You can't be flexing on the Graham this hard. Girl, they're going to be like I mean 'cause. You can't really launder your money when you're showing that you're spending all of it like right. You're supposed to launder it in a way that like. makes. It look like that's how you honestly earned it. And then you can spend this amount. Have a legitimate business. No, I totally agree with you. So on his account he would write caught a little comments like started out my day having Sushi down at Nobu in Monte. Carlo Monaco then decided to book a helicopter to have facials at the Christian Dior spot in. Then ended my day having champagne in Gucci. Girl! He would post stuff like this on instagram. If you are a criminal, you cannot just be letting people know your whereabouts. No you really can't. He's thinking like. Why are you dropping pan on Instagram to flags? Crime. It's. Time, you can't be doing this. Yeah, it doesn't really make any sense I mean. Don't you think if you were gonNA launder like this you would have to. Live within the means of your fake job. A smart person would or if you are going to buy this shit, you don't take photos of everything you've ever purchased and get two point five million followers on instagram. There are photos of him. Displaying multiple models of bentleys ferraris Mercedes and rose worse cars, including the Hashtag all mind now his flex group I told you he started flexing in front of the refrigerator. He kinda grew alike all okay mound flexing in a nice hotel room, or there's a curtain behind me and I'm showing off my outfit, or what have you then? He moved up to imposing in front of all these expensive cars. There was an interim period when his flex was not that good that I just keep thinking of this one photo of him in front of a refrigerator rang overstocked shirt for Sachi belt for socks, shoes and He had his key to his mercedes-benz like the key fob. He put it in his pocket in a way that the key fob with the Mercedes logo in the photo, so it was like the keys like hanging out his pants a little bit. Oh Girl! Do it right? Look in the mirror. Right or just don't put your keychain in this. We know you have a Mercedes like why are you wearing that like? It's an accessory, so he's. He was trying to hang out like look. I have just you know. This is the car and driving later? Yes, that was exactly what it was so gross. It's just. I don't know it's it's such a fine line of like like myself and always says like. Don't talk about it. Be about it. Be Rich, but like don't be gross rich, because then it's just like what are you doing? I don't know not not not gross rich but like. No style, no like subtlety rich. Yeah, it's like you don't handle tastes, so his instagram had an email and phone number save to the account for security purposes. Hush puppy! Why don't you have a burner phone for your instagram? Federal officials got that information in the link that email and phone number two financial transparency transactions transfers with people. The FBI believe are his co conspirators so bra. You don't have like a dummy enough for your instagram. You're using your crime email. For Your Instagram, will you log in? It's like a puppy at crime dot com. You use a net email this is. No one knows his name is at the tea. So. They didn't know his name for a minute, but hush puppies, obviously a nickname, but they realize that this was probably the guy they got in touch with instagram. And because it's the FBI, they were like instagram. Mark Zuckerberg's asked they were like hey, suck handover. This man's email and his mark, Zuckerberg. He's like okay, but you got my back next time right right because last time you guys didn't have my back okay. I ran all of those fraudulent political ads. Nobody stood up for me. Yeah! So! It's like a break hands over the retina scan and the Budi Hall and everything else that he has of ours to the FBI, and this email is linked to all the crime he was doing which is fucking stupid. His apple and snapchat records also provided information that helped investigators confirm his identity address communications and communications with other suspects, so he was anonymous to the government. Until instagram guys we've talked about this, you cannot be a criminal and very loud on instagram. Omar Gone. This is so sad. The investigators used his instagram birthday celebration photo to verify his date of birth on a previous US visa application. Of this feels like I. Post a belated birthday photo. Like how can you confirm this man's birthday with his instagram post? Yeah I mean I don't even know how much I would trust Instagram, but I mean hockey. Be this rich and not have some kind of footprint bigger than a girl. Go to the Strip club in Houston and sit there. And Have A. What's crazy is if he didn't have instagram, he likely would not have gotten caught. But that's the gag is like you're the FBI. Go go go to go to the Strip club. said there for a month. Wait for him to show up. No the FBI now has instagram, so they're scroll in just like we are. The feds are scrawling girl. There's literally d'appel gainers of US and FBI going. ooh, ooh, and he should not have warned that with those shoes anyway but like. Right like? Too much, but okay, we got his birthday. Hey, take damn, so just guys. The feds could be scrolling your instant at anytime. Don't do crime and also do it for the Graham. You can't do both. You can't so girl when he gets put in. Prison is GonNa last words that I did it for the ground. As. He's loving drug I'd do it again. I mean I wonder if they're going to donate some of his closed. Because they I mean, he really has not all of them, but some beautiful clothes does not going to go on a police action. What is that action and he does that adult rich man? Turtleneck thing which I love. I love a good turtleneck on a grown man. I do. It you know, but he's actually added jail right now, Or actually got transferred. Is what I believe is happening, so will refer hush puppies lawyer. Gal Plesetsk Ski told the BBC that his client who post on instagram about his extravagant lifestyle was not a criminal and made his money legitimately. He is social media influence with millions of followers, moons of people that respect and love him, and he loved them, and that's what he did in today's society. That's obvious this so now. They're trying to say that. His two million followers are the reason that he can flex and it's not girl. I have two million followers. I don't have this car, so let me tell you. Rolls Royce to. Like get real people are not rich. We're having two million dollars. This right, but his lawyers trying to make it seem that way Mr possessed. He's not a hundred percent familiar with social media, and his children consider him too old, but he knows that's how people make money today, so he's like no, he's an influence. That's why he has five Rolls Royces and a plane. I'm telling you. Every influencer is in a plane with a Louis Blanket Reading Forbes. That's what they do right. I mean a lot of them do, but I guess they don't necessarily own the planes. He says lawyer says in my opinion, the FBI the government here acted illegally when they kidnapped him from Dubai without any legal process to do so there was no extradition. There were no legal steps taken. There was no court documents filed. It was simply a call to the FBI. He is not a citizen of the United States. The US had absolutely no authority to take him which sounds like the US like we? We don't follow laws. Laws are out. You know he's also rich so like he's also sort of outside the law I mean if he was he was..

Psychiatrist Dr. Mark Goulston - Real influence and Training Yourself

"You're like you're like. Drinking from a fire. I'm apple. Ramp Myself Up I. was I can't take a nap on your show. That's for sure. I want to demonstrate something because there's a saying at least in Hollywood I'm not that far from it even though we're all isolated. It's better to show than to tell so. I'm going to demonstrate something far. Listeners in for you about how to be more influential. One of the things unfortunate to do is i. On on break now, but I breakfast would Larry King every day. Although we're doing zoom calls now and something. I've noticed about Larry because Larry eighty-six. He's still going strong. Still has a show. It streamed call Larry King now on home on the on the Internet and something I've noticed what has made Larry's such an icon. Is. Here's A. Plus after. and not a minus sir, and not a topper. What that means is when he listens to people. He adds to what they're saying. He doesn't a minus it he doesn't. Get Defensive. He doesn't give advice. He doesn't give unsolicited advice on his shows, so nobody's afraid. They're going to get a GOTCHA. And he's not a topper. If you say I if you say Oh, I went to the mountains, he he's not going to say oh. That's very nice. You know we went to Europe. And, so I'm going to be a plus to something. You just said I. Hope this will add value. You're listening because you mentioned something about training and I was thinking as you were talking about and I'm. And I'm reminded of a fellow named Dan Sullivan. Dan Sullivan found something called the strategic coach and part of what Dan said is what life get comes down to his habits. Happy People have different habits than unhappy people. Successful people have different habits than unsuccessful people. And he said what a habit is is it's a discrete piece of behavior that you repeat over and over again until it becomes a habit. And it takes about a month, and in other words you train on that and you repeat on that takes discipline, but over time you internalize it, and it becomes more natural, and then you can learn another habit now why this is important under stress because I'm am a psychiatrist, but I'm also a passionate about neuroscience. Is. What happens is when we're under stress and who isn't. We have you've all heard of your adrenal glands? And what happens is your adrenal guns. Put out something called Cortisol. High Cortisol is high stress and what happens is your high cortisol triggers something in your brain called your middle and Migdal as part of your emotional brain, and when that high cortisol goes up. What happens is it triggers a migdal hijack and what that means. Is Your Migdal shunts blood away from your thinking brain. Into your survival brain and guess what taps into your training. It will tap in to what you've been trained to do almost automatically. Do you think NBA stars when. They think between shots. No, it's training and they've been trained. What what's the saying? It May Have Been Stephen, Covey senior, or someone said you need. What is it ten thousand? What does it take to be come an expert? He said was at ten thousand hours. As a ten thousand hours or know that's probably more training in many of us however. Yeah thousands of hours. Thousands of hours and what happens is you become an expert at it, so you don't even have to think when you're faced with a situation, so I can't emphasize what Jay is saying. Strongly enough train train train train so that you have many many options, no matter what something whatever is. Facing you years ago I, was a fan of tiger woods during his heyday, and it was interesting when someone asked him. How do you play around the Gulf? He says. I've hit every shot possible ten thousand times, so he's an expert in every shot. He said every time I hit a shot. I don't race ahead I. don't worry about it because I know. I've trained and hit whatever SEAN I'M GONNA face. Ten Thousand Times and he says what I do is i. just you know, have a nice walk dot, breathe and feel okay. Don't worry I get on top of the shot I. Look at where I'm GonNa next hit it I know I've hit it at ten thousand times. I look at the ball and I. Just say one word execute. And so I love what you're saying about. The Training Training Training and And I know for a lot of listeners. In these times you're overwhelmed. OVERWHELMED WITH! I can train and I'm just trying to make it through the day. I'll tell you another bit of training. That I learned from a friend of mine. His name was Bob. ECKERD he was the CEO of Mattel. And I asked I asked Bob. How do you deal with stress? and. I'll tell a quick story if that's okay, sure absolutely story. So he told me. He said that before he wasn't Mattel and he's left Mattel. Now is an investment company, but he really turned mattel. Ron Big time. And he said before that he was the CEO of Craft in Chicago and when he started at kraft, he was I may president of the cheese division. And in two months time, the dairy prices went up. And so craft, Gary. Prices went up, and then they went down, but it was written into the bylaws of craft that they didn't lower their prices, so the independence lowered the prices when the prices went down, but kraft didn't. And he had no say over that he was just the president of the division. He unwritten all the protocols, and so the newspaper there was all these headlines. Heads are GonNa Roll at craft. It's going to be the end of craft. Because Cheese was a big division biggest. Division. And he told me he said you know. I was just in a funk and staring. Into the TV screen on a Sunday and the. Coach of the Cincinnati Bengals Sam Wash. And taken the Bengals to the Super Bowl two years earlier, they'd lost, but he took him to the Super Bowl. But this year they had lost ten games in a row. And Bob said I'm just staring at the TV. And the report says to. Sam, so Sam. What are you GONNA do. You're going to be fired on Tuesday. What do you think about that? and Bob said it was as if he was speaking to me. Sam Weiss looked out on the television and said. You know what I'm going to be fired. On Tuesday I know I'm going to be fired on Tuesday. Everybody knows I'm going to be fired on Tuesday But, that doesn't matter. What matters is what can I do between Sunday and Tuesday to make the Bengals a better team? So what Bob adapted I think it's a great philosophy to get through stressful times, and he used it to get through rough times at Mattel. Is. He said before he goes to bed. He says to himself, and he writes down. What can I get done? That's different. Than what can I do, but what can I get done by the end of tomorrow? To Make Mattel, a better company. What can I get done by the end of tomorrow to be a better husband to be a better dead? And when you write that down when you train yourself to get into that habit to it for thirty days, it'll become natural. You can go to bed. Easier, you can change it when you wake up in the morning, but again it's one of those trainings. What can I get done? To Make My. To make my team more successful to make me were successful. If I'm looking for a job to be a more effective and looking for a job so right that. That question before you go to bed. Train yourself to do it. And you might be able to get to sleep without having to take some of those magic. His name is Dr Mark Allston. A. By the way I did not know he was going to do this and it was better than I could ever. Swore. WE'RE WE WE? I know we're. GonNa talk about this book real influence.

Barr says FBI tried to lay a "perjury trap" for Flynn

"Well Michael Flynn is finally free from the department of justice and the FBI you know they really destroyed his life at Mattel intent telling you all about Michael Flynn here in the last couple of days as has all the host on W. B. A. P. of course this is been an ongoing story they absolutely destroyed his life your member Michael Flynn he was there in the trump administration and they really went after him with an intensity and vigor and the reason why they did was because they were trying to destroy not only Michael Flynn but the trump administration now remember the lead up to all of this the FBI here in the last several days was found to have tried to set up Flynn you remember the notes that they found they were finally released but the hand written notes that basically proved that the FBI we're trying to set him up to why they call it a perjury trap so that they could either get him fired or arrest him now my point with the whole Michael Flynn story is that they're trying to get him fired or arrest him get him to lie whatever wise so that they could continue down the path of the Russian Russian investigation and ultimately the Muller investigation see that's what they were trying to do the big question here with Michael Flynn is how high up did all of this go get it go all the way up to the office of Barack Obama and conversely Joe Biden see this has a lot of people on the laughter saying you know what this is all such old news Michael Flynn whatever this doesn't matter it does matter it matters because of Joe Biden it matters because Biden has been running partially on his eight years as vice president with Barack Obama so if Biden was in on the whole Flynn perjury trap thing which I believe that he was then that matters right now I mean to me it matters anyway but if I'm gonna sit here and argue with some of these leftists who you know would say Michael Flynn the whole thing doesn't matter you know if he pleaded guilty anyway well that doesn't matter the reason why Michael Flynn pleaded guilty was because he was losing everything do you know Michael Flynn is four point five million dollars in legal fees that's what the FBI did to an innocent man it is absolutely abhorrent and so the president heard that Michael Flynn the charges were being dropped against him and he was ecstatic I didn't know that was happening at this moment I felt it was going to happen just like watching and seeing like everybody else does he was an innocent man he is a a great gentleman he was targeted by the Obama administration yeah yeah again very big news and what they wanted to do was they wanted to again continue down the path of the Russian investigation and ultimately lead to the special counsel investigation which ultimately blew up and the F. B. I.'s face but the whole point is that they were trying to destroy president trump's first term they wanted a high jacket because he was going to dismantle Obama's policies and they didn't like that the deep swamp the deep state in the swamp they absolutely wanted to do whatever they could to derail the charges and so now the to derail the trump administration and so now the DOJ said in dropping the charges in this was earlier today this is a quote the announcement came in a court filing after a considered a review of all the facts and all the circumstances of this case including newly discovered and disclosed information as the department put at DOJ officials said they concluded that Flynn's interview by the FBI was untethered to you and I'm justified by the FBI's counterintelligence investigation into Mr Flynn and that the interview was conducted without any legitimate investigative basis yes in the end here's the frustrating thing they knew that they didn't have anything on Michael Flynn yet they continue down that road and here's another question why in the hell did it take so long for them to finally the DOJ to finally drop the charges why is this taking so long I believe they were forced into it I believe that when the notes were discovered in in some of these other and this some of this other exculpatory evidence was discovered and that that exculpatory evidence you know evidence that would prove that Michael Flynn was innocent of all of this was kept under wraps then the department of justice they had no choice but to raise their hands and say yeah we screwed up you know this was Obama's FBI this was James Comey's FBI and you know Christopher Wray and all these folks currently leading the FBI you know they're out there saying well now yeah you know we we've been looking at this we've been watching this we've been considering what to do with all of this ride you were absolutely shame to what I would say because a lot of Republicans are now saying that the F.

11 Trivia Questions on Back to the Future

"What are we doing today? She goes. What do you think we're doing? We're going to be in the house just hanging out coming up with projects for the kids watching stuff on TV and walking from room to room looking around walking out of that room. Go into the next room she goes. We're we're doing that. It's the that's the whole thing so I hope you are finding ways to switch up your routine because I need to get out of. The House is Weird in California. Because it's very cloudy and kind of colder and It was nice for a couple of days. I did some hikes. That was cool. I felt like everything was normal to degree But when it gets kind of cold and dreary it's it's really hard to get motivated to do stuff I keep talking about this Trivia Book that I WanNa right and I should have the thing done by now I only have about. I think eleven or twelve stories out of about fifty stories that I wanNa tell in this book written down and I could easily if I just focused on it. Get the entire thing done which I wanted to do over like the next nine months. I could do it in one month so I really need to jump start myself and right the rest of this book if you're interested in what it's about it's going to be kind of a trivia memoir where I talk about hosting Trivia very interesting scenarios and then I tell a story and Then there's a little quiz based on stuff that happened in the story afterwards so for example one time. I met Harrison Ford Trivia Party. I tell that story and then I have a quiz on Harrison Ford related stuff and then some Harrison Ford inspired trivia team names in different things like that so it's kind of like a travel book.

It'll be about ten sections of probably five stories on each section each and there should be at least five hundred. Trivia questions in there for you guys to play along with two and hopefully this is pretty cool little calling card for me to give people as an e book or to sign copies of a physical book and get out there and do a little. Bit Of Book Touring. So that'll be something for two thousand. Twenty one.

Exploring The Canopy With 'TreeTop Barbie'

"Hey everybody matty Safai. Here was shortwave reporter. Emily Kwong today. We thought you might appreciate a little joy in your life especially now that's right here on short wave we want to bring you up. Does it explain what's happening with the corona virus but also episodes that feature other interesting science like this one from the very first week of shortwave. It's probably one of my favorites. Oh yeah mine too. It's got rain. Forests SLINGSHOTS A DECADE-LONG CONFLICT WITH BIG Barbie bad gets rope burn. Let's not love the rope? Burn Kwong it's clearly the roburt. These are the sacrifices you make manny right onto the show enjoy. You're listening to shortwave from. Npr One day this past summer I got to visit a rainforest. Okay that's licorice fern. That is the scientific name. Is Paula podium vulgarity? Ecologist NENAD CARNEY. This is called sledge. This is called Club Moss. It's actually very primitive Plant leaning has been studying in exploring ecosystems like this for thirty five years. Okay so that is called Bikram. That's another species of Moss. I like to call it pledging moss. Just because it's so soft and so please so much like a little pillow. Here's Flynn's this is recommend trim. There's like three four different species of MOSS RIGHT THERE. Couple other things about this rainforest. You're probably thinking rainforests so tropics now. We were in the Pacific Northwest Olympic National Forest in Washington state and it's called a temperate rainforest A. Rainforest because we get it's characterized by having a lot of rainfall there about one hundred twenty inches a brain a year. The other thing about this trip to the forest. Is that all these plants so see how soft these mosses are yes. Don't you just WanNa sleep on them? Yeah all of new weenies. Decades-long work. Okay I'M GONNA come up side by side with you. All of it is about wow sixty feet off the ground for many. This is awesome awesome. This is called the canopy pretty much everything above the forest floor all the way up to the tops of the trees. Come up with me now. Little Rope canopy. Here is a dizzying thicket of bright green leaves and Mosses and ferns all bathed in sunlight. And we knew very little about it because the canopy is literally called the last biotic frontier. It's been so poorly studied. It really aren't very many people who studied the canopy. Feel like when you say. The last biotic frontier should look off into the distance. Ready to the last biotic frontier so today on the show pioneering scientists Malini non Carney on the canopy plus a little later on in the episode weenies decades. Long fight to get more women into science. And how she found unlikely ally in Barbie. Yeah I thought it was weird too. It's not that we're the sticker up and you're listening to shortwave from NPR. Alright so let's back up down back on the ground in Olympic national forest. Malini told me that in the grand scheme of things canopy sciences. Actually PRETTY NEW. People have been studying forest for centuries but it's only been in the last twenty twenty five thirty years that people have actually climbed up into the forest canopy to understand the environment up in the tree tops. One of the hurdles for scientists was literally just figuring out how to get up to the tops of the trees so noelene a few friends figured out a way to adapt some mountain climbing techniques to get up into the canopy and that means shooting ropes into the trees. So I invented this thing called the master caster which is metal rod and we welded it so it has this little hole here for the line. Basically this master caster thing is part fishing. Rod Part slingshot. This looks like a garage sale. A fourteen year old boy's dream could both and and so with a fishing weight loaded into the slingshot. So I'm thinking right up there. Malini cast masterfully. You we set the ropes now on your weight on this got harnessed in step down and then started the long hard process of inching up the road. You're going to go into a crouch and lift your legs up. That's kind of like a caterpillar and then San exactly you. Well you know. I've got to kind of over. The course of her career researching canopies in the Pacific northwest as well as in the forest of Costa Rica. Malini has documented all kinds of things about the canopy sixty feet up this giant maple tree. She shows me one of the cooler ones. Just looking at the underside of these mosses like. There's this canopy soil Allowing Dig Samat over here. Malini peels back a thick fistful of Moss from the branch on the tree. Instead of bark we're looking at tightly packed bed of Brown dirt. I mean that has actual soil that is basically composed of the dead and decomposing. Moss's that live up here and there are like earthworms that live up. Here are a big round up exactly. It's called into canopy soil. Wow look at that. And it's a weird you know you hear smelling the soil smell. But you're you know you're up sixty feet above the forest floor. So it's it's this sort of whole world that the canopy creates they're living plants or mosses there ferns their soil and it's all kind of invertebrates that live here birds that forage for these invertebrates that live in the canopy soil. So it's like this microcosm this mini co system. That's going on kind of independent of the forest floor. But at the same time interacting the forest as a whole of course today canopies all over the world face threats from climate change from logging fire deforestation and a lot of work. Now is about trying to figure out what would happen. If we lost such a complex interconnected ecosystem. I think it's important for canopies to be as intact as possible. Because they do foster so much diversity that you can get seventy species of mosses on a single tree and each of those mosses sort of living life with its insects and invertebrates and supporting birds. And so it's just part of this sort of whole cycle of what makes a primary important. Here's another thing leany discovered when she was first getting started in canopy research. There were very few women. Scientists doing this kind of work and so she set out to change that this was. This was just a fabulous day. That happened in my lab forest. Canopy lab undergraduates worked there. My graduate students would work me and we were just kicking around by these. Look how could we make the forest canopy more meaningful to mattress other scientists but to regular people like how about young girls? They need encouragement. And somebody said. Well what about Barbie aright pause Barbie time because she was busy enough helping to basically create an entirely new field of scientific study in the early two? Thousands deleted decided. You know in her free time she would try to create market and get into the hands of little girls and boys everywhere treetop Barbie. What took iconic doll which is so symbolic of what young girls aspired to. What if we just put this shell around her? Which is a canopy biologist? So called Mattel the company that owns Barbie and then when I propose this idea they said no no no. We're not interested that has no meaning to us We make our own barbies. You know you can't do this. Forget it forget it. So that's when we said well. Why don't we just do it ourselves? And if Mattel's not going to take a couple of trips to goodwill later to get some recycled barbies with the Angela's making our top barbies. And I started bringing campy Barbie along with me and you know talking to my fellow scientists and saying look guys we not only have to do our good science we need to start encouraging people from outside science and and this is one way that we might do it trees are wonderful arenas for discovery this is Malini is two thousand nine tedtalk which by the way is a hugely nerve wracking thing for scientists. And you're hooked up to this hands-free Britney Spears Mike to give a talk. That will basically be your top. Google hit for life to stand on stage. Showing off a little plastic treetop Barbie. Should I really be spending time with this? Are PEOPLE GOING TO THINK? It's weird that me as a scientist and me as a woman scientist is a brown woman. Scientist is spending her time doing this. they're sort of risk. That goes along with that but I felt that the potential good that could come out of it of providing a real role model for a little girl. Who doesn't even know that that the canopy exists to study. You know like when I was a kid and so if that can happen then I think it's worth the risk what we do my students in my lab and is we buy barbies from goodwill and value village. We dress her enclosed that have been made by seamstresses and we send her out with a canopy handbook. And my feeling is thank you that we've taken this pop icon and we have just tweaked her a little bit to become ambassador who can carry the message that being a woman scientist studying treetops is actually a really great

What it Means to Be Creative with Vanessa Dewey

"Vanessa is as a community builder marketing professional and currently works at Adobe as the senior project marketing manager. That's a mouthful yes it is. Hopefully this is not actually. I just left on Friday. So it's all new. Okay so my guess my first question it was gonNA be anyways sort of if you WANNA talk to us a little bit about what you're doing. Now what your journey has been up to this point and what you're going to be doing. I guess now in the future shirt. We'll definitely I apologize about that brand new. Everything's happened so quick. No not necessarily I looked at today just to make sure everything was updated. But we don't don't always update linked in with our life right. Yeah especially when things just happened. I'm a little slow to that right now. Yeah no worries I guest. I'll just say overall my career path is definitely not linear. I'm definitely not tick the box type of creative My background is in graphic design for about eight years years. I was in house designed for Mattel branding and packaging orca across multiple verticals of the play patterns of toys And then I serve at a certain time of my career halfway through at during that venture at Mattel I decided to served take something else because I realized there is no outside. Craig is coming inspire a creative community of four hundred to six hundred plus creatives in Los is Angeles so I took on while having a full production schedule realize I need to take on and create the speaker series grassroots and over the course of five years built up from from quarterly to buy weekly bringing design. Thought leaders like Brian Collins. To wwl moment I Leela Nash. Meyer wow what a great idea it was it. It was in theory but that's was in essence in two thousand thirteen. When I started doing that it start planted the seeds because at the same time to I had a thought? What would you next my career so for me? I want is see and found other opportunities to infuse leadership and other types types of opportunities to help elevate and evolve myself as a creative and as a leader so the speaker series is also you know as you mentioned. Aig I got involved. volved in the Los Angeles chapter quite a bit and over the years that served helped me in an in a way to supplement where I was looking for that I was in say per se getting as IC Mattel not to say that. The community wasn't amazing but still like that extra in two thousand sixteen. I think this is just a year or so before I bet you my life I hit my. What's next month in my career? I was no longer inspired and just I could do packing branding. But it just wasn't singing to me in my God and then at the same time I decided to leave. My husband divorced him so so there's so much and what I ended up doing was professionally. I was able to take a role and evolve it and creates a so. I guess that's experiential educational and inspirational called the hub ultimately that's supported by four hundred six hundred plus Craybas at the headquarters of Matale. So I continue my speaker series and added onto that by Craig. An Internal Speaker series support at highlight creatives leaders in our community. At mattel a podcasts. Help my L. A. D. My led with crave career path and as a side note this role actually dead. The COO transitioned into H.. Ourselves and learning development so I go home ready packaging to hr so that lasted for almost two years. And I quit when I went into that role I went to a w maximum San Diego and one of my friends is one of the community managers for the creative jams community on team and I went up to see if there was any inside of eighteen was coming enterprise side so as it as it turned out they were working towards that end in summer of two thousand seventeen. I was part of the pilot for Adobe Craig Gems Enterprise Foul. KABC's what okay. So crazy is who don't know okay crave GM's as core. It's part is a to park. They have experienced part inspiration apart hands on Their community and there's also enterprise now but basically basically the format is you have teams of craters two to four depending varies but having teams creatives have asserted brief learn a certain tool from adobe. CBS Adobe Dobie Stockton W rush and then have an our tasks over three hours to address the brief while leverage these these tools rules you then also bring in thought leaders such as local design leaders or even just creative leaders anybody to EXPARC inspiration depending on what you want the talk about and the theme and also the end you bring in all craters and having do presentations of their final deliverables also Two percent of the teams and there's usually prizes and also it's A. It's a nice experience. Yeah it's a hack actually creates a little more elmo fun and not just a hack no. It's just a lot of fun. I actually participated in a creative jam here in Albuquerque. Oh Yeah my team member and I actually won the the choice choice award or whatever the thing is but yeah. I just wanted to kind of explain what that is for the people that don't understand we haven't had one around here in a while so just options is to explain a little bit but so when it happened was coming into twenty twenty eighteen. This program was then adopted onto the Create a quote enterprise side the marketing so I was brought over to join the team. And that's where I ended up so what from branding. Packaging Design Zayn into more of a creative HR learning development role and then that translates very well into this Role within the enterprise side and had it was a great opportunity. What I did was each of basically what I was doing it Mattel's then able to translate across in essence to different customers? Key customer customer so over the course of the first year has A. I was lucky enough to be able to help. Establish that in Europe so I was working with customers curate atheist. BESPOKE EVENTS FOR BBC Vice Media Sky TV to to pet lebrons. I did some in North America to and then I came back to North America Because to focus more on this last year in particular last feels those focusing on North America helping out the team here see. We're kind of split living indeed. Yes correct for the first. While months to fourteen months I was splitting time. Actually between Los Angeles and London which was mental? And then and then then I started phased out of the Arab side but then I still at once. I moved to New York I was for workwise those in New York but still continued when I could because I could work remotely at times. I was in London when I over the course of over the course they are right built a really lovely and inspiring design network and tried of add. Some really dear friends over there so I just could've. That's where everything's to me so I would always go back there when I can. So that's amazing. So are you at liberty to kind of speak to. Oh what your next step is what you're up to right now before we go onto our topic for today sure. No I definitely can't so basically I had a moment of clarity clarity literally Thanksgiving Week. I was elected and I had all these different mope conversations with people and just something clicked and I'm just actually. She probably take a pause to the last three years. I've taken a pause between METALLICA Dobie. I took two days off a Saturday Sunday. which is not a weekend? So I'm just figuring house and delving into what I really WANNA do some side projects and then having conversations I haven't been able to have And a few other things too okay. So what sort of side projects if I can pry. I love people side project so for several years. People keep saying you need to write. You need a ride. So I'M GONNA be pitching some articles goals designed based on creative base but also to one of my passions besides building communities connecting people and is coffee as you probably And you post lovely lovely pictures of coffee a thank you so basically what I'm GonNa try to do is also create a dialogue Building community meaning but more or less talking about coffee also brought it broader crates. So I'm trying to figure out a way to pitch a formatted adage series. So if I'm in London I'll pick three craters or three people within even the food industry and go to their three favorite coffee or wine wine shops and talk about it and go from there some. I'm playing around with different types of not just doing creative or design industry focus writings but other also infusing so my other passions. Yeah that is really exciting. Thank you and then all of this. I'll be taking my pause in in London so I bought a one way so London and the man so We had a long layover. I I was in Europe In at the beginning of October and we had a really long layover in London So so we we had like a four hour chance to just kind of explore as quick as we could. It was the day of that crazy brexit thing on a Saturday. So loggers augurs and like subway places. Where like blocked off and stuff but I definitely want to visit again when it's probably less chaotic and when we have more time to the hang out there but it was it was really beautiful? It is there something unique about the design community and just the creative community as a whole and then also so to a city. It's Io's feels like little hamlets piece together so you have a high straight with just bustling but then you can go off a couple of blocks and you're quite canals and so it's a nice. It's a nice

"mattel" Discussed on MAD MONEY W/ JIM CRAMER

"Mattel the iconic toymaker finally just off route for years. The company behind Barbie Fisher Price. Moroccan girl does hot wheels. Wu Do and lots of other owned and licensed brands has struggled. Tell us going through a rotating cast of CEO's foreigners many years they've had to cope with the bankruptcy liquidation toys R.. US Monster for everybody early sure they had an accounting investigation leadership of its currency. Oh Non Cross. The company seems like it's gotten together the counting issues behind him the fourth and towards the Rust and put the at the end of October mattel. report an excellent quarter so as the comeback for real. Let's check in with he's the chairman and CEO Mattel or more about as companies doing and where it's headed Mr Walk Wadham demand money. I want everyone to know this. This man told me that there'd be a series of things that would happen. They put an accounting scandal behind. They will cut costs rather dramatically. They would start in in a way using intellectual property they would be able to make it so that they had no problems with the tariffs. Everything you said happened. How come well when I joined in eighteen months ago I saw an opportunity to transform it into an IP driven high-performing toy company intellectual property rights and we put together a strategy that had two phases in the short to midterm turn it was about restoring profitability drive top line growth in the mid to long-term was about capturing value from rip? And we've been executing exactly as planned and in terms of restoring profitability for five quarters in a row we improved reported operating income ebitda earnings per share and gross margin. Five quarters was in their old each of these metrics. We are now in on on pace to reduce our cost base. My more than eight hundred and fifty four million dollars run rate savings as exit in two thousand nine hundred and putting together. A Cup of the light strategy to dramatic news on a lot of factories use were giant steel more toys right. That's Over you still own. It is on plants we are in the process of reducing on fracturing footprint. We're ready to out. One reduce consolidated one plant plant Mexico. More coming where announces we're reducing. Achieving cost efficiencies fifty million dollars starting twenty twenty into twenty twenty one and beyond accept short-term religious name just something else from the entertainment backwards. You took a conic. But kinda Kinda like languishing Dow Barbie. Twelve percent double digit increase. How will Barbie is doing great? We actually had eighth consecutive quarters of growth seven of which have been double digit. This is a phenomenal performance driven. Really by our ability to make bobby part of pop culture current and contemporary with with today's demand is beautiful dolls. this is part of Pretty complicated line of a lot of innovation inovation new product. This is the Barbie Fashion Easter. Which is the number one representative of diversity and inclusion here? You're looking at Bob. Bob In in on a wheelchair and Judge Barbie which is part of the I can be line which is really a way of US representing more than two hundred careers for Barbie and empowering girls to do anything they want to be in the meantime you you're the entertainment business. You got some movies lined up movies that a a lot of people might see in the way we used to think about twitch story so to speak that's right. We've announced eight movie projects with some of the biggest and most successful filmmakers Chris. Today we have two movies in with Bono brothers in partnership with one others to with MGM with Sony with paramount with Justin. Blind people like Thomas normally associate with. That's right so Tom. Hanks is in partnership with us for a great project together with Together with paramount and Akiva Goldsman for Major Matt Mason. The bobby project is also on. That is going to be really exciting in partnership with Warner Brothers. Mugabe as the lead actor Greta Gerwig back. I'm back on credit partners writers directors and is going to be great. This is because your background which is not just traditional toy. That's right I I have a strong background in content. It's an IP. And this is really the opportunity that I saw more. In the mid to long-term in terms of commercializing brands and finding transformative opportunities entities for us to be part of the verticals that directly adjacent to the toy industry think film television events consumer product and merchandise gangs music all of which represent tremendous opportunity for a company like Mattel the tone such a strong collection of colossal generational global brands. How's that how so much resonance appeal toys? AOTEAROA racially eighty five percent in the industry maiden in China you're about two thirds That is considered to be good but isn't the truth. That's still a lot when we have new Taras coming and it's going to hurt your profitability when we are in a better position than the industry average given our product mix. But we are you're obviously monitoring and looking closely at the situation regarding tariff. Our job is to develop and design in organization that is flexible. That can respond to market. Changes the Yoda's not the old Mattel baby a sequel comes out or some baby is is a great phenomena. It happened fast and we were able to move really quickly and with great design and supply chain capabilities or able to now put the product on shelves offs April. I it's already available for sale. And we're very happy to part of a phenomenon. Infant toddler and preschool. Where's what I knew my tell? They're not doing well. What are you GONNA do? What Fisher price is the number one number one? Infant Preschool property in the industry in that category is the number John in the toy in the toy sector. Okay so we sit market later. We are taking all the relevant actions if you need you think about in terms of product innovation design a marketing campaign that is addressing Parents parents and already seeing a change of trend Fisher. You should price for which is by far. The lion's share of the category was down one percent in the last quarter and we're seeing momentum with a new product new marketing marketing competitive. We put putting two previous company maker you sold. Mid Fortune sold. The Disney is the goal to turn it around and flip it. We're building a great company. We're leveraging the capabilities we have the acids that we own the market standing that we have reaching over three hundred seventy five thousand indoors. Globally working with all major retailers all over the world and you're seeing a trend in addition to five quarters of improving stability. We now have three quarters of over of regaining top line growth in some currency and to US reported. We haven't done that since two thousand thirteen. So you're seeing strong sentamu on on on profitability momentum in top line and more will come all right. Sounds like you're staying in Turner's real okay. That's that's you know Christ these chairman and CEO. Of Mattel. Remember what I said. He said all these things. We're GONNA happen I waited. They've had their money's back.

Finally, Dolls That Look Like All of Us

"What's trending topic trending topic real quick is grandfather with Vitiligo Crochet as dolls holds for children with the same condition. It was trending on twitter. I thought it was really really nice and also today on twitter. They're talking about how Mattel launched a line of gender inclusive dolls on Wednesday. The toy manufacturer revealed creative will world its latest. Doll collection action has no gendered features. I love that God you know I just I think that like I really don't care where where people stand with gender like what I mean by. I don't care is if you're the type of person that's going to complain over something like this like. I don't care about about your opinion. I just don't but as far as like people supporting a cause of whether it's like a little girl or boy away with Vitiligo who wants a doll that looks like them or whatever it looks like even when it comes to like skin color our lake when I was thinking about the dolls that were made available to me as a kid I'm sure exact same for you like I'll look the same white skinny tall totally and then as they got got into Barbie which which they later said so. That's what I was thinking yeah because that's what I grew up with. They couldn't actually even to be able to live yeah. I and you put it into humans like Oh yeah that she actually wouldn't have enough. I think she's missing one or two ribs. It was all these crazy stuff and I'm like what were we thinking and who designed that and I always you know what I thought was Kinda. Cool American girl doll was started by woman who said she couldn't find herself. In dolls calls like she couldn't find what she looked like and there was a variety and that you know stills. Why are those so expensive. I don't know American girl. Dolls are like Lake Yeah. There's posh. They're nuts yeah like really nice but the one and I bought it at target and I I had no idea until one kid one day goes. It doesn't have the thing on the foot and I looked at the kid like go home you unless you want to buy her a real one. Shut shut your mouth and walk it back but my friend. She had her daughters now are in their twenties but she kept the American dolls from when they were little like I'm not throwing these away like these were so this the box yeah hundred s hundreds and hundreds of dollars there were like three dollars and like so many outfits yeah so she gave them to to my daughter and just look at that box and I'm like those are the only American dolls you will ever own child. That's it like they're nice but I am not paying one hundred bucks for that. There's more toys and dolls that look and feel there's more variety so a kid can go up to you know go up to a shelf and be like be attracted to whether it looks. The doll looks like them or not. They're like Oh. I like this one. Is he like all the Funky the monster dolls Paul's there were monsters and the characters and so she skipped the Barbie. She was never really interested in Barbie. She went to like monster dolls. which is I was like with? Bodies still are not very like still kinda sexy lean figures okay but she has a troll head all right well all right out the whole you know but I love the opportunity and I love that it's a GRANDPA.

Oh my God like me. I'm working hard for my gay. Jokes walks in with everybody loves Raymond Jokes. The jokes are funny. Wrestle cord like whatever you know. Do you ever see anything strange happening. Jason's apartment since y'all are neighbors you you know a couple of floors we don't run into. We really don't run into each other like we run into. Each other in the lobby spread the pool sometimes but we're both like communion. The back door will no pun intended on C. You because I bring my different Jason Glennon DMC Romo's. That's letting is one of the guys that are are Bob. He's living his DMZ planning. Go respond in fact he'd left me on unread. You know you now you can read the non read. Some is cool. I did it as a joke to Charlemagne. I I I don't want him. What if he said was good dinner. Yes then dinner skip all that Shit. I mean dinners for you. I mean clearly. I'm trying the eat less dinner so you whenever you need to get the job all right. Now I WANNA get into something. 'cause today's topic is really about break-up etiquette right. One of us is going through a breakup me smiling. Did you break up with him or did he break up much okay. That's that's a and whether or not we want to admit it is breakup are difficult. They are and sometimes you'll be happy and then in a few months. You'd be sad women you know. I think men are more like that. I had lunch with two of my ex's. Let yesterday at the same time trying to catch everybody. We just have one lunch best best best friends when we were together since at eight when I was eighteen. We're we're the other one was my last ex. Who went to prison just got out and checked me last week. I was here over some bitchy for four or he'd been talking to performance and got the pussy so I had to check him but I couldn't do it individually because my schedule is is busy because the fashion week so I just consolidate consolidate and we just got all this pussy thing yeah so he has a chick. He's like Maliki Oba. He's straight explain that I mean you know. I'm a I'm a podcast. I talk about you know. I do like straight guys. Yeah prefer straight guys. Listen live straight straight date friend a close friend of mine who's gay you know my framework is and and he's the same way like he prefers like the straight guys. I've started performing because one they're never. GonNa tell my business right like I say to him. We could never be together because one of your bitch is going to run up on me and say something crazy and what happened allows here in the club some I rambling minute. Oh we have the same friend saying friend. She said his name like there was money. You get the fuck out here you eh boo straight is just for the sake of trying to sort out like the knicks who are in West Hollywood with the rainbow flags and like the negative who are indictment on the low say t right was messing with a guy and you realize that somebody that I also have is one of my side pieces. Would you tell her or is that something that you're like. Oh my relationship leisurewear him. I got into her. That's their relationship. My relationship with him is whatever we dug WANNA look. If I mess with somebody and then or you know I know that prices messing with one of my friends I would tell right so it's just a different layer when you don't WanNa also out the person. I think there's levels to write like if I was sleeping was find out that they were Melissa Ford's boyfriend caller by David exe dig good hilarious and that's the conversation I've had that conversation was like I didn't know you know but you saying you would tell her because she's your friend right because we're like really there. Aren't that close but realistically. I don't think I would want to know that like if like some of my guys they'll see you and the whole mash Spanish is lying. Fuck you live in my building. You know say you come up here and then go down there yeah so we're talking about break-up etiquette right so when you break up with somebody let's just say now. Yes single right to have a lot of friends over the course of ten years. You'll have accumulated similar friends news news well yeah. I don't really count count but okay 'cause I was his friend. I and that's how I actually know Digi but let's just say some friends of yours that you had they. We're your friends I are. They still allowed to cool him. Well good question. I would say depends on said friend. And how long we've I've been friends how close they can't become over the years and that thing like if it's a new furnace hasn't been around that long then no bitch while you around him like. Y'All oh not that close but if it's somebody that's been around for the duration of the ten eight nine seven year you know what I'm standing. It's a little different because most likely vacation with this person and they've been around him already without me for whatever reason whatever even so let's say he has a fight party at the house and he invites one of my friends. That was a long term friend that has become friends. Lehem Jason. I don't know because I just feel like you know. We'll see one thing about that guy is he's like the host with the most like like he's always throwing parties. He's always inviting everybody over. He's always like I've been Dan. We all know each other together. I know him through you and we you know each other through this and I would not feel comfortable going so party. I see that right. There is the answer because it all depends on your friends who run you like Ma friends friends which are very few like I know a lot of people and I make sure people know or whatever for work but when it comes like my personal life. I don't really deal with a lot of people so my friends friends with nationally just cut you off. I mean no like if I've seen them Ron. I'm like Oh. Hey you know what I'm saying. I'm not going to I'm not going at a party and on the other hands she I wouldn't think it would be so bad for as to go at the big party at his house. Exactly we're friends. We're all we're all three close. You know what I mean like mature also new Angela. You know her character. She Ain't trying to be close to him for any reason. That would be out of pocket. I just mind my the business is higher sometimes when you're friends with each other and you like. I don't WanNa know nothing. Don't do nothing in front of me and he can't even trust me because I'll be there like a spy. I don't really care I have our break up all the time or st new no but on this time nobody believes that I'm done because we were just broken up a year ago here. We are a year later in long as you guys have been broken apfel seventeen months long time that was the last break up and then it's been you are when y'all read books and when you aww drive cars y'all dry forward. Why do y'all go on reverse. I never understood when I break up to get where you know you get. You know you valet take over. I just don't believe that life those in reverse. Even if we break up for like a weekend is over come I now now we can never broken up and then got back together. It's just a clear set. We start from the beginning. Don't lie don't cheat. Don't still which Knicks do if you I don't like about it won't mean this way. I'm definitely over it. I moved moved here to New York for our relationship six years ago and now that it's over. I'm moving back to Georgia and you know that's part of me moving on battling oh no because now you're you're literally putting all the power in him. I'm not happy with him so I don't in our young fly. You're in the city if Wendy Williams confined love right now right. I don't WanNa live here. I would rather live in Atlanta now. Why would you save Wendy Williams menial. She was married for twenty five years. That was not that I'm running. Listen when we broke up the very first time I have been here for two years. I would have moved back to Atlanta then but lip-service hedges is kind of taken off so I stayed for this but now we're at a point where I'm able to fly in for the show. I'll still be able to be here for still coming visiting in the show my whole my whole entire families in Philly. I have a house there so you know I'll be able to come. There visit my family. You Know Oh hang out with my girls while I'm in town. Come Service see what about you. When it comes to break up are you do you go in reverse ever? I mean I have but I've been up that NIGGA. Nigga thought it was funny because I was like what was your question is like how to break up with the etiquette like I the I told someone unlike I'm chilling like it's cool and he was like well. At least you broke up with me maturity and I was. I didn't even know we were together. Sometimes you're in a relationship and don't know I didn't even no. I was with him but I did it right right. I definitely don't reverse anymore. Now you know so. I guess I guess so. I'm so confused about relationships now. I didn't know I was in one for three months. I tell you this is like a reality. Show 'cause she. He lives on the fifth floor lived on the fourth floor on a search for a chain. They moved into the because he lived there. I was like it'll be cute because it'll be like our mansion like olive downstairs and we just run this joining uh-huh together and it was so good you break up and so we broke up now we'd be like why you need to live in the same building with somebody. You know what when you are doing business with somebody like and you're in a relationship and you're like okay. Let's start this business together Hi thing to do to my last ex Mattel you how how I ended the relationship so I started feeling like we're we're. We're well. I got to a point where I felt enough. They were at a point where they just couldn't fall in love with anybody. You know they were very selfish not in a negative way but just not really emotional burs so when they were laying in bed.

"Forever. Completely frozen. She's called Elsa. And the name of her movie is frozen. Frozen is a phenomenon it grosses more than a billion dollars at the box office and becomes the biggest animated movie of all time naturally frozen. Send sales of Disney Princess dolls soaring sales that Disney is now seriously considering handing to Mattel's arch enemy. In early twenty fourteen. Disney invites Hasbro to Burbank, California. It wants Hasbro to make its pitch for the Disney Princess rights. It's Hasbro CEO Brian golden moment to shine. And there's a lot at stake. Thanks to frozen. The annual sales of Disney Princess dolls are pushing half a billion dollars. Goelner leads the pitch. I'll inside show that girl. See princesses in much the same way as Boise superheroes. And that means girls are drawn to different characters for different reasons. Those reasons might be aerials mermaid tail Meritas, archery, skills or else's ability to conjure snow Goelner takes a sip of water. And then continues. What's missing from Mattel's marketing of your dolls is anything highlighting the individual appeal of each Princess now, if we had the Disney Princess line, we would draw that out, for example, Tiana from the Princess, and the frog she's an amazing cook we can tap into that the Disney team loves the Tian example, it shows Disney that Hasbro's thinking about its lesser known princesses to in contrast Mattel's focused its energies on the big league. Princesses cinderella. The little mermaid Snow White when the Hasbro team finishes. The Disney execs applaud. Go nurse smiles that his got to be a good sign by the time. Mattel realizes it's about to lose its lucrative. Disney. Princess line. It's too late to win them back in September twenty fourteen. Disney gives Hasbro the rights now Mattel desperately needs Barbie to make a comeback. So it ops for radical action. For decades, Barbies been criticized for impossibly small waist distracting long legs and well endowed breasts. Critics say these proportions give little girls and unrealistic idea of what a woman's body should look like now Mattel's addressing those complaints head on in January twenty sixteen as the first Hasbro Disney Princess dolls reach shores. Mattel unveils the biggest change in Barbies fifty seven year history for generations Barbie dolls have presented image of perfect beauty and for many. That's exactly the problem. But now as NBC's Erica hill tells us Barbie is getting a whole new look Mattel's new Barbies. Embraced diversity Barbies with new facial structures. New skin tones new hair textures and a choice of four body shapes original, petite, curvy and tall. Mattel's decision to finally get with the time to embrace a more inclusive vision of beauty with Barbie generates tons of positive publicity. It makes the TV news the front cover of time magazine and even gets a thumbs up from Ellen Degeneres. But the positive welcome doesn't result in the brand resurrection Mattel hoped for Barbie sales do increase, but by twenty seventeen it's clear that sales bump is nowhere near big enough to make up for losing the Disney princesses. Later that year Hasbro replaces Mattel as America's biggest toymaker for the first time in more than twenty years. But as their seventy year conflict shows, it's never wise to count Mattel out Mattel survived accounting scandals the video game implosion of the eighties and the toxic acquisition of the learning company. It's made comebacks before. And Hasbro knows it. But what their battle does show is that even in toys, the most faddish industry of all strong brands endure so long as they adapt with moves like Barbie's constant reinventions to transformers movie back revival. Mattel and Hasbro have blown apart the old idea that toys R here today gone tomorrow business now, the only dead toys or those that failed to move with the times. And that of course means Hasbro in Mattel's next opportunity to get the jump on each other is always right around the corner.

"The one office here uh but sometimes you just need to grow or don't have a longterm plan settled on yet uh looks like they're putting it together longterm plan to get everybody in into one building if they can pull it off hasbro had as you said has made overtures to mattel add that mattel has resisted to this point a year from now do you think this deal has gone through because and and i don't have a dog in this fight but i i i'm not really sure if i should be rooting for this merger or not uh presumably if the price is right than that works out well for mattel shareholders but i don't know i kinda like that there's the competition out there and i also like to see new ceos get a chance to turn the company around in and that's the case of mattel i mean the ceos been there less than a year and i feel like she should have a chance to i don't know implement her vision for what success looks like a mattel well so mattel just the other day dago reported that uh it is anticipating a disappointing holiday season and while as one might imagine the holiday season is kind of kind of important for a toy maker and hasbro's made no such a announcement and i think that mattel this is another in an ongoing series of disappointing announcements from mattel and i think when you ask uh you know can i speculate will this be done in a year from today hasbro's a wellrun company they're not gonna overpay uh did they've made a and offering mattel's rejected it but if mattel thinks they're going to get more money they may be right but it they think they're gonna get more money than they're worth uh i think they're wrong and i think that there.

"All air hogs that garang create the the tv shows in the movies and then the characters in the games to go along with it on also owners of sketch an you know for some throwback games but a unique keep growing imagination of these kids trying to compete with ipads and things like that but certainly a long tail uh trend that were big fan seven in the canadian market we've chosen to go a spin master uh in that regard this move by hasbro doesn't surprise me it would surprise me if it was the reverse just because uh margo george janas who's the ceo at mattel she got there in january and everything i've read about her uh just sort of struck me as okay this is this is certainly an upgrade in the corner office at mattel and i just figured give her at least a year maybe even two years before you too as we would any c itoh so if this was a move by metab by her and her board that would surprise me i think has railways smart to make this move now in this regard that they might look at her and think pay before she gets a chance to really impact the culture number of things of this might be the weakest point they're going to get as long as she there she's there so let's go now yeah and the enemy chicoms from google so she has certainly i think positive exposure on the culture side certainly a tech background that can help mattel at this point so yeah i think you're right in that they're looking at mattel right now as a company that is uh down but not out in in it doesn't mean that they can't turn this renningen they do have some popular brands out there but they have put themselves in a bit of a bind up financially in in in again when you look at i mean this is a business that is one hundred percent lever to the consumer any retail environment that is just really scary right now in in they have they they have not made the investments in technology that they've needed to make a whereas hasbro has up so again you either adding hasbro's probably looking at mattel seen a company in a position of weakness they certain.
