That's such as blinded by the light. Avance seen they lie. You never feed me feed us. You're gonna give us give them nutrients right right. So that's what happens.

I really can't wait for this discussion. There's lots to talk about. All of it is really interesting to me. So i can't wait to dig in on the show. Thank you trey. And i guess you you've got scottish roots like i do as well the main light right. That is correct. My family heritage is one hundred percent scottish. Jim let's get right down to brass tacks with twenty twenty behind us. Where do you see markets going from here. While is a very good question and if i knew the answers i probably would be sitting in the bahamas rather than in spain at the moment but my general view is wearing a very frothy situation. I mentioned that you agree with me on that. I was entreat but game saw for instance doubled yesterday been the after hours but that s again the robinhood boys end side Mania is inva-. Quite yet but i can't believe that it's not too off from the end my pomme Represents some of the companies are involved in this area. And it's been very hectic period the hub because the amount of commerce has been incredible and but it seems to be a painting at the moment. I on my own deal is that you should stay very well. Clear of overpriced heights salts of. I think you'll lose your money it you said. I'm assuming you're saying that because we're starting to see the interest rates rise to do you think that will finally start to see a cyclical rotation back into value stocks. Already done that. We've already seen that rotation back to value stocks. I mean the text also being week to flat for quite a period. Now i'm actually taza. I think that's going down by at least fifty cent and but will really look at. Is the money. Supply increase in the united states which has been a beginning of the end was phenomenal. People have a twenty five percent which is now hyper-inflationary style. Money increase italian when they probably gonna bounce back with Have also supply capacity constraints which will lead to higher inflation. The fed is clearly in something to bait that because the money supply. Greg is being much much lower in the last two or three weeks. Which is one of the reasons going to stay in the rise in interest rates. Stay away from bombings. Do you think the us dollar per Volatility on way. But you're mlk has been buoyed by massive amounts of stimulation monetary fronting insightful. And it's got to end in tears. Being around and being honest now full that he something he is could say that this is bad with two thousand and also with two thousand seven when we're gonna we're gonna be problem coming one sector particular that's been especially beaten down lately is the financial sector and you've had a lot of success. Investing in things like banks. So i'm curious is now the time to load up on bank. Stocks is a great question. Try i mean my own view. Is that all something. The un's The for long term growth and that stephanie. Being the right way to advance. But i think in the us you've got some great community. All local banks will probably be subject to acquisition as time guys on and a very high altea and the us spines have been recapitalized since the financial crisis lost financial crisis very well than not going to experience the level of owns and penalties that i had in the last ten years and probably goodbyes. In the uk ibm accumulating lloyd's fight which is our biggest for your listeners is all big retail bank and mostly almost taty exposed to the british economy which i think will do quite well actually in the next couple of years Quite good results yesterday. I think non a p respect to be about full-time on a dividend yield seven Would load up on that like the. Us buying said boys very well apply so little danger that you're gonna lose money something like that but you know you plan for fifty cent rise and then you get out of it as you went to the us. It's so i also want to get your take on japan because you've had a lot of success there as well and buffet recently announced that he's invested in the five largest japanese trading houses. So what are your thoughts on that. Move while i think he's a secret small individual if you ask me. I saw to my career by investing working for an investment company that is investing in japan along time ago and nineteen thousand nine not too long ride sausage. Let a japanese market hit. Its ole time which has never been exceeded anita recently. It's still below the level at wald's identity no this trade. But in oughta the wall whenever all the financial institutions inch nineteen forty-eight nikei index was called the mckay dow jones index. And the reason it was cold that was because it was aligned exactly with the dow jones index and so they both them at about one hundred twenty five. My recollection of it was ryan. Then if my recollection is iraq and other period of my career the japanese index was. I would say twenty times higher than but diogenes in the united states. They had this enormous rise and today there had the same level but down is about the same level as the nikkei. So japan is a really interesting is buried Depend is absolutely had fell to move upwards because reached. Those horrible levels are reached a nineteen eighty-nine because japanese companies. A full of cash lakers really good companies in many cases. And holly because johnny sega's have monumental amounts of money on which that running x amount the deputies companies paying dividends so load up on japan. I think that's a very good idea. Well i know you've got your sights set on a number of other sectors as well. So why don't you give us a breakdown of your top three so basically. I look at investment as mathematics. Your big money will be made in something that you really research that you really on the stand and they early into and that you have probably to lhasa fai approach to underneath that the the chilton mock We'll you try and shot. Stand stuff the way. I look at it as the bills. I e the status of your employees worries but.

Oldest Texas Electricity Co-Op Goes Bust After $2 Billion Bill
"11 bankruptcy protection today. Citing they said a nearly $2 billion bill from the state's electricity grid operator following the storm. Marketplaces and you'll reports. Those things can happen when you let the market dictate prices on a grid that's not connected to the rest of the country. Raza's Electric is a cooperative that pays the grid operator to get electricity to hundreds of thousands of Texans. The grid operator is called ERCOT there like a toll road for the electricity system. Costas America teaches environmental engineering at Carnegie Mellon, he says in the February deep freeze, brasses Electric ran up bills many times higher than they normally be. The prices are allowed through the Texas Electricity system to rise when demand is really high, and supply is low. That's kind of the theory of all this the theory behind the largely deregulated market, a system that many are now questioning. David Spence teaches energy law of the University of Texas, he says. In fairness, I don't know that anyone ever anticipated an event like this when they were designing that system. Now, this seems like a black swan event in that sense, But a similar event did hit Texas 10 years ago, and lawmakers decided not to winterize Emily Groubert and George Attack says there's an opportunity again to rethink infrastructure more generally. I think we need to be really, really thoughtful about when it is actually logical to spend a little bit more money here to make sure that these systems actually do what we want them to do for the next several decades. Brasses Electric said before the freeze, it was financially robust. Its bankruptcy family could be an ominous sign. As other Texas power providers success the storm's damage in Austin, I made a Euler for marketplace.

Much to one hundred and ten dollars although business class fares during much still quite high at nine hundred twenty three dollars said clearly not matching on price at the moment and pats qantas feels like it doesn't have to match on price because it recently introduced hot meals during Meal times on many domestic routes in economy class and it will bring them back on old remaining routes from next month in addition alcoholic beverages. Complimentary on all qantas flights previously. They were free on. Some routes like sydney to perth or any route of camera. But on other routes like the fullness city fly routes in brisbane to melvin for example that will only free off to four pm on weekdays. The change means that you no longer need to grab six dollars from your wallet. If you'd like a glass of wine or a beer on conan's flight even if you're flying in economy quantities also bring out a limited edition. Centennary henry beer which is brewed by james squire qantas. This week announced three domestic routes which will begin operating on the first of april. The regional subsidiary qantas link will operate the new direct flights between melbourne and coughs. Haba brisbane in coffs harbour and camera to balance byron bay vision. Australia also announced two new routes this week which will be operated over the easter school holidays and maybe extended as long as state borders remain. Open his demand. Those flights will be from melvin to ballerina and from adelaide to the sunshine. Coast qantas invasion astray. We have also both extended the flexibility available on new domestic flight. Bookings with both airlines bookings made any time. Until at least the thirtieth of april can be changed and unlimited number of times without paying any feats until the end of january next year. He can say cheese to cancel for credit voucher without paying any extra fees. Similar flexibility also applies to reward bookings made using frequent flyer points except the e channel say cancelled as for a full refund of the points and taxes without paying any fees overseas now in the national carrier of namibia and was placed into liquidation. Last week all flights were cancelled and bookings were taken down on the namibian government decided that the airlines mounting debt had become unsustainable although covid nineteen has worsened enemy is financial problems. It was already in financial trouble for quite a fees before now there were media reports that any maybe a could immediately declares insolvency back in september of two thousand and nineteen although those were denied by the airline at the time and it continued to operate until now despite fifteen of the airlines.

Cost of a single Bitcoin exceeds $50,000 for first time
"The value of bitcoin continues to rise a new high for the digital currency bit coin rising above fifty thousand dollars for the first time in the past several months the price of bitcoin has soared nearly two hundred percent with more companies signalling they'll accept the new currency it's been a rocky ride though bitcoin fell back below forty nine thousand dollars after hitting the fifty K. mark Tuesday last week Tesla ramped up interest saying it was buying one point five billion dollars in bit coin and that it would soon be accepting the currency as payment for its cars then BNY Mellon followed and MasterCard says it will start supporting select crypto currencies on its network I'm Jackie Quinn
Is $50,000 BTC the Beginning of a Bitcoin Supercycle?
"What's going on guys. It is tuesday february sixteenth. And today we are talking about. You know it fifty thousand dollar bitcoin and specifically whether it's shows that we are in a bitcoin super cycle so i the news after a week or so of threatening the rubicon was breached this morning between seven forty five and eight am eastern time. Bitcoin punched up above fifty thousand. Now it immediately met cell wall and had a six hundred dollar candle down in is at the time of recording closer to forty nine thousand but to me that technical response is far less significant than these psychological barrier of a fifty thousand dollar being breached so today's special early breakdown is all about that. I reached out to followers this morning. Asking what topics you all thought were important for a fifty k. Show i also popped into a couple of different clubhouse chats to see what people were focused on and overwhelmingly across both of those mediums. The thing that people wanted to talk about is whether this is another indicator that we're in a bitcoin super cycle. I'm going to discuss this. It's going to be the main focus of the show. What the idea of a super cycle is where it came from what it might mean and some different ways to look at it but first let's blast through a few of the other topics folks wanted to disgust. Let's try to start with something that if not negative is sort of dismissive to be honest. It's kind of hard to find those bitcoin stomping face but here we are peter. Brant tweeted fifty. Thousand is a nice round number. That means absolutely nothing. Technically trying to sound smart just sound smart helps to define dumbness now. Let's contextualized. Peter is speaking to a trading audience and that trader audience are not supposed to in their own estimation get emotionally invested in an asset or let narrative shape. What they do. So let's give peter the benefit of the doubt and assume that that's who he's talking to however if he is truly arguing that technicals are all that matter about an asset. The easy rejoinder is that markets are by their very definition a constant give and take between narratives and technicals and frankly narratives tend to reshape the bounds that frame the upside and downside potential of those technical indicators either way for the sake of completeness i wanted to include something sort of negative but i think we can move on next. Let's discuss michael sailor. Just doing michael sailor things about five minutes before fifty thousand was breached. Sailor dropped a new press release from micro strategy long story. Short micro strategy is offering another six hundred million in debt and all the words of the press. Release our legalese. Except for this. Little line micro strategy intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of the notes to acquire additional bitcoins. Pomp summed it up perfectly when he tweeted. Michael sailor is carrying out one of the highest conviction investment thesis we've ever seen in public markets. Incredible to watch okay next. People are wondering how this happened. Or why will. I think the wise a little obvious. We saw an insane amount of positive news last week. Tesla b. and y. Mellon mastercard twitter. Deutsche bank morgan stanley. Every show for the last week has been about some type of crazy positive news. If you've been listening it's hard for that amount of positive news to not have an impact in other words. The specifics of win this fifty thousand dollar price was going to happen. Are for those technicals. That i was mentioning above to figure out but the overall momentum has clearly been in this direction. This actually gets me to another point. I was trying to articulate on twitter. We have this linear time bias. That when things happen quickly we tend to feel like that the thing that was before the you're comfortable with was the correct thing versus the new thing and the new change. That happened really fast. In other words. Bitcoin was between ten thousand. And fifteen thousand for a really long time so fifty thousand seems overvalued but what if instead based on what we now know. Bitcoin was in fact radically undervalued for that. Same ferry long time.
"To understand millan kovic cycles. We have to understand each of the cycles which the earth goes through individually. There are several of them. And it's gonna take a bit of visualization to get the concept via podcast where there are no visual aids. But it shouldn't be too difficult. We'll start by going through the cycles that the earth itself goes through to understand these need to think of the earth as a spinning top when the top spins. it's usually not perfectly upright. The top will be tilted somewhat just like atop. The earth has a tilt to rotation currently the earth tilts twenty three point five degrees. And that is what is responsible for the seasons. However that tilt known as obligatory isn't static it actually wobbles back and forth between twenty two point one degrees and twenty four point five degrees right now. We're in the middle of such a cycle. The time it takes to complete one full cycle of going from twenty two point one degrees to twenty four point five degrees and back again is forty one thousand years the greater the tilt the more sun the polar regions will get in the summer and the more extreme the seasons are the next part of the cycle is axial procession if you can imagine the spinning top again as it. Spinning the axis of the top is rotating. Circle isn't just tilting. In one direction on the earth the direction of our access in the north currently points to the north star players this temporary over the course of twenty five thousand seven hundred and seventy one point five years. The earth's axis will go in a circle that means that not only will the north star. Not be the northstar at some point but twenty five thousand seven hundred and seventy one years from now it will be the northstar again while the earth is going about it cycles on it's wobbling and spinning access there are also things happening to the earth orbit itself for this part instead of a spinning top. I want you to visualize a spinning plate. The edge of the spinning plate would be the orbiting. The earth and at the center of the plate would be the sun the first orbital cycle is the orbital eccentricity cycle the orbit of the earth around. The sun isn't a perfect circle. it's slightly elliptical the shape of that ellipse changes over time. And how much it deviates from a circle is known as eccentricity the eccentricity cycles between point zero zero three four which is almost perfectly circular two point zero five eight which is more slightly elliptical the changes due to the gravitational pull of large planets like jupiter and saturn. This cycle takes about one hundred thousand years. The next cycle is called app sill procession. If you can imagine that played again this time imagine it. As more of an oval plate as the earth is going around its orbit around the edge. The plate itself is rotating that means be closest and farthest point that the earth is from the sun will change over time. This cycle is about one hundred and twelve thousand years. Finally there's a cycle for orbital inclination. That rotating plate isn't flat and actually tilts and the tilt changes over time as well. This cycle is about one hundred thousand years as well and is very close to the same length. As orbital eccentricity cycle each of these cycles involves relatively small changes over long periods of time however they can compound each other or they can mitigate each other all of these cycles have been known for a while somewhere known back as far as antiquity and others were more recently discovered in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in one thousand nine hundred eighty s serbian astrophysicists named bulletin. Millan kovic put all the pieces together. He realized that these cycles closely followed the patterns of ice ages in particular three of these axial tilt eccentricity and procession all affected the amount of sunlight that would fall on the northern hemisphere. These cycles could either cancel each other out to moderate the strength of seasons or they could compound each other making the seasons even more powerful in particular. What really mattered was the amount of sunlight falling on the northern hemisphere. In the summer why the northern hemisphere that is where most of the land is sixty eight percent of the land on earth is in the northern hemisphere land. Can't store heat as well as water. Which means that ice can form on it. Easier ice reflects sunlight which can cause further cooling during an ice age most. The ice accumulates in the northern hemisphere in the south is can only accumulate to a point before it hits warmer water and the ice will cleave off to form icebergs. Glaciers depend on how much of the ice melts during the summer when the earth is at its maximum tilt more sun is hitting the northern hemisphere in the summers if the orbit of the earth is such that it's at its closest point to the sun. When this happens summers will be very intense and ice will melt when he opposite happens when the tilt is at a minimum and the earth is farther away in the summers ice will not melt as much and glaciers will grow. All of these factors individually are rather small at its closest point to the sun which currently happens on january fourth. Remember back to my episode on why we celebrate new year's day when we do there's only about six percent more solar radiation hitting the earth than when we are at the farthest point likewise the axial tilt of the earth only changes a few degrees however these effects can be big enough when they work in conjunction to cause an ice age. The observed strength of ice ages is usually found to be stronger than the millen kovic cycles would suggest leading some climatologists to think that there might be a positive feedback mechanism at work. Something which causes the planet to cool faster than expected. The timing of ice ages is still being worked on. Kovic predicted that i would be about forty one thousand years apart and that was true up until about one million years ago since then ice ages have come at about one hundred thousand years which corresponds to the eccentricity cycle. Milne kovic cycles aren't just unique to earth like the earth. Mars has all the cycles. I just mentioned except that the timing and the extent of the cycles are different. Researchers estimate that mars has had between six and twenty ice ages over the last eight hundred million years. The martian milankovitch cycle might bring about an ice age every four hundred thousand to two point one million years. Some of you might be wondering if mellon kovic cycles are responsible for the recent climatic changes measured over the last several decades and the answer is no milakovic's cycles take thousands. If not tens of thousands of years to change their effects. Camping noticed over periods short as a decade so the next time you think about the earth as a spinning ball in space realize that the spinning the orbit isn't a static unchanging thing it's always slowly changing and there are cycles within cycles within cycles
2021 Golden Crappies
"Birdie a welcome to the crappy awards twenty twenty one inc warranty Virtual crappy this is where the crappies began. Wow y- tonight just like the old days you guys. Twenty twenty one has been quite a year. I'd like to congratulate everybody. I mean twenty twenty with quite a year. Twenty twenty one. You know. it's had some shit to already. Twenty twenty was quite a year. So congratulations to everybody for making it through so much has happened in one year. I just think to what it was like before. The whole corona virus thing. I mean things were so great. I was just like sitting alone in my house eating too much. Playing mario talking to no one watching housewives way. Yeah still pretty much. Do that but seriously This year a virus spread across america causing illness. Sadness and loss but enough about kim zolciak. Okay i know. Just think the biggest plague facing this country before this. Jack's taylor guys you know. I spent a good amount of twenty twenty just playing animal crossing. Which as you it's a game about a bunch of animals stuck on an island up. Some of you may not original named the real house. Believe sorry they laugh to sued new york city already. The punchline about to land and the country has gone through a lot you know. I mean besides the corona virus. We've had political upheaval. I mean america's now even more trillions of dollars in debt. I mean no one in government watches housewives. And if they did they'd get fifty girlfriends and force them all to give america hundred bucks on your birthday. I mean we'd still be in debt but lady liberty would have a gucci bag to show for it. You know the on a serious note. The nation was very shocked a few weeks ago when an angry mob raided the capital. And all you gave them was a pizza. Jennifer eight in and we finally got a new president this week and the nation breathes a sigh of relief. Now look i know all of you have different political opinions and that's fine. My personal opinion is thank god that the orange thing left on my. Tv's ram be read mid no but you know the thing is i mean current events were one thing but so much actually happened in the world but it seemed like so much more happened on bravo. Yeah i mean house was getting fired. So many housewives got fired a record amount. I mean it was a slaughterhouse and it was not the organic kind either. there was a lot of botulism in that meet. Okay housewives caster transforming faster than derek kinsley space. Have you seen that thing. It looks like an elbow anyo on below deck mid hannah. Ferrier was fired for smuggling valium onto the boat and then on vanderpump rules jackson brittany were fired for smuggling food via onto bravo and then we have of course. Our trustee good old friend alcoholism. Okay got real outside of new york trying to convince that she's alcoholic then you've got the real housewives of orange county trying to convince bronwyn that she's not an alcoholic and you got the rest of us sitting over here like what. What are you idiots fighting over k. Do you try and tell the mailman. He's a mailman. You're alcoholics okay. Do your jobs less talking more. Drank he here here here here if we had if we had like a good old fashioned like golden girls mom's earthy monologue clap would be right there and when i can figure this thing out i will move to that button so another thing that happened. So the massive fight between candice amani that sent to'mix ratings through the roof which just goes to show that audiences crave conflict so as a result bravo will now be rebranding top chef as the gail simmons thunderdome of ham my head teddy mellon campus fired in public. Outrage breakout over her diet. I mean people were really furious when they found out that customers were getting thin with starvation. Lots of exercise in a crazy woman bullying them day and night. Berating them for their food choices. They called it all in with teddy. I called it my child head
Tech companies role in the attempted coup
"As i see it we have three core problems related to what happened last week. They're all tech tech related so the first core problem dan mentioned we've got a relatively small group of people who are making decisions for all of us and that is true that that group of people is based on the valley. We also have a small group of people in washington. Dc making decisions that impact us and and that's the supreme court there's a tension inherent between the decisions that are being made in response to involving the evolving nature of our technology speech and society by technology companies and the static laws of the united states. Laws that are not intended to change. There's this tension between the two and resolving that tension. i think is is not just critical to get through. We are right now. But it's it's going to have to be the cornerstone of of how how law evolves over the next couple of years because if that doesn't happen the mechanisms by which we make a lot of decisions no longer makes sense. So part of what's happening right now is an indiscriminate use of terms of service The the the big long post that zuckerberg relayed the letter from twitter with. They are doing is trying to make legalistic arguments. Having to do with the terms of service and the problem is that there was a study from carnegie mellon a couple years ago showing that if we stopped to read all of the terms of service that that are presented to us it would take seventy workdays to eight hours a day. Fifteen at work weeks because the median lanes of privacy policies around twenty five hundred words. Now if you start you know and that's just so if you if you assume that you are reading the t. o. s. and you're thinking about what you were agreeing to write. You can even go further and show that you know in terms of work lost in exchange for us reading all of these terms of service. It's like hundreds of billions of dollars and my point is that tech companies are making up the interpretations of these terms of service as they go along which is in conflict with the laws that they are intended to respond to so indiscriminate application of terms of service to some extent is how we got to now and ultimately. That's what took some of these key figures off of the networks but in some way they don't matter because it's not just trump. Who is the problem here. It's algorithm determinism. It's the systems that are designed to pull content. Not just from him but now from all of these other places so trump may be gone in. Aws may have taken parlor off line but the problem is the infrastructure. Supporting all of this. And i will say one last thing and that has to do with world building because all of this reached a fever pitch and a past couple of days And again. I say this as somebody who's politically independent this the people surrounding donald trump has done a masterful job of world building They created something called antifa they created something called cunanan which may have been bubbling up here and there may have had little fits and spurts but certainly if created. They certainly fostered it. These this aunt have anti first of all. It makes me crazy that way that it's being pronounced as anti there is no long found in the word. Anti fa whatever. The point is short for anti fascist antifa aunt. Whatever it doesn't matter it's made up anyway. So here's here's why. It does matter. Because i was at the state department in twenty twelve through twenty sixteen as we're others talking about intentional misinformation and how this has significant next order outcomes and it would be good to read team some of this in advance to think these things through and it just didn't happen so we really have to think hard because it just taking some of these people offline and taking parlor and gabby you know out of the play store their amira sites already like somebody created a mirror site of a sub. Reddit that it gotten take down this. This doesn't it's virtually impossible to eliminate this stuff. That's right that's right so now we've three core problems that are unfortunately from my vantage point not going away and the compounding effect here is that we've got a transition of power It's cold in a lot of places where americans live and we have no holidays to look forward to Jewelries always sucks. So i mean but this tells us and we've got kobe. That's so so we have to really think through not just what happened last week in a vacuum but also how does the mechanisms that we have to deal with. Some of this no longer makes sense is the
A Detailed Discussion With Kim Chestne ON How To Use Your Intuition y
"It's time to bring on our special guest today. Kim jesse so. Kim is the author of radical infusion of globally recognized in innovation leader and founder of intuition lab. Her work has been featured are supported by leading edge organizations such as out by southwest carnegie mellon university comcast and hewlett packard while working as a leader in the tech sector. Kim recognize that tremendous role that intuition plays in business and cultural progress and set out on a quest to learn everything there is to know about it and as of nearly two decades worth of research and practice she has developed a powerful system that anyone can tap into to access the inner wisdom in ordinary with so really really exciting and kim. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me excited to talk to you tonight. Yeah me too. It's supposed to be in our species night especially in india because it is valley the festival of lights and there's actually a transformation going on in india as well. This started many decades back because as you know india and the valleys associated with firecrackers people becoming more and more conscious as they let go off that external firecrackers and realized the light that is within them the lamp within the essence within. I think that's got me to do our own in to it absolutely. Is that inner light that intellect growing so strong. It's such a beautiful metaphor and it's a beautiful day for us to be having this conversation because it really all does tie together absolutely so. Let's start from the beginning. Where were you born and warm. Was your childhood lane. Well i was born in a little town called carlisle pennsylvania small town girl and You know i think i had. I had sort of your colonial white picket fence upbringing in one thousand nine hundred eighty s america which was really fun and if you remember the eighties and so it was really fun. Time to grow up. And i think that's it's those times it really started to develop my interest in intuition and i had a lot of intuitive experiences growing up so It all kind of stemmed from those childhood years amazing and work sort of influence. Did your family have on your intuitive or spiritual development. Yeah you know. That's a really good question because a lot of people we have this talk about intuition and when it happens to you intuition can be something that people can either accept or not accept right so when you're talking about kids and it's so important with kids because kids have such great in and they haven't really had it beaten out of the yet. It's one of these things still alive and still so connected with intuitive. Things starts to happen with children. Appearance can either encourage that or they can create fear. Be like oh my gosh. This is something to be afraid of or this is crazy. You know so it's You know working with intuition in my childhood it was challenging for me. Because i think coming from a really sort of traditional christian background. There's not a lot of room for intuition. Especially it was more of the protestant. I think in the catholic traditions. There's more of a place for the holy spirit in a lot of mistakes but in my experiences growing up in my little world there was not a place for intuition and so it was something i really had to come to terms with on my own and really facing a lot of fears and a lot of sort of judgment from the people around me and now they get it like my mom's very intuitive she inherited from her. I think it is something that we have a genetic propensity to. But i think there's just not that level of acceptance which in the east which i think is so wonderful about you know eastern cultures. Intuition is so much more integrated in daily life and acceptance right. Yeah that's that's very true. And i think like we were discussing before the india was india also is going to its own journey of realizing how abundant and whilst our own heritage is and going back to our roots realizing that wisdom about intuition and the mind and the soul and yes we're going through our journey as a country has But you know what what comes to. My mind is As i learned more about how children behave like a child always looking at his mom or her mom or her danna his dad for approval right. They're always looking at the so. It's not so much of words but it's also about how the bench reacts to. A certain situation are something that is happening on the word. Maybe that micro reaction that can make a huge difference right in terms of how the child approaches word even as an adult absolutely absolutely in those little foundational moments. They and this is talk a lot about conditioning. If you read my booker you hear me talk today. I'm probably going to use that word. A lot Because intuition is something that is really a counterbalance to this conditioning. That we all get and we get it from those very first moments with our family and with the people that we grow with you know. We're conditioned to think things. Like oh intuitions not real. Or we're conditioned thank like our imagination in our creativity isn't as important as our intellectual side so so part of really balancing these sides of our brains and really coming into our true being is stepping away from that conditioning in releasing it
"mellon" Discussed on Scientific Sense
"You know our detector devices and sort of damage them and some of them you know. We cannot really. They do not function at that time anymore and sobe in or replace them with Actually new technology and this is what We're involved here in at at carnegie mellon of where we sort of have set up a laboratory to build some new devices for our upgraded detector and so so after having been involved in this long longtime man for babies bake you'll come out right now in town halls. The credibility fall to super symmetry principle After having looked at all the data come all. That's a good sort of question as i sort of you know mentioned earlier. I'm still very excited about Continuing to search for for super symmetry but in clearly at some point you know if we really do not find a super tree We will have to sort of declare that you know. If super exists. You know it does not you know it does not exist at energies or masses of super symmetric particles that we can you know Reach with the large hadron collider And again you know it could certainly be that these particles have masses that are just beyond the reach of the karnataka. Collider be we don't know You know that's that's exciting of course to key. Yeah you know. I always think that god has a sense of humor. You know you eat your teeth with some bits But you can't really get that's right. I think you know on nature will office. You know tease us with something. Something new and keep us searching and searching. I don't think we will ever completely understand. You know the whole universe you the dream of physics really sort of to come up with us. You know theory author of everything. But i sort of you know so far. We always you know kept going and tim was always very physics. Felt like oh. I think we understand everything. I completely new to our open like you know. More than one hundred years ago you know. Quantum mechanics opened a completely new area of physics. That nobody else has sort of thought about and the episode of just to keep searching to find This adore that gives us a glimpse into this new world of understanding. We'll take a quick break amended and become back. Obvious talk about some of the machine learning approaches that you're applying to particle physics. That would be great. This is a scientific sense.

"mellon" Discussed on P&L With Pimm Fox and Lisa Abramowicz
"Joined today by near qaysar. Founder of unison advisors and a bloomberg opinion columnist near. Thanks so much for joining us. I know you and tim. O'brien of bloomberg opinion column today. Where you're you're talking about. What congress should consider as it does move forward slowly on a fourth round of fiscal stimulus. What are some of your key takeaways. You think congress really needs to think about here. Well good morning thanks for having me we're You know we think that more stimulus is probably necessary you know the economy is improving. Markets are up. it looks like there's light at the end of the tunnel so to speak with a vaccine coming up but they're still suffering and it's not clear. What the timing around that is going to be so more stimulus. More stimulus probably appropriate probably in around the size of their thinking about. But there's an it's another opportunity to sort of step back and ask. What is the point of the stimulus. What are we trying to accomplish. You know if you just pull the back the lens. A bit We will have spent. If this package is roughly trillion dollars. We will have already spent You know roughly two point seven trillion with a cares act for a total of roughly four trillion dollars. Four trillion dollars could do a lot of things. I mean you could infrastructure. It could bolster education and public health And and we're suggesting that we just take a step back and maybe give some bigger thought to The impact that kind of money could have. I mean tire economy. Not just certain segments of it. So it's interesting near. I think some of the issues here. The concerns here. The discussion points here are how much should go to. Individuals versus how much should go to maybe industries and companies to support employment and growth. How much should go to states and municipalities. How do you think congress is thinking about this. And where do you think they will allocate some of This upcoming stimulus. Well you know based on what they said. It sounds like this We'll see what the final details are. But it sounds like this latest round. Relief is going to be It's going go to supplemental unemployment insurance for unemployed americans. It'll go to small business..

"But i would expect that coming out of that. We're gonna see to differences in terms of approach. Broadly speaking one is i think will be a focus on a broader range of issues so again not just Economic issues but issues like human rights for example. I expect we'll see more focus on that from them by the administration and even in the the economic issues. I think we will see a focus on trying to come up with long-term solutions to those issues and and again it's sort of a broader range of economic issues that we faced with china including In the technology space the second difference. I expect that we will see is working with other countries and building alliances. You know the united states is not the only country. Certainly that has concerned with china. And i think the us will address his concerns directly with china. But also i expect the vitamins station. We'll be looking to build alliances and be doing that in concert with other countries that share those concerns The last thing i would say. Is you know the President-elect by the bay beta major commitment during the campaign in terms of our investment in technology The united states unlike china are invested in the united states comes from the private sector. And i think that's appropriate but it's also great to see that this administration is going to be focused on putting public sector significant public sector funding in two basic rnd investment. I think that's a really important part. Is us interesting so victoria. I guess as it relates to try to one of the more immediate things that the incoming administration will need to address is tiktok. I'm not even sure where we are on the tiktok issue. Can you bring us up to date. In of the administration. I think the administration secrecy and i think what they've said is that it's too early for them to say. Okay you what. I guess what i would say more. Generally as i don't think this is an administration where policy is going to be determined by any one particular company in general. I think it's going to be an administration.
