"Britain's prime minister starts today with a very different cabinet than he had yesterday on. Peculiarity of british politics is the cabinet reshuffle. A sudden reordering of who's in charge of what in the government this one was. Well telegraphed and members of parliament had been pressing. Boris johnson on. Who shouldn't be in charge of much with all the talk of cabinet. Reshuffle can the prime minister guarantee that the foreign secretary will finally be sucked that any shuffled or does he intend to the world and competence reshuffles serve many purposes rewarding loyalty punishing perceived foolishness and setting or resetting a political agenda but they're messy and embarrassingly public ministers shuffled past the cameras outside downing street toward their new fates expecting a promotion. Knew it might not seem like a great time for such disruption with the country focused on what the pandemic will bring next and on britain's role in the crumbling of afghanistan but the prime minister has plenty of other business still to attend to and now a new team to tackle. It was expected that. Boris johnson would hold reshuffle. He has space to do so. Now and macelroy is a senior editor at the economist. Britain's coming out of the pandemic enough to do something like that. that wouldn't look like distraction. He won a tight vote on tax raising last week to fund the nhs and social care so he feels that he sweeps all before him. And this is the time to clear out some deadwood and makes them promotions. And what is the dead wood. That's been cleared out with the most. Prominent deadwood. That went out was dominic robb brexit. Here a lawyer. He became foreign secretary and went through that role. I think without great distinction. But he did it and then got into terrible trouble. When the fall of kabul happened. He was on holiday with his family and he didn't really appear to respond quickly enough to the urgency. Wherever i think has been surprised by the scale and the pace at which the taliban taken over in afghanistan and that's a lesson that we've all got to learn from but the truth. Boris johnson was embarrassed about that. Big blame game in huge and now he has gone and who has he been replaced by. He's being replaced by liz trust. She's a pretty gregarious on the front foot. International trade minister who has stepped up my message to businesses clear. We're out there. Negotiating trade deals. Our agenda is about unleashing. Britain's full export potential. And i want to see. She's also a brexit here ally and she's been signing off trade deals that bush and desperately needs to show that brexit work and he can make it work differently from that big relationship with the eu. She's also the first female conservative foreign secretary. Jason that's one of the three big officers of stayed in the uk that is sign of boris johnson. Really trying to rebalance this proposition and show that. He's surrounding himself. More with prominent women and the rise of ethnic minorities in the conservative monty and aside from simply clearing out. That would as you say what what. What were the ames here in the reshuffle. Think of this jason. As brexit britain reboot. So it's aims are to get on the front foot to come out of the pandemic looking confident with a team that boris johnson feels that he can say to voters. This is my team. This will deliver things that i promised you. Before the pandemic the big ticket number on that is something called leveling up which basically means keeping those former labor voters in the north and in the midlands who turned conservative very dramatically at the last election keeping them on board offering them something that shows a redistribution of opportunity of wealth of jobs. So that's where boris johnson's old oxford frenemy. Michael grove comes in michael. G-o-v is seen as intellectually highly competent. He's extremely good commons at putting the conservative case. So then how does he help. With the leveling up agenda he becomes sexual state for housing. Housing is very very important in this intergenerational policy agenda that the government knows that they need to push forward. We do urgent need to build more houses for younger voters without annoying older voters preferably in leafy areas. You tents by surprise to be conservative voters. This is an almost impossible task. He also is a native scot. He is also supposed to put together a strategy for helping. Boris johnson sea of scottish independence. And that's something. I think they need to take very seriously. So if the point here was to shuffle things around and get a more competent government. Will it work. Has it worked. Let's see but he has recognized that there was some areas of that needed to be weeded out even if they had been loyal to him in the brexit referendum and the big victim of that is governed williamson as education secretary who is seen to have mishandled a lot of issues that affected schools and the state exams in the last year. And a half or so out. Went govern williamson. I think not only enemies of the conservatives would say yes that was about time to. He's replaced by nadeem. Czar we another of those first appointments of an ethnic minority background person to the role of education secretary. It would be hard to say that competence took a beating the day that govern williamson was out of the job. And what about the the the point to sort of consolidate being ahead a bit to set the stage for policy to To shore up the north. Do you think all of that will come off if you think about that red wool. Boris jones needs to defend to win another election but also to leave his mark on the country to actually achieved. Something beyond getting through cove is then a lot of policy initiatives. Need to be much better. Joined up as for mr johnson. Well it shows that he has that splinter of ice in the soul that makes leader able to sideline in many cases simply get rid of people who've been loyal to him and help make him prime minister and he will be judged on whether what they achieve really makes life better for a lot of people in the uk who had a difficult time behind them also very worried about their own economic futures. I think that's really where this argument will go next. What does it feel like to vote. Voters not so much who got whose job who's up. Who's down. Who's in. And who's out much as i love talking to you about it and thanks very much for joining us always pleasure..

"Make sure you weren't your to me you gotta throw the ball to that guy. Five six seven times a game bare minimum just to take advantage of them improbably even in the double digits. Everything that's going to help set up. This offense as coach nauseous talked a lot about the offensive line. And now the running backs to who's going to be the starting running back or does it even matter with the rams Marcus macelroy Of course david bailey. A john gibbons i mean they they have a they have a nice looking backfield as far as depth kelly. But who's going to get that number one spot you know. I'm really curious to see that. I got a chance to talk to david bailey. This past week after practice. And i know a few observers have told me people that have just come and watch parts of practices here and there say he is the real deal. They think he is got a chance to be something special in this offense this year You know we'll see at that. Everything i watch you know. Macelroy is still kind of getting the number one offense reps but again. We're watching the two minute drill stuff at the end. We're not watching. You know the every practice every play. So i think that Macelroy is probably still sort of the heir apparent but I think that david bailey's got a really good chance to beat them out and win that job from them. And then i think asia bevan's is the guy that's have it they have. He had a really really good spring. And he's got a little bit of breakaway speed. And some stuff that they don't necessarily get with the other to the other two. Were a little bit more big and powerful and asia and gives them a little bit of that That scat back speed that they That they could use. I think they're gonna use all three guys pretty significantly. But i got a hunch that by the end of the season david bailey's gonna one the gonna be the one that's going to have the most carries and most yards. Kelly lyles joining us from the fort collins. Colorado in Where does where does dante right fit into this into this. Mix kelly because you know two years ago we were talking about this continuing Continuation of wide receiver. You warned jackson dante right We'll see what the future holds for warned jackson. Of course just trying to get on. Get on minnesota but dante right. I mean just kind of took us all by storm when he when he started for c. issue. I mean he was. He was a firecracker. But where do you see him fitting on this roster again another guy. they're gonna find ways to give him the ball. I think we might see him. Lineup at tailback occasionally. We're going to see him lineup. In swat back kind of position on and around. You're gonna see quick bubble screens to them and you're going to see them go at times i they're going to have to you. Know steve adagio is made it pretty clear. Job bud myers made it pretty clear the oh coordinates. They understand that..

"Somebody knew something. Yeah i said that right. I said somebody had to know something in this game. However i was still confident enough or lack thereof as far as confidence in colorado state. So here we are. The rams found a way to get it done so many great stories in this one the rushing attack. You know they didn't tear it up necessarily on the ground but they did enough to keep drives going. Marcus macelroy only sixteen carries for twenty yards. But some of those yards. I mean those were hard earned getting first downs. An john evans. I mean fourteen carries for sixty sixty two yards just just. It was a complete team effort. That's why it was so hard to give out a game ball dante. Right one hundred forty six yards key third down conversion late in that game. Now trae mcbride guys going to be in the nfl. I mean question is is going to be a first rounder. Cnbc because he's that good five receptions ninety yards two touchdowns can block as a. That's a picture perfect tight end right there. Twenty six minutes after the hour in a bust out of here a little bit earlier so we can catch up with the rams head coach. Steve adagio first. Let's get the latest on the local sports flash here mornings with gail weekdays. Six to nine in northern colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi k. Cato june all pro linebacker super bowl champion. You listen to thirteen ten. Kfi k thirty one after the hour. Welcome back to the whole show powered by energy. I'm live from the collision specialists studios. And i don't know i think they're still partying over there in fort collins. It was pretty crazy last night. Leaving the stadium here and all the honking horns around fort collins it was. It was a pretty cool experience. You know. it's a strange year for sure but that was pretty special listening to the honking going around joining us now on our i advantage hotline head coach of the colorado state rams steve adagio coach first off. Congratulations on an absolutely huge win over wyoming last night. Thanks appreciate it. It was a great night year and certainly Having a chance to get the boot back and to celebrate that win with our program was Was was fantastic. What does that mean to you coach. Personally i mean as you know you've looked at the history of this of this series of this rivalry and rams fans have been you know in the blues for for several years now against this cowboys team. This is the rivalry. This is that game. You ask most rams fans. This is the one they wanna win. What does that mean to you personally coach. Tom you just fires me up you know. I love the rivalry games in college football. And this is one of the greatest ones out there. And the passion that our fan base our players or program has and the passion that the team up north wyoming. I mean they you know. This'll obviously Further ignite a great rivalry anytime you know. There's it's been lopsided and So this will obviously restoked that. Which is great for college football and they have a heck of a program and we were fortunate enough to play as a team in all three phases and play real physical style of football and get that boot back here which was really a very very important to our program. I was listening to your postgame coach about all three phases. I mean it doesn't get much more. It doesn't get much more proven than that and as defense was rocking offense..

"We. Need the national guards we needed. Spare Co we are killing pay. Dogs. Win. flaky France during the. Time about this crime. That's kick the. Best States of America tonight get a whole team specimens immediately my bestest. Crowd him the crown. And What is that you? One last time record. For years from now. We walk out of here a national champ. I'll tell you this. I expect nothing less important. Keys to the Game Colfax normally I do my keys to the Games to the teams that we cover on a football. Friday. But as you know it is Thursday and the Colorado State Rams are playing. I and you got to get used to the Thursday games. Three more after this one I think next week's Thursday game too so. What I'm looking at this one against Fresno State Fresno state handed to them last week against why I don't know how much you really WanNa take from a Jake Hainer I think is is going to be a decent quarterback for the bulldogs this year we don't know a lot about Colorado state we know about some of their returners we know about Dante right nate Craig Myers trae McBride. Marcus macelroy. Obviously, the big decision was to go with Todd santio today the guy from temple the transfer from temple. He's not like a a runner runner, but he can run he can get outside of the pocket he can move around. So you look at that, you look Cordeiro did for Hawaii. Last week with one, hundred, sixteen yards. Did that have an impact or was it the fact that Patrick? O'Brien missed some time I'm not real sure. But when I look at the keys to victory tonight number one, it's to me it's obvious. Adagio is a running coach his teams run the ball Fresno state gave up three hundred and twenty three yards on the ground. Last week to why Marcus Macelroy Christian hunter key one herndon that freshman might get some action tonight I I'm looking for big games from the running backs and obviously this. Shoe merged, with Boston College. Offensive Line three guys I'm Elisa Johnson Cam, ready and Adam Corey the right guard there. So three guys in that interior part of the offensive line are transferred from Boston College and then bury Wesley on that right tackle side Keith Williams and the left tackle. So I WANNA see this offensive line pushing people around so. You Know Ben them to your will I want to see a forced run game? I don't think that's a big ask because I think Adagio is going to do that regardless. So run the ball stay committed to it. And maybe we have to sacrifice wide receiver you name from now on which Kinda sucks but this is the new. This could be the new rams run run run and we'll see trae mcbride what goes well with a great running game play action to a tight end and trae. McBride had forty five receptions last year, five, hundred, sixty yards, four touchdowns I wanNA see a big game a special night. For McBride, this guy could be a first rounder but seven games to build that resume into the. First round. So looking for a big one there tonight on the defensive side of the ball now Fresno state last week, they threw for about two hundred, eighty, nine yards ran for one hundred, twenty Jay cantor's a decent quarterback. He might be trying to get his tonight Rashad Gye defensive, Backfield Logan Stewart the safety I want to see special games from those guys, Kelly. told us and I kind of agree with them right now, the only special player you have on defense maybe Manny Jones changed that tonight. Start being special in the defensive side of the ball because you haven't been for far too long. Give Rams fans something to cheer about you. WanNa blitz you WANNA take chances get after trust your defensive Backfield Trust Logan Store Trust Shot Gye there you go I like the rams to win tonight. I'm going to go twenty fourteen. In a maybe an ugly game. That'll do it for us. We'll be back at it on a Friday good night northern Colorado..

"I'd love to see their targets. Yeah Day Howard had three receptions on seven targets for forty six yards cody macelroy. So Roy caught one pass. Yeah Cambridge Bright. Had Five targets with only two receptions so are tied Ainsworth even catching it at a fifty percent rate. It's horrible and still after that drive after that night to the chest. That was a tough on. After that punch to the gut the defense still forced to stop yes and gave us the ball back. Great minutes left in what happens. James Winston throws an interception interception. Here's the takeaway. We just went up against the Division leader the AFC went toe to toe with him. Which we've done in a lot of games? Yeah yeah it'll comes to mind and that's what I'm saying we made if you just look at Houston's performance irrespective of the box performance like their offense did circle high flying offense. They're up in the top ten. We're channels running and receiving our team is if you look. Gad's the biggest predictor of if you WANNA get into stats which toll going to throw this out. There supports argument the biggest after sure. The biggest predictor of improvement from one year to the next is the amount of close games one score less and we're having close games against really good team. Yeah so that's a good sign that we're going to do really well next year. I was really impressed with bill. Bryan's coaching tale was pretty good. It was good good. I've always thought for the last few years like he's kind of on the bubble but now I've never been impressed with his coach more skill on his players right. Jj Watt aww there and cloudy Davis wisdom through a interception Peru. Pick six on his first pass. The game was that was too much you can throw interceptions game with the score really hurts us. Don't let them score. That's the problem. That's what really killed us. Had he just got in the interception without the touchdown hours okay. I today undercut on his win. His IPAD. You know he's GonNa do it because let's pick his first fifteen plays as and Janus loves AL route. So he's always got some in. They're always gonNA. Yeah you can count on them and I say this Tamale all the time I mean it makes me furious. You've never throw to the outside outside when you're that close to your end zone effort. It's just asking for picnics and sure enough outside pigs ex. It's like what are you doing. Hello I threw it. Although it wasn't James says worst game. I don't think because we were there. We had every opportunity to win it. We were within three. Oh this this was a shootout we were. We were toe to toe with these guys and we one if we want. I love these where you're like. You know they they want technically better. Hey here's what I'm saying. Here's our excuse me broken hand on a quarterback both of our receivers L. and it's not just like any receivers saw Tennessee. Titans lost their two starters. Neither two of the best receivers in the League if the so he's comfortable with and known for years. How many is were catching balls at Janus didn't play with last year vizier? I'm in high man. And Cody Macelroy. That tight end. John signed this week just just signed him. He goes there and catches a pass. He's got a thirty yards per catch average rejoice in front of all for ten especially. He's at the top of the last two touchdowns right now her was gonna be pigging the famous for the job. I will say that I underestimated their defense. If anything we could say we were wrong about their secondary but I don't think it was their secondary stepped up any more than it just. We had excuses. I mentioned earlier broken hand. Jim's listen was doing some ugly malls they were just overthrows. He couldn't look like he couldn't get a grip on the ball. He was put too much touch on them at times and they were wobbly. What a weird thing on the outside of his gloved to kind of brace it fitting weird you said somebody had the photo show the job? That was their jhom. The graphic they put up. Here's with him spreads but there was no. I don't know anyway look. We're out of the playoffs if anything this helps us as far as draft position is concerned. We don't care about which we don't but if you WanNa make yourself feel better eh. But the bigger thing to me is the fans we garnered this week. A lot of people watching this game when I'm really liked the buccaneers. That's fun football. Yeah A- and might help are getting more prime time games next year. I think so because I do try to gauge you is going to be. WHO's an up and coming coming team? And they will put them on similar primetime game they want eyeballs. It doesn't matter if you're the Cleveland browns. If you're losing every five games or losing five out of four. I don't know there's a math or someone if you're losing a lot of games it doesn't matter if you're entertaining. They WanNa put you on TV because they know people want to watch stuff this one thing with the Patriots Trias Patriots have been dominant for twenty years. They're born to what they are wearing a fourth quarter last five minutes then our exciting usually during during the gamers boring football well. They don't really have that many players who are consistently CNN players like. They're running backs. One running Mac might have a one hundred yard game aiming the next week he barely even plays until you play fantasy football. I never take New England running back for ever ever like Seattle all in Green Bay. I don't take green bay receivers either because Iran gets pissy with them and then stops throwing to hope is. It's the weirdest thing about this game. was there was an an rappaport report that came out. Today that said that the bucks have decided tapering Damis back. Next season is say inside the organization him and Never Dame has to have a game that was not one of his best where he throws the pick-6 immediately. That was a little surprising. I don't know if the national attention or the pressure of being on the national stage is too much for him. I'm yeah I'm throwing that out there. That's one thing that bothered me when we drafted Winston is. He's not good under the spotlight. Yeah he seems to crumble which might be why he does so well on the round not having the yeah the fanfare assure that Bozo. Yeah Ronald Jones forty nine yard run today and I was sweet again one. Yeah you everyone Matt Game with a blocked field goal now that was unfortunate and then he got hit or he went in for the head trying the tag team. Yeah go oh kicker is out there trying to tackle dudes. He didn't look like he took it to you while he was shocked. I tackle he's probably ever made into the line out. The patted handed him on the shoulder. Got So much in this game so much in this game. The fumble forced by Levada. David picked up by Devin like that. And I love that. Devon has has an eye for that did you notice Levante. David has been wearing the green dot on his helmet. I know I sweared Devon White was wearing at the beginning in your yeah. They said they were going to have him on. The Mike was asked about that. Can't wait to hear Bruce. Arians press conference. We haven't heard yet it'll be at the end of the podcast. It's already already been put up a probe into afterwards paranoid. Some of those catches were just some of those incomplete so I was like what are you doing. It bounced right office offers end. Yeah he's your other hand you got two of them but still even after the two interceptions in the blocked field goal. They were only up by seven. The point was ten to three. I was like ops for sure we got this game. I mean if they can only score ten points on two interceptions in a blocked field goal. They were certainly the more discipline team that it'd make any mistake right because right after that Lante David forced fumble picked up by Devin White. Winston threw an interception the very next book right. So it's like we couldn't capitalize on Yeah we can't make a mistake to mistakes and then Barbara fumbled. Oh my gosh convincing him for the rest of the day after now well. It's good to see some consistency as far zachos because they pulled roggio earlier in the year for missing a blitz pick up now. That Payton has had a problem with fumbles but Roselle was definitely more productive more dynamic. That's for sure. Kappa was knocked out in the second quarter for about a series that he came back with about three minutes left. We went into the half thirteen. Thirteen law let crap seventeen seventy yet. I got thirteen thirteen written during more. We need to start calling this instead of the incident. UNCAST that drunk kid. The Star of the fourth quarter. The score was twenty two twenty so it had the second going into the half it had to have been twenty two twenty. Yeah anyhow anyhow the point where we re there's the score right there on. ESPN in the first quarter and they had ten in the second quarter. They had seven seventeen points so that must've been later in the fourth quarter but yeah so we were tied seventeen. Seventeen going into the hands of my point being that the we were toe-to-toe with these guys all the way through this. Yeah despite starting out Ellen. Ten with all the mistakes we we would have just cut down on half the mistake right and immediate pick six and then in another almost pick six. I was called that for a penalty but they still ended scoring off of that but none of them. None of these mistakes. Would you go come on. Not Again Again Winston. All his interceptions right because he still rallied in almost came back up by the second. If Brain Clark that fourth-down impaired we would have probably tied this game minimum minimum foul hurt. You don't expect to drop now so we can't be too mad at him for that and he's he's he's done planning for this team and it wasn't just that mistake but it was a mistake. That kinda sealed it for us and that was that was the play right after Perriman when called beautiful sideline parents. Yeah one of the many he had today coming off the field Janus kind of had the deer in the headlights. Luck and then JP goes out there on defense three facts and just got sacked to stop Il. We got the ball back with About a minute minute one Sunday yes para with another great catch and then Wednesday thousand interception that outright undercut that was just the killed us with that. So you gotta you gotTa applaud him. Whether it was the cornerbacks figured it out or the coaching because it was four. Different defenders Scott.

Persistence of division: after the Berlin Wall

"Tomorrow marks thirty years since the Berlin Wall fell with the Iron Curtain Separating East West Young East Germans dash the last one hundred to the wall and will hold into the West by West German food. They don't come on. The wall was built overnight in nineteen sixty one dividing city and a country in symbolizing a divided continent but three decades ago. There was a change in the air. In East Germany. Revolutions had begun to sweep through central and eastern Europe. Communist rule was beginning thing to come to an end. There was a sense having lived in a pressure cooker not just that year but for a number of years preceding it and I think we all I decided to go on like this and macelroy is a senior editor at the economist in nineteen eighty nine. She was working as a correspondent in East Germany. My the experience that the fall of the Berlin Wall was sitting at a press conference with condition of ski head of the Berlin Party. Who accidentally fall by trying to relax travel restrictions and then saying for immediately so a number of us then rushed to checkpoint Charlie and do other crossing points tried to persuade border guards at the wall was they didn't believe us and then a couple of Acer it was on the evening news and that seemed to who people like a suction from across the city tens of thousands of people to go due to the wall and to stop shouting? Let us cross. Let Us Cross and about eleven o'clock in the evening. The gods was no other advice just gave up an I did that. And that's the way it happened. quickey is sue easy enthusiast. People celebrated celebrated on both sides of the wall some took to it with hammers and shovels tearing it down piece by piece not surprising lots of hugging lots tosses of vodka and we take some with the Berlin Wall in historical significance. WHO's a healing of the scar? God that ran throughout Germany it was a country being slotted back together again but it was also a Europe whole and free. It was about pushing. I'm back together something. It'd been destroyed in that Calamitous War in the twentieth century for those living in East Germany the change was profound and I watch television all night and I was in tears and I just couldn't believe what I saw. I have the feeling something's happening in this year. Of course no idea and no thought that the war would come down. Cornelia Guenter manages our Berlin Bureau who was born in East Germany. My knife has changed enormously many aspects first of all I was able to travel. That was always my wish and in my desire for me it was very very happy thing that has had a very positive impact on my life but not everyone in the east called at the same in his speech last month. German Chancellor Angela Markle who is herself east. Germany said in Ulster. Today must all learn to understand why live from many people in East Germany German unity has not been a solely positive experience. Reunification made successes of some victims of others. Today it's being debated like never before one of the interesting things that's happened in the last few years. Is that large parts of West Germany. How many have started to realize that the way that they look at reunification is not the way many people in the east so retort experienced? It's almost half of West German. Say They consider reunification to have been a success story and the same goes for less than a third of East Germans. Tom nuttal Berlin bureau chief. The speed with which change with brought to East Germany was almost unfathomable if Germany was to be folded into what was a modern market economy like West Germany. Then mass layoffs and deindustrialization the industrialization were inevitable. Because voss way to these Germany was simply uncompetitive with mass privatization of East German companies to bring them into onto the market. That was a union of the currencies that ensured that the East German currency could be exchanged at one to one rate for the West German deutschemark. Moth what that meant is that firms in East Germany. All of a sudden having to pay their workers salaries that they could no longer afford and voss way to them with bust overnight essentially and had to lay their workers off by one estimate. Eighty percent of East German workers at some point in the post reunification years found themselves out of a job. And do you see evidence of that trauma still today. Yes you do you see it. In a small but persistent economic gap wages ages in the east are between eighty to eighty five percent the average of what they are in the West as productivity gap the proportion of large German companies companies that are headquartered in the east is absolutely tiny and then you have things like they call it. The transfer of elite of the sort of upper echelon of public jobs in the East only four percent of them occupied by east.

"macelroy" Discussed on Disruptor, Tales From the Edges of Publishing

"Because you can control more of the engagement, you decide when how and where you're showing up for how much time you know, I agreed to this interview with you. You didn't put me on the spot at a conference. I'm doing it within the comfort of my office. So like there's so many variables that introverts can now control, and you can also decide how to market in a way that befits your strength. So social media, even though it I think, I don't think it's an extroverts tool, it's just that it's often misused in a way that's the Societa d- with extroverted behavior. So when you look at. At what social media, how it actually works. You see that the more you demonstrate curiosity and interest in people, and in the world, the more successful, you are with it introverts excel at demonstrating curiosity, and other people because they're trying to deflect attention away from them. So when we look at how businesses get built over the long term, I think introverts perfectly situated to make that happen. Because I they're going to be controlling the terms of engagement and second, because they are focusing outward if they're doing it. Well, what are the skills that Burgess author entrepreneur should be developing? And we talked by that mist so you can focus on so many things you could focus on emerging technology could focus on marketing, of course, you have to focus on your craft and, and so on. But what are some of the core things that anyone who wants to move forward and publishing right now needs to have, I think early on. You need to figure out. What team is going to be helping you because self publishing as a misnomer in some regard. You can't do a well without the help of some professionals. Most people are not expert editors designers production, people copywriters sales marketing folk, so you need others. And I think there's a process you have to go through to identify who you're going to work well with so and, and also figuring out what help you actually need. So there's that piece. Then there's laying the groundwork for your online presence, and I think there are generally three pieces to that, that are not negotiable. There is the website, your author website. There's some sort of Email marketing components and then probably one social media site that you show up consistently. And so there's a digital literacy that goes that surrounds that. And the more you've already been active online for a number of years using social media in some regard. I think the more you can kind of ramp up and be a little bit more strategic in your choices and how you're showing up over time, if you've totally avoided social media been living in a cave. If you've if you've somehow stayed off Email and never received a marketing message, it's gonna take some time. But usually once you start paying attention to how those people you admire the ones who have like kind of. Already made it. They're already. Often away on on, you know, in the depths of their author entrepreneur career, if you, you can start stealing some of their best practices and figuring out your own methods of engaging, leadership and growing. There's two speaking very broadly from what I've seen there's two ways that authors use social media one is to promote a book. The other is to build a following and create connection among potential readers and I always tell people the latter is one that it's going to work people. Don't responsibly. When you throw up copy of your book on Facebook and say by now ninety nine cents is that still the mall was it still about building a, a following building a community. Connecting with people who are on your wavelength. I think build a following his sometimes even though that's what is happening. I think that's an an intimidating prospect for people who either don't like social media or just don't understand why people would follow them. Especially like so let's back up for a moment. Why might people follow you, well, probably because they've read your worker experienced something that you shared or did like maybe they met you at a conference. So all of the engagement that you have. Typically has to grow out of somebody of work, you're producing in order to be valuable to you on a career level. But if we just if we, if we strip away that strategic part, I think social media, basic basic is just about making impressions over a series of time, so that people don't forget you exist. And they start to associate you with a certain voice, or with certain. Issues. So I think sometimes this gets broken down into a formula like you're going to talk about these three things all the time. It's going to be. Bourbon cats and books. You're never going to deviate, like, sometimes people want that sort of tactical advice with at so that they know exactly what they're going to do. But I think if you're showing up as yourself rather than, as a marketer, you're naturally going to gravitate towards certain things again. And again, so I think that's really all social media is becoming associated with certain things over time, and people remembering you, when or recognizing you as the case may be when there's an opportunity to see a lot of book deals, come out of Twitter, particularly the political room, people that have been out there and talking about things that are going on building that following being kind of sage wisdom, in little two hundred eighty character bites and ice starting to see book deals come out of that. Because for publisher standpoint, if you have five hundred thousand followers s at you release a book into that makes a lot of sense. So I think that's absolutely true of let's, let's change. Here's a little bit and talk about the arc of publishing or get into what's happ. What's going to come in a minute? But it terms of what's happened since you've been falling into this for twenty years and following what's happening. Is there anything that surprised you about technology that either you thought would happen, but didn't or technology that surprised you? I thought we were going to see a lot more from app driven. Reading that was beyond just like a serial. So right now, if you think about how we read an app forum, it's either your traditional e book, like through the kindle app or if it's a little more exciting. It's like a wasp pad sort of app. So you're reading serialized something or other. There's some other like like more professional iterative of that, like cereal box or radish toppis, but, you know, they're kind of a lot of these presentations, are what I consider more on the fringe like there's not that many people, it's not like a mass medium as of yet, X unless you look, maybe at what pad. So I remember this has been back in twenty twelve. There was an app called the silent history that was serialized story, it got pushed out over the course of. Maybe six months, maybe longer, and it was truly felt innovative and special. And I thought there would be so much more to come out of that more stories like that. I also remember an interactive novel. It was it wasn't exactly a choose your own adventure. But it had that kind of aspect to it, and it was like a dystopia and future. It would have done really well today, I think maybe. That didn't take off. It was too soon for the tower the dystopia presentation. And that was another model will, I thought this, this could take off, this could inspire so many other things. But neither of those like when I talk about them now no one knows what in the world, they are like, the it's just the silent history. No one's heard of it, it feels like it reached a very small group of people. So I thought that I hit a hesitate to call it like enhanced e books because it they weren't e books it wasn't necessarily interactive literature. But it was it was taking the novel to another place that was fascinating. And I hope that it comes back of eventually and then during this improve of things it certainly surprised me. And here we are now, part of it is audio becoming such a significant player because it's such an old school technology. If you will mean what, what we're doing today, we could have been doing on the radio fifty years ago. Yeah. And yet there it is. And so maybe it is it is it about case of sometimes the technology. Thirty doesn't match what readers want. Yeah. I've, I mean, audio books, that's not something I could have predicted because I'm not a consumer of audio myself. I don't listen to podcasts. I was never a big radio listener. So to me, I just I missed I missed that coming. It but given the iphone and how we now like if you if you look closely. Yes, the signs were there, but yeah, does it tell you anything about the way people want to consume stories? Because what are they go back to the, the serialized things, I think about the fact that we live in binge society? Right. You want to Netflix puts on a show you could sit there. And watching tire thing all the way through maybe people don't want things. Meet it out. And, and do you think we like the binging? And when I did some research recently for my newsletter on audio one phenomenon I came across is that people who are like, really into audiobooks, who lists who are high volume listener is they're looking for series. They're looking for things that can they can really get lost in. And so that which is no different from me when I'm looking for a Netflix series. You know. So it's pretty interesting. What's let's, let's look toward the next five years. What do you think is, is going to happen? Take your come. Come back. Five years known Seattle, goodness. Let's go back to what pads. I've had so much fun watching the Evelyn of that company, which was founded before the kindle in two thousand six and last week, they announced they're going to do some premium forms of content. The first time that they've ever charged for something on the site because it's one hundred percent free. They do have some ads. So where is that gonna go, and is that going like, is that going to grow and become more interesting over time? I, I hope so I'm seeing a lot of younger writers, who like to go there and basically, learn how to right in front of an audience, you know, they're not going off into their Garrett by themselves to right. They're doing it. They're improving as they go and publishing along the way. So I, I would expect what pad to be more. Maybe more of an influence more of a place that new writers go, and maybe producing stories that are along the lines of what I want to see more of like the silent history. I hope. There's probably going to be a big four instead of a big five publisher environments, I I've consolidation has been predicted for a while now. But I it feels like the next five years that, that could happen. Amazon. I feel like everyone's waiting for the shoe to drop on the self publishing side where they somehow tighten the screws on self publishing authors, and that could take the shape of reducing royalties if you're not exclusive to them, or producing, royalties more, generally because they did that with audible and audio books, some years ago. So why not on e books? So maybe I'll limit myself to those two things, there's things I, I watch, avid latest, you know, always watching the winds blowing for the folks who want to see where the wind is blowing who wanna start really getting digging into the what's happening at staying on top of trans, obviously, I'm going to suggest the be all you, and we'll have your permission in the show, notes who are some other folks, or granted, he's that people should be paying attention to who are really good about bringing you up to speed on. What's going on? Well as side from looking at all the usual trade publications suspects, just for trends like publishers weekly, and the bookseller, and so on when Mike shat skin right something, I always, pay attention. He does a a blog at his website. He's kind of in a semi retirement. So he's not writing as often as they used to, but he talks to a lot of the, the big players in New York. And so, I feel like when he says something about what's happening in traditional publishing. I'm definitely gonna pay attention on the digital marketing, and I always follow Pete McCarthy 'cause he worked for the big five and went entrepreneurial, and now is in Ingram. And I feel like he's always been on the cusp of what's happening on discover ability issues with books both print and e book, I he doesn't blog anymore, but he will occasionally, be on a panel at a conference. And so you might see him surface and each has a good Twitter feed that you can follow. So you can kind of see what he's thinking about that. Macelroy has a blog called the future of publishing. He'll will occasionally do a deep dive on some issues and research things that no one else is looking at and. Looking at bloggers Joanna Penn has a podcast as well that she's often interviewing people in the industry, and people who are experts on very niche, topics, like Facebook advertising, so from, like a tactical nuts and boat bolt standpoint. She's excellent for the Indy author crowd..

Another dance round the May poll: Brexit

"The Briggs it saga rolls on last night to a private meeting of conservative. Members of parliament, the Prime Minister Theresa may made the grandest of gestures she said to have been close to tears. She told them that if they backed her exit deal with the European Union. She would resign. Mrs Maes proposal took two years to hammer out the parliamentarians, including many in her own party have overwhelmingly voted against twice now with her promised to fall on her sword. Some who used to strongly oppose deal are coming on side among them. Former foreign secretary Boris Johnson. Meanwhile, parliament has been considering a series of eight alternative Brexit proposals. In what's known as indicative voting? I can now announce the result of today's recorded bass on missions relating to the United Kingdom's withdraw. It's an effort to determine whether any of them could command a majority in a formal vote. But last night all of them were rejected the is two hundred sixty four the knows two hundred seventy two. So the news habit for month nine threes. Amaze been trying to get her Brexit deal through parliament has been heavily rejected twice by MP's. John Peet is Brexit editor team decided that the best chance. She has persuading them to not change their minds and back is to promise to resign when they for it. And that does seem tempted some conservative MP's over onto her side. But why why should her leaving make it look more palatable to them? Well, the bulk of the opponents to her deal in the conservative party are hotline. Brexit is using it's too soft, and they would quite like to see her go because the who've been to replace somebody more like them and will the ploy work. I mean, the the deal that she still wants to get across the line was thumped badly. Twice is this going to change the calculus? I think the arithmetic is still against Theresa May. I mean, the big hope when she made his announcement was not just that quite a few conservative MP's would come over to side and some of them did including leading members of the European research. Right. Jacob rees-mogg the hardline record here types. The hotline breaks types, many of them have not come over. But what we really needed to to get to marriage to unionists on her side and they announced after her resignation offer. They still were not going to support her deal. Right. And meanwhile, there has been this sort of separate effort to come up with some kind of alternate alternates. Eight of them in fact, and none appeared to get consensus last night. What is the plan b what if MRs may can't get the deal across the line? Well, I think the problem of the big sort of central program for for Westminster's. There's no majority for always anything at the moment. I think the process that MP's have initiated against the government's wishes of saying look we want to find out what kind of deal by the best child's. Is hearing majority will continue all of its last night went down. But some of them were really quite close in particularly one to keep Britain permanently in customs union with the European Union which lost by eight votes compared with her deal, which are the last lost one hundred forty nine days. So I think you'd have to say that the consensus in Westminster is moving towards a slightly different deal that would have permanent customs union. Mrs Maes offer to resign will now start a full blown leadership contest that's been warmer about for months and macelroy. One of our senior editors has been considering the front runners. There's certainly a number of politicians with the lean in Hungary, look for Theresa May's job. And if we start with our own cabinet, you have some people like, Jeremy hunt and savage of it that foreign secretary and home secretary me that go big jobs both of them switched from remain to saying they would deliver Brexit. They did that for number reasons. But one of the big reasons is they want to be able to say to the conservative selectric. I delivered Brexit for you. Then there are those who have perhaps even leaner and hungry. Looks lean doesn't seem quite the right word for Boris Johnson. Little sees this and make this all to stand toll in the whoa. He's a strong Brexit here. A large. Blonde man child who is in musing random often unreliable, and he's made very clear indeed that he sees himself as being the bearer of the crew Brexit here crown, but he hasn't competition, and that is from Michael Google who is very intellectual character Brexit, and the optimal has called strains intentions to be placed on friendships and relationships perhaps on the remain side who feel that they could live with Michael g-o-v more readily than with this huge bombastic figure Boris Johnson. John. It's clear now that Mrs Maes political future is uncertain woulda leadership contests and new leadership perhaps help with getting towards a Brexit resolution or does this only add more chaos to a very chaotic thing. I think at least contests in the lighter departure may just make things complicated. It's not clear that that will help the UK to find a solution that is acceptable base to the conference and more importantly to the rest of the European Union decision to to offer to resign. It's conditional on getting her deal through. So you've deal does not go through. She may rescind her decision and say we'll look to stay around for bit longer. But I think on any analysis she's in a very much weakened position. And most Tarim peace now expected to go if not in in sort of may by the end of the summer in any case. So I think they are beginning to talk about it possible replacements and organizing leadership contest, I won't ask you the difficult. Question of what happens in the long? Term. Whether you think we're any clearer on on the outcome of all this. But what happens in the shorter term, which we expect next. Well, I think MP's will probably continue the prices of trying to win through indicative to see it as an alternative changed version of the brakes at deal might win a majority. The government will continue probably the next few days to sort of lobby hard to see it as a possibility of securing a majority for this is May's own deal that will play out for the next few days. But it's gonna run up against the deadline, which is Europe. Ian union said you have until April the twelve to decide that's already an extended deadline. So the stage after that will be should they extend the deadline further, and I expected there will be an emergency European summit at which there will be another extension. But it probably will be until something like the end of may, and it will be contingent on Britain holding European elections, which will be the process even

Chaos and calculation: Brexit

"Stay. Prime minister. There would be chaos if the United Kingdom were to crash out of the European Union without a proper divorce deal, but after months of widespread worry about that, no deal Brexit. It seems to have been avoided for now. Anyway. Commissioned Mr Speaker, I would like to make statements on the government's work to secure withdrawal agreement that can command the support of this house the deadline to agree a deal with the EU is in just over a month. Prime Minister Theresa may has told parliamentarians that if they don't vote in favor of the agreement she's already negotiated. She will empower them to vote for a delay to Brexit. So the United Kingdom one only leave without a deal on the twenty ninth of March. If there is explicit consent in the house for that outcome. Avoiding no deal scenario is one of the few aspects of Brexit for which there is a strong parliamentary majority that is not the case for Mrs Maes own deal, which he's still pushing to get through what's happening in this country. At the moment is that the government is losing control of events power is slipping away from the prime minister, quite news with that power is going Adrian Wooldridge rights badges are column about British politics. He was in the house of Commons for MRs maith announcement. That morning. She came to the house of Commons straight away from a cabinet meeting. We should be a very tense cabinet meeting in which number of members of our cabinet confronted her and said, you must extend you must take new deal off the table mustn't be the case that will be allowed to crash out of the EU without a deal, and that has been part of our negotiating position. So taken off the table was a huge embarrassment and reduction of power so power slipping away from the prime minister. So where does this leave the timetable is we understand what happens next? Well, the return things going on in the Commons of the moments. I mean, the atmosphere is electric the atmosphere is is furthered people in an extreme state of high political frenzy tying the government's hands by seeking commandeer. The auto paper. She's rather discourteous. The prime minister is delivering a statement. It should be and colleagues. No, I'm just under strong, feelings comics from the record. Everybody will get things going on his business made his speech chaos on the one hand and calculation on the other hand people trying to say what does this really mean? And I could see the members of the European research group, the hardliners that all in little plump all discussing as she was speaking. What do we do about this? What does it mean? So everybody was trying to think what does it mean mean what does it mean what she promised was. There will be votes on March twelfth he will vote on Mrs Maes deal that failed last time by thirty. It's very difficult to turn it around on the thirteenth. There will be votes on whether to accept new deal that will almost certainly there is a majority in the house against new deal then on the fourteenth whether to apply for an extension to the needing. Brexit day March the twenty ninth I think that would come onto majority in the house. So what are the important things? That's happened. This week is that Britain is unlikely believing the European Union on Brexit. They March the twenty ninth. It'll be leaving two months perhaps after that whatever the the extension if it comes to that do not find ourselves in the same position again close to that date. Absolutely. We do and it does seem that we're gridlocked that the sides of roughly the same size. They can't get a majority. And so that's probably the case. Both leaders have lost control of their parties or losing control of their parties were fighting desperately to keep control of that party's against very powerful forces and Theresa May con- controller cabinet. She can't control the lower ranks of her government, and she can't control her party. And that's also being strangely mirrored on the labor side where Jeremy open is also suffering from internal rebellions of significant rebellions and is desperately trying to reassert control. But at the expense of making very big concessions. His critics. Amid all this the labor party dropped its own breaks at bombshell, Jeremy Corbyn. The labour leader has said if Labour's owned Brexit withdrawal plan is rejected a vote today. He'll threw his weight behind public vote a second referendum. Mr. Corbin is still smarting from the resignation of nine MP's last week. They left the party in frustration at his Brexit strategy and its failure to tackle anti semitism on the face of labor who switched position to be in support of a second referendum. But that would only happen after Mrs Maes deal passes in parliament and macelroy senior editor of the economist. And one of our chief breaks apologists is skeptical that Mr. corbin's announcement has much substance. Jeremy cool been moved his party position this week to woods a second referendum quite clearly his shadow. Brexit secretary said that remain would be on the ballot paper, which is the big question for a lot of people who want this. However, that's not a commitment that we've. Yet heard unambiguously from Jeremy Corbyn himself, so to your mind than what's materially changed. Should we consider this week as the week that the the prospects for a second referendum really changed? I think we should consider as the week when the labor party was no longer able to straddle the positions as Abe liaise. It had done here to four Jeremy Kuban doesn't really want to second referendum wants a general election. He said it over and over again, but he has conceded that the emotion in his party, particularly with this breakaway group in mind that they want hit words second referendum from him. So you could see things moving gently not direction. Unfortunately, he hasn't spelled out. Whether it's the second referendum that most people mean, which is the woman that says, oh, we going always staying does the outcome of all this does the outcome for Brexit matter beyond that or is this just damage control by party leaders. I think it's to party leaders discovering, the Hoed way that Brexit is a powerful fragmentation of what they considered to be their power base so labor you're finding a leader from the left of the party who was trying to build a big momentum as he calls his movement sweeping away. The conservative government is finding that he has difficulties to unite his party around the Brexit question on the conservative side. You have a prime minister who's doubled down on getting do with the EU and eventually getting herds Dobbin, really hard core. Eurosceptics own booed and finding that process much harder. That superglue is not sticking. It's not so sticky on the other side only the two leaders to very different muse same fundamental problem.

Orlando went on to be one of the better corners Dallas has ever had. He was in Kansas City this year playing meaningful time he flip flopped between corner. So my point would all it saying is these names and all of that people get it Namur with that. But when you break in down film, and you notice as well as anybody within a week.

Because when we when you watch teams play against the patriots one thing that fear rates me if people don't put their hands. They don't revile them.

He never even looked for the ball behind. Yeah. Not only was it pass interference. It was also a helmet to helmet hit. So you could've called two separate things on that one play. If you'd have told me that he did that in an effort to draw the flag instead of giving up what could have been a touchdown on the wheel route there.

Tiger Woods vs. Phil Mickelson shows what money can buy and what it cant

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Tiger Woods versus Phil Mickelson shows. What money can buy and what it can't one enduring lesson nearly fourteen years covering Gulf, the chronicle not much compares to Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson playing alongside each other. Especially in contention on Sundays their spirited simultaneous charges. Electrified Augusta National in the final round of the two thousand nine masters, even if they both alternately faltered, they're pairing three years later at Pebble Beach where Mickelson uncommonly crushed woods in the final round created similar buzz friendly reminder about Friday's much-hyped pay per view match. This is not the same. Not even close woods and Mickelson will play head to head for nine million dollars winner-take-all, and that alone will prompt a good number of people to forego over nineteen ninety nine they will see a contrived exhibition not memorable competition on a grant stage. This is November in Las Vegas. Not April and Augusta. It just doesn't matter. Sports captivates us. Because the games are meaningful authentic. Well, maybe not in baseball steroid era and unpredictable, but everything about Friday's made for television event seems forced scripted and even a bit slimy. Take several cringe worthy moments during Tuesday's promotional news conference woods and Mickelson who for years had zero use free other tossed out flowery compliments as if they were lifelong best buddies near the end of the session Mickelson said without laughing. It will be a major championship intensity on Friday, then to complete this theater of the absurd. Woods and Mickelson complied with a request for a stoic face to face staredown like two heavyweight boxers. Please Friday's matches about money naturally. A vehicle for people who are crazy rich to become even richer, the two best golfers of their generation are trying to squeeze out more revenue before they fade from public view. Mickelson is forty eight and woods turns forty three next month. They each one a PD tour event this year for the first time since two thousand thirteen making. For compelling stories, especially with woods, given his fall from grace and repeated back surgeries, but it was telling when Justin Thomas the world's fourth-ranked player said there was zero percent chance. He would watch this tiger Phil tussle Rory macelroy echo Thomas last week into by look if they had done it fifteen years ago, it would have been great macelroy told reporters. But nowadays, it's missed the Mark a little bit, fair point woods and Mickelson squaring off in two thousand five six or seven with tiger dominating the PGA tour and Phil finally winning an occasional major might have resonated more. Plus, they really disliked each other back, then that's one fascinating confounding element of this whole thing that unlikely of Lucien of the tiger Phil relationship, the tension traces to their junior golf days in southern California. When Mickelson reportedly looked down on the young, prodigy and woods grew resentful. Sports Illustrated's Alan ship once told of woods in his amateur days. Watching the masters on television as one of Michael's? Typically, aggressive putz scooted farther and farther past the whole would simply said role. They're infamous writer Cup pairing in two thousand four widen the divide but woods clearly softened in recent years. Maybe he really was humbled by his personal travails. And by the injuries that limited him to one official tour start between August two thousand fifteen and January two thousand eighteen Mickelson accelerated the thought and their relationship by sending encouraging text messages while woods recovered from his back surgeries woods responded by doing the same. As Mickelson chased victory at the Mexico championship in March now curiously there, essentially business partners making promotional spots appearing together at news conferences, leaving open the possibility of more matches. If this one proves successful. They're throwing lots of gimmicks at the wall and hoping some stick woods Mickelson and their caddies. We'll we're microphones during Friday's which could reveal lively insightful banter or more scripted stage nonsense. The telecast will carry a strong gambling flavor. Fitting for a Vegas show at glitzy. Shadow creek, golf course odds will be displayed to gosh, the potential success of impending shots and woods and Mickelson are making high stakes side bets with the money going to charity, including two hundred thousand dollars on whether Mickelson birdies the first hole.
