Berger and Berger there around very very good highly recommended anyway if the plant based ones no we don't think so now let's see here anyway so apparently in N. out burger is a good place to work number three DocuSign number two Bain and company and the top spot and the list of best places to work in twenty twenty is a Massachusetts based software company HubSpot HubSpot beat out multinational businesses by investing in employee engagement expanding globally by adding offices in eight countries all while growing a remote workforce HubSpot personally I'd rather work in out burger for the email for the snags I get good perks discounts on burgers seven fifty one right now and Ole let's take this call here's Tom from Willowbrook morning time what's on your mind good morning are you listening to your comments about it out burger I just was in Phoenix visiting my daughter for about three months and they had it in and out burger but what I want to tell you it's kind of interesting to iconic restaurant chains that opened up in Scottsdale one is white castle and the other one is thanks a lot anyway what white castle we know about L. you know the like it well the the reason I I called and said I tried to go there one day to get a hamburger and the line was so damn long wearing in the image it's got stale yeah which yeah and a white castle you talking about yeah white castle opened up in Scottsdale Arizona okay in the line is so long traditionally castle majority of the license plates are Illinois which I thought was hilarious and sure give it a shot down there that's the first time ever down in that particular area well then they'll find out what we know here that white castle tastes better after midnight usually and I remember that very well usually when you're somebody's coming home from some social events or having a drink with the boys or something like that I used to I remember we used to get a bag up for like a dollar that goes way back so you could tell about whole area I haven't been there in a long time but I I would often get the double the double white castle no cheese and and no fries no onion rings just you know maybe I get like four of them and then by after the third one I'd already be regretting what I did and certainly the next day really regretting it thank you to change Bob that opened up that my wife just yelled to me that I had forgotten because it was senior moment first Portillo's they also opened up in Scottsdale Arizona eight years ago and then we are opening their opening in Springfield they announced this all yeah I did read that yeah but the Portillo's thing was interested also in the same week my friend and I told him about Portillo's so we tried to go in there and you couldn't get near the place they end up police are directing traffic it was unbelievable I don't know Z. gal is transplanted Chicagoans out your way out yeah that's exactly what it was all the license plates I I gotta believe about eighty percent of our allies like I said I just want to share those two moments with your choice CNN John show welcome back and keep up the good work we enjoy it thank you and eat well okay well I tried it sounds like you do as well thanks bye it's seven fifty four right now and we'll talk to dean Richards will get his entertainment report after our eight o'clock news and dean's got some information about a Bill Murray son who apparently was arrested in a protest March and what else will we talk to dean about always got and also a bit of a fiery speech at a protest March in London that came from a Star Wars actor so that'll be coming up and Dave I want to talk to you a bit more about this statement that was made by Akeem Hicks of the bears one of one of the few powerful points in his first comments since the killing of George Floyd how do you think management is going to deal with this I mean he basically said they should have signed Colin Capra neck instead of Mike Glennon well I I I'm not sure that he was he was saying that as much as he was saying A. Amin he brought up the Glen and thing yeah but I think it was more why wasn't Colin Capra Nick signed by anybody why did everybody why did the league try to basically stifle him and and ignore the message which now everybody is trying to get that message across and Colin Capra Nick was out there and it took a stand to put his career on the line right now and and and took a lot of heat and which stood at best he could and eventually they came to a settlement so the I think I think that was his point looking here is it here is a guided play because he spoke his mind and quarterbacks of lesser talent were were finding jobs and I think that was that was his point at least the way I heard it but you know this is something that obviously goes well beyond Colin Capra Nick and well beyond drew Brees who is now at the the center of this thing right and you know it's it the bears came out of it seemingly pleased with their exchange of ideas and and their discourse in the other team get together will was called somebody called it on the team said it was life changing while Akeem Hicks said that and and Matt Nagy said it was the most powerful meeting he's ever attended so I mean I think those are pretty strong comments and then you hear some of the stuff coming out of New Orleans and I mentioned this earlier there the trending now is the hashtag drew Brees cancel drew Brees are drew Brees is canceled yeah I mean bad type bad timing having him do you save that yeah I know what it is it's and I I guess if you listen to what he's saying you can understand what his point is but it's just you're ignoring what your team your own teammates are saying to you right and what's going on in the world right now you're you're basically it's it's just a matter of you you've totally mis read the situation yeah he I mean it is is not is not a time for silence on thing but you got to really think before you speak and his gaze and he would've been better off being silent film more on that coming up on the news that's next from the northwestern medicine newsroom it's phase three your business can open but it doesn't we talk to business owners about why they're staying shot even though they don't have to plus outrage over George Floyd on a corporate level how much of it is genuine how much of it is PR talk with us after one o'clock Hey DD perks members in Washington DC now that we're slowly getting back to running make the most of your day with large hot coffee from Dunkin for a dollar forty nine not a DD perks members joined on the Dunkin app today for easy contactless weight order pay pick up in store or the drive through America runs on Dunkin participation.

Dan was it Mike in Livermore California that's right thank you I coast to coast AM might good morning years great got my heart you once again I haven't talked to in years are you will always be your your new year's predictions show the hall yeah what dating I would I would want to project out there yeah you know it's so funny I I I I I loved it like just real quick because not everybody may not know so there was a time when R. did the two years the prediction show and then he got tired of doing it and so he's not too so that's how I ended up doing it for a while until you know George took over and I had it I got to put still play around with it for awhile but I always thought that was funny he still want to or not like I'll do it not a great time I love the what the heck you know what a great job to do yeah Hey I I have some talk about tribalism but I didn't really want to talk to you since you've been back on here again is at the question how do you beat this night is there to talk to personal I've got the whole wasn't technical or no idea I've never beaten it I've never I still suffer from it it's still as loud as it's always been that the differences you learn mental tricks to avoid it but it's it anytime like so and again I'm not this isn't that make not talking about you here because it's a totally fair question but generally I just avoid ever talking about it because to talk about it is to hear it so I've got everybody in my life nobody asked me how's your tonight is today dad nobody we we like we ignore the subject and part of that is called tinnitus retraining therapy and you use these little habitual devices and techniques to keep your brain from hearing the sound and so even on a night like tonight when I get off the air and tonight this will be a little amped up it'll be a little annoyed from wearing headphones for a couple hours and it just gets a little complicated I just go back to the drawing board I use the the same techniques and it works great so if if anybody have you haven't taken a look at it tonight is retraining therapy it takes about a year to master but you'll be glad you did I I totally understand I mean that's what I deal with it hi Norton said that yeah there it is so what and I move on you know it it you know and that's why it's so his by that you know about it because I I know you really didn't want to talk about it before but I thought if you had gone through something chemical or something natural no like that I there's like no there's some chores out there that are coming there are cures coming there and they are still in the initial planning and execution and testing stage so it's more work going on that night yeah exactly exactly but it still works and I it was my wife always said you never listen to me yeah you right exactly which is true where trouble with great job putting that guy we don't need him saying all that stuff he's not in the tribe if this really not about anti semitism or any of that hi to me first but it's not tribalism do not connect yourself fully with the group and make better your identity right are there any individuals yup he and individual even the call or your millennial and talking about music and it's all night you're in the military all listed as well you know what it's it's just the nature of people I'm a boomer which I don't really care I yeah I don't either I'm thinking that because they get my age group but thirteen music was all about what you made me feel good what what their ally your call was done well I don't care what it one right you know I I grew up I'd love Doris Day and rat pack yeah sure I love baseball but I love box yeah you know it's interesting isn't that tribalism thing became very prominent in the because Peter Noone even sort of reference to a little bit started in the seventies where you work hello really allowed there was a period of time where you had to be against disco if you were a rocker and or you if you like rock music you had to hate country and you know there was some of that even within that and I'm glad to see that right now especially with generation Z. there's none of that we do testing you'll be glad to hear that so we we work a lot with figure out generation Z. radio audiences they don't care the origin if they like if they like it they don't care if it's wrapped I don't care if it's a country they don't care they don't care they just if that if I like it I like it and they don't they're not worried about the lines or associating with the genres in that over identification that you speak with you to speak about because I think that's a people over identify with their tribes yes my phone thirty two she loves all the music I love not because I loved it because he just listens and and like that in fact they just gave them something I dug up from oh my god I've been doing some cleaning itself I found an old T. shirt the blues brothers all right Sir white yellow tee shirt and it's Ackroyd Lou she would lose faith of everything else the number that you want to go all year it's great I love that well I appreciate that and thank you and I I would say I would say in the interest of intellectual fairness tribalism being anti tribal goes out the window during the football season but other than that I'm good so I mean I can't tell if I'm still very tribal if we ever play football again L. as in LA west of the Rockies on coast to coast AM bill and thank Hey by the way I was thinking don't you think and it would be great on Conan o'brien's recliner of rage this yes I'll leave it up to you to make the introductions but I think that because I think people love it I think he would love her of the that's great I think either by the pack of paper clips and discover their only forty nine since you know you got a leg she knows exactly what she wants to say she had belly is up to the Mike every time she gets it done and so at least that parts good wait where are you going to take us well it's a terrible thing tonight I was thinking you might want to play a new game I designed for pop music aficionados with maybe too many college degrees postdoc rock okay how do we play I give you a high person syllabic title and you tell me the real name of the song and I know you will know the I don't know I I don't always do well with these but try me I love the concept you're you're the guy for that okay this site near your fusion source approaches this this because I want to keep this I want to get as many as we can go ahead tell me that one so I can we can move on from here comes the sun well yeah okay fine thank you exactly all right I was going with Tom with approaches when I couldn't get it out of reverse order so guy go ahead give me another one occupy yourself with a subjective preference I'm never gonna do these in real time but if I sat down with the might have thought of the go ahead what's the answer do what you like I love the I can't hide it with a DJ in Santa Barbara and he got most of them that's great the W. you I mean you do not even appear to dictate a cold but no no no no it's totally fair and I don't mind exposing my limitations on that I think that's a really funny idea and I like it I have to I have to get my mind around it when I don't have twenty other things in front of me when I'm trying to balance out but I love that that's really cool keep doing that you've got to keep it's got a key word if you listen I think you'll get it the entire population excluding the simian companion and its associate obfuscate at least one item everybody's got something to hide except me and my monkey you got it bro so it's always been my favorite songs anyway so all in there on a victory but one out of three is not bad thank you so much I appreciate that that was a lot of fun treat those out I think they'd be fun to send that around don is in canton Ohio on coast to coast done rather easy on happy Sabbath into you Hey I tell you what just about something or other of these guys he wanted to get your opinion on the a parallel universe the experiments are going on in an article with NASA's Anita experiment it was a basically on on neutron detector yeah neutrino detector but before I do that I want to comment you because ran an article about a Spanish TV or film crew in Rome women in the background is huge are you up for passes by and I tried to access the video once again and was taken down over copyright infringements interesting yeah but the since you said that you are full of the seed all in on the end yeah the Saudis I've never seen a blue Siegel before trying to streamline the two hundred miles an hour yeah yeah I don't know about that but that is you know it is interesting to see so like a just a side note that's not unusual that videos get pulled down for copyright infringement and what often happens is that somebody doesn't realize what they have so they send it out and suddenly they looked only went home I got I got two million hits I better own this thing they go to other uncle Bob was a lawyer the next you know the saying pull it down copyright it that people have to license it if they're going to use it and what they find afterwards after the license it nobody plays that nobody does but again we can only see it on coast to coast all interesting yeah it's getting back to this yeah you know experiment and that now they have an array of radio antennas and they have them on helium balloons have a bond a hundred thousand more than a hundred thousand feet above the ice in effect being a high energy particles in the tree house now under Trudeau's pass through solid objects nobody really noticed them and about you know a hundred for your mom passed your body every second additionally giving hints from a different direction I guess once the neutrinos hit like inanimate put out a shower particles that scientists can you know tracked the you know the trajectory masked masing science but they detected the Trina was coming from the earth's interior well that's so introspective on by a poll I guess maybe that also speaks to the fact that we we still don't fully understand our own electromagnetic properties on our planet and you're in for people who are missing what we're talking about there's an article at heavy dot com I don't know how long ago it was but it.

Federal Researchers Create 'Second Skin' to Shield Against Biological Threats

"Federal researchers are creating a second skin to use to shield against biological threats I am very fascinated with us so this was at at Lawrence Livermore national level oratory and it's a team of scientists they've developed a breathable protective smart fabric deemed a second skin that's designed to shield wearers by responding itself to chemical and biological agents researchers from the California based lab together with collaborators from the masses from MIT and US army combat capabilities development command which has a very long name completed the first phase of a project to create cutting edge material this sounds like a super suit from the incredible by the way please tell me that that woman exists and she's in a really a really kick in modern design cave lab and she's like designing the suits the superset styling because that's amazing to me and I would like to meet her so the flags are for despondent by the defense threat reduction agency is Danny all my help this is literally the program may sit down defense threat reduction agency is dynamic mal function material multi function materials for a second skin yeah have fun without on tech so anyway there they said that they're looking at next Gen clothing to provide people with robust protection is it breathable is it like yoga pants I think that's what we all want to know

Interpretable AI in Healthcare

"One of the important areas in which model interpret ability should have an impact. I guess somewhat argue the most important areas in healthcare after all. What good is some black box It's worth something if it's reliable but yeah better than a black box would be a transparent box and while that makes a great pool quote easier said than done. There's also an interesting aside here about interpreting. For whom patient or doctor and my concern is doctor because the last thing I want to patient self diagnosing and getting access to AI tools to essentially make the sort of inferences that you need a guided trained died. Make so in my mind. Successive applied machine learning and healthcare is really about helping the doctors the clinicians the radiologist the people that are operating the machines in interpreting the evidence in doing that sort of thing so surely there's some interesting work specifically on model interpret ability in the context of healthcare right off this week on the show. I speak with Jay theon garage about his recent paper. Calibrating healthcare AI. Towards reliable and interpreted deep. Predictive models. I am I'm a computer scientist at Lawrence livermore national labs and I will descend lights computing division. They're doing research much learning in occupations and I'd asked you on today most notably to discuss your recent paper calibrating healthcare a I told reliability and interpreted deep predictive models. This is right at the intersection of the things we like to get into here. It's interpret ability and M. L. I'm not an expert in healthcare and I know it does take some expertise. Can you tell me a little bit about your background? And how you've learned these two fields and whatever their overlap is so mind. Bagnall might be Watson Mustang. Running on sitting processing may apply Problems in consideration however when. I started working on applying to Real. What problems little more being a fine slob? Vdb typically focus on a bit of scientific applications in which data modeling could be potentially used. And that's where I started. What Lawn Jimbo? Space by medicine Pot and I've been fortunate enough to work with. Us decently stuff while I watch TV in the trade beyond my basic by classes school so I started learning as starbuck along these projects and my awesome does including the ones by the research on other places that I work with there. Being helping me get on top of some of the challenges that he insists and how we could potentially report with some of the tools of your building. General ambition problems to I see a lot of headlines that Bragg for certain problems like maybe it's a radiologist and things like that that algorithms are now achieving these human level performance although when you look a little deeper maybe that's perhaps a stretch. What's your perspective on the current state of the art in Computer Vision? How close are we to that? Human level goal were all seemingly after. I think that's a philosophical question on some level if you actually talked to a doctor down definitely testing which is using human performance. Okay but if you deep down to go to the doctors and house them on both the costs that you really want to help you with many times down to this new the kind of problems back the actual doctors and people who are treating radiated difficult infections business they are looking for is solid really really challenging problems which often cutting the benchmarking statistics typically build the vision community. So this is what happens even though be producing a lot of promise. Infanta building diagnostic tools. They might not be directly. Impacting healthcare has the way of humidity expected. However this conversation study lot of more practitioners of getting volume conversations issues with us. It's not anymore like taken. Automated Published inaudible computer vision and machine learning manuals on doctors. Look at it. So that is changed. So it's means what does happen is defined realistic. Problem actually agreed to have an impact on which is not very easy to do you. Have these awesome cameras. We are looking at on for names but Hollywood. This needs a more fundamental rethinking as to what helped get problems need to be solved which is the actual big challenge for example. The flight me something like a Cobra. Infection which intimate know what gain of data potentially even detected well and sending me thrown into the school. Maybe I saying we need to find a stating congressman beanie to detect things and more importantly. The office can be used in order to gain new insights that they do not more already so in some sense it is going to continue merely being automating to then the future is promising. Couple of the NFC moving. It's not just for making difficult jobs faster but it is also doing tasks that typically hard even for human to solve in a day to business on holding.

Does Mount Diablo Have the Biggest View in the World?

"Okay so we set out to learn if Mount. Diablo is in fact numeral dose on the list of places on Earth where you can see the most land reporter Assault Asana takes a winding road to find out. The mystery of the view from Mount. Diablo is a romantic one steeped in local legend to find out. If it's true I drove to the source itself. Six hundred feet arrive at your destination from the base of the mountain. It takes me about an hour to get to the top. Well took so long. Mount Diablo sits on the eastern edge of the Bay area in Contra Costa County. But you can see. It's double peak pyramid from most spots around the bay at three thousand eight hundred forty nine feet. The mountains view is second to none. Well it's second to one. Maybe we'll find out so the view and you come up. Here is really amazing. How it compares. To Kilimanjaro is up for debate. But I'm kind of partial to the view here from Mount Diablo and I think most people would come pretty amazed by what the view looks like my tour guide today is Sharon Peterson. Mount Diablo state parks interpreter. Which she says means her job is to tell the story of the park. Sharon takes me to the summit's viewing deck. She says the clear day. You can see forty of California's fifty eight counties from here as little as one percent of some of those counties but still this is where we walk out into the wind. I she points West so you can see the Golden Gate Bridge today. You could see both towers with the naked eye and if I give you the binoculars you can probably for sure. She whips them out and there. It is the Golden Gate Bridge Sixty miles away two towers peaking over round top in the Berkeley Hills. That's really really cool. Then we turned north and you can see the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers forming the Delta South. It's a sweeping view of the Diablo range and livermore pleasanton and finally east or through the haze we catch a glimpse of the snow-speckled Sierra rising above the Central Valley over a hundred miles away. And I heard that you can also see Yosemite from here on a clear day you can and with binoculars you can see Sentinel Dome. There is a rumor that you can see half dumb but it's actually blocked by one of the land features in between seeing it for myself. The site is so magnificent so magical that feels like. I'm looking down at a watercolor. The only thing that compares is the view from a plane. Maybe it's possible. The Myth is true. It's absolutely not true. The Mount Diablo has the largest view in the world. Except for Mount Kilimanjaro. Seth Adams is the land conservation director at Save Mount Diablo and he spent a lot of time myth. Busting the Kilimanjaro claim. I never quite believed it. It just didn't have the ring of truth to me because it's a small mountain and common sense would tell you the taller. The mountain the bigger view but considering the myth has been repeated hundreds of times. He says it makes sense. People would believe it. Seth trace the infatuation with Diablo back to the eighteen fifties and sixties when scientists like Hosea Whitney first geologically surveyed the mountain. That's Jose Whitney of Mount Whitney the tallest mountain in the Sierra Nevada. Jose Whitney road. It is believed that there are few if any points on the earth's surface from which so extensive and area maybe seen as from Mount Diablo the whole area thus spread out can hardly be less than forty thousand square. Miles the legend snowballed from there repeated over and over for decades through the end of world. War Two a time when people really start experiencing parks and mountains. Recreationally and Mount. Diablo became a Goto tourist spot. The Kilimanjaro Claims Circulated and travel guides and hiking maps by railroad companies and Auto Associations Even Contra Costa County described it as quote the world's greatest view more territory visible than from any point in the world but as visitors flocked to Diablo for the views entrepreneur side. Chance to make a buck. More than half of Mount Diablo was locked up. Successively by two big real estate land speculators both of them printed brochures by the thousands that includes the claimed amount of having the largest boasting that claim was a smart business. Move for one developer. In nineteen seventeen he had a dream of building. Thousands of homes on Diablo's western flank and those amazing views helped push his agenda forward. Eventually the developer went bankrupt and the deal flopped. But it was too late. The brochures had done their work. Oh you can definitely credit the brochures for spreading the misinformation. But it's just too good acclaim the largest few in the world right and understand that California was a promoter's dream which brings us to another promoter the entrepreneur Walter p frick who hired a publicist to help him spread the rumor. The Mount Diablo had the greatest view on earth especially as he built an eight foot beacon tower known as the eye of Diablo but frick was working with engineers from the standard oil company and they were skeptical. Someone for the first time said come on biggest view in the entire world so after that the nineteen twenty eight standard oil bulletin added a footnote to their brochure except for a point in Africa. Clearly being Mount Kilimanjaro. From their the legend shifted from Mount Diablo having the largest few in the world to the second largest it went on like this until nineteen ninety four when it was officially debunked by an engineer slash mountaineer. Who did the math? His name was Edward Earl but he went by the nickname. Seven point three eight nine zero five six zero nine nine math joke. She said I don't believe this. And so what I'M GONNA do is. I'm going to find the problem. And I'm going to calculate view sheds for lots of other mountains and see how they compare view. Shed is the area visible from a specific vantage point including land or water. Now Remember Whitney speculated Diablo's view shed was about forty thousand square miles but according to earls calculations it's actually between thirteen and twenty one thousand. That might still sound like a lot but from other Taller Mountains. You can see more than three times as much and even for a total non mathematician like me. It kind of makes sense. Mount Kilimanjaro is five times the size of Mount Diablo so diop blow couldn't possibly have a comparable view shed even if it is an isolated peak.

The Biggest Bubble in World History?

The Biggest Bubble in World History?

"The rant. This week is continuation of last week. Okay what i've done here is. I've added kind of another chapter to the story story so last week. I talked to you about the way that wall street turns conservative investment vehicles into pure toxic waste is what i'm calling colleague and i mentioned two examples right. The investment trusts starting in the late nineteenth century ending in the nineteen twenty nine crash and the u._s. thirty year mortgage around the time of the financial crisis. You know maybe from around two thousand two through just say two thousand nine this week. I wanna talk a little bit about mutual funds in that same light okay and the story begins with something called the prudent prudent man ruling of eighteen thirty. We're getting in the weeds here folks. There's a lot of material here all right so the prudent man fiduciary the tradition in american well in american law and in american finance goes back couple of hundred years before the nineteen sixties when when and mutual funds kind of blew up in the way that i'm about to describe but there was this one particular decision in eighteen thirty in a case called harvard college versus amory sorry you can google that and and learn the details of that amac and talk about just mention the a quote from the decision that was made at that time so so here's the quote from a decision which outlined the prudent man rule okay so these are the words of judge samuel putnam in eighteen eighteen thirty quote all that can be required of a trustee is that he shall conduct himself faithfully and exercise a sound discretion and he is to observe how men of prudence discretion and intelligence manage their own affairs not in regard to speculation but in regard to the permanent ah position of their funds considering the probable income as well as the probable safety of the capital to be invested and quote. That's a lot of that's a lot of stuff there but the salient points are prudence discretion intelligence probable income probable safety of the capital title so this is what's known as the prudent man rule it still alive today though you'd probably be hard pressed to find very many true practitioners. The decision was made in a boston court. Okay it became the ruling principle of among others a whole class of money managers that will called the yankee trustees they were the living essence of the prudent man rule and they viewed the avoidance of losses as more important than achieving leaving gains right very conservative so in boston almost one hundred years after the prudent man ruling the first open ended mutual fund was created in nineteen twenty four and it was very much a product of the trustee culture right people who took care of trusts and were these the yankee trustees who used the man ruin invested very conservatively it was called the massachusetts investors trust and it was different because it didn't have a fixed the number of shares like all the funds before it it's sold shares to the public based on demand and investors could sell them right back to the company at whatever the current price was right. That's an open and mutual fund as we know today so as a product of the boston prudent man culture it was so conservatively run it came out in nineteen twenty four right just when the twenties were kinda getting getting cooking and it was seen as being out of step with the times sort of like warren buffett in nineteen ninety nine fine and you know it it did all kinds of things issued detailed quarterly reports listing all of its holdings and transactions and costs that was the exact opposite visit policy of at that time the the new investment trusts of the era which refused tell investors what was in them in turn out as we said last week to be toxic waste okay now you fast forward a little bit you go nineteen forty-three edward crosby johnson. The second is a lawyer who takes over the fidelity fund and fidelity right. The company knows fidelity. It's got like two and a half trillion of assets under management today well. He took over this boston. Mutual fund operation called fidelity fidelity at the time. They managed three million bucks. It was hardly anything that was even a small amount of that time in nineteen forty three now in his book the gogo years author author john brooks noted of that event quote the man who turned the fidelity organization over to him refuse to take nickel for it in keeping with the traditional boston austin concept of a trusteeship as a sacred charge rather than a vested interest to be bought and sold and quote brooks looks continued the notion of a mutual fund as a trust was deeply ingrained in state street sort of like wall street and boston deeply ingrained in stay street st st st at that time and would remain so until about nineteen fifty five in quote so the laws governing mutual funds and trust were different but until the the mid fifties according to brooks mutual funds felt like trusts right it wasn't seen as an opportunity to get rich speculating with other people's money far from it. It was a sacred charge so but johnson you know eventually. He left those old conservative ways behind. It's a necessary step in solving the toxic waste. He was a fan of jesse. Livermore johnson love jesse livermore. That's what got him interested in. The stock market to begin with of course livermore was the famous trader who made lost i i if i'm not mistaken for fortune speculating on stocks you know including in the twenties and eventually shot himself in the head nineteen forty in the cloakroom grooming sherry netherlands hotel in new york so with his one transaction of taking over the fidelity fund the old conservative way of the yankee trustee was kinda taken out back and shot in the head johnson grew the business by trading stocks okay now the dow rose about one hundred and fifty percent between nineteen forty-three the year he took over and nineteen fifty two the year johnson met a man named gerald cy who's a chinese fellow his last name aside t._s._a. Sign was born in shanghai china in nineteen. Twenty eight came to the u._s. In nineteen forty seven to go to college got a bachelor master's degree from boston in university and stuck around so these guys met nineteen fifty two and they were both inclined more towards market timing and rapid-fire trading in large positions positions you know no diversification long-term view neither had a trace of the prudent man in him johnson. Let size start his own fund in nineteen fifty seven the fidelity capital fund. I'm sorry i left outside went to work for johnson when they met okay and he started his own fund in nineteen fifty seven the fidelity eddie capital fund from nineteen fifty eight to nineteen sixty five the fund return two hundred ninety six percent according to john moguls forward to a book called super money by adam smith breath aka george goodman good book. You should read those those adam smith books along the way si- had to deal with the crash nineteen sixty two that year the dow jones average fell twenty seven percent and most of the downward move which was really from kind of january first until june twenty six of that year most of that downward and move happened in two months between april twenty fourth june twenty six with a drop of twenty two and a half percent so is short and sharp and kind of brutal john brooks. It's not how well the mutual fund industry weathered the storm quote the great rising giant of american finance the mutual fund industry had come out with honors cash chevy still conservatively managed in the prudent fiduciary tradition the funds had bought unbalancing the falling market of monday and had sold on balance and the rising market of thursday day thus besides protecting their shareholders from excessive risk. They had perhaps actually done something to stabilize the market and quote. Apparently there's one particularly if you look at the chart of that time there's one particular week those pretty brutal right around the time it bottomed out and i think that's what he's talking about. Their size fidelity capital fund was down by may of that year but he recovered and the fun rose sixty eight percent in the last three months of the year okay so a few years later nineteen sixty five big year for gerald outside that year has fun was up almost fifty percent of course the turnover one hundred twenty percent right so turnover of one hundred percent means. You held everything for a year. Basically like you sold every share you bought that year so he sold one hundred twenty percent implies and even shorter period right so one hundred percent turnover would be if you bought on january first sold on december thirty first every share and this one hundred twenty percent is like i don't i don't know maybe he sold it all by by november. Let's just say but really what what happened was. He's just constantly turning over daily by then by nineteen nineteen sixty-five gerald saone twenty percent of fidelity instead of picking is his successor to run fidelity et johnson picked his son ned johnson then who actually was a pretty good stock quicker to write in a bull market. Everybody looks good. Silence fidelity immediately started his own fund called the manhattan fund. It started with around two hundred forty seven million in assets the quote the biggest offering an investment company history end quote according to the new york times by mid sixty st eight. It had five hundred sixty million bucks in it. The fun didn't do so well that year though and si- sold his company to c._n._a. Financial corporation regime for thirty million. He got out of the top pretty smart a year later. It fell ninety percent that was closed <hes> so by december thirty thirty one thousand nine hundred seventy four near the bottom of brutal bear market. The manhattan fund had these single worst eight year track record of any existing fund at the time accumulative would've loss of seventy percent of all the capital that had gone into it while manhattan fund wasn't the only one there were other kind of gogo funds of the year. I remember one called. The enterprise fund was up like six hundred percent at the top and down by more than half or so at the bottom but cy was the most famous money manager of time he was really the first kind of celebrity financial major financial guy he would later lie to an institutional investor magazine interviewer when he said quote we had one bad year in nineteen sixty eight night been killed in the press ever since. I don't think it's fair dr and quote one bad year. How about the worst eight years ever at that time size gruden end there. He later worked for an insurance company that bought american can a tin can manufacturer and he turned that business into a financial services company called primerica. You may have heard of it primerica which he sold to a guy named sanford weill in nineteen eighty eight. It's the company that became came city group okay short short story there from primerica to citi group so you know size fingerprints are still on american finance today so that's the short version of how ed johnson and even more so gerald cy turn mutual funds you know this thing born out of the conservative a bit of boston yankee trustee culture into they turned it into toxic wastes into these rapid fire trading vehicles in in in the nineteen fifties and sixties so mutual funds began life in america as a conservatively managed sacred dacre charge of the prudent man the yankee trustee and they ended up as the new gogo mutual funds of gerald site irritating huge positions in highly speculative stocks trading in and out quickly and size manhattan fund was just the most famous and most disastrous example but there there were others said and you know they took these huge positions they weren't diversified and the brokers hated it but they couldn't not do it. Because <hes> you know cy was a big deal. He was the biggest thing in finance at that time that two hundred and forty seven million deal right that was the biggest deal is like fifteen percent of all the offerings that year in mutual fund so you know it was the brokers had to deal with them. They had to play along with these huge positions that he was taking even though they didn't like it because it looked dangerous to them <hes> and trade in out very quickly. It's just like the investment trust of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and it's just like what they did into the thirty year mortgage with mortgage-backed securities and c._d._o.'s in the housing bubbles it housing bubble singular really have one of those wall street takes these conservative vehicles and turns them into toxic waste. Every year is a little bit different. Every bubble has its own characteristics characteristics and course today. What are we seeing today the very biggest bubble in the history of the world the global bond bubble label featuring at last count according to data compiled on bloomberg. They keep track of it. If you have bloomberg you can you can log in and get the latest chart art of the world's negative yielding debt. It's over sixteen trillion about sixteen point four trillion according to bloomberg it's insane. It can't end well. These things things never ever ever do the thing that worries me about this and of course i have to give credit where it's due wall street had less to do with this than central bank central banks did this when this on them of course they're clearly taking a page. I don't know did wall street. Take a page from them. Wall street was around before central banks right so <hes> at least before the federal reserve's early so i think we we have to say that <hes> the central banks take a page from wall street and turned you know the conservative -servative thing most of the negative yielding data sovereign debt and they've turned it into toxic waste guaranteed to lose you money if you hold it to maturity pretty insane insane. That's the rant for this week if you liked it or didn't like it or have a question or a comment right into feedback back at investor our dot com.

"Sacramento Livermore and Gil right he is of morning show continues now with Brian Sussman well I guess you could say this is where the media is going to go with the testimony former special counsel Robert Muller testified before the house Judiciary Committee right now we're dipping in and out of the conversation but it's it's just so predictable but here's here's where the Democrats are going to be this is what they're going to be keeping close to their vest this morning actually that close to the very close to their heart and they'll spew it out every chance they get you just heard former special counsel Muller basically torpedoing two of tribes favorite lines in his congressional testimony I'd never asked Muller fat Jerry as nat fat Jerry Nadler as well or if it was true that his Russian investigation report did not clear the president of obstruction of justice and Muller answered correct it is not what the reports at and then Nadler said what about total exoneration did you actually totally exonerate the president and Miller said no so this is where the Democrats are going to be staying for the next you know you got two and a half more hours of this of the house and then a couple hours the Senate that's where they're going to be staying that's where all the questions are going to be coming from and this is nothing new this is just it this is exactly where we were as soon as that four hundred forty eight page report was really so there's not gonna be anything new here there's going to be enough fuel for the fire for the leftist media continue to say that trump colluded with Russia that trips a criminal should be impeached this that's that's all I just summed it all up that's it that is it so we can move on I'd really like to at this point in time go to trump's Twitter feed I know that he is going off as Katie likes to say so let's go ahead and go there right now and see just how he's quote unquote going off he's been added this morning okay let's see here Donald Trump here's the man it's been reported that Robert Muller is saying he did not apply an interview for the job of the FBI director the day before he was wrongfully appointed special counsel hope he doesn't say that under oath as we have numerous witnesses to the interview including the vice president has states okay I haven't heard this what it's been reported that Robert Muller is saying that he did not apply an interview for the job of FBI director and get turned down the day before he was wrongfully appointed special counsel I hope he doesn't say that a growth in that we have numerous witnesses to the interview so it's interesting the trump administration had interviewed him for the job of FBI director question mark set which from saying here and it sounds like it now how will the Democrats use that against it will say will say tribe wanted him to be the F. B. I. director and instead he was appointed special counsel so he has a certain affinity for Donald Trump because Donald Trump respects his efforts and wanted to make him the FBI director but instead he was special counsel so he was treating from favorably in this report that's probably where they'll go with this that makes sense yeah otherwise you can have all the word in by him to be honest yeah and often times his tweets are worded kind of in a peculiar sort of way you know there is there are a lot of people who say that if you properly decipher the trump true tweets you'll be reading kind of a code a code and quite frankly whether purposefully or not I believe it because when you decide for the sweets we do a lot of times will sit back and we'll go through them word by word and he's we've called in the maestro he's manipulating and I think it's brilliant he's he's manipulating these leftist dogs of the media and he's saying things to his most his his most faithful followers that that give us cause to realize he's he's not the dumb guy that the left thinks he is I'm just telling you if you read the tweets carefully because he tweets so much and there's always a pattern to everything that he's tweeting there's a start and a finish every morning so let's begin with the start from this morning if you don't mind okay this is two hours ago so Democrats and others can illegally fabricated crime trying to pin it on a very innocent president and when he fights back against this illegal if treasonous act in a country they call it obstruction wrong why didn't Robert Muller investigate the investigators okay that's his first little question next it was never agree that Robert Muller could use one of his many Democrat never Trumper lawyers to sit next to him and help him with the answers this was specifically not agreed to and I would never have agreed to it greatest which cut in history by far so what trump is talking about is there's a guy that's being allowed to sit next to Robert Muller to help him with any facts that he can't recall trump doesn't like the fact that this guy's there it would seem from this tweet but remember he and this guy is known to be a never Trumper but he's also known to be a conservative so if you're a conservative never Trumper I think the last thing you want is for the Democrats to win you're not going to give them you're not going to give them the crap that they desire US I I think having this guy there's probably if they stick just to the facts of what's in this report and don't miss speak the Democrats are never going to get what they want is going to be cogent collusion obstruction obstruction yeah we know it's not the report but collusion collusion obstruction obstruction I'd love to hear from you for one five eight zero eight fifty six hundred here's a piece of work Sheila Jackson Lee speaking now let's hear what she has to say those ten potential instances of obstruction of justice you analyze three elements of the crime of obstruction of justice in obstructive act a nexus between the American official proceeding and corrupt intent is that correct yes you wrote on page one seventy eight volume two in your report about corrupt intent actions by the president in a criminal investigation into his own conduct to protect against personal embarrassment or legal liability would constitute a M.

"In Livermore. And in south San Francisco, San Francisco airport. It's fifty nine degrees. Good morning and welcome to form. I'm Scott Shafer in today for me Kim. Well, summer is just about here officially and that means the risk of wildfires is also upon us last year's devastating fire in paradise. Destroyed ninety percent of the buildings, there are thousands of homes, gone there and in other disaster areas like sonoma's and Mendocino. The question is, what to do now, rebuild homes that are more resistant to fire tougher building codes or just back away from rebuilding altogether. Minimizing the risk of putting homes back in the line of fire. It's an issue is examining as part of our series living with wildfire. And joining us to talk about it is Molly Peterson. First our first guest science reporter for QB news mall. You've been exploring this idea of managed retreat what is that? Well, mannered very scientific very scientific Brian watt the other day said it sounded like fencing retreat isn't a word anyone's using related to fire. They're using it related to. Floods in other parts of the country after, you know, after Katrina, we talked a little bit about this, and there's been this transformation, how people respond to these disasters that are periodic right. So because climate change and because people's responses to building infrastructure and responding to climate change are affecting the period city, the frequency of flood and fire and I talked to professor at UC Davis, who says, you know, it's that one two punch when we have disaster after disaster, the people's mindsets begin to change and ask a broader set of questions. So we are just asking questions. We're not suggesting that people need to, you know, immediately be heard it off their land and move. But when you talk about managed retreat, there's a range of solutions you can have moving away from the edge of that, while then urban interface maybe incentivizing people to develop differently examining our whole planning process. So there's a range of things that we can consider now. In california. And when it comes to floods, of course, with rising sea levels if land is under water, you can't build their whereas with a fire risk. It's more kind of future in the future down the road possibility. Right. So you think about it differently. Maybe. Yeah. I mean, there's a professor at UC Santa Barbara max Maurits, who talks about how we map fire hazard. So we've talked about, like the length of flames or the steepness of canyons. We don't always map what are evacuated roots are. How dense the housing is in these places. And if we put both are hazards in vulnerabilities together. We'll have a better picture of what our risk is. And we can understand it and plan for it. And so, at this point, is that just sort of theoretical or are some of these ideas actually being proposed in a way that local communities are thinking about in voting on or talking about and city councils and boards the supervisors? Well, you cover politics so much. So you understand how planning is very much sacrosanct at the local level here in California. There's some discussion governor Newsome was on the job like twelve. Hours in and was talking about, maybe the state gets involved and incentivizes better planning, if we're not going to do it. Well, so it's in the ether are there specific proposals not necessarily bite at the Cal fire level. In the last few years they've done some land use management. Some kind of land use analysis. Right. It's, it's not mandatory they advise local general plans and local general could take this into account. You know what that actually means whether it'll work? We'll say as you said, this idea of command control from Sacramento on down. A lot of resistance to that incentivizing is a nice way to encourage local governments to do, quote unquote the right thing. But is there a reluctance in Sacramento thing to try to impose things that maybe everyone knows should be done to protect not just lives and property? But to stop shelling out all this money for homes that are destroyed time. And again as we get into, you know wildfire season every year. I mean, I think that's more on the table than it has been in the past. We often rely on former fire chiefs to say the very hard things to us. Right. Because the fire chief say, well, yeah, that was a bad idea. Don't build there. There's a guy in Los Angeles, Joe edmonston who's been at the Santa Monica mountains. Conservancy forever in nineteen Ninety-two. He started saying three strikes and maybe don't rebuild where you are. So we're starting to talk about this, that guy max more, it's at UC Santa Barbara, he's talked to local planners, and they will tell him not by name and not for publication that they're worried about what we're doing. And so if people are sounding alarms like that, that's a concern to a certain extent aren't insurance company, sort of doing this for people saying, we're not gonna sure that anymore. Right. And that's often what government people say. Right. Like, look at the private markets making these choices but we can also make these choices differently. When something we know with floods is when you spend one dollar before to mitigate some risk, or plan better, you're saving four to six dollars on the back. End. There's something similar for fire. We're talking about what to do in the face of wildfires and whether or not to rebuild or where to rebuild talking with Molly Peterson science reporter for Katie news. She's been reporting on this as part of our series looking at living with wildfires. Want to bring in some other guests? Right Now, Dan SF is the district manager for the paradise recreation and park district. He joins us from up there and Butte county. Dan, welcome. Warren. Thank you. And also joining us p Parkinson. He's former director of the sonoma's county planning department. Also, former president of California chapter of the American planning association, Parkinson, welcome to you as well. Good morning, and Timothy Ingles be executive director of firefighters United for safety ethics and college. Welcome to you. Thank them up there in Butte county. Let me ask you about what's happening there on the ground. Now, what are people talking about in light of the devastation there in terms of rebuilding? I absolutely fascinating to watch how things have shifted for our community as far as we've had a very well educated for fires in evacuations. But the whole conversation is really going to hold different levels now. And so, you know, I think it's not some some ideas it sat on the shelf in the past. I know that our district, we're looking at concepts of hell parks, can provide buffers protection defensible space for the entire community. But I think what's really interesting about this, and you touched on this day as the scale is not only state national, but there's landowner responsibility and everywhere in between so brought to adequately adapt. And, you know, get used to living in a fire landscape is that we need to have all of those pieces together, you know, lot of well immigrants, excuse me, a lot of people after the fires there moved to. Chico, which saw big spike in population. Is it your sense that people as part of these conversations that are happening thinking, I'm just not going to go back and wanna rebuild? Or are they thinking more? I want to build on the different part, but still basically, the same community. At the numbers shifted a bit. But what I would characterize it as it's, it's basically a third was, you know, set on, on rebuilding and working through that process. Third is is definitely not going to a third of sitting in the middle. And watching it idea that wobbles a little bit as we proceed, what has been very fascinating to me is the town of paradise has sponsored recovery project. So this is getting set an input, and even though we don't have people in, in this zip code right now. Hundreds of people participate in so they've come out from wherever they been relocated right now to provide input on how improve the community. So they're, they're very invested. What happens here. And I think that, that what works in paradise and what solutions we have have implications for the entire state, and, Dan, I think you have a plan to buy up property to create that kind of a buffer. Can you talk about that? What, what's your thinking? Yeah. I it's not just purchase. It could be other agreements or easement type of thing. But I think what's really clear on a lot of these communities that were developed, you know, our roads, the goldrush as far as that the alignment, in many cases, our homes were built and forties, and fifties, and sixties when, you know, smokey bear rules, and we could prevent forest by, and we know that, after, you know, eight years, or more fire suppression that strategy isn't going to work and fires on a different scale and intensity and looking at communities, there are areas that are entirely vulnerable. And we talk about the wildland urban interface in paradise to large extent that wildland urban interface was a wooden chance that was in someone's backyard instead of an area that could be managed for fuels and firebreaks. And frankly, for our community to survive, I think us having recreation backbone community all out to have a sustainable economy, and help pay for some of the, the other efforts on, on land managing side of things. That's Dan SF. He is the district manager the paradise recreation park district. Let me bring in Pete Parkinson now, former director of sonoma's counties planning department, and you recently wrote an article basically Impala, jogging acknowledging that some of the decisions that have been made in by planners were maybe a little shortsighted. Tell us about your thinking. They're sure. Well, let me start by mentioning that. In the October two thousand seventeen fires here in cinema county my family lost her own home. And so we're in the process of rebuilding in this is giving me a really kind of unique perspective on all of this. But the perspective that I think fire protection Asia. And planners in and elected decision makers have taken about land use decisions, and in wildfire hazards areas in the past has been here's a set of standards. We, you know, they call them the fire safe standards in California law, as well as the building code standards for the wildland, interface, here the standards, go ahead and build. We can protect you in these areas. And I think that, that is really turning out to be a fallacy in some areas, because with these wind driven wildfires that have embers going out a mile ahead fire front, and catching additional buildings on fire, which catch more buildings on fire, which then actually catches trees on fire at that point. It's really unrealistic, and we need to be looking a lot harder at where future development goes in the state of California, and I do want to tag onto something. Molly was talking about as the outset about the. Sacrosanct Zach sacrosanct nature of local land use decisions. And while that is true, all of the individual land use decisions about where development goes are made at the local level. It is the state government that really sets the framework for that. And so that's why you see bills in the legislature right now that strengthen the planning requirements and actually have planning mandates, not just advisory guidelines in there for paying much closer attention to wildfire hazards getting very specific about the actions of local governments would take if they're going to continue approving subdivisions in the wildland urban interface area, a very important step forward.

It's now headed to the state Senate, despite bold promises, there seems to be very little progress toward getting Sacramento's, homeless population off the streets, a story in today's Sakhon OB points out that in the six months since mayor Darrell Steinberg asked all eight city council members to find spots for one hundred homeless shelter beds in their districts, and none of open. In addition, the planned opening of a shelter at downtown's capital park hotel has been delayed by at least a month. It has been two years since mayor Steinberg announced a plan to get two thousand homeless off the streets by next year. Steinberg concedes that it's taking longer to open new shelters than he would like, but vows to continue efforts. A new census count of homeless people in Sacramento is due to be released later this month. Steinberg predicts the number will be higher than the three thousand six hundred sixty homeless people found in the last survey, which was done in two thousand seventeen five thirty five or getting you cut up.

"Robot" Delivered End-of-Life News to a Patient, Outraging His Family

"But this has become a national story and the doctor in this particular story delivered end of life news via a robot. So in other words, a little little robot was wheeled into this room, the families present, and there's the doctor essentially on Skype on video giving the family the bad news. Now, the family knew that the doctor was going to have some news regarding the patient, which is their loved one. And it's a seventy eight year old patient and their their hope it. All right. It's it's going to be good. Here's the doc. What what do you have for us? Doc. The doc says the guy's going to die. But the whole thought is really we've come to this point now in life where this end of life news. This is like the biggest news the families ever get a receive about a loved one is he gonna livers you get a die. And you get it over a flat screen with somebody that you can't you can't you can't feel the emotion. There's nothing there. How I'm I'm thinking. How impersonal this has got to stop. If this is the future medicine. We're all screwed. Yeah. What's next? They just going to text them the bad news. I'm serious could be headed in that direction. So here's Julia Livermore, Julie checks in Julie good morning. You're on is vote. Really? Appreciate you checking in. So what do you know about this story? Hi, good morning, everyone. Yeah. So our daughter she was twenty years old at the time in two thousand seventeen and she went into the Kaiser emergency room with what turned out to be a blood clot that was caused from a birth control. So this taking we got transferred up to ICU because her case, associates and. It was horrible that Dr out of he's the one in charge of the whole floor of the ICU. And he ended up telling us that for the evening rounds. They don't have a provider on staff, they either have to call somebody up from the ICU or that robot doctor goes into each room, and the doctor will show up on the screen, and we'll check in with you and see how you're doing. Oh, my jaw is on the floor. Julie. I'm I did not know that this is where we are in the world of medicine today. Yeah. It was horrible. I ended up arguing with them. We wanted to transfer her to a different Kaiser he told her at one point that she should get up and quit acting like a patient, and then when I wanted to transfer her he said, she was too sick to move. I mean, it was. And they had no problem with that robot being the doctor. So I'm thinking to myself, everybody's, you know, well, we get we get this free health care for all obviously in order to control costs. We're going to be seeing a lot more of this. Yes. Oh my goodness. Problem with that. If may I ask how how how did everything work out for your daughter? She's much better. Yep. She it took about a year of committing treatments. And I'm just making sure she was getting proper flu. It's, but yeah, that was that was another thing we showed up in the ER twice. They said she was just fine and ended up that after two days of being there. She she was not she better now. Okay. Gosh, that's again, your emotions when you saw this little contraption roll into the room. And then the screen comes on. It's probably a lot like being on Skype. Maybe exactly Skype. You weren't prepared for that. I mean, your initial reaction had to be this is some kind of a joke. This isn't really happening. Correct. Yes. I mean, my daughter when when they said, Dr robot is coming and she thought that was the doctors last name. And we we literally our jaws dropped. And you know, there were so many other families on the floor at the same time relating their experiences getting news on this on this robot. So when we heard this story, go national on Friday, you know, my first instinct. List to call a reporter. But also, you know, the hospital again. And anyway, I it's a bigger and that was in two thousand seventeen so here we are about two years later. I'm also amazed. They literally call this contraption, Dr robot making even more impersonal. Yes. And you never know which provider, you know, would be on call, but they could be in their car. They could be just finishing up dinner. And then they're making their rounds through this robot that just wheels into each room. My understanding, you know, I see us one of the floors that needs the most care so why they wouldn't have a doctor out of the evenings. Just kind of blew my mind. Julie thanks for checking in we really hope everything works out for your daughter and your family. All right. Thank you so much. There you go. Golly. That's just I can't believe it actually going on well again cost cutting. And it's all these all these liberal do gooders who say, you know, healthcare is a right? So if healthcare is a right. Wouldn't you want the best health care possible? If it's a right. Don't want a robot. I want a person this is my right? But to to get the bad news delivered. And I realized from a technical standpoint, you know, a doctor's looking at charts. Okay. We got this figured out. Yeah. I'll just I'll just Skype it in. We're good. I can Skype her it. I get it. The information is information, but you're dealing with somebody's life. Art of your job is this emotion part of your job. Mr. is to to follow through and deliver this news personally, but it's part of your job description. So here's the deal if that's part of the job description. I agree. It is the system in this particular case Kaiser is taking that out of the doctor's job description. And I can't I I would hope that the doctors aren't happy with this. I would hope so as well. Mean that that like you said it's the most impersonal way to deliver. Terrible news, adding. Yes, yes. That's you know, somebody's life is about to get torn up torn to bits and your Skyping them.

"Now. Perfect. Right. That makes sense and. When you had this realization, how did you like pick tech to get into like, what did you do any kind of research where you looking into other fields? Was there something else that led you to technology? Yeah. For me. It was just taking generous fascinating. At the time to me. I was technology. Consumer like many people in also media entertainment liver fascinating to me. So I was trying to figure out how do I merged the two? How do I get into a field that combines both? And what can I do that area? So so that's really why I went down that path. And yes, there was a ton of research of that that you have to do before you make a leap like I'm happy to get into some of the more concrete steps that if you think that could be helpful. Yeah. Definitely I'd love if you could share some of the steps that you took in making this career change jer. And you know, I I talk about this a lot because we host these round tables and a lot of folks, I talked to who are still finding potentially considering career changes and just generally. So I. I bucket it into five general steps when I think about even my own process, and I would say the first step is really Denno being addressing blockers, and I'll get into a little bit with that is in a second. The second one is developing a solid timeline in plant. That's extremely important. A lot of people don't do that the third. I would say is understanding the tech space people think they know a lot about tech. But you realize you don't if you don't really take time and effort, and then I'd say number four taking the time to research understand roles that existent tech. That's extremely important when you had to go down this journey you need to know what you're looking for. And then I'd say most important last, but not least is networking networking super important to open a buck -tunities in really expose yourself. So I can in Livermore if it helps teach. Yeah. I think you know, some of these things we've talked about on the show before like networking and research. Understanding the different roles in tech. But I would really low if you could talk a bit about like the identifying the blockers, and we definitely talk about timelines and planning, but I would just love to hear like what your time line in plan was when you approach this yester- blockers like I said is the first one, and I think people realize that these exist and a lot of people think about oh, I wanna make this career transition been thinking about it for year have done it yet. But the real question is why and the answer is because you have these blockers and bloggers can be a lot of different things for me personally. It was financial insecurity career, suicide and self doubt. Now, financial insecurity for me was a big one because it was working in finance finance industry. Compensates pretty well was pretty happy financially. But I also wanted to get into the startup space in the starters faces a little different, especially when you go to smaller companies competition structures, very different. It's a little bit more heavily skewed to equity equity ever gonna be worth worth anything. So you're probably gonna. Take a pay cut. That was really scary for me. And that was one of the reasons why when I first started considering making a transition even what to do. 'cause I I don't know. I'm not going to give my salary. I gotta change my lifestyle. So that was a really big one for me. So I had to really think through and think and plan okay, financially, if I taking payco what just do I need to make and for how long can I do it? So that was a big one that I had to really think about address the second one like I said was career suicide. What is this decision? Doesn't work out. What if I I'm not a fit for the company or what if the company fails? What is it going to look like on my resume?.
