"99 of the 100 shares trading in the borsa Istanbul 100. That's the main Turkish index. We saw all 99 up some 90 of them were up more than 9% very close to that 10% trading limit biggest rise since 2008. But look, ultimately, investors are going to be parsing the economic story. They're not necessarily going to be looking at some of these short term factors in the Turkish stock market. Barrel ackman are reporter and Ankara has a great piece out about the pressure that some of the rebuilding effort could really put on the Turkish government. New data came out yesterday, showing a $1.7 billion deficit very much in check, but the scale of this rebuilding effort really could put strain on the government's finances. And that's part of where we go after these immediate reactions sort of play out in markets. And someone we've heard from the Egyptian energy minister mapping out the country's ambitions in regards to a regional LNG hub. I mean, this is a country which needs transformation and income. I soon can this materialize. Well, we've got to wait till 2025. That's the word from Tarek Al Mola is the energy minister, Bloomberg spoke to him yesterday. He wants to increase LNG exports by some 40%. And what's interesting about Egypt's issues is it has the capacity to turn natural gas into LNG. Remember, that's the kind of thing limiting some of the exports coming from the United States say. And so what Al Mola is talking about is bringing more pipe natural gas in from Israel and also expanding production of natural gas in Egypt. And that's kind of the key factor here. He mentioned that various international oil companies, the likes of Exxon, shell, BP, all very interested in investing in Egypt. But if you look around at the economic circumstances, the devaluation of the pound and all the issues that Egypt is facing, do these IOCs actually put their money into the country at this moment. If this plan succeeds, though, a 40% expansion would make Egypt one of the top ten exporters of LNG around the world. I mean, yeah, 12 months forwards on Egyptian pound just around 36. Now the country and at least three other golf countries may be considered for membership in the bricks consortium this year. One of the group's officials has at least been telling Bloomberg. This would be quite a major step, wouldn't it? Yeah, it would be very interesting because it would put this group of emerging markets together in a way that they may not have had already. So the country's from our region that are expressed some interest in joining in addition to Egypt also includes Saudi Arabia, the UAE Bahrain and Iran, and they, according to South Africa's ambassador to this block, will be considered for membership this year. But the concerns from the other nations that are already in the block, Brazil, Russia, India, and South Africa is that China could wield a lot more influence if it starts diluting how many members are in the block already China's economy more than twice the size of the remaining countries economy. Also that a concern for the international community that this block could begin to exert more power whereas advanced economies have really dominated a lot of global diplomacy, whether that's at the UN, the IMF, the World Bank and the like. We're going to watch very closely for how these discussions go. They'll likely play out in the next couple of months because there's a big summit in August where this could be considered more formally. Simone, thank you very much, Simone, foxman.

Before the break, we heard John Cassidy say that a reliable indicator is employment and so far so good. Very big economic development today with a very strong jobs report. Employers added 372,000 jobs in June, the unemployment rate hovering still 3.6% as the fed focuses on taming inflation. The unemployment rate still hovering near 50 year lows. Wages up 5.2% from a year ago, and look, you got 372 K new jobs. This continues. But the conflicting sign here is you have the GDP going down. You have the supply chain problems. You have inflation we just discussed. Are we headed for a recession? One of the hallmarks of a recession would be low employment demand, but that's absolutely not what we're seeing. Ronnie Mola is a senior data reporter at vox's recode and author of the recent article how to make sense of the very weird job market. We're seeing lots of people quitting. We're seeing very few layoffs and we're seeing lots of job openings. There has been debate over the so called great resignation. It's true. A lot of people did leave the workforce retiring early. A lot of women who couldn't get child care and so forth. But it wasn't more of a great reshuffling. Yeah, I mean, people aren't just leaving their jobs in not working at all. They're leaving their jobs for what they perceive as better jobs, jobs that pay better. Jobs with sort of immeasurable stuff like better work life balance and flexibility and they can kind of get more of what they want. I don't want to overstate worker power. Obviously, it's the employer who's still in power. But more so than in recent history, employees have a little bit of leverage. Yeah, I just wondered whether the great resignation was kind of a grudge phrase. Invented by people who are offering jobs that just weren't very good. That's definitely a fair criticism of beloved million open jobs. A lot of those are jobs that people don't want. That said, wages have been going up across the board. On average, 5% across the private sector in June compared to a year earlier. That's a big jump. Part of that is there's such a demand for workers that in some of the crappiest jobs out there, the lowest paying jobs out there, those companies are having to offer a lot more money. But they're also continuing to offer things like retention, bonuses, signing bonuses. And that's not just isolated to the tech sector where we're used to these sort of perks. That's happening in retail that's happening, you know, manufacturing and warehouses. And that's something that there would be no need to offer if they were having an easy time finding workers. But getting back to the money issue, we've been hearing that wages are falling. So we know in June, it went up 5% compared to the year before, but when you factor in how much the cost of goods has gone up, it's actually gone down 3.6%. So inflation is rising faster than wages, which are already rising pretty fast inflation is just rising faster. To summarize on the inflation issue. So wages up 5% inflation of almost 9%, then that means wages down almost 4%. The bureau of labor statistics says that wages went up 5%. So from a $100 an hour to a $105 an hour. But when they put it in like 1984 or $1982, it actually went down. So they do the calculation based on the consumer price index. So in real dollars, spending power, it went down 3.6%. And what is the consumer price index measure? It is a basket of goods across the whole economy. It ranges from just how much it costs for a T-shirt to how much it costs for gas. And it takes a basket of goods across the economy and says, last year with a $100, you could get this much stuff and this year you could get this much stuff and you could get a lot less with that because the prices have gone up so much. And one thing I noted in the article was that while demand is down in certain parts of the economy surely, the companies that are hiring are making the calculation that, hey, we can make more money if we had people to work here. We could have sold more sandwiches if I had another person working at the deli. So they're making this calculation and saying, like, there's still money to be had. And we could make more money, but we need more employees. So let's say there is a recession as defined by the economic powers that be. Could the job market protect us from a faltering economy? They could help with the depth of the recession. Obviously, if people stop spending, if businesses aren't bringing in enough money, they will have to lay off people if people are spending less than we would expect higher unemployment. That hasn't happened yet. That there is so many open jobs right now that everyone is hiring leads you to believe that at least demand for products that these companies are selling has not decreased enough yet. What do you think of the coverage of the job market? Do you think we're getting a fairly clear picture of a muddled situation or not? There's just so many inputs here and so many different things going on that it's not just one story. It's not just about people at the low end and retail jobs quitting. It's also people in high-tech who are quitting. There is this tendency to sort of have these very contrary and hot takes, you know, like everything you thought you knew about X is wrong and while sometimes that's valid, oftentimes I see that headline and then you read it and you're like, oh, you mean this thing is slightly different or it wasn't completely true or it wasn't the case in all instances, but generally still stands, you know, I see why that's an attractive thing, but sometimes the great resignation is just sort of chugging along. Ronnie, thank you very much. It was a pleasure. Ronnie Mola is a senior data reporter at fox's recode and author of the recent article how to make sense of the very weird job markets. More than 70 5% of Americans drive to work. According to a global consumer survey conducted by the polling forms statistic, but even those of us who don't own a car have heard about the rise in gas prices. The average price for a gallon of gas jumped more than 40% in the last year, that's according to triple-A, those rising fuel prices are causing a ripple effect across the U.S. economy. Prices jump more than ten cents in the last 24 hours on average, Californians are now paying $5 and 57 cents for a gallon of regular gas. Here in your county, we're paying $4 and 98 cents a gallon. That's the average. But prices are over $5 at some stations. In July, gas prices finally began to fall, but the frustration with inflation in the rising cost of living around the country hasn't caught up as Americans look for someone to blame. In

"That's all well and good. You've got the shifting baseline, but if fish are getting smaller, then she's not studying the fish getting smaller, but yeah. Well, I get it. It's weird and bad. Yeah. And so is that what, again, I don't care. I don't really like fish that much. They smell weird. I don't like the taste of them. I know other things eat them, but I don't care about those things either. So one of the most interesting ones was this Danish researcher. His names are Anders are papa Mola, he spent half a century studying barn swallows. This is like the Japanese guy. Remember that Japanese biologist and his entire thing was studying the anus of these glowing jellyfish. Then he would study that for ten years and they'd be like, oh, this one's anus is big. And he would study that for another 5 years. And that was like his entire thing. He studied jellyfish anuses for 60 years. This guy studies barn swallows, and he grew up in this kind of flat farmland of Denmark's north of jutland region. He's now 67 years old. And the region hasn't really changed at all since he was a kid growing up there. But there was a nagging suspicion that something had gone wrong when he returned, like years later after he had his career and everything. He goes back. Those barns swallows that he loved studying. They have a huge appetite, like they have breeding pairs, and they devour a million insects over a course of a season, just two of those birds. And as many as 50 or 60 pairs of these swallow birds were found on each farm in this area in Denmark. And he remembers scores of beetles and the hay bales and bumblebees everywhere and all these birds just eating everything. But when he returned a few years ago, actually it was in the 1990s he went back. He noticed that the insects seem to be disappearing. So through the 80s and 90s, it didn't really require biologists like mala to notice the decline. Like most people could tell there was just less insects around and it was so obvious like he didn't really need any measurements. But he wanted to know, so he came up with this ingenious experiment. He did this in 1996..

"Points. You're making their james now. First off the cannon version of lara croft absolutely can go through the entire situation and go through these harrowing experiences and survive with just one life. Is this video game physics. james. I'm not the one playing lara croft in this battle. It's the cannon version who did do all the things who does know all the languages who is considerably a genius level. I q and absolutely could accomplish all these intellectual feats indiana jones done without question. A couple of things to talk about here. That you brought up is indiana jones. When he fights one of the things. I noticed a certain pattern that developed watching every indiana jones fight is that he fights in an effort to run away a heck of a lot. He doesn't fight and then stand over people and then get his victories. He's often fighting people away from himself so he can try to escape. That's not going to work in a who would win battle. You talk about motivations. He's much more about self preservation. Most of the time then actually getting over on his enemy. The other thing is that you brought up a great example. I didn't think about of how it works together until you mentioned it. But he was mind controlled in the temple of doom movie. He turned into a bad guy. Through this ancient. You a mystical mind control. So what's stopping the lara croft. Fear gas that. I mentioned in my point number one from overtaking him and just frankly causing him to be not a threat anymore at least for two minutes or that she could dispatch him or he just runs away so first of all he's usually in the middle of large armies or groups of people infiltrating places. Where then they you know. He's got to do something and they come after him. And instead of standing taking on full armies he fights his way out. That's the thing he does number two. Does laura croft have the same stuff on hand that was used against indiana jones and temple. The do maybe she does. I'm just asking i'm asking. Does she have the fear gas. She has it in the games right. She does not have those mccreevy and nor does she have the ability to tie down for a long time and then the gas down. It's up in the air. I ramming points from ray. Hurt two points for me. We're now at the turning point. This is where you have to tell us who you think is heading the battle and what the other side has to do to pull out the victory. I want you to listen closely. Because this is the sound of the almighty raise train to tooting. Its way back into the fight. Because ray brought up some excellent points about laura's training and to her abilities and your point james largely rested on assuming that she couldn't get out of the same situations as indiana jones purely because she wasn't in the situations and then video game respond logic as rape pointed out at ultimately is in the hands of the player but in this case the player is lara. Croft who has all of these capabilities. The intelligence the skill the training to survive in a lot of ways. Do i think that she would stand in the middle of a nazi army or in the middle of thuggish temple and try and take on everybody at once. No i think she would use the same kind of intellectual acumen as indiana jones to fight who she needs to to get away ultimately to get over at the end that the point about hunting as you pointed pointed out largely immaterial. A lot of people hunt at the guy who owns jimmy. Johns is a big game. Hunter doesn't do anything for me james. So it's mola ram not mola ram so you played by the great actor Puri he played. Mola ram in indiana jones and the temple of doom. Wait till you hear how james. I've been pronouncing laura this entire time. Anyway as we get back to the point about fear gas and and mind control one fear gas one form of mind control can be comparable to the next if we assume that. Lara croft's mind control. Gas is on the level of something. Let's say like scarecrows. Out of the dc universe or the hypnotic effects that you're getting from mola ram in indiana jones and the temple of doom than at least for a very short period of time typically video game logic. You're talking about. Israeli pointed out two minutes of confusion for dr jones. Is that enough to take him out of his logical place for her to get one over. Possibly as you bring up captain kirk fighting abilities. It's a lot of fists used first and then logic applied later for those listening. See the episode where he fights gorn. That will tell you everything you need to know about. Captain kirk fighting now. I won't say that the the brawler logic is all. There is the indiana jones. James pointed out. He does have multidisciplinary training. And that's true. He is a soldier. He has marksmanship. He has all these things and he is in peak physical condition if we are assuming in both cases you are choosing them at their absolute peak. So ray you calling him a broken down. Old man doesn't track if we're saying. His physique is the same as it is in raiders of lost ark versus the alien one that nobody liked at the end so for saying that he's thirty five to forty in the best shape of his life having survived all kinds of things including world war one with mustard gas. And all of that. We know that he's a survivor. We know that he's smart. We know that he can get a lot of things done and in high pressure situations his mind is sharp as a tack that can also be said of lara. Croft who you pointed out survived things that only buster. Keaton has survived taking an avalanche to the dome and not reacting. But i will say the first in the first round james had a bit of an edge based on the sheer knowledge and breadth of the abilities and materials possessed by indiana jones so he was slightly ahead and now your neck and neck going into this final round because his ray pointed out. Laura's no slouch. It's not someone playing the video game on easy it someone with complete mastery. Perhaps that's ray. He talks a lot about. Is video game prowess.

How Do Taxes Work for Remote Employees? It's Complicated.
"Is april fifteenth tax day. Except it's not the. Irs has extended as yours deadline to file and people like myself now have until may seventeenth to get those forms in but if you're one of the millions of employees who work remotely in the last year you may find some surprise taxes you haven't heard about yet. Luckily my colleague. ronnie. Mola is here to explain ronnie. Hey peter you know used to sit next to each other day after day after day and then the pandemic came and you went away to an undisclosed location somewhere north of new york city as it going up there colder than where you are but pretty good. It's colder and are your taxes any different because you because you live upstate. So for me. It's not that different Because i used to live in brooklyn. Now i've moved upstate within the same state so it's just a matter of you know just paying taxes where i live but to another state. Say like texas or tennessee. You might be a different situation. Why is up. Your taxes are generally based on where you're physically doing the work like where you're sitting in sweatpants and typing on your computer except in the case of these convenience role states which were these states that say hey we're gonna tax you based on where your job is located which kind of just like a whole wrench into how this normally works. So the convenience will states are states like new york arkansas connecticut. There's a they're seven of them and convenience rule states say that they're going to tax you based on where your office is where your job has an office not based on where you're physically working So that's obviously a big deal in the pandemic when a lot of people are no longer working Where their offices and they might be in a completely different state okay. I'm half following. So let's say you had moved to texas along with everyone else in technology. What would happen to your taxes for your current job at vox which is based in new york city since if i had moved to texas a state that has no income tax and it sounds like that's gonna be awesome because i'm going to get to keep more of my money because new york where my job has. An office is a convenience rule state. I actually still have to pay new york income tax. If my job had an office in another state say like tennessee or florida or any of the other non convenience role states i would pay taxes based on where i'm living in that case it would be texas.
Congress gets involved with GameStop and Robinhood
"Story has been crazy but is it all legal whether it's the flurry of retail traders drug stock prices or the hedge funds and partner companies trying to maintain their dominance wall street is entering some new territory and the rules. Aren't really clear here to explain. Why congress is actually starting to involve is recruits. Ronnie mola sherani. Hey daddy so catch me up on game stop so we talked here on the show about retail traders mobilizing on read. It obviously A key part of the internet to buy hundred game. Stop stock right. And then there's this. Hedge fund called melvin capital but hedge for the general were shorting the stock and they lost all this money. What happened since we last talked about game. Stop so basically robin hood. This commission free app that everyone's been using to buy all these memes stocks like games up. Amc announced that it was actually going to restrict trading on certain stocks including game. Stop rate as all. These people were making a lot of money in the stock price was super high. And as a result everyone got really upset especially these retail investors. A lot of people joined this class action lawsuit saying that robinhood manipulated the market by restricting trades and caused them to lose a lot of money. Sort of this. This platform has become Now being dogged by allegations as it's an tank for one side or another. So why would robin and do this. Why would they yup. They're supposed to just facilitate trades and not care whether game stock goes up or down. Don't they make money on volume so they want more activity. But why would robinhood care if some hedge funds were taking a hit. So i don't think robin hood did care that hedge funds retaining hit. There's a lot of confusion about this but basically it comes down to this plumbing about how the market works and how trades are actually executed that you would never really need to know but essentially because all of these people were investing in these really volatile stocks stocks whose prices go up and down. Robinhood has to keep a certain amount of money. These deposits with clearing houses that are based on how volatile a stock is toronto. Keep some money. Just in case stuff goes race yes essentially and because so. Many people were trading in these really volatile stocks. They had to keep a lot more money. Something like tenfold. What they're used to. And they just didn't have the money for so they actually had to get an infusion of cash rely on a few of their investors to give them a billion plus dollars in order that they could keep letting people trade came out said that we didn't want to stop anyone from trading. Anything this has nothing to do with pets funds or anything. This was just a. We didn't have enough money to clear. These deposits okay so for all the conspiracy theories that have been going on about robin hood somehow being on the take or something like that. You're saying the explanation is actually more boring. It's just has to do with the way that complex financial from his actions like this happened right. And i mean it doesn't help that the way that robin hood makes money is it actually has this other company called citadel securities actually executed trades. And they pay robin hood and they make money because they sell the stocks for a little bit more than they buy them for. They make a few pennies on each trade. And then the guy who owns citadel it all securities also owns a hedge fund called citadel which helps bail out melvin capital which was short and game. Stop okay so there's some associations between between Robin hood and the people who were shorting stock. Yes but they're saying this had nothing to do with the decision they made. That was simply because the deposit requirements for too big sure. Sure okay so now what happens now. I mean so. We're starting to see some action in washington about this. Obviously this politically appealing to a lot of people because you can run against wall street running in silicon valley run against the rich people like. Tell me what we can expect. Obviously there's a lot going on dc but the seems like something that could have some. Bipartisan outrage to it yeah you saw lawmakers on both sides of the tweeting and calling for hearings. There's definitely going to be multiple hearings in congress about what happened. Precisely lawmakers are pretty happy to find any reason to call into question. What's going on wall street. And why a lot of this seems very unfair conservative. Republicans like ted cruz want some answers. Progressive democrats warn zero cossio. Cortez are making a big deal about this. Warren obviously has a background in financial regulation. Tell me tell me what she's thinking. About what congress should do about this just so we get a flavor of the types of things being talked about washington. Yeah she's saying there needs to be an sec investigation. The sec needs to do their job. Make sure there's more transparency in financial markets. Make sure it's not rigged. Make sure there's no manipulation so she's sort of just calling for them to figure out what's going on. Are they doing anything about this yet. So the sec side. It's monitoring the situation. It's also going to look into whether any investors were disadvantaged because they weren't allowed to buy these certain securities It's also important to know the sec's in transition right now. They have an acting chair but they're waiting for their nominee Gary gansler to actually be confirmed. But in the meantime yeah. You're you're just gonna see the sec monitoring the situation. They makes me wonder. How does robin feel about sort of these allegations or conspiracy. Theories robert is now being a little bit more open about what happened and they were in the initial kind of crisis mode. Yeah i mean. They've lifted some of the limits that they had on securities. You could now by game stop again if you buy a shares of amc. They're also going on the sort of like pr offensive. Where they're saying exactly what happened. The they wanna tell you all about clearing houses they want to tell you about the deposits the volatility. You know how how they had to spend so much money this time. So like even the vlad ten of went on clubhouse yesterday with your skin kind of tried to explain exactly what happened. you know. And they're just trying to say this wasn't some sort of giant wall street cabal. This was a really boring thing that had to do with deposit requirements.

It gets in your head sometimes, you know, like, Oh, no, no, I got to say this guy's name again. Oh, That's how hard it is. A hard name was that it was at the 54 51 game. Is that what that was like? A watch? Yeah, he had a monster game. Sampson. Yeah, He's the starting outside linebacker now instead of Leonard Floyd, Good player, so So what you gonna do is he's not gonna go into the broadcast booth again. I've heard one to go into coaching, right chasing wooden. Who would Dallas or with Jon Gruden hired? I don't know. I don't know. He's a good guy, Lester. I mean, yes. Your first ballot Hall of Famer. You might be his knees up there, right? And incredible. Yeah. He's up there in every category ever. Good player, personal stuff. We could go into broadcasting. I mean, why wouldn't put him on Monday night football? By the way, Do you hear that Philip Rivers is is in the mix. Now, with Monday night football. Guy. Nick Hardwick told us that a few years ago we had him on last week when you have retired. So I don't know. If he can do any coach high school football on Friday night they could do but the night football. I guess he could. Yeah. So hard you could figure out you know, I just I'll tell you this. If I had to choose between who I think is gonna be more successful. Dad Gum it Philip Rivers or order breeze. I think I take rivers. Don't know Bree's gonna be What does he do in the the makeup artist comes in before the game movie Mola Mola pulls an Oprah Let that just let that go and let me fix this jury got some smudge when?

Uh oh, man, that Z Stella deal is done, Tommy. Let's steady. Let's have a stellar toes. Yeah, that's a father Paul's free Your deal pending physical. He's a joke. Is that what it is? Three years? But that is surprising that with Alex Pavel with John and with the longest that, uh, that they've given out on the farm hands, too, And so Tommy gets a ton of those delegates. A three. I mean, I like the guy, but wow, Maybe the A's were in the mix, too. We needed. Imagine that negotiation I may have been in Billy with billion David forced wanted back after he turned you did well with them last year. And I lost market. Simeon. I'm He's not short stuff, but he can play third. God is not strike out. Amazing, struck out 12 times all last year. Hail brain and belted some weekend Syriza where each struck out more. Yeah, that lately he kind of covered that up. Remember a few weekends, but he had a he had a couple of golden sombreros stacked up, so this kind of put the ball in play. Yes, He's just gotten better. Better Remember with the Cubs? He was okay. He was gonna be utility guy. And then whenever the Angels had a great first half that got hurt, And then last year, they came over the A's. He's just a nice guy to have on your team. He was a scrapper. Like you said he doesn't strike out makes contact and play a couple of them in positions. He's perfect for what the the Giants are looking for. He won't be in against lefties. Michael play a lot against right handers is Angel Years last to me last year, Nobody played a full year because it was a 60 game season, but in 2019 minutes, 16 Jax Yeah. And 292, ABC 21 plate appearances. 80 games. He played half the year and he had 16. I don't know many all right here, but He could hit a mine. She'll give you a little power. So how do they divvy up playing time with? Oh, Willer and Donovan Solano. I wonder if they're half thinking about We're still gonna have that D h in the International league this year. Yeah, I better They're just thinking eventually, they're gonna come to a Agreement, even though right now it's you know, they're they're both, you know, using it as leverage, but I gotta think they're gonna do it. It just makes too much sense, doesn't it? Yeah, I think so. I think it's just a negotiating. They don't want to tie the union that they want the universal th. Obviously, it's another Theater and hitters make a lot of money, so they're not going to say no. But then it's tied to the post season the expanded postseason we saw last year, so It's a negotiation we're gonna go to say yes to that. If it's yes to that, too will say yes to that. And then we want more money for that. So But I gotta think that Farhaan and Scott are partly thinking that How good is Tommy? Let Stella defensively she could just okay, so he's not great. South. Solano was okay, We're Flores said some bad moments, but, um I mean, they wanted to keep both those guys in the lineup a lot last year, Flora's and Solano and you got Estella in there. I don't know if they're all three Bien. As you got, you know, right handed hitting component there but will be in a little bit a lot. You guys great back control. I mean, he's just does not swing and miss impressive one like you talked about that 2019 year, and it's an outlier, but Remember that year because he had just come over from the Cubs in 321 plate appearances at 16 home runs and if I'm not wrong, he got injured wasn't a broken leg and there was a foul ball or some like that, maybe hit off himself. Oh, yeah, right before the all Star game. He was He was picked as an all star, but he never got a watch. Yeah, it was a nostril Hair. 2019 was picked as it all started One time. All star. Yeah. 16 World Series champion with the Cubbies. Yeah. Yeah, and he got He got hurt. I believe right before the All Star game like if it wasn't the game before. It was like two games before. And I think you felt the ball off himself and was picked as an all star didn't play in the game. And then I think you might have missed most of the second half, if not all of it. But yeah, he was gonna get to you that year. I'm watching. I love this MLB dot Come film room just swing after swing. He just has a really controlled swing, but he throws the bad head when he recognizes the balls in the strike zone. He's not £180.5 11 but least of all a long way. So we'll see how the ballpark plays this year. That's good signing. We'll just see how much they They gave him. You know if there's any incentives built into playing time, but, yeah, Father, John Paul Marosi, saying a three year deal on the physical And then other other big deal we talked about earlier on in the show, Marcus Simeon leaves the A's. It was great on and off the field. I know you want to stay. We had him on the patio. A couple of times in the ace played the Giants He loved being in the Barry went to Cal..

Penguin Random House to Buy Simon & Schuster
"We now have a two point two billion dollar deal which i guess by the standards of emanate manet transactions is quite small but by the standards of book publishing. It's absolutely enormous webuye. Random penguin or penguins house. I never know which one those two. I prefer which is owned by this. Massive german publishing house called bertelsmann is going to buy or his said they wanted has agreed to by simon and schuster which is the third-biggest publisher in america. Four point two billion dollars and according to a statement from news cool which. I don't know if i take this at face value. But i haven't seen anyone say that it's not true. This will create a publishing house with seventy percent of all literary fiction. They basically have seventy percent of all these novels in america and they have about a third of the entire book market. If this this looks to me like a monopoly and it looks to me like bertelsmann's trying to create a monopoly and does anyone disagree. And if they are. Shouldn't this be looked. I don't agree. I think this could be very bad for book publishing in general especially for authors. There's one bless house to compete for authors and titles so that means lower advances that means bigger titles. There's already all this consolidation in the book business and there's a tendency now the trend. Is you know big blockbuster. Titles simon and shuster made a lot of money this year because of they they had the john bolton book and the mary trump book penguin random house made a lot of money this year because they had the obama book and the other obama book and so the consolidation isn't really good news for people care about you know interesting books getting published. It's just more bad news and it is a monopoly but at the same time i sent around this piece of franklin four wrote in the atlantic. About how this is actually not about book publishing per se or book publishing companies but is actually about amazon because while this combined company would have a third of the book publishing market amazon has about half of book publishing distribution. So it's like maybe a counterweight to that. I don't know how convinced are very like amazon's position in book. Sales is clearly monopolistic. And as if you remember back a million years to the episode. We talked about when they go into a big fight with has shed You know they basically stopped shipping shit bugs and they will mock is unavailable in this kind of thing in this big fight. They are not afraid to play t when it comes to fighting with book. Publishers and it is color ripley possible. I suppose that a combined penguin random house and simon and schuster is going to be so big that they will be able to stand up to amazon's bullying a little bit about better. And i kind of by that but everything else that frank wrote in that piece is just like. Oh my god. You're such a fogy. And he was like. I'm plus he was like we need to do something about this amazon monopoly without ever saying what it is that we need to do is very hard to break up that monopoly at this point. Is you know full of us trying to like bookshop to amazon. Like it's not going to move the needle verify thousand just has that monopoly that monopoly incidentally is so entrenched in people's minds. The people simply assume that amazon has a monopoly everywhere else as well and it doesn't and this is one of the weird things about amazon. Is that because his daunted is a bookstore and because it has such a powerful position in books every time it makes an announcement like it did last week saying oh we're moving into pharmaceuticals and prescriptions. Oh my it's going to have napoli in prescription. Of course it's not gonna have a monopoly and prescriptions. Books are unique. There were very very unique. Market it does seem absolutely obvious that the big loser here is authors and especially authors of fiction. Because what always used to happen. Is you'd have an auction. Your agent would like send out your manuscript to a bunch of different publishers and then highest bidder would win but now when all of those different publishers owned by the same company they basically just agree between each other which one of them is going to make the bed and then they don't need to worry about what the other one's going to because they all know that they're not going to receive a competitive bid from one of the others so it's very bad for author advances. I is that enough for the doj to try and stop this anti monopoly of i. Don't yeah it's a good question. I mean i think from what we've seen recently. It seems like it's definitely more likely than anyone probably would have said like five years ago. I mean he had like the mcgraw hill. S- engagements textbooks but still that was merged that with stopped on antitrust grounds. So i i think this will definitely be scrutinized quite a bit whether or not they consider the consider it a obviously a less competitive market whether the considerate monopolistic is definitely up for debate. The other losers here are going to be. You're gonna have a lot of people are gonna lose their jobs if this goes through about specifically what they said in terms of where you get you know your your synergies is that they're gonna cut a bunch of sales and marketing jobs and they. I've got more importantly they're going to cut a bunch of like weird back in like you know that whole infrastructure of printing and distribution now can be like diedhiou placated which we east coast media types. Don't like to think about like the truck is driving the books around to bookstores. Whatever books a big heavy physical objects which way like a lot of physical. Wait if you add. The mola something like the obama but with seven hundred pages and sold two million copies already. That's a lot of just logistics of moving around the country and those logistics or get centralized and that's a bunch of savings right there and one of the interesting things about the book industry right now is the covid. Pandemic has her book printing clients at exactly the same time as everyone is reading more books especially things like mary trump. and so. There's this incredible crunch all of the publishers who who were meant to be publishing books right now which have been sheduled for months or a year pushing them back because there's just no capacity to print them because you have people like barack obama mary trump just dominating the printing presses so we're gonna have a lot of books really crowding onto the book shelves in the next year or two which have been pushed back. Thanks to cove it. Yeah he also had a lot of books pushback because authors weren't gonna be able to tours and so publishers. Were concerned about that. So they push a big names as well
Food for Medicine with Afsaneh Naimollah
"Welcome back to the outcomes racket Sal Marquez is here and today I have the privilege of hosting of San ant- name Mola she's an accomplished healthcare executive and investment banker shows currently an executive in residence at plug and play the world's largest early stage, VC Fund and corporate accelerator. She's also the managing partner of Zen partners an investment banking firm based in Palo, Alto and New York covering the next generation of health TECH COMPANIES OF WE'RE GONNA be diving into innovation and healthcare. Venture. Capital and I'm so privileged to have of Santa here with us of sonnet. Thanks so much for joining pleasure so Asana. You know you do some fascinating work in in healthcare and will dive into that the venture front, but before we do, would love to hear more about what inspires your work and healthcare, you know I've been on investment banker on a strategy advisor for over thirty years on I started my career in technology, so I come to healthcare with A. Fairly deep knowledge of what I call Horizontal Technology on about twenty years ago. Honestly I fell into healthcare. Just doing couple of deals, I'm then longside got you know the dynamics of the industry? was you know no looking back and I got heavily involved. On really started focusing on on the industry, and really for three three main reasons one is. You know, it is the largest industry in our economy. It's eighteen percent of our economy. It's the only industry that directly impacts every human being in our country. I'm probably most him personally an industry that despite his side. Is Social Impact. Is! Probably still to this day way behind. For example Fintech on some other technology, so it's an industry that. Really need. In my opinion innovation and it was really true technology bad. We can bend the cost curve so I said well. I have some good tech background. I love the industry. And it was almost like a calling I said that's how I'm going to get involved with this How Technology and make sure that I focused on. Sectors of the. Industry that could bend the cost curve. I love it. I love it, you you sort of just accidentally through a couple deals guide involved. Then strategically said. This is a good fit and the impacts big. So, let's let's roll up our sleeves. Yeah. I love it, and and so and so now you know your your role as managing partner of Zen Partners and executive in residence at logging play, you're seeing a lot of main stage work happening and so companies coming up with new ideas and businesses succeeding businesses failing you know. What would you say you? Guys are up to and really I. Guess, where should we focus you know? Should we focus on fly, play or Zen partners or more? I can't. We can touch base on both really there come with interchangeable so you know as an Investment Bank banker I've done about fifteen mergers and acquisitions transactions I was raised over twelve billion dollars or capital two. I feel private placement. Offering equity offering. You know when you do so many deals on you. You know I've met fell thousands of CEO's on thousands of companies over my thirty some year career. You've developed what I call an experiential intuition You know a pattern recognition, so what the reason when I moved to Silicon Valley three years ago from New York. Play. Invited me to become an E. R. and I was like okay. I don't have a lot of early stage experience, but I know a lot about healthcare and I know a lot about. Next Generation Technologies, and the opportunity afforded me listening to pitches like twenty thirty pitchers month. Of different companies, addressing different parts of healthcare, and then you know, it's been three and a half years now and when I wouldn't yards do the plug and play. We do really two things one is we help the five different venture funds that we have pick investment. And more importantly we take some of those mid stage for me. It's most of the early to mid stage company. We take it under our wing Ers. We work with founding teams on. From product strategy go to market strategy channel strategy and help them. We articulate their value proposition because especially the first time founders. They are sitting on a great technology, but I would say a good eighty percent of them. Do Not Know How to articulate the value.
Land of the Giants
Who really killed Blockbuster Video?
"I'm Peter Kafka and I'm Ronnie. Mola and this is landed the giants. The net flicks effect a podcast on Netflix's disrupted. Hollywood change the way we watch TV and movies. And how it should have been squashed by giant competitor, but ended up turning the tables and killing the video store. Okay Peter. Let's go back in time long. Before we had netflixing chill, we had blockbuster nights. Remember this tonight. Make a blockbuster. In the nineties and early outs, blockbuster was the world's largest video rental chain. It was a huge part of American culture at its peak, it was bringing in six billion dollars a year in revenue and had more than nine thousand stores around the globe. It was the place to rent movies it was. Social place like teens would meet their. You know people you know because that was one of the few things that you could always do as a high school student. Was You know you could get together with your friends and rent a movie and go to the cool, parents, house, and watch it where there's a copy of the wiz that I would like hide in a corner at blockbuster because I always wanted to be there when I come back for, and we would go in there her car then go into blockbuster and pick out a movie, and then we get a little treat you know I don't know. We pick two to three movies scary WanNa funny one and then in action. Nobody has the movie I want I. Even Video Blockbuster probably hasn't I mean? We have over ten thousand videos? Five six o'clock on a Friday night. Phones are ringing off the hook. It's never what do you have? That's good. It's always what you have. That's new that last voices Jason Bailey nowadays. He writes about movies for places like vulture in the New York Times, but years ago, he used to work at a bunch of video stores, including blockbuster, which he says wasn't as great as we might remember. I have much more nostalgic for the video store. Then I do for blockbuster in particular which really in a lot of ways. Ways killed the video store, flattening it into the sort of McDonald's version of the video store, right? That's what I remember about. Blockbuster killed my local video store replaced with blockbuster, which I did not like blockbusters were everywhere, and everyone rented from there, but that didn't mean it was a great customer experience, one of the big things that you always hear people who who don't remember blockbuster through a Golden Glove nostalgia talk about where the late fees or as they tried to rebrand them additional day fees or additional rental fees. They were outrageous. Boxer made a ton of money on late visas or additional day fees running. At one point late fees made up seventy percent of blockbuster prophet, and along with this highly fees, there are a long list of other problems limited new releases, long lines, shitty customer service all which is lousy for customers, which also made it lousy for employees. I got cursed out a fair amount. Again for you know just doing what I was told to do by corporate, but yes I would, I would be told that you know that. We were monsters that we were bloodsuckers. I had that thing back on time I saw you. You take it out of the box I was like I got called out like that I had people tell me I saw you in here when I dropped it off. You tell me you didn't check it in on time. I'm not paying that if it got heated, but this is all factored into blockbusters business model. The company even had a term for it managed. Dissatisfaction managed to satisfaction is a term that John Antioch. Oh the CEO Blockbuster explained to me, and that is is long as you give a consumer and. And of what they want. They will ignore the fact that they're not always getting what they want. This is unique heating. She's a journalist who covered enough for Reuters she also wrote a book and made a documentary about Netflix's history blockbuster understood that only twenty percent of customers who came in would get the movie that they wanted, and they would have to get something else the other eighty percent of the time. They weren't happy, but they weren't horribly angry. Managed dissatisfaction is one of the great corporate euphemisms for screw you give. Give us your money. You are ever going to hear and if you can't remember what it was like to go to. Blockbuster occurred analogy. Be Like an airplane. You WanNa. Airplanes are like it sucks every way, and if you want to improve it in any way, you have to pay additional fees for everything that is blockbuster in a nutshell in the nineties, yeah, customers felt trapped, and with all the smaller mom and pop stores being squeezed out. They didn't really have a better alternative, and then all of a sudden they did. Again you've gotta remember. That netflix emerged in the late nineties when the Internet still felt pretty new. Amazon was just becoming release accessible selling books online. They're doing it cheaper than the competition and they didn't have to operate stores, so Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph to tech guys in the bay area are surveying the landscape and they thought hey, we could be the Amazon of something else. There's a better way to rent movies as many as you want. Go to Netflix DOT COM. COM Bake a list of the movies you want to see and about one business day you'll get three. DVD's kept him as long as you want. Without late fees DVD's had just come out. And suddenly there was this new way to watch movies that didn't involve these bulky VHS tapes. DVD's were smaller, more durable, and you could ship them for price of a postage stamp. So? Hastings Randolph thought. Hey, we could be them on of movies. This may seem obvious now, but at the time this was a big deal. Suddenly instead of having to go to the store and deal the crummy customer experience, he could stay home. You can hit a button and someone somewhere sent you the dvd you wanted instead of the one you had to settle. for which Netflix customers loved by the way they tended to order? The kind of movies at blockbuster didn't feature or even carry it all they had all the indie movies and older movies and blockbuster was focused on what was new.
Christopher Kimball's Milk Street Radio
Chef Iliana de la Vega discusses authentic Oaxacan cuisine
"Chatting with chef. Ileana de la Vega about authentic hocken. Cuisine Ileana welcome to milk street. Thank you very much for having me here. Let me just start by saying of Ben to Your Restaurant in Toronto in Austin a couple times in the last two years and it was the best Hawkin food of had including in. Walk US terrific so you lived in Mexico City remarried there. You move to to start Eldorado restaurant but but you had trouble being accepted in some way. So explain that to me. Yeah what happened? I mean as you mentioned I was born in Mexico City and eventually ninety four actually moved to a hacker. We opened the restaurant until ninety seven. And Yeah my mom is what was Oaxacan but because I was in born in Oaxaca was not supposed to be cooking blog on food. I mean I guess that things have changed you know hook us a little bit more open now than it was there but You know for them. I wasn't outsider. So you had the restaurant there and then in two thousand six you left so what happened between ninety seven and two thousand six in terms of your restaurant and the politics and everything in the region. Well we were very successful restaurant. Join despite of like many were huggins. Consider me that it was an tighter and then on two thousand six there was turmoil in Oaxaca social unrest and so we had you know the economy collapsed in. We had to close a restaurant. And then I bet charlie we moved to Texas Allston. Imprecise you and I spoke a while back about what is moulay and your definition of it was totally different than what I thought. So could you just break it down for me? I mean you said there were three basic components to moulay. Maybe you could just take us through the concept right. They are like three groups of ingredients to make malate so one will be vegetables and by vegetables. How you also mean chillers. Okay so tomatoes tomatoes onions and garlic and such and then we have spices. So let's say black pepper cumin Cinnamon sugar sold chocolate. And then the third one very important one for these are the figures could be bread or it could be muscle for making tortillas and also not like almonds so there are the three of you take a little bit of each in each one of those categories you will make a molly molly. Negro is very complex. But I I gather that some Malays actually are much simpler than that rhyming. Talk to us about a simple mobile. Yeah okay like let's say like me. For example I think is the simplest one. You'll take a you know. Fresh Materials Green Sheila's Serrano's Jalapenos. Or one of those onion garlic and put it in the blender and then you fried mixture and then you add some herbs fresh herbs so I do up Ohio Santa Parsley and episode. That's my traditional one. And then you have the thickener. Which is the muscle that you dilute. I in a little bit of water and you added so those are the basic ingredients and you can make that. Molay in twenty minutes rather than the. Mola negative that he takes three days. I want you to describe because I've had your Molin Agro and it was divine if you taste a really well made Molin agro. Ideally what should it be like? What is important when you make him? Only non one of those stents out not on one of those flavors. So you will they said. Oh it is a little cinnamon and then the next. We'll give you a little bit of cumin for example or the next bite will give you a little bit of chocolate so each You know spoonful that you take the molly will give you a different note Let's let's talk about some common things in Oaxaca. The Mole Yetay Which I had for breakfast WanNa talk about how that's made. And maybe the tradition of that dish. Well then we get something simple that you will find all over Mexico. Norling OAXACA somewhat yet is believe traditionally like by a piece of bread like a kind of a French bread and then put a little bit of a border in it then beans and then some cheese will melt and then you put it on there. They'll win or something to get kind of. Nice melting and cross the cheese. And then you make Salsa Makina which is like Salsa Pico they get your tomatoes onion Sheila Bair the Serrano or Jalapeno see land throw and a little bit of lime juice in they knew. Serve it with it on the site. It was a terrific practice they also a Santa which is Pork Lard. Is that often used as a primary layer for lots of tacos enchiladas? Is that something that's common ingredient there. Okay largest one thing like Hitler this when you have a big piece of pork and then you take out the fat than you cook. It is slowly. And then you're renders fat right so that is large and then ASEAN thought when you're making teacher on the skin and you're buying it in large then at the bottom you will some pieces and beats over. You know the fat told and that's why it's colored it has it has color to the. You're not open a Tortilla. Like freshly made handmade of course and then you put a little bit of a layer of that and then you eat it with your meal Let's talk about the Tortilla for second in Oaxaca. According to a tee I guess in northern Mexico it's a wheat Tortilla but the tortillas in Oaxaca almost could pass for a week Tortilla. They're very fine. They're very tender. They're nothing like would you get here? So is that because you use different kinds of corn is the process differ. Why are they so much better a little bit of favorite thing? I is the the taste that they still do. Heirloom Cornyn in Mexico. Roy is one so sometimes. You taste the TORTILLAS here in United States. Then they're like sweet so that is wrong. Sorry that is like super wrong so that was one of the things that when we moved to the states and I began to as a Dorothy. Yes here like no by no means. I will be able to serve this in their restaurant every neighbor so you know thank God. We found now corn from Mexico many times from Oaxaca directly and so we proceeded in house and then we grind it. What would you like to tell me about the way you cook that? I don't understand. Well I guess you think that I have problem whether you notice plane. The people You know one is Mexican. Food is not necessarily too spicy. I mean depends on the taste of the taste. Parts of the person but general is just about the flavors The other one is it. People that have had through the years coming to restaurant. Said like this is not Mexican food. I mean for years. We didn't have a flour tortillas in the restaurant in is like oh no but this is not a not as well. How can I explain you? You know that the corner two years is the basic you know and it is your of the also very delicate flavors so those things I think is the what I would like people to understand better about Mexican Food
This Week in Machine Learning & AI
Neural Architecture Search and Googles New AutoML Zero with Quoc Le
"Welcome to the PODCAST. Hi Everyone. It's great to have you on the show I've followed research for Your work for quite some time and I'm looking forward to digging into some of the new things that you're working on but before we do that I'd love to have you share a little bit about your background and how you got started working in machine learning okay so I was born in Vietnam. I did my Undergrad in Australia. And in my second year. My undergrad I started some project doing machine London with Alex. Mola a back in Australia and back. Then I was played with. Kodo methods Then I Did my PhD AT STANFORD. A on a lot of deep learning back in the day when deployed in whispers or very cool. And that's the route two thousand seven and around two thousand eleven I did a summer internship at Google and that was when Google Brin project was founded so when I was there that was a long and Jackie Naan Greco data was there and I. It was the sun so we started out small. That sounds cool. Yeah and then I did some of the Scaling Up Neuro networks with Google Britain folks and then You know at the end Up to two years did some work on machine translation with the media and Oreo VR. He's now did mine. Owner of Ilya is now at opening I and we develop sold end to end. Solution methods and Around two thousand sixteen. I started looking into more like You Know Auto. Mau Architecture search and more recently are looking to Malacca together with Otto may also look into Sent me supervised learning and it's awesome awesome now. You mentioned early on doing work with Alex. Mullah was he was this before he was at Carnegie Mellon was visiting in Australia. He was a professor in Australia. Yeah I I went to a university. In a small air. In the capital city Austrailia go Kendra. He was yeah camera and he was Professor Edward Research. So I thought I had. I have along Very interested in AI and machine learning and took me for that. I took a class data mining and so on and talk a little bit boring but the ability to actually learn. It's actually a super fascinating so I contacted him and he was moonlight co methods machine learning and we worked together for maybe a few years before he went to he went to America then. Cmu and Amazon. Okay okay so a lot of your. Recent work has been focused on this idea of You know automating machine learning and neural architecture surge to allow machines to find the best deep learning architectures in like. It's a little bit about how you arrived at working in that area. What some of the motivations were for getting started digging into that problem so I've been Along interested in this idea of self improvement machine should be self improving itself a machine learning and even and when I started doing co methods with Alex. I always ask him. You know how the Dakota bandwith and so on how some of the HYPOC Ramat does include methods decided and apparently they decided by using things like Cross validation on then where I work on. Koroma two narrow networks. My hope is to make the hype. Affirmative go away. But that's how is the opposite so if you look at the a Kabul Lucien neural networks at has a lot of hype privatised right like how many how many layers you want it to be and how many channels you wanted to be. And what are the some of the high assize apprentice since on a Coulda with all the training parameters? Yeah all learning. Dry and as researcher develop more and more techniques FAW EURONET. There's more decisions that you have to make. That feel like. This is like a problem that can be helped by a little bit of automation so So I I observe a lot of my colleagues who will when designing networks and I asked him about the principles of design. Your neural networks. And you started are having some really solid principles like Skip CONNECTION SO. The gradient can flow through the network concern. But as you tune the network Karen Hata do no longer have the principal is around. You know trial and error right you you try this a little bit and simply with better so you try that more so. I think that that is something that may be ready for automation so even during my Grad School. I already talked about trying this but I thought you know. Maybe we didn't have enough compute because training net already takes took me days so when I saw that new control. Units are are in thirty minutes. Something like that on on safer I thought. Oh maybe this is the right time to try this. So that's when I started doing this. Newer architecture search in two thousand sixteen. It's interesting that you know. Even with all of the compute resources of Google. You had to wait until the time was compressed. Enough in order to be able to tackle the problem. Yeah to get really good results. You want the networks will be really big and that will take a long time to train. Yeah and it's it's It's funny coming from me that we have so much resources that will go train in EURONET still taking a long time And so maybe talk about the the first steps in In that area. Did you jump right into neural architecture? Search or was that the you know a a an end stage or end result of this work where I I on some of the related ideas on and off since two thousand twelve like playing around with how to do. Better hyper profitable tuning and none of that. It's really published. Because I didn't have good results have pugh and so on so so I tried it on and off over the time you know every year I would set out some time to try this idea for a few months and you know and it didn't work very well because like a procurement song and then Two Thousand Sixteen. I met Barrett's off would as my colleague now at Google and he's very talented. So we say oh. Let's let's try at the idea of Jews in like a reinforcement learning to generate and network like a little layer in an network for for a ceasefire model. Seafoam motto. Is already at the time you could say that you know enough of you depends on how where you want to be but you from thirty minutes to a few hours and the seems like about the right amount of time to get this going and my prediction is that you have to train. Maybe either between from one thousand to ten thousand bottles and I did a backup our calculation and thought. Oh this might be the right time to do it but you know I have tried this some of these related ideas in much before

Difference Between a Maker and an Engineer in the Maker Movement
"Been this series of articles by a fellow who we've talked about on the show before Michael Mola's Hugh who's thankfully been around for quite a while and has not walked away like so many others have because they didn't get rich quick or something But he he's sticking to it and he's been writing a series of articles about the maker movement since make media went kind of bankrupt. They've re the make media folks have reinvented themselves into nonprofit and from what we hear Dale dougherty the guy who He didn't actually started. He started with The fellows O'Reilly Timaru Riley and Tim O'Reilly said ticket. And he got up and left and made his own little thing and and he and from what we hear. He has taken his own money and purchased from the holders. The people that owned the the properties to everything To get at the content and the titles and the names and things so supposedly Dale dougherty. Now Kinda owns it and what we hear. He's looking at making it into a nonprofit which sounds good. I think that might be the better way to go. And we'll talk about why in a second but mister you has kind of featured What's been happening to this? I'm using my finger. Air Quotes Maker Movement One thing about Mr use articles that he's never really stated explicitly and we would like to is the distinct and explicit difference between a maker and an engineer. So let's make something clear. People have been making things for quite a while. We've had the wheel for a while. Now it's just a few years. I didn't get invented when make make magazine came out. You know the fact. We've had these people. These strange beings go by the handle engineer for quite a while. Now but what's the difference between an engineer and a maker and there is a difference. I mean you can be an engineer and a maker of course sure but we believe that. There is an explicit distinction. That makes a person a maker versus engineer. And that's a person who's making something just for the sake of making it. They're not making it to meet a specific objective for some external pressure. Thing like you got to make this. They're not they're not. There's no gold. There's no necessarily a contract or a thing that has to be fixed because nobody really needs a life-size animated giraffe that they can drive around make refer cool and nobody really needs a giant statue with flames coming out of who knows what orphans. You really don't have. Don't give them any ideas. And if we look at the roots of the even the maker Faire and make media they themselves went to the artists from the burning men community and brought them in along with the folks who were the. What do you call them again? The the Jules Verne fanatics that water steam pulse team. And they do things just for the sake doing for the fun of it for the art of it for their motion of it and and we believe that defines a maker. That's what makes them maker and there's some differences in that in that light because now a maker does not necessarily mean they're an engineer. They could be an artist. Could be musician. They could just be a ten year old kid. Who's not sure what? What are your she wants to be or do that. But it sounds like fun to make this thing. That could be fun. It would be cool water. Some of the more impressive things you see more. Technically complex things you see are being made by people who are in their day jobs engineers and some of the ten year old kids grow up to become engineers because they were inspired by it in their in their youth. But but yeah. I think you're right in the. The central motivation is different now. Going to a university and interviewing some engineering. Phd's about the maker Movement. Is that kind of problematic? Because are they makers well? Yeah they're makers doing things for the fun of it. Some of them are the market. They've they've got their their budgets. They have to meet. They've got their students that got to teach the their goal directed there. I mean they could be makers they monto sit back and develop something fun. That's well within the realm of reality for them but that's not that's not their career. They're not making a career as a quote maker. Very few people do right. And as such what has to question if the whole idea of a maker movement makes sense for a financial endeavor probably not Does the maker Movement make sense as the basis for stem Maybe to get the initial interest. Yeah it's motivating that would be great but as the foundation for Stem I. I don't I don't think so. I think traditional education environments are essential for stem. You still have to learn the basics you still have to have the foundations all right and to be an engineer. You still have to know details that most makers just don't want to sweat sure but you can you can when you're trying to get kids motivated to learn stuff showing them you know some application of it that that interests them. Yes is much much more important. Oh Yeah Oh sure I mean I. It's it's in my opinion. It's a lot more fun than shooting at Aliens on screen sure area. But but I mean I I I show my kids. You know something that they're interested in. They're interested in building. Somebody I say okay well. Here's here's you know how you start but then you need your math. You Gotta learn this math in order to do this process. You know all right. So there's some motivation to learn some math skills that ordinarily most young folks say. Why do I need this? Yeah well you need it. In order to make the bullet go further right exactly. The Little Arrow go further at that. Get that piece to fit better. Whatever and this was never made clear by Mr you in any of his articles each simply kind of like most of the make media related kind of stuff just kind of glossed over the fact that there is a big difference between Disciplined Foundation Engineering and shoot from the hip having fun maker. Let solder it together and see if it works. It doesn't make is not synonymous with open source. No I don't agree with that Open source has a strong engineering foundation. All Open source came came from the software world. I mean I remember the early. Pdp Lebanon's they. The deck people sat here. It's open source that you could play with it and do whatever you want with it. But in the end we want in right and a lot of that is happening in this commune. This word. Yeah we do see that So it's not automatically you know. Open source equals maker. No I don't agree with that But there is overlap. Yeah definite overlap But that doesn't equate open source does not equate to the maker.
King Midas and the Satyr's Song
"King Midas and the Sater's song. Once upon a time in ancient Greece King Midas was bored. You'll may remember King Midas as the man who wished for a golden touch and soon found himself cursed by golden food. He couldn't eat and golden wine. He couldn't drink. You'd think that would have taught him his lesson for good but MIDAS was forever a misguided man misguided and full of agreed so strong he would have stolen the sun from the sky if he thought he could fit it into his his purse without burning his fingers. Baugh there's nothing to do old Midas blustered walking about his throne room. I'm taking a walk. Walk through the Royal Woods. See that no one bothers me. He took off his robe in stocked out the door near his palace. The wilds of Greece were open into him and wild were. This was still the time of Gods and monsters. Were you were as likely to run into a center as you were a horse and any any random apple may contain curse or blessing. So it wasn't much of a surprise when Midas soon came across a seder playing his pipes sater's were rogues but of mostly pleasant kind. They would play their tricks especially on those who didn't respect nature but usually we're content to enjoy themselves selves in the woods from the waist down they looked like goats standing on two legs and from the waist up they looked like men except for the great curving horns warns that adorned their heads. This particular Seder played his pipes. Beautifully spinning a lively rustic tune that soon had MIDAS tapping his does say. Did you enjoy the Song King Midas the Sader said when he had finished minus was surprised that he was recognized for a moment moment but then he realized this later was none other than pan himself God of the wilds and Lord of all sater's finally played aide Pan MIDAS said. What do you call it? Not One is called a lower for MIDAS. The Sader said. I wrote it for you do as I I need help. Man King Midas puffed himself up a bit that pants should need help from him made him feel royal and Regal indeed indeed. Of course my good man Herb Seder or pan he said. What can I do for you? Well L. I've made a wager with Apollo. He said we're supposed to have a musical competition this very afternoon. You Bet your pipes against Apollo the god of Music King Midas said shaking his head. I think you play beautifully but Apollo is music. It comes from him rolls off him like heat from an oven. I don't see how you could win at this pan laughed. Roguishly Shot MIDAS a wink. We'll see it's my job to bring a judge to the competition. He said you come as the judge in declare me the winner. Well this sounds all well and good for you said MIDAS leaning on an old olive tree but why should I do that. We both know Apollo is sure to sound best true true who said Pan but if you declare me the winner I'll split the prize with you. Apollo has wagered a Golden Lyre and a golden draw against my pipes and a bounty of fruit and herbs. Call me the winner and and the Golden Lyre is yours. My Good King Midas now any half clever man would have learned their lesson when they turned their own kid to gold and nearly nearly starved to death trying to eat golden food. But as we know King Midas was not half clever he was maybe a quarter clever on a good day but even that was pushing it so when he thought of Apollo's Golden Lyre all heavy bodied with finely woven strings like rays of Sun. His mouth began to water. His palms began to each his hair began to sway and tickle like grass in the breeze. His brain began to sing into him a simple chance. That went gold Gold Gold Gold Gold Gold Gold Gold I think MIDAS said licking his lips tips that we have a deal. Perfect said Pan slapping the king on the back. I'm supposed to meet Apollo at the river nearby. You're by come now. Let's go win a contest together. They made their way through the woods. It was a gorgeous day with the birds birds singing and the critters of all kinds leaping and rustling about the trees when they came to the river it was even more lovely than before. Because they're air sat apollo he was a tall and golden figure holding the U shaped harp called the Liar sitting on a rock by the river near him. The birds seemed to sing sweeter. The river babbled beautifully and all the myriad harmonies of the natural world seem to come together in a single. Google heartwarming song then King Midas. He called setting down his lawyer and clapping his hands. Even the clap seemed to be a song in itself. I'm glad you've decided to come. Pan I see you have your pipes and Midas you must be here to judge King Midas. It's not a degrading and took a seat on an old log. Your exactly right sir. I wouldn't miss the chance to hear to gods such as yourselves make music. I'm I'm sure it'll be quite the show. So should we take this contest off said pan knocking his pipes free of for against his thigh. Why we got our instruments we gotTA judge? Oh about that said Apollo. I think more judges are better than just one. Wouldn't you say well said Pan looking about nervously. I suppose one could say that good. Well I invited a couple of our friends to be impartial. Judges he said shooting a sly. Look at King Midas come onto the Mola's come now. Texas King Midas gaped as the two judges emerged from the wilds quite literally to Mola's was the spirit of the mountain itself and Ted. This was the grandmother of the fresh rivers that gave Greece life now pan immediately saw that he had been outsmarted. He was the god of nature so the mountain and the rivers were his domain. He couldn't accuse them of being biased against him. If anything they would look on him more favorably than other judges. Hello to Mola's allowed at this. He said it's lovely to see you on this shah. This fine day Tethong said her voice a watery whisper. We look forward to hearing your music. Yes boomed into Mola's with all the might of the mountains play for Rosh pay on what I hear. Your Song Pan nodded and leapt nimbly upon Hannah flat rock by the river using it as a sort of stage. He put his wooden pipes to his lips and began to blow a melody. It was simple a song of the wood and the trees. It's melody was that of a hiker speed and it's notes soared like an early spring breeze by anyone's judgment. It was a beautiful song. And when he finished and laid down his pipes king midas tumultuous tempests and even Apollo had tears standing in. There is beautiful. Wonderful cried King Midas his. His heart soared pan. Could win and it wouldn't even be cheating. The Seder played that beautifully MIDAS turned and looked at Apollo Paulo eyeing his heavy Golden Lyre. The arms were solid and shining the strings like he imagined finely woven rays of sunshine. And soon soon it would be his wonderful tune said tests but we must hear Apollo play. Yes rumbled to Mola's the nature. God has proven his worth. And now it's time for the Golden God to show us. I saw song. Apollo smiled and stood towering over pan and King Midas. He stepped up onto the flat rock. Stage each and then sat cross-legged cradling close his lyre. Here is a simple song for you. He said brushing the golden strings rings and sending out a ripple of music like the warmth of a perfect summer day I hope you like friends When the song was finished they didn't have tears in there is no? They were weeping openly any pan and king midas included. The song had touched them deeply. It was more than natural. It was supernatural. It was more than music. It was a great therman Cord that stretched from the Heavens to Earth and echoed deeply through their souls

First Soy, Then Almond: Now Bananas are Upending the Milk Market
"<music> ah from wondering i'm david brown and this is business words daily on this thursday august twenty second great to have you with this first companies were milking soybeans then almonds cashews oats and even peas will now they've gone bananas. That's right eight a startup. His introduced what it's calling banana milk lactose intolerant banker named jeff richards started experimenting with more palatable versions of alternative milk back in twenty twenty twelve. Everyone likes bananas he figured and so that was the fruit he chose. He worked with food scientists to make the beverage taste better than just watered down banana puree array adding organic sunflower seed butter cinnamon and sea salt finally happy with the flavor he launched the company called moala. <hes> in two thousand sixteen richards began with placements in fifteen stores in central texas. The beverage comes inappropriately friendly. Looking containers bananas are friendly food after all squeezed onto shelves next to carton after carton of alternative and regular. Milk's wouldn't be easy to grow this company as yahoo finance. Wrote richards is bringing being bananas to a dairy. I'll knife fight not to mention a legislative as we've reported here. Previously several states are trying to outlaw the use of the word milk for any beverage that doesn't come from a cow or maybe a goat while most haven't succeeded yet as the dairy industry continues to decline desperation desparation among dairy suppliers grows so you can count on that fight to continue as these kinds of entrepreneurial origin stories tend to go ho foods notice that organic gluten free low calorie banana milkin tried it out that of course led to other mainstream grocers paying attention today. It's in about out two thousand whole foods safeway wegmans kroger and costco stores across the country richard says the company will add another one thousand stores by the end of the year not to be outdone by competitors offering other kinds of alternative milks moala also sells almond and oat milk but banana milk richard claims is the company's company's best seller sales grew nine hundred percent year over year. Fast company tells us as the fastest of any alternative milk but wait a minute. You need to keep keep in mind. That kind of growth is easier to achieve when you're starting from a tiny base right that's true even with banana milks relatively high price. It's five dollars to six dollars for for forty eight ounces or about a third of a gallon so what's mola's story mean well. Two things one is that an entrepreneur recognized that for many consumers alternative milks have a taste problem and he said to find out well an alternative to the alternatives. The other is far for more serious for the dairy business. Banana milk is just one more jab to hurting dairy suppliers dean foods owner of land-o-lakes and white milk brand dairy. A pure among others appears to be in freefall. It stock dropped more than thirty five percent last week. After it reported a quarterly loss that company a leader in the dairy business business blamed its loss on retailers discounting private label milk in order to boost sales dairy sales as a whole of declined three percent year over year her while plant based milks have gone in the other direction. They're growing at a robust six percent. A year and shoppers are willing to pay almost twice as much for alternative milks. It's easy to smile at bananas america's favorite fruit but the rise of alternative milks. Whatever we wind up calling them could also caused some far more gloomy consequences for america's dairy farmers. We'll keep you posted from wondering this business wars daily you like our show shared on twitter those one hundred forty characters sure would would make us happy. I'm david brown we'll see.
