around areas like women's health which has been relegated by many wrongfully so to a niche category even though it's not only half the population but we're 80% of the dollars in healthcare are being spent And so that's why you've got money in Maven clinic for example This is a company that's been raising phenomenal amounts of money being able to show real growth Where do we push this forward therefore as we still see what is desperately unequal recovery as it stands where it still seems women holding back as we still have a stop start relationship with children getting safely back at school As you do still see you know the haves that have nots become more evidently clear particularly with those who have assets in those that don't How will you continue to push the balance What sort of companies are you seeking out at the moment Yeah so there is still a lot of work to be done And as I think about it for me my job as a venture capitalist I have the word capitalist in my in my title is to make money for my LPs many of whom are some of the most philanthropic institutions out there But I only do that by investing in the best founders and the best companies And that is where the data is incredibly compelling And if somebody were to arbitrage around early stage companies well they should be looking at women They should be looking at founders of color And the data shows that they outperform across the board including as I mentioned faster time to exit diverse boards have better better performance as well in terms of board members which really should start as a practice much earlier.

Wear lux's already installed in all kind of wrapped up. This is especially useful in earlier days when bucks was not stable to begin with and so being able to have that cloud environment where the users can kind of you know. Play around with locks and give us instant feedback with super useful because we didn't have to install in their machines and so once we had that we gave people surveys in. You know kind of listen to feedback on one of the things that was really useful was earlier on this intent language that i mentioned earlier. We had to do a lot of refinement based on user feedback to make that language low but more intuitive and provide better wording or guidance messages because selects works itself with just the printing that the f. with all depend on commands but this is kind of a different api or language that lexus introducing. So there's a lot of initial barrier to be able to compose those intense. So of the user feedback has helped with improving that language quite significantly as you have been working with developing the project yourself and working through these end-user studies and working with the community around it. What are some of the most overlooked or underutilized features of blocks that you think would benefit from being given more attention or that people be able to gain more value if they were aware of them. And you know maybe expose them a bit more readily one of the features that i'm really excited about. Is this idea that unlocks you can actually write a function like a small function with a particular input and output. And it would create a tab of recommendations for you and so instead of default tabs that were showing you may be a correlation or like his two grams and temporal trends and gio features like if there's a particular recommendation that you're like. Hey that kind of makes sense. I wanna see this. Whenever i'm printing out data from you can actually write your own user defined function where you can use the language that we provide to iterating through a large collection visualization and display some. Sort of getting bischoff station based on that so maybe you could take one of the examples that we gave like the tutorial was..

"There's a lot of interesting work individualization community that had specifically done research on. This people have actually done studies where they look at. What is the best practices for encoding. Let's say like your multi dimensional data with like. Maybe you have like two nominal variables as well as a categorical variable like for all these combinations of data. How do you actually best in co data. There's a rich body of work that the community has done in order to figure out what visualization we should show and so let's kinda borrowed some of that research but for data science use cases. There's also some really interesting and unique challenges and unnecessarily challenges but for the data science use case. There's some very interesting and unique digitalization. That would actually show. That hasn't really been well studied so one example this when we do a group by and than aggregation on the data frame itself becomes kind of this index of thing so the column itself is kind of indexed the index column and in that case like it doesn't really make sense to visualize the entire data firm it makes sense to visualize what you ve already computed as the aggregate alexa has a way of sort of being able to look at these data frames that are already pre similarly like you might be doing things. Pivots are for example like selecting a particular column to look at the one d series. All that looks tries to display evangelization. That has natural to the user and going back to the example that you gave which these geographic example. This is one of our latest feature luck. Swear we started thinking about like. Hey if i just had a column of data that is like all countries that's not super useful for me as like an endless. I might be able to read like five of these rows than i know. Like where the countries that are there. But wouldn't it be great if i could plot on a map and show a different perspective on the data and so a lot of these recommendation types that we started to work on in addition to the body of work that you know the existing visualization literature are you invoking is what kind of makes sense in a day designs workflow. We've looked at sort of notebooks on kaggle and get hug to see what are the typical People have imploding that are associated with these pandas commands dish libations and so being able to kind of bridge those two together in building a solution that makes sense is something that we've done with that being said. I think there's still a lot of opportunities to improve lux in improving those recommendations. Sometimes we don't necessarily always pick the best view that the user wants in exploratory analysis. There's a lot of possible objectives and tasks that people are interested in and it's very difficult to recommend the single best one. I don't think that's kind of the goal of is trying to do so.

"Visualize irs without having to you know right specific map lot low code. It makes it much easier for you to sort of be able to get these visualizations and able to understand your machine learning model in that sense. It's very similarly evaded as lux. I think a psyche yellowbird as a package. That is a lot more mature. So i think it's been around for a long time. It seems like there's a lot of adoption in this space. So it's interesting to see kind of this idea of a high level sort of visualize that is able to package some of these details away and for this case even being able to help you understand your machine learning model we're seeing adoption towards some of these and like what we talked about. We sort of see that. Digitalization ecosystem has these high level sort of Similar to yellow brick and locks as well as things like map. lot lib al-tair. Even those are kind of even considered like declarative libraries for visualizations. And then we get to things. Like the three vega which is even a level that slower than so kind of these different stratified layers interacting with your data on. I think part of the design of luck is trying to understand. Like how do you in our operate with these tools and these things that are in people's existing ecosystem like i don't think the solution is like. Hey everyone should use lux for all their data analysis. It's definitely using locks to get something that is useful and then going into your favorite digitalization Seaborn map plot live to really be able to fine tune in present that data effectively to your point about ecosystems. It's worth digging into the fact that lux is tied. At least currently two pandas in terms of being able to generate visualizations from these dataframes whereas psych it yellow brick has tied into the cycler ecosystem. And i'm just wondering if you can talk to the benefits and trade-offs and sort of the considerations that you went through as you were deciding how closely to tie yourself to the pandas ecosystem and some of the trade offs of maybe if somebody's trying to use numb pie and using some n. dimensional array and wants to be able to get some of the same benefits as lux sort of how you thought about. What the cost benefit analysis was in terms of which ecosystem is to focus on at least initially part of the motivation in kind of plugging into the pandas ecosystem. Is that the panda's data frame itself comes with so many rich functionalities. Api's for data cleaning analysis and even some plotting capabilities that kind of tied in with And so based on what we've seen most of the data scientists who are in the python ecosystem are using kind of pandas for exploratory data analysis and even across kind of data cleaning and other types of workloads. And so we kinda found that to be a very nice kind of entry point to be able to say. Hey what would it look like if we added an always on visualization display on top of Frame not being said like i think your example of the num- is definitely interesting. We haven't thought about it too much..

Let's say you're trying to generate a bar chart first of all you have to do a group by an aggravation with pandas and then you have to kind of take that resulting data frame and then math that onto graph coding. So you have to figure out. Hey why do i want to use a bar chart or scatter plot or do i want to use another chart. Encoding will colored wanna pick. So there's all these design decisions as well as data decisions that you have to make in order to get that visualization and so even though a lot of these libraries are extremely flexible. You can create these beautiful lies with within these libraries. It's a lot of work upfront. Work to even the able to write the code to generate a single visualize asian. And what we kinda see the process of having to write that code kinda discourages people from exploring their data. Exploration is one of those things. Where it's like. You could do it. You could also not do it but when you do it sometimes you find something interesting. Sometimes you don't so it's very hard to measure the value of weather. It's worth it to plot this asian and a lot of times people don't and so by making the recommendations that were displaying always on an attached to your data from so that it doesn't require any additional work to visualize. It makes it a lot easier for people to want to look at the visual views. Being said i think there's l. tear and map lot lebanon plot. The ends are still very powerful. Tools and locks itself uses lows libraries underneath the hood to generate visualization so unless has the capability of generating visualizations in al-tair and a map plot lead and for a lot of more fine grain task..

I have heard something in the gaming world and said of mvp for minimum viable product. It's minimum lovable product. Because in a game you know sometimes it's different from for example banking where you need to do certain things on the on your phone or whatever and you need to make it work like a game. There has to be an element of fund. So you can't just cut out. I will just give her the crafting system because like maybe that's the fun of the game. You know what i mean. That's hard to figure out. And i have ended up doing things. We're all tests I started something simple ahead like a running game within a few weeks. And i'm like he's combat. It really needs crafting Ended kipling adding to it. Increasing scope am actually eventually getting to a place. Where it's like the vision that i would have like might dream vision and i guess it's good that i'm doing it little by little instead of all at once but there's trade offs for that too so it's something. I'm learning i guess. How sacred is the initial game concept to you like have you. Have you know you wake up. The i have the best idea for a game ever and then you start to make it and you end up with a completely different game than you started or do you. Do you like hang tight to that original idea. I like to come up was guiding principles So for example one for me is. Is this game fun for me to play. Even though i made so. If it's not fun for me to play or made it. I think it's going to be hard for me to continue to To tell other people are gonna like it and it's gonna be hard for me to stay interested in making it so just adding sense. A sense of renovation or procedural generation some elements. I'm having different endings are different paths of the story things like that. I think that that can make it interesting for me to continue to play even as i've made it So having these principles. I think something other one would be like something that i'm actually proud of having made these are. These are may be too vague. Because i know making this game. That's really big. Because i wanted to be all these things i want to be. So it's it's hard to stick to that But as for the original vision. I did have a good concept in my head of what i wanted to be. Like a vision of what it what the game would be As for the mechanics those things. I'm super flexible on. Because i do. You want to be fine. And that's really important. And if what. I envisioned to be fun isn't fun then. I need to make changes. I don't wanna put game is no fun. Fifty fifty sure. exactly how. How how a sacred that initial vision is.

Are You Actually Kinky?
"Lately there have been some truly salacious stories on the news about powerful celebrity men who've crossed some lines with women they were dating and these have been sort of aftershocks of the metoo movement. Where these new accusations. I'm thinking of armie hammer. And the allegations of abuse and resume or marilyn manson's rape room brought back this important conversation on the ways that power and fame can be abused but the fascinating thing this time as the way. These celebrities have responded to these accusations because the reply is essentially. Oh no you don't understand. That was consensual. We are kinky kink is one of those things that's hard for people to understand myself included. Because i think for a long time i was like whatever you have your shit you do behind closed doors and that's your business. I don't really feel the need to interrogate too deeply beyond a basic sort of understanding. That shouldn't shame anyone else's kings you know and so when the internet seized on the gripping details of army hammers supposed cannibal fetish as like. Should we even be lampooning. This is this a legitimate kink. Would there be a right way to do this. But then i realize everyone was talking about. What a wild fixation this cannibalism thing supposed to be and there was much less focused on what army hammers accusers. Were actually saying about their relationship. Which was fetish or not. Their relationship started one way and then it took this turn we at the cut. Believe these women who are making these accusations and we believe that the men they were involved with are hiding behind the mantle of kink because kink isn't an excuse for abuse but in order for us to understand where the lines actually get crossed as a culture. We're going to have to engage with the ideas of kink much more fully in all of its richness and deep deep complexity. We understand that like you can be like vicariously like excited by violence even though real violence is disgusting. And you don't want to actually hurt people but it gets like framed in this way where it makes it sound like if somebody is kinky there beyond criticism and that's not what it means. This is lux traum. And i am a longtime sex educator and an abuse survivor someone who thinks a lot about abuse kink i think people think oh la king is choking people and kids like leaving bruises on people and can be but that's not really what it is so what is case. Everyone i talked to had a different way of explaining it. What keep means differs for different people will kick is a very specific subset of the arabic and it can mean a lot of things. If one feels that one is kinky then one is kinky for lux alp. Traum kink is very much about consent in a kink. Situation it might. It might look like the dam has all the power control but the real control lies with the submissive person. Because it's not the purest iteration of like safe consensual kink. Unless you can say no or say you're safe word or say whatever and make it all stop immediately. This is a very clear dividing line right for armie hammer. The women said stop and he kept going for marilyn manson. It was an entire lifestyle. Where if you said. Stop your punished more. But just like an all consensual sex kinky or not. There's a lot of nuance and negotiation. That needs to happen between the people involved. And it's all within this context of wanting to be giving there's so much pressure on you to be compliant too. Please your partner to do all these things. That has nothing to do with king but when you are in a kink environment that can like be taken to the nth degree because so much of kink about exploration about going into a known taboo terrain you have to be on the same page. There's these moments where i'm like. Oh or like. I would be surprised with the thing that i had never expressed interest in. I maybe didn't wanna do it. Don't think there is this bright dividing line between abuse and kink. All this stuff is just like there's no like three step guide for like dealing or there is but it's like talk to people have conversations like be willing it's the easiest thing in the hardest thing to hurt the ones you love to act out scenarios aren't normally like you to play with power. It's playing with fire. Really and yet culturally kink doesn't talked about with gravity until something goes horribly wrong gets whispered about as the super freaky unspeakable thing or it has a reputation of being a gonna dorky form of adult dungeons and dragons. You know like something. Couples try to spice up their marriage after reading fifty shades of grey. I think it's almost jumped straight from being arm. Something that's forbidden to being a cliche and being a joke and we skipped the part where we look at. It has to be taken just as seriously as anything else would do as humans. And i think that was part of what we were hoping to do with this analogy

"Way and then just going back to the same old shit. I do have to say one thing. If these don't go home. And look up. Discount and figure out between donna. Summer and diana ross and how dare candy say the differences that one of them is dead. I know i will like. I will throw my microphone out the window. I mean that's that's a weird threat but like honestly honestly and like it's not even like you need to know the different. It's not even you need to know every single detail honestly like for many years. I could never even place donna summer. Because she's such a chameleon like singer like her vocal chops are so incredible that she has this beautiful effortless soprano and then she can also belt and her voice is almost colorless like. I don't always think that. I don't always listen to donna. Something that has a black voice because she's such a theatrical singer. Has this beautiful full voice. And i didn't even realize that one of the songs that are super famous but she's super famous for is a duet with her and barbara streisand. If you if you really compare if you want to understand what type of singer she is. She's barbra streisand but black and only be a good like these are the. This is the level of musician. The quintessential donna. Summer song is. Of course. I feel love and like and that revolutionized disco like it before that disco was like live bands. Like you could see like like like. I love with sin heavy but you don't get any of her singing chops in i love. It's all and like so. I think people think that to who don't osama waza a vocalist and don't think about her in enough is enough doubt. Powerhouse of avoid enough is enough is enough. That's the song i was thinking that barbra streisand and okay. But also i mean the thing that the thing that i always find surprising if the donna summer is that singer who you know like her whole catalog. But you don't know that it's donna summer so like last dance which people play it. Proms and weddings and blah blah blah. You get the same kind of effortless brassiness. Andy you bambi. Like i mean and god if you if you can sit and through all of last dance and not dance and like boogie down your dead on the inside. I have to say it falls in the pug. Yes yes this is becoming some stand now. You have to standard. But also we all have to stand diana ross. She's amazing and she we invented. Diana ross is like this year of black people. She reinvented herself so many times in her sound and everything and you know and then their other stars into insult bester thank god. We had a moment faster. I just say. I thought it was really strange that the one route diana ross reference. That candy could pull out was mahogany teams like really obscure the because it's referenced so much on drag race problem like ru said like mahogany and it's been in things and not the ways something the supremes like. Yeah simone literally. Did diana ross. The week before on the runway as the bags like already. Very dana's my god. It just feels like this is what happens with like different generations of of of where people like we. We lose the reverence for the stars that people now and everyone has different a diva for every ten years. And so we're not always going to know these things. I didn't know a lot about share. I'm a black person like sorry like she wasn't all that for like mike people as i've gotten older when i look up share and i see the things that stood for and i've seen like the chameleon like nature for character. I very quickly took to share. You know and there's a share for every minute of the day you're and century so like you know. I may not have known share but i don't think that i don't think i don't think that like stopped me from being curious about chair or like understanding that i should treat her with some sort of reverence like i may have not gotten the wagon wheel with choosy reference. But i knew that it was like. That's something i should know. Damn look out. You know what i mean. They were just like dumb founded like like. I don't like i'm not a fan of punk music. But i know who the clash. Aw and i know. And i know like i make. I've looked into punk is such a movement. The i've looked into enough. That i know i don't like it but and i feel like some of the younger queens that you have in today's Drag rice who like have are only doing drag because drag race existed when they were like a child. Yeah yeah i know. And then their references or drag race references instead of the references. The drag races referencing and they have to actually close in snatch game that you can no longer do drag race contestants as your screen. A lot of these goals like to coming through like would doing their audition tapes of a drag race goals as characters. And it's like no like you need wider references. Well it's a drag is a commentary on like you know popular popular culture if you do a commentary on a commentary. There's almost nothing left to comment on. That's what happened with trixie mattel. Who paul in front every ball. That was smart. It still amazes me for drag queens to not have any idea disco is like i don't know how old you too but ira said an age where we remember drag before drag race fess stuff and like then you have to have references like you have like you you you drag queens work culture and you know that stuff so i think now in a in a post dragway world echelon of being dragged a dry clean is getting onto drag race so you study drag as a as a medium in through the lens of what do i need to do to get onto drag race right why. Which is why. Instagram is flooded with incredible drag mak- processing and like people making costumes and people making wigs. But they don't have these fundamental cultural references the required to actually be a drag queen rather than just do drag straight a did. Did anyone catch when they When they like like put audio over rupaul when we when they have to redouble report when she's like telling them what to do. Yeah yeah it was so weird. I was like all of a sudden. It was like paul. Did this skype. It was just like i was like. She's explaining the challenge but she. We explained the challenge in a completely different way. As to what was that. It was just weird. I was like What what what. What are.

Harness Light to Defeat the Winter Blues
"The winter blues can sap your energy disrupter sleep and destroy your concentration but turns out. There's a simple key a secret weapon if you will to defeating it and that's light. Welcome back to savvy psychologist. I'm your host. Dr wu and every week all help you meet. Life's challenges with evidence based research a sympathetic ear and zero judgment today. We're gonna talk about the magic of late for your mental health. Especially in the winter months winter can be beautiful time of holiday. cheer gorgeous. Snowshoes escapes and fun activities like sledding and skiing but even with all this fun. Some people can't help but experience. The winter blues their mood takes a dip in the fall and winter. Even when life is otherwise going well and for about three percent of people this mood downturn is so severe that they have something called seasonal affective disorder. They not only feel blue but they also experience loss of interest in things that they usually like unusual tiredness or sluggishness trouble sleeping a tendency to overeat and gain weight difficulty concentrating and thinking clearly and even feelings of hopelessness or sometimes even having suicidal thoughts. So why does this happen. And is there a way to beat these seasonal blues and seasonal depressive episodes. The secret might lie in light. That's right this free resource that comes from our son. Plants rely on soaking up light to make food and grow but it turns out that we animals need light to our biology is so wrapped up late. That are metabolism mood. Thinking are all affected. So here's some things to know about. Why light is important for mental health and how to harness it for better health and happiness especially in the winter months first thing to know. Is that our mood is intimately tied to light the winter blues and seasonal affective disorder. Don't just happen to people because they don't like winter. There's actually a biological reason for winter. Depression and here's a clue. The people most susceptible to winter induced depression are those living far from the equator. And that's because living. Farther away from the equator means you get even fewer daylight hours in the wintertime and because there's less daylight during fall and winter. The body's circadian rhythm gets disrupted. Late is the single most powerful factor in tuning the spotty clock and with less and less of it as we move from fall to winter the body's natural rhythms can become less robust. So that's bad news for your mood. Metabolism cognitive functioning and many other body systems that play a role in depression. It's also possible that less sunlight leads to a drop in serotonin of brain chemical that's for regulating moot. So the good news. And that's the next thing to know. Is that by artificially adding light to our lives. We can actually combat the winter blues. Numerous studies have shown that something as simple as using light box can decrease symptoms of seasonal affective disorder. Ideally you want a full spectrum light source such as the light box designed for this treatment by even a very bright ball from the hardware store can help so. The standard treatment involves using the light for about thirty minutes each morning if it has a brightness level of about ten thousand lux or for about one to two hours if it has a brightness level of twenty five hundred bucks for comparison ten thousand locks is on the low end of ambient daylight whereas an overcast. Day is about one thousand bucks to avoid hurting. Your eyes don't stare directly into the lake instead. Have it off set about thirty degrees from gays and about two feet away. You can have your breakfast check email or enjoy morning. Podcast like the savvy psychologist. Perhaps while you have your box on bright light therapy improves your mood. By regulating your circadian rhythms and increasing serotonin. What's especially great about this treatment. Is that it can be easily combined with medications or other treatments without interfering or introducing side effects. There are studies showing that bright light. Therapy can be combined with taking an antidepressant for an extra boost. Even people with year round depression. We talked already. About how bright light can improve your mood and decrease symptoms of seasonal affective disorder and also just general depression year round. Now let's talk about how it not only helps with the winter blues but also would sleep and daytime fatigue so when it comes to sleep bright light. Therapy may have an even more direct effect often. Those with depression especially seasonal depression also have later krono types meaning that they are biologically wired to want to sleep and wake later than the average person this means. They're dealing with a double whammy during winter. They have both a depressed mood and a harder time getting in the morning. Luckily doing bright light therapy first thing in the morning can help to shift night. Owls biological clocks earlier improving how they sleep at night. And how alert and refresh. They feel in the morning.

And then of course, there's the bohemian rhapsody ask bio pic version that, you know, attempts to tell the truth and often is more false than the movie that is completely fictionalized for you, which makes us successful rockstar movie in which of those do you prefer. I tend to prefer the ones that are creating this whole other world that doesn't exactly exist in in the actual music universe answer, the non bio-pic ones, which are these movies that have come out in the past year that all kind of fall into that category. Pretty much all are those sorts of movies. But those tend to be my favorites. Yeah. Why do you think? So right now, we're in this moment, and you writing a piece about this on the site this week where teen spirit is being released this week. It's maximum galas story of popstar pile fanning. A star is born last October. The one. Her smell. No, I don't wanna quit backs. Lux Brady Corbett portrait of a pop star in the aftermath of nine eleven starring Natalie Portman. The aforementioned bohemian rhapsody wire all of these movies happening right now. Do you think I really don't know? I mean, one really interesting parallel that I put it out to you earlier is that each of those movies, I guess with the exception of her smell sort of are directed by male actors like people that we primarily identifies actors before directors. So that that is just interesting to me in general of of people like they seem to be wanting to say something about performance and stardom, but through the proxy of generally younger or more famous woman, and that's just a very strange parallel that I'm not sure what's going on there. But I think there's a sense right now with social media that sort of anyone can become a pop star. I mean, we. To crossover into the music field week. I will not ex- right now who this viral star who just has the number one song in America overnight sensation because he was able to use social media into becoming famous. So I think there's this sense right now that pop stardom is easier to achieve and and that if you have a certain idea or machinery behind you that you can just not your fingers and become a pop star. I do not think it's that easy. And that's the issue. I have with some of these movies and the way that they conceive of twenty-first-century pop cultural stardom, but I do think there's that sense that if anyone can become a pop star on the internet, then so can Natalie Portman are we can imagine her in that role or L fanning or something like that? There's this almost anyone can do it notion in the air right now that I think is contributing something to this. You know, we're gonna talk about some of our favorite. Versions of these kinds of movies. I think we should say that for the most part the bio pic more so than the original story tends to be more successful and the massive success of bohemian rhapsody, which is I would say an abnormality. But also indicative of kind of where music movies may be going. I think sets aside the fact that like there's something kind of dull and bland and Oscar is about the bio pic in the original story. I feel like creates a whole new world of creation for us. You know, what are some of your favorites from that John rea-? I mean, I have a very long. A couple. Yeah. The first one will I kinda was thinking in terms of these movies that have come out recently almost each of them. I sort of had in mind, oh, I like X movie from the past better, and in thinking of vox lox, I was comparing it a lot to Todd Haynes velvet goldmine.
