"So this notion of protecting that information is where I consider security. And so that's one of the advantages of zero knowledge proofs. Most people are familiar with that, I think, because there's projects like zcash out there that kind of really make that their focus. The other aspect of it, which people may be less familiar with, although I think are increasingly familiar with, are is the scalability aspect. And this comes from the S and ZK snark and the S stands for succinct. And it's a succinct proof when the idea of a succinct proof is that it's the proof itself is much, much smaller than the statement potentially being proven. And the advantage of that is if the statement being proven potentially is the validity of a bunch of transactions or a bunch of state transitions, then you can very nicely compact basically all that activity into a single small proof. And that's very good for blockchain scalability. And this takes a couple of forms, the more common form is roll ups. So we see this technique applied in DK roll ups on Ethereum. The other way it's applied is in succinct blockchains or super light clients. Minna is the assistant blockchain. Of course, an example of a super light client is celo, has the plume pluma wallet. So anyway, that's zero knowledge cryptography and zero knowledge proofs. An application of zero knowledge cryptography. It's a attempts to be a platform to build applications that are powered by zero knowledge cryptography. The simplest way to think about it is basically as a combination of what zcash brings, which is basically the security and privacy of transactions and all the benefits of zero knowledge proofs, but limited to simple payments. Combining that with the power of Ethereum, which is the programmability of smart contracts. So Elio uses a construct called sexy ZE XE, which is short for zero knowledge execution, which is some research that came out a number of years ago, which I actually was interested in long before I learned about Elio. And that's the model that we apply on our own platform. So it's a new layer one. We're building our own chain. And yeah, so we have our own chain with our own consensus, and then the execution via or the execution model effectively is sexy. And then on top of that, we have a smart contract language called Leo. And the reason we have our own language and we don't use some of the other a lot of other layer ones use wasm or and of course theorem is what we had to purpose build our own language because the target when you're writing a program is in a high level syntax, typically on a computer they compile down to machine code and get run.

Minna has spent the last year and a half trying to get the U.S. to adopt widespread rapid antigen testing. As a way to control COVID. But those tests have to be authorized by the Food and Drug Administration. Currently, only a handful of home antigen tests have emergency use authorization. The entire bottleneck for the United States is the authorization of the tests. We have very few tests available to us in the United States. I forgot to Germany. They have almost 70 different manufacturers producing tests. That's created market competition. It's driven costs to the actual test down. In the UK, they have partnered with companies that can scale to massive numbers in the U.S., we essentially have taken a very small handful of companies, none of which are scaling particularly large numbers. And that was it. So the real problem in the United States is that we have failed to authorize enough of these tests. Not because the tests don't work, but it's simply because of how we define these tests. The FDA defines the tests as medical devices. They want rapid antigen tests to show sensitivity comparable to PCR tests. Only a handful of companies met that requirement and could get emergency use authorization that EUA for their tests. Other companies have the technology, but not the authorization. Essentially the FDA said, okay, well, now we have some companies. We're going to raise the bar even more. So it's just become harder. And I talk a lot to all these companies. And all of them say, we just don't understand Michael, can you help us? It just feels like the FDA is changing the goalposts on us at every time somebody said to me yesterday it feels like The Hunger Games, where the moment you're about to succeed, the moment you're about to get your EUA, a new gauntlet is thrown into the picture. And that's kind of what's happened for almost a year now for these companies. There's a push and you're one of the people who has talked about this to reclassify these tests as a public health tool and not a medical device. What would that take? So I started saying that because I've tried for a year to over a year to get these to get the FDA to evaluate these differently than a medical device. It's been essentially an immutable wall. And so what that would take is for I think an executive action from the president and what the executive action would state is that the tools used for public health testing during this public health emergency are designated as public health tools. And if that happens, then the FDA does not evaluate public health tools. So if the president can come out and say this, and I think it's an extraordinarily reasonable thing to say, it's how the UK does it. It's how many countries do it. Then the onus can move over to the CDC to evaluate these tests. So the number one thing would be as part of this process, the CDC could say, okay, as a public health agency, we are going to recognize our peer, trusted public health agencies, like the UK and Germany. And any tests that they have had good experience with with millions and millions of the tests that they've done, we will automatically give a certification for our use in the United States. So overnight, there are companies, some of the largest companies in the world have told me directly that if that happened, they could start tripling the United States access to rapid tests overnight. The Biden administration recently ruled out a new COVID plan, which emphasizes more than just vaccination. It includes ramping up production of antigen tests and buying 280 million of them for community testing centers, nursing homes and jails. Plus, they push big retailers like Walmart and Kroger to offer antigen tests at cost. I want to be very supportive of the plan because I think the most important piece of the plan as far as testing goes is that we now have the president of the United States re upping his initial emphasis on recognizing the power of these tools. The actual number of tests that are going to be purchased is not going to make much of a difference. 280 million sounds like a lot of tests. But when you have 330 million people in a country, that's less than one test per person. And the benefit of testing, whether it's PCR or rapid testing is frequency of the test. If you're not doing a test frequently, you have no idea if you're asymptomatically spreading. So we're about to see a testing crisis because of the COVID-19 action plan. The test or vaccinate vaccinate or test part of.

"Fed policymakers had already announced plans to gradually phase out the bond buying program they launched early in the pandemic to support the economy Now it looks like that phase out is going to happen faster and that would give the fed more flexibility to raise interest rates to keep inflation from spiraling out of control That's NPR Scott horsley Scott thank you You're welcome In Europe take home COVID tests are free or virtually free and widely available So they get used every day before going to work say or a party Here in the U.S. similar over the counter tests cost 7 to $15 apiece and supply is limited That frustrates public health experts who argue that fast frequent testing is critical especially as case of surge again And peers you can Noguchi explains how the U.S. ended up on a different track Kavita Patel treats mostly poor patients at a health center in D.C. It's hard enough she says convincing them to test for COVID I mean literally most of my patients don't want to test because they don't want to know the answer People don't want to miss work So you have to kind of go through this is why you have to test because you could actually die Patel says it would be safer and easier if patients could test at home to quickly assess whether their infectious But over the counter tests are too expensive and she says often hard to find Shouldn't this be so damn easy that there's very little friction to getting a test Yes the answer should be yes The Biden administration says health insurance will reimburse those with private coverage It also plans to distribute 50 million free tests through libraries or federally funded clinics like patels But that's too little too late says Patel who's also a fellow at the brookings institution I am sitting here December of 2021 We're going to get hit with the surge It is inevitable And why am I sitting here like trying to figure out what I'm getting to The answer goes back to the U.S.'s approach at the start of the pandemic The Trump and Biden administrations didn't develop and pay for universal at home testing the way it did with vaccines That was a mistake says Michael minna a well-known testing expert and former Harvard professor He now worked for emit an at home diagnostics firm Every step we've taken in the pandemic has assumed that this is a medical problem It's more than that It's also a public health issue So Mina argues acquiring and paying for tests should fall to the U.S. government not individuals The state of New Hampshire tried that last month it partnered with the federal government to deliver 800,000 free tests to residents requesting them Supplies ran out within one day Minna argues if the federal government did that across the country it could negotiate discounts on price and distribute them broadly as in Europe Why not just make it simple and streamline So I don't have a good answer why they're choosing not to Another issue the U.S. took longer to authorize the tests than elsewhere Jack Feng is chief operating officer at I health labs who's at home tests were recently authorized by the Food and Drug Administration The price here is a little bit higher because you need to spend more You need to do more on study and even do more clinical trial Fluctuating demand is also a challenge for test makers A year ago Abbott one of the country's earliest makers of over the counter tests rushed to set up two U.S. factories in a fraction of the time it would normally take But by early this summer demand plummeted an avid shut down its Illinois factory only to reopen it again in the fall as a new COVID surge fueled demand Meanwhile the lack of steady supply makes it hard to include testing in public policy Elizabeth Stewart is a public health professor at Johns Hopkins With more tests she says school children exposed to COVID could test daily instead of having to quarantine And I've been pushing public schools on this And I will say it's been hard to push on it because of the supply problems They sort of say we just can't get enough tests to implement that Stewart says the highly anticipated antiviral drugs from Pfizer and Merck will make rapid testing even more important Knowing that you're infected with COVID quickly can help make sure you get the right treatment Some of the new therapies are really most effective if taken early in the course of the disease experts say that may prove the most promising use for at home.

"Care because it was one of the headlines from the budget yesterday the national childcare scheme has been massively extended take in children up to the age of fifteen that provides state funding for child care for children up to the age of fifteen. I'm sure it's more nuanced than that. But that's the basic age three or four remember creek and then there's a new stream up to four thousand seven hundred early years and trump care providers would benefit from a new funding scheme from september. Twenty two the total package on childcare is around two hundred million euro. Minna murphy owns preschool. It's kill dinan preschool minna. Good morning you're happy with this. I think good morning and thanks for having me on. I am happy and i'm hopeful because The fact that we were first time announced in the budget as a workforce that sixty nine million will be ring-fenced for the pay conditions and. That's a huge promises that we have been fighting for too many years also wiley. I'm happy and hope. I am also kinda sat and disappointed that still in twenty twenty one such an important sector that is so important for the society that we still need to us earlier. Teachers have to fight for our workforce rights and for the recognition. And it shouldn't be like that. One of the complaints we have been hearing from the sector is that it's so hard to get and keep good staff in fact so hard to get in keep any staff. Will this help while. I'm hoping so and what we have been doing here. That we are not fighting. Chose for us at the moment. But we are fighting for the whole sector and also for the future of sector like dispatcher. Breakthrough didn't happen just like that was given to us to new years campaign was successful because of six thousand six to union members were rising issues and the union activists were lobbying to politicians and writing articles and like myself now choking on the radio. It was a collaboration with the union don't non-governmental organizations and i want to say a big tanks also to all the parents who have been ruled in us in for example social media's so it is a cooperation and we have got here but this is only a first step for sure like we have finally being acknowledge we will never let the government for us anymore in your own individual case and your own individual business. What do you think this will enable you to do. Or what do you hope it label you to do. I'm hoping finally be able to pay better salaries for my staff down. Wonderful absolutely wonderful and the big problem here is that i will get a surgeon amount of cake which i need to divide with my staff for the running costs for for insurance and whole lot and all after that i will see what kind of peace is left for me to a manager for example so that cake has never been picking off am hoping that this budget and future botch it. I will also be able to offer pay rice for my staff. That hasn't happened because the cake is always the same size. You know what i mean. So it's it's a positive day in in your in your view. It is positive day and it is a shining light for the future. and the workforce Like for the sector that there might be people thinking that this might be my career because they left to teach young children but unfortunately so many like for example now the government has announced thousand sna positions and. I am absolutely sure that many of our wonderful earliest teaches won't be going for those positions because of the better pay and better working conditions. So it's it's a constant patch to keep the staff here and aldo money isn't always the most motivating we also need to be able to pay bills. We also need to be able to get the mortgages and now the more money might be the greatest motivation for really good people min- but you still need to be able to pay them a decent decent wage. Let's bring in even mitchell from the sip to childcare. Early years section either. Good morning to you combining pta. Thanks for having me this morning. Listening to two minute there as a provider. She's happy absolutely. I suppose you know this is a very unfamiliar position For as well in terms of of today's are of yesterday's announcement not so used to hearing. I suppose go news to. I'm in in relation to pay and conditions. And i suppose you know just hearing so many politicians. I'm talking about how You know addressing that the issue of poverty pay in the sector which radio primary issue In in india thirty or sector You know it was. It was a real turning point for for for so many people who work for the townsend's of women working in the sector So yeah we are i suppose. Some watch 'em happy with the announcement yesterday. Yep for sure that the extension of the scheme up to for children up to the age of fifteen. That's that's obviously to be welcomed. Yeah absolutely i know. I'm not here either to defend and you know. I do think a lot more needs to be done in terms of affordability for families. You know the high cost of childcare is just a barrier for so many families in terms of advertising education And unemployment though i'm not here to defend and you know the government's decision about regards both am in terms of the funding that they have implemented You know to improve the quality. The provision of high quality carrying education and You know addressing and pay in dot regard You know we really do welcome and we do think that obviously more needs to be done in terms of the affordable sheets for families. And you know i i again i just. I'm not here to defend. That's just just just to acknowledge You know that that that they. I suppose like what we know when something is positive. It's it's it's right to acknowledge centers on that minner.

This is obviously a game. Show designed around me right. I loved friday the thirteenth and it was funny over the weekend when this pop and i tweeted about it i think so. Many people are either new kind of funny fans or no me from something else. Maybe then let's plays or whatever and we're like i got excited for ghostbusters game and i look at this developer and like friday thirteenth and predator and mike yeo shut the fuck up. Those games are so much fun now. They outta ten. God no but like friday thirteenth. I played nonstop. And i had so much fucking fun with and what. I've always gone back to when i talk about friday thirteenth. Because i knew that franchise so well it predator less. Oh but i enjoyed it sought but didn't understand it. The same way was friday thirteenth. The fan service. That's what you'll find fucking nailed about friday thirteenth. Where it was they went and got. Tommy jarvis voice actor to come back and actor to come back and be that guy. They went and got like the cabins when me jen. Were watching it. That halloween where we watched every five thirteen while playing that game. It was crazy for me to be like in five thirteen. Th four or five. Or whatever it was i don't remember and i'm like oh my god. This is the cabinet. I play in the game. And like i know this cabinet in the movie from the game so well but it turned out today. Took the movie cabinet but it there to think about what firehouse will look like for that way to think. About what new york in general. What the echo. One would look like you start getting into really cool interesting concepts and let alone what the pack would feel like what the protons would look like you know. I'm assuming it's going to be a like a symmetrical multiplayer. Think everything they've learned from predator so it is a first person shooter predator. May not actually. I've always i like third. I i like third person a lot. And i feel like wooden your pack and your suit and all the customization options. Maybe you do that in third person so it looks a bit cool as you can see a bit more. But if i'm playing my friends. Obviously you guys see me. And i'd see you. We'd have it that way. It gets super interesting as to what this game probably will be what could be the. Does yvonne also working on our didn't do anything for you and what you think this game might be because i know like historically associate them with that forty one asymmetrical multiplayer vote for what arcada getting was or is because it's still early access right. It is this co-op Rogue light shooter where it is going through a bunch of different levels. I know that probably doesn't make as much sense at all for ghostbusters. But does i like widen your perception of. Oh maybe this could be for like four players versus environment or do you feel like for while phonic is and for what ghostbusters is especially following in the lineage of predator and try to thirteenth like. It's it's gotta be asymmetrical most player or do you think they might switch things up and like try and i'm gonna i'm gonna pay back that question with another question. Is that what you want. would you want it to be for a symmetric multiplayer game from ill phonic so to that question. I'll start with the former than the latter. Never say never you know. I mean you're talking about arcade again and right in what they've done there and early access on playstation right now never say never i would think though that if your breakout.

Stay back there portrays on me just over and over and over again and releasing every time they get there and what would invariably happen is after while the course just go lick chula choo choo and they would like you. Just release all of the tension. It was incredible The change that you would see that horse after getting through that period and now okay. Now that we're here were in this safe place. Where you've you've led off a lot of this tension. Now we can start doing other things but that start even if it's a well trained horse so if i five is in this position i'm with my mustang remington at a show something happens. He's dancing around me. That's the process i would use. I would say hey. Don't don't do that on top of me and put your eyes on me.

Response for continued number variants in some of the variants might be deadlier for more transmissible. Well we we. Can the antigen tests will pick up the variance. It's not a question. The pc are may be influenced by changes but you can quickly adapt the primers that you use. I mean to me all these discussions about vaccines and so on. Vaccines got very lucky that they took so little time right and and you have to be aware no matter what that there's hasn't sued vaccines in this country before if that's a reality can just be like magically saying that you're going to overcome that and i don't think there's any hesitancy and cheetahs at home i agree. I think if someone so the question is if someone tested positive they stay home. That's the quite. what if. What if their job depends on them. Going in i.

Yeah and get her and keep him home when they're infected it cuts. It's and we don't have it.

"I emailed michael minna. The harvard school of public health. Who was one of the big critics of the way we tested for code and this is what he wrote back about. The way testing works. It has to do with what epidemiologists called are not which is the average number of people infected by an infected person if an epidemic has are not above one it grows exponentially if are not falls below one. An epidemic dies out. Here's what minna road this whole pandemic and all of the massive up breaks we've seen have been with an are not of about one point three that means that every ten people infected went on to infect on average thirteen people. Well in that case if you have a hundred people infected on day one then thirty days later you have about six hundred new infections exponential growth and quote all we had to do to stop. The pandemic was to test just enough people and prevent just enough new infections so that those ten newly infected people only infected on average nine other the people. We just had to move the needle a little bit and couldn't do it. Option one one of the most criminally stupid acts of public health incompetence in american history. Now imagine another option just moved to a hypothetical so i'm a highschool. I wanna rio right. We're in the middle of the raging. Pandemic i come to you. And i say i i i wanna use your service. Are we talking. How would you tell me how you would fix a. I'm talking to jerry. Johnson who runs bio detection at three sixty canine targeted front door. I fifty kids come in. They stand on their spot searches them they going to class. The next fifty comes in. We could that relatively quickly. You know maybe have some coming in the gymnasium. Some coming in the cafeteria. It's all about having the real estate to get the children lined up so and you could do that with one dollar two dollars you would. You would want to dogs particularly if it's a public health. Issue and school children going with the dogs. Very very thorough. So if the dogs condition to work forty five minutes we want to stop at thirty just to make sure that the dog is not fatiguing at all test cost somewhere in the range of one hundred fifty dollars and you wait forever for the result. The cost of a dog test. Once you've factored in the dog the training paying the handler is something like two dollars and fifty cents a test and the dog gives you the answer immediately. So the dog. Is you got these kids. Dog sniff sniff sniffs finds a dog has a positive. What is the dog doing it up to sits just the dog goes online. What we like to do is we line people up. We have them. We have the dog. Go down as they're facing forward. The dog goes down the left hand side of the line. And it'll just does a quick. You'll see it's it's a minimally invasive search the doug put it snows on the back of the person they target the hand. If you've told shoes might target your feet that makes quick contact with the skin but then it keeps going the doug won't break stride if it gets an odor and there's the presence of virus stop. It will sniff mortal investigate and then we'll go into the the response so that person who's been identified. The dog is positive. Is pulled up secondary schooling taking. Go the nurse office and get a rapid test. The next time a pandemic hits we could have dogs at the front door of every school in america. We have dogs at the front door of restaurants and dogs in bars and dogs and train stations and dogs at the airport. We could have dogs walking down the street checking out everyone on the sidewalk. Your block could band together and have a dog come every night at dinnertime to sniff everyone. You could hire a dog along with caterers at your daughter's wedding or your son's bar mitzvah or every sunday morning a church to make sure you aren't holding a super spider event. Dogs give us the power to move the needle from an arnott of one to an arnott of something less than one that is option to the canaan option. But we'll go down that path. Forgive me if i'm skeptical. Because to take option to we will need tens of thousands of dogs and we don't have tens of thousands of dogs trained and ready a. Why don't we have a whole national. Canine guard train ready matched up with their handlers for any conceivable future. Pandemic a strategic puppy reserve to call on whenever emergency happens because at the end of the day. We don't really believe in docs. We like them as friends sure but not.

I don't care if you go. I know places that the great by main bullshit for half hour to leave that does speak to the the dedication of the fans despite against all odds they wanna come and have a good time they suck anyway. I mean this is what i have to people like this like. It's like just four conscious bitching about nothing on some show in. You know david loves them so it doesn't matter it's but it's like i get it. I couldn't even get what the fuck he's upset about. I'm sorry if he's going through something i me. I'm barely sorry though. But i mean it's like whoa.

Well that's what i remember With the kelleher. When he was doing the sticker ship he kept saying. Why isn't the show doing this. And also saying. I'm losing money on so it's like well that's why the show is russia's to his defense but the truth is i would make profits if i was selling stickers right but if he was doesn't make any sense and told them not to do it like i didn't tell it i only into that but like rob can robin tim i liked. Those guys are both good guys. I mean they're good minna fans and they're hunting but i mean it's like you know like you said they're burdened by this cross. I'm trying to say headed fun.

"A couple of years ago. I went down to columbia with ethan coen and mary molina and while i had them both i figured i talked to them about guns in cinema. Mary is originally from columbia and they both had some interesting things to say. All right. i'm here in The sierra nevada. With ethan. Cohen and mary molina. Hey hello to start out. Why don't don't you tell me a little bit about yourselves. I make movies with my brother and we've done the number of movies that are. I don't know what you would call them. Thrillers that Actually have gun violence in them. That's good. I'm primarily primarily writer. I raped by myself. No brother involved. I like to focus on comedy. But i guess like a weird funky kind of comedy. That may be funny to me but not necessarily other people and sometimes i use violence in order to get people to laugh. I'm admitting to this. Please forgive me well. That's a good lead in my first question which is is gun. Violence ever justified in film. Yeah of course. I mean it sort of depends on the story. If we're you know who that character is and where they are. But yeah i mean violences. We are violent people. We live in a violent society so yeah of course it's Pardue storytelling of course eighth. Yeah especially practice storytelling. because stories are often You know the storyteller reaches for high stakes you know. Life or death stakes. it's You know that's That's been the case since long before there were guns and continues to be the case now. Okay why guns can't the stakes be created with other devices. What would it be better if it were knives. Instead of guns. I think would just be weird if people always bayoneted each other in movies instead of shooting each other just doesn't reflect the reality of how where where we live who we are Yeah but i do think that there is an over reliance on guns you know we can get similar not the same necessarily but we can get similar stakes. If we're using things like let's say for example your character is You know she's been recently pissed off by her boyfriend than all of a sudden. She pulls a knife out of her kitchen drawer. That feels can textually right to me. or let's say for example. Somebody has come into your apartment in. You want to fend them off. So you know can we. Would we immediately reach for a gun or could we reach four bat or something like that. So i mean i think i think guns are are sort of an easy out. Sometimes in storytelling I think we can get more creative in terms of like how he kill people in film but but but yeah but then other obviously like if you're looking at a cops or it just you know context is so much a part of this it's also who your audience is and Who your characters are where where you wanna put them what you want their kind of arc to be. I mean yeah ethan's right. I think one of the things that we pay attention to absolutely stakes. I mean that's what keeps us watching but but we can develop stakes in lots of different ways. It doesn't have to be just you know. Put a gun in the scene in You know there it is. Can i just endorse. Mary's thought that we should be more creative than how we kill people in movies. I mean that's what i've been trying to do all my career and there's something about gun violence than is feels a little lazy. It feels like the quick easy answer to resolving a conflict. that doesn't give it any depth. You know it's just kinda like all right. There's a bad guy. We're going to shoot them and then that'll be the bad guy and maybe there's another way to tell the story that doesn't involve just easily often people because that's the way to the next scene. Yeah i kinda know what you mean. But i'm not sure it has to do with guns. It's like the laziness of dispensing with the character in a pat way. With whatever means getting rid of minna pat way i mean i think the problem is more but also i don't know there's anything you can do about it. Sometimes you watch a movie new. Think while the gun is nets being treated in a kinda fetishistic way. And that's like creepy like it would be in life. Somebody who has a gun fetish you know is really into the thing itself Yeah that's kinda creepy. You do see that occasionally. But i don't really know what you can do about it. The person who made the movie doesn't think he's creepy. So i'm not sure what you can do. All right well often films use gratuitous gun violence to create an adrenaline rush. There must be a better way to pull people in. I mean i think that right now withdraws people to a massive action movies. Where actually you know half the time they're not using guns they're using lasers or atomic something or other like you know smeg ma. I don't know like what are those things called the or like you know globs of something that go flying and trap people against walls or something. I don't know so you know we're guns. These days are in the types of movies that are kind of like blockbuster films or sort of a moot point because we're moving into this age of lake future ism but you know the adrenaline rush. Going back to two will. Retire about earlier comes from you. Know is something at eastern talked about earlier is you know is the guy gonna make it like is we're invested in this person or you want to know whether or not they're going to egg at thing that they want and be if they're going to survive right because we've already invested x. number of minutes with this person and so we want them to want to find out what's going to happen to them could we. Could we create an adrenaline rush without involving guns. Probably we want some threat of violence. Generally that helps or the threat of loss that yeah well. Yeah well no. I agree with all that. I have a general thing. Dad i just think that gun. Violence is such enormous social problem. That fixating and one of the small consequences of that problem. Which is you know. Gun violence in movies just seems strangely misguided. It'll always be there as long as it's this huge social problem So i'm not i'm just. I'm confused about whether utility is addressing gun violence in movies. You are listening to radio gang. The gays against gun show here on listener sponsored commercial-free radio. Wbai we are here.

I'm looking at the over. I know that the last game went under. But you gotta remember. There was a forty three point. First quarter and yet the game still was gonna say close to going over. He may be heading overtime. Draw but the point is from the second quarter onward. Everything seemed to play itself out with proper pace. The first quarter both teams couldn't have anything with a lot of a boat so i assume that it'll go back to relative normalcy or you won't see a forty something point quarterback employees skew the pace off. I like the over. I think we can agree. That with phoenix is awful transition. Defense milwaukee has gone faster for the last couple of games. Yeah and i don't know a phoenix is gonna start giving cameron payne more minutes to try to limit the chris paul hand issues and maybe reactivating it but we can agree that the sons when chris paul not in the game assuming he might get some minna restrictions or something like that they play faster with pain him ivan that could lead to even a more uptempo style..

"On our list anyways to be notified of everything. But that's really the timing of getting people prepared for the holidays when their brains. We're seeing a lot of people away from their screens during the summer months right now because a lot of worlds have opened up. So we've really shifted it to the fall so i think he's also have mastermind. We do not as yeah. Thanks for asking. So that's for a really. Ideally it's for businesses that have momentum by them so it's not for the businesses kind of still struggling. That's really a multi. She machine it's for it's for the business owner that's trying actually keep up with their business. They realize they've made something great people are buying and they don't know what to do next. Do i hire. How do i keep up with the momentum. I'm so i would say hundred thousand dollars of minimum in revenue. And then we have a fifteen million dollar brand in there so we work with brands. That are multi-million to you. Know multidex Low six our goal. Is she helped them at an extra hundred thousand dollars in revenue. Whether it's next month the next quarter and the next year we've done this you know. We worked with one brand jewelry brand where in our masterminds she had all the jewelry rate should earrings necklaces and bracelets and all the things but she had built this brand off of bracelets their anniversary bengals and we had when we first started working with her she was like seven hundred fifty thousand in revenue. She's doing great as a small business. Selling solid gold but with a few tweaks. We had our in into her bestseller. Which were her bengals. Forget the earrings. Forget the necklaces. Let's get really clear in our messaging. Get really good at production and product development on products that people want to buy from you within six months. She hit a million dollars. She was a two million dollar business by the end of that year. And now she's two years later is going to be like five and a half million this year from leaning in to a single product category and creating variations and being known on referral for that so we have so many stories whether they hit their first six figures where they they hit multimillions. But that's something where it's our highest level working with us so we go ahead. It is working with us. But i do want to say that. The secret sauce is the power of the people. The mastermind is really about what they bring to each other so while they do have myself and jacqueline for the strategy for the pivoting for the never having to make a decision alone essentially they have each other to keep them selves going and that is crucial for a business owner that is really wanting to make their business be vehicle to their dream life and so it becomes this okay. We know what you want. We know your idea of success. We know it's a line. let's get you there. jacqueline are like. Let's do this. And then the rest of the people in the mastermind bring their own experiences. They bring their own resources. They bring their own. You know what we call unfair advantages right and you get to cover more ground and you really have each other to lean on. We have weekly wins. We have you know we understand each other struggles so it really is about developing your business and developing your skill sets and doing it with each other. I appreciate that. I think that's the greatest thing about finding the right right masterminds and that is i also think it's got seems like forever with different inner circles out offer a year and a half year. The one thing. I continue to see the necessity of one product and one business. It is so funny. Because i remember i mean these guys were all guys and the girls were all young typically the three to ten million range they would all have three to five different businesses. But it just kept getting stuck in that same thing as listen you gotta get rid of it the until one business or one product that scare basically all. I don't know if i can get the numbers by go down to one product. So i appreciated here and you say that where it's like. Listen if you focus on and the right product you actually get scale at a faster pace and you can get to the numbers that you really want. And i think the only i've ever seen anyone really hit the types of numbers they want to head. Were you talking fifteen million or anything else. You start with what product. Obviously there's other things that come off of that starting with one. it's fantastic. Congratulations on the masterminding. All the proxy. Well it's awesome thank you. I love that story too. I think it does require somebody else lifting that live for you though right so You know that story of. It's really scary to come down to one product but usually what happens is there's a bounce off of you know mindset that happens and self doubt and fear and it requires somebody else to show you. Oh you can do it this you know breaking your glass ceiling or or whatever it is on what you you can get to a certain point. But that's you're limited to what you only know it takes. Sometimes somebody else saying this is what i know. This is what i think of your business. And i think that you can do it and it helps so much. I love you kind of curious. If you guys get close to wrapping things up and get ready for the summer off coming out what you guys have done. Products you've done physicals..

"How do you help them. Build a value ladder. How do you help them. Scale their business will usually has to do with finding their bestseller right so oftentimes when we're starting with We test and try a lot of things until we figure out what their bestseller is. You know my case. It was my baby bottle. Labels sometimes a crop flip across platform. It does change. I think it's a little bit different than how other people my approach their businesses. Because when you work with like for example like amazon sellers a lot of times they teach find the gap create the product right but the customers that are the clients that we find that find us they already have a product and so oftentimes. It's okay what can i do. I have the product. How can i validate it. And how can i grow upon that and a lot of times. They're throwing spaghetti at the wall with a whole bunch of different products. They think that is the way to scale when actually the way to scale is to go deep and not wide. You're finding the bestseller and you're making variations or you're finding the best you're going onto multiple platforms and it really is holistically bringing clarity to your brand. You get really really good at selling the bestseller and you sell it everywhere with a very clear message to your ideal customers and so. It's about boiling down that message. Connecting the dots for them during cova. We saw a lot of things happen but our community actually really really thrived. Even if they were selling jewelry most times they were like. Oh why do they need. Canal's why do they need jewelry. Well it all has to do with messaging at that point right so you're scaling to get to more customers through the messaging of it you know upper dressing for zoom meetings or all these different things that you can do and so i think that they small business owners get stuck in that they get stuck in the thinking that more product means more sales when actually it really is about figuring out what you do really really well and let's see how we can scale that you take that bestseller to wholesale for example or you take it to amazon or you take it to at sea. Even you know all these different places and you get really good at messaging. You get really good with attracting the right customers and then it becomes easier. Yeah and we talk about leading with your bestseller because if you're a candle company right a lot of candle companies like i'm going to do room spray in a diffuser and they're going to do all the things versus. I'm going to come out with you. Know eight ounce candles in eight different sense. Oh my rain sense. Smells really good. People keep buying that that would be the thing that maybe you would create a diffuser of room spray. A smaller version of bigger version. And we also teach from like we have a challenge called the vessel secrets challenge and what we teach is then bundling with your bestseller so when you do start with other products when you're talking about value ladder especially during the holidays so this is something we're going to teach in another challenge coming up in the fall but what you do. Is you lead with your bestseller. So if you have a bundle that you want to sell you an upsell you on a cell have a bigger car value. You can put your bestseller in there. Maybe it's a three pack of your bestseller or maybe it's you know that number one candle sent with a couple of the other sense to move seasonal product. So i think there's like exactly what me and i said you could take one product get it on multiple platforms you can take that product and make variations of it and you can also bundle with it. But that's that's your show horse right. That's the thing that you lead with. That's what you're known for. And then you get to expand after that loves us. Tell me more about your challenge. Ooh thanks for asking so we have. We had launched initially with rock your holiday promotion challenge so basically it was this idea of how to create holiday promotion so for product bosses. It's the cyber five right. It's black friday through cyber monday. And so many product entrepreneurs loved as challenged because we always think about it. You know number fifteenth. What am i going to sell discount. It they get really afraid of sales and discounts. They think they're going to train their customer to always expect a discount when in fact tip is during the holidays. Do expect that does count. Maybe not the rest of the year but at the holidays are looking for sales and deals so the rocket holiday promotion challengers are very first challenge. It's five days and we beasley. Teach them how to find their bestseller how to create a promotion around it. Is it a discount. That they're offering a buy one get one is a bundle and then how to share it with the world. So where do you post it on social media via emails how to set it in your calendar and that actually leads into our signature. Course which is multi she machine and our challenge multi stream machine. So it's the idea mean aside it's more sales on more platforms for more profit. So you take what you know works and you can expand that onto other platforms. So if you're an oetzi seller do you have your own website. Are you selling direct to consumer. Could you get on amazon. Does that make sense for you. Are you selling wholesale resulting in person. So it's really how to optimize different platforms to get in front of other people's audiences and customers so it grows your visibility and grows your revenue Our wreck your holidays. Challenge is really important because of the timeliness of it too. Were really show you how to take that bestseller as a little snowball and make it. Go to as big as you can. Because it's such an important time for them to make as much revenue as they can because of cuss consumer buying right gift giving season all those things that they need to know as a business that thing. That's really special about multi. Stream machine is is also that it focuses on stabilizing them as a business owner to so when you have for example We teach them for example how to get onto amazon. But we do it. In a way where they use amazon fulfillment but it goes beyond that. Like what i said you know. We teach them how to do inventory. Good photos that they need Systems that we've seen Small product-based businesses. Really lose a lot of money on. We teach them pricing because margins are everything we also teach them about shipping. So there's all these different things that they can do as a small business owner that they might not learn otherwise but they actually need a scale and stabilize at the same time because what if they were to get a whole bunch of orders they wouldn't be able to fulfill them and that's something we see even if like if somebody gets onto shark tank for example there's an influx of sales. And you're like they must they have it so good and then you see them fail and you wonder why it's because the system's broken the back end and so we really try to help the small business owner really scale so they can really succeed in the long run idea circle. So is there another challenge coming up or do we have to wait till november and the challenges coming up in september. So it's record holiday. Promotions challenge dot com. I would say good on her.

Yeah thanks so. I know people are going. What exactly do you guys do. That's one of the first thing people always ask gonna what you guys kind of talk about this. And i love this idea. As far as young actual physical products versus services in how that comes together no yes masterminds got podcasts. Gone a whole bunch of different things. You're on. I believe your own directory of small businesses shopping or soon to be released so a lot of fun things. I'll let you guys kind of take it and run with a few minutes here. Amazing thanks yeah so at. This is jacqueline by the way and At the product boss. What we realized is that in a world of you know coaching and coaches and digital products. Nobody was really helping the physical product based business. So that's maker manufacturers retailers people who are actually selling stuff and outside of like the amazon seller and outside of just the se seller but in general the physical product based world. You can sell anything. 'cause the difference is is that physical product based business owners have inventory sitting on shelves cost money. They have to shit. They need boxes. You know it's so easy to get a digital course up but the product stuff is harder so we we launched i initially with masterminds one on one type strategy sessions really working with people in that way but what we truly believe is that they can build million dollar brands out of their homes and they can run it with small small teams As a small business and we really want to align our product senators Life and lifestyle with the business at daydream of so that they're not feeling like oh. I have to be a million dollar brand. They could be any type of brand that they want that aligns with their vision right. We all have meaning. I live in two different places. We have very different. Lives and lifestyles and our businesses are are the vehicle to that dream life. yeah. I think that was absolutely perfect. I mean when we started using click on us for instance it was. It's really two parts of you know a kind of a coin we provide and coach products businesses. But we have learned how to do that by building. A service based business through click funnel. So it's been a learning experience on both sides of learning how what Our customers and clients need but also in a way of building our own business and just like with jacqueline said we are not in the same place. I'm in iowa she's in california right now and Doing it all virtually and building the dream life in the dream business together. What i will say is at the end of twenty twenty last year is when we actually launched the shop one in five pledge because what we saw as we could help physical product based business owners retailers get online. That was the first thing that we really had to do. Especially last year and we had to step up. It was like how do they sell more online. Thank goodness social media and just really interesting ways to sell online with video and all the things but we saw at the small businesses the hero of the story and so at the end of last year. We launched the shop one in five. Pledge where we're asking people to make one in five of their purchases from a small business online or offline and when you mentioned was the directory it's our small business shopping directory. Because what happened is we realized that people were like. I'd like to support small businesses. But where do i find them. And so we really wanted to make that connection for the consumer and the brand to find each other and so we're relaunching at this fall and twenty what you're in twenty twenty line But that you know that kind of turned into a secondary part of our business that we're really proud of so excited. It's been fun for me just to look at and really see some of the benefits that actually came from kobe and that is we have a lot of physical business owners like wait a second year. I thought i was kind of tied into only being able to do this. Thing locally where that came in and alison atas opportunity taking these physical products in actually shipping them or selling them in different areas. And i seem Again when i started quick. I think there is probably majority. People i can't we're the info preneurs whereas people more on on some it's in on digital products and ba fastest-growing part of finals right now is all things were seen in physical e commerce space. I've got some crazy things rolling out in september to really make a million times faster and easier for people using finals when they physical products. But i love you guys are talking about and really realizing that. I love the pledge. The one in five is a reality and all just always get it amazon. But they don't understand what the real benefit is of getting it from one of those five people that know and love you guys kind of extend on that. Yeah we really You know there's a reason why. Small businesses are considered the backbone of the economy. It's because they're needed their crucial. They make up four over forty percent of jobs and they also do a trickle effect right. there's a ripple effect in the local economy. They create the greatest impact to the national economy to the global economy. So it's very critical for us to all support small businesses in the way that we can best do that is together and so Right now i mean we really are. This is the chance for small businesses to shine. And so like jacqueline said. The the way that we've been trying to help is by gathering up all the small businesses that you know that your dollar goes further because one thing that happened with kovic is that people became more thoughtful with their dollar. They thought about social change. they thought about. Where's my dollar going. Is this going to a family. Is this eventually going to help the economy so all of that is this going to help them hire teams locally and so a lot of different things and we've been so excited about it because we've been seeing that. Everybody wanted that. They wanted to do that. They wanted to support small businesses. And we're kind of bringing that altogether and small businesses are also up lovling themselves. They're getting smarter. They're giving getting savvier. You're seeing that with click funnels that they're learning how to use new software to sell their their goods. They're also you know on video. The other thing that we really saw too is that There was this embraced of people buying from people. It's going back to that right. And so word of of mouth people buying from people. We have to show them video now. So there's all these different things of what does the world look like now when it first started them the pandemic and now that it's opening up a little bit. There's been a lot of hybrid things as far as you know. Local online and offline for example also the up leveling of the entrepreneur in them being the the real hero getting scrap year learning how to do different technology Adopting a different sort of life. Like now you order your groceries and you you don't go back to you know even though you can now maybe you don't still you know so Different things that were really starting to see people really using that purchasing power and doing that together. So we're we're excited to see how that develops even further into the pledge that so that's eleven graduates pharmacy buyers when you're looking at the sellers. What are you doing to tell the sellers how to take advantage of these opportunities. They're out there. Yes such a good You know question and we're working on the final sales patriot now. So the idea here is that it's really hard. I think especially for small businesses that don't have ad budgets. They don't understand it. They don't wanna hire an ad agency a lot of our boosting postage. Just don't understand the marketing component of it. And so we're really trying to share with these small business owners is that there are customers out there that want to buy support small businesses. They usually just don't know where to find them. They'll usually think oetzi or main street. Usa right like shop on a saturday shops on saturday versus shopsmall all the time. And so what. We're trying to do here. Show them like with thankfully with the impact that me. I have and the platform that we've built. We actually have a very large audience in front of us like our downloads. On our podcast are followers on instagram. Our email list. and so. that's what we're going to start and what we realized last year with the whole idea of past the micra or sharing your platform. We wanted to do that for small businesses so the brands that are out there that are small businesses. This is the way that we're going to spend our ad money to bring the customer. The consumer to the directory to take the pledge first and foremost and then to the directory to shop so when they're thinking about gifts there you know sometimes as a rabbit hole. Don't where any nazi right you go looking for something. Specific there are small businesses on amazon. Menas built a very big business on amazon as a small business. So it's letting people know. Hey this is a small business versus. You know a chinese import company kind of thing so they know who. They're supporting their making of as well..

Climate change is our reality. Here's how we're taking action
"Hello everyone. I'm al gore founder and chairman of the climate reality project. This extraordinary moment of great challenge and great loss is obviously also a moment of great awakening and a great opportunity. The global pandemic structural and institutional racism with it's horrific violence the worsening impacts of the climate crisis all of these have accelerated the emergence of a new and widespread collective understanding of our connection to the natural world the consequences of ignoring science and our sacred obligation to build a just society for all the climate reality project.

The Timothy Leary Conviction
"On january twenty first nineteen seventy former harvard professor and so called priest of lsd timothy. Leary was sentenced to ten years in prison on drug smuggling charges but in september of that year. The fifty year-old academic broke out of a san luis obispo facility with the help of the weatherman. The daring escape only added to the mystique of the man president. Nixon wants declared the most dangerous man in america. But just what made leery so dangerous. Well it might not surprise you. That richard nixon may have been exaggerating for his own political game according to authors. Bill minna tag. Leo and stephen l davis nixon's advisors suggested he find a public enemy to distract the public from his own flagging approval rating the war in vietnam and the struggling economy. They leary a prominent figure in the counterculture movement and because the former professor was a proud exponent of hallucinogenic drug use. The president's ir fit right in with his war on drugs narrative timothy leary was something of a self appointed spokesperson for the benefits of drug use. Which heat enjoyed since one thousand nine hundred sixty after an experimental magic mushrooms trip. The already noted psychologist became excited about the possibilities. Mushrooms and similar drugs had on the human brain during his tenure. At harvard he conducted academic experiments on the effects of hallucinogens. Drawing the attention and admiration of other notable nineteen sixties figures famed authors. Like gin berg and jack kerouac willingly participated in leary's experiments and it was perhaps their involvement that catapulted the professor onto the national stage before long leary was touring the country speaking about his research and reportedly brushing up against the rich and famous inevitably a backlash arrived. Leary's teaching colleagues criticized his experimentation with lsd. They believed research of that. Nature should be left to medical doctors not psychologists meanwhile psychology experts who once lauded leary's earlier work now made it clear that his drug centered experiments were less praiseworthy. Despite these blows leary insisted that taking lsd was quote a sacramental ritual one that could expand human consciousness. Harvard university did not agree and fired him in nineteen sixty three but by that stage leary had a new life. He was a counterculture touchstone for the masses and a legitimizing scientific voice in the pro drug movement. He rubbed shoulders with marilyn monroe and sang with john. Lennon and yoko ono in short he was a powerful voice advocating for drug use throughout the nineteen sixties. He even appeared before a senate committee to argue in favor of legislation. That would make it legal for adults to use hallucinogenic drugs. So when richard. Nixon assumed the presidency in nineteen sixty nine leary was squarely in his sights. Ostensibly nixon wanted to eliminate drug use in the country. Leary very much did not. That made him dangerous. So it's little surprise that when leary's appeal of his nineteen sixty five drug-smuggling conviction was overturned. The government wanted a second bite at the apple but any joy nixon and his cabinet might have felt in putting leary. Away was short lived using his network of contacts. The former professor escaped prison remaining on the run until nineteen seventy three when he was detained in afghanistan and sent back to the united states. There he was jailed in the notorious folsom. Prison and briefly befriended charles manson and though his sentence was for ten years leary was paroled in nineteen. Seventy six having served just three. It's a surprising twist day given that so many drug offenders imprisoned for decades on similar offenses then again timothy leary was famous and white which might have had something to do with his early release

Coronavirus among health workers: Exposure, lack of testing
"Workers are still having a hard time getting coronavirus tests and as NPR's Laurel Wamsley reports, the lack of testing means there could be lots of asymptomatic healthcare workers caring Pretty sick people. In a recent round table with Joe Biden. Mary Turner, a nurse in Minnesota, told the president elect something he found surprising. Do you know that I have not been tested yet? And I have been on the front lines in the ice to you since February. You're kidding me. No guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control say that healthcare personnel should be tested if they're symptomatic or haven't known exposure to the corona virus. But treating covert 19 patients while wearing personal protective equipment, or pee pee Doesn't count as exposure that warrants testing. A recent survey by national nurses United, the nation's largest nurses union, found that only 42% of registered nurses in hospitals said they had ever been tested for covert 19. It continues to amaze me that we are not doing this. Michael Mina is an epidemiologist at the Harvard School of Public Health. He says, Well, PPE generally offers good protection. There have been outbreaks of hospitals at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, where Minna runs the virology Lab. One outbreak involved 42 employees and 15 patients. Hospital blamed patients not wearing masks, staff without eye protection and employees failing to social distance while eating. Now that is an outbreak that shouldn't have happened. I believe very firmly that we would not have seen an outbreak grow so so quickly and it wouldn't have even been able to get started. If we were doing frequent testing. There are so many ways that hospital could be doing this and they're not Ministers. Hospitals could either use rapid auntie gin tests or pool PCR tests to do screening for the virus more cheaply they get Have ever on swab and put 50 swabs that a time into 12 and run that one tube and cool the test for very, very cheap. You could do a whole hospital departments with one Past for 50 Bucks a day. California State Health Department announced new guidance two weeks ago that strongly recommends weekly testing of healthcare personnel. But hospitals have struggled just to get enough tests for patients. Susan Butler. Wu is associate professor of clinical pathology at USC, and she directs the clinical microbiology lab at a large hospital in Los Angeles. So we were to take something like this recommendation. Where, Okay, let's say we screen everybody weekly. There's very few clinical hospital labs that would be able to have that much testing available to be able to do that. Color. Woo says that her hospital there are 10,000 workers that would likely need testing under the new guidance, and she says, without operational support from the state, the new protocols are going to cause problems. Including greater testing backlogs, but as a country because we don't have a national plan or national strategy, these air this This is the situation we find ourselves. Football players can get tests people choosing to socialize and wanting to feel safer doing so, even though it's a pandemic can get tests but a program to test the country's health care workers. Nope. Many nurses and doctors suspect hospitals are worried that widespread testing could reveal asymptomatic cases and then result in quarantining critically needed staff. And for Mina, the Harvard epidemiologist, The lack of regular testing of health care workers raises other questions. There's a clear problem when we're saying that the greatest risk people, the people who are at the greatest risk to themselves and to their patients or the health care workers, and so that's why we're going to give them vaccines before anyone else. But then when we don't have a vaccine, and it's just testing, we say, don't worry about it. It's not a big deal. You don't need to be tested. It's an approach, he says. That doesn't make sense.

Confidence and Minimalism by Jennifer
"Confidence plus minimalism. Find the courage to chase your dreams. By jennifer of simply fiercely dot com. I'll be thirty five in a few months. And i'm unemployed and homeless. Last year. I gave up my full time job and my apartment to travel the world and when i returned to australia later this year. I have no intention of pursuing a career or permanent address instead. I plan to buy van. Do odd jobs and travel around australia. This is my dream. And i'm thrilled with my choice. For a few years ago. I would have struggled to admit this to anyone. Why busy goes against the status quo and my age. I should be buying a house getting promoted or having a baby or i should at least want to admitting that i don't at least for now is scary because i know a lot of people will judge me. I've being called indulgent privileged and irresponsible all at mit that i am privileged in the big scheme of the world. But i don't think there's anything indulgent about doing. What makes you happy. More people should try it and irresponsible will say you never know what goes on behind the scenes. I'll wager that. I'm more prepared for the future than many other people my age. But i digress. I'm sharing my dreams with you today. Because i now have the confidence to own who i am. Confidence or lack of it is what keeps so many people from chasing dreams is the missing link the final piece of the puzzle that we all need to finally take that leap and do what our hearts are urging us to do. And i found a giant dose of confidence minna. Surprising place my minimalist lifestyle. Consumerism is a mask every time you make a purchase. You're making a statement about who you are whether it's intentional or not. If you buy an expensive handbag you're telling the world that you're wealthy and successful. Have you buy a popular brand of yoga pants. You're telling the world that you're healthy and a yogi if you buy souvenirs overseas you're telling the world you're well traveled. Obviously the stay. Mini make is subjective. But you get the idea because of this. We often turn to shopping when we feel insecure. When i used to feel bad about my weight or my body i would always buy stilettos. Because a towering heels made me feel sexy or when. I didn't feel successful enough at work. I'd buy expensive just to show. I could afford it often. It wasn't even worried about what other people were thinking instead. I'll trying to prove something to myself. But really all i was doing was hiding. My purchases. were a mask that kept me from phasing my body issues and self doubt when. I embraced the minimalism. I no longer had a place to hide and had no choice but to face my insecurities head on which led to self acceptance and confidence. Decluttering is accepting who you really are if consumerism is a mask than decluttering is accepting who you really are. My downsized my life. I recall being really surprised by the powerful emotions. I felt when saying goodbye to my stuff. I spent hours agonizing over donating a single dress while the drama. Why was it so difficult to toss and move on because saying goodbye to my mini. Dresses meant acknowledging a. Don't go to nightclubs anymore. Selling my blender meant accepting is not this movie. Drinking green goddess. I wanted to be and donating my sewing machine. Mentos never going to design my own wardrobe much less. Finish the blouse. I've been working on for years. You get the picture when you let go of things. You're saying goodbye to the person you want to be an accepting who you really are. You also let go of a lot of negative feelings about yourself. I felt a lot of guilt and shame. Because i wasn't living up to the lifestyle. My stuff was promising. My own worn party. Dresses would taunt me from my closet. When i stayed home on saturday night and my sewing machine while she was nasty so when i said goodbye it was liberating. I started to see all the good things about myself instead of focusing on my perceived failures another big check in the self-confidence box becoming a minimalist is a challenge. Finally becoming a minimalist gave me confidence. Because it's not easy on learning a lifetime of habits going against what is normal and saying goodbye to your stuff is a challenge and it takes strength. Commitment is an accomplishment like running a marathon or writing a novel in something to be proud of. When i look back on how far i've come where i remember my overflowing closet. I pairs of shoes and my maxed out credit cards. And then i look at my life and now i'm blown away a few years ago i never ever would have thought this was possible but here i am in the pride i feel that having come so far has given me a confidence boost like i never imagined becoming a minimalist is one of the most important things i've ever done and it has one hundred percent hands down enabled me to chase my dreams and build a life. I truly love if you're considering minimalism. I strongly encourage you to take the plunge and might just be the missing link. You need to start chasing your dreams.

Floppies: The Disks that Changed the World
"Jordan Montana is a pack rat. He's the creator of games like karate and the Prince of Persia and he meticulously saved everything along the way journals sketches and storyboards all of it so it came as a bit of a shock to him when he couldn't find something he'd saved and that something was a pretty big deal back in two thousand two magner was working on Prince of Persia the sands of time. The programmers wanted to add the classic version of the game to their playstation two update as an Easter Egg. So they asked him for the original source code but when magner looked in his archives he couldn't find it. He searched everywhere the source code that he'd written on his old apple to the cody was positive. He saved had vanished fast forward. Ten years mechanisms. Dad is cleaning house and buried at the back of a closet is a ratty looking shoebox holding a bunch of dusty old three and half inch floppy disks one is labeled Prince of Persia Source Code Copyright Nineteen eighty-nine and in brackets in all caps. The word original the long lost code found at last it had sat in that box for a quarter century before being unearthed like some archaeological discovery. But this was two thousand twelve. How would he be able to get it off? Those old discs and with the data still be intact. Was it in fact too late to save his work saving our work these days? It often happens. Automatically with programs regularly pushing stuff into the cloud. We don't worry about manually savings anymore. In fact a whole new generation doesn't even know what that save icon represents side note. It is not a vending machine but for many decades saving storing and transferring. Our data had to be done using some physical media when the personal computing revolution took off which we heard about in our last episode on the Altar Eight hundred. There was one piece of technology that became synonymous with saving the floppy disk. It seems so simple. Now but floppies change the course of our history because they helped turn microcomputers into personal computers. I'm surrounded Barak and this is command. Line Heroes Unoriginal podcast from that HAP. Let's put a pin in Jordan Lechner's floppy disk discovery for a moment. Welcome back to it first. Though I want to learn how the floppy disk was born in the first place and how it became such a crucial part of the TECH WORLD FOR ALMOST FORTY YEARS. Our first stop eighteen ninety. Before electronic computers existed there were electrical mechanical computing devices and the method forgetting data in and out of them was through punchcards the size of a dollar bill when electrons computers came along in the fifties. Ibm standardized those punch cards with eighty and twelve roads. A punched hole would form one type of character. No whole meant another for a long while. Those Punch cards were the main method for data input but handling hundreds of cards for bigger. More complex programs was hugely cumbersome. There had to be a better way to save and transfer information next up paper tape which came along in the nineteen fifties to hear how paper tape played a central role in the origin of personal computing. Listen to our last episode. Paper tape had the same punched hole method of reading data as punch cards. Because it's all one tape. No one had to worry about getting cards mixed up it could carry more. Data was much faster to us but as many computers grew in capacity they needed more and more tape to store programs like punch cards. Paper tape eventually met its limit. Enter MAGNETIC TAPE. The key ingredient was mylar a tough flexible material coated with magnetic oxide to make the tape recordable nine tracks could store up to one hundred seventy five megabytes per tape. That was a big deal in fifties and sixties magnetic tape drives of ten and a half inch. Wheels became standard issue for businesses. But the problem take is that it's great for moving large chunks date of one place to another. It's really hard to search on them to find anything in particular when we would install software on our mini computers in mainframes using tate. But it really wasn't that good for anything small and portable or if we wanted to do anything interactive on our with our data that Stephen Vaughan Nichols contributing editor at CBS interactive sure. Magnetic tape could store a lot more data. He was too big and swallow. It was only practical for the mainframe world really again. There had to be a better way and that better way came along in Nineteen fifty-six when launched its very first decide drive the IBM three fifty disk storage unit. It was a component of the three or five ramic mainframe computer a machine that filled an entire room. Here's Dave Bennett. A former IBM disk and storage product engineer. There was storage in core memory. In fact the disk storage device of which ramic was the first was a storage device that permitted random access to give on record as opposed to a tape. Drive interesting thing. That disk drive. Almost didn't see the light of day because it threatened. Ibm's punch-card business but the project was eventually approved. Problem was the drive contained. Discs made of solid metal ramic literally. Wait a ton it had to be moved with forklifts and transport it by large cargo. Not the most convenient storage method but out of that came a better solution of a floppy disk was originally developed for new need and the reason was that there was an intermediate kind of storage originally. There was a computer code and then there was the computer memory. The working memory but with system three sixty there was a new class of memory in between which they called firmware and in system three sixty there was unique technology for the firmware in various forms it was either a special kind of punched card or there was a thing called. Transformer read only storage but the new need was the desire to go from these technologies two semi conductor technology in the days when semiconductor technology was volatile. That means that the memory in semiconductors went away when the power was removed so there had to be a way of recharging bringing the program back into that memory when the power was restored for loading what was called a micro program or that intermediate memory and the need for such a device is what caused the development of the floppy disk dryer so in nineteen sixty seven. A small team of engineers led by David. Noble started developing an inexpensive system for loading those micro-programmes into mainframe computers. The code name for their project was Minna. Noble personally went through all the things that he could think of including various forms of punched cards including use of tape cassettes. And I don't know what else he went through but he hit on the idea of using an inexpensive form of this based on a flexible disc very inexpensive read only mechanism. The Minnow team wanted to be able to mail their micro-programme to various locations. That needed to load it. So the product for sending that program around had to be durable enough to fly through the mail without having its data damaged some kind of casing now what they actually had to do. In order to make it maleable was they decided to put it in a plastic container that was fairly rigid and they would actually read and write the disk while. I was inside of this plastic container like an envelope of plastic envelope. And when you have a coating on a disk and a rigid head you're going to have where and when you have where you have where particles and the problem they had was that as the were particles built up it's kind of caused an avalanche effect. The particles would act as additional abrasive. And then pretty soon with the particles being loose in there. You're where the recording track out and didn't work anymore. So a really smart guy that was on that program men name. Her Thomson came up with a plan that was based on a household dusting fabric that three m soul to housewives for dusting their furniture and he put a sheet of that in there between the envelope and the disk and that material picked up the were particles and they embedded themselves in that fabric and prevented the avalanche effect and really saved the

Tinashe's Independent Return to the Music Industry
"Welcome my girl tonight. I just want to let you guys. We met one night. We were bullock La at the club. We were extreme batting. Yeah it's stream fighting Buzi Veloso five and these two girls were literally like the white man who does a tight wire across the gray anion on heels this long dancing and work in. And we're like we need to know y'all y'all come party. Etta linked up linked up. And we've been friends ever since two dropping it low. That was a fun night burn night. Yeah there's no way she's out with the people she was I with the people in Chile Chile cheers to that graduated into it. I gotTa get strange. You get into it. Thank you new record. Save Room for us. Yeah out a million a week in a week. What's it like? That fans are responding to this new. Sound it honestly means everything because this is me you know like before. I think I was learning kind of coming up in the game finding my way and I felt really great to be in the position with my previous record label to release. My first vote was two point five albums and learned a lot. Got To work with all these different producers collaborate with so many different amazing artists. But I felt kind of towards the end of that experience that I wasn't hundred percent being true to like who I needed to be. And that was for. Like a zillion different reasons. It's really hard to pinpoint like one particular reason or it was over the course of a seven year relationship with that situation so I found myself in the place where I just felt like I needed to step back like fine pause in my life really reinvent and become artists that I felt that I truly like was an and just continue on like a trajectory that I was headed towards. I felt like I was kind of like coasting through my career like going through the motions instead of doing what you really really wanted. Artists come here and all they want is at record deal. They want apple to see them. They want to be a part of that. And you had it and then you let it go. Was that a mind for you to like say. Ok. I'm going to do this on my own. Yes myself. It's a big risk right because you lose that kind of machine that kind of solidifies like a lot of different things way budgets. Like making sure that you know you get your stuff out there at first. It seems like okay. How am I going to actually even function as an artist without this machine? That has been internationally pushing me for so long. You know there's so many different components that go into it and I think for me Taking that risk felt like a better option than to continue on what I was doing before like I had to for my soul like take it there. I had to like for me. It felt very very much like spiritual like an instinct calling to like. I have to you know this is. This is the time. This is the perfect opportunity. Gobert Sean you said like there's a spider. My house yeah. I'm not just going to kill spider. I'M GONNA burn the whole month and read somewhere that you've fired fired. You parted ways with everybody. Everybody here in makeup. You parted ways with the you party ways with lawyers rainbows managers lawyers businessmen and Jerry's style literally across the Board. Just wanted to be like clean slate. I'm GonNa just from the ground up really reduce. I connect reconnected with a lot of people that I was really great friends with and I've I guess also kind of re affirmed the of my friendships in this industry because the have built a lot of like really genuine relationships. And I think that those have also really kind of kicked into gear in taking me to another place where I'm using actual real creative energy and people around me instead of kind of just. I don't know it's hard. It's hard to describe but like when you're kind of in sometimes a label situation at least in my experience. It feels like there's this disconnect between the artists and Mike. Every thing that happens like even like collaborations like you don't really talk to the artists when you collaborate with them or like say you like yeah you WanNa like create something you WanNa do something. There's always this transactional situation that happens. Let's let's bring that to people who don't realize slumber party Britney Spears. Oh my God when you collaborate with the Britney are you in the studio with Britney or are you talking about her looks I send you a track and say we want you to be on this. Yes yes yes. Yes which is very typical of situations so it just feels very much more natural. Now that I'm having to kind of reach out to people myself make those connections myself and it feels more valuable and just feels like everything. There's a better synergy that I do. Because you Rick Rubin right now in the sense reminding do this at Your House. You do this on your own my own space in my own environment which feels really comfortable and really genuine authentic which. I think people can tell the difference. You know. There's so much. Fake Ness in the world that people have really a craving and looking for authenticity. Whatever that means even if that means like being independent doing stuff on your own now how did you find friends in the music industry? Because I feel like it's the mother. Oh yeah everybody answer themselves. It's Ache I feel I. Can you explain this to me? We went on a hike that everybody's just offer themselves. How do you find those authentic artists that are actually friends? And who are there for you during this process? I think again. That's kind of what I've really been able to realize a lot with this current time period. Because I've been able to see who is there for just for the art or is there just for me as a as a friend or as the support system. I've really been able to find out who those people are and I think. Yeah real genuine friendships. Maybe in the music industry can be few and far between but I think that you can still find great collaborative friendships and great stuff. Yeah from my make some people. Yeah you know anybody that surprise you when you were like. Hey Bro I want you to be on his mother. Navam and they were like Who Not specifically now that I can think of where you have intuition too. Yeah yeah the whole thing. Are you try to kind of already collaborate with people who are seemingly giving you that kind of energy already yeah? It's almost like single life. It's like when you've been married. Seven years mighty big and then you get the single moment you live your best life and you meet all these really cool people and you find yourself then. You're doing this whole thing. Would you ever go back into a marriage with the label after doing it by yourself and if you would what would be different? I would say never say never at this current point now the right situation came on came about I would definitely consider it But for me. What really held me back from kind of even exploring that with releasing this last album was. I just felt like there was so much of this kind of same thought process So just kind of like going from one relationship to another. That was just extremely similar. So it didn't feel like growth for me. I felt like I had to give myself the opportunity to try to do it without this dated mentality of like just approach to making music and our approach to releasing music is. It's hard like artists. Talk about it all the time you know getting. It's hard to get there album out. It's hard to get creative differences or whatever I think it's the where business meets art. There's always going to be a risk you know. And now you're just doing art and now I'm just focusing our and it feels so much better. Yes so single we always talk about how Minna garbage in different locations different garbage gets at different locations. I say that it was an LA thing. And I beg to differ so you think it's just all over the place it's an epidemic. The new it's the old corona virus garbage. How do you have a hard time finding a dude got the MTA nausea? I mean well first of all I don't like actively look so that's part of it date maybe if I like dated maybe and meet some Nice people just genuinely don't like carve out the time but I've been to your house Taco Tuesday it's fine. There's some dude. I don't like talk to them. That's because you're too busy by the way this girl hugging the Taco. This girl has egg forty five people over at our house for Taco Tuesday. She's making the tacos. Her brother at work. She invites her parents to bring shrimp over to finish back on. We ran out of shrimp so I needed a more so I called my mom. Mom bring us another that. She comes in like stealth mode. But here's the lease and then leaves mom doesn't even stay with its hind. You find that family in Los Angeles because it's hard to make friends and find people who are genuinely here for you and not here for you the celebrity. Well I think for me the number one thing. That's helped me learn how to navigate is growing up here. I think you have a huge advantage because I think when you come here you tend to go to like all these certain circles in these certain environments where everybody around there is kind of trying to meet people or network or connect or be a part of the circle. When you're literally grow up here you're just in the suburbs here in Glendale Galleria. You know you're just you see that as like a part of the city that you can kind of use as a tool you can dip into relief from so I feel like people that are from the city and people who move here kind of experience l. a. differently just in their perspective of like the. Hollywood life like I've a lot of people who live here like people are so fake people are so fake my God and I'm like you have. Have you met people like really really like from here? There's a lot of soul there's a lot of heart is a lot of real genuine culture. But you could be who who are not from. La Because to get into the circle is hard okay. That's the other part that is why I kinda have this great circles because everybody that is in my immediate framework but whatever is people that have been there like from time so to get into that circle takes. Tell you what it feels like. Remember in blade whenever like the Vampires are all at Club in Germany and they're all like dance and Raven and all of a sudden the non vampire walks in and everyone's like nothing feels a non. La DO TRIES TO WALK INTO LA. Gang announced true. It's true it's hard I feel for. I feel for the people who move here as the Queen. Bee says because that's what happens. The Queen of Talk. You're cool you're at TACO Tuesday out. Good job tell people how you gotTa Start. Because you got your start at an early age. It's a it's quite a long story so when people get asked like how'd you get into the industry? It's hard to say it's like one thing or another. I was in my first movie when I was five years old. I started dancing four. I have been actively entertaining or like in the business since you could walk as long as I can remember. Yeah so that has just volved and continued to be like. I was thinking about my career and I was eight years old. You know so. It's always been a part of my life. It's like who I am and

Talking to the Dead
"Today we're talking about the seance communicating with the dead has been around for centuries United States just after the civil war when so many men lost on.

2 Docs Talk
The End of the Paper Chart
"So I a few definitions. You'll hear people using the terms. Electronic medical record and electric health record interchangeably. Heck I do that. But they're not exactly the same in. Mr Is a chart that is used within one specific clinic. It can't be accessed by anyone outside that clinic whereas an e HR electronic health record is usually system-wide or multi multi system wide providers from different clinics within the same health system or ACO can all access the record yes but for the purposes of this talk either Emr or E. H.. which are will do? I'm going to use 'em are okay me too now on when we say the. Mr We mean both Emr and EHR either one so moving on Comores are basically all the health records notes. Labs diagnostic studies insurance. People work demographic data for every patient and Mars have actually been around for decades in in fact the VA hospital system was one of the early adopters of Mars. Remember the Martha Audie Murphy and Mess Cooling. God that thing was the most user unfriendly no-frills eum are ever. Yeah but it was still pretty cool. I Love I would be taking care of a patient in San Antonio Audie Murphy and I could see what had happened to him when he was ed another. Va in the country. Green Flash Her sir okay to understand how cool that is. We have to talk about the battle days so back before. EMR's there were paper charts. It's yeah and they were often illegible. I mean doctors notes were hand written and most people's handwriting isn't what it should be and doctors have notoriously bad the handwriting. I don't I do. I still do horrible. Also data was often out of order. There were reams of unnecessary papers. Redundant paper someone else's papers burs and the chart and you can find charts when you need them. Someone else had them or they were just flat out. Lost or parts of the chart were lost. Yeah usually it was very important diagnostic success that was missing and also in residency. You could lose your privileges if you didn't dictate so you had to go through. I don't know if you had this. But we had to dictate the charts our own and are attending 's and they would our records of stack up down stairs in the basement and we'd have to go down there and get all these paper charts and dictate all this crap. It was horrible God too so awful. An on top of all of that hospitals and clinic seeded huge rooms to store these charts charts like the entire basement of a hospital medical records. Yeah so happily. Most of these problems disappeared with the arrival of electron ICK medical record. Right and wants wants. Things have been digitized. You can really do a lot of different things with them. You can actually find the data and read it for one. Yeah People's notes are now suddenly legible and charge. Don't get lost and the chart can be accessed remotely. You don't have to be in the radiology reading room to look at someone's x Ray for example you can which makes me a little sad but I always loved that and you can call it. Data and look at trends and that data can be sent electronically to and from other physicians clinics labs insurance companies anywhere. You needed to be sent as as as long as you will be patient privacy. Of course you should say that. Yeah anyway as with all technological advances there were a lot of promises in this case the promise was that. Mr would make make physicians better doctors. There'd be more accurate diagnoses. More timely therapies fewer mistakes streamlined billing practices and most importantly improved efficiency all this intimately physicians would have more time to spend with their patients exactly the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow more time with patients. and has this happened the the more time with patients part. I mean you know it. Hasn't there have been several studies showing that Dr Spent about twice as much time on the computer as they spend with their patient and tons of anecdotal evidence. Well Yeah Heck. I can confirm that just based on my own practice. And here's the thing. Physicians are spending more time on the computer when they're both with and away from their patients. Just look at what happened when my mom went to the pulmonologist so what is happening. Partly because of the increasingly complex regulatory environment in medicine Medicare Medicaid and insurance companies are demanding documentation for every bill submitted and the documentation must meet criteria. Set Out by Medicare Medicaid before or the physician will be reimbursed for their services so this documentation happens on. The computer is in submitted with the bill to the pair and the primary person. Who Does the documenting is? Is the physician right. Here's an example of typical day for a physician. Prior to seeing the patient will review the medical record mostly so they know what brings a patient in for the day the and also to remind them what meds the patient is on pertinent parts of the past medical history now then. The physician sits down with the patient in the exam. We're there as he gets another computer so while talking to the patient the physician enter data into the Mr about this current visit then after the visitors over the physician will finish documenting with the assessment and plan. Once the notice complete. The physician will then bill for the visit. Sometimes documenting takes so long. That notes aren't completed until the patients have been seen in. The clinic is closed for the day. That's also in. The physicians will correct any notes that need correctly so in my practice there is a person who was hired solely to review physicians knows and make sure her they meet Medicare criteria for the bill. They submitted at the notes. Don't meet criteria. They get sent back to the physician to cracked. And here's a very important point not all. EMR's ours are created equal Semimar. Great they're designed with doctors in mind the allow you to pull data Ford from previous notes. Limit the number of clicks needed to complete the relevant portions of the now they're customizable demise able in the end. Product is easy to read but most Mars have a primary function other than communication. And fortunately this is true. The primary function of many Mars uses billing. And when that's the case for the Mr for doctors will be inefficient and awkward US right. We can't customize it to our needs. We ended up doing a lot of data entry and the end product. Arctic is not something that's easy for other providers to read or understand so the physician spends more and more hours out of the working day with their face in front of a screen instead of making eye contact with her patience chance. Yeah so just a quick aside for second if there are any residents out there listening especially residents who are near the end of training interviewing for jobs. Make sure you talked to. Physicians is in the practice. You're considering and ask them about the Mar- they use exactly. Are they happy with it. Did they spend time at home documenting because they don't have time at work is is the MR efficient or awkward user friendly or the friend of the billing office if the docs you talk to your unhappy with their Mr. Then it's pretty likely you'll be too so move on so so I work with an Mr. Everyday I never look at a computer when I'm with a patient I don't have computers in the room and I don't bring my laptop into the room I had. I decided to make that time sacred without a computer to distract me. I can make eye contact with my patients Cedar subtle reactions to questions conversations. About feelings hopes expectations careers are more likely to come up although squishy subjective things. Your mom didn't get a chance to talk about exactly and I listened better my agenda doesn't dominate the visit. And I'm more likely to see the patient as a human being not a diagnosis our list of diagnoses. Some physicians might think you're no computer. Stance is a bit extreme. So be it. The time I spend with my patients is what makes my job worthwhile and meaningful and joyful and I suspect this is. This is the same for most physicians. Why would I want to compromise that the end result would be a miserable me an unhappy patient? But here's the thing you work in practice that allows you to do that. This is not a luxury Minna. Physicians can afford so what to do when the MR takes over your relationship with the patient first. We need to acknowledge that. This regulatory environment in which we practice is at the heart of the problem so we should all be you proactive about healthcare reform. Okay but short of ideology. What should doctors do? Well look at your Emr and see if it's the problem F it is lobby for a new EMR car or change practices if need be if you're Mars decent than there are a few things physician can do on a daily basis. That might improve things. Yeah so first position position computer in such a way that your back is not to. The patient also involve the the patient with a computer. Show them what you're looking at. Ask them to help update the record. Let them know what you're typing while you're doing it and make sure you spend time away from the keyboard during every visit for some doc sits at the beginning for some. It's in the middle. Whatever you feel comfortable with but at some point you should step away from the computer? Make eye contact with your patient so some practices have hired scribes to document for the physician. Yeah that's a luxury to adding additional staff as an expensive way to solve a problem. Yes it's true and it's kind of awkward to bring a third person into the examining room is so here's the thing. Technology Technology often promises to bring us together as human beings to give us more time to spend doing the things we love with the people. We love just look at the facebook motto. Bring the world closer together together. I thought it was making the world more open and connected or maybe move fast and break things. I think those are previous mottos but whatever my point is we don't always use use technology in a way that maximizes promise and the same is true for. EMR'S DO I want to go back to the paper charts absolutely not but neither do I wanna rule where I no longer remember my interactions with others because my head was buried in some form of technology. You know whether that's at home or at work amen to that so I suggest we take extreme steps to keep this from happening like keeping electronics out of the examining room or demanding a better. Mr Or as patients requesting that doctors move away from the screen. Yeah I think that's really good. Just interjecting here. Yeah as a patient. That's your time to. You can stand up for what you need in that moment with your doctor ask the doctor. Could we talk face to face for a moment if that's what you need and if a doctor has a problem with that you know maybe it's time look

Boris Johnson, Tim Rolls And Jones discussed on Financial Issues
"To UK politics now and Boris Johnson and Jeremy hunt to going head to head in the conservative leadership contest. They'll take part in a series of sixteen hustings across the UK as Tory policy members vote to pick the next prime minister, the former London mayor is the clear favourite, but the foreign secretary says he believes he can win. She is. For more, I'm joined by Bloomberg UK government editor Tim rolls down the line, Tim, great to have you with us. Is Boris a showman? It looks like it doesn't because as you suggest he's so both pillar in the politics. And let's not forget a ten. The next is going to be held among a hundred and sixty thousand paid-up members of seventy puffy then in today's of the rest of the nation that totally members every pray Brexit on the whole. They've open issues savings as to Johnson and have been very lot since ripples, spicy position. So I think boys don't follow the next challenge. A winning thoughts east. We'll say unpredictable. There were two candidates, going forward Jones could come unstuck. If it goes real Minna debate, who in one of these hustings events that you mentioned that he will say that he went to giving up just yet. Tim annual story on this. You say for the EU the prospect of Johnson victory would be their worst nightmare. Just remind listeners what the EU what the u k what ball kits can expect from Boris Johnson in terms of his approach to Brexit if he wins this. Well, European Union officials have belly able to disguise that distasteful Jones said they blame him to Brexit because he leads campaign in Sunday, sixty lacy him as untrustworthy because some of the promises he's made many of the being bulletins that we hate them, actually dislike Jolson style as well as into it was something they think we trust appreciate I mean, I think children's breaks it position, I think, save is that he will just draw the UK straight out of the again unique with deal of the end of oak toba weedy trying to renegotiate vocally, okay? The existing deal over the line, but maybe a bit too pessimistic that actually children is slightly silken his language in recent days on the new deal Brexit. I will try if he can to do a deal, but we'll see whether that manages to be something he can achieve. And what are the prospects, Tim is well, all of an election this year. I think it's very wheel actually we've had a story or whatever a couple of days. Which suggested that some of children's back as I see already owning. That's office, civility. They see it with a new two of Johnson's abilities, his charisma and his ability as I say to inject, and you sense of the country that the conservative policies teams could be transformed that he could easily beat Jeremy Kobe in action by still something that could be full stormed. The conservative penalty if they feel if Johnson is he can't get outbreaks if you might have no option, but the go in the next even if he doesn't move on. So it's a win if you interested in the camp for these kind of risks look with very interested in everything tame, what should we? What should we imagine? We might wake up to you on Monday morning. Monday morning. The hustings by those sections where each of the candidate gets to stand up and make his page to the conservative members stuff's happening on Saturday today and say, we will we will find out by by the end have gone. And then they'll be the Sunday newspapers and you can expect these critically me between those Jones. Tonight Jeremy Huw they'll the interviews. I'm she'll by the leaders on the unveiling that's nice needs. Join that still say thanks. We will be the campaign, getting ready.
Talk Nerdy to Me
This Week in Nerd
"Halloween. Just happened this past week. So of course, everything's going Christmas. There were skipping right past thanksgiving. Netflix has a show coming up called the Christmas chronicles going to be starring Kurt Russell as Santa Claus this premise, it's not a new idea Santa's so used to stay up to try to catch Santa. They actually do catch him the kind of hideaway in his sleigh. And they cause an activist. So the sleigh is wrecked. And they are in jeopardy of not having Christmas presents for everybody by Christmas morning. So of course, Santa uses his Christmas. Magic calls on his elves and his reindeer, and they are able to. I'm sure deliver everything by Christmas morning because it looks like it's going to be a kid show and got to end on a happy note. I looked at the trailer. Trae looks cute. It's something I'll probably watch it. It'll probably be a yearly thing around Christmas. Now. Kurt. Russell is great actor love everything. He's in just about so Christmas carnivals on. Netflix comes out November twenty second day after thanksgiving market on Gallinger, the aero versus having their fall crossover. They're going to bring in a ton. They're announcing a ton of characters are going to be introduced I've already told you guys about ruby rose being bad woman. They're bringing in psycho, pirate a. He used to be a third tier type character. He's god. He he has Medusa mask where he's able to affect your motions. And he's almost like a motion vampire, he can suck your emotions away from you the bringing him in the one I'm really really excited about though is monitor they're going to be bringing in monitor. He was born on one of the moons of owa, you know, from green lantern says the their base of operation, but there's also an anti monitor who deals with anti energy. And he goes around, basically suck and all the energy out of planets in in places and destroying them. Monitor is the opposite. He's he tries to save all these places. I there's no word on whether they're going to have Lila the orphaned, girl, he rescued in. She became a blue harbor jer on of his sidekicks, but they have shown monitor and Marv Wolfman has said that it's a very close adaption to what he wanted in the comics. He's really excited about it. So if the creators excited about it, I'm excited about it. So not only are we going to be introduced to bat woman and monitor psycho pirate. Ross it'll have lowest lane will be introduced Stephen Mellon green guessing are going to be kind of switching roles trigger twins loan. You know, one's green arrow once flashed or kind of going to swap as part of this else. World's crossover is they're doing a lot for this spoils crossover. It's probably going to gather a lot. Attention on a lot of people going to watch. It is going to start on flash December night at eight PM eastern time and continued through on arrow to December tenth APM an end with supergirl December eleventh at eight PM also in the vein of DC comics bat, girl, bird, Berta, pray. We've been telling you about that movie. Lots of great casting for that. We have another update they're bringing in the big villains. That'd be black mask, and they have cast Ewan McGregor to be black mask. He started out as a Batman villain. He's a nother rich guy from GOP him. But he went the opposite way. His batman. He became one of the crime lords. He's used his money and influence to create the false faces society and kind of rule Gotham 's criminal underground for quite some time. He pops up every now, and then and Batman now they're bringing him in bad, girl and birds of prey you McGregor. Great actor. I think he'll do a great job on black mask all union ten does. Switch owners. I know the biggest gripe than tend to switch guys have is. There's not a lot of apps being developed for it right now. That's changing they are going to put out a YouTube app. Sometime next couple of weeks for ten to switch. So you'll at least be able to pull up YouTube videos and watch on the switch since Google owns YouTube. You can bed this not going to be much longer until they have the Google browser. Ready for Nintendo, switch also. So just be patient guys. They are developing apps from the intendo switch. It's it's a popular gaming network not going anywhere shifts going to get bigger. So you early adopters just gonna have to bide your time. But you are getting a YouTube app in the next couple of weeks. We are used to seeing crossovers in comics and even on TV shows like arrow verse I told you earlier in movies even. I this is a new one to me. It's it may have happened before. I don't remember anything like this board game crossover. They're going to have a board game with two licenses crossing over. Stay with me on this one men in black and Ghostbusters. They're crossing over to make a game called Minna black slash Ghostbusters echo, echo, terrestrial invasion. The artwork on this. Looks kind of cool. It's kind of anime ish. Kitty, looking type of artwork the game is these eco terrestrial are invading earth. And it's taking it's more than either black or Ghostbusters can handle on their own. So they're teaming up to take out these invaders. They also plan on having a couple of standalone expansions coming from this also probably with the Minna black and Ghostbusters by themselves. So on your ghostbuster team. You're gonna have Bank men Spangler stands and said more the Minna black team is going to have agent j agent k agent L and said, those are the ones that we know of right now, they the standalone that are coming following auditees may add other characters, but those are probably there arguably the most popular character from each one of those licenses your men in black slash Ghostbusters echo, terrestrial invasion is slated to come out in late twenty nineteen. So you gotta ways to wait for this. But the follow on standalone expansions should be coming out shortly after those okay my action figure collectors. This is a extra figure. I didn't know if I'd ever see but Hasbro is putting out the six armed Spiderman. This comes from the story where expire man was trying to cure himself from having the spider powers. Did he must calculator wrong? Because it just increased his spider powers it caused him to grow additional arms. This six armed Spiderman is going to be a six inch action figures coming out early in twenty nineteen dark horse comics lately has lost a lot of their licenses. They I mean, they've lost Star Wars. They lost buffet a vampire slayer they lost firefly. They're still they're saying they're still doing well. But they did just make a huge sell of a lot of their stock in holdings. CEO and founder, Mike Richardson has said that he's doing this because they're gonna make a big push into films. They want to have their own funded films. I mean, we've seen how well marvel has done funding their own films having their own film studio darkhorse has a lot of great titles. That would translate great film. Also. It's always the problem of getting these films funded. So now, they have an inhouse film funding part of the business should make it easier. So I'm hoping that microchip knows what he's doing with this. And I hope darkhorse starts putting out some big blockbuster movies. And hopefully, the other comics publishers will start following suit and making their own funded films. K last story I have for you today. I thought this was really really interesting. If you've read heroes in crisis from DC comics, where they it was kind of a sanctuary for all these superheroes. And and villains who were having problems dealing with all the violence and everything else in their life. They were sent there as a for kind of therapy. Somebody found out about this place in came in and basically killed everybody that was at this sanctuary. The main culprits. Were Harley Quinn and booster gold. This sanctuary was run by the DC's. Big trinity of Batman wonder woman in superman, they are coming here to investigate what's going on. And of course, you know, it all the size point toward Harley and booster gold. The trinity tracked down Harley they're going to try to bring her in and question her. This is the part is interesting Harley walked through the trinity like they were nothing. She grabbed wonder woman's LASSO use it all Batman and found out the Batman using the LASSO found out he had a piece of kryptonite on him. She grad that piece of kryptonite and used it to get past superman. And then later on in one of the panels superman even mentions it, you know, Harley Quinn is as good if not better than even new Batman men didn't want admit it. He's got a big ego. But yeah, I mean, she just waltzed through the trio that three arguably strongest characters in the DC universe. Harley Quinn, just cake walked right through them and got away. So everybody who was always wondering why Harley was part of suicide squad. You know, how she could survive a little with joker all this time and all the violence if going on she can hold her own Harley Quinn. She is a top notch gymnast, obviously, she was a psychiatrist so she's not an idiot. She can think her way through a lot of these things and strategically and physically she just bested the three top characters in the DC universe. So if you ever you want to argue about who's the best fighter in DC. You can make a strong case for Harley. Now as always thank you guys for watching the video mash that bell econ- to be notified every time. I upload a new video for my auditory. Only friends subscribed to me on your favorite podcast platform. I will see you guys next week with more nerdy news later nerds. Pain that you. You play. In an all each.

Menopause and Divorce
"Hello, everybody is menopause Taylor really is say of menopause world today. I like to discuss everything about the depaz e cluding the socialist sets. And sometimes we get so caught up in all the physical stuff that we forget about some of the social things. And what are things that I wanna talk about. It's menopause and divorce. I know not fun topic. Everybody knows someone who's got divorce or is getting a divorce thinking about getting worse. But that's just not the same as knowing the facts about divorce, and I want to talk about. Some of the facts about Minna pause and divorce the two together. That's the key here. Everything in my world is about menopause. I live eat, drink sleep, minerals. I look at everything from the perspective of minimum. So we're gonna look at the force from the perspective of menopause. So. Do you know what the most common cause of divorce is at the time of menopause? I mean, what would you think? What do you think it's the man having a midlife crisis and wanting a younger woman. Do you think it's the fact the guy cannot deal with the woman's Nitta pause and all her symptoms emotional issues and disinterested sex? Or do you think it's because of the menopausal woman's depression, or do you think it's the menopausal woman's decision just to be independent or do you think it's sexual infidelity by the husband? I mean, what do you think it is? What do you think the may cost the most common cause divorces at minimum pots eighty? I'm beans. What is the prize you discover that it's the menopausal woman's decision to become independent. It is. I mean, does that shock you? Most people say, oh my God, I had no idea. Most people think it's a crisis for the guy. They think it's anything, but the one they most people say, it's not that it is that one that's the most common. So I always start with the statistics. I always start the basics. Really. If you look at the statistics on divorce, divorce is actually becoming less common for young adults for young people. Divorce is becoming less common. I think that's because we're getting married later in life. I mean, you know, they're not getting married when they're in their early twenties anymore. They're usually getting married them, mid thirties. So it's becoming less common. But the opposite is true for people over the age of fifty. So why that is. You know, there's even a name for divorce over the age of fifty. It's called great voice. That awful grey divorce f for great divorce. The divorce rate has doubled since nineteen ninety. Yeah, nineteen. Ninety five at a one thousand people over the age of fifty. Got divorce. And now in will actually two thousand fifteen as of two thousand fifteen ten out of one thousand people over fifty, give divorce and for people over the age of sixty five divorce rates have tripled since nineteen ninety. I mean, isn't that shocking. I don't know. There's something about seeking people being more stable or more committed as they get older. So I think most of us they, well, if we get through the earlier of marriage, the marriage spinner been going on for a good, ten, twenty years. We don't say much in terms of divorce the con- but the truth is if the ends
Dr. Drew Midday Live with Mike Catherwood
Eating crickets may benefit your gut health, scientists say
"Eating crickets can be, great for your gut according to a new clinical did. You know. This. I read the article read the art critic have you ever eaten them now I hear they're great source of protein yeah if well, yeah sorta catch him. Yeah and I I I used to do a daytime talk, show called Minna, from Mars wounded from Venus ago and people brought in you know we've the insects you eat and when they cook them the. Only, complaint I had as image so much garlic it was ridiculous. That was the worst part because, you don't like garlic, do You like garlic but it was actually overwhelming too much, and so I mean what is cricket taste like like. Can potato chip. Chicken yeah yeah chicken yeah well this new study shows. That Consuming crickets can. Help support the growth of beneficial gut bacteria and then eating crickets is not only safe at high doses but may also reduce inflammation in the body and who doesn't want to reduce inflammation. So what they're talking about. Is this theory. Of leptin the selective theory that the certain proteins of loosen the bonds between the cells. In your gut and allowing lipopolysaccharide activate your immune system I was thinking of you. I was talking I? Was. Talking to a guy? That sort of advocates. That. Theory very aggressively and you? If you remove electon shimmer diet might. Help, some, of those, things you're dealing with is it Dr gunnery yeah you ever tried that I have his book yeah. Have you tried his thing I try to briefly to help now he he he again but. Maybe, I wasn't even one of the, reactions I had in in thinking listening. To his thing everything, was just so you know? There was a story whenever. The, narrative, biology, maybe. Maybe, not yeah because you know Endorsed by like Gwyneth. Paltrow and all these ideas. Are interesting and. He's a he's a real deal dude but he's a surgeon I don't think like biologists necessarily and it's you know when you have just so kinds of explanations it may. Be something totally different? Than. He may be onto? Something it doesn't mean. The. The the actual interventions are? Wrong it just means the explanations that. Might, be, an overstatement, of something I mean ultimately all you do know is when you lose fat when you lose central. Fat you'd have less and less inflammation we know that's for sure true right so maybe it's. All, that maybe maybe The is appears to endorse a ban on cat calling despite some. Huge free, speech, concerns this in France cat calling is now a, crime punishable by fines of, up to seven hundred and fifty. Euros for thousand dollars and. This, is. That really the problem there in France Body odor like.
Why do so many women pretend that menopause doesn't exist
"It may sound ridiculous that something as common as Minna pas is something that people deny, but it's really the truth. You would be surprised at the number of women who are incomplete denial about menopause, and you'd be even more surprised at their level of. Denial. They don't just denied. It happens day denied that it will ever happen to them. And sometimes they even deny while it's happening to them. I mean, they have their head stuck in the sand. You know, I give seminars, admit applause, on. I mean, seminars and videos on menopause. And when I'm giving a seminar video live and people can see me and I'm talking about denial of Minna pas. I have a beagle pile of sand and I have a Barbie doll and I literally take the Barbie doll. I suffer head way down in the city because it's that visual of this is literally how it is for women. I mean, it's bad enough that society doesn't recognize the existence of menopause, but I'm talking about the berry women themselves who are living through it symptom by symptom day in and day out. They are in denial. So despite the absolutely obvious nature of menopause, there's actually a great deal of denial, but every single aspect of it with. Regarded as more of a curse than a bonus of longevity and there's this avalanche of shame dread and fear that fuels their denial. I find it really shocking how much women will avoid doing anything that associates them with men walls. You know, there's a book by Gail Sheehy and she wrote a book called the silent passage, and it's all about menopause. And when she got her book years ago, the nineteen eighties, I think she approached Oprah, talk about Minna pause on her show and the producer of Oprah informed her that it was easier to get guests to talk about murdering their spouses than about their menopause. That tells you something about this topic and how how, how much discomfort it creates. So we're gonna cop about the denial of undeniable in a pause. One thing I've learned about the denial of menopause is that it's very commonly linked with desperation. About information on posit. I seen this all sorts of ways. One of the things that happens to me over and over again is that all go to some fancy shindig gathering where everybody's just to the nines and you know there's something about black, tie that make women really put themselves in the sexiest attire they can find. So no matter what her age woman will wear revealing garment to a black tie. You know, plunging necklines really high high heels, slit skirts. All kinds of things met missing backs to dresses. These women are beautiful, but I had this very handle mind. I'm always looking at things thinking about the significance of them, and I like to study social behavior. And when I see that. In an older woman. Yells look at my sexy dress, but it's usually camouflage for not doing very sexy. And so inevitably, what happens to me at these events? And I mean, equa single time I go to like this is habits. I need some new person and when we start talking and getting to know each other and they asked me what I do. I'll say what l. menopause expert teacher amendment was, oh my gosh. Here's this. Kind of Gary subtle look. Trying to hide their reaction. But really they have this very subtle of the kinda says, oh my God, I, the jackpot, edgy kind of person, lipid slips and she picked McCue can tell. She's thinking, oh my God, this is great, but I've got to keep it to myself. I can't let anyone know how wonderful happy I am about meeting this minimum experts. So act of desperation. She swiftly Crips are. Looks whoever's what does will be right back and pulls me off to the latest room. It's like kidnapped and they always want to quick to quickly tell them what to do for menopause and they say they're desperate, and you know, menopausal kind of thing that you could quickly tell someone about. It's not the kind of thing where there's a quick fix. So when I get kidnapped and taken to the ladies, your show. I just set up a date at a later time and make it so that I have the opportunity to spend real quality time with the woman and teacher what she needs to know. 'cause you know, that's what we all serve. That's what this whole education is about. But the end of one of those evenings, I've got five or six t date. Five or six dates with women who really, really are just interested in talking about minimums. So it's a topic that involves both desperation end denial. And that seems odd to me because you would think that if something communist menopause is going to affect every woman on the planet, you'd think we'd get over it and we stop having this Cincinnati. I'll keep us from getting the education need or even talking about this.
