"Minute when the pandemic started, millions of people had to give up the gym and work out at home. But as the country continues to reopen that shift is changing. We've seen a resurgence, both in member check INS and member sales. CEO of Crunch Jim Rowley is thrilled to see his members coming back to the gym. We estimated we'd lose 15 to 20% of our franchise members, and we only lost about 2% Rowley believes crunch earned that loyalty by treating members fairly. We didn't build them during the pandemic, which a lot of our counter Parts two in which we believe was just disingenuous to the membership and we built our members trust. And he says. For many people, there's a social aspect to working out in a group setting, whether you're looking for someone to date or just socialize with or hang out with. It's a great place where you got like minded people, but that tends to be mostly younger members. Rowley says The 50 and over crowd isn't as eager to return to the gym.

Changes In The Marketing Media Landscape With Former HAVAS Media CEO Colin Kinsella
"Before the internet era when you're thinking of media you know you're talking about tv print billboards radio to me. It sounds like there is someone who's creating the content and you're buying advertising that's placed in it or not really because as an ad agency you're creating the content so give me an example of creating the content. You're not creating a tv show as an ad agency out a tv show you're creating a levi's jeans s- and they have incredible story line. They've got richness and dutch and if there's another company trying to go against them say the gap you can see big differences between who's going to buy levi's induced by the captured so understanding which target you're going after and what media you think that target is going to absorb more quickly or more in alignment with that ran all of a sudden you start to make a much tighter connection with that person. So the pre internet era media on the integration of is really an advertising play. Eventually you get into the digital age. Now you mentioned google and yahoo already but it seems like a big portion of media's actually starting to create your own media or at least your own web assets as the rise of the internet happened how does the definition of meta change a gap water for sure. There were more opportunities for you to put an advertisement in front of somebody so instead of just having the four main vehicles you now had another typical digital but it was message and it could be incredibly focused. Also be incredibly broad and that was kind of a rare one two punch. It's kind of the classic problem that we have right now. The internet's so big and even from the early days. It felt like you could reach anyone which is a great way to spend a lot lot of money. Maybe not necessarily a great way to efficiently. Spend something that. Hopefully we've got better at in the early days. You're getting brands to build their own websites. They're also marketing themselves on what used to be called portals. But you had the all yahu. Google came along pre social media. What were the effective digital channels. And when did you start making the shift from relying on television radio print and out of home to digital. It happened relatively quickly. Because for yahoo specially in the early days google there was no kind of advertising play with google but with the author who they weren't to advertising much quicker and it was like a rocket
When to Reveal the Price in Sales Negotiations
"When you're having a sales conversation at what point do you start talking about the price. Of course the answer is it depends. It depends on the type of sales buyer journey this type of product. You sell the familiarity of your market with your competitors and much more however my recommended rule of thumb is this reveal the price after value is communicated and understood in some cases this can happen simultaneously but in most cases. The value should be emphasized before prices given. Now you'll have noticed that. In a beat ac- context. The price of a product is shown immediately almost all the time. In many of these instances. The customer already knows the value. Imagine you're looking for new pair of levi's you already know the brand the quality you then decide. The price is worth the value that you believe. You're receiving often a signal of quality. In many of these beat ac- scenarios customers will use that price to tell them about the quality of a product. Since quality is one part of value. You could use the price as a signal of quality here customers determine value simultaneously when they see the price when it comes to selling cars. Almost no one pays the list. Price negotiated deal in this situation. The salesperson doesn't just your best price. An astute salesperson will try to figure out what the value of the car is to you. I what they think you'll be willing to pay and then negotiate based on that but what about seeing price long before we know the value one example is real estate buyers tend to set a price range and make it clear. They only want to look at houses within that range. This can be without necessarily knowing the value of a house above below or within their range. This same thinking applies to be to be pricing as well. If you sell a product where the value is already known for example office supplies. It's safe to reveal the price early on in the sales process. A direct sales team is used in many b. to b. scenarios. The most important role for them is to communicate the value of the product to a
Kate Courtney on What It Takes to Compete as a Professional Athlete Today
"It's interesting. Even our cyclist levi is was really good. Ski racer a great athlete and then picked up realize you could out suffer. Everyone pizza gone. Is i think he could be half a world champion in multiple sports. He's so talented. And the people i know who know him. All say the same thing that he is the most like athletic person and then we're starting to see it more and more that the cross disciplines is bananas. Do you feel like that's common in lot of the other women in the world cup that they're that talented as athletes. Not just this one thing. I think at this point they have to be to be successful. I think it's gotten so competitive in a really exciting way. You know the last two world cups we had there were. This is the first time. I've raised a world cup with field over one hundred. I think we had one hundred seven women on the start line offset which is so epic and also not that many women fewer than the men's category. So we're kind of like getting to equality of participation. Which i think is really exciting and a point where you can't say. Oh but it's less competitive in the women's. I think austin more we would say that the competition is often way more interesting to watch the women race. Yeah and with regards to you. Know kind of being a well rounded athlete. When i started mountain biking people weren't really doing strength. Training and i came from ski racing and transition about making and started really focusing on that sport and i hired a ski strength coach to be my strength coach and my mountain by coach. Hated it he said it makes you tired or sore like this is detracting from your ability to succeed but i think for me. At that age. I was riding on development team with like as riding mostly with guys and i couldn't keep up with them on the descents and i felt like part of it was my physical strength. It didn't have the upper body strength to manage the bike at high speed. And when i did core on. When i did kind of all these things that i was doing in my gym routine i would get on the bike and feel more confident and comfortable and powerful in like a had more control over the bike. So i like kind of diagnosed heels in instead i'll be doing strength training and moan behold. It's it's really become a focus and for me. It's been a challenge to continue to evolve in always feel like i'm one step ahead of everyone else. Hopefully doing new things or exciting things in my strength training but now you see across everyone at the top of the sport is doing it and doing it very seriously with well trained highly skilled people to help them.
A History of Blue Jeans
"There's a good chance that most of you listening to this right now regardless of where you live on earth own a pair of blue jeans. That's because bluejeans have become one of the most ubiquitous types of clothing in the world. The story of blue jeans doesn't actually start in the united states. It starts with. The cloth used to make jeans denim in the fifteenth century. A heavy cloth that came from genoa. Italy was known as jean cloth. Gene cloth was cotton. Heavy fabric sometimes woven with wool. In addition as well it was developed for sailors to wear wet or dry and it was also used for sales. The where gene comes from the french word for genoa. Jen's the genoese would import a blue dye in the form of indigo from india and used it to die their cloth. The french called it blue jeans. So yeah bluejeans actually refers to a particular cloth even before it was ever used as a name for the pants on a related note. The genoese may have gotten the idea for gene cloth from india. The indians had a heavy cloth known as delivery which was a hindi word. Dungarees was traded with europe britain and was used for heavy pants today. Dungarees used to describe an overall made of blue denim denim was developed in the city of france. The development was nothing more than an attempt to copy. The popular content will cloth that was created in genoa. Denham gets its name from deneen which just means from name in french. Gene and denham cloth was a popular cheap cloth for working people in europe and there are seventeenth eighteenth century paintings of people wearing what looks like bluejeans in reality. They were wearing pants of a similar color and a similar cloth. Bluejeans as we know them today aren't just blue pants made out of denim. However there's something more specific this is where we introduce the pivotal person in the story of bluejeans levi. Strauss strauss was born in germany in eighteen twenty nine and migrated to the united states in eighteen forty seven at the age of eighteen.

Keeping Kids Safe Around Water this Summer
"After you've had this experience what do you wish you would have done differently. I think leads really well into our second takeaway here. That was a great question in. You're exactly right so easy to just say. Oh well i was watch my kids. I mean i was on the couch. Though he was sitting on the couch. You know ten feet away from me. The room was filled with people young. Since read this line that everybody is watching the pool. The nobody's watching the pool and is usually the settings when it happens from there is a big people when we were just sort of all busy like just cleaning up in things in and it was so fast but the second takeaway. But i wish we'd really known with levi that we should have had layers of protection in place since toddlers most often drown when they aren't expected water. Those layers are so important looking back. There were so many things that we should have done differently. It was really hate to call it because there's nothing perfect about it but the perfect storm in a sense. The first layer of protection supervision. We weren't supervising and we were all in the room tons of supervision. Too much supervision. I guess really so but that layer failed. We did not see him. Slip out that back door. The door could have been dead bolted. It wasn't could have been door alarm but again we were on vacation. These more things that that we had now. Of course i could have even ordered portable amazon. Fifteen dollars brought them with could have asked my husband go sit on the balcony it till we go crap hunting. We didn't even realize. We thought kids john when they were swimming so it wasn't like something that was like really on our radar and going back to the supervision. Bet so what you're saying there is when there's all the adults watching. None of the adults are watching right. So when you're swimming when you're around water you need to have one adult that is in charge of watching one child or designated the toddler because otherwise you think everybody's watching the children s. This cannot be emphasized enough during the transition tons. I'm not even talking about when you're swimming. It is when you go inside to eat lunch. It is when you go inside for the birthday party to open the presence. It is when you're packing up the car. When the cookout is over and the two year old one all stories these are all the parents i know are the stories it. You're packing up. The car from the fourth of july cookout and the three year olds somehow makes her way back to the pool from the front yard where you thought they were helping. Load the stuff in the car. This is when it is happening

The festival has a wonderful history. Our core was from. Rosalie meyer stern. Who was the wife of sigmund stern. Who was the nephew of levi. Strauss actually purchased the land where the festival takes place in san francisco in the sunset neighborhood back in nineteen thirty one with the goal of providing space for music and concerts and performances to take place for free for the community and this initial thought of hers was shortly after the depression as a way to hire and support this symphony musicians and the land was given to the city with the caveat that these concerts would need to be held here in open and free for the public and here we are eighty four years later coming out of another kind of rough patch and we at the festival or just thrilled that we've been approved to hold the live season again this year in two thousand nineteen we saw over seventy thousand guests over our course of ten free concerts and in two thousand and twenty a month before we were ready to announce are amazing lineup.

However those in the west could send money or male care packages to family or friends in the east west. Germans could even drive across the border to visit. It was like being an zoo and like being the animal in the zoo. Elsa gabriel remembers being visited by western relatives during her childhood in east germany. She had access to western tv channels and loved watching the ads that weren't allowed on eastern channels. For things like levi's you could only hope our bag for them if someone comes from the list and for visit or what to bring to you and even hope that they bring the right thing or the right size when elsa got her hands on a pair they didn't fit right. They were too small but she wore them anyway. Now levi's vase the brand of desire this access to western relatives and western goods. Like leave is is what made east germany different from the rest of the eastern bloc throughout the soviet union people were longing jeans but in east berlin people had contact with friends and relatives on the other side and they were confronted day in and day out with what almost had me in my little group of friends. We always love running stones. That sabine again. Who made insult dresses to afford her. First pair of levi's than once when there were playing the lynn even soviet couldn't go there we pull closest we could get to the wall from the east side so we at least could hear them. He's the feeling moore as close as can get. I remember sometimes i was at checkpoint shoddy which is a gateway between east and west berlin and i would see the lit underground side. It was like a big blue sign up could see that actually from his phone and off sometimes felt like oh my god. I can't believe this wistfully are actually free. People that can walk around there. But i can't east. Germans like sabina could see beyond wall. They had access to western tv radio. They were close enough to hear the rolling stones playing live on the other side and seeing that western culture just out of reach that matter when it came to things like levi's offers one commercial in particular everything all be all right. This morning it was german model cartagena parts and she played girl on an an american ranch. Where the super handsome guy comes down the stairs and she was a big beautiful eyes looks at him and he comes down and takes off and it was just the image of ultimate freedom and cooling is the people that they had indica commercials way exactly the way we wanted to be and there were where we wanted to be so the easiest way to be a little bit tired of this. American corners is where to wear. Levi's don't want those levi's jeans were more than just a cool pair of pants for east. Germans leaves the epitome of everything. The government was keeping from them and as the public got more and more contented and pushed for more goods like levi's east. Germany realized it had to do something.

BSO listeners were super excited to how Paul Dillinger the together podcast Paul is the vice president head of global product innovation in premium collection design, , for Levi, , Strauss and company, , and I love that we're having the chance to talk with Paul for many reasons. . But one reason is because when we think about heritage craft American brands that are known for products that last a long time I. . Think everyone has Levi's pop into their head and I'm not just saying that I think has just been a brand that we've all trusted for years. . So the fact that we've is is taking a step towards circular fashion were super excited at <hes>. . So Paul I wonder if you wanted to give us a really brief intro <hes> of yourself and sort of what you do at Levi's. . Sure. . Thank you for that introduction I. . It's a fancy title and it's but it. . It's easy to say I'm a fashion designer. . That's that was my training to undergraduate and graduate school. . In my MFA in fashion, , design and I designed clothes <hes> but <hes> leave there's a recognition that <hes> beyond just the seasonal cycle you know spring clothes fall clothes in spring shows fall shows <hes> beyond that just a six month normal fashion cadence. .

"That is friends without the our best fiends. So Levi quickly established a list of regular clientele and even if he had received shipment of that first load of freight that his brothers had sent there. Were already two other shipments on the way he was doing business. Ostensibly for the company that his brother founded which was j Strauss and brother but he was invoicing clients sort of as a separate business as just Levi Strauss in July eighteen fifty-five Levi sent a shipment of gold. Back to his brother's this was valued at a little over ten thousand dollars at the time. Which is estimated to be close to a quarter of a million dollars in modern currency? Of course it's really difficult to make those estimates. Clearly the California office was doing really well in spite of the fact that there was something of a financial panic going on in San Francisco that year. It didn't seem to impact Strauss by the end of eighteen fifty-five he'd sent more than eighty thousand dollars home in gold. Yeah one of the things. That really made his business. It'll come up over and over that. Even when they are difficulties they still managed to pull through and even do pretty well like people will always need dry goods. They always need clothes and linens and household basics so it was a really smart business to be in the in the first place in eighteen fifty six saw continued expansion of the Strauss enterprise in California Levi. Sister Fogler who had changed her name to fanny when she moved to the United States. Move to San Francisco with her husband. David stearns and their children assist with the growing responsibilities of the business and his brother. Louis also join them. It is possible though unconfirmed that his mother Rebecca made the journey as well and for the first time since moving to the US leave. I actually had a home with an address that was separate from his business. Not living above it or Within it indicating that there was this ongoing trend of prosperity. The firm also changed names that year it went from J Strauss and brother to j Strauss brother and company maybe to acknowledge Levi's contribution but on all records in California it was listed as Levi Strauss Levi sent more than double the amount to New York in eighteen fifty six that he had an eighteen fifty five that amounted to approximately two hundred thousand dollars eventually in the late. Eighteen sixty s Levi changed the name of the California branch to Levi Strauss and company recognizing his family members contributions eighteen fifty six was also the year that Levi Strauss became involved along with his brother in law in the committee of vigilance which was a vigilante group. Made up largely of merchants that formed to combat the city's growing political corruption and related violence while business and politics had largely stayed separate up to that point concerns over how businesses could be impacted by the lawlessness of men in power led to the committee of vigilance nominating and eventually electing many of the city's business leaders into political office. Oh they picked people that they knew from other merchants and put them in office because they thought that was safer and while Strauss did not seem to have any political ambitions of his own he did back the political efforts of the committee. Those committees there were several of them in several places at this time period and in some places their activities were kind of controversial because there was like an extrajudicial violence capacity in this combat of corruption. So it's like there's a whole bigger story there but his involvement was really about electing to city positions and there had actually been a similar committee in San Francisco several years prior to this. That was much more of like a vigilante law force. That thought that they would fill the gap between the crime that was going on and the police were obviously to their minds. Not doing anything about it. So that existed in San Francisco as well although he was not part of that at the time and eighteen fifty seven. The Strauss family experienced a financial loss in September the S. Central America which had picked up passengers and freight in Panama including a large shipment of gold went down in a hurricane off the US coast in the Atlantic. More than four hundred people died at an estimated one point. Five million dollars of gold was lost including seventy six thousand dollars that was on route to j Strauss brother in company from Levi Strauss and company incidentally the wreckage of the Central America was found and much of the treasure recovered in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. Although there was a significant legal battle over who should get that gold. The thinking of the Central America set off a financial panic. There was a lot of gold that New York banks had been expecting on that ship. So when it didn't show up that was it was a significant economic disruption and yet as seems to be the pattern of his life Levi Strauss weathered the storm part of this was because his brothers were the ones shipping him goods. So that meant. He didn't have to reassure a supplier of his good credit and be like no. I know I lost some money but I will make it up to you. They're like yeah. We'll just keep it going. So the Strauss family continued business as usual and because other entrepreneurs didn't have the credit or the leverage to do the same thing Levi's business flourished as other shutdown by the end of the year. He was shipping gold to New York once again and he had expanded to have offices in the city that were actually separate from his warehouse. He was also taking shipments of raw materials from suppliers outside the family which he then leveraged in deals that got him discounts on the goods that were made from those raw materials as the country found itself in the grip of the civil war. San Francisco's citizens realized they could eventually be impacted by it. California had entered the Union as a free state as outlined in the compromise of eighteen fifty. But while most of the city was loyal to the Union there were some concerns about some government officials wanting to allied with the confederacy after a pro union rally in the city on. May Eleventh Eighteen Sixty one at the junction of Montgomery market and hosts streets. A resolution was put forth that formed a Union Committee of Thirty Four. This is a committee of respected men. He would uphold the ideals of union. Fill vacant government posts and keep an eye out for treason Levi. Strauss is one of the men named as a member of this group and one of only three Jewish men included. Yeah they were very worried that there were people that were infiltrating California who were pro slavery and that it was gonNA completely cause an upheaval of everything going on in the state and particularly in a large city like San Francisco so they really wanted to try to keep an eye out and prevent such a problem. When the troops that were stationed at the Presidio? Were sent east to fight. It really left the people of San Francisco a little bit uneasy and they were fearful without protection now. Volunteer group known as the Home Guard was founded that consisted of three thousand men and it sort of served as a makeshift military force. The Home Guard and the Union Committee of thirty four actually disbanded though when Leland Stanford was elected California Governor Stanford was a pro union Republican. Who is very well respected successful and powerful so the concerns of some sort of pro confederacy uprising that led to the formation of those two groups were pretty diminished under his leadership. Strauss in his California business continued to do well through all of this and the prosperity of California's merchants helped keep the country afloat through the civil war. Strauss had recognized the value of real estate fairly early on and had invested in a number of properties throughout the city which often sold as a prophet after holding them. For some time Levi Strauss and company also moved into a new space that he purchased in eighteen. Sixty seven was a four story building on Battery Street but clearly showed the company's Success. The company was known for its excellent and speedy service and the ability of its employees to satisfy client needs with even the largest orders. There was a write up where they actually used. The word empowered to describe the Salespeople and clerks at Levi Strauss As being able they were empowered to meet the needs.

There is also an embezzlement scandal at Levi. Strauss and company are in October of eighteen.

It also made a statement in an advertisement that the man in question. Es Goodman was no longer with the company it was not authorized to conduct business on behalf of Levi Strauss and company. This mix. The messages seemed to below over while Mr Goodman never saw any retribution of the fact that he had taken money from his employer quite a lot of money from his employer. Neither the company NOR LEVI. Strauss personally seems to suffer. Any negative fallout from it. Yeah that's one of those stories were it's like. They completely claimed that it had not happened. So there is no record of it happening but then the fact that they're also like but also if you talk to that guy he doesn't You Know I. It does seem like it's a little bit of a weird combination of things to put out in the press. The company continued explosive. Growth right into the eighteen seventies as Levi who obviously had an impressive business instinct realized that he needed to expand into international markets. At that point his business had expanded to supply merchants. All along the Western seaboard into Oregon and Montana but he was also expanding farther into the American southwest and then he started to reach out to potential clients in Canada Mexico and Hawaii coming up.

Just a moment that comes up right now. I mean there's all kinds of German your mind off it when I think about. I think about a lot of different things because you know that that moment when you know that I just talked about with with Travis in Hollywood a class act in that you know prior to that when I was a teenager I wasn't like necessarily thinking in that mindset. I was more thinking you know. At that time. I was influenced by the motocross movies. Crusty demons of dirt in a little bit. Edgier type style right so I think back on on like the Stephens lows in Kerry hearts who are a little bit more bad boys and motocross and how you know. I kind of started going down that road a little bit in then. I realized that's totally not me. And I think when when I saw travis at x Games in how he was just doing phenomenal and yet he was. He wasn't talking trash. He was just doing a work in Latin leading the results. Speak for themselves. And that's where I really like. Learn like like you. Don't you don't have to talk about it. You just go and do it. And it'll say enough tattoos you have. I have one tattoo. I'm surprised. Yeah it was. It was literally from back in that timeframe. Yeah I'm surprised because you're industry's littered with tattoos you know like I don't know who was the first person to put it on their neck. But there's a lot of neck tattoo protocols And there's a lot of doodle art on faces now. I know and like knuckles and whatever but I don't see your too. That's why ask like I don't see if he didn't I wouldn't imagine how Tattoo so you had one back then and then I'm just curious what it was. Originally originally it was a it's a launch and Levi which was my nickname k launch and leave launching Levi from jumping.

draft and he was on this week with the on you guys he was on yesterday SO a weekly hit usually every other week of rest web searches with came out yesterday yeah that's right all right so John which came on with the Murph and mac and copes yesterday and first question very simply what you think of the Minnesota Vikings well we have a lot of respect for them they're they're really good football team and you know I think you know I I think there's a lot of similarities in the two teams into in terms of the make up I really applaud Rick Spielman the GM over there and Mike Zimmer for that for the team that they've put together they played together for a long time so nothing but respect I mean to go in in New Orleans and beat that team with with the stakes that where they were that was a really impressive win and I think they're they're kind of hidden all cylinders at the right time you know there's a ton of respect but I think a lot of confidence here because we believe in ourselves a lot as well and so I think it should make for a great match up but yeah there we we respect the steamer a great deal and if there's anything in the match of sink kinda you know gets gets your attention the most as it is a Dalvin cook is it the play action as it did Neil hunter is it their defense eight starters that are played five seasons with my exam or their consistency like what what gets the most respect for me well you're on the right track I mean I think it's kind of like it's it's a little bit like our team it's it's the the sum of the parts I mean there's there's a you know they've got guys just as we do but you know when you when you start talking about their defense of answer wide receiver group Dalvin cook be a heck of a player Kirk cousins having a really good year they got a lot of things to like and so I think they have a very good football coach you know in in my grammar you know one that you know is is aggressive and doesn't coach scared you know so I think it makes for a tremendous match up and and you know the two teams parallel each other a great deal I believe all rights are less free now GM joining us here let's talk about your quarterback it all comes down to obviously you know playoffs are a is very few quarterbacks in the history of the game that have gotten this far in the symbol that don't become legends I mean you know people talk about

I really do I think he's he stepped up to every challenge he's been at his best in the biggest moments I mean I can't say enough good things in nor can his teammates or coaches Jimmy's been great for us and thank you me knows that that we are a football team and he's very much a part of that team we all know the importance of that position and I think we all kind of feel really good going into this game and be very confident our quarterback and we won games and I I think that's the greatest testament to Jimmy that I can play to him as he don't care how we win just that we win and so we won games running the ball thirty five times we've won games lightened up in the air you know and having to get in shoot outs and Jimmy is fine with any of that and these are very skilled at it whatever style game we need to play to win I think he's been up to the task and so we have a great deal of belief and Jimmy we did from the beginning but we also felt like there was tremendous room for up side just as he played in games experiences and this will be another one of those I I think Jimmy is heated by the fact that he's been there before albeit not plane he's he's he's been here before in terms of the magnitude of these games and learn the lessons of the of playoff time that that you know you you have to learn at some point and that's that the reality that every play matters a little bit more and you don't change your approach because these guys have been dialed in all year but you do know the reality that that everything matters a little bit more because if you lose you go all right so that being said John Lynch is I guess the number for mac show and there's a handful of guys John that have old some playoff experience Robbie gold the Sherman obviously Staley Dee Ford used to due to bad playoff game experience but most of the guys on the roster have not so how challenging can just that element be of having the Hornets all that additional energy N. juice that comes with it with a home playoff game you know this yeah I I think one of the great qualities in this team it's a it's a tremendous mix of B. and loose but yet dialed in hand and and the best teams I've been on that's how they approach things they don't change their minds and say okay we got to be really serious this is the playoffs you know no laughing and that you know that on the practice field it's it's these guys are loose their dance it out here practice they're having fun but yet and extremely focused and making every rep count Steve young came and talked to our team a couple weeks ago and that was his message you know don't take any in any minute in the day for granted because you can't ever take these type of seasons for granted and the the the position that we put ourselves and all that's done is give us a great chance and and you can't take it for granted and say you know what it will be there next year you got to take advantage of it you know you you started by saying I've won super bowls I haven't I I won a Superbowl and I think of all the times that I let one go and so you know you try to impart that wisdom guys don't don't for a second give any play away any whether it be practice of the game and that's just the mindset around here right now and I I think they're doing a really good job of that on the right one I'm telling you took this job in two thousand seventeen did you expect that you be thirteen three in two games away for the Superbowl especially after last season well we expected that we'd be compete not in a win but that was our goal we were coming here you know to go Nate we were coming here to compete for championships and that that's exactly what we're doing I mean to be here hosted a playoff game with the opportunity to host the next round you know all the focus is right here and that's what Colin I'm when we first had conversations on this thing how cool would it be to go to an iconic place like San Francisco that has five of them and and bring back the standard that that they had for so long what a what a great opportunity what a great responsibility and that's exactly what it's been and so proud of the guys we've we've brought in here and of all the people that that we both worked with our teams to get us to this point but now we got to make good upon it and that's what everybody's been working so hard to do do you know this weekend throughout the entire season and I'll see somebody just you say historic John this is one of my favorites that you know that they get to give you an avalanche of statistics now to ESPN and allies for the week we can go through everything you want sixty three one seeds debut quarterbacks against the spread blah blah blah blah blah but this one is if you guys wind tomorrow you will go to your photos go to their sixteenth conference championship game tying the Pittsburgh Steelers for most all time that hit me and it's it's so great you know I let alleged and and you know I don't know when they're they're releasing it but some of the guys that are coming back it it's just gonna be awesome the guys that are going to be in the house tomorrow we we were fortunate that we get to see that every week these guys are champions and and you know there's there's something on our wall here that bill Walsh used to say champions behave like champions before their champion I think that's a little easier to do when you've got those examples all around this place but we understood that we had to go do it ourselves and and so we're working hard towards that should be a tremendous environment I know the standard you step on C. animal you know all around town is I've been out and about and people are excited and I I I think they got to bring it and make this a true home field advantage in leave us are you you say there's gonna be some some parade of of of legends coming back is are you saying well it's the forty Niners there has to be I think I think these guys are are proud of the the way these teams plan and so it's been cool the the out reach there and to be some pretty cool things going on and and some pretty special people been there and we're just we're we're fortunate that those guys agreed to come on out and be a part of this and can't wait as you want you're always good about kind of bring us up to date to just latest I guess the three guys a D. four year one Alexander Jr Kaski star actually start with D. for because it sounds like things may be slowed a little this week what should fans expect is he is a question it is going to play tomorrow I you know I don't know if slowed is the right I I just think we're pride we're trying to be very diligent and very smart judicious in the way we approach this you know the hamstrings can be so tricky and you think a D. he's he's like one of those for our age he's a fat fast twitch guy and I think last time when we were in New Orleans we were we were down in Florida training and during that week at some point he tweaked a little bit and D. I think was so ready to play even really share that with everyone he got to game day was feeling tight going in and sure enough he tweeted again and so be very judicious I think this is truly I I do think that you know people come to know that Colin I have been very transparent we don't you know it's not about secrets who's gonna play not gonna play I I think this will be a true game time decision how's he feeling right before the game and the great thing about the we don't need him for fifty place this is a guy who can play in critical downs and the numbers speak to it when he's out there were different and so it would be great to have them but the numbers also say that when he's not there we've been very good so we're comfortable planet however we sure hope we have a moving on to call on one's been as he says it best legendary in his his recovery I'm it's unbelievable when that when that thing first happened six months season's over one didn't want to take that for an answer he challenged the doctors you challenge me John style all Khan I can do is turn to the doctors and say is this possible to the trainers and well if the if these markers and they did a ton of research make JJ what he kinda conspired and said let's let's figure this out and credit to them those guys had a mindset and can you speak for quantities at it every marker and it looks like he it's going to be able to go barring any unforeseen thing here in the next and that's that's awesome force that the Jews will bring matches the energy though the guy's a great football player so great to have gone back and we'll see tech what kind of role playing men but it'll be out there and and can be fun to watch and I'm a run around and make plays yeah and then start tartan the ribs sees you it is good to go or more game time good to go you'll be back in good to have cost you back more so there's been tremendous in in in his place and we'll see how that shakes out but it's nice to have all your players back in and start will be back out there and we're excited about that are there you go there's John Lynch given so given you some insight into the Vikings and the a forty she was out with you and for mac cope with them from back in a game day from the Palestinians online and Copeland Superbowl champion Dennis brown what we'll do is we'll come back and call but is gonna be out of faith from always a few thoughts that Adam has is he looks forward to the Vikings and the forty Niners Leri Kruger I know is it going over charge right now he's got a big notebook and he's gonna lay it on the at ten o'clock to make sure that.
"levi" Discussed on Stuff You Missed in History Class
"So leave. I quickly established a list of regular clientele and even as he had received shipment of that first load of freight that his brothers had sent, there were already two other shipments on the way he was doing business stints ably for the company that his brother founded, which was j Strauss and brother, but he was invoicing, clients, sort of as a separate business as just Levi Strauss and July eighteen fifty five leave. I sent a shipment of gold back to his brother's. This was valued at a little over ten thousand dollars at the time which is estimated to be close to a quarter of a million dollars in modern currency. Of course, it's really difficult to make those estimates. Clearly the California office was doing really well in spite of the fact that there was something of a financial panic going on in San Francisco that year, it didn't seem to impact Strauss by the end of eighteen fifty-five he'd sent more than eighty thousand dollars home in gold. Yeah, one of the things that really made his business, it'll come up over and over that even when they are difficult. These they still managed to pull through and even do pretty well. Like people will always need dry goods. They always need clothes and linens and household basics. So it was a really smart business to be in the first place in eighteen fifty six sock continued expansion of the Strauss enterprise in California. Levi sister Fogler who had changed her name to fanny when she moved to the United States, move to San Francisco with her husband, David Stearns and their children to assist with the growing responsibilities of the business and his brother Louis also join them. It is possible though unconfirmed that his mother Rebecca made the journey as well. And for the first time since moving to the US Levi actually had a home with an address that was separate from his business, not living above it or within it indicating that there was this ongoing trend of prosperity. The firm also changed names that year. It went from j Strauss and brother to j Strauss brother and company maybe to acknowledge Levi's contribution. But on all records and California, it was listed as Levi Strauss Levi sent more than double the amount to New York in eighteen fifty six that he had an eighteen fifty five that amounted to approximately two hundred thousand dollars. Eventually in the late eighteen sixties. Levi changed the name of the California branch to Levi Strauss and company, recognizing his family members contributions eighteen fifty. Six was also the year that Levi Strauss became involved along with his brother in law in the committee of vigilance, which was a vigilante group made up largely of merchants that formed to combat the city's growing political corruption and related violence. While business and politics had largely stayed separate up to that point concerns over how businesses could be impacted by the lawlessness of men in power led to the committee of vigilance nominating eventually electing many of the city's business leaders into political office. So they picked people that they knew from other merchants and put them in office. Because they thought that was safer in while Strauss did not seem to have any political ambitions of his own. He did back the political efforts of the committee, those committees the there were several of them in several places at this time period, and in some places, their activities were kind of controversial because there was like an extrajudicial violence capacity in this combat of corruption. So it's like there's a whole bigger story there, but his involvement was really about electing businessmen to city positions, and there had actually been a similar committee in San Francisco several years prior to this that was much more of like of vigilante law force that thought that they would fill the gap between the crime that was going on and the police that were obviously to their minds, not doing anything about it so that existed in San Francisco as well. Although he was not part of that time in eighteen fifty seven, the Strauss family experienced a financial loss in September. Or the Central America which had picked up passengers and freight in Panama, including a large shipment of gold, went down in a hurricane off the US coast in the Atlantic more than four hundred people died and an estimated one point, five million dollars of gold was lost including seventy six thousand dollars that was on route to j Strauss brother and company from Levi Strauss and company. Incidentally, the wreckage of the Central America was found and much of the treasure recovered in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. Although there was a significant legal battle over who should get that gold. The thinking of the Central America set off a financial panic. There was a lot of gold that New York banks had been expecting on that ship. So when it didn't show up that was a significant economic disruption and yet as seems to be the pattern of his life, Levi Strauss weathered. This storm part of this was because his brothers were the ones shipping him goods. So that meant he didn't have to reassure a supplier. Of his good credit and be like, no, no. I know I lost some money, but I will make it up to you. There were like, yeah, we'll just keep going. So the Strauss family continued business as usual and because other entrepreneurs didn't have the credit or the leverage to do the same thing. Levi's business flourished as other shutdown. By the end of the year, he was shipping gold to New York once again, and he had expanded to have offices in the city that we're actually separate from his warehouse. He was also taking shipments of raw materials from suppliers outside the family, which he then leveraged in deals that got him discounts on the goods that were made from those raw materials as the country found itself in the grip of the civil war, San Francisco's citizens realize they could eventually be impacted by it. California had entered the union as a Free State as outlined the compromise of eighteen fifty. But while most of the city was loyal to the union, there were some concerns about some government officials wanting to ally with the confederacy after a pro union. Rally in the city on may eleventh eighteen sixty one at the junction of Montgomery market and post streets. A resolution was put forth formed a union committee of thirty four. This is a committee of respected men. He would uphold the ideals of union fill vacant government posts, and keep an eye out for treason. Levi Strauss is one of the men named as a member of this group. And one of only three Jewish men included. They were very worried that there were people that were infiltrating, California who were pro slavery and that it was going to completely cause an upheaval of everything going on in the state and particularly in a large city like San Francisco. So they really wanted to try to keep an eye out and prevent such a problem. And when the troops that were stationed at the Presidio were sent east to fight, it really left the people of San Francisco a little bit uneasy, and they were fearful without protection. Navan tier group known as the home guard was founded that consisted of three thousand men. And it's sort of served as a makeshift military force the home guard and the union committee of thirty. Four actually disbanded though when Leland Stanford was elected, California governor Stanford was a pro union Republican who is very well respected successful and powerful. So the concerns of some sort of pro confederacy uprising that hit led to the formation of those two groups were pretty diminished under his leadership. Strauss in his California business continued to do well through all of this and the prosperity of California's merchants helped keep the country of floats through the civil war. Strauss had recognized the value of real estate fairly early on and had invested in a number of properties throughout the city which often sold as a prophet after holding them for some time. Levi, Strauss and company also moved into a new space that he purchased in eighteen sixty seven. This was a four story building on battery street, but clearly showed the company's success. The company was known for its excellent and speedy service and the ability of its employees. To satisfy client needs with even the largest orders. There was a write up where they actually used the word empowered to describe the sales people and clerks at Levi Strauss as being able like they were empowered to meet the needs agree to deals with clients, which is sort of a weird word to be using in the eighteen sixties. But there it was unfortunately, the late eighteen sixties also came with family loss as Levi's half Sister, Mary died in eighteen sixty six and his mother Rebecca past three years later after Rebecca's death, Levi traveled back to New York, and he stayed there for a month presumably to help settle accounts and get her affairs in order. There's also an embezzlement scandal at Levi. Strauss and company are in October eighteen sixty six. When news broke that a bookkeeper had taken five hundred thousand dollars and left the country while the company not wanting to scare away. Business partners said that there was no money missing. It also made a statement in an advertise. Moment that the man in question GS Goodman was no longer with the company. It was not authorized to conduct business on behalf of Levi, Strauss and company. This mix of messages seemed to below over while Mr.. Goodman never saw any retribution of the fact that he had taken money from his employer quite a lot of money from his employer. Neither the company nor Levi, Strauss personally seems to suffer any negative fallout from it either. Yeah, that's one of those stories were. It's like they completely claimed that it had not happened. So there is no record of it happening, but then the fact that they're also like, but also if you talk to that guy, he doesn't work for us anymore. You know, it does seem like it's a little bit of a weird combination of things to put out in the press. The company continued explosive growth right into the eighteen seventies as Levi who obviously had an impressive business instinct realized that he needed to expand into international markets. At that point, his business had expanded to supply merchants all along the western seaboard and into Oregon and Montana. But he was also expanding farther into the American South west. And then he started to reach out to potential clients in Canada, Mexico, and Hawaii coming up. We're going to dive into the thing that the Levi Strauss name is most closely associated with today, which is blue jeans. I, we're gonna have a quick sponsor break.

"Okay i want you to imagine taking an old pair of levi jeans and taking one of the legs in pinching it off really tight like twisting it in pinching it off tight and then filling up from say the hip to the ankle with water and the twisting the other end you could almost create like a balloon if you would of water inside the leg of those levi's and the reason why it wouldn't leak out that much is because the wave of the gene is so tight the cotton we've is so tight the very little water leaks out now if you were to take that same experiment with say a pair of women's nylons well the water would hold in it for just maybe a few moments but it would start to seep out pretty quickly and that's because the junction or the wave in the nylons is much looser than the we've in the cotton levi's so that's kind of what's happened in our gut the more things we've done unintentionally to damage our gut lining the looser that we've or those tight junctions become the good news is because it's tissue can be repaired which is why many functional medical professionals believe it so important for us especially after the use of antibiotics to treat with a probiotics but you shouldn't be surprised if you've never heard your doctor suggest that like a round of probiotics after they prescribed a round of antibiotics and to be honest the focus on gut health is like just starting to reach mainstream medicine and i don't mean that disparagingly because there are plenty of mainstream doctors who know a lot about gut health but almost everyone i talk to has never had a discussion about probiotics with their gpd on lesser gp isn't integrative medical professional there are exceptions and i hope yours is one of them nonetheless if you're treating with a doctor who is in the know or who really takes us whole body approach it's likely that they're going to treat any despite oh sis in your gut with probiotics.
