Then there's another issue steeped in tradition in West Virginia. Hunting. We're not against tourism, not against national parks. I just never personally saw the reason why they had to take this area away from hunters. Larry Case writes for the blog guns in corn bread.

Nothing less than what i desire is not okay and another people. He set for not less unwanted truly desire and if they willing to settle they're definitely not gonna get it because there's no strong message to the magician to tell me how to get it when you very happy with less than what you want. The part of you that's willing to settle is year your shadows within your survival conscious absolutely but once you shatter that benue you're operating at a different level of consciousness where that's not even something you have to deal with.

At the beginning ages of that, which is why was called the dark secrets. So, talking about the magic man and. That kind of what's what developed into Seattle Alchemy. So we don't really use it anymore, but the magic land is. Magician. Okay okay. And you're freeing this divine feminine energy when you outcome is your shadows. Yes. That's one way of saying is that like you sitting in your? Twenties like when you are. Coming along meant to be. With somebody who can turn energy in for Matt. What's withing about? something. Manifested as Turney into mapped. So in that way more I've gone. Choose. Spiritual. Thought. That's On the two. We really been a fool to believe that we're something else. So you know, let's spiritual beings on the human. Love your. Like legacies if you put in. Framework and the problem is that we believe we human beings.

Income passes you know versus what the shadow Alchemy is about to win you into your spiritual. Inheritance. For Heritage of one eight dollars an. Eugene. Mega capitals. It's like. This is how. Manifestation becomes easing. When you become a master turning energy into matter. And then money's just one of the ways you doing. You know money becomes a very nice side effect. Right, but it's not the point. I think the other thing and correct me if I'm wrong. But when you're taking these inspired actions, it's for the because you want to. It's not because will then I'll get ten more clients and get ten thousand dollars and then I will have this tremendous. Self, worth, and value. Yeah I mean. We saw Chenevey terming a value because you choose your value separate anything else has nothing to do with how much money you have or people think about whatever right this is what the number is about.

Passes onto the warrior to take a stand for it and say, Oh, resolving says that okay I'll make I take my orders from queen like several is King of the. Kingdom. And then that activates magician assume, oh, we need to get this done whether here's a way to do it. So. When the desire goes to the sovereign and the sovereign what decrees as a commander of her life. It instantly comes into existence on the level of your soul, right so it's just a question of getting it from Seoul twin tuition and to the warriors who then. Move, matter you know you know make the fiscal changes in physical worlds make. And it's the magician that. Giving the intuition to the warriors, the warrior has the inspired action. Yeah. So the point is that. You have you'll need a specific desire to activate the manifestation process and was. Going to tell you don't know what you want. Do you have to be so split, you're saying one, hundred, thousand cash month. I mean you have to be specific in the kind of tangible thing that you desire in the timeframe in which you desire it.

Illusions Niles whatever you WANNA call it. So I learned back then the truth has a power. And? And and here's another part of this. It's all coming together into shadow out queen that was kind of coming from different places. So, another part of the fate was have been self-employed healing impoundment work whatever scenes the early ninety since one, thousand, nine, hundred, one, I realized that it was my purpose in life. Life. With their on the impoundment. And I you know I've been doing that in so many different ways ending what was. One and my own during the flare how was going to do next? But it was always a hell of a star or from to. Make money on it. Is One thing. consistenly, the until specifically, this year has been money. and. You know a lot of spiritual. Spiritual coaches whatever they know the struggle there. And what they doing, you just can't make a lot of money on it. And Then You know in the nineties ahead a few experiences. You know like faces like short times like Muncie and they made three or four times over a period of seven years. Where I made I. Shouldn't tell them for money which to me back then was like six or seven thousand. But back, then that's like when I was used to making two thousand, a like making seven thousand was unbelievably notch out and. It was EPA best make that one. Must effortless just came to me and I knew it was because of my state of fear. And my energy. It was not what I was doing. Who is was? That created that if seven thousand I mean it's fun to think about how how much money I thought it was back then. So the money will sprayed. Remember insights. That state of being where this That I shared with okay. When I'm in the state of being negative money but those were the times when. Life was magical in always. And in the language of Alchemy is like. I was shadow a free had these experiences of. I was just pure. Truth. leaving. Commanding. You know reality to give me money and it came. From the office of places I remember. And I had a I was doing Sasha then and I was. Going to housecall thing you call it right to. And I was coming in. A cleaner who had been. soups. came out the doors I was going in and she saw I was carrying massage table incid. All can I have a session? I mean, I was really people coming up from the lowest places and asking me session. and. This is how it's supposed to work. Right. I knew this is how it is supposed to make money. So, wife goes on and on and on and I come to the completion. that. Trees and love and God is exactly the same thing. So I have always been motivated by. I want more God in my life you know. This magic. And God is the ultimate source of love and God is the ultimate source of truth. So if I want more God in my life that has to be more than if I want more love than has been more truth. So all come back to how can I have more truth in my life? You know and. You're probably using truth and a much different way than people understand truth. You know as we're speaking today, Guitar Lives in Italy and I'm in the United States and we're in the middle of big political battle and everyone is claiming they have the truth. But you're.

Texans Bid Goodbye to the LuAnn Platter: Lubys is Liquidating
"Wondering, I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on this. Friday. September eighteenth some sad news from my home state Texas. Luby's is shutting down on the surface. It's another casualty of the pandemic. Now, if you're not a Texan or haven't spent much time here, Luby's cafeteria chain and an institution. It's an understatement to say that for decades it's been beloved at one time. There were more than two hundred. Luby's Cafeterias in eleven states. Now, there are fewer than eighty left all in the lone star state. The restaurant chains shut its doors back in. March the loss of Luby's goes far beyond the financial implications for the business itself significant enough and even beyond the jobs of its workers the liquidation of Luby's marks something of a cultural shift one that began years ago. The birth of Belugas we know today is the subject of many. Texas. Squabbles was founded when Bob Lou be opened a cafeteria in San Antonio in nineteen forty seven as the company's corporate history claims or did it get it start even earlier with cafeterias run by Bob's Ancestor Harry Lubi? In Twenty Nineteen Texas Observer Writer Andrea Valdez felt the question was so vexing that she wrote I leave the Arcane Texas history quibbles to the more about Asli knowledgeable of our readers. Regardless Luby's was one of many postwar restaurant institutions that sprouted up to serve suddenly sprawling suburbs in the late forties and early fifties. Once upon a time, the announcement of a Luby's coming to town conferred to kind of signal that this place is on the rise in meant heaping helpings of chicken, Fried Steak Square Fish Fried of course, creamy macaroni and cheese and Jalapeno corn bread all at modest prices and serve with a bit of Texas style. You want more you got it. How's your mom and him with Y'all be able to come back next. Sunday after church you get the picture. Its old fashioned meals, liver and onions and Jello cubes became both famous and famously addictive. It was comfort food for sure. But in a fast changing ever more complex world that bright red Luby's sign was. A comfort in another way to sort of reassurance that simple things endure friendly servers, sensible prices, and the luanne platter half an entree two sides in a row. When a character named Luanne platter appeared on the TV show King of the hill. It was one of the coolest knowing winks ever broadcast in the lone star state. Some might say. The fact that you didn't have to dress up for a Sunday dinner at Luby's made it even cooler until Luby's wasn't cool anymore. By the nineteen eighty s he to become the cool equivalent of driving a fleetwood Brougham something grandparents did. By the two thousands Luby's was suffering at the hands of fast casual chains serving fresher healthier food like mad, Greens, and chipotle. By last year, it appeared that Luby's could be on the way out in June. The pompous family which owns Luby's which in turn owns fudd truckers thirty store hamburger chain attempted to sell it. The takers however, last week Luby's announced that it is dissolving the chain and fudd rutgers to the pompous family plans. To return the money to investors, it could amount to some one hundred million dollars. For the moment, the website proclaims that they're still open. So. Perhaps, some might want to run in and get one last Luanne platter while you still can nothing lasts forever. Alas, Lassen it's too bad that in the case of Luby's most people are okay with.

It's that kind of community where were very involved with our little town. We're very proud of our history. Think if you're driving down the road, you're going to blink and miss it. There's so much more there don't pass history by starting route to Lassen Volcanic National Park, and now we're going to keep heading north to Plumas County to another spot on our road trip that's got a bizarre and surprising name. It's called Bumpus. Hell, and it's in Lassen Volcanic National Park. Karen Heiner worked at Lassen for 20 years. She made the signs that warn people why it's risky to go off trail. You can actually smell bump in hell before you actually see it. It smells like rotten eggs. It's hydrogen sulphide. Hell has been described as like a little Yellowstone way have boiling mud pots, boiling pools. Hell is named after a gentleman that by the name of Kendall Bumpus, who back in 18 65 Wass. A guide for a group. Kendall was warning everyone to be careful of where they put their feet and step because he knew how how crumbly the ground could be. And unfortunately he took a misstep and his light plunged into the boiling acidic water, and it burned him very severely. That's where it got its name of considered to be his hell because of what he experienced people say, Bum pass or Bump or, you know they can't Quite figure out, but Bumpus is What's his last name was? Unfortunately, we have had a couple of individuals in recent years where they have decided to use to ignore the signs and there have been a couple of accidents way. Have visitation of over half a 1,000,000 folks to the park each year and bump Hell is one The three major trails that people want to go out and visit. It's like how can I get there? How can I get help? Lassen National Park is open, but Bumpus Hell's trails are still closed due to heavy snow. Yep, it's July, but it's pretty high up there, starting route to San Francisco. And for the last stop on a road trip. We're going ahead from the wilds of nature to the city of San Francisco. Laura Cliven takes us to a church where the music is funky and the skating is holy. Wow, this beautiful lady for 77 Daniel Albert rings this church bell at seven PM every Friday to signal the doors are open in this towering house of worship. Then the music starts. But instead of hearing this, I hear this Well, That's because I'm at the Church of eight wheels. It's a roller disco in the 120 year old former Catholic church. Just blocks away from San Francisco's famous painted Lady row houses. Pews are pushed against the walls and red and green lights reflect off a disco ball and onto the ceiling murals. David Jean Miles junior known as the Godfather of Skate Proselytizes, I am your roller disco minister. I mean, it's the Church of eight wheels. The Godfather. That's my responsibility to spread religion everywhere that I go. You get that roll legend Church of eight Wheels is Miles. His brainchild. He moved to San Francisco in 1979. I started skating only park about 34 day in San Francisco. And I was looking for somewhere to go. When I went out there. I saw four people go by, like they do that here. I could do that when he met his wife there in the park, and later their kids learn to skate just after they learned to walk. Miles, organized skate groups on top of the Embarcadero Freeway after the earthquake of 89 he even skated from San Francisco to L a 14 times. I'm not that ambitious, but I figured I could at least skate for one night. Lace up my skates. And because I want to look something like miles in his fuzzy purple legwarmers, sparkly red and black top hat I put on the next best thing. A cupcake customer. All right, I'm gonna come talk to you guys can't break. I'm afraid, easy to break. Whether you waddle or sail around the rink. There's something incredible about the giant stained glass windows and disco lights. This is what I call the 45 2nd skate lessons because, of course you can't do it. Miles who takes turns deejaying and skating spots. First time rollers flat steppe flat. There you go. One way is all you need. When you come back around here, you'll be going pretty cool. It only gets better for the California report and Laura Ivan's in San Francisco. The indoor rink is closed during shelter in place, but the church of eight wheels is holding outdoor skating events, including a socially distance.

"A good one yeah I I I was a kid I remember my parents bought a piece of property up near mount Lassen and we used to go up there and go camping on the on the piece of property and friends of ours who bought some property joining and we use it really pitch our tents on their property because our property was filled with never heard of the bush called manzanita and to walk through our property we'd have to take matched machetes and with chop our way through thank you you know that we were in the jungle and I really never enjoyed that so much that part of it and so that's what that's what my face looks like now is it in this this this this cluster of manzanita bushes which are sharp and you don't want to fool around with them so I I just I'm not I'm just I'm trying to build my way up to to doing it but I don't think it was the owners and players get this thing ironed out of the telus spring training starts on this date then the game to start on that date then I'm going to go in and I'm going to shave it and really hadn't rehearsed it and looked shocked and I I I made you know it's not that much fun anyways Avenal ago T. because you have to you have to shave around it you got it you get a Trinity got a attitude I'm not really into that I'm not as it is always a big thing so no matter what you do you gotta do something to take care of it right so yeah so that's what I'm not into so thank you I like it is there a good guy I know you're big in social media other other numerous photos of you with the jungle on your face because I'd like to I'd like to see this yeah I wouldn't but maybe open it up to a vote of fans I her wife really if you want it right it's not a democracy your face is not a democracy posted a video two days ago on the Instagram feed John so we can get one that looks like forty eight hours that's right I put the the the Memorial Day thing my dad and I did a little current intro to on camera to it so so there you have it it's it's all there John as always entertaining we can't wait for next week thank you so much we appreciate it say my and my strategy was are doing pretty well I I have a team in stratum attic on the online game they have a a set where you can draft teams they called the seventies mystery set who and the mystery is that each player there's five different seasons available but you don't know which one you got so you know you might have the guys best season or you might have the guys were season out of the five you don't know which I like because it is it's more like the real the real game right you know this year the players you god and what their history is and what they should be doing but you don't know what they're gonna do that year so the but the the great thing is in the seventies mystery sat on the strata matic online game all of my favorites really McAfee's Willie Mays Juan Maricela Joe Morgan Frank Robinson they're all available and and I got all of them but I and I was kind of like wow how did I get all those guys and then my friend law Sorensen who's who's in the league the guy went to high school with who's a lawyer down in Santa Barbara he looked at my keys to us because we got all those guys although you don't really they're more of his sixties team aren't they and then I realized oh my god I got all my guys with their own you know forty years old so you know what it is trying to manage they get they get hurt and on the disabled list and they're they're injured four times and is I I have a hard time keeping my team on the field but my team did really well and it's just kind of fun when you're a fan from that era that also there's Willie Mays and Willie McCovey and Joe Morgan I got all these guys on my team in a Frank Robinson and and they're all putting up numbers again and and you get to watch him do it it's just that kind of fun to read the box score is and and see their names in it and it coming because I you know you're in baseball things are always happening today but things that happened years ago like that twenty ten World Series team and and twenty twelve twenty fourteen those teams will always remain in our minds as a group even though they haven't been together for years and a lot of them weren't even there the next year but the so the teams and there's an end in not just teams with the players themselves and the great years that they had they live in our memories because we go to the baseball encyclopedia and we can we don't look up seasons and baseball reference dot com or whatever and anyway so that's kind of fun is kind of keeping me a float during these long days of isolation sheltering in place and not having baseball other than over in now south Korea the thing even in the game so I I watch him on tape delay they don't start till eleven thirty at night here you know so anyways that that's something that's kind of I I I just I will admit I don't broadcast them like don't I did when I was nine or ten years old so one big difference here John you're the best thank you so much double talk to next week okay guys I look forward to it bye bye there you go the hall of Famer John Miller as always that was legendary for

Americans on Cusp of Meat Shortage
"There's a lot of rumbling that we're going to have severe shortages of meet. The reason is is that in meat and pork processing plants people by the nature of how those plans are designed or working right on top of each other and a huge percent of processing plants around the country have ended up with big outbreaks of Corona virus and believe it or not a third of all poor processing plants in the United States are now temporarily closed because krona virus ran rampant in those plants. It's been not as bad with beef processing plants but somewhere around fifteen percent or so of those are now closed. So what it means is that we are going to see shortages of pork products and meat and it will be exacerbated by people who panicked by in big quantities. But know that there's been a change. That's been clear as could be over. The last couple of weeks is people have had trouble getting some of the pork products and beef products that they've wanted amazingly people who've never really been into trying the Faked meats and fake ports. Porks are now doing so. The products that are made by beyond meat and impossible Burger and other such companies that are making Artificial meets Artificial port that very entail east and quality. I can tell you although I really love impossible burgers they are seeing big upticks and demand is people now have heard enough about them that if they can't find the beef report product they're looking for their sampling instead the alternative faked meats or whatever we call them. I don't know I don't know what you call a fake meet other than a fake meet. It is plant based is what I'm supposed to say is the politically correct term. I think for them but I have had the opportunity to sample them and For pork products to sample them. Obviously for beef with multiple different manufacturers and the one that I really gravitated to is like if I'm at Burger King I want the impossible walker not the regular. I liked the taste of it better and I don't know that it's necessarily better for me. The price difference used to be quite large now. The price difference is much smaller with these Artificial meets plant-based meats or fake meets. Whatever anyway and if you can't find the beef or pork you're looking for because of all these plants being closed. Then maybe this is the time for you to try one of the alternatives if you try it and you're like this is the worst tasting stuff ever then don't ever buy it again in terms of shortages. You know we've been through the paper product shortages where I noticed a an a story. I read about truckers. I want to talk about truckers in another time because what amazing work. They're doing under very difficult. Conditions Right now but a lot of places that truckers stop for To fill up their trucks with diesel or. Grab something to eat or luring truckers in with every fill up. You get a free roll of toilet paper every meal you buy you get a Free. Rolla toilet paper. Because that became such a powerful currency over the last six weeks people had so much trouble finding toilet paper. And we gotta go. You gotta go and you might need that and paper towels. Also why I can tell you over. The last ten days the severe shortages over there still spot shortages. But I've been able to go online and find both paper towels and toilet paper hit or miss but without too much difficulty now and from what I've read about the manufacturers with capacity that they're putting out now and the fact that people did what they call forward buying of paper towels and toilet paper that you're gonna find that though shortages are going to Lassen one other area where there have been severe shortages is baby products like diapers and wipes that kind of thing and those shortages are also starting to lessen because when parents went in and saw shelves starting to empty out they did a lot of forward buying or panic buying and so it created a temporary artificial shortage because it wasn't suddenly like we had a lot more babies that needed these products but it was the patterns. People were buying and is people bought enough to last month after month after month after month. It created no inventory for others trying to buy and those problems are starting to let go as well and we're going to fine with the unusual circumstances surrounding having corona virus hangover us. We're going to continue to have various things that will be in shortage. Apple has just announced that they're delaying their new wave of IPHONES. Later this year because of all the shortages and products you know all the components come pretty much from China and they've had a water shortages of those components. They don't think they can have enough inventory of the phones for launch so they have delayed the launch at least for a month. Now it could be longer if you're waiting around for the new V the twelve series iphones
Leadership During Difficult Times
"Guest on this episode of the strategic is Keith Hennessy. These days he teaches at the Stanford Graduate School of Business Stanford Law School and his leadership fellow at the Bush Institute where he's teaching our leadership program sessions during the Bush administration. Though Keith was the assistant to the president for economic policy was the director of the National Economic Council during the financial crisis in two thousand seven and two thousand eight so those days Keith was working around the clock to blunt the impact of that financial crisis on on our economy. So we thought it'd be interesting today to hear about that experience while we're reacting to the cove in nineteen pandemic. That's happening right now. Keith thank you so much for taking time while your social distancing to call in happy to help hello from Palo Alto California. Well first off. Can you paint a picture of what it's like to be a decision maker in government during a time like this because I know right now? I'm watching the news. And there's just a constant stream of information things are changing by the minute and some of it is is fact some of it is conjecture. Some of it is somewhere in between. What's that stream of information like inside the White House and in our government? Yeah well an advantage. You have when you're working in the White House is that you get you. Get the best information that's out there. I always joke that one of the wonderful privileges. You can pick up the phone call pretty much anyone in the world and say. I need to help the president understand about your area of expertise. Can you spend some time with me? The person will always say yes. And then you have. You have a tremendous Roster of experts working in the government and then also outside of government Who can help feed you information? So the information tends to find you and if it doesn't you've you've got a team of talented people who can go find out The best available answer to any question. That's out there but there definitely is sort of a fog of war we're You think you know what's going on and you probably have a better picture than almost anyone else But there are a lot of unknowns. There are a lot of things that You know that you're just making educated guesses at so that's tough in hindsight This is one of the big mistakes. In terms of historic analysis is in hindsight. It is very easy to forget the things that now seem obvious. But we're not obvious time You know the biggest mistake about hindsight announces at the time. You didn't know what was going to happen next. And while you thought you knew what your actions and decisions might Might produce you're not always certain And then the other thing is is stressful And so you learn how individuals react to stressful environments and then you learn how teams React to stressful environments and you know I think it also depends on how long the crisis Lassen how long the pressure is applied. It's one thing to be in a stressful situation for days and weeks. It's a whole another thing to be in it for weeks and months and wears on people and In overtime that takes a toll because the people who are making these decisions are after all humans right. That's actually kind of interesting. And and so how? How do you keep team functioning under these kind of in under this kind of situation? And where might we might be doing this for a long time? Yeah I'm not sure I have many tricks. We were in in one respect. We were fortunate in that the the financial crisis in two thousand eight hit in year eight. So of the Bush team We knew how to operate as a team. We knew how the mechanisms of governments worked on a lot of US had four or five or six or seven years under our belts working for this president working with each other So we had those advantages of experience and know each other and frankly had a really good team In that last year With with Hank Paulson sort of as the the field. General for the president with Ben Bernanke over at the Fed and Kevin Warsh And with a lot of amazing people internally and so that teen Kinda you know it means that you don't have to worry about those aspects of it. You can just focus on the crisis of hand. So we had a bunch of pros. We had a bunch of pros. Who knew how to work together. And then you know you just you kind of say look. There will be time to sleep and time to rest on the back end of this. We're just going to keep pushing basically because we have to. I think the other thing is the morale is really important and and Bush thing. We were really fortunate because the morale comes in large part from the president You know the morale and the tone I always say that the tone in the White House is eighty percent set by the president and twenty percent by the White House Chief of staff and we had a president and a chief of staff who were creating a tone and environment where the rest of us didn't have to worry about the politics We could basically just focus on. What was the? What was the best policy? And how do we try to make it happen? So then you mentioned the that you knew how the government works and the government with all of its departments and with experts who sometimes have competing priorities. So in general strokes. Can you talk about how to how these departments all work together and coordinate during a crisis like this? Well that's what the White House policy councils are for. At the time we had four of them there are now three In the White House of the National Security Council is the granddaddy of them all And the National Economic Council in the Domestic Policy Councils And I worked in a on the National Economic Council staff so these are people who work in the White House for the president and Their job is to coordinate policy making in their in their area for the All the information that comes in for the president goes through the Policy Council to sort of structure. It make sure the presence president knows what's going on and what that best information is and in particular because the president has got a lot of advisers each of whom is responsible for looking at a part of the problem and the Policy Council Stash. Job is to make sure that the president has the information that they need to look at the whole problem. And so when you run one of these Policy cancels you get very good at running meetings and conference calls to pull all the advisers together To to compare information to figure out what decisions the president to make and then to make sure that the president hears from all of you know his advisors that he needs to we. We would joke that. Our job was to set up clean fights cleaner where you'd have conflicting advice. The you know one team advisors would set a precedent you do X. And other advisers would say the president should do why you. WanNa make sure the president gets the information. He needs so that he can make that decision and then when he makes the decision that everybody throughout the executive branch actually executes. Does what the president wants to do right so you would actually present. Exxon wide both team ex ante y presented the president. Let him make that decision. Yeah and I shouldn't describe as really two teams that a mismatch speak mistaken. Are My these are. These are different advisors who were all part of the president skiing. But right right right just disagree on a particular question and You know these. These decisions are hard. None of the options are particularly good. Because you're always over constrained But there are just different. Trade offs different choices that the advisers would make. And what you WANNA do. Is You want to hear the president. Have the president here. Those arguments be able to push the advisers. And then say okay. Here's what we're going to do You know the privilege of working for the president. Is You get to be in the room to make the argument or the option that you think you should make. And then when he hasn't sides it you've got to go out there and execute even if he went with The other option one that you didn't recommend be interesting thing about the financial crisis is that there were a lot fewer disagreements about what to do among

It's not but ultimately gotta lean on your fellow engineers but it's important that you set so the broad strokes folks so a lot more like planning and off front work but then letting other engineers run with something yeah you gotTa Transfer People for sure all right anything else that odds that definition. I think it's an interesting I did ask for definition in the first place because I think every company will execute it very very differently and so it's interesting to hear obviously everyone's perspective here. I think we all have a slightly different definition in mind where the like coating to sort of management management ratios might be very very different depending on where you work. I think that's a fair point is they're completely different. Depending on the company say a lead engineer sewing that is honest honest with themselves about the amount of coding they do. Tony said Yeah. I feel like your son no matter what as a tech lead you're likely coating less. I think in general is engineers in years. We overestimate how much coding we do like Oh. You're you're seeing yourself engineering. It's cutting your your pilots seventy eighty percent of the time and it's probably more like sixty percent of the time we we we got a lot of meetings yeah. I I do think as you become more senior and more complexity of your role that grows hashing that's really funny as your coating actually goes down. That's definitely the way I've seen it in in my house yeah and I like put enough. I've had a conversation with our director about this much. Hey you know I it turns out. I'm starting most of my time. I'm doing network which is like writing. Docs meetings and organizing people in wrangling different projects and like. I don't feel like I'm doing my job. He's like that. Is Your job like your job to get stuff done. No matter what it takes sometimes coating more often than not it's not coating and that's kind of what lead engineers do by the way for the word projects as Mars for wholeness countable thin sharp. I think so I mentioned Fisher lead with the introductions and that's a role. I guess I really haven't heard of that particular. Taylor role until I got to a LASSEN and it's not official like role as in like senior engineer and like a future leader or anything like it's an addendum addendum. It's like a thing that you do as senior or you actually be any level and do that particular role but it's like somebody that let's say you take a team. That's pretty big and you break them up into smaller. smaller teams to work on a particular feature so like maybe on on screen. There's like some small. thing like you're building. They are a card that does X. That's a feature you feature lead it and what that really means. You're trying to help the product manager and the designer figure out anything that needs to happen to get that done from like the technical side so they're gonNA define. Maybe what the product manager and the designer according to define like you know what is and what it should look like and you're gonNA figure out the how and it doesn't mean that you wouldn't figure out how with let's say let's say you're on a future team and you have other senior engineers or junior all levels that you're working with. They're gonNA also figure out how to build this thing but you might run interference or maybe make make it so they don't have to go otas many meetings as you do about the technical implementation. see figure stuff out. Maybe a little bit more so that they can just like go and bills and and not have to be distracted too much. I think that's that's one way to think about it. A switch that up by future too is meaning is you could be the the lead on this feature and insulin so it could be on the lead on the next feature like is it something that's kind of interchangeable totally on insult for the last year more than like a future lead on a huge each screen Bisley redoing the entire poll request experience and that is a massive thing. That's like many many many many many features and actually actually to be honest it was it was too much that was me like almost never coating and doing a lot of like interference in all sorts of stuff and recently. We decided to break that up so now we we have many feature lead. You know people from different levels not all senior. I'm just taking over and owning a little piece of that page in working through plus really Likud. I didn't actually know to feature lead was but it sounds very similar to like attack lead lead engineer whatever it is it's very similar but is very narrow focus on on this particular feature year leading this ever yeah. It's really cool. I think another area that we miss maybe defining on how to describe attack lead. They feel like you're dealing a lot more with cross functional teams. I feel like as an engineer. You're always working really closely with your team. Maybe maybe you're working with the PM the designer but oftentimes there's other requirements come across cross functionally. There's like other engineering other disciplines that need to be brought brought in and you might be that person on goes in Shepherd's that and brings a technical perspective to it. He drew clarify cross functional for those who don't speak Silicon Valley. I don't know if it's is just silicon valley but I've not heard that too much. Okay that's fair. I mean cross functional to me means different functions of the business so that might actually be like like I mentioned PM design but it could also be even cross functional engineering teams. There's like A. Ui Team is a back end team Thurs networking team. There's like who knows what your project needs but you might actually be involved in a lot of those discussions where you're talking about okay how does the the back in interface with the Ui how does the backend interface with a database and those are the types of conversations where I feel like a tech lead might be involved. It's some of those meetings that you may not. I have to have all your engineers involved in like if you're a front end engineer you may not want your entire team there but you wanNA representative and to me that someone who is tackling exactly that can represent your team in those discussions that are broader function of the Costume Sean seeds that good jump. That's okay. I'll take it a home uh-huh affair all right well since it's okay. How could you make it better. I would simplify it right I would I would say it comes as different parts of the business that may not be. It's more than one product area so start with you. Did I think you compile all right now. That was project. Project Project Tares when you're a tech lead. You're the ambassador for engineers and you may be the first point of contact that he was ever had with with your team and so it's really important to make really good impression and if you're trying to get something done obviously that's why you're at a meeting with. This person is really important. He said good context high. Make make sure to explain why what you're doing is important because why should why should they help you. You gotTA show them. Show them the lights instead of make them light. It's very you can get people to do what you want by making them do what he wants or from top down. Maybe you can depend on organization do a top down thing but much better to get them to buy into there. You have to convince people that this is a great idea. That's like psychology right like that's that's like that's. I think what's been interesting choosing to about some of the definitions of this very outward facing and there's a lot of metal work involved but there it's been alluded to before here like internally also at least looking internally within your team. engineers are really really good resources for decision making so we've talked architect eating and making decisions based on unlike technologies to move forward with given the long term context in the projects cutoff line. I think there is external and internal responsibilities as house while put yeah. I guess what kind of skills like we kinda talk about some of the responsibilities but like what kind of skills goes into Vena technically you have. I've been around the block engineering wise. You have to see and you have to have failed. You have to have succeeded. You'll have to have done something of a biggest cope before I I like the failure part because you really do learn from all your past failures of like these are the types of questions. I need to ask front so that my team doesn't fail again. I if you don't if you haven't had that experience you might get engineers that are in that that team that you're on there like this is amazing technical challenge. I can't wait to go down a rabbit hole and work on this thing forever and you're like man. Maybe that there might be a different solution. That doesn't happen before I like the I've been around the block that is added to your point failure that is such a big part is like learning what not to do just as important as learning what you should

Lassen Volcanic National Park May Hold Answers To Evolution
"The discovery of a strange virus living in hot acidic lake in California's lesson volcanic national park may he'll the answer to the evolution of DNA as today's most common genetic molecule. Most biologists agree that earth's earliest life. Use a mix of RA and proteins as genetic material instead of the much more stable DNA molecule RA cannot combine the DNA, and there's no way to form genetic transitional molecule, so how did those simple one celled organism? Switch from one to the other DNA and RA are similar in that they are made of amino acid building blocks Arnie is single stranded by DNA is double stranded. The late virus contained gene made a DNA that held instructions to make a protein coat for an RN a virus.

But this odd virus wasn't a retrovirus somehow the. Oren edging have been copied into a piece of the. Scientists think this strange hybrid virus may have come about when three separate viruses infected the same cell. The retroviruses enzyme copied a piece of the Aren viruses, gene into the DNA viruses genome. It was a perfect storm that resulted in the new genetic combination.

Do you color-coded do different note cards, what what was your outline like for this or dwell on it just the same way that it's actually don't remember that? Well, we we were kind of like we had a skeleton so early that slowly filled it in probably in a beat sheet and eventually at some point. I remember much more clearly in the invitation will imitation just having color coded cards and lay them on floor rearranging them in terms of like what information was being given away.

Taking a Visit to Essex County
"Device that you're listening to. When I review something on the show, I'm commenting on it because I like it and I want you to take a look as well. I try not to criticize or rant because there's enough out there already. I try to stay positive. I stick to the old adage that your mom or grandma probably told you if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. And today's no exception. I recently read Essex County by Jeff Lemere Jeff tells a complex story with simple black and white art. He can do that because the setting takes place in his childhood home. He tells three separate stories that are loosely connected. So here's a solicit. Where does young boy turn when his whole world is suddenly disappears? What turns two brothers from an unstoppable team into a pair of bitterly estranged loners? How does the simple hearted care of one middle age nurse reveal the scars of an entire community and can anything heal the wounds caused by a century of deception. Now I'm more of a superhero fantasy. Fan, but this one had me turning the pages to find out what happened next. My personal favorite was the second story about the two brothers and the falling out that they had because of the simple art. It showcases, the ability Jeff has Intelink story. This came out in two thousand nine has been in has been put into a collection with extra art and stories. I'll put the Lincoln the show notes. He can take a look in by it if you want to. I do recommend this one though. The next one is Knin Jack versus the valiant universe. This is a what I would call a fun popcorn type of book. It reminds me of the old x men versus the fantastic four back in the eighties. It's a story. You can tell that was put together on purpose by the publisher to appeal to a large readership. So you get the Naan Jack readers to read maybe unity or x. men a war to read in Jack and and on and on the reader knows it. But in this case, it's still a fun story to read. I guess you could say, I succumb to the marketing boys. Here's a solicit calling king Naan, Jack m I six deadliest intelligent operative a weapons expert. When the ruthless assassin Roku exploits his greatest weakness, Naan Jack will be forced to betray his closest allies. Now on the run, he must face off against the most powerful heroes known to man for high octane take-no-prisoners trial by fire, more perilous and more predictable than any he's faced before the world's most dangerous. Super spy goes to war with the valiant universe. So check it out. They, I think they put it in trade paperback, and you can get all six issues, but together just a fun little book. Plume by Kaelin Smith Lassen certainly not least is plume. I talked with Kaelin Smith at Comecon, and as I've mentioned in two days ago, she is generally a nice person. I went to one of her panels and talked with her in the vendor area and ask a few questions, and she patiently indulged my questions in answered. All of them. Plume is a fun western adventure type of book with magical undertones to sum it up, I would say it's Laura Croft meets John Wayne type of John RA, and here's the solicit for volume. One plume a story set in the old west about a girl named Vesper, gray and supernatural companion, cork on their quest, recover her father's life's work. They encounter new friends and new foes and learned that the wild west is anything, but tame Kaelin Smith not only wrote it, but she did the art as well. Both in my opinion are excellent. This is a passion, passion prod. Occurs and their three total volumes of that.

Just a moment. I hear some tech headlines. It really pays to work at alphabet. The parent of Google said, its workers earned a median pay package of more than one hundred ninety seven thousand dollars last year. The fourth highest pay among hundreds of companies in the S and P five hundred index that have disclosed those figures. However, alphabets median pay was about eighteen percent lower than at rival internet, giant Facebook, where employees earn a median salary of two hundred forty thousand dollars. The relatively high pay at two of the world's biggest tech firms as a sign of the talent war in Silicon Valley where talented engineers are in limited supply will the third time be the charm for a plan. Merger between T mobile US and sprint T mobile has struck a deal by its telecom rival for twenty six billion dollars the third time in the last four years, the two of attempted a merger, the deal faces regulatory challenges in Washington over worries that the deal may result in fewer wireless competitors and higher prices for consumers. The Wall Street Journal says sprint and T mobile executives could make the. Case the times have changed, and that competition could actually go up investments in five G infrastructure could blur the lines between cell phone provider, cable company, and technology firm.

Danielle as article, seven jobs, robots will create or expand at wsj.com coming up. Why sales video game headsets are booming. This is tech news briefing from the Wall Street Journal. Welcome back. Everyone. Multiplayer video games are hot, and so are the headsets that gamers use to talk to each other. The Wall Street Journal says sales of headsets used to talk to fellow gamers nearly doubled in the US last month from a year earlier according to NPD group, which tracks sales for the video game industry spending on headsets, helped drive sales and NPD's category of game accessories and gift cards to a record level in March. What's driving the big demand for headsets Wall Street Journal, tech reporter, Sara Lee needle. Men is here to tell us, Sarah, it is obvious that gaming is no longer just a solitary occupation among teens or any other group of players. It's these team based games like fortnight that are really popular right now isn't that driving the demand for headsets and other words players can play online with each other and chat through the headsets. They go hand in hand. It has a lot of these online multiplayer games are team based. So you have the headset on and you use. The to coordinate strategy help one another. So you're asking your teammate, you know, go left you rights and then in between, you might be chatting about school or whatever, but the headsets are crucial part of it. I mean, if you're playing alone in a multiplayer game where you're not a team, even then the headsets can be helpful because you can hear footsteps of another player coming up. You know, virtual footsteps and so sound does play a role, but the most important part of the headsets as the ability to talk. Okay. Sarah, you seem to single out the video game fortnight for the booming headset demand. Why? Well, actually MP singled out fortnight as a likely reason because the game is so enormously popular, it's a free to play game. So it's really attracted a group of players who maybe you'd normally couldn't afford to buy a new sixty dollar AAA game, and it has that AAA quality in. So the game is so phenomenally vessel and curb. Popular, and it's available on PC's and consoles and mobile. And it allows for cross plays, though someone on a PlayStation fork play against someone on a PC which is not comments, very unusual. So all these aspects and also it's a very cartoonish. There's no blood and gore, so it's something that parents can be tolerate a little bit more than some other games. They certainly parents certainly appreciate the fact that it's team based in that their children are playing with one another, not by themselves, which is something that's been going on for quite a while, but it's really ramped up in the past year with rise of games like fortnight, and there are others out there to midsummer them. Well, you got overwatch that's not free, but it is a team based game in extremely popular. There are other games that are in the east sports world, maybe a bit older like Doda to or counterstrike, and then you can even go back to world of warcraft, but the number of people playing these games just escalated in recent years and. You four and I really knocked it out of the park didn't fortnight's creator, develop a free version alongside the paid game, and I is it the free version that has attracted more players. Oh, absolutely. So the the original four-night the man game came out last year July and it was in the neighborhood of, I think, thirty or forty dollars and it did okay. But it wasn't, you know, wasn't anything special. And then in September came out with this free version and it's a different kind of game or different objective. It's it's a style called battle royale and that you know, that style play is very much like the hundred eight. He got one hundred players thrown into a map and you're fighting to be the last wonder survive. Or if you play an, you know, an a team, it's the last team or survive.
