'Healing is coming': US health workers start getting vaccine
"Biggest vaccination campaign and U. S history is officially kicked off today, with health care workers rolling up their sleeves for shots to protect them from Cupid 19. NBC's Mark Miller joins us from New York where the first vaccines in the country were administered. Mark tell us about that. Yeah, that's right. The first person believed in the country to have gotten the vaccine was a woman named Sandra Lindsay. She's a registered nurse. He's actually a critical characters at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in Queens, New York, So she was the first person this morning you sat down in the chair, rolled up her sleeves and got the shot. The Governor of New York was on a video feed watching and, you know, she basically said that she felt very comfortable that she's very hopeful as a result of this and She felt, she said she that she feels like healing is coming that I'm sure someone who works in critical care for the last 9 10 months. It's been a difficult, difficult stretch. Mark. I'm sure other first responders. I'm sorry. Frontline workers had the same reaction. Other people, other nurses and doctors. What was their reaction is well, getting being the first in line to receive this vaccine. Yeah, I think I think it's a similar sentiment for most people is this idea that you know the phrase that I've seen so many times from so many people is light at the end of the tunnel, But I think the other part of that phrase that we've been seeing a lot today, too, is It is a long tunnel, because right now, you know, these are the first doses that are coming and it's you know, for example, one at one doctor said that you know he was happy that They now can prevent covert 19 not just treat covert 19. But remember, these are just the first few million doses that are going out right now. They're maybe 20 million people vaccinated by the end of the month with this visor vaccine. But, you know ah, anywhere in the order of 70 to 80% of the U. S population is what's needed for that kind of herd immunity to really, really kick this thing back and potentially get our lives back to normal. So that's where I think you're seeing that phrase that, Hey, there's light at the end of the tunnel, but it's still a long way. It's gonna be months before the general public. If you don't have a health condition if you're not in a high risk population, those kinds of things that might be months before you really get to sit down and get this vaccine.

"Of the conversation is we are actually setting up code names games tournaments during the breaks but in between the codenames there again i will be moderating sessions keeping everything everybody on their toes as far as it goes up. We pretty much split between us. The the keynote sessions as far as moderation goes but in general. We're floating around answering questions from the logistics team. Just making sure that the whole thing is running properly. It's interesting because you you know we've said it's a twenty four hour conference it starts at three a m eastern time each year the that we do it it ends at three a m eastern time and people are always like you stay up for twenty four hours and yes. We've stayed up every year for twenty four hours so in order to do that there are a couple of different things that we do one. We have one hundred and eighty speakers coming through in the six different tracks. The that we have for the conference and all the sessions are half hour apiece. When you're moderating those tracks you're figuring out who's coming on next talking about. Do i know this person. Do i have any background. How do i introduce them. Then you're listening to the present like what are you talking about. Is that interesting something as a moderator. Can i share that back with the community. And then you know who's who's next up is the speaker so you're constantly going through this. This exercise of just being on top of what's going on in a half an hour session moves very quick but at the same time and i have done this enough in produced not only attended but produce enough of the conferences and especially the devops specific online ones that we're moderating and at the same time we're operating the conference or producing so when we see something's not right with the conference production sound quality issues. What we have a team in the background that we are always talking to in our private slack channels to make sure everything goes right. We're also you know we. We've met a lot of people hundreds and hundreds of people through the community at the time and on occasion. Someone comes to me or mark. And they say i know you guys are the guys that are leading this conference and someone's harassing me in this this channel and then you have to go often kind of troubleshoot that we have a very simple policy for our conference in terms of participation that ad behavior i just go in and we have about six people on the team that can go in and we just eliminate that slack account when you are thirty thousand people participating in a conference in. Everyone's being good but there's one or two not not nice players in the audience. It's easy to just go in and eliminate their slack accounts and they're gone from the conference that makes it a safe experience for people to participate in conferences. Like this and it's it's still astounds me. Although i see it on twitter i see the remarks about certain people. Just don't know how to behave and large settings or you can definitely say wrong thing to a woman participating at a conference and certain people have sent me screenshots of this is what this person says. I'm not sure if i should brought it up. And i want to share with you. And i'm like my eyes are bugging anna. My head saying can't believe someone like this said this to anyone let alone at our conference but we do make a. We have a team focused on all the public channel communication that we can see. We obviously can't to the private ones but making sure that people are behaving doing what they're supposed to know one vendor pitching on occasion you get someone coming in like. Save ten dollars on my service. If you sign up in the next month for my free sast offering those people are those messages are deleted. Those people were blocked from the conference. We have a team looking at that kind of thing but the harassment stuff usually done a little more on private. If it's done we control that to make sure. They steve onference at scale does open a discussion to derrick diversity and inclusion you and i from the beginning of always known state of danger. It's not something that we need to shout from the rooftops. We do it idea that if you look across. The broad spectrum and speakers got diversity inclusion bill into the conference not on top of built into the conference and it's something i'm most proud. Yeah well as we're winding down. Do you guys have any predictions about the near future of devops. Gotta go away. He's heading your door if you're doing software development properly it's going to go back to what it was before devops. It's like when you talk to patrick devoy about devops inward came from if you talk to patrick about it. And the people like dave farley had penetrated people that started this whole idea. They were all doing it before it. Just didn't have a name with it. The guys that were really moving forward. Just didn't have the you had as we move forward if we're doing things properly the devops name itself the deb. Ops name will disappear because it will just be part of the process of building software and i think they the company that innovates faster is going to win in the market place in part of that innovation innovating faster as delivering better quality products to market or better quality services to market faster and quality means..

We have devops in government and then we have the cultural transformation track. And i think for a lot of managers out there that cultural transformation strack is the big thing. Like how do i influence change in my organization. Whether i'm a small nimble twenty person organization i want to hear from peers in the industry on that or whether i'm a forty thousand person large enterprise. That's one hundred years old. And i wanna hear from people like that that are presenting the that had that experience. I think the the breadth of tracks that we have makes the conference available in interesting to a wide swath of folks out there. But like i said you know most of it is Developers and devops engineers at the individual contributor level. But we do get you know quite a lot of management participation as well and. I think that's really where the feedback channels like slack are really important for people to make those industry connections and you'll have a place to keep those connections after the conference. So you if you were talking to ben trainers loss from google or kc rosenthal from barucha during the conference and you wanted to communicate with them later the slack channel that you were talking to them with enduring. The conference is the same slack channel. You can talk to them in next month or next week or next year. It provides that connection point. The the people necessarily don't get if you just went to a webinar. That pops up on your screen for an hour and then closes down or other. Virtual conference sites that the consistency and persistence of the environment. That we're setting up with all day. Devops is really important that we didn't wanna be show up once a year kind of conference and then go away for another year.

"So as mark said five years ago we were spending a lot of time. We still spend a good amount of time. Participating in devops in developer conferences as speakers. As well as organizers in some cases and yet we we'd recognize mark. And i would show up to an event you meet someone from bank of america or ebay or paypal or coca cola and you say hey. It's great that you're here. I see the two of you hear from this company. How many people do you have in your devops practice. And they said oh we have like six hundred people and we knew that we were getting this great experience from the community and people. We were learning from that. Were speaking at these conferences. People you're talking to in the hallway and we said there's enough interest in this devops space that i think we could pull conference together online and really make available to anyone. Everyone in these organizations. I bet thousand people would show up to this and five years ago. Thousand people at a conference especially you know whether it was physical or online. No one was doing online conferences. Back then would be huge. I think the biggest devops ops conference at the time was about six hundred people so we pulled this conference together with some friends in the community from different companies. We put it online. We made it free. We had i think almost sixty speaker that first year and thirteen thousand people showed up to that because they wanted to hear what the devops community had to say in we structured in a way that learning was a priority for everyone and we made access available to anyone that had internet access. Of course it was free to attend and the other thing that was really important to us from day. one was. We said no vendor pitches because we didn't want to hear out you end up in here puppet shaft and docker and everyone else just come in and present. Whatever their technology or tool was we just wanted practitioners and thought leaders to speak about. Here's what's happening in the community. Is that free learning opportunity. And since that first year we continued to run an online. We now run twenty four hours and we have between thirty and forty thousand people. Every year participate in the conference in one of the things. That's part of this jobs. That's critical to the success. Is we have to realize that physical conferences are geo located. I'm stating the obvious here. But what that means is you're limited to the audience. They can actually hear the message directly from the speakers not through recordings not through webinars or anything like that but actually almost one on one through live presentations. So i am in outlying areas. That's nowhere near center technology but providing a solution like this anyone in the world no matter their location can participate there. I think that's the thing that we discovered the first year that there was an audience. That was outside what had been perceived as core audience that one the education marijuana the knowledge could nobody was providing and i think the other thing so we didn't mention it's called all day dev ops so for those of you listening like what's this conference all day devops. It is the name of it. But i think the other thing that was key that we learned in the first year there was not a given it. All was that people's at you're going to do an online conference. It's going to be boring. It's just gonna be like a long webinar hallway track and we set up slack from day one as our hallway track in the opportunity to ask speakers questions interact with everyone participating in the conference and it was incredibly active. And you'll last year. I think we had one hundred thousand conversations in slack during the twenty four hours of the conference so just see people trading information trading code pointing the get hub repos. Here's where you can get that code and asking questions of experts in the industry that they want to normally have access to because that person is an expert but they live in the netherlands and the person asking them as in malaysia and those who would have never ended up at the same conference before we have. I think we have like one hundred and thirty three countries participating in the conference this year coming up on november twelfth. I want to poke your memory a little bit there care because this is one of my favorite visions of that first year when we implemented slack. Katie hiller had just come aboard. It was working with her remember. There's only six or eight of us. The first year we gathered in places got katie. Just pulled up a chair into a corner and got on slack. It didn't move for seventeen hours. It will it was fantastic to watch and you could see. There was something there engagement was happening. Now with us as the organizers but 'peer-to-peer within slack. And i've seen that continually now when i go into the oldie devops slack channel now the sledge environment daily people are in the different rooms talking to each other and as you said. There's absolutely no way they could have met each other other than the type of environment. Yeah so what. Kinds of conversations manifest at a devops conference certain things that that manifest through through these conversations are and i remember several of the conversation but there is a guy. Good friend of ours. Now larry matrimony who's at comcast and he's giving a presentation to stay. If this is how people adopt devops within my organization. And i have a scorecard that i use for each of the nine or ten business units that i work with coach. Undeb zek ops and people are like wow a scorecard for devops. I want to get a hold of that. Larry how do i get a hold of that. And he's either got a blog. A get hub age or whatever to give people access to that kind of scorecard so is learning exchange. That's happening someone like shannon lead to one of the original six seven people that we had organizing this concept of all day devops for the community. She had steps cops at into it and she's online. She's moderating the depth cops track that we have in the conference and she's hearing people present. This is what i've done in my organization. This is the tooling that that i use. These are the script that use. This is what i found out about the adversaries in in what they're doing in choosing can you give me that information. Can you share that information to make. Can you come and consult with me in my organization on that and we were joking just the other day on twitter back and forth because the night before this shoe we were walking in the neighborhood around the building where we are hosting the conference and she stepped in a hole and either broker foot or nearly broke her foot and it was swollen like twice. This is that it should have been but she was sitting in this chair. Moderating this track for like sixteen hours that day and she said i don't wanna get up from this chair not only our broken foot. I don't really wanna move. But i'm engaged so much with meeting new people in the community that i wouldn't have met and getting this information that mike organization needs to move its practice forward. This person has a specific technique. That i'm not using in my organization. I need to adopt a now. I know who this expert is. That slack conversation that was happening it wasn't shannon showing up in just listening. C- was able to engage back and forth with those people and i think you see that all the time and the other thing that arises. That's really neat and this just happened yesterday. So this is you know pre-conference but we have a leaderboard on our site. If you have twenty people register for your company we put your company name on the board. How many people have registered. Well pepsico has three hundred people registered and dr pepper curia curate has about three hundred people registered. So they're seeing each other on this leaderboard saying we have x. Hundred people registered. We want to be above the other one in the you know the internal cola wars that they have within their industry. But leon said you know. I want to meet leonid at dr pepper said. Can you introduce me to the person at pepsico. Cathy who's leaving their effort to get their organization involved in the conference where they're bringing hundreds of people. How do you work within an organization to educate that many people. How do you drive it internally. How do you get executive support. And he said hey. Can you connect me with this. Other person in the alday devops community. Because i want to learn that aspect of change management or cultural shift in an organization so those kinds of exchanges are happening in the community. Just organically as we build it and and connect people if you extend that idea to derrick when you think about it with the hundred eighty sessions or gonna have this year and in the previous years in comparable in the.

It's pretty much all parts of Wisconsin at this community spread, and then there's the colder weather that's pushing people indoors where transmission rate is higher, but there's a cycle to this virus but bars in. Some parts of the state were just crammed people state Senator Mark Miller saw the images of people taking advantage of the end of Wisconsin Safe Red home extension people listen restrictions, Kobe rates spike, and then restrictions are put back in place else officials say masks can slow the spread of Cova even though the numbers are soaring while the current mass order is in place largely some say because too many people aren't wearing them so. What we're seeing now is kind of what doctors here expected they're worried, and this is why a field hospital has been set up here in Milwaukee. Because of the spike in hospitalizations they need, they need an extra place to tend to these covert patients that's opening up today or different now than. Before the. We've left on our Gar one doctor. Put it. This way Wisconsin is in a state of crisis right now, it's not just up to the institutions, but it's up to the individual and we know that wearing a mask. So distancing that's where it's at right now because there is not a vaccine comes also as major companies working on potential vaccines and treatments have pressed the pause button Johnson and Johnson temporarily halted a late stage study due to an unexplained illness in one volunteer, and now ally Lily announcing its positive phase three trial for its antibody treatment. How come. Well there's a potential for for safety concern that's why they've pause to this antibody trial treatment So it's it's a setback especially since as you mentioned, Johnson. Johnson. Paul's thereby axiom file when a ball in tear became sick. And Astra, Zeneca doing the same Madonna and Pfizer are still on track and we have to keep in mind even though it may be discouraging to hear that Another drugmaker or vaccine maker has put their trials on hold. We have to remember that doctor say these kinds of developments are common when it comes to clinical trials.

"70 will give you the number of the special offer again to the end of the show in a few minutes, but lots to cover today we'll get back. To it here with Sherry Tar Coast. Can you share with us? A quick study or two to sort of back this up? Highlight the science behind the elite asked his anthem That's found and asked the FX because I know they're what dozens and dozens of studies maybe you can pull out highlight a couple of your favorites for sure. So Dr Mark Miller, he's a peach, the biomedical researcher. He explains it well, and he's talking here about how free radicals compromise and undermine function and cellular performance in the body, he says, asked his aunt, and it simply Superb at negating this as evidence by clinical trials showing improved performance and accelerated recovery. In fact, research, published in the Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise found that those who took 4 MG of aspirin xanthan daily over 20 days scored better cycling times with greater output than those who did not take it for the bike faxed me remember this accident and is one of the few that pliable antioxidants that can actually neutral? Three radicals, even at the sight of the mitochondrial membrane. It's like cellular body armor, protecting yourselves your joint bloodbath of brain, heart and organs on many levels. That is impressive on so many levels so much great information there, And I know this asked his Anthony has about a dozen patents to I'm looking here. I see. There's a patent for promoting eye health, then reducing eye fatigue. There's a patent for inhibiting the expression of sight o kinds and cells and a patent get this Composition for body fat reduction. There's one for improving muscle atrophy and older adult sherry. I like to be a little bit of a skeptic here. How can this one simple nutrient magically do all of this? How can this asked the FX give us so many benefits? I mean, really, Yeah, I know it sounds amazing, too good to be true, But it really is true. Many of the studies that I'm referencing here they're available on Pub Med. These air, reputable clinical studies conducted by leading researchers around the world that Really back. The benefits of asked is Anthony, by the way, muscle output is better with us. Xanthan too, And this comes from after xanthan research, published in The International Journal of Sports Nutrition November 2011. This is another study done with cyclists. They took 4 MG of aspirin xanthan. It was a small study, but very positive showing that cyclist improved their trial time by two minutes in a 20 kilometer bike race mean that's a meaningful improvement in a race like this. The researchers said that they also burned fat more efficiently, which makes sense, based on the three search purity can actually make the claim that asked. The effects will promote and improve power output in your muscles. I mean, I tell people asked the effects in his strength and power. It's transformative if you like energy. And this was found in other studies to like one that looked at hand grip strength, so much great information necessary. I want to share a couple more testimonials that caught my attention out of so many right there on the purity website again. These air unsolicited these air from really people. Here's one from Rick is a male age 55 to 64 lives in Naples, Florida He writes this What a great product asked. The FX has been for me after starting taking asked, affects my workout and strength has increased as if I were in my twenties again, and I've only been on asked affects for two months now can't wait to see the long term effect. I look forward to taking asked to FX every morning for my afternoon workouts. I'll be taking this product for a long time. There's DDS. He's a female age 45 to 54th lives in Laurel Park, North Carolina. She writes, this quote I've been using asked the FX for a month now. And see the difference in my energy level. I now have more energy feel better Since taking this product. I can actually see a difference in my skin as well. I'm a smoker who has smoking lines around my mouth, but the lines have diminished about 50%. Overall. I am so thrilled with my energy level. I love this product, just couple of samples from the real people who have responded impurities, website and Cherry. I'm looking at the list of patents again on this asked his anthem compound. This is where the science the research backs up. What we're talking about. This is just flat out amazing and sharing. A lot of people out there are going to think what I'm going to say here sounds a little bit odd. But you said before the show this supplement may even help people drive a car better or used the computer more comfortably and come on. How does this happen? It does sound funny, but I asked FX may actually help in these areas to and and here's why. One of the interesting things about asked Xanthan is that it's a relative of vitamin A, and we know that vitamin A is good fries. Good for vision asked the Stanton is too As the sands has actually been shown to fight oxidation in eye tissue. Scientists did a study where they found a 46% improvement in a measurement called depth perception that depth perception that their ability to determine distances between objects are basically to see in three dimensions and researchers. They studied a handball team specifically looking at how quickly they could change focus. And guess what. The handball team that was supplementing with Astor xanthan. They were able to improve their accuracy and improve their performance in the depth perception test. Other research is also shown that asked his aunt and helps reduce eye fatigue. And you know when you're on a computer, that's a big deal. Everyone's on computers these days and for long periods of time, and it's hard on our eyes and we know that if you're driving a car and it's late at night, and your reaction time is slow. That's not good. After Santa and actually helped the eyes focus and refocus doctor hacked. Ph. D. One of the leading researchers at Astor Riel says that the product actually help your ID be more resilient. You see better with it your eyes they're healthier. I mean, who doesn't love those benefits again? We're talking with pharmacist and health author Sherry Tar Coast about a free bottle offer from purity products..

"A few times and I must say that You know Mr Hyland's vision when it came to the business was pretty phenomenal. Back in those days in the fifties sixties and seventies when you worked for Gulf oil. And you're trying to make a deal with somebody at Unbeliever Texaco. You literally walked across the street or next door and the oil center and said let's go to lunch and talk this over and then you might go out and compete against each other buying leases. But by night you were over there patting each other on the back and there's a lot of combranch back to something that we all miss but it makes me smile and think about it. It was a different day but I mean it was a different time post World War. Two and I think everybody was just experiencing You know for the first time in decades the ability to make some money in Lafayette certainly attracted them. And we still. Do you know even with the oil and gas issues. I know that we're still attracting entrepreneurs and so it's my hope that through some of this mark there might be some new technologies that are developed in combination with our new IT sector. That's moving in and perhaps some of these issues on the price of drilling for oil. You can be Enhanced that's my hope. So and I agree and I I must shout out to the people of Acadian. Ah In their indefatigable spirit and ingenuity that they export all around the world in terms of oil and gas and and the slides into other businesses as well. Which is what you're suggesting so we do have a very entrepreneurial spirit here and we will make something out of this Janna also wanted to say that it's important for most people think your listeners would be interested in the fact that independence like Badger oil and Mac energy here in town. Still Jill Eighty three percent of the oil wells in the United States and ninety percent of natural gas wells if not all the Exxon's and they Chevrons that drill the wells. The independence still make up the drilling of most new wells so important to remember that as we go forward you know. I just assumed it was the excellent and the shells there deepwater drilling and are those older production sites. Well those are. Those are big capital items. I guess I should have said Onshore USA onshore. So I'm probably misspoken but the independence or the guys that really keep keep the oil in the top and they're obviously the ones that are going to be hurt as much as the rest of the country and the big oil companies world. We're going to be hurt bonus so you would ask about some ideas to to help us and I had a couple of those that you don't know what are some policy. Are just anything that you think happens during well. I know the Mineral Board. As recently as last week was discussing looking at state leases in talking about loyalty relieve so a reduction in the royalty. That's paid to the state on a state lease would help the people that are producing almost leases most which are older releases except maybe in the Hanes Ville Shale. They're fairly new. So royalty look relief on those leases would would help the oil company in the short term with these decline the huge decline in prices. And the other thing and I I was able to testify in front of the Senate and the House about two weeks ago. The budget for this year for Louisiana was based on sixty one dollar oil obviously with oil West Texas Intermediate Trading at twenty four dollars a barrel and Louisiana light at twenty two dollars a barrel today. We're way off that mark so one of the things I was suggesting was if the legislature would forgive consider forgiving for a short period of time. perhaps six months to start with the severance taxes that we pay on oil and natural gas again leading the companies survive through this terrible collapse as we addressed in the opening for this interview. We need a little time and breathing room to get through this about at the federal level. Mark you've mentioned to me that Do we have import taxes on an oil like we do not and it has been bandied about it recently. As last Friday at the White House there were several oilmen that went out there and discuss that It's the large independent really. Pushed it stronger than the majors because the majors have ties around the world in other markets as well so the independence have been talking about that for very long time and trying to protect the people at home and it hasn't really caught fire and the way it might but the discussion still going on and there's several. Us senators such as Kevin Kramer. That's supporting that idea as well with letters to the president so. I'm sure it's on the president's desk asking him to give it some thought about our senators. I think Senator Kathy's embrace part of it as well I. I've not read everything that sort of Kennedy said about it and Senator Kennedy. But they know what's at stake in Louisiana and they know that I'm sure they're doing everything they can to help us in regard to helping our industry as president trump supportive of all of it. Land Gas industry absolutely. He has been a tremendous supporter. Helped in a Lotta ways of curtailing duplicity duplicitous regulations and and some problems that we've had but of course this this oil price and the pandemic who could have seen this coming right. Well how many independence do we have left here? Mark Not a hard number. It is that basically the the group of producers that are here in. Lafayette in South Louisiana. Yeah they're they're not many left Most all the major will all the major oil companies did without we have Petra quest is still. Here is a public company course. Stone left a couple of years ago. So we do not have Any big big companies here today certainly each and every once extremely important as I said what they all contribute to finding on gas and keeping us in the mix so but we have lost a lot of the big companies who've relocated to Houston or Dallas or elsewhere and a lot of our residents are working elsewhere. And they keep their homes here. I make sure that's true People at work here that her chilies husband works over in Texas and he's gone to two weeks and then comes back for week. So they're they're traveling and they're working hard to keep the business alive because there's money back here in Louisiana right have I asked You What she thought we discuss. Are there any topics that we need to touch on? I think that's it. I think that the state legislature needs to realize that this is unlike anything we've ever seen before and the oil and gas business that feeds our families and puts her kids You know through school and and everything that contributes to our our welfare here in this town No matter who you are is important. Industry needs to remain viable so anything that can be done to help the oil and gas industry. We're all asking. Please do it now. Don't wait til later. Yeah I know I second that and I want to thank you. Mark Miller for taking the time to work with me on this podcast and to share your information and again your With Merlin Oil and gas if people WANNA know more about you and I'll put all that on my show notes on my website. Discover Lafayette but I wanNA thank you for sharing your thoughts and we're talking about it. I want to thank our legislators for the work. They've done and looks like they're gonNa have a lot of work to do to balance our budget given the price of a barrel of oil at this point so about a lot. It's really an interesting time. I'd like to second that they're doing a Yeoman's job over there. Some of them are doing it from afar but they're all giving their time and effort on our behalf. So thank you all of them.

"And all of a sudden. Your product is devalued to the point where you can't sell it you can't give it away so you're faced with shutting in the wells and shutting into production and if you do that you run the risk that someone else will not be easily turn back on if you will win. The prices. Go back up. They'll require workover and maintenance after having sat there for sometimes gas wells are usually Less of a problem depending on the particular wells themselves so it's not just a light switch like we're used to it's going to it's going to require some startup time. Less money was crying. You know back in the seventies. When I was in high school I remember waiting in line to get gas and sometimes you couldn't get it and we were energy dependent in those days and I know that through the years now. The United States become a bigger exporter of sealed in an importer. And this could turn around on a dime. And that's when the reasons we're here is because when we were able to pass the oil export Through Congress we're able to begin selling overseas in two thousand fifteen then we were able to to compete on the world market. We weren't just having to consume the oil within our shores so that was a very important move for country and our our strategic independence but it's also led to Saudi Arabia and Russia. Eyeing and say we don't want them to have that much control. We don't want them to be the powerful in the world market and that some retaliation. We're feeling now in my opinion right and I know in this latest stimulus package. That was two point two trillion. Many people thought that the oil and gas industry was left out because there was no money putting on to buy up some of these Access oil products. Right is that that's correct. We are able to you know we are going to the other store. Oil in the strategic petroleum reserves one of which is that weeks island not very far from us there are others nearby but the problem with that is not everybody will be able to take advantage of that not all companies are have the capacity or the means logistically to get the oil there in a timely fashion. And frankly there's enough storage space to to cover the billion barrels oil that are flooding the market. So it it. It's a good stuff in the right direction. But it's not going to solve the entire problem right right. I wish there was some magic bullet. I'd like to pause there if you don't mind I'd like to Take a moment for discover Lafayette's passed.

"He also serves on the board of the Louisiana Oil and Gas Association Mark Miller welcome to discover. Lafayette thank you Jan. And May I say welcome for the second time I've taping us in my home study and you your good friend from our church. Asbury United Methodist. And you're also a good front for learning with me as I'm adjusting to the the Cova nineteen pandemic you know in taping this show at home so thank you. Well I guess so you know I wanted to get you on the show. Mark it really. I was I guess inspired by and also frightened by an article. You sent me About the oil collapse. That was written a few days ago. And I thought it'd be timely for us to talk about the oil and gas business not only in Louisiana but worldwide. So before we start that. Would you please give us your background? I know you've got thirty years of experience and you moved here after college if you could talk about that. I sure I moved down here and went to work in the oil business. And nineteen eighty eighty one and have been working as a landman ever since nineteen eighty one at Become a home and I love it and while I travel back and forth. This is definitely my home right. So what brought you till Louisiana though to begin wet well I wanted to get into business? I had some friends in the oil and gas business and they were told me that it was exciting and as a young person there was a world of opportunity. And that's why I came right so you moved here right out of college and I do have to point out that I moved here in. Nineteen eighty-three after law school and everything was really good. And then within just a short time we had a huge crash in the oil business in Louisiana and you survived that nineteen eighty. Six was a tough time. My partner showing badly myself really hunkered down and we would play little games with each other such as I would buy lunch one day. I'll he would my lunch the next day out so we can tell our to our wives. We didn't buy lunch every day. But we We managed to to get through it. It was a tough time price. Oil fell drastically down eight dollars a barrel but it but it did rebound and we managed to stay in the business did an earlier podcast early in. The show's tenure. With Charlie Goodson of Charlie. Jeez and he told me how he and Kim Veron would charged for launch with the price of a barrel of oil was. I remember those days and we're laughing about it but you know they were tough times and you. You made it and that's kind of indicative of our whole community. I think in South Louisiana and Acadia. We have a wildcatter mentality and people keep on going even when the going tough. But we're really facing tough times today. Aren't we well? There's no question? This is a serious time. An issue for the oil and gas industry especially a K. Deanna Brought on by some other factors besides this crooner nineteen virus ride It seems like just a couple of months ago when people would speak about problems. Oil and gas industry had they were talking about the legacy lawsuits and policy related. Things and I know that seems like a long time ago but would touch on out of your thoughts about Louisiana in. What are you know what our hopes for the future once we get through this if we continue with the current policies? You know so. I was speaking with a gentleman. Yesterday's chairman of Independent Oil Company. And we were talking but he's just been involved in a legacy lawsuit and he was musing on the phone. Saying you know I have a chance to work in Texas or Oklahoma and this was prior to see nineteen. Of course he said but I I would not choose to come back to Louisiana with the coastal lawsuits. And so that's part of the problem. Our new business in the last few years has declined because people were afraid to come here and now coupled with this pandemic our business. What's left of? It's getting squeezed from all sides. And you've chosen to stay here and now you tell me that most of your work and your investments are in this area if you could expand on that. My career has been primarily in the Gulf coast area in production. I have is a fifty mile radius from Lafayette. And that's where I I've made my living and continue to do so right now. It seems that there's no demand for fossil fuels and I wanna read a sentence from the article you sent me and I want to quote the author. It's Daniel Uragan. Who wrote in foreign affairs in this article that I referenced that she sent me? But he's saying that The price war with producing nations battling for market share has become lodged in the larger crisis of the novel current virus pandemic and we'll be the worst recession since World War. Two the resulting collapse in demand will be bigger than any recorded since oil became a global commodity commodity. Oil prices are already down two thirds since the beginning of two thousand twenty and still falling. How can that be so fast? It is like I said we in Acadian Louisiana. We already had legacy hanging over us. And then the price of oil has continued to collapse. both the Saudis and the Russians are taking advantage of the fact that they would like to increase their market share not some of the shale producers out of being able to do what they do so well making us energy independent and providing us with the platform well with the slide in oil prices show plays or not economical at anything below forty five dollars a barrel or forty two dollars a barrel depending on where it is so companies are taking breath and saying. Can we drill at these prices or do we not do anything to we? Just put it on the shelf right now and depending on where you drill. I guess what price of oil has to bring varies to make you profitable if you can touch on that. It's true I mean the also around ten dollars a barrel in the Permian. Some people are still able to make money eight dollars in the box and some people are still make money. Because of their long term term investment in resources they put out there lower lease operating costs ins on their infrastructure. But I think it's fair to say that everybody is hurting because of these prices and the real problem is you and I have discussed before is that we got so much oil on the market and no place to send it for sale. It's stuck and stranded in We're calling in a contraction situation Demand contraction but in fact. It's just demand contraction an oversupply so. I didn't realize until I read this article by Yorgen that there was an OPEC. Plus if I'm pronouncing that right I knew about OPEC nations getting together to you. Know kind of as as mutually beneficial to look at the output that each country will commit to but this has fallen apart to right this second. Opec. Plus Ev rings our part. Absolutely everybody's trying to figure out what to do. In the midst of this crisis and the the OPEC countries that were pretty strategically aligned. For many many years fell apart Back in two thousand fourteen and have had trouble getting back together so then they realigned and now they're fractionation because nobody really understands what to do and of course Saudis. The leader wow. They are heavily dependent on oil and gas. Obviously that's what they do and and their economies addicted to it their social their social programs are very expensive and when they sold well lower prices. They're not able to fund those programs for their people. So I'm sure they're getting pushback back. But they are the swing. The swing country in terms of they have more flexibility to ramp up the production. Two million barrels a day unlike any other country in the world and I'm sure the Saudis want to be on good terms with both Russia and the US attorney. Yeah Yeah so in that same article. What really got me was. It's possible that a barrel of oil could be valued at zero. And that's because of the glut that's on the market and the declining storage capacity. Now what what's that about well in in that? Think about this. You Go and you spend your capital dollars. You get together. You drill an oil. Well it successful. It's producing it's creating revenue for not just the company that's producing it but also the landowners because they get their share the royalty from the oil and gas lease it matriculated down to many many people in.

And we had a conversation about Gorelick so sunny, I think you have Mark Miller before as well. So where did you learn about Mark and his work? Everyone knows what. Now, I work on cosmos, and we're focused on like sending interoperability between blockchain and sending assets between Blockchain's and so back when crypto katie's first came out. I had a question about cosmos, which made me like I was asking myself. Okay. I can send my crypto Katie from my theory blockchain to nother blockchain, but how do I breathe Mike crypto Katie on the other blockchain, and like if I want to breed my because that's the whole point of the game. Right. You wanna like breed all these crypto kitties? And stuff. And so I realized oh wait every time. I have to go back to theory. And then I kind of you know, I think I've got who it was maybe sake he mentioned to me that like, oh, you know, check out this Gorelick thing. I think that's the key to this entire thing. And so I I kinda deep dive into it. And I just got so amazed. I read this paper by Mark called financial instruments capabilities and that paper like, whoa, this is so cool and just like got me really obsessed with it. And then so I'm really happy that now a gory they've been actually very working very closely with cosmos now, they're helping us on the IBC specification and whatnot.

And like, you know, these are how many of know in my mind, they're considered like the greats of like the cipher punk movement. And so I'm super excited to get the opportunity to work more closely with him nowadays. Yeah. I mean, there's definitely so many interesting concepts hair, and it's not an easy. It's not easy understand. I think, but you know, people who wanna get into reads, all of these different mechanisms and architectures of a centrist computing and this kind of like digital economies.

We've moved around a little bit but stayed mostly northern indiana. And you're near this week to do what race going. Same thing as another two thousand athletes. Yeah you in two thousand of your best right one hundred ninety nine. Best brown's yes in this is your second trip tacona right it is made you wanna come back. I was here in two thousand twelve and you know. I think the goal was to always do this race. And once i finally achieved that and came in an accomplish that It was just a kind of almost Obviously a life dream. I guess must point in my life and I was very much satisfied. And i think the The drive to do the race again. Came probably maybe four months after doing it the first time. Yeah once the honeymoon's type of fan going goes away you kind of just wanna come back. I mean you know it kind of comes down again and you want to do something big again. What's bigger than conan. What does he young go ahead. What are some of the things about conan. That just has that draw for you. I think it's probably just the biggest thing that you can do in the sport that were in. You know it's you know. Obviously this has been used a lot but it's like the world series of triathlon and endurance triathlon. And so if you're in love with the sport and i am obviously in many others are this is just i. Think the race that People look at they see it on. Tv they just dream of doing this event. Yeah so and how about for you. Was there one particular aspect that made you want to come back or is it a package of things. It was definitely a package of things you know. I'm the kind of guy that i think for one thing. I like to race in the heats. Thank you got to go like. i do better. Maybe in the heat than others do so. It gives me a better chance. Maybe yeah and But i think just the the when i was here the last time in two thousand twelve. It's such a magical place. The energy that that. I wish she could bottle the energy race week. I mean it's just incredible and it's the type of thing that you you think about every day after you do the race. He just wish you could have a rewind button. Go back and and put yourself on the queen k. Again or swimming in the with a fish out there. That's just one of those things that you wish you could repeat. Yeah so the actual experience of race day itself was really meeting phenomenal. Yeah so surreal. You get in the water just like you watch on television you you. You swim out of the starting line and you look back at the spectators. Think i'm here. I'm doing this It does get a little You do suffer a little bit out there on the bike and on the run but you you you just constantly remind yourself in what i'm in kona. I mean enjoy the said in a month from now. I'm going to look back and say why can't i do that again. You know and so. I just tried to. You know mentally. Tell myself enjoy the moment. Yep don't worry about the pain you're going through and just enjoy this. 'cause you're gonna you're gonna wish that you could relive it again time. Did you have any Traveling role wallows anyone that you looked for inspiration You know there's so many role models there right now. There's a lot of people that are doing a lot of good for the sport right now. You know i would say. Probably the person that i think. I admire a lot right now as craig alexander. He's such a You know he's Choose my words correctly here you know. He's getting older in the sport. He's done already so much for the sport He he's a great example of an athlete. A good true honest athlete And he continues to come back and give back and you know sit down with athletes and talked athletes and and things like that and He's done some great things as far as training and his racing. Obviously and so. I think i mean there's you know obviously people that are here that are just as good role models. But i think he's. He's probably one guy that i look at that. I admire a lot. Yeah You said that after you did the race in two thousand twelve took a full year off of training yes sales with that was like and what did that do for you mentally physically. Yeah so my my beloved kind of qualifying in in two thousand twelve was about three years of solid kind of solid training and racing. And you know. I tried to qualify each of those three years and missed and then on the third year finally qualified for kona so i did Kona for in two thousand twelve and it was just a it was After you know the second and third year of the trying and the racing and the letdown of not getting there and then finally doing it. It was just I needed a break from racing and and from training also It's a hard sport. It's hard on your body and Yeah i think you're you're mentally. You just need that time on I gotta tell you that year. That i took off was great for my mind and my body and my family and there was just so many positive things know from being away from the just every day training type of a thing and striving for that you know god do kona thing and so it was a great. It was a great break Did my mind and my body a lot of good and then when you start back up training He said you're working with the coach. Yes rob and said hey. Coach got a year. Get me back. Yeah no i said. I think i wanna start racing again in. And he said good. Well let's get started. And i said okay but i want to try to go for conan in this year so i knew taking your off. I'm starting kind of from scratch. And so i said okay great and i kind of i kind of think. Maybe he thought under his under his breath okay. Yeah let's think realistically here but You know he's he's a great guy. Great coach zach ruble. Okay professional triathlete himself but i. I've been coached him for while during my three years drove up kona last time. Yeah and he just knows me well enough and what i can take and He does a fabulous job. Prepping you training you. And then even race week leading up to it you know how to taper you and.

"Just sort of smells like smoke. If you smoke with hickory, everybody goes odds hickory. You're making barbecue. Yeah. Yeah, sure. Any smoke with mosquito then? Definitely the house is on fire. So that was, that's my barbecue story of dumb. Story of dumb. Okay. Now that's not to Mark Miller story of them. There you go. Funny. Mark Miller actually said in the chat room. I smoked at the pork butter overnight title of my autobiography. Thanks mark. All right, noth- chitchat. I remember you starting to play with twitch. And I had a couple of interesting conversations because it didn't go the way you plan. Can you talk about how you got involved and you know what happened? Gosh, we were. We were at Vegas for Dev intersection in the in the fall. Right? Was it lasts only last year was the twenty sixteen only last year only twenty seventeen. All right. I know it's. It's been nine months. I've been doing it. Yeah, and we we had this conversation around, you know, hate our our friends, Susan's doing some really neat things out there with Java scrip- programming one day on the weekends, showing how some of the stuff is built, really what you know, developers build with Java scrip-. I started taking a look at it and I'm like, well, I've got a little bit of a radio voice this. This might be a little bit fun. And this was a case where what happened in Vegas didn't stay in Vegas. And I said, we'll have got a microphone of got some of this stuff. You know, nobody's really talking about dot net, nobody in which is kind of different environment that not a lot of folks in the dot net community. Hang out at sure. Yeah. It's an opportunity to speak to younger folks to students. But also have that worldwide reach and bring in folks who aren't used to seeing dot net who aren't used to having that access that smiling face. And we started very simple. Like, you know what? Let me let me just start writing a little bit of code. I started working on a visual studio extension. It was something that I have been wanting to do for a while as a web forms developer. I thought, you know what? I've got long compile times. Yeah. So let me write an extension that play some music during that compile time, and I was I was in love with it. It was that year that year worm of the epic. Sax guy from the euro music competition, right from he was originally from Moldova, and it was the European music competition somewhere in Scandinavia. Forget which one it was like two thousand twelve and it was his guy plan sacks and it was Eurovision. That's what it was. Thank you chat room. Okay. And I loved it and I wanted that on loop while my code was being built that way. I could use it at other. Events and have this funny thing playing in the background. I was thinking acne sacks, but that's just me. I was thinking Kenny g. go looks like rob Windsor agrees with you Kennedy. So I thought this'll be great. This'll be a lot of fun to do, and I wired it up and got it. Got it. Working in started building some things around it online. It was like, well, this isn't too bad. This kind of fun. And I slowly started building adding new features. And I was like, well, I'm not quite somewhere where I'm engaged yet. And in the folks that are on mixer might be interesting to engage with. And of course the bosses called right and Scott said to me, it'd be nice if you could go on mixer also. So I sort of broadcasting over there at the same time. Right? And I was like, I can't manage to these streams with some of the tools that are out there. I need to do something to manage both at the same time. So I started writing some tools to manage dual streaming. And then a weird thing happened. I got a pull request and I got a couple more pull requests..
