"Speak more of this it's staggering and it's exciting. I've i've said for the last. I mean if you look at Mike class my brand strategy class. I was take a survey on where people are are being recruited and the number one recruiter Ten years ago as american express rohatyn minute leeman goldman. And then it was. Mckenzie was the biggest recruiter now. By far the biggest recruiter out of my class hands down his amazon and think about this. They're hiring fourteen hundred people a day. I mean that's just day. It's just incredible. Well look. I think it's exciting. I think they will use it as an incredible They'll they'll use it as their their defense shield or this'll be a talking point over and over what is important to do providing jobs. Yeah but it's important to the other side of the coin is and this is part of disruption in part of innovation but will won't be mentioned is i am sure. The destruction of jobs across the rest retail is greater than fourteen hundred jobs. A day right and that is we are we are. We are net losing jobs in the retail sector. Now now if that's a function of competition part of innovation is destroying jobs. Most entrepreneurs do destroyed jobs. That's fine you can't be a luddite but the question is are they destroying jobs. Anticompetitive behaviour destroying good jobs. It good companies that otherwise survive because their pricing products below market or. They're making it difficult for other retailers to get any oxygen on their platform. Or they own the rails. But there's another look. It's exciting good for them. I think amazon is a good employer. I don't so for example. I think uber is a is a medicine. An awful employer and those are employees regardless of what properly to clear but go ahead. Well i think it's going on but fighting on employees about labor unions and things like that. It's just it's just fifteen dollars an hour but that's just come on spying on employees even if even if small amount they've have a history. Frankly people are this sort of opposition to labor organization. They're hard of all. They're very least their hardball tactics when they sit around saying there for the people so this is a this is a company that that that is has been well known for writing. Its employees rough. Let's just say And you know they was interesting is what they are correct about as they there was all these ideas that all these jobs are going to move away as warehouse automation does but it has a lot of physical jobs ultimately it would replace them if it could and a lot of their warehouse as you can see how automation we'll take over but they certainly goes hand in glove with being bigger as as an employee base too because they need all kinds of in all kinds of people as they get bigger and bigger and bigger. I just think it's it gives them enormous political power because of job hiring. And i think that that that politicians are are more predisposed them specially after the pandemic. They're the ones that are hiring It'll be interesting to see how the biden administration handles that. He hasn't picked a labor secretary yet And how they should look at this job. Search you know and everything And how to deal. Who's equipped to deal with amazon. Given the utility of amazon how much people like them How much political power. They have a mean he. I not of the trump can't where you link the washington post to him but he does also own the washington post not a small our. Yeah So i think it sort of plays into thinking of power. He has a lot of it and he's in most. The cards are in his hands. And he's collecting more and more information by creating products people really like so you said a lot there and like most of the things i it's more fun to reduce it down to good and bad and i'm not a fan of amazon on the hall if you talk about You use the term you know riding rough a rough riding on employees. I think i to see him. I found of that but so so for example. The sea of away got an a lot of hot water for being tough on employees. I think a culture of writing rough rough riding or whatever. The term is full body contact employees where it's difficult we move people out. I think that's fine as long as you pay them. Well and as long as there's a. I think disney is a very difficult. It used to be a very difficult place to work. And i think amazon i think if they go to fifteen bucks an hour i think when they're trying to get people bonuses. I think that compensates for some of it now now when you start using course where pilloried mentors or warehouse conditions heated warehouses in the beginning of the pandemic. They were sort of wacked. A lot for people getting sick these people work in their warehouse and work at headquarters. I would argue that. They are from an employee standpoint. A pretty decent employer decent to good. That's the impression i get into. But when you when you own the when you own the washington post and you have cool parties or your house and kalorama and you get purposely gamified. Five municipalities to effect a transfer of wealth for municipal fire school and police districts to shareholders. And say you're going to not allow union representatives into the warehouse and the most united city in the world queens. I think that reflects a lack of character and code not on the people who determine employee practices but the people at the board level who've decided they don't give a flying fuck about the commonwealth and just wanna move their share price up. It's a complex situation. But as relates to employee relations amazon is actually made a decision. It's a smart one to try and don't say starch. Their hat white but removes some of the remove. Some of the darkness of it. I think they're a good employer. And i think i don't. There's any getting around at hiring unionisation. Told me that. no excuse. Well they're avoiding it. Because it's expensive than i agree with you Union membership has been cut in half. There's a direct relationship between the erosion of the middle class and minimum wage not keeping pace with inflation. The attack on unions on that i agree with you. It's bad on the hall. If you take a look at the fact that they preemptively. I think the first large organization or other walmart you. I love is not raise minimum. Wages to fifteen bucks fizz. That was to me. I think they want wanna all the power. This guy wants all the power he just good at it. He's good at it like okay. I agree with. And i think he does the minimum wage thing although you know they try to. They sort of tried to wrap themselves in a white house for that. Even bernie sanders was like. That's too much. Even though he welcomed they used his quotes and everything. But i think that's the kind of stuff they have to do. Raise minimum wage. Show that that that warehouse conditions are good but e and or you know promote employee power but not give them real power. And i think that's the thing i'm most worried about if he's seen all. These sprinter vans try positioned as entrepreneurship and it has an uber. Feel around. and yeah oh you get you get to own your own business. Which means we want you to buy the goddamn van. We want you to buy.
Horses Recognize Pics of Their Keepers
"Recognize our friends faces. And we're not alone. Many social animals can identify individuals of their own species by their facial features. That's important because they need to be able to adjust their behaviour. Depending on who they encounter and research has shown that some species of monkeys birds and domesticated animals can even distinguish among different faces by looking at photographs alone. Scientists have also wondered whether domesticated animals that have coexisted with people for thousands of years can recognize different human faces for example. We've shared more than five thousand years of our history with horses. Plus they can live up to thirty years and may need to retain a great deal of information about this throughout their lifetimes. Foll just lay. Alon said of the French National Research Institute for Agriculture Food and Environment didn't experiment to find out how well horses can recognize individual people in photographs. She and her team. I taught the horses how to choose between two side by side images by touching their noses to a computer screen. The horses were then shown photos of their current keeper alongside faces of Unfamiliar Humans. They had never seen photos of any of the people before the horses correctly identified their current keeper and ignored the Stranger's face about seventy five percent of the time significantly. Better than chance. What's more the horses? Also preferentially picked photos of their previous keeper a person they hadn't seen in six months in fact even though the horses didn't get it right every single time at least as accurate and picking out the previous keeper as they were at their current one. The findings are in the Journal. Scientific reports the results suggest that not only can horses differentiate between familiar and unfamiliar human faces. They intuitively understand. That photographs are two dimensional. Representations of real life without any other cues such as odor sound. And they're even better at this than our oldest animal companion the domestic dog. In addition horses seem to have a robust locked her memory for human faces consistent with their long lifespan and history of domestication in experiments the researchers would like to test whether looking at photos of people that they have had bad experiences with in the past. Mike Class Horses to act anxious. Or even avoidance so maybe think twice before doing anything in a stable that might give a horse along

"Saw this report on FOX six last night about what's going on at the school. The Wisconsin conservatory of lifelong learning seriously. It looked more like the behavior you would expect to see if you went to a juvenile prison. Then you would if you went to an NPS school the parents had had enough. How did it get to this date? And where do you go from here? Jamie and west bend, Jamie or WTMJ good afternoon. Hi. Yeah. I went to Milwaukee public schools growing up and proudly about nineteen seventy nine I was integrated from James Madison to watching in high school, and there is so much chaos and Mike classes at Washington. I thought I stopped by algebra teacher at that time and told her I learn and she said there is nothing. She could do about it. I would have to meet with her after school because I was being bashed. I couldn't do that. Going on for a long time will and and how I mean. Thanks you. How do people tolerate this type of thing? I mean, if it look, okay, I I grew up in the suburbs. But if it was my kids, I wouldn't tolerate that that that's that. You're sending them there to get an education. You're not sending them there to hope that you consider it to be a good day. If you get through the day, and you haven't been attacked. Here's a text Jeff my ex works at Hamilton high school. They were told not to call nine one one young man was beaten, so bad. He was bleeding from the years had a ruptured spleen they called his parents I to come in and not an ambulance. I mean, you wonder how often this stuff is going on? And it's getting swept under the rug. And like I say what caught me about this. This TV report yesterday is this is not something that happens just overnight. This is a systematic failure. It's it's one thing if you'd say, okay. Well, there was this isolated thing to kids had a had a Goto, you know, in the cafeteria. And there was something, you know. Did it been going on for a while? Okay. I understand how that can happen. This is I mean, figuratively speaking, it's the inmates that are in charge. I understand their students not inmates. But you almost wonder. Is that what this is essentially becoming an NPS response is well, you know, our safety is a big concern. You know, we're going to look into it. Well, how did you let bad in the first place? Four one four seven nine nine one six twenty Troy in Walworth tosa, Troy good afternoon. Hey, good afternoon. Thanks for taking my call serve. You know, I think one of the things, you know, I've lived in in Wisconsin for about twenty five years now and removed to while tosa about twenty two years ago, and what I've seen I've seen over the last couple of years I've been a football coach in the private sector in NPS. I think what I see. Now is that pants are starting to realize that they can do. Open enrollment. They can do voucher programs and get their kids out of those schools and get them suburban schools where not saying that the system is that much better. But they're not having the issues in the schools that they're having an inner city, and I think people are making that choice. And I think it's I think it's a good choice. It'd be able to have that if I if this school if my school is not free my kid, right? They're not getting education right there being bullied, or whatever the case may be them somewhere else where that they can get a better education for one. They're around people who are trying to do the same thing. And not have to deal with the knuckleheads horn. Knuckleheads. That go on in the public school system. And it's it's sad. You know, especially being a coach for ten years in the public school system and seen what goes on. You know, a lot of times that happens, and you have to deal with it. But I think they're not dealing with the right? And that's why people are making those decisions to to leave the public schools. Without getting too political about it, which is one of the things that's one of the reasons I find it. So outrageous that you have a new governor. And you have people aligned with him who want to limit the ability of people to get their kids out of. Let's let's put on open enrollment and stuff like that. Well, all right. If you can't fix the public schools, all you're doing is condemning the kid if you limit open enrollment or you limit the ability to go to the charter schools, you are just trapping entire groups of people into the schools that are nothing, but you know, boxing academies, and that's not right. Exactly. Exactly. That's not right. We people should be after should be able to choose. I believe that they should be able to choose where they want their kids to go to school and provide a better education for them. If they're not being provided education where they're exactly and thanks for calling now. Now, again, the the corollary to that is, you know, if m PS if NPS systematically didn't have schools like this. Well, they're they're arguably wouldn't be the need for open enrollment. There wouldn't be the need for these things. But as long as you allow schools like this to flourish, and again, this we're not talking about an isolated fight. Least. According to all, these parents, we are talking about a school that is completely and totally out of control. And my guess is. It's just the tip of the iceberg. But this is getting attention because parents finally said enough is enough, and I can't fault them for that Jimmy in Milwaukee Jimmy TM J good afternoon. Good afternoon. Jeff longtime listener first-time caller. This is what motivated you pick up the phone? We'll welcome to the show. All right. Thank you. First of all, I went to a Catholic school when I was when I was younger, and then I had to go after that to a Milwaukee public school. Now, don't don't we think a little bit that this starts with the parents. And the kids are how they how they act that home to the school. Yep. Yep. Right. And that's why. That's right. I think I think it starts at home with parents who were punched out. I think it goes back in many respects to school administrators and schoolteachers who can't discipline people anymore. And so it it all fosters self. But at the end of the day. I mean, would you send your kids to a school where essentially you know, that there's no learning going on? I mean, absolutely not. I mean, I understand the point there. But one of these teachers going to get a grip on things, you know, when does that happen? Well, and I think that you know, in fairness defensive the teachers the teachers would say that there's only so much. We can do we're prepared to teach. But we essentially end up just our our goal is to get through the day without somebody somebody, you know, getting hurt so badly that they have to go to -mergency. I understand, you know, th. So I mean, I I don't have a magic answer for you know, the problem here. I mean, I think it is. It is. It is it is in some respects a societal problem. I don't have an answer for that. But at the same time, you can't condemn kids to school systems. Like, this one of the interesting things about the video. She's tweet tweet out a link to the story is the cameras roll up. And this is this is yesterday, and they're talking about how you've got a front door that's boarded up. People are banging on the outside of the building. Students are yelling from the windows. This is just it is an alien experience to me. And I'm sorry. I think for most people it would end up being an alien experience as well. I get that. You've got a system that has to figure out how to deal with this. But it doesn't seem like they're doing a very good job of it. And at least from the perspective of the parents who were on TV yesterday involving this one particular school. They're saying enough is enough NPS should've said enough is enough along time ago. That's what I think is a fair. Or criticism? Stick around the.

But even within the delta terminal, you have to know, which restroom to us. Yeah. There you go. We're such creatures of habit. We're like we're gonna use that bathroom. Let's let's go over there. I'm going to the point where even when I pull up to LAX, I have the same valley Parker. And if it's somebody else, I'm like, I need to wait for him. There's too much information. And no, you're gonna ask me, and he knows it all by heart. I'm going to wait till he's ready for you Delhi perk at LAX. Yes. Like you pull up like in Orange County. Same kind of a little bit different in. It's only an extra terminal one boon, but I like to walk. So I'll actually even get to the airport a little bit earlier. I know it's crazy when I fly I is up your time alone. No. But I just feel like I'm going to get on this plane gonna sit and not circulate, and it's just gonna be terrible for me.

You could actually do that. I can I'm a little bit different than you in terms of my schedule. Yeah. Listeners might like to know that like I actually have to be at a desk. You actually have a place to go. No. But I feel like I run a team. I gotta be at the desk at eight thirty to make sure people are they're doing what they're doing or earlier, and then I get home, and I wanted to dinner and homework and people are screaming or baseball practice. So for me, if I could take kids to school and then go work out and then go to the office. Like if there was a ten o'clock start time, though, I would do what you do. I would do like an orange theory or appear burn sixty or something like that. But I don't have the choice. You can't. And you can't do it after work because then you have all the kids. So I do it after work and while they're doing their homework. They're coming to check in with me. So I'll be like Oliver you have to read for thirty minutes. Mike class will be forty five minutes. He'll come in. And they say okay now, go down into math axe. And then the next kid will come in and say, I need help with this. And it'll be like, you know, some constantly pulling my ear buds out. But I get that versus like getting up earlier and being out early. It depends. It depends on the schedule. Sometimes I'll get up in this rain. Hell, no. But I don't mind so crazy that the weather.

Where they could very easily be the team that has ever hit. So that is interesting and tweeted about that in Lindsay Adler was responding to be on Twitter about just her trial of having to cover this enormous team as a person who is not also a giant. It's almost like if you're in a clubhouse trying to cover this team. You have to like hold your recorder over your head to talk to these people because they're all enormous. And when I were just saying that the B W A should get like a step stool installed next to the lockers or something so that the non athletic people can actually talk to the giants in that clubhouse. I understand this coming from a place of physical privilege, but I have never before in my life. At least as an adult have the experience of having to look up to somebody. I don't even know I something I absolutely take for granted when I was in high school. I was the second tallest Mike class dated the second shortest person in Mike Lassen. I just have no conception of what that must have been like from the other side and look. I know have the sands. I'm sorry. I I didn't choose this. I was born this way. And I grew this way. But when you when you were when you were even average height. But if you're if you're shorter than average height, and then you're talking to somebody tall. Do you think about it is it there to feel imposed upon feel intimidated having to look up or is it just some people get used to? I haven't had to do this. I was literally child. Yeah. It's an average height person. And so when I'm just walking around in the world, I don't feel short particularly. But if I'm in like, the Yankees clubhouse, and I'm right next to Aaron judge or Giancarlo Stanton or something. I mean, those are people that even you would have to look up to and Lindsay was saying that her neck is like strained from just constantly like having detected CCC, Beth or whatever. So when you're in a baseball clubhouse, at least for me like that's the only time when I do kind of feel small like, I remember..

"For research on ageing gets ready to celebrate a landmark discovery in the history of science around aging. I thought it would be an good opportunity to check in with you and consider where we are in terms of understanding aging, and where we might be heading in terms of our ability to use therapeutic interventions to extend healthy life and productive years of life for listeners not familiar with the buck, can you begin with a brief overview of what it is. And what it does. Sure the buckets that you opened doors of seventeen years ago as this first in the world free stunned the is devoted to research on the biology of aging ball, so it was interested in chronic disease of aging, which is of course, the significant five year. So we're we're celebrating about as soon as the fiftieth anniversary of what many people believe with the landmark discovery in initiating this whole field, which was discovered the mutation in the gene extended animals lifespan by Tom Johnson university of Colorado and not science really the honesty of the in the environment for the buck to be formed into to to grow to cutting size of twenty two faculty. All people just do this. Really five hundred you Neo biology think back to that nineteen Eighty-eight discovery can you speak a little about the specifics of it and the impacted had on the field that would emerge as Gerald science. Yeah. So so basically to post doctoral, researchers university call Mike class and Tom Johnson. We're interested in finding genes involved in aging, which was kind of a strange activity at that time. Itching research was was really confined to own aging journals, and was was kind of competitive, we competing young animals told on animals and so on, but what what might was to publish paper. Sure that he'd isolated from loan lived tiny Nimitz would worms CLA guns were used widely inviolable research and Mike kick inclusion these worms long lives because the eating is much as normal worms, which is phenomenal cold caloric restriction, which have been known since the nineteen fifties in mice. But but went on to study these worms in the actually it wasn't much team. But it was a fight that the harbor Demisch in single gene, which don't call age one. But when you teach it. Extended the lifespan by by seventy seven percent on he published a couple of papers aging journals in one in nineteen eighty eight. And I think it's fair to say that that many people reading these these papers were quite skeptical of the idea because knowing that time believed it was really such a thing as gene the determines lifespan. It's such a great extent. So really not much. Attention was paid to discovery. I can't believe I wouldn't work with them as you know, some of the problems researchers are right now. But but it really took other other researchers to come into the field, notably Cynthia Kenyon and got Ruskin. You are very well known biologist studying developmental processes. And then they really, you know, say, you know, this is this is right. There are genes and discovered additional genes have these Vinnie larger fix on lifespan. So it was a it was a strange time where skeptics on one hundred and then the believers on the other. And I mean, suddenly everyone realized that this was this was real, and it was kind of like a goldrush for every young scientist who came across the science glow aging genes. So it was one of those pivotal points and coming to to today, you know, if years onwards, this is a very much more mature feels even aging remains a preferring mystery. But no one knew of hundreds of genes that determine lifespan organisms and the real challenge to move the knowledge that we've discovered years in into humans and develop uses to try and develop therapies for chronic. Easterly disease like new terminal disease cancer, cardiovascular disease, and so on and that's real that's that's really happening..

"Who are we talking about that's actually making these specific arguments, you know, so they have a little list about weighing the power of choice in what are the benefits and drawbacks of getting giving students more choice in education, and you can kind of go through that kind of questioning. But it's it's super interesting. And I think there's a there's a move against basically, they already a powerful movement of making sure that we do this within our classrooms and also within our school district's basically of giving students voice in choice in in what they do in how they decide to go at it. What what they decide to create kind of the path that they're going to take. And we always talked about this man you and any compensate. That we have with other instructors were always talking about. How do we make sure that this is something that adds to the engagement of our students, but also ends up adding to the finished product of our student when they leave us they just have all of these skills. You know, the five CS whatever might be that they're they're leaving our schools with ready for the next steps not just with content knowledge, but just in just being human beings in wanting to learn more. So yeah, I thought it was very interesting. We'll make sure we Lincoln, and we'll see what people think about that. I think I mean teachers, I mean, I don't know how many times we need to say this. But teachers are professionals, and we can you know? Most of us can walk in to gum at the same time. And that means giving students choice and voice and also maintaining a proper classroom environment. Yes, it doesn't seem like this is it's where I eat. It's my bread and butter. It's it's literally the center point of my in particular migrate eight work deaths is in students basically coming into my classroom, and deciding what they're doing that day. They know what the project entails, and they know what they gotta do. But it's their time and Mike class is not a gun show. My classes not out of order, my classes and control. Out of control in in no way. It's it's just it seems like, you know, the case against this is also based on an assumption. That's the teachers can't manage their classrooms. And like I said, I I liked the phrase, I I love the phrase walk into gum at the same time. It's like are. We are we really tripping over ourselves to allow students to make some decisions about their education. Well, also expecting them to behave properly at the same time. Is that is that really that hard? They're not even that connected. Those ideas about classroom management and student voice in choice are too. I think actually I think they way they can be connected is that the students have a voice in choice at how the class is actually managed and to make sure that it's always an atmosphere that. Accelerates learning. That's right. You know, that we in kits really can have an honest conversation about that. They'll tell you right for the beginning. You know, would you start developing all kind of like your your rules?.

"Hello and welcome back to another episode of beyond the to do list. I'm your host Eric Fisher. And this is the show where I talked to the people behind the productivity this week. I'm sharing with you conversation that I had with writer, Carol. He's the creator of the bullet journal and also the new author of the brand new book the bullet journal method track the past ordered the present designed the future and in this conversation rider. And I talk about what bullet journaling is why he needed to create for himself. I and why others have latched onto it. And why the bullet journal method is all about intentional living and weeding out distractions. So that you can focus your time and energy in pursuit of what's truly meaningful. Not just in work but in life, so if you are a bullet journal Lur or you've heard of bullet journaling, or if you've never heard of bullet journaling this episode is for you because you're going to find out more about it more about the benefits of it. And find out about it as an option to use for again as the subtitle says. Is tracking the past ordering the present and designing the future. And of course, when we talk about those. We mean tracking your past ordering your present and designing your future, and who doesn't need to be doing those to be more productive to enjoy this conversation with writer, Carol. Well, this week is my privilege to welcome to the show writer, Carol writer, welcome to the show. Thanks for having me. So you're legend looms large, or at least the words bullet journal do for sure I had actually never known who it was that had come up with it until somebody reached out and said you had this book, but I've heard of bullet journaling for years or the words bullet journal for a long time. And I it kind of had that feeling I'm not trying to downplay it or make it sound bad. But it had this feeling of like, ooh. The next productivity fad. You know what I mean? So. And here's the thing. Like, I as as a person who doesn't necessarily have any artistic talent when it comes to drawing and also kind of hate my own penmanship didn't really feel like this is a place where I wanted to go. But for you you needed to do this. So I'd love to hear a little bit of the story of behind. You know, your your reasons for creating this the struggle you kind of had back in the day. And you know, why that led you to this? Sure. So very early on it turned out that I had learning efficiency. Right. I I was like the last Mike class, and we couldn't really figure out what was going on there until Finally I was diagnosed with ADD and is like way back in the eighties. So there were not a lot of resources available to me, and that was challenging people kinda trying to figure out how to treat this and the common signs are tell tale. Examples of people eighty where that they couldn't focus. They were hyperactive list goes on and on and on. So I kind of had a choice to make their I could just constantly direct people towards diagnosis over their participation. If you will or I could actually do something about it. Right. And it's not like all of a sudden, bam Ola journal was born. What did happen though, is it made me focus on trying to figure out ways in which I could overcome the challenges that faced consistently, and that took a very long time in the way that I did that was using after I just like the notebooks that had in class essentially in trying to figure out ways where like organize my thoughts and take notes and like one tiny piece at a time find things that would work now when I say tiny, I mean buried tiny the way I wrote like. How I entered information the templates that I was using. But it always evolved as we've all right? Wasn't like, oh, I came up with this thing. And now it's finished again. It was constantly evolving in refining, these concepts that I had then flash forward towards my professional career where I started becoming a digital product designer. I started integrating a lot of things that I learned about user experience in the way of people understand and can follow visual narratives, if you will right systems architecture and like bad started factoring back into my paper notebook..
"mike class" Discussed on No Limits with Rebecca Jarvis
"Hear a good story. You're in the right place on today's episode. She is one of the most powerful venture capitalist in Silicon Valley name to the Forbes Midas list seven times that is the list that ranks the world's top venture capitalists before founding her own company. She was the first female investor, and then I female partner at excel partners an original investor in a little ten person startup called Facebook today, Teresa go is the founder of aspect ventures, which is a VC that you heard Melinda gates talk about with us here on no limits few weeks ago in my conversation with Teresa today. We talk about for background immigrating to the US how she found her weight of at your capital and eventually made the leap to found her own company, plus for advice, other female founders. Here's Theresa Gow, Theresa Cao. Welcome to no limits. Thanks for having me. Rebecca, I'm thrilled to have you here with us. You have a fascinating back story growing up early years in Indonesia moving here to buffalo when you were three years old. And now, you're one of the most powerful VC's in the country. What a back story to lead into that. It's probably fairly unusual relative to the other VC's that I know that's fair. So tell me a little bit about growing up and what it was like coming here yet. So when we first came here, my dad, and my mom worked in Chinese restaurant. My dad was the dishwasher, my mom was the hostess that was the first jobs jobs. It could get when we first got here. And my dad. Was a dentist. My mom was nurse in Indonesia, but they had obviously get into school here. My dad eventually did go to SUNY buffalo, which is how we ended up in buffalo to get his dental license in the United States. And then my mom, my mom and dad, so eventually we left, and that's why a group outside of buffalo was because of SUNY. Buffalo has a large dental school that has a special program for foreign foreign graduates. So that he could get his degree in eighteen months instead of four years how much of growing up with parents who were industrious made you want to be entrepreneurial. So I didn't even know entrepreneurial meant at that time growing up on probably didn't really know what it meant until. You know, post college, maybe even not until I came to the west coast to Stanford business school, but what the industriousness did show me is, you know, basically hard work, and if you're willing to work hard, and you're not afraid to start over you can achieve you know, whatever you want your dreams that was obviously for my parents like their dream to bring us and emigrate here to the US. So the value of hard work was definitely pressed impressed upon me from an early age. And also the importance of school. So working hard in order to get good grades was not an option. It was given. And you went to some very good schools along the way. Yeah. I was a I was lucky I went to Brown for my undergrad, and I got a degree in engineering, which was one of the two acceptable majors in my parents, mind, pre med or engineering, so engineering and engine. I mean, that's a degree where it over indexes male versus female, what were the courses like and how much of that prepared you to be in venture capital eventually. So again, it very student of -ation Mike class. My my engineering graduating class at Brown was ninety percent male ten percent female, interestingly in venture capital today to pending on which numbers you look at it's either ninety one or ninety three percent male and either nine or seven percent female on the investing. Side. So I guess without knowing it prepared me, very well. This fairly similar. They was is interesting because there were definitely. Early on. It was not easy to to get guys to to have you in their study groups. Oh, really they assumed that you would drag them down because you weren't going to be as. As good of a student as they were. So how did you haven as a result of knowing that or feeling that it wasn't feeling?.

"So we we've actually studied some of these dispensers not the hot dispensers, but people have studied cold dispensers. And certainly there was a problem a number of years ago with ice tea, and if you don't if you don't design the spigot correctly, it's very very hard to clean, and so certain companies that do have very good. With food safety have engineered that problem out, but often the people that design these these pieces of equipment are engineers. They're not microbiologist, and they design them in a way. So that it's not actually cleanable, so about once a week, I will have a black tea from Starbucks era, black ice tea, in your opinion. How how how many germs and my swallowing many bad germs? So so I would say close to euro bed germs. I I have I have I ordered tea products from from Starbucks. I prefer the green tea rather than the black T, but really shitting on. Talking about my opinion. Alex got all. On time. Either. Starbucks dawn, we've been to a Starbucks together. We sat in a Starbucks. He's always on time. Tell me about the table too. Yeah. So I mean, the the good news is Alex. We'll so I the bad news is when when these products get tested often, they contain Mike class of microorganisms that we refer to as fecal coliforms. That sounds. I know that sounds really bad. But I'm too lazy science on you. Okay. Okay. Just because an organism shows up as a microbiologist would call a fecal coliforms. It doesn't mean that it comes from feces. Okay. Okay. It's a class with your kid. Turns out. It's good. Kind of garden variety common feces that you find in the environmental conditions already a double triple turns out because the first turns out is there's poop and the tea, but the second turns out is good to eat those. No, you're not you're not listening. There's not teeth. Really, really? You're going to just go back to working on your plane, like a gentleman, I'm just thinking about this all fucking day and the engine nears. You blame me engineers engineers now, and it's not bad to have those. No. So so the reason why microbiologists don't like the forms is that sometimes these organisms do come from feces and. Quadrupled turn. What these organisms that are that we classify as fecal coliforms are sometimes an indicator for the presence of organisms that actually do only always come from PC. So e coli, for example. So so if we were to test your t and we were to find coli concern to find fecal coliforms, I wouldn't be as concerned depending on which species the fecal coliforms or there when I was in grade school as you had the most vivid memory hasn't grade school we had to write a short story. We had these writing assignments. I'm one day we got assigned to write a story in a format called. Fortunately, unfortunately, is anyone familiar with this. Sounds like a really good idea. Like pros and cons kind of thing. So it's a story. So it's like unfortunate. So it's like fortunately, I grew up in a house. Unfortunately, the house burned down. Fortunately, we got a bigger house. It goes back and forth, and you try and tell like a crazy story. It's like the parable of the Chinese farmer. I think is kind of a more Buddhist version of that story. But this really sounds like a fortunately, unfortunately story where it's like, unfortunately the. T-? There is poop in the t if it comes from the dispenser. But fortunately, just because it's we call it doesn't mean that it is poop. But unfortunately, sometimes it is poop. More right in what you said. Then wrongs. Move onto the..

I have a note here start a war with five reasons. Okay. Because Ethan, Skolnick is on some sort of victory tour about being right that Jimmy Butler was involved that Miami. He were involved in the Jimmy Butler trade talks, but seven, oh, for sorrow from the undefeated in ESPN and Ford. Christian classic two thousand four. Just like my myself was the first to do that. And anyone could have told you that because he'd are always involved and he wants all this credit to do it, and there's all these people in the Miami Heat beat. Sounds like you're jealous of the Stephanos. Well, I know. No, I'm very proud of my high school generated to not one, but two Hispanic American ESPN perso-. Analogies, it's it's a very proud thing for such a small school, local. What does the same class to any thousand four? I'm gonna be thirty one in case. You're wondering he's been one of the two. The other ones gathered as much. Yeah. Kind of weird if there's anybody else that's famous from Mike class. I don't think so. It's just me, Seth. Now, have we gotten a call? Have we? We've gotten one. What does happen though? You were just touting your bona fides. He was x. trying to start a war with Ethan. About. The fibers in sports network. And in Miami, he'd be guys which I listen to the Miami Heat podcast. I tell this podcast, they know what they're talking about when it comes the Xs and os and the construction of this theme, but ultimately often on these same people that are part of the five reason. Sports networks are tweeting things like I'm hearing, oh, there's talk. There's chatter the Miami here involved in this and that. And it's hard for me to take it seriously because it's often not coming true and they don't have the verified check. So I am not here for school victory now. Okay. So there's talk that is not a report Skolnick and you know it well, no Skolnick is I trust. And if you won't respect Mike, Ryan's bona fides, I demand that you respect mine classify for and it's not just me that's classic for it's definitely for sorrow who was the first to have this report. I might add, we go out to the phones and Christian is there for us. Hey, guys, not question just a statement. Mattia Noche is the best kind of bread. Cuban bread is goes on a mini note. You.

"But the lifestyle is not in the career path I had to come to terms with that. It's not for me, but let me tell you. I hadn't come to terms with them when I was working. You know, even after I lost my job, I didn't come to terms. I said, all stands for awhile in go back to grad school. You know another bargaining chip yet through in the ring, so, but I just found. Myself, never really going back to the honest. And it was sort of something that was in the back of my head like, oh, yeah, I'll get there is procrastination. When you procrastinate with your life, you know, things conspire to kind of like slap in the face and saying, listen, wake up. This is not happening high think is gonna happen. You can either get with the program or just keep, you know, sort of wasting time. Yeah, speaking things not going with the program. Read that you went through a layoff. Is that when you took that break for grad school, you know when you're bargaining yourself, is that what you're talking about? Well, how it happened was you know, with the merger in everything that was going on, and then my department yet, then I got laid off. I still that was sort of my break from corporate world. That was the hard break-up that I had in that was to me, I thought, oh, this means I'm going back to the educational world, but I just can't let this dancing go. How does dance for a little while before I go back to educate on world, you know, and literally there was no moment where I said, okay, I'm not going back. It wasn't until I looked up years later. Like many years later had a had a full career in dance choreography. I had long since not. Been pursuing education only then was I like, okay, okay, maybe I'm not going back. So you face yourself less like you were just kind of not being honest with yourself until finally, you're like, you know what? Give it outgrew but mind you. I was preaching the opposite, you know? So even while I was telling myself that I would go back, I was telling the opposite. I was living quote, unquote, what everyone wanted to do which was to all their passions. Unlike everyone should do. You should follow your passions. Meanwhile, I still, you know, still new in it. I I hadn't. I wasn't wearing now. It hadn't been people really understand stack then mind you this before. So you think you can dance American dance before new to for all that social media. So when you said you were dance or you know, people thinking like clear heels on. Know owning, you know, in mind you, I'm going to like after work mixers, my friends doctors, lawyers, great, amazing people, but are we still doing that dancing thing in like your insult, you not invite them to my class knows teaching by then one time my friend came to visit me was blown away like, oh my God, you are just like moving in doing this and that not Mike class. You know, let's dancing in the professional side of it. There's a whole world that people weren't privy to because you know, there were no cameras hidden in. So it was really based off of people's stereotypes of what career path -ment in for me. I didn't have time to live by those area types or address them. I just had to kind of keep going right. That was my mantra, wasn't just stop in assess all the time. I didn't have time every day..
