Ever Hire The Right Person For The Wrong Job

"So this is a quick shout out. One things. Look I'm hired a lot of people. You've heard me mention that. I've hired some amazing people in my career. And some. Not. So amazing right. But The ones that stand out in your mind you know when you look back over it. Everybody's got a story right? You have a story, I have a story. I remember some great stories of being hired on some impossible tasks in pulling it off. I I don't recall if I mentioned. I was a consultant at Lexus Nexus. I was hired in as a business analyst. As working for actually software consulting firm. In they got me a role at Lexus Nexus near Dayton Ohio. In there was just an amazing adventure but. During the interviewing process. My immediate superior had another candidate. That he preferred or SOM- told. In the. His boss. was very pleased with the woman who was leaving the role and she was trying to we call backfill. She's trying to back fill her position with me because we worked at the same consulting for. Him The. The boss, the project. The highest level that I was interacting with he looked at my skill set and he said, well, you know, I don't see all the. The seashell Bourne Shell the. UNIX. now called devops, the UNIX system administration, the programming I you know I don't see that strength on. On his resume. In. The person who is trying to get me back filled was like ill, it's here. You know it's Kinda hidden under the covers you know because of this role he can do X. because a y you can do z. kind of thing and was making the argument for me. And, that's that's why you as talent trying to get hired is you have to have a conversation with the hiring manager. It's that simple if you're going through the HR department to get a job. It's it's like you going into fight with your hands tied behind your back as not a fair fight by any means. So. I said all that to say. What can you do if your talent to get hired as you can put your best foot forward? How do you do that? It's not with the resume. You send him a resume its going into an applicant tracking system. I'd say nine out of ten times. If not more, it's almost guarantee in the ATS is Ben Tuned to the point where It's told give me the top three or four candidates for this position. and. If there's any reason to eliminate you say a mommy gap. You. Raisin a kid or apparent gap taking care of a parental unit Keva lemonade yourself. You WanNa, send your linked profile your linked in profile. Your chance to say, Hey, here's what I can do. Here's what I've done. Here's why I'm the best person for that position. and. If you hiring manager look, you need somebody that can hit the ground running right? Hr was put all these lofty ideals into the job requisition. You know we'd like it. If you had a Nobel peace prize would like it. If he had six PhD's, we'd like it if Yada Yada. Yada. In the hiring managers like look I promise the company that might division, my department, my group would produce X. and we're nowhere near there because we're down a man or two or three. Me and being a species not sex. And so. Hiring managers you need to reach out so I can put you in touch with talent. That makes sense for what you're trying to accomplish says making some sense.

Scrabble app faces backlash from traditionalists as board game goes online

"Today's topic is scrabble. US Avid. Word nerds have been using the a scrabble APP for many years now it's a great way to fill the time and challenge your mind as you deal with the stress of corona virus and zoom calls. My Mom who's eighty five years old with an incredible mind for words plays every day. Unfortunately despite America's urgent need for things to pass the time right now, the folks Hasbro decided to kill ea scrabble. For most people. It stopped working on June sixth. Almost five hundred people have commented on my blog post about the shutdown and boyer they, upset. In the place of EA scrabble, you can try the new APP scrabble go created by scope. If, you can imagine they've game fide scrabble. scrabble go includes throbbing graphics in Garish Orange, Yellow and purple. It constantly bugs you to get your facebook friends to play. You could earn chestful of virtual prizes and customize your scrabble tiles. It includes duels, tournaments and timed contests that everyday scrabble players would have no interest in. After ten you get to watch pure. Add for other silly games more suitable for children. I did my best to give scrabble go a fair chance, but even if you can get past the distracting graphics lighting up like a Vegas Casino, there are problems. I cost four dollars ninety nine cents a month to get rid of the ADS and get features that used to be free like seeing the best move that you missed. Sixty dollars a year is pretty steep. Second. If you like to play the machine, you'll be disappointed. You Play Zoe an animated Avatar with an unnaturally large head. WHO's a pretty lame scrabble player? Many players, soliciting you to play, are actually bites. WHO also tend to be terrible? Third the game includes boosts which allow people to cheat. Once you accumulate enough gems. You can swap out your tiles anytime when any move which makes it way too easy. The only escape is a deeply buried classic mode. Finally. Many women players tell me that men are hitting on them using scrabble. Go as a dating site. My evaluation despite the name scrabble go isn't even good enough to use when sitting in the bathroom. Don't despair though there are alternatives. If you like to play the computer, the best choice is word master pro. This elegant APP created by developer and Brazil has a computer that plays at lightning speed, and can be set to a high challenge level, and to avoid strange words. You'd never spot outside a scrabble dictionary. It's only three ninety nine a one time purchase. There are scrabble variants like Lexus and works with friends, but classic scrabble players will object since they don't duplicate the traditional scrabble layout. If you want a timed game, go to I. S C Dot Aro, the Internet scrabble club. It's a rush, but not everyone loves the stress of a countdown timer.

Getting Out Of Prison Sooner

"Alexis Nicholson, has this picture from when she was eight years old, so yeah, this picture means to me I've always had onto even though she's a piece of paper from chucky cheese. It's a picture from her eighth birthday party. There were a lot of people there, but this picture especial to Alexis because it's just her and her Dad Reggie there in a photo booth in their heads are up against each other smiling. Shaky cheese and I. don't really it's hard to talk about. Alexis is Reggie's only daughter. She's twenty five years old now, and she got this picture printed on a pink sweatshirt that she's wearing. I've always been a daddy's girl. You know what I mean so I've I've always been close to him? Even though he's always been far away, I guess you could say her. Dad was arrested not too long after that birthday party when he was just twenty five years old, according to transcripts, the police had shown up at Reggie's house in Oklahoma City because it's home. Burglary alarm had gone off Reggie wasn't home for it, but when he got there, his door was left, wide open and police were waiting outside. They had responded to the alarm. And Reggie told the cops they could go in look around, and while they were looking around, they found a shoebox with some drugs, money and a gun inside. And they arrested Reggie. I do remember when I got told. My grandma beats me up from school. And She was just like they got you. In I knew I knew she was talking to Bellboy at. Believe is so I asked her I said who I said WHO has she? The police do. The police found six hundred and thirty five grams of crack cocaine in the shoebox, which is a decent amount it would be like to soda worth of crack a little over a pound enough to be considered trafficking. This was in two thousand and three now. If you were caught with this exact amount of drugs today in Oklahoma. The most prison time you could get is twenty years so a long time. But the laws were much harsher back then, especially, because Reggie had been caught with drugs twice before, and that combination to drug convictions plus a trafficking conviction it carried one sentence and one sentence only the rest of your life at the trial. The prosecutor told the jury that life meant. They could give reggie a million years if they wanted. Mercy is for people who don't commit one crime. After another, the prosecutor said mercy he said is for the innocent. The jury gave Reggie Life in prison without the possibility of ever getting out, that was mandatory, but then the jury added another one, thousand, six hundred and fifty years after life, even though that's impossible, and even though he didn't do anything violent. For Lexus it was like she had to mourn. A living person is different from see somebody in a casket versus going to a prison in. You can't leave with the person that you WANNA. Leave with this breathing that the person has life. You know what I mean. This impossibly long sentence came out at a time when Democrats and Republicans were trying to top each other how tough they could be on crime especially on drugs, and even more especially on crack. They said someone like Reggie's should never come out but this. After seventeen years behind bars, reggie got the chance to do something. He never imagined he'd be able to. Your original Nicholson Nicholson Junior. Mr Nicholson. Could you give me your? Number please Sir Reggie got the chance to ask to be considered to be released from prison one day. Even though he was told, this would never be a possibility, but here he is before April board about to make his case. You recognize these folks. Asserts mom this. Magadan okay great they've this was in February. We were able to be there for this. For Reggie's parole hearing his whole family showed up off my dad. Also I didn't see this big back. That's my day her. For All in small conference room at a prison in Oklahoma City. Reggie's the only one appearing by video screen. Nicholson. Would you raise your right hand, please? Swear the testimony you will be before the board will be the true. This hearing was almost impossible to imagine twenty years ago and Reggie didn't get this opportunity because his case stood out. It didn't standout. Reggie dot before this board, because lawmaker said maybe we went too far, not just with Reggie with a lot of people.

How to Sell to Crack Into All the Government Spending

"I hope found this company called gump spin we help companies Celta government. We actually help. Government DO BUSINESS WITH COMPANIES. We kinda work on both sides of the street. I started my career in the DC area actually started my career as a civilian working for the navy so actually helped government process. Actually something unique. I actually helped sell F. Eighteen fighter jets two. Us Navy into some international Countries at that point really grew that experiencing to last twenty five years really helping again companies either. Sell the government or helping the governor of process extreme line Spent most of my career and currently of a suitable Proto virus time. You know we have been exploding. It certainly very hot topic while the money. The government's putting into spending by the only the only illumination spending more money here currently so we really the knicks just exploding less of a week. So what does government spend? Do exactly sure so a governor. We wish started many years ago. Ten years ago I had a prior company. We saw with the laptops. The police cars are sold to the government that was my most recent gates selling directly to the government and during that time for a of times you can sell the government. Sometimes the process doesn't make sense right. You're like why did he do man what happened but we found out. It's like the old saying years ago. Follow the money right and so what we started do. At the end of that company we started to gather the purchase orders from government agencies. Work with what we found as we started to gather that for our own company it was super insightful. So for example. Hey if you saw company work with a company nine. A few solid agency weren't company for nine straight year nine or ten straight years. The chances you're gonNA come in and displace them is really small. If you saw an agency use a new vendor every two years of a much better shot at that contract right makes total sense but we as outsiders. We don't know that when we were doing business so reason I'll tell you that would go spend started to do many many years ago. Is We gather all the purchase orders from government agencies? We GO GOVERNMENT TO EIGHT GOVERNMENT AGENCY GOVERNMENT AGENCY FEDERAL STATE LOCAL. Gather all their purchase orders. And we put in this online database or folks can query just like Google. You sell widgets you can go online. It's it's amazing you can see. Every government agency buys a widget. You could see who they're buying from and what they pay. It is eating in the world of kind of government sales. So that's where we started. We blossomed into a variety of things. But that's the core of what Gulf spend does super unique patented by US. Just amazing ride last several years at. And how do you process all those purchase orders and what form do you? GimMe GonNa pdf format or you can imagine. It's all over the map rights and there's ninety thousand plus government agencies. I would say like I'm in a room with people. Say Write Down Your name address. Telephone number social security number. You know some of the information if I asked ten people do what they all do it differently right at all someone ready to on the line somewhat stacking someone put their own over the Franchisee. Someone's issues dashes someone as a commander with ninety thousand government agencies. They all do it completely different. So one of the things that makes us turn and burn a proprietary piece of software. We get the foul from government agencies. They come in every format you name it from Seattle electronically try to obviously get digital. And so we have a piece of software similar to ingest that information it's able to Parse it out and then we put it up in our database with make aquarium on about twenty four hours. So it's it's a huge set of data. It's about you folks a sense. It's about two hundred fifty times the size of Wikipedia. So it's a normal database but that's the thing that makes churning Burns's piece of software in about ten years so I see from your history. You sold the company to lexis-nexis this sounds a lot like what Lexis nexis does for lawyers through. It's really interesting. That was some of the impotence of this solution so we were again. We were at the time selling the public safety agencies again. We have this mostly substance. They have a laptop car life. A ten point fifteen years ago. That was very very unique so we help that marketing. Kinda grow right prior to that kind of singing. Hey how does this data and make it more scalable? How DO WE HELP? More people use it because we were we kind of use it in our own functioning of our company. That's exactly what we're looking at the net lexus. Next model how they use the data and kind of use that insurance where the government market so very very announce

Stacey Abrams Spearheads Campaign Against Voter Suppression

"It's morning edition from NPR news I'm David green and I may tell Martin after the chaos of the Iowa caucuses there is new scrutiny about how the US conducts selections when you partisan voting rights group is focusing on elections in swing states this year it's called fair fight and it's led by Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams Abrams got a lot of national attention in two thousand eighteen after she lost a close race for governor in an election that was clouded by allegations of voter suppression here's an here's Debbie Elliot a few thousand volunteers are spending a Saturday morning in a hotel conference room in Macon Georgia for a boot camp of sorts on voter suppression good morning in everybody Hillary Holly is organizing director for fair fight action the group that's waging a campaign against voter suppression in the twenty twenty election we are walking into year that's going to be exciting little bit stressful we're gonna be working a lot participants call themselves democracy warriors people like whole worker of lane Morgan Johnson make every single cam Johnson is motivated to be here in part because her sister was removed from George's voter rolls under a mass purge of people who have not voted since two thousand twelve or responded to mailed notices from election officials Johnson thinks it's part of a broader strategy to curtail voting rights reducing their opposition don't wanna lose power I mean we're seeing that nation why it's depressing and that's why I'm just trying to be active in a way that I can my parents worked for civil rights in and we're not for going backwards this training is part of an effort launched by Georgia Democrats Stacey Abrams an African American woman who broke new ground in our two thousand eighteen campaign for governor she energized new democratic voters and lost by less than fifty five thousand votes in a largely Republican state there was a record turnout for a mid term election but also hours long waits at some polls election server security breaches and allegations that strict adherence on signature matches dampens participation Abrams says the defeat galvanized her to launch fair fight in the wake of the election my mission was to figure out what works could I do even if I didn't have the title of governor what what can I do to enhance to protect our democracy because the voting rights is the the pinnacle power in our country verified is training grassroots advocates lobbying for new election laws and arguing in federal court the George's election system is unconstitutional Abrams says long lines precinct closures and purging voter rolls are all barriers that disproportionately impact minority voters most of us understand voter suppression as the nineteen sixties images of Billy clubs and hoses and dogs barking aggressive interference but in the twenty first century voter suppression looks like administrative errors it looks like user error it looks like mistakes but it is just is intentional and just as insidious George's current secretary of state Republican Brad wraps and Parker acknowledges there were some problems because of the high turnout in two thousand eighteen but rejects the notion that cleaning up voter rolls is an attempt to gain partisan advantage no what we're trying to do is make sure that the you know Lexus are clean fair and accurate this is something that has been going on in Georgia long before Republicans were in charge in Georgia and courts have upheld the state's authority to purge the voter last after fair fight suit but other election related lawsuits are pending attorney Jack Evans is chairman of the Georgia chapter of the Republican National lawyers association Georgia is ground zero for election law Evans says the focus is here because Georgia is becoming competitive the reality is you know George's changing and there's a lot of transplants coming in from the west coast and the northeast and there's also changing demographics so I think it is time for Republicans to grow the tent but I definitely think it's woke up a lot of Republicans in Georgia now Abrams is expanding fair fight to reach in hopes of putting other states in play she recently traveled to Florida for a town hall with college students to talk about ways they could protect their vote for verifying voter registration for learning how to ask for a provisional ballot if you're turned away at the polls political scientist Andrea Glaspie of Emory University says there are a lot of national groups doing voting rights work but fair fight stands out because it's been able to use the energy around Abrams electoral defeat to try to reap benefits for other Democrats in this election cycle her story was compelling she got a lot of attention by being the first black woman to be nominated by a major party for gubernatorial seat and she was really smart and you know strike while the iron was hot in order to play that type of organization together fair fights political action committee is raising the millions of dollars including a five million dollar contribution from democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg and it's pumping some of that money into battle ground states early fair fight C. E. L.

We're going to do. I was going to go back to Utah fight it. Whether we should mention that I got pulled over last night. If it's I've been pulled over in. Here's like four years probably since I've got pulled over then got pulled over last night for allegedly doing eighty one to sixty five car the Bill in shorts. I'm trying to do the adventure. Hell acceptance car very recently. That'd be the second to last entry this lesson credence. Basic of maybe it's this joint thing. Let's talk about the engine the engineering behind this thing. Like, why is it? So good. So in the nineteen eighties. Lexus decided to throw a ton of money in a ton of resources and building. Literally, the best investment vehicle in the world. And they put I what I believe. In was I think it was over billion dollars at the time, which was the most money ever invested into a new vehicle. They really wanted to establish themselves in the marketplace with something spectacular. They had you know, all these crazy benchmarks and. They had their their production ethos with quality and how the factories of work and stuff that was really enviable five the Americans. And they pretty much just just came out swinging. And you know, my my father had one of these things in ninety two when it was new, and it was extraordinarily. I mean there was you know, nothing like it on the road. It's kind of hard to picture at the moment. But like even something as simple as like the center stack. We're like these gauges which I think are like five or six and on LED's, but it sort of back Backley ghosted almost invisible gauge cluster like that was super future shaded nineteen thousand nine hundred and the you may not know it now from this old one fund when these things were brand new they were they were basically silent. There was no engine noise. There was no wind noise. There was no road noise. It was silent. Almost the way that like was tesla silent was this the campaign with the champagne champagne, and they had you know for. Mostly the champagne glass pyramid on the trunk and those had the car on the hood, and the cardis brand, and you have nothing fell over Klein Sino took it up to one hundred and forty miles an hour. Yeah. Because part of what makes his engine so good is that some of the Technic read is offer competing like years ago. But basically like they took some of the research they had done on building IndyCar engines using I think more silica in the aluminum, and it makes when it heats up it's like a little bit slicker than engine with less silica. So that's part of why it's such a smooth engine just less friction if there's fiction, there's less we're on the rings and all those kinds of things, and it's probably why, you know, the engine's never been open, and we're not bring a ton of oil, you know, with blow by what? Yeah. Also, this being the sort of pinnacle of Toyota overbuilt nece, you think about the two JC was being built at basement to save time as this. Durability was was paramount to mean, even a camera of this period is likely to still be on the road. Yeah. Less knows Japanese cars like late eighties into early ninety. They spent tons of money on because the economy is doing so. Well, while in America, we're building like town cars and just doing lots of cocaine America was like we have all this money..

"With. Is not that bad. Like, if I think about how much it would cost to do that in a lot of other used cars. That's a lot of like, maybe like a perfectly maintained like used civic or something like gonna probably have to buy that car for six of four young considering cars worth exactly what I paid for it. Now, you know what? I mean the net loss of the car purchases zero hundred thousand miles is a lot trap city. Right. Most cars need a huge service at a hundred even civic does there's a lot of like oil and checkups at sixty. Yeah. Well, I don't think that we love in yelich straight. You still are going to have to do like bushings Gallia they'll break on hawks. Like, you know, and the the. Any most parts for this car or not not out of not out of control expensive? Most of the parts are pretty reasonable. Who's only been a couple parts where I was like, oh, come on really like well, someone also have met Washington rape. And they do on the dirt section where they drove it and Anton dirt. So I don't know maybe rally out Washington CD. Yeah. Oh, yeah. I guess it probably is third. It's meant Washington hill-climb. Yeah. That's not good for bushings. If you if you didn't bushings and shocks and drove in Florida where the roads are it would probably be good for several hundred thousand one. Remember what I voting which was from Florida. Yeah. When I bought it. There was spreaders in the coils. So the suspension L all LS four hundred they all look like the Hasas cut of Sagnol time, and that's actually normal which sort of one of my least favorite things, but I don't know if because the springs and shocks completely dead or because the guy before me wanted to change how looks but he actually put spreaders in the coils which held the coil spring open and raise the ride height like three inches. But like you you had like half a shock. Rear end drive, like just dry. Good super weird. Rod power tour. Oh, yeah. The two guys from Lexus. These two Lexus.

"It's still like reasonably quiet. Yup. I mean window seals aren't great, and that's partially because they're old and partially because this car has real shanty peeling like Florida tins on it. And I think that the bad tint is worse than the the window seals. But frankly, I don't care. I mean, we're having a conversation normal volume, and it hit the moves the air around the car will I think they had some of the design language was meant to do that like it has a little fins right by the headlights. You know, I was like it's been for aero and channel air around the car. I totally wrong. To be making that up maybe that up. But it's a weird thing to see on a car. It's like why would it be there? You know, let's see things that work climate control works power sunroof windows doors. Locked small work power seat belt adjusters work, the sixties changer. That's in the second. Book box words tape deck. Only plays out of one side for some reason. True, but the FM AM FM radio CD player work the power attend does not really work. No. But it does still get he thinks it's just not up here. But after how many warnings from car wash operators that it was going to like get broken off in one hundred thousand miles and hasn't gone hasn't moved. Well, as durable all the windows work steering steering is reasonably tight, it is increasingly I my phone before didn't. The ride is pretty good. Although the Harsha does sack we have three people in it with in a law just came here. Like, you know, it definitely take more. She set as tools we want extra fluid from just in case because there's eating a third of a court every intermodal something like that. Yeah. So it doesn't really burn oil in the sense that like no it doesn't verbally because like the rings aren't bad like the valves aren't bad like it's not oil is not going into the combustion chamber and being bird. However oil is being leaked from a few different places. One of which I think is the valve covers which leaks onto the headers. And then it goes and that it smells like oil. It's a for for the life of his car with us gone with eating this much oil per this, many miles. Hey must be burning. And then last night, we're stopping the side of highway. We knows there's very light smoker. Coming out the front of the car headlights, smells like oil, and that's bad figured out. Although oil we're losing is not burning out the call out the engine. It's purring on the. Yes, it's from the exhaust with the outside of. Of being recycled before it goes the atmosphere. Yes. So you basically you basically have to add a half a quart of oil every other gas. Which is not that it's bad company miles around it. It's really not add like you could.
