Yewande Komolafe's Nigerian Kitchen
"Right now it's my interview with your. Juande LAFI. She's a chef. Recipe developer, also a food stylist who grew up in Nigeria and now lives in Brooklyn. A recent feature for the New York Times. Come Lafi collected her ten essential Nigerian recipes. She's also the creator of the Dinner Series My immigrant food is which she runs out of her own kitchen. You one day welcome to milk street. Thank you for having me. Let's talk about like us for a second. Could you just give us a walking tour? What does it look like? Where do you see on? The street is a street food. Just give us a sense of the place it's it's a bustling city. It's colorful. It's crowded. There's traffic. There's all kinds of smells coming from the street food there's. A street puffer and ensue. Use the. Grill. Grill beef or goat. Puff puff is the fried dough, but yeah, it's it's very much alive. It's very colorful and actually I I live in Brooklyn right now and live in new. York and that's one of the things drew me to New York has has the city felt alive in the same way that Laos does. If if you and I cooked together, we what are some of the things would learn from you. I think the layering of flavors and spices is. Something that sticks out to me about Nigerian food. It could seem like a lot going on, but they all play very well together and. When it hits your palate, it doesn't overwhelm your palate and I think that in itself is a very specific technique that you can add smoked fish and. Little dried crayfish and you can add Lucas being all of which are really heavy flavors on their own, but you could add it to one dish. It doesn't overwhelm the dish anyway. They all just kind of play well together so I think that the the style in which the flavors are layered. Is a very specific thing. you mentioned in the piece near? Times you had some essential recipes, you talk about the white bread. That was surprising to me because it sounded like kind of wonderful something I mean it is kind of like wonderful. So what's the story with that? I mean so. I gave bread. The name to me is in itself a story, so the name comes from this huge bakery that existed in a very particular part of legos called Ikey, and it was everywhere growing up it was you know it? It would come to your house. House, actually because people would hawk it on the street, and I remember it being just so tender and soft, and it's it's kind of like wonder bread, but it wasn't sliced, and so to get it slice with like a special thing, and I think it's also really heavy because it, it's used as a vehicle for a lot of our soups and stews into that memory to me that like it's this big hunk of read. That's like really heavy just sticks out to me your dinner series. My immigrant food is tell us about the. So my dentist series is something that came out of My desire to explore my cuisine I had always cooked in restaurants I'd never really cooked Nigerian food, and so dinners gave me an opportunity to cook and share Nigerian food, and also tell the story of my immigration story, but also share the story of Other people who have immigrated to this country, so what is your immigrants or in other words? If you were to summarize, which is impossible, the nature of that story? What what is that story? A very condensed version is I I feel like I've always been an immigrant i. was born in Berlin moved back to Lagos with my parents, and my family moved to the US at sixteen to go to college and I've been in the US ever since, but also within that time I lost my. Student status here and stayed on without paperwork, and so I lived here undocumented for about ten years, and so in that time I wasn't able to go back to Nigeria, and now I am I got married, and they've been able to go back to Nigeria and so the dinner started out of a desire to be close to a place where I felt distance from.

"We'll be looking at covered. Nineteen oil price and the Nigerian economy and to go along in discussion with me and help make sense of the direction in which we're going We have Wilson is senior economist with the Curia Economic Summit. Welcome thank you. It's a blizzard. Now please introduce yourself Mr Tillis a little bit more about yourself. My knees will in remember. An economist currently work as an economist with Journey Economic Summit Group where I get to do research on. Also engage in policy advocates. So it's not just about researching them but it goes about seeing how we can engage government to implement the recommended Sean. Style we put forward. And that's basically what I did. A Soviet this global pandemic has defined twenty twenty and Nigeria is no exception. What is your opinion on? Its impact on the economy so far. So it's unfortunate that the world is going through this right now grew You know the Coronado virus situation. He's not being funny. Series of Google Shutdown Donald factories. Shut Down Post We've also had an increasing number of cases you know from on China moving over to the United States equally on Europe in general even here in Africa across all different continent. So it's not been an easy one so the number of dead cases out of also increased as well but on the economic side on coming back home here in Nigeria. We've seen how festival so they are different of several transmission mechanism. So do one of them is the price channel where we've seen how demand for could drop significantly physically driven by low low industrial activities. Even people aren't even going out so they lure demand for transport services Which means that based on for fuel? So we've seen cases where KUDA advice features the beat features even wins into a negative so people were actively paying to sell the crude Brains We've seen the drug prices to below twenty dollars per barrel. So that's one key. Effect on also worrisome. I made you couldn't even point. So it's crude because his Such retail with so much put from different places different continent different countries. Saudi Arabia Russia's to you know going on with these war who controlled the market so that creates a lot of uncertainty and outlook for the price of crude which we all knew that It's a major to tell me. Not How would home because who those who? Who Do. I need surprise? Oats to also have accused in relation to grow now reserves Fake thing go. Men's revenue and also can boost in external an exports earnings. So the woman days that drove a significant drop in crude oil project. What we're experiencing it means go. Mint will not be able to meet its financial obligations so things like team salaries which are very important to of things that Keno costs to keep the government running things like infrastructure investment in education healthcare spending unlivable would be severely affected as a result of the decline include a price so that was one effects off the virus pandemic on on major out. And we all know that. Didn't they drink on every dependent on government last recession you? What dresses dot point? One days trouble. We'd Goldman finances that direct linkages into the system of course demand going down ability to meet for an exchange needs becomes Richard Grind fixed on our reserves of approaching five dollars. Fallen significantly on this is made was that we don't have adequate savings fiscal bofors because this this is what countries rely on this point in time to see if we can't get rid of and you only need to drive into saving but right now we're GonNa have got so it's a gesture switch on major. It's not an easy one and a lot of a lot of things of ancient would need to go on what we do now because projections. I've said that the recession is inevitable. We come up way so the question then is what is the how come show that. We don't get to the bottom economic depression new and show that we even if we get into research on become come back because he's just a word it's deficts lives and people who are jobs prizes. We'll go up the poll. Become for many people would fall below the poverty line so these are some of the reality. Is that likely to come on onboard going into next year? So that's one. Tim Buck of price on that. Transmission Magnesium is the fact that cinch off and on trade. He's also been disrupted movement. You know challenges and the global supply chain. So there's an overall materials on this show groups that need to be used in production of what I would also be affected especially when many of the global economy is experiencing lockdown economic activities so? I know that Chanel is through the local disruption intensive Destroy activities locally in Niger. Due to look into restriction so that in itself is a very big space that would also planned in parks and we can imagine for almost a month. We've not read it much economics to c.s in my GDP particularly for you on these continues into it took me June so what if you compared to? Gdp growth egos was that we claim to be lower than what we had by this time last year. So that's an eight. Direct hits on economic activities even do Production of essential temp like food drugs on cool but non-essential also very key down. These needs me to the impact on some sectors so far east on the manufacturing sector. Would you want to do it? Because as much respect for the other sectors within during that fall within the enormous I shall read. That's locked fates cement funding loved the older non-essential sickle sub sectors within the manufacturing sector few grocery goes factor and say coins in nineteen grew by just zero point two percent from two point one percents in twentieth. So that tells you that already you experience in decline so these kind of shock to the system much more declaim talks won't key six also come additional one hundred thirty entertainment and recreation. Saito would be heat So tells you restaurants on it basically places. We have gatherings of people events of one on one key areas that are affected by these. Look down that Saito would be obscene. Li La down what we had last year on undertake construction sector. So we've had a case way Because Structure Signal always relies heavily on government spending. So if you look at the jets let one dedicated to capital spending close to over to treat with being. Shall we D- falling oil prices to review the Govan. How to read either budgets to using the bench Bockel Fizi da Barra even with that. And still you know STU opinions going around that that's unit so We may not have any projections because he's not just oil time also annoying so if the economy's on found a major commitment to these you know try to be mean to spray the requires without also means one. I- revenue companies and install commentary so we would also let me see declaiming noyer so that's over of course without fixed construction and even right now the the main focus has been to contain the spread of the buyers. If you notice most of the government's batsmen Goldman spending than channel to hell and some of the sectors. So what are we talking about roots structure on a really apple so to construct contact though would definitely be be hard heats sectors so there's also transport take the transportation movement of goods four segments to real road and see dressing. The transportation was actually the fastest growing thing Clinton in nineteen. I see deep so this time. It's the hot heat. Because the restrictions on the movement is either was one of the best sectors valid affected. Even so it'd be lots of so we would probably have naked down declining. Good enough transports sector across all the different categories so from the air transports to transport a real transport so also social services sector so you have education on our very key. Sick does that. I think that's a result of of the lockdown for education show downloads to and that in itself tells.

"For Disease Control the NCDC as well as other authorities who have a specific practices in Kobe. Carbon Copied Nineteen Now social distancing and other precautions Also in the mix. So why do we need made in Nigeria Solutions Thanks thanks for having US. Social distance in as walks in part because the the government shutdown. And you know bothers movement in Lagos Ogun Abu However you know keeping a distance from each other working from relying on your safety net these measures which advised by. Who you know against the coronavirus pandemic made for parts of the war. That cannot afford to retreat in individualism for millions of people in cities. Like Lagos and Kano. There's no such thing as You know social distancing yourself many in those for almost a month now legos. You know some are privileged enough to stop the panthers who had loss of You know hand sanitizers wipes facemasks food and basic needs but many others rely on d today and in for them to be able to provide for themselves now. These safety nets have not been readily available in Nigeria. The government you know in these states and the federal government have been doing their bit but there's the comments on histories now people say Hong Kong Alvar. You know the land mass of Lagos is unbelievable. Small landmass with a lot of people teen to twenty million people depending on where you are. If New York you know never sleeps because the lights are always on Lagos never sued. Because there's no power most times because you know man people stay outdoors to get some air some so that they don't choke down. Wendy are getting some air you know. A lot of things can happen. You know. Illegals relies on a lot of informal economy. It's the economic capital of Nigeria. Was still you know. It's the informal economic capital of West. Yes because mining curious street might manicures. You know it's very novel is nothing you'll find all about. This is how these people survive and these people the ones who houses leaving communities where forty people or more share building share a bathroom you know. So how do you social distance from that? It's different from what it is all about the world that is why you know we need to look inward. I look at our own peculiar challenges to solve our own problems and You know you know. The government has been trying to the state government who look at things from a holistic manner. Which is what we've been clamoring for for years and years. The local governments need to be powered by themselves. Because it is true. You know local governments that we can get primary healthcare now. We get a lot of things happening for people in their words in the zones. You know that is why we need made in nine hundred solutions. You know I can continue to speak. Speak about many things that you know you know. We need to do but think about it. Even beyond the people that live in penury Two weeks coronavirus case was confirmed in Lagos doctors in the AFC. Booja announced that they were going on strike. Overwhelmed compete salaries. Those are doctors. The people you know part of the Tri Stat supposed to help stop the spread of the Earth. You know in it's it's it's just very baffling and what we must do. Now is crafty innovative solutions based on our own unique similarities. And this not mean that we have one solution for the whole country. We simply need to make these solutions graduate solutions in densely populated passively must differ from the suburbs dissolution from Alabama's differ from you know scanty islands in Nagoya. We Need Solutions. That are based on local challenges of the people set in places. I haven't had cases you know. Pat Glennon Yanagawa. If people live on an island and then you you stop them from traveling. Mainland to get resources Dandy will look for other ways that we can cost the spread if there is a case amongst them so we must envisioned solutions for win was also invasion could solution for win coronavirus spikes because according to some experts above the NCDC and Lagos officials. We haven't reached that peak yet. So at that point we must plan for it on That is why we need. Maybe Niger solutions because men for example even in Lagos right. Now you're looking at places like but agree yes. There are no cases in fire. We buy in. We look when we talk me goes we. Oh we just think maybe the metro yeah places like the you know the mainland Ikeja Nasty like that. But I'll expect that somewhere like but agree Those who who are four years I jog by be locked down. Saturday doesn't get there and then they will find a way to ensure that you know their life can continue their but within that space absolutely should be solutions. Need to be designed for each part of and that's why you know If a practice true federalism you would help us really Solve problems for people where they are rather than trying to use uniform solutions or national solutions to solve local problems. Which is what has pulled us back over here so maybe now we can start. You know doing those anything's set in short term. You know reforms on medium-term reforms for us to achieve what we need to do as it totally. Now as my giresse foremost think-tank. That's you guys. At the end she What are some of the things that you are doing to make these This happened that is You know looking for 'em local solutions to some of these challenges there be any issue works across twelve policy commissions for the five mighty and three communities of practice. I knew sound like a lot of numbers and a lot of decisions. What these things through. All Saito's economy from agriculture to human capital and think about it. Agriculture has been very effective because a lot of people have had to be at home but even in upper parts of the country where a lot of agricultural things are happening. These people simply produce that he can ship to larger cities and their businesses have been affected profits. We are affected. You know roadblocks on the road and everything happened on. The road has made some of your produce. You Know Rothfusz stop you know before getting into the market you know A friend of mine told me about you. Know Market Women. The cheese she went to the market as a kid has an essential service and provide and salt trucks and trucks on carts of Rotten fruit being thrown away and she was conversation with me and said why can't do things be given out to the people before they you know. So these are ways that we can Solve those problems. As as as a government we are not the government you know at the NASD beyond what we're doing You know it's In many many angles across these sectors that I mentioned currently advocating for short-term media long-term policies that will aid survival of Nigerians. Our modern surviving. That will help them. Thrive through short term. Because you know currently as coronavirus you know then medium-term plant and long-term plan so we're having discussions which will you know Coming to you know would unravel in the near future beyond policies. We have sport several piracy of players to make generous contributions to was a public private partnership to flatten the curve. resources that are now being used to us this current and looming challenges of the future and also it is important to note that Dylan pandemic you know It's quite different from Wendy Spanish flu was there. Or you know all of the other pandemics of the past this different way enabled by technologies time so therefore to tackle the pandemic the as you supported you know eventers platform firm foundations practice of strange which is getting young. You know vibrant innovators to come up with solutions solutions. That can help us solve the challenges of this novel virus. You know. Many of them came on board you. You'll be amazed about many ideas that are people. Are you know the way that you know? Young Nigerians one to execute and change future able to Help if you seven of them one of them imagine what they create novell solution based on technology duck and help contact tracing things that have been adopted by certain state governments now and people are using it to trace context people that are had devised tracing contacts around there. But what are we doing down to use innovative solutions? And these things were created by grown solution so this is very critical is vital. And don't forget when we get through this pandemic which we will. This solutions will not just go today. They'll continue to you. Know Nacho them and use them for all the challenges that confront us in the future so this is the way that we can create made. Niger.

And we'll be looking at covered. Nineteen and Nigeria's socio economic outlook. It's going to be a five part series and we're going to be looking at the implications of what the pandemic is having might have a will have on the Nigerian economy medium short and long term. And to do this with us so we have a definite at the end. Of course somebody from Deny Jira economics group the G We be having that conversation and going into all of that. is Allying cut in your love. Good Day Sir and welcome. Thanks for having me It's a privilege to be here My time mentioned that You're the first to right the first time. So all right so Kudos to be congratulations to certain. Put myself on the back here. That's it right so Part one of the series is what you're listening to today and we're going to go straight into it so I'll ask the questions and he will answer we'll rent a little bit so here goes You Walk at the economic. Think tank The G since Nineteen ninety-three setup Doing some good things Since then What effect has coordinated hat on businesses livelihood and The German economy Thanks for having me once again. I think it has had a gruelling effect. You know on every single one of us Covy nineteen in modern two hundred and thirty countries and you know The world is A global market. Now it's a it's a neighborhood you know when you cross over to anywhere. Globalization has opened up the world and it has also allowed the covert dynasty and spread. What is nothing to really panic about? Because if you read history you'll go back and you find out that there have been many pandemics down here and the world always recovers and you know they say you know if you go in the fire you know. That's when it comes out so I'm sure that we recovered. There's no need to panic. However it's been grueling on the livelihood of everybody you know everybody is taking hard ninety has about two hundred million people and You know the federal government officially our showdown Leaguers Abu John Ogun state but if you realize those are the nerve centres of the country and also some state governors have followed suit to you know to shut down their own stakes just to protect the people because we all know that our health care system is in the best of the best way to do. It is to use policies to keep them people at home to protect them. You know But wanting to notice that Korea virus affects different countries. In different ways. You know Famous New York City's shutdown because health is in you know paramount before for nine. June's this quite different Everyone are on what has employed social distance in because he many of these western countries Have people most people have houses to go to buddies quite different here We have two hundred million people. The president on Sunday announced that You know some politics safety nets provided to two point. Eight million households but According to Niger statistics we have at least eighteen. Million poor people very poor people in the country. We have forty. We have forty million unemployed or on the employees people so two point eight million. Six people bars. Would you know about twelve thirteen about eighteen? Million People that the program will reach which means that there's a dearth of of of You know challenges that would confront us and it's it's not insurmountable but we would have to all come together and use something that we refer to as it trident to tackle this to tackle this challenge. Now explain that well Nigeria has is heavily reliant on the on the oil sector you know the honest contribution to GDP and the oil prices have dropped significantly to have effects on the economy and also on foreign direct investment because investors. Aren't you travel around the world and looking for opportunities right now everyone is trying to shore up? Who would have great effects on on our economy but the good thing also that helps us at this moment because is that our country is a has a huge informal economy as well you know not just the the guys will it means that doubt would also help us but sometimes the infamous economies is is hard to measure. What because of that? That's why I'm so upset mystic that we will bounce back bought. You know you would have serious serious effects on the formal. You know Economy why that is that Just think think about the Trident people say medical is the most important thing but The medics only three people that that are ill but the the also important in Detroit so number one is the medical efficiency number two is governance and number three is communication right dot trident is needs to. I read that to try and expand the other one in a bit. So I tried interviews in you know medical efficiency which Let's be honest. We do not really have bought through governance. In in this time we've been able to to Repack IN LAGOS STATE. You know And some other states. The state governors stepped up To to create Isolation centers in partnership with private. Sudas help so that. Trident of Medicare efficiency. Governors communication is what What determines how could. Ninety-nine affects every country of this world for example The number of cases occur virus in Germany is as high almost as high as spins but far less up people have died which is because the US destroyed and of medical efficiency. We all know what we call Germans. German machines machine yes. They've used exceptional government. I'm most importantly communication so when he social distance state whom Depending on who should stay at home. How people should get their resources how people should interact are people should commute. How the markets you walk out the essential services should walk solo. These trident is very important. I'm I'm I believe that If we get it right of course we are you know. At than economy on a state body if we get it right to to a certain level we will be able to. You know you know Solve our problems and covered nine hundred problems in our community at the moment. Now what does the other tried and against the nineteen the Audit Trident is Barbaro? Meet much it. Hit About Twenty eight twenty five which means that. The government cannot fund to telephones this process so the other trend is the is the funding. We all know business works with funding. Nothing works without funding so the Trident is the government which is the federal state and local government funding the efforts. The second is something. I would like to comment which is where the NASD operates which is Private sector organized and informal private sector use as the second part of the Trident and third the international community So the privates stepped up massively. I'm sure many of us in the in the cities I've heard about you know so much money that the privates have donated to us this 'cause you know the government to I spoke fifty nets died. The government put in place what the international community is important in helping us with medical efficiency. You know I mentioned earlier that You know without that efficiency. We can't do anything some weeks ago. Some Ferrari that some Chinese people came into nine Jonah. Treating people became to train people But if you notice the European Union the Dutch empty these people have been donating you know finances. Resources achieve maximum efficient. Whatever it is we are doing a wanted to To be rid of this pandemic what should be our priorities against Kobe? Nineteen at this time but we have to utilize bottom tridents to to tackle. A few of our priorities are mentioned. The you know the parodies Shortly but I'd like to mention Something quickly it is the fact that You know in in Lagos about six million people live on incomes largely on a daily basis. You know any represents millions of families who can only start buying making meals you know when the primary breadwinner gets home every day and the breadwinner has not been able to go out so you know number one. Is You know..
An Open Source Economy of Abundance with Marcin Jakubowski
"Hello everybody Vince Horn here for another episode of Buddhist Geeks and today I am very very delighted to be having a conversation with Martian Jukovski. Good to have you on the show Martin and thank you so much for taking the time to chat with the Buddhist geeks. I'm really excited about this conversation. Because so much of what you're doing. Feel a resonance with but it's also different from what we're doing here Buddhist excited Dick's where the intersections excellent. So let's dive right in. Okay I've got my bathing suit on and I'm ready to go seven Fahrenheit and sweet Maysville Missouri. But I'll join metaphorically awesome are you. Are you at the factory farm right now yes. That's the Kansas City area. Okay cool and I and I understand that. You have also google fiber out there. Oh and that's an addition since about a year now and that's why we can have this conversation hopefully seamlessly today. Yeah no mood. That's a big game changer fiber. We spent the money on a week. We got the pipes run here. Trenched bury them and the whole facility with Up to four GIG. Wow that's awesome. See if you're kind of you're living the dream for me. Which is you've got high-speed gig multi gigabit Internet and you're out on a farm building Chit Really Cool. I'm excited to talk about your work so so I saw. I saw your tedtalk a number of years ago. Odds probably about ten years or so ago now Something like that and and just immediately was like okay this person and your partner Katharina. Y'All are doing really interesting work with the open source ecology movement and In that talk you spoke about the global construction kit which you know. Last time I checked this is like a fifty fifty or so different items that you're looking to build open source that the kind of you would be necessary for human civilization to To to this global village construction set fifty industrial machines to create small-scale civilization with modern comforts essentially the critical machines from tractors bread ovens production equipment energy equipment and and Carson everything. You need to create infrastructure. That's the basis of thriving than so we can talk about then getting meditative but you have to provide some basic needs. I yeah you can't you can't just Meditate without without some basic needs Yogis the the people they had their comfortable caves and flame. That's right that's right. Yeah and some nettles to eat right and and and you're going to see the vision that you'll have is is going well beyond that. I mean you're talking about being able to replicate modern comforts without having to rely so much on the sort of centralized modern systems that we've all come kind of dependent on. Yeah exactly the idea is. Let's distribute the economy. So right now we're in a state of centralization but the fund that by fundamental design we have a distributed world and I think that comes from the first principle of energy energy is distributed. Solar Energy is distributed. That's pretty much where all the power for today's economy comes from. It's from the sun right so by nature. We have a distributed system but the way we created we kind of reformulated as humans isn't into a hugely centralized one so to get back to more in touch with those principles of distribution decentralisation that gives power to everybody literally and metaphorically to tell me more about like the journey that you've been on with the global village construction set because I saw you've you've made a tremendous amount of progress on that front. You know it's one thing to hear someone give a Ted talk about about something that's like an inspiring idea prototypes. It's another to see your ten years later. Like have made real progress on the stuff again to hear about that. Yeah definitely maybe you know you can say at the time of Ted Talk. Were a few percent down right now. I would quantify it as like one third done so we've got hundreds of prototypes Twenty or thirty unique prototypes everything from tractors to CNC machines. Three D. PRINTERS HOUSES. Akwa punit greenhouses. In fact we actually added the house as a critical machine since we kinda thought well. That's a living machine. Actually belongs in the global village construction set but the power is yet getting a comprehensive said along a construction setup route. So we're looking at it more as building blocks and to derive from how Lennox Open source. Software has there is one of the keys to success was large modular break down into very small parts can have thousands of people working on at the same time. And that's exactly what we do with hardware breaking down into modules and development steps for each module sewer inching along at the time of the Ted. Talk I kind of felt like I missed my great opportunity because I had so many people contact me. And all of that and we didn't have an organization. We hardly have an organization right now. We really don't yet. Were not at that level of having a business so to say like a real solid organism. But we do have a lot of foundational work. I think we are. I would call ourselves an exponential organizations laying a solid foundation with all the prototyping that we have done now ready to to convert that to economic impact so transitioning from the Playing prototyping to to the to the next step which a lot of open source Projects Forget and that is a product. So what what are the products that we can offer that anymore? Anyone can use okay. That's cool. I mean it's interesting. I'm thinking back to win. I got even more kind of interested in Y'all's work and I think at a certain point I started to really feel this kind of poll to be sort of subtract myself out ourselves out of the sort of capitalist system a bit more to be able to offer meditation teaching more freely. You know to be little less dependent on a pay for service model and you know one of the big questions that comes up is like okay. We'll around like housing costs. And how do you? How do you reduce your cost like housing is like one of the major costs and you all were some of the only people that were talking about being able to build an an ecologically sustainable you know house for like twenty five grand? Yeah and that's unheard of you not to be able to hit those kind of Knows numbers and that's what I think is really interesting about what what you're trying to do is you're really setting a goal of kind of price reduction that really competes with the capitalist markets on their own terms in a way. That's hard for them to be. It'd be hard if you're actually able to pull this off for companies to To to have any response to tenth the Price House or tractor or brick press or all the things that you're building. Yeah that's exactly right so let's dive into. There's actually a very interesting page like when I look at the WIKKI statistics. There's a page on our wicky open source ecology that org slash wicky which has cost of living. And you said it. The number one cost of living is housing on average. I have some stats here in. Its sixty eight hundred dollars a year. Then the second one is your car. Thirty four hundred dollars a year and then food twenty six hundred dollars a year and yet it adds up to about twenty thousand or so. Just let's see the the number actually is twenty thousand per year per person according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics for a household doesn't sound too bad but Ideas let's so let's go for example to the CDC home just to show you like a very tangible example so in a CD go home. You mentioned twenty five thousand dollars okay. But where's the Labor that's materials so the model there is a client? Pays probably like ten thousand dollars service fee. We host a workshop where we swarm on the build with about fifty or so people and build that in five days and I think that the more like a turnkey cost to the client. We more like seventy thousand. That's kind of what if we if you'd actually start full cost accounting like the twenty five thousand dollars as materials. Yes so you'd have to figure out how to do it but we did with a swarm based build the idea there is you are providing an immersion education. So basically you're selling inexperienced. People participate in get a lot of skills have a lot of fun shatter some of the limits in their mind about what's possible in terms of effective building using very collaborative learning rich learning environment. That's very supportive. So that's the product we're trying to develop and probably if you look at economics probably like seventy thousand dollars for a a house builder a basically the House. The person who wants to have the house before fourteen hundred square foot house so still about was Chris in the cost of industry standards. Right we actually roll this out. So there's a whole organization to behind it and sell. That's kind of how it looks right now. Now of course if you're a skilled guy and you've got a family that can build that while you're not gonna be able to do it in five days but over a month he can take our modular construction methods because everything in the system is designed to be handled by people not not example cranes or large machines the way we designed modular construction method lends itself to a swarm belt with normal people and really reducing the skill set by essentially trying to turn this into. Lagos as much as possible That's interesting and and from what I gathered like everything that you're doing the documentation around the processes like everything is part of the open source model like everything is shared shared. Absolutely everything. There's two levels so one is design seconds. Dente price design. And that's that this is where we talk about the concept of distributive enterprise. Yes the idea if we do it. And it's good for the world. Everyone can use it and and people in modern society. People think that you have to be proprietary or you have to have a competitive advantage based on Ip Order to win here are competitive. Advantage or collaborative advantage is the the opposite. Is the fact that we're collaborating? And if you think about it you're in kindergarten you'd understand because at that point we kinda were talked to to Cher but from High School Into College. Johnny were completely taught the opposite and right now. There's a huge cultural barrier that prevents people from comprehending that. Hey we can actually do. More together. Annihilate the AB- the material scarcity issues that are still central to life in the west end in the developing
Activists push for the release of vulnerable inmates from prisons amid Coronavirus concerns
"For the first time an inmate in California's prison system has tested positive for carbon nineteen five prison workers around the state have also tested positive none at the same institution as the inmate keeping the corona virus pandemic under control require social distancing and individual sanitation that are hard to accomplish in prison earlier today KQED's Marisa Lagos spoke with Scott Kernan the former chief of the California department of corrections and rehabilitation she asked current and what needs to be done to protect prisoners from a massive virus outbreak well I think it's inevitable given you know the extent of the virus across the world I think it's it's inevitable that it's going to take off in the presence of Saddam if you think you have ships are Petri dish that prisons are even more so than mass humanities so I'm you know very concerned about my colleagues in the inmates and their families jails and prisons across the country yeah I mean we know particularly in California our prisons are overcrowded there at about hundred and thirty percent of capacity I we've seen some civil rights groups I make some pretty strong calls for more than a week for the governor can to consider releasing people who already have release dates in the coming weeks and months they've also like to see people who are older than sixty five or medically vulnerable get released do you support these types of efforts well I I think they should you know Dennis if you're not overreacting and reacting to the extent of the crisis I think they ought to be looking at all options to reduce density nine inch your point about a hundred thirty percent of our product well that's true in the overall system in the prisons including a women's prisons for example are are upwards of a hundred fifty hundred sixty percent overcrowded you mentioned you know the facts that we have program suspended in jails you know if people are limited and movements even if they're not infected because they're trying to to make sure that people don't spread this what kind of safety and mental health concerns do you have because if we're looking at extended periods of these kind of walk downs we see riots or other of people there's no doubt that the potential for unrest as there is people are not confined to the course without control we know that across the system in the inmates are talking about on rafts we've seen some tangible evidence of the inmates not going to find for a medical officials in our jails after sex because they don't want to be quarantined it is a complex system what about more broadly than that the medical system in the inadequate medical care was the reason essentially that the court stepped in and and including the Supreme Court we have made some strides in that area but how confident are you that our prison medical system can handle an onslaught of these case as well you know I I I think we have some of the best correctional medical and mental health professionals in the country that may be a little biased from experience it's not given to any given day there to stress to the Max to provide court required services to the population I just got to believe that as a system progresses that they're going to be even stressed to the Max yeah we hear about hospitals and you know potentially over one well in a lot of inmates thousands in fact go out for for their medical care into to our hospitals so there's there's some logistical issues that are going on all of these jails and prisons including she she are that are that are very worst that's former CDC are director Scott Kernan speaking with KQED's Marisa

California moves up primary, wants bigger impact 2020 vote
"So California wanted to be more relevant in the democratic nominating committee process and they've moved their primary up right so now we're gonna be voting on Tuesday on super Tuesday for the first time instead of in June what sort of impact is gonna have on the racetrack let's start with you well I think a lot of people are just thrilled to California's if relevant this year more so than if we had our primary in June which is where used to be you know that the nomination is still up for grabs in California has four hundred fifteen delegates up for grabs in particular that's that's gonna have a big impact the problem with California's it's so expensive you know to campaign here and so we've seen the candidates come here raise money but not too many of them have really been here campaigning except for like very recently and so they're they're spending time in Texas and other places where there can they can be on television for less money no and I think another reason was moved up is perhaps to help California candidates like Kamala Harris and perhaps Eric Swalwell they dropped out and so you have to say that you know in in I think if Eskom Herskovitz help make California more relevant she would say no and there are a couple pulls out this week that show that Bernie Sanders certainly has the lead among likely democratic voters here in California it can anyone take that away from him or is it just has to win at this time I mean look after twenty sixteen we don't make predictions on an X. ray I think that it would be very surprising if anyone were to beat Bernie Sanders however as you said it was with Warren is in second and not change research KQED poll she certainly stands if those numbers are right to pick up some delegates which could help her momentum a lot of people who have gotten their vote by mail ballot sixteen million were sent out or holding on to them way later than they have in years past including if you look at people who analyze this like Paul Mitchell says that that includes people who are very consistent voters so it's not as if it's just like people about their ballots and maybe they're not gonna turn them and it does seem like they've been waiting to see these debates to seem about it to see South Carolina so I do think that Joe Biden you know what happens in South Carolina could really help him stay in this race I think if you're Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren or Joe Biden you might hope that the other candidates are cold and it comes at a two or three way race after super Tuesday but there's still a lot up in the air at this point the big question too is can't other how many other candidates are gonna hit that fifteen percent threshold because in order to get any delegates in a congressional district or statewide you have to get fifteen percent so the more that Bernie Sanders gets the less of the pie there is for the other candidates to divide up so you could have a situation where Bernie Sanders if he reaches forty five fifty percent of the vote no one else reaches fifteen percent that would be a huge win for him but I mean everything because it is absolutely right in terms of how hard it is to campaign her expensive it is but let's be clear it's February you know Mar almost March third there months ago well but also like if if this is the primary was happening in June in California this nomination be locked up so we are relevant we do matter we just don't get the same attention they get in Iowa New Hampshire South Carolina because there's four forty million of it all the more relevant because were earlier absolutely and I think that you know you're seeing in terms of both the attention we're getting from the candidates but also just from the national media for once let's turn a little bit and talk about property can you tell me a little bit about what this will do and what's significant about research yes this is a measure that's kind of been talked about for a long time in San Francisco it would essentially penalize folks who own properties that keep about street level vacant storefronts are talking about commercial properties and this is really been a problem in neighborhoods including North Beach are are we are other commercial corridors it's interesting because this is one of those things that I think you know some property owners aren't too happy about the ideas you get taxed if you leave it vacant if you fill it you're okay you don't have that tax the money that would be raised would go to small businesses you know people against it say why are you making it even harder retails already suffering but I think what's interesting is you look at who's lined up on in support of it and the town that doesn't agree on much the mayor is on board the more progressive supervisors us poorer the chronicle endorsed it it's less controversial than I would have expected and is this Scott because of the flight that we're seeing with I think so and you know I just friends just anecdotally when I talk to people who have been in that place for many many many years harvest market on on Market Street for example they were there thirty years and the rent got doubled and that's storefront is still vacant it was over a year and a half ago and so what happens is you get homeless people you get blight it's better to send a looks bad this less inviting to people want to go shop on that blocker in that neighborhood and so you know I think that there's just a concern that it's it's are these languages being greedy waiting for a big chain store to command or a bank or something like that who can afford these top dollar rents and what's even in that that's the case let's make him pay something for you know for that sort of work it out it's a small business and enterprise yeah right right so we do have South Carolina coming up and so talking about South Carolina Joe Biden certainly has to win in this state from everything he said really do you think there's any chart for him if he does not win South Carolina can he move forward he really needs to do well I mean he has said very categorically I'm going to win South Carolina and you know he needs that moment it's a first of all he's been staking problems chips on South Carolina show the African American vote is going to be really a firewall for him and then going into super Tuesday that would give momentum to some of the other states like Alabama Tennessee Texas you know where they're more African American voters and I you know if he comes in second or just barely wins in South Carolina just be more consternation and anxiety among the democratic insiders like but I think maybe some pressure for him to get out but that's gonna it's gonna be a tough call but if he does really well it could sling shot him into super Tuesday that really well means winning it doesn't seem coming in one close by a double digit margin I think that that is the key here he has to not only win but win big and he has to really show that he has that support from the African American community and I think other communities as well because we know this year that communities of color women of color in particular are going to be key if Democrats really want to be a take on trump and beat him in November and has Joe Biden been able to solidify any of those groups with the when the women of color around him well I think if you look at the polls he's doing exceptionally well among African American voters but interestingly California billionaire Tom Steyer's actually cut into that margin he's been running a lot as we talk about triage he has really put his chips on South Carolina as well I'm I think that does raise questions and I think the splitting of the vote amongst the more centrist candidates is really making it hard for some voters to make that call do they go with Bloomberg with his deep pockets so they go with you know Joe Biden who they know it's certainly some younger African Americans in South Carolina really likes tire yeah I think there's a big generational divides Marie's this point you know a lot of older African Americans really like Joe Biden was younger ones are like more open to Bernie Sanders Tom's tire one of the younger candidates a few words before we go corona virus suddenly putting health care front center well I don't think it's gonna scare people from voting but it you know we see what's happening with the Dow and if the stock market tanks further in the economy begins to really have a hard time even that takes away one of the pillars of Donald trump's argument for being reelected and that's where it could have an impact we just don't know where is where it's going and where it's going to be come the fall Scott Schaefer and Marie's Lagos thank you so much for being
From The Tea Party to The Resistance
"Imagine it's early. Two thousand nine. Barack Obama has just been sworn in as the first african-american president in the history of the United States after momentous election soon resistance arises. The Tea Party comes into being all over the United States. In many places people come out to say they don't like what's going on and they wanted to stop now fast forward another eight years too early. Two Thousand Seventeen President. Donald trump has just been elected and the same thing happens people all over the come out to say they don't like what's going on and they wanted to stop so the tea party and the Democratic Resistance. Are they similar? Are they different? What can we learn by looking at the two of them together? Hi I'm Avi Green. And this is the scholar strategy networks no jargon each week we discussed an American policy problem with one of the nation's top researchers without jargon in this episode. I spoke to Lagos. She is a doctoral student. Sociology at Harvard University and it contributed to the book a- bending American politics which just came out edited by Caroline Turbo and are very unbeatable. And here's our conversation. Thanks so much for coming under jargon. Thanks for having me so we could. You've set the stage by telling us some something about the tea party. No what what did professors got bull. I think. One of your other colleagues Vanessa Williamson. Learn about the tea party. You can give us that background that that would be great. Yes so professor. Scotch and Vanessa Williamson have published a lot of really interesting work on the birth of the Tea Party. And what they've done since they started in two thousand nine so after. President Obama was elected there. Was this backlash and it started off really small and small in the way that it was something people were talking about. They weren't excited for the politics of of Obama they weren't excited particularly for the economic policies. That would come with a stimulus which was referred to as Porculus and so a commentator on Fox News Rick Santelli told supporters and people who are listening. Let's go out let's protest. Let's throw t in the river. Which really translated to? Let's make our own uprising against what we think are really bad. Economic Policies so the tea party was a movement of people acting at the local level and they did this by making friends at protests between Tax Day April two thousand nine to the march on Washington in September of that. Same year organizing their friends reaching out to people on meet up on this before facebook. I really popular we kind of have to remember. This was actually ten years ago now. And the idea truly became something of we are trying to make a movement out of educating people who are interested and saying no to Obama's politics and as educational movement was wasn't is really spectacularly unique because it involved local groups engaging with one another so sharing information where he together to host lectures workshops but also working with national level funders and think tanks and candidates support groups that would be their packs that would be the candidates themselves and then also the RNC and what happened in two thousand nine is Americans for prosperity Civitas. The John Locke Foundation the coke brothers. They all got together whether in public or privately and we're starting to fund these groups not just through grants to do things or signs but their education. We want to support certain economic and voter policies in particular so came down to this idea that we're going to give education opportunities to these local groups e solid partnerships between the John Locke Foundation between Civitas. And this idea of saying let's go on educate people on the constitution. Let's talk about how local politics works and so these groups working in tandem with national organizations and there was a relationship there that started to push the party to the right large part the Republican party largely. Because there's no compromise so the tea party wasn't about finding a middle ground. It was like they took their suitcase. And they marched to the right and they haven't really stopped since and think tanks and these foundations went with them and at this time the Republican Party. Rnc were particularly hollowed out in a sense that there wasn't a lot of national and local support and there wasn't a lot of work between those two factions of the organization. So they kind of just had to go with the. Rnc could say we're a powerful group of tons of people who love the RNC who loved the Republican Party. Being what it currently is and we're GONNA fight for our status quo or are moderation or center right or there's a few people and they were basically quickly stampeded. Moseley by this this kind of insurgency on the right yes so jumps forward eight years to the flip side and before you tell us what. You found out about the resistance. Because I think you've found out a ton of things I love for you to tell me about what it was like to do this research like was this about like looking at big data sets and sitting in front of computers. Or did you get in a bus or a train or a car go someplace and if so where did you go? Yes so the thing that interests me most about the jumping forward as we have to remember that the tea party still exists so jumping forward as almost like getting on a train and we're all going in a direction of the future which is currently now the tea party produced all of this knowledge about how to engage congressmen and senators congresswoman. Anyone WHO's working in local national politics and so when it came time for the two thousand Sixteen Election Liberal Democrats were all just of course Hillary Clinton's going to win and didn't everyone was unbelievably stunned. Stunned sad I haven't seen the word devastated so often on social media and in the news before this moment and so you have. This question of people are wondering who voted for him. What's the direction America's going in? I'm devastated what's happening. And this is happening in local communities in rural areas and cities on college campuses and churches. There's this response that you see your friends on social media and this big idea of what we're looking for an we're trying to understand right like what happens after election of Donald Trump is. We automatically know. There's going to be something similar to the tea party solely because of this massive immediate response on facebook so there was a group. I don't know if anyone was a number. It was a secret group. It was called pantsuit nation. But I I'm just going to tell tell our listeners. I have to admit it I was not a member I was. It was an exciting experience. I think at the height of the group which was the day of the election. There's almost three million members and grew the idea that was you would share your excitement for a female president would wear your pants suit or your child aggressive dress up in a pantsuit to go to vote and once. Hillary Clinton lost this group went from being cheerleaders to being a support group and all of a sudden a member in this group. Teresa shook was like why don't we have a march on Washington and I'm going to jump ahead a little a pants. State Nation Actually took on nonprofit status. It was no longer able to be politically engaged in the same way so groups. This is where this whole local grassroots movement kind of picked up force. I WANNA fly there too. I think that's like a whole interesting story in itself you know. And we've had other researchers talked about the ways in which the land therapy and tax laws distort what people are able to do because activists say like. Oh I want to do war of this work and then the first thing people say. Let's get some grants so we can do it and it was like well. Let's be a five hundred eighty three and then you can't do politics the way that you were doing it before and it's a it's a very strange set of things that are happening. We talk about like it's a natural thing but it's all a manifestation of ways in which our our tax laws in our laws about regulating politics advocacy and. Who GETS TO DO IT? You know play out in real life. It's almost as if we walked into a vacuum where people want it to be able to tell stories of that experience of the support of a woman running for president her loss. And that's what happened with dancing nation but at the same time you had millions of people primarily women who were saying. I want to be more involved. I WANNA do more. How do I do it? And so there's this large push for March on Washington which became women's March which happened and two thousand seventeen and at the same time. So we're still kind of in December. You see something pop up online. It's the indivisible guide so who wrote it in and what is it and how did that play a role so visible guide was written by as relevent Leah Greenburg? Who are at this point in time have experienced as congressional staffers. Dc insiders so they understand what the tea party has been doing for the last eight years. So they post a Google doc and remember tea parties. You've been using meet up basic aged him out where eight years in the future. We've got new technology. The Google doc explodes wasn't side of it is a list of ways to beat. Donald Trump in the future based on what the tea party did. Just kind of completely agitate Obama's efforts for eight years

This week's new developments in the Trump impeachment inquiry
"Earlier today the three house committees leading the impeachment investigation demanded documents from vice president Mike pence about the white house's dealings with you crying and yesterday the committee's interview Kurt Volcker former special envoy to Ukraine among their findings Texan documents suggesting that top state department officials worked on getting a statement of support from Ukraine's president to investigate democratic presidential rival Joe Biden and his son hunter also this week president trump told reporters that China should open an investigation into bite and then his son I mean our KQED politics and government correspondent resa Lagos and joining us via Skype from Washington DC as NPR senior editor and correspondent Ron Elving welcome to both of you things happening pleased to have you both here well I don't think let me begin with you let's begin by talking about the newest the revelation with respect of ice president pence what we know and we're just going the house leaders have sent notice to the vice president saying they want to see every document that might exist that might pertain to meetings that Mike pence might have had with Ukrainian president perhaps with others in Ukraine they want to know everything that he knows about the interchanges between our government at the highest levels that is to say president trump and the Ukrainian president with respect to investigations all the buttons and also with respect to what the president has been saying and we saw this in those envoy messages that you referred to a moment ago the quid pro quo which seems to be quite explicit at least in the minds of those envoys those people in our state department a delegation there in Kiev that the president was saying if you want this aid that Congress has appropriated that everyone seems to be for you've got to give me something on this investigation these are not perfect tax then I take it as a present rises phone call well he called it a perfect phone call some people are calling these smoking texts and a reference obviously to a smoking gun and what do you suspect will go on with Michael I consider who's the I. G. for the intelligence committees can be testifying on Friday this is this is the idea that you have of it is that he's going to defend his handling of the whistle blowers complaint now that complaint came to him directly and he checked it out to his own satisfaction to be able to say he found it credible and urgent and serious and then passed it on to the director of national intelligence his superior for further action a we know that because that individual does requires appeared before the house intelligence committee last week so this is further checking of the legitimacy of the whistle blowers complaint that is driving this whole process Marie said Joseph Maguire didn't find it necessarily all that credible though did he no and I think that this speaks of a different sort of way is that you know different members of the administration are trying to spin this verses the way the Democrats view it but what I would say is that every single piece of evidence that has come out since Adam Schiff first up and sort of made that cryptic announcement about this whistleblower complaint has really played into democratic hands not Republicans I mean these text messages that Ron was just talking about a really very explicit in terms of the concern that was being raised within the administration and their sense that maybe the words quid pro quo quid pro quo was not used but the doubt there was basically a sense that it was that and so I think that whatever the inspector general says it is it has to be taken in the context of everything else as well as the other state department officials including Mike Pompeii who is obviously hit back almost as hard as his boss president trump this is somewhat of a sense the legal your news from helping that maybe China's of being offered a kind of quid pro quo here that is president trump like you did with Hillary Clinton on east said Russia if you're listening where those emails you sort of saying China if you got something on my political opponent here let me know about and which was we going trade war with China well we're supposed to be hearing from some people from China coming to the United States and next week and the context of that request to China came in the same drive way conversation between the president and some of the people covering him in which he said I have tremendous power over these trade negotiations the Chinese really need a deal they need to make a deal I think they ought to make a deal but maybe we will and maybe we won't we don't really have to and then on to talking about China investigating the vines for you were hearing from Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi about the president violating his oath of office just keeps coming up came up from both of them what are you making that I mean I think that this is really the crux of why Democrats are moving now with this latest scandal why they did not you know go as far as they have especially pelo see with the Russian investigation with the emoluments questions all these other things they feel like this is a clear cut case that they can make to the American public that essentially by you know making this demand of Ukraine that that is a violation of the oath of office and I think it's really in a lot of ways a strategic talking point from a public relations standpoint as much as a legal argument because they think they can make both and that is something that people understand very clearly and another California the politician Kevin McCarthy the minority leader said that this pope should be dropped is not enough evidence is not enough transparency all things along those lines seems like now is not suppose he dug in but she pretty much said nonsense yeah I mean you know Kevin McCarthy is very close to the president has called him might have been at one point I think that he it you know is doing what the White House with like in sending this letter but maybe bad timing on his part the letter was being transmitted right as the president was making those comments in the White House at outside the White House about China I'm digging on the Ukrainian stuff and I think it gave policy a very clear sort of opening to say look we're not going to drop this it's true you know to to come across these point that in the last two impeachment investigations there was a vote taken to launch those investigations but what clothes he says I don't need to I don't have to and I'm in control which you know we often hear from Mitch McConnell too so that's a that's not unique to one party will these parties are about is antithetical and as far as soon as they can possibly be what does that mean in terms of the fact that we're seeing whistleblower having been identified as a Democrat yeah I mean I think that that is something that the the trump administration and there always are going to keep trying to hammer on I think it will be increasingly hard to make that point when we see mounting I've events like this text messages were that those concerns are actually being called out by the administration officials themselves behind closed doors but certainly you know this is what we saw it during the Hillary Clinton election and and the accusations with the state department and and the various sort of accusations the president made and so I think that that is their political play if we can make this appear partisan then we can sort of take the heat off ourselves and pointed back at the Democrats victory until they run on the let's talk about the role of Rudy guiliani the president's personal lawyer and all those who really kind of got things started with respect to Ukraine any to some degree although it was also started to some degree by some people in the conservative media who had been riding that Joe Biden had some exposure for some of the things that he said while he was vice president with regard to a corruption investigation in Ukraine now what he was trying to do was get the corruption investigation to go forward and get rid of a prosecutor who was blocking it but that was turned around to suggest that somehow he was trying to end the corruption probe that was started some time ago Rudy Giuliani has been part of spreading that particular interpretation he has done it through the media he's done it through and visits with a number of our allies in different countries always appearing only as the president's personal art now it's interesting that he is not part of the government he does not have a role in the government but he is conducting what appears very much to be our foreign policy business as though he had the authority to do so just as the president's personal lawyer and there's also in the background of this some effort that's been made in the past by the Russians to say that the Ukrainians first responsible for the twenty sixteen election interference which all of our intelligence community has agreed was done by the Russians the Russians say no that was the Ukrainians doing that and they were framing us in trying to make it look like we did it and at this point it appears that guiliani and to some degree the president have been playing into that particular interpretation where thousands of thinking of buying campaign I mean it looks bad that he had a son who had no experience got inspirational board in Ukraine getting fifty thousand dollars a month and also the tie to China and investment firm I mean I think that's the problem for by then is not that obviously there's been any fun but you know rendition of wrongdoing but just the appearance of it and I think that every time his name gets brought up in the same sentence as trump and corruption in Ukraine it's sort of yokes them in a way that is not helpful for the
Capital One's UX Design Lead Talks Digital Messaging
"My name is Rhonda Wilson. I am a US Zayn lead for the digital messaging team at at a little company called capital one. I'm also a partner with a hip hop archivists friend for a Lego group that we've called most incredible and I I am the CO founder of the Hugh Design Summit. That's a lot I lead in Lagos artists and hugh collective and I definitely want to touch on all all of that stuff. I want to start with capital. One capital one actually even sponsored the show back in February so thank you capital one for that. Tell me about the work that you do there as a design. I believe so in digital messaging specifically what we're concerned with is obviously the messaging touch points that capital one uses to reach out to the customers so obviously basically all of the lines of business that capital one has you know bank kept Card Co.. F- where I work is in the partnership space so companies that capital one has has private label credit card relationships with so we consult with internal creative teams in all different cross functional teams to create messaging experiences that are relevant and personalized for the customer and what does that messaging look like is it just email or the sort of different touch points where you're interacting with the customer e-mail is the message. You're always but we also include. SMS and push depending on how the customer chooses to receive their message and now you've been a capital one for a long on-time I mean eight years is like a lifetime to be a one place in this industry. I'm really curious. What attracted you to them as a company well I I I. I have to provide a little bit of context into obviously how I got there but where it came from so graduated from Georgia Tech in two thousand nine nine and was working odd jobs here and there and actually got to capitol went through a staffing agency okay yeah so I didn't even I know what the company was. Oil who the company was until I got to the interview and realized it was capital winning. I haven't had too much knowledge of capital one up to that moment so actually started their contracting and then throughout my years there you know I realized that this is not your typical typical corporate environment as as you might imagine a corporate America Office to be or just the demeanor how people exhibit certain behaviors. Here's is really laid back so that's what I like about it. It's if it's my personality and more specifically the team that I'm on the way we communicate eight and the way that we work with each other. I think really attracted me to one kept me here so I started and on September. It's wealth two thousand eleven. Wow that's quite a data start. Worse less quantum momentus day to start started job. Yes I remember getting the interview and and I got the job but I had requested to start after Labor Day so I got the interview and maybe July like in July. actually went back recently found the email and screen shot it just to keep it for history's sake for posterity and requested them to like can. I can I stay in Atlanta for until after Labor Day to have a going away party so I did that and then started drove up from Atlanta started September number twelve till two thousand eleven and has been on pop from their nice so you mentioned email you mentioned sms. Can you talk just kind of generally like what kind of projects you're working on right. Now now the type of projects that we're working on they range from I guess welcoming customers to they're registering or signing up for credit card providing benefits benefit information about the car providing information on how many how much rewards they've they've attained through usage of the card hard so the other projects that we have are trying to figure out what's what's the best I guess in the ecosystem of messaging and how the customer more communicates with Capital One wet has the customer chosen as their preferred mode of communication and how can we reach them without confusing them on their journey to you know maybe pay the balance on the card or find out how many rewards they have or any like auto loans they may have signed up for so making sure that the information in that we've delivered to them as precise concise and has great timing now. I would imagine with you know between email and SMS there probably is a lot lot of testing that you all have to make sure that the Texas coming off like in the right brand boys that it's you know the rights tone and that it's actually accomplishing you want to accomplish. Is there a lot of testing that goes into all of this. There is we obviously use not only. I use a research in the form of testing that way we make sure that the not only is the brand voice consistent but that is able to be absorbed and and his again relevant and speaks to that particular moment that the customers in their journey. Actually you know maybe a couple of weeks ago. I was in New York doing said use a research just to make sure that anything while the the experience of messaging is is is what they're used to from a financial services standpoint wet what makes sense from a institution like that or do they used to what turns them off and we use that to craft the messaging that we offer interesting. I wonder if I mean you. Can you know correct me here. I would imagine it also goes into maybe like automated types of messaging as well like say for example voice or anything like that if you're referring to something like e-e-e-e-no that which is kind of getting around yeah yeah we partnered with them a lot and make sure that that's also built into the ecosystem not only again email and sms the mass but if the touch point is interacting with you know in either you know in the on the phone or in the browser that they're getting what they need when they want it what's has been the most challenging part about the work that you do those challenging part of the work that we do. I think would be I think the the innovation part I think where we're always looking for forward to doing is being on you know it's kind of like a buzzword but on the cutting edge the bleeding edge even on of messaging so we're always looking to make sure that what we have and what we have the offer our partners is top of the line in terms of the latest developments in email than SMS push looking across the industry making making sure that we pick up on trends that are emerging and obviously let go of trends that are falling away so I think the challenging part is staying on top It's almost sounds like I'm bragging but but but just making sure that we keep abreast of any new development so bad weekend if there's a solution that one of our internal customers is looking to offer their customers we can say hey like we have that or if we don't have it we can offer a similar

You could do a spurs this year if he'd come from lower down in the in the odds to surprise. We're not necessarily win it but the big price lost his.
