Acquire immigrant from Jamaica an artist dancer an activist. Who immigrated to the United States about seven years ago? And during the first hour, we talked with Ricardo about his experience, being a Queer Person Living Jamaica now during the second half of the hour. We're going to talk about what your experience was Ricardo when you got here to the United States so thank you again being with us during during this hour. and. The first question I wanna ask you about this Ricardo is how did. What were your preconceived notions? I guess about coming to the US as a queer person. And how did kind of the? How did you reality compare contrast without once you got here? Told my partner that. You've York was something that was always in my consciousness. I never really knew how I was going to get there or anniversary, even you. If. It was even gonNA hap learn but. Being in Jamaica and accessing. US, media It the gave Romanticize. Kind of. Heating so tour me very attractive to me. I spent lots of time watching. Will and grace, and fixing the city, and and I thought and gossip girl, and they thought that if I came to New, York my life were. Kind of the United. Fat It just look so aspiration looks like everyone was just so free and they were. asking. And fluorine. So When I finally kind of decided to. Come to the United States. I. Even adopt process. was. I didn't realize that. All of these things got I was kind of like. Once. Every grain traveling for that. Makes me happy. The impetus are what propelled me to like leaving was In, October two thousand on the. Sports and I wore kind I with trying to get into my. Game I was living in a community and I was touching the keypads to open vacation either. and. I was accustomed by this guy and. He why we head up into of growing, and I was kind of like trying to defend myself when I protect myself and. I thought he was gonNA like. Wanted or my phone, but she was just. So then I kinda I quickly realized that Oh he's not letting mugging near. He's not trying to rob me. You know like. Trying to hurt me so like I started fighting with in no uncertain are really starting to defend myself and You know she kinda like, said the slur like. Batman and Batman Chris It's a Jimmy Economy Gay slurs. So I was like Oh okay. This person was probably like me so. Smear residents inside the complex saw what was happening and they didn't even. Try to help. And my roommate at the time heard this. Screaming and she came out and her mom happened to be there as well as. One with you know. It started to draw crow. He kinda like up and no one even rented. Hey, more leg a try to hold him so that we could go report to the police so. My roommate's mom happen should be a nurse. She took me and I had some light bruises. And she was kind of like nursing. And referred was like. The sticking her own to Talk to like the other residents in the community and she came back. To apartment and she. was like Oh. They thought it was a cried of passion, so a didn't WanNa jet involve thought. Schwab Oh. That's what she said. So. It was kind of Nice. At point we're. Just Kinda like to me and the same feeling that I said before. We're United States not gonNA. Still. You probably will, so I really just need to figure the whole to me because I saw some things I saw someone literally like trying to inflict pain wasn't fixing pain on these, but then I saw like different people, just standing there and not trying to help, or even like saying don't do that. That's wrong, so it's like even if I. I have people around me. Who probably bones to you know I saw. Things to me or whatever the case may be if someone decided to, they won't. Even you know get kind of like? To help. So I. kind of like figure it out hoping get to Atlanta to stay with my father at the time, and my mom actually paid her for that ticket, and she literally said to me that busy last thing I'm going to you.

Well I thought I would take you on a little trip down memory lane here. Vicki and look back to thirteen months ago at Belmont Park when this is the way it sounded with. Hog Creek Hustle storming down the stretch. Silver on top the leader by three quarters of length to Wendell Fong, here comes on his Bishoff, looming large on the outside, and the three of them turned for home with autism mischief, making them over the outside up strike silver Wendell fondness right behind them heartbreak, hustle on the move and clothing, nitrous step against the outside of these calls again to with Barranco but private various Cook, pre council nitrous outside. He's dude onto the line Hot Creek Hustle Act. That was nitrous buttle by Bourachot and strike sober a final time of one twenty one point one to.

And again we're just going to step back and make our final run down stretch. Yet you know it's it's interesting. Since that win the woody Stevens last June by the way this the last time that he found the winner circle. He's faced off with some heavy hitters. He hasn't really duct anybody He returns to greatest company after that second place finish as the favorite with allowance horses at Churchill.

We thought that was the perfect five Unfortunately, unfortunately, like Tony Allen jumped up. And ran a heck of a racist day. We just couldn't run him down. And After they're just really. Aren't any what knee other places to really to run. And we were hoping to run a keeneland. Believe! They had the Commonwealth there back. Before everything shut down seven eighths of a mile, which was going to be a perfect spot. And they for some reason didn't bring that race back. For their short meat. So and Our owners. We just decided that we we wanted to go. We didn't want to run six anymore. Or six and a half. And we feel like that. that. He deserves this opportunity. To and we know, he loves racetrack.

"Dot so my girlfriend Taylor has very good friend that she met through work. Her name's lar-. She's a black woman and right. When everything happened, we were just having like we were having our pandemic zoo. Cocktail. Call with her, so we were like. Can we ask very annoying? White Grow Passion. She was like of course, and she was saying like. Yeah, like the n word horrible, but. What ads like at least I know that you're racist. She's like the worst thing is like the subtle racism. Bats are really that's a devastates may so yeah. microaggressions are more exhausting to me like I've heard stuff I've dealt with, but I think it's the microaggressions at some like I was going to give a Super Buji example. We are ice ride. Horses semi professionally instead I. Remember we get to so I. Did anybody understands how Courses Hunter Jumper? It are kind of like. Hundreds of more in alkyl. You're going over fences for grace and style jumpers. You're doing more. Eat, so he's doing one hundred class and my coach. As soon as I got out of the ring, I had a four round a guy add in Mr strides between. Kohl's all this stuff. And when I came over, she was just like. She was like listen. You're not gonNA metal, and I was like why not the worst out here today, so we? Nancy does the woman who's judging. I think we were in Pennsylvania. Amish country or something this very sophisticated. Bucci, everybody, there's got money. Everybody is supposed to be the right of equal. The judge over there she doesn't. She doesn't like black riders. All tonight said. Okay. So what are we supposed to do and she goes with that? You messed up. Just proves her point to her that you don't deserve to be out here, so I would say probably hit back to the bar and get ready for the next round competition. And I'm just like. A new. Breaking thing, not even finding out. She didn't like black at are group's her right? It was Kinda like. Agreeing. needs to go home tonight. It'd be like I told you. Black people should not be on horses. Might I'm positive of bike? WHY EXCEPT CIGAR? We'll that that pull are saying too is like you know like as a black woman in America. Living in the north or I'm sure anywhere, really bad. She says he feels like she has to be ten times better right for fifty percent of the rewards that. Clearly fucked up. I mean I. Think the fact that black every like everybody. Hit at some point heard their parents say you gotta work twice as hard to get a as far like. It's just a natural that your parents saves you. It's right up there with the talk. It's like it's that's each of. Is that little black grandmother fake for a phrase of Adobe? These white kids the white frenzy yours. You know it's like whatever they're doing. You can't do that so hey to break into you. Everything's GonNa be ten times harder. And then when so hearing that, but then looking at like your life, I mean you went to Columbia you were missed DC. USA Two thousand ten like you're clearly in over cheeser. You know so there ever hit a point where you're like okay now after my south or it's it's just it's. It's constant. You always have to be easy as caused. It doesn't stop like I think I wrote a post when I. I moved here when I was on my way here and I'll take a xer forget here to L. A., and I took an expert out of an interview. My Dad and I had done together where they had asked me what I wanted to be. When I grow up I said I looked around places where I wasn't represented I realized Hollywood is the place that was built on a propaganda film called Bertha Nation. Nation anybody wants to watch it, not the Nate Turner One, but it is a card core. Old School is the first blockbuster movie industry in it is a story of like savage slaves, raping out producting White Women at my mind I o. this industry is builds on racist propaganda, and how why open doors for people behind the so that great black creators, great black voices and storytellers in executives can come up so. So then that's when I was like. My goal in life is to be you know in the suite of a major entertainment brands, and so it's been so I think that's like her big answer to your thing I have a great job now. Incredible I'm like what's the mountain that we have to climb because guess what twenty and they're still there never been a black woman running any of the studios. Wow, what? It's going to be the I come home. I'm hoping though and I'm sure the interview will come by the, but it is not unlike teaching at Barry's bootcamp or something instead. Will Not put money on you on speaking of Your Dad. Your Data Z. civil rights icon I know. You said you wouldn't say that to his face now you do it on social media. He's on such media, so tell me a little bit about your dad and how that affected you do so. My Dad's part of this group called the little rock nine people that don't know. After the decision of Brown versus board, a lot of people ruby bridges, and a lot of people know the story well rock nine. They were nine students in Little Rock Arkansas. That desegregated little rock central high school. My Dad was the only senior, so he is the first African American, a graduate desegregated school in the south while es, Sobat is a lot, so that also answers your question about like do why am I such? Urge Hieber when you've got somebody like that. The House your. What is normal is a little skewed. He graduated high school. Think either sixteen or seventeen, so he did all that as a child basically. Blows my mind but. We just had these sixteen sector sixty third everybody out. There will learn very quickly i. Sketch everything related to my dad being a bad ass minds constantly. Wins Your Dad's birthday on my. Google it or they're. All these pictures from her father's Day. I googled my dad and I pulled off the Internet by family. But yeah. We just celebrated or actually on moderate shop was the sixteenth third anniversary of? Central, high, which should show everybody out there. It's only sixty years. You have parents and grandparents that age. At the things somebody recently instagram something like I get like if if Martin Luther King Junior were today, he would be the same agency. arpaio Yup altered raise. Filed to me, so I think what's always been funny to me is like everybody knows that iconic photo. Elizabeth ECKFORD walking down the street with the crowd, so it's the younger a-walking, she. Clutched under books in the crowd of white people are behind her, and so one of my best friends growing up is. Granddaughter, now Ambassador Andrew Young Advisors, Martin Luther King.

"Why. Right taking break you, I was waiting for this phone. All Winfred when Freddie Gray happen when Trayvon Martin I was waiting for call, but never quite caves so last year global here, but it's about fucking time. Let me ask you. Why do you think that now what people are finally watching in hopefully listening and learning, why now honest Mike, my grandmother's religious women was a very religious woman issues to talk about. They're not are no accidents. I think the reason people are so. Light, dogmatic now is we're in situations where people can't go outside. There's stuck in their house. The News Ltd on stories that I can tell you know. People are getting these absolute shit checks supposed to somehow manage to tide them over for how many months the twelve hundred dollars like. It was just a perfect storm. Am I talk about by Ghana's make X.? Don't think it's an accident that people were literally trapped in their house and they. Also we become so numb to gun, violence or something so wildly humane putting down a dog in putting your knee on somebody's neck in just squeezing the life out of them that I think minimum jarring moment because any other time like somebody's GonNa look at it. Especially during cried bond, it would have been like a couple people like Oh my God. You Know Justice for George and then they would have gone Arosa all day Brunch. And been like. Doing my part to help the communities of color. I think that you could leave and you were confronted constantly with like. Have you seen this? Have you seen? Did you did you hear? Aren't you pissed? All the sudden? I think that had previously been asleep for lack of a better term May. Yep Right Holy Shit today in that it was like Heo in by the way. This is the third person in two weeks like they killed him out our break without running, they killed. Is Under House. Asleep and all and then I think in. This is such a long winded answer saying like why I think this happened I? Think then Tom Pounding. Armory Brianna Taylor then you had any huber, though I think that was the first time a lot of wine or confront because Amy Cooper's not. She's not JETRO DOWN IN LOUISIANA WITH TWO TS overall and Mike confederate flag back. There and I'm sure there are people out there who have their that is. Watching Amy Cooper. I think it was so jarring for people because you saw this woman. Basically say I know how the system works I know the system works against you. I know exactly what I need to say in. Do to put the fear. God knew and weaponize a group of people that I know are here for me before. They'll ever be here for you and I need that line of hearing her say. I'm before she calls them. She's holding the phone in. Find. Donated, the Obama campaign concerns liberal lake to see her whole that phone look. They're in debt in the eye and say I'm GONNA. Tell them there's an African American man ear threatening white light. It was just I. Think for me. That was the nauseating because I heard so many other black unsafe. We all know any Cooper's exists. We knew they right. We worked with them. We know that even with them all of it, but it was hard to get people to believe. No people are weaponized constructive system against as I think any cooper, and it was kind of Cool Shit A. Few days later to realize. Oh, somebody colder, Amy Cooper in. This is what she wanted to happen, right? There are so many any cooper's I just started again. You can like you can audibly voyeurism, and just started following a baller Holy Shit, the fucking care in can. Unplugging believable so I did and that's the thing, too. Is I mean we've had all of us like these high tech phones for a long time, but now we're really using them to show what the fuck is going on when a lot of people were looking before so. I'm finally I'm happy we're all fucking finally here, but if you guys like you know you guys in black people and also question people of Color. Black people. What's the proper terminology? I've been like fire people. I personally like. A black person to me a pupil caller especially now and again like all the people out there who are like. Three only if you're black. If you're like way later, evaluate right my comment. Ma'am you. Get used to be like last night black. Indigenous all the, so it's like no. I am a black person. I am my. Yes, that's what I need, and so for me. That's what I prefer. I just think the funny part is like. You are A. Black. They always have been. You said the word a long time ago. It's Okay I. Really like is African American eason people's Anymore I. Don't know why, so here's how I like Otis. I'm doing everything that's happening right now is what I saw men going through the me too movement and I think it's art is like. The population of band versus like population of White. The White T. Bo is so massive that. It's funny. The like a back to. Oh. Can I hug you on sorry I didn't mean to say that Oh. You look really beautiful as own. Okay, where'd you? Put together I feel like that's the same thing that's happening. Bow Right gets. Question shouldn't affect my ass. Is Let. The white person you african-amer. I. Don't know. It's okay. We will get through this now. If you rolled up on the wrong black person with this string of consciousness, they might not have the time for you, but you got. You came to somebody who had. What if we do approach wrong? Black actress, who is just? They have no time for this. Just basically say you're sorry just just back out of the room. Just go apologies. That was very inappropriate of me. I'M GONNA. See Myself Out of your profile. But I do remember you know. My Dad's so to go back I. Did like me not realizing. Boston was a racist place me say I'm for Boston basically racer tattoo on my fucking forehead so. My Mom and dad when they lived in DC for his residency, my mom had ever like black. People are completely different like like in terms of like. Also like white communities in DC than I had ever seen my mom actually had my mom was like well. No, not for me. She's from Florida. You would think that would be the opposite. The the south is such a bad reputation when it comes to racism, but it's been north is actually. The problems are. Wild part I don't remember that. SNL right after trump wine, and they had the it was Chapelle, and then schedule Dave, Chapelle and Chris. Rock are at like a viewing party for the election and one of the white characters. Those course Tennessee went for trump f. all races live in the two of them. Look at each other. The were all. What was that woman wild to me? I'm looking around. Maybe people go so tape drive for example, everybody said, be careful when you are trying through. You have to be careful because the. People are really mean non I said. Listen I made this drawback backboard two years ago. They were racist girl. You're hearing. This funny thing, said listen I wore raid when I go to my aunt's house in Indiana of what's going to happen on this drive or driving through Ohio than I am I get to Arizona the point. There is out out. They got staying in the back of their window. They're sitting there. Trump twenty twenty shirt on, and I'm like cool. Let me go to the next hump over. It's the house in the middle of the country that will smile on your face and then have to go I. AM endanger okay. So fucking interesting you know, and it's like it Ben.

But today, actually when this airs were recorded before by tons able be June cheeks, and this is something that I so I am going to be saying ridiculous things Mackenzie because you completely make fun of me. I. Like a total example of white privilege and my eyes have been completely closed like. Like everything for Alas. Thirty six years of my life and you know I've I used to literally pride myself because I do I. Did cosmo read? You know. I've always been very female oriented pop culture programming. And so I would always say I. Don't I. Don't cover the news or anything serious or like upsetting. And I would all at try to myself you get ready. Make Fun of me on saying like. I'm just like not that political and I recently learned that saying that is depot.

Heard about it was I. Just watching on Netflix are highly encourage everybody. Watch to Hashtag black as and they talk about do teeth on the show so I kind of have an idea, but not really and on your social. You just recently posted like. Let's play drinking game with June. Ta and how many brands basically fuck up the meaning? You'll be wasted in thirty minutes. Scratch that fifteen minutes, okay. Because the welcome to the show. Hey, girl, thank you. Okay so Let's first just start off with you. As a human being so mackenzie night crossed paths when we both were working at batches yup now you are So which I feel like what a time to be working for a company like BG and like like. Let's just be honest. Batches is a predominantly white office. So you know I can imagine as a being a black person. It's probably nice to work in a company that is unsure predominantly black. Is it or isn't. Is it not? It's predominantly black they where I work east, but it's the newest streaming service under kind of the CBS Viacom eeg worlds I like to say like where dizzy plus blacker. Have incredible, black greater content all this stuff. It was a bit of A. Culture shock, but it's like there's a great line in Verbal were when the characters go to Africa for the first time. They say it's like black black. The very first time I. They with everything that's going on. It was a moment you kind of walk in EDP streaming platforms black, and so people not were black. We have like two people who aren't black, which is like wild most workplaces then. The New York office in your onset, everybody's black and show rudders black, so it's like that moment where you don't realize how much misset in. There and you don't have to explain like you can get on a call. Your Co workers and just be like. Especially now and everybody's like I know I know you don't have to do the late. Guide let's talk about how bad racism is on Monday with your boss instead. It's like everybody being like Hey, do you need a day off your? Yeah I'm unproductively need to do you need you know time off, go you know, go to protest. Yes, thank you so much. It's like I. think that now more than ever appreciate where I am. So. Let's go way back so you grew. You grew up in DC. Right born and raised in DC. I very obsessive about that statement because there are a lot of people who are like that's the Chevy Chase like PG.

It's funny. I think people think sound stage that just houses. And I'm like no people live near, and I think the interesting thing about DC DC is predominantly black city mine entire life on? DC resident. We only ever had a black mayor so i. Like I had an interesting Bourbon store childhood where I didn't realize out. The rest of the country operated I got every place build like black votes. Well, that's what I was gonNA. Ask you so. My Dad is a northerner, so he's a Boston. Born and bred boy. which I mean it's. It's crazy, because Boston actually, it's such a Mecca of education. You would think that it would be like really progressive, but boss has a very bad reputation for I. don't like that, so this Mo- probably talk about this later.

I'm less afraid of the person from a small Tennessee than I am. The kid is like I'm from Boston. I'm super proud where? I'm like Oh here. We go like she's GonNa.

Developing long duration energy storage

"What a year it's shaping up to be for. Storage manufacturing has taken a hit and some projects are getting delayed for obvious reasons Our analysts that would mackenzie say that. The coronavirus crisis will trim twenty twenty forecasts for Battery Installations. Globally by almost twenty percent. But they still expect it to be a record year and the projects that caught our eye are not going to get built this year but they do show the strength and resiliency of this market a few examples here. A coal plant in North Dakota is going to be replaced. In part with a one acre battery array that uses a new technology capable of discharging for a hundred and fifty hours. That's more than thirty times longer than a lithium ion batteries. The Electric Utility in Hawaii just awarded contracts for sixteen projects that add up to more than three gigawatt hours of storage and those will replace an oil fired. Coal-fired Power Plant in California Southern California Edison signed contracts for seven hundred seventy megawatts of batteries. Many of them paired with solar projects to replace aging gas plants plus in China more hybrid wind solar and battery plants are starting to emerge and wood. Mackenzie expects rapid growth in batteries within China in the coming years. It's the country will lead Asia. This lead Dan Foley who would McKenzie's head of energy storage to proclaim to our journalist at Green Tech Media The utility energy storage market is blowing through milestones faster than we can report them for example those Sei projects are together worth two hundred megawatts more than the entire twenty nineteen market says Fin Foley. So let's go through these. I think we should focus on the bright shiny objects I. What do we know about this form? Energy Project Catherine mentioned this at the end of a recent show so catherine what is Great River Energy who is form energy and what kind of battery could emerge from. This relationship is a great river. Energy is the largest generation and transmission co-op and what that means is it generates and provides power under long-term contracts to a bunch of member. Co Ops like twenty eight member Co ops and this is how a lot of the COP system is formed in the US where they're small co ops that are often serving rural communities. They are very much about keeping costs low for their customers and customers. Own the CO OPS. They are customer owners but then they sign up for long term agreements with these GMT providers. Because it does save the money in the long run and a lot of these. Gmt providers we've seen have these long term contracts For old coal plants and so great river energy is one of those GM GMT's and they made a decision a while back to shut down coal a coal plant call strip and they have been thinking about. How are we going to backfill it? And what are we going to use to do that? And so they've certainly been deploying a lot of renewables and they just recently entered into this agreement with Form Energy and forum is a start up Led by Matteo Harm. Yo who came out of TUSLA. He was the energy storage guru there yet mingchang. Who's an MIT professor? Who has been really another brains behind storage and Ted Wiley who co-founded Aquaman and energy storage company and there are a couple of other. Mit folks. Billy Woodford and Marco Ferrara and there. It's just a team of incredible minds. Who decided to try to calm at storage by thinking about it it as potentially being able to replace all of these Uncaught non cost effective coal plants and so their technology seeks to be super cheap long-duration Nontoxic something you would find everywhere to be able to you know. Put together a type of a flow battery that could just replace the footprint of any fossil fuel plant so that is their goal. And that's what a great river energy has decided to take a bet on. Let's talk about the tech first and then the rural cooperatives piece second jigger. This is a battery. We don't know much about but they call it an aqueous air battery. What does that mean well? Basically in it uses more abundant materials. Because what you find is as that the metals wondering yeah we'll water but also the metals they're using or quite Easy to find and so it's aluminum zinc magnesium etc right. And so so what you find is that they have this ability to use low-cost materials right and they're able to Store lots of energy so when you think about this ad. Matteo talks about this in his interview The way that Lithium. Ion Batteries work is that you can actually charged quickly and discharged quickly but at the same time basically to charge it as to discharge it. And so what you find. Is that these batteries It's around like sort of being able to constrict the nozzle and only making it one megawatt right because you can imagine that you could make a lithium ion battery that's a hundred megawatts incised but only dispatch one megawatt at a time and then make it last one hundred fifty hours now. The problem with that those. It's a super expensive way to get one hundred fifty hour battery whereas this is a much cheaper way. It's it's similar to sort of Etienne redux batteries and others were the basically have this. The fluid that that holds the charge can be expanded at a very low cost. The fuel cell that converts that fluid into energy that's utilized is the expensive

"Thanks so much for coming on the stories behind on cost. It's great to have you on. Thank you for having me. Join your the managing director of Adidas here in Australia. You've previously listed on destroying company on the X. Which managed billions of dollars of insurance claims and expanded the business internationally across Australia New Zealand Philippines in Great Britain reaching Five at six hundred staff whilst becoming the youngest managing director of Asset Company at the time. Tell me what was like growing up for you. In where did your entrepreneurial journey begin on the entire was a blast from the Pasta was a An interesting previous lots. Look a lucky break. When I was young my father all I was at university. You Cue up is the sole something in me and backed me in a little I'm improvements business that it guttering and roofing and all sorts of things like that so I walked around in bushels sky. Chooses a thing on Montaigne. You're all the business and and supply chains and things will go wrong and customers and processing all that jazz and and just had a real passion not so much to the product you know just the business so really got stuck into that and and built that up ended up selling that often and started another Businesses still had a bit of sort of getting deeper into the management of insurance clients but I built some software to manage it because of that time everything I still remember off the one storm having decided to someone. Look I'm sorry are you. Send the required request or a little bit light on. My fax machine is currently busy and and the early two thousands everything was facts and I remember the first email I got with a job request. Though was one of my skin sense that they would email us. Because how do they even know? I check my email every day. So not the done thing had just built that up and it's and things and Some things worked out really well some things that really proud of and and some things did not work out well and it was the lessons of both sides of move really quite interesting and and you know learning that sixty s to early doesn't actually teach you much doesn't actually teach you what not to do and teach you sort of things for the future and some of the difficult times kind because Han. Saad didn't know as much as I wanNA put onward but anyway that's how little you mentioned on so some big lessons from more values than as opposed to the successes of their any big lessons to sort of. Stay out you back. Spend that gives carried through. You'll sort of Korea. I guess as you've gone along. Yeah one of the big lessons is that actually the structure no structural achieve your vision and your mission in hunt side. There's lots of good strategies and lots of good vision. People I work with now and companies that invest in north of energy and focus that goes into strategy and vision and mission all on. Just it's actually the structure that will achieve it so as an example. A bite the one you know. A structural issue is like time orientation meaning short-term time orientation is long-term time orientation if your structure is short-term orientated and needs to be as an example come across a lot of people that are entrepreneurial wants to build a business they. WanNa get a business off the ground but you know what they're gonNA put food on the table in the show family. They'RE GONNA pay off school phase dual these shorter term things and ultimately the problem then becomes is there not structured so actually achieve that vision mission because the build a business? Sometimes you've gotta go for years with with very little in common you've got to bootstrap Lou those things in the problem. Is they become more and more frustrated because then achieving that vision and the mission thoughts from agree. I A lot of the things that I was trying to do. Didn't have a hope in hell of actually seeing a lot of day but because they weren't good ideas that I didn't have the passion on the Ngoni of that we didn't have the structure lies to Do it and sort of really getting to the bottom of the ingredients structure frost now with what we do with some clients. It's just about the time our intention roller responsibilities wards systems at your information flow all of these things flow into well we would define as the structure. And if you don't have the structure what you WanNa cheap got a choice to make. Either you keep going to that vision that mission so to speak and ignore the structure or you gotTa do a little bit of a dance. Maybe and I changed my structure a little bit to get a little bit of the mission and vision that I want and they once. I've done that a little bit of the dance. That in hindsight was one of the big learning even today so on we just on that as a structural element and it's silly example that I use. I wake up one day and decided I wanted to be. I my own supermodel now. The good thing with podcast is you. Don't actually have a video so I I can assure people that I am not structured to be Amousou. Gamal have the looks the stakes any of those bits and pieces right. I don't have the structure to be a mile supermodel so I've got a couple of choices. Either I can change my structure. Maybe I can gone lose. Twenty kilos leg extensions facelift. Go to the gym. All of that and become close to what today's definition is of a mouse. Oh Oh it's what I'm going to have to update my mission and vision to actually the achieve when I can based on my structure so there needs to be a bit of a Damn Mission Instruction Michigan structured structure. Yes I will can I change. My structure is something out of my control. Dance and and people did that more. And we're able to adjust the structural reality of the reality. Today I would be able to make incremental steps towards the big vision but often they just try shoe to five without a structure to support it so that was a big one that I still carry through tonight.

Nolan #3 - Insomnia / Blow the Man Down / True History of the Kelly Gang

"From Chicago. This is film spotting. I'm Adam Kanner and I'm Josh. Larsen can't be easy to keep working after three days. No sleep to keep focus. You're seeing things yet. Cause little flashes tricks alight that's Robin Williams with Al Pacino in Christopher Nolan's insomnia from two thousand and two as the follow up to his mind. Bending breakout hit. Memento insomnia struck some at the time as a frustratingly straightforward thriller. This week we continue our Nolan who've review with a fresh look plus we'll have thoughts on three new releases all available online more. Can I get up Pacino ahead? Unfilled SPOTTING Welcome to film spotting Josh. The theaters are closed. But the movies keep coming at least if you know where to look this week. We've got reviews of three new releases. Include ONE. That's definitely a golden brick. Were the debut. That's the cozy noir thriller. Blow the man down a feature debut set in Downey's main and the down under set the true history of the Kelly gang from director. Justin Kurt Sel and the high school set Sela and the spades one. You caught up with Josh Ross. Going to continue our Christopher Nolan who've review with two thousand? Two's insomnia the black sheep. Maybe of the Nolan filmography. We'll see if it does deserve that reputation later in the show first though let's talk some new movies for a change including that Australian import true history of the Kelly gang mother soldier pan. You cost me you. Can that back a child? It is already traveling. Full tilt toward the men are would become. That's from the trailer for True History of the Kelly gang which is available to rent ondemand this weekend. The director is Justin Kerr. Zal who previously made twenty eleven the snow town murders than in two thousand fifteen. He did Macbeth. Which starred Michael Faster and Marion Cotillard? All three of them re teamed for two thousand sixteen assassin's creed now. Kelly gang is set in colonial Australia. Where Kelly and his group of anarchists violently rebel against their British rulers nineteen. Seventeen George MCI plays Ned Kelly. The film also stars Russell. Crowe Nicholas Holt Thomasson. Mackenzie and Charlie Hunnam so strong. Cast their Adam. You're able to get an early look at this one before. It's on demand release. Did the cast live up to. Its Promise House the film in general some of it definitely did in terms of the cast. This is actually my first. Kerr Zal film. Haven't seen any of the other three that you mentioned despite the fact that Michael Fast Bender has been in those two that you mentioned and I'm always down for Good Shakespeare Adaptation. I can't compare obviously this film the Kelly Gang to his adaptation of Macbeth specifically but there is a lot of the Scottish play in his telling of Ned Kelly. Se Davis from our beloved. The Baba Duke plays his mother in this film and she is not someone to cross. She's domineering she's vengeful. It's born from years of oppression as a woman and as an Irish woman living under English rule in Australia. You hear her in the trailer. Seda a young Ned. You're a man. Now you go out and show the world. This isn't a gentle mother's encouragement. It's an order and like Macbeth himself. As ned gets closer to his fate the matter he gets and that unhinged hallucinatory spirit is. What colonel taps into visually think about the late nineteenth century? We get in. John Hill coats the proposition as a counterpoint. This is not that at all. This is realism clashing with fantasy to the point where there are times in certain sequences and shots. Josh especially a recurring motif of a man riding a horse. That feels more like more door than the Bush way outside Melbourne. And so I've dropped Macbeth. I've dropped Lord of the rings throw in the assassination of Jesse James by the Coward. Robert Ford and the pop aesthetic of Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette. Except with punk instead and you get some sense of what watching the true history of the Kelly. Gang is really like which may sound really amazing to you and other people. Yeah I'm I'm hooked so far. Yeah it's definitely a lot and honestly it was a little bit too much for me. Wants so much to be this fiery sneer. That doesn't conform do conventional biography and it's full of these big ideas about colonialism and storytelling and masculinity and challenging gender and sexual norms. The gang the Kelly gang actually wears dresses for me. It's just all too much of a performance of assault to really embrace and actually MCI is part of it. He's a really intriguing presence and has an unsettling physicality that he definitely brings to this role. A presence was kind of all he was in nineteen seventeen. That's kind of by the design of that film and I haven't read anything about his performance but I wouldn't be shocked to learn that he went really method here that he he went so deep. And as I said there's there's an intensity to it there's a real physicality to it but he's burrowed so deep into it. So deep into Ned Kelly psyche that he never emerges for me and I can appreciate the audacity of what Kerr's doing here and his. I our first shot of young. Ned actually is him peering through a slit in his makeshift home while his mother is engaged in a sex act with a paying customer. That's a British officer played by Hunnam and then later at the end it is big showdown with authorities. He's wearing iron over his head for protection. With the sliver is is that matches that exact same point of view so crucial knows what he's doing absolutely and he does have a really game cast Russell. Crowe shows up for a little bit in this movie. And there's a lot of fun as outlaw. Who Basically pays for? He buys a young Ned as an indentured servant to teach him the trade. And I really like Nicholas Holt. In this movie. He shows up maybe about midway through as a really charming despicable and entitled English constable. Who BEFRIENDS NED in the family? Until the family decides that they're not going to subjugate themselves to him like he expects everyone to do so some juicy fund performances here and crystals definitely doing allot as I said in terms of the filmmaking sounds like there might even be a little bit of animal kingdom in there too with the mother son Dynamic and of course the Australians setting so I. I'm intrigued by those comparisons. We'll we'll have to see if the catch up with if it works a little bit better for me. The True History of the Kelly gang is available to rent on demand right. Now the new one you caught up with Josh is called Sela and the spades the directing debut of Theresa Poh. It had its debut back in January at Sundance and it came to Amazon prime. This past weekend in your letterbox review you wrote any movie that mixes the DNA of mean girls. Brick and schooldays has my attention. We're all over the place with our references in this show so far. Tell me more. Yeah this this could be a lazy short and in some ways doing this exercise. But I think it's it is really helpful in this case because those are great films with distinct styles each trying to do something that maybe you hadn't quite seen before done in that way and mixing it all together is really exciting. That also puts a ton of pressure on a relatively small film like Sela and the spades and so I don't know if it's the sort of pressure this movie can entirely bare but I like that. All of these elements are in here that the basic scenario is selling. The speights takes place at an elite boarding school and we follow the illicit dealings and also the the relationships among various student factions there called and each of these factions. They're essentially like criminal gangs. So Sela played by Lovey Simone. She runs the drug-dealing spades. And you know there are maybe some Macbeth Lady Macbeth specifically comparisons to make here in her ambition and the way she holds grip on power. She does take an underclassmen under her wing. But as we come to learn you know it may not be the most altruistic reasons that underclassmen played by Celeste O'Connor now both of those performances are really strong by Simone and O'Connor There are some good supporting turns to. I could see this being one of those smaller. First films where two or three of the actors in them and this happened with mean girls as well right pop up in later films and you really see what what great talents. They have their There's also the whole criminal element calls on brick of course that this is going on among high schoolers beneath the adults is. It's kind of amazing. How little the adults have to play in in this world And then there are some really striking flourishes by PLO as director. And here's where some of the the school days Spike Lee school days comparisons come in because Sela is also the head of the spirit squad for the school and they have a direct address to the camera routine just about what. It's like to be a seventeen year old

Eilean Mor Lighthouse Keepers - Scotland

"Setting for this story revolves around the Flan in aisles. Lighthouse the seventy five foot. Lighthouse was constructed between eighteen ninety five and eighteen ninety nine and cost about six thousand nine hundred pounds sterling which is a great British pounds and that's equivalent to about million dollars in two thousand nineteen money The Lighthouse was first lit on December seventh eighteen ninety nine so this lighthouse sits on. I lean more which literally means large island in Scottish Gaelic and is part of the plan. An aisles. A small island chain on the west coast of mainland Scotland. The islands have been devoid of permit residents since the automation of the flat. Isles Lighthouse in one thousand nine hundred ninety one. So Joe Have you ever bad into the Scotland? Scotland or Ireland. I have I have not either. It's like a lot of things it's on the list. The aisles provide nesting population of seabirds most notably the Atlantic. Puffins there is also a population of rabbits brought to the island by the lighthouse keepers other than Sea Birds in rabbits. There's no real hostile animals on the on the island so That'll rule out any kind of animal attack in the story. Yeah the island of Eileen more for centuries was regarded as a magical place with cer- a certain powerful aura surrounding it sheep herders. Who are the only ones knowns regularly visit? The island called it the other country and believed to be populated by spirits a fairy folk elves and supernatural beans as well as giant birds. Which were said to prowl the area so sounds like a pretty terrifying island. I actually don't want to visit it now. What's funny is it's really small islands just kind of flat. Yeah I won't say flee it's not like plateau wish but I mean it's not like it's huge and jagged so it's kind of funny to think about you think about people back then and there's not much going on so their imagination goes wild. Yeah that's all I can think of is like if you're a sheep herder and you gotta go to the island with your sheep every now and then like you've nothing else to do in expert thinking about this stuff. Yeah it's probably like a self fulfilling myth they hear it from somebody and then you know they probably morphed into these crazy. Stories of supernatural means giant birds over centuries of elephants. Yeah so Yeah the sheep herders and fishermen who visited the island were said to US special rituals to protect themselves from these magical island inhabitants and were said to communicate with them through a special dialect just for this purpose so these guys taking it serious yeah. They formed their own language to to speak with these spirits. So nine thousand nine hundred style. Lopping yeah there. You Go Even before the incident at the lighthouse there have been several stories about mysterious creatures and other things that gave people pause about the island so it sounds like if you lived back in that time. It's it's not somewhere he'd go with your family for vacation. You'd probably try to avoid the island. Yeah I think it exists solely basically to provide the lighthouse and to keep shifts from basically crashing into this island chain. So we'll talk about the lighthouse keepers of the. Eileen more they had if you can imagine a relatively easy job they worked in shifts with three men on and one enjoying two weeks off at all times. Okay so they're always three guys there in one guy off going back. Home was on the island at the time. The three men working that lighthouse that day. Where James do qat? He's forty three years old. Donald MacArthur Forty and Thomas Marshall. Who's twenty eight so I'm GonNa go right into the time line since it was a long time ago? It's based off of diary entries and captain's logs of the boat that was approaching to relieve a one of the men at the lighthouse. So on December Fifteenth Nineteen Hundred Captain Holman aboard the American steamboat. The Ark tour pass by Eileen Moore and notice that the lighthouse was out of operation so this is December fifteenth home and sent out a wireless telegram informing the mainland of the issue. It was for unknown. Reasons not immediately passed onto the northern Lighthouse board which is who is in charge of administering lighthouse. In addition to this First Oversight The lighthouses regularly monitored by telescope from the nearby. Lewes island by a guy named Roderick. Mackenzie Mackenzie had failed to notice that the light was out. The assumption is that there was thick mist in the area had obstructed views since it was just by a telescope for over a week. Known was sure what had happened on the island so they noticed the light was on the fifteenth. Yeah on December twenty sixth in one thousand nine hundred Captain Jim Harvey was bringing the fourth attendant. Joseph more so that has no relation to the name of the island is just coincidence. That the guy's name was more and they're going to the Eileen more so he was going to the lighthouse as the relief Attendant as the ship approached the island. He noted that something was off the re. The relief flag was not flying and no one was waiting the arrival at the landing of the more so he sounded the whistle on the boat and shot a flare to try and catch lighthouse keepers attention but the island continued to remain silent. So Joseph Moore wrote ashore in a row boat and went up the stairs from the from where he docks the boat that went up to lighthouse and according to reports from more himself. The replacement lighthouse keeper suffered an overwhelming sense of foreboding on his long. Walk up to the top of the cliff so he can almost feel. There is something not right so once at the lighthouse more notice something was immediately wrong the door the lighthouses unlocked and in the entrance hall. Two of three oilskin coats were missing. More continued onto the kitchen area where he found a half eaten food in an overturned chair. Almost as if someone jumped from their seat in a hurry to add to this particular scene the kitchen clock it also stopped more. Continue to search the rest the lighthouse but found no sign of lighthouse keepers. He ran back to the ship to inform Captain Harvey who subsequently ordered a search. The Island for the missing men known was ever found Harvey. This is the captain. The ship quickly sent back telegram to the mainland which in turn was forwarded to the northern Lighthouse Board headquarters in Edinburgh the Telegraph read. A dreadful accident has happened at the Flanigan's the three keepers Kat Marshall and the occasion and the occasional have disappeared from the island on our arrival there. This afternoon. No sign of life was to be seen on the island fired a rocket but as no responses made managed to land more who went up to the station but found no keepers there. The clocks were stopped and other signs indicated that an accident must have happened about a week ago. Poor fellows they must bend blown over the cliffs or drawn trying to secure a crane or something like that night coming on. We could not wait to make something as to their fate. I have left more McDonald and boy master in two seamen on the island to keep the light burning until you make other arrangements will not return to Obama until I hear from you. I have repeated this wire to moorhead in case you're not at home. I will remain at the Telegraph office tonight until it closes. If you wish to wire me. So that was his telegram a few days later Robert. Morehead the Board Superintendent who both recruited knew. All three men personally departed for the island to investigate the disappearance. His investigation of the lighthouse found nothing over and above. What more had already reported that is except for lighthouses? Lock so this work. It's interesting muirhead immediately. Noticed that the last few days of entries entries were very unusual on the twelfth of December. Thomas Marshall the second assistant wrote of severe wins the likes of which he had never seen before in twenty years he also noticed that James do cut the principal keeper had been very quiet and that the Third Assistant William MacArthur had been crying. I'm just picturing the scene it. It just reminds me of In movies where there's like people can find somewhere. How before something really bad happens. They're all just acting really strange and yeah. They started to go mad a little bit. Yeah yeah that's that's I I'm with you and that's exactly what I was thinking. So what's really strange about? The final remarks was that William Macarthur was a season Mariner it was known on the Scottish mainland as a tough brawler. So why would he be crying about a storm? And that's I mean if you can just imagine if you go there now yeah I mean bar fights drinking that type of thing so you have this guy here. That's like a big tough guy. You know brought to tears over a storm. I mean initially people from Scotland. There tough tough people. This is a third hand story that someone I know that's from Ireland. Told me you know like when they say tough brawler this happened. I ten fifteen years ago. He was in a bar in Scotland in this American walked in and kind of like a Dorky looking American and ask where the bathroom was and apparently somebody in the park didn't like that and literally bottled him. And that bottling is just. They broke a beer bottle over the back of his head. I don't know the story is true. But that's sound like stereotypical Scotland Bar. Like so I I believe it. Yeah WanNa believe it soccer team just lost and they're pissed off and yeah football team. Mike you'RE GONNA get body falls. Sorry but yeah. They're tough so log entries on the thirteenth December state at the storm is still raging and that offer men had been praying but why would three experience lighthouse keeper safely situated under Brand New Light House? That was one hundred fifty feet above sea level. Be Praying for storm to stop. This should be perfectly safe in theory. Even more particular peculiar is that there were no reported. Storms in the area on the Twelfth Thirteenth Fourteenth of December. In fact the weather was calm in the storms that were to batter. The island didn't hit until December seventeenth. So that's kind of what get strange about this because it's not some island off the mill nowhere. Yeah it's very close to mainland.

Coronavirus, Oil, and Kansas

"Okay Jacob first thing. We've got to talk about here. Is OPEC the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries? Which is this amazing global economic thing. Yes so okay. Opec goes back to the nineteen sixties. That's when a bunch of oil. Exporting Countries all got together and they ask themselves this basic question. Why are we all competing with each other? Why are we all pumping more and more oil and selling it for lower and lower prices when instead we all just get together and agree to limit production and sell oil for a higher price? So they formed. What's called a cartel? A cartel is basically just a bunch of different people or companies who are in the same business or industry and they get together and agree to limit production and coordinate prices. Doing this form. A cartel is any industries basically. It's their dream. Come true you know. Instead of competing out in the brutal world of the free market you just carve up the market with your pals and let the prophets role. In in fact the only reason more industries don't do this don't form cartels is because it is wildly illegal if all say that airlines in America got together and decided. Let's just coordinate on routes and fares and they got caught. They would be massive legal trouble but those. Us rules don't apply to the countries and OPEC they're Muslim countries in the Middle East and Africa. And they're those oil industries are largely controlled by their governments themselves. So they're oil. Ministers can get together and decide how much oil each country is going to produce for decades OPEC was this cartel unofficially de facto lead by Saudi Arabia. That had all this power over the world's supply of oil when OPEC decided to cut back. The price went up when they decided to pump more. The price fell and then just in the past decade or so that changed fracking took off the United States and suddenly the US was producing all this oil and the US of course the oil industry is private not public the US is not part of OPEC so the rise of US oil production meant that the Saudis and the other OPEC countries could no longer cut back on production and control. The price like they used to. The cartel was just not that strong anymore so to fight back. Opec got bigger the teamed up with Russia. We don't really think of Russia as a petro state but it sort of is. I didn't really realize this before we started working on the story but along with Saudi Arabia and the US. It's one of the three biggest oil producing nations in the world. Something like half of its government. Budget comes from oil and gas revenue. People started calling this new group of Saudis and the Russians and everybody else OPEC plus sounds like a boring streaming service. Actually a pretty effective global mega cartel and in two thousand sixteen the OPEC plus countries agreed to cut production. Prices started going back up and the cartel dream was back. The cartel was working until just a few days ago when something at the cartel went horribly wrong and Mary. When we came in Monday morning we saw this stuff happening in the oil market. I asked You like. Who Should we talk to? So my immediate thought was Ed Crooks if I have to phone a friend on oil. I'm calling Ed. He used to cover energy at the times for ages. Now he's at an energy consultancy. Wood Mackenzie so on Monday. Ed came in to help us make sense of what was going on. It's one of those days that you get very very rarely In life very rarely the oil market or in any other business which is a really dramatic unexpected event. That completely changes your world. Ed says okay to understand what is just happening in the past few days with oil. Start by going back. A couple of months. Think about China's response to the corona virus. Which of course we've heard a lot about but this time think about it from the point of view of oil what we saw in China were these very very Severe measures in order to curb the spread of the virus and so there's a lot of factories closed huge restrictions on travel. People would not driving around goods. Not being trucked around people would not flying and so all of those things hit oil demand in China in particular and China is the world's biggest oil importer so in the first few months of this year the global demand for oil fell by the most since the financial crisis more than ten years ago and the price of oil just started falling so just last week. The country's in OPEC in the oil cartel got together to do what cartels do European countries got together on Thursday. And they said right. This is all plan. We need to count a production by one point five million barrels a day to the end of the year we should bring the oil market back into balance. And that way everybody. Happy and prices will stabilize so that is old school. Saudi led OPEC the next day. They go to meet with. Opec plus basically adding in the Russians. The Friday you start hearing noises from the Russian Camp. Well then not happy about this. They weren't necessarily going to go along with it. So it's getting weird. There are delays. It's clear that not all is well. It's clear that you aren't just going to have an easy agreement. Everyone coming out and smiling and shaking hands or maybe not shaking hands and saying yeah. We've all agreed on this. One point five million barrels a day cut and the time dragged on and then the meeting kind of broke up in chaos and the this was the really kind of telling a comment when the Russian Energy Minister Alexander. Novak walked out of the meeting. He said everyone can pump as much as they want. He said you can pump it will. What did you think when you heard what had happened so I thought wow with my first reaction? I thought that the edited version. I mean the whole point of a cartel is UK at pump as much as you want right exactly. That discipline is everything. A cartel needs to things. It needs as larger market share as possible as many members as possible and it needs discipline and on Friday. It seemed to lose both of those things and then in the days after the meeting Russia and Saudi Arabia both went further. They said okay. Not only. Are we not going to cut production. We are going to increase production that promise of increased supply. Even as demanded falling led to that giant fall in oil prices on Monday. There is this really basic question here. Which why these countries have this dream thing that most businesses would kill for a cartel they can rig the market in their favor. All they have to do is agree to cut production. Why didn't they do that? The absolute truth of the of the. Why did this fall apart? One is that we are still trying to find out I'll selves. We don't really know but it does have an educated guess. It's frankly the best explanation I've heard for what happened and I love it because it speaks to. What's going on here with OPEC but it gets at this really basic kind of human tension that exists in any cartel. It works like this everybody in the cartel agrees yes sure we should cut production and

"After a whole lot of legal maneuvering and a lot of back and forth Christmas and eventually pleaded guilty to manslaughter. He was sentenced to just over fourteen years in prison. However Chris Wilson later attempted to withdraw his guilty plea claiming that he only accepted the plea because he felt he would not have received a fair trial. I think when they did their pre interviews the jurors it was like eighty five percent of. He's guilty. What's interesting and I didn't get into all of this. But he was offered initial plea which was which he turns down. Turn it down due. And then he was offered this and he took it takes. So it's Yikes. Yeah so he remains imprisoned in Washington and he'll be eligible for parole in two thousand twenty three. So what we found to be very odd was obviously this plea deal and this is Caitlin. R first degree felt the same way. It's this is not enough time for the loss of life. She was only seventeen when Chris killed her. He was twenty nine and Mackenzie will never get to do anything that her peers or loved ones got to do. And it's just not fair and if you look at this case it seems very open and shut when you look at just everything. Initially they had so much evidence. Why do they give him such a light sentence and plead him down the manslaughter from what we were told is? He got that because they wouldn't move the trial. Whatever reason and because it is such a small area keys or his attorney I guess was aware of the fact that it would be a very biased jury. Basically coming in with their minds made up already. 'cause he took a plea bargain and from that bargain. He got a very very minimal but to the point where he'll be out in a couple years possibly I. He's terrifies me now. Especially but key. I don't feel like to have the ability to be out and possibly again. What's the thing isn't you know my hope is but it never happens again in this. She doesn't do anything like this again. Then you know for lack of a better term. He learned a lesson. But my tells me that it's GonNa take a lot more than fourteen years. She deserved more than fourteen years. The sentence outraged those who loved Mackenzie. And those who support Chris in his innocence. Point to this as an indication that something fishy was going on but for those listening. What do you think with this question? We've come full circle and back to outcomes razor. What's the simplest explanation?.

"As much as anyone else was from what I saw. The apartment was less. It was maybe a mile in the school. I know it was less than that though. It was definitely within walking distance and so it wasn't like it was very far or out there and there was also Like a little quickie stop market right there too had that full food and snacks and stuff so she could have gone there. I don't know where she went but I'm completely throwing this out there so I have no idea but that was right next door to his apartment. I don't know I no one knows but the police have no explanation for how she got. There will it is. I mean we're talking about this before we according to so it's like. She was allegedly murdered in his apartment but then her car was found twenty million miles away miles away. One way or body was found twenty miles away. So it's like there's this triangle of where things are and there's no way to kind of piece them altogether so based on the time line so if the police is serious that she was killed in the apartment. It's like the car was found the same night. She went missing so the car was abandoned. First then the body would've had been moved because it fun four days later so more time you know but I think the car is important. I have this car near me. Yeah easy to getting in my apartment. I have time to figure this out. And then so what was interesting in that we haven't mentioned yet is so. He sold his car in April or his truck. Whatever it is but it was unusual time to sell it. He wouldn't normally have done that. No plans to sell his car. It's like you or any of US abruptly solar car without being like I'm shopping for a new car. It'd be like why are you to your car on a whim without. It's an expensive thing you bring it up and over. This guy is a student of these shows at least a student of Dexter student of silence of the lambs Kim potentially having an accomplice or whatever driving the car to one place depositing the body into another place is not unheard of cow and from the very beginning crystals and maintained his innocence. His defense claimed that he was being targeted because he was different and eccentric into dark hobbies and these apparently were things that made the police single him out as a potential suspect. The defense pointed the finger at Sam and Emmanuel. The two men who had already been cleared as the real killers. Mackenzie Cowl who also again had airtight alibis. Right and there was. They searched high and low like for digital evidence of this. This snuffle yeah. They got warrants to search their phones. I mean gator's where it's like if you were shown this if you were showing this video Liz. It had to have been on a phone or like there's no also they had to have been open enough to have it somewhere to be displayed exactly. Yeah so. His defense went as far as to claim that the police had planted. Mckenzie's blood Chris's apartment in also planted his DNA on the duct tape. Very making a murderer. We talked about that. The defense questioned the blood evidence. Further delivered on McKenzie's injuries. One neck wound header jugular. Which would have caused massive bleeding? And they asked. Mackenzie was killed there. Why wasn't there more blood one other thing? The defense did to which was fascinating and up like truly and I don't know this. Did you see this on the forty eight hours Jack? Where when they were in the court proceeding phase. They were accusing the father and he was like crying being like they're naming me in this. It's horrible. It was so horrible because you can tell how distraught this family is and it's just like I get defense attorneys or a necessary evil. I get. They're doing their job but like come on. This was devastation. That's fucking in naming the Father. Who was having a father daughter dinner with her that night and just broke my heart to watch it slow so most of so. The prosecution went back at them and they said you know what these accusations of police planting evidence now preposterous Salmon Emmanuel they had been thoroughly cleared as suspects and they had multiple people corroborating their alibis and there was an explanation for why there wasn't more blood in Chris's apartment member. Chris was obsessed with this. Tv Show Dexter. We've all watched dexter. But if you've never seen it. Dexter is a serial killer and kills bad guys but when he does kill them he lines the room in plastic like overly with plastic. It's just like it's filthy. Ran Wrap Line exactly and he does this to make sure that he's not leaving any evidence. He's incredibly meticulous in this show and the prosecution assuming that Chris must have done this rather successfully but some blood must have spilled onto the carpet when.

"Police reexamined the surveillance footage from the day. Mackenzie went missing and they see that. Chris left the school around the same time as McKenzie. I think it was literally like seventy seconds after. She had walked out the door gough like he went through a different entrance exit exit. Maybe a minute after right. It was very very soon after her. And it turns out that three witnesses reported seeing a man matching Chris's physical description near where McKenzie's car had been abandoned. There's no doubt that. This circumstantial evidence was interesting. Know he knew McKenzie he was on the tape. This yeah the last image of her alive and he had the serial killer obsession. But you know this idea that that he had these like weird comments and he had the serial killer obsession and he had this tattoo of Hannibal Lecter. A lot of people can be considered guilty. Just based on this stuff seeming. Everybody went through a Google search history. Saw even for just work and all the shit that we are googling and then you look like billy. It's just a whole abilities guilty and just by just by looking at it may have just been a classmate who is kind of creeped out by him. Which is not necessarily a bad thing to just like. You always want people to do that. So it's like if you think there could be something about this guy speak up right but it did seem a little bit like I look back at the westbound I. It's very west Memphis three vibe. Yes we're looking at like all right. Well who are the be outcasts? Who were the kids that are wearing black and listen to heavy metal and they get these these these kids particularly Damian. It's not like what West Memphis three. This is just what we're projecting onto this because he's just you know like a suspect like well we're just looking at it just from from the his physical appearance. Or it's like. Oh you're creepy Goth loaner Satanic Kid. Just by your looks with the Hannibal Lecter. Tattoo Dexter right so so. The police were able to get access to his apartment that he just moved out of so he had moved out of the apartment he'd been living in during the time of Mackenzie's murder and they were able to look around in there and what they found was chilling. They found a faded blood spot on the carpet and they cut it out and sent it in for testing and they tested it against McKenzie's DNA and it was a match. So why was McKenzie's blood on this guy's carpet? The police searched Chris's phone and computer and they found this video. Have been taken by Chris's Francesa for clean considering considering testing. Chris claimed the audio you just heard was from a video that they had taken. When Chris moves out of his apartment they said they filmed this walk through of the apartment as proof of how he left it so he could get his full deposit back. Chris claimed that he had a huge party at his apartment. Which explains why. They're saying what they said in this video. It's really clean. Considering what happened to her? It's really considering considering Dr Heinberg snickering when they say it. It's very chilling. Well it's like she whatever is considering she definitely knows what they're talking about the. You can't see the visuals obviously. This is an audio medium up on Youtube. I'm sure on Youtube only seat on the forty eight hours. But they're focusing on the bath tub. Which really is chilling and then zooming in to a piece of the carpet. Yeah it was very very weird but the police saw this video and they also knew where the blood spot was found so they did not buy this one bit. They believe that tests in. Chris both knew that Mackenzie had been killed in this apartment and the police phone more than just this video on Christmas computer. They found photos of Tessa quote posing as a dead person on the very same spot in Chris. Wilson's apartment where they found McKenzie's blood and when the question. Tessa about this evidence. She claimed to have no knowledge of the bloodstain and she said that Chris had told her to pose there. But this all looks really bad. But the nail in Chris's coffin would come from a secret weapon that the police had been holding back at the senior becomes his body had been found. The police recovered a piece of duct tape that had been used in the murder in on that duct tape they found unknown male DNA. And once Chris was on their radar they tested against his DNA and it was a match. It's at this point that the police really start to close in on Chris. Oh my goodness oh we just got to school in an hour every morning up in the freshman classroom as a whole group the entire school is there for a theory class and we got there and we were in theory and all the sudden someone tried to get up and go to the bathroom and we were locked in this room and they wouldn't let us out and it was a couple of hours. It seemed like later that we're finally out. But the police were actually at our school getting into his Walker and clearing it out and then we found out in that time that they had arrested him and I remember almost having like an Zaidi attack and me and a couple of friends in our group. They actually took us his office because we were so shook up about it and my boyfriend at the time came and picked me up. They lost the school. Shut it down. It was only they'd ever shut the school down because everyone was so blown away. And just scared you know and heartbroken and all the emotions and cubbies you know consigned in one space for so long while the police are there as makes you wonder what's going on and confused and we didn't have any idea it was close to home as it was you know that was completely out of left field. Finally approximately eight months after McKenzie was murdered. An arrest was made. Christopher Scott Wilson was taken into custody and charged with second degree murder and then he was held on a million dollars. Bail people who took classes at the Academy of hair design with Bolton Wilson Cow. Say Wilson was fun to be around and friendly but information released in court documents. Say Wilson was obsessed with death that bodies and serial killers. He told people that when he worked at a funeral home he'd liked to cut people up. It's really scary. Especially since it's right there. Kristie old lives right behind. Wilson's apartment and she met him a few months ago when he cut her six-year-old daughter's hair. He was really patient. Really calm with it was it was good. I mean I would have taken her back. You know to have him do her hair. Overall feeling of Nazi is shock for some people. That shock is mixed with relief. Having I've just happened in the valley. It's it's devastating for others. More pain I love to Mackenzie. She was in my class. A great girl for this too. It's like a double tragedy. It's you know it's like getting slammed twice Chris's Francesa was arrested. Also and she was accused of helping. Chris Conceal the crime but for whatever reason those charges never came to fruition and they were eventually dropped. It makes me wonder if because where she where Mackenzie was found was so far town and so far from where her car was found out of town but it makes me think there had to be someone else involved at least moving him around you know getting him from point a to point B but I. I don't know if she obviously I feel like knew more than she let on But for whatever reason she was never it's like they arrested her and then she just kind of disappeared from the news for a while so on the heels of Chris her classmates arrest. Caitlyn started to think back on the months that had passed. It had been eight months so she realized stat at this memorial. Chris attended and sort of feigned sadness. And this whole thing really repulsed. Her he did had and in fact. I can't I tried to see if I could find it. There was a picture somewhere. We all have these white shirts with her picture on and he showed up in beauty school here which was all black when he was there. He was very STOIC He had a bad based but has demeanor was kind of standoffish. It pisses me off to the bombing. I'm sorry but it does. How can you do that? And her family. And then your classmates are sitting around you and crying. And it was so heartbreaking and you have the guts to show up and sit there and I know that people do that but you know killers do that. Come on now. Police had their guy and they had a theory. They have a theory. But there's no explanation for how Mackenzie and criss cross paths ended up. I mean their theory is that she was killed in his apartment. And that's an interesting theory. The last tech she sent was to her boyfriend around three. She's she left the parking lot of the beauty school around three. So it's it's very curious about how she would have ended up at the apartment. No and I you know I still have questions about that too. Because that part doesn't make sense to me to be perfectly honest I don't know how he convinced her. Or How exactly? She got to his apartment. I have no clue. I mean unless he knew where she was going to whatever she was doing if she was getting coffee or something to eat or whatever it was unless he knew if she told him or said something to someone overheard. I have no idea how they would have crossed paths outside of school. They're friendly I mean we're you know.

"So they had it at the Tempo Center which is an arena and they had her family you know and really close friends and everyone was sitting down in the where the ice usually is. And then the rest of us are all up in the stands and we had shirts made that beautiful with her picture on it and most of us were that and we all sat together and it was heartbreaking to see her parents at their and her brothers. Oh my gosh. Her brothers were just. It just broke my heart in a whole another level you know and I actually gone to high school with her cousin. So Sh- I saw her and it was none. I mean you know. It doesn't feel like this should be happening. And then we went outside and release balloons and there are so many pink and purple balloons. It I still have a picture of it actually in it. I remember just crying and the person I was with after release the blanchet holding me and I was standing in the parking lot and I just lost it stopping and all my friends that were there from school. We were just destroyed. So months had passed since the discovery of Mackenzie's body. A lot of us that our officers are also fathers and we're investigating the death of a child McKenzie. We go home and see our children. Think there but for the Greasy God. This could happen to our child as well. It makes it tough and it's been tough because it has been over three months now that we've been investigating this case and we just haven't gotten that at little break that we need to go ahead and turn the fullness we're using every tool that we think we're using the cell phone towers to go ahead and try to locate where certain calls or made from bolts from McKinsey in certain people. We've looked at during the course of the investigation. We subpoenaed phone records throughout this investigation to help us along that as well. We have use polygraph tests as a way to go ahead and try to figure out as the person we need to focus more on or not Absolutely we're doing everything that we can think to do to solve this case about her boyfriend. Her boyfriend was interviewed early on. He was interviewed extensively. this point. He is not as focusing the investigation either. I really think that it's time for someone to step forward and help solve this case. I know that you out there know who did this. And it's important to my family for you to bring up person forward. Police had interviewed more than eight hundred people throughout the course of their investigation. They'd gone through a ton of tips and actually gone from having three potential suspects to nine but that was all about to change. The police received an anonymous letter. That pointed the finger at one of Mackenzie's beauty school classmates a twenty nine year old. Christopher Scott Wilson. The letter stated that Chris had a quote unquote obsession with death. Dead Bodies in serial killers. The police started questioning other classmates of their as and learned that Chris had an obsession with Dexter TV. Show and a tattoo. Depicting Hannibal Lecter. So Chris had actually been going to school longer. It's the school's kind of set up weird. It's these groups. They call them. Freshmen come in usually like thirty to forty at a time and they come in. I think four times a year. They're starting classes and he had started before us so he was in. You know a sophomore range or whatever you WANNA call it so. The first time I met Chris the first day he was the one that led all the freshmen to the freshman classrooms. And I remember when I saw him he I had that feeling like he's just too much for me. There's something that is scaring me. He was very intimidating and not like physically but just his presence. Chris Wilson told one classmate that he used to work in funeral homes on that he quote liked to cut people up. We see each other. You know every single day we go to school Monday through Friday. Eight to five and were there together in this building and it's so you see 'em and run into them. I got through all my freshman training and we went down on the floor to start actually working on human hair people clients and we have this Halloween contest Where we would dress up. Our mannequins do their hair and makeup and I remember working on mine and I looked up and left over where she was directly across from me and he had a razor blade a straight razor and he's cutting the office use mansion and I was so freaked out and look that when my classmates doing and she was like oh she worked at a more he likes to do that kind of stuff and I was just like okay. I'm really keeping my distance because that is scary. He just gave me this scary creepy vibes.

"mackenzie" Discussed on The First Degree

"As concern in the community is escalating. The detectives are working to pinpoint the last communication in the last time. Mckenzie had been seen before she went missing so they determined that she had attended her morning classes. That day arrived at the beauty school and a beauty. School classmate explain. The McKenzie exited the building shortly after three o'clock and had told everyone that she'd be back in fifteen minutes but she never returned so the police went to the school. They pull the surveillance footage. That depicted Mackenzie walking away from the school and towards her car in the parking lot before driving. Away once police received Mackenzie sell records. They learned that right around the time when she got into her car. Presumably she sent a text message to her boyfriend. Joaquin that said. Hey what's up in this was also the last time. Mackenzie used her phone. Meanwhile a search of the area where McKenzie's car was found continued for four days and at one. Pm On the afternoon of February thirteenth their worst fears were realised on the banks of the Columbia River near resort community about twenty miles away from a Naci and fifty yards from vacant house. That was for sale. They discovered the body of a female. She was fully clothed with her feet. In the water. It was Mackenzie and it was clear that she had been brutally murdered. This discovery sent shockwaves through this idyllic community. Her family and friends were beyond crushed. Mckenzie wasn't missing. She wasn't just dead. Someone had brutally taken her life. I shut down. I didn't WANNA I was out of birthday party when I got the news that they found the body. It hasn't been identified but I was like really how many other young girls women are missing from this area so I was like. I don't know who it is. I don't want them to identify. I don't I don't want to know so I just kind of shut it down and I didn't want to knowledge but it was her and then there's the fear and the the sadness that she's gone all set in and it just makes me want to hide but it was like watching a movie in your. It was just so bizarre. We live in a small town. And how that was such a gruesome thing. How did that end up here like to me? It was that should have happened in Seattle or even spokane. Why is it Achy? How could somebody do this? And why this isn't the kind of place where murderers happen. And Mackenzie was. A perfect child. Didn't break the rules. Didn't do anything unsavory. She's the last person that this should have happened to an everyone struggles to make sense of it. So an autopsy determined McKenzie's cause of death to have been strangulation and stab wounds to the neck and there was also blunt force trauma to her head and it also seemed that. Kenny's killer had tried to cut off one of her arms after her death and a knife was found and it was still stuck in her shoulder. The medical examiner found no evidence that she had been sexually assaulted the wounds she sustained. Were awful. The results of the autopsy prompted a really glaring question. If this heinous crime wasn't sexually motivated and that's not necessarily to listen. A lot of crimes can be sexually motivated. Even if there's no penetration there's no nothing. What could have possibly compelled someone to kill this innocent seventeen year old high school student and following the discovery of Mackenzie's body law enforcement assembled the McKenzie cal task force which is a multi-agency police group dedicated to solving her murder. They started by looking and speaking to those closest to her as they do. They questioned her family and her boyfriend. Joaquin and of course. He's upset and in shock over what has happened to his girlfriend. Police questioned him at length before asking him whether he'd be willing to take a lie detector test Joaquin agreed. The first question was. Do you know what happened to Mackenzie and Joaquin apparently filled the question could joaquin of killed. Mackenzie and like Alexis said in the beginning. It's always the husband is always the boyfriend. It's the easiest answer. The cops were looking at him hard. But at this point they had no physical evidence tying him to the crime. They kept him on the radar but continued to explore their other possibilities. There was a lot of rumors going around about you know family involvement. Obviously that's stuff. That is ridiculous sometimes not all the time but in this case it was completely off and then her boyfriend was not that type of person from what I understood and let she founded like talking about him so it was. I didn't have any clue at this point that the police learn about some of Mackenzie's family dynamics her parents were divorced and her mother had a boyfriend. Who Mackenzie was not that thrilled about? The Guy's name is Joey Fisher and he. Mackenzie had apparently got into this huge argument the day before she had gone missing and the police question him but in a situation similar to Joaquin their read on him was inconclusive. This guy could be involved. But they didn't have much evidence more investigation would be needed and there was no nothing really glaring that was setting off alarm bells about it in cases like this police are lucky to have one good lead and thus far we have to but a third was about to come into play in. This would complicate the investigation. Horrify onlookers a woman named Liz. Read came forward claiming to have information about Mackenzie's murder. And you have to know. Liz is a complex character. She was a college student former. Drug dealer and the time has happened. She'd also been a police informant in. Liz told the police that she knew who had killed. Mackenzie she said it was to drug dealers named Sam Cuevas in a manual Santos and she said it had all been a case of mistaken identity. The two men supposedly believed that Mackenzie was a police informant in the next thing that Liz said chilled them to their core with spine tingling. Liz claimed to have seen a snuff film of Mackenzie's murder. She further claimed that same cuevas admitted to her. I choke that bitch to shut her up. And this is a jaw dropping story. It was as horrific as it was bizarre. Could this be true? And if so how did Mackenzie Cross paths with these men? Liz continued and described the alleged murder weapon and she also gave police a ring. Which he claimed had belonged to Mackenzie. Liz had this ring in her possession because Emmanuel had sent her back to the murder site after it was all done to go back and find the ring probably so they couldn't be clean. Yeah right so. This point heads are spinning is a lot of people at play here that the police are looking at. There's Joaquin a Kansas boyfriend. There's Joey Fisher. Mckenzie's mother's boyfriend. Then they're sam and Emmanuel who killed Mackenzie well and there's also like a stranger theory. Caitlyn said that she was scared. She actually didn't come back to beauty school when she heard what happened. She's like I need more time off like they gotta catch this guy before we go back to school. Yeah so I mean Wall Emmanuel and Sam are strangers. There's the idea that like she also described Nazi as this theory in the center of Washington. It's transient if you have to go from south to North or North or South you pass through with Naci. So he's she's like tons of tourist tons of like strangers in and out super possible that it's a random person. They looked at Joaquin at length. And they learned that this young couple had a solid relationship and the rarely fought but perhaps more importantly on top of that. Joaquin had an airtight alibi and his cell phone activity put him in another area. And the same was the case for Joey Fisher. He had a proven alibi so he really could not have been the one to kill. Mackenzie either right. So the police turn their attention back to Liz. They needed to pressure test. Her story as well as it was. I mean they couldn't discount it. They had to look into it. So they showed the ring that Liz claim to be McKenzie's to Mackenzie's family none of them recognize it as belonging to her Joaquin said the same thing. He's never seen this before but there was a picture of her wearing so we watched a forty eight hours about this case. But I don't like they were holding a silver ring in the picture was just a silver ring and I just don't like a silver ring a little ball on it but it's also like you could have running water so it's only grandma's heirloom ring. That is not specific. Yeah I don't know loses a complex character. You don't know why someone would lie about something like this. You know nothing comes to fruition in the sense that like their gaping holes in Liz's story. Why would these men have targeted Mackenzie as an informant? Why would they think she was an informant? Mackenzie didn't do drugs there. No connection between Mackenzie and these guys know documented communication between them. Mackenzie had no reason to be in these guys paths. And it's hard to imagine how they would have come in contact with her so you have to understand. They had surveillance of her walking newer car. Her last tax was to her boyfriend. How do these guys find her? How did they come in like? It doesn't make any sense and for she seventeen. These are older hardened criminals. It's just it's weird. There's there's no reason that they should be you know associated with each other but besides all that same Cuevas Emmanuel Sarah's were interviewed at length and produced really solid alibis. There were many witnesses in phone records if they had that place them elsewhere on the day. Mackenzie disappeared it's at this point that loses credibility came under fire and then on top of everything else. She recanted her story. And said it was a lie right and you have to know this goes back and forth. She goes back and said I recant it because I felt threatened. I recant because I thought you were gonNA arrest me for the murder. She has all these excuses for her. Recant meant because today she says it's true. It's just sketch sketchy that was just crazy. We didn't really hear about that too much for a while because at the beauty school they were keeping us very Informed but guarded and got whole summer we were actually the police were there doing. Dna Swabs and then taking us up to the police station which is like a couple of blocks away. We've walked up. They're in groups of four and all of us be interviewed throughout the summer. You know this is going on for months. So that theory that.

"Arkan's razor is a problem solving principle. That states explanation in which you have to make. Few assumptions is the correct. One or more simply. The simplest explanation is the best one and most of the time. This principle serve us well even crime. We all know the phrases. The husband did it. The boyfriend did it but sometimes it's not that simple. Sometimes an answer comes from out of the blue and today's case takes us back to February ninth of two thousand and ten the song topping the charts was tick tock by cash and a dangerous man and Dante's inferno were in theaters and the setting for today's case is Watchi- Washington. This small picturesque town is like something out of a Norman Rockwell Painting. The town considers itself the apple capital of the world and they have a yearly. Apple Blossom Parade Festival and this parade has marching. Bands has floats and it features a performance by a local high school dance team called the epaulettes rights and one of the dancers on this apple. Let's dance team was seventeen year old high school. Student named Mackenzie Cowl. Mckenzie was a senior at high school and she was described as beautiful vibrant bubbly and friendly. In addition to all of that Mackenzie was really ambitious on top of being on the dance team and her studies she also did modeling on the side and decided to learn cosmetology in her spare time so after school she took classes at the Academy of Hair Design in downtown. Naci in what free time McKenzie had aside from. All of that she spent with her boyfriend in his name was walking. Bill Asano so in order to learn more about McKenzie we're going to introduce our first degree. Caitlyn and she McKenzie met at the Academy of hair design. So we all star was Mackenzie like fun so I started the same day. She did We were in the same freshman class. She came in for the High School. Half Day and I was there full days because I graduated high school and that was a full day thing so she come in at noon and we were kind of part of the same. Little Group of friends are like seven of us that kind of tended to migrate together and sit together and study together and so she was part of that and she was so fun. She was always smiling and laughing. She's dancing. She always look to dance. Even during class had the most beautiful hair. It was so long you know. Of course that's what we're studying so we're all jealous of each other's hair at the time you know but No she does the sunshine she's probably In the morning February Ninth Mackenzie was going through the motions and preparing for another busy normal day. She got up got ready for school and then talk to her daughter. She was packing up her books. She and her dad decided that they'd have dinner together. That evening. When Mackenzie got home from school they agreed to eat around six PM. They said their goodbyes and she left the house between seven and seven thirty in the morning. So it's nearing the end of the day. Mackenzie style looks at the clock and it's five forty. Pm and he's thinking that classes at the hair. Kademi let out at five. So Mackenzie should be home by now. He calls her cell phone. And it goes straight to voicemail. It calls again straight to voicemail again. This is really odd and his feelings that start as irritation. They transform into anger as the hours passed. We've done that before we're calling up. Somebody is like where are you? Are you now in pissed but now I'm scared well and you have kids? It's like you call the first time. You're you're -tated. Yeah and then if they don't answer the third time you're like oh no it's okay though. Call me back and then it's like they call you back and you're relieved in frustrated but like yeah. I can imagine the feeling and this time though. That didn't happen because Mackenzie didn't make it home by her. Apm curfew so. This is the situation right now. Rate and McKenzie's parents started calling around her friends and also to her boyfriend to see where she could be in. No one had seen her or knew what could be holding her up. The worry persisted and spread from her family in to her group of friends because he was responsible in very close to their parents. This is not normal behavior for her hours passed with no word from Mckenzie and then her dad's phone rings. The initial hope is obviously that it would be her but it wasn't on the line was a sheriff's deputy. They found a red car registered in his name. And use that information to track him down this car of course McKenzie's but she was not with vehicle a rancher living in a remote area nearly forty miles away called mission ridge call. The police and reported in abandoned red car in his driveway. Was on the phone. Mackenzie's father till the cops that his daughter had been missing for hours immediately law enforcement understood the seriousness of the situation and called in a team to look for evidence at the scene. They discovered McKenzie's purse and some of her clothes in the car. Her Debit Card and cell phone were missing and they one pair of footprints leading away from the scene so this would be a terrifying scenario. There's no reason that McKenzie would have gone anywhere without a purse and there's absolutely no reason for her to be in this remote area alone so something was terribly wrong. And the Chillan County Sheriff's Office began searching for Mackenzie a multiple different ways including by helicopter. Were combing the area near where the car was found. Search warrants were issued for Mackenzie's phone records. And all of her social media activity and at the request of the sheriff the FBI was called in to assist with.

Who Put the Baby in King Cake?

"We Cubans Mark Our holidays with glee cheer and often mouth watering desserts. Entered the New Orleans King. Cake the frosted coffee cake like sweet roll typically eaten between January sixth and fat Tuesday. Which is the day before lent begins? It's a staple of the Mardi gras season for those unfamiliar with this festive dessert. The New Orleans version is often made of rich Danish style dough braided and shaped into a large ring in often with one or a variety of fillings. Think cinnamon sugar chocolate. Raspberry preserves chopped sugar cons or sweetened. Cream cheese it's usually covered in a suite glazer frosting and decorated with Gold Green and purple sugar or icing and of course hidden somewhere within the tender layers of this frosted treat is a small plastic baby which sounds real weird if you're unfamiliar so let's back up a little. Because the origins of King cake go way back and yes. There are kings involved. Kim Cake derives from the holiday. Three Kings Day also called tiffany which is a Christian Feast Day celebrated on January sixth with the day after the Twelfth Day Christmas this holiday celebrates the Biblical Tale of the Three Kings Aka. Three wise men or madge by visiting the baby. Jesus it kicks off the Mardi Gras or carnival season which lasts until the first day of lent which is a moving holiday that falls forty days before Easter. Anyway the three kings are. Why can cakes are a seasonal treats in the shape of a crown or a more or less circular band anyway? Those three colors decorated with our symbolic purple for justice. Green for faith and gold for power and tradition holds that the plastic baby in the cake represents Jesus just as Jesus showed himself to the three wise men he will show himself to those enjoying king cake. Whoever finds the baby in there slice is crowned King or Queen for a day or hosts the next Mardi gras celebration or at least buys the cake next year? It's a lucky. Token other Tokens Coins. Peas. Pecans beans were what was up in the past and may still show up hundreds of thousands of king cakes or sold at New Orleans Mardi gras season. I couldn't track down a firm total but the big commercial bakeries ramp up to producing three thousand five hundred king cakes per day. Their busiest the Danish style dough is the most popular. But it's not the only kind either flakier or fluffier dough can sometimes be found and New Orleans isn't the only place to serve king cakes by far in northern France. You can find glut their Roy a flaky. Puff Pastry was sweet almond. Filling Bulgaria and Greece have similar dishes traditionally served around the New Year but the New Orleans. Pancake is closer to the Toda. Roy from southern France made with Brioche and the Rosca de raise from Spain a ring of sweet bread topped with icing and candied fruit. Which makes sense given these Spanish and southern French settlers and colonists who got the city started in the seventeen hundreds but Mardi gras and other carnival celebrations have roots. That go way back. People have been celebrating the end of winter and the return of longer warmer days up forever. Since the first brave human dared to celebrate ancient Babylonia may have held first Carnival Circuit Two thousand six hundred BC E. This was a festival that celebrated Mirth and change through satire by making a show of role reversals. There would be a parade through the streets. A pair of peasants would be royalty for the day and royalty would act like fools pranks played. Folks would wear costumes depicting social classes other than their own and everyone partied. Sound a little familiar. These traditions were incorporated into and or disseminated through Grecian and Roman cultural traditions. The first king cakes make all the way back ancient Rome. As part of the celebration of Saturnalia. A Winter Solstice and harvest festival a pastry would be baked with the fava bean hidden inside and the finder would be named king for the day. The tradition became a part of epiphany celebrations in the Middle Ages. The fava bean was sometimes replaced by porcelain token of a crowned head to take some of the pagan out of it. When Spain France spread their outposts to the Americas the king tradition came with them and took on a life of Zone particularly in New Orleans. The baby trinket didn't come along until a bakery called Mackenzie's came up with the idea in the nineteen fifties. At first these figures were made out of porcelain and baked inside the cake. But we're eventually replaced with plastic which comes alongside the cake due to concerns about baking plastic. These early cakes were more brioche like or pedals they like and didn't have filling. That didn't come around until the nineteen eighties as acres began adding more eggs and sugar to the recipes or straight up switching to Danish pastry recipes. An anecdotal tail puts the first commercial. Filled can cakes in New Orleans tonight. Eighty-three according to Baker Jones semen that year baked four filled cakes? Her husband took one to work and they got twenty five calls about filled cakes within thirty minutes through the nineteen eighties and nineties. Cajun and creole food became national trends and shipping technology improved as well allowing for more or less affordable overnight shipping then in two thousand four the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina honed New Orleans sense of community history and pride and both local and national hunger for these traditional dishes which means that celebrates have a veritable glut of kinky options today. Miniature king cakes can kick doughnuts. Can Kate Vodka can take bourbon? Milk Punch can kick smoothies and of course in a city that loves the party. A whole can cake festival held in late. January

Jobs and Skills of the Future

Automated

Jobs and Skills of the Future

"To get into today's core idea. I WANNA start off by referring to a two thousand fourteen questionnaire by the Pew Research Center so here. Some two thousand experts in the field of technology both those building the actual technologies and businesses as well as those who report on. It responded to questions about the impact of automation technologies so this was actually quite a high level questionnaire and some of the experts for the chief scientists of say for example SALESFORCE DOT com. There's also the vice president of Google. Even the principal researcher for Microsoft. So I wanted to refer to this questionnaire as I think it really highlights the goal of these last two episodes and the podcast as a whole so we can start off with The first group so forty eight percent of all the experts envisioned a future in which robots and digital agents have displaced significant numbers of both blue and white collar workers with many expressing concern that this will lead to vast increases in income inequality masses of people who are effectively unemployable and breakdowns in the social order. But on the other side of this the other half some fifty two percent expect that technology will not displace more jobs than it creates by at least twenty twenty five to be sure. This group anticipates that many jobs currently performed by humans will be substantially taken over by robots or digital agents by twenty twenty five but they have faith that human ingenuity will create new jobs industries and ways to make living just as has been doing since the dawn of the industrial revolution. But does this second group of experts have any lakes stand on so we know that through history jobs and the skills required for those jobs have been changing drastically due to the technological advancements bringing about large changes so you can think about the large changes that we as a species have gone through from hunter gatherers to use an agriculture to the first industrial revolution electrification computerization and the start of the Internet as well as today's fourth industrial revolution. So each of these epochs or eras are I think easily visualized having massively different jobs and tasks and of course the different skills attached to them but have these shifts created more or less jobs. I think that the answer is quite apparent but The net impact of new technologies on employment can really be seen as strongly positive and this is shown in a two thousand eleven. Study by Mackenzie's Paris office and they found that Looking at one of the main technologies that was Believed to destroy Significant amount of jobs the Internet had destroyed five hundred thousand jobs in France alone in the previous fifteen years but at the same time had created one point two million other jobs. This is a net addition of some seven hundred thousand or two point. Four jobs created for every single job destroyed so furthermore one third of new jobs created in United States. In the past twenty five years were types that did not exist or barely existed and these were in areas including It development hardware manufacturing APP creation and IT systems management so think that the argument is quite similar anywhere. You look and is really based on historical fact as mentioned during this podcast if you follow this historical perspective the future has new and emerging technologies constantly creating new jobs that humans will need to do. But what is predicted about how? Tomorrow's jobs and skills and how they look like so. There are dozens if not hundreds of reports out there looking at trends and predicting what these changes will be so I specifically looked at a number of reports ranging from two thousand fourteen till eight two thousand nineteen made by some of the big hitters like the McKinsey Global Institute the World Economic Forum the European Commission the Pew Research Center and others as always links will be in the show notes. If any of you want to look more into depth in these issues I will attempt to point out. The main issues presented with a focus on two ideas. What are going to be. The main new jobs of the future and to what specific skills will be required to perform them so new jobs related to the development maintenance and upgrading of AI. Or artificial intelligence as well as big data infrastructures are among those expected to grow. Significantly so digital technology can also enable new forms of entrepreneurial activity workers in small businesses and self employed occupations can benefit from higher income. Earning opportunities and this leads to a potential. New Category of knowledge enabled jobs becoming possible as machines imbed intelligence and knowledge that less skilled workers can then access with little training. So I've used this podcast even a number of times to illustrate a similar point for example I am putting together a monthly newsletter that I hope to have ready in a few weeks rather than having to design every single part of it online tools with prebuilt templates make the process significantly faster and allows someone without any design experience to produce something with a good level of quality or at least I hope granted this is a very simplistic example without any embedded intelligence but I hope it helps to illustrate the standing on the shoulder of giants picture. This future scenario is trying to push so one of the central themes that runs through many of these future. Job Scenarios is how much emotional intelligence and human to human interaction is in the changing environment so as the routine and Monday jobs are more and more done by automated systems. This will open up the opportunity to have more human interaction than we do today or at least this is what it's forecasted to be so cognizance feature of work reports have actually been quite interesting in this regard as they build this idea into a future scenario. Where over forty new jobs are imagined up to around twenty thirty so you can look at the show notes for links to the two reports. That will list all the jobs but some of the more interesting ones. I'll list right here. So the first one is something called an augmented reality journey. Builder and this future job is envisioned to collaborate with engineers to create the essential elements for customers to move through any sort of augmented reality experience. The second one here is the genetic diversity officer and they are envisioned to construct and encourage adherence to a company wide genetic equity policy that includes an kind of forces genetic diversity The third one is something called a data detective and they will uncover meaningful business answers and recommendations by investigating data through sensors devices and biometric monitors as well as other things that are used in organizations one of the last ones is smart home design manager and they will help customers design and integrate technologies into their smart homes of course. But then again with this increased digital connectivity there is also the increased hacking and security threats and thus positions around this are bound to increase in number as well as in type so one possible Position for seeing that I thought was quite interesting. Something called a juvenile cybercrime rehabilitation counselor and their jobs will be to help the convicted cybercriminals to redirect their online talents towards ethical behavior for the betterment of society. So I think it'll be really interesting to see whether any or all of these envisioned positions will be created over the next ten years. I'm pretty sure that very few people were able to guess the new kind of positions and jobs that are created through the internet or through Ai. So I'm happy to see that cognizant was able to creatively come up with some potential jobs of the future but this leads us to the next point regarding skills if we assume that new jobs are continually created but also significantly change. Do we currently have the skills needed to take on these new shifting roles so the OECD two thousand nineteen future of work report estimated that thirty two percent of all jobs will change significantly in the future though it was quite unspecified as a half that timeframe extends to McKinsey estimates that globally. Three hundred and seventy five million workers may need to switch occupations by twenty thirty but many adults do not seem to have the right skills for these changes. And they say that six out of ten adults lack basic. Ict skills or even have no computer experience which was quite shocking for me to hear. This is compounded with the fact that out of all jobs that are done in the OECD. Highly skilled jobs have increased by twenty five percent over the last twenty years. And this is further compounded by fact that the jobs that are most exposed to automation appear to be those that require relatively low levels of formal education those that do not involve relatively complex social interaction and those that involve routine manual tasks so the World Economic Forum actually highlighted a list of the top ten skills needed in twenty twenty as compared to twenty fifteen. So list will be fully available on the website but all Name a couple the more interesting ones here so these actually fit quite well in what was talked about above so A number one. There's complex problem solving followed by critical thinking and third being creativity. Then four five and six. I'll have to deal with interaction with people so you have people management followed by coordinating with others and the six one being emotional intelligence so I think this is kind of interesting especially in taken. In contrast to the top ten skills that were listed in two thousand fifteen although a number of them are still the same. There are some like active listening or quality control. Which don't even make it into twenty twenty at all and this is just an a five year period of time. Which I think is quite astonishing as you would need to be constantly learning in order to keep up with ever changing New Skills that are needed and I think this is a good segue into one of the last point of this podcast episode in that in all of these Studies and reports that went over for this episode. One of the main central ideas that is pushed forward is that a constant lifelong attempt at learning new skills. new ways of dealing with people is perhaps the most important thing as we go forward into this new and constantly shifting future so to sum up those jobs growing the most by twenty thirty appear to be those that require higher education intensive use of social and interactive skills and at least a basic knowledge of

China's Xi warned officials that efforts to contain coronavirus outbreak could hurt economy

"Let's get back to our top story in the coronavirus death toll has hit one thousand one hundred fifteen is the latest data from China signals that the outbreak may be easing that said Japan has found thirty nine more cases on board quarantined luxury cruise ship and DBS has this morning evacuated three hundred people from its Singapore office after a worker tested positive for the virus for more let's go live to Beijing weapon bags Tom mackenzie is standing by Tom great to have you with us we heard from xiecheng paying leading a chorus of voices expected expressing optimism about the Chinese economy but one thing that caught my attention was officials in the province of judge John saying that the focus has shifted from all out efforts to prevent and control the outbreak toward containing the epidemic wall insuring the economy's operation is that example in judge John an approach that's going to be taken across the country if China is going to defend its GDP target which would like to hear more which we will hear more about next month increasing I suspect it will be because of course and it speaks to the delicate balancing act now that if the schools we cubicles meet officials under John what school are not trying to ensure that they continue to chill that they've closed the business was operating waffle so short out another quarantine measures in place to keep this arts in check in at the very difficult balance of course to make but what we have seen over the last few days is that she's been in the states now it's all here in Beijing she wore black companies where they aren't properties that are not affected the chronicle DOT approved by getting a spot treat back up and running getting back on the production line and back to their offices but a lot of it is bound to insurance why change replace that majestic companies are able to operate both blocks around of the way in the course of employees can get from Allentown where many instead off to that country's go back that workplaces they are the next few weeks how can it be and what it does raise the risk of infections picking up and points to the right of inspections on the important point is that those additional cases to continue Kerr for not let people go in comfort from the navy we're getting to the point where this box is starting to take the country attention potentially but obviously being closely watched what is there in terms of progress when it comes to developing a vaccine what would work for a Chinese company to Beijing will quite Gee I should say now they responded by taking a drug that you develop like yeah on an American company and they started to match the cues and it is an experimental drug and have been licensed to have to be approved in China and bank anywhere else around the world but it's part of China that that's the kind of accelerate the moves to try and find a back in some form of treatment I mean the one side the most of him that Johnson Johnson and U. S. character like the network all the tent to develop a banking as well hand in hand with the US government and she shared some calls around the house okay yeah all Rick celebrating but as we talked about previously it's a long way off having a licensed and regulated by the filter and John are back let's try anything in that search yes I'm so from xi Jinping of course what we heard was about the outlook all the economy and and expressing the optimism around that told but also he's previously talked about his concerns around social stability if the outbreak gets any worse is that still a concern even as local governments annexing a web of rules restricting movement there's always the number one concern our number one priority for the Communist Party is social stability it was interesting that president xi Jinping at your party points out with quite Frank about that that the spread of the disease stocks where social stability not with a clear message from local officials on the ground who happened to battle with a few cents the quarantine measures but also in short the people are able to get back to work and get it speak to this balance because the people working there will be no calling salary that cost of living goes up and net disposal they can go down to this pressure of coastal this is a balancing act that is clearly in focus for officials say whether they can strike a course or something we should pull thanks to mackenzie thank you so much for joining us live from Beijing this morning all

"The bank let's get no to the corona virus outbreak China says the death toll has reached at least six hundred thirty six or forty one more cases have been found on the quarantine cruise ship in Japan that comes as Beijing is ramping up its efforts to contain the spread by increasing health screenings of residents in Wuhan for more we go live to Beijing where Bloomberg's Tom mackenzie is standing by so time how how much is China ramping up these efforts to contain the virus and when are we gonna start seeing the number of people infected it's now I think over thirty one thousand I'm gonna start to fall each day rather than continue to rise well that that is the crucial question of course and and very few people have have an exact on the flat they have estimate because you got the likes of Neil Ferguson from imperial college London he says daily inspections could not should be around fifty thousand every single day he doesn't think it's going to peak in just move on into at least margin in the rest of China may be until April or later on in the year he's an expert on these issues but even he can say that something of an estimate into the wall officials they were doing the chronicles of the multi pronged approach you got the corn seeds in areas like the province of Kobe forcible majors in cities like hung Jo which is hard Ali Baba the major economist John that way families now restricted from leaving their apartment twenty one member of the family that every two days buy groceries for example an intention which is just an hour south of Beijing why am now they've imposed similar measures again restricting people's ability to lead their own apartments whether or not lawyers measures will stop being posed in Beijing is another question that will be a major step then of course you got the testing so that ramping up the testing of the lab now a new hand testing to have the ability test ten thousand people a day and of course at the U. S. to send out testing kit as well to about four hundred didn't last minute course medics they were still working on trying to come up with some kind of faxing older of course the WHO's list a long way from that they are testing Chinese doctors a mixture of drugs and played a has been some progress according to state media but the green roll call into the number the coast continues under very few people expect that to radically grow up in the next few days or even weeks so we got all but six hundred and thirty death now thirty one thousand confirmed inspections and it's you said that ship off the coast of Japan now sixty one confirmed cases that many elderly passengers on my cruise ship of course you do have a Chinese doctors in this one Chinese doctor in particular he's been reported on points aloft and that is somebody who raise raise flags about the possibility of this becoming more serious some weeks ago Tom we've seen him die as one of the one of the the many hundreds even outside from the set from this

David Mackenzie Narrates a Scene From ‘Hell or High Water’

"Prompts Marcus to find a local guy who can drive him up to an area where he tried to get a shot? He's really out for blood. Now because he's so angry at foster's tanner and he's told it's going to be an impossible shot. It's GONNA be five hundred yards away. He says I don't care let's go do it and as they get up there the character says Joe you're winded and it's not even your gun let me take the shot and he says not on your life he's mine with that jaw jutted out and that grizzled grumble of his that we get from bridges in this fell and right before he takes the shot. We get that deep breath the intense focus. But there's even a sense of pain in that pause where it's almost like. He wishes. None of this was happening. He so angry though and he's so eager to shoot but you get the sense that he could break down. Any second is if the whole weight of all of this senselessness is there on bridges face and when it cuts to foster. This is where that mythic sense comes in again. He's looking looking at everyone down below him. He thinks he's safe up here in the hills and he says Lord of the planes. That's me and that's exactly the moment where he gets shot and I'll let our listeners. Takeover a couple listeners on our facebook page talked about this moment the beats that happened after he fires the kill. Shot Zac Santo. Chief says his reaction action to the end of the shootout at the climax of hell or high water is playing like three emotions at once relief. Joy and sorrow through a haze of mental and physical exhaustion. And it's a fantastic moment. Tom Curran shape. Powell goes even further with those combinations of emotions. He says when he kills Ben Foster's character after his partner is killed. His reaction is incredible. Incredible mix of victory sadness. Justice relief exhaustion frustration. Regret all at once. It's incredible. It really is incredible. It's all those things and there's even a little a bit of humor the guy who's next to him who said he probably couldn't do it. He turns to him and gives him a look. Like you doubted me. And then he slaps him a couple of times playfully letting out a chuckle. And it's that chuckle then just immediately kinda shifts into this really plaintive cry and just within a few beats as I said he hits every one of those notes that our listeners describe it's really a Bravura Jeff bridges

Product Managers for the Digital World

"Product managers for the digital world the role the product managers expanding due to the growing importance of data. It decision making in increase in customer in design focus in the evolution of software development methodologies like Agile according to Mackenzie and company Mackenzie says has product. Managers are the glue that binds the many functions that touch a product engineering design customer success sales marketing operations finance legal and more. They not only own decisions about what gets built but also influence every aspect of how it gets built and an launched. They wear many hats using a broad range of knowledge to make trade off decisions and bring together cross. Functional teams ensuring alignment between diverse for what's more product management is emerging as the new training ground for future tech. CEO's and now as companies from outside outside the digital world go through the digital transformation. They need product managers to get the product right also but Kenzi argues the product manager thinks like a CEO. But there's a problem there. Unlike procter and gamble's brand manager whose model HP copied to create today's product manager the brand manager at P. and G. had budget authority. They paid for the market research that is needed and for the advertising. So it's hard to think like a CEO when a product manager does not have control of the budget. That is why I argue elsewhere in this book that the product manager should have budget the thirty over marketing and market research. Data's becoming even more critical and enables the product manager to monitor a product success across crossing gauge moment really conversion usage and more product management is also becoming more agile planning for the next feature release and and long term product. Roadmap Mackenzie writes. The products are becoming more complex. Thus making the product management role. More difficult customers are looking for new features frequent improvements and upgrades after purchase product. Bundles are happening different. Pricing Tiers Dynamic Hamic pricing upsell opportunities in pricing strategies plus identifying in owning key partnerships. But Kenzi says there are three three types of product managers technologists generalists and business oriented based on their interviews. In my experience I agree. The technologists type of product manager has to be involved in back in platforms or highly beat Abi Products. In my opinion they tend to lean towards being the products architect act. The generalist is more customer focused. The business oriented product manager tends towards BTC products as the digital transformation accelerates rates reliance on data analytics become increasingly more important. Add to that. The fifteen perfect storm technologies discussed elsewhere in this book. These technologies will produce a lot of data figuring out what it all means also challenged product managers product. Managers of the future will apply. I machine learning and art official intelligence to understand the data gathered. Mackenzie the says the future product managers must have a computer science foundation design while this is true for some products overall. I think it is wrong. If the time and the effort of a product manager is pulled into the direction of architecture and design nine. Who's going to do the other thirty two things that must be done in the product market strategy for products

"Know I do see it as is a lifetime business. I am very intentional with how I'm growing my business. I want want it to be sustainable. I want to be in this business for the long call. So I'm trying to be mindful of not Bernie. Now which happens happens to a lot of people in this business because I am Orca Hollick. So it's a little difficult but yeah I think I always take my cue from what I think. God's plan is this for me so wherever he wants me is where I'm going to go but I do know that I was called to be a realtor in my life so I think it's a lot more than unjust. WHO's selling homes? A lot of people see it at like this glamorous lifestyle which it can be but it's a lot of work and I I think when you watch like I always come this but when you watch HDTV and you see mostly all the great things about real estate and so oh people don't see that we're working with first time homebuyers and they didn't hit twenty houses that they were offers on the got. This twenty-first health stepping Pity love heartbreak involved in literally tears. There's a lot of times it's all process really have up good at working with people. Yeah yeah well anything they say. The average person gets a new house every seven years so I always try to think. What do I do every once a decade that? I'm really good at nothing. You know so I try to take the approach of breaking it down to make it simple for people and I think as realtors. That's whenever big jobs in huge responsibility to be able to guide people through the process us and take some of that stress out of it and be confident in their advocate in really be their friend. I know all my clients become they friends even after the Clovis Cross right right So I have another partner tell you guys about its Hob see. I just got a beer. I don't know what they called. They call it a sub machine. It's like this tiny tag that you put on your account. Air You a beer drinker from Kensey. Mackenzie basically they delivered draft beer all the time. It's much as you want and I get my favorite mini kicks kegs of craft beer delivered and served from home tap. Here's a deal on the sub home tap have to get you started you go to my website. It's world of blue DOT COM and go to only sponsors page. If you use Promo Code World of Lou Link You Click on you'll get a free home tapestry hundred dollar value and there's no commitment no long term your lock in or anything like that. You'll get started for thirty dollars and getting Over three kegs and mission so again that's hop see and if you go to world of loot dot com slash sponsors you can check them out there now back to our APP. I said it's always fun. Doing these sponsorships again. There you go. That's Austin gift idea really is it's co- it's about the size it's basically a character beer. That's why didn't I think of that. Yeah that's amazing super cold. It's great so another way that I see McKinsey all the time. I just realized what friends of day all over the place so she's over at Spin Cycle Studio which again I've talked. I've talked about a little bit but not specific to their but just cycling in general how come into instructor. Yeah for sure. So I kind of tend to stumble my way into things. Now that I think about it I I kind of stumbled my way into a spin class when I was in high school local gym and their newest. Yeah so I started taking spin on my local gym just randomly like on a whim into a class. Like didn't even know what to expect at all and like I was sucked from the first class. I loved the music I loved the movement. I grew up doing dance and so I loved how they connected music to to movement and so I just thought it was like went crazy and then at class today and that sort of thing and then after doing that for probably about a year one in the instructors there was like hey we need new subs. You should get light. Licensed He. She get certified inside why not whatever that was about five years ago right around the time that I was getting into real estate so volt I signed up for core say drove down to Santa Barbara. Brian did it. And so then I started teaching this gym is called. Gb Three But yeah so I stumbled my way into it. Yeah Yeah Yeah I just love it. I love it as a writer going into the instructor oil and I feel like my life's goal is until I can power people and inspire them and speak truth in love and light into their lives so it was such an easy transition for me to be an instructor because I felt like what a blessing to be able to help other people on their journeys and I knew how much spended for me just not only physically but mentally being able to go into a room and just not think about anything going on outside those four walls and just being in the moment and so when I became an instructor being able to create that space. Listen hold that space for other people just kind of came. Naturally I would agree with that has a writer. I go to Mackenzie's class probably two three times a week. And she's right you just you kind of walk into that studio and you leave all the day's troubles behind like comes leave him outside those walls part of it because you're so tired you can't even think about the restaurant or so busy and for anyone that thinks cycling. It's not it's not a bunch of people standing dancing around on a bike hits staff and it can be there it is really great exercise. Do you have any challenges. Being coached and instructed the I think I think the hard part for me because I have been doing it for five years is just always like not being complacent where you are as an instructor so I'm always always reading on Pinter's looking at quotes and just always trying to soak up things that I can speak Over my clients and writers and so I feel like that's probably been the biggest challenge is just always keeping yourself sharp and not being. I'm good instructor. People are GonNa come into my class. Always growing always getting better. And it's hard like sometimes filling like super uninspired. He had are really hard day at work. A client does yelled at you on the phone and you have to go in and kind of drop all of that So I was just trying to remind myself that me showing up is really important. So regardless of what's going on in my life it's super important to leave out the door because my riders riders are worth it and they need me for sure. Exactly what I was GonNa say is there's twenty five writers depending on you to come in. I mean no pressure but for you to vibe like this release for them and for that or you just never know what they're going through sometimes all they need to get is. Yeah definitely when I feel like God has given me this platform to help other people so with with that. Responsibility comes a lot of I guess you were just say like inspiration. Like I know that dot pressure Asher is because it is a privilege you know so I have to honor that and make sure I'm showing up for them for sure in so that was a really deep challenge. I thought for sure you're going to say when you're facing the room. I go us but you have to go. That's like second nature now when I'm driving I'm like turn right and it's really laugh because my left is it's really confusing but yeah no I always go to like the core issue I never. I don't like the surface stuff. Apparently she it goes. I think like I said I think cycling's great exercise but besides that what experience being something just fell. That's what I've experienced. There's really like a whole community around cheesy to say there's a tribe but like I've met a lot of these people people that I know Michelle who I talked to him frequently and just all these people.

"In the trailer there that is Fox News Thirteen out of UTAH. This story was was and remains big news. This is the missing person's case of McKenzie Luek and as you heard there just after one week detectives and Salt Lake have what looks to be some promising leads and an interesting wasting time line McKinsey Luek was born in Elsa Gunda California and nineteen ninety five she grew up there with three brothers and her parents are Greg Diana Luek. She attended Elsa Gundel High School and played on the water polo team. After high school. She went off to the University of Utah where she studied nursing and other studies. She's a member of the Alpha Chi Omega sorority she worked for some time at a starbucks bucks and then at another coffee shop but per her linked in account she more recently was working at P.. R. A. Health Sciences LAB IN MILL CREEK UTAH. Even though she was living in another state and busy with her studies and worked she maintained a very close relationship with her parents and both sets of grandparents sadly last month. Funeral services were held in California four McKenzie's grandmother for for this she flew home after a brief stay. She returned to Utah the night of June sixteenth. She took a Redeye flight from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City arriving in Salt Lake at one thirty five A._M.. In Salt Lake she text her mother at to a one A._M.. Letting her know that she arrived safely. She waited to collect her luggage from the baggage claim and then using the lift APP she scheduled a ride to pick kerr up at the airport. There are security cameras everywhere in the airport and she can be seen texting waiting on her bags and walking through the airport at no time. is she seen talking to anyone. The lift vehicle picks her up at the airport at two forty two A._M.. Now we know twenty-three-year-old Mackenzie Luek is later reported as missing and unfortunately this is really starting to sound like a terrible terrible tragedy like so many stories that we have heard before you know recent stories of young women getting into a vehicle from a car service and then going missing. You know we've seen this movie before and unfortunately we know. Oh how it's going to end in ending is a bad one but very quickly we can move on from that theory because we get news that the Salt Lake City P._d.. They start looking into Mackenzie's life and her Internet and Social Media Activity digital detectives sifting through data. We learn a few very very important key elements to this case one and law enforcement they know who the lift driver is and they speak with this driver and two there's evidence to suggest that Mackenzie was delivered by the lift driver to a location of her choosing using and arrived at this location unharmed would have that data from the lift driver to let us know where her final destination was. <hes> yes so from the information collected through her phone and the lift APP and the eyewitness statements given to police from the lift driver. Here is what we learn. McKenzie did not schedule for the car service to take her home. She requested a drop off at Hatch Park. Mark this is this location is in North Salt Lake City and located twenty minutes from Mckenzie's home which is near Trolley Square. She arrived at Hatch Park at two fifty nine A._M.. The lift driver says Mackenzie was very obviously she was meeting someone there right now as far as I could find the lift drivers identity has not been released. I think in the beginning of this whole thing that may they have thrown some more suspicion in the public's eye toward the driver but the driver tells police Mackenzie was meeting someone and whoever it was Mackenzie got into that other car willingly the description of the vehicle of the person or persons she was meeting is re reported as unavailable but it could just be that the lift driver was unable to provide one to law enforcement. You'd think you'd at least it's now what kind of car she got into whether or not even what brand of car but Mike was it a sedan was S._U._V. Yeah he he or she. The driver probably gave a very vague description would be my I guess they're they're looking to move on to their next drive looking to pick up their next fair great but again through information hold on your meeting people at a park. This is not a normal drop off. You know most of the time people you're picking somebody up from the airport may be driving them to their car <hes> picking somebody up from the airport driving them back to their house. You're probably we're talking about probably a very small percent that at three o'clock in the morning is picking picking up a young female and driving her to a park to meet somebody. I guess yet incredibly small if not zero this might be the first of its kind right again through information deduced from data on McKenzie's phone. We learn even more after texting her parents after she arrived in Salt Lake City Mackenzie was texting someone else she's texting thirty one year old Ola Agi and the police quickly figure out that both McKenzie's phone and giants phone our Ping in are in close proximity and their location is both hatch park. This is at three three A._M.. On June seventeenth two thousand and nineteen I'd so this gives us some evidence that she's texting one this individual but to this is probably the person that she's GonNa meet up with. Yes <hes> police speak with Ajayi and going into this they know he was communicating via tax and likely through other means as well with Mackenzie. AJA does not deny communications with Mackenzie however he says he last ask texted her at six P._M.. The investigators have different information proof. That Mackenzie Texted Gye at two fifty eight A._M.. Now remember per lift. She was dropped off at two fifty nine. Am just just one minute after that text and her phone and giants phone are in very close proximity and in Hatch Park at three M so bribe disobey devil's advocate she's dexing him to do. Do they have evidence that he's texting her back after six P._M.. <hes> that I don't know the only thing that I could find reported was that she text Gye at two fifty eight A._M.. And again it's it's no coincidence. There's no no defense here. It's it's she's texting him and then one minute later she's dropped off and both their phones are enhanced park read that time so this is where you go okay we might have got him moment but now it's the problem here that they're going to run into and they don't arrest Ajayi after talking with him and we'll get into that in a bit but the other thing here that we we need to go through is what law enforcement knows that took place shortly after Mackenzie arrived at Hatch Park at some point her phone is turned off and once police started looking for Mackenzie they announced that they had no known activity from her regarding <unk> her cell phone or Internet as they put it. Her cell phone is not ringing no calls no email no social media nothing right just like we heard in the trailer they have former Salt Salt Lake City police chief talking there and what he's saying is at this time in the investigation. Yes she is missing but the question is is she in danger right so we have evidence that her phone is obviously there. Are we have evidence from the lift driver that he took her to the park but once that phone is turned off. We're not GONNA get any more pangs now from her so what what they are looking for. At this point point in the investigation they very publicly say this. They're saying hey look not only do we need your help in locating this missing individual but we would like to know if anybody out there is aware of her having a second cell phone on that that we are unaware of right or if she has some social media accounts that we are currently unaware of or if there's anything that she would have under a different name regarding internet or social media but again the problem here is very simply this that at that state in the investigation yes mackenzie is missing but is she in fact endanger because police are very very suspicious of this guy that they've talked to but Mackenzie missing is technically not a crime without evidence that she was abducted. There's really no crime to charge this man with but that's not going to stop law enforcement from getting a search warrant to search this man's home and property by Don like Mackenzie went running in the park and would just never seen her. She's adult choose a meeting another adult. She has every right to do so she has every right to turn off her phone. So who knows where she that <hes> and the thing here too is they don't really understand they being law enforcement. They can't get any confirmation confirmation from anybody. In Mackenzie's close life of why she would be speaking to this man that they that law enforcement is suspicious of they don't know what the connection is between the two two of them while you're gonNA find this more more with social media. There's a lot of people have kind of like pin pals online friends online but you might not know each other in person I think so. We have a bunch of reasons here why they're able to get this search warrant fairly easily. It looks like it's probably for a multitude of reasons but of those some quick ones to point out is first first. Ajayi story is not lining up with the facts that law enforcement know to be true regarding this whole time line right remember his texting time line is significantly off from what he's telling them to what they can prove what they can see on paper. So are they able to go. I I don't know the answer. Maybe are they able to go to a judge and say we have evidence that this this individual was texting. I've seen this other individual and when we asked them about it they're they are lying is that does that give them some kind of probable cause exactly that's exactly what it gives them there. They are going to get probable cause search warrant art for this man's property now keep in mind whatever they've released to the public is probably a much shorter version of what they know and what they're holding onto where you ask if did did a text her after the time that he said that they last communicated right. They know that if he did or did not they've just not. They're not choosing to release that information that money. He did his store yeah his this story is very plain and simple the last time I text with her with six P._M.. The day before and they what they have released publicly is they're saying to fifty eight A._M.. She text you. Oh right so that's your stories off there to begin with but then on top of that this is what's even more disturbing is they have neighbors of his that come forward word and they say he was out burning something in his backyard on June seventeenth and June eighteenth and using gasoline to burn whatever it was that that he was burning and on top of that they he also so denied knowing what Mackenzie even looked like and denies viewing her social media profile picture but they found at least one of those photos on his phone. His neighbors are coming out and saying 'cause she goes missing the early the morning of June seventeenth neighbors come out and say he's burning something on June seventeenth and eighteenth yes in his backyard using gasoline so it's with that information probably with some more for information that we are unaware of that they are able to secure this probable cause warrant to search his home and property. They don't make any buts about it. I think that the words that they used they they being law enforcement. Was We believe that his home his property is the nexus of this case is where her where.
