The Rise of Mental Skills Coaching ft. Mike MacCrory, Envy Gaming
"Let's welcome to Mike McCurry of Envy gaming easy direct mental skills by doing like I'm doing great Kevin. How are you doing? Great, man. I'm just trying to you know, mentally prepare myself for this interview, and I'm not sure if I did it right or wrong, but yep. Will tell me if I if I am anywhere near that range, but for now Mike, you're a former TCU football player with a Bachelor of Science in sports psychology. You got a master's degree in athletic can go to Springfield College in Massachusetts. And you're the mental skills coach for the Dallas Mavericks NBA 2K League team Math JiJi for I think two seasons before your current role. Yes. That's correct. I was there for the inaugural season as well as the second season of the NBA 2K League since I mentioned during that second season and I was just absolutely enamored with every anything we had to say. I was like, this is just absolutely insane that a 2K League team would just bring on a mental skills coach and you were just all for you were you didn't even blink like and I when I said isn't this crazy or like yeah, but I love it. I think it's on the internet somewhere. I pull it up somewhere but insane. Yeah, I know that was I mean a really cool opportunity for me to get to talk about what I do on a platform and I mean, of course Like who who wouldn't want to find themselves in an opportunity like this? You know, I'm always grateful that the Mavericks have been very forward-thinking DK donkey 16,000. He's been with the mass for an extremely long time. He was the first full-time mental skills coach hired in the NBA. So that just gives you an idea of again how the Mavericks have always been on the Forefront of providing their place the resources, they need to just to be successful. So it only made sense that they did the same with their 2K team and I was just extremely fortunate to be part of that
Carrie Bernans Talks Connecting with Other Actors, Confronting Stereotypes Of Black Women
"I was like eh part of every church events. You their dance department. And their easter sunday plays and stuff so i would say that was. My first start was in the church and then the second star was like in the school theater. Plays and stuff like that and then after that After high school hosted the eight in college and disembowel in college. And then i got cast in a couple of community theatre plays and musicals although i don't really saying I guess that was good enough to make you know. I think i need to use voice training so that was like my initial start and i loved theater so much. 'cause you eat the same thing and then you just get better and better and better and and it just so much fun because you're playing with people on your living in this bigger than life imaginations and just like it was is bringing things to life so that was my initial start and then i m did Single ladies on vh. one with stacey dash. Lisa ray when i was in atlanta one summer in college as well and that was my first time on like actual tv set and then it kind of grew from there. You find the on camera just clicked with you more so than theater yet. It definitely i think. I mean the either clicks with me too. 'cause i think i am. I am very loud and just like very theatrical for only slightly dramatic. I wish you pump it up a little bit. Mccurry the pop up now. Tv was also just really funny. I was just like oh. My god is so cool but tv. I had to learn how to tone it down a bit be more. Quieter more intimate. Tv wasn't adjustment. But i did find light. Tv and film was much more fun for me and it moves a lot faster to them. Theater does Which i really love in a you can do more. And you can explore more and play with more carrots As i mentioned in part one it was. Actually the ceo of we audition. Darren darn borough. Who introduced me to carry. So i wanted to take a little time out to talk to carry about how she found out about. We audition what it's meant to her and how she uses this online community to further her own craft and career. yeah discover. We had nothing when they were really just the startup where they first came out. I think dare since they started. And i don't remember where exactly i was at. Maybe i saw something ally and i was like. Oh this is cool. And i got on. I started using it. And then i think darren reached out to me and then he started putting me as like a mvp and stuff like that's all became like more engaged with it. And i love we auditioned. I think it's it's definitely helped me a lot Because i would addition a whole lot in sometimes. My friends wasn't getting the same amount additions. I was getting so. I fell back accidents. To help me with an audition. They were not addition at the moment so it was great to go to this online resource to meet other actors to get their help with an audition and they had no tied to me. I guess you could say they just wanted to practice leading or scripture acting themselves and it just has been such a brilliant platform for media's in what are the ways besides just auditioning have you been able to use it. Yeah i've met with cast directors on there. They have these coffee. Our kind of sessions where you can meet casting actors for you know five to fifteen minute conversation. I've also met a couple writers on there. I also have used. It suggests like breaking down other stuff like that. I'm writing in having actors. Read it on their mind themselves like putting my stuff on there And i've also built some incredible friendships. I went to sundance last year. And i we auditioned co-sponsor to house so it allowed us premium access to like this really nice house and then a part of the package that we paid we also provided publicist which allowed us to get some more bits that we were doing and the friendships said i made within. The house was definitely like a big win. That i've now taken in so like twenty twenty one with me and i still talk with a lot of friends.
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner gives update on power outages and weather impact
"With me now is houston mayor sylvester turner previously served nearly thirty years as a texas state representative. He is in a command center right now. Monitoring situation in his city mayor. Thank you for taking a little time with us. And i don't want to start first with things aren't houston. Are they getting better. Chris in the last twenty four hours. Things have improved yesterday. At this time we had about one point. Three million customers without power Today as i talked to you that number is under thirty thousand in houston region yesterday The the water pressure was extremely low In fact hospitals were having a hard time getting but they needed Just to run a bear chillers to stay warm and other necessities today. The water pressure in the city of houston has increased And hospitals in much better shape at the same time people many of the people able to flush their kamoze improvement with still not wear. We want it to be but yesterday the pressure was below what we call twenty. Ps today as we speak that what a precious right around thirty so being things improving but again we still have some tremendous needs at. They're just zero in on the water aspect of this has been one of the more harrowing parts of it and a kind of a kind of cascade effect. We're going out water treatment facilities. Just explain to me what that means that it does. It mean pressure. Now you can you can. People can run water in their homes. That firefighters have water that hospitals have it is. That is that where things are correct. Hospitals now have watered. That can run the chillers. Keep the patients that doctors and medical staff Warm in in in in cool weather so to speak People able to take showers. Peabody plus two komo but because the water pressure dropped below the regulatory requirement twenty. Psi you automatically have to give ball water. Notices so you have over seven hundred jurisdictions around the state of texas a chieftain san antonio austin example in many others where there are bald notice requirements and that will continue to be the case probably through the weekend at the earliest that ball. What notice could probably be lifted on sunday. But i think for houston probably be monday. Which means if people don't have power because just also ball your water about two minutes but what happens if you don't have power then people are going to rely a great deal on bought a water and that's why starting today We started distributing water to those persons for example. Who don't have the means to go into a grocery store and purchase tomorrow for example will be masked water distribution site in the city of houston where we will probably give out tomorrow anywhere between seven to nine hundred thousand bottles of water primarily for people for families who already on the modulus. Chris and they just can't afford to go in and purchase two and three and four cases of water. And we'll do that Tomorrow saturday sunday until this ball. Water notice has been listed. That's really that's very helpful in understanding where things are. Let me let me also ask what your interfaces have been. With spill state and federal government i know females on the on on the ground. Have you been talking with aircraft that run the the grid with folks from fina. The federal government and with governor abbot. What are those interactions been like. Well i've talked several times with the ceo. Behead of eric hot And n n what he will say to you. Is that the system that we have in the state of texas. Our texas korea is designed for the summer heat. It is not necessarily designed for winter storms and then as relates to this. What happened in this. In the last four or five days that was simply not enough adequate generation supply available to meet the demand and the supply that they had reserved so to speak when with shop when some of the facilities came all flying of been made things even worse and let me quickly speak to those who are trying to say. oh the wind turbine frozen. You shouldn't be looking at renewables as a false false aligned. Being put four because the plants that came off line while natural gas plants coal fired. Plant Nuclear plants came offline. You wind turbine strobes. So it was a combination but when it comes to win and sola that's still only counts for a fraction of the energy that's produced in the state of texas. The rally at reality is that the state was. Ill prepared The other thing that i would add when i was in the legislature but twenty three of my twenty seven years i said on the on the committee that oversees our electric utility industry back in twenty eleven fouled a bill saying to the public utility commission that we need to exert greater oversight over urquhot to prevent blackouts of every kind that we have are experiencing in texas for four for these last four days batmobile. Chris was never given a hearing. And so for anybody. Who's just trying to place the blame on irc That's not enough as part of the story but it's not the total story. Archive is an agency of the state of texas is the leadership of that overseas or cat and what happened in this week with the failure. Not just urquhot but of the statewide leadership state representative state senators. Who didn't do enough to make the necessary. Structural changes prevent what took place this week but mccurry and as a result of that hundreds of thousands of texans paid a horrible price and they are number of stony that we live in the city of my city that anada that not allowed to date to go into next week. Some of them died from carbon monoxide. Trying to keep themselves

Diversity in Photography
"Welcome back to another episode I'm your host Frederik van Johnson. Today I'm talking with my friend Karen Sacks. We're GONNA be talking about her new accidents, not even that new, but it's a it's a service that you may not have heard about its. Services a good name for Karen can explain what what the loop is all about, but it is a, it's something. Like this carrying you can tell me if I'm wrong, it is something that is serving a niche that is severely under served right now, and she's at the right place at the right time with the right product cares acts welcome to the show how's it going and it's going great. Thank you so much for having me and great description of of what we're building at the loop. WAS THAT AMORPHOUS? You it was. It was why don't I? Can. Go a little bit deeper and. What we like to say is that we're building a platform that is connecting the world's best diverse photographers, commercial professional photographers with brands around the world to make great work we want to help brands get content. Simply we WANNA simplify that process and we want to help photographers especially underrepresented diverse photographers get work. So we're bringing those two together our platform, the loop. Wonderful. That sounds like you you practice for. Maybe once or twice. Saying that a lot lately. To, the elevator with with. Man. Musk at your kitchen, you know. Right, exactly that's my elevator patch. Has Perfect Elevator pitch. Okay. So let's let's rewind I wanNA dive into the loop and kind of understand you know at a at a DNA level what it is you built and are building. But let's let's understand who cares. Sachs's I swear what's your? What's your pedigree that brought you from A to B. Sarah? No problem. So I have been in the industry for close. To twenty years, it sounds a little crazy to say that twenty years But that's how long it's been. I started my career at National Geographic I actually backing up a little bit started taking photography classes in high school like many photographers they always put in there about me section on their website that somebody gave them a camera when they're fifteen or sixteen years old. Similar similar for me I started taking classes. Photography classes in high school fell in love with it decided I wanted to major in photography. I went to the University of Michigan where I studied photography. I have a BFA photography I also have. A degree in American culture. So I did it be in American culture I felt like I needed both of those to take me where I wanted to go in my career yet I didn't know where I wanted to go in my career. I had this idea that I wanted to be at national geographic like many photographers many young aspiring photographers who wanted to go to national. Geographic I had my heart set on it. I. Didn't know what that would look like for me. I didn't know how I would get there. I didn't know what I would do there but I. Knew I. needed a career in photography and I wanted to start there and that's what I did when I graduated from the University of Michigan in August the following summer at the end of the summer I, moved to Washington DC and I started a job at National Geographic Kids magazine as a photo assistant and worked my way up to a photo editor. I. Was there for four years. It was an unbelievable experience I would ride in the elevator speaking of elevators I would ride in elevators with photographers whose work had been studying in school and I would be so nervous. I often wouldn't know what to say to them. That it was they were my heroes, my superstars they were who I wanted to be around into study their work and to know their images and I loved taking my film to get dropped off at the at the film lab at National Geographic. How cool that there was a film lab there and yes, we are still shooting film in those days. And I would be you know right next to Steve McCurry are Jodi COBB and that to me was the coolest thing. So I was there for four years and over that time I, realized that my place was not behind the camera was not being a photographer it was working with photographers. So I started to get a glimpse of really what I wanted to be doing and with each move I made in long career I got closer and closer to what it is that I wanted to be doing. So after I left geographic, I moved up to New York and I started freelancing for the Wall Street Journal. Started meeting a lot of photographers being in studios with them kind of understanding how they operated, how they worked, how they got jobs, and from there where did I go Martha Stewart Martha Stewart living in I was a director photographer on the merchandise side at Martha unbelievable experience I felt like I was working with the best of the best actually where I met my husband and I worked on all of her different product lines overseeing the photography for the product lines working with Martha on a couple of. Shoots, which was an incredible experience and I also after I left there. I went to a place called Archive. I skipped one I was at Corbis for a little bit Corbis, which is now part of getty images in the stock photography world. So I was getting glimpses of different aspects of the photo industry starting with editorial moving into commercial with Martha's products moving into stock photography. At Trunk Archive, I worked with high end photographers, Boutique photo, agency So so I kept kind of building I. Think these are all building blocks. And then more recently, I was at shutter sock for five years. So that's when I really understood what it meant to build products and to work for a company in the photo space. And then that has led me to the loop,

Innovation and the Clich
"Years the editor of Lens Work Publishing Brooks Jensen as an introduction to this topic. Let me begin with a little bit of inside baseball as they say. Did describe how it is that these podcasts come about. Oftentimes they're sparks from something. I read or something someone says to me or an idea. Get an e mail. Sometimes it's ideas that just bubble up out of nowhere. As I've often mentioned this happens a lot in the shower for some reason so I actually have a divers where I can jot down ideas before I forget them while. I'm still in the shower. And that's what happened this morning at phrase occurred to me out of the clear. Blue Sky jotted down. I had no idea where it was going. But I've been thinking about it all day in it's led to a very interesting train of thought. I WANNA share with you. The phrase is as a pursuit in life. The creation of art seems to be a dance between innovation an execution dance between innovation and execution. And here's what occurred to me while I was thinking about this. I've been listening to two different kinds of music of late. I've for reasons I can't explain really gotten into the piano concertos of Rachmaninoff. And I've mentioned that these are available on Youtube Etcetera. Play by this brilliant Chinese Pena's named Eugene and by sheer coincidence. I've also discovered a composer. Young woman who is very talented at composing classical music. And she's been exploring lots of other genres of music are names Nari Soul and she has been discussing of late in some of her Youtube Videos John Cage and his work. With what's called a prepared piano. He would take an open up a piano and attach things to the strings. like paper clips and whatnot and and the piano would make very funny noises and oftentimes. He would not really play music. He would just play notes and things and very innovative very creative. Very modern very sort of avant garde out there and she's been exploring some of his ideas so I I had these two things that are clashing in my brain the extreme precision and accomplishment of the execution of Rachmaninoff by Eugene Dong and John Cage and is prepared piano as explored by Nari Soul. I think these two extremes are what got me thinking about the dance between innovation and execution. LemMe ask the question. This way in terms of piano music which is a higher form of accomplishment. The extreme innovation of John Cage thinking way outside the box not only thinking outside of meter and normal harmonies and progressions but thinking about outside normal instruments. And how they can be modified in played with talk about innovation way out there so we applaud that to some degree and then at the other end of the scale is you. Juwan and her unbelievably precise playing Rachmaninoff. And the the execution that she brings to his scores are not only extremely high in terms of technical proficiency but also in terms of emotional content. So that's a very high measure of success. But can't we agree that these two are at essentially completely opposite ends of the creative spectrum? Both forms of music can bring out emotions. Strong positive and negative is zoom and both of them can be seen to fall in some sort of competition or scale of things. And which do we appreciate more? Well obviously the reason I bring all this up is because I'm thinking about this relative to photography to what's more important in photography extreme innovation here. I'm thinking of the inventive work from the imagination of photographers like Jerry. You'll Zeman or John Paul Capela Negro or Huntington Witherell or dominic rouse or the incredibly precise execution on very traditional lines. And here on thinking of Bruce Marne bomb and John Sexton and and even people like Steve McCurry. Which do we value more? The key idea here seems to me to revolve around our expectations. If we go into a piece of artwork with the assumption that what we're looking for is incredibly talented sensitive execution and we see something like the prepared piano of John Cage or the innovative of Jerry yells men or someone we might say. Well that's not what I call a picture because it doesn't look like what we expect a fine art photograph to look like on the other hand if we go in assuming that what we value. Is something really innovative? Something we've never seen before then we can look at work like. Oh maybe even Louis Balsam Robert Atoms and Lee friedlander Gary Winner. Grand and say well. That's that's not what I call a picture. But wow is that fantastic. Because it doesn't look at all like we expect a fine art photograph to look. I think it's easy for us to appreciate the fact that there are two camps. It's perhaps even easier to fall into one of those two camps without even realizing it if we're a traditionalist we're gonNA look at the innovative and the Avant Garde is being weird and certainly when people look at oh do sharp or Mcgraw eat they might look at those paintings and say that's weird. That's you know. Because it doesn't look like Rembrandt Raphael. On the other hand if greet and duchamp painted like Rembrandt and Rafael. We might look at it and say well. That's boring because it's not innovative so therefore it doesn't seem to add much to the history of painting and so we're not interested in it. Well we can do exactly the same thing in photography. How do you evaluate work when you look at it? Do you evaluate it based on its execution and how well it conforms to the cliche or do you evaluate it based on its innovation and how different and unique it is. There is a position in the Middle. Which gives me pause for concern. Because if what we're trying to do is have the best of both worlds have innovation and traditional execution for example. Then the only thing that's left is what you point your camera at that is to say trying to find something that hasn't been photographed as artwork before and turn that into your bailiwick or your creative vision. In hopes that people would look at it and say beautifully done traditionally printed man fantastic execution of something. That's never been photographed before and isn't that Nice. Do you realize that that's exactly what happened? In the early history of painting this has been discussed by lots. And lots of people. Certainly not a unique idea. And certainly not my own but basically the idea's this for generations for literally. Hundreds of years painting was of the human figure primarily religious pictures descent from the cross kinds of things but usually what happened in those paintings as they had to be set in some kind of scene and so there would be introduced in the background. Some little bit of a tree or a little stream or a building or something and with enough passage of time and hundreds of years. Painters started saying to the figure move over. We're we're more interested in what's going on in the background than we are in the human figure or the story and landscape painting was born but when landscape painting was born that way there were probably lots and lots of people around who said well. That's not what I call a painting because whereas the people this is just a bunch trees that's not very interesting so it was innovative but it wasn't traditional and it certainly didn't measure up to the kinds of execution that were expected in a portrait of a person or the painting of a of a story seen or some such thing
Conversational AI with Israel Krush of Hyro.ai
"So I'm Israel Co harder and Seal Jairo A. M. I am roaming around and McCurry started late. Two hundred days early defensible says when was in charge of extracting considering message amounts of data for operational needs. That may studied computer science. The district says coming from a machine. Learning Beck rounds started working software engineer. I Inc than than at various start companies from cyber-security at the move the product management Was Product Manager head of of a couple of companies and then most of the state said gazillion. Mba DID MY MBA at Cornell University. This typically the new compass on woodsmen Thailand. And that's actually where I met with. My Co. founders from Cohen. Who studied at Cornell is master's in computer science? We actually met in machine learning class. Wow and do use in disband narrative Dick Campus We knew that one spin out than we actually got exposed to the polyphemus Alexa Google home divisive. And we're very excited about that. That we don't have this in Israel yet am so first of all very excited and then we got a bit disappointed by South. The use cases that it wasn't Tackle as we started exploring I the voice migrant than being dial natural language understanding market including jet right and when we understood that there is a lot to do there. I called a friend of mine. From beyond from eighty two hundred who are Scipio and Co founder and then we also a master's in computer science but he actually studying linguistics in Caroline and research. The English neighbors. We have this unique expertise in The industry it's called their competition linguistics or Google. Five years I that there could search link salmon beyond the USA and then Google Duplex which I'm sure a million happy group at at Google created spoi- suspended scheduled appointments for you restaurants in her salons headed amazing about the. That's right. I remember that I remember that very that was big news at the time wild. That's amazing so you guys really have a lot of expertise coming from different backgrounds but all very relevant to what you do in very interesting so how. How long ago was this that you all met like? How how? How does this company? Yeah so minimum. Method Cornell Tech and I know for the fifteen years but the company fall immediately after graduation so incorporated in June twenty eighth Dean so Less than two years ago. Talk about what we do but basically on on the concept had that accepted to news roundtable accelerator local leading accelerator in New York City And who went from there by developing the MVP getting our first big pilot We have something that we can actually converted to annual contract. Raised are around in a four million dollars the less July and today we're at the end of seventeen people in New York City California and Delaware. Wow that's great. Congratulations on that. So far that's amazing so to tell us more about the company for so what what is it. What do you guys do absolutely so I wrote? One sentence is a black play conversation. I blog form four healthcare providers. So let me break down. Abates conventionally I as I mentioned we're trying to focus on but also the so as long as it's natural language that we don't care about the medium actually understanding natural language in healthcare providers wanted to start with and enterprises organizations Massive amounts of data and That this data is heart navigating and maybe patients or general users. Find it hard to find. Whatever they're looking for or complete the tasks in the transaction did they want to complete and finally in that's the most important aspect of our solution is the blogging play. So why research assistant markets and the generals market. We've learned a lot of a lot of the existing solutions are based on a creation platform so Us As a company gives innovation the creation platform where they can define their intense and build workflows or conversation flows officials says X. replied with fly with another Blind we maybe Detroit Branch Users set and found it to be Embargoes There's friction at both the deployment and maintenance organization so we said we try to look for a completely blogging play approach. So what we do. Is We actually up into the existing data sources of the organization scrape them and we basically translating the the date now? Two different data structure which is a knowledge graph which is composed out of the main entities Andrew attributes and disconnections when this ended his attributes and this is our own representations of the Beta and which we can query natural language sessions. Really give them an embedded that piece of code they just copying base to their Website Call Center. Alexa Google and they have their voice assistant or Well basically the content. Yes so I'm not a computer scientist. That seems like maybe you can just explain that a little bit. How are you able to go? And when you're working with different organizations which which presumably have different ways of organizing their data take one piece of code and yet make it applicable to all these different organizations. Yeah absolutely so. I'll explain a one of the main use cases we've found valuable for healthcare provider is is helping their patients. The physician find the physician based on various attributes of this position when talked about their constructing. This nottage raffle and is a natural In this case the entity is a physician. And I can you might be a geology locations that the accepting insurance length that they accept and so on and so what we do. Is We actually go on by this website? And as all of their physicians went Beijing has been so we scrape them. And we don't care whether it's under the physicians or tens of thousands of physicians with scrape them build this knowledge graph and then on every attribute that the wasn't the data we can basically retrieve the relevant dancer. And I'll give you an interesting example show when we first deployed and we thought about you know people can ask seems like looking for cardiologists to speak Spanish. And ethnic cleansing the upper east side right location language specialities insurance men and so on so we destiny the beat and we actually gave to the first female user to death and she asked for an and that's just the use case that we didn't we didn't think of why a person would fit there by gender. Maybe you think it makes a little sense liquid even think about it was amen to recline with the relevant results. Just because the data was there it was a gender female man for each physician. And I think that's the barrel of actually being based on the data says trying to imagine a pretty finding dates. That's very interesting hot. So was essentially intelligent enough to just use the data. That was there but but bring that back so. Wow very

So You Want to Do a Book
"Here's the editor of Lens Publishing Bruce. Jensen almost every photographer. I know wants to do a book of their work. I cannot tell you how many conversations I've had over the years with photographers. Who particularly in review sessions say? I'm here primarily because I'm looking for a publisher and would you be interested in publishing my work or if you're not interested in publishing my work can you tell me how to find a publisher or what. I have to do to produce a book of my work even if it means funding it and producing it themselves all well and good the problem. Is that when I talk with these photographers? A little more deeply about their desire to do a book of their work. I've found that few of them have any clear idea why they WANNA do a book. There's lots of fantasies that crop up about what they think book is going to do for them but generally speaking those are unrealistic ideas and there are primarily five of them that I've identified over the years that are reasons people say for wanting to produce a book and I WanNa take a look at those five reasons and and look a little more deeply at them so here they are the first thing people say is they wanna make money and they think that rather than selling their original prints they think they can make money by selling books second. They think a book will help them broaden their audience get their artwork their photographs in front of more eyeballs. And that's what they're primarily interested in his audience and so a book to them. We'll get a lot more people to see their work than having say an exhibition third. They say they want to add their voice to photographic history. They somehow perceive all the famous photographers. They know come from their experience of seeing work in books relative to galleries. We see a lot more books than galleries and exhibitions and museums and etc. And so they think they can add their voice to photographic history by producing a book and somehow put themselves in the Pantheon of the march of photographic artwork through the ages fourth. They say they want to be taken seriously or the way I tend to think of it is they somehow think that producing a book of their work is going to be some sort of validation of their artwork like they've arrived particularly if a publisher a third party agrees and solicits them to publish their work. That that's some sort of validation rather than if they were to self publish. Which has a lot less validation about it. And the fifth reason people say they want to produce a book is because they want to produce something for the ages they think somehow that producing a book will be more substantial than producing just their individual photographic prints and having a book out there that's in libraries or special collections or owned by people means that their work will live beyond them so there's a mortality issue involved now curiously enough all five of these common reasons people offer up for why they WANNA produce book have one thing in common and that is that they think somehow the medium of book publishing holds the key to all of this success when in fact the medium of book publishing is just a medium. It's another way to get your work out there in the world but it really doesn't hold the key to any of this success in fact what is the key that opens up. All of these doors is the quality of their work. But it's so much easier to focus on the medium than on making better more meaningful more sensitive higher quality photographs that. That's a mystery about how to do that. Every one of us are involved in that mystery. And that's what I call leading the creative life is figuring out how to make more impactful artwork. That is true to ourselves and at the same time share something of value with people. That's hard work and that's very difficult to do. Making a book by comparison is relatively easy and so the focus becomes. Let's zero in on the medium rather than on the work. Well maybe not to the exclusion of the quality of the work. But somehow the idea is that the medium will unlock all the doors and it just doesn't because each one of these has some problems involved with them and I want to take them one at a time. So let's start with making money. The problem with wanting to produce a book of your work in order to make money is that the financial aspects of. It's simply don't work the book. Business is not a very healthy business right now partly because costs continue to escalate on what it takes to produce a book tax laws work against you because essentially they make it a one year project. You can't any longer amortize your costs over the life of the book and there's this nitpicky thing called break even so. I know it's hard to follow numbers but let me see if I can share these fairly simply. Let's say it's GonNa cost you twenty five dollars to produce a book that's paper printing binding. The cost for the printer at twenty five dollars is what is going to cost you to produce your book and let's say you can sell your book for Fifty Dollars Good. Looks like you're going to double your money. The problem is in order to get the cost of the book to be as low as twenty five dollars for example you might have to print a whole bunch of them and just keep the math simple. I'll say you have to print a thousand so twenty five dollars per book a thousand a year into it twenty five thousand dollars and let's say that you can sell them for fifty dollars if you work out the math you realize you'll have to sell five hundred books just in order to recuperate. Your initial investment of the twenty. Five Thousand Dollars. It takes to produce the book and by the way it may not be your twenty five thousand dollars. It may be the twenty five thousand dollars of the publisher. It's the same thing they're only going to make that financial gamble. If it makes sense for them so the question becomes. Do you have the ability to sell five hundred books well again to make it simple? Let's talk about self publishing so you put up to twenty five thousand dollars. You produce the thousand bucks now. You've gotta go out and sell them. Well you start with your friends and acquaintances and your family. But of course a bunch of them are GonNa want a book for free so they may or may not give you fifty dollars a book because after all they're your friends and family etc and so let's be generous. Let's say you have two hundred friends and family members all of whom are willing to pay you fifty dollars for your book okay. That's two hundred out of the five hundred that you have to sell in order to break. Even you got three hundred books left to go now who you going to sell those two. You've already exhausted all the easy contacts. You have your friends and family. Now you've got to go out to the general public. Somehow which means you've gotta get bookstores involved which means distributors which means that the Reseller the bookstore is GonNa WanNa make some money and if you work through a distributor. They're gonNA WANNA make some money so you're no longer GONNA get fifty dollars book. You're going to get probably maybe twenty five dollars a book which is barely going to cover the cost of printing and binding. So you're not gonNA make any money on those now sudden you have to sell way more than five hundred books in order to recover your initial investment. Making money with a book is almost an impossible proposition. Now you can. And here's where it gets seductive. There are photographers. There are publishers. Who MAKE MONEY SELLING BOOKS. But the reason they do is because they have already an existing huge market when a famous photographer ansel Adams or well. Let's take somebody who's contemporary to take. Steve McCurry of Steve McCurry wants to produce a book. The greatest chances are he's going to make money on that book because he Steve McCurry because there are lots and lots of people who are fans of his well. How many fans to you have? If you're a very famous individual then maybe you can make money with books but probably for most of us. That's not a realistic assumption. So making money has gotta cross that one off the list because it's probably not going to happen in fact it's probably going to cost money. You might say well. I'll do a blurb book okay. Fine but you're not gonNA make any money on a blurb book because the book that sells for fifty dollars. That's produced blurbs. Probably GONNA cost you fifty dollars to produce it at blurb and so there's no margin there there's no way for you to make money might get your workout in the world but making money through books is almost an impossibility and less. You're already famous. Which always reminds me of that. Great Mark Twain quote when he said banks are always happy to loan you money when you can prove that you don't need it.

How Did White House Press Briefings Go From Daily to Done?
"Brain. GRAINSTUFF Lauren Bogle bomb here in January of Twenty Twenty bestselling novelist Stephen King and Don winslow took to twitter to make a surprising pledge. They offered to donate two hundred thousand dollars to charity. If Stephanie Grisham the Press Secretary for President Donald Trump agreed to take questions from the full White House. Press Corps for one hour. You're in the White House. Press briefing room. The offer reportedly was rejected by Grisham. WHO's since taking the job in June of two thousand nineteen has yet to hold even one former former White House press briefing? Her views expressed an interview with these sinclair. Broadcast Group is that the briefings are unnecessary because reporters get opportunities to put questions to trump himself sometimes over the roar of the presidential helicopter on the White House lawn for the time being at least the trump administration has abandoned what had been in an important part of White House. Press Corps is routine dating back to the late eighteen hundreds before the official position of White House. Press Secretary even existed. That's when President William McKinley. Kenley set up a workspace in the White House for reporters and sent his first personal secretary. John Addison Porter to give the correspondence what the White House Historical Association notes. where I'm I more or less regular briefings? The White House press briefing gradually evolved into a formal event from the time of president. Herbert Hoover in the late nineteen twenties and early thirties. He's to Linden Johnson's tenure in the mid to late sixties White House press secretary's held twice a day briefing sessions in their own offices according to Martha Joint Kumar Book managing the president's message the White House Communications Operation Richard Nixon though no fan of the press still thought the briefings were important enough that he had a swimming pool torn out so that he could convert the space into a meeting room for briefings. That area is now known as the James S. Brady press briefing room in honor of president. Ronald Reagan's press secretary who was seriously wounded during the attempt. On Reagan's life in Nineteen eighty-one during Bill Clinton's time in the White House in the nineteen nineties. Press Secretary Mike. McCurry decided to allow the daily press briefings to be televised that practice continued until the trump white house began barring cameras from briefings in two thousand seventeen before discontinuing them altogether. Oh we spoke by email but former C. N. N. White House correspondent Dan Lowthian who spent five years covering the Bush and Obama administrations. He said I think the briefings were useful full for a number of reasons. First of all it was an opportunity to get the White House response or thinking on an issue on camera rather than a written statement it allowed us to gang up on them around a question they might have been trying to avoid showing them dodge. An answer is sometimes the news briefings also put statements on the record for later. Comparison finally finally every now and then there would be breaking news and as happened after Osama bin Laden was caught lots of great details even if some turned out not to be true. Lowthian Dan who went on to found little park media and to become a visiting scholar at the School of Journalism at Northeastern University recalls that the format for the briefings was fairly constant. He said there was a certain order to who got called on briefings always started with the Associated Press and ended with a thank you from the Associated Press once in a while the press secretary would mix it up a bit but it usually happened around the same time each day and questions from the first two rows came in order. We also spoke by email with Tom. Tom Jones a senior media writer for the POYNTER Institute. A journalism education organization. He said while it's true that the president and his representatives often make themselves available bowl in informal settings such as the White House lawn. It's not the same as press. Briefings the format of shouting out questions under the sound of a whirling helicopter is not conducive to asking complicated policy questions nor pertinent. Follow up questions. The frenzied free for all of these much too brief informal interviews make it much harder to get into the topics. What's that require nuance and specifics? It's so much easier for the president to brush aside or ignore questions. He doesn't like when he's walking along the White House grounds when he or one of his representatives representatives are standing behind a podium a controlled setting they must face the questions that require long substantive answers as opposed to the one or two short sentences that suffice in those informal formal settings let view essentially is shared by a group of thirteen former White House press secretary and Foreign Service and military officials who published an opinion in peace on. CNN's website in January of twenty twenty calling for trump to restore the regular briefings in their view. Having to prepare for briefings helps the government to run better letter. They wrote the sharing of information known. As official guidance among government officials and agencies helps ensure that an administration speaks with one voice telling one story however compelling it might be Lowthian also sees the apparent end the briefings as unfortunate. He said it's a valid criticism that some reporters others use briefings to showboat. However I think when covering the White House briefings aren't important function that allow the public and reporters to maintain daily connections? Sometimes it's routine information other times. An odd question from the back of the room can turn into the story of the day even so Lowthian says journalists who cover the the administration will find a way to get stories he said this new normal might be unfortunate but not paralyzing. Reporters are in the business of getting information whether it comes from the mouth of his spokesperson or sources all across the beltway.

I think it's even more pernicious than that actually I think because we don't have a global definition of terrorism states have been left free to define whom for the like as a terrorist and so what we're finding at the domestic level is some countries for example consider women asking for the right to drive as terrorists and prosecute them under terrorism legislation some states consider persons who protest peacefully in the streets demanding their right political participation to be terrorists under there Domestic Law some for example legislation says any kind of insult or quote dishonor to the state constitutes terrorism so these definitions are so wide it means that in practice what terrorism anti-terrorism work in many states involves simply locking up or restraining or limiting or administrators sanctioning those who happen to disagree with you and that right the right to disagree the right to express the right to protest the right to participate freely in public affairs alright protected by our most fundamental treaties Covenant on seven political rights by the Universal Declaration so it's a huge problem so part from soft law is the other main point to make the second point was that increasingly much of this laws being made in new institutions institution sexually that sit outside of the UN institutions that are not part of the traditional multilateral ace and my report looks two of those one is the Global Counter Terrorism Forum the other is the FATF Financial Action Task Force these entities are small clubs of states come together through mutual south interest and but it's exclusive many states we know that lawmaking is messy for states and when you have lots of states it's even more messy that's part of the barter the fundamental notion that all states are equal and have sovereign equality in the lawmaking process when we create these new institutions and as those are the institutions that are producing much of the soft law who are actually not only excluding human rights because there's very little fundamental structural engagement with human rights by these bodies but also large numbers of states don't get to participate and I think that's a problem from the point of view of sovereign equality it's also a human rights mm-hmm oversee this week terrorists and those who are associated with alleged terrorists have been very much in the news when it comes to northeastern Syria and for many is also of course in Iraq as well I mean what are your concerns about how events progressing this week with special relevance to those families and commute children of alleged terrorists who are in great danger for the mandate is issued a public position it's on the mandates website at the opposite hey commissions ED page in that we make a number of observations and recommendations to states the first is to remember as many states are failing to remember that they have legal obligations to the citizens who find themselves overseas at those include not just human rights obligations but consular assistance obligations those are well entrenched and well established in international law the second thing is to remind ourselves that many of these individuals women and children are in fact victims they are also victims of terrorism. I had the good fortune the responsibility to be in Kazakhstan in May this year when Kazakhstan repatriated two hundred and forty-one citizens from women and children from Iraq and Syria and I interviewed many of those women and their children and what was painfully obvious is that many of these girls were in were went to Syria and Iraq when they were minors they first had sex often unconcerned pointingly as minors which many Western countries would be statutory rape under domestic law they gave birth to children in non consenting circumstances and those children themselves are children protected by the Convention on the rights of the child we cannot and should not ever define women by association to a particular man if that is is the departure of states that's a profoundly illegitimate and frankly undermining of the most basic notion of equality for women so for those who say well they they deserve what they got they went they made the decision to go and surely wouldn't apply that principle for example to women who experienced domestic violence or he wouldn't apply to women who find themselves in precarious circles chances in many domestic situations we wouldn't say you chose to marry that person or follow that person and therefore you have no protection under law it seems to me that that kind of McCurry slope is enormously dangerous not just in Iraq and Syria but on the fundamental notion that we treat individuals individually we assess what they have done individually the mandate has clearly taken the view if certain women if women have been responsible for criminal acts as they are in any country in the world they should be held responsible under the criminal law but bree I'm home and and try them in under fair trial with due process not in states that will subject their axe to the death penalty not in states where other special rapporteurs for example the special return summary and arbitrary executions who visited Iraq in the last two years has has pointed out in situations where their deep fair trial concerns deep concerns about the conditions of detention and most of all I would say we don't we are long past the time where we should be producing circulars guidelines having endless conversations and and and unfortunate hand-wringing about what to do about this problem bear in mind that in other circumstances the UN for example and states have committed to addressing the problem of sexual violence in armed conflict the UN has a special offer for dealing with children in armed conflict so is it suddenly not that all of these rights and obligations that we say apply to women and children in certain conflicts are selective that we get to choose which conflicts we give the does in title mints and Benefits and Protections to it seems to me that would be an abrogation of the most fundamental kind and show a deep and and. and very problematic inconsistency with long term consequences for the notion of the role of the rule of law of equality under law and the right for any individual woman or child to be treated in their own right and to be assessed in their own right and to be treated humanely and with dignity not based on the person to whom they happen to be associated by virtue of birth or by virtue of marriage forced or otherwise

Is that a problem for the bottom line from american public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm ali would google as a company has a long history of internal disagreement and activism but in recent years that internal uh-huh culture where employees are encouraged to argue with executives and with each other and to protest decisions and policies they don't like has become an external culture altered to employees have protested against google over politics hiring how the company deals with sexual harassment and business decisions like whether the company company should do business in china or make deals with the pentagon. Natasha chiku is a senior writer at wired. She wrote september's cover story about tensions at google and and we called her up for quality assurance the segment where we take a deeper look at big tech story i asked her at what point do these employees tensions become a risk to the business it just calls your focus from one area and even if all you're doing is making incremental changes to avoid bad press after a walkout when you are trying trying to compete with jeff bezos and compete with mark zuckerberg and compete with all the startups who all of a sudden in the middle of the tech backlash see an opening for themselves the idea that you have to placate your employees is certainly a distraction or that's how they view it. Are the divisions at google probably happening at every every company like are they a microcosm. Yeah i think so. I mean their internal. Social networks certainly operate like microcosm of the external social networks. I think the difference is that they have decided that google isn't listening and so they're gonna take these debates outside but we've seen somewhat of the same thing inside facebook where there <unk> our representatives who could be described as having like far-right or reactionary right politics and then people who are also on the far left i. I don't know that employees other companies feel like they're still going to have their jobs if they speak out but there are certainly those divisions happening pressure on across the political spectrum on companies from their own employees. Is this gonna be the new normal at google or do you think google is really going to have to work to change the hardest thing a company can do i know but is google going to have to work to change. Its culture in order to survive this level of distraction. I think this is definitely the new normal and i'd i'm not sure that google wants to you know they really do pride themselves on having this open internal forum for debate you know when i talked to who executive for this story and i asked like are you going to try to shut down these internal forms and they said no. It's such a huge part of our culture and i know they they would have such such an internal backlash if they tried to kind of officially clamp down so they might be trying to find ways to <hes> influence the discussion that aren't as drastic as no more <hes> mailing lesser no more google plosser no more kind of talking to the press. Natasha tico is a senior writer at wired at our website marketplace tech dot dot org. We'll have a link to her story. Three years of misery inside google the happiest company in tech and now for some related links one thing natasha who notes in her piece is that google's biggest external protests came in two thousand eighteen when twenty thousand implode walked out to protest how the company handles sexual harassment claims that was sparked partly by revelations that the company had paid android creator andy rubin some ninety million dollars for him to leave google after allegations of sexual misconduct but tika reports that despite some small changes is it google as a result of the protests. Only a few of the organizers of that walkout are still at the company last month. The second of two primary organizers meredith whitaker mccurry left google. We have linked to the internal goodbye. She wrote about leaving which was later shared on medium whitaker said she and the other woman who spearheaded the walkouts both face retaliation taliation which google denies but she also said in her post that she's leaving to work on the ethical use of artificial intelligence technology and that she feels she can't do that work at google which is a little scary and protesting is of course still alive and well inside google just wednesday employees started a petition internally early and on medium demanding google not bid on a big cloud computing contracts with customs and border patrol because of concerns over human rights family separation and and the treatment of migrant children at the border as of this writing the petition had about eight hundred supporters and we should note that it's not only google where employees are protesting company policies postseason business decisions casey newton at the verge points out that google may have just started a trend.

Everything You Need to Know About Hamburgers
"Come from Hamburg Germany? Well, not so much ground, beef shaped patties did originated Hamburg, but it was called the Hamburg steak and it came without a bun after that your guesses as good as anyone else's as to how hamburgers came into being, there's credible evidence that the Hamburg steak may have been served on a slice of bread there also reports of such thing being served around the same time in Boston in Chicago, there at least four other claims of where and win the hamburger was created. Now, the original was called Hamburg steak, we need to address the issue of steak burgers, those came about in about nineteen twenty and in the nineteen thirties, the steak burger debuted at stake in shakes first location in normal, Illinois. The burger was made up from strip from the T bone steak and sirloin. Most of us know hamburgers because of the Thura of fast food restaurants. That populate ways by the way, the industry doesn't. Like the term fast food it prefers quick service restaurants. I'm not sure who they think they're fooling. But there you are. But back to hamburgers worldwide informal eating out is about a one trillion dollar industry of which seventy five percent is fast food of that seventy five percent. Mcdonald's claims eleven percent that works out to about seventy five hamburgers sold every second in India, cow, meat does a Golder well, with a large portion of the population so you can walk into a McDonalds in India and get the McCurry pan a bread bowl filled with chicken curry in France. You can get a croak Magoo kind of like a croak, Madame around seventy one percent of all beef sold in America's for burgers. And there are an estimated fifty thousand burger joints in the US. The semi you want to make great burgers at home. There's a host of advice on how to do it a great burger starts with great meat. And the recommendation is for eighty percent meat to twenty percent fat go at any leaner than that. And the burger just won't hold together when it comes to seasonings simply salt and pepper seems to be the favourite, soap you should probably stick with that. There are different ways you could make a petty, mostly you grab a chunk of hamburger and flatten it, but don't pack too tightly or it'll be tough. Once you've made the Patty's some advise that you pop them in the fridge for at least fifteen minutes or so, to firm them up. Then there's the question of the dimple, the thinking is that if you use your thumb to press down in the center of the burger creating a dimple than the burger won't rise so much that you can't put all the other stuff on top. When it's time to cook, get a pan. Scorching hot cast iron seems to be the favourite, then dropped the patties into it, then leave them alone. Don't. Press on them. Don't look underneath just give them time to Brown and get a nice crust. When you've got that flipped him over and cook them to your desired level of done this. Now, if you wanna diner hamburger, you should forget nearly everything I just told you when you're ready to make your burgers, roll the meat into little balls drop those into your scorching hot Skillet with butter and garlic than press them down with your spatula, get a really solid crust on them and flip them over regardless of the method. If you wanna cheeseburger, and who wouldn't put the cheese on when you flip the burger, then covered with the stainless steel bowl trap to heat. The cheese will go all melting. So now when it comes to hamburgers, you're a smart cookie.
