Ep. 503 - Trent365! - Pandoras Interactive Voice Ads
"Tonight, so five hundred and three of three sixty five Pandora's interactive voice ads. That shoe did music and podcast livery platform Pandora, which has about seventy million active monthly uses is about to trial interactive voice ED's that partnering with a company called industry Matic. And essentially what it's going to mean is that you will be listening to a voice head on your audio content. Whether it's a podcast all music, and you'll be able to basically speak your command to either get more information or even to skip the ad if you don't wanna listen to the end anymore, and the interesting thing about this is going to be that will finally give voice ED's. Audio adds a chance to really prove their -ffective nece because you know, with an online ad it's easy to show the clicks impressions with an audio ad. It's much harder. The problem is, of course, a lot of people when they're listening to order, they can't really interact with that. Anyway, because they driving the car or you know, they're running the park whatever the doing. It's not sort of thing where I can just sorta stop and press a button on their phone. Too fast for the ad or to respond to the ad. So this new voice command system through this company called industry Matic is gonna will allow them finally to measure the effectiveness of ads. So we'll be to see how plays out like a lot of these companies. They say they've got a bunch of out official intelligence and machine learning and language learning behind it. So the machine will get bitter and smarter as they go along. And I think either way if they get this, right? I think it will finally prove the validity of voice ads at scowl because Pandora's huge. So let's see how that plays out as, you know, I'm pretty bullish on voice. Generally. I think it's the way forward. So someone can finally cracked the code on voice ED's. Like, these guys are trying to do going to be very interesting already. That's thanks for tuning. I will be back again tomorrow. So yeah.
Tinkerclass (Week 1 Day 4): Improve & Retest
"Pencils. Window fresh. Osh. Clause is a vault. Welcome back to tinker class our hands on crash course in science. Fun One. Oh, one for this science seekers and inventor does of tomorrow. It's day four of week one. So if you're just joining us for the first time, hit pause and go back and listen to the first three episodes of this week don't worry. We'll be here. When you finish this week, we're using inspiration from our wow in the world episode, Haga Matic, three thousand, and the future of soft robotics on day one we had you listened to the episode while jotting down any thoughts ideas and questioned that came to mind on. We had Jamaica list of problems or inconveniences found around your home. We also had you make a list of animals with unique. That could be mimicked or copied to help solve those problems and yesterday we created our problem-solving models in began testing them today it's time to improve on our models using what we learned from yesterday's testing trials, and then test one more time using data or the information you collected from yesterday's test it's time to revisit your design plan and look for ways to improve it. It might help if you dry your improvement ideas on a piece of paper. Once you feel confident about your improvement ideas, you'll want to use them to modify or rebuild your bio mimicry model. Then retest and record or write your observations on bottle two point up. When you're finished share your findings with us you can leave us a message on our wow hotline at one. Eight eight eight seven wow wow. Be Sure to tell us about the problem you identified the way you used bio mimicry to solve it, and of course, the results of your model we just may play your message back on tomorrow's final day of class week one once again, our phone number is one, eight, eight, seven.

Ethereum Usability with Sean Li
Turn Your Drawings into Playable Games with Doodlematic
"This APP lets you take a picture you've drawn on paper and turn it into a playable mobile. Hi I'm Michael. Principle because family dot org and fairly tech blog dot com. Today we're going to do a review of an APP called doodle matic. I met the guy who developed this APP at. Cas He talked me through how you can take any kind of art. As long as it uses the colors the APP recognizes to create a real playable mobile game. This APP is called doodle matic. He sent us one and we were able to play with it. My son had a blast drawing out games especially platformer games that you had to jump from platform to platform an achieve goals. He had a blast playing that on the DOODLE MATIC APP. He would literally just draw the game on paper. Take a photo of it. The APP process is it and then you play. You can then share it on the APP and other people can jump in and play games if you've allowed it to be public. There are two types of games you can create on doodle matic. You can make the platformer like I mentioned already or you can make an angry birds style launch game where you shoot something over to knock over other things. It's all based on a series of different colors that create different types of objects in the game. Anything black is like your platforms or your ground. Red Is obstacles things that get in your way and into the game when you touch them blue as your goals and green. That's your character here Avatar. So when you're platformer jump from platform to platform grab the blue goals while avoiding all of the red obstacles using the colors to develop what the Games behavior is allows kids to basically make the game whatever they want it to be the best part is there's a lot of trial and error. I don't know how many times my son drew something took a photo of it and the game just didn't work properly. Not because the apples messed up but because his drawing didn't allow the APP to do what it needed to do to make the game playable so back to the drawing board literally doodle. Matic comes in a box with little books to guide you through the game creation process. It literally takes you step by step tutorial showing you what to draw and how to use that to create the behavior you want in game you could go on and find other people's games they've created and play them and like I mentioned. Share your games for other people to enjoy. I would say this APP is probably usable for any kid over three years old once they can draw a little bit and grab a pen or pencil. They can create a game in this APP. There are some advanced controls. You can set up making things move back and forth constantly or making the obstacles do things you can learn how to do that as you gain more experience in doodle matic but really all you have to do to get started is draw with the proper colors games. Do not a really helpful for our kids because they teach them that trial and error process. That's necessary in developing any kind of technology if you're learning to code or if you've done any website building or graphic design you know that there's a lot of times you start to create something that just cannot work and you have to go back to the drawing board doodle. Matic makes that very obvious but it's also still fun. It doesn't take away any of the excitement because you know that's what I did wrong. You go in you fix it and then. Suddenly you're game is working. That sense of reward and excitement is real and kids love it. I have four kids. All of them have loved doodle. Matic my boys loved it. My Girls Love twelve year old. Loved it in my five year old? Loved it so I recommend checking it out at the website below and getting your family into doodle matic and make yourself some games. You'll love it.

Sandeep Nailwal: Matic A Scalable Layer-2 Dapp Platform for Ethereum
"This is epicenter episode. Three sixty nine with guests sundeep nail wall wrong. i think you're listening to epicenter. The podcast or univer crypto founders builders and thought leaders on this show we dive deep. Learn how things work at a technical level and we fly high to understand visionary concepts and long term trends. If you like epicenter the best way to support us is to leave her. If you an apple podcasts. And if you're on a mac or i west of ice the easiest way to do that is to go to epicenter dot rocks slash apple. And if you're new to the show be sure to subscribe on itunes soundcloud youtube or you get your podcast today. Our guest is sundeep nail wall. He's the ceo of matic is companies recently launched a matic network which is a scalable debt platform built on a theory. Medic is one of the many theorems scaling solutions explode on this. Show if you're looking for more content on scaling you can check out. Some of the recent episodes did on this topic. There's episode three fifty two with jack o'halloran of scale labs episode three thirty six with jin line wang and carl flourish of optimism and episode three forty with daniel wang of looping matic provides secure an instant transactions using a side chain based on an adapted implementation of plasma and decentralized proof of stake network based on tender moment so like many of these skilling approaches. I mentioned earlier. Matic tackles a specific use case in this case it's allowing developers to deploy decentralized apps on a side chain and since it's using plasma users can come in and out of the theorem as they pleased. Since the tokens that exists on matic or interoperable with the main chain one of the things that the magic team takes very seriously is user and developer experience on the user side their goal is to allow for the types of experiences. People are used to with two but leveraging blockchain's and on the developer side. This means offering a really high quality developer experience and making it super easy and accessible for anyone to build a data on the platform. So mayor and i did this interview together and interim mayor fashion. He'd offered some new inspiring analogies for how you think about the growing system of lehrer one and lurch systems. I won't say anymore here. I'll just let you listen to the interview and appreciate this insight for yourself. I'm not much of adapt developer myself. But i've built a lot of websites using wordpress and one of the things that's been immensely. Frustrating has always been devops like deployment maintenance backups and database management while the folks that c. panel have built the wordpress toolkit for c. panel. And it makes it very easy for you to manage your wordpress infrastructure. I'll tell you a little bit more about that later on but if you want to learn more now you can epicenter dot rocks slash c. Panel and our friends over algren are hosting after our series where blockchain developers can meet their team and members of the community for informal conversations. About and also tell you a little bit more about that later on but if you like to learn more go to dot com slash epicenter. We're here with sandeep millwall. He's the ceo and co founder of matic. Matic is a company that has been the niether space for some time and is building scaling solutions for a theory. Of course we've talked about scaling on this show at nauseam. It seems of course like we've had several scaling projects on the show that all have different approaches and matic is a very unique approach within this brother scaling solution ecosystem and so we're very pleased to have on with us today to talk about matic and scaling theorem. Thanks for joining us. And thanks for having me here and thank you so much and been hitting about epicenter for long as it's it's finally very nice to be here or glad to have you on. We've we've met before that. Khan and i know that like back then i was really interested in magic and what the kind of unique scaling solution that you're working on. It seems a little bit early. i think. Have you on then but now that the network is live in. There's some traction on the platform there's no better time to talk about on the show. So tell us a little bit about your background and how you became involved in crypto. Yes so basically. I got to know about bitcoin lake. Leon i think two thousand thirteen even like i discussed with my friend that you know we should think of mining bitcoin or whatever but you know at that point in time i think it it had already surpassed the point where you actually mine bitcoin on your laptop so you know we kind of did the plan but i never really got into technology at that point in time to learn. The fifteen is the time where i started My startup in the e commerce space. It was more of a like services. E commerce services started late for white collar sosas b2b services basically and i was trying to build something like You know a lot of non indian companies actually go to india to hire thailand kind of hired the vendors and all that there's a lot of like different different kinds of voters out there. And you know at times you don't know like is wonderful you know. That's i kind of thought that there is a big gap in the market to get the right. Like high-quality renders Does not like freelancers but proper mundus. So i kind of started school fever. Which was my previous like. You might be startup so there we did well for some time like one and a half years by was not killing. That much like that that you know for which i came into the Overall entrepreneurial space and that was a time. When i realize that you know why i i kind of intellectuals and realized that because of a lot of like people dependencies into it it would be very hard to even if i am able to break into the next levels at very likely be always already slow grind towards the largest a billion dollar scale or whatever so then i started you know then i then. I realized that you know the next thing i want to do like. I don't want to continue on this next thing. I wanted to do it on the in the high experience. Oh baby i defeated. Diligence was really hard at wjm. Started studying about it and all that and then from there. I kind of like there was too much mathematics and were into it and i was like not like getting the very very very interested in you know that much interested so that you know i love it and going to spend my life doing it then you don't like was an expert experts space. I you know. Bitcoin was just getting that kind of hypermarket. So at that point time. I taught at this school. Let let me study about bitcoin and blockchain and all that and i started with the mustang bitcoin from andrea and know and then you know like fourth or fifth chapter eight to the into the book. I i had that. How moment like with which you fall into this into the rabbit hole and you know that was the time like when i said this is big and i want to do something in this so initially i because i was like you know. I'm a blockchain program itself. So i got into the blockchain programming at that point and you know initially did some you know kind of consulting assignments or development assignments for few planes and all that and then you know i became more and more active in the blockchain community in indiana bitcoin. Community in india initially. That's where like me. And my other co founder. Judy met Where we used to answer the technical is in the group You know more for this. We knew that we knew each other that we out of those like a lot of people over there. They're only few people which are technical enough. And i would and did he will do so. We kind of had that kind of friendship that i don't like end of two thousand seventeen. Jd had started exploding on plasma and he became a part of the plasma research group where you know retaliate and carlin. All these people were there and they're in a. He kind of conceptualize this idea that we want to a plasma which actually supports a vm. Because you know right now on the like that one time plasma was only supposed to be Kind of to for payments. And you know the concept is that you know if we have a vm. On the on the plasma it can actually skin the smart contract transactions also and. that's where the idea of matic Was born and he kind of dropped a and you know that time only we were. He was also developing some of the dagger you were just mentioning legged was simple idiom for listening today rent so we got into talking and all that and i realize that this is really begin. Disconnect and that was that was a time where the took us moment had also hit so you know it was like realized that this like this is a big problem in the space. And let's do something to solve this. And then we joined hands and slowly actually. It was not a token project but then we realized that for the security of the network it will be required. Then then you know we like matic became what magic yesterday. Like ugly two thousand eighteen. We kind of set up company everything. So we'll talk more about the plasma and all the technical aspects of the of matic a little bit later on. I i'd like to talk a little bit about about the crypto scenes specifically in bangalore so the matic office at least before covid wasn't in bangalore and no bangalore is known worldwide but also like in southeast asia for its first startup ecosystem. How significant is the crypto seen within that broader startup because system that consists of you know like consumer startups and like a lot of general consumer companies and most of the crypto startup activity. Come from bangalore. Or are there other centers in india where you see activity in dumps of dole initially lake. What boomed in india was to trading side of things so initially the epi said that. If you if you call it like you know it was mumbai started and then of course delhi was also like big in the scene bang law. Of course they would be like a lot of trading groups and other but it was not that big initially but then you know slowly. The developers You know got excited into the space. So this this talking end of two thousand seventeen very few from india were actually in the block in space and a it was mostly around. Crypto and crypto raiding. Caddo stuff so bangor was not that big. At that point damon way would be like momentarily would be much bigger in that sense and then of course like The lake leg not once but it. It took a lot of times oregon developers to become and even now i would not say the even though bangladesh consider silicon valley of india and pretty big in the startup space but the kind of entrepreneurial elite of india is still not very much into crypto. Space that much because of the you know of course regulatory kind of gray area or kind of uncertainty. That is there eventually most. Don't understand blockchain dort that will also like whoever out there. They're kind still You know on the surface. So i'm ben. I'm saying entrepreneurial lead. I'm talking like some of these top engineering colleges like i. I am on that like the because they have a lot of like funding available in the traditional space also and also even now like ninety nine point nine percent of those startups would be going into only few start of. I've started. Seizing have started coming out from these elite kind of colleges of india but like most of the other entrepreneurs are you know mostly from the fintechs intact kind of space who you know kind of got to know about crypto and you know all of tech and then you know they don't want to do something in this. We started at that point. I was almost like no protocol team at all in the in the in the space so when we started to seventeen like we realize that this is a big problem even though there were a lot of lancer developers from india but they were no like people who were in the program. That's why our officers were also in mumbai. Once week i know these are funded and then realized realized that you know in order to hire the island. We might have to like we even that we have to. We might have to hire from outside of india because they might not be but we were very luckily surprised when we started in doing a lot of people that a lot of indian lopez the good developers who got interested. And you don't understand. They were working ford legacy lenses for a lot of like us and germany and your biz countries and we were able to hire easily over there so now i think it's very vibrant swiss in terms of like you can find a decent number of portable levels india and with us also like we have been laid relentlessly doing so many towns like last year and this is a crazy number. That last year did like eighty towns all over india And you know these are apart from the global economy we do and most of the community doesn't even know about it that you know what we are doing For for lionel spread of tedium in india. This year we would be all of these virtual now decided we'd be crossing more than one hundred hundred. The estimate right now and these are apart from the global hackers that we do with good point he online and that and these acapella happened in like all the technology schools of india so slowly now. The developer community is waking up. And that's what we've been trying to do. They go to the gospel level. If on the if in on the technology school level the developers are interface blockchain that this is also a good career opportunity and all that so they will be more excited about it and now like yeah so i mean we kind of keep getting a lot of interest from the developers who are like as like college students fortieth wherever you know to us for winter and yup like lecture. The bangalore's blockchain scene is now slowly slowly spreading especially the tech blockchain's if that was the that was your question curto spaces all over like you know bloom by delete everywhere. Yeah i've been building wordpress websites for over ten years and the most frustrating thing has always been devops. i'm talking about deployment maintenance backups and database management. I've lost so many hours of sleep doing wordpress infrastructure management. If you've been building websites for as long as i have. You're definitely familiar with c. panel. They've been providing web hosting management software for twenty five years. Well they have a new product. It's called the wordpress toolkit for c. Panel and i've been given an opportunity to try it out. It's really cool. It makes managing your wordpress websites. Really easy you can manage multiple wordpress sites from what dashboard and you can manage users and databases to and because all your websites are managed from a single interface. You'll be more efficient. This is really useful. If you're running multiple environments like staging and production the wordpress toolkit can also apply security settings and policies to all your sides at once so you can harden and protect your company's website. There's a free light version and a deluxe paid version that has added features like website. Cloning and smart updates. that's also great. If you're running multiple environments anyway. If you're doing anything with wordpress today i would really encourage you to check this out because it will make your life so much easier to learn more about the wordpress toolkit for c. panel and be informed when it comes out go to epicenter dot rocks slash c. panel that's c. p. a. n. e. l. We'd like to thank c. Panel for their support podcast. It's interesting you talk about. The engineering schools and the types of funding that alumni would receive upon near leaving those engineering schools and starting their own businesses. And i think like india is a country that has gone through such a huge demographic shift in the last like ten fifteen years and in many ways. It's gonna see now. Very rapidly catching up to europe. And and america in terms of you know very mature infrastructure and sort of like online services. That of course like an entrepreneur is gonna go build. The next delivery for india is going to build the next you know the next consumer startup because there's such a huge market and were crypto is kind of this fringe thing and so i wonder also to what extent this this regulatory stance on crypto in india has affected your business. I mean just as a as a anecdote here like we haven't had team members in india and at one point we pay them in crypto and that became harder and harder because they couldn't they couldn't sell that crypto for fiat. So i wonder how that's affected your business directly or indirectly. Yes so we of lake anticipated this. You know pretty pretty because you know. I'm like fairly active in the business space and kind of had the information that this is going to come sooner or later so we kind of like indian entity which actually hosts are indian employees is immune from the toll. Space legged does not get anything in crypto. So we have a you know you know. I'm kind of a company structure Which has like a like a to ensure company. And you're kind of singaporean company. And you know any funds. That in indian firm actually acts as a vendor to be To the to the farms which are suffering foundation and it only gets the money in the not so for us it has not affected that much in that sense But yeah let the larger like studying the biggest casualties that we are growing the ecosystem in india like still a lot of the projects or the league startup request of the the the the startup that come to us. They're still like not of that quality which makes me feel like. I'm not saying all of them like you know there are. There are lake fuel select project which have gone on to do really great You know have gone do list on the exchanges. Have lost their. Define tokens and things like that. But i'm saying that still. The percentages low like person would be haji. Ten twenty percent would be really cool projects so And you know backed by beams whom you can really like you know big bet on or at least fully majority next there are some of the teams at least on that so i think that ability uncertainty affects that part the most because you know due to the leg even like i'll give you a very small. I was getting getting married like my i. I'd hard time explaining to my in laws. That what exactly i do. They like the moment later to like you know immediately. There was a doubt that you know. Is there something fishy here right. So i had to kind of convince them and you know this is that i'm more focused on the technology. Not talker enzi side of things and and all that. So that's the extent even even my mom like you know who doesn't understand like every time You know a few months. He will come to relate if she sees something on the news to shield them to me. And it'll be like what are you doing fine right and like we've all had those conversations with her mother and i might add also now my indian laws but my my soon to be indian in laws also conversation with so. That's the that's the story we don't in and definitely when you have that kind of banding so the the elite who can easily get like you know who can easily conceptualize an idea and build something in the traditional space. They would find it you know. They won't find anything exciting to you. Know commend. why do do all of this if you can do much better into the There is no space. so that that's one casualty. And the biggest casualty of that and indian government also. I don't really blame them that way. Because you know the kind of background like if you want to understand in perennial government is especially on. The economic reforms is is fairly progressive And then you know they have been pushing for digitalization digitization and whatnot and you know like the digital payments have exploited india. Like i think we would be like maybe one of the biggest in on the scale on dubs of the group of digital payments. And all that. But you're you have to understand the background india's coming from that You know in the past like fifty years even like not fifty s like if you go back ten fifteen years You know you would. You would hear that. Whatever indian gdp right you know you see at least fifty percent or like thirty. Forty percent of that will be unaccounted for the recall the black market like you're which was done in cash and all that and the current government and the government before that for the last ten fifteen years especially government they have strived hard to bring the information technology and all that stuff like you know all your filings to be online and things like that so there have been trying to push that on your your social security number tied with your that subsoil that you cannot kind of the view and the moment you bring like tiptoe into the fall like you know india's coming from that dr peter fifty years of socialist kind of country to becoming a capitalist country now and then suddenly like like it's hardly been any of them. We are still struggling to get. The optimum levels suddenly introduced caputo and boom. Everything goes out of the window. Like whatever you did whatever you build in terms of your regulatory framework or bringing people to be in the frame of legal stuff out of the window so definitely. There won't be scared and they will go very slow this and what they've been doing. That is fairly smart. So they are actually didn't they never been like. Bitcoin is not banned in india. Bitcoin bay into currencies band. That you can't consider like. I can't walk and reason invoice to you in bitcon that you can do but again have bitcoin as a digital at me and they never banned it. All they did was they played very smartly so they have a federal bank is actually affiliated. Like if you want to open a bank you have to get related with the federal bank of india and Which is the and rb. I what what they said is that they should a circular to all the banks later technique which means one hundred percent of the banks in india that you should not support the the moment you stop supporting exchanges the immediately. You can't convert like you. You basically stop the onramp offramp right and then you know the problems that you were just mentioning. Your team was facing. That's exactly the same problem that the onramp offramp is now available. But still you could do. You could do. Like peer to peer transactions and i think indian exchanges although it took a lot of time and the government actually did that smartly. They wanted to play that. Have that one. After years of to understand more about it and then india being a democratic country and three people you know kind of applied against that secular or you know kind of find litigation in the court and courts kind of subverted rule because you know the the the banks could not logically justify that why they and the exchanges right. And i have to come and say that i could talk blockchain. Everything is burned and it's illegal then you can't do it or the constantly go and say that. Hey you know you shouldn ordeal into this. Because that's against the personal body of an individual so god quashed and now. That's why you see the heightened kind of activity because there is no longer applicable now and the now the banks and everybody else is supporting the complications. And in all this while the indian exchanges light was edicts. We'd be as they sell committed by creating smart peer to peer like because india has a digital system of payments call ups universal payment interface. Something like that. So they kind of came up with this year to be Euro-transfer so instead of depositing money into an exchange mccown light. Now that you would do with coin instead of that you deposit into some intermediary accounts rich exchan- gets to know that okay you deposited they give you the trade and when you are exiting you also get the money from you know multiple accounts or somebody was telling me the title like one hundred thousand rupees and. They got the money from thirty different bank accounts. So how do you kind of now. Banned the out. So you know like different divisions people try to you know did really well in the last one obvious. Yeah that's that's such a fascinating story. You know what's what's going on what's going on in india. We want the matic like yeah in this in ecosystem. What is matt again. What does it mean problem. You're looking to solve so You know as i said that It'll be like we got like You know the god born Been capital kitties moment. Hit the video space night. And that's when we we. We started working on the scale ability when the idea is really simple that whatever like and we are like big tedium community members right so whatever you can do on team. It's such a beautiful thing like you have during complete mark contracts where you can write complex financial business logic and you know the. The gold gets executed aspen. The you know the decoded rules of the smart contract at it's such a great thing and you know which can actually change the course of human like we back howard systems in our organizations contract How we organize with each other as human beings so the idea was to give it a skill wherein you know more more applications can be built on on on such a platform and that was the goal that the idea about medic. And you know as i was like going into more technical details. What we do is that. We support a mvm on the lear to him. What you'll machine and you know where you can normally do your payments but you can do smart contracts and you know the technology that you use to use to kind of do it on your and you can take the transactions on a off like mega essentially an often late. You know execution. Got from video right. So you are instead of executing things instead of using smart contracts on idiom you are executing them on side chain which is mvm anybody and that technology you can have this using which you can have this very ability in duty of like everything is you know is very feeble on. Tedium is what you know his last month. So plasma basically a framework. Where if you are doing the transactions on the site in your can verify that and do a lot of and of course they plasma has low fallacies so you know right now like for example if you wanted to do simple use a simple logic like you know payments indexed plans further all that those will be fully plasma enabled on the on the side. But if you are but if you wanna do some complex custom logic then you have to write like the stump predicates for like predicates. There's nothing that think of it as a fraud. Proof that you are doing something on the side chain and you should be able to verify it on the megyn so it's easy to do for simple payments and your taxes and all that but if you're doing the complex lighting as complex plus mark contract then you're right. The custom predicates like what let's say for example other teams. They announced in public that they're integrating and all that so like you have to write custom gates but otherwise like how is differentiated from others. Is that you know instead of offering a single operator plasma which kind of put all the like you have good processing laboratory. Plasma was designed to have to have even a signal operators there but he can't really like methadone around with your fund you can draw them to instead of having a single operator plasma which had its fallacies we kind of breathed a multi operator plasma on top of a f. d. a. Jean wear these. Hundreds of these of editors can run the plasma. You know plasma machines like addicted again executive and you know all of these validates like be ordinarily do a consensus amongst them and they post checkpoint to tedium. So the what differentiates is that this. You know multi operator. Plasma lear is backed by a layer right. So if you don't want to use you don't want to get into the complicated predicate writing and all that what you do is you simply because the us system that we have built with one. Hundred plus doesn't that is fairly robust. Most of the games and other kind of use cases all that distantly ended up relying on the they don't have the full blown no functionality into compare that to something like other which will have a full blown plasma functionality. So now like what once. I've explained it to summarize on the like what marriage is. It's a to basically to means like an often execution platform and on that execution platform via we offer. You might double vs to secure your stuff on them. So one ways you can choose plasma all you can choose and future and what what differentiates us is that in future. We are going to offer more security scenarios on the magic network for you for a developer to do so. If you are developing a game you don't need that much level of tedium level of security like decently security guarantees. I would say you want to have full blown. Tedium regrettably and all that although you all get a large part of it already because of that robust us leeann. But even you can simply cleveland bureau security if you want absolute driveability and everything on on idiom you can use allows mar or maybe. The future approaches like optimistic. Roll-ups get ups and things like that so think of when you venting think your medic like right now. It has a hybrid abuse with plasma but think of as like a multi layer to approach in a very aggregate. Also like right now. It offers you abuse i or plasma but in future it will offer you more and as a developer. You choose what that's what is currently contributing to the urine. You're mentioning about the direction of the network. How these like you know. Applications like bali market and these are now choosing medic. because it's i it's proximity highly scalable and then as a developer. You had the freedom to choose the you know the kind of go to deliver for your application. So that's that's really fascinating. Our friends over at algorithms are starting an office our series so every week or two will bring together team partners and community together for a live discussion. Intend to provide you with all the answers and resources you need towards building useful meaningful blockchain applications by joining office hours. You'll learn how to get started with command. Line tools and use the sdk and recipe is to help you build applications for use cases like crowdfunding. Asset tokens asian supply chain management and gaming applications. Each office our will start with the theme for example smart contracts or writing contracts python followed by an open innate and chat so if you're building on a blockchain protocol that has unfeasible high or unpredictable transaction fees and doesn't provide you the speed you need or if you work at a large enterprise or financial institution and are interested in learning how to build applications that integrate with your current technology stack or whether you have no blockchain experience at all and just looking to take the first step into learning something. New algorithm could be the right solution for you to learn more visit algorithm dot com slash epicenter for developer resources and information about their next office hours. We liked thank algorithm for those aboard of the podcast when you look at the ecosystem broadly. Dv i tend to think. Offer his tedium. Is this this the city. There's like lots of activity in the city. But it's kind of expensive to deploy anything in the city. Just like it's probably expensive to have an apartment in manhattan and a lot of suburbs are being built to the city where the hope is some of the applications could be on the suburbs instead to be cheaper to deploy and execute your application on the suburban sort of matic. One of these. I think is one of the suburbs ending general. There have been two kinds of approaches. One is something something for example. What solana might be might be doing. Which is completely independent blockchain having a bridge to with him so that people could come from his helium into selena in bart baking some application there but the security of these systems is independent of each other so when you actually as a team dacre asset to salona you're completely trusting security model of salona and on the other side is the optimistic roll up and zeki will up space where it's another summer team. But they're trying to give the guarantees to the user that they move their assets from the city on police suburb in some senses. That asset still being secured by idiom the city and they can always if something goes wrong on in the needle up they can always come back to idiom and Any tedium insecure that asset and ensure that they don't get in the in the it all up. They're still relying on the city police as opposed to the salon suburb. Has its own private security. Yeah exactly exactly so. It's like building and then are you relying on the city police. Are you building a police force of your own and the salona is building. Police force offered own whereas the optimistic zeki all up spaces. They're trying to build it in a way that they can rely on the police of the of the city. I mean i think this is a very way of putting it but even like going that really think of it. Medium has country like. Let's go on a largest collecting of him as a country and then it has to be center which is like you know city center which can be left new york right which is the idiom mentioned and it is now. Many people don't realize that tedium already has like sixteen yard site like some by some private parties. Some like like us with matic some like considered these. You know side jeans all of these as different different states. Okay so you have you know. Gore has tedium mention. you know maybe washington dc's idiom mentioned. Which kind of like the center of the universe and then from there. You have these different different states and you know some of them can be more leg died. The federal lewis structure of washington dc. Some of them might want to remain independent. And all that and they have their own like pros and cons. They're like the state level security and policing and all that can be like slightly. Different on that while solana would be lakers. Completely separate which malik all this bridge and all like if you see all of these extra lana near and all that what they realized over the past like last two two years back like people. Us and all that they used to call them since as like tedium killers now they realize that you know you can't kill them. It's it's a phenomenon itself and what they're doing is that they realized that instead of badmouthing tedium like leather tried to be this like more of a. You know like their You know stategy to kind of captured. The option that tried to be closer to the base because all the developer ninety nine percent of the team. So what these guys near salon. An all these guys are doing is create a bridge with the idiom and say that. Hey you know you can. You can have things here you can be on team but then transferred over. This is like a trojan horse strategy from many of these different layer when a business fine big business strategy from their side and as a community. It's very open. You can do whatever you want to if you can have a different country which you can build and like in this analogy which which would be good and you never be good for the larger good of the overall like the planet. Why not like so. So that's that's the difference. And what but in the lair like in the tedium can also like there are different. Different kinds of lear does like considering them as different different states. And some of those states would be like more stronger. Have stronger policing and you know kind of what not like betas different kinds of benefits and what some of the other states would be like. You know maybe some laggards some some space but at the end they all are tied up to the medium so like just amplification of your login billion. Explain to leg in a non technical mayor told me about this analogy last week and once again it is one of the things mayor comes up with the blows my mind so i love that we were able to unpack it here on on the podcast and to i'm excited it's like if you think of it in the country analogy you think of those countries if you come back to kind of imperialistic times right where you have like a country that is producing some sort of resource for like the main empire or or you can think of it. Also in terms of like having free trade agreements with other countries right. There's all kinds of ways you can bring onto this analogy. Maybe maybe one curiosity i have is my impression is that you want to have your own independence security your own. Us wrestler but you also want to enable gaps to bottles security from the tedium. And you've been building to search for both but my impression is that most of the deaths that are actually successful in matic are just using the native matic lear. it's that independent. Security is proving in better product than being able to borrow. security from tedium is is that correct. Yes i know. That's not really the the exact reason behind it. The the reason is like fosters that even if you think about the individuals security lake festival the matic's us. Lear like proof of stieg and all the sticking and everything stay on all that everything happens on tedium only so all the validates of matic actually have to register on idiom on a smart contract with and then once they're registered then only they become a part of this like the side. G invalidated lear and if they're doing anything implanted. They are participating in the consensus. And then let's say they submit of like we call checkpoint roof this omitted onto tedium if the idiom smart contract does lot like recognize them it will reject that all these violators. The security of everything is on them now on the plasma Like what you're saying. Is there most of the applications ended up using the reason. Is that simple. It's easy to use because they don't want to get into because plasma the problems plasma is the von week withdrawal times so if you're exiting something from to matic a magic tooth. Helium like withdrawing back to them. Do you have to wait for seven days and there are people are doing like building exit. Like i know what you call. Toll bridges basically getting of toll bridges so you can pay some money and then you get a faster exit. The toll will faster an that so once we will build those they either interfaces where you can exit within like you know you get paid small fees and you can agreed with instantly then a lot of these people were might start using plasma also but right now it's all about ease of use and the that expedience and that's where lake right now and this is going to be the same thing for all the optimistic roll ups and what not even with optimistic you have thought proves you will have at least like twenty four hours to beat over drawl challenges because at the end. What you're doing is that you are. You have to kind of when if somebody's trying to do a fraudulent withdrawal should be able to challenge it but then there are these other category of you know one exit like for example as loves us validity proofs so with velvety proves the delay period is not that big. Like you know that it comes down to maybe then twenty thirty minutes so right now but the problem. Is that when you are building on something like this. You know you're building expedience. Goes for the dos. Like you have to do a lot of complicated stuff. So at the end of the day. The idea the london gold forever even everyone who's working on to like us or anybody else. The long term goal is dead at the end. There should be more like the people using are kind of the policing of washington dc on the federal structure. Betty tedium is the kind of the federal kind of capital. That is the most You know better. We shall be doing better. We're doing it because then you can have high value. You know activities happening in these other states because they know that at the end if something happens the federal mba going to protect us like. Let's get into deep into technology that you have federal agencies who can protect you that means you can get right back not so the end goal for all their users that only whoever calls them to if somebody is calling them later but at the end the ever completely separate security. Where there's validation everything happens aside. You know they're on swim. They have simply calling a bridge earlier. Which is which is not the not the writing for example. The example of that would be. Let's they you know. But although salonen near not branding it but technically in some form they're trying to be that Some for example x day for example like they have they have a bridge. but they're all that validation. Everything happens on us. I chin so they are. They are separate chain with a bridge. There are no different from likely to something salon me or anything like that. So but in our scenario like if like if you separate auditorium the network deserted so but then again that's that's not the ideal approach the ideal approach again would be as we are searching an optimistic roll obscure loves the art approach is more of an aggregate approach. If you think like that way is why you can have. You can choose your level of security that you know at the end. We believe that everything will tied down with. Because that's where the value exists. And you know you would want to have stronger. Bridges to that federal structure. So yeah and then you can choose among the spectrum that how closely you want to be governed with the You know the federal structure like do you want to be. I don't know the states in the us which are close to federal. You know this one but maybe it depends on politics if you are republican and republican Is there in the parties in the office. So then they become closer to federal sector. I don't know but yeah i mean. I've heard stories that some of the state won't do you know mundane this over entity. So we want we want to do is that we want to give the people the choice that if you want to live in texas leaving texas if you believe in something like mortally going by federal sector that should that should be your choice but the country is something like that. Yeah this is so fascinating. I love this loves conversation. i'd like to maybe just get a sense of. Where're you position matic. We talked about all these other layer two or bridge solutions like salona optimistic role option. You mentioned peo- a network. Where do you position matic in within this space. And why would someone choose to build on matic over and other solution. Is there a use case. That's particularly well suited for matic league right now. The guest kind of at wanted. The option we are getting is from the empty and giving the best thing is that because we supported so for who's building You know like electronic medium and they want to have like faster transactions and low cost legaspi which technically everyone's not that people like something like for example. Somebody who's doing the very large transaction. One hundred thousand dollars. They might. They probably don't need medic. But then if you have a system where like average transaction costs like if you're buying fte's which is which runs into lexical dollars. Also those use cases are the biggest one so giving an mp like microlending use cases defy some of them. Those are like using medic. The biggest benefit is you know. it's up production. Ready solution so you have vm. If you're you're already building for a team you can very easily integrate your same code base and everything on on my take. Those bridges like which comes built into the into the network simply us and as whatever to build that so develop. The ease of development is the beginning and we worked like last year where the extensively on that to ease development makes it very easy for the for to adopt that. They giving you know elite. I use cases a lot of crowd. Funded crowdfunding social network kind of use cases. All of these make much more sense. The high value defy use cases like you borrowing lending. And all that right like you know they. They might be better on tedium itself You know asphalt the gas use the something like liquidity mining doesn't strike back again. You know we start seeing three hundred dollars. Sp's as as that. That doesn't happen. Like i think the defy the larger kind of value us out better secure. So you mentioned early on that you were doing. A lot of these pakistan's Across india. So i'm curious if that's your go to market strategy doing a lot of pakistan's and spotting these teams that are building babs and then getting them to be on the matic network is that the centerpiece of business development. Approach a young. I mean that that's definitely a big part of the community between of it. The developer like generally in one hackathon is like you know you won't find the like one one developer in the hacker itself. You know finding something big in there and building business out of it you know digs them multiple hackathon you've seen this like some percent joining one particular hackathon and then he participated in the next three in some different colleges because you can apply for different colleges also and all the global hackathon we keep doing stuff we keep doing with the coin and all that so they get get to know more and more they get more comfortable and then was they realized that this is much more scalable easier to build the start kind of using it for their actual product eventually so hackathon definitely one big strategy and yeah i mean individuals each ultra ultralight we try to be aware of the markets as much as possible. How much like who all is building. What and all we have a very solid business development team you can call them all the better word relations team so we keep it keeps on like you know having a keen eye that you know which projects are building. What kind of technology specially like you know like we have been focused on empty other team focus on beef by projects are the team will focus on rent like miscellaneous uses and things like that and yup there be there this part the good and then we kind of held them initially lake from our sailing. Even if they're not building on dick be of keep helping them on various various friends and eventually when they realized that okay. This is much better platform. I still stay on. Tedium like most of them delivers want to stay closer to the community. And that's why it's very hard or it's going to be hard for any other kind of lear one to you. Know outcompete because you know like it's kind of a network effect tedium and all the applications on idiom and also everyone who gets introduced into the blockchain space. He like their cost. Blockchain is always a team because what is most easy to explore an experiment. And it's what which has the maximum documentation and you know organic lake de la backwards when as a developer. When you're developing something using bleak way that okay this this editors coming and you will see somebody whatever it and something about it. And that's something which is which is very organic you. There is no shortcut to that any of the blocked in the also trying to build a separate of completely separate structure. It's very hard for them. To kind of achieve those kind of medford so again coming back to the the strategy like anybody who's building on tedium we talked to those teams and you try to tell them. The benefits held them and eventually they see the value the value in that. The you know. Come across. So i wanna come back to a little bit of the technical aspects of matic and so we talked about the proof of stake system that you build alongside plasma and i was kinda surprised to to find out that leverages tenement consensus. Can you talk about some of the technical choices that you made here why you chose to build on on tenement and how it interacts with the other components in matic Basically if you see that technical architecture medic visit lear approach like so i like the base layer is the layer where the staking and all that happens and the checkpoint being happens then the second layer is basically this. Lear vivitrol sentiment. Because you know. I at that point in time even now i think it's the best choice to build a like best best. Sdk to build a you know like different like beauce gene. So and it's customizable and all that so we did some heavy customization into it and added like the third layer into it which is a edm. Which is the get or kind of the board a like we call it. The border actually a modified form of get only so. Why get because you know for. It's kind of the the best client that way so you know against the holidays that the three layer approach. You have a tedium. Then you have the sentiment and then on top of that you have get integrated into it. So as valid data so designed choices. I if you asked me that vivitrol to you know. Do the uso lear over there. Is that because you know with plasma biggest problem is the data availability should if you're running wanting mill operator plasma and the operator simply runs away doesn't share their data then you can't even exit on the maintain so what we did. Is that we you know. We tried to solve the problem by decentralizing like now you have different people who are running the chain or like hundred different people. Earning the chain. It's hard for them to collude them. You know kind of do this running awaiting together and then on top of it that you have the live so what we needed to be able to do with if it's layer to and then it still kind of produces blocks every six seven eight seconds ten seconds then because you are building separate buechler that will be subject to its own scale ability consent. It doesn't make much much sense. I what we had to do is we are two separate in order to achieve higher mondo scale ability that we could they have like seventy two hundred. Pbs and you know like second block times and all that so how to do that is that we basically kind of separated the validation and the execution so the second and third layer if you imagine is purely a validation if you see the blocks of the it's only about devaluation these validated constantly. Kind of validate all the blocks. That have been right but you know by the third layer and then you know every thirty minutes they kind of you know have a consensus between them and then send it to the tedium now coming to the third layer. If if let's save me wanted we had to kind of create a third layer and which only produces the blocks and all that then it becomes like depaz mechanism which has been highly appreciated right leg with us and all that so we didn't want to people's system we have few people are out of these hundred valid few but only had the capability to the blocks. So what we did is that we had the know one of our goals. And i should mentioned it like this one like morally that for the two one of our main design goals. We wanted to be decentralized and censorship resistant so although the stick and you know kind of the that are very good solutions but then they are subject to the centralization censorship attacks also because there are two operators returning the chain so that was alternative angled. But we still had to achieve this get. Maybe so what we need. Is that the third. Which is the validation layer which is separated from the execution lear. What happens is that this gene randomly select committee like all hundred. People are validated as well as block but then there is a random committee selection which happens every six minutes where this committee gets elected and those six people like those seven eight people outta sponsored by producing blocks for next minute then next community comes next committee was an all all of this also happens like digs into account the amount of take they have the more you have the more chances you have to be a part of. The you know the person who is going to develop who's going to put the checkpoint onto tedium and that's when you get your sticking words so no matter what you are doing on the on the side chain at the end you have to submit the proof everything on idiom and then you get only get your rewards so basically. The validation lear is only meant only is focused on doing the variations of all the blocks that are being produced. And then the execution layer is a subcommittee you can now think overdose subcommittee which gets out of these leaders and it randomly keeps on fluctuated keeps on the nfl randomly. Auditing these other relatives and nobody gets to north upfront. That you know who is going to be the leader and the next. I mean only the next few cycles you can understand northlake on a larger scale yukon censorship attack. Or something like that. So so yeah. That was the reason to kind of separated. The evaluator lear from execution. So that we can keep the system sent a particularly placed by then even even then if you want to achieve the scale ability you can't have hundred meters and running the chain second second block times right so because the block propagation takes time so but you do is that you select random comedy every few we call it spans and sprint every few spin spaniel create a new committee which kind of the blogs hope that makes sense like. There's a lot of detail in that. But yeah i hope it makes sense so just to recap the the valid or set is validating the ps and. Then there's a a random subset of these. Valid ears are executing the smart contract logic right. What actually creating the blocks of the so there are. Two types of blocks are being created when he the jinn blocks which is being created by the committee. And then you have. This layer blocks which is which only has the data related to the validation of the latest blocks that were created and every thirty minutes the centers among them to widely contested among them create a checkpoint of all the transactions that have happened like all the blocks that have been produced and put it on tedium and then only they get sticking towards so what are the security trade offs of this approach. What what trust options as one half to have in the system when operating in this in this configuration so the trust as like if you are using be os then you are definitely trusting the if you're using us only if you're using plasma then because of this like the main thing is a men. As i'm sure that you are you're taking here. Is that that because the number of vendors is like really high and You know how to them randomly. Some of the leaders are being selected. And if you think of it now like those that committee that gets elected for us or sprint whatever like every six minutes that committees actually a committee of plasma operators right so they are running the plasma. I know for that particular damn there and they get keep getting shuffled right so that trusted them ten. Is that these having a large set of decentralized kind of operators you will have the availability and as far as you have the data availability. You will be able to if something goes wrong. If you're using plasma you will be able to exit to tedium. That's the main thing. And having that jane has more decentralized than ten consensus consensus and older like that a lot of leg you know liveliness like those kind of network requirements east to on the way and the beacon chain is launching next week does eat to change the development plans for in in any way in your hall holders matic fit into the broader each week with system as it as it develops so multiple multiple facets of this. The first and foremost it is that the what is launching is more or is like the deal of youtube channel. And the real like time where you will be able to execute your transactions or renew. Smart contracts on a shard would be is like fairly away. You know two to three years minimum. You know where you will have a usable chain like this is like the first phase of better process is fairly away and one has to see like you know in tedium. You must have seen that with alex. Grownups record layer idiom to map also right. So he'd like you have to keep in mind that he'd eat. Idiom is now a very decent community and you know there is no one roadmap for that. There's a layer to specific roadmap that is enough to bungee shedding a specific roadmap. Now even we didn't that what i believe is like let's do simple calculations for example right now leg idiom one has let's thirteen transactions per second. And you have. You're going to have sixty four yards do so and each shard will be like will closely resemble. Let's eat eastwood born judo. Currently even if you have maybe the of these genes will go from thirteen to fifteen p. b. s. Maybe let's whatever and indosat. Communication is even further it. Maybe like five years of. I don't know so each chain is basically tedium like for the next four years like if even if it then it will be like a group of independent jeans. You know having the same leg acting leg bridge and if you think that way you will start seeing matic architecture also similar like you. Don't the one side that i told you that the one. I missed that you know. The validated lear. Separation of hidden layer actually enables you to have multiple execution lives so on the team you know literally we can have tens and tens of chains running on top of it and then it will start pulling more closer to two point zero kind of system bed. You have multiple shots. Multiple chains Which are any tedium is kind of the beacon over there right so they're talking to them so but are coming back to the two hundred architecture so communication is going to be like even further away. Slow acting forty years or whatever. So what's going to happen. Is that you have you left sixty four shards and let's assume that even inter shark communication is also there in three years and you can assume all of this as dps and you know the smart contracts can interact with each other across different charts. Let's do more of that. Even then the megabucks like full capacity would be sixty four into. Let's say twenty thirty plus again. How do you like two thousand. And if you see that way lakers sixty four times extension of tedium one point zero or even hundred extension of diamant. Bongino simply defy will be able to eat. Eat up all of that bandwidth like the dow the like the government supply of this. Like you know it's like you have x. amount of supply of the transactions per second. Let's think of it. As a commodity that transactions protect guests basically but block. Let's say and you already have an day. Demand right and that too is like. Unsustainable demand speculative demand. Because you know you have ten dollars twenty dollar transaction being people because they are speculating but if it goes to the public and you know. The real lake Traditional public starts coming into it. You already are looking at like thousand force demand than what it what. What is their country. Not even thousand even more than that. But i'm saying that even with two hundred the moment it comes in the ban which will will get and zoomed very fast. And then again you will be no situation that where do these like large transactions gaming and all that empties and you know again a lot of social. Where do they go because only the eat. Two point zero the entire bandwidth easily by five. We are not even like the starting of the developed. The real big guns have not even traditional world have not even jumped into the field yet so that the long-term pieces for us is that layer to for anything. Like even if you had chain like solana or whatever like you know the teen was there and eventually they will also get exhausted and the ideal vehicle to have like one. Settlement layer like two zero and the business activity has non opinionated execution environment soap talking to a huge number of people who want to build our our building applications on blockchain's you know one thing is clear that there is no one one size fits all solution. They talk every you know every and debris reclined. Every business has their own needs on requirements esau you know having thinking of this intimately point or point zero as one opinionated life-form and everything on that does not make sense. So that's why we strongly believe. Rt says that there be one strong settlement and then did will be one like lear to or kind of non opinionated layer to kind of environment. Which kind of connects back to this. Central sediment layer which is a tedium in our opinion. And you know the business activity can happen too so even when he comes in nothing changes on our side. What we are doing keep doing that. Keep adding more and more to approaches and you know like would suit multiple different businesses. That makes sense and i think this the way to look at this as a multi. Blockchain ecosystem is what makes the most sense to me. I mean i've always been kind of confronted with with this very idea. People people put out there. This there's going be one blockchain to rule them all and sure. That might be appealing. But i mean just look at the way. Software development has has evolved into this ecosystem of languages and stacks right so not not just a single development language but a series of tools that are combined together in a stack and you know these these languages and technologies of overlap between the stocks etc. And so you have you end up having these monoliths and some are of course much more present than than than others like in web development. You might say that's node for example but there is some point in the past new. Php my ski well was the predominant stack and in some circles. It might have been like asap. The you know the microsoft approach. And so i think that it makes total sense to assume that in a future where blockchain systems are driving a lot of economic activity and know beyond that we have different stacks that serve specific use cases and needs and perhaps even serve certain applications in geographies etc. And but it will end up being a very diverse set of tools and of course lots of lots will probably disappear eight. Lots of the approaches that we're using today might not exist in ten years but it'll be an ongoing evolution of systems that make ecosystem absolutely the makes sense as we're ending arriving here to the to the end of our conversation you did mention dagger a little bit and we're talking about this before the show that you know magic and the team have been contributing to quite a few different tools in the ecosystem and surprised if i know that while it can act was one of them. Talk about this this philosophy or this this kind of strategy of also building other tools than you know. There's the product you're you're you're working on. What is your contribution to save other other tools new system. So i mean i think that the biggest in terms of the tooling support like back in the day. We used to like as i told you that contributed to the community with the dagga and we even like like one economic so our team was actively involved in building the foster version of this like a. Ged himself was like here. Relieved that but so you know in terms of like we also contribute to the you know like we build something called sky channels instrument which we believe is the right approach for inter. abc also into blockchain communication protocol. So like a lot of this stuff into open source. But i think in the last like six to eight months You know we have been more on the kind of consuming in You know where we are providing this production ready platforms of getting a lot of like hell from the open source community in dubs of using. Let's say blocks for locks block scout which has been by buick network for example using that has block explorer. And you know we used get as the you know this one. So it's a combination of the technology from this went so but on the the idea is to you know keep contributing to the to to to all the tools that we are currently using so you like as a door that tenement contents. We contributed something and now like our team is very actively actively researching into this zero knowledge side of things and we expect more and contribution from our beams beaming to the rule up space also so yeah overall the strategies right now. Our focus is actually on the developer. Tooling side of things is to get or make everything that is available on tedium available on Magic also so you know. The articles like chain link launch their midnight on on on mandate leg and all the other like top oracle platforms are also launching their Leg you know network yesterday announced All the like the the bigger bigger name that you'll hear in the oracle space they're launching similarly something like nassif and all that so right now. We are more on the receiving end of having all the tooling that is available on imperium megan available on on medic But once everything's stabilizes then definitely like that contributing to whatever feedback we keep getting from the users contribution of that back into the system will be like the way to go from there. Go what do you think is the solution here. I see this as a pretty complex problem. Where if you want people to come to matic you need to also have the tooling you know you mentioned like no safe or any other applications that people are used to using on your maintain as the system grows and there are many cities right. They also need access to these kinds of essential services. It seems difficult to scale where you come back to goes to safe. You know they have to deploy also on matt can also on like you know some other some other side chain or another blockchain. What what's the solution here is interoperability. The only are like mature interoperability tools. The only way forward or rem stock. You know having a multiple deployments of the same the same core technology on all side chains problem actually is not the deployment across the the things like the the problem. The problem is that you know is is that they're not enough being customers as for example as safe they would be very happy to deploy and multiple chains as far as like people were willing to pay for it right but right now they have to do this probono similarly for in fewer. They have to do all of this stuff like pro bono to kind of fuel the earlier option. But eventually i think that You know if the vendors when the system grows big enough then they will be like you know more and more being customers for these surveys and then scaling is difficult right now. Problem is that for all this ruling. You have to do it. In public interest like as public could three public good eight. That's the challenge. I think that you know if there are enough being customers like anybody minds skilling their tooling do different like for example daddy issues the from our from like we have been like i. I think we spend like a couple of hundred dollars every month to just keep the system because there are a lot of applications which are currently using dagger and we keep it up just for the sake of these these applications but then you know nobody's paying us for that and The moment we bring in a payment plan on that and all that that's not our coral this thing but even if we bring it that bring that people will start using some of the free service late so i think the problem here is not thus scaling of these pulling because that's easy that has been done in the space very well is more of like the business models that are available know all the users that are available being us so while going through the matic architecture one of the main main concerns i had was that the design choices that matic made make sense from a two thousand eighteen perspective. I'm somewhat skeptical. That make sense from what two thousand twenty perspective. So here's here's what i. I'll qualify that statement more so when you look at like twenty thousand twenty one for any like l. twin blockchain network ultimately like you need consensus. You need like a way to execute smart contracts and of and certainly large keen mentions are coming along the way i and i think maybe two biggest ones are you know avalanche consensus which is actually better than intimate consensus on most damaging. So everyone's consisted most faster. It can support a lot more evaluators than ten in consensus. The second the second key shift. I see coming. Ecosystem is in the vm. You have the single threaded execution so like every transaction comes it needs to be processed state needs to be updated than the next transaction prostate updated execture whereas like salona execution is different than salona execution. You can have hundred transactions coming and if they impact different parts of the state they can all be processed incompatible on gpu so the main at one date salona executions mark contribution creators battle process processing on a gpu which is why salama is able to be like maybe even like even the future hundred more scalable than any other. Smart contracts There because they are able to exploit this battle ism of a gpu in the blockchain context. So do you think this is a concern that there are going to be better. Smart contact zeke yutian environments as well as consensus algorithms and the combination of these. Two things is going to and then you go to compete on a business level with these platforms that have just these better inventions and you'll be stuck with tandem than edm and in the long run this will end up have been is suboptimal choice to have already like that. Yes so I answered them. Or you know what bevelled for example to so for example this one like the tender mond and using edm like a system like one thing one inborn word i like keep keep using his the production lateness of these things right. So you know that comes. From the proven record of a particular technology so similar social so for example benjamin they they might like tenement might have had easily have like hundred plus chains built on top of it. And you know it's it's fairly stable avalanche. Even though like they. I think few one or two months back. They have launched their minute. That is also distinctive. I don't think it's a full blown full functional minute if we would. If would have waited for something like that. You know we would. We would again will become like those ghost research paper projects which talk a lot of you know you know that they talk a lot of futuristic things. But they don't have anything you know running on the production so that was the choice that we kind of actively have activity taken. We want to have a production ready network where you can have next level of skill ability on top of tedium. So if you're able to do live from thirteen cents per second we are able to seventy two hundred and second. That's already a fairly big live from there and to counter the like let's say the scale ability requirement if let's say that requirement is lauded enough as i already told you that. We separated the validation lear with the execution so we can actually multiple such sites genes into the into the stomach at a rapid pace. Now that is also one more one more important part over there that you know the like from our perspective. We see this platform like this network like we don't. We don't expect this to go from today. Where like if you combine all the data tedium ecosystem audio ecosystem. You will hardly have and the nba. You like ten thousand two hundred thousand a you if you include hundred thousand if you include. All the token transfers like these like bitcoin offers an all that like in the whole space. That's a very very small d a you. And that's i don't have exact fact sheet on that somebody would have done the analysis but roughly. That's what people say. And if you can tap it's hardly you know hardly with all adopt mind you right so right now we need to go from ten thousand to the next million or ten million users and i think that the current skill ability choices available on top of idiom would be able to easily go to that level which salona like as you said that you know like there are multiple like. It's a very interesting concept that you can have multiple paddle and all that. But then there are other people have shown concerns also in terms of centralization of such a system because of these state blowed if the state becomes bloated too big laker doing for two thousand dollars per second you'll state can be can get bloated very very fast. And then only a few people will be able to run it because you know if you want to run it fast. Then you need to lord the entire state onto the ram right and then it's very hard to kind of have a thirty two. Gb or fifty db them. Whatever like if you're if you're state starts growing too fast so there are multiple and you know via the to the design choices with which we do is that first of all. They're proven and plus. We have a plan on our side. We can multiple side chains. Plus we are now working on different approaches so we have our backup plans that when if let's this jane starts getting bloated and we start seeing thirty to thirty two hundred dollars per second then we can easily create more secondly in terms of scale ability like lot of people would be talking about the skill ability but like matic right now like you combine all the ones like mir's mine all of them that combine number of transactions that they have their own minute. We'll have ten times that on our you know layer to platform tweeted about also that you don't mind it optional. While these we have much at a simple like to project we are much an option that option that so you know like nbc. They seventy two hundred transactions per second is far far away from even with this all these huge number of applications. We hardly see like four five ten transactions per second because you know that seles and so i mean we have a good part to reach the current you current level of skill liberty that is available plus we have the backup design choices that you know richie it can take to to the to the next level so the provability you know proven ness of the system is also very important because we want to have a production grade ready system instead of more experimental system. Which many system. I'm not saying that you know. These systems will not evolve the scan. Actually they can be very sturdier system and then that's why you that our approaches. We are not stuck on one particular that okay. This approach as i told you that we want to offer multiple two approaches. Who knows in one year from now. We'll be offering an avalanche consensus on top of tedium as to. Nobody's stopping us to do you know from doing that and very interesting but but you know there are a lot of internal things are going on but maybe three months from now we can. We can maybe visit this particular thing. And you'll see what i was. I was editing too. So i hope that makes sense. Yeah and it would certainly be cool to see. Two different consensus mechanisms being supported on matic. Before we wrap up here word. Can people find you. And how can people learn how to build skill apps on matic The best place to find us on twitter and telegram matic network handles and my bustle handles my full name at deep and well and i'm like if you are developing anything on the blockchain space and you want to scale your applications you do reach out to us. We are very supportive for the good depth. We had them on multiple fronts lake skill ability. You know go to market your reread effort. You used to investment investors and what not so you know their entire enduring commission we do and we have a very you know if there are at least as the levels. We have a very interesting building program on bitcoin where we kind of sort of give grants two thousand dollars worth of grant every month. And if you're building something you can register your application there and if the community vote for you you get to get a good part of that grant and you can kind of bootstrap your application.

Simple Breathing Technique
"This is episode one thousand seven hundred and ninety welcome to the daily meditation podcast. I'm Mary medically and we continue with our series this week all about simplifying simplicity. So I welcome new and honor you for simplifying your life. It's one of the most important things you can do especially in what seems like an epidemic of distraction and overwhelm. So in today's episode, you are going to discover one of the fastest and easiest ways to instantly, calm your mind and body, and that's with a breathing techniques. Your breath is interconnected with your emotional state. And so when you come your breath, you oughta medically calm your state. So you can improve your mood simply by calming your mind and body with your breath. This is a simple breathing technique that you can do whether you're seated on your meditation cushion or chair or as you go about your busy day. These meditation techniques are portable so carry them with you and do them during the most stressful times of your day. So this technique. I do often when I'm feeling stressed. I often do it when I'm feeling impatient. Such as when I'm sitting in traffic, or maybe I'm waiting for someone and I'm feeling a little irritated. And so I'll do the breathing technique. And it helps to calm, my mind and body instantly. This breathing technique is a simple technique to remember if you just remember the number thirty. I've shared a similar technique where you have can't using your breath to the number five well in this breathing technique today. I encourage you to inhale through your nose to the count of three then Holter breath for the count of three. And then X hail. Through your nose to the count of three. Do this three times in inhaling an x-ray hailing to the count of three and inhale an hail through your nose. When you inhale through your mouth, you have a different reaction. This is more energizing his often a cleansing or energizing breath and in the breathing technique today, it's designed to calm your mind and body so inhale and exhale through your nose. This keeps your breath soft and gentle now when you do this breathing technique, you might find that you the little little breathless doing the technique to the count of three in that case. You can do the breathing technique to the count of one or two the count of two. But most people are likely able to do it to the count of three. But I mentioned this because sometimes if you're not used to doing breathing techniques even breeding to the count of three can be a little challenging, of course at any time. If you should feel dizzy lightheaded, simply resume your natural breath, one note about breeding techniques in general. Make sure that as you inhale your chest is still you might wanna place your hands on your optimum because as you inhale through your nose. You should feel your abdomen gently rise upward. This is a proper way to breathe and fully allow a diet for Matic breath, where you oxygen it your entire body when you breathe high up into your lungs where your Bill your chest. Rice upward. This doesn't allow you to tap into the lower part of your lungs were you have these tiny blood vessels that carry oxygen to yourselves. So make sure you're giving yourself a deep dia for Matic breath, carry the breath throughout your entire body, and you'll feel your abdomen rise upward when you do this. And then when you exhale through your nose, you'll feel your abdomen sink back downward. So this is a simplicity breathing technique. It will calm your mind and body instantly. And in the process give you a little more peace energy, and clarity so techniques. Like this help to simplify your life because you can use them as I mentioned anytime anywhere. Before I guide you through this technique. I wanna share that if you'd like to go a little more deeply into this series. You can always do that on the Superdome meditation app, I've recorded over seventeen hundred guided meditations there where you can meditate for up to half an hour. You can try this app. Full access to the app for two weeks free. When you subscribe, and you also receive a journal and a guide customized for the week's theme. Again, it is these sip and own meditation two weeks free, and you can try it out as you settle yourself down. Right. This moment begin to notice the kind of state urine. Many times when people sit down to meditate they tried to force themselves to be calm simply allow yourself to evolve. To a calmer state. The breeding technique will help you to transition. So you can do this much easier. Also, as you meditate when your mind wonders, and it likely will. You can return to this breathing technique to refocus your thoughts. So you can go back into a sense of deep inner stillness, just focus on your breath or a few rounds and sink back into that inner stillness. As you calm your mind and body again. Consciously pay attention to how you're breathing keeping your chest. Still and your Adam feel it rise upward with each and hail and seeing back downward with Egypt sale. Now, I'll guy to through this breathing technique for one round. And then you take it from there. Do it for at least three rounds. You can do it even more. In HALE one to three hole one two three exile one two three inhale. Hold. Hail. Inhale? Hold. Exhale? P continue this breathing technique and sink n to inner stillness. You are so worth slowing down for.
NFL Conference Championships Preview with Davis Mattek: The Chris Hrabe Show Ep. 72
"The chris rabies. Show on scoops. At danny mac dot com. It is the thursday january twenty first twenty twenty one edition of the program. Happy to talk a little football with you today. Of course the afc nfc championship game. This weekend we're going to do that. With davis matic in just a moment. Don't want to forget. Remind you to subscribe to the scoops. Danny mac. podcast where every. Listen to podcasts. I tune stitcher spotify head on over. Subscribe lever review. Take a screen shot and send it to me can tweet me at c. h. r. a. b. c. h. r. a. b. e. He can also send me an email. Chris at scoop with danny mac dot com so some football today some more football tomorrow as we get set for what should be a fantastic sunday the packers and bucks in green bay and the chiefs hosting the bills. The afc championship in kansas city are welcome in davis matic to the show from sports daily rotor dot com take cast can follow him on twitter at davis davis. What's going on man happy Almost championship which i think is maybe a little bitter sweet because as as the football gets better as we move along like we reach a certain point of of the bell curve. I guess when i start thinking about how close we are to having to wait until football starts again. Does that happen to you know because football is my is my full time job so at this point of this season you know i love football right and i'm sad when it's not on tv. I love to watch football. But like the that mental recuperation period from february from the end of the super bowl to like march fifteenth. When you have to really start grinding draft stuff honestly it it is. It is pretty great. I do need that mental break for sure. Yeah i'll tell you like the last seven years of hosted Saint louis cardinals pregame and postgame shows. And there's something about like the month or so after the world series until like offseason gets really cooking and of course everything's different right now for every sport but there's something about that little reset Which is nice and the. Nfl is a completely different beast where everything has become kind of a made for tv a made for social media a made for coverage event even outside the games. Yeah everything about the nfl. I mean we aren't going to have the combine this year but they're gonna find a way to market the pro days basically like it is. It is every part of the. Nfl is truly insane. I mean there's just there's no other way to say it is. It is insane to care about the the the athletic testing for these nfl players. But you know we do. And i certainly would not have any other way. Davis matic is with us as we get ready for It'll be a big weekend the nfc championship and the afc championship. In that order on sunday i guess. Let's start in green bay davis and just dumb first overall impressions. I guess of this game for most people. The quarterbacks obviously brady vs rogers but as the week is gone on. What's the most intriguing aspect of of this matchup human. I think the most interesting aspect is you know. Basically what happens win. The packers get pushed a little bit because we saw this with them last year as well They beat really bad teams. Like basically without sweating. They basically did the same thing this year. But what happens if the buccaneers are running a little bit hot and they end up getting up ten points right. What happens if rodgers has to push down the field a little bit. You know what happens if they can't rotate the three running backs and they just have to keep aaron jones and there and then also there's the old man brady stuff like no literally this you think about the forty three year old dude out there in the frozen tundra. That's not the environment he wants to be in. You know what happens if they have to rely on him. Chucking the ball to comeback kinda similar tonight game against kansas city. Where they were they were not able to get there. But but really. I i think that of the two games. This game is more likely to produce an upset basically. And maybe i'm wrong right. I've been wrong many times before. I will continue to be wrong Many times in my life. But i do think that this game does seem a little bit more ripe for an upset yet. It seems like the bucks man and this is maybe completely anecdotal which i usually try to avoid. But it seems like the bucks haven't really put together their best game or a couple of their best games. Consecutively and i mean i think i think you could maybe even say the buccaneers best game this year. Well obviously it was the detroit lions game right but then maybe you can even say their best game was actually against the packers in week. Five thirty eight to ten win game. Three hundred twenty four yards on offense gave up only two hundred and one yards on defense. But yeah i mean even that that crushing win against the falcons the week before that they are against the lions they played the falcons pretty close. You know thirty one twenty seven. They lost that game. Where the chiefs they lost to the rams they had that embarrassing new orleans saints law. So i i think you're right. I think this is really just been a team that has struggled to stay consistent over the course of the season for sure you know. It's pretty amazing. Todd bowles. I thought i had a really good game. Plan defensively for that first game against the packers and he's kind of a perfect example. Davis may be of the nfl in the fact that some guys are really really really good coordinators. Then it's really hard to be a head coach granted. He didn't maybe have the most talented jets team but Todd bowles may be one of those guys and we still see. Nfl teams kind of giving guys shots whether they have been head coach before then back to being a great coordinator then get another shot as a head. Coach like some guys are just really good coordinators. Do you think it's as simple as that. Yeah i mean some guys really understand. Football they really understand their side of the game but they you know a lot of guys. Don't have the game theory sense right. We see this all the time. You know coaches don't know when to punt they don't know when to go for too like they just don't understand those elements of football at all. I mean that literally happens all the time. Some guys just don't know how to handle a team. They don't know how to motivate. They don't know how to talk with the players. I think we we see that with gays. Where certainly he knows a lot about football but it just seems like i can think of one player. That's ever had anything nice to say about him. And i think Jay cutler a weird bromance going on. I'm a bears fan. There we go there. We go color color at something. Nice to say then. He followed into miami and things did not go. Yeah so yeah. It could be that with todd bowles. It could just be. They have a lot of really good players on that defense right. They have a bunch of all pro quality. Guys are going to be getting vida back this weekend. I it could be as simple as that. I mean i. For example i think bruce arians is the abachi is the worst coach of the four coaches loved. I think he makes it leads to mistakes every single game in terms of preventing his team for making winning decisions. But he's got tom brady. He's got my evans. Got chris godwin. He's got into brown. He's got rob gronkowski so they can just win games like that and yelp. It doesn't necessarily matter 'cause having great players gives you you can slip up more when you have great players. Basically you're meant leflore obviously as aaron rodgers. he's an example of a coordinator who so far as looked pretty good as a head coach. What do you like about what the packers have been able to do offensively this year while obviously the thing they do the best is they. Complete passes way above expectation. Right like aaron rodgers. All year led the nfl. Incomplete passes over expectation. And that's even including you know marquez. Valdes scantling leading the nfl and drops and and crap like that. So i think they have dialed up. Just a bunch of really intelligent routes i think they know exactly what davante adams and eh rogers are capable of and the and they basically just let him go to work like i think essentially little floor. Just let's aaron rodgers stay in his comfort zone and i think that's really strong. I also think they do a good job not getting bogged down running the ball. You know they're not a team that runs the ball on second and ten. They know to to get the ball out and to be constantly trying to play for my head because you playing from ad really is the biggest advantage in the nfl because it just allows you to do so much more than your opponents. It allows play action to stay. You know i. it's just it is just by far. I think one of the biggest advantages. That doesn't get talked about kind of on a national level. And i think they're really good at that davis matic this as we get ready for the games this weekend. Let's head to kansas city and talk a little bit about the chiefs and the buffalo bills in august. First thing what is the line does the movement or maybe lack of movement here in the last day or so davis tell you About patrick mahomes in in his status as we tape this right now and as people listen to this on thursday afternoon the chiefs. About three point favorites. Yeah i mean. I think the line as it exists basically says patrick mahomes is gonna be there on sunday. I think that you know if it was if it was chad. Any i think the line would probably be more like bills by five or something like that off but but on the other hand maybe it says that they're not fully confident because again these are another two teams that played each other in the regular season and the chiefs blew them out know that game. That really was not competitive. That was all the way back in week six. The bills scored seventeen points but they gained only two hundred and six yards on offense. Josh joshua that was that was basically The worst josh. Allen game of the year i mean he looked he looks terrible in that game one of the things. I wonder about this game. Is you know what happens to the bills offense. If they get down ten do they do. Does some of the play action stuff. Go ways it harder for them to throw deep when they're needing to move the chains like it's a little bit harder. I think for them to play freely. If that makes sense you know play. Play kind of that that joyful football really that they have been playing this year but i think this game is more likely to me to be entertaining like both teams are are putting up a bunch of points and and trading haymakers so. I'm very much looking forward to this game. I am too. And i would ask if the bills aren't getting enough credit but it seems like with the betting line and with the betting in line with mahomes plane if we use that assumption davis in kansas city. That is a good amount of respect for the bills. I guess yeah. I think they're getting more respect than i would have given them. I say if i if i was booking this line i i don't think i would have given them this much respect. I actually bet this line right win. The odds came out last sunday. Assuming that the line would move over the course of the week as we got news with patrick mahomes and the line has not moved. You know the lion has just stayed steady right where it was. And i do think i think the chiefs should be favored by a little bit more. I you know. I do think they are the superior team and i think some of the things that people get bogged down in Namely that their offense or defense is is not really that strong and stuff like that. I mean those are kind of the things that that end up coming out in the wash when your when your quarterback is the best player maybe ever in the history of the league. What else to go right for the bills for them to not just have a shot but for them to be really really good position in this game. Because we've seen that. It really doesn't matter where the chiefs play from. Davis is especially over the last couple of years in the postseason. Last couple of years it can turn around in an absolute instant. So for the bills What's the roadmap for them to be leaving. Kansas city as Of champions so. I think it's definitely no turnovers right. Maybe maybe one turnover. Maybe you can get away with multiple turnovers. I think there's no way that they're able to get away with that. I think another huge thing is going to be being super aggressive on fourth downs being super aggressive on third and short like basically treating almost every situation once you get past like the forty as kind of like gopher a territory like four down territory. Like i don't i. I don't think that they should be punting very often. I don't think that field goals are going to help them out very much for like if they're kicking field goals unlike four and three. I think that's pretty much a sign that all they want is a close lost. Because i don't think that really is going to do much of anything for them. Yeah we've got teams in the packers chiefs. Who have who have been aggressive. And you mentioned the fleurs playcalling. Do you think football's getting better. And do you think as someone who analyzes the game and as someone who watches the game may be and appreciate some of the innovation. Or i shouldn't even say innovation. It's just using reasons sometimes in numbers. But do you think. Football's a whole the industry is getting better and sometimes not putting or when we bang our heads against the wall. I know it's happened a couple times during the playoffs or not kicking field goal. When when you really shouldn't. Are you encouraged at all with what we saw this year. In the last couple years i am i am encouraged that some teams get it right. I think we see the ravens understands. Yeah yeah i think we see the chiefs under the chiefs went for it on fourth and one for midfield with their backup quarterback to win a game right like. That's probably. I think. Andy reid makes that call. Maybe you see harbaugh make that call right. I think that's a situation where i don't imagine that berry. Many other coaches are going to be making that call. So i get a little bit encouraged. And then i see stuff like that. The press conference that dan campbell had today for the lions. And he you know he doesn't. He doesn't say anything about you. Know we're going to do on offense. We're gonna do this in a different way in. Say anything about his plan to find a quarterback or or or do something different. You know how they're going to win games none of it. He just all football guy crap right about being every cliche about bring your lunch pail and it's like if that's what the guys who are make are doing the hiring decisions want you know. Then then it'll never change then. These guys will never really get a chance because these are the guys who are making the decisions to hire people and they're hearing this just total trifle this this nothing talk and they're like oh that's what we want and head coach which doesn't make much sense to me. Is the lions tweet. Real that the name plate outside his office says dan campbell had coached slash the dude. I guess you guests. It seems real again. It just seems like one of those things like literally what what is point of this like this is so stupid this is so i don't know i don't i don't really understand how. Nfl teams are run from the context of of they want these teams to win games. But i guess really at the end of the day they don't really care if the team's win games you know the people hiring they just wanna make money. That's all they want. They just wanna make money and you know. I guess if that's all you want it doesn't really matter if your head coaches is a a stooge you know. It's just like whatever i guess. Make whatever decisions you want in as a bears fan. It's a little frustrating i I know exactly what you're saying and They set up their last week and Said that you know retaining their general manager ryan pace in their head coach. Matt nagy had nothing to do with money and the lack of revenue from a fan perspective coming in that they really feel like it gives them the best chance to win. And i like to think that fans at this point and in this day and age are are smarter than that. So the fact that some franchises keep getting away with it and and are competitive and they know that they're getting the revenue sharing checks is Is something that. I'm afraid is going to continue to happen. Yeah i mean. It's just a bummer. Right like that's that's really all you can say is that it is just. It's just a bummer. That the because it's a it should be considered a once in a lifetime. Generational thing to be able to own an nfl team and it's not because the people who own them don't care they just run them like a business and because the business is so profitable. They don't even have to do a good job to make money. Give davis follow on twitter. It's the best way to follow everything. He's doing at davis. Matic t e k art before we let you go man. What matchup right now as we sit here. Do you think we end up with when the dust settles this weekend. I do you know what. I think we will get a chiefs. Buccaneers super bowl. And i think it'll be a great super bowl. That'd be fun. yeah very fun. Very excited davis enjoy the weekend. Brother appreciate you hopping. I'm we'll talk soon. Thanks so much for having me. the thousand.

You have a few options to listen to the so this podcast episode will be audio recorded which it actually is recording right now. Actually i have a few cameras going on in some. Mike's and we will be sharing this. I don't know if i'll be putting this on youtube. Because quite honestly they censor pretty much everything. I've been putting up. That is even somewhat controversial lately. But i will be sharing this on itunes spotify. Iheart the hell's call for all those things on Podcasts platforms.

I might not be able to answer them right now on facebook but leave them in the comments and i will get back to them and we'll get back to you and share whatever questions you have but today's episode is all about the two thousand twenty election fraud and there was a massive amount of election fraud. This election cycle trump got completely screwed out of his win. And not only did he win the election but actually won by a landslide. And i'm gonna prove that to you in this video in show you state by state every single state why he won that actual state and why those electoral votes should go should go to him to mara when they have that. Vote on in dc. So with that said there is literally and this is why. Actually there's been a slight delay on delivering you this message because there is actually way more evidence than i even anticipated there being an i already knew that there was a ton but i've been combing through all the research the past few days to bring you all of the evidence. I could find an trust me. There was actually even more evidence out there that i just wasn't able to get to because time constraints and i wanted to get this out before tomorrow because it's a big day and i wanna have you guys call your state legislatures as soon as you see this evidence could. It really is mind blowing. But i'm gonna go through state by state and a few moments and tell you why he won't each state and present all that evidence to you. But actually i wanna cover kind of an overview of some things including the biggest fraud. The big election scam that took place in the twenty. Twenty election on november third. Which was something that you probably heard of which is called dominion voting systems. I'm gonna cover that in detail in a few moments in a moment. And i want to show you exactly why that really is the key to this whole election being a fraud on top of so many other things and i will cover those things individually state by state and i'm covered georgia pennsylvania michigan wisconsin arizona and nevada. Not not order but all those states. I will cover. 'cause i kind of jumped around a little bit and actually i believe i'll be covering michigan. I because it relates to what i'll be talking about dominion in just a moment but if you guys have any questions at all make sure that you share them in the comments section. Also make sure you shared this video with your friends and really get the message out as much as possible. Even if you're watching it live if you're watching it on the rewind sherrit with as many friends as possible. It may get sensor to make taken down on facebook. Which is why i have backup cameras going on so i am doing a facebook live right now but i m also recording it separately so that if improbably when it gets pulled censored because many my other videos have been pulled in censored in the past i will have that hard copy and i will share and other platforms so it still will be around. All the evidence will be around by the way. This is obviously alive. So i won't be able to show you images and links and all that stuff. But i will be providing those images and links in the backup video so i will put all the stuff and make it really nice and fancy and more presentable in the other video. Because i'll have a little more time to do that. Me and my team will go through the images. It'll be a lot better in. It'll be i think a little not like this won't be committed. This is going to be incredibly convincing your mind but it will be a little bit better to see these images and some of the links and stuff. When i actually. When i'm saying these things are just kind of throw them into you can check those out as well but yeah it's it really is mind blowing when dive into some of the details also. I do want to mention if you're not on the newsletter. Go to elite men magazine dot com slash newsletter. Sign up today. That's elite magazine dot com slash newsletter and sign up today to get all of the content information all the stuff that get censored pulled down. It will never be censored on the newsletter.

Youtube has facebook has instagram has many times but no matter what the newsletter has all the information. That's men magazine dot com slash newsletter. Sign up right now and also while a mad at one quick little message is check out the book. Elite mind book at elite. My book dot com. It's really has all this information that we're talking about as far as health goes and covert and keeping yourself safe in nutrition all. That's the talk about specifically those things but it talks about the mindset necessary to overcome those types of things and overcome the bullshit and all the fraud and really having the mindset you overcome and prevail a lot of the shit. That's going on in our world today so it doesn't necessarily talk talk about those things but it talks about the right mindset to overcome those in talks a lot about nutrition and health as well so that's elite mind book dot com. But that's all. I'm going to say for sponsors and commercials today one kind of leave this episode pretty clean and just dive right into all the evidence because again there is so much evidence and really just kind of dive into the meat of what's going on so let me take a quick sip of water and leave your comments again in also share this video if you get a chance. Tomorrow's a big day january six washington. Dc i believe there's probably going to be two to three million. American patriots marched down there rich. I wish i could have made myself. But i wasn't able to make it but i think there's going to be a few million people there that want justice for trump and rightfully. So they see this video when you guys see this video of all the evidence you're going to want justice to but let's dive right into so the the first thing i wanna talk about. The first thing is anyone who's watching election night and actually was watching it like a hawk. Like i was and i know many people friends on facebook as well. They're watching it like a hawk because we were convinced that trump was going to get screwed some way shape or form. We knew that it was going to happen. In some regard. We just didn't know how it was going to be. And so we were watching all the numbers all the states coming in. We saw georgia. We saw north carolina's of the pennsylvanian. We're pumped about florida because that blue everyone's mind all the polls the fake polls. By the way he had he was down in wisconsin by seventeen points the last week of the election which is totally a fraud. Poll it's suppression poll to to make people believe that trump didn't have a chance to win and these polls were all across the country by the way but it was a suppression pulled to make people think he didn't have a chance of that. They didn't show up to vote which is actually real thing. And they did this. Across the board with wisconsin and michigan and pennsylvania and florida doubt. I believe five points in florida in the last poll and he ended up winning by three and a half points florida which is rightfully so. He should have one same thing with ohio. By the way he was down by a couple of points in ohio and ended up winning by seven points or so eight points in ohio. Now i say this because all the suppression everything went in the media the fake news fake polls. Obviously the covid scam whether you believe that it was sent directly from china which i believe or even just the fact that the democrats and the radical left capitalize on the fact that cova was around and that was the they they set it up long story short they set it up so that covert would come. Everybody would stay home. They would have a chance to Have all these mail in ballots. Go out incredibly like in record numbers ten times more than they ever had before. And we'll go through some of the numbers in a moment for how they actually did this. It was all set up. I mean this whole thing was set up so that trump would lose and that biden would win not so much. That biden is a great president or not so much that he's a great democrat but that they hate trump so much and he's the only outsider in washington washington's full of swamp rats. They're all part of the same republicans and democrats by the way. They're all part of the same swamp. There's so many crooked Republicans out there mitch. Mcconnell for one and of course there's so many the crooked democrats as well but that said we're watching it like a hawk on election night and we see all of a sudden around nine thirty ten o'clock the the states that trump was up digging massive actually in. We'll go through these numbers in second of his abides. Chances of winning at that point but trump was ahead. Three hundred eleven thousand and ten votes with at seven point. Five percentage points with eighty three percent of the vote in georgia and pennsylvania. Trump was ahead. Six hundred eighty two thousand six hundred sixty four votes with fifteen. That's fifteen point. Two percent of the vote of fifty point two percent up trump is up by fifteen point two points and with sixty four percent of the vote in michigan trump was up three hundred six thousand and eighty nine volt votes in nine point. Six percentage points up with fifty nine percent basically sixty percent of the vote in in michigan and wisconsin. Trump was ahead by one hundred. Twenty seven thousand two hundred seventy votes. And that's four point nine percent up with eighty two percent of the vote and by the way you look at four point nine percent and then you look at that suppression pool of seventeen percent and you. You wonder why people are pissed off. You wonder why people don't listen to the news anymore. Why they call it. The fake news eighty two percent of the vote in. He's up for four point nine percent hundred twenty seven thousand votes and we're all watching us on election night and all of a sudden when trump is about to win they called all the other states for buying the called some for trump. He's about to win and they just stopped counting the votes and there was many excuses. Made up in all different states had their own little. Excuse some states didn't actually come up with any explanation just stopped counting votes but we all knew deep down inside everyone who watching that vote. And it's an honest person knew deep down. At that moment he was getting screwed and i posted. You can go back on my post do that night. I was like what the hell's wrong with philadelphia. What the hell's wrong with you know. Detroit why they stopped counting votes georgia. He already won that state hours ago. And this is like two three in the morning. I'm saying why why they stopped counting the vote. Like what the hell is going on here. We knew something was up big time and we're all wondering why the hell did they stop counting these. And then you know the states come up with these excuses and they ended up fact checking these things that are not true but we all knew something was that we all knew something was up big time and in a moment. I'm going to go through and explain exactly what was up and how they cheated. They cheated though because trump not only did he. Did he win this election. But he won by such a huge number that they're cheating beforehand with the mail in ballots and all the other stuff that they were doing. Fake fake names fake addresses dead. People voting people that hadn't voted for years or taken their names and using their names to vote. He they did all this stuff already. But trump had once so big in all these states. These swing states in question here. The georgia michigan pennsylvania wisconsin arizona and and nevada. He'd won so big in these states that they had to stop the count because if they continued to count he would actually one and should have. He would have and should've went on election night and they would have been screwed. Their plan would have been foiled this dominion system cheating all the other stuff that they use would have been foiled because trump trump supporters showed up so big on election night on november third on next election day that election night. He actually broke the system that they had of cheating. And they had to backtrack stop counting votes for many hours that night and find more votes to actually make that huge amount. And we're gonna go through exactly what they did to make up that huge amount and how they got caught cheating because he will win by just a little bit. He won by an absolute landslide that night and and that's why that's why they had to cheat. That's how they got caught because if he didn't win by a landslide would have never found this information because they they already had stuff in place and they would have got away with it most most of it anyways they gotta wait most of it but in then you look at some of these are just you know Not real facts but but commonsense things. These are all the things. I'm talking about right now common sense. We're gonna talk about facts in a moment but biden couldn't get more than a dozen cars or showed us so show up at his rallies you look at the trump rallies regularly got forty to fifty k people showing up at every single rally enthusiast for trump was off the hook. I mean it was really insane. How many people would go to these rallies. It's like a rock concert. Meanwhile you got you know five or six cars. Honk and every time biden says something stupid at a at a biden rally and then you then you actually look at the numbers on election night. He supposedly biden had fifteen million more votes than obama. Who you could compare obama's enthusiasm to that of trump's very similar. I would say trump probably has a little bit more like his rallies or a little more enthusiastic but the people that supported obama. I'll give him credit. They really support. Obama biden. didn't have anything. He had crickets at his rallies. He had crickets at his little speeches and nobody was showing up to them. Because nobody cared about biden. And that's the even said we don't need you to show up. We don't need you to vote. We just need you to support me after we win. And then of course he had the whole fraud thing about having the greatest fraud system in place in in american history. I mean there's just one thing after another that lead you lease normal people to believe or or common sense people to believe that there was a lot of fraud going on in this election. Also the fact that the house seats were picked up by many many house. Seats were picked up by. Gop reps yet biden somehow. Want so basically when you're going down and you're looking at these votes biden had so many votes where it was just biden by himself and nobody went down and actually voted along the ticket with other democrats and so like the states. They actually lost a lot of seats in the house and they actually in in republicans actually almost one and the same thing with the senate. By the way that he we would have won. The senate had it not been for these swing states at at the very end we got screwed but the same thing we we picked up as gop and we. I'm not even a republican. But i'm saying the gop picked up many seats and it does not make any sense. That biden would win by such a convincing win yet on the other side so what. Actually that indicates that people were going through last minute and filling out just by just by just buying because they didn't have time to go down the ballot and fill out the whole thing and yeah so over. One million ballots in swing states in question recounted without gop monitors to oversee their authenticity in swing states. Set this unmonitored count. Far in in these swing states that far the unmonitored count far exceeds the margin for victory. That biden had which would actually give all of these swing states by the way a victory to trump so when. You don't have monitors watching these ballots. The ballots become null and void. That's actually part of the law and all these states legislative Law has the. It's set in stone that you have to have both sides. Democrats and republicans viewing these ballots and in many of these states. Thousands hundred thousands of of these ballots. Were not only not check by gop but not even checked by by democrats because a lot of these people throughout both sides and didn't have any monitors looking at these balanced. There was just a couple of these people working together and they would just flooding these machines especially in the middle of the night when the kicked everybody out and they came up with these lame ass excuses like the water main break in in georgia which we'll talk about but These ballots loan would overthrow the these. These loans should be thrown out. There legally accounted there. They were put it in secret hidden from the public. Who the hell knows where they came from. Who the hell knows what they even set on them. When you're stuffing thousands and thousands and tens of thousands of ballots into the coin counting machines. When nobody's around. nobody knows. what's on those ballots. You could magically say. Biden was on those ballots. You could save big on those ballots for anybody knows because no one was looking at them and it actually breaks the law in should in fact be thrown out. Those ballots should be thrown out. And if any of these court cases were actually heard any of these judges had any spine in any of these states trump easily won because all those all those ballots as it turns out ended up being for biden. Which we'll talk about again in a moment these. I'm just going through a couple of things before. I dive in some of music. This also all these things really took place in really a handful or or several democrat run cities places with a long history of corruption philadelphia. Pittsburgh milwaukee detroit minneapolis las vegas phoenix atlanta hubs. That were in these major swing states. Here that we're talking about is really where the overwhelming majority of fraud took place where they knew that they could get away with these with this cheating with the with the stuffing of the balance with the kicking out the gop observers kicking out any observers with the bring in truckloads of ballots in the middle of the night and suitcases. That took place really took place in the most corrupted democrats democratic cities and this is where the majority of the votes came from Also there are one thousand sworn affidavits which is actually people. Say the affidavit thing and they'll say oh well you know anybody can say anything of is not in court or this or that. These are actually sworn affidavit. So the people. These thousand witnesses swore seeing different things of of voter impropriety or cheating. They're actually under perjury. They they swear on when he signed the affidavits under penalty of perjury which is two to five years in prison. That what they see is actually true. And if they're proven wrong they they go to jail so these people aren't just making these things up there all. Maybe there's a couple of get up over a thousand sworn affidavits. There's literally a thousand people that put themselves out there on the line to say they saw real corruption and fraud going on election night. That's that's legitimate. Also there's a doctor named dr. I believe it's chetty or kakheti. Probably chetty is the former deputy director at the energy and environmental police center at harvard. University's john kennedy school of government and receives economics from rutgers university. So here's a harvard guy. Which many of the left love love the elite universities. Here's a harvard guy. Talking about his calculations for probability of joe biden winning on election night when donald trump was up so big in those states. I just mentioned those four big states that he ended up losing in. Here's the probability of biden. Actually pulling off all those states and coming back from that huge deficit in all those states the improbability of that happening he factored he. He did a long equation. And did all these formulations and came up with the number of one. And not even just one in one in one quadrille chance of joe biden winning but one in one quadrille into the fourth power of joe biden winning and pulling off all of those come from behind miraculous win. So he'd have to and by the way that number is is one and then sixty zeros. So let's talk about billions and talk about trillions to talk about. I believe it would be quadrant Trillions and then you do that to the fourth power you get sixty fucking zeros. That's how many zeros it was. That's the improbability of joe biden coming from behind and winning on election night but somehow miraculously pulled it off and basically not even basically but literally. this is impossible. Statistically impossible that what happened in occurred on election night is actually legitimate. That's according to a harvard professor which again everybody on the left seems to love when it benefits them but in this case they don't love anymore but all right so those numbers again Georgia he was up by some point. Five percent with eighty eighty three percent in fifteen percent in pennsylvania at sixty four him and nine point six percent with fifty nine percent and in michigan wisconsin. Eighty two percent was in and he was up. Nearly five percentage points now the also famous video of mentioned them kicking people out. The gop monitors a mostly and famous video. You can look it up. And by the way i'm gonna have all these links and all the videos and stuff. I'm going to post that in the second video that i post which has all this in it. It's going to have all the information going to be a lot easier to kind of follow. I'm just reading this off the The notes that i took over the past few days. And i have all the links and everything in here. I just haven't had time to put it all together for you. But i will. If you can check you can check out every single one of these things. I'm talking about verify. It i want you to do your own research and not. Just take my word for because a lot of people will just think this is bullshit especially if you're on the left already and you hate trump. You're going to think what i'm saying is bullshit but i've actually verified. It's backed up by proof. Every single one of these things is either video proof or Multiple different sources that. Prove it as well. And i had those sources but there is a famous video of the radical left counters in detroit cheering as they kick out the gop election monitors and gop lawyers on election night. There's actually election must have been election night or was election morning that early early morning when they were trying to. You know stuff those ballots in and get all those cheating votes in all. The gop monitors were kicked out and by the way. There's another video which i have linked to as well where they're boarding up and you've probably seen both of these or maybe heard about both of these but there's another video where they're posting paper all around the the counting room so people can't actually look into the rooms anymore and see what's going on which again. Why the hell would they be doing that. This should all be transparent. They should all be having you know. Republicans and democrats on both sides looking at the vote but for some reason the gop monitors. We're supposed to be looking at those votes where were kicked out of the rooms. And then when they came back in the rooms the the paper was put up in those counting rooms so that they could actually look into those rooms and see what the ballots were saying. Any dummy can come up with the conclusion of why they would want to hide those ballots while they would want to kick out the gop monitors. I'm just leaving it up to you to decide. But i'm pretty sure we both know the answer to why that happen now again before i dive into each state which i will give you. Specific numbers and exact reasons. Why trump actually each state georgia pennsylvania michigan wisconsin arizona and nevada. I always to say las vegas nevada because it's just like the biggest city and it's the most famous but nevada. So you've got those six eight. I'll give you actual numbers actual real numbers with evidence as to why trump won each of those individuals states and by the way all he really needed was three of those states so he could win say pennsylvania. He could win michigan and he could win. Georgia which i believe are like the first three. I'm going to talk about those. Those ones by the way had just unbelievable evidence like so so blatant. Those are the worst ones in my opinion but wisconsin was bad as well. Arizona was bad too and nevada was pretty bad as well. He won all those states. But those first three that i mentioned and those are like the big ones. He overwhelmingly won those states in. I'm gonna show you the numbers in just a moment and to to actually prove why he did and why this Vote tomorrow should go in his favor. I'm looking at some of the comments. Right now and justin. What you guys are saying. Okay cool are see for still good to go mark. Good to go. So dominion i talk about dominion because it really is the key to this whole fraudulent structure of of november third voting and how democrats joe biden really still devote by the way. The reason why this podcast was a little bit delayed was because joe biden is so damn good at cheating. His his team was literally. There was so much evidence that it was. It wasn't like. I was taking forever. Because i couldn't find shit. It was like i was taking forever because it was so much shit. I didn't really even know where to start. There was like overwhelmingly overwhelming evidence to an al and only got as much as i could this literally so much out there so you could even do your own research and find it. But joe biden was an actual he was. He was a winner at at cheating he was he was a champ. He's a world-class champion at cheating and his team and all the democratic establishment and the deep state. They're really damn good at it but they're really good at it. They just weren't good at really hiding it because trump was even better at at getting real votes and so they had to cheat even more and they got sloppy but dominion is really the key to this whole thing. Dominion is a canadian company. And by the way. I'm reading these notes. So i'm i'm kind of looking down know i'm not really looking up like i probably should be but I have to read some of these notes and make sure the numbers and stuff are specific and accurate but dominion is a canadian company. Founded by two canadians has a long history of involvement with other companies particular particularly with a company called smart matic smart matic as a multinational company that builds implements electronic voting systems. You've probably heard of dominion you might have heard a smart matic and you probably going to hear of another company called sequoia which i'm going to talk about a minute which is all connected and even basically essentially one and the same but smart matic continuing on the smart matic was founded in about two thousand and three to two thousand and four originally had investors The to investors were from venezuela and they had close ties to hugo chavez and hugo chavez was of course the dictator in venezuela and these guys essentially came up with and invested in this company. Smart matic so that hugo chavez could could win is elections and cheat just like joe biden. Didn't this election. Smart matic was essentially put in place to help the dictator hugo chavez when in venezuela and it worked it actually. They helped multiple times when using this cheating system. But according to testimony way back in two thousand six by democrat representative and by the way this is the democrats. And i'm gonna talk about some other. Democrats that were against dominion voting systems as smart matic as well in a moment but these are the democrats a few years ago when they didn't know about trump when trump wasn't even a you know an idea of of potentially being a president one day these democrats lined up they hated dominion. They hated smart matic but all of a sudden now when it doesn't favor them and it and it supports trump's whole claim of election fraud. Now they're saying that trump is crazy. The saying conspiracy theorists are saying that dominion's great. There's no problems with many but let me just go through. Because in two thousand six democrat representative carolyn. B maloney from new york said smart mad at could not be trusted because of its ties venezuelan dictator hugo chavez and the widespread belief. It helped him win reelection. It did help them win reelection. And again i got all these links and sources you can go back and check them after. But but carolyn b maloney who now could care less about two million because helped joe biden in two thousand six was very much opposed to dominion and she actually put a lot of pressure on them which you know good for her back then before she became a crook she had she basically put pressure on them and rather than face. A committee of foreign investment in the united states by caroline being led by carolyn b maloney and other dams and probably some republicans as well smart matic essentially sold off sequoia. Which was their subsidiary. Name was a company that they have but it was basically so they owned it. It was them but they kind of changed the name. No running business through sequoia. So this is where sequoia comes into play so they so smart matic which again had the ties to dominion is sold off to sequoia sold off sequoia even though it's really not sold off at all it's just put into a different name. They sell all their ties to sequoia off. And it's later revealed that smart maddox still owned and controlled many aspects of sequoia as part of this deal which included financial control over several aspects of sequoia ownership of the intellectual property rights. Some sequoias election products that were deployed in the us. And the right to negotiate foreign a business. So they ch. They sold their assets off which already owned sequoia which is a subsidiary they sold sold their assets off which they didn't and they still own some of this sequoia even when they technically did sell it off and thus koya are essentially one in the same in two thousand six cook county illinois. The second most populous county united states had many problems using sequoia voting system. Problems were suspected to be related to a software. Error of the voting system became much contested election and needed multiple investigations before being resolved before they essentially banned using before bending using smart matic ever again so there was so many problems with the sequoia slash smart mag voting system in two thousand six with the cook county election and there was a lot of controversy going back and forth. They banned it because it was so bad. Also the two thousand seven investigative report by good old. Dan rather who is a crook by himself and you know a fraudulent journalist and you know his credibility has been long shop actually very interesting because he he investigated back in two thousand seven and charge sequoia with deliberately supplying poor quality punch card ballots to palm county beach florida for the two thousand election. Now you heard of the controversy with two thousand two thousand election with the hanging chads and the holes in ballots and all that stuff. According to former sequoia employees the ballots were palm beach county were purposely made and produced with paper and manufacturing processes that. Were outside of normal specifications this supposedly. They did this because they wanted to. Cause problems with the ballots. The hand ballots. So that's the going forward. They would switch over to to promote their sales of the electronic voting system. So they did this intentionally because back then there were in the business of making these paper ballots. They gave them shitty ballots on purpose. So that the that there would be issues going on in that they would want to switch to and basically by their new products going forward which are more expensive and more profitable. They wanted to buy their new products. Which were the electronic. Voting systems aka the dominion voting systems going forward. So there was there was a great problem with in two thousand. The election obviously with the bush v gore and that whole mess but After the two thousand election problems florida did start to use the. I'm going to switch that video. Real quick they did start to use. Fuck okay so right so sorry about that caused. The camera went out for a second all right so but in in after the two thousand election after all the problems they actually did switch over so that their plan work they switched over to the To to replace the punch card voting systems and use the touchscreen voting counting systems that sequoia had at the time however there were major problems with the touchscreen systems and two thousand seven florida ordered the counties to replace them with optical scan systems by july first two thousand eight and sequoia offered to buy back its machines for one dollars. Each and this offer was rejected. Their machines were so bad so shitty so awful and so problematic. That florida didn't even want to give them back this money and there was just so pissed off at using their system that they wouldn't even sell it back to them for a dollar each. That's how they're mad they when they basically kicked him out of the state because they were shitty. They knew they got screwed over in the news. They got played. June fourth twenty ten sequoia is bought by a canadian. Company called dominion. Now this is where dominion comes into play and with. It came smart matic software. Which of course was used to flip the venezuelan elections. Actually some other elections as well in different countries. Use it kind of Probably two or three other countries as well but this dominion comes into play in two thousand ten. Now dominion again is the smart matic. It has all the software from sequoia from from from smart matt from days of a votes wishing. and don't believe what these people have been telling. You don't believe with this guy eric coomer. Who was the vice president of Of dominion said twenty. Seventeen is a video of him actually stating of showing how to alter votes using the dominion system. Now the asked eric coomer on the record. He would say it's impossible. And that's what these guys have said. It's impossible to switch votes From say biden the trump and this is all made up conspiracy talk. Actually he says it in two thousand seventeen video. I have that link to that video where he's admitting to actually showing how to switch. Votes alter votes using dominion also in two thousand twenty. Eric coors caught saying antifa. It's funny that this is part of antique isn't it. He says an antifa conference call that he has made sure that trump will not win. I think he was a little more Vulgar than that. It was something to the effect of. He'll make sure that motherfucker doesn't win and Eric the vp of of Dominion is going on record stating that right before the election. That he's already insured that he's not gonna win a ak using the dominion systems. They're going to cheat their asses. Often gonna win dominion also tried by the way to get into texas multiple times in two thousand. Nineteen minute tempted third Try to get into texas electoral system and it was rejected because texas was ahead of the game. They knew all the fraud and all the corruption and the new the ties to venezuelans cetera. And the new the testimony by by the democratic representative and they said no also in two thousand nineteen elizabeth. Warren amy komitch. Aw ron wyden and mark. Po can all raised concerns about dominion voting systems and a twenty nineteen letter stating in two thousand eighteen alone voters in south carolina reporting machines that switch their votes after they inputted them. Scanners were rejecting paper ballots. In missouri and busted machines were causing long lines in indiana letter. Reads quote in addition researchers recently uncovered previously undisclosed vulnerabilities in nearly three dozen back. End election systems in ten states. And just this year. After the democratic candidates electronic tally showed he received one hundred sixty four votes out of fifty five thousand cast and the pennsylvania state judicial election in two thousand nineteen and the counties. Republican chairwoman said. Nothing went right on election day. Everything went wrong. That's a problem so you have warned you have wide and you had. Po can who all raised legitimate concerns about dominion voting systems in just twenty nineteen last year before this election. They're talking about the two thousand eighteen election all the concerns about that now. It's funny though because all these people haven't said a peep about the concerns this election and all the obvious voter fraud from from dominion because now the narrative doesn't shift their favorites. It's it's actually the opposite now. It supports trump in all his claims of election fraud in the dominion fraud. And all these people don't say a word anymore. They all referring to the two thousand eighteen election when they did this and now sudden. They're you know silence mouse and that's the end of it. That's the end of their controversy. They don't care anymore because it doesn't affect them and what their ultimate goal is but it did effect them just two years ago and actually just one year ago there was still talking about it and then so you also had a guy named andrew. Appel was a princeton professor. And this guy and again. Probably i don't know for sure but most likely a super liberal. Because he was talking about the in this article. I believe it was political. They were talking about. And i have the link. I think it's political the article where he's talking about the easiness for the election to be stolen for trump and this was back. I believe in twenty sixteen. Yeah it was two thousand sixteen right before the twenty sixteen election when he was talking about these sequoia voting machines that can aka dominion voting machines. How easy it is to hack into these things and how easy it would be for trump to cheat and actually win the election because of the vulnerability that these machines had and by way he did as an example he bought one of these machines he hooked it all up and him and his team made a video and everything they hacked this machine and just seven minutes and we're able to manipulate the votes and change the votes and do whatever the hell they wanted. That's how easy these machines are to To hack into and also manipulate and again this is another guy. Most likely super liberal. Who in two thousand sixteen had much at great concerns about sequoia excuse me sequoia voting machines and dominion but again. I haven't heard of people from this guy or about this guy in four years and especially the last few months since trump got screwed over. Smart matic posted a tweet on november fourteenth. Twenty twenty stating quote against false statements. The facts smart magic not own dominion voting systems It may not own it but it's the same thing. There are part of the same company so yes sure maybe technically they don't own it but it's the same company That's me saying that. Dominion dominion voting systems and has never provided dominion with any technology. That's alive smart. Matic has never had ties with any government or political group anywhere in the world. That's also a lie as you'll find out in just a moment. The chairman of smart matic is lord mark malloch brown who sits in the british house of lords and the board of george soros is open society foundation. George soros as you may very well know is a huge democrat. he's a super radical left liberal and he has ties any actually funds not just size but he funds antifa black lives matter all the radical left groups so for them to even say that. There's no political ties or or groups that have affiliation with Is a complete. Because it's ally this guy lord. Browne sits on he. He's the smart matic chairman and he sits on the board. He's literally george soros. Who's right hand man lord mallock brown raise shores as right hand man. He was also formerly the vice chairman of sources investment funds. And even the deputy secretary general the united nations when he worked as chief of staff to kofi annan and so in two thousand fifteen as well this guy mark mallock brown lord ballot brown was had a one of these election. Countries by the way was the philippines that They got screwed over in using this system so it was also venezuela was also the philippines was twenty and they got sick of 'em after a couple of years. The smart matic systems reporter from the philippines said two thousand fifteen quote. The question on people's minds wise smart matic even still here in the philippines after reports it had violated provisions of the election. Automated law number one for example that it was never allowed to bid in the two thousand ten elections because it did not actually own software dominion owned software dominion voting own the software plus the difficulty that they had to put the commission on elections in order to access the course so source code issues like that your thoughts. She's interviewing malik. Brown mark mallock brown. People say we should not be subjected to smart matic again. This time around the again. They were pissed off that smart matic. They knew it was a fraud. They knew it was a scam and they were pissed off that they were using it again. This is mark. Malloch brown's answered. Yes well i think that's debts competitors who say that the fact is yes. A part of our technology is licensed bar dominion. But you tell me. A large technology company which isn't using in part licenses from other companies and we have a license for the international use of that particular piece of the technology reporter so mark. Let me just get caught in there and ask you the license. Issued by dominion for you to use for proprietary software. That is a live license for you to use. Yes so there you go. That's the connection by the way mark brown again. They're lying about the connection. They're they're one in the same. They are one in the same mark. Mallock brown and i have a link to this by the way video. You check it out yourself. But he says right there in plain english that yes there is. There's a connection. We use their software. dominion voting systems. Ceo john policy says their machines are not designed to be online policy. Made the statement during testimony before the michigan state oversight committee on december fifteenth twenty twenty however just last week wednesday december thirtieth twenty twenty during his live testimony before the georgia's senate judiciary subcommittee on elections inventor yovany hutton pulitzer giovane pulitzer hacked into a dominion voting machine. Live during his testimony. Pulitzer also confirmed that the georgia runoff election going on right now is connected to the internet. He established a two way communication from polling pat and a voting centre live on. Tv live during that that hearing and he said quote in at this very moment at a polling station in the county not only do we have access through the do the device to the poll pad system. But we are in. They're literally in. They can control what's going on he continued. It's not supposed to have wifi. And that's not supposed to be able to happen. So we've documented now it's communicating to ways in real time beating it's receiving data and sending data. This should never happen. Shouldn't be wi fi. We've now documented in real time. And this i covered dominion because again. This is an all the swing states. Every single swing state that in question here used dominion and they used it to cheat trump out of the election. I'm going to go through some of the evidence and the numbers in just a second. I'm getting just a second but it really. Is that important to know. And by the way you have mallock brown you have this guy the What the hell was his name. John paul loss appro- loss pelos the ceo of dominion voting machines. And then you have the zimmer guy. Eric zimmer the name zimmer right yeah you have all these ever are coomer coomer eric coomer. You have all these guys. The heads of this dominion voting system. They're all lying about the com- the connections to smart matic connections to sequoia that the ties to the venezuelan fraud elections the ties to the philippine fraud elections. You have the lies about the software that they are still using. You have the lies about the fact that they can't they're not online. They said that they weren't alanya. Had the live off of them saying that could be hacked into. They couldn't switch votes all. These things have been proven either by them in interviews or proven in real time by somebody else who is showing that they were full of shit. That's just dominion for you. That's what they are. They're full of shit. They're a company that's actually made to to steal elections and they've been doing it for years and they actually did big time probably is well in the twenty eighteen election's but for one hundred percent certainty and the two thousand twenty election which screw trump out of out of his win. So it's it's very interesting to see how easy these people are to lie about things and try to cover it up and then when facts to come out those videos get censored those links to the websites get pulled down. You know this information's kind of lost in the shuffle. But it's there. I got all of it. I got it all Saved and i will be sharing all this for you guys to check out yourself. 'cause i'm share all kinds of and by the way this is i know. This is a shit dunham information. I'm kind of going fast. But i wanna cover as much as i can. This is a lot but I want to share with you as much as i possibly can because it is that important and again i think Tomorrow's a huge day. You got to contact your legislators. You've got to share this video. You got to share it with your friends your family facebook friends and get this information out as much as possible because it really is that important to To to not just give into the fraud. That's taken place if we if we let them steal this election if we let them give it to biden will never win another election again. We'll never have a free democracy again. They're just going to double down the shit. You think that it was tough enough just to go to these courts and make all these cases and you know try to do this and that we couldn't even get this evidence heard and courts by the way they just threw al all on standing. They wouldn't hear any evidence presenting to you today and all this evidence was there to be presented. They wouldn't even listen to it. You think it was hard enough for us to do that just to try to get back and and make this a fair game again. It was incredibly tough to just even get it to that level and they wouldn't even let us get to that level that's how corrupted the system has become. That's how corrupt the judicial system has become in the courts in this country. And the even the supreme court guys like john roberts who are complete frauds and you know who have been voting for radical ideas the past decade or. So and he. I did it with with obamacare. Swing vote of obamacare but he's been corrupted for a long long time and even some of these other guys. I don't trust any of them. I don't trust kevin. I don't trust conybeare. I don't trust Gorsuch the one. I do trust is clarence thomas. He is a man with a spine. He has a lot of courage. And he's gonna always do the right thing in my view and he's always done the right thing alito also seems to be pretty good as well but but thomas really is A great man. A an american hero in a patriot. But these other people are frauds in my opinion or a couple of them still have chance to to come through maybe cabbie komi but the other ones a frauds. And you can't when you when you have this shit going on. You have easy evidence of provable things going on and you just choose to ignore it or not even look at it this corruption going on this blatant corruption and we gotta do something about it and the first thing we can do is is contact your legislators and make sure that they do the right thing. Tomorrow there's going to be tomorrow. I don't know if we're going to win tomorrow in that fight but tomorrow is going to be huge day regardless. Because there's going to be a huge fight tomorrow in washington. Dc we got millions of patriots showing up many of them probably armed and were demanding justice. We're we're gonna. We're gonna demand that things go the rightful way that trump actually one. And i'm gonna prove it in a second but he actually won in that we demand justice for him that we deserve to have the election that we voted. We deserve to have the results and the president that we actually voted for not this crooked bullshit fraud system that has taken place in this. You know fake president-elect that they've been trying to prayed to us on mainstream media the past few months which you'll biden and this whole scam because biden's just pop it. He's he's literally going to bend down for the globalist and the global like bill gates and soros and all. These guys are going to take over america. They don't give a shit about america. They don't give a shit about your health. They don't give a shit about You know the safety that you're going to be having from against covid and you know coming up with these vaccines that are supposed to help you. It's it's nothing. It's literally nothing about that. It's all about control. It's all about getting rid of america. In chinese has been china has been used as a As a vehicle to help get this towards a global movement. They don't give a shit about this country that give shit about the control that they have over the world and they do have a multiple different means of doing that but trump is one of the only guys if not the only one really standing in the way their plan. That's why it's so important that we elect him and and get him because he is the rightful winner but also because he is the guy who standing up to them. now let's talk state by state. This is really the meat of this entire presentation here. This entire podcast is the state by state definitive evidence that donald trump won the election on november third. Now we'll start first with Michigan michigan and. I want to start first with michigan. Not for any real reason. Aside from the fact that it explains dominion really good and how dominion is connected and then kind of trickles down to all the like like michigan and georgia. It proves that dominion was really behind all this shit and then all the other ones you can kinda get a good idea of how they used indian in those states as well but michigan and georgia really the big ones for how they corrupted those states and flipped them. Choose to biden so let me just pull up the information to be one sec and i'm gonna go right through and just start rattling shit off because this is a lot information but again you can always rewind it you can you. Can you can go back to it. You can look at the presentation. i'm gonna have with all the images and links and all that stuff. That's going to be coming out tomorrow. But i do want to make sure i get all this stuff right and just leave me a comment to if you're enjoying this video at all for if you're sharing it with your friends if you're getting a lot information leamy a quick comment and let me know on facebook. Live by the way for the people. Listening on the podcast. People watching this later on So yeah okay. Got that done pulling up this information and i just want to see something on here to are good to go so michigan first of all. It didn't follow any signature verification and mass. They broke the election laws across the state. it's really a big part of their system to to make sure you verify the signatures especially in the mail in ballots this extent when there was so many male unbalanced that literally like ten times more mail in ballots this year than any year prior to this. They refuse to look at the signature verification. Which should throw those votes out entirely because it goes against state law again. Trump was ahead three hundred six thousand eight thousand nine total votes and this is nine point six percent with fifty nine percent of the vote in on election night. He only lost by the way by one hundred and fifty four k which is higher than than a lot of the other states. I'm gonna mention some of them are just like twelve. K maybe twenty k. Hundred fifty four k seems like a lot but is not a lot when you look at actually all the cheating that took place in all the votes that switched over. I want to explain that and second and All the all the hundreds of thousands of votes actually were trump's that went to biden so another thing too is the two hundred and seventy thousand total votes. Were unobserved again. This violates the laws in michigan which are unconscious which is unconstitutional to do. And this two hundred. Seventy eight thousand. Two hundred seventy thousand votes should be tossed out that right. There would give trump to stay but getting more specific here at four four thirty a m a dump of one hundred thousand votes in the middle of the night for biden came in after everyone was thrown out of the voting center. There were two. Gop monitors surreptitiously remaining along with a dominion employ. Who's was actually disgruntled and pissed off by the way the election fraud of the election. Fraud that he'd been seen during the day and also the election fraud that he knew was taking place by dominion so this guy. Kind of turns onto minion. Who work for dominion. But he turned on dominion and hung around three total people to gop. One dominion Worker and they all stuck around and they witness and this is part of the affidavits but they witnessed multiple trucks and four thirty. Am in the morning. Multiple trucks pulling up thousands of ballots and trash cans and wastepaper baskets being carried into the vote counting room. All these votes went for biden and can easily be seen in the numbers during that specific time you can see all these votes switching over to biden. during that time you got three eyewitnesses. Who saw these votes secretly being stuffed into those coun- counting rooms and being counted while nobody else was around when kicked everybody else out. These guys like secretively stuck around and they saw all the shit going down the street. I witnesses again gets penalty of perjury. These guys aren't just making this shit up. it really happened. It actually reflects what they saw reflects directly with the number of the biden votes during that time now in wayne county there seventy one of the priests precincts that couldn't balance their books meaning. There were more votes than people who actually voted so so seventy one different precincts that couldn't bounce. It couldn't find out like votes are coming and actually the percentage of people who voted those votes got counted were more than more than the actual official number of people who were supposed to have voted so this makes literally no sense and that happened. Seventy one in seventy one different precincts also detroit had about two thirds of the precincts in the city that they couldn't commute or the same thing that couldn't balance the books. It couldn't figure out why there was more voters or more votes counted than actual voters. That's two thirds sixty seven percent of precincts in detroit alone. Which again this is major. One of the major hubs for fraud michigan has counties or counties where more people voted than people who are registered to vote anywhere from one hundred twenty five percent to three hundred fifty percent more. So we're not just talking about a couple of votes here. There may be a little bit off. We're talking about upwards of in some cases three hundred fifty percent more votes than actual voters. That's that's where these numbers get thrown off some presence in detroit again had two to three times more votes than people who lived in the precinct including children like if you even all the people who live there there were still two to three times more. Of course. children can't vote. But you're you're you're even given them extra people when you're adding in fact during the children. And they still have two to three times more counted votes than actual people in those priests who were supposed to vote. This over vote number alone would wipe out binds win and turn michigan into a trump victory. That alone wins. Estate for trump in antrim county michigan twenty two machines. And this is where we get into the dominion again and again. This is in multiple states. Actually every state but multiple states really significantly antrim county michigan. There were twenty two machines that were inspected and found that they had a sixty eight percent error rate in michigan Again using dominion voting systems the allowed error rate prior to this by the federal election commission is just zero point zero zero zero eight percent. That's point zero zero three zero eight percent so literally. A fraction of one percent a thou- thousands of a fraction of one percent is what they're allowed to have for for the federal election commission for some crazy reason. Using these dominion voting systems. The error rate was a full sixty eight percent of of ballots. That's how many that they found to be an error and again that's the so. There's more ballots and era than there's actually ballots. Were not narrow using this shitty flawed and fraudulent system. Only found that be only found because six doubt. This was only found by six thousand votes. Were switched in antrim county from trump to biden scott religious citizen by the name of bill. Bailey Notice this when he knew that when you heard that are found out that biden one interim county and he new fact that nobody in antrim county are in his in his head. He knew that all these people wouldn't be voting for biden so they looked into it a little bit. This guy bill. Bailey turned out to be a patriot. Exposed just how fraudulent and error-prone these dominion systems worse. They looked into it twenty. Two machines found a sixty eight percent error rate michigan light of course and they said that in michigan's run by the way of By the way What the hell's her name Democrat governor is gretchen whitmore whitmer the Probably the worst democrat in the entire country her in newsom and probably Yeah her new semi probably would say take take being the absolute worse than the entire country but whitmer is The one essentially behind this or part of it and they lied about the instead. It was human error and this is total b s. And you know the the machines are great and work awesome but this is all a lie. They tried to cover it up. There was also a eighty one point nine six percent When they looked into this stuff they looked in to they found out. Eighty one point nine four six nine. Six percent of the votes cast were rejected. And this is a little bit different than the error rate because era rates a little bit it kinda factors in some other things but the eighty one point nine six percent is actually probably more important. Because these are. These are the ballots. Excuse me that actually get adjudicated. And when they adjudicate these ballots they actually manually pull these ballots out and then. Excuse me burp okay. So when they pull these ballots out they actually go to a s- they pull aside and they go to a separate room where nobody's around. Nobody's observing these ballots and then they get fixed. They get adjudicated. And the the ballot-counters will will try to figure out the intent of what the voter was trying to do. But they figure out that intent with nobody around would nobody would know gop watchers gop monitors and they basically make up. Whatever the hell they wanna make up and say that oh. This person was trying to vote for biden even though it could say trump for all we know and many of those balanced did say trump but the because they were rejected they get pulled out and they manually get fixed or judicata. And that's the reason why so. Many of these of these ballots have error rates that are ridiculously high in an exponentially higher than the accepted error rate so that they can manually go in. Fix these or cure. These ballots and literally switch them to biden ballots instead of trump alice. And that's exactly what happened. Security records also for the election are missing. The internet connection. Records are also missing in michigan. If not destroyed all this by the way goes against the state election law the election. The election law states. That the that you have to keep this belief for twenty two months you have to keep all this information for twenty. Two months gretchen. Whitmer and her crooks her sidekicks and crooks they all went in and order this information to be either deleted or somehow lost or thrown away mysteriously and nobody can find this information anymore again. All goes against the election state law which would throw these these votes out election. Software was changed inside the ninety day window which again also decertify the results the there's a law specifically in place saying that. You can't do that. They broke that law secretary of state of michigan december. I ordered the co- the county clerk's throughout the entire state to delete all this information. The electronic voting systems records in violation of michigan state law section. One sixty eight point eight one one requiring. They held for twenty months. Which i just said at the time they still in fact at the time december first when they deleted all the twenty twenty information for some reason they still had the twenty sixteen records and the two thousand eighteen records but for some reason they just chose to delete the two thousand twenty records. You know god only knows why they would just pick out twenty twenty and still For some reason to have the other years but That's michigan for you so michigan clearly. There's a number of ways that trump would have one. I just mentioned a few of them is even more. But you take a factor in the dominion voting systems error rate factoring. The two hundred and seventy total votes observed you factor in one hundred k. Drop in the middle of the night. If you look at all these things and he clearly one michigan and you one big time. He won by a landslide. But that's michigan. Let's let's dive in georgia. Georgia trump was ahead by three hundred eleven thousand votes. Three hundred thousand ten votes and seven point five percent with eighty three percent of the vote in lost by only twelve votes. This video evidence of a woman named ruby freeman and her daughter. One drill aka shay moss along with ralph jones junior or senior sorry caught on video smuggling these hidden ballots and putting them into looks like suitcases so technically they weren't suitcases. Whatever else some kind of container for these ballots. That if you go up in fact checker fake websites. They'll say oh that was proven fraud. There weren't they weren't suitcases. They were actually you know Just bags of of ballots instead of suitcases ballots. So that's technically false. That's a lie. They'll make up the stupidest shit because you know video. You can't technically see that. It was a suitcase or some kind of other bag. And they'll say that that's a fraudulent proven fact. Check bullshit lie but what they're saying is complete bullshit and that's alive because if you look at the video you know there was fraud going on and again. I have the links to these videos. You check them out yourself but in the videos ruby freeman and dri moss and ralph jones junior senior. I keep going senior. But they're all pulling out hidden ballots from from undertake from under table and they're stuffing into the counting machines after they kicked out everybody. So there's also another video of this guy ralph jones who was like the director or maybe the guy in charge that night in in georgia in atlanta and he's on audio kicking people out basically telling them you gotta go. We're gonna stop counting at. I believe eleven o'clock eleven pm and then right after everybody leaves. They wouldn't let anybody back in. That's when they start pulling the suitcases or whatever the hell you want to call him bags of ballots hidden from under the table. And that's when these and they're looking around to make sure no one's around and they start stuffing these these vote counting machines and there's other video which i've linked to again we're ruby. I believe it's ruby or or her daughter wonder at one of the two is in. The video stuffing the same ballot into the vote. Counting machine over and over again. I think they have caught like five times. And she's doing it with some other ballots a few more time that she's literally taken the same bind ballots and just stuffing over and over and over again. Because nobody's around to observe what's going on video evidence which they'll lie and say oh that was disproven all that's fake in you know it's total bullshit. It's one hundred percent true and they've actually gone back and looked at this video evidence which is over the course of a few hours and they approximated that eighteen thousand votes just in those just in that little piece of video alone. Eighteen thousand votes were counted. Four biden and that alone would swing the election because trump only lost. I believe by twelve votes. He lost by twelve thousand votes. That one little piece of video evidence has eighteen thousand votes in their fraudulently going for biden. That alone would give the election to trump. but there's so much more in georgia so don't worry this. There's a lot more than just that. George data shows over thirty thousand. Trump's votes were removed another twelve thousand one hundred seventy three switch to biden according to nonpartisan data scientists. These the team was made up of linda mcglaughlin from the data integrity group along with data scientists justin mealy who worked as an electronic warfare technician in the us navy for nine and a half years and it was a former cia contractor as a data analysis analyst and programmer for the national counterterrorism center. And the other guy was dave labou or lab lib you. I don't know his name how to say it exactly but l. o. B. u. e. Lebow a data scientist with over a decade of experience in a number of industry. So these guys have a lot of credibility they They're not just making stuff up there. Nonpartisan what they found was so we have what we have here is actually have what we have is actually fraud that we can prove in this election. There was fraud in georgia's election. We can prove it with data. Mealy said the voting will will of the people of georgia's what certified by the secretary of state according to their analysis which was published online as early as december twenty fourth time series election data show trump's votes were detrimental in various counties instead of increasing as they normally do at least thirty thousand five hundred ninety three votes were allegedly removed from trump as a result including seventy thousand six hundred and fifty votes in dougherty county seven thousand eight votes in dodge county and five thousand nine hundred and thirty five votes in putnam county. The group said a a huge number of trump votes were also observed being switched to biden any separate event. A clear example of vote-switching happened in bibb county. They said at nine eleven pm. Local time trump received twenty nine thousand three hundred ninety one votes as biden simultaneously received seventeen thousand two hundred eighteen votes however in the next report at time. Update trump's votes became biden. Seventeen thousand two hundred eighteen votes and biden's votes became trump's twenty nine thousand three hundred ninety one votes in this single event. Twelve thousand one hundred seventy three votes. Were switch according to the data scientists again all links for the stuff you guys can check it out yourself but that right there gives trump the election in both cases by the way both separate cases would eat either one of those things being true would give trump the election Give georgia the election trump. Clearly these numbers are more than enough to flip to flip georgia. Approximately three hundred k. Votes are also not verified. Absentee ballots and no voter signature verification. So this alone is another big part of the election fraud that took place in georgia so in the year twenty sixteen. There was three percent of signature rejection rate because the signatures didn't match. They do this every year. They did every year until stacey. Abrams came around and sued the state and they switch the laws around unconstitutionally by the way to favor her and the democrats it also cheating this election two thousand sixteen. The percentage of absentee ballots that were rejected because of the signatures not matching or some other form but the signatures especially not matching was three percent like the number three percent in two thousand eighteen. It was three point. Five percent in two thousand and twenty. It was zero point. Three four percents so literally ten times less than say two thousand sixteen or even more than ten times less than that just two years before in two thousand eighteen a signature an official signature audit with actually look at this. And do what's supposed to be done in the law. Signature off of this alone would give between thirty eight to forty five thousand ballots rejected and trump so thirty eight to forty five thousand votes would go to trump if they did this one thing which they've been trying to get that fraud. Brian kemp do for the last two months. You won't do it because he's bought out by the democrats and he also is the guy who in dominion systems because he probably got paid off. And there's some evidence of that as well. That powell has mentioned but this alone would give it to trump. also according to rudy giuliani. Ten thousand three hundred and fifteen dead. People voted in georgia again. You're not going to have anybody look into this. Because they don't want to find the information they don't out there that could easily look into this and look at all the records of dead people that voted and go back in time and you know match them up but they they. They don't want to do this because they don't want to. Reveal that trump actually one there was fraud and the people who are dead were actually voting dominion system. This is another part of the dominion system. Thing by the way depending system was hacked. Live during hearing georgia and again i mentioned this earlier but it was connected to the internet. It's showed the flagrant an easy ability to hack into these systems to change votes around. It was it was by the guy. Pulitzer and again that whole water main pipe bursting was a complete lie. What actually happened. There was a pot so according to officials so the pipe bursts was was told election night to for the reason. Why they stopped the voting. It was later found to not be true officials in georgia have not been able to produce any invoices or work. Orders related to a burst. Pipe atlanta's state farm arena. That was blamed for an abrupt pause and vote counting on election night. In fact the water department in georgia state never even received a call of pipe bursting so miraculously fixed this crazy pipe which stopped all this counting on their own. Never had a call work order place. None of this stuff. The water department was never notified but that was the reason that was the excuse that they gave stop counting the votes Also the evidence of the pipe bursts there was some that came out through text message exchange where senior employees at the stadium at the georgia arena described the The pipe bursts as highly exaggerated. A slow quote highly exaggerated a slow leak that caused about an hour and a half delay and that we contained it quickly it did not spread the only the guy that actually worked at the rena said it was nothing contained. It very quickly highly exaggerated so there you go. That was atlanta georgia. It's trump state in multiple ways three or four different ways. He won that state easily. Pennsylvania is up next all right. So let's see what we got for comments here. Yeah i was just waiting for to see some Some some haters come on and start Start bashing the proof but it doesn't look like they've come on yet so i'm gonna continue. Pennsylvania trump had elite of six hundred eighty. Two thousand. Lost by only eighty-one thousand didn't follow. Pennsylvania did not follow signature verification and mass. They broke the election laws of the state two hundred k. More votes than voters one point. Eight million mail in ballots were sent out in pennsylvania. One point four million officially returned yet. Two million mail in ballots were somehow counted in total on election night. Ninety nine point five percent of the votes that were counted while you slept went to joe biden five. This specific numbers are five hundred. Seventy eight thousand fourteen votes for biden and just three thousand two hundred ninety votes for trump. Again this is the middle of the night when nobody's around no no. Gop officials monitors around. Check these ballots. They just somehow magically ninety nine point five percent of the ballots again six hundred thousand nearly ballots that they needed to come in to make up that lead they did come in and not only that ninety nine point. Five percent of them were all for biden. So you talk about fraud. That's clear evidence of it. There affidavits from hundreds of witnesses which proved that eight hundred and twenty. Two thousand seven hundred. Seventy seven ballots total. We're entered without any observation from independent observer again against the election law of pennsylvania this eight hundred thousand ballot plus all these ballots should be thrown out because it violates clearly the laws of pennsylvania philadelphia and pittsburgh have counties where more people voted than people registered to vote anywhere from one hundred twenty five to three hundred and fifty percent again. Same as detroit Very very bad fraud there in those numbers alone again. These all these different things. Each one of these cases have just one of them were were were to be true which they all are true but if one of them are true trump wins because the margin of victory is so much smaller than the fraud that took place that was so much greater in the numbers of ballots here on october. Twenty first between one hundred and thirty two three hundred eighty thousand completed ballots for the twenty. Twenty general election were shipped from bethpage new york to lancaster. Pennsylvania those ballots and the trailer in which they were shipped disappeared overnight and man by the name of jesse more gonna patriot by the way he wasn't even a fan of trump. he didn't vote for trump but he is a patriot because he he stood up to the truth and he's he's sharing his truth with world. Jesse morgan made a sworn affidavit testimony that he was a truck driver who was subcontracted by usps to basically so what he did. He delivered ballots from filled out completed ballots anywhere between one hundred thirty to two hundred eighty thousand ballots from new york to pennsylvania and At the time he didn't know what the hell was going on why he was doing he just kind of went along with it but after a while he's he kind of realize that something was amiss. Here something was really wrong. And he spoke up and He's been kind of getting bashed. Ever since but against sworn affidavit sworn testimony as the evidence. he's a truck driver he had the trucks jesse morgan's legit those votes one hundred thirty to two hundred eight thousand. Even if you take one hundred and thirty k those votes should be thrown out. Those votes would give the election to trump alone also four hundred thirty two thousand votes removed from trump. in at least fifteen counties in pennsylvania data scientists from the data integrity group discovered again is links to that as well. Four hundred and thirty two thousand votes just like in michigan when there's just like in michigan and just like in georgia when there was switching those votes in making you know the bind switch over to the trump switch over to buy votes and then just deleting some trump votes all this happened in four hundred thirty two thousand of these votes happen and they can prove it happened in pennsylvania and that alone again would give pennsylvania to trump so moving to arizona and by the way with these three states. Alone trump wins the election. He won. i just showed you evidence and again i'll share these links and everything else you wanna know But three three states alone give the election to trump. he's already won. But let's continual give airasia arizona. Legislature revised ballots to be inspected with legislative officials. Did away with that completely. Didn't fall that law trump when we lost the state by the way by ten thousand votes Between thirty six thousand two hundred and thirty seven thousand illegal immigrants were allowed to vote. The governor does not want to look into this at all either way. It happened in these figures would throw out the vote for biden. Give the election at trump because they approximate about eighty percent of the votes would have gone to biden because these votes of fraudulent. They're made up by the crooked left. Who's cheating the election. And they say minimum about eighty percent of the votes would go to biden so you take eighty percent of thirty six thousand or eighty percent of two hundred thirty seven thousand gives you an overwhelming majority. When trump also data scientists identified a whopping seven hundred and ninety thousand laundered votes. Seven hundred. Nine thousand one hundred seventy five laundry votes that were injected into the system across counties in arizona counties the big flagrant counties ear which had the most votes included pima county pinal county coconino county and miracle county and these were the ones again. Where were you had a lot of that. Vote switching going on a subtraction of trump votes again. These data scientists can prove without a shadow of doubt that these numbers here were fraudulent numbers a mathematician by the name of bobby payton or pinton supplied. Liz harris a director of citizens investigation. We the people as the alliance random sample of three hundred three thousand nine hundred questionable arizona. Voter names check for residency. From delays election in arizona this list represented all five categories of voters republicans democrat independence etc. What they found was shocking. Through much analysis they concluded that hundred and sixty thousand four hundred thousand of these illegal voters of these of these votes. Were legal in arizona. Sar the analysis included voters that were dead verified no longer at at the addresses that they had several with the actual name unknown literally. The name was unknown voter on the ballot registered going along registered at commercial addresses especially churches. Kitchen or churches are a chicken spot. I guess in arizona non. Us citizens who denied voting felons. Who stated that. They can't vote others in jail for years. Out of state residents who don't live arizona registered using schools car lots and sports arenas as addresses on ballots for the election. These are official voters at had these fraudulent addresses sixty five using a z tabulation center and wreck recorder's office at as their as their address. I guess that's a popular one to use vacant. Lots of elderly villagers fifty five plus over an undeveloped properties wilderness addresses on bureau of land management state trust land abandoned homes completely unlivable on boarded up street. Names at just do not exist in arizona records. They used all of these things to make up fraudulent addresses and create fraudulent ballots and between one hundred sixty. Four hundred thousand of these cases exist in arizona again. This number long taking the smallest number one hundred sixty thousand would easily give the the election in arizona to trump one business address by the way received two hundred ballots and another arizona. Address is used by two thousand and twelve people who registered to vote within the first few days the citizens investigation had a couple hundred affidavits. That were that twenty. Twenty votes were not associated with the registered address. Among other things plight found one corner lot had hunt at fifteen hundred registered voters and a lot just next to it had thousand more voters. It's beyond suspicious. That twenty five hundred voters registered to such a small area of land nevada. All the stuff that i just mentioned from all the other states took place in nevada as well. It didn't report because it's three hour or two hours behind eastern time. It didn't report meaningfully. Anything really that night. So i can't say much about that. But but trump lost by thirty three thousand votes and again it had all the same dominion cheating systems and all this stuff going on it also broke election like all the other states did. The election commission requires person inspection of every single one of the ballots. However many of the balances said run through machine not inspected at all nevada also had fifteen thousand votes from vacant lots. It had one thousand. Nine thousand votes from nonvoting nevadans. It had forty two thousand votes. Had eight thousand fake addresses. It had fifteen hundred dead voters and also had five hundred. Plus native americans who were given gift. Cards at televisions electrics and even resort stays in exchange for voting by national congress of american indians. Who partnered up with. George soros is open. Society foundation was partially funded by soros again. This is the guy behind antifa. Black lives matter. He's the guy behind dominion voting systems. He's connected all these nefarious institutions and people around the world mallock brown and he wants nothing else than to create corruption. Create that global society and give it of america. This is the guy who paid off five hundred plus native americans and then lastly there was thirteen thousand. Three hundred. Seventy two fake voter registrations. That included false birthdays casinos as the address and temporary. Rv parks as the address as well again. All these links. I can share with you. I will share with you at a later to actually tomorrow. I'll have all these links in a format for you to view and look over tomorrow. Wisconsin trump was ahead by is the last eight by the way and it's I know there's a ton of information. I gotta get going soon. This is probably a little more than i wanted to do. As far as time goes but wisconsin's state trump was ahead by one hundred. Twenty seven thousand. Two hundred seventy votes eighty two percent in on election. I lost by only twenty thousand. Wisconsin was a huge user of dominion voting and some of the most flagrant offenses of dominion voting systems. Took place in wisconsin wisconsin. Laws are also like legally wisconsin had one of the best cases for why trump won his well. Wisconsin laws are tougher on absentee voting. You need to request an application unlike other states when they count the ballots any absentee ballot without an application is immediately discarded as vote as a vote. It's null and void. They tried to change the laws because of covid. The democrats did they went to the supreme court in wisconsin. Supreme court struck down their attempt to do so but they still went out and solicited votes and sign people up without actually having. These people request the balanced themselves. This isn't total violation of the state laws in wisconsin. These people didn't request applications but still got ballots and these numbers over two hundred and twenty one thousand people mostly democrat of course far exceed the number of biden's victory handing the state that trump these two hundred twenty thousand. Voters should have been thrown out because it violated very plainly. The election law and wisconsin. Wisconsin also failed to keep applications for absentee ballots which is a manner directed by the legislature for the carrying out of this election election. Proximate hundred thousand votes margin of victory was only ten thousand votes and also key. They kept out the gop observers. Like all the other states the tune but in this particular case in wisconsin they took they kept out approximately two hundred thousand votes observers from from watching two hundred thousand votes. This violates clearly again the election law which throws these votes out and trump wins easily. Remember that straight line picture to where they have it and they made like a face out of trump of like that vote the votes going directly straight up for joe biden in the of the night. That stuff is one hundred percent sure. That's it's very legit and Trump one wisconsin bilancic probably by multiple hundreds of thousands of votes. It really wasn't even close. But i mean i put together all this information i'm gonna i'm gonna have the links and all the pictures and all that stuff up tomorrow and it's just clear as day. I want you guys to share this video. Want you guys to Share it with your friends. Shared on facebook Let people know what really happened. All this information is is you can verify. You can look it up. You can look at the links. 'send the videos i send you or have for you to check out tomorrow and verify. Do your own due diligence. But make sure you share this information. Make sure you know who really want an election night on november third it was donald trump. He won by a landslide. He won all six of the states. I one which would have given him well over three hundred Electoral votes and biden win. Had you know maybe like two hundred or so but he he won by a landslide and the evidence is there. You want each state you can just go over the numbers and see. He would've won each state huge by significant amount. Your job now just like it is. My job is to share this information as much as possible. And tell your friends and just call your state. Legislators tonight they might not be around tonight but call him tonight. Give them a try. Email them if if you don't answer and then call them tomorrow morning first thing in the morning because that vote tomorrow is huge. I don't know if it's going to go away tomorrow Legally in in the vote when they actually take the vote. But i do know tomorrow is going to be a huge day. We'll go down in history as a turning point in this fraudulent election and the day i think when when patriots decided to stand up for their country and take their country back and stop the fraud stop the steel and stop by from illegally and unfairly taking the presidency. Donald trump will remain president and it. But it's up to us to fight for him to stay president and it's up to us to share this information and to when he calls us to to answer those calls in stand up and fight for not only him but also america because if we lose this election we'll never get america back and the globalist will start to take over these shutdowns these vaccines these sense of the censorship. You know all this all this crazy shit. That's gone all around the the past nine ten months pass year it will just don't just double down on it. It's not going to go away. If biden gets in it's just gonna get worse. Trust me on that But that's it for today guys. If you enjoy episode make sure you share it with your friends.

Finding Product Market Fit with Matik Founder and CEO, Nikola Mijic
"Nikola meech is the founder and ceo of matic and. here's one piece of advice for anyone entering the startup arena when people ask mckay. What have you learned through this experience. Starting your own company. I would say like how to ruthlessly prioritize because it's your job to be able to decipher what is valid and what is building scaling and maintaining successes every entrepreneur stream. There's one way to get there by consistently meeting. Customer expectations and finding product market fit on this episode of visionaries. Nikola peels back the curtain on how he stepped outside the comfort zone of product management took a chance and launching matic personalization tool designed automate google slides and powerpoint presentations with customized data. Points if you've been in sales you've made one of these in its so i'm looking forward to hearing exactly how he does it. Nikola also explains why customer success is dependent on managing expectations in how data driven insights are not here to kill dashboards but to assist them. It visionaries is created by the team at michigan dot org and brought to you by salesforce platform the number one cloud platform for digital transformation of every experience. Innovate fast empower every employee and skill with confidence from anywhere with a customer at the center of everything you do learn more at salesforce dot com slash platform. Welcome everyone to another episode of. It visionaries and today. We have special guests. Nick meech the ceo and co founder of matic. Nick welcome to the show. And everything's alright. We let every single margus go ahead introduce your company. Tell me what is magic. And what does it do. Yeah so matic is basically what we do at a high level is. We automate the generation of data driven presentations within google slides powerpoint. So we're not trying to play those two systems you can kind of think of us says the layer that sits on top that allows you to connect all the different data sources to kind of automate. Some that repetitive repetitive presentation. So we primarily work with sales teams customer success Farmers and hunters. And you know we automate things like quarterly business reviews renewal dex things that take two three hours because you have to go to all these different data sources to pull the data until tell that story. We want to be there. So the click of a button have that deck voi- generated in its customized to that particular touch point or customer. All right now. I want to ask. Do you have personal experience with this problem. Because i actually do i but i've used other tools so i want to hear about your personal experience using them and understanding you know. What is it that you identified in marketplace. That was missing because i have used some auto report auto generation tools before and I'm curious to hear some of your feedback on what you've experienced because you know my my experiences more than five years old. No worries no worries. Yes i'll kinda take it way back. So i worked at a small startup back in a day called blue knows analytics which was a consumer success software startup so the likes of gain side or to tango and so that was one of the biggest feature like requests that we got from our customers was. Hey myer s arsia. Sandra going to your product taking screenshots. We're going to tableau looker. And we're gonna together these like quarterly business reviews in about that was what five six years ago pretty new at the point Success was evolving. And when i when i joined linked in i joined a like an internal program management team that built internal their narratives and internal tools for our sales team and again. This is a huge pain point for our sales team where they're coming out saying. Hey we spent all this time putting together these data driven near whether it's pitch decks renewal decks qbr's and how automates like with the click of a button. It goes in pulls all the data. Automates it and so that's really kind of were where started had I'd worked on an internal tool at lincoln and thought. Hey this is kinda following me career. And i think there is a massive opportunity to kind of disrupt this and you are. I would say we're kind of a cross section between bi so like the tableau looking. We're not trying to replace dashboards because that's what still have purpose. Exploratory help find those insights but then it's There's always the last month limit. Had i get those insights that i'd find. And how do. I then had it to a document in this case being powerpoint or google slides on a continuous basis. And that's really what we're trying to focus in on similar to like what marquette. Oh did or any of these email automation tools. It with email templates. Were trying to do that with with document. Templates right where you've got a repetitive presentation. that automate and let mattis kind can be that store now. you know. I think the feedback that we got really early on as if this is like trying to replace powerpoint or google. We're not gonna use it right because our reps in our users are familiar with how powerpoint works with how google works wanted to learn necessarily net mutual. Yep so we made the conscious decision to kind of build on top of those systems so that the end user really familiar with how how that works so it sounds like you had hands on experience you were using and leveraging these products and then of course you were in charge of actually making a solution for it while your previous career in your denied that this is a potential marketplace opportunity for for yourself. Give us a high level of what you have experienced. That's missing from these compile outlets. Call document compilers. I don't know what else the call the mom i know. Conga makes them. There's a lot of different companies that make them where it says. Hey i'm gonna take information from different places and build up presentations. Templates proposals quotes all kinds of stuff like that. But you know without being you know. When i think about the problems i saw there without seeing and understanding the problem. I don't know if our audience can understand what you saw the opportunity. And what makes the product unique. So tell me a little bit about what you saw was missing from his existing compiling tools. I think if you look at the. I think the problem exists for two percents right the people that are actually generating the documents or the presentations. That's the end user right like hey sales rep and you're right. There are tools out there that help the end user. Get what they need hundred percent. I think what what was missing was actually on the admin side. How do i connect to different data sources pretty easily without having light you know. Lift a a massive rock or get a ton of resources right and then how do i maintain these templates narratives how to create the dynamic content. I felt like that was what was missing. Is really the on the admin side this ability to scale narrative orc onboard a template really quickly our product. Our platform like i said. Has those two personas as we've built quite a bit on the admin side which was you've if you can't onboard you're particular case automatic connected the different data sources you know create a different dynamic content than the end users not going to get any benefit right so we spent a lot of time. Initially figuring out what are the different types of dynamic content tax charts tables images conditional that our customers are looking for or the market is looking for and then how does that translate over to the end user. So i would definitely say the big thing that we saw early on. We were doing our due diligence before. Starting the company was that there really wasn't his adamant experience to be able to alter these narratives quickly and onboard them. I mean what you're describing is. What exactly what. I experienced like. I said five six years ago. Which was that if we wanted to make adjustments to our compiling tool we actually had to have. We didn't have to have but it was hard enough that there was actually service providers systems integrators. That worked with these compiling tools. They would set it up for you. So you'd have to open up a service order. That person wouldn't have to do like a full discovery. You know analysis. I'm just trying to get a table in my presentation. i gotta go through this process. I know the tables right there. I could see it is like well how you doing it. Today is like literally my guy goes in there and copies and pastes out. That's that's how it's done. So where did you focus your energies. In regards to buildings. application was more on the front. End gooey where it's gonna be like. Hey how do we make this simple. Does it more back in because if you're going to connect and make so that's the power of zappia. Right is the powers appier is. They've made it easy to connect applications so they did all the hard work to figure out how the applications worked so where we're focusing energies like. Is it on the front end interface to make it easy the back end integration to make sure all these data points could come in. How would you. What was your energy. Were both places. Yeah i mean it was a little bit. Little bit of both i would say definitely. The focus was kind of on the on the front end to be able to like help. People create the dynamic content to onboard. The templates at that was the crux of the problem. That we're trying to solve for and so we spent a lot of time there. Obviously we did have to build some connectors initially and you know. A lot of people wanna go directly to their data source database rights and those are pretty easy to build allocate connecting the snowflake connecting my sequel connecting to post grass redshift. Google clear though. They're very easy connector. Bill now you know but then a day we really try to focus in on the workflow on how these admins create the dynamic content amid attitude the different templates amendment also make changes riley we view content especially in this is from the sales standpoint right. And that's what we're starting initially with. We've content like software. You shouldn't be one of those things where let's say you and i are working at a company were csm's when we come up with a qbr. That entire sam team uses. What happens what we hear. Most often is thus been all the time putting the perfect narrative right. No one touches the template for about a year. temple go stale aman. It's like okay. Who wants to put on there okay. Ours to update the qbr template and it shouldn't be that way it should be more iterative. Where hey we we start with this tempe one. Csm's are using it and they come back into albert mana love. Come on tweak this here. I think this data point isn't resonating that much with customer. How about we talked about. Roi this way and you can kind of ab test. And that's what should be like. Software is when you launch software. Thank you stop for year and then a backpack. Yeah it's never done. Yeah it's ever done right. You're constantly getting feedback and we view content especially data driven content. The same way right where you should be making those innovations than hard polyposis initially. Was that the reason why people weren't doing that was because they didn't have the tools to be able to make those changes pretty quickly right to your point earlier. You gotta go get services you gotta get a statement of work done to like. Make any changes on the back now. We wanted to make it really easy for you to be able to like say. Hey you know what. I should be able to make this change pretty quickly. And then let's see what let's see how the field response this right yen for the people. That don't aren't familiar with this process if you don't have some type of document automation or document creation. You're relying on his everyone being just really good dealing with their own cloud templates and of course every. Listen i've worked with hundreds of eighty s. They're all terrible at making dacian again. We gotta give me some love you. We can't we can't we can't character because because you're right because each one is going to want to tailor the presentation just a little bit for the prospect. A good as going to say. Hey listen i need more personalized message. So i need a customer. That's more relatable on customer. That's or experiencing outcome. The prospect is trying to Experience themselves and so they're going back through their information whatever tools they have they're grabbing data out there transporting it in yep effectively. You know someone asked me once. Remember because it was you know working at one hundred person sales organizations like ask me like do you know who's using what template i have no idea no idea right and if you took a look at the best wraps and then you look at the ones are under performing you know. How do you get the same information how you put them on an even playing field. You would learn very quickly i think most. Vp of sales would know this. Is that a lotta times. The tool kit is no longer the same as in one reps using different toolkit than another. Because they've like you said made modifications for what they need. Yeah i mean. I totally gradient and this is what we see within the market right. Is you have a naval man or see sales ops create a template for all these different touch points right and then the in the template they have place holders that say. Hey here go to blow and get active users go here to get xyz metrics. Plop them in here and it kind of tells that story but it's super time intensive ago Make a copy of the template m may go to all the different data sources and just like looking if in today's world if you've got forty fifty sixty in your book of business. Let's say you're talking about one touch point of quarterly business review right. Which is i think. Normal best practice if you ask any. Cs leader sales leader. Like we should be doing some sort of like business review on on a quarterly basis. Often they don't do because of how long it takes right because it's taken me two to three hours i'm gonna pick and choose or care which accounts this month or this quarter get that business review and it's not because i don't want to do it. It's just because. I just don't have the time to be able to do it. Yeah you don't wanna spend your whole day making power points. That's i mean that's just the reality of life right like except echoing exactly. I look our points though i agree. I am the data nerd though. I do love the telling. You like powerpoint Big that was kind of my role at lincoln's like we create these narratives and it's just fun to be able to dig into the data and see like a what is a compelling story that we can make out of a not just data down That's the problem in today's in today's tech world. Is we like to use data often. But it's it's like well so what's so what behind the data. The i am. Get some something that we hope. We are neighboring through. Matic is being able to tell that so what by temple ties in these narratives and scaling them throughout the sales team. Will you know the you hit on a good point about building that great story. Because i used to tell people. I still people time that. I think deals are one at the desk. They're not actually one during a presentation because a good presenter is one thing but then when that person sits down and says i've seen no presentations. Now i gotta figure out which one of these england lean into an ice always say deals. Are one of the desk like win. They're in the desk win. They're with their whoever decision. Makers are quiet. You have no influence on it. That's when you figure out if you were good enough which of course you don't wanna find out after the fact that you weren't good enough exactly so i always one ask founders. Who are going into businesses. That i would call crowded right. There's other products here in this space. That do this kind of thing. You have a unique spin on it. How about told me about. I know you're still in early stages but talk about getting that first wave of customers to give you a shot. What was that like. I mean it definitely is hard. I think anytime you go into to be at. This is banner first venture for time doing a startup. there's a there's a big learning curve. I don't come from a sales background. And what i've learned. Is that like you need to become like you are selling selling selling nonstop and yeah you better cell. It was a new muscle to flex. Because i've always come from an analytics or product. My background is product in analytics. And it's just different. Yes you are selling. But you're selling internally i think selling internally the little bit different than selling externally so luckily we the way that we approach to is. We looked at folks that we had in our network and we mostly targeted cs in account management. I because i knew from my blue nose days at that was like a big pain point and we kept hearing in research and you know we went out to this folks on the k kinda worth thinking about building. Here's some high level mocks and we really tried to bring them along on the journey. I found that when you did that. Really resonated with people and they make them feel kate. They're solving this problem with you right and not just like you're not looking them as a as a customer beta customer. They're actually kind of part of matic in part of this journey so we've out a few customers that were willing to take a bet on us and honestly super grateful one of those on boy. They shot them. They were early adopter and you know they were located. Is the big problem within our cs oregon. And let's see how we can automate it and they've just been a great partner along the way. So what was that. Like when you got that first piece of feedback. Because i have yet to meet the developer who on let's say v. one version. Whatever you wanna call it where the customer was like. This is it. It's usually usually gets a little bit resistance and then you go and keep iterating from there. What was that like that. I experiencing a customer use it. Yeah i mean it was. It was kind of surreal right. Because you think about this. You of think about At he even mentioned is that you can't you. Don't let if you are nervous if you wait until the product is perfect than you're too late right under. The boat has left the yard right. And i tend to agree like when we were shipping the product it was like it wasn't perfect but the feedback we got was ultimately like very very positive right. There's obviously things that that we work on or button up one hundred percent but at the end users were were really loving also admin side styling. We're getting a lot of positive feedback. Gay this is saving my time now. Because i'm not having do ad hoc analysis for The wraps or do ad hoc queries. I i can just scale within matic. I will admit that the thing that i've learned the most throughout this experience prioritization. A that is probably the number one skill when people ask mckay. What have you learned through this through this experience. Starting your own company. I would say like how to ruthlessly prioritize because you're users and your customers and prospects are gonna want the world right and it's your job to be able to decipher what is valid. And what is i get it. But maybe that's just because that's the way you've always done and that's just habit that's a big little. Let's let's push back on that habit and beckham placing cnc. There's a better way to be able to do this. That's what happens to a lot of what you just described. That's problems with a lot of first time founders. That are technical background. Is that the kind of you kind of catered towards the loudest voice here. In often times a loud voice wanted to make what they already have which is weird. Like it's a common thing people ask you they. They kind of like hand. Do this is how i do things today. Can you match that. It's like wait a second. I thought you were investing in innovation to do something differently. Easier something different right and they try to pull you into back to like. This is what i know. And i think that's where the selling comes in. Like you have to be able to look at ourselves like yes. We're not necessarily creating a net new category. But i feel like we are creating subcategory right and part of that becomes education. You're trying to educate your prospects in your customers on a new way of doing things right and you have to sell them on that vision. You have to sell the mess. Like this is better than their current status quo and it is hardly In some cases you have to say no and you have to be ruthless in being able to say no because you have a small amount of resources and you gotta take bets on what you think is going to be applicable to the masses instead of just like oh this one customers paying me. You know fifty k. year. We know you're gonna have to push back. Sometimes right and i think that that prioritization is what i think has gotten us to where we're at today and hopefully it will continue the success moving forward. Tell me how you go about prioritizing unlike to hear like some of your decision factors of you put in before you say like what do you say yes to what he say. This can wait to you. Know this is something that linked in top really. While on the lens of two axes one is like level of effort. Right in the other is the size of prize at the impact says apprised like that. Yeah you wanna like you wanna work on things that are low level of effort but are gonna yael the highs of prize or high impact right and that's kind of magic quadrant. And so you know. When i get into the into monday mornings and i look at That's what i look at all the tasks and then circe okay. What are the things. That are low effort Give highs prize and there going to be times where you do need to. You know you're not all the tasks that you prioritize aren't going to be in that magic quadrant where the yield both of those are tangerine. After work on things that are a little bit more trivial. But they do go a long way especially when it comes to software. I always tell my deft might Offers buggy of there is a lot of work arounds. Yeah i'd get it. There is a workaround but it's death by a thousand cuts you know if there's too many worked around that it just becomes a bad experience for the end user and we wanna limit those. Yeah i mean you kind of hit it right there. I'm going to ask you some more questions about that. Product decision making that you make as you said you mentioned you mentioned earlier that you have a based background you know. How do you go about tackling product decisions. You mentioned before the user experience because we know that when it comes to software today because there's an abundance of choice there's basically no tolerance for bad experience right. Because i can just go to something else that's probably comparable or at least give it a shot and if i'm giving it a shot that means i'm considering somebody else and i'm considering someone else that means i'm not considering anymore right. So how do you. How do you go about that. Because that's been a constant theme that we've understood throughout throughout the course of the show is technical leads you know they might not be able to foresee the user experience and of the user experience leads product. Leads are sometimes have challenges conveying like why. This is important So how do you go about measuring whether it's gonna be a good experience or not when you have. Maybe someone on the technical side who might be in disagreement or something. We're like well the feature works as or whatever. The common technical pushbacks lucky. Luckily i would say my co-founder not my co-founder Easy unicorn he's he's the the cto on the technical side. He's been kinda building with team but he also really understands the business problem. And i always found that you know talk to the end user. Not just you but like bring some of your team to the user research session so they hear firsthand what your customers are telling you. I think that is a pm need to do. More of is is usually. They're the ones who need the research with added marketing campaign back to the engineers and engineers are saying like was that really the case. Should we be doing this. And it's Why don't you come with me. Am i let let me bring you on this journey and you can hear firsthand what customers are telling me your prospects for telling your our end users are telling me right so and i found. That's very helpful. Way to get everybody on the same page so they actually see the pain and it's not just coming from you right. It's actually coming from the people that are using products. That's definitely one of the the big ways i think help. And then the other is data right like you gotta look. Hey look at how our data's trending right like we launched. This feature. people aren't using it. People are using right like at the end of the day. That's a black and white. And so you want to be able to share that data on a consistent basis with with your entire organization to see like a. Did we hit you know the the we hit a home run here or do we need extra kind of go back and revisit what we what we get originally so talk to me about where you are today are currently you know we did a little homework. We saw that you raised around a seed round back in two thousand nineteen. What is the business whereas attracting where it's trajectory right now for you. Yeah so we had. I mean right. Now we are seven full-time just made an offer over the weekend. That just got accepted so be eight. Were hiring for about five. More refined open rex right now. Hiring across account management engineering marketing as well so probably going to be about twelve taught. Thirteen hopefully By june july. That's also another recruiting. You're not just doing sales. That's another thing that. I realized that being a first time founders is the recruiting aspect is super super important that you spend a lot of time trying to recruit top talent so we've had a great start to twenty one. We've almost doubled air artists in the first in the first quarter. We did all of last year. So we're definitely seeing a lot of adoption within our customer base within the market. And now i think it's just building the eagles you need to build on the product that we have while the same time i think molding and building this team that i think will continue to find success in the future. So how about for yourself because you started as a product guy you know you're working in product you're developing products for linked in you bring this product a life outside of lincoln as manic. You're building building building building. But your hat starts to change your selling selling selling now. You're recruiting recruiting recruiting. How much time are you spending inside. A product development engineering versus. Let's say recruiting and sales because it sounds like you. Have a very robust pipeline. Your i said you're doubled sales so i'm assuming that you are basically vp of sales. Right now i just hired. I just hired had a sale. I'm really really. I'm really really excited. Aren't so i can kinda push some of this work after her But yeah i mean it is hard like i try to stay pretty close product because that is a passion of mine and i enjoy like i said working with our team and kind of bringing that but at the end of the day yes any any founder. This early on. it's just not reality. You are gonna have your hand in a lot of cookie jars so to speak right. You're going to be helping with marketing. You're going to be helping with onboard in a year and a half with support. You're gonna help with recruiting. I would say the number one priority right now is just like attracting top talent right so we feel like the product isn't a good place. We've got some great you know. Customers pipeline is looking good. Now just how do we built. This team You know instead it up for success. I think that's probably a one of my number. One priority is in the coming quarters. So how are you looking at recruiting today because one of the things. That's you know we already know The demand for talent is the. It's it's unending right. We also know that you're in startup mode. Which means you know. I'm just going to go ahead and guess that you can't pay what the big boys pay or the big the big coast pay big girls. You can call them whatever right. Big companies have big wallets and talent and now you know so someone told us before the big challenge will remote work is like now the access to talent. Is you know they hire anybody anywhere. Yeah and it's just a it's a battlefield right. So how are you. How are you going your strategy for attracting talent specifically tactile. Because that's that seems to be one of the hardest to get although as ceo. You now know talent unique position positions actually quite hard like top mark out top sales down. They're not cheap either. I mean yeah you are taking a restraining startup right and startup. Most likely he's not going to be able to pay you what you're making it. Salesforce linked in any of the big tech companies. But i think what started can give. You is atonomy and ownership right. You aren't just a small cog in the machine here. We're hiring you because we don't have the skill set that you have right or we don't have the time to want you to fully own this part of the of the org and i think a lot of people do look for that especially if you have been in a company like salesforce for a really long time and you've just kinda okay go through the okay ours. You go through things and it's a great as able to contribute this. What was your real impact. Whereas i think highlighting that impact at a startup is much much easier. And i think it's a way more quantifiable and you see seat on a day-to-day basis right. Everything that you do has a material impact trivial a immaterial impact on the business that i think it's tough to explain to to someone. Tell you unless you've actually done it. But the feeling that you get it's just it's unbelievable you know and i was kind of what i'm trying to recruit people are selling like a you know we are like family cliche. Everyone says that. But i spend more time. I'm gonna spend more time with you than i spent with with my wife right so i say we want to build a team where you know. We're learning from one another and know growing together right. Not just not just from a number standpoint from business but you're growing in your learning i can tell you from experience you will learn way more at a small startup during wear multiple hats. You're gonna task in. It's okay to fail. You know. I i understand that. You're you're gonna make some bets and you will fail. That's okay right. That's part of the journey. But you will learn more than just going through your you know working at a at a bigger company or you're focusing on one sliver of the peace and you don't have that ability to test as much because it has to work right. Yeah the one i have. Women friends went from a project management person at a startup to win the big. They're called they're like but they're only hospitals like epoch systems turner there's a couple of Yeah like ehr's talking about ehr's. I'm not going to name the company that she went to but she did make a comment. Her whole project will be you know. Our whole quarterly project will be what she would do in a at a startup and and it's not even clearly doesn't matter like i don't know i mean look at like bruno's analytics was there for. I was in early employees of going. The first five higher they're raised a lot wasn't a great success to be totally honest but it was the best experience on my resume because i learned so much throughout the process i got i i was doing a little bit of product in lebanon analytics. Able go to a lot of sales meetings able to see like how the county executives in iraq the customers how the founders enacted the customers am bat. That experience was invaluable. I would say really helped me with matic. Riley lincoln top good. Looks like okay like once you get to scale what is good look like but Working balloon was even though it wasn't a financial success. It was by far the best experience in outlined the most during that. How's it impacted you in your ability to evaluate talent because that's one of the things that a lot of times you know. Jason lumpkin talks about it a lot. Because he's a big voice in sas how he talks about how like when you're a startup and you hire a Let's say big company person a lot of times. It doesn't fit in the he. He named some reasons. Why culturally or skill wise. How does that impact it. Because you've worked at now a big tech firm and you've also worked at startups now. You're a startup. ceo what do you look for. I guess in talent while actually. Before that though i think the reason why people coming from a bigger company to small company doesn't usually work is because the people were making the hiring decisions weren't transparent as he was all the time Right like you're hiring ahead of head of marketing to come join your startup and you don't set the expectations like your team of one right now. What's my budget. You don't have on your hands. What happens at yeah exactly. Yeah or k. You're gonna you're gonna manage five people know like you got to set the expectation from the get. Go that this is different. You're not going to have the budget you're not gonna have. You're not going to be managing a team right away and i think that is the biggest mistake that founders make. Where's my video guy. We don't have a video guy like oh you can't do video. I thought you could do. I think that's the biggest mistake that founders make. When they're recruiting is they're just not transparent honest what the role really entails right. If you think about it it's you spend all this time recruiting this individual and you don't want them to leave after six months right because then you you not only spent the time now you gotta go back into the market. Try to replace them and you got to retrain somebody net so just be up front with them and say hey. This is the expectation. These are your roles and responsibilities and it will be ambiguous. I don't know twelve months from now. I think this is what's going to happen. But that's part of the job right like we're going to of figure this out together and so i always look. I always let people know that. There's ambiguously with joining startup and you need to be comfortable with it's okay. There is a little bit attention. And it makes you. You have some discomfort. But that's just the way startups work. There's gonna be ambiguously. So i always try to lead with transparency. Letting them know exactly what they're getting themselves into and then letting them make the decision i want you to ultimately joined because you feel like this is the best decision for you to make right. I don't want to force you or persuade you to make a decision and then six months from now you realize that this wasn't a good fit right from the onset so i think you have to be honest and you gotta let them make the decision. Not you made the decision for them. That's awesome stuff. Well nick it is now time for the lightning round the lightning rounds brought to you by the salesforce platform the number one cloud platform for digital transformation of air experienced.

It got to the point. Where william hill sportsbook will no longer take bets at that scale. Really ten thousand people. 'cause like hometown people putting a hundred bucks on it putting thousand bucks on it like at the beginning of the season and they won so awesome. So have you ever been to a professional game. I have I've been review. What was that. Experience like a So what was it. Probably like five six years ago. My twin brother and do my best friends. We did a trip last minute. Trip in april two to europe and really solid all for some reason in ten ten day window. All the big games are happening so we went to haul in the netherlands. We saw like a rivalry game. There we went to in solitude big games there and then we went to germany and this was probably my favorite my brother and i when we when we were in germany dortmund fan for for the zeno in brother was buying mean it fan and those back in the day were always wanted to do and even now today they're back wanted to and so there was a picture of my brother and i won't relocate in our respective their jerseys and then we were able to kinda go watch the darby watch the game in in munich and i had members Akzo in twenty years later. It's like a fun experience last. Probably the best game that i've been through. That fear was unbelievable. I mean to. The status gives me goosebumps time. I think about it all right. Do that is pretty cool recreating that like a little childhood to turn to a magical like adult moment exactly last question for us you just kind of alluded to it. You are a twin. Do you in. Your twin brother have weird like connection where he gets hurt. You get hurt. Saint place no method. That's ever happened.

And in today's episode Oppy sharing with you eight breathing technique, breathing techniques are one of the fastest and easiest ways to instantly, calm your mind and body. And this is a simple breathing technique. And it will help you to feel refreshed and renewed. In fact, if you do yoga, which I know many of you do yoga on a regular basis. This is what is referred to as. Belly breath breathing with your belly rather than breathing. Shallowly higher up in your lungs, if you're breathing shallowly, you feel your chest rise and fall as you breathe. When you give yourself a full dia for Matic breath, you allow yourself to tap into the small blood vessels that are in the lower part of your lungs and these vessels are important because they carry oxygen to the rest of your body to all your body cells. So if you're breathing shallowly, you're not allowing your body. It's full dose of oxygen. In fact, win you breathe. Shallowly? A creates stress and anxiety in your body. So you're breathing Shelley. You may actually be causing yourself to experience stress. So as you Bree you want to make sure that as you inhale you allow your Adam to rise upward, and as you ex hail you allow your Adam to sink back downward. So you will visually see your abdomen rise upward with each inhale. And you will see it cincpac downward with each ex hail. You might wanna place your hand on your abdomen. As you do this breathing technique. Now, I will warn you that. If you're not accustomed to giving yourself a full belly breath, you can feel a little lightheaded. And I remember when I was teaching some super athletes this breathing technique and one person who was a super fit triathlete had to stop this breathing technique and resume her normal breath because giving herself a full dose of oxygen to potent for her. So your body may not be used to such a full dose of oxygen. And so just resume your natural breath. If you feel a little faint or lightheaded, you may even want to lay down as you do. This breed. Ding technique. So as you place your hand on your abdomen with each inhale. You'll feel your belly rise upward with Egypt's hail. You'll feel it cincpac downward.

And it's it's been great but then people start calling me saying he kind of talking on the phone of talk you. Can you help me some stuff as yeah. I guess again i really. That was my answer. What new big master plant not really Forget it people say master plan. I just went with what worked. Okay and little by little ten twenty thousand hours later. Got some experience in this game right. This started a long time ago. But you know what i know. I know that maybe you want something different in life than maybe what you have. I know different and ambiguous kind of thing.

You know why you want your mission once you can specifically paint a picture. No one is going to be. You'll go after it and you will always happens. So in the years of helping with people Reach their dreams. Kind of what i do I have learned some things here. They are for most of us living certainly here in america. Our lives are pretty good. Yeah they probably could be. Maybe more exciting. Yeah you could probably make a little bit more money. That'd be cool wouldn't it. Yeah maybe your relationships could sparkle just a little bit more. Maybe still have also learned that people are frozen in fear of what they might lose when they're trying to transform into something. Maybe you're not just going to say motivated today. I don't know what it is but still transformation is coming somewhere. It always does. It may be from fear that you won't get what you want. That's always a scary one. What if it doesn't work out right. Is it possible that you're living in a I think the most dangerous went on the planet a someday maybe mindset. My wife does that. I wanna do some. Well figure it'll happen in time. Scariest thing i could ever hear. It will happen in time. No let's make it happen so in the business world. I think things are a little more clear. I spend probably eighty percent of my time. Maybe more than that working with business owners emotionally to make sure they stay in the game plus on the strategy actually build their business. Do that mostly throughout the course of my week. If you want to succeed is pretty simple. You offer something to your customer. Something they want something they need and give them a solution right in florida. Air conditioning goes out in july. Just tell me you can fix it. You got my business fast. It's simple math. The customer will take you up on your offer. And your business will thrive or they won't notice your business and your competition will Will thrive so your personal life is kinda the same way. So here's the thing recognize whenever is holding you back even if the only thing that you recognize you're holding yourself back or something is holding you back. Even that's all you have is recognized that as a problem. It's no it's not a challenge. Even tony robbins. Who years ago said everything's challenge eventually came around. He said something stupid problems. They are something that just problems gotta deal with them. Okay so you got a problem. You got to challenge and you need a solution. If you don't do that you're gonna stay forever and frustratingly in that someday maybe mindset. But you've got to recognize and that's where it begins. Its like a business you recognize. There's a problem you can sell for your customer. And they need a solution. Same thing for you right. But if i had a magical question that i could ask you if you and i were on zoom call we are chatting and you were just trying to figure it out you got with me on the phone you said i hope scott help figure things out pretty quick on the sixty minute session. I've got we can do that. I can and i have a secret weapon thing. So i used as well because you're smart. You're taking action items. You too busy paying attention to what i'm saying and writing it down so this is what i'll do when i got off the phone. I'm not gonna listen to you right now. Stop it. Listen to what i'm saying right now. If you'll accept the answer i give you. It will transform your life but you gotta accept it some. I answered your answer. So i asked this client. She was going to confuse if i could wave a magic wand and transform your life into exactly what you wanted what would it look like. I know that sounds like one of those questions. Oh my god. If i leave a magic wand transfer. We live in exactly what you wanted. What would it look like. But then he just sat there and kept my mouth shut. Which is hard for me to do as you might. Well imagine i listened. Things are silent until the floodgates information opened the picture was painted and she could see the future is still quiet but being that we ought to zoom call. I could see that she went deep breath. She relaxed if you set. Thanks getting me to admit what. I finally want thinking about it for years. I was afraid to say it out loud and it feels good. It's always something. it feels. Good when you release the dream locked them cya now you have to just accept that you want it and get the work making it real. And that's the easy part because now you should be so excited you can't hold yourself back right. Yeah just say right yes. It's that simple. And get the motivation to move dot com.

They are simply to help you transition from one state to the next. So before you set down to meditate and listen to this podcast episode. I imagine you were going about your day thinking of all kinds of things maybe you woke up in the morning and. You're getting ready for your day or you're ending your day. So you may have some things on your mind. It can be a little challenging to sit down and instantly be able to immerse yourself in stillness. And so the meditation techniques allow you that space to relax your mind and body to go from your busy state of tippety to a state of stillness. I should meditate even longtime meditators use meditation techniques to transition to that inner stillness. And I layer my techniques every time I meditate, I always do a breathing technique and after mation a moot Tra I sometimes focus on Chuck. Gra or I'll visualize something. So the techniques. Can be layered together beautifully to help you focus your mind and get ready to meditate. And remember that while you're meditating, if your mind wanders, which it will even with longtime meditators. The meditation techniques are away for you too. Refocus? So that you can go back into that inner stillness, and you usually have to do this a few times when you meditate where you're meditating beautifully. And then you might notice a twitch here and there in your body or your mind starts to wander. And so when you focus on technique, it brings you back into that state of inner stillness, so you will be layering the different techniques today, I wanna share with you a little more insight in to what it's like to live.

The $2.7 Billion Case Against Fox News
"You have the filing toronto second. It's rather heavy so yeah. How many pages is it. It's two hundred and eighty pages. And why would you mind reading me. The beginning the earth is round. Two plus two equals four. Joe biden and kamala harris on the twenty twenty election for president and vice president of the united states. The election was stolen rigged or fixed. He's are facts. they are demonstrable and irrefutable. Defendants have always known these facts. They knew joe biden and kamala harris won the twenty twenty. us election. They knew the election was stolen. They knew the election was not rigged or fixed. They knew these truths just as they knew. The earth is round. And two plus two equals. Four defendants did that. Want joe biden and kamala harris to win the election. They wanted president. Donald trump and vice president mike pence to win reelection defendants were disappointed. Defendants decided to tell people that the election was stolen. From president trump and vice president pence defendants had an obvious problem with their story they needed a villain defendants decided to make smart maddock the villain in their story having invented their story and created their villain descendants set about spreading the word night after night publication after publication fax news reached out to its millions of viewers and readers around the world with the story joe biden and kamala harris did not win the two thousand and twenty election smart. Maddox stole the election for them from the new york times. I'm michael borrow this. Is the daily smart medic. An election software company has juice filed a defamation lawsuit against fox news over false claims spread by the network about the company's role in the twenty twenty election. The move follows a similar lawsuit by another election. Software company dominion together. The lawsuits are raising the possibility that the courts might be one of the few remaining ways to confront the country's crisis of disinformation today. My colleague media columnist. Ben smith speaks with smart maddox. Ceo and the loyal bringing the case. It's friday february fifth. Where are you now antonia. Boca raton florida. Back in florida. Back back where it all began. Yeah exactly we still are a good place to start this story as an early. Two thousand and florida where antonio mojica had just moved from venezuela. Okay and how'd you land in boca just to begin. He was a software engineer. And you just founded a digital security company smart matic mostly working with banks bought. You know something happened. That putin's in the path of elections. I can but this was florida in two thousand and so a few months. And he had a front row seat to the incredible debacle that was bush gore. And we just couldn't believe you know that the most powerful country on earth deed and know how to count its votes and and it was at that time that actually my co-founder said why don't we apply or security tag to design a voting solution and it seemed like a good idea and by two thousand and five we were already the largest provider of voting technology in the world. Okay so let's. Let's fast forward to say october of two thousand twenty. Give me a thumbnail sketch of your business. Where where your biggest elections where your biggest customers. Well i mean we. We have costumer seen twenty-five countries around the world the largest customers we have. I would say the largest is the philippines. It's it's a pretty large countries. Seven thousand nine hundred sixty five million voters. We provide all the technology and support services for the election for the entire country and we provide results in a matter of hours. Sporadic has become the multinational multi-million dollar company of antonio's dreams and then comes last november And so tell me when when you first hear the name. Smart matic pop up in the discussion of the election. It was i. Forget the exact date for the new york. City mayor and president trump's personal attorney would usually is working to establish how many illegal votes were cast and he joins right now. You know it was. It was kinda fortify days after the election. The first time that i think good morning. It was giuliani. That you know said something way beyond what people think including a very very Dangerous of foreign company. I mean completely unexpected. The software that they use is done by a company called smart matic. The gist of these allegations was the dominion. The company whose voting machines were actually used in some swing states like georgia was using smart battery software and that software was flipping votes from donald trump to joe biden and this company has tried and true message for fixing elections ten downed up in that idea. Was this idea that venezuela which is where antonio's from which was one of his first customers was somehow part of these shady dealings the company that was founded by s and by shahbaz is to to allies still own own it. It's been used to cheat in elections in south america. Of course one thing you'd never want to see is fox news with big-screen saying you know these are the people you gotta remember that pattern that you have there. We have evidence that. That's the same pattern smart matic using other elections in which they were disqualified. And see my name there. Being you know basically pointed at the criminal this whole thing has to be investigated as a national security matter. When that happened to very honest with you. I i thought okay. This is just kind of a mistake or confusion that someone has because this one guy saying one thing one time and that is such a big fantasy and so of rages that you know these. These will have no legs. This has to be examined maria beyond this election. Which i believe we'll get overturned but no such luck. Wow all right. We're going to be following your investigation. Thank you very much for breaking news and this morning. Didn't stop with giuliani sydney. Thanks very much for being here. We appreciate your time this morning. I wanna get right into it. We just heard about the software made by smart matic from rudy sydney powell. One of the men lawyers bringing court cases on behalf of the trump campaign also found to hold on fox for her allegations about smart matic. We have so much evidence. I feel like it's coming in through a fire hose. President trump won by not just hundreds of thousands of millions of hits that were shifted by this software that was designed expressly for that purpose in the followed by being declared the president elect. These allegations just kept exploding. All over fox is one huge huge criminal conspiracy that should be investigated by military intelligence for its national security implications and we're being spread not just by guests. Let julianne powell welcome back. The election results in several battleground states continued to be under intense focus as allegations of voter fraud or being investigated by fox anchors themselves to the widespread irregularities anomalies and cheating and the presidential election president trump's legal team says potentially rig voting machines demand a national security investigation. You know after a few days was clear that these was gonna. We're gonna turn into something really big. The conspiracy theories spread all over right wing media to places like newsmax and one american news network. The name smart matic became synonymous with the notion of a stolen election. One source says that the key point to understand is that this smart matic system has a back door that allows the votes to be mirrored and monitored allowing an intervening party a real time understanding of how many votes will be needed to gain electoral advantage. Are you saying the states that use that software did that well. I know i can prove that. They did it in michigan. But here's the real kicker now just to be clear. Did you have any business in georgia this year. Sierra not only these year. i've never had any business georgia. They they did it absolutely in phoenix arizona. How about eric arizona. No chiro they did it in big cities where they have corrupt machines that will protect them. Meaning pennsylvania philadelphia and pittsburgh pennsylvania. We had no business in any of a swing states or they you know they contested states. Actually we didn't have any business in the us outside of la county neither directly or indirectly. That's what's so particularly crazy about this aside from providing software to la county for its elections. Smart matic played no other role in the twenty twenty election. It's total nonsense but the consequences have been very real. There were the death threats which bina sadly were familiar with that piece me off the most. And then there's the money was what was for you sort of the darkest moment of this little guy to a certain degree is still is of course. Darkest moment is taught is the moment that you started to recognize that the damage is being done is probably impossible to recover from on when you have basically one hundred percent of your costumers around the world and prospects around the world panicking in basically everybody that works with you either telling you they don't wanna see you anymore. Some of them say look. We've we would love to work with you but you know you're toxic. We don't want the noise or asking for a million explanations right because as they're seeing these on fox news in the in women. What's the can of the most powerful and far reaching news channel in the world It's very hard to know if it's going to completely wipe us out or if he's gonna hit very hard and i don't know how long it would take assuming we survive. Hollywood take us to to rebuild. It's hard to say so definitely. You know what we were expecting to be a magnificent business for the next decade and it doesn't look that way anymore so just to the degree you can quantify it. How big financial to do take. How much did this has. This cost you so far. Well i mean we have. We had ludar pipeline for the next five years and you know are different forecast for the next five years and what with thaad was the most accurate forecast and then how we feel that fork is being affected and then looked at all the of course revenue that we think that we're going to lose because of this and they'll feel confident we're going to lose because of this of course that translates into las profit and that's how we reach the the two point seven billion Two point seven billion dollars. That's a lot of money. And that's how much decided to sue fox news for In twenty twenty one mental health is finally cool but therapy doesn't have to be sitting around just talking about feelings.

Cooking has you covered with recipes advice and inspiration for any occasion. Yeah so eric tell me. When did you first just become aware of these allegations. Being made against far matic had heard the allegations about smart. Maddox just from watching tv But i got contacted by smart. Maddox a little after thanksgiving and they brought this to my attention and asked me to look into it and when they first called me it was obviously a very somber conversation eric. Connelly's a lawyer in chicago and san antonio decided to take action against fox news eric. Su he reached out to. And so after i spoke with them for about an hour. I spend another hour just watching the news. Clips the facts broadcasts to get my head around it and by the end of that was very apparent to me that there had been a campaign and that if what they were saying wasn't true. That was one of the biggest disinformation campaigns. I'd ever seen now. Why just go after fox. There's other media outlets notably newsmax owen. Who have been just as aggressive about the stuff so we're still investigating and analyzing who bring our lawsuits against. I think you can tell simply by the length of the complaint that we filed that they take a long time to put together and we do a lot of due diligence before we file them and so it is one step at a time and certainly when we look at who had a microphone that could reach millions of people in the united states and billions of people across the world with this information. It's facts you're not just going after them because they have deeper pockets and you don't want to own a small cable network. Facts has the biggest microphone. They have the biggest platform and because of that they can do the most damage and now in in your own career. I mean had you been. Is this something that is interested you this kind of political this information were you looking for a case like this. I was not looking for a case like this. You know i. I had a defamation case several years ago for a company based in south dakota and that was the first time. I've ever done a defamation case before and it happened to be the largest defamation case that i'd ever been filed eric is not fully saying here is that there's a reason he was chosen for this job in two thousand seventeen. He and his partner when the largest settlement in the history of american media definition and now a startling. Abc news investigation. A whistle blower has come forward to tell consumers about the ground beef. A lot of us by at the supermarket represented a beef production company whose product was described. Rather unappetising leib. Abc news as pink slime hang slob climbing slime. We're talking about lean finely textured beef it's the component in ground meat may just ninety miles north in sioux city. You can actually trace a pretty clear line from there to here. Going after the red slime the disinformation in some cases outright lies coming from the conservative media world. At a moment when it's pretty unclear how to stop that slime and as the consequences of its spread or becoming more and more clear and feeling more and more dangerous to american democracy. Eric's approach to making it. Stop to make. It hurt very badly financially for the people spreading it the way you can sometimes send a message is with damages and there are occasions where a company like smart has been damaged so much that the recovery that they are entitled to read siv is significant even for a company as big as facts and i think that sends a message and hopefully people don't want to be the next facts so in that way eric says this lawsuit is very tangible. Way of combating. Disinformation a problem which can feel so impossible. You know smart. Matic doesn't have the microphone. That facts has. They can't turn out an put somebody on the air and immediately reach hundreds of millions of people. But what they can do is they can file a lawsuit like this. That is an opportunity for smart. Maddox to correct the record in a fair way in a way that they can't do any where else here's where i need to show my own car. It's a bit until about a year ago. Iran buzzfeed news and in that role actually was known for a pretty aggressive belief. In the media's right to publish in particular. I decided to publish the steele dossier when traditional news outlets would not the thirty five page document prepared by a former british spy alleges the trump campaign colluded with the russians and includes uncorroborated salacious allegations about trump himself. I knew it had unconfirmed and even false information data and we made that clear when we published it ben. You made the call when this happened. Do you have any regrets about publishing this entire document. But i also thought the public had a right to see it. The default now is if you want your to trust you you you don't just. Our job is not to keep them primarily to be gatekeepers to decide what to suppress and keep from our audience. It's primarily to share with our audience. What we've got major media and politicians intelligence officials is. Cnn had even reported that it existed and had been briefed to two presidents of the united states. The president the president elect the american people. Were basically the only ones who hadn't seen it well exactly one year ago tonight tonight. Buzzfeed released the trump dossier to the public. Even though they couldn't verify any of its contents some of which were scandalous and salacious. We blasted for him at the time now. They're getting shooed and sued over that decision. By people mentioned the dossier. Like most editors i've been on the receiving end of a number of defamation threats lawsuits and so in general have been highly skeptical on alarmed by lawsuits. The try to stop me organizations from getting information out into the world. But i have to confess. The events of the past. Few years have started to shake my conviction a bit as i've washed misinformation run rampant and system after system fail. I found myself hesitantly. Open to the idea that eric may be on to something that the courts may be one of the few tools available. But i've still really wary if the applications. Now i have to say you know as you probably know i mean i've spent my career as a reporter and occasionally as a defendant in these cases and the way companies. Defamation law makes me nervous if you look at the metoo movement a lot of stories were kept silent because of you know because of legal threats. And i worry that maybe journalists who think that fox news was doing crazy stuff. Cheerleader this case only to see titan defamation laws suppress all sorts of true stories we should we be worried about that. I don't think any reporter. That does his or her job and pays attention to the facts and reports. What they believed to be true has anything to worry about with a case like this. This is a case where we are alleging. A was simply fabricated. And when you fabricate a story and caused great damage then you should be worried about that. But i don't think that's something that most responsible journalists do. I certainly agree with you on that. But that huge verdict you want against abc news was not a you didn't allege kind of vast conspiracy to make something up from scratch. I think alleged a series of errors that were allegedly damaging to your clients. And that's the kind of thing that makes me nervous that a news operation is crippled over allegedly misrepresenting some beef processing presses. Aren't these all part of the same fabric. The burden of proof on a plaintiff bringing a defamation cases very high and so the courts have provided a lot of protection for. It's the responsible journalists anything to worry about. They're not gonna ultimately lose the ones who are transgressing. Your norms transgressing. Your responsibilities are the ones that are in the crosshairs for these types of losses. There's already some evidence to be found. These lawsuits are having a real impact long before they've come close to being decided fox style back. Its claims about the election late last year after threats from smart mattock and this week a video went viral. Discuss is being founder and ceo of my pillow and the author of the book. What are the odds. Mike lyndale mike. Thank you so much for joining us and welcome. So what what. What happened with your twitter account and the company page it showed. The ceo of a company called my pillow. In an appearance on newsmax. He'd been invited to come on to discuss. Cancel culture d platforming. He'd just been kicked off twitter for spreading false claims about election fraud over because we have all the election machines real fruit. And then i took of my i got. My finale. wanted to talk about was his belief in the fraud itself. Thank you very much vitamin mike. You're talking about machines that we're newsmax not been able to verify any of those kinds of allegations. We clearly terrified newsmax anchor literally pulled out a document. We read you something there. While there were clear evidence of began reading what was obviously a corporate statement. They've been given the election results in every state were certified and newsmax accepts the results of legal and final language to make very clear that this news organization does not believe fraud occurred after weeks. Of course of saying it did and weeks of saying smart maddock was part of that. You're raking mike goes. Did you see that clip of the ceo of my pillow on newsmax. Getting kind of cut off to point where one of the hosts walks away as he tries to spread election misinformation. What did you make. I saw newsmax reacting to the fact that they had received a retraction demand letter from smart maddox and trying to take a stuff to make sure that they don't make the situation any worse and thank you again for taking the time. What will obviously be following. The songkhla slept all right. Thanks a lot of us are following this closely wandering all reservations whether this lawsuit could dump down some of the insanity that sometimes seems like it's overrun american politics. But they're real limits to what lawsuits can do. There's another one making. Its way through the courts right now. This one against alex jones the info wars founder. The plaintiffs are the parents of children murdered at sandy hook who've already forced jones to acknowledge their kids really did die that it wasn't theater as he had clammed. But that doesn't make unlike jones vanish. If you were watching the insurrection of the capital last month he was with his bullhorn telling the crowd quote. We won this election as long as you're not defaming a person or a company and there's no law against line on thursday afternoon in a statement to the times fox news responded to the lawsuit from smart matic saying quote. We are proud of our twenty twenty election coverage and will vigorously defend this meritless lawsuit in court before the email notifications begin to pour in. Let's give ourselves a good morning.

I'm telling you. I've actually searched your name like or searched food babe in my podcast up to hear podcast on you. So you'd be surprised, but like you said Lawrence really fortunate because she has an amazing co host. I said food in the studio. Welcome into the studio. Happy to have you in here. We're kicking it right? Into gear. You wanted to compliment to be on air complement on a compliment to get this very limited in my life. I don't get it that many. So I'll take them. All right. We're going to get right into it. How did you get into investigating the food industry? That is such a that's a long answer to that question that I wanna give but I'm not going to give that answer. What I'm going to say is that for most of my life. I was sick. I grew up with two immigrant Indian parents that came here really trusting of the American food supply and in order to fit in. They let us eat all the American food. Right. Any kind of fast food. We wanted to eat any kind of processed food. We wanted to eat a shunned my mother's homemade Indian cooking. So that I would eat sales bery stake in have neutral game bars. Like everybody else at school, and you know, lunch Ables and all of that mess and as. A result. I was just really always sick. I had eggs him all over my face. As MMA always had like some stomach issue going on never felt really well about myself and in my early twenties. I finally hit a breaking point. I was working for a big six consulting firm that put me on the road, and I was traveling on this like lavish expense account, and I was basically eating whatever they brought in. So that we would work through breakfast, lunch and dinner. So we would have these big spreads of like muffins and doughnuts in the morning and bagels. And then at lunch, we would have, you know, huge breads of like Italian food. And then of course, they'd have like a dessert table at the end like Tarum assu, or whatever and then at dinner they'd have barbecue. And then in the middle of the night because we are still working they'd bring in like more donuts, and it was just a smorgasbord of like gluttony just so that we could work and be like full of sugar and caffeine, and we would just go and work and Bill hours. The client, and we ended up being the product of the year that year, and of course, doing this amazing project. But as a result of all that work, I got really sick and it in the hospital with appendicitis back, then they said appendicitis is like random it can happen to anybody. You don't need your appendix like all these things right in the new data all the new data on it is pretty fascinating how your panics actually populate your gut with good bacteria, and you actually do need it. There is like a. Knicks either. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Anyway, so come on appendix. You need some products. So I was sitting in the hospital room recovering from this. I was in my early twenties. I was like wanting to just be out with my friends and meet guys, and like hang out, and like, you know, feel good about myself, but I felt awful about myself. And so I just made health commitment. I said, you know, what health is going to become a number one priority. I'm not gonna make any job or boss or anybody get my way of this. And so I started a channel this energy that I learned in high school where I was a top tier debater was number one in state three years in a row, and you know, recruiter to college go into bait and back, then when we were debating there, you know, there wasn't Google and you couldn't just Google stuff to find out like evidence of support your facts rights, you had to go to the library and actually go through the microphone and like print out stuff and carry big large tubs of different papers in evidence and all this stuff to different debate tournaments across the country when I'd compete, and so I did the same thing with my health. I started with research, and I. And I just started reading these huge books on Trish in one of the first books. I read was conscious eating by Gabriel Cousens and that book still at to me is a bible on how to eat. And and he just he broke it really down. He said, you know, the the processed foods out there are dead. They're dead foods. There's nothing of life to them, and you need to really eat an abundance of raw fruits and vegetables, and you know, some cook things and and just kind of laid out this this lifestyle. And so I started to quickly adapt my lifestyle to that. And things started to dramatically change for me. I mean, not only get off of at one point nine prescription drugs. I completely turned around my health. My my skin my hair, my weight fell off. I mean, everything just changed dramatically to the point where people around me were like, whoa. Whoa. What are you doing? You know, people who grow growing up with me in Charlotte lived there. All my life is still lived there. People going way. You you weren't like you were kind of like a, you know, you. I mean, you are always kinda cute. But you know, you just didn't look that. Great. 'cause you didn't really take care of yourself, boys and girls, boys and girls, we have a winner. This tastes like drinking, pineapple juice. I feel like I am completely in the zone.

Enjoy can you have specifics to what you did. Did you just add more vegetables? Where was there a certain fruit that you started really eating like if someone's out there, and they're listening? They feel like they're in a health crisis right now. And they wanna make a change can you give like really detailed specifics to that person. Yeah. I mean, that's a really good question. I can't tell you what the first thing. I did was. But I I guess the thing that made the biggest impact is I took back control of my food. Instead of allowing the office Decatur in food for me. I said, you know, what I'm going to bring in lunch every day. And I'm going to bring in breakfast. I'm going to decide what I'm going to have for breakfast. And shortly after this health awakening, I met my husband who I was dating at the time and he introduced me to oatmeal. I had never had oatmeal in my life, literally never had oatmeal. Just just was eating. Sugary cereals or bagels or muffins for breakfast neutral game bars, and that was one of the first things that I said, you know, what I'm just gonna you meal every day for breakfast. And then I'm going to bring in my lunch, and I'm gonna cook like, you know, some girl chicken and have some vegetables, and I'm just gonna take back that control and start learning how to cook. And I had to teach myself how to cook from scratch at that age because my my parents, just you know, I just I never was in the kitchen with them in terms of like helping cook or learning how to cook. It wasn't like a priority for them to teach me that and because we're both working teachers and busy themselves. And so, you know, I just wasn't involved a lot. I remember like schilling beans and going the farmer's market with my mom and a hated that. I just I don't know. I didn't I didn't like anything about healthy lifestyle whatsoever. Growing up and started to really embrace that and started to just learn about fruits and vegetables and started to incorporate more into my diet. But I think where I really made the dramatic change was when I stopped eating process. Foods when I in in. I didn't like completely stop eating, all processed foods. But the majority of ones that I would be snacking on the Oreos the Doritos the the processed foods that are at fast food. We're talking about the extreme processed foods like categories that his junk food. Yeah. And I mean, I would even say like right now like, and we can get into this. But you know, I have a new from riding. My my new book. Feeding you lies. I have a new found awareness of just how bad processed food in general is even organic processed food and just the way it's produced with the machinery at touches, the plastics at touches the things that get Leach into the contamination from nonconventional or non organic and conventional foods that get contaminated with organic food. I mean, just all of that in the awareness that I've learned from starting my own food line Vanni. I I see what's going on in the marketplace. And it is just str- strengthened my resolve so much. Just stay away from anything that has been mass produced, so so let's talk about a little because you've basically you're basically single handedly taking on the entire food and shell was I was googling before. And I they're trying to figure out. Okay, where where to start here you've even taken on the Obama administration. You've you've really kind of gone after let's see chick fillet AAA craft all of the mass like food producers where does this drive come from? And how do you decide who you want to debate or kind of go after? Yes. So, you know, you know, early in my career as an activist. You know, I was just writing sharing information about different products and menu items and things that I had come across because of personal experience like, you know, with Obama it was that I was a democratic national delegate for Obama to become president. I really believed in his presidency, and I still do and but one of the promises that he made during his presidents or during his campaign was that he would. You know challenge the administration to label genetically engineered ingredients, and he couldn't get that done because of just the the the lobbying efforts of the food and chemical industry and Michelle Obama to tried to to make that her platform, and she also couldn't get as far as I know she wanted to go because of the persuasion in the in the, you know, the influence that the big junk food companies have the coax the the crafts the Kellogg's the general mills of the world. And so, you know, for me, it was about just, you know, pushing the envelope and and in using my stature as a delegate at the at the democratic national convention to protest in favour of labelling, genetically modified ingredients because I think the labeling and knowing what's in your food become makes you become more aware. And you know, the the reason why this was so important to me was not the genetically modified food itself was. In the actual seed that they think got labelling will really like solve everything because let's take like the cigarette industry. For example, you go to Europe. And they like literally you want to smoke a pack of cigarettes over there. And there's a literally a dead baby on the on the on the on the pack. There's people with open throats, you think labeling is going to solve anything else. Now, so labeling was like the first step to creating awareness. Right. And what what happened with this whole labeling campaign, which is so beautiful to watch is not only with the with prop sixty five that was happening here in California that lost right? We there was a proposition that was proposed to label GMO's here in California, but it lost. But it was such a widespread mass campaign of awareness, teaching people about GMO's that people actually know what roundup is and Monsanto is now, and you know, Monsanto's means sued for the fact that their product is linked to cancer, and they're losing in court and awarding individuals millions and millions of dollars because of this. And so. You know, this awareness has allowed people to be come cognizant of the mass amount of chemicals being sprayed on our food. And so we can start to hopefully, reduce that so that's really the point of labeling right awareness. And it's the same point of why like, for example, some of my campaigns IVA able to target one specific ingredient like, for example subway was using this chemical called as die car-bomb. I'd and it was a chemical that was banned all over the world. If you used it in Singapore, you got fine four hundred fifty thousand dollars. It was a chemical that win. It's you know, it's a dope conditioner. So when you have a a piece of bread, right? There's those little itty bitty bitty air pockets that you see all throughout the bread. And if you bake bread at home, you know, sometimes the air paddock and is big over here and small over there, and you break it open, and it's just it's not like uniform. Well subway wants uniform bread across all of their locations. So they use a dough conditioner like as die car-bomb. I'd. To create that look and feel of the bread and also to decrease the amount of time. It takes for it to rise and Levin. So it's a cost cutting measure as well. And so they're using this chemical when it's inhaled can cause asthma, but also win it breaks down, and is heated it can turn into a carcinogen, and they're using this chemical here in the United States, but not elsewhere in the world because it was banned and regulated and other places in the world. And so I, you know, started a petition to get subway to remove this chemical to increase the awareness of this unethical behavior that the food industry has when it comes to the regulation of chemicals when they find out that they can't use a chemical in another country or another place because it's harmful. They should take it out of all their products. No matter where they're being sold. Instead, they use the government regulations to their advantage to continue to sell these chemicals to us. Don't you? I get all this. But don't you think? Some of the bigger issue. Maybe here is just us as human beings as individuals like for example, once in a while, and you're gonna hate me for this. I'll go and eat fast food had in and out hate you for that. You're gonna like once in a while. We're not gonna like this.

Enjoy I I don't think it's really about whether you can have it or not. I think the the problem that I've had with the way we've been taught about food is that we're not really taught about what's really actually in it. You know, when we take a class at school about nutrition, we're not taught about ingredients in processed foods. But that's the majority of our diets as Americans, you know, we're not taught about what these chemicals are doing. I mean, the fact that the majority of chemicals ninety nine percent of them that had been invented over the last fifty years has been invented for one sole purpose in one sole purpose only to improve the bottom line in the food industry. Not improve our health not going to be a void disease. Not sure help us. We're. I think the fundamental problem here is that we're just being gluttonous -ociety like maybe like, I know back to my point that. Yes. And no, here's what I'm going to disappoint. Don't I know I should not be eating fast food, or they don't it's all in moderation. I think as a society people have gone over the edge with their eating these things way too much from. Here's the other problem is that I go into the market, and I turn over everything. And I look at the ingredients because I want to be informed when I'm buying something. And I'm using day after day where I get pissed off is when they sneak shouldn't or when they call something, you know, maybe olive oil, but it's not cold. I want to know exactly what I'm eating a consumer. And I feel like they're lying to you on the back of the last. So that's where I get annoyed. Some really good examples of that actually in my new book. I talk about you know, one really popular bar that just got bought by Kellogg's and Rx bar, and they they list the ingredients on the front, and they say, no BS, and I was like so excited because whole foods CEO we. Out to me a couple of years ago. And he says, hey, what are the new trends that I need to be aware of and packaging ingredients. What do you see what's, you know, just was picking my brain said you're going to start seeing the ingredient label on the front of the packages? People are going to actually going to list their ingredients in big letters on the front of packages. And that's what Rx barn ended up doing. And so I was so excited to see this. And then I turn over the package to read the ingredient label just to see if it's true. And then they're sneaking in natural flavors and natural flavors are anything but natural. It is a creates this pop in your brain for you to get this boast of flavor to for you to remember that flavor crave. And just keep continuing to consume that flavor, and it makes food that wouldn't otherwise taste good taste good or special seasoning or natural flavors or preservatives, or what's a sunfish sunflower. Seed are not there's like an oil that starts with an S. I forgot what it's called. Yes. Or they. Sneak soy in stuff. I mean, taking a vitamin shot the other day, and it was says vitamin c the best of the best. They're comparing it to a ni-, blah, blah, blah. I turn it around. And it says it says leptons in it. So I think I'm saying that right? Is that what it's called leptons Lockton leptons? And I'm just like you can't even take vitamin shot without getting sneaking something in. So that's where I get frustrated, and I agree with with how you're really you're being a crusader for so many different people because it's it's I want to know what's in my food. And I want to know exactly what I'm eating. And then if I choose to make the choice to go to McDonald's drive-thru that's on me. You know? Yep. Yep. I'm not disagreeing with all of that. I'm just fundamentally thinking that as a society, we've just gone over the edge where we become gluttonous. Right. People are eating so much fast food. There will take all this junk food eating any like fundamentally people need to understand. Okay. Everything in moderation. And what's happening is we're going way over the edge number blaming the food industry, which does play a part, but us humans plan even larger part. I mean, like I feel like so much of our food that is coming from like our main crops, like corn soy, canola cottonseed is being used to create these processed foods and use to create fast food, and you know, that's what the majority of Americans are eating because these farms are being farm crops were being subsidized. And so, you know, I think the larger problem is like getting to the root of it. Right. We need our government officials to start subsidising like real fruits and vegetables, and like everything in like, an abundance of variety of vitamins and minerals that we need in our diet. But but also I think the fundamental thing that hasn't happened up until now is that this awareness is starting to take place where in this food revolution. Where people are finally paying attention to what's in their food. They care about it. They care about buying organic. I mean, that's the largest growing segment of any food sector right now. You know, it continues to grow every single year. You know? We have the opportunity to use social media to our advantage. And you know, we are the voices, you know, no longer do traditional media. Get get this message out. We can get it out ourselves. And that's what's so powerful about the food. Babe community is that they not only care about themselves. They care about getting this message out in educating other people about what's actually happening. You know, you talk about McDonald's McDonald's. French fries is another great example of just the disparity across nations. So like, you know here in the United States. There's a slew of chemicals that they use to make McDonald's French fries. One of those chemicals is die method. Polly Salak sane. It's used in. We want some die Beth my Massana fun kind of kind of fries. My goal is my favorite one. How do you say that? I'm going to say that every time. How do you say a one more time Di methyl police saying you want some of those fries preserved informality to hide it's definitely not going to get you wanna be consuming. But in Europe, they in the UK, they're making these McDonald's French fries with three ingredients potatoes oil and dextrose a little show that's just sugar. And then you had the. Salt after the facts, you could actually regulate how much salt you get and in here in the United States. We have a totally different recipe because we can get they can get away with it here. And I just think it's completely unethical thing that these companies are doing, and so these campaigns that I've started have just been to to point this out. So people are wearing they can't be. So trusting of all the foods are out there. I mean, there's this underlying assumption that all the food that we eat is safe that it's been tested by the FDA that, you know, someone's looking after us, but the FDA is relying on the food companies themselves to test these ingredients, and of course, the food companies are going to say they're safe because they're making money off of it. I mean, Michael, you don't you think that it's that it's fucked up that I will go to a grocery store, and I go, and I buy strawberries, and I think I'm being safe. And then I go, and I buy blueberries and cantaloupe, and then I find out that it's it's and I don't know if this is the proper verbiage that it's fake, it's GMO's. It's not even like, it's not even a real organic strawberry. You almost have to go to the farmer's market. We'll luckily there's no as far as I know of any GMO strawberries in the marketplace. Oh, that was good to know. Maybe I'm talking cantaloupe corn. What else am I talking? So you're so the the main GMO crops are corn soy, canola, zucchini squash, papaya and cottonseed. So if you go to the grocery store thinking, you're being healthy getting papaya, and you take it home to eat it. And it's not even like is is that the proper verbiage. It's not a real papaya. Well, no it is. It's just it's, you know, the the seed that was used to create that Papy has been engineered to do something different than nature intended, got it. Yeah. And it's patented its patented technology. Okay. Let's talk about the brands that you like if someone's out there listening, what are some legit brands that you could just recommend to the audience that they should go. Check out that you love. Oh that is a really good question. So again, you know, I have the strong resolve to really reduce the consumption of my processed foods. But you know, one of the the companies that I've loved, and it's a pasta brand that I feed my daughter's tolerant. It's a red lentil pasta. They make little elbow version. So you look like little macaroni as they make penny. They make re Tony little spiral shapes. And she loves it. And it's one hundred percent one ingredient organic lentil flower, you're going to get some tolerant tonight. Yeah. It is amazing. And it has like like twenty grams of protein or something ridiculous. And it it fills her up fills me up. I love it. I put some kale in there. You know, and I use I love the sauce. It is so hard to find. But it is amazing. It's the spied biodynamic Italian sauce from Italy. It's called yellow barn. And it is phenomenal. I can eat it writing down. I'm writing it's the best market and any other brands. So that's just something that I have a staple in my house. I'm trying to think what else that I typically eat. It could be it doesn't need to be a brand. Either. Could just when you go grocery shopping. What are you looking for? Yeah. I'm staying away from all the package process stuff. I'm eating a lot of fruits and vegetables. I buy organic meat whenever I can. I like wild salmon, you know, every single day. I'm having pretty much the same thing for breakfast. I make my steel cut oats in a crock pot. So it's ready to go. First thing in the morning and make sure those organic, of course, because non-organic oats are sprayed with glyphosate, you know, space round up. And so they're they're harvested with the so it's really important to buy organic. And there's been a new study that came out recently that shows you know, that this is actually actually really occurring on in major brands like Quaker Oats, you know, one of the biggest brands owned by Pepsi. So so yeah, have that every morning I had. My ground flaxseed that I grind myself. And I store my frigerator. That's amazing for breastfeeding. So breastfeeding my daughter, so it's amazing for that mazing for women's health. It's it's really great for cleaning you out. So, you know, keeping your gut and check, and then, you know, I always have either a green smoothie green juice every single day. And I keep the fruit content down to a very minimum. Like, my green juices. I almost never get fruit in them. Maybe just a little lemon. But that's it. And then for lunch. I always have a big salad. And so I'm not eating a lot of process things. Even I mean, the most even the steel cutouts for the least process, oats, you can buy and then he'd afternoon, I do eat something. Sweet. Like, I like something good, you know. And so I love organic dried, mango, so peeled is a brand that I buy I love that brand. Yeah. I can eat the whole bag in one sitting home, which is it is your policies like in every chemicals bad. Or is it there's some? Some that can make like how much of this is basically you look and say, okay, there's a list of these chemicals like do any make the cut. I don't think they're all bad. I think that there isn't a necessary reason to consume a lot of them. Now, there are some that. You know, I think you can really there's there's enough processed foods out there right now that are being created without any of these like industrial chemicals that you can still eat processed food and still get by without eating them. So I don't think they're necessary for your human diet. Like, I personally don't wanna be an experiment of the food industry. Like, I'm I don't want my body to be hijacked by the food industry. And that's why one of the reasons why void natural flavors. Now, there is a product that is like crack to me, it's the Annie's chocolate bunnies. Those things are like cracked me. I cannot stop eating them until the boxes gone. And they use natural flavor in them. And I know that's the reason why because there's just no other reason why. Why of all the things on this planet that I will eat eat. That is organic, you know, I have that problem with cheese and chips, there's probably something and cheese. That's that. I don't even. Here's an organic version. She's school these questions that I do this with everybody. Like, you know, we just had Dr Gundy on we'll probably get into some of his take soon. But there are so many extreme examples on both sides that I've seen gone wrong. Like if you know somebody that's really really unhealthy. We all know what that looks like. But then I've seen the other side of it where someone thinks reading extremely healthy. They cut out all processed foods. They all need organic. There's a lot of those people in having a ton of problems. You know, what's difficult. Learn women really difficult. You know, what's even more difficult women's shopping for men on Valentine's Day, we don't eat flowers. We don't need chocolates. We need a couple of things I think you know, what I'm talking about. But if you wanna get a gift for me, and if you for the women out there that are thinking about a gift for the man in their life. We have the answer for you in that is woo more play. That is the answer ladies that. Woo more play because that's gonna lead to the boom boom in the bedroom. Here's what you deal you. Take candy hearts from Rite Aid. You put a little woo on your bedside you sprinkle the candy hearts around the. Woo. And then you write on a little post it note C tonight and do like a lipstick kiss K. That's all you have to do for the guy. It's so easy. It's so officiant. And it's a win win for everyone. Because who doesn't like all natural coconut oil lube, and for those of you that thing like, I don't know if that's for me trust me. If is not for you. It's for your men. We are excited about it. The men that I have given it to my friends the ladies that I've given it to their friends they are experiencing on a whole new level, which means they're experiencing the other thing on a whole new level. Okay. Michael. Let's not get like so technical about it guys. Just go check out womb or play dot com, and you can see for your. Itself. There's all these natural ingredients in it like stevia for a little taste. We got a little B's lax for a little grip, and then some vanilla essence for a little smell. And then of course, coconut oil speaking vanilla let's keep some vanillin. Woo. But not vanilla in the bedroom of spice it up ladies, vice it up get the men in your life. Woo. More play go to play dot com and enter promo code him in her for twenty percent off right before Valentine's Day that's womb or play dot com and then code him and her for twenty percent off in joy in happy Valentine's Day from London me. Now, I don't think they I don't think those people have a ton of problems because they stopped processed food, and when they stop food groups, so they eliminate like they they become vegan or they are on Akito diet or they go to some extreme where they're eliminating food groups. I think some of those people end up getting sick because they end up doing that kind of stuff. I have never known anyone to get sick because they eliminated processors. Let's talk about a little. So maybe they cut out all red meat all of a sudden note done or. Are they cut out? All gluten. That's what you that's what you do see the problems coming in. Well, no. I mean, I'm saying when anything is taken to the extreme like we're do seeing a removing processed foods from your diet. I don't think is extreme because still you have the abundance of everything everything nature intended, everything on this earth that were meant to eat you still can eat all of it. Right. Every nut in seed and fruit and vegetable and meat that's out there. That's being produced like you can eat it all so I I don't feel like that's a I'm still eating butter. I'm still eating bread. Right. But I'm just eating homemade bread, right or Zeke, you'll bread that's another product that. I buy that. I love I like to see keel Brad to. And then someone told me there soya in it is that true. Yeah. There there is a soybean. There's a ferment. Not affirmative sprouted soybean. Okay. And some of the products, right? They do use that as one of the the, you know ingredients in one of the, you know, one of the breads or. Whatever, but there's certain breads that don't have it to. Okay. And I was also going to ask you about dairy with dairy. It's like, you know, we don't need to have a Cup of milk at breakfast and yogurt as a snack and then a cheese stick later on. And then have pizza for dinner and then have ice cream for dessert. Like that's way too much dairy, right? No one should be eating that much dairy period. It's just it's not intended for that purpose. And so I actually tell a story in the food babe way about how my ancestors who grew up with dairy used air, you know, they had one cow that they shared the entire whatever that cow produced in terms of mill shared with the entire street or village at the time, and you know, and they would use as much as they could. And they'd make a couple of desserts with it, and they would use yogurt and make yogurt fort to like dip, their, you know, prompt these and row T's and everything with back in India. Right. And that's how they would make butter with it. And that's it. You know, that's what they would do or g and that's that's all you need it for you don't need to eat it at every single meal. And so I think there's just. You know, we have government subsidies going to the dairy industry and the dairy industry wants us to consume milk. They have actually in abundance of cheese to the point where they want school children to eat so much Domino's is just going out of style. Right. So it's like, you know, we have a problem with like our government telling us and subsidizing advertising in media, and I'm programming to our tour schools into, you know, getting ingrained into our lifestyle that we need to be eating this much dairy all the time. And that's and that's part of the issue. And so like for me, I use dairy like a condiment, right? I don't think it needs to be eaten at every meal. So how are you going to balance your your strong views on processed foods with being a mom because I that's that's going to be hard because I feel like if you say, no, you can't have anything. Then that almost then I make y'all like they're going to be wanting to sneak things like what's your strategy? They're up, and we have a lot of friends that have young kids the kids. They're under strict diets, and they get away and they go with their friends, and they're gonna fairly do something in the kit. Immediately going for the canyon mmediately going for the junk as you're so restricted, so it's funny. I for the first year Harleys life like I did first year and a half or so I did really well with like kind of like shielding her from processed foods. Right. And then she saw like my husband munching down on some tea's like a chip a holic munching down on some chips. Yeah. There were gaining chips. But whatever, you know, much down on these chips, and she like want one won't one. And she just thinks it looks so cool is this bag? It's bright colored. You know, he's crunching on something and she just got her molars in. So she's like I can crunch now. And so she's just, you know, once these chips, and she loves them, you know. And so what I do is. I do a really good job of making sure that I give her a lot of choices in terms of fruits vegetables, and what she's eating and I teach her about every single fruit in every single vegetable. And I let her pick foods from our garden and make them and make them with us and see how we're cooking them in prepare. Wearing them. And you know, she's she's only two, but you know, she sits down with us at Bansi restaurants in. We'll sit there for the entire meal of an hour and a half to two hours and sit like an adult and not get up and run around or do anything because like we have really ingrained having a very conscious time eating breakfast, lunch and dinner with her. That's something that I do almost every single day. And yeah, it prevents me from being more productive at work or more productive at other things in my life. But it's so important for me to instill those great eating habits in her that. So when she thinks about eating she sits down, she mindfully eats. It's not like eating on the go or like, shoving something in her mouth, just to keep her full or quiet, or you know, entertained, and so, you know, really good example of the way that I kind of want a parent is the other day at the at the airport trying to entertain her at the airport. Right. And we're waiting for a flight. And I said, hey, let's just go into this little store and sometimes a little play with like stuffed animals or whatever they're selling in the stores and. There's this huge display of candy. And she was like, you know. Yeah. This looks cool to play with. So she's picking up butter fingers and cats and York, peppermint, Patty's, Snickers bars and all that. And I just said her and I said, hey Harley these things are yucky. They are so yucky. And she looked at me she said yucky. And I said yes, they are yucky. This is what mom has made her mission in life to be is to teach people not eat these foods because they're so yucky and she goes yucky. Okay. Not yummy yucky. And I was like, yeah. That's right. And so I didn't get into all the chemicals, whether you know, her level of understanding, it is not quite there yet in terms of understanding that, but I will and if I can just educate her, so she knows the truth about the food in terms of what's actually in there. And you know, how it serves the body and doesn't serve the body. Then I'm gonna let her make her own choices, and she's gonna make bad choices. And I'm going to have to cringe and look the other way and. And I'm just going to have to grin and bear it. But that, but then I know I've of done my part, and it's the same thing I deal with like my family that doesn't want to change. Right. You know, everybody has people in their family. They wanna change. And when they can't they're the hardest people to change, but you can only lead, by example. And I, you know, I'm in charge of the groceries. Right. I'm in charge of the groceries at the house. I see what comes in and out occasionally, my husband will sneak shouldn't. But you know. You know, I, you know, I am the household. So as long as she's eating in my house. I know I have a have a some really great choice that kid. Remember that movie heavyweights when we hit the stuff in the in the bed post, and then they have the secret stash. That's how I been a you're not he's not attached to food. Really? He has no attachment to food. So that's that's an interesting thing. Like, I feel like I associate like chips and salsa with just heaven. He doesn't have any kind of Tashkent food. So the foot I always say about him. That's why I feel like you can have this attachment to food. Appreciate good food. I it's not what I don't base my life. I've look at it as kind of like fuel. But but again, if we go to Italy, and we're in really nice restaurant. And we go down the street like lots of we had to tell you, Dan Tana's. Danton is great and like all all get into it. But I'm not I'm not sitting around thinking about my next meal for sure so you built a massive brand just on the business side. What is the day to day for you is there? I'm sure every day is different. But if someone's out there, and they're listening, and they want to they have a something that they're inspire. By like, you where would they start? So every day. I let let's take a typical day. So I wake up in the morning. I usually allow my daughter to be my alarm clock. And again, I'm still breastfeeding. So the first thing I do is breastfeed my daughter, and then I have lemon water lemon with warm water and kind pepper every single morning without fail. And even my daughter knows to wait until I have it. Right. And she's funny. She's started to take a couple of sips here. And there of it, which is really cute, and she goes spicy. And and so then I have an Expresso I have my steel cut oats. And and then about thirty minutes or or so later, I am off to go work out. So either my husband's watching or have someone come in to watch Harley for that hour, or so, and I and I have to work out every single day for my mind like otherwise, I'm innings ball big ball of anxiety. So I after work out every single day, and I do like various things like orange theory. I go to a place called Hilliard studio. Method. That's really awesome in Charlotte. I go to yoga hot yoga loved that. And then I have a little gym in my house to and then I come back, shower and go straight my office. And I typically try to you know, before before true Vanni started. I typically only tried to have meetings like one or two days a week and have the rest time to do creative work to actually write in like think of the next investigation like investigate do the research. Make the phone calls to experts do all that stuff. Now things were way different with true Vanni since I started true vonnie, you know, it's a it's a product company that we started that believes in real food without added chemicals products without toxins labels without lies right now. I think the goal with true Vanni is to create as many products as we can as with the highest integrity possible. I mean, we did the impossible this year which was to create a protein powder with like five ingredients revive ingredients with the cleanest pea protein that is is available. Let me ask you this crusading against a lot of. Big companies a lot of money behind him powerful companies when I think about you. I think like there's like that guy. That's watching you in the car on the radio radio back to hickory. I wonder has anyone ever. What is there any been any moments where you felt like, you know, this is this is maybe dangerous to talk about or this is making me feel uncomfortable. There's people that are like some powerful people looking at what I'm doing. I mean, I think the biggest there's been challenges where I've definitely felt threatened and scared, but I think the biggest point where I was probably upset the most in my life in terms of an activist was actually after I was featured on the cover of experience life magazine. So after it was featured on the cover of experience life magazine, it was it was like, so cool. First of all dec- yourself on the cover of a magazine. But it was the food issue in that was really happy. You know, I was really happy about that. Because we were talking about really important issues in that magazine and just getting the mission out there about the ingredients in food and getting people to pay attention to these chemicals and getting them to pay attention to what they're eating and it just was really excited moment for me. And what happened was their entire website? Presence on Facebook got taken over by an astroturf campaign paid for by the PR industry. We don't know exactly who paid for it or who orchestrated. But it it was partly a a hate group that you know, I have on Facebook that just sits in hates on me all day. And then partly, you know, actual experts and other people that are paid by the food industry to to like say that I can't believe you had this person on your cover. I'll never buy your magazine. Again, you know, your magazine sh- shit. You know, all of these really really bad things about experience life magazine people in an up. Roar about me being on the cover. Right. They've never had anything like this ever happened with anybody that they ever put on a cover of a magazine, and it got so bad that these trolls went to their Amazon rating and took their magazine that was at like four and a half stars down to two stars. And I felt so helpless because I was like first of all the whole experience life magazine. Gene opportunity was amazing. They flew me out to L A. They treated me with such respect. And so nice. They like, but lady who does like when at Patras hair did my hair, and I just felt like so like proud to be part of that magazine. Right. It was just such an amazing opportunity in just stole, you know, the spotlight, and they also stole like the moment from me in ended up being the most sold magazine for them that year, which was incredible. But it also brought down, you know, their brand value on Amazon it, and it was it was a moment where I couldn't, you know. There was nothing. I, you know, other than you know, trying to fight this kind of astroturf troll battle online. There's nothing much. I could do. And if I were to spend my energy doing that. I would be taking my focus off the willing and focus off, you know, get I mean, the whole reason they're doing that is to keep you know, to take your eye on the ball. Right. They don't want you to figure out the next investigation or the next company to expose. They want you to fight them. Right. Get into this. Like petty petty bullshit, right? And so that's what was really hard for me to to handle. And that was like the start of just probably six months of a ruthless PR campaign to take me down in the media. And they tried to paint me any which way they could. And the New York Times the Atlantic. These giant publications they try to paint me as a pseudo scientist is someone who didn't have a, you know, a science degree. So I didn't know what I was talking about. And it just made me so mad because like you do not need to have a science or nutrition degree to know how to eat or even to research how to eat agree with not needing to have a degree. But how much of this is based on science? I guess for my own knowledge. Yeah. I mean, some of the harmful effects of these chemicals. There are studies that are been conducted in reviewed by several nonprofit organizations not in anyone can read those in talk about them, and expose them. So it's like, you know, just like a journalist. You know, research is something in writes about it's the same way that I was doing it. But you know, they were trying to paint me as a person that didn't know much in paint me just as a pretty face. And that really angered me because I you know, that was never mind tension to use the name food babe to do that. It was really just a cute name name a blog. It wasn't it. I never knew I was going to be turning into this activists. It was really just to share. You know, how I'd turn my life around in my health. So how do you deal with trolls on the internet? 'cause it sounds like you've had your fair share of them. Oh my gosh. Yes. So the first thing I did after this was I turned off Google alerts. So I didn't I did till I didn't want anything that was positive or negative about me to affect my daily work. Right. I wanted because my mission comes from within like my mission is comes from my own integrity of like teaching the world like they can eat healthier right there things that they need to know about the food industry. They need to know about their playbook. How they used these tactics. These two astroturf campus. Only use these astroturf campaigns, by the way on activists. They use it to promote ideas as well into advance their agenda in comment sections of every major media outlet there is you know, any I mean in the political realm, you see it all the time. I mean, you see all the fake news that Facebook has tried to combat it same thing in. It's being you know, it's, you know, they used these front groups and trade groups, and I talk about this. And feeding you lies next book about you know, what specifically they're doing and how to safeguard yourself and become your own health investigator. And when you see a headline, for example. I mean, there's a headline recently and I'll get back to your question. But there's a headline recently that was like coconut oils. Unhealthy, right. It was everywhere. Did you see it? I didn't see that. Okay. Because it I mean, it was on the front of the USA today. I mean, it was everywhere. And even my mom's texting me like, I told you. So like, you know, and I'm like mom. No, no. The American Heart Association is the person that put out the statement and their experts that are reviewing the research. Cherry picked it to favor themselves because they're being paid by the corn and canola industry. That's what's really happening behind this. And she's like, oh my gosh. And so I like, of course, I had to write about it. And then, of course, write this book, and like expose like when you see these headlines, you have to dig deep or you have to go in see who these experts are that are telling you to eat this way because they may have an agenda behind the scenes like me, I don't have an agenda. I want people to eat the cleanest possible like to the earth. So there's no like, you know, I'm not trying to sell you some chemicals. So the first thing I did was stopped to go back to your question about how I deal with online. Trolls, stop Google alerts. The second thing I did was got a Facebook moderator. So that you know, they could handle, you know, get get rid of the riffraff because you know, this is this is your community. This is your page. It's your you what what would be classified as a say that somebody came in. And 'cause I always like to have a healthy debate. You you come in. And and I'm just questioning something is that is that a troll or is that somebody that's just abating? So what is the? Line of troll. I understand if someone's making comments about your looks or if someone's just saying mean derogatory things, but if they're trying to enter into debate would that be moderated, would you? Oh now. Oh now is fine. And I put an asterik there. Now, certain debates were started by some of these experts that were being hired by the food industry, and they would say to their followers code food babes page in debate them and try to you know, tell them they're wrong or whatever. And you'd see these same people come over from that page, and then they take over your page will if we saw an astroturf campaign like that happening. We would just block them all make sense. Now, the reason I asked like so you've been labeled by some as a fear monger. How do you respond to that? I think you know, it's really interesting that people label me is a fear monger when we're in a situation where people are dying every single day of cancer. And the only solution out there in the mainstream medical world is to like either cut poison yourself or burn. And you is is it's a really sad situation. And to say that I'm scaring people about processed foods or these chemicals. I asked them to just go read the studies themselves. Do they want to eat small doses of chemicals that are linked to cancer every single day? You have to ask yourself that question. I'm not here to tell you what to eat or what not to eat. I'm here to show you the information. And I want you to make that decision for yourself. And that's why at the back of feeding you lies. I take people through a very simple challenge in this challenge will just change your perspective on the way, you're eating will open your eyes so dramatically, but it is. So so simple. You just literally ask yourself three questions at every single meal. Try to do it for a week in the three questions are what are the ingredients. Right. You have to know what you're eating in order to really change your health. And if you know what the ingredients are in what they're there for in. What they are. And if you don't know what they are you need to stop eating it until you do that. Will fundamentally change what you actually just even put on your plate. Then the second question is are these ingredients nutritious right in your health is your goal, and you want to be the healthiest you can be you wanna live life to your wildest dreams because I can tell you right now, if I felt like I did, you know fifteen years ago, I wouldn't be able to do what I'm doing today in terms of the impact I'm making this world and following my dreams and making everything become a reality. And so when you really achieve health you start to see other areas of your life of like, oh, here's why here's my purpose. Here's what I need to be doing. And this is what's going to really truly make me feel alive every single day. But you know, the next question you ask is are these ingredients nutritious, and if they're ingredients that are there that are not nutritious. You'll know that you're eating them, and it will change your awareness. It will change your brain. And it will you'll start to say to yourself. Well, maybe I don't need to eat that. And then the third question you ask yourself or where do these ingredients come from? Where do they come from? So is this, you know, this white sugar, then I'm eating over here that is sprinkled on my oatmeal, or whatever that way. Yeah. No. It's what is it? It's sugar is it nutritious. It's really not interested. There's not any nutrition really in sugar. And then the third questions. Where's it come from? Oh, it comes from a factory where they bleach it. Why it doesn't look like pure cane sugar anymore? That's like green and Brown right from nature. So like you start to to investigate all the different things that you're eating on a daily basis in and you start to become aware of where things come from in like, you know, even if you started with a piece of meat, you know, you know, what's a piece of meat. And then, you know, it's probably nutritious, right? There's a lot of macro and micro- nutrition in a piece of meat, and then you know, there's protein there's other things. And then where does it come from? Is it coming from a factory farm where they're feeding old candy to those cows because that's actually happening people don't know that. But you know, all the old candy has some place to go, and it's being fed to our farm animals. You know, those that's one of the things. That in the book as well. And so it's you know, it's all those butter fingers. Get your daughter going to the cows all the olden Halloween. Candy, you donate. I don't know. What is a book a resource podcast that you can recommend to our audience. So I, you know, I kind of already set it Gabriel Cousens conscious eating that book is just it's so ancient, but it's hope our full and where can everyone find you? Where can they find your new book pimp yourself out? Yes. So you can find my book at feeding you lies dot com. You can find it at every major bookstore. And it's it's going to open your eyes about the food industry. It's going to reveal the entire playbook. It's gonna make you a better eater. And if you eat you need to read it if you eat you need to read it everyone label liars, beware. You may be investigating. And what's your Instagram handle at the food bay beloved?

20201130 Nicole Sandler Show -Tracing the Crazy Back to Brad Friedman
"The following program contains graphic material including offensive language fewer. This question is advised. Jeez got the news. She talks with news makers she encourages us to laugh and she cries with us speaking truth to power and questioning authority daily. It's the nicole sandler. Show all right. Welcome to brand-new week. We made it through thanksgiving. Hope you had a good one eight quiet one but a good one nonetheless so we have a great show for you today. A busy one. And i gotta talk quickly. Because here's what happened over the thanksgiving weekend. I of course cooked. No turkey here because we're doing the vegan thing most of the time anyway we actually had Tortilla pizzas on thanksgiving night. Because we actually hit king crab the next night. We did so once in a while. I cheat but there you go anyway and over the weekend. I spoke to my friend. Brad friedman we don't get to talk a whole lot during the week and he's rarely ever on this show because brad tapes his show broadcast at the same time. I'm on the air so it makes it difficult and his show is very work intensive. Because i do it live. But he reproduces it in as as i've learned when i've guest hosted for him but today brad friedman is my guest for most of the hour for good reason. I'm sure you've heard some of the craziness coming from trump's crack legal team or i should say legal team on because it sure seems that way. They actually called themselves. The elite strike force of rudy. Giuliani john jennifer ellison sydney powell and these people are batch shit crazy and frankly i honestly have not spent a lot of time following the story that they're pushing because number one. We know it's all right. It's all nonsense. And when i heard sydney powell do the whole thing about hugo chavez and the communists in cuba. And i just i tuned out. Because they're not they are who patched it fucking crazy but what i spoke to brad and he's like have you gotten my alerts lately because if you if you read the brad blog at brab log dot com he and you get on his mailing lists he does send out alerts and i did. I had read something about those dominion voting machines which i remember vaguely from about a decade ago when brad used to cover problems with these electric voting machines brad. Friedman is one of the best investigative reporters out there dealing with election issues dealing with election integrity dealing with electronic voting machines and the like and about well eight or ten to twelve years ago. Brad did a whole series on those electric voting machines and the the lack of security among them and what he wrote back. Ten to twelve years ago was accurate at the time but then again things have changed in the ensuing years. But he's been getting tons of web traffic because the whole story about dominion which he'll explain in a couple of minutes were all goes back. It traces back to britain. Friedman's brad blog and his reporting from about a decade ago. Except they got it all wrong. Brad got it right. But giuliani ellis. And sydney powell. Don't know what the hell they're talking about. So i asked brad to come on in phyllis in on this. Meanwhile today arizona. The governor of arizona certified the election. Nair here this happened. The votes have been tabulated. All fifteen counties have certified their results. In addition to certification with senator lacked mark. kelly winning the general election. i will be signing official documentation. Today that will be hand. Delivered to the secretary of the united states senate. Uganda arizona's new. Senator can be sworn into office as swiftly as possible. Good some are. Kelly should be sworn in by one day because you know. He's filling a seat. That was vacated a filling out the term anyway so when i found that clip online then i look at the two it was on twitter and all of these people are going nuts. Here's the claim from the crazies from the crack. I'm sorry elite strike force legal team crack on tap. That's what i should call them. The elite strike force legal team on crack because they must be smoking. Something basically what they're alleging in arizona. Is that each quote democrat candidate. Got thirty five thousand fraudulent votes attached to their tally. It's all nuts. None of this happened. And by the way if you haven't seen it yet last night on sixty minutes chris crabs he's the former director of cisa cybersecurity and infrastructure security administration that that dealt with all that stuff. He went on sixty minutes last night and reiterated that there was nothing there was no fraud there. There was no faulty dems that everything ran smoothly. In fact this was the most secure election in many many years and the reason he points jewish paper ballots. There's a paper trail. And where they have done. These recounts shown is that there was no anomaly. In fact wisconsin. Today finished their recounts or over the weekend and today certified their election and costing donald trump three million dollars to find out the joe biden actually increased his lead by. I wanna say like one hundred and thirty two votes in the two counties they recounted. Yeah so you see where this is going. There are an opposite world but i want to hone in on what this crack of this legal team on crack doing so for that we turn to the man who not only writes the brad blog but hosts the brad cast. Yeah he likes the sound of his name and voice take it away. Well nicole and brad and a pardon. My stuff was saturday when we recorded this all right so just keep that in mind. No makeup here. we go. How what a treat we have today. Brad friedman himself joins us on the line. Hello brad nobody ever says the treat. When i show up thank you well. It is a tree. It is a treat because today you're gonna get to explain something to us that i can't figure out but at least you can tell us. The oranges of the dominion story. Of by that i mean the origins and the dominion story. I'm talking about. is this craziness. The from donald trump's so called legal team of sydney powell and rudy giuliani. and jenna. what's her last name. Genoa ellis ellis ellis. So it's funny because we were talking the other day off the air as we do occasionally and you mentioned that your website brad blog dot com has been getting all kinds of traffic lately and us due to the fact that you know people know that in case they don't they will now that for well over a decade almost. Do you have been covering the news. But with a real focus on election integrity voting the voting process for years. We were bitching about the touch. Screen unverifiable voting machines that you covered like nobody else and back in the day you went deep into this company called dominion now i remember talking about. Espn s and a couple of mothers. Honestly i don't remember dominion remember. Espn s. because i was down here in florida and we had those horrible machines but dominion is one that you covered some years ago and this is the basis of their claims of voter fraud. Well they're they're making a several different charges claiming A a na- nationwide voter fraud conspiracy. And that would be where voters actually commit fraud by Putting in in millions by their cow. Millions of fake ballots shouldn't have been cast of their scheme. But they're putting forward and the other part is in international Conspiracy that is headed up by The dominion voting company. Another voting company named smart matic venezuela. He's heard that and who who. Yes and that is the basis for which they have turned to the brad blog. Yes you're right. i have been doing. Investigative reporting on all of the voting machine. companies for almost twenty years was point and they started a couple of weeks ago When you know they desperately wanted to figure out how it is that they could possibly lose the election that everyone said they were going to lose that they ended up losing just as everyone said they would. They couldn't accept that so they had to figure out. Well what must have. How would the stolen from us. And somehow they landed at brad. Blog dot com. Where i've been covering this stuff for years in the voting machine companies in question for years and they took a bunch of my investigative reports which let me say right off the bat i stand by i still stand by today from two thousand and eight and two thousand and ten Then it is those stories to sort of fit whatever nonsense they want to push out now. There are some truth to it that they are concerned about then that they should be concerned about but for years and years remember. They completely ignored these concerns. As a matter of fact they told me that. Know these were just conspiracy theories and sore loser ism One of my one of the last tweets. I ever received from Now dead andrew. Breitbart was him. He used to love to make fun of me for reporting on deibel than so that i think it. If it's not the last near one of the last tweets that he sent me saying. Hey the brad. Blog deibel deibel depot. These people went on and on and then he says boo at the end. Thought this stuff was all stuff and nonsense until now. When of course they don't it's a worldwide international conspiracy to see the election from them so Yeah there's Several different companies voting system companies that they have sort of all conflated. The reason you've never Or hadn't heard much about dominion is because they're actually fairly new. The big companies in the us used to be of course es and ashram is the largest and still is then there was of course was remember them. Yeah i can they actually. It's deeb still exists. There election The division was called deibel election system inc. and so they refer to themselves as deserty. No i've always had a difficult time giving them as i don't use that term anyway So yeah there was people and and then sequoia and then heart inner civic and those are sort of four companies that did most of the private vendor offering of our election systems for many years in this country and Debold was so bad at it and so corrupt at it that eventually. Espn s bought them. Up the department of justice Said no that's a problem that will make espn s too powerful. Now the justice department. That hasn't done anything for antitrust for years and years but in this case I think it was around two Twenty ten they actually forced to divest of some of the deibel assets which were bought up by a company named dominion Which is the way a canadian firm. Now you've got canadians got a lot of people in this country who are very very concerned about foreign companies. Having you know this kind of access to our election infrastructure But for some reason they're not worried about canada or at least they haven't been i am. I'm frankly worried about american companies being in our public elections But for some reason they've just overlooked Dominion there and then there's another company. I mentioned named sequoia and sequoia Which was actually based. Down in florida For time they were owned by a company named smart matic which was tied to Then president hugo chavez of venezuela sequoia smart matic owned sequoia on until some folks in congress on both the right and left most notably carolyn maloney of new york said hey why is venezuela involved in our elections In the us the smart company and they stuck the investigation on them. That's a division of the treasury department. That does secret investigations of companies Foreign investment in companies that are involved in american infrastructure and this investigation being tied to venezuelan hugo chavez resulted in sequoia and its managers buying sequoia back buying itself back from smart matic to become an independent company. Are you with me. yeah. I think so. Okay okay and and believe me. I'm simplifying so just just to make it clear of its own theory until i found out that no they didn't actually purchase themselves completely away from smart matic. They pretended they did it. Got syphilis the investigation. The treasury department investigation off. Its back carolyn. Maloney and congress back but in fact sequoia Continued to be tied to smart matic because smart matic owned the intellectual property for all of the voting machines that sequoia had all over the country at the time and they supplied about a. Let's call it a third or so of the voting systems across the country and sequoia lied about that and they lied about it to the public. They pretended they had a clean break from venezuela and smart and this you know hugo chavez tied company but they didn't they were lying. I reported as much in an exclusive report. I caught them. I caught them lying about all of this. It's all very well documented. They were lying in court cases about it. They were asked by the city of chicago and cook county about their ties. Ties to venezuela and the ceo of the company of sequoia. At the time guy named jack blaine he lied about it. I exposed at all. The people who even worked at sequoia at the time had no idea it was quite a brouhaha back in two thousand nine. Two thousand and ten jack blaine. The ceo called a secret conference call with all of the employees of sequoia where they demanded to know. Hey are we still tied to venezuela jacqueline admitted. Yes yes we are. They still own the intellectual property the ip and it was a secret conference. Call that of course. I was listening to and so i have all the evidence of him admitting to his own employees of this. Okay that's sequoia. And i covered that at the time and then finally sequoia was a struggling business so dominion bought them up. Bought up sequoia that after they had already taken on parts of debold and so forth so all the sudden dominion powerhouse while dominion by sequoia and tells everyone hey we have purchased you know all of sequoia all of their assets and i went to dominion. Hey actually sequoia doesn't own. All of those assets that venezuela companies smart matic does and martin matic Did not sell it. Ip and dominion immediately. Right out of the gate lied about the ownership of sequoia. So they're all a bunch of liars. All of these companies are a whole bunch of liars is documented. It is sort of that set of stories. Then that sydney powell Who was for a few short minutes serving as part of the team. Trump legal team through giuliani. ellison's over. She comes out and makes all of these claims about how all of our elections were being stalled by dominion and somehow by smart matic mind you that venezuelan company. Smart matic Until this year had no business whatsoever in. Us election smart matic and dominion are actually competitors but somehow Trump team trump in their desperation has made them one in the same has taken dominion which yes runs all of the Elections for all of the outing systems for example in georgia bought a new dominion system in georgia. The first time at has somehow said well anywhere that dominion is in about a third of the country. that's actually secretly smart matic from venezuela and dead hugo chavez election for donald trump. Oh my goodness and so. And you're the one who was reporting on this stuff back in the day and so that's so somebody goes looking for stories on dominion and sequoia and what's the name of the venezuelan company. The it's going to take back to brand blog. You're welcome. I am behind the entire conspiracy theories scandal to steal the twenty twenty election four joe biden from donald trump. Apparently this there was a lot of people. you know. hopping debate. It's kind of amusing. Because i've been seeing stories lately that even the mainstream corporate media at one time believed elections could be stolen. Brad friedman at huffington post reports now having run had republished my exclusive crediting. Now media agrees jon dolan. God this works. Yeah see this is. This is just too absurd but hey welcome to twenty twenty. Because by the way there's a lot of other funds that you know has been making its way into the story along the way for example the founder of smart matic matt waylon company a few years before all of this that i'm talking about That investigation was going on into the smart matic and sequoia by the The treasury department and congress the president and founder of smart matic went down in a small plane crash and died and it was right after. This investigation started I reported on it at the time. I don't believe. I said that he was assassinated or or get it or anything else. They just reported on the facts of it. Well i've seen this report at brad. Blog dot com. Come up all over the place over the past week and of course wing nuts are out there pointing to this as evidence that they're trying to hide what happened in the elections after twenty twenty by killing the president of smart matic ten years ago. Not noticing that it is a twelve story. Happened on tuesday right so i guess that's how you job shamas was involved as well even though he's been dead for eight years or something like that says you owe you so this woman we're speaking with brad friedman who finds himself in the middle of the donald trump's lawsuits against our election integrity and the ironic thing is that according to the interview that i did on friday well Recording to the guy who was just fired by donald trump for saying the guy who ran the cybersecurity safety whatever it was called or something saying that this was the safest most secure election ever and there was no evidence of any fraud or any any malpractice score. Anything like that. that's why he was fired but on your show. Even on the broadcast on. Friday are berman. Agreed with me that or agreed with him that this was the safest most secure election in years when for years for almost two decades. Brad friedman. You've been railing against these electronic voting machines mostly because there's no verifiable paper trail. Well maybe this year's was so secure and safe because we had so. Many people voting on paper ballots so they are verifiable is that raw or no no and i might take exception on. I heard your Excellent interview by the way with berman I i might take some exception with what chris crab chris guy. The guy ended up cisa thrown away. You know and and and this is the part. As i mentioned there is truth. There is a nugget of truth to what the republicans are now concerned with after years of not which is that you know when they say when we say there's no evidence of of of saf theft and be a you know some sort of cyber means or another that's true the question is who has actually looked and even if they looked. Would they be able to see that evidence. And that is a problem with these systems. And you mentioned so you know prescribe says this is the safest most secure in in us history. I'm not exactly sure what he's basing that on i mean the entire cybersecurity infrastructure the. Whatever it's called agency security agency that he headed up only formed three and a half years ago so this is the first presidential election that they've ever overseeing so maybe it was. The most secure insists a history. I'm not sure You know we. We don't actually know. And that's the problem with these systems. You referenced. paper ballots. Yes and in fact. We had more hand marked paper ballots than ever before because we knew so much. Absentee voting right. That's really good But you can't just say paper ballots because the problem is In georgia for example the secretary of state there guy by the name of brad ravnsborg. All brad's very. He spent a hundred more than one hundred million dollars on our brand new touchscreen voting system that he forced every county across the state to use that after a federal judge last year found their old debold touchscreen voting system to be insecure unverifiable and therefore unconstitutional. And she band that system from ever being used again. Well we were happy to get rid of those touchscreens and voting system experts and cybersecurity. Experts said great. Now you've got to buy a new system for your entire state because they do it all across the entire state county by county. He buys the entire system and so everybody begged him to use a hand. Mark paper ballot system. Instead he bought system dough minion and instead of hand mark paper ballot system. He calls it a paper ballot system. But that's only because it's a touch screen that then prints out. Its pewter mark summary of the voters vote and it may printed out right. It may print it out wrong. We know there's never any way to tell. Recent studies find that ninety three percent of voters ninety three percent. Voters do not notice when the computer has changed eight. Vote on their. That's what that's what voters have to use at the pretty things all across the entire state of georgia and he even threatened to sue one county. Who said we want. Use hand market ballots and said. He threatened to sue them. Oh god back in line. So that's the guy who they're now turning into an enemy who he's a republican he's frumpy republican. Brad wrappings burger. He's the guy who now republicans are claiming. They want him to resign. They're saying he's in cahoots with brian. Kemp the republican governor vase stole the allegra donald trump for job by so And then that sydney powell character She went on newsmax. Tv last weekend and apparently won a just a step too far. Okay yeah yeah no. Yeah you sat me clips that i think this is one of them but explain what what this is she. What did she visits her. Well actually it speaks for itself. If this was the one from news mac dot in it appears to be the one where she went just a step too far that got a got the team trump to throw her. Oh no all right. So this is Sydney powell otherwise known as bat. Shit crazy here. We go georgia's probably going to be the first state. I'm going to blow up and mr camp and the secretary of state to go with it. They're in on the dominion scam. What their last minute. Purchase or award of a contract dominion of one hundred million dollars. The state bureau of investigation station for george ought to be looking into financial benefits. Received mr camping and the secretary of state family about that time just clarify. You're saying governor camp who's been a longtime ally of the president is directly involved because of financial benefit and the conspiracy to defeat the president in georgia. We have certainly been told that there is evidence about and would warn investigation is. I can't give you any more details that now. But it certainly warrants an investigation. Oh my god well if she's been told that this as good as as good as Nabbing the crooks. I mean so. She had no actual evidence. Now mind you. i have been reporting on that sale. She's talking about. She describes it as a last minute. Purchase of these sort of last minute in that it took until last year for the federal judge in georgia to ban at the previous diba touchscreens. They used yes. They made this purchase. I have reported on it incredibly critically because it's a terrible system it's rube goldberg system. That literally involves five different computers for you to be able to show up at the precinct and cast one single. Not kidding. it's just it's insane. It's terrible the federal lawsuit got rid of the previous debold. Machines continues to this day. Trying to get rid of these new terrible dominion touchscreen systems. So i've been highly critical very critical of brad. Raffin burger and brian kemp in this whole thing but there is no evidence to my knowledge. Nobody has told me. Sidney powell that brian kemp and brad raffin spurs family was getting paid off by dominion. Who knew that seems like a pretty serious charge kind. Seems like you ought to have evidence for it before you actually produce it. What do i know. I'm just a concerned walker. Apparently apparently so sydney powell. To how the i mean. Had you ever heard of her before. Yeah i had because she represents room pretending michael. Michael flynn choose. The michael flynn lawyer. God how do they come up with these geniuses. Show up on fox news because then when they show up on fox news pretty much a straight line to the white house to represent the president himself or any of his criminal conspirators. Like michael flynn. She wasn't the original lawyer for michael flynn. He had a real lawyer annual lawyer. Who told him to do the right thing. And to You know aluna cop a guilty plea which. He did several times. Before sydney powell came onto the case and said no. You're honored we change our mind. One is not was set up and she's the one who again flipping that incase did such a great job that she was hired by team trump on this particular thing and they stayed with her and trump himself says that she is on our team on our legal team in a tweet from november fourteen. Which apparently no longer operative because jennifer. Ls a few days ago after what you just heard on newsmax where she went after camp and rams burger after she. The they said oh. Sydney powell has never been on our legal working for herself right. She's there next to rudy. Giuliani she was at the four seasons landscaping. remember correctly. Because that's that's the only one of these circuses. That i saw and i did it up and see that just whether embalming fluid was coming out of life all i saw that afterwards because how could you not right but the i wanted four seasons when she started talking about hugo chavez. I'm thinking what. W- what did i go through. What kind of acid did i eat. Brad blog so you. We've heard the one clip of sydney powell on newsmax. You sent one from the hair dye presser which was really weird because they were inside inside the republican national committee headquarters it. Was that hot in there. It was just really having a hot flashes or something to say but actually well. Yeah it was a pretty small room. They had a lot of people in there in the middle of a pandemic and that's where she started That's that's where she really came into her her own and not only added hugo chavez in venezuela but then she added a whole bunch of other countries as well okay. So this is sydney powell at that momentous occasion at the rnc headquarters where rudy's oil started leaking out of the where his brain should be sydney powell entire election. Frankly in all the swings should be overturned and the legislatures should make sure that the electors are selected for trump. And it's going to have to follow the constitutional provision that go be decided according to the amendment. God just must turn very. Let's turn into smart matic. Dominion are they or are they not linked so the answer is not link. I actually wasn't the press conference that clip you played sydney powell On the lou. Dobbs does yes now. She and where she sang. That the way to deal with this is to us via amendment. She's not even sure what amendment. She's talking about talking about the the twelfth amendment. I believe but basically The notion and this is still in play by the way. I know a lot of people. Have you know think it's over and moved on and it probably won't work is still in play and this is what the trump administration is trying to do. They're trying to get to the supreme court to get a finding from the court that says As as to the elections clause in the constitution the state legislatures determine the Time place and manner for elections and their argument is that Only the state legislature can make any rules laws seizures regulations having to do with with with elections and that if the governor or the secretary of state or even a state court or county election official makes any rule whatsoever. That is unconstitutional. According to the us constitution can be thrown out only the state legislature can do it and therefore under the twelfth amendment of the constitution the state legislature can come out tomorrow and announce. We have decided that. This election was done Illegally and therefore we are going to give the state of pennsylvania's electors to donald trump instead of Joe biden. yeah but Yesterday the federal appeals court not only rejected that the the injunction to overturn the certification of pennsylvania's results the judge while it was the three judge panel from the third circuit court of appeals. Who turned it down with scathing opinion. Two of the three judges were appointed. By george w bush the third one who wrote the opinion as a trump appointee and and it was a scathing. I'm reading from the washington post in a scathing twenty one page opinion. The third circuit court said the trump campaign's challenge of the district. Court's decision had no merit said charges of unfairness but calling an election on does not make it. So charges require specific allegations. And then proof. We have neither here. Voters not lawyers. Choose the president ballots not brief decide elections so this one dead. So what are they pursuing. Now this and they wanna bring this one to the supreme court. Yeah what makes you think. He's dead lock Us district court level because loss at the third circuit level from three republican judges one of them. Donald trump not locked shredded. Makes you think it is over are not taking into this guy. No jen came out the very day and tweeted onto skoda right. Yes he did. Donald trump was asked just a day or two ago You know about these cases and he says it's all going very well they are going to the us supreme court which has been stolen and yes packed with donald trump appointees. Two of the three of them are already on record as saying they believe that only the legislature can make election rules lot. So that's two of the three and that would be Cavenaugh and of course it Alito has previously suggested as much. Thomas will go along with anything that gives them four votes right there. John roberts is not batch it crazy. He'll probably go along with the with the liberal crazy wing of the party. Amy coney barrett. That's how she sounds. Amy coney that's how that's how she says her name she's like a stepford wife but let robotic like with the squeaky voice like maybe she inhaled too much. Hydrogen helium helium. Yeah amy barry bird impression by the way thank you very much well done. Yeah prouder than your donald trump impression. Oh okay yeah. i don't. I hardly ever do that anymore. Just because it kind of turns my stomach every time. I hear it yeah. I know it's ripped your package. I understand you can't continue that sort of thing for too many years. Yeah so yeah it. All comes down to her now. She may If she's smart. And by the way i see no evidence but if she's smart she'll recuse she'd have ever. I was just appointed biden involved. We end up. It's four two four. Would what what a an honorable justice would do. He's recused him or herself. Because evidently that either so you know it. It really is up to her. If that decision is made it's a radical theory was actually has never been Agreed upon by a majority of the court it did come out of The two thousand election in florida and justice rehnquist actually talked about it and talked about because remember. These guys are now pretending to be constitutionalist. Originalist textualist it. If it's written in the constitution we take it word for word literally. That's it and the story and the constitution does say the state legislature shall determine the time place and manner of elections. Well if it says the state legislature should do things that means nobody else can and anybody else who tries to make any election law is violating the us constitution that the strict construction est textualist reading which by the way amy coney barrett says she is right but then she also think that african americans are three fifths of a human being. Well she might accept that that part of the constitution has now been struck. And you believe in the constitution. Apparently you can believe that you know there can be new amendments to the co aging it. Then then it's not the original tax but the problem is that the theory amongst other things It's a crackpot theory. But they might have the votes. They need to get past. The problem is that you know. The constitution also says that congress shall pass laws for taxation. That congress is responsible for taxation. Well if they go with this theory that only the legislature of a state you know that means that a pennsylvania can with a gerrymandered republicans they legislature can come out and pass a pass a resolution that the electric shogo to donald trump. The governor cannot veto that remember. Because it's up to the state legislature so. The governor has no power to veto such a law under this theory. So in that same way. If that's what. Amy conybeare and the rest of them believe well. Congress will have the power of taxation that means congress can raise lower taxes anytime they want and the president cannot veto it. Ooh how saying this theory is if you wish to be a constitutionalist text textualist in regard to the question for you brad free. Yes and i was thinking well. The supreme court would have to take the case but it only takes four of them to hear the kate four of them to agree to and they've got four at least four wing over there so say they hear who who represents. Trump giuliani ellison. Let's see would be Swell pennsylvania case. Yeah giuliani is gonna have to get an extra an extra case of shoe die so that he looks at the at the core at the supreme court. Although if i'm not mistaken i think this court is still on zoom. All right and they don't have cameras anyway. So it's only audio only anyway right and in theory by the way I was gonna say if there's i don't know if they're suing the us than donald trump's own solicitor general would be on the other side of rudy giuliani island or see how insane but oh my god trump thinks this is going well and a lot of folks have moved on and and and maybe their right to do so but this stuff is still very much alive. And i don't know if you saw the article by kris marshall and in salon the other day longtime democratic strategists. You know who cited a nightmare on elm street and friday the thirteenth movies you know and there were nine of them in each one. You know freddie or jason was killed and then leave. Jack's sitting right there by his hand and they move onto the next thing only to be surprise later. Now if you think he got rid of donald trump you might wanna take that loaded gun out of hand after you think he's dead. Yeah well we should do that anyway. So i thanks brad. I was feeling good a yeah so sydney powell though is no longer involved. So they still claiming hugo chavez fixed the election. Yeah she horseshoes phil involved. You must be mistaken. Said she wasn't oh okay. That's where you got confused. Fired her ending. She's not part of the team. Well fired i mean. Can you fire somebody. Who's not being paid out. She was being paid giannis. I heard rudi say that donald told him that. When it's all over they'll figure it out. Sounds like a good thing. These guys are great businessmen. So i'm sure is gonna work very well for rudy. He'll get tons of money so yeah no she she. She's very much still involved. She is still taking a whole bunch of Donations to at her at her website. Which i think is defend the republic dot or where over the weekend. She filed what she calls the crack in this meeting I'm sorry at the press conference. The hair dye press com Afterwards jealous referring to sydney powell's promises said release the crack in and they described these as the crack and lawsuits. That are gonna take it all down and they filed two huge lawsuits in georgia and michigan and they are a disaster because right off the bat they misspell the word district twice right on the first day. You know the first of the thing the michigan case apparently they forgot to include spaces so all the words run together throughout the entire thing. Oh my their grammatical errors. Their senses fed just stopped but there is pages and pages and pages of claims in affidavits and There are references in any event to affidavits. We haven't actually seen those But yes. She is suing in georgia and pennsylvania. Now remind you all the have to do is get to the supreme court with anything any of these cases. It doesn't matter they just need to get to the supreme court and get a finding from five justices that it's up to legislatures and no one else to decide How elections go and who gets the electors zone and so forth so say they say do that stay. They go to the supreme court and the supreme court says you are correct. Pennsylvania's election is moot. it's thrown out still doesn't give donald trump victory in his recount in kansin this weekend for which he paid three million dollars at least in milwaukee county is complete and it it increased joe biden's lead by one hundred and thirty some odd votes so well okay so they so they win. This case in pennsylvania biden can lose pennsylvania and still win the electoral college recall. There are a number of gerrymandered state. Legislatures including slovenia's controlled by republicans in control by republicans michigan controlled by republicans. All three of those states currently have a democratic governor. Who in theory would veto any such effort but remember. It's no longer up to the governor to the state legislatures. They can buy themselves. And so this can be done in pennsylvania in georgia and wisconsin. It can be done in. Georgia can be done in arizona. They either try to award their Electors to trump slate or they can say oh. The election is completely Bogus we have to throw out our results entirely all of which as per the twelfth amendment of the us constitution and throwing things to the us house to decide who president go and if not it's not decided by a majority of the house democrats enjoy majority. It's each state. Gets one vote. Yeah and that one vote is based on who has the majority of the delegation and republicans control more state delegation so wyoming with the thousand people has as much as california california. Even though you could fit sixty six wyoming's into one california. Well they still get the same vote by the way that the problem even when we're not talking about the electoral college problem any old day. The fact that you know california has should have the power of sixty six wyoming's and we nonetheless each have two senators. That is true. That is frightening. Rule our discussion for another day. Oh my god well great. Thanks so much brad. So this is all your fault so brad brad blog dot com with your angry letters unbelievable so i guess it ain't over yet. Donald trump can still fuck us all over just as he has for the past four years. Well he's certainly going to try. Why would you stop now. And you know with evidence. Hard evidence like you have from the brad blog. How could you ignore it Once again i should note. I stand by absolutely everything that i reported back then is completely accurate. Then it is completely accurate now however it does not say what they are saying. It does exactly. So they're taking your reporting totally twisting it. Misconstruing it using it for their purposes and pushing out bullshit correct now last thought here for you from last thoughts. I have put out an invitation right. After the election when they started focusing in on the voting machines and the concerns about go minion and all man who is not actually tied to smart matic at all but when they started putting that out i put invitation to republicans. I said hey. I agree with ya if you're really worried about these private Voting vent voting system vendors in our public election having the type of obscene control. If they do then please join me in inviting Over in demanding. I should say that only hand marked paper ballots shall be used in the upcoming critical georgia's senate. Us senate runoff offline. Your critical will determine the control of the us senate. If they're really concerned about dominion join me. Demand hand marked paper ballots. Only man that they are hand counted publicly on election night. So we can't have any of these questions that they are torturing everybody with we've overwhelming response. You got overwhelming response to that right. Where actually i did really not many not many republicans you know. Cons of democrats and non republicans a few republicans. Who seem to agree. But very very few. You would think that sydney powell would be out there. Saying i agree with brad friedman. We need to get this dangerous. Dominion out of the election determined the control of the senate. We need all hand. Mark ballots hand counted on election night on january five inch in georgia. So far they have not taken me up on that invitation but it is pinned to the top of my twitter. Feed at v brad blog. I hope you will use it. Re tweeted share it with your friends and family and enemies and bring them all together. Because i'm actually. I'm not actually kidding about any of that. I would love to see that. And i would love to see republicans. Join that effort. Because that's the only way Are going to have a elections in this country that the losers can walk away knowing that they have actually lost. So i've been trying to make two really important points about all of this one just because an election can be stolen with computer software. In such a way that can't be detected and so forth that is still true true in two thousand ten. It's still true now so the right-winger saying you you believed to beckon him but you don't believe now and okay. There's just no evidence for right now but it can happen we to have solutions because it can happen doesn't mean it did happen. The other point to keep in mind is that we need a voting and election system that even if it is one hundred percent secure an accurate the public needs to know needs to be able to know that it was one hundred percent secure an accurate because if we don't have a system like that than we end up where we are right now and i've said this for years that it's not just fraud that threatens our elections it is the perception of fraud and we have secret vote-counting and secret computer software and this stuff it allows for exactly what we are seeing right now and that's what i've been working so many years to avoid not necessarily the fraud but the people who can claim there is a fraud and there's no way to defend against it that in and of itself is a grave threat to democracy have been trying to say that. I think you can attest to that nicole. And and this is exactly what. I have been worried about for twenty years. And we're seeing it in action. And the only way to ever overcome that is to make the entire voting system transparent and oversee by the public because publicans maybe full of shit in their claims here but they have reason to make these claims. Because we've allowed this to happen. Yeah and you know what if we don't take back control and get these people out of office. This is the this is. This is who will be making decisions for us. Massive influenced communist cuba and likely shine in the interference with our elections here. In the united states the dominion voting systems the smart technology software and the software that goes in other computerized voting systems here as well not just dominion or created in billions of in venezuela at the direction of hugo chavez. Make sure he never lost an election after one. Constitutional referendum came out the way. He did not want to come out okay. So there's your choice a future democracy where we stand a chance or that that that's what we're left with we take away the ability for loons and You know just clowns like sydney powell to be able to make those claims at all in the first place lease and that's how you gotta do it. You gotta get the vendors out. You have to re unprivatized our public elections. Brad friedman from your mouth to. Who's ever in charge one last job as soon. Yes so i've heard. Donald trump say that this was fraud from the highest levels real than who because who's higher than the president if there was fraud widespread fraud who was running the show. Who was the mastermind behind it. Who was who did this fraud. Who well duh. Obviously george soros and everyone else get arm. of course joan play innocent nicole. Thank you brad friedman. How could i forget george soros. How else could this end of. Course with george soros. Oh my goodness big. Thanks to brad. Friedman for hanging with me for almost an hour on saturday afternoon. That's when we record. I told him that was the big finish coming up. While i told the people in the chatroom so i yeah i don't i don't know i don't know where we go from here. It ain't over until it's over and we haven't sung yet. Oh my god all right so with that there you have it. I'm still waiting for my check. George by the way tomorrow gotta laugh will be here. I got nothing more to add. We'll talk about all the other stuff that happened tomorrow. Thank you for joining us for being here. We'll see you tomorrow with laughing by everyone. Keep the fe.
How Edgevana CEO Mark Thiele is Streamlining The Way Companies Access Data Centers
"Martini has spent his entire life in and around. It infrastructure even building his own fair share of data centers. But if there is one thing about the entire process that he finds vaccine it's the wasted time between companies starting negotiating their contracts data centers to when they actually launch so after a twenty seven year career working with other companies. He set out on his own and started ivana with a simple goal to help get companies to the edge. Faster getting to the edge may seem hard for some but it's not for lack of available capability. The problem was not that that stuff isn't available. But how do i find it. And how do. I make quick determinations about what combination of services or capabilities or partners. Do i need in order to solve the problem or create the opportunity that i'm pursuing for my business mar trained visionaries to discuss why streamlining the by and implementation process is the key to quickly to the edge plus mark touches on why edge computing continues to be on the rise and what. It leaders should be looking for in edge technology into this episode. I t visionaries is created by the team at michigan dot org brought to you by salesforce platform the number one cloud platform for digital transformation of every innovate fast. Empower every employee and skill with confidence from anywhere with a customer at the center of everything you do learn more at salesforce dot com slash platform. Welcome everyone to another episode of. It visionaries and today we have the ceo in founder of edge. Bonna marsili mark. Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me. I'm excited to join. We always let all of our gas tells us about the company work at since you're the founder we gotta know what is edge wanna edge. Drama is a little bit of a dream. Job for me i've I've spent most of my career innovating inside of other people's it organizations building infrastructure in data centers. And things like that. And and never thought i had the The polite term. I guess gumption to go out and do it on my own. But over the last five years i've been spending the majority of my time looking at technology but technology focused on on edge and my basic assumption. Was that address can be big enough. That all of the infrastructure that we have available on the planet now needs to be brought to bear and that the best way to expand the market is not by forcing everyone to build new for every opportunity that might expand to the edge but rather leverage infrastructure that has to some degree beginning to go fallow because of change buying behavior people buying for edge people buying for for digital transformation are no longer buying neighborhood data center. That's not their strategy anymore. So i thought with the the thousands of data around the world individually each one of those data centers may not seem all that important but connected they offer an enormous opportunity to the customer and people trying to deploy in the end or exploited the edge or even deploy because of greater technology adoption through digital transformation. And so i'm through vaughn. I'm trying to make that process easier. trying to make the The idea of buying complex formerly very physical very manual oriented purchases of network of data center of services of edge compute. All those things to make that much more of a of a imposible kind of best fit opportunity for the customer rather than the traditional brag. Matic let spend three months or three years going through this Trying to find what we need. And let's walk some of our listeners through this conversation because as much as we have c. suite level people. We also people that are just entering into the workforce and learn much more about technology when the key words keep own. You've used is the idea in this concept of edge. I'm gonna kinda say what i know about it. And then i'd love to hear your interpretation so the whole idea of edges that your compute resource moves closer to basically who needs it so everywhere i am instead of sending a signal back to in each queue or sending a signal back to like ashburn where all the public cloud service providers are all located at that latency and time between the moment. I want information the moment of get information. That's the whole point of edges bringing that whole resource closer to me. So i basically effectively can work through massive data sets through bigger applications through bigger utilities. Closer faster and more seamlessly. Now the other thing i understand about. Data centers is it's bought and sold kind of like real estate so that you are the reason why i bring this because you talk about how you you're approaching it in a different way and you would have to if i wanted to. Let's say locate a resource in a local data center. I have to call them up. I got to rent what they call a cage. I gotta put my equipment in there. You said network is not readily available. That might be surprising to people that even though you bought in space edge data center you would then need order connectivity. If you wanted to connect the public cloud you have to order a direct connect. That might take like months. It can take months to even get a direct line into a public cloud service. So this is where it is the idea of edges that all computing resources closer to you. But the reality of data center purchasing is that it's very piecemeal. Let's say and it's like you have to fill out orders in it takes time. It's not like public cloud services. Where i say i want. I want to spend up become. Let's say you know a server. I click a button. And it's there. If i were to build in edge compute center close to me at literally have to go shopping for equipment. I have to go is like a lot of steps. That's what i understand in the world today. Talk about how you see it. And how edge. Vaughn is going to simplify this process. Kind like what. You're talking about. A great i mean and you use stated like at least half of my problem statement or opportunity statement as i prefer to call it a relative dijana but edge computing. I mean i would only add to things flavors to what you said. One flavor is more around the fact that and this is maybe be obvious. And i just wanna stated to makes me feel better That it's more than the individual. It's also machine to machine machined. Individual is right. It's experiential It's a factory floor right. It's all of those things but what you said still obliged all of that right. It's bringing the capability to execute against those opportunity spaces closer to where the execution needs to occur and the reason it needs to occur is what creates the demand reg ride. The reason it needs to occur is. I'm grading too much data and i can't afford send data somewhere else. That's one of the main most common problems right. I mean there are large companies right now who didn't think they were going to be building edge but when they got a partway through their iot deployment there their video. is not solution. They're they're in store training programs cetera et cetera. And they realized they were grading the engine so much data from each one of the sites that they couldn't afford to back haul that data to some central location. And that's that's one problem. The other problem of course is that in many cases the allegations designed for people at the edge now or designed around the idea of being offered via low latency. so whether it's a r v are or a doing A against analytics coming off a set of factory equipment on a shop floor a managing traffic patterns in a city. Managing the distance between cars. Managing weather Cars no pedestrians in the crosswalk at the next land and turn. These are all just pieces of tens of millions of opportunity places that edge consult for but in the end it really is solving for things. It's all for Latency and it's all for Data and over and above that. It's designed around how it's going to be used much resiliency you need in it's How much do you need is all gonna be around how it will be used know. I completely agree a lot of the future. A lot of the things people are building towards are going to depend on this idea. That compute between like you said computer computer computer to enterprise computer individual whatever that may be is giving smoother faster move more data faster return speeds everything faster with consuming more data and distributing more data. So then i want to ask you how. What is his role in. Changing the way data center infrastructure. Where were you purchase data. What is von role. Gonna be in making edge compute. Come to a reality realistically. The way i see edge happening is not by some single large application. That is it you can justify spending on infrastructure for in deployment but rather by a lot of little one dollar opportunities. And why is that important. Well if wanted to enable edge and i had You know the latest pokemon game and two billion people were use it for a couple of years. I could justify putting ten racks of servers in new data centers in thousands of locations maybe to support the use of that application. Maybe i'm just making something up there on the other hand for people who don't know for sure how are how much they're Apple be adopted or the monetary opportunity associated with. That app is very small in the sense that the per customer usage value is fairly low then approaching the market can be really difficult. Even if you're if even if you were able to use the cloud provider to get to all the locations you wanted to. The initial cost of that rollout can be pretty high. And so for those folks who can't solve their problem with the The typical centralized compute infrastructure of your primary cloud providers. What i'm hoping to be able to do is is for lack of a better description Button on being able to string together the locations that you want to be able to deploy your equipment now whether that equipment is yours in partnership with some other supplier. Bill to with in partnership with edge Anyone all of those things are options but the primary goal for a drama. Israeli is to simplify how you get access to that market wise. Why is that important. What we touched on a little bit at the beginning to kind of repeat for those folks who haven't done a lot of data center purchasing it's generally speaking a very painful oftentimes serial process very contract heavy the due-diligence depending on what kind of application year to blowing the due-diligence for each data center can be problematic. And so if for the average buyer getting into one data center can take three to six months. Or what are you gonna do when you need ten or twenty one hundred centers. You can't possibly support the idea of sending teams of people around the world or teams of agents around the world To identify a you know a hundred different suppliers for your two hundred locations because of Your your location requirements and then have to worry about managing all of that due diligence managing all those contracts managing all will separate billing managing separate tools that allow for access and visibility into those data centers. All of that stuff becomes an enormous burden and back to my original point. If i'm trying to roll out just a few servers half iraq or one rack and a lot of locations. There's no way. I can afford that kind of front end of front. Loaded longtime devalue cost. It just doesn't make sense and so a drama is really trying to help solve for that problem. In and give people faster access whether they need three data centers in three specific locations or three hundred data centers in core cities across asia europe and africa. We're here to help a do everything. We can to simplify and shorten the time for acquisition. So how how does the future state gonna. How's it gonna work because like you mentioned. There's tons of service providers tons of locations. Everyone's got their own agendas contracts. Are you negotiating with all these different providers. How they have to plug into jonah. How're i'm just curious and this is what's so fascinating because anytime i think we all agree that when you can simplify a process everyone wins but the reality is you have to get. All the suppliers will bide by that. Process works because every person who ships in fulfills through amazon follows. Their rules eating goes in. That is true for every marketplace. Right uber is easy because every driver agreed to list their car to have insurance. They have unilateral support among drivers. Otherwise it can't be on platform. So is that the game plan. I'm curious how you're approaching this Because it's a massive problem. I'm curious how you're approaching solving this in making it simpler to simple the by the initial the initial effort long-term will probably morph as we get more folks on board and we get more buy in and more proof of concept but the initial focus will be. I don't want to call it a half measure but Is a vast improvement over how existing how it's done with existing process will be a form of of centralized contract management with the goal depending on the provider depending on the The unique customer requirements but the goal in most circumstances would be that the customers will end buyers use a common contract that we have developed with specific amendment opportunities for special services that might be offered by the operators but even the special services will be labeled tagged so that they can be standardized across the Multiple copies of the same contract so that the operator and the customer still know what they're buying what they're protecting from each other but from a buyer perspective the process for executing the contract and managing it after the fact is dramatically simplified. So how did you recognize. Or how did you start thinking about solving this problem of the different things that you could potentially be involved in. Because i didn't know if this was something you experienced firsthand or is something that you heard quite commonly from your peers. I was wanted to dive into how you how Aco's founders approach which problems are solved. Because of course there's tons of problems to solve. Yeah to be honest My i mean. I've i've had experience on the buy side and on the sell side right so i've i've walked from davis centers. I've built data centers. And i've worked for a data center company and i was a frankly always frustrated by some of the things that people just take for granted the time it takes to get to an agreement between an agent and a buyer and the data center supplier the time it takes to once that agreement is reached to to get to installing hardware all of those things. I considered to be real problems but they weren't. They weren't mind to solve necessarily especially after. I left the The data center business space. But i i looked at the at the larger space of of buyers and thought this can't be acceptable long-term and i'm a little bit of a data center junkie. I mean i've been rounded centers for a long time. My brother-in-law even found in an organization data center owner operators called data center pulse which we ran actively for about five years from two thousand eight two thousand thirteen. And so i have a kinship with data centers in with the folks that run in operate and sell data center space. And i thought you know the the best way for creating competition in the market and solving customer problems at the same time is to help. These data center operators be more viable invisible to the customer community in the same way that infrastructure is more viable and and opportunistically acquired by by customers now because they can acquire it either. As hyper converged infrastructure they can acquire it as a manage service or they can acquire it via cloud any one of those capabilities or options for the buyer would easily be considered a dramatic improvement. Over what we would have been doing. Fifteen years ago before the i s three instance was created or before the before the first true hyper converged infrastructure stack was created and so i'm trying to effectively bring that kind of same thought process to the data center world and the services that support the data center world. Because there's two things in the world while there's a lot of things in the world that i dislike with two of the things that i really don't like in the world is waste and waste. That has a potential negative impact on the environment at the same time right so if we don't effectively use the infrastructure we already built around the world because it's not easily consumable what's the alternative is. The market doesn't grow as fast as it could. Or people build net new and as far as i'm concerned and i'm stealing a quote from christian blahdy of microsoft but as far as i'm concerned the best data center ever bill was the data center that you don't have to build like that thought process the one thing that i wanted to add to it. Is you know since the advent of public cloud. Because i think the analogy to compare it to buying real estate is exactly the best one because i think all of us have probably either rented an apartment or purchase. A home them into it takes a long time so when public cloud i became available. And you could just you know. Oh i need storage. I just signed up for storage instantly. Got it all. I need to add a server instantly. I got. I need a web server. So i can show it a lot of people instantly got it. You know i need dns. So i can make sure my applications accessible as possible from anywhere in the world. You just turn on a couple services in public cloud now you got it whereas back in the day of course you have to rent you gotta wait and just like renting from an apartment. You'd have to wait for your contract of you'd have to commit to a certain level capacities curtin levels of storage. It's make so many commitments so public cloud of course when it first came out. Then you also have people saying oh data centers dead but then when data center when and then you also have people that also on the other side of the coin said no data center will rise public cloud. No one's ever gonna wind depend on shared services and yet here we are today. Twenty twenty in data center and cloud are on the rise. Why do you think that's happening. Yeah it will. I mean a lot of what we've been talking about is a good definition for why it's been happening right but i think it's a it's a question that many in the industry would love to have the perfect answer for my answer to why they're both on the rise is is a little bit of a combo. Try to give you maybe three or four potential answers that may in fact all be combined to create the the right answer but one is that enterprises are unlikely to as a rule entirely on meaning all enterprises. Give up all of their compute. Infrastructure is just unlikely to happen not before something really magical with centralized a where you just talk into a computer and it figures out everything else you need to do because it's that smart and you never need an application running In your building anymore and when that occurs anybody's guess but until that happens a lot of organizations for any number of reasons Whether it's protection. Because they think they should be worried about locking whether it's protection because they feel that if they give away the keys and economic sore. Opportunity changes Revealing they had will be too hard Or whether they recognize that some of the applications they have are really old and are unlikely to be updated but the data that supports them and other applications is all on premise. And if they move that data to the cloud they'll be paying for it in the cloud and they'll be paying to run it on premise. So these among other things are some of the reasons why data centers will continue to exist and continue to grow whether in the enterprise or certainly in the colo space. Now when you throw edge into the mix that exacerbates the problem or creates the opportunity depending on your perspective that says that the cloud providers and even the large data center providers as you pointed out early on albert about ashburn have tended to build in centralized locations and while midday customers enjoy very good latency to and from a public cloud in north america many customers experience North of eighty two is much as one hundred milliseconds hundred sixty milliseconds of latency to a given cloud even north america. When you think about north america sorts big country but it's also practically covered in cloud. It would seem right. And so when you think about that from a global perspective and you think about the demand for lower latency associated with edge or the amount of data that will be created at the edge in a cost in complications of attempting to centralize that data for any kind of real time. Analytics mean that data centers. That are within earshot. Most of where the customer is working or or where the machines are creating data become a and the economics of many of the biggest players their economies of scale their their actual business model doesn't easily support saying well. Now i'm gonna instead of spending another forty billion next year on building more centralized giant infrastructure in three more countries into more regions or whatever. The case may be. I'm gonna instead spend twenty billion by putting you know two hundred very small. Data centers ideal locations. Well even then two hundred locations when you're thinking about edge might be the greater silicon valley or maybe california depending on what problems you're solving the so what are you building for. And how many can you afford to build. So all i could go on with this problem statement but all of that has led me to believe that we're going to need to all of the infrastructure that we have available to us. We're gonna end up building even more. We're gonna build more networks. Were going to build more data centers but the best opportunity for us to expand of the edge market digital transformation efforts that go into unique locations around the world localized economies. That don't have excellent Cloud providers managed service providers all of these areas of opportunity for either building new or expanding on. What's already there an outcome in that comment with another a data center geek piece of information. Which is that getting into a new market. Like let's say for instance. I mean i'm a longtime california person. Even though i live in vegas right now. I lived in freemont for a long time. Let's say that. Amazon or economics decided they wanted a data center on the edge of fremont for whatever reason for edger for content or something well the effort involved in putting five or three or two megawatt facility depending on demand at the edge of fremont the effort involved in getting to the building of that data centre and the cost associated with. It is not that much different from the cost associated with building a fifty or one hundred megawatt campus. I'm not saying that to cost the same. But the due diligence the effort involved in getting power and permitting in jackson basements and identifying the right site and doing trenching and an hiring labor and all those things to get started in that location end up costing very similar to what their economies of scale model would be in building a large campus. So it's just not economical to think that cloud providers independent of partners or large data center providers like extra gears tea or whatever can afford to just randomly start building hundreds of locations around the world. Right it has to be for them to do that. It would have to be customer driven demand meaning. I have megawatt. And i'll pay you to put a data center with more capacity than that in a particular location but that's unlikely to be the driver for most edge applications so at a previous company i worked at. We talked with a lot of different people in the infrastructure space. In one of the things that they brought up to me was the fact that there are just like you said geo restrictions that prevent fast connectivity or data center buildouts. You mentioned fremont of cooper is similar. There must be something happening in silicon valley because everyone always talks how while silicon valley is. The hub of software development. Actually has slow connectivity for. Everybody people always talk about that. It's true i mean. When was the last time you tried to drive with a single provider on your phone service across all apollo alto and be able to maintain your call. Yeah it doesn't it just doesn't happen and so one of the things i think about is when people use network edge computing. They use usually really big transformational technologies. Data intensive technologies. Things like things like automated vehicles vehicles with fully automated vehicles meeting. Where does and then there will be depending on who you talk to you like. We talked earlier about debates on where we'll compute be. We'll keep the edge. This commute have to be in the vehicle which makes the vehicle the edge. But then you need network connectivity to carry all that data back to central resource that can send back any signals that say hey based on my current data analysis. You need to change your driving like this or like that you mentioned before the distance vehicles. There's a lot. Obviously that needs to happen in order for fully. Ai vehicles to happen when you think about a problem of that size in that case. Yes if you're in a dense area likelihood it works as good but no one wants to know that their vehicle doesn't work as they drive out into the country right to go as they go away from the central hobbs. Oh your vehicles automation goes down the how do you think you know. There's there's no one way to solve this problem. But i'm love to hear your opinion on how problems and solutions like that will get solved then also want to dive into your opinions on. Do you think because. I kind of feeling that. A lot of software developers are taking connectivity in connectivity. As well as how far the is actually gone there almost making assumption. That's always gonna be there. That i will be able to put compute resorts there. I will be able to have connectivity at the location when we know that. That's not quite sure yet. An instructor in the united states. And it's certainly not true. In other countries like even first world countries developed countries like brazil. There's plenty of places that don't that don't have the resources that you'd think. Yeah no. it's a great question And potentially difficult to back with a simple answer but yeah you know to your point about Like compute on the cars As an example you could say could be commuting. The car could be compute in your in. Your hand held device. It could be computed on your wristwatch. Any of those things Or even improved compute in in A solution that is in an event center that allows for a virtual visibility in no three d. visibility to the floor of the events center. So you know where your friends are. You know what though how to get to the venue that you want to get too inside the event center etc cetera et cetera. All of those things are fraternities for localized compute and edge. I think this marks opinion in mark's billion might be supported by a significant amount of history. Opinion is dead the better we make our devices. The reciprocal impact is the more compute. We need to support them. Yes at the other way around. I agree bride and so people ask me all the time of mark. The smartphone is getting so smart pretty soon. We'll just be able to do all the stuff on the no just the opposite the smarter you make it the more things you can do the more things you can do. The more things suppliers want to be able to do for you to augment the value of that device. And that's true with virtually everything i've ever worked with right. And so unless we get to the point where a city dwellers can just carry around a throw away plexiglas a computer. That's got a a chicken. The corner and the rest of it is just screen. That interacts with the surrounding environment allows your profile to make calls and get access to data and stuff like that starts to happen which it good is likely to be more more compute created in order to facilitate the capabilities the improved capabilities of computer in vehicles compute. That are in stoplights. Compute is in light bulbs. Computers in the park bench for lack of a better description of there will be just more and more of that and so and again i could bore everyone to tears with continued examples in that space but to answer the other part of your question which is about getting to the edge i think a lot of developers are in two camps. One is that they did not even sure how to get to the edge. What does that mean what what what would they do to get to the edge. Who would buy from what solution is is. Potentially the best option for me. It's not as if there's a a standard approach for building up. Ec two instance or something. You know it's not not quite the same relative to edge. Are you building with wasim where you building with. A weber calls are you building on. Top of vm. Rebuilding with micro services. Or you're going to be using land or you're gonna be using a homegrown functions as a service type of capability is data. Heavy app is if not all of these things will drive the you know not just your obviously your design requirements but what kind of vendor partners or or personal initiative you'll have to undertake in order to make it successful but that being said getting to the may seem hard for some but it's not for lack of available capability. I mean many of the companies that want to partner with jonah already or companies. That i think are doing fantastic things. Relative to the edge relative to infrastructure management a relative to new models for how infrastructure is owned even in a distributed environment and the problem for most again is a to repeat myself. Not that that stuff isn't available. But how do i find it. And how do. I make great determination about what combination of services or capabilities. Our partners do. I need in order to solve the problem or create the opportunity that i'm pursuing for my business so for our listeners dive into a little bit about your background because van that an awesome career. I won't call it long but it's a little longer and talk about your background in what you've been what you've been up to over your career that's led you to this point 'cause you had mentioned earlier before that you've you've been in the data center business quite a bit. Yeah i'm a little bit of a Unusual character in the data center space or in I should say the technology space in the sense that i started in a data center in a mainframe data center that yes. I'm that old in the late eighties. And then i got outta that business entirely in basically started my career over again at hp doing pc support. And i could barely spell. Pc at the time. I had no idea. I wasn't i wasn't a techie guy wasn't tearing apart commodores at home or building a network in my home in the eighties. Or anything. like that. I just worked on a mainframe. But when i was done i went home and watch. Tv like everybody else or read a book. And so i decided that when i left the mainframe environments of because of the acquisition by fee of our company that i should start over and start looking more modern techincal i got into client server. I quickly realized that. I was never going to be the guy that tore apart a windows. Kernels and rebuilt machines from scratch. Or or You know took loving unix. Still much that. I would sleep with With will unix doll. Next to me at night I knew i wasn't going to be that person. And so i decided. I had reached my level of incompetence and became management material. And as a manager. I was recruited. I mean before. I became manager became a manager because i was recruited by boss to start a help desk for the divisions at hp our that so i got some experience doing that and then i just expanded to taking over the team in building a web development team one of the first internal web development teams that built successful solutions during the early nineties for hp. I had global responsibilities that included places like singapore and bougainville and ipswich england and across the us and by the time hp and split. When i was still there. I'd been put into a job with four hundred employees. Not all of them were hp employees but Nonetheless four hundred people that. I was responsible for in some way across a abroad number of divisions in north america and So i've had this this across the board infrastructure experience of everything from building. Deploying a bbc and managing images on abc to to deploying in a data center to building a support solution to that works in at cetera and then after leaving hp. I joined a startup a kind of the same way. I usually buy stocks. Which is i joined the top and sold at the bottom and So i joined a network equipment startup in two thousand I was recruited out of hp and join them as their head of it and all seemed good but that only lasted for about ten months and then the bottom fell out of that market. And i was out in the cold. And i got a fairly lucky and found an opportunity as a director of infrastructure for gilead in foster city and that experience it gilead taught me as much in five years as i learned in a previous fifteen we went from two hundred million in sales in at the end of two thousand or london. Two billion in sales at the end of two thousand and five and building the infrastructure globally to support that from a engineering perspective. Which is a technical speak for lab equipment to building global networks to putting new data centers to establishing standards for a local infrastructure. And how to work. In data centers have deploy applications. And all that kind of stuff getting all that kind of experience to them Leaving that planning to take some time off but then that lasted for an entire weekend. And i got recruited to be interim director of infrastructure for Brocade and Six weeks later. They told me. I needed to become the director of infrastructure in a more permanent role. So i did that. And then i got some experience not only working in building on the team that they had there in creating better relationships between that team and the applications team and the customer base and frankly forming some fantastic relationships with some of the people i worked with there who still exists today but also being responsible for All of the activities that lead up to day one for an acquisition and in this case in acquisition that was as big maybe slightly bigger than the company. I work for brocade in the acquisition of data. And so i got a again. Just an amazing amount of experience Between those two companies together from an infrastructure standpoint took that to where i was recruited to somewhere solve infrastructure logistics for the engineering team of all things. I've got all this data center all this infrastructure experience. And i'd been vm fan boy since two thousand and two. So i thought okay. I gotta take this job so i went over there and and tried to solve their a logistics problem for getting engineering equipment purchased input into the data center and managed to get that from ninety seven days down to about thirty three days over the course of my first couple of months on the job but then realized that they had no department That that owned responsibility for data center. So i built a department and then built a strategy and then built data centers for vietnam where they didn't have anybody worried about asset management across. It in engineering. So i built a department for that. They didn't have common function for integration of of acquisitions Every time they did it it was like it was starting new each time so i built that and so i again a tremendous amount of experience over just a brief period of time. Vm-ware little over two years When then left and joined a friend start up a cloud management company and these guys are so far ahead of their time. I mean i could still barely spell cloud at the time and and they were already doing policy and governance for data sovereignty across multi cloud environments and stuff. It's two thousand and dan and and that was really. The very problem is that they created a solution for a problem that nobody knew they needed yet and wouldn't know they needed for another eight or nine years and so that was problematic but managed to get recruited out of there to work at data center company in las vegas. Which eventually how. I ended up in las vegas and again got more experience in the data center. Space learn some fantastic new strategies and capabilities in the data center world and worked on projects that involve building in milan and thailand and Help build the ecosystem of suppliers within the data center. And so just all of those things. Yeah long story. Short brought me to working. At a container management company managed and owned by darren collison where my ideas around edge really began to take shape and why i say i'm weird. Why my background is strangest. The sense that. I'm not a data center geek in in truth because i couldn't talk to you about the details of air flow management or. I couldn't build a a line wire diagram for the power distribution in your data center. Nor could i build the software that manages something like a the very beginning of amazon's cloud but what i can do fairly effectively across cloud infrastructure data centers and edge is help people figure out the best way to utilize those technologies determined the best ways to deploy them determine the best ways to own them efficiently Help determine the best ways to operationalize them and make sure that they actually bring real value to the business. That's incorporating their use and That's kind of how we got to where i am today. No i love it. In every single place you went like you were very clear. In describing the scaling mode. I think that was like the common unanimous themes like this level of scaling requiring more infrastructure as writing experience like a listeners. Also know that mark got signal. I mean this guy you have. You were an advisor in this subject to so many startups as well or different companies. I won't calm startups. there's years you're leaned upon quite a bit for this level of expertise. So i appreciate you doing the show with us today. Dr barbara shit. That thank you know. And i i enjoy contributing to the industry Whether it's an industry body like being on the board of cnc for Helping out as the chair for the technical committee at the international data center authority those and and advising young startups Or even midsize companies is something that i really enjoy will listen mark right now. It's time for our listeners. Now you've share some of your business experienced time for them to get to know you a little bit more personally. It is time for the lightning round. The lightning round is brought to us by salesforce customer three sixty platform the number one cloud platform for digital transformation of every experience mark. This is where we ask you. questions about. Things are interested in beyond cloud and edge data center. I'll start with your twitter profile. It says that you You list a couple different things on it. That are unique or fun. Scotch your foodi cigars and coffee. Tell me what your favorite scotch. My favorites guys. If i just had to pick one all the time it would be mcallen. Eighteen probably both for a combination of flavor profile and cost naff. You're going to have a nice mcclellan eighteen. what are you eating with it. 'cause you're a foodie as well. Yeah i to be honest. i don't eat a lot while i'm drinking scotch. Okay are often. If i'm consuming anything. It might be a cigar with the scotch. And that's a common pairing to then i'm going to have to ask you. What your favorite stogie again. If i just had to pick one it would be a a cuban cohiba cohiba. Excuse me see glow for. That's my single favorite cigar. Montecristi number two is fantastic. There a bunch of other fantastic cigars. They don't all have to be cuban. But if i had to pick just one that would probably be navigated a great time to be a foodie. Where what your favorite restaurant to eat at while vegas vegas does have a lot of great restaurants you know i'm like most of us taco tuesday is something of a national holiday right so you know i could pick like michael menas restaurant inside. The balaj is fabulous. I've been eating at restaurants You know since he was the head chef. Aqua in san francisco so i love his co. gain needs something of an artist and there are other fantastic high restaurants. I mean a cut in the venetian from a stake standpoint or even michael. Menas steakhouse in Mandalay bay if you're looking for a fantastic experience in an amazing stake of these places are just ballast for japanese. Thai in japanese mizumaki's in the win is fabulous. But if you're looking for just really really good japanese at a very good price you go to soho sushi on John's and if you want that killer taco you're really just have to have that amazing i'd have it al pet store with everything on it street taco you go to taco taco henderson. I love it. I love it you got you. Got your gotta recommendation. It sounds like for just about every cuisine every price point. Oh absolutely ask me about tie asked me about you. Know you name it italian. Open something for you for sure. So the next time anyone goes to vegas and you know mark hit markup will give you nice recommendation as a tech leader. We assume you also consume in utilize quite a lot of and gizmos. What are some gadgets and gizmos that you are really excited about whether you already own them or you're looking for them You know being available to market you know. I'm i'm excited and a little bit disappointed in my latest acquisition of an iphone twelve. Oh really yet got to hear about this. Yeah i'm really excited about the camera. I mean i just. I love the camera. Although in some lovely pictures. I've got to figure out how to of either apply the right filters or get the camera to take the picture so it doesn't look artificially lighted right but realistically it. Their cameras hajek in. I mean even to the point of because it's ditches the pictures together taking What otherwise would be you know fuzz or out of focus portions in cleaning them up as part of the process Is just amazing but the phone itself has not has not come without problems associated with the still getting screen locks occasionally battery. Life isn't quite what i was hoping. And i've also been a mac user for a long time and I i was a pc user for many many years before that came to really enjoy using the mac but again not super. Happy with the mac Thirteen inch the battery. Life has been. I'm lucky to get two or three hours out of it. If i'm doing video and stuff without a connection but other than that From a technology. I mean i love. I love the The tech going to smart homes. But i i'm frankly i'm terrified and things like echo and And google talk and things like that because for some reason i know that is collected. Everywhere are already but it just scares me to think that there's something in the house listening to me all day long and it's not just my cell phone multiple devices at any point this or if you when we talked to see so. They often talk about security entry points. We talked to one of the top people at barracuda. He's like every time you bring a smart device into your house you're just opening doorway. There's no way there's no way. I'm putting my door locks on on somebody else's computer. I'm just. I'm not doing it. Not yet will listen mark man. We appreciate you sharing your vision sharing your background. Your history of what data center this. Thanks for sharing what you think ivana can do for for. Cio's everywhere that are looking to easily by an access compute or whatever they need to get move closer to the edge and up for all of our listeners. If you ever in touch if you're ever in vegas now we know mark bringham mcclellan eighteen. He'll never turn that down absolutely. Bring the sugano four right and if you need a recommendation. He's your man. He definitely knows where to go. Get whatever cuisine at any price point in vegas absolutely. I appreciate that mark expert visionaries. Now thanks for having me. I really enjoyed it.
