"The most economic and suitable the transport options. You know for different applications and use cases. Yeah we'll certainly a lot of initiative the momentum from many different corners of the industry You know other other reaches as well. So i think that you know. I think we're gonna see a lot of you know that. Momentum continue over the past over the next two years and so i think you're right the basic but kind of continuing onto the idea of application. So so based on your research initiatives. You're seeing now which domestic sectors in the mena region. Do you think hold the most promise. For eventual hydrogen application from both the technical ended demand point of view. That's an interesting one in europe. It's probably slightly different. So of course the focus should be to green to fossilized the energy systems in maine before even thinking about expert. It will be probably a bit of a parallel development. Realistically speaking which is also k. But the domestic use cases. They vary from country to country. So if you look at the country. Like morocco morocco. Today's importing around two million tonnes of the monja every year which is equivalent to have a billion dollars and You know. Morocco importing ninety percent of primary energy resources. Could of course well green these dirty ammonia imports which is a alone. Probably something like six of it opportunity..

"Maybe to close also has a few projects actually to announced a one south and dukedom and another one so oman also has plans to realize a green hydrogen project followed by solar and wind energy. Yeah it did so. That's quite a few things. What's the timeline for most of these. It you know as far as when the startup might be seen while dubai project is only a pilot project but it's more or less often running the larger projects so neom has a timeline to be fully operational by twenty twenty five which is quite embiid. That's really a bold statement you know for a project of such size. Morocco is hundred megawatt project. So this will likely be operational earlier would say oh man. I think didn't disclose timelines but it's probably similar that something like Nayoan in arabia and yeah. There's probably more to come so I would assume that you know In four years from now by twenty twenty five we will have a definitely few gigabytes of green hydrogen projects operational here in the region. That's really interesting. So lots of really good early efforts. so so. So what advantages do you think that the Kind of looking further down the line when some of these you know these pilot demo projects and some of the ones that are larger scale are more established. What advantages do you think. The mena region has as hydrogen producer and supplier x. order Especially with the renewable energy costs Particularly for solar and wind being among the lowest in the world Do you think that men. A green hydrogen production Could be competitive with a low priced hydrogen projects in europe. absolutely one more realistically. A probe outcompete even including transport costs in europe and declared objective obviously to europe being a primary energy importer having been so for decades importing today eighty percent of primary energy to one to import a green electrons and molecules. So this is an integral part of the european. Hydrogen strategy which was published in july last year and together was a hydrogen europe. We could contribute. Was the two times. Forty elektra loser initiative in this respect now here the region as you rightly point out has amazing Wind and solar conditions among the lowest cost in the world so give flavor. We are last year's cost. One point three five cents per kilowatt hour the latest ten w we are below two sense of the twenty nine hundred nine winton and saudi arabia. So it is reasonable to assume that in a year from now we'll hit one cent per kilowatt hour for solar in countries like you or saudi and wind is also fast going below to sentence so this alone also given the amazing combined solar and wind sites where you achieve high capacity factors which are crucial to have as many long load islas for electric as possible. This is one very important ingredient. The second ingredient is i would say The existing infrastructure and the nature of the business. If you look at for example assisi has obviously been a the leading was oil and gas exports. So there are potentially a lot of synergies most on the infrastructure side but also on the client side to step by step compliment and of course he plays as less and less oil and gas will be needed or the less and the next decades an become. Let's say a hydrogen export..

"You know we really inspire heading on a hydrogen size so What we obviously alliance a here. First of all to bring together people to have a discussion platform. But then obviously you know who work with public sector to stakeholders will to advise you know to show business cases from technical from an economical point of view. Little bit the bridge between europe and the middle east and north africa but also globally and in terms of concrete projects. Twenty twenty has truly been not only globally but also in. The region really was a massive announcements. One y'all ready mentioned the neon project and saudi arabia five billion dollar a green hydrogen and green ammonia project with approximately four gigabits of joins solar and wind generation was probably something like a two gigabyte electric loser capacity. So this is an advanced stage by some of our partners was acapella and neom and addition election american company called a products guaranteeing offtake as well. And so this is hopefully getting financial. Close this year and it's been obviously allied house projects not only regional but globally. You ready pointed out to the first pilot project in the us which has been started two years ago at the mohammed bin rashid. Al maktoum solar park in dubai which has around a gigabyte of sola. Pd operating and the local utility diva together with siemens kicked off this project. And it's more or less ready now Understanding tests commissioning so. This is obviously a lighthouse. Project wouldn't be the first operational one just an last week. The bold announcements in w by siemens end a mazda mbala on significant green hydrogen. And also if you'll plans in abbey so this is actually both announcements was quite significant implications. And we've seen announcement in egypt bay recently also just at the start of this year again. Our partners demands was the minutes of energy in egypt and to point out that morocco in north africa pretty advanced so there has been a lot of planning on green ida queen ammonia projects and when the german hydrogen the national hydrogen strategy was announced june last year. That was actually the first. Kojak was which was signed by the german government. Funded by two billion you're in national corporation facility off the german hydrogen strategy. So i think all of this is quiet two significant developments all only very recently so this can make us confident and these projects will become one more complete will of course be developed and built in reasonable timeframe and was much more to be announced oman..

Information so i'm adrian bloom editor in chief of hd tech and your host fridge to talk and this week we'll be talking with cornelius mathis ceo of dia desert and about the hydrogen strategy in the middle east and also what day is reached recently launched hydrogen advocacy organization. The meta hydrogen alliance is doing to further that strategy. So before we get started with the discussion. I'd like to remind you to share and subscribe to the to the hd tech talk podcast for more expert discussions on technology and trends in the hydrogen sector is easy to subscribe. Just click the subscribe button on itunes or blueberry so. Now i'll start by asking. Mr mr mathis to tell us a bit about his role in Desert energy and the formation of hydrogen. alliance ranch. Think you first of all for having me. It's a true pleasure and topic. Hydrogen obviously has become quite hot. Not only in the region but globally. So i'm the. Ceo of the desert energy. We saw a public private sector network. Or you can say kind of think. Tank based out of the uae active region for almost twelve years now and l. is obviously here to boost to energy transition with desertec sweep on zero. So it's all about green electrons and molecules and green molecules indeed hydrogen and glean hydrogen has over the last few years you know complimented our new vision but i think it's Important to point out that we look at the energy transition from a holistic point of view. So how then tie energy system can be moved to old towards a more sustainable and emission free energy system and tastic. That's thank you for that information so We've been hearing about different hydrogen initiatives in various countries in the mena region. And i know some are quite advanced such as the green hydrogen projects that are planned for saudi arabia's neon city And then also there's a green hydrogen project planned in abu dhabi knowing some other countries are starting to take serious. Look into hydrogens essential. So can you. Share are just kind of an overview of the major initiatives that are happening in the region. And how the men hydrogen alliance might be involved with any of those. Was that pleasure. Adrian show looking back a few years from now also. Renewables has become a huge success story over the last ten years. Now there is. Let's say a huge capacity and sold among the world's lowest prices so this obviously makes queen hydrogen possible now on hydrogen. We've been working over the last four to five years on the topic Hydrogen and more recently when it we go. We published a north africa europe. Hydrogen manifesto saw a great deal of interest so this boorda's to launching the mana hydrogen alliance. Also thanks to my colleague.

Coco Gauff stuns Naomi Osaka at the Australian Open, taking a straight sets win in the third round
"Cocoa Gov. We talked about her the other day and how she comes back in matches says he dropped a set but then as the comeback. He's done incredible number of times the two years. She didn't need that today the fifteen year old over Osaka six three a six four defending champ. Kp what does it mean and are you willing to say the future is upon us of course futures are put us. You've got to love the cocoa right. Look what she did. She extinguished will stock of their. Who beat her? The last time out in a in a in a slam She got by Venus Williams earlier. She's advancing quicker and faster than anyone thought. We've had three sixteen year old winters winters. I believe in the women's side and Slams Austin and sellers and so that's what her opportunity is here. Right now with Serena out of the mix of course course is still there who beat her last time out so she's got to get over that and then some other really good players out there but this is a chance for history right what he page which you can see improvement. I mean she's the only player very joe neither side men or women to get to the third round and win in in three majors or I three majors so you could see the improvement. Let's look at her serve. I think that's the most important thing that I saw was that she was the last time she did lose. Who's she was around? Forty five percent of first serves seventy five percent in this batch. I mean think about the difference there that we're talking and her experience now that she's able to actually do more things because she has been here before he does not. She still has nerves. But we saw with a double-fault twice in a row except that she's going to improve on that as she goes along becomes. It's absolutely remarkable just historic the numbers. I mean she's the youngest player to beat a top five opponent on the tour and nearly thirty years that was Jennifer Capriati Serena who came forward but actually the number that jumps out to me. The most Tony was seventeen eighteen. That's the number of unforced errors. She had which was about half of what saga had. And I think signifies the level of poise. She's playing with which must be infuriating. ASAKA UH admitted. It was infuriating losing to someone that much younger than her. I know some of the fellow panelist today show. How about that Thursday? I'm just glad we're not talking about how Osaka might never win again. because she got beaten by someone that sheet so easily chip you and we're talking to mean to menas point Most of the players that are in the Australian junior open right now are older than cocoa golf off. That's how young she is. She's doing this at an age that we just haven't seen before and everybody's points are valid the poise. That's there the ability to play without too many errors in the future is

Why Yael Aflalo Created a Sustainable Fashion Enterprise
"Yeah L. It's very nice to see you thank you thank you and we're going to talk about entrepreneurship today we're going to talk about sustainability I think to start sustainability is still much about personal values in company values etc etc what what was meaningful to you growing up you started your first business when you were super young what matter to you probably a typical preteen and teenage girl and very concerned with appearing attractive and cool to to my peers so you weren't thinking about whether or not you're you're dressed as student body president none of that stuff for me just and what made you were you nineteen when you started your first am yes what made you decide to do that. At the I'm so passionate in Israel really cool when I was nineteen and I knew this like this like Indian in the past Menas and I went and I bought them and turn them into these drawstring skirts and sold like forty of them made my rent money how did you know how much to charge I'm not sure exactly did not like it wasn't like a cost of goods sold expert I just was like it costs me you know thirty dollars to make this skirt so I'll sell them for sixty I probably doubled it something maybe like well now you are a cost of goods expert I really so your First Brand Skol Yahya ruin it ten years you had yes ten years and I think we've talked about this before but what was kind of the reason that you decided to wind it down and start over and do reformation heated it for so long so many years not why did you hate it I hate it wholesale so like you have to go to like I would I would make these jokes there's a show called Coterie so it was like I would make these jokes that I was going to get married at Coterie and I was GonNa have my kids are Gonna I was Gonna Die Coterie because it was like between Coterie and intermittent I felt like I was always at market yeah I mean and you're just like sort of like begging trying to convince buyers to buy staff and they're buying it in they're buying the wrong stuff and you have to guarantee itself through and it was and then it would be like let's say coteries in February right and so signed the following September but you know all production and moved to China and my orders with China had been due at the end of December early January and it was just like this thirty day difference the stores would never agree to give me the orders when I actually needed them for the factories so you would have to guess and it'd be like this is ridiculous system guest how many to make and then went to the show and tried to convince people to buy the things that you actually had inventory and this is how it works so there's a frustrating things I mean there's more frustrating things those are just sort of some areas to highlight and now it's ten or fifteen we talk about this on the site all the time wholesale and that model and to me it just it's crazy to me that so many people still do it I guess it's because you can get money up front but how did you we're people already realizing that that model wasn't GonNa work no no there wasn't any other model back then there really wasn't dnc it was but it was like club Monaco or J. Crew there wasn't like DC startups eight. Yeah wasn't the Internet so it was like the only way you're going to do it through brick and mortar and that cost more money so the the problem with a brick and mortar store is that you don't really need that much quantity so with one mortar store you need like twelve units twenty four units thirty six units it's not really enough to hit minimums so you have to subsidize that business for a long time so what so you hated it you were annoyed by the system it was it didn't make sense to me it wasn't logical and was not very inefficient system and you did something very you you had didn't you have like a sub brand at urban outfitters and you kept that going so that you could restart and yeah something else so basically closed down by which was like took a year like for a nine months of lying has you have to like pretend you're still open to you collect your bill so like we had to make fake sample line that we like showed to the stores that we knew we were never going to show up yeah I'd like a fake leg answering machine like one or two people that were like helping winding down actually one other women two of the women that helped it down actually went to go work out you know continue work reformation now that's funny it's really funny it's great so we went we wind it down and then at the time the recession was you know full steam ahead the businesses that were doing well we're like Zara agent Adam and urban outfitters and so we contacted urban outfitters and we said hey we want to work with you and so we started making private label and white label products for urban outfitters and that's how we made money and how did what was the idea for reformation back then so I didn't so when I close the business I didn't really know what I wanted to do kind of just started doing a few things some of them now defunct but one of them was to make money I make clothes for urban outfitters and so that was like was lucrative and good and then I also owned a building in l. a. that housed our old offices but like there wasn't during the and I couldn't rent it out and so there was a store downstairs that was just md it was next door to kosher pizza place remember and Kosher Pizza Guy was so mean and our store always smelled like pizza kosher the pizza yeah and so we had a I said you know we have this empty space what are we going to do with it and so we started a the store called reformation and we just actually just bought vintage clothes and like clean them and maybe hem them made some modifications and sold them in our store and that's reformation was for three years to three years and did you back then as it started to pick up scenes did you think okay I'm going to do repurpose vintage or or upcycle vintage and that's going to be the business because it right now I mean you're seeing it h. m. is going to have a second hand section in their store a lot of all of these retailers are thinking how to get into up cycled a lot of young designers are using materials and and vintage clothes to make new collections. It's having right now but back then it wasn't I know it was a thing but it wasn't on a scaled thing so I never thought that we would be able to scale taking vintage clothes and changing them yeah it's just really hard to scale it doesn't it's not like economies of scale there's no like assembly line so it can't really lots of clothes I was still in my cool attractive at that point in my life and then he went on went on a trip to China with I was working on a project for urban outfitters to make shoes for them and that's when I kind of had this moment where I was confronted with this really you know terrible horrifying being pollution in in China so it was like you can't read it was just really bad by basically realized that that I couldn't continue doing what I was doing and I needed to do something different and so after a few days thinking about it I really is you know what I need to start a sustainable fashion
Where the fake Trump media massacre video came from, and other things to know about it
"All right so for those of you that might not be totally into this story or understanding where it's come from this was totally trending on twitter all day a and it just so happens that I spoke at the conference where this is the center of controversy so there was a horrific museum video where you're donald trump massacres fake news media now essentially there's these videos that go around and there's this community of people that love the president so much they'll take popular videos superimpose the face of Donald trump onto somebody kickboxing or somebody with a lightsaber fighting people they disagree with so I guess the most this one was the CNN which with precise which was the body slam when the wwe one because the president shared that one and so this particular video was from the movies kingsman which is about the British Secret Service or something starring Colin Firth actually doesn't fourteen. I've never enjoyed those movies I it's called the dark comedy only for some people only some people very cheesy I never liked that movie right somehow killing people's funny but no there is a whole genre it appeals to a certain the demographics never liked the not Nora Nora I've tried to watch it a couple times is just not really my my genre so anyway this memoir so those that don't seem to have to define what a menas because we do have some people okay so mean is what is the best way to find a mean kind of like when you know it Ben Johnson Adam Benny Johnson chief creative officer turning point USA so look amine is a picture or a video that satirizes or explains an issue in a short sound bite that usually his comedy or uses wit I guess that's a good way to put it that it turns it on its head flips it sure Iran nick insightful. Almost here's the best way I can describe it it's the Internet's equivalent of political cartoons that a good way to put it share okay a modern digital essentially this scene in kingsman which I don't understand how this scene was really funnier incite fuller enjoyable the watch but allegedly there was a scene where somebody walks into a church and kills a bunch of people that was the scene Church massacre and they superimposed Donald Trump's face to be the guy that's killing everyone and then he's killing the fake news media CNN MSNBC as well as Democrats like Barack Obama Nancy Pelosi unless we totally denounces videos unequivocally and totally I don't think it's funny to show violence against other people I think it's it's not my not my taste I don't think it's funny people I find that Kinda dark humor interesting I'm not one of those people however he let's just get through some facts they say this was shown at the president's Miami resort so all of the media covering this is insinuating as if the president approved this or this was at his resort he didn't at all okay so I was at this event it was a unique event it was one with a lot of energy and a lot of people that were really excited to be there and Donald Trump junior Sarah Sanders governor on descent data's thankful to be invited you know so this video is shown in a side room in a breakout room against a wall in a very kind of make shift CAPAC- acidy and Don Jr. Ron to Santa Sarah Sanders myself and Corey Lewandowski knew nothing of it we didn't know about this until the news actually broke and now we're being lumped into this I might have spent forty minutes at this event basically the entire time I was at the event was when I was speaking in and out and Laura Ingraham that night and then I flew to Detroit super early the next morning I didn't hang around it was not but they're acting as if we were behind this entire thing the headlines are all all sort of inferring it's like Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Donald trump junior charlie kirk and this
Lisa Meiring CEO of Radical Results Consulting providing success and mindset strategies
"Jumping and getting I often find that those morning hours if I can just once I moved from that space of me into the doing that if I don't jump into my hi doing with emails in kind of monotonous kind of task but much more focused. This is a big project that I'm working on right now if I he is the first ninety minutes out of the day as a way to dive in those in most important projects I can really stay on track on what I'm putting out into the world I completely agree keeps with an intention and bogus said canvas highlight ration- and I it's so I think in getting your phone out of your sight for the first hour you can't clay of your ability because otherwise your email in the messages in voicemails he's not take over and run. You opposed to you running the day and they're low energy task right. I mean e mail. Social media are going to be low energy task so use. Here's your high energy task with those high energy create creativity type projects in that first part of the day and that's really powerful yet exactly a huge assessed now just having that positive and create a time with yourself and your attention absolutely so these are great practices for everybody. You be thinking about it. How do you start your day now. How do we attract more of what we want and charlize well. The law attraction is always working. I I think always address to get really what you want. The track what you want it's thinking out outed what you can't just think about what you really want. We have to do something with awe. Even if you manage to think about what you want several times a day is another step to take contract to get in harmony with those desires so the process that I I've used in learn. It is released with building idea image in your mind of what you want and getting crystal clear about it. Sometimes that's the trickiest. Heartless also helps script. Kelsey get clarity by the way Nice holy image okay. Here's what I want then. You get emotionally involved with it. That's how you internalize. Imagine you know the thoughts when they're mixed with feeling or emotion they started to constitute force which starts to to attract what you want and they are okay. This is my goal and year. How would I feel when it when accomplished absolutely my husband and I am popping champagne or just being excited foul and I think that's a really important designation because we can you know we can envision Asian. Hey I want a new car. I want a new whatever you know. They're like we can't just put our our mind around and just assume that it's going to show up but if we are really wanting to step into the feelings and the emotions of that what that success might feel like liked. You're wanting to attract into your life then you can you can you can play with the feelings of how how how you're stepping into it. How Hi you're moving through it. you know what does it feel like when your you know on vacation in your with your husband having having a glass of wine or champagne. Why does it feel like that's a different level of attraction than just envision it and it will all come. You're so exactly writings. The there is a stage where people of inside mall for Vision bores invisible those photos boat it doesn't isn't we don't just get to ensure our week. Get the motion of is his internalizing it ourselves. It's it's exactly right being mindful careful what we oftentimes get emotionally involved with what we don't want and we'll start to see that too the right right if we're play. We're playing too much on that what we don't want we continue to attract more of that in so yeah. I know you already mentioned something about ritual but I want to just go back to that because I agree that rituals are just such a key important part of how we live our alikes. If we can create ritual recently I've been playing I've been reading the book called Lunar Abundance which is just fabulous book and it's really about tapping into into the lunar cycles and and you know finding the rhythms every yen in your young and it's such a beautiful way to do it. I mean when I rebranded rand my company. A few years ago I played with eclipses so I love to play with. Ritual been something for me that it's that speaks to me. I find like like my inner. Wisdom flows up through me. It comes to get visions. I get ideas. I get breakthroughs when I get when I bring more ritual into my at life sometimes that means just getting out in nature going on a hike and it could be as simple as that. What are your rituals you incorporate into your life and why yeah so what we talk about in that morning time that creating intention for your day and just orienteer- you having south law than awesome moment it doesn't have to be at people as the hours of time you know it doesn't have to be but however it is for you. Just start with win in your day whatever that looks like and then the ritual how you end your day a heat is ultimately. Oem Orton arts walls. your evening rituals yet so romy anything it's almost it's consistency and doing things repetitively elite too but the end of the day really writing your four. I'm laid to rest on my day like okay. So the beginning of day is intended attended. I need it and not in a judgmental way beating ourselves up ways that we can grow can often you're going to celebrate what you gotTa do what you got done in a day just because so often we moved through so much and we don't even recognize what we've we've accomplished in a day. It's so true absolutely and then even thinking about with going back to that goal so what do I what am I really going for. What am I working towards before you go precisely because it goes into your self conscious mind and while you sleep it combining solutions ideas which is powerful with setting ritual is so often this may be helpful or unless nurses disagree on one thing at a time you know. I think we try to do so much. You donate started morning routine. Are you're going to add this virtual and it becomes overwhelming what I did is. I looked at my day things I didn't I knew you in my heart weren't survey me or or kind of kept me from achieving when I was working for L. A. or whatever it may be. I started MENA work on recreating at our ritual in that space replace that that negative and then worked on it all the time. I Master Astor yeah. I think that's a great point is do you know do something you know one thing at adopt new practices one thing at a time the other thing. I find find useful with my rituals even on my morning rituals. I am not because I am such a doer and I tend to get into the same sorts of things on a regular basis. I actually make my my morning time. I give myself flexibility in what I do with that in writing so I have that hour of time that I set aside but some days I feel like Meditating Sundays. I feel like reading some days. I feel journal in her. Some days I feel like just moving moving in so really stopping and pausing announcing myself in my body. What does my body need right now. knowing. I have the space to do whatever that is in. That's served me well because I am otherwise I can become just a creature of habit and then it's it's not listening into my inner guidance. Benner Guide inside that inner compass agree with you and I think a keeps new anything I I have some some routine space open. I mix it up a lot too much power and then when it makes it fun his refreshing where you're not gonNA stuck in a Rut but surly serving you yes yeah and and for me. I think that's really taught me by approaching at that way to listen and more to my inner intuition versus just doing what I think I should do and I think that's a I can fall into the things that I should do the because I am you know if you look at my strength finders. I'm an achiever like to get stuff done right so I'm I'm really good at that that piece of slowing down listening to what what my body thinks I need is really a different way for me to think about it one hundred percent and in giving yourself grace to say it's okay okay up and not follow the quote on. Ho Rule that I read in a book to follow what your heart your intuition instead

"That we constantly have like everyone that just gets the older always like reminisced I mean but were the age of the Internet because we watched the Internet. Okay that's kind of crazy. That's Kinda monumental if you yeah yeah do you remember your first experience online. Did you ever being influenced about twitter like you gotta get on this thing called twitter. You gotTA had a sign up and I was like what is this but I remember my space to yes seeing like at festivals and like okay guys. We're going to go do an interview my space. We're going to create mice means accounts counts funerals like I don't want anybody in my space yeah yeah or facebook but I never really got on ten of that. Do you like social media like what's your opinion of it. Oh boy isn't always like a mixed bag. I mean I did at first and I think I still do in the sense that I feel like I can communicate specific things like aspects about myself that other people aren't aware of whereas like back in the day I remember finding this article goal that I'd done an interview this magazine and it was so severely misquoted. Oh literally thought like did you just pay somebody else yeah and like quotes quotes and bold that I'd never said and you know that was part of my process of just sort of being like you know disheartened like I felt like eight gun when I was younger that you know if you read something it was like pretty authentic. You could believe what you what you were reading right and so that wasn't the case so with social media. I felt like I had a little bit more control and I would get this response from people like Oh. I didn't know that about you and I'm a very like a correct eclectic aquarian so so that was kind of fun like people getting to share different aspects of myself and I didn't have to wait able to do it or count on other people but there's all the other well. No no no. It's actually there's so many like double edged swords with it. You know what I mean. Sorry 'cause like I mean it's great to meet people like I'm so glad I got to message knew that meant so much music. Oh my my God so exciting and that kind of thing but then it's also like you let a Lotta assholes. A Lotta assholes has have asked us to you which yeah which is hard you know yeah you could just block people but also it's kind of like why are you bring your bad energy over here you know and like in the pressure I think I know good you know the likes. Followers are thinking thinking about getting rid of likes just that whole kind of like I remember having conversations recently with somebody about this and and it was funny because they knew they themselves had experienced this and they he knew a lot of people at the same time who were just sort of exhausted with a half to keep up like this relevant yeah we oppose joost in and five days out yeah. It's like a job it really is. I mean it is essentially my job because I get paid to promote things and I that's how I make all my money's through your social media which is crazy crazy for me because it's like I can't even complain really about it because I'm like Oh. I wouldn't have an income if it wasn't for that you know like ads and and you know companies that I work with endorsements things like that like that's how I essentially make all of my money which is insane but it's also like it is it's also let pressure are constant pressure like Oh. I haven't put five days in. I have friends that will tax me pictures with captions and go. Do you think this is good or showed you this one like polls. Oh so much thought to it. You know what I mean yeah and curate it great. I'm GonNa ask you know your recommendation. Semi people write me a better caption okay. Here's a better caption and obviously yeah please. I do for free for you. Please give anything but yes so you so you spent pretty much. Get your whole younger years in L. A. If you've gone on some dates from crazy dates I know you have I mean I wasn't really that person because I got married married for the first time when I was I just turned twenty one twenty one yeah I read yeah. Wow didn't have a lot of those. He's like baddies. Oh God this guy's a nightmare sort of like kept to myself and then now and then I was always like in longer relationships shows like I never picked up on yeah all healthy. Yeah that's crazy. It's not like those you know my own challenges like in those relationships right right yeah. I wasn't like on the scene and that way like I was sort of living at that time of my life like I would be now. Yes I was married for five years my first marriage wow that's great. That's actually a long time caller yeah. I mean Hollywood. That's like fifty years pretty much like when you meet someone who's been married five years really well like it's very good. I mean honestly I've only been married for like half a year really yeah three years at this point but it's kind of funny because people are like you know. It's like it's crazy I mean and then you meet people married fifty years yeah. That's a long time remember when I met Alice Cooper you did and he's the nicest guy and you thought he'd be gnarly so sweet and was talking about his wife and his family and they've been married like something like that really five plus years yeah. Don't quote me on other. Some was so impressed yes. There's some people that you're like. Oh my God. They've been together for adverse happens the guys there. Is You know possible. It is possible my my friend and I were talking about this thirty thirty two you believe in everlasting love and it was such a loaded question I was like I don't know I mean I do but then I kinda don't I know because they feel like people grow yeah and change and it's impossible for I think people to grow and change at the same time well yeah unless you know well. That's like the answer answer for everything though like different aspects of it and static right right yeah it's. It's kind of funny because I'm like you know you live your life and you've had so many I mean I've had so many long term relationships as I'm sure you ha and at that point in those relationships I was like Oh this is the one forever yeah ask. How many times has that happened? You know what I mean like that. reason season or a lifetime whatsoever heard those no I think you can google anything but sort sort of innocence. It's that like people come into your life for reason Ha Ho those people can be like maybe it's just somebody that you know you meet very briefly and they communicate something to you. Last touches you and changes changes you write or set you up for the next part of your life yeah and then there's sort of like a season like maybe there's somebody who's been. You've been very close with for a summer right and then something happens in that relationship and it just transitions and then there's lifetime so there's sort of like a a category yes in a sense of like like I'm sure you I have this to you can sort of reflect and they're the people that you know maybe if you don't see them like all the time right there's still throughout your in Life Ryan and then there are the people that sort of come and go and these stronger waste influence you as much as it's so crazy that you brought that up because I was just thinking today. I was just thinking taking how everything happens for a reason. I know that such a cliche saying but I was an even just now you mentioning this as you know I got my start like on vine even remember making videos on there but I was dating a guy before viner's doing stand up and I only had a blackberry member blackberry. Xt Tech Certain people still have blackberries act like they don't exist but they're great yeah but they don't have like the you know the aps in that kind of thing can't record video and I remember I broke the the comedian and star dating a new guy and he was like I'm GonNa get you an iphone and I was like I want an iphone all all at buttons like on want change change right now like buttons but then he got me one and he was like just riot stopping such a little brat monitors like it's flat the screaming flat freak me out. There was nothing to put physically push. Is Ask sidekick. Oh my God i the best okay guys you have flipping through with one hand bedazzled diamond studs is on guys. You need to Google sidekicks those you could order the stickers yes like what do they call. Those like a car as you could wrap remind the roster. She's big Bob Marley Fan. I love it data right so many speaking of seasons in phases so so then the guys are dating then he got the iphone and that literally like a few months later vine came out oh and then that's I would've never if I never ever dated him. I would never got the iphone none of would have been on vine and never been been here in this room with you right now. How crazy yeah yeah but but it's all physics he grow you WanNa go that row these chief John Physics Legu- She's like I had an archaeological dig in my backyard can get as deep as you? It's all it's all connected yeah yeah. It only makes sense. I think you know when we're able to pull back from from it later. Do you think are only life todd. Put me on odd see I know I know I love hearing the People's opinions I don't know I believe what I believe is that I don't know yeah my religion and I and I guess if I were to believe anything anything I believe that everything's energy so based on that. I think it opens up a lot of really interesting questions and conversations as far as like totally you know universes and you know holograms and whatnot and you know I mean what I like to think that there's something more yes have. I had moments in my life where I felt like so unusually connected to something or a particular place. That's like so opposite of me then I'm like have I you know as you had a near death experience. Oh have you I mean I just had my last one lego week ago. Yeah yeah LE- yeah I posted about about it. I didn't see my husband and I what the Hell Great Ne- follow me..

Oh yeah obviously to like fit in in some way and I don't know I don't remember like the moments later. This is a smart idea this like I just remembered drinking F eh they all drinking it yeah passing it around. Smoking cigarettes in the girls room weren't smoking but clearly I didn't eat my lunch. Oh Empty D. stomach. Yeah everything just added all up and it equals wrong very wrong so then I forgot that I had ah a geometry test but it was really good in geometry it was like a song wow and I was like sat in front. I was that that nerd wow I'm like. I can't even pick out an octagon. I'm like what is what is a tragedy on.

Everything was just moving and I had to sort of try to hold on. I -member calling one of my classmates in the hallway.

I sat in the back though and I remember just staring at me just like like what I mean Outta here like life right ship. Excuse me like a straight a student WHOA. I know it's a weird. It's always like very ironic with me. I'm your like super smart but but like the world together to play Oh my gosh so so then by the time I was geometry. I don't know somehow I like shuffled fold over that. That was the same building so I think I was able to just like go down the hallway full light into my chair puts the tests town and I remember just sort of looking at got it and then after a few beats as like you know I can't do this. I can't do this so I just stood up. I took my test. I walked up to the teacher and they just pretend return. It was like a Hindu this just what is wrong. I walked into the hallway and I went to the bathroom and I stayed stayed there the last period Oh did you throw up then it that adventure stern God so because we had moved out here.

Let's get more from Wall Street Journal reporter Esther Fung who joins us in the podcast studio. Hoster welcome back. Thanks. So I a little back story. Amazon had been experimenting with the pop up concept since at least twenty fourteen so what did these stores look like for those unfamiliar? What were the purpose of these stores, and how are they carried out right stores roofless stores in the malls or in cold stores or in whole foods stores and the typically occupy only a few hundred square feet, they're small the also have something called an open foam at encourages passes by to come and check out the Amazon devices and the have staff dress casually t shirts to encourage people to to come in and get to new. What's on on displayed? So like a promotional tool for the most part like an in-store kind of store in a way. Do we take this as an unsuccessful project or simply something that ran its course, what do we make of just the ending of it as such it feels like Amazonas still experimenting with what type of stolley out work for it? I don't think any we tailor has gotten that. If formula down to a pet, but it also shows how retail real estate is evolving as consumers tease evolve. And and even though this has been shutdown Amazon is still not giving up on its bricks Malta strategy. It's still looking to roll out bookstores, and it's forced us stores. Only yesterday we were just talking about it or just a few days ago. Right. It's big forays into brick and mortar. But because like you said there's Amazon go there's cashier 'less stores that will misdoing get. More focused now, that's what I heard plan to roll out more of these cashless Amazon go stores, they're already have ten in places like Seattle and San Francisco, and they're also looking to roll out a new line of grocery stores. So they're still experimenting in and this is news for real estate Tucker. Sure, I guess this speaks to Amazon's fast pace innovation. You know? Like, you said it experiments, and it does these tryouts of sorts. I assume there's other big projects that will still be tested, and we can just expect this to be the protocol. That's right at first. It was a little abrupt when when to to have all these pop up stores shutdown all that time, but real estate executives. I spoke to sit the distance hopeful that Amazon would then rolled out in the mall poem and MENA of the types of store foam. It's very good woke be on the lookout Esther Fung. Thank you so much.

Want as the owner to be the owner who can say things afterward, the criticize him, you can't be too surprised that your puppet coaches a little meek and big situations. Well, if I were, he must.
