"So it's like sure, 'cause what they really need is for max Muncie to recover his form. It's like, oh, his elbows all better actually for real now, maybe he's a good max Muncie again, because, you know, they just didn't have enough hitters. They were like, we don't have enough of those. We just need him to be himself again. Joey Gallo, 120 WRC plus is a Thatcher. It's because he gets to live by the beach now, but he doesn't feel confined in his New York environs. But people had so fussy when people talk about leaving New York and I'm here to tell you, you know, some of the takes are bad and some of them are fine and if you just didn't react to any of them, they maybe would stop. Chill. It's fine. No one has been happier to leave New York than Joey Gallo. So, you know, if this very small sample resurgence continues, I don't know that we even need to credit great Dodgers, hitter development. Certainly is a skill that they possess, but also Joey Gallo was really good for a long time. This is who you would expect Joey Gallo to be. And we talked like when the Ben intended trade happened, it's like, you know, I noted that Gallo had better projections than intending to know. If he had remained in New York, would he have played to those projections? Well, based on his mindset, in the quotes that we went over, I doubt it. Whether he can just immediately leave that behind him and go back to who he was in Los Angeles, I don't know, but nice way to start for him. So I'm happy for him that he is hopefully in a better place. Psychologically speaking. I just look forward to the plucky Seattle Mariners making their first World Series against this dominant Dodgers human getting absolutely slaughtered. Yep. It's not funny, but it would be, it would be a story we'd have some stories. Yeah, and just to close the loop on that playoff hud segment, the teams other than the Red Sox and giants that lost a lot over the past month and a little bit, the brewers down about 22 percentage points, the raised 17, the twin 17 and a couple other teams with single digit losses the angels the marwan's and the White Sox, who have hemorrhaged playoff probability all year. The White Sox, you know, there have been a few notable entries this week, greater of late, not just the chrysale one. Also Matt Carpenter, the best hitter in baseball, Matt Carpenter. He fractured a ball off his foot and he's going to be out for a while. Also, the White Sox will be without Tim Anderson for some time, potentially the rest of the season. Hopefully not, but that is on the table. And that's a big blow to them, and they just continued to underperform and hang in there. They're close enough that, you know, I think they were most people's preseason picks and we were all thinking, oh, the twins just don't have the pitching to hang in that race and lately. They haven't looked like they have the pitching, the pitching is broken down a bit, even though they reinforced it at the deadline, and so it's not like the white flags are out of this thing, but they just can not get anything going really. They're just a game over 500 still and their playoff odds were down about 5 percentage points since July 7th. So they're now at about 40% to make the playoffs and maybe a one in four shot to win that division according to the odds here. So really, one of the most underperforming disappointing teams relative to pre season projections and expectations. Yeah, it's just, in some respects, it is a testament to the talent that they do have on that roster that they have kind of remained in it, even if more on the periphery than we were anticipating coming into the season, but it just has not it has not gone great in ways that have often been outside their control and then the stuff that has been inside their control, they've seemed like their content to just be like, well, this is our team. This is, here we go. Here's our team, and you know, I think that the twins and two illustrations, the guardians have been like, hey, thanks, you know? Right. Minnesota was actually busy at the deadline Cleveland was not, but now, you know, Steven Kwan hit a home run, so who cares, you know? Yeah, I'm happy with how Juan has performed since that first weekend, just going totally wild and everyone getting super excited about Stephen Quan like obviously he has not hit nearly as well since then, but he's been okay, you know? He's been fine. Okay, no one really believed that he was going to be a superstar just because of that tiny whittle hot streak that he had at the beginning of the season, but he has continued to perform the way we thought he would in the sense that he doesn't strike out and just does that miss the ball and has that extremely level swing and contact oriented approach and he has a one 21 WRC plus on the season with more walks than strikeouts more than 400 plate appearances and I suppose actually one 25 after the home run today as we're recording. So, you know, I mean, if you subtracted his flurry of hits from those first few games, I guess it wouldn't look quite as impressive, but like he's been good, you know? You subtracted his putrid may you could say the same thing, right? Right, if we take out anyone's hottest streak and colder streak. But on the whole, not a small sample at all. He has been a very productive player who has been worth, you know, two and a half wins according to fangraphs word. Again, this was a guy who was not ranked on top press spec except for fan crafts race, so I would say that that's a win, you know, not a superstar, but productive player. He's held his own. Yeah, you know, it's such a funny thing. I think that getting on the one hand, like you want credit, but you don't want to be, you know, getting overly fussed about this stuff can lead you to madness, right? Because on the one hand, you're right. We were the only outlet that had him ranked on the top 100. We had him ranked as the 50. It wasn't like he was like a 70 for us, you know? He was a 50. We were like, this guy's belongs in the top 100. He's going to be a productive big leaguer. He has been that. It's good. It's fine. It's just such a funny, it's such a funny thing because I think that there is a satisfaction and a validation of process to be like, yeah, like we got this guy right, but there are other guys we didn't. So I don't know, it's just like it's hard to be, you don't want to be overly sassy because I don't think that that's especially productive, but you also want to say, hey yeah, we got that one, right? From so if we look at his, I think, you know what, I think this is like a good indication of who quant can be. So his early part of the season. How did that? His may, putrid. If we go from June 1st to yesterday, he's got a one 30 WRC plus three 29 three 85 four ten hitter. That seems right, you know? That's like, welcome to Stephen Quan. It's fine. Yeah. And speaking of other guardians who have been doing well, Tristan Mackenzie is someone I've liked for a while and have been pulling for it because he was my breakout pick this year.

"Were, they had their chances to win the game and couldn't get it done. This game, Kevin Durant was trying to establish himself. Kyrie was trying to establish himself and Bruce Brown was the beneficiary of a lot of the attention. Those two guys got. But once the game settled down a little bit, and then you had to go through KD. You had to go through Kyrie. The south weren't having it. Like I said, Marcus smart, I think this is maybe the best defensive game he's had all season. When you look at just his impact, defensively, the fact that Kyrie had just ten points, and I think he may have had two, maybe four against Marcus, if that. When you look at kairi's body of work, or you put that at the top of the resume on a game like this, you know, a playoff game, prime time, up against two of the most talented offensive players in the league for quite some time now. Marcus marwan's defensive player of the year award. And that's when you start to hear a lot of people say, really? Like, where did that come from? You know, what since when was he in the running? Does he really deserve it? Why wasn't it go bear? Why was this guy or this so and so was screwed? Marcus smart here is that. We know we know he's keen to what's being said about him. And I'm not saying that, first of all, Marcus smart doesn't I don't think he needs to prove to anybody that he is a defensive player of the year. I think that his highlight reels his stats, his style of heart, whatever you want to call it. I think that all speaks for itself. And I think that enough people have recognized that this season, and he's earned the award, rightfully so. But you wouldn't be Marcus smart if you didn't go out there and play with a little bit of a chip on his shoulder and say, oh, oh really? You still don't think so, huh? Okay. Well, how's this look? What do you think now? What do you think after we go out there and I shut down Kyrie Irving and we make it extremely miserable for Kevin Durant, you know? So I think it's just another feather in the cap, I guess, from Marcus smart season. Don't forget there was a lot of people. Me included, I'll say it. I was a little skeptical about the contract extension at the time. I didn't know if that was the greatest deal. But now I can't imagine there's anybody out there that would even think twice to re sign that contract to resign Marcus smart for the money days making..

"For value in Europe If you look at China slowing down recession risk in the United States of America ever escalating incremental but sizable sanctions against Russia Why is it that Europe delivers perhaps a defensive position for you in equity exposure with those headwinds lashing at its shores I think that's what the market knows and that's what the market's pricing in and that's why the equity risk premium in Europe is I think the highest in the last 20 years And part of it is due to the fact that real rates are deeply negative in Europe But I think if the ECB delivers on its we expect it to be delivered to around on its week your apology reached Europe policy And started a gradual hiking path that gives first support to the Euro Second market if you look at the pricing of especially cyclical equities in Europe they are not even pricing in growth in pricing and decrease in volumes and decreasing margins So on a valuation basis they do look interesting We are very conscious of the fact that it's not easy to buy Europe right now And we think that if you want to buy Europe a place that you can use to hedge European exposure is European high yield of European crossover because they the European high yield is very expensive relative to the equity trade right now So if investors are worried about European exposure you have to look at the credit part of the bit where you have to be more concerned about rather than the equities Ashish thank you very much for reflecting on some of the house views there Ashish marwan the ADS investment solutions CIO So we've got much more to come on the program This.

So, and this bag says thank you for shopping with us. Okay, I don't know where it came from. But it's definitely a plastic bag. And I'm going to reach into this. Wow. Yeah, listen to that crunch. Okay. Now I'm going to reach in even further. And what? Okay. I've opened a bottle of Augustine Reyes, royal violets, baby cologne. It's a purple bottle of a liquid that is apparently a cologne for babies. Yes. Chris, what's happening here? Well, this was a gift for my baby from my mother. A type of just very traditional Cuban baby call out, which if you ever wonder what culture will raise someone into becoming Pitbull one day, you might want to maybe it's because he's been wearing cologne since a baby. But I am certainly not putting this on our baby and so I thought I would maybe just give it to you and see if maybe you would have a stab at it or what you really think about this baby cologne. I want to smell this. Oh, that's absolutely a cologne. It does smell like, I mean, it's not like you would put this on an adult man. This is like, if you smell the baby that smells like this, you would think that they were a gigolo or something. Yeah, this is a man out on the prowl. My mother wants to put that on her one year old daughter. Which apparently I wore it. And then my nieces and nephews who were older now who are my mom's other grandkids. We've all worn this Cuban baby cologne. So is there just one type of baby cologne? There's a couple competitors. They don't have the total market cornered, but this is probably the most popular. I would say it's the jakar noir of the baby cologne market. It really has a really strong smell. I thought it would smell more like violets or something. It smells more like maybe like one of those massage chairs in a car wash. Really smells like, wow, this is smells like a little bit like a DJ Khaled or some real machismo. I noticed this before I wanted to take a good look at it before I gave it to you, but if you take a look on the back, it says a couple things back. Okay, so it says enjoy the clean mild and long-lasting fragrance of royal violets. Celebrating more than 85 years, it is a, it is truly a modern classic. And then keep out of reach of small children, which I feel like goes against everything this product is. Avoid contact with the eyes. External use only flammable until dry, which is a rough thing to hear about some of your spraying on your baby. Hopefully your baby's not smoking when you're spraying them. And if you put that on your kid, you're probably actively smoking yourself. It is not a great, you know, it's like oh wow. So your mom would put this on you as a baby. Yeah, apparently I would wear it as a baby. She had given it away as gifts before I was in, I was in first grade and I went to this boy's birthday party and, you know, my parents, I love them. They're amazing, but as immigrants, they don't really always know the culture or the rules or stuff like that. So I go to my classmate. His name is marwan Moallem. We go to his birthday party, which is at McDonald's playground type of thing. Right, right. And marwan's opening is gifts and, you know, there's like GI joes and transformers and then finally, fucking royal violence from my mom. And it was like, I remember being like, oh, hey. Yeah. Cool. Purple cologne for a 6 year old boy. It just kind of crazy. I don't know. I would get it if it smelled good or something, but like the thing is, is that babies already smell good. Like naturally nice smelling creatures. Yeah, it's like an actual evolutionary adaptation that babies smell good, so we wanna keep them around and protect them. And my mom's like, fuck that. I want this baby to smell like, you know. Yeah, like DJ Khaled on the prow. Like this baby is.

"What is the tokenization? What is the utility? So I would say what is most missing from art at the moment is the actual language of art because people haven't really been doing substantial language inside of art, so even in the NFT space in the fine art realm of it, most people are really just looking for, so what kind of utility does this have? Because most people don't read the art itself. And that's been a little frustrating for me. That's why I built the NFT art car thing with doctor marwan because you essentially you have it all. You have the substance storytelling art of Bitcoin and the whole crypto space. You have a physical object that is valuable. You have these new things like the cars and the races and the all of these different things that you can stack value on top of each other, and one of the cool things that I thought of as well is that we could do incentivization in a way that to this whole bundle eventually, some DeFi coins could be attached. And if you sell the whole bundle away and you sell it before, let's say 5 years, then you also have to let go of the coins. That you don't even get possession of those coins unless if you become a HODLer of those assets. So this is what it's really about for me. It's like because always when you're clashing with people and their ideologies and their internal map or whatever it is, you just end up pissing off everyone. So I'm trying to find honestly as much common ground with people as they are to see that the world is so much larger than we're currently experiencing it. And here's another really cool thing about the metaverse. I mean, with regards to this sort of race and gender and all this kind of stuff. And I see some of validity to it. It's like there's points that have been made that are actually great, but what's even better is to have some sort of a solution, which in this particular case is that you have people in the metaverse that have boom boxes for heads. They have rockets behind them and they have green shoot legs or bodies in their aliens or whatever they are. So the actual constraints of what we can't really change here in the world. I'm a straight white guy, so I might as well be a demon to the majority of the art world just because of how I look instead of what my actual values are and what I'm trying to do in this way. So I find myself in a conundrum with it as well, but now in the metaverse, all of a sudden you can have a, let's say an old white MIT professor or someone and you can have a poor kid from India that just has access to this world for some reason..

"And especially now during expo because everyone's here, so the hotels are crazy prices and all kinds of things. But at the same time, you know, for me, if I'm in Finland, there's many things that I love about my country, but it's really all about the middle, so they kind of elevate the bottom, but they kind of have a tendency of pulling the top down as well, which is what I loved about America and our collaborations and the world crypto cons and all this kind of thing is that still within the DNA of American sort of essence is that whole thing of celebrating greatness, celebrating high achievement that this kind of thing, an entrepreneurship, and I kind of really fit into that bracket much more than I fit into that in my home country. But I also find it that it's here. It's in a similar way. This is a similar kind of thing, but it's even more I would say gentle. And maybe the gentleness is that if you do stray off the road, the penalties here or something that you don't want to deal with. They'll kick you out of the country. It's like the penalties are you screw up. They're kicking you out of the country, and you can never come back. Imagine if we had that totally just stops crying for the most part. We just want to have to leave the criminals in here. We're just like in the U.S.. Hey, come on across the borders illegally and have a crack pipe. And Biden build back better crack pipes, man. That's a great campaign strategy. It's amazing. So dude, behind you, you've got two works of art and by the way, those of you listening, this is also a video version of this because we're going to be showing off some of this art and some of the project he's working on now so you can go to our YouTube or Odyssey channels to see that for this episode. You've got looks like behind you, you've got a piece that is Dubai in. As well as the blood on the podcast floor. But what's this piece over your right shoulder? Oh, this one is called refresh. This was my first impression of after coming here for the first time kind of figuring out what this place was all about. So it's got the sort of Mars behind it because they've got a legit emirati space program. They're going to the moon and Mars. There's all the blockchain innovation, so that it's actually the first code of the first block of Bitcoin is inside of the faces and the lady in her face has the emerging space program logo. They're crazy about their horses here. So the idea is that if it's possible a little later through doctor marwan, we might discuss maybe getting to tokenize the royal horses. It's sort of very liquid and warm. It's the Dubai skyline here. And the only thing that goes higher than the Burj Khalifa is the rocket going to Mars. I love that..

"I am Ben Lindbergh of the ringer joined by Meg rally of Zayn. Hello next. Hello. And another thing about fit. I did mention this last time when I went on my little mini rant. We have another thing. I do, I've been stewing on this all weekend. Okay. Hit me. When we talked about awards last time, I went on a little mini diatribe by Ben Lindbergh standards about people who suggest that fit is some sort of abstract meat on a spreadsheet baseball lab kind of hypothetical stat, whereas ERA is actual results. That's what actually happened as we discussed PHIP is what actually happened to and it actually focuses on what the picture himself did. It's an individual award. But in our new Discord group for Patreon supporters, some patrons were discussing that discussion. And one of them made a point, which we didn't mention, but I think is a good one. I'm sure other people have brought this up at some point, but Thomas our Patreon supporter noted that ERA also tries to isolate the pitcher's performance from the fielders, right? It's called earned run average, because it accounts for errors and thus it tries to give pictures a pass for mistakes made behind them. And subtract that from their record. And so if you're going to say that ERA is results and fip is not, maybe that makes that an even more tenuous case when you consider that ERA is not just did he allow runs or not, it did he allow runs that were his responsibility. He's kind of trying to do what PHIP does in that sense, but not well. It just doesn't do it very well because errors are sort of nonsense. And sometimes Fielder's mistakes are not counted as errors, and we know all the problems with theirs. But that kind of suggests to me that, okay, maybe they are more philosophically aligned. So if you're okay with ERA removing unearned runs and deciding what is an unerring bullet that's sort of what fit is doing. It's just doing it better. Right, right. I went on a journey with you there, Ben. I was like, are we going to come away from this and Ben's going to say, and that's why ERA is great. Right, I think that I think that you've hit upon something. Like there is an acknowledgment even within the most traditional stats that, you know, a pitcher shouldn't be held accountable for the worst version of fielding and what fip and other estimators like it try to say is what if we, what if we didn't need an error though? What if we were even more precise than that? So yeah. Yeah. All right. Well, not that fit is flawless again. Discuss the issues there. And why you shouldn't necessarily rely on that one set or anyone's that. But that seemed like a worthwhile point that Thomas made. And I find that often when people suggest that someone is over reliant on stats, they themselves are relying on some sort of it's just often. So I figured I'd mention that. So a little bit of news roundup before we get to today's topic. So we don't have any huge transactions to discuss, but maybe there are some that are rumored or in the works, I guess, say a Suzuki has been posted now officially by his team in Japan the Hiroshima carp. So now he's got a about a week, I guess, before a possible lockout, a little more than that, ten days, and if there is a lockout in a transaction freeze, then his 30 day posting window will just be suspended. And so he has to decide do I want to sign quickly and teams have to decide that they want to sign him quickly? Or will they wait and see what happens with the CPA? Assuming that there is a lock out in a transaction freeze in which case, whatever compressed transaction period, we have after there's an agreement he would have to decide where to go. So that's something to watch and monitor. I guess there could be developments quickly with him. But not necessarily, maybe it'll be a holding pattern. Yeah, I think there was some confusion about how exactly his posting process works given the possibility of the lockout, but he does not have to suffer in a bridge to posting. He just will have a weirdly disjointed one assuming that he doesn't sign before the first and of course assuming that the league and the players are not able to reach a new CBA by then and thus go into a lockout. So I can imagine he will wait. I just really don't, I don't know. Maybe we will see a flurry of activity. I'm going to say no we won't, and then teams will be like, hey, Meg. How's that Thanksgiving? Be shame something. But I expect that we will see some more transaction activity before the morning dawns on the second, but I don't imagine it will be a lot. It seems like the combination of the holiday with the quickness with which they would have to strike deals seems like at all. It'll tend toward being more bund. One deal that may be done or may get done soon is the marwan's extension with sandy Alcantara, who I guess often extensions tend to get done right around the end of spring training and before opening day that's when teams and players often knock these things out, but we saw the Jose breo extension with Toronto. And now the marwan's reportedly are closing in on a 5 year deal that would be for more than 55 million. So that is encouraging, I guess, and that the Marlins are spending some money in Alcantara is quite good. And the Marlins are in that category of teams that are pretty interesting to me in some ways it's even more of a shame that we might get a walk out here than it would be in a normal off season because there are a lot of teams that are kind of in an interesting spot that I don't know which way they'll go and will they invest heavily and will they rebuild? They're just so many teams that are kind of on the cusp of something. And I think that Marlins are one of them. We talked about the tigers and the Mariners on an episode last week and how it seems like.

"You're listening to shortwave. From NPR. Hey short waivers, Maria godoy here, and today we've got an update on a new drug for Alzheimer's disease. It was supposed to be a huge seller, but so far, doctors and patients are pretty much ignoring it, and peers brain Maven John Hamilton is here to help us understand why, welcome John. Hey, Maria. Okay, John, remind me, what is this drug called? The generic name is aducanumab. But it's marketed under the brand name and this drug is a big deal because it's the first one on the market that can actually affect the underlying disease process associated with Alzheimer's. It does that by removing amyloid from the brain now amyloid is of course that sticky plaque that tends to build up in the brains of people with Alzheimer's. So if this is the only drug out there to me, it sounds like sales should be going gangbusters. And yet they're not. At least not so far. The Food and Drug Administration approved this drug in June. But sales figures show that it's reaching very few patients. We're talking about hundreds. That's out of more than a million people in the U.S. who are potential candidates for this drug. Wow, why are so few people taking this drug? What happened? A lot of things, but the short answer is that adhem has a major image problem. I spoke about that with doctor marwan Sabah at the barrow neurological institute in Phoenix. He is a big fan of add your helm and he's also worked as an adviser to the company that makes it Biogen. The pendulum of public opinion has swayed strongly against this drug and it's unfortunate. But a lot of other doctors think add your help deserves all the negative publicity it has received. In their view, it's too expensive to risky.

"Within you know a modest amount of time. It's conceivable that those could be done. They're not. They're not far away from what current mathematics might allow though require a bunch of cleverness and hopefully some interesting new ideas that will be useful places. But you start in nineteen eighty with this idea before. I think you realized of you know the idea of programs is that there might be. Some kind of thermodynamic like randomness and complexity comes from a clever filter that You kinda like. I dunno spaghetti or something. You filter the randomness and outcomes complexity. Which is an interesting tuition. How do we know that's not. Actually what's happening so just because you were then able to develop look you don't need this like incredible randomness. You could just have very simple predictable. Initial conditions and predictable rules and that from that emerged complexity. Still there might be some systems where it's Filtering randomness on the inputs. Well the point is when you have quotes randomness than the input that means there's all kinds of information in the input and in a sense what you get out will be. Maybe just something close to what you put in like. People are very in dynamical systems theory so the bigger mathematics developed from the early nineteen hundreds and and really got big in the nineteen eighties. An example of what people studied there are lots in it. it's popular version is chaos theory an example. What people study allots is the shift map which is basically taking to x. marwan to the fractional part of two x which is basically just taking digits and binary and shifting them to the left. So every step you get to see if you say. How big is this number. I got out Well the most important digit in that number is whatever ended up at the at the left hand end but now if you start off from an arbitrary random number which is quotes randomly chosen so all digits random then when you run that sort of chaos theory shift map all you get out as just whatever you put in..

"Funny, funny, though that this is happening, I enjoy I enjoy the trash talking and hopefully it motivates the White Sox to push this to 5 games because I think that would be a really, really electric game 5 on the road. And then, hey, maybe the Astros respond and say, yeah, we're just going to kick your ass at minute maid park and that's going to be that's going to be the fun part of it of it all. Yeah, I really, I really have nothing else to say about the Astros because they pissed me off and obviously I think they're going to cake walk into the ALCS and do I think the cheating is still happening? Probably not. Do I think maybe it could be? Sure. Everyone is saying like the core of that Astros team is gone from 2017. And I'm like, what are you talking about? Marwyn Gonzalez. Everyone's like, yeah, Alex Cora's gone. No, marwan Gonzales is there. He's right. Yeah. He went back there. So they're like, yeah, Alex core has gone, Carlos Beltran has gone, like all these guys are gone and Ryan McCann is gone. Having gaddis has gone, I'm just like, dude, they have Jose Altuve. They have Carlos Correia, marwin is back. They have Julie guriel. They have Alex Bregman. That's the core of their team. The core of their team, if you're just talking three players, is Altuve Correa and Bregman. And they've been there the entire time. So I don't know why anybody would think that, oh, okay, yeah. A few players left like the supposed ringleaders left in Alex Cora and Carlos Beltran. You think there's no influence left behind? Okay, great, then that's the worst logic that you could possibly put forth. I don't necessarily think they're continuing to do this, but I also would not be surprised if white socked players had a hunch that something was going on if they were relaying the fact that the Astros, the White Sox players were tipping pitches or whatever it may be for you to be surprised that that might be happening again is the joke's on you at that point..

Secondary objective was to make america less free. Yeah right and i all that day. And i was like. Yeah they they they definitely succeeded. Man osama bin laden is dead but al-qaeda's qaeda's still lives and the taliban is back and we are not there and we are way less free than we were twenty years ago and i don't think people feel any safer. They feel any safer. September ninth two thousand one al-qaeda assassinates ahmad shaw massoud commander of the northern alliance in the afghan civil war that happened from ninety six thousand one once we invade afghanistan in october of two thousand one. I'm listening some sort of event that happened in between nine eleven after we after we invaded afghanistan we basically quashed the taliban within a matter of months and there is no more civil war and then we just kind of sit around for twenty. I didn't do anything i wouldn't say. We sat around for anyone that you're doing anything but like we do. We finished our projected pretty quick. Forty five hundred troops lost on america's side in afghanistan over twenty years pretty good stats when we kill tens and tens of thousands of mujahedeen and taliban and anyone who is against the afghan status quo which is tribal over there. There's so many different sects pretty much. Anybody that goes against the main narrative and yeah. That's we're dealing with. Now she shoot. That's all we're dealing with now when he goes against the main narrative you know So that's that's a basic timeline cowley.

"That's actually how. I stumbled across him on youtube so Recommend that and then you can also just listen to it as well which to be honest. I'm doing that just to work through some of the backlog let's say and then maybe going forward all gravitate more towards the watching. The listening is my tentative game. Plan moving onto the last item in this internet intercourse. Quinlan o. i think. I may have spoken of her. Before she is a streamer On twitch been watching her on and off for years now again. I don't so much like I think when i first got into pub g I watched a fair amount of twitch or watch people playing that. And i think that's how i came across her I think she played it back in the day but mostly she plays Overwatch which is not a game that interest me terribly. So i don't really watch that but the Race recently i saw she was getting into. Es amar which is not similar to my sort of feelings of twitch Not something that. I gravitate towards necessarily You know something that all will check out from time to time Doesn't necessarily you know. Give the tingles However with some recent use of Allegedly som psycho been Watching her stream Particularly the aso marwan's there's a also i will admit ones in which she is in hot. Tub playing the legend of zelda breath of the wild Which is something. That i would sort of not just the hot tub and not just the breadth of the wild are things that i would necessarily a scope out but you combine those tune. It's goddamn peanut butter and jam with magic mushrooms on one sort of very strange sandwich So i wanted to give definitely her a recommendation. Something i'd like a boater is that and i mean this is a compliment And she even sort of says it herself that It's not that it sometimes feels like she doesn't know what she's doing but sometimes she'll say like i don't know what i'm doing It just sort of that. That moment of vulnerability is is very endearing And this is not something. I know of a semi r- people but Apparently you know you'll you'll get a hairbrush or he'll get a little thing that you can play with and tap on and you'll do that you know for whatever half hour twenty minutes something like that whereas she is like a she'll get a brush five minutes underbrush he'll get a new little device or something and play without for five minutes and she'll sort of run through them very quickly and i recall her saying you know what i feel like most an haysom are people with spend twenty minutes on this but but i'm presuming through this things like every five minutes so she sort of i guess still figuring it out although i like i like going through them quickly Like that it's it's sort of a you know. Maybe i could see the other side of the coin where you want to get used to something in sort of really zone in and zone in on it and zone out That sort of idea anyways The other thing. I like of her is Sometimes she seems like she's just sort of a normal girl. Donor stuff online like this Poten- every once in a while she'll say something that is like so left field and just insane that makes me think that maybe she's a lot crazier than she lets on online which i enjoy that sort of Not knowing what she's gonna do from one moment to the next that sort of thing yes just a beautiful as well doesn't wait But the checkout quilon If you like chilin. Which i believe is something she says from time to time. Chilin with quinlan. Yes oh wait a second. we're not done. I thought the should be the last segment i see. There's a final button here.

"Jewish state. That's part of the background picture. I'm now heads egypt. And he is a very smart guy. He has no illusion that he can destroy israel. He doesn't really wanna destroy israel but he is intent on restoring egypt's honor and as far as he's concerned israel holding onto the sinai peninsula which had been egypt's player to nineteen sixty seven is a huge sane on egypt's honor and that has to end out of business gone but he loosely coordinates with jordan with syria and they agree that they're going to attack on your keep war which is a day in which israelis were typically very much now on the radio and not listening to the news and doing whatever they were doing but it was a very typically very peaceful day in israel and again just like the six day war is a very complicated war that we didn't really go into the details of all the battles. The same thing is going to be true now in the war. We're gonna talk a little bit about how it started and then really how it ends and where the middle east is at the end of the war why the bowels take place i in the north and the battles move to the south and all of that. They're books that have been written about this war. It's much through detailed for us to Go into israeli. Intelligence is picking up a tremendous amount of indications in all sorts of ways that the arabs mostly the egyptians and assyrians are moving massive amounts of troops and weaponry. Israel even has a spy whose name is marwan. Asraf who was nassar's son-in-law marathon daughter is apparently spying for israel a fascinating book about it called the angel but even ashraf is also alerting his contact to the israeli intelligence apparatus that egypt is going to attack he gives dates and so on and so forth but israelis just refused to believe it and there are lots of people even in the intelligence community and among the military brass say. That's just ridiculous. They are not going to attack us. Look at what we did six years ago. That's the concept you but egypt and syria are mobilizing more and more and more troops and war breaks out on yom kippur. Many people who've written about that they tell of at their incident guide and all of a sudden they hear the air raid sirens going off and they can't imagine what is that. Is that a mistake. It is an accident is a technical malfunction but then people begin to turn on radios and they hear all the units been called back to their bases and so forth and israel quickly mobilizes two hundred thousand reservists but those two hundred thousand reservists are up against three hundred thousand syrian troops. Eight hundred fifty thousand egyptian troops. They are outnumbered six to one. And because of this conception this feeling that they are impregnable. they're invincible. Nothing can happen to them. People talking about going to war in nineteen sixty seven getting to their base and lovie equipment didn't work. The rifles were falling apart. Things were arrested. Nobody had trained. The israeli army had gotten a little bit too confident and it is a disastrous war. In the first days of the war. It is not at all clear that israel is going to survive in. The first hour is of diane tells the brass. Don't worry about it. It's nothing are casualties will not reach. Even the hundreds. They'll remain inva- tens but hundreds were certainly not gonna lose in the end. Israel lost three thousand soldiers in the more or less three weeks of the yom kippur war and barely desperately clawed. Its way back to the borders that it had ended the nineteen sixty seven war in at a certain point. That very confident. Most of the who said don't worry we're not if you're gonna lose one. Hundred men was going to go to the radio. Apparently and talk about the fall of the third temple and it was only when golda mayor who was the prime minister. Got wind of this. She said no. No general of mine is going on the radio. Talk about the fall of the third temple and she forbade him from going on the radio but they was convinced that it was over. Many israeli generals were convinced that it was over. The egyptians made it way into the sinai. Desert the syrians were poised. They had crossed the golan heights they were poised to slice through the galilee at the southern tip of the golan heights which would have severed israel in two which would have been the beginning of the end but as we said the army actually performed very admirably even though it lost a huge number of planes at the beginning of a huge number of tanks the army performed very admirably in the latter parts of the war and was able to encircle egyptian third army in the sinai desert making it clear that they could have slaughtered. Them chose not to a got back to the suez canal. Push the syrians back in the golan heights and as we said got back to the same borders that israel had left nineteen sixty seven with the question. Is that israel win or lose. The war did sadat win or lose the war. Now israelis felt devastated after the war. There are harrowing harrowing videos of keep would seem where a coffin is brought back to a kibbutz on a jeep and it's followed by another coffin another jeep and another coffin on another jeep and another and another and another cloth in all of the same keyboard seem. Thousands of kids in a relatively small country. Meant that there were people seeing that had had inconceivable. Numbers of soldiers killed from the very same kibbutz. The sense of confidence gives way to a sense of absolute self doubting self loathing and obviously fury at the government and at the military brass so on a certain level. Israel wins the war militarily because it's successful in pushing the egyptians and the syrians back where they started but it loses the war spiritually. If one can say that israelis are devastated by the war. I argue actually in my book about israel's history that israel never recovered from it that to this very day israelis are still shattered in a very very deep way by how blind they had been to their very real vulnerabilities and i think that that actual sense of ongoing vulnerability continues to haunt israel to this very day. How about sadat did he win or lose. Well he lost the war as far as the army is concerned right. Army pushed far into the into the sinai desert but it gets repelled by israel very effectively and at the end of the day did not sign a ceasefire. His third army would have been.

"Hearing over and over and over again and we had this really great automation example. That came from a member of that team. That said hey we asked the question. What's your email address. And then we asked the question. What's your website ninety. Nine percent of the time they're email address. Is there work email. And we can probably take a guess as to what their website is based on their email. So what if we parse that out and said oh your email is embryos hubs about dot com is your website about dot com. Yes or no so just taking out that one question. I don't know the exact metrics. But i think anybody that works in marketing. Automation knows the power of being able to remove one question on a form. Run additional question that you're asking a prospect before handing them off and those types of ideas actually came directly from the front line sales team. So i think yes it's trickier and the buy and the politics might be a little bit more involved if you're working at a larger company but the truth is you have to get investment and you have to get buy in from the people who are actually talking to your prospects or customers are actually doing the work. I because otherwise. It's not going to work a you talked about how you create these processes manually. I you did them for a while realized how painful they were end or repetitive and then decided to automate them. It's kind of the same process. It's just done at scale and it's making sure that you're involving every single member of the team and we have somebody on our board that repeats a quote that i love that she says. Make sure you're repeating things with cartoon clarity. It's to make sure that every single member of the team understands why you're doing something and what the larger goal is so when you say. Hey we are looking. As a marketing automation team working alongside our sales team to automate repetitive tasks. That you feel like are unnecessary. We want to hear your voices so we can put into action. The things that you're asking for it's a lot easier to get buy in and then it's a lot easier to say okay. Six months down the line. Hey we wanted to run a pilot where re-test what's app is a new channel. You already have that. Trust build with that team. They know that you have their best interest in mind. Whether or not it feels fairly disruptive because at some point marketing automation is going to be extremely experimental. You're going to need teams to be able to run those experiments and be bought in and be willing to kind of fail fast with you. I think it kind of starts both at setting shared goals at the top and hearing the concerns from people who are actually speaking with customers or prospects firsthand. You know whether you're a small company in your setting up the marketing automation rules yourself with your of a large company and you have dedicated headcount to help you manage some of the more complex processes. There's no getting around that marketing. Automation is something that can be incredibly complex. It's can incredibly sophisticated and powerful and we're gonna spend the rest of this week talking about some of the channels that you should be considering how to manage relationships when it comes to marketing automation and also had to think about internationalization.

"Maui along the cat king. Okay and i just love that sort of characterization of this yes when i love such a fascinating person. Marwan fifty slang cat. You know he was that memphis cat. And he's the king of rock and roll exactly and that's what it's about. What's your favorite destination within china. My favorite destination in china. We've touched about. this is one. It was a city that i've been to more than any other. I love inferno in shanghai temple in beijing but one prison is the coolest bar there and every good bar. Every great barr. I should say becomes the personality of the manager. Her name is dong dong and she is an explosive character. That can't really be characterized issue. Twenty she forty. She's whereas these layers of clothing. She's got these big dreadlocks and she tackles when she laughs and one prison bar is almost a manifestation who she is. I've never been. I've heard about the river. Yes 'cause i mean you really have to cities. There's a little bit like a buddha passion. Yeah fantastic right is on my list. I don't know when. I'm going to go if you left china. What would you miss the most. And what would you miss the least okay. Shanghai such an international city. And it's a place where i've met dutch people. In belgium people in italian people and japanese people are able to engage with so many different cultures and people. Here you can find some of that in new york and in london but in shanghai. It just manifests itself so much into the legacy in the history of what shanghai is in terms of least interesting. It's that sort of policy of not engaging with things that you find in china the idea that when there's a conflict everyone stands back and watches when there's a problem you just kind of move away from things and you don't engage with things that's The things like that's so interesting. Is that just a function of this system of government. Function of history is a function of culture. Like what is that. I would say that's what it is I know which part did the hardest is there anything that still surprises you about life in china recently. I just got an offer to go. Dj in a city in jiangsu province. That i'd never heard of zhenjiang zhanjiang. I don't even know. But like i thought i was at the end of going to new cities in china and out of nowhere. I got hit up from someone who had seen me at a party in nanjing and they said we want you to come to our city said sure so maybe sometimes get complacent. I forget about things like that. But i love that. That's great. Where's your favorite place to eat or drink or hang out well on ding shoe by xinhua lu. There's a cafe on the second floor there. And i consider that my office because you have food there this good internet. It's good people watching spot. So i generally have meetings at that spot. My friends know what as my office. So i love hanging out there and do my thing there. What's it called is the city shop. Which is like the international market. There this once. That shop has a cafe on the second floor with no one knows about or ghosts too and you can order sandwiches there. They have food ready to eat there. They don't promote it and it's close to my apartment and you look onto the supermarket or yes. How funny wants the best all west purchase. You've made in china. I mean so much. Music records that i bought while here and i. I love my jacket as well. What is it wants. One supplier that supplies all of the bio on jackets. I always try to keep this mysterious. But i'm gonna engage with is so they have like army surplus stores where you can pick up A hat and jacket. And i've got a whole collection of things there. Don't worry i think you'll save. I think most people wouldn't go out of their way to do that. What is your favorite. We chat sticker. Okay now let's talk about this oscar k. Send it to me. I got it okay. Well let's talk about this. So i invented something. Called poetry. seems poetry meam. So i'll watch a movie. That's in the public domain and i'll take snapshots and i'll cut it up into clips that i can then use to make my own ouija tickers and now. I have a huge collection of them very cool. What is your go-to song to sing at k tv chuck berry and johnny be good is such a great song which has a great spirit to it. There's a story people know it from back to the future. Got a very very easy course where people to sing along to. And it's great. That's true very nice. And finally what other china-related media all sources of information do you rely on. I'm really interested in the history of shanghai nightlife. There's the andrew field book shing netscape's super useful very cool. Well thank you so much. Dj and the last thing. That i would ask anyone sitting in. That chair is for the next season of mosaic of china. Who do you recommend that i interview. I really love the mongolian community. And i find that in china especially there's a lot of confusion about who they are not chinese. They have their own culture and stuff. And there's a very great designer named ruby. Who does some very interesting work. And i think it's important for that. Expect community recognize as part of the was china. So i would recommend a great then. I can really talk about earlier for the whole episode. She's a very interesting person. Otherwise but if you wanted to you can't of course she has thank you so much. Thank you very much oscar. So i double checked with. Dj and the city in jiangsu province where he was invited to dj was jin jiang which it turns out is most famous for its vinegar. It's right next to nanjing. And it was actually the capital of jiangsu province from nineteen twenty eight to nine hundred and forty nine while nanjing served as the capital of the whole republic of china also on the subject of cities when dj b. o. Mentioned that shanghai is seen as less of an artistic city in china and more other commercial city. That was an echo from a similar comment made by the fashion journalist. Casey hall in last week's episode but there's also another hidden connection to last week's episode because dj b. o. Updated me that in a development from what he said in a recording in the past few months the chinese. dj's he comes across are now starting to take more pride in music from china especially chinese hip hop so this mirrors. The growing trend that casey had been seeing with chinese people take more pride in chinese fashion brands. To and there was one final connection. I wanted to mention. Dj b. o. Is the second floridian in season. Two can you remember who the other person from florida once. Five four three two one. It was sean harmon. The ceo of the belgian beer company do bell marquette from episode. Night as always you can check out all the accompanying graphics to today's episode on social media just type in mosaic of china on instagram or facebook. And the right will appear otherwise. Pat me on chat.

Daily Sales Tips
"In yesterday's tip from pornography Hindu Burnell called me out for not having featured any tips related to demos on the podcast. He was right and he did something about it by sharing his own tip which was fantastic. I thought I'd continue on the theme and turn this into a bit of a demo weekend and share one of my personal philosophies around on demos and a strategy that used to work really well for me now to be fair. I haven't really done demos the last few years as I've been working in the professional services space but before that when working with Alachua and then in the event technology space as much as possible I did my own Demos Mos- I always wanted to show my prospects that the solution was easy and intuitive enough for the sales guy to us because I always worried that bringing in some technical expert to run the demo just implied that it was difficult or complicated. It also put me in a position to control everything everything. I didn't have to stress so much about having a perfect mind meld with my sales engineer. Who May or may not take people down a path that I thought would be the most relevant what I really WanNa talk about. Though is a process. I developed called the demos discovery. This was driven by the idea that so often Vinh. Your potential new client just wants to see a demo. They WanNa get a sense of the solution. See what it's actually about and make a determination for themselves around around whether or not it might help them solve a particular problem or business issue instead of doing that demo for them. We of course want to do a bunch of discovery. We want to try to understand their needs. Their pain points how much that gap in their business might be costing them all of that so instead of doing what the customer Marwan's we try to force them into a discovery process. That for them is a time commitment that they often can't even tell is going to be worth it or not because we haven't showed them anything it creates friction and really goes against what the customer wants. So I put the two together I.. I built a demo. That was all about give and take and allowed me to run a really good discovery process while also demonstrating the solution and now. I totally get that. This might not even be possible for some solutions but where I did it. Most effectively was in that event technology. Space he's one of the primary things that my future clients wanted to see was a walk through a of the event registration process both the front end and the back end. Fortunately for me the software was easy to use and super customizable so I built a demo event whereas we walked through that registration example example I had embedded all the things I wanted to know some elements. I would have pre filled based on the research in prep had done for the call so at its most most basic have their name email address. Company and title prevailed this. Let me show off some of the marketing capabilities and demonstrate how we could set things up to show things that we already knew about their ten dis. Once they clicked or registration link in an email from there I could talk to. Ah them about the events they ran. How many what type. How complex were they. How many people attended all those kinds of things while they're telling me this. I'm actually chilly capturing the details inside the demo then I could start asking about different functionality. They might need. Would they need to manage hotel. Registrations distractions where they want a mobile APP all those types of details. This is what drove the rest of the demo. I wouldn't show them anything that wasn't relevant if they don't need to worry about hotel registrations why on Earth would I show that to them if they told me. A particular capability was really important. I could go into more depth and also learned from them why that specific capability was so important was done and after using the option to register multiple. Attendees Simultaneously Ashley. If there were multiple people on the call I would show them the confirmation email capabilities here. I was able to send them that email confirmation with with all the details that I had just captured throughout the process. It was the ultimate leave behind. Follow up and it just happened in real time and of course that confirmation email came from my email address and included my contact details. Then as we transitioned into the back end I was able to show them their own data. How it was used. And what else we could do with it. Based on additional discussion around how they were hoping to make use of all this information mation to drive sales deliver better experiences or whatever else was important now. I wanted to give the specifics of this example to make it more real. Oh and show that. This isn't just some theory. Sure had about the perfect product. Her run this demo discovery process inside of. But I've been able to do versions Asians of this with other solutions. The point is this. Try to find ways that you can do your demo earlier turn it into a conversation instead of having a one way discovery conversation where you're trying to get everything you need and then doing a demo where you're providing a one way pitch. Try to combine the two and have a conversation.
